Great place, a bit short on hot water but dealt with it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our water heater had broken early in the morning, we got it running around 9am.

Staff was good. Limited trees, dirt everywhere. Out of the way = good and bad.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

1/2 mile off the highway = less noise. We are in a high desert environment with a limited water supply, very little grass grows here, and campers tend to trample what does.

I thought the prices were high for this campground. Staff was nice and accommodating. With the prices charged I don't think I would stay there again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our prices are similar to the other campgrounds in Buena Vista.

Breathtaking views!!! Brand-new washers and dryers. Host family is very friendly and inviting! Downside very dusty and it is compounded by vehicles driving too fast in and out of the campground No cable TV with three PBS stations Poor Wi-Fi So if you're looking to totally disconnect and soak in nature this is your campground !

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- we haven't had any rain in a while which is aggravating the dust. We try to control the speeders. Cable TV never made it to this side of the river, we are looking into adding repeaters to help the wifi.

This year the campground and restrooms were quite a bit cleaner than when we were there last year. This trip was a test to see if the cleanliness had improved. It has and we will be back again this summer. Thank you and see you soon!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have good staff this season, working hard to keep things clean.
Jun 27, 2017
Very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Clean restrooms and beautifully maintained grounds! Will be back for another stay.

Be glad to see you can again!

It's hard to believe that it would cost $50 to stay at a place like this! Dusty, unlevel sites. Poorly designed. Women's bathroom had piles of hair on the floor of the shower at 9 am. Management was largely unconcerned when we spoke with them. Their remarks about how their rates were competetive with other campground in the area, make me wonder if that person has visited them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is difficult to clean the bathrooms in the morning when guests are using them, and more so the women's room when you only have male staff members on at the time- and you didn't mention, you just complained about the price. Thank you for not returning.

The staff was very helpful, friendly, great customer service. Thank you.

Average, they were able to change our accommodations at the last minute due to the access to the tent cabin not being safe with large motorcycles.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've had a number of folks on motorcycles- with trailers- get into the tent cabin without issue. Glad we were able to accommodate you.
Jun 26, 2017
Nice campground with new bathrooms and shower house. Would definitely stay here again.

Location was good, but we never could get the wifi to work, which was frustrating since we had counted on using it for business.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On busy Saturday nights our wifi performance suffers.
Jun 26, 2017
Great location and amenities. We showed up late Friday night and it was easy to find our location and get settled in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad your stay was great!

The campground is beautiful but because it is an a valley, it is very smokey.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had smoke blow in from a forest fire in Utah- and it cleared out the next day.

This KOA site was in a great location and close to Buena Vista. The major down side for campers is the numerous amount of ants. It made sleeping and hanging out uncomfortable. For that reason I would not recommend this for campers. Otherwise it was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment and put down a lot of ant poison. You didn't mention the issue while you were here, we would've tried to spray the active ant hills.
Jun 26, 2017
Staff was friendly, our site was very dusty need some kind of either different base or a dust inhibitor.

We stayed in site B-28, one of our favs at this campground because of the outstanding view. Overall great campground, it's a little dusty due to all the sand but the views are simply stunning. Staff are super friendly and the grounds are very clean. Campfire pits are appreciated, washrooms maintained perfectly. This campground is a great location for Arkansas Valley adventures!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were very nice although I didn't really have a chance to use too many of them. The restroom/shower area was very clean. I was camping with a tent and the place I was given to set up didn't really have a tent pad area and where it was level, there wasn't much shade. However, I know I am being very critical just because it was hot and dusty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wish we could control the weather. Most folks set up their tent in the gulch just below the site.
Jun 25, 2017
Dirt and very small sites

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On a busy Friday our site selection is limited.
Jun 24, 2017
We stay at this KOA regularly. We enjoyed our recent stay as much as always. In particular, we are pleased by the friendly young people that the owners have hired this summer

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks!
Jun 24, 2017
rating down due to the washboard road leading into the campground, staff was very helpful, beautiful views.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The washboard road is the county road, not the campgrounds.
Jun 24, 2017
The only negative comment would be on price, $37 for a tent site is a little high. The location is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. The facilities are clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The other campgrounds in the area have showers that require guests to feed quarters- we do not. We do work hard to keep the campground nice, thanks for noticing!
Jun 23, 2017
Dusty and noisy with bikes and trucks in campground. Sites very close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert location, dust is an issue.

The owner was very nice. The recreation room was nice. The site was nice. The laundromat was reasonably priced. The views were outstanding! There is very little grass and a lot of sand. The water didn't taste good. They said they had to treat it. It must be from a well. We will be staying again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, we are on a well.
Jun 22, 2017
They were very helpful in upgrading us to a better location. It was quiet and enjoyed the views of the valley.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Had the "honeymoon campsite"-- it overlooked the whole KOA and provided amazing views. Was a little hike from the restroom, but worth it for the privacy. No pool which was a bummer because it 90 degrees plus. But, Buena Vista, one of my fave Colorado towns was close and the ice cream cooled us off. Restrooms were a bit dated- but were clean-- which is essential for a good review from me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! There are no places with outdoor pools in the area- except the hot springs.
Jun 22, 2017
We moved to a back in site. It was nice, but is only 20 amp. The staff didn't seem to understand or know that it wasn't 30 amp. It worked out because I had adapter and didn't need to run the AC.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working our way through the sites to upgrade to 30 amp minimum on all water and electric sites.
Jun 22, 2017
Nice views, restrooms and showers could be better

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bathroom renovations are in our future plans, pending budget.

Great staff who are friendly and extremely hospitable. The Buena Vista KOA has amazing views and outstanding amenities. I will be returning to this KOA over and over again.

The campsite was very good and the breakfast shack was awesome! Helen and Dom were so nice to us and our kids. Great location to BV. A couple of the showers could have better pressure, not sure what the issue was , but they were very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are trying to figure the shower issue out as well.
Jun 21, 2017
Friendly, well maintained and clean campground. Sleeping in a tent, it would be nice if tent sites were available further away from traffic noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our tent sites are mostly on the perimeter of the campground. On busy weekends the ones furthest from the roads are used first.

It was a great camp but the wifi was terrible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Busy weekend, lots of people on the wifi, performance gets bad.
Jun 20, 2017
Wifi was pretty much non-existent

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On a busy weekend, wifi is tough to provide.
