I will never stay in this KOA again. Rudest host I have ever met. Three campers in the park and I was told by both host I could not park in the spot next to mine to grab my wallet from my rv to go pay at the office.

Very we'll run KOA. Beautiful location with views of the Rockies. The staff was very helpful & the facilities were in great shape. We would stay again on our next trip.

Too dusty for me. Do not enjoy staying and driving in dirt.

staff was really friendly, bathroom had adequate stalls and showers. Beautiful location and I know that dust is expected in this area, but it was pretty dusty. Staff did their best to keep things neat. We also had kittens on our doorstep the night we stayed, mewing until we sprayed them with a water bottle (they came back), and then turned our light out. Thanks

Was great, quiet and comfortable.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Conveniently located right off the highway and only minutes to the town of Buena Vista which had a variety of restaurants and good food. The views from our cabin porch were amazing! Loved this place.

Front desk has not been very friendly the past two stays. The how can I help you like you are intruding on their day. They just are not very friendly. I have been going to this KOA for the past 10 years and have seen the KOA go further and further down hill. I miss the owners that used to run the place. Are they absentie landlords now? The camp sites have gotten so small and everyone in same ca

The owners are extremely nice and the cook shack awesome. The showers are spotless and even the Portable Potty is super clean. The view is spectacular.

We loved the food the cook shack makes and you cannot beat the ice cream social?

The new owner, Dominic wasn't even open until posted hours which he said it wasn't busy anyway which I think is a cardinal sin in business. The cabin was not clean and no toilet papter two nights in ladies bathrooms. Very disappointed indeed!This is how we spent our 26th wedding anniversary and I want my money back!


Camper neglected to mention her concerns while she was onsite- tough to resolve an issue you don't know about. And I offered to remain open later if they wanted any of the facilities in the office building or rec room, and was declined.

This was the friendliest and cleanest KOA we've ever stayed at. The view of the mountains was gorgeous. Our 2-room Kabin was very clean and in good shape. It truly felt like home for that week. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were always ready and willing to help with any questions or concerns that we had. We had a great vacation! Thanks a bunch Buena Vista, CO, KOA!

We brought our entire Girl Scout troop to this lovely campground and had the most amazing stay. The hosts attended to our every need with a smile and were as helpful as can be, including lending us a sleeping bag when we were one short. Breakfasts were great as was the ice cream social. Will definitely return and highly reccommened.

Loved the hummingbirds. It was really nice to have a filled up hummingbird feeder on our cabin. Beautiful location. Great KOA.

The new owners were great and the Koa camp was the best we stayed this year

Everyone there was amazing. We had a unexpected family death on trip and everyone there went above and beyond to accommodate us. Thank you.

We stayed in Cabin 10 with a great view of the valley and mountains. It was clean and private. The folks were helpful and very friendly. Will be going back!
Aug 04, 2014
Friendly, nice people, great view. We've stayed many times, and we'll be back!

Enjoyed the scenery - not enough bathrooms for the size of the camp ground and number of people staying. Did not appreciate the way the kids were treated and yelled at. Should have talked to the parents/adults instead of yelling at a 4 year old.

The rules are ridiculous. The owners made threats on our group. They were mad we went to bed at 10:15 and awoke at 6am-it's like having parents scold you! The camp sites are too close together. You can't even have a light on after 10pm & they sold us bunk wood! The wood we bought was wet and wouldn't light. They did the same thing to a few other cabins. We had to go buy wood elsewhere. Ridiculous.


Your group was drunk and loud on Friday, and started drinking around 3pm Saturday and was finally warned to knock it off or be evicted at 11pm Saturday.

The views are amazing and the kabins are nice but I cannot recommend this place due to the extremely rude head caretakers(owners?). They patrol this place like a prison and are quick to yell at you and threaten your group with calling the cops. I have stayed at five other koa campsites and have enjoyed my stay but won't be returning here.

Words can not express how horrible the conditions and management of this establishment are. The restrooms are filthy with no toilet paper, and the showers would not be healthy for a cockroach. Our traveling companions were called to return from a day trip to move their camper to accomodate another camper, who indicated they did not want the spot being vacated. Completely horrible - stay away.

Our stay at BV KOA was amazing! The staff was very friendly, willing to help and answered all our questions. The restrooms were very clean all the time!! Loves the gift shoppe and store. We look forward to our next vaca at BV KOA!!

The Kabin (#1) was extremely clean, although it didn't have a swing. We noticed that others had one hanging in the front. The view was the best! Add a swing and it may just be the best Kabin in America!!

New owners did not know how to read our reservations after 30 min they found the mistake. we had a 2 night stay but the next day had asked us to leave because we were on the list. I had to go in the office again furious and they had to research it all over again. thank god I kept my receipt to prove I paid because they still couldn't validate my reservations again and couldn't remember the day b4.

I have stayed at this campground many times in the past and loved it but not so much this time. The grounds are clean and up graded but the staff was extremely rude.
Jul 21, 2014
Had a wonderful time here. This is our first time camping with our little ones and we love it. Very family friendly and great location to all the family friendly places (hot springs, town of BV). The owners are new as of July 2014. The campsite is very clean and well kept. Bathrooms are kept clean at all times. The area is dusty but that is the environment (semi-arid) this KOA is in.
Jul 21, 2014
The people were very friendly and helpful. It's a lovely KOA and I would go back.
