Buena Vista KOA

Visit www.buenavistakoa.com for more detailed information!

The view from your campsite at this KOA is buena indeed - a panorama of five 14,000-foot-plus peaks framing this mountain valley. Tucked among rocks and shaded by pinon pines, the campground is a few miles southeast of the small resort town of Buena Vista and a mile from the Arkansas River.

Hike or bike on public land adjacent on three sides of the KOA. Your hosts can arrange for a wide variety of other pursuits - such as rafting, fishing, ATVing, jeeping and soaking in hot springs - or direct you to hiking trails, ghost towns and rockhounding sites.

At the KOA, play sand volleyball, basketball and horseshoes. Breakfast is served summer mornings in the Cook Shack. Enjoy this quiet and tranquil setting.

Groups are welcome!

WI-FI access is provided, but is extremely limited due to the lack of Bandwidth in the Arkansas River Valley. We apologize for any inconvience this may bring, but please ENJOY NATURE!!!

St. Elmo Ghost Town and Winfield, Vicksburg and Turret Ghost Towns

A trip out West is not complete without an outing to one of the region's ghost towns. St. Elmo, southwest of Buena Vista, is the best-known ghost town in the region but Turret, Winfield and Vicksburg are worth noting. On roads through the backcountry, you may also find relics of old towns that no longer exist on present-day maps, monuments to boom and bust mining cycles of the past 120 years. Virtually all the old buildings are privately owned. Please leave the buildings as you found them.
