Amazing views. Fantastic staff. Very competitive with other camp sites in the area as far as price. Loved the Park Model Kabin it was worth every penny. Look forward to our stay next month.

Stay was ok except for the owner. After the BV fireworks display someone near us shot off a few illegal fireworks. As we were leaving the viewing area, the owner knocked on my car window and completely lost her mind. Dropped two f-bombs with my kids in the back seat telling me to not light off anymore (and it wasn't me!). I get her concern, but she could have handled it much better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the f-bombs, we had just gotten off the phone with our neighbor to the west whose livestock was getting disturbed by the nearby illegal fireworks.

A great little camp, breakfast was good, facilities clean but could be super hot with no shade. The teepee was fun to stay in.

What a nice spot!! We enjoyed staying in cabin 6 as it was close to bathrooms/showers. Our kids especially loved the playground and the berg bikes. We look forward to staying again next year!!

We loved this KOA, from the spectacular views, location to town, cleanliness, staff and activities - first class! We loved it so much that we made future reservations during our stay!

This is a very nicely maintained KOA in a beautiful setting. We have stayed here quite a few times for recreation in the area (hiking, cycling) and will be back again.

I am torn by this KOA. These are the nicest owners I have ever camped with. They are warm and welcoming and go above and beyond to make you happy. The views of the surrounding mountains and the Arkansas River valley are spectacular. The breakfast was delicious, and came out very quickly. That said, some of the camp sites are very tight, not very level, and are rocky and Sandy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We work with what we have on site to try and level the sites. Some sites are larger than others.

This KOA is the DIRTIEST I've ever seen. Dirt everywhere. May be a good idea to pave it gravel the roads. By the time your done showering, you get dirty walking back to your trailer, cabin or tent. If you try to drive to shower, the only parking is on the opposite side of the main building so you have to walk to the other side to use the facilities. Completely inconvenient.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is the high desert, and we have a limited water supply so whatever grass grows is all we get. We have been graveling the roads as budget permits, but we will not pave. Perhaps a motel would be more to your liking than a campground.

The staff were not welcoming nor were they friendly. Our children were made to feel unwelcome and were yelled at for rather minor infractions. They had an ice cream social advertised all day on Sunday and then when we showed up at the time, the staff said it was held the night before. They didn't apologize just brushed us off. The facilities were clean but I would never bring a family here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our ice cream social is always on Saturday night, which is on our maps and signs. The only time we've reprimanded kids in the game room has been when they were hitting each other with pool sticks.
Jul 02, 2016
Unfortunately, we did not have a pleasant experience at this KOA. It was very different from the other KOAs that we have stayed at in the past in that children were not welcomed at all. We met up with relatives, and there was a total of 7 children in our group. They did not feel comfortable playing in the game room, or on the playground because they had been rudely reprimanded in both places.

Very friendly staff. Amazing mountain views. Would have appreciated more reasonable prices on breakfast.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our breakfast prices are comparable with local places. We minimally increased prices this year.
Jul 01, 2016
We enjoyed our time at the Buena Vista KOA. They have a variety of sites, rocks and it feels more like a state park or forest campground--but with hookups.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Friendly service. Clean bathrooms. Wish breakfast had started at 7:00 instead of 8:00

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the schedule- we open later because we were getting very few customers between 7 and 8am.

Things that need improvement:- no cable tv on the full hook ups, the pitches and roads need to be tamaced, the staff while helpful were inexperienced when we asked about local hiking trails. We were also unaware the proximity of the local prison when we booked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Cable tv isn't available at the campground. We will not pave the the property, if you wish paved spots we aren't the place for you. New staff this summer isn't as familiar with the area, working on it. Local prison is over 1.5 miles away.

I enjoyed my time there. It was clean and the people were friendly. The only problem I had was we made reservations ahead of time under the same last name , and my cabin was the furthest out or away from the rest of the family. I had to drive to spend time with my family on the same camp ground. Other than that it was a great place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the separation, the rest of your group were in a group tent site which we have no cabins close to. You were in a cabin with one of the best views, so we hope you enjoyed it!

bathroom had no tolet paper, showers cold, It would be nice if they could keep the laundy room open all night Bike rentals over priced and the breakfast is over priced. People were nice and helpful but does not make up for the lack of facilities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have double tp dispensers to avoid running out, if we do run out please let us know. Our water heater is on demand, and we haven't had a cold shower complaint yet. Our laundry is open during office hours as we have no change machine. Breakfast price is lower than local restaurants.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Buena Vista KOA. We love it there! The owners are around all the time and are so fun to talk to! Very clean, love the I e cream social, they cook breakfast for you if you want to buy it. Lots of games in the recent room. We will be back because we love the area also!

Awesome stay.. so convenient to all activities; hiking, rafting, biking. Great interaction with all staff. One of the owners showed us a map of all the trails. Her advice was very helpful and made our hike a great experience!

My wife and I recently spent an over night at the BV KOA. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. My wife is half way through her pregnancy and became sick the second day of our trip. The staff helped her out while I packed up the car to make the trip home. We will be back when we have our little one and would highly recommend this KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hope your wife is feeling better, good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

We had a great out-of-the-way site, which we like. The site was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly, changing our reservation from a more central site to the more secluded one. The amenities we used (bathhouses) were very clean and nice. There is a wonderful hiking trail right at the campground that goes onto BLM land.

Loved the new Bath House - it was awesome! So glad they recycle, that's high on our list! Helen was like a Mom to us...very friendly, gave us great pointers of where to eat and visit and just took care of us! The campsite was beautiful - we had a camp fire every night, played horseshoes & shopped in their gift shop (the fudge was yummy)! Thank you for making our stay an awesome family memory!

Thank you very much!!! Hope to see you again!

showers were clean, but only one light bulb of six were working. Light bulb in cabin did not have a shade protecting the bulb, unsafe
