This campground has neat cabins overlooking the Buena Vista valley and Mt. Princeton. Wonderful friendly staff and perfect location! Thanks for the awesome experience! We'll definitely be back.

Nice campground with good spots. We appreciated the breakfast service. Extremely good views into the valley

Excellent location and maintenance - Extremely clean and well cared for. One Question: Why do people who pay for a cabin (more expensive) have to drive to town for water, while people with an RV site don't?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We can't sell water as we are on a well with limited allocation. We do have water spigots through the campground that guests can use to fill water bottles and such- RVer's shouldn't be filling their storage tanks on the property.

This is a really nice KOA.

Dom and Helen are awesome hosts and make you feel like family when you walk in the door. The grounds are immaculate and were honored with the KOA President's Award. Should I need campground arrangements again, I will call Dom and Helen. They are number one in my book! Kathy Ainsworth

Probably one of the most beautiful and well-run KOA's I know. Friendly and helpful staff, and many things to do on the grounds. I would recommend this KOA as a stop-over while moving on to other locations. Buena Vista has nothing going for it. If you are into rafting or cycling, then perhaps this is the place for you. Well kept camping areas.

Overgrown weeds. Septic wouldn't drain. Very unlevel sights. Owners are very friendly. Not impressed with upkeep of park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The septic on your site had a p-trap on it- it drains, but the water in the trap remains. It has been a wet summer and weed growth has been tough to keep up with.

We love staying here and do every summer! Staff is so friendly and fun!! The property is taken care of, showers and bathroom are so clean and my son loves the playground! GREAT place for a family trip.

We had a great time at this campground. The dog run was a huge plus for us. The facilities were clean and the staff was great. We plan to return next year.

I go to the hot springs there at least once a month and stayed at motes in town till I tried the koa in your town. Love the cabins and the camp grounds and will stay there every time there open.wish the cabins where open all year around.

The location of this KOA was perfect because we were going to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs for my husbands birthday. I wish this KOA had more activities though, like horseback riding, mini golf or an outdoor movie theater like they have at some other ones. Overall it was good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been unable to keep a wrangler on site due to not enough demand for horse rides- the last three quit. We are looking at adding additional recreation options.

This KOA hosted a family reunion over a week with about 20 people. A good time was had by all

Loved this campground! The staff was great! What a pretty setting, and the sites are large. Bathrooms were excellent!!
Jul 20, 2015
Decided to take a last minute weekend camping trip and chose this KOA. My site was reasonably level, bath houses were clean, and the campground was a reasonable distance from activities and hiking near Buena Vista. I feel like the pictures of this campground posted on the website aren't that great; this campground is way better in person.

Checking in was very easy. However, we purchased firewood which they said would be delivered and it never received it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry about the firewood- Friday night was extremely busy (over 40 checkin's) and it's possible your delivery got messed up- please let us know next time and we'll make it right!

This was our third stay at Buena Vista KOA. We love the campground and the cook shack (people running this couldn't of been nicer, and food very good). The problem we have with this campground is the ladies in the office. They are RUDE, UNHELPFUL, and UNCARING to their guests. The first time we thought they were just having a "bad day". But no! They continued to treat us and all guests disrespect

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you feel that way. If you could give me a call and let me know which staff was rude, I will speak to them. THEM.
Jul 19, 2015
Very pleasant stay and grounds were very well maintained.
Jul 19, 2015
Overall a wonderful stop over, clean and well kept. Enjoyed all the humming bird feeds on the cabins. Nice cover over the picnic table at cabin #3.
Jul 19, 2015
Excellent stay! We were greatly impressed with all that the Buena Vista KOA had to offer. Thank you!
Jul 19, 2015
Camp hosts were all great, when out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Thanks to all and enjoyed the breakfast! Best Koa stay in Colorado.

sewer tries to run uphill,wi-fi did not work

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site you were in does have a P-trap in the sewer line, which works well. The wif-fi was slow over the weekend as we were 100% full and there were lots of people on it, but it did work. Next time please stop by the office for help getting logged in.
Jul 18, 2015
Pricey but very well kept.
Jul 18, 2015
So relaxing! The new owner and staff went out of their way to make our group (including children) feel welcome. I enjoyed listening to fellow campers play their musical instruments and sing around their campfire. Cook shack prepared delicious breakfast, as always. Best KOA experience ever!

Very comfortable and well organized campsite. Stunning views of the mountains. Clean washrooms and catered for all needs. A pleasant two nights stay
Jul 16, 2015
when we checked in we were told we had to take the site we were assigned although we saw at least 10 sites open. The site we were assigned there was only one place you cold put your chairs and that was in the driveway. Not goodfor a 4 day stay.Don't leave early because u will be refused a refund.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The "other 10 sites that were open" all had guests arriving that day, and we were unable to move you as we didn't have another site that was available for 4 days.
