“Not what I was expecting...”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

It's obvious from other reviews that "Joe and Cathy" definitely weren't around when we checked in. The old phrase about "first impressions" held true for us at this Camping Resort. After staying the previous week at KOA's and having warm welcomes at every one, walking in here to register....well, just flat out didn't have it. Without going into detail, it's pretty simple to say I felt more like an inconvenience than a guest while registering. When it came to the campsite, it was normal and what a person would expect at a RV resort. This is not a place I plan on returning too.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

Camp grounds cramped with very small fire pit...felt couldn't light as too close to other vehicles.Many long stayers...huge RV's. Felt 'ripped off' in many ways...went to play on small 'run down' mini golf...paid for two people then told that the office shuts in 20 minutes....why rent then tell....paid $2 for a small cu of mik as they didn't have milk availble in the store. Manager keen to offer services as no mobile reception. Went to purchase an activity but she used a middle company and the fee was $9 more expensive than if we had called the activity direct. Felt that this camp ground is just in it for the money. We had to pay extra on arrival than was quoted as there was an internet booking fee of $10. Never heard of that before. Travelling across US from San Fransisco to Miami....and this is by far the most expensive camp for what it offers....Don't bother!

We stayed three nights in a large group tent site G2 which had beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks. There was some road noise from Hwy 24 during the night. The owner kindly offered a cabin for our first night as it was raining when we arrived which we declined. We also got a small discount on a rafting trip at Wilderness Aware by mentioning the campsite and discounted tickets to Mt Princeton Hot Springs from the office. We had booked a 'Private' tent site. The group site had three tables, two charcoal grills and a firepit. The closest facilities for the group site were two port-a-potties which were OK and some private bathrooms attached to the main office which was a walk down the hill. Take quarters for the showers. The main washroom was further away next to a nice playground. Unfortunately a group of women arrived on the second night and made noise until midnight in the site next door to us. And then again on the third night until 1:20am. I suppose the lesson learned is that you need to complain to the noisemakers earlier rather than later if you want any sleep. Could have done with the old lady from Jason's review to come over and tell them to shut up.

I have stayed here twice now and I can't wait to come back again. Joe and Cathy are great! I love this place. My daughter and I stayed in a yurt which we enjoyed got a restful night sleep. I really like the area and whould recommend it to anyone who wants to take a small trip from Denver for a weekend.

I love it cool at night and warm by day - and this place was great - stayed Saturday through Tuesday in mid June 2012. The facility is well cared for, and with showers and espresso in the morning, a lovely gift shop with snacks and crafts, and wonderful and accomodating hosts - we will make this a regular place to visit - and for longer next year. If we wanted something that the site did not have, we were directed to other business owners in town, and enjoyed everything about the area.

There are two reviews for this property that make no sense at all. This is a well cared for place with pristine showers and cabins. We were going to tent camp, but at 8000 feet the nights, even in June, are too cold for us. We opted for a charming cabin with a fridge, microwave and toilet. Could not be better.

It is quiet and comfortable in every way, and Kathy the owner is very nice. I do not know where Jason B camped, but I can;t believe it was here.

Do not hesitate to visit Arrowhead. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We like Cabin 1, but any location seems good.
