Very glad you enjoyed your stay!

The female owner of this establishment is by far the most unproffesional person I have ever met. She drove her car straight at me at 40 mph, stopping at the last moment then screamed at me for minutes when all she needed to do was calmly tell me like a mature grownup that dogs need to be on leashes. She gives every KOA a bad name and should be criminally charged for threatening me with her vehicle


We allow two dogs maximum in a cabin, and it is clearly stated that dogs must be on leash at all times. It was very nice of you to put the mattresses on the floor for your *three* dogs to sleep on, and your footprints were also visible on them as well. Please never return to our campground!

We stayed in Kabin 7 on our recent trip to colorado. It was clean and very close to the restroom/showers. The staff we're extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. Gorgeous views and a great playground that our daughter loved! Will definitely be back!!

The cabins and restrooms were very clean. Visiting in off-season (early October), the site was quiet and lovely. Explored the campgrounds and will probably camp instead of use the cabins, but no matter what the trip was great for a one night stay!

We enjoyed the cleanliness of the facilities and convenient location near Buena Vista and Mt Princeton Hot Springs.

This is a beautiful location just a few miles out of town. Quiet and clean. Great star watching!

The staff was very nice and concerned for our needs. They knew who we were and accommodated for a possible late arrival.

Highly recommend! The cabins were clean and cozy. The owner Helen was a delight and made our stay wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I was very disappointed in our stay. We only saw our hosts when we arrived and other than that- they were no where to be seen especially in the evening...both nights in a row other campers were loud, drunk and obnoxious. Curfew isnt enforced and spending two nights not sleeping untill 2:00 am....we couldnt wait to leave early Sunday morning. I am at fault, becaue I expected too much from KOA.


Sorry you were disturbed. If you had called the office number (which rings at our house) we would have dealt with the unruly guests, or stopped by the office during the day- we were there from 9am to close- but if no one lets us know another guest is being loud there isn't much we can do.

The campground has a beautiful view of the collegiate peaks and is only an hour or two from many of the mountain areas there -- St. Elmo, Tincup, and the Beaver Creek Wilderness area. The staff was vey friendly and helpful.

Amazing views, and a great staff! Campsites are so very nicely kept up.

This was our second time staying here and it was as great as the first! If you choose to stay in a cabin, try to request cabin 1- the location is great and the sunset from the hill is worth being a little farther from the bathhouse. Speaking of the bathhouse- that place is always clean and smells great. We love it here and will be back!

If you are camping, I would recommend this. We stayed in the camp cabins and the beds were thin mattresses and non of us slept. We tried to cancel our reservations for a night two nights later and could not. Had to pay full price. We opted for a motel and just loose our money.


The cabin has 5" foam matresses, which are standard for the cabins. We follow KOA's national cancellation policy to the letter.

Great views. Friendly staff. Bathrooms/ showers were always clean. They have most things you need if for camping if you forgot them at home, if not it is about a 5min drive into town. We stayed in a cabin and it was clean and comfortable (2 adults w 4kids aged 2-9) very pleasant stay. Kids playground is a bit dated but they still enjoyed it.

We stayed in a cabin which had a beautiful view, was spotlessly clean, and very quiet.

KOA in Buena Vista has beautiful views, very nice campground. The kamping kabin we stayed in was clean and had exactly what we needed which was bed,table, electricity and fan. KOA bathrooms were very clean,glad to see since none of the cabins had their own bathrooms. It was awesome we could hike right from KOA on a real nice trail! And ATV trails were not far away, very short drive to get ATVing.

We had a great time on the Buena Vista KOA. The owner was very friendly and made sure we had a good experience.

My 2nd time staying here. Quiet, friendly, and remote enough that noise was not a problem. Only issue I have is with being so close to the restroom, other campers were to afraid or lazy to just walk to the restroom, they had to drive down even in middle of night. Loved being close to the restrooms.
Sep 14, 2015
Great stay!
Sep 12, 2015
Staff was courteous and helpful. Views were fantastic! Probably the best KOA we have stayed at so far.
Sep 11, 2015
The new owners have breathed a new fresh customer service wonderfulness into the campground!! Thank you for the wonderful breakfast too!!
Sep 09, 2015
Our stay was wonderful, brought our dogs too! Loved the views and enjoyed the owner and her hospitality! Everyone was welcoming and the campground was well taken care of. I would recommend a few thing be updated or cleaned but that comes with time. It's camping... I didn't ask to stay at a hotel resort. It was wonderful stay. Thank you Helen!

Helen is the nicest campground host I've ever met. She is so funny and she goes out of her way to make us feel welcomed!! Definitely a 5 star KOA time!!
Aug 30, 2015
One of the worst KOA's we have ever stayed at. In need of some major updates !!! Have already warned some other campers not to consider staying here.
