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.

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.

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.

Great folks that are accommodating. Clean. Nice social events.

Too few amenities for the price. Sewer dump in camp site was not effective since it had to run uphill. Most of the staff was very friendly, but one was very rude! Campsites were way to crowded. Occupancy limits need to be set! Pot smoking should not be allowed in the campground. Trash disposal was inconvenient with trash pickup each morning. Trash was gone through by camp staff prior to disposal

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We limit our sites to 6 people per site, if multiple sites gather in one spot it is tough to control. We expect adults to behave responsibly, and respect their fellow guests. Please alert staff to any issues. We pick up trash as we have had non guests fill our dumpsters, there are barrels available.

Absolutely outstanding! All the staff was warm welcoming and helpful in any situation :) the campgrounds were clean and well organized! Easy access to anything you needed. Only way to improve would be a pool ;) Thank you so much for a camping trip to remember. Definitely coming back and recommending!!!!

In order to keep up with the demands of it's visitors the campground needs to dramatically increase the strength of the wifi signal.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have decent wi-fi for the area- but during periods of high demand it does slow down. Not just for us but all users in this area. We try to remind guests to use it for email and not for downloads or online gaming.

Best KOA we stay in! New bath house is amazing.
Jul 01, 2015
What an awesome campground! We had a perfect view across the valley towards the collegiate peaks, and couldn't have been happier!
Jul 01, 2015
Wonderful service and attitudes, great views and sites...will certainly make this a destination again.

Great views & wonderful staff. Will definately be back next yesr!

We were yelled at for using hammocks for which no one told us we could not use when we entered the camp, nor was it included in the list of rules we were given. This particular staff member (which claimed to be the owners wife) was very rude about it. Other than that, our stay was better than expected.

Very good.

The staff was SO kind! They were eager to help in any way they could. And they offered a free cup of milk at breakfast. I loved coming here as a kid and I'm happy to bring my kids here!

Very friendly staff and the campground was very clean. I had a beautiful campsite for my first solo camping trip!

The campground was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our kids really enjoyed the playground, and there is a nice dog area as well.
Oct 18, 2014
Great owners and facility! Helen directed me to the best site in the place, which i fondly call the "bird nest". Nice views and lots of birds. May have seen a prairie falcon. Thanks
Oct 01, 2014
Beautiful setting. Helen checked us in and was very nice and friendly. She apparently had a couple of days off and her replacements could have been friendlier. In 2 days I never saw a single smile. They were helpful......just never smiled
