Helen is such a sweetheart. She works her butt off from morning to night. The campground is clean and well maintained. Our kids loved the clubhouse room and park. Front desk was super nice. Washer/dryers and microwave available was very handy. Always love to come up here. Keep up the great work! ;)

This is a very nice and well maintained campground. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest ever. This is my second trip there and I will go back.

The informational sheet printed up that is given to all people who stay at the KOA showed a Wifi network name that did not exist. The network that DID exist would not work for me. I called the front desk and the young woman working there did not offer any help for this problem! Amazing. However, staff were helpful when I had issues with connecting my electric service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an issue with our wifi hardware and changed the network name. koacamperwifi became koacamper. We also suggested you try connecting outside your camper, as the metal walls interfere with the signal, but you declined.

The washing machines didn't work and the staff wasn't willing to give us a refund. Our space was not level at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have new washing machines installed this spring and they work fine. If you open them once they are running they will turn off, and we have signs over the machines warning about that.

When I called to check on availability and then called back the same day to make a reservation, the owner/woman I spoke to was awesome! She was very friendly and very helpful and funny. And to top it all off, the views from every direction were fantastic and the Wi-Fi was working.

IT WAS VERY NICE - Close to area activities, beautiful place to stay, lots of activities at the site as well. Sites not too close together, which is nice. Loved the breakfast and interaction with the other campers.

Great customer service. Camp breakfast was amazing! Pros: close to Buena Vista and Salida. Large camp sites. Very tent friendly. Decent game room. Cons: Very little shade, sandy non level sites, NO POOL, outdated restrooms/ low water pressure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. We are in a high desert environment- trees grow very slowly. There are no outdoor pools in the area (except at the hot springs) due to evaporation and heating. Restroom upgrades are in our future plans, but need to save up more money.

Young lady that checked us in...did not know how to print me a receipt, did not give us cabin key, had to go back to get it, did not tell us cabin # and her directions were, "HERE" and given a map...I am guessing she is new? We have stayed at KOA's many times and know that this is not normally how they treat customers. Everything else was really good.. Plan to be back in future.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about that, yes she is new. There is a little bit of a learning curve.

After a hard day of driving, found this KOA by accident. What an amazing place. The view from our campsite was spectacular! Very close to the Arkansas River and the fun towns of Salida and Buena Vista. Loved it so much we stayed an extra day (would have stayed another, but our site had been previously booked.)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you found us!

Great place, need a little work on bath rooms

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Upgrading the bathrooms is in our long term plan- it's not cheap!
Aug 28, 2017
Helen et.al. are the bomb!!! The best KOA ever. The Fri. thru Sun breakfast in the Cook Shack is fantastic. Clean, friendly and very efficient. The store is well stocked and bath/showers clean. Loved this place and will be back.

The hosts are all terrific here and the setting is beautiful. Our only negative feedback is the sites are a little too close for comfort (and privacy). But hey, we enjoy meeting new people. Thanks, had a good stay!

The location is very nice that's the team that work there it's look like they need any favors it's actually talk to you did not feel comfortable with them at all I won't come back there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Really confused by your comment- are you saying the staff wasn't friendly or approachable?

The KOA staff was terrific as they have been for several years. (over thirty) The first time we stayed at this KOA my thirty six year old son was two. I have two pictures of him and myself on my facebook page taken in 1983 (age two) and 2016 ( age 35) with Mount Princeton in the back ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoy coming back- look forward to your future visits!

Kamping cabins are nice to stay in @ KOA. Restrooms are kept very clean. Nice hiking trail that starts right from the campground. Also great ATV trails really close by. The views are spectacular from BV KOA, can see the Collegiate Peaks!

Nice campground in a good location with good views. The only negative is that the campsites are pretty close together without many trees to help separate.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees grow very slowly in the high desert...

Great camp layout in the small hills.

The night we check we were told there is only one bath house, in the one working bath house out of 3 shows 1 was missing a show head and there was no rush to fix it. We decided to leave 2 days early and there is no refund, why is every KOA different? We stayed at the Yankton KOA and one night the had bad weather and we got a Hotel (full Credit) and KOA Colorado Spring charge $10 fee for cancel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The night you checked in our second bath house had a broken electric service, which was repaired the next day. No one told us about the broken shower head until the next day, when it was replaced within 10 minutes. We offered you a rain check for another stay, but you stormed out.

Tenters want to set up in the grass which we were rather rudely told we could not. Had to pound pegs into very hard ground it what was barely enough room to park. Deep pea gravel is dangerous for motorcycles. One day a Harley rider with $ 10,000 paint job is gonna fall over. Then your problems will be magnified 100 times over. Just sayin'.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Grass doesn't grow well in a high desert environment, and we don't have much here. We do have wooden blocks at the office to put under your kickstands for parking. If you drop your bike it's on you- just sayin'.

We returned to BV KOA and will again. It is super clean, convenient and what an awesome view. Thank you to the friendly staff for all their help. Ho0e to see you soon.

the facility was nice and well taken care of but the tent campsites are TOO CLOSE to eachother. It was very hard to sleep when your neighbor sounds like they are right next to you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were full the weekend you stayed.

We stayed 2 times this summer as we loved it the first time and came back.
