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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

The two girls at the front desk were great and very helpful...The water turned off at my campsite 3 times, once while showering (not so fun)..The day we were leaving we were in the process of hooking up the camper (literally hooking it up) and was reminded by one of the employees of 11 checkout (it was 11) and then we watched a class A pull in next to us?? Check in is at 3 right? You get my point.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Checkin is at 2, and we sadly have a lot of people who show up early. We try to accommodate them if we can. We do need to clean the sites between departure and arrival times. We are working on the water pressure issues, keeping it regulated when the park is full is not easy.

Everything was GREAT!! We stayed there 8 days and loved every minute thanks to Dom, Helen, their daughter and wonderful staff!! It was one of the best KOA's! If rafting, be sure to use River Runners. Ask for Andrea as your guide. Be sure to go into BV and go to Louie's for ice cream and also get a breakfast burrito from food truck at Adventure Hub! Thanks for all the great experiences! Chris

Was not very well kept. Tall weeds between the sights, not many trees at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert location, so trees grow very slowly. We trimmed back a lot of brush between sites over the winter, and weeds have replaced brush. It's tough to trim the weeds when sites are occupied- we don't want to damage peoples campers!
Jul 18, 2016
My favorite of all the KOA's we've camped at. Only suggestion would be lots 61 thru 66 are facing the wrong way, in the morning you have shade when you want sun, and the evening you have sun when you want shade, we had lot P64. Otherwise love this KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It would be very difficult to relocate all the utilities in the row to the opposite side.

Great view of Mt Princeton and the Collegiate Range. Quiet. Just right.

We stay here a lot, but this time the water pressure was terrible...that needs to be fixed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are trying to figure out why the pressure was bad that weekend, and are working on it! Thanks for staying!

The folks were kind and helpful and the location was beautiful. Would be happy to stay there again.

Too many weeds

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If it weren't for weeds there'd be nothing growing. We do work on cutting them.
Jul 15, 2016
My dog was attacked by a Pit Bull look alike while in the doggie potty area. I did not know that you allowed attack dogs at your KOA. Other than that it was a great campground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pet policy is very clear that we allow all breeds, but dogs that are aggressive will be required to leave immediately without refund. This is the first we heard of this- did you inform the office?

Clean, cool (in summer) bathrooms. Nice dog park. We didn't like the dusty roads and sites. We wish we had known how much nicer the views and sites were up the hill. What really bothered us though was putting someone right next to us when the two sites qwew very close together when there were many similar sites that never filled. It didn't seem necessary to us and left us with bad feelings.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- you were in a site that gets afternoon shade, as does the one next to it. The "sites that didn't fill" don't get as much shade, and we try to be accommodating to all our guests. We do have dust, but are in a high desert environment and can't change that.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location. Spots are way too close together though, there is no privacy and every night our neighbors to the right and left packed up loudly at 4 a.m.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working within the design of a 50+ year old campground.
Jul 12, 2016
we stayed two nights in a 27 foot travel trailer. Best feature of this campground is the view, and it is stupendous. Wifi worked well, washrooms and facility overall very clean. Staff are very friendly. Campstore is well stocked with essentials. Our favorite location for exploring the Arkansas River Valley.

Stay was ok except for the owner. After the BV fireworks display someone near us shot off a few illegal fireworks. As we were leaving the viewing area, the owner knocked on my car window and completely lost her mind. Dropped two f-bombs with my kids in the back seat telling me to not light off anymore (and it wasn't me!). I get her concern, but she could have handled it much better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the f-bombs, we had just gotten off the phone with our neighbor to the west whose livestock was getting disturbed by the nearby illegal fireworks.

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.
