Campground Reviews

Jul 21, 2015
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!!

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.

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.

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.

Pricey but very well kept.

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!

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.

Nice place to stay, out away from the hi-way so muffled traffic noise, not right next to it like some other KOA's You can see the mountains 360 degrees, very scenic Huge rocks around also. Breakfast available. Clean campground , Very clean shower house/restrooms. Not on flat ground on a hillside nice terrain, Thanks.

Owners are great people who understand their guests.
Jul 08, 2015
Everyone is SOOOOO nice, the campground is clean and well kept...there are hard working employees always scurrying around to make sure you have everything you need. .the little extras like the ice cream social, craft night, huge breakfasts, free coffee and fire wood delivery and daily trash pickup make it a perfect experience ..we will definitely come back

Nice view but ground is not too great especially if raining since no area around camping spaces are paved or no lawn. We camp due to having dogs and not really great for walking the dogs. Our space was near tent camp area where group of young tent campers were there which made not enough shower space. We often stay at KIA camp ground but I can not day this is a good one.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a rustic campground, and do no intend to pave any part. We have a fenced in dog walk, and the southeast part of our property is open for dogs to run off leash. We also have a second bath house facility.
