Thank You!

Great, except site was constructed so that sewer connection could not be lower than our trailer outflow. Hard for waste to flow uphill!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As soon as we figure out a way to redo shallow buried cast iron pipe, we'll get that fixed!

Camped to our other Koa''s this one is sub standard, needs some work around sites crab grass, ant hill all over the ground, some paving would be nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a limited water supply, so we can't grow much grass. Please let us know if there are ants and we'll put dust down. If it's paved sites you want, perhaps a more urban campground would be a better choice.

Very nice KOA. Wonderful views, good staff and nice cap sites. Highly recommend and we'll be back. Good fly fishing close!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- but don't reveal the fishing spots!!!

We stay over night this time but will be staying there again. We have stayed in another campground many time but this one had more to offer in the way of a very very friendly staff, large dog park, and their little store has the largest variety of stuff I have ever seen. They are close to town, other sights and activities that we enjoy. Thanks and we will see you next year with a longer stay.

Be looking forward to your next visit!

Second time there this summer. The owners were great and very accommodating. Even after a long busy Labor Day weekend. And they provided 12” of snow for us! � Beautiful views of the mountains. Our youngest granddaughter loves to come and stay with us while there - she loves the bikes, playground and the game room. It is our go to campground while visiting family. Thank you Dom and Helen!

Glad to have you!

Our stay was a bit unusual. We were there "riding out" the recent winter snowstorm that hit CO just after Labor Day. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Didn't really use most of their facilities with the exception of the laundry, which was great. New, big commercial machines and dryers that worked well also. Price was very reasonable. Convenient location to activities in the area.

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

A great stay. The property is wonderful except for one issue. I have noticed the last few times I've stayed there that the water tastes bad. It's the same from indoor or outdoor water plumbing. I'm assuming that it may be well water. Would like to see the campground put in a filtration system to improve water quality and taste. Other than this the KOA is awesome.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well and have very high mineral levels in the water- which we do treat.
Sep 14, 2020
The People are great! The area as a whole was very clean. My only issue was the grade on my spot was almost beyond the capabilities of my little pop up camper jacks for getting it level. But, we got stuff to deal with it. Spectacular views, awesome hosts and, Quiet. I’d recommend the BV KOA to anyone.

This park was easy to get in and out of with a large 5th wheel and our site had plenty of room. It’s near many destinations and there are amazing hiking and biking trails right out of the park. The staff is friendly and helpful and next time we’re in the area we will be stopping here. Thanks guys!

Need better heater and better stair with handy rails

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The cabin you were in has a single step up to the deck from ground level.

Clean facility with beautiful views. Enjoyed the trail around the grounds.

Thank you!

The tent sites were very close together which meant you can hear everyone's conversation around you. The group next to us had about 4 cars so there was barely space for us to back out. The bathrooms weren't that clean and the trashes were overflowing each day and not in bearproof bins even though they "have a lot of bears visit them". Good location though! Nice proximity to many 14ers!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've had 3 bear "visits" in the last 7 seasons, so not a lot. We empty the trash barrels several times a day, but lots of campers = lots of trash and folks using the bathrooms.
Sep 09, 2020
Very nice view. Nice staff. Bathrooms could use some cleaning. Baseboard heater and shower handles set bad example of how clean everything actually is. Cabin was clean and mattress was comfortable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll check on those things, thanks!
Sep 09, 2020
Clean bathroom. The mattress in cabin 3 needs to changed out it is too flat and sags in the middle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll check the mattress in cabin 3.

Well maintained Kampground. Hosts were very pleasant and did a great job being at full capacity for the summers final weekend. Overall layout of the sites was nice as well.

The staff was very nice and the location was great. The condition of the shower house, however, was horrible. Neither toilet was working properly. One shower gave an electrical shock when you touched the shower head. A different shower only provided extremely hot water with no adjustment. The entire shower house was filthy and run down. Boardwalk outside was a tripping hazard. The worst KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know during your stay if there is something wrong so we can work on fixing it.

