We loved being right below a small mountain that we could climb. The camp ground had lots of things for us to do, the convenient store was so cute and the pizzas smelled so delicious! Next time we will order one.

Nice and clean as always. They were cleaning the facility nonstop, even cleaning the bathroom as late as 9 o'clock at night. We walked to the campground and all the tent sites had been raked. Very pleasant staff.

We really enjoy this KOA. We love the campsites that have lovely open views, appreciate clean bathrooms, friendly hosts and staff, well stocked store and rec. space with pool table, ping pong, air hockey. This KOA had access to a very pretty hiking trail that led up to a scenic view spot. This KOA is one of my favorites with access to great hiking and activities through the area.

Nice view. Camp site was a bit far from the bath house. Only water. No electricity. Bathrooms were not always clean. Nice playroom with ping-pong table, pool table, etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have one tent site that has water and electric. On a busy weekend with afternoon showers it is very difficult to keep the bathrooms as clean as we would like.

The staff was very friendly, the facilities were clean, and our firewood was delivered quickly.

Clean, friendly, quiet. Simple campground is respectful of the beautiful surrounding area. Staff is helpful and friendly. Helen makes a mean breakfast!

Clean facilities. Easy to find. Great amenities

The campsite was clean, quiet, and beautiful..until a neighboring camper arrived after dark. They were inconsiderate, loud, and obnoxious well into the wee hours of the morning. I was surprised in the morning when I woke to find they were adults and not teenagers. While I would love to say my stay was five stars, the rudeness of these campers makes me not want to return.

Clean facilities. Good mountain views.

I felt the tent cabin was not safe for a single woman to sleep in because it had no security lock and there was a gaping window. I ended up sleeping in my car. I wish the lack of security would have been made clear in the description of the unit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are replacing the canvas walls on the tent cabin this off season. The description and photo's clearly show it has canvas walls- so it is as safe as any tent.

Friendly staff, great trail and beautiful views. Would recommend adding more showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a second bathhouse with bathrooms and showers. In July the campground is very busy.
Jul 27, 2017
The staff was extremely friendly, and welcoming. It is close to town with lots of things to do, hiking was from KOA grounds.one thing I did learn monsoon season is July, next time will be a different month.

Glad you enjoyed your stay- sorry we can't control the weather!

I woke up to cedar waxwings and humming birds flitting about the juniper tree over my head.

Not the nicest KOA I've stay at but the bathrooms were clean and that is the most important to me. Lots of junk behind the office area making it look "low end". It also seemed like for the size of the camp, they needed more bathrooms that are closer to some of the sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a second bath house on the east side of the campground. The ledge/rock on the west side makes plumbing for another bath house difficult.
Jul 23, 2017
The staff was very congenial and supportive. We made some changes to our reservations and they we able to create the accommodations. Will return at a future date. THANKS, Buena Vista KOA!

We picked this KOA because the last time we were in BV we stayed at Chalk Creek campground, and had trouble sleeping due to being right off the highway. This KOA is tucked back away from the road a little so you don't get as much noise. Despite this, I feel it's over-priced; next time I'll stay at Collegiate Peaks and just go into BV for showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced quite close with the other commercial campgrounds in the area.

Tent sites on a hill with great view but don't have adequate drainage should you get caught in a storm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some sites have drainage issues- but only in severe rain events- during which all sites have drainage issues.
Jul 22, 2017
The only thing I wish the ownership would do is enforce the quiet hours policy. Too noisy. The facilities are always clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do try to enforce quiet hours, but can't be everywhere. We don't force folks to put out fires at 10pm, but ask them to keep voices down. If someone is being loud please call the night emergency number (on the back of your site map) and we'll be right out.

This is my third years staying at KOA in Buena Vista for rafting trips. My son loves the ping pong and air hockey tables and the convenient snack shop. I enjoy the cabins and the tent sites are also nice. Definitely plan on staying at KOA in the future.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- glad to have you back!

The campground was cramped and the landscape was rocky and dry.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment.
Jul 17, 2017
Had a great time, staff very friendly. Had a bad storm that came through and the staff worked to keep everything open.

We've stayed at this KOA several times and you just can't beat the location (there's so much to do in the area!), the grounds and the friendly staff. We are tent campers and find the sites to be very well tended and not too terribly close together. Highly recommend!

Have no complaints about the campground itself. The only one I have is about the wifi. Was hoping to get a little work done. But the wifi signal was extremely weak or non existent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on the wifi- it was the holiday weekend and we were full, so our limited bandwidth does get used up pretty quickly.

Decent, no tent pad at the tent site, had to set up on the "driveway". Neighbor's are all real close, facilities were ok. For $40 per night I expected a little more

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On holiday weekends we are a little more expensive.

This KOA site was in a great location and close to Buena Vista. The major down side for campers is the numerous amount of ants. It made sleeping and hanging out uncomfortable. For that reason I would not recommend this for campers. Otherwise it was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment and put down a lot of ant poison. You didn't mention the issue while you were here, we would've tried to spray the active ant hills.
Jun 25, 2017
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were very nice although I didn't really have a chance to use too many of them. The restroom/shower area was very clean. I was camping with a tent and the place I was given to set up didn't really have a tent pad area and where it was level, there wasn't much shade. However, I know I am being very critical just because it was hot and dusty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wish we could control the weather. Most folks set up their tent in the gulch just below the site.
Jun 24, 2017
The only negative comment would be on price, $37 for a tent site is a little high. The location is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. The facilities are clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The other campgrounds in the area have showers that require guests to feed quarters- we do not. We do work hard to keep the campground nice, thanks for noticing!
Jun 22, 2017
Had the "honeymoon campsite"-- it overlooked the whole KOA and provided amazing views. Was a little hike from the restroom, but worth it for the privacy. No pool which was a bummer because it 90 degrees plus. But, Buena Vista, one of my fave Colorado towns was close and the ice cream cooled us off. Restrooms were a bit dated- but were clean-- which is essential for a good review from me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! There are no places with outdoor pools in the area- except the hot springs.
Jun 21, 2017
Friendly, well maintained and clean campground. Sleeping in a tent, it would be nice if tent sites were available further away from traffic noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our tent sites are mostly on the perimeter of the campground. On busy weekends the ones furthest from the roads are used first.
