Would have liked sewer hookup

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would have been happy to provide you one, but you booked your stay 5 days before arrival, and all our full hookup sites were already reserved.

Grass and weeds needed trimming all over the grounds. Laundry area was very clean. Good variety of items in store.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on trimming, we've been full and finding time is tough.

We had a great time. Nice sites and the view is amazing. Dog walk is a nice amenity, complete with multiple options for disposing of your pet's waste. Too bad some campers can't pick up after their dogs, no matter how easy they make it for them. The Cook Shack was great and Stephen an awesome cook and camp neighbor. Thanks for a great experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay- and the pet owners who fail to pick up after their dogs drive us nuts too!!!

Need to be more strict with bathroom cleaning times. If it's 11-1 then make sure it's done.If you're going to repair a faucet and are turning the water off to the building maybe don't clean the other building at same time.It's not at all convenient to your guests.The campground is nice otherwise, some sites are quite a distance from the bathrooms. Our site said near bathroom definitely not at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the timing of the water repair- we try to fix things middle of the day when the campground is least busy- and it was 12:30.

The campground is in a beautiful setting. The hosts are personable and professional. The bathrooms and showers are clean as are the camp sites.

We paid, then went to the hotsprings, upon our return someone was setting up camp in our space. It made us feel somewhat uneasy. The campground was pretty noisy with residents and the highway below. The worst part was the HORRIBLE road coming in. About rattled us to death!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The county finally graded the entrance road.

Mostly level sites, all gravel roads, but we managed in a 40' coach. Beautiful scenery. Reservations and changes were efficiently handled by very nice office staff. Wifi worked well during our visit. All you could ask for! Certainly will stay here again!

Did a load of laundry and the dryers didn't heat. Took forever not to mention the cost. Would go back and was a good location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if you are having problems with any of our facilities and we'll get it sorted out right away.

We have traveled for 30 years and this is the cleanest, scenic, and friendly Koa ever. Hosts and workers go beyond what is expected.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you very much!

This KOA is extremely convenient because we have family in the area. The only thing we don't like about the area is the sand and the tracking of the sand into the trailer by the children and grandchildren. Maybe having some concrete pads for some of the sights. Tough/impossible to get rid of the sand. Overall, a very nice place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Pads are difficult to place in an older campground as we have buried utilities that are prone to break and are not well marked.
Aug 04, 2016
Beautiful campground. Clean and well run. We have stayed here many times over the years and the owners do a great job.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!

Wonderful setting overlooked by breath taking 14ers. Clean. Great breakfast. Friendly folks. The new bathroom-shower combinations are over the top nice. Good water pressure. Warm /hot water. Landscaping was well maintained...maybe remove more growth in playground. Rec room nice and well used! Great place!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- we'll look at the growth in the playground!

very clean bathrooms/showers at all times of the day. All camp spots have fantastic view of the mountains and valley

Our family of four stayed in our pop up camper. We had a secluded spot that had a good view of the mountains. The facilities were basic and adequately clean. Fans in bathrooms were layered in dust. Road leading into facility was dirt and needed some maintenance. This is not a fancy KOA but meets your needs and is close to many activities and the town of Buena Vista which we enjoyed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We cleaned up the bathroom fans- dust is a big issue in the high desert. We try to grade the county road leading into the park (since the county rarely does it) but our tractor broke down.

The Manager Helen is overwhelmed and tends to be defensive.

It's July and we are extremely busy. Sorry.

you are on dirt. no trees. it was very loud and when you pay that amount of money you should have better amenities and roads. I would never stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for not coming back!

We enjoyed our stay but had to leave early for a family emergency back in Ohio but got no refund for the 2 nights we had prepaid. I don't like this policy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do offer rain checks for unused nights, and will be happy to send you one if you'd like. Please email us at buenavista@koa.com

Friendly, fun hosts. They hosted an ice cream social during which they talked to everyone and got us all talking to each other. Lovely rock formations for a back drop. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice park and staff except one older woman from Arizona (workcamper) in office and was quite snippy to people. Great hiking trails nearby. No pool but understand why. Grass very scruffy given that it's a desert.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying!
Jul 27, 2016
our site was very unlevel. Couldn't use step on RV very well because of a rise along the edge of the RV. No sewer in this site . Laundry room was very nice and machines worked well. Wifi doesn't work well like they claim. No Cable or TV stations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have that site on our schedule to regrade the rv pad, but it doesn't have much rise on the passenger side (where your door goes). Cable TV never got to our location. We were extremely full during your stay, which impacts the wifi bandwidth available. Sorry you weren't satisfied.

Enjoyed the campground and area.

Place is ok but the staff was extremely rude and the upcharges a little crazy. I probably won't be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A little confused about the "up charges"- you only paid for the site there were no additional charges made during your stay, and the rate was exactly what you were quoted during your online reservation.
Jul 24, 2016
We were only planning to stay 2 nights & extended to 5. Beautiful location and the owners keep the property maintained wonderfully. We were at the top of the grounds and it was a strenuous hike to & from the clean but dated bathroom. Also if I didn't hit it just right could only get lukewarm water. Not a deal breaker though & I would definitely stay here again. Great breakfast on site!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've set the water heater higher so we don't run short of hot water. It is July and busy!
Jul 24, 2016
Very relaxing. Cook Shack had good breakfast. Staff was great!. Very friendly!!

Please let us know if someone is making too much noise after hours and we will gladly take care of it.

Nice park but a little dusty..we could only get 30 amp but that worked just find. Host were very friendly and the office/store was well equipped ..plenty to do in and around town..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a high desert environment- dust comes with the territory! Thanks for staying!
Jul 21, 2016
One night stay needed with convenient pull thru. Site was ready, level, and close to bathrooms. Did not need anything special. Nice hiking trail and dog park for dogs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we were able to meet your needs!
Jul 20, 2016
Great staff! I didn't like the constant dust from cars coming in/out of the site but I know that is hard to control in a dry environment. Perhaps lightly watering the main roads 1-2x per day or planting more natural grasses would help.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not much grass successgully grows out here- we are trying to re use our water treatment waste brine for dust control- but it kills grass...

Not an experienced camper, I needed lots of help with just about everything in my RV. These patient and generous people were wonderful! Five sparkly stars!
