Great family environment. Friendly and helpful staff. Campground and bath house are clean. Location is great: fishing, rafting, hiking nearby.

No water, by the time it got back on, the lines were too long to shower, only 3 shower stalls. Also, no electricity for us because our trailer has a 25 ft power cord and the location of the outlets needed about 40 ft.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did have an issue with the water, but got it fixed about 10 minutes after we found out. Did you go over to our other bath facility when the lines were long? The site you were in shares an electric box (and water spigot) with the adjacent site, but it's in the middle of your 25 foot long site- should not have been an issue.

We always enjoy staying here. The mountain surroundings and the rustic feel to the park make it an enjoyable experience. The sites were VERY well groomed and the staff were very attentive.

Priced in line with the other full service campgrounds in the area.

Campground is clean and orderly. Wifi not as strong as I would have liked as it dropped out frequently but it is welcome! small observation, there was only one dish washing sink outside bathroom block. Overall we enjoyed our stay!

Great campground, tucked into the side of the mountain. The bathrooms were clean, nice, and well taken care of. The staff were all very friendly, kind, and helpful. Our site was great and we hope to stay there again.

We stayed here on our trip to Leadville. The staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants. My only negative was the long dirt driveway to the campground. Not well maintained and could be messy in the rain.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's the county road coming off the highway that leads to our property. The advantage is it put's us 1/2 mile off the road- so less noise!

Nice staff, great views from sites on upper loop. Pull through sites are long, but not wide. If we can camp there again we will ask for a back in site on the upper loop to have both the view and more space for lawn chairs and outdoor relaxing! Look forward to another trip there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's been a wetter than usual summer and the hill sites are a bit overgrown- we'll be trimming them back! Thanks for staying with us!

Reserved RV and tent site in July for family weekend in Sept, tent site rented to another person on day we arrived.Manager said he "couldn't make someone move if already set up." He offered "a tent site far away from our RV, put their tent on our RV site, a refund and go find another campground." Charged us 41.00 for them to stay on our site. Manager gruff, defensive, unapologetic, won't return

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for not returning- you were rude to the person who was on "your" site and we almost tossed you out for that behavior. We don't want your business.

All good. Great spot in rugged southwestern style. Men's facility (at least the one near the office) could use a rebuild/upgrade, but usable for now.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bathroom remodel is on our to-do list- it's not cheap!

Amazing views and the best price in town. Only 17 minutes to the Cottonwood Hot Springs.

Nothing fancy, but adequate sites. No trees to speak of. Beautiful views. Quiet. We didn't use any of the amenities like the store or shower. Staff was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees don't grow very well in our high desert environment.

almost 2x the price of other campgrounds for rvs. Too expensive, $60 a night is like $1800 a month for a spot in the dirt! Seems high I think they need more reasonable rates.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced competitively with the other full service campgrounds in Buena Vista.
Sep 05, 2017
Beautiful campground. It would be better if gravel were spread in the driveways. Sites are very unlevel, but that is to be expected because of the nature of the location of this campground. We've stayed here many times in the past.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on grading the sites- but during the busy summer we cant do a lot of grading without disturbing guests on site.
Sep 05, 2017
The campground is nice and enjoyable. You can tell some areas, especially the bathrooms are getting worn down after a long summer. The men's restroom faucet on the far right has a hole in the metal like I have never seen before. It looks like an acid cleaner ate away at the metal over time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's on our list of things to repair!

Had a local group event held here and it was amazing! Staff friendly and helpful for anything you need, camp was clean and well maintained!

This is a very nice and well maintained campground. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest ever. This is my second trip there and I will go back.

The informational sheet printed up that is given to all people who stay at the KOA showed a Wifi network name that did not exist. The network that DID exist would not work for me. I called the front desk and the young woman working there did not offer any help for this problem! Amazing. However, staff were helpful when I had issues with connecting my electric service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an issue with our wifi hardware and changed the network name. koacamperwifi became koacamper. We also suggested you try connecting outside your camper, as the metal walls interfere with the signal, but you declined.
