Breakfast was awesome. Camp was awesome once they straightened out my resv. So relieved Dom answered after hours to correct my resv and let us in our cabin after hours, even if he was grumpy.

This was our first time camping at a KOA and we were pleasantly surprised at how friendly the people were and how nice the facilities were.

Nice grounds with great views. Breakfast at the cook shack was quick and tasty. The new bath house is a nice upgrade from the traditional KOA restroom/showers.

You found us that last cabin at the latest hour! All the creature comforts well attended to and provided for. It was clean and tidy, your cook shack was great and a bargain! The setting, of course, magnifique!! People,staff, delightful.

Restrooms very clean. Driveway to office rough. Roads around campground very dusty and somewhat rough. Internet did not work and no cell service for AT&T. Owners were courteous and helpful. Many KOAs that I have stayed in have a communal fire area. This one did not. Fires were close to RVs. Great views. Nice breakfast. All hosts were helpful. Very busy time of the year.

We have a communal fire ring at our cook shack, and have a fire during our Saturday ice cream social. Roads were damaged by thunderstorms and we are in process of fixing. Internet is limited in mountains, with a full park it's worse.

A beautiful, spacious campground in a scenic setting. We loved the Arkansas River. Helpful employees and active owner.

Loved cabin 10 for its privacy and views. Great campground discipline. Quiet and clean. Friendly staff. I shall return.

This is our second summer staying at BV KOA. Great experience each time. Clean bathrooms, great staff, beautiful mountain views. Love the Cook Shack and ice cream social. Close to all activities in Buena Vista and Salida. We will come back again.

This little gem is tucked in between the town of Salida to the South and Twin Lakes/Tuquiose Lake to the North with wonderful views of a couple 14ers. The grounds are nicely treed with enough space between camp sites and cabins to make it personal, yet still offer the opportunity to meet your neighbors. The facilities are nice- well stocked and cared for. We've already recommended it to.
Jul 30, 2015
Best Koa ever. Hope to return.beautiful setting, nice facilities and friendly, accommodating staff.

Made reservations in April and asked to be put by our other group and was not. Front desk lady was a little rude. Not many ammentities.Probably wouldn't stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your group had three one room kabins, two of which were next to each other and the third had a tent site between them.

Such wonderful service! Thank you for all you did to make our stay a roaring success. :)

Took our dog with us. When we walked him, he picked up a lot of stickers from the weeds or bushes that lines all the roadways/walkways. It was a mess to get all the stickers out of him. Also, when we checked in, the lady gave us a site too far from the bathrooms so I asked to be closer and she acted a bit put out about changing sites.
Jul 28, 2015
Friendly staff. Very clean. Great unbeatable view!!!!
Jul 28, 2015
Hosts were welcoming and friendly. Kamp was well organized, clean, and well maintained. We'll definitely return!

Friendly atmosphere. Site were too close together limiting privacy but we had a good time.
Jul 28, 2015
Best KOA I've been to in years! From the pick up of trash at your site, watering down of roads to keep dust down, immaculately clean bathrooms, delivery of firewood to your site . . . I could go on & on! Great stay! Friendly staff! First Class!
Jul 27, 2015
Great place. We have been going there for years! Need to upgrade wireless.
Jul 27, 2015
Our site was likely the best tent site for the campground. Everything was clean, well kept as well as convenient. Bathrooms were always clean and the staff was not only helpful but friendly.
Jul 27, 2015
Love it!
Jul 27, 2015
Clean campground with beautiful views. It has a nice new shower house. We stayed in Kabin 2, the only thing I did not like was the small rock wall that lined the drive to the cabin. It made getting in and out of the drive awkward.
Jul 27, 2015
Good friendly staff and service. Campsites not the most level but still workable. Ice cream social-great! Huge generous helping of ice cream, lots of flavors! YUM!!! Thank you
Jul 27, 2015
The new owners are very nice. They have upgraded the Pet Play Area. It is larger, has a picnic table, a shade tree and a cute water feature as well. Good job!
Jul 27, 2015
Great campground in a terrific location with excellent staff.
Jul 27, 2015

Jul 27, 2015
We enjoyed our stay. Great wifi. Friendly staff.
Jul 27, 2015
Only downfall is no pool. Great atmosphere

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in the high desert with a limited water supply- the only pools in the area are indoors or at the local hot springs.
Jul 27, 2015
We are traveling with pets and the power in our loop kept going out. It was inconvenient, and the maintenance guy said he would call the owner, but he knew that the owner would say "tell them to conserve power". That was very unprofessional, and very frustrating to hear.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- power went out twice. We were full, it was hot in the afternoon, and every site was running AC. When you add in electric fridges and water heaters- our infrastructure couldn't keep up. When several campers switched their fridges and water heaters to gas we stayed online.
Jul 27, 2015
Little shade, plant some trees. Noisy, but I like camping next to streams.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were 100% full this weekend, it quieted down in the evening. We are trying to get more pinon pines to grow (it is the high desert) but we lost a lot of limbs in the spring snowstorms this year.
Jul 26, 2015
Loved it! We were only there 1 night but just loved it. Kids were sad there wasn't a pool but loved the playground, walking around bs climbing on some rocks. Bathrooms clean and everyone very friendly. The sites were so nice even loved the extra touch of having the site all raked before we arrived. Would definitely love to come back and stay again!

We stayed in a Camp cabin and had two great nights. The cabins were excellent. The view was fabulous and the facilities were very clean and well maintained. The complimentary coffee each morning was a real bonus. Thank you!
