Grass and weeds needed trimming all over the grounds. Laundry area was very clean. Good variety of items in store.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on trimming, we've been full and finding time is tough.

We had a great time. Nice sites and the view is amazing. Dog walk is a nice amenity, complete with multiple options for disposing of your pet's waste. Too bad some campers can't pick up after their dogs, no matter how easy they make it for them. The Cook Shack was great and Stephen an awesome cook and camp neighbor. Thanks for a great experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay- and the pet owners who fail to pick up after their dogs drive us nuts too!!!

Need to be more strict with bathroom cleaning times. If it's 11-1 then make sure it's done.If you're going to repair a faucet and are turning the water off to the building maybe don't clean the other building at same time.It's not at all convenient to your guests.The campground is nice otherwise, some sites are quite a distance from the bathrooms. Our site said near bathroom definitely not at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the timing of the water repair- we try to fix things middle of the day when the campground is least busy- and it was 12:30.

The campground is in a beautiful setting. The hosts are personable and professional. The bathrooms and showers are clean as are the camp sites.

We paid, then went to the hotsprings, upon our return someone was setting up camp in our space. It made us feel somewhat uneasy. The campground was pretty noisy with residents and the highway below. The worst part was the HORRIBLE road coming in. About rattled us to death!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The county finally graded the entrance road.

Always a pleasure!!!!

Have loved this location for 7 or 8 summers in just the last 11 yrs! Perhaps 3 diff management teams over this period have all kept consistently high standards. I'm sure we will be back. Friendly staff too!

We'll be glad to have you back!

Mostly level sites, all gravel roads, but we managed in a 40' coach. Beautiful scenery. Reservations and changes were efficiently handled by very nice office staff. Wifi worked well during our visit. All you could ask for! Certainly will stay here again!

Did a load of laundry and the dryers didn't heat. Took forever not to mention the cost. Would go back and was a good location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if you are having problems with any of our facilities and we'll get it sorted out right away.

Everyone was very friendly - the grounds a facilities were clean and well kept. We stayed in the Teepee which was nice, but in my opinion waaaay over priced

Very friendly staff, restrooms were kept clean. We made the mistake and staying Friday night when people who have worked all week and ready to unwind. Not good when getting up at 3 am and driving 1400 miles home...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the last night- please call the managers number on your map if guests are disruptive after quiet hours and we will deal with the situation. Glad the rest of your stay was good!

Excellent place. Beautiful site, great owners, tasty cook shack. Access to every outdoor activity you can imagine within an hours drive.

Beautiful location. Clean, orderly, family friendly. Friendly, helpful staff. You won't go hungry, you will not be in need of something to do, or be required to do anything you do not wish. I've used the group campsites and most recently the teepee.

We have traveled for 30 years and this is the cleanest, scenic, and friendly Koa ever. Hosts and workers go beyond what is expected.

This KOA is extremely convenient because we have family in the area. The only thing we don't like about the area is the sand and the tracking of the sand into the trailer by the children and grandchildren. Maybe having some concrete pads for some of the sights. Tough/impossible to get rid of the sand. Overall, a very nice place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Pads are difficult to place in an older campground as we have buried utilities that are prone to break and are not well marked.
Aug 05, 2016
Amazing views and great accommodations for my family of 6.

Great location, nice setting, friendly staff. They encourage saving water, yet showerheads are gushers. Could easily be replaced with low flow heads. Some Kabins could use a major facelift. Not consistent with usual KOA standards. Wifi mostly useless. Still love this KOA though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look at the shower heads! Wifi (and internet service) in the area in our peak season has been a problem.

Wonderful setting overlooked by breath taking 14ers. Clean. Great breakfast. Friendly folks. The new bathroom-shower combinations are over the top nice. Good water pressure. Warm /hot water. Landscaping was well maintained...maybe remove more growth in playground. Rec room nice and well used! Great place!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- we'll look at the growth in the playground!

very clean bathrooms/showers at all times of the day. All camp spots have fantastic view of the mountains and valley

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!

Good location with some great views of the valley and mountains. Entry area seemed a bit cluttered (not a good first impression) but overall it was clean and well maintained. We had a basic cabin but it was too basic not having the amenities like other KOA cabins we stayed in on this trip. An A/C would have been nice for the summer heat.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our cabins are basic camping cabins, we get into the 80's in the day and drop into the 50's at night in July, so AC isn't normally needed.

Our family of four stayed in our pop up camper. We had a secluded spot that had a good view of the mountains. The facilities were basic and adequately clean. Fans in bathrooms were layered in dust. Road leading into facility was dirt and needed some maintenance. This is not a fancy KOA but meets your needs and is close to many activities and the town of Buena Vista which we enjoyed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We cleaned up the bathroom fans- dust is a big issue in the high desert. We try to grade the county road leading into the park (since the county rarely does it) but our tractor broke down.
Aug 02, 2016
Excellent Staff and location... If you need a camp with a shower near Buena Vista I highly recommend this KOA. we were tent camping and the facility suited us well, some of the RV spots looked a bit crowded but that's a Colorado camp in July, it's a busy place.

Thank you!

The Manager Helen is overwhelmed and tends to be defensive.

Kraig (spelling) was fantastic. The TeePee was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Spelling is correct- thank you!
Jul 31, 2016
you are on dirt. no trees. it was very loud and when you pay that amount of money you should have better amenities and roads. I would never stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for not coming back!

We enjoyed our stay but had to leave early for a family emergency back in Ohio but got no refund for the 2 nights we had prepaid. I don't like this policy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do offer rain checks for unused nights, and will be happy to send you one if you'd like. Please email us at buenavista@koa.com
