Campground Reviews

The only negative comment would be on price, $37 for a tent site is a little high. The location is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. The facilities are clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The other campgrounds in the area have showers that require guests to feed quarters- we do not. We do work hard to keep the campground nice, thanks for noticing!

Dusty and noisy with bikes and trucks in campground. Sites very close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert location, dust is an issue.

The owner was very nice. The recreation room was nice. The site was nice. The laundromat was reasonably priced. The views were outstanding! There is very little grass and a lot of sand. The water didn't taste good. They said they had to treat it. It must be from a well. We will be staying again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, we are on a well.

They were very helpful in upgrading us to a better location. It was quiet and enjoyed the views of the valley.

Had the "honeymoon campsite"-- it overlooked the whole KOA and provided amazing views. Was a little hike from the restroom, but worth it for the privacy. No pool which was a bummer because it 90 degrees plus. But, Buena Vista, one of my fave Colorado towns was close and the ice cream cooled us off. Restrooms were a bit dated- but were clean-- which is essential for a good review from me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! There are no places with outdoor pools in the area- except the hot springs.

We moved to a back in site. It was nice, but is only 20 amp. The staff didn't seem to understand or know that it wasn't 30 amp. It worked out because I had adapter and didn't need to run the AC.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working our way through the sites to upgrade to 30 amp minimum on all water and electric sites.

The campsite was very good and the breakfast shack was awesome! Helen and Dom were so nice to us and our kids. Great location to BV. A couple of the showers could have better pressure, not sure what the issue was , but they were very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are trying to figure the shower issue out as well.

Friendly, well maintained and clean campground. Sleeping in a tent, it would be nice if tent sites were available further away from traffic noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our tent sites are mostly on the perimeter of the campground. On busy weekends the ones furthest from the roads are used first.

It was a great camp but the wifi was terrible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Busy weekend, lots of people on the wifi, performance gets bad.
Jun 20, 2017
Wifi was pretty much non-existent

On a busy weekend, wifi is tough to provide.

We camped for 2 days with our truck and camper and were connected to water and electric. There were two of us and our dog. We each took a nice shower at the campground and enjoyed being parked in the shade under a big elm tree; we could look through our skylight above our bed and see a nest in the tree and all the branches of the tree and the blue sky. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Very glad you enjoyed your stay!

The young lady I spoke to on the phone set me up with only electric instead of full hook ups as requested. The staff in general was OK except for one of the young staff members look like she slept in her yellow KOA Shirt. Also very low water pressure. Very primitive campsites with hook ups. Maybe it's just me being picky but paying over $50 for a site like this is unreasonable. Other KOA's ni

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry there may have been a phone mix up with your same day reservation, but you were in a full hookup site. Our water pressure can vary as we are on a well, but that area is supported by our storage tank as well.

I really, really enjoyed our stay. Dom and his crew are the Best!! Kris and his fellow workers are so friendly and very knowledgeable. I'll be telling all my friends about it and I will be back. Thank you all for a wonderful stay. 😎

Everything was great EXCEPT for wifi which was terrible. RV parks cannot seem to provide a reasonable wifi experience to anyone and this campground falls into that same cohort. I would have rated the entire stay much higher is only you would provide decent wifi.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you value wifi more than the camping.
Jun 12, 2017
The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The facility was very nice, youvant beat the views! My kids loved the playground. The food from the Cook Shack hit the spot. We stayed in a tent cabin and it was the perfect camp spot. The rocking chair and the area beneath the tree by the picnic table and fire pit were shaded at all the necessary times. Loved it!

last minute one night stay for two families. Tent site T-30 and B31, both excellent sites with a view and shade. Wish they had a pool.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are at 8000 feet in the rockies, in a high desert environment. The only outdoor pools in the area are at the hot springs.

Beautiful spot in the rockies, hosts Hellen and Tom are excellent people...Will definitely return to this KOA!!!
