Friendly atmosphere. Site were too close together limiting privacy but we had a good time.

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!

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.

Love it!

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Our stay was enjoyable & the staff friendly! However, as with most of the KOA campgrounds we stay at, the access to internet is very disappointing.For us,KOA is a place to get caught up on laundry and communications as we travel. There should be no problem obtaining a reliable internet connection that actually works! Suggestion:Add more service for fast internet connections.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

BV KOA has one of the better internet connections in the area- on the weekends when the campground is crowded and everyone is online, there isn't a lot we can do.
Jul 26, 2015
we were surrounded by a lot of tents and felt a little cramped but really enjoyed our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay- it was a very busy weekend here.

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.
Jul 25, 2015
Loved Don, Helen, Pam, Larry, Linda....wish I knew everyone's name. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful.
Jul 25, 2015
Beautiful location!
Jul 25, 2015
Clean facilities and we managed'
Jul 25, 2015
Nice campground with good spots. We appreciated the breakfast service. Extremely good views into the valley
Jul 25, 2015
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.
Jul 24, 2015
This is a really nice KOA.
Jul 24, 2015
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

Beautiful tent site, yummy breakfast and warm, friendly and helpful staff. Before we left, I reserved a site for a future stay!

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.
Jul 23, 2015
Room was ver clean . Staff was very busy and grounds were kept very well . Office / gift store had a good selection and souvenirs available !
Jul 23, 2015
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Site was clean and well-maintained. Thank you!
Jul 23, 2015
love this campground. will come back. view is amazing.
Jul 23, 2015
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.
Jul 22, 2015
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.
Jul 21, 2015
As a single girl i appreciate staying at KOAs. they are safe and the amenities are nice.
Jul 21, 2015
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.
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!!
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.
Jul 20, 2015
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!
Jul 20, 2015
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.
