This is a very nicely maintained KOA in a beautiful setting. We have stayed here quite a few times for recreation in the area (hiking, cycling) and will be back again.

This KOA is fantastic! The owners Dom and Helen are so helpful and friendly, plus their team is always courteous. We'll return there again as soon as we can!

I am torn by this KOA. These are the nicest owners I have ever camped with. They are warm and welcoming and go above and beyond to make you happy. The views of the surrounding mountains and the Arkansas River valley are spectacular. The breakfast was delicious, and came out very quickly. That said, some of the camp sites are very tight, not very level, and are rocky and Sandy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We work with what we have on site to try and level the sites. Some sites are larger than others.

Unfortunately, we did not have a pleasant experience at this KOA. It was very different from the other KOAs that we have stayed at in the past in that children were not welcomed at all. We met up with relatives, and there was a total of 7 children in our group. They did not feel comfortable playing in the game room, or on the playground because they had been rudely reprimanded in both places.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The only time we've reprimanded kids in the game room has been when they were hitting each other with pool sticks.

We enjoyed our time at the Buena Vista KOA. They have a variety of sites, rocks and it feels more like a state park or forest campground--but with hookups.

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Friendly service. Clean bathrooms. Wish breakfast had started at 7:00 instead of 8:00

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the schedule- we open later because we were getting very few customers between 7 and 8am.

Things that need improvement:- no cable tv on the full hook ups, the pitches and roads need to be tamaced, the staff while helpful were inexperienced when we asked about local hiking trails. We were also unaware the proximity of the local prison when we booked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Cable tv isn't available at the campground. We will not pave the the property, if you wish paved spots we aren't the place for you. New staff this summer isn't as familiar with the area, working on it. Local prison is over 1.5 miles away.

bathroom had no tolet paper, showers cold, It would be nice if they could keep the laundy room open all night Bike rentals over priced and the breakfast is over priced. People were nice and helpful but does not make up for the lack of facilities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have double tp dispensers to avoid running out, if we do run out please let us know. Our water heater is on demand, and we haven't had a cold shower complaint yet. Our laundry is open during office hours as we have no change machine. Breakfast price is lower than local restaurants.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Buena Vista KOA. We love it there! The owners are around all the time and are so fun to talk to! Very clean, love the I e cream social, they cook breakfast for you if you want to buy it. Lots of games in the recent room. We will be back because we love the area also!

We had a great out-of-the-way site, which we like. The site was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly, changing our reservation from a more central site to the more secluded one. The amenities we used (bathhouses) were very clean and nice. There is a wonderful hiking trail right at the campground that goes onto BLM land.

Loved the new Bath House - it was awesome! So glad they recycle, that's high on our list! Helen was like a Mom to us...very friendly, gave us great pointers of where to eat and visit and just took care of us! The campsite was beautiful - we had a camp fire every night, played horseshoes & shopped in their gift shop (the fudge was yummy)! Thank you for making our stay an awesome family memory!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you very much!!! Hope to see you again!

rude, abusive, hostile young woman working in office/store ruined our trip. unwilling to give refund when 2 of our 3 parties left. never stay at a KOA again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Per our policy we offered rain checks for the unused nights of your stay, and to the others in your party, which you declined.
Jun 24, 2016
Overall was very good. But in the store , some of the frozen treats did not have prices on price list. In bathrooms, good job. Liked the privacy factor you gave in our trailer site (B10?) Thanks to clerk for listening to our site request.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We try to accommodate guest requests when we can.
Jun 24, 2016
Unfriendly manager, check-in. sites not level. Nice location, great views. Overpriced.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site had been recently dug up for repair on an electric line, and we will regrade it. We are priced competitively with the other campgrounds in the area.
Jun 23, 2016
Owner was very good with customers,worked HARD,AS WELL AS HIS OTHER workers. However his daughter worked the office and was hostile! She accused me of stealing in the gift shop! Denied us shelter in the rec room during storm after 9 pm, opened a door on us forcefully and hit us.No refund for heat/storms driving 2 of our tent campers out. More!I will never go to a KOA again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We offered rain checks for unused days, which were declined. Storms ended before 9pm, and you were in a camper. I spoke with the other employee *and* another guest who were there during the interaction, and they both reported a different version of the story than you. Thanks for not returning.

We reserved a 50 amp spot and was put into it. When we were almost set up we relized that we only had 30 amp service. We were moved and had to set up again after having drinker along way. They should know where there electric service. I went to buy a jacket in the store and the tall white haired tall women was rude. The latern was about to fall out on the side walk so I when back to tell her. rude

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry there was a problem with your reservation. We have a limited number of 50amp sites.

Beautiful views from sites! All okay except dusty road walking up and down to bathroom and laundry.

We are in a high desert environment, and we do use dust control material on the roads.

Site was sloped excessively, requiring several attempts and all blocking material. Could not attach sewer hose. Moved closer next morning to drain but unable to fully empty tank due to slope. Not worth the time and money.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had lowered the sewer connection on this site this spring, but are unable to go lower due to cast iron pipe under ground.

We enjoyed our stay. Friendly KOA staff, clean bathrooms/showers, not great wifi. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the wifi- we have fairly limited bandwidth in the area, and when the campground is full the performance goes down. Glad tyhe rest of your stay was enjoyable!

I camp a lot by myself and would feel very safe camping here. Thank You

You're welcome!

People were very friendly and facilities were clean. Sites were open and easy to get to. The only drawback would be the sand and dirt..... Not much you can do about that though

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment, and we have no interest in paving the campground. We have been putting gravel in sites and roads as finances permit.
