Campground was nice and well kept. The local area is beautiful during the Fall. We would stay here again!

Check in was pleasant, reception attentive and professional. Store carries many necessities Campground is in dire need uf care and updating. For the price, one should expect at least gravel sites, not dust and dirt. Connection for sewer hook up was 1.5 ft above ground level, making emptying the tanks almost impossible. Water pressure was extremely low and internet poor.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have had a very dry summer, so we are dusty.We have limited internet options, and on busy weekends our limited bandwidth does result in poor internet. The sewer opening is at most 3 inches above ground level, the sewer pipe in that location is cast iron with shallow soils, so relocation is extremely difficult, as I discussed with you.

Had a nice one night stay but don't drink the water, it tastes terrible. I'm sure it's well water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is well water

Wonderful location, clean shower house, except the other private bathrooms didn’t have water pressure sufficient to take a shower - waste of time. The cabin windows could use some cleaning. .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've been power washing and staining our cabins and had some over spray.

A nice KOA with a wonderful view. I did have an issue making the reservation. I called on Thursday night and was told there was a cabin available. I called back first thing Friday morning and the person who answered the phone gave me conflicting information and when I asked for clarification they seemed to get angry with me. I ended up making the reservation using the 800 number

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The 800 number actually goes directly to our campground.

Your staff is very kind, the cabin I stayed in was very clean and well kept up. No issues, highly recommend to anyone.

Muddy entrance road and dirt roads in campground resulted in dirty camper, in and out, and dirty hoses and cords at hookup posts. Polite and friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a rustic setting, and most guests prefer it that way.

This is the most beautiful situated KOA I have visited. We stayed at the fantastic Tent Kabin and at Kabin #1. All cabins except #3 (that spot is very uncharacteristic for this KOA: next to the parking) are situated very nice. The owner was very tense in her function as staff member/leader. When I spoke to Her 1:1 she was extremely nice. I would come and stay here anytime!

Glad to have you back!

It was exactly what we expected and it was nice that there was a fan, a heater, a broom, and a fly swatter in the room just in case. Thanks for letting us rest in your cabins.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

This is our second stay here and we really like this campground, especially that it's set back a ways from the highway. Sadly, there was a group of women across the road from us (in P6) who were horribly rude and loud late into the night, so they ruined our sleep - waking us up abruptly one night and talking too loud and late the next. Other than that, it was wonderful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if someone is disturbing your stay and we'll deal with the situation immediately

Great time, a lot of outstanding hiking trails. Close to town so we took advantage of the local golf course. Great drives to an old mining area by Saint Elmo. Look forward to visiting again next year. Save some ice cream to us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Will do!

This was the perfect place for my 5-year-old grandson. Great playground and lots of room to ride his bike. The staff was super friendly.

We loved our stay! Dom and Helen were the best and all the other staff. The campground is very clean and bathroom showers were great. We were in a tent spot and it was very nice. My sister and her husband were in a camper site and we spent most of our time there and had a great time. Dog park was great since we each had a dog. Ice cream social was delicious. We will be back! Tom and Debbie

We had a great time. I wish the Internet were stronger. It’s difficult to even check on important world events, which to me is important. Everything was in great shape. We enjoyed our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are bandwidth limited here, and only have one internet provider available.
Sep 16, 2018
All in all a good stay. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Site P50 is impossible to back into from the instructions given (clockwise around loop), especially at night. I would recommend having guests go counterclockwise in the loop.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll keep an eye on the bathrooms. Normally we take P50 arrivals counterclockwise- perhaps the girl making the night maps messed up, sorry.
Sep 16, 2018
Cabin was nice. Heater worked well. The bathrooms had low water pressure. Difficult to take showers. Wish staff would check out pressure daily.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well, and when lots of guests are on the grounds the water pressure gets lower.

Love this campground. Has many great sites. The poeple ard always so nice and very helpful. Please tell the guy who was raking #14 on Friday morning the 14th. The couple he was telling the history of the campground to, the wife found an arrowhead the next day. Thank you..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll pass that along, thanks!

The staff was helpful and friendly. The location was convenient for our drive home and it’s in a beautiful area. My only complaint is that the WiFi connection was painfully slow - almost unusable. I understand that It was a busy weekend but it’s still a service I needed in order to communicate while on the road. Regardless, I’ll probably stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have one provider here, and are bandwidth limited. On busy weekends performance is bad.

Great hosts... really take care of the place. Had a mix-up on checkout date. Good hiking around the park... close to town...be advised the town of Buena Vista kis not dog friendly...Salida, however, is very dog friendly.

Beautiful Views good location, noisy at night, campsites very close to one another, no bbq pit available for campsites, clean bathrooms, pleasant and helpful staff, well stocked store easy in and out.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Every one of our sites has a fire pit and picnic table in the site. We do have grill boxes that can be put in the fire pit for use. And on Labor Day weekend we were full.

The physical site was great, had 2 major problems. First, was not existing water pressure. The second was a power surge that melted our neutral wires. Yes, I now will buy a surge protector, but have traveled well over 30,000 miles and never had a problem. I did fix it myself, and finish our trip. I have to thank Holiday RV in Poncha Springs for their help diagnosing the problem(at no charge

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site you were in had completely new electrical service installed this spring, individual circuit for the site, off of a new transformer. *Edit to add- I opened up the pedestal at your site and found no signs of electrical damage or loose wires.

Very disappointed in the laundry hours. We were only there 1 night traveling through. We called ahead to make sure they had laundry facilities. They never mentioned they had very short hours. We got in a few minutes after 7:00 pm and planned to leave by 8:00-9:00 a.m. Upon arrival we learned the hours were 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 pm. Highly disappointed!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As our laundry room is attached to our office, it's open when the office is open. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day it's open 8am to 9pm- early and late in the season the hours are shorter.
Sep 12, 2018
Great stay, as usual. But the showers had such low water pressure that it was very difficult to take a shower. It was an issue the last time we stayed as well...I'd hope they could get it fixed soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When we have a full park (like on Labor Day weekend) our water system gets strained.
Sep 12, 2018
We have stayed here quite a number of times over the years and will keep coming back. The views of the Collegiate peaks are awesome and lot's to do in Buena Vista. We found out that there were newer shower rooms installed a couple years ago so went over to try them out. The are nice but the water pressure was so bad we had to try three of the five before found one that worked.

This KOA lacked amenities such as a work out area, pool and hot tub. All it was we're a dirt parking lot. This compares not at all to the Fort Collin's KOA.