This campground is probably one of the prettiest to stay in in this area of the Colo mountains. The views are exquisite of the Collegian Peaks. Close to BV. The sites were not that well-kept. Several red ants hills throughout (we have 2 dogs), the sites need a little grader work (level?), bad weeds in many areas. Pleasant staff, stocked store, ran out of pizzas (bad!). But good place overall.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the pizza- late in season we try not to over order and be stuck with product.
Sep 08, 2020
Very friendly staff. Sorry to hear that they are possibly selling the campground. Hope new owners are as kind and friendly. Really enjoyed the ice cream social.

We have stayed at this KOA yearly for a long time now. This was the first time we were not happy. We booked with friends, put in notes to be together, called numerous times to confirm together, to find out we were moved to opposite sides of the campground and nobody was willing to help or even attempt an effort to fix the problem. End of the world,no, but not how our kids wanted to spend the holid

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do tell folks that the best way to ensure adjacent sites is to call the campground when you make reservations. Calling multiple times a few days before Labor Day weekend and expecting we will be able to move sites isn't realistic.
Sep 08, 2020
Great location & staff! Clean cabins! For such a large KOA there are only 3 mens showers, 2 toilets & 1 urinal. Need family shower rooms. 1 shower was not able to control temperature easily (far right) & another shower (middle) was mentioned to give a small electric shock when the shower head was touched adjusted. Bath/showers need to be updated & family room added like other KOAs i.e. Estes Park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have another bathhouse on the east side of the campground with family style bathrooms, which is on the map and mentioned when you check-in.
Sep 08, 2020
The cabin was dirty when we arrived. The mattress was the worst I’ve had. We couldn’t sleep. It was way too small for 2 people and you suggest 6 can stay there. We paid for 2 nights but stayed only one. For 100 dollars a night, I expected more

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll check on the mattress condition. It is a full sized bed, not a king or queen and the two room cabin has 4 bunk beds in the second room.

The setting for this campground is very beautiful. The rv sites are fairly primitive, being dirt and not level. Our site had two bent-over water pipes. A willow tree right next to the site had a branch that hung over and touch our motorhome. The men's restroom had much water on the floor and the trash can was overflowing. It didn't look like it had been cleaned for a day or two.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A guest bent the pipe earlier, we delayed straightening it out until we are less busy as we'll have to shut off several sites during repair. We have been quite busy and will focus on keeping up with restroom cleaning.

Buena vista KOA is a great campground. The owners are genuine, friendly and helpful. The location and view of the collegic peaks are breathtaking. The area offers rafting, hiking, fishing, ATV'S and more.

Excellent, except I wish you had LTE Cell Service your wifi supported streaming.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have limited internet options here, we get 25Mb/s over a radio link into the park for the guests to share. No cable or fiber options.

Nice campsite in a more private area of the campground. Bathrooms were clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. It would be nice if the dump station was open earlier than 8 am for an early departure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had people coming onto the property during off hours to dump without paying, so we lock the dump station when the office is closed.

Campground needs some TLC, a little run down. Sites 3 & 5 have the hookups on the wrong side of the site. Only KOA where I have seen this. Makes for an awkward stay because you're literally sharing the same space with your neighbor with the RV doors facing each other (will never stay in these sites again). There are great sites for tents and other sites for the RV we would consider however.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Those sites are often used by folks traveling together who wish to face each other- aka "buddy sites"
Sep 02, 2020
Helpful & courteous staff! Well stocked general store. Site was level and easy pull thru. The water pipe would be easier to spot if it was painted orange or cleared from grass. Tripped over it. Wish we could have stayed longer! Worth coming back on our next 2021 trip!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A guest bumped into the pipe and bent it, we've been too busy to shut down water to repair (since it isn't leaking)- it will be fixed when we quiet down!
Sep 02, 2020
very friendly. Huge bear going through trash cans scary.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in bear country- but that's only the third bear visit in the past 7 seasons.

Nice and quiet place to relax with views of the Collegiate Mountain range. You can stay in your RV or a tent “glamping” or in a tepee! ! The owners are so nice and we like staying there on trips into Colorado.
