great hosts! My kids loved the game room. And the lovely way they were treated and respected by the hosts and allowed to borrow the pucks and balls on their own. We loved to trail access. Thanks for having us!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a great stay- your kids were very well behaved, be proud!

I have needed to camp on the way to Denver from Gunnison County three times this summer and stayed each time at the Buena Vista KOA. It's quiet, clean, comfortable with friendly staff. What more could anyone need?

Thank You- glad to have you here!

The staff was very friendly. There seems to be plenty of things to do for kids, as there are rock formations, and a small playground on premises. The location is right off 285, so if you blink you miss the exit, (CR ) that goes to the campground. Overall the place is very dusty with a good amount of long term residents. Has a trailer park vibe.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We don't have any long term guests, don't do monthly or seasonal stays. You were near our one work campers site.

The water pressure at our site was almost nonexistent because the water valve was replaced with a smaller than a normal 3/4" valve.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you are having an issue during your stay please let us know so we can address it. Sorry we couldn't let you leave at 4pm, but we did have another guest coming into that site.

Our RV site met the minimum standard for RV parks. The WiFi was unacceptable and the the dust and dirt was everywhere . This is the second time we stayed at this location and we haven’t seem any improvements.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in the mountains, with limited internet connectivity. Perhaps you should stay in an urban area if internet is so important to you. We had a flash flood thru the campground a few days before you came, and are still cleaning up.

Lovely view but site very unlevel. Required use of additional step to get into motorhome which resulted in step sliding toward motorhome when someone entered or exited coach. Bath house restrooms roomy but shower water temperature and pressure were not good. Evidence of mildew on shower base.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a flash flood a few days before you came, and haven't gotten thru all the sites for leveling yet.

We stayed only one night. The facilities were old and dirty. Women in the office/store were friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The campground was built in 1965, we are upgrading as we can afford.

Nice, quiet, clean park. Stayed on a Thursday evening. Had a shady pull through space across from the dog park, which was nice for our 2 dogs.

Nice quite campground. Beautiful setting on the side of a hill, beautiful rock faces. There was a prairie dog/ghoper town on both sides of the drive. They were active and visible in the mornings. Pads are not concrete, but are solid. Roads are dusty dirt. They try to keep them damp to help with the dust. We had a heavy rain and the roads held up well. Bath house are ok. Nice store and owners.

Convenient to Buena Vista and Salida. More primitive than most KOA stops - fairly level spots but no cement pads or gravel would be tedious with any precipitation.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a lot of older utility lines buried under the sites, so paving wouldn't work. We do lay out gravel, but it's been washed away with recent rains.

stayed here 2x and it was grand. this time I got there after hours, website said they close at 9pm, but the sign on the door said 7pm. my site# was on the door, ok, except no lights to find site, no signs at intersections, many roads to chose from. next morning I went to check out and the man yelled at me that they didn't open till 9 (it was 8:45), he was pissed. yelled "what do you want" rude!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You had called at 730pm and heard our answering machine stating we had switched to fall hours (close at 7, open at 9) and walked into our closed office while we were getting the outside facilities open for the day. You had already yelled at another guest trying to bring their dog into the dog park- and yelled at me about no one being in the office.

We had a wonderful time just staying overnight and a day. Grounds are well kept. Store is amazing, they have everything you need if you forgot. In fact, shop here even if you're staying elsewhere for some reason. One of the maintenance guys helped me for hours when I was having hydraulics problems with the popup. Chris is an amazing character who can tell you about local history and artefacts.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we were able to help!

There had been a huge rain the day before we got there so it was hard to tell but our campsite was pretty unlevel. The bathrooms could have been cleaner but on the other hand the people were friendly and it was quiet so I probable use this campground again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, it takes a while to clean up after a flash flood- that was our second one in the past month.

I camp here often. The owners are hard working people.

very cool park, however the dirt made it very dusty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

August was very dry, so we did get dusty...

Great staff! Nice spacious campsites! Great amenities! Roads are a bit dusty however.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When it's dry, they do get dusty as we are in a high desert environment.

Had a great time. Plenty of activities to do and site was clean. Bathrooms may need some work but also it's near the end of the season

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Doing a complete bathroom remodel is an expensive proposition. We do our best to keep them clean.
Sep 03, 2019
The cabin was clean and everything I expected from looking online. The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. I would definitely stay again!!

Really nice owners and great campsites to match the fantastic views of the Collegiate Peaks. Definitely a return visit in future. 😊

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.
