Tent Reviews

Aug 24, 2015
The amenities were great for the beginning camper we brought with us. However, we did not find the staff to be friendly, and in a probable attempt to be funny, came across as rude.

It was okay...

The campsite is beautiful, clean, and in a wonderful setting. Staff and management were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

I stay there while traveling on business. The staff is friendly and helpful. And I can cut my expenses in half.

The staff was incredibly friendly, the park was beautiful, the sites were very well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back! The only recommendation would be to more clearly mark the turn into the campground. Thank you SO much for a great time!

The camp is fine and the people are helpful but $35 is way too much for a dirt pad for a tent and a shower.

Campground and bathrooms were very clean. We had a one night tent site, good shade. The area around is very beautiful. Employees were very polite and friendly. I lost my wedding ring at the site. When I called the next day I was assured they would send someone to look for it. Glenda called back that afternoon with great news. They had found my ring and would keep in the safe until I was able to re

This KOA is in a perfect location and it was nice and clean. The only complaint I would have is that the tent sites are a little close together which can be awkward.

My first time at a KOA. I arrived and found out I made a mistake on the date. They were very accommodating and simply switched my res. They were friendly, the campsite was nice and had a great view. Showers and restrooms were clean. Didn't use any of the rec facilities as we only stayed one night. We will definitely be back!

I do not recommend this KOA. Management/Staff wanted to charge $10 extra for my teenager's small tents and also extra $ for each of my children. Family friendly- not!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our policy is one camping unit per site- if the site will fit an extra tent we charge $10. Our site rates are based on two people as 65% of our campers are two adults, and it wouldn't be fair to charge all campers based on 4 people.

Service was great. Tent/cabin was very comfortable , just the right setup for my visit. New bath/showers are cleanest I've ever experienced.

After hearing complaints about the guests who trash everything, the staff they had who were "lazy native Coloradoans" and being unwilling eavesdroppers on a quickly rising, yelling tirade between a guest and the hosts because they had parked in the wrong place, we left with a sour taste in our mouths, wondering if they treat other guests and staff that way!

It was really clean and had a great facility.

Watch out for pine trees on your site, they can cause sticky messes on your tent!

Welcome to camping in the high desert- we have pinon pines.
Aug 03, 2015
This was our first time camping at a KOA and we were pleasantly surprised at how friendly the people were and how nice the facilities were.

Clean campground.Friendly,helpful staff.Only stayed one night,but I was impressed and would stop again.
Jul 29, 2015
Such wonderful service! Thank you for all you did to make our stay a roaring success. :)
Jul 27, 2015
Great place. We have been going there for years! Need to upgrade wireless.
Jul 27, 2015
Our site was likely the best tent site for the campground. Everything was clean, well kept as well as convenient. Bathrooms were always clean and the staff was not only helpful but friendly.
Jul 27, 2015
Only downfall is no pool. Great atmosphere

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in the high desert with a limited water supply- the only pools in the area are indoors or at the local hot springs.

Little shade, plant some trees. Noisy, but I like camping next to streams.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were 100% full this weekend, it quieted down in the evening. We are trying to get more pinon pines to grow (it is the high desert) but we lost a lot of limbs in the spring snowstorms this year.

This is a really nice KOA.

Dom and Helen are awesome hosts and make you feel like family when you walk in the door. The grounds are immaculate and were honored with the KOA President's Award. Should I need campground arrangements again, I will call Dom and Helen. They are number one in my book! Kathy Ainsworth

Beautiful tent site, yummy breakfast and warm, friendly and helpful staff. Before we left, I reserved a site for a future stay!

Probably one of the most beautiful and well-run KOA's I know. Friendly and helpful staff, and many things to do on the grounds. I would recommend this KOA as a stop-over while moving on to other locations. Buena Vista has nothing going for it. If you are into rafting or cycling, then perhaps this is the place for you. Well kept camping areas.
Jul 23, 2015
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Site was clean and well-maintained. Thank you!

As a single girl i appreciate staying at KOAs. they are safe and the amenities are nice.
Jul 21, 2015
I go to the hot springs there at least once a month and stayed at motes in town till I tried the koa in your town. Love the cabins and the camp grounds and will stay there every time there open.wish the cabins where open all year around.

This KOA hosted a family reunion over a week with about 20 people. A good time was had by all

Checking in was very easy. However, we purchased firewood which they said would be delivered and it never received it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry about the firewood- Friday night was extremely busy (over 40 checkin's) and it's possible your delivery got messed up- please let us know next time and we'll make it right!

This was our third stay at Buena Vista KOA. We love the campground and the cook shack (people running this couldn't of been nicer, and food very good). The problem we have with this campground is the ladies in the office. They are RUDE, UNHELPFUL, and UNCARING to their guests. The first time we thought they were just having a "bad day". But no! They continued to treat us and all guests disrespect

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you feel that way. If you could give me a call and let me know which staff was rude, I will speak to them. THEM.

Camp hosts were all great, when out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Thanks to all and enjoyed the breakfast! Best Koa stay in Colorado.
Jul 16, 2015

I love breakfast!!!
Jul 14, 2015
Great time! Staff was very friendly and keep the grounds clean. Trash collection was a treat. We will definitely be back again.
Jul 13, 2015
Our stay was great. We are a family of 11. The staff is amazing, so friendly and just all around great!!! Ladies in the office always made me laugh. Loved the new bath house. And ice cream while camping..... What a treat!!! And the portion size, wow you can't beat that! Thank you all for making our stay so enjoyable. Hope to see you next year. Stacey

Great amenities and very friendly staff. Camp sites were a bit close so no privacy, but overall a great place to stay.
