Other than needing to trim trees for larger rigs in the long sites, it was fine. Great location for everything in the valley. Fantastic staff. Definitely would stay there again.

We had trimmed the trees at the start of the season, and we'll get them trimmed up some more. Thanks!

It would be a 5 if we were tent camping. They have awesome tent spots with incredible views and lots of privacy from giant boulders. The restrooms were nice, the staff were very nice. We now have a 2016 45' motorhome, the driveway is a bit rough getting in and they don't have the new KOA upgraded sites yet. Perfect location for ATV's and our jeep, fantastic trails.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The road up to the big sign is county maintained, we are working on our interior roads as much as we can. We've had very little demand for the patio sites, and don't see the need to spend the money to create them.

We love coming to the Buena Vista KOA. The location is beautiful. So many KOA's look like parking lots, but this one does not. One thing to note.. The sign on the restrooms says they will be closed for cleaning from 11 to 1 each day. On Saturday, they restroom was still closed for cleaning at 2:30. Disappointing. Otherwise a great place to camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the late cleaning that day but we were understaffed, and got it finished as quick as we could.

Staff was very nice. Facilities were clean, water always hot so nice after a long day in the mountains. Wifi was terrible. Wanted to use it for work and it was down most of the time. Was disappointed that I could not get re-reimbursed after having checked out. I needed to leave 2 days early and I had to sit on my payment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our busiest time of the year, wifi is an issue. We have been full most nights, with so many people on the property using it at the same time. We do not do refunds for early check outs, rain checks only.

Morning desk attendant was not cheery and smiling and kind like the afternoon checkin lady. When asked about trash (since the dumpsters were locked) she responded to use the yellow barrels. And said this rudely, like we should know. But we didn't see this written in any of the info. We did like the extra parking they have for trailers The pull thrus are nice and long, but not very level.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had to lock our dumpsters to prevent non guests from coming in and filling them. At checkin we make sure to tell all guests that trash goes in the yellow barrels around the campground.

Like past stays at this KOA, this stay was excellent. The staff is very hard working and friendly. The grounds are well kept. The bathrooms were functional and clean. The ice cream social was great fun and all the fees go to charity.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay!

Got yelled at to move our 14' trailer when registering because there was NO parking and lot was full with two massive rigs. Did I mention I was sitting alone in the passenger seat with no keys to move the vehicle? Never could get Wifi. First site was terribly cramped, second site was lovely.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we were able to move you to a site you liked better. We do try to get people through the registration area as quick as we can, so they aren't blocking the roads.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In a rural area there is limited bandwidth available, and when we are busy it suffers.

Beautiful place and loved the area. Hookups were good. Other KOA's had access to the laundry by code anytime and this one locked up at 9:00 We are in a big rig pulling a trailer. I would like to see the sites with gravel. The fine sand on the site is hard to keep from tracking in the motor home. We would definitely stay at the Buena Vista KOA on our next trip through.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We recently had a flash flood that brought sand out of the hills, and are working on repairs.

We had a great stay at your campground. An unexpected storm came through & your staff was great taking care of everyone & getting the campground back in shape. Great views, clean facility & campground also friendly staff. The only recommendation I would give is to fix the low water pressure in the showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been working on the water pressure, and will continue- Thanks!

Really loved how the campground was tucked up in hills & among the rocks. Sites are scattered and for the most part aren't right on top of each other. Nice, clean showers and the people who run it/own if are so nice. During our stay, we had a flash flood rain & hail storm come thru. Made our stay memorable. The owners made repairs as quickly as possible. Would definitely stay here again!!!

Great location, very clean WiFi could be better, water pressure low at times. Nice staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well and it's tough to regulate the pressure at times.

Rugged older campground, beautiful site. Excellent biking/hiking trails right out of camp. Staff intelligent and good humored; relaxed, fun atmosphere. Stayed in w/e site 6 nights, they gave me the BEST spot against the rocks. Well run, facilities clean, store well stocked. Owners great; Dom quickly repaired roads after torrential storm washed them out. Large shade trees in some sites.

The staff is helpful. The views are gorgeous! Have stayed here several times. Not one site is very level. It is dirt road into KOA and all dirt roads and sites throughout the KOA. (When it rains they have to do a lot of grading to fill in gullies.) This could be an "9+" park with paved roads and sites. It would be expensive to do and a good investment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, we aren't going to pave the park. The road into the park is a county road, which will not be paved, and we prefer a property that doesn't look like walmart. The grounds and roads and sites are criss-crossed with water, sewer and electrical lines, all of which would need to be replaced and rerouted in order to pave. Not economically feasible.
Jul 18, 2017
Campground flooded. That was OK until Dom started yelling at me, literally yelling, that I was "blocking everything" as I tried to figure out how to get in line to dump. Scared me to death so I left without waiting

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry, I was yelling because I was on top of a running diesel tractor and wasn't sure you could hear me. We were very busy trying to repair the roads.
Jul 17, 2017
It was fine no problems and was as expected

WiFi is worthless other than that we had a good stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our busiest season, wifi performance suffers.

The weather was not perfect, but no one has control on that. Saturday evening a massive rain, hail storm came thru and washed out the roads in the campgrounds. The owners and staff went right to work as soon as the storm moved out. They were amazing. It was a lot of extra work for them and it already was late in the evening. I so appreciate all they did to remedy the problems. We will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, glad to have you back!
Jul 17, 2017
Good stay. Nice facility. Let them know I was leaving a day early on a 3 night stay more than 24 hours in advance but nothing was offered toward a refund. A little disappointing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We offer rain checks on early departures.
Jul 17, 2017
Except for thunderstorm, rain and hail causing washout of roads, which of course is nobody's fault, we had a wonderful time. The camp employees did a fantastic job at cleaning up the mess caused by the rain right away, they all need a pat on their backs. A very nice camp with a great view of the valley below and the mountains.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- appreciate your noticing our work!
Jul 14, 2017
The owners and staff were amazing. I was part of a group of bikers that stayed 10 days, and will recommend this campground to all my friends.

We were glad to have you, and your group is welcome back any time- Thanks!
