Campground Reviews

Jun 29, 2013
Very disappointing stay. Wifi never worked. Computers down. Said they would deliver receipt to campsite and never did. Campsite was marginal at best. Staff was rude. Will not stay here again.

The campground host gave us a tent site that she knew was more exposed to very high winds than other sites. We left for 5 minutes and came back to broken tent poles (we had been camping in high wind areas the previous 10 nights, these weren't flimsy poles). Her solution to the problem was to charge an extra 40 dollars for a cabin. The site was overcrowded and dirty, by far the worst KOA i've seen.

Nice people, nice breakfast pancakes, nice rest rooms & individuals showers, nice mini store. Nice location for MCycle Shamrock tours thru the many Mountain Passes. Wish the lead ins to the Pull thru's had hard packed oiled gravel like the main road.

Great people working there. The only thing I wish they had was more indoor bathrooms closer to camping spots. Not talking about port potty. (Bathroom and showers). Very nice though

The camp fee was high for a tent. It is higher then for campsites at state parks.

It was great! It was a wonderful view! The only problem we had was that the cabin got very hot during the day and took awhile to cool down, but luckily the fan eventually got us comfortable. The view and location was great, and we will def be back.

With the exception of the check in woman, my stay was excellent!! She has zero personality for dealing with the public. Her husband was very nice and helpful. He should be behind the counter, not her.

internet service was terrible, no cable, unfriendly service. Two years ago service was great but not this time.

Lovely rustic western park with lots to do. Quiet, dark with a clear Rocky Mountain view of the night sky.

My expectations were blown away by how friendly the staff was and how nice the place was. Great job!

Everyone was so friendly!!! It was quiet and clean! Thank you!!

This is a nice, quiet facility which allows one to be close to the recreational activities in the area. The adjacent horeseback riding stables is one of the best of its kind.

For tenting, we couldn't get the stakes in the ground....no shade...dirty bathrooms....was expecting more in Buena Vista

We like the western rustic feel and the mountain beauty of this KOA.

We loved the cabin in Buena Vista, Colorado. The staff was very friendly, and we had a great fathers Day weekend. We will be back this summer.

We were well taken care of and had everything we needed in the campground. Porta potty over by our cabin was clean so that was nice to have nearby. Staff was extremely friendly.

We stay here several times each summer, it is one of our favorite places to camp.

Their streets appear to be paved with motor oil that sticks to your shoes and tracked into our coach. Also I paid in advance but when I signed in we had to pay an additional $7.37. I don't like to be ripped off this way - and won't again.

Beautiful views. Very friendly and helpful. Loved available pizza and cook shack breakfast was delicious. Lots of hummingbirds made it relaxing. Liked game room. Hills a bit challenging.

A beautiful place to stay. Convenient location for rafting on the Arkansas River. The cabins were comfortable,clean and cozy.

Very friendly and attentive staff (owners are very involved in the daily operations which is nice). Enjoyed the ice cream social and the Cook Shack pancake breakfast. Nice hiking and mountain biking adjacent to property. Would have been a five star if the roads/pull thru spaces were paved.

One member of the staff (female desk clerk)at checkin was rude. Everyone else we encountered was excellent.
Jun 11, 2013
Staff is fantastic. Facilities are kept very clean.

This KOA is located in unique terrain that slopes up from the valley floor. You can see the entire Collegiate range from almost each camp site. The RV pull throughs were plenty long and although the support items a bit worn, everything worked well. I would recommend some of the maintenance areas be better shielded from public view just to give the place a more clean look. Nice time so we'll return

rustic but nice overall. staff is fastidious with cleaning and check-in/out, which can be inconvenient for guests, but the results are not in dispute. the location and available activities are a big plus.
Jun 10, 2013
great time, convenient to hot springs and fishing; mastiffs loved the ice cream social!

You have the nicest people working there! They brought the wood for my campfire right to my cabin. I'll be back again this summer.

Great place to stay, friendly staff, nice amenities. The corral with the horses and ponies were fun as well as the wagon ride with the Belgian horses.

Very friendly and kind staff! Great facility! The showers and bathrooms very spacious and clean but homey in feel. Laundry and rec facilities were great. We could even order pizza for dinner! They had a nice playground and the space for our RV was nice and quiet. I would definitely come here again and will recommend it to all who pass through.

Nice views, but surly customer service. They immediately were rude to me when I first walked in to register. They yelled again when the kids were walking on the raked dirt. They gave us the worst site. They were so rude to my friends when they came by to say hi. They were rude to my son and husband at breakfast. It's a nice location but we won't be back. We'll try another more friendly plac

I believe that the Western rustic theme of this campground fit well with the siting of the place. Horses, trail rides, horse drawn cart rides and the cookhouse all created an enjoyable stay.

Though the camp-site was beautiful, there was a miscommunication between the front office in the evening and the morning. At the end of our stay, at 11:07, we were told we had to leave & threatened with the law. They never gave us a chance to think about staying another nite. With such treatment to people of color, why return? We were told, "As soon as you leave, we can "be friends."
