My first trip with a travel trailer! Campground staff were friendly, very helpful. Restroom facility was neat and clean. Trailer site was level and we loved the view of the Collegiate Range across the valley. Highly recommended.

Poor access from highway. Bumpy dirt road going into campground. Sites hard to find at night. My first negative experience with KOA in probably 15 years as a member.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The road entering the campground is maintained by the county. When you made your reservation we told you you'd be coming in after the office is closed and well after dark.

We stayed at the Buena Vista KOA for our last trip of the season before winterizing our RV. The staff was helpful and courteous, the grounds were well maintained and the view was spectacular. Would highly recommend!

We enjoyed our stay and will return. We have one suggestion though, when couples book reservations if at possible have them in the same areas, and those with children please put them close together. We had kids all around us and felt a bit overwhelmed by the noise. We are older and go to bed a lot earlier then the little ones😄

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The kids weren't part of the same group- as part of the magic of camping they made friends when they were here! We do try to move folks if possible, please let us know next time.

Always a nice KOA to get away to for a few days! We like to stay in a camping cabin. Great ATV trails are close by and a nice trail to hike right from KOA. We'll continue to go to this KOA in Buena Vista!

We like the fact that this setting felt like camping and did not feel like a resort. We enjoyed the scenic vistas, animals, access to hiking and biking trails. Especially liked the dispersed campsites with pine trees...it is not just a parking lot!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

This KOA is in a great location. The people that run it care a lot about the campground and their guest and are always very accomodating. We've stayed here many times in our 40ft motor home.

We've been here a few times now. All good except when my husband was going to watch a football game Thursday nite and I was told by the girl that she was closing up at 7pm instead of the usual time. Isuppose that is a rare occerance? We don't have satellite and looked forward to using your tv. A little disappointed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

During the off season we do close the office at 7pm.

We just purchased a new camper and rediscovered KOA. B.V. has lots to do and the campground felt really safe and was easy for us to drive the new camper around in. Great showers and hiking trails.Need a dinner bell to ring for folks like us who didn't bring a cell phone. We had to wait for someone to come to the counter for check in. It said call and we couldn't. Nice campground and staff.
Sep 28, 2016
Cell service almost non-existent. WiFi too poor to be useable. Staff friendly. No escort to site like many KOA's. Facilities showing age, and need a bit more daily attention.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our internet connection was upgraded just after labor day. As we get late in the season and have less staff we escort only to those sites that need help parking. A 51 year old park will show it's age at the end of a busy season.

Dusty roads that could get muddy with a little rain; no refund with early departure (just a rain check); no tv service

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Cable tv never came to this side of the river. We clearly state that we do not do refunds for early departures, just rain checks.

A bit pricey, I thought, for a tent site, and a little far from the bathrooms. Otherwise, it was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are price competitive with the other commercial campgrounds in the area.
Sep 27, 2016
It's a great place to stay and then take day trips up into the mountains. Laundry and bathrooms are always clean. Good little area for our dog to run. This time we did have trouble with 2 dogs being in the area without their owner so we could not go in. And one other time what appeared to be a vicious dog was in there with his owner so we did not go in. But this is no fault of the owners.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let one of our staff know if there are bad dog owners, and we will take care of it!

We usually prefer govt. run campgrounds but every once in a while we choose a KOA for convenience. The BV KOA is great! Great staff, nice facilities, and a great view down the valley. We will be back someday!

I was a little taken back by the language used at the front desk, I thought I might be at a biker gathering.

Unusual layout for a KOA good spacing between sites. Unusally quiet for a KOA. Nice laundry! The whole place could use painting and fixing up and the dirt road coming in is a washboard. Has the potential to be a unique KOA but badly needs updating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Should've seen the place before we bought it!
