This is a small KOA, no swimming pool, but it has everything you need in general. RV sites, tent sites, and a few Kabins. The cabins have electric radiators, which is good because nights in this area are often chilly year-round. If you tent camp,...More

One of my favorite KOA's. Well-maintained, clean, and situated on a hillside in a beautiful valley, surrounded by mountains. The sites are terraced up the hillside, and kept level. Only drawback is no pool, but realistivally, not sure how having one would be practical for...More

We stayed here in late August and the location is very pretty. The altitude is about 10,000 feet, so people with altitude issues should acclimatize first. The management were friendly and helpful. The restrooms, showers, and laundry room were very clean. The sites are not...More

Sites are narrow and not real level but acceptable. Laundry room very clean. We wanted someplace cool and we definitely got it here (came from Arizona's high heat). Love the town of Cripple Creek and look forward to spending the day there tomorrow.

At 10,000 feet above sea level, the Cripple Creek KOA is the highest KOA in the world. It is always cool (normal mid-June to mid-August highs 70-80, normal lows 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit) and never humid. There are glorious sunsets with quiet, restful nights and fabulous star gazing . We have a Colorado high country setting, a peaceful mountain location bordering BLM forest land.

The Cripple Creek/Victor area is full of things to do - Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, live entertainment at the Butte Theater, steam train ride between Cripple Creek and Victor, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, CC/Victor Gold Mining Company which is a huge commercial gold reclamation operation, Cripple Creek Museum, nearby horseback riding, hiking up Trachyte Knob adjacent to the campground, fishing at Skaguay or Eleven Mile reservoirs, as well as numerous casinos in Cripple Creek for your gambling pleasure. It is always fun to look for the donkeys that have roamed around Cripple Creek for years.

The campground is located centrally to the Colorado Springs/Pike's Peak area attractions as well as the Royal Gorge Country attractions, each area being 45 minutes to one hour away. Guests use us as a base-camp for going to these other areas. We can keep you busy for days! Our staff is able to help with reservations for our guests at numerous Colorado Springs and Royal Gorge attractions, e.g. Colorado Springs/Manitou Springs Cog Railway, Flying W Ranch in Colorado Springs, Royal Gorge Route Train, Echo Canyon or other rafting companies in the Royal Gorge area.

At the campground, our RV sites are spacious pull-thrus with open, spectacular views of the high mountain countryside. Tent campers may choose a wilderness site in the aspen trees or a deluxe tent site that has a ramada cover, electricity and water. We have ten camping cabins and two camping lodges. We offer pancake breakfast service on Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day for an additional charge. There is a camping kitchen for use by our guests. We have a game room, volleyball and a playground. All of our sites have fire pits for great campfires on cool evenings. Children 6 years and younger are free and pets are welcome.

Leave the hot weather behind! Join us for COOL weather in our serene mountain setting!
