Campground Reviews

Jun 21, 2015
campground was clean, workers were friendly, amenities were great, views were absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much we're already planning another trip back before the fall

We were yelled at for using hammocks for which no one told us we could not use when we entered the camp, nor was it included in the list of rules we were given. This particular staff member (which claimed to be the owners wife) was very rude about it. Other than that, our stay was better than expected.

This is a basic, no frills, over-priced campground. Nicely spaced, semi-level, gravel/dirt sites. Token landscaping. All roads are dirt. No amenities. Didn't use restrooms/showers/laundry.

I thought it was very will kept and the owner and employees were very helpful and courteous. The cost of KOA campgrounds is getting rather high and I am thinking about looking into other campgrounds. Next week we will be paying approx. $68 per night which is ridiculous! This is at Steamboat Sprgs, CO. The one at Rock Sprgs, Wyo. is terrible being all rock and the dust storms they get!

My husband received a stern reprimand/lecture for taking our trash to the dumpster instead of leaving it at our site. I think that was completely unwarranted and soured our experience at this particular KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have added trash pick up service at our sites as we had to lock our dumpsters to keep non guests from dumping trash in them. Sorry but we don't want trash left next to the dumpsters.

The staff was SO kind! They were eager to help in any way they could. And they offered a free cup of milk at breakfast. I loved coming here as a kid and I'm happy to bring my kids here!

Beautiful views.

The ONLY thing that is missing from this KOA that we've experienced at other KOAs was a pool. Owners & staff are wonderful! The family really enjoyed the Ice Cream Social.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

None of the campgrounds in the area have pools as we are at 8000 feet and the heating cost would be huge. We also are on a well with limited water, so pool refilling isn't something we can do. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Wonderful, cheerful staff. Great views and nice extras.

It was very nice, beautiful views, but as a full-time rv'er, and on a fixed income, it was WAY too expensive! $155 for 3 nights is a bit steep for someone who stays at a campground constantly while traveling. Other KOA'S we stayed at were only $30 a night for full hook-ups.

Most sceanic campground I have stayed in with BLM next door it's a nice place.

Traffic noise will keep me from staying at any KOA except in dire circumstances. Because this kampground is almost a mile from the highway, we gave it a chance. Not happy with our choice. Mountain roads make a lot of noise: truck engines whine whether climbing or descending. Plus the view of that hideous little town below the kampground really trashes the view of Mt. Princeton.

Buena Vista KOA Made our Top KOA list . We have stayed at several and have enjoyed most but this by far has been the Best yet.

Helen and the guys were great!!! This was my 4th time staying at this KOA. I will be back in Sept and Oct. I love KOA. Helen shared that she was a new owner. I had noticed there were a few changes and it was more friendly in the office. Helen is a doll. I look forward to going back.

The campsite has a lovely view of the mountains and is well maintained. It has a great store for needed RV and other supplies, as well as a laundry room and game room with a pool table and large screen TV. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful.

For the price.... It was not worth it.... They did not offer me the discount for my medical condition that all State Parks honor....

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- we aren't a state park and have no knowledge of your medical condition. We do offer KOA Value Kard discounts and discounts to active duty military.

This is one of our most favorite places to camp!
Jun 04, 2015
The new owners are awsome. They have been working hard to bring the koa back to its former glory. Love it!
Jun 04, 2015
Facilities were top notch and staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.

the camp ground is nicely situated near BLM hiking trails. Could use some paved spots in parking areas. My 23 foot Airstream was sandwiched between to large motor homes and given the tight parking spaces was somewhat claustrophobic. I have stayed at this site many times but will opt for other than full service sites on future visits due to tight space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have worked to cut back the brush around sites to open them up, we'll focus on the one you stayed in. Can't control the size of RV's who come in. We will be keeping our gravel roads and parking areas to keep the park rustic.

You have the BEST views of the collegiate peaks from the KOA!! Friendly staff, the kabin was adorable and exactly what we needed. We will be back again!!
Jun 02, 2015
Clean & many of the employees nice. Served free coffee & breakfast for a fee which was nice. However, we had baseball tickets for Denver that we needed to print out & even though they had a printer & we offered to pay the owner said no. In Denver the campground did it for free.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry but we will not connect a USB stick from an unknown location into our office computers, just too many viruses out there.

Beautiful location and friendly staff here.

The stay was nice - fabulous view! Did not enjoy the fire ants on our spot - they bit anything with exposed skin.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will work on the ants. This is the high desert and we can't kill them all...

Toilets were unusable the majority of our stay there. Lovely view. Staff was okay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry regarding the toilets. The women's room backed up at 8:45pm Friday, and we appeared to have it working by 1am. By 8am it was clogged again and we had it back by 11am.

Helen treated us like family! Some of us in the group were veteran campers and for some the first time. All of us felt very comfortable and totally enjoyed the amazing views. the bathroom facilities were the best I have seen for a campground! I plan to bring the family here next time!
