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!

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.

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!

Too many weeds

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If it weren't for weeds there'd be nothing growing. We do work on cutting them.

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.

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.

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.

Great location, amenities and great staff!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

Had a wonderful stay owners were very friendly and made you feel very welcomed. Would highly recommend

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.

The campground was very nice, and even more important, the owners and staff were wonderful! Loved the breakfasts at the Cook Shack, too!

The view, owners and staff were great! Our grandsons enjoyed doing the crafts. Showers and bathroom facilities are kept very clean. The breakfast portions and price are very reasonable. We had a very pleasant stay.

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.
