Not necessarily a bad campground. Good area and nice folks running it. Grass was plentiful and gravel roads were adequate. WiFi worked well. The only strange thing I can say is the animals who roam the park at will. We saw a donkey, goats and other critters who were pleasant enough to be around but seemed unrestrained. The problem this causes is the poop that seems to be everywhere in the grass. These are grazing animals and take a dump anywhere they are standing. To make it worse the rules stated in the handout say "no carpet or mats allowed in the grass." They protect and mow the grass often so anything laying on it will kill it out. Without a mat to wipe your feet the poop gets drug into the RV! Also there was a VERY large hog laying in the playground area under the swings. Children could not use the swings or other devices. Again...not necessarily a bad park but very strange with unrestrained animals everywhere. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunnison is a nice little western town with lots of shops and a nice atmosphere, very secure. Good place to eat at the Old Miner restaurant! Great menu and service.

Clean park with friendly staff. Only 2 complaints, (1) was that I was very close to my neighbor, maybe 7 ft away. The second complaint is that we shared a water spigot and when he used his water the pressure was nothing (10 PSI) on my side. Owner works very hard keeping the grounds looking good and he shows his appreciation for you being there. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 15 days and were extremely pleased with the campground. We had a back in sight and there was plenty of room between campers, at least where we were. The campsites alternated location of hookups so that determined it you pulled in or backed in. And, of course you might be facing your neighbor. The campground was well kept and the maintenance staff stayed busy. Location is perfect. Only 2 miles from downtown and very bicycle friendly. Lot of bicycle trails. Area attractions I.e. Black Canyon of the Gunnison close by. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

Downtown Gunnison.....great little town for shopping, eating and drinking. Don't miss the local museum. Be sure to try the Poutine @ The Dive.

We had the double site which was worth the extra money as we were staying for a week. This provided extra grass and more space between sites. Dusty as Colorado is, and so dry, but this KOA made concerted effort to minimize the dusty roads by watering them 2-3x\day. Laundry room, specifically the machines, were not very clean. No cable; limited OTA channels. Even though close to airport, there is limited noise as mostly smaller planes and only 1-2 commercial flights a day. Poor WiFi. Close to downtown Gunnison. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

Checking person is sort of knowledgeable but not totally in questions asked regarding KOA. The roads are a mess - dirt, rutted, mud holes everywhere. Spaces are a swath of gravel in between grass, which they are very proud of! The laundry room could use help. - 4 very small Washer and dryers. Just staying for the night so will not use most of facilities, but would not stay here again. Cost too much for what you get. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

nice young lady checked us in, efficiently and friendly. Site was E & W only on nice grass. site was spacious. quiet night. Our only problem was a cigar smoker across the CG road who smoked constantly outside, with the breeze blowing his stinky cigar towards us. We had to stay inside because of him. not the CG's fault, just a cigar smoker! We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The sites here are grass, at least early in the season. The roads are gravel mixed with dirt. The park is surrounded by farms, a mile and a half from downtown Gunnison, and in the flight path of the airport. In mid May, we never heard a plane. The showers and bathrooms had a recent remodel and where clean and in excellent condition. The Wifi worked intermittently. T-Mobile worked great. We stayed one night at another park nearby and my wife liked the KOA more. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

We used our KOA points to cover one of the two days there so the value was excellent. Wouldn't rate that way if we had to pay using just the 10% KOA discount. Wifi was slow and sometimes not available, water pressure was low and lots of broken picnic tables stacked around the edges of the park. Restrooms were recently upgraded. We had a fair Verizon voice and data signal. Park really isn't up to KOA's usual standards. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ok for a quick overnight stay. All sites on on the grass. It rained when we were there & I'm glad we didn't stay longer as the ground was pretty soggy pulling in & out. Crowded & close to your neighbors. No amenities. Drive in to town for goods & services. Some airplane noise at night. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

We have been full-timers for 2 yrs now and this has to be the worst experience we have had yet. Check-in was 2, we arrived at 2:30 and was told the people had not checked out of the site, checkout is 11. We were told they appear to be in no hurry so they took us to a site to sit at until our site was open. 3 1/2 hours after checkout and they aren't gone?? It was too hot to shut off the truck so we left it running for a/c. We asked if we could be put in another spot and they said they were all taken? What about the one they had us in temporarily?? After waiting 45 minutes the people had finally vacated the spot. We were led to our site and it was mud! Ruts were so large he tried to pull us further forward. The people next to us moved the next day due to the mud. Then we had neighbors that were construction workers that drank and talked very loudly with obscenities all evening long. The police showed up at 11 pm the last night we were there. Not sure who called. The only positive of the park was they were trying to make it look nice. Very crowded, and very poor management. Also, it is right by the airport and planes left as early as 7am and late as 10:30 pm. Very loud as it is right at the end of the runway. We would never stay here again. I've never rated a park this bad, but really wish we would've left immediately due to the bad management. We were in the "new" section which was supposed to be bigger, but still very crowded. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff member at the check-in desk was the sweetest. Very friendly staff. My site was OK. Big enough for trailer and tow but I had to move two picnic tables out of the way that were directly in the middle of the site. Looked like they were pushed aside by neighboring sites. Shared utilities and sites pretty close together in the pull-through area. Back-ins look like they had more room. Right next to the airport but the plane noise wasn't too bad. Close to downtown Gunnison. Wouldn't spend a week here but my one night stay was good. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Check in was smooth. Staff is excellent. There are a couple of ponds and plenty for the kids to do. It was central to everything we were doing. We will probably stay there again sometime in the future. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed before their official opening as an overnight in route. There were a couple other campers but pretty much empty so quiet and tons of room. This place has LOTS of stuff for kids to do and grown ups to sit in grassy shade. I imagine it is full everyight during the summer months. We camped at Gunnison KOA in a Motorhome.

very large grassy sites west of the city, yet only two miles from downtown. Very quiet, close to Gunnison River for rafting.
