This is our 3rd time here at this KOA. Nice and quiet weekend. Cabin is in great condition and well taken care of. Staff is friendly and helpful. Will be back next year!

Owners rude and you can tell they were at the end of the season. Moved down the road and stayed at another campground that was amazing. People don’t have to stay with rude people and give them money

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you arrived after hours, parked in a site with water turned off- but grabbed a map that directed you to a site with full hookups, realized the mistake right after but didn't move, then came in and asked that the site be free and we said no. Thanks for not returning.

Staff was super friendly and helpful! Can’t wait to visit again next season.

I actually live in BV, and had some clients who were traveling through with their new trailer, so I decided to join them; I had the site next to them. We had a great time visiting over dinners and campfires! I was VERY impressed with this campground; the sites, facilities and personnel. I will definitely be recommending the Buena Vista KOA in the future!

It has been very interesting experiencing the different KOAs in ten states. Each have their unique qualities but the Mountain View here was incredible. We had a comfortable sleepover in a basic cabin in 20 degrees. Extra kudos to campground manager who replied to our call of distress when the fuse blew. He arrived immediately to set it to rights! Thank you!

We have always enjoyed this camp ground. This time, however, when we hooked up, the water pressure seemed very low. My husband walked down to the office and informed the owner. He told my husband that that seemed unlikely and "if we didn't like it we could get our money back and go elsewhere". We stayed but there was little pressure for our shower. I think this owner is in the wrong business.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well, and the water pressure at each site varies depending on number of people using water at any particular time, which I tried to explain to you and your husband several times.

Nice and convenient location. Staff was friendly and helpful. I am sorry we topped our water tank at this location as the water tasted very salty. We had to dump our water tank and refill down the road at Poncho Springs Visitor Center.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well and treat the water.

Beautiful setting. The dump station needs to be remodeled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This one has me confused.

Maybe it was the time of year (Oct.). We had to wait for hours before someone showed up at the store. He was very nice and the store was well stocked for RV's and food items. The first site we tried had deep grooves and no way to level. Our final site was better, but still needed leveling. The views from up high were awesome! Looking at the teeners was special. Their family room was a plus.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had two flash floods this year, second just after labor day and haven't had a chance to regrade all sites. During the off season we don't staff the office all day, but leave those with reservations maps to your site, and open sites for those without reservations to choose from.

Amazing weekend enjoying gorgeous scenery and Colorado fall colors! We love this place. It's clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and there's no lack of adventure and recreation in the area.

Good location. Moderate facilities. Staff that is clearly sick of customers at the end of the season

Great place, wonderful scenery, facilities were well maintained and clean and the campground was quiet. Fabulous trails in BLM land, which is on the north and east side of the KOA, are seemingly endless. However, the campground water, while being potable, tasted horrendous. It was very salty and probably heavily laden with minerals.

We are on a well, and do treat the water.

From the telephone call to make a reservation, every staff member we encountered was super friendly and helpful. One of the best KOA campgrounds we have stayed at. The view is spectacular! Loved our stay!

Glad we could help!

We arrived late and left very early, thank you for leaving our info for us so we could easily make a quick stop without being there during hours when it is staffed. I wish someone was around to tell the folks in the cabin next to us what quiet hours were but we let them know so we could sleep! Nice facilities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a night emergency number on the map, so if someone is loud after hours we can come up and quiet them down!

Poor roads, no TV, high price for area. Many options in area, better quality, lower price. I relocated after one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only had a site available for the one night you stayed. Yes we have no TV, cable never got to our side of the Arkansas River.

The views in Buena Vista are extraordinary. The owners of the KOA were friendly, helpful and great folks. Our cabin was adorable and we were very comfortable. The KOA store had almost everything imaginable form RV supplies, camp supplies, food and great collector items (t-shirts, stickers, etc.) I've never seen such a well stocked store. Laundry and rec room a plus.

Just beautiful! We loved our time here. Everything was just as it should be for a stay in BV. My only problem was the sand/gravel in my shoes. But that's not a big deal. �

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had two flash floods this summer that washed a lot of sand into the campground- takes a long time to clear out...

Enjoyed staying at this KOA.

while connecting our RV to the water supply, it leaked and had to be replaced. it was replaced. on the campsite the fire pits are very small and right next to the neighboring camper and their vehicle. the accommodations, ie: bathrooms, play grounds, showers are very out dated and to be remodeled. I don't believe I would stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The previous guest had left a pressure regulator on the spigot, which is what leaked. Once removed, there was no leak. WE added new playset two years ago and are replacing the swings this off season.

Too much sand in our spot. Obviously sand was put down to fight mud, .but that sand is sticky and ended up covering the floor of our RV and had to be swept every day. Otherwise, nice place

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had two flash floods this year, washed a lot of sand into the sites, we will be bringing in gravel to build up the base.

It is hard to find a campground that has a better view of the mountains than this KOA. The management team is very friendly and helpful. We have stayed there before, and will stay again.

We were in P48. The map to the site is confusing. The site is not level, a lot of loose dirt, Water pressure less than 20 psi, water and electric, and sewer were not placed well on the site, and the wifi was useless. Yes I could pull the coach forward so it was a pull through, but to hook up after driving to Buena Vista I had to go into 4 wheel drive and back up a steep curve. but great views,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have had two flash floods this summer which damaged most of our sites on the hill, we have been working on regrading them but need to get gravel delivered to finish up repairs,tough to do when open. We are on a well, and when busy the water pressure does drop.

Beautiful location, great sites, bathrooms should be updated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree, but bathroom upgrades aren't cheap.

Nice folks, good location and a clean campground! The coyotes singing at night were fun to drift off to sleep with and there were elk bugling around as well.

Bathrooms were absolutely unacceptable. This campground is not up to KOA standards.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our bathrooms are old, but they are kept clean. If they aren't please let us know.

We love it here, second year in a row, and we will be back.

We arrived after closing time and used the self check-in which was easy and clear. The sites are spacious enough. It was easy to manoeuvre with our 33ft RV. Unfortunately we could only stay for one night. We enjoyed our short stay at this well maintained park.
