Bad weekend to be there - too many Jeeps all reving their big engines while I was trying to enjoy a quiet weekend camp! Happy to see new shower house!

horrible dirt roads and sites, nothing here to deserve 50 bucks a night (with KOA card discount!) Owners need to spend some money on gravel and cement pads.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will never put cement pads on our sites- if you want to stay in paved parking, stay at Walmart. We are working on fixing the roads- had major thunderstorms that damaged them last week. Tough to do major construction at the busiest time of the season.

Some camp sites better than others.. need to ask for flat area or shady areas.. showers a little crowded, but didn't check out the puppet level of new showers... overall not to bad pretty view of 14teeners ( Mt`s)..

Great people, awesome place

Restrooms very clean. Driveway to office rough. Roads around campground very dusty and somewhat rough. Internet did not work and no cell service for AT&T. Owners were courteous and helpful. Many KOAs that I have stayed in have a communal fire area. This one did not. Fires were close to RVs. Great views. Nice breakfast. All hosts were helpful. Very busy time of the year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a communal fire ring at our cook shack, and have a fire during our Saturday ice cream social. Roads were damaged by thunderstorms and we are in process of fixing. Internet is limited in mountains, with a full park it's worse.

A beautiful, spacious campground in a scenic setting. We loved the Arkansas River. Helpful employees and active owner.

This is our second summer staying at BV KOA. Great experience each time. Clean bathrooms, great staff, beautiful mountain views. Love the Cook Shack and ice cream social. Close to all activities in Buena Vista and Salida. We will come back again.

Took our dog with us. When we walked him, he picked up a lot of stickers from the weeds or bushes that lines all the roadways/walkways. It was a mess to get all the stickers out of him. Also, when we checked in, the lady gave us a site too far from the bathrooms so I asked to be closer and she acted a bit put out about changing sites.
Jul 28, 2015
Hosts were welcoming and friendly. Kamp was well organized, clean, and well maintained. We'll definitely return!

Best KOA I've been to in years! From the pick up of trash at your site, watering down of roads to keep dust down, immaculately clean bathrooms, delivery of firewood to your site . . . I could go on & on! Great stay! Friendly staff! First Class!
Jul 27, 2015
Good friendly staff and service. Campsites not the most level but still workable. Ice cream social-great! Huge generous helping of ice cream, lots of flavors! YUM!!! Thank you

The new owners are very nice. They have upgraded the Pet Play Area. It is larger, has a picnic table, a shade tree and a cute water feature as well. Good job!
Jul 27, 2015
Great campground in a terrific location with excellent staff.

We enjoyed our stay. Great wifi. Friendly staff.

We are traveling with pets and the power in our loop kept going out. It was inconvenient, and the maintenance guy said he would call the owner, but he knew that the owner would say "tell them to conserve power". That was very unprofessional, and very frustrating to hear.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- power went out twice. We were full, it was hot in the afternoon, and every site was running AC. When you add in electric fridges and water heaters- our infrastructure couldn't keep up. When several campers switched their fridges and water heaters to gas we stayed online.
Jul 26, 2015
Loved it! We were only there 1 night but just loved it. Kids were sad there wasn't a pool but loved the playground, walking around bs climbing on some rocks. Bathrooms clean and everyone very friendly. The sites were so nice even loved the extra touch of having the site all raked before we arrived. Would definitely love to come back and stay again!
Jul 26, 2015
Our stay was enjoyable & the staff friendly! However, as with most of the KOA campgrounds we stay at, the access to internet is very disappointing.For us,KOA is a place to get caught up on laundry and communications as we travel. There should be no problem obtaining a reliable internet connection that actually works! Suggestion:Add more service for fast internet connections.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

BV KOA has one of the better internet connections in the area- on the weekends when the campground is crowded and everyone is online, there isn't a lot we can do.
Jul 25, 2015
Beautiful location!
Jul 25, 2015
Clean facilities and we managed'
Jul 25, 2015
Nice campground with good spots. We appreciated the breakfast service. Extremely good views into the valley
Jul 23, 2015
love this campground. will come back. view is amazing.
Jul 23, 2015
Overgrown weeds. Septic wouldn't drain. Very unlevel sights. Owners are very friendly. Not impressed with upkeep of park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The septic on your site had a p-trap on it- it drains, but the water in the trap remains. It has been a wet summer and weed growth has been tough to keep up with.

We love staying here and do every summer! Staff is so friendly and fun!! The property is taken care of, showers and bathroom are so clean and my son loves the playground! GREAT place for a family trip.
Jul 21, 2015
We had a great time at this campground. The dog run was a huge plus for us. The facilities were clean and the staff was great. We plan to return next year.
Jul 20, 2015
Loved this campground! The staff was great! What a pretty setting, and the sites are large. Bathrooms were excellent!!
Jul 20, 2015
Decided to take a last minute weekend camping trip and chose this KOA. My site was reasonably level, bath houses were clean, and the campground was a reasonable distance from activities and hiking near Buena Vista. I feel like the pictures of this campground posted on the website aren't that great; this campground is way better in person.
Jul 19, 2015
Very pleasant stay and grounds were very well maintained.
Jul 19, 2015
sewer tries to run uphill,wi-fi did not work

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site you were in does have a P-trap in the sewer line, which works well. The wif-fi was slow over the weekend as we were 100% full and there were lots of people on it, but it did work. Next time please stop by the office for help getting logged in.
Jul 18, 2015
Pricey but very well kept.
Jul 18, 2015
So relaxing! The new owner and staff went out of their way to make our group (including children) feel welcome. I enjoyed listening to fellow campers play their musical instruments and sing around their campfire. Cook shack prepared delicious breakfast, as always. Best KOA experience ever!

Great hosts/staff, live the escort to our site, free (sorely needed) showers and game room!
Jul 16, 2015
Very comfortable and well organized campsite. Stunning views of the mountains. Clean washrooms and catered for all needs. A pleasant two nights stay
Jul 16, 2015
when we checked in we were told we had to take the site we were assigned although we saw at least 10 sites open. The site we were assigned there was only one place you cold put your chairs and that was in the driveway. Not goodfor a 4 day stay.Don't leave early because u will be refused a refund.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The "other 10 sites that were open" all had guests arriving that day, and we were unable to move you as we didn't have another site that was available for 4 days.
