This KOA is in Silt and conveniently located to Glenwood Springs (15 minutes east) and Rifle. It is right off I-70 and easy to get into and out of. Interior roads are easy to negotiate. All utilities and Verizon worked well. 60 cable TV channels. I rated our site "good." The "excellent" sites are the patio sites right on the Colorado River (sites 36, 37, & 38, and W-1 through W-14). We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

See the falls at Falls of Rifle State Park. Eat at The Miner's Claim in Silt, the food is excellent. The Glenwood Brewery is also very good.

We stayed for one night. On arrival staff was awesome, friendly, showed us to our site, recommended restaurant (pizza delivery - yes!), showed us laundry facilities ($3 small washer, $1.75 small dryer that needs extra $). Site was easy to get into and hookup. Great view behind us, I-70 in front of us (very noisy). But no need to unhook. Park half full, plenty of washers. Pool, splash pad under construction, trails along Colorado River. Nice spot with good amenities. The next morning we got up and discovered water from the sprinklers had filled our fire pit, soaked our mats, made a pond around the utilities. Sent several emails to office asking for shutoff of water. No response. Finally staff showed up and said they were shutting off water due to a broken sprinkler. Meanwhile, we couldn't get to our hookups to get finished to get on the road... No apologies, no acknowledgement of the problem. 2 inch deep water/mud, soaked shoes, socks and muddy jeans (which were just washed in expensive washer...) Customer service seriously lacking. Still no reply two days later. They were quick to respond to email questions prior to booking. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Campground was clean with level sites. We had a waterfront spot and it was terrific. If the weather had been better we could have kayaked right from our site. Nice camp store and the staff were friendly and helpful. About 50-ish miles from Grand Mesa and Colorado National Monument. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The nicest KOA we have visited. Well maintained, spacious, friendly and efficient staff, beautiful setting awesome fenced dog area. This park has it all. Generally not a KOA fan, but if they were all like this one, we would be regulars. Roads are well graded gravel. Sites are level gravel with convenient utilities. Cable was good, Verizon coverage was good. Didn't need Wi-Fi for internet access. Plenty of space between sites. Trees are young so very little shade. Beautiful setting along the Colorado River. Close and easy access to Glenwood Springs. Noise from I-70 was not bothersome. Recommend this KOA and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is easy to navigate but the spaces are a bit short and our towed car barely fit. They told us we couldn't park on the grass, so we had to park the car elsewhere. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 nights and loved this KOA. It is probably the best KOA we have ever stayed at. Our site was long enough for our 41' MH, Jeep and the neighbors full size truck and we still had room. (We let them park in our spot since they didn't have room in theirs). Our site was level, good WiFi and great views. Fishing was great on the Colorado River only steps away. Very Clean park, lots of grass and the sites are spaced out very well. Probably the only KOA that doesn't smash everyone in together. This KOA is big rig friendly.

We pull a 43 ft fifthwheel with an F350 Dually Truck and sites are wide enough to park next to your RV and still have your awnings and slides out. Most other parks would have double the number of sites but this one provides huge grass areas between each site!! Checkin was easy and fast. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Other RVers were really friendly. The site (#31) was PERFECTLY level!! Our site backs up to the river so very little road noise (there is road noise at the front of the park but not bad) There is more road noise on the West side because the park curves a bit so those sites are closer to the highway. This park offers absolutely lovely cabins of various sizes plus big teepees!!. The park is on a sandy surface with a light dusting of gravel on the laneways. We are here in May - last snow was about 10 days ago so no dust at this time of year. The site is gravel with a picnic table. The depth of the gravel pad differs per site. Nice trees but still small. The sites are very wide which is really nice. Utilities worked well. Pretty good WIFi and nice Cable TV. Good coverage with AT&T cell and data; as well as Verizon broadband wifi. And, our satellite worked well. No begs. Park has a nice kids' playground, plus plenty of grass areas for running around. Pool and Spa just built and not open yet. Really nice splash park for the kids is being built now. They have the best K9 Kamp I've seen. Huge, fenced in with thick soft grass for running and playing off leash. I'd recommend this to anyone who needs to stay a day or two in the area or for a family vacation. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this campground to be very nice. It is only 4 years old and looks it. Nice long, level sites with room around them for a table and patio. They have all levels of sites from tent sites to fancy sites with cement patios. The hook-ups are well placed and in good shape. The office has food, t-shirts and RV supplies to sell. They also have a book listing lots of places in the area to visit and lots of restaurants to eat at.Though it is right off the interstate and very convenient to get to, we heard no sounds that disturbed our sleep. You can walk into town - ask about the tunnel under the Interstate. We joined KOA and got a 10% discount on the rate. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

Our site was a long and level. The spacing between sites spacious for an RV park. The bathrooms, showers, laundry, and pool area (not yet open) all looked newer and were clean. More KOAs should strive to be as good as this one. Although the park is just off of Interstate 70, there wasn't much road noise. During the night, the noise from the railroad on the other site of the interstate was acceptable. We had good data speeds on both Verizon and AT&T. We stayed for two nights as a layover between Moab and Denver. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

This place is fabulous. Lots of room between sites. Beautiful view of the mountains. Plenty of full baths (toilet, sink and shower), concrete patios, level gravel sites. It's exceptionally clean and neat. We stayed on our way to Utah. Every campground should be like this one. The staff are exceptionally helpful and welcoming. They understand customer relationships. We had a site on the river and the view was beautiful. Saw Bald Eagles most evenings along with lots of other birds. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great RV Park. We stayed on our way to Moab as well as coming home. We stayed in the deluxe pull thru sites. They were plenty long and level enough. Spacing between sites is good. Staff is very nice and helpful. They also have a really nice dog park for us campers with doggies. Far enough from the highway for quiet and close enough to town for visiting. This is one of the nicest KOA's we have ever stayed. We will likely return again some day. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice open park right on the Colorado River. Close to I-70 for easy access to Glenwood Springs and environs although the park is 19 miles from downtown. The back-in riverfront patio sites are very nice and right on the river. Everything in the park was spotlessly clean. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The town of Glenwood Springs is 19 interstate miles away with a number of hot spring resorts, restaurants, brew pubs, shopping. Aspen CO is 60 miles away but worth the drive just for the setting.

This KOA seems relatively new and has nice large pull through sites. RVs are not stacked next to one another with barely room to walk. Nice green space as well and they have the best K9 Kamp I've seen. Showers are clean and good size. The staff was great! I recommend this location when visiting western Colorado.

We camped here for 6 nights. Friendly owner and staff. We stayed in a Premium pull-thru. Sites are level with gravel and full side concrete patio with table and chairs. Verizon has strong signal. We used it for WiFi but think the park WiFi was good also. Did not use any of the other facilities at park. Only negative for the park is that since it is close to I-70 there is a lot of road noise if sitting outside. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.
