Campground Reviews

Limited to NO INTERNET. nO pool, very dIssasitified. but you pay for what you get .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not have a pool, we are at 8037 feet in a high desert environment- and we don't claim to have one. Our internet does get bogged down when the campground is busy- which it is in July.

Nice actual campground feel compared to a lot of commercial RV parks that feel like a trailer park or a parking lot with hookups. Very scenic. Helpful staff.

Water was undrinkable because of the water softener treatment, the wifi did not work, and it had a pretty view.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Actually the water from the faucet was fine, the water in your campers lines needs to be cleaned out- it was stagnant.

Staff was friendly the view gorgeous. Our campsite was littered with cigarette butts which was gross. I told office personnel but nothing was done. So, that was unfortunate. Otherwise a nice stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the cigarette butts, we will speak to our staff about proper cleaning.

The cabin was cozy especially when it rained! We were used to tent camping so this was a luxury.

We had a wonderful time camping at the Buena Vista KOA. The staff was very nice and friendly. We were so appreciative of the owner, as we arrived after dark at 9:30. He was so helpful, as he helped my husband back in to our spot. It would have been difficult if he hadn't been there helping us. We especially liked all the hiking trails. The shower house was clean and the KOA store is awesome!

The Kamping Kabin we stayed in was nice. The shower house water heater broke down during our stay and the other bathrooms were quite dirty during the day. The number of restrooms seemed insufficient for the number of campsites in the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, it was the busiest week of the year and we were unable to keep the bathrooms as clean as we'd like with the number of users- we had to take two rooms out of service on the bath house.

Delicious coffee with breakfast, bathrooms stocked, staff friendly. It's always a great stay for us!

Owner and hired help were very polite yet firm in following the rules. The rules are for and make the park a better place. Love the setting, sage brush etc. Is a desirable place to stay and enjoy.

Glad you enjoyed your stay, our rules are based on respecting all our guests to ensure everyone has a great stay.

Overpriced dust bowl, views are good but office staff not very helpful. Would not stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry we were unable to escort you to the site when you arrived two hours early, we had one person in the office and the rest of the staff was cleaning sites and bathrooms. Thanks for not returning!

It was a very clean and quiet campground. The people were friendly and it is just a short drive into town. We drove to the Sand Dunes because they were only a little over an hour away.

Thanks for staying with us!

we stayed 1 night in a tentsite. alot of space in the campsite. I loved the breakfast at the cook shack and a great price. Not enough toilets and showers for many campers that stay there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our satellite bath house water heater failed on July 3rd, which cuts into the available showers. Not much we could do on a holiday weekend.

Paid for a site with complete hookups. The sewer inlet was at least 8 inches higher than my discharge. I had to use the dump station to avoid spilling sewage. I should have saved some money and signed up for a site with just water and electricity.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will dig that up and adjust the height in our off season- digging up sites is difficult when there are lots of guests around. For that particular site you are the first one to complain since we added sewer to it this spring.

I'd like to try a different tent site next time. It was hard to find level ground for both the tent and the picnic table without feeling we were invading the people right next to us while they were eating. It was clean. Ice-cream on Saturday night was great. Breakfast on Sunday morning was very good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you have a particular site you'd like to stay in, please give us a call and we'll try to get you in it.
