Steamboat Springs KOA Holiday unveiled 27 paved RV spots, ten deluxe cabins, and 14 improved tent sites on Tuesday, May 31.
According to the report, Bob Junker, general manager of Steamboat Springs KOA Holiday, proudly said they had a great Memorial Day weekend.
“I had so much fun just driving around in the cart and talking to the guests and asking what they thought of our addition. We had such great feedback.”
In April 2021, KOA Holiday broke ground on the project that nearly doubled the size of the Steamboat Springs campground. Junker said that KOA improved the bridge and paved roads to make it more accessible. They also converted an area previously limited to tent camping into a more usable area.
Today, the area features paved spots for 27 RVs, ten deluxe cabins, and 14 improved tent sites. The tent sites are equipped with water and electricity, and the RV sites are provided with 50-amp electrical hookups, sewer, and water hookups.
The new area also has motion-activated LED lighting designed to brighten each area while limiting the amount of light pollution. Junker stated that the campsites would also have televisions provided by Dish Network hookups in the coming weeks.
The cabins line the outside of the new area, with some that offer views of open spaces, Mount Werner, and the Yampa River. Inside the cabins, guests will find everything they need, such as pots and pans, linens, and a full kitchen. There are large decks and patios outside the cabins, and guests will find a gas grill and a fire pit for cooking or roasting marshmallows.
“The only thing you have to bring when you stay at one of those cabins is your food and your clothes,” Junker said. “Everything else is there.”
Getting the campground revamped is a challenge for Junker, who has been general manager for the past two years. Junker acknowledged that there were some challenges caused by the pandemic and sometimes Mother Nature, but overall, the experience has been positive.
“The target was last year,” Junker said. “With all the supply chain issues, and then we had some bad weather, we got everything done we could do last year, and then got this stuff done as quickly as possible this year.”
Junker is excited about the new space after hosting 105 recreational vehicles and offering a place for 350 adults and 220 children to stay on the first busy weekend of the summer.
“If you come here at four o’clock in the afternoon, or five o’clock on the weekend, we’ve got kids running all over, we got the rental bikes, and they’re out on the bikes and the four-wheeled carts that we bought — It’s a blast,” Junker said. “I think if things continue, and we get our final tweaks done, it’s just going to get better and better from here on out.”
