Dirty dusty roads, bathrooms stunk & not clean,worst KOA I’ve every stayed at - and the most expensive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On Labor Day weekend with a full park it is difficult to keep the bathrooms as clean as we'd like, sorry about that.

We really liked our tent site, the ice-cream social and the morning Sunday breakfast.

Glad you did!

This was exactly the type of KOA we were looking for.It was my first time to camp in a bona fide campground with hookups. We found a beautiful spot B27 nestled on a ridge by boulders and trees a lovely view of the Arkansas Valley.. We were so glad we didn't stay at the RV park in Buena Vista!

Thanks for staying with us!

Bathrooms are filthy. Dusty woodwork dirty floors

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry, we have spoken to our cleaning crew regarding the bathrooms and expect they will be cleaner in the future.

All went well, nice location, facility was clean, & helpful. Only thing is the WIFI didn’t work in office area. But would recommend this place to friends.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our public wifi antenna is on top of the main building, and our office has a metal roof which interferes with the wifi signal.

Staff was awesome. Everything was clean. Only knock was water pressure was on the low side but a huge deal.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well, and when their are lots of folks using water, the pressure does drop. Thanks for staying!

The Buena Vista KOA is very nice. We liked the cabin but it could have been a little cleaner especially under the beds. The bathrooms could have been a little cleaner too. The fan in the ladies bathroom was in need of cleaning and had lots of dust on it. Yuck! We thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. The ice cream fun raiser is a great idea and the food was good and store well stocked

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have taken the fans down and cleaned the dust- we'll remind our staff about cleaning under the beds. Glad we made your stay enjoyable.

Beautiful location, nice layout...but the men's restroom/showers was very dirty...staff was very nice and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On busy days it's tough to keep up with the mess in the bathrooms!

The night sky was wonderful, We enjoyed seeing God’s creations. Yes there really are bazillons of stars in the sky. I saw em!

Beautiful! Very clean! The washers and dryers are like new and very clean which is very important to me. All of the staff was very friendly! We loved it so much we came back and stayed an additional night a few days later. I have already recommended this KOA to others. We're from Florida and hope to make it back to that area again. If we do we'll stay at this KOA.

Amazing views, clean facilities, and a very accommodating staff make this place a true gem in Colorado!!

Thank you very much!

Price was too high for campsites that are sloped. I was expecting level campsites. Maybe I'm expecting too much. Well, I've stayed in mountain state sites that were more level than that. And the condensation telling me that no one has complained before wasn't necessary. They offered me a drive through site that was almost level. That was nice. But they charged me for an upgrade. No cust service

Thank you for not returning

Not really clean... but staff was helpful.

During our busiest time of year it is difficult to keep ahead of the mess.

It was really quite nice. We ALWAYS disperse camp in the National Forest Service and were a bit nervous and concerned of what we were getting ourselves into for a overnight stay and we were very pleased with this particular KOA and will be back for quick overnight stays in the area.

Thanks!

The electric hook up fuse was blown upon arrival but they sent up a great guy to get fixed right away. Beautiful view of the mountains from our campsite. Thanks for a memorable stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The circuit breaker had been tripped, happy to get it fixed quickly.

Our site was dangerously out of level. You need to work on your sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are the first person to complain about the level on that site.
Aug 24, 2019
Nice place! Only complaint, and this is common to many campgrounds, is the location of fire rings. Our next door neighbors' fire ring was about 10' from our slideout window. This made it impossible to keep our windows open and enjoy the cool evening air. Smoke smell in our RV was extremely strong and spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our terraced sites on the hill (where you were) would be difficult to restructure to move fire rings.

It was a lovely time at the KOA in Buena Vista. The views were spectacular. The air was crisp. Beautiful mountain ranges as far as the eye could see. Friendly faces added to the welcoming retreat. Easily accessible campsites and amenities. A playground for the children so they can burn some of that energy. Only thing I didn't like was the horrible cell reception. Otherwise would have been perfect.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Verizon and AT&T are the cell providers that work best in the area, but they have dead zones, and the infrastructure has trouble with the summer crowds.
Aug 24, 2019
The cabin was extremely hot and was very difficult to sleep in due to the heat. We left 1 day early because it was very uncomfortable. The men's room had disturbing comments etched into the stall doors, needs to be painted over.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have painted the men's room stall doors, we needed a quite day with less use for the paint to dry.

Due to RV engine trouble, had to cancel RV site and was able to reserve a cabin. Unfortunately, the west exposure had full sun all day. Inside was same if not hotter than the sunny day. Too hot! Went to a motel room in town. The manager stated "no refunds". My stay was over $300. I did ultimately get partial refund. I wish it was different, but cabins are also farthest from showers/bathrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were complaining when you arrived that there wasn't parking right in front of the bathrooms, but on the other side of our main building. Western exposure also gives the best views of the mountains.

Not LIKE ANY OTHER KOA that we have stayed at before. Some of the trails thru the campground would be almost impossible to get a motorhome into. Out in the middle of nowhere with sagebrush and dirt and sand parking and "trails." Definatetly will not go back or recommend anyone else. Our dogs didn't even want to go outside our motorhome. J.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a flash flood a few days before your stay and are still repairing our roads.

Clean, easy to navigate, quiet, great location, what’s not to like?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay!

Placed almost out of campground and bath houses were both a long hike. Newer bath facility had toilet/sink/shower combo which is nice. However, the sink had plenty of hot water but no hot or warm water was to be found at any setting in the shower.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if there is a problem while you are here so we can figure out the issue and fix it. Thanks for staying!
Aug 21, 2019
Everyone was very friendly. Our spot was on a hill with no trees, and it was hard to level the trailer, as it was on a slope. But the facilities were good, and the breakfast at the Cook House was amazing!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Nice plots, tremendous views, well maintained facilities. Everything we needed for a good hiking basecamp. The staff was very kind and it was great to have some amenities to come back to after hiking each day. Also very close to Buena Vista, so it was easy access to anything else we needed.

Thank You!

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.
