High in the mountains
Nice campground and most sites have concrete parking pads. Do have pizza and wings available for dinner and pancakes in the morning. Very quiet. Central City not all that impressive unless you like casinos but Idaho Springs right up the road well worth a visit.
Mile high city x 2!!!
I think we were at 8700 feet in elevation! I know it was over 8,000 for sure. We were coming from the West and had to take the next exit up from the exit in the directions because of construction work due to a rock slide. We enjoyed the drive thru the casino/ mining town of Blackhawk and Central City, but the route to the KOA just kept climbing and climbing and climbing. We were literally on the top of a mountain! The KOA is beautiful and the views phenomenal. The sites were a good size. We normally get pull-thrus for our 40' 5th wheel but had no problem with this back in site. They had an excellent camp store, and a jacuzzi. You can even have pizza delivered to your RV. They also have shuttles to the casinos if you're into that. After we got set up, the fog rolled in. Then, we got a dusting of snow overnight. It was just beautiful. We accidentally reserved this KOA thinking it was on the West End of Denver! LOL! So I learned a lesson about doing my due diligence when reserving a campsite. It was an unintended stop for us and about an hour out of our way, but it was an experience... And that's what this lifestyle is all about! We would definitely stay here again, but I doubt we will have a reason to;)
Access for Big Rigs & Environment
Environment & view Phenomenal!
Ease of driving to this park Big Rigs towing a trailer - POOR. The entire length of our rig is 63'. The directions have you take I-70 to central city parkway; however, employees and other visitors say its easier going through the canyon, which would be 40 & route 6. Apparently, the hairpin turn we had to make after driving 8 miles to obtain the last road to the park was UNACCEPTABLE. More than a 90 degree turn by far! Then the climb was straight up causing the back of our car hauler to scrape the ground being damaged. If you didn't make this turn you would end up going to black hawk & turning around there (somewhere), to come back to the intersection to go straight up the hill.
Colorado dept of transportation needs to get a clue and make access from the I-70 to this park & apartment complex they built in the area. Instead of being able to exit right at the park you get to wave as you go by, to drive 8 miles out of the way and negotiate this ridiculous right turn. When all of it could be avoided. If we were the owners here, I would definitely take it up with them because of the road traveled it will keep us from coming again :-(.
