This little gem is tucked in between the town of Salida to the South and Twin Lakes/Tuquiose Lake to the North with wonderful views of a couple 14ers. The grounds are nicely treed with enough space between camp sites and cabins to make it personal, yet still offer the opportunity to meet your neighbors. The facilities are nice- well stocked and cared for. We've already recommended it to.

Made reservations in April and asked to be put by our other group and was not. Front desk lady was a little rude. Not many ammentities.Probably wouldn't stay again.


Your group had three one room kabins, two of which were next to each other and the third had a tent site between them.

Clean campground with beautiful views. It has a nice new shower house. We stayed in Kabin 2, the only thing I did not like was the small rock wall that lined the drive to the cabin. It made getting in and out of the drive awkward.

We stayed in a Camp cabin and had two great nights. The cabins were excellent. The view was fabulous and the facilities were very clean and well maintained. The complimentary coffee each morning was a real bonus. Thank you!

we were surrounded by a lot of tents and felt a little cramped but really enjoyed our stay.


Glad you enjoyed your stay- it was a very busy weekend here.

This campground has neat cabins overlooking the Buena Vista valley and Mt. Princeton. Wonderful friendly staff and perfect location! Thanks for the awesome experience! We'll definitely be back.

Loved Don, Helen, Pam, Larry, Linda....wish I knew everyone's name. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful.

Excellent location and maintenance - Extremely clean and well cared for. One Question: Why do people who pay for a cabin (more expensive) have to drive to town for water, while people with an RV site don't?


We can't sell water as we are on a well with limited allocation. We do have water spigots through the campground that guests can use to fill water bottles and such- RVer's shouldn't be filling their storage tanks on the property.

The location of this KOA was perfect because we were going to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs for my husbands birthday. I wish this KOA had more activities though, like horseback riding, mini golf or an outdoor movie theater like they have at some other ones. Overall it was good.


We have been unable to keep a wrangler on site due to not enough demand for horse rides- the last three quit. We are looking at adding additional recreation options.

Overall a wonderful stop over, clean and well kept. Enjoyed all the humming bird feeds on the cabins. Nice cover over the picnic table at cabin #3.

Nice place to stay, out away from the hi-way so muffled traffic noise, not right next to it like some other KOA's You can see the mountains 360 degrees, very scenic Huge rocks around also. Breakfast available. Clean campground , Very clean shower house/restrooms. Not on flat ground on a hillside nice terrain, Thanks.

What a beautiful view. This park is really well set up for privacy with sites being spread out nicely. The staff were wonderful. The kids park is different and fun. We would definetly go back.
Jul 13, 2015
could not have stayed at a more welcoming place! it felt like we stayed with family from the way the staff treated us and even with the way the other campers treated us. We will visit again for sure!

Always enjoy being there. Thank you for keeping such a clean camp ground for us. We love the cabins.

Great place to stay where you can be in the outdoors, but have all the comforts of home available when you need them. I would have given them a 10, but I was a little disapponted that they don't have meals at the campground on all days.

It was a great stay and i would do it again The only problem was where the sewage dump station was located

Excellent and very helpful staff. Being mid way between Buena Vista and River Runners rafting it was very handy. The 'Jade Garden' is great for Chinese takeaway's :}/ I would suggest you make kitchen facilities and BBQ area available.

We enjoyed our stay except for the rain shower on Friday night. The breakfast and ice cream were great. The cabins could use a ceiling fan.
Jun 26, 2015
The staff was warm and welcoming and the facility was top notch!

We really liked this campground. The hosts and staff were very friendly and helpful. The views were gorgeous. We had #9 cabin which required a rather walk to the BRs but it was an ideal spot for our choc lab. We were sorry our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We do look forward to coming back in the future. Joy & Dave Roslien

Helen and the guys were great!!! This was my 4th time staying at this KOA. I will be back in Sept and Oct. I love KOA. Helen shared that she was a new owner. I had noticed there were a few changes and it was more friendly in the office. Helen is a doll. I look forward to going back.

You have the BEST views of the collegiate peaks from the KOA!! Friendly staff, the kabin was adorable and exactly what we needed. We will be back again!!

Toilets were unusable the majority of our stay there. Lovely view. Staff was okay.


Very sorry regarding the toilets. The women's room backed up at 8:45pm Friday, and we appeared to have it working by 1am. By 8am it was clogged again and we had it back by 11am.

Helen treated us like family! Some of us in the group were veteran campers and for some the first time. All of us felt very comfortable and totally enjoyed the amazing views. the bathroom facilities were the best I have seen for a campground! I plan to bring the family here next time!
May 26, 2015
we ended up at this KOA later in the evening and are still very grateful for the staff checking us into a cabin. my wife and i hadn't expected the cold weather and being on bikes needed a warm spot for the evening. once again our thanks goes out to the owners and staff for helping us out

We enjoyed our stay so much, we booked for the 4th of July weekend! We will definitely check out the events and meals you have planned prior to our next stay so we can take advantage of them. You and your staff do a wonderful job of making everyone feel very welcome.
