No tv/cable service is a bummer.

Cable TV never got to our side of the Arkansas River

Great tent site, hot very clean showers, clean washrooms. Sat under the stars and a full moon listening to coyotes or wolves! It does not get much better than that.

The staff were great and very helpfulI and the location is good. I would rate this site as 10 and 5 if it were not for the mens restroom. The toilets are child size, one of them was clogged most of the time. The urinal was mounted so high on the wall that none of the boys and most of the men were using it, causing lines in the restroom during peak times.

It was a busy weekend because it was Labor Day Weekend and an SJ5 Convention, but we still had a lovely weekend and everyone was respectful of each others space. The owners of the KOA are very friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the ice cream and root beer floats! Nice touch! Debby

Nothing fancy, but adequate sites. No trees to speak of. Beautiful views. Quiet. We didn't use any of the amenities like the store or shower. Staff was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees don't grow very well in our high desert environment.

Way too expensive for a simple tent camping. Overpriced for what you get. Paying close to $50 per night to camp in the tent is a rip off in my opinion. Other than that, it is another camping spot.

Thanks for staying with us- feel free not to return!

almost 2x the price of other campgrounds for rvs. Too expensive, $60 a night is like $1800 a month for a spot in the dirt! Seems high I think they need more reasonable rates.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced competitively with the other full service campgrounds in Buena Vista.

Our stay was wonderful. We rented the small cabin (sleeps 4) and were very comfortable. There was only two of us so we had plenty of room. We usually tent camp so this was a nice step up for us to not have to sleep on the ground and to have electricity and a heater available if needed. Camp ground was well cared for and bathrooms were neat and clean. Great view of mountains.

Nice campground and Management. Scenic location, clean buildings, and friendly atmosphere. We will be back.

Beautiful campground. It would be better if gravel were spread in the driveways. Sites are very unlevel, but that is to be expected because of the nature of the location of this campground. We've stayed here many times in the past.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on grading the sites- but during the busy summer we cant do a lot of grading without disturbing guests on site.

The campground is nice and enjoyable. You can tell some areas, especially the bathrooms are getting worn down after a long summer. The men's restroom faucet on the far right has a hole in the metal like I have never seen before. It looks like an acid cleaner ate away at the metal over time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's on our list of things to repair!

Had a local group event held here and it was amazing! Staff friendly and helpful for anything you need, camp was clean and well maintained!

Helen is such a sweetheart. She works her butt off from morning to night. The campground is clean and well maintained. Our kids loved the clubhouse room and park. Front desk was super nice. Washer/dryers and microwave available was very handy. Always love to come up here. Keep up the great work! ;)

This is a very nice and well maintained campground. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest ever. This is my second trip there and I will go back.

The informational sheet printed up that is given to all people who stay at the KOA showed a Wifi network name that did not exist. The network that DID exist would not work for me. I called the front desk and the young woman working there did not offer any help for this problem! Amazing. However, staff were helpful when I had issues with connecting my electric service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an issue with our wifi hardware and changed the network name. koacamperwifi became koacamper. We also suggested you try connecting outside your camper, as the metal walls interfere with the signal, but you declined.

The washing machines didn't work and the staff wasn't willing to give us a refund. Our space was not level at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have new washing machines installed this spring and they work fine. If you open them once they are running they will turn off, and we have signs over the machines warning about that.

When I called to check on availability and then called back the same day to make a reservation, the owner/woman I spoke to was awesome! She was very friendly and very helpful and funny. And to top it all off, the views from every direction were fantastic and the Wi-Fi was working.

IT WAS VERY NICE - Close to area activities, beautiful place to stay, lots of activities at the site as well. Sites not too close together, which is nice. Loved the breakfast and interaction with the other campers.

Great customer service. Camp breakfast was amazing! Pros: close to Buena Vista and Salida. Large camp sites. Very tent friendly. Decent game room. Cons: Very little shade, sandy non level sites, NO POOL, outdated restrooms/ low water pressure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. We are in a high desert environment- trees grow very slowly. There are no outdoor pools in the area (except at the hot springs) due to evaporation and heating. Restroom upgrades are in our future plans, but need to save up more money.
Aug 28, 2017
Young lady that checked us in...did not know how to print me a receipt, did not give us cabin key, had to go back to get it, did not tell us cabin # and her directions were, "HERE" and given a map...I am guessing she is new? We have stayed at KOA's many times and know that this is not normally how they treat customers. Everything else was really good.. Plan to be back in future.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about that, yes she is new. There is a little bit of a learning curve.

The family who owns the BV KOA are wonderful people. They do an awesome job keeping it very clean. Alway enjoy our stay there

After a hard day of driving, found this KOA by accident. What an amazing place. The view from our campsite was spectacular! Very close to the Arkansas River and the fun towns of Salida and Buena Vista. Loved it so much we stayed an extra day (would have stayed another, but our site had been previously booked.)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you found us!

Great place, need a little work on bath rooms

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Upgrading the bathrooms is in our long term plan- it's not cheap!
Aug 28, 2017
Helen et.al. are the bomb!!! The best KOA ever. The Fri. thru Sun breakfast in the Cook Shack is fantastic. Clean, friendly and very efficient. The store is well stocked and bath/showers clean. Loved this place and will be back.
