Got yelled at to move our 14' trailer when registering because there was NO parking and lot was full with two massive rigs. Did I mention I was sitting alone in the passenger seat with no keys to move the vehicle? Never could get Wifi. First site was terribly cramped, second site was lovely.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we were able to move you to a site you liked better. We do try to get people through the registration area as quick as we can, so they aren't blocking the roads.

We do have a second bathhouse with bathrooms and showers. In July the campground is very busy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In a rural area there is limited bandwidth available, and when we are busy it suffers.

Beautiful place and loved the area. Hookups were good. Other KOA's had access to the laundry by code anytime and this one locked up at 9:00 We are in a big rig pulling a trailer. I would like to see the sites with gravel. The fine sand on the site is hard to keep from tracking in the motor home. We would definitely stay at the Buena Vista KOA on our next trip through.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We recently had a flash flood that brought sand out of the hills, and are working on repairs.

I woke up to cedar waxwings and humming birds flitting about the juniper tree over my head.

KOA, Staff at the Buena Vista KOA were great, but I booked the room with the understanding that wifi would be available, essential for my business. It was not available either the evening we checked in, nor the entire morning after. When we went to the office several times, the staff they couldn't do anything because there "weren't enough complaints yet". Please send a refund.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No. If something is "essential for my business" why on earth would you rely on public wi-fi?
Jul 24, 2017
We had a great stay at your campground. An unexpected storm came through & your staff was great taking care of everyone & getting the campground back in shape. Great views, clean facility & campground also friendly staff. The only recommendation I would give is to fix the low water pressure in the showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been working on the water pressure, and will continue- Thanks!

We had a very nice stay. The campground is well run and maintained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Jul 23, 2017
Not the nicest KOA I've stay at but the bathrooms were clean and that is the most important to me. Lots of junk behind the office area making it look "low end". It also seemed like for the size of the camp, they needed more bathrooms that are closer to some of the sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a second bath house on the east side of the campground. The ledge/rock on the west side makes plumbing for another bath house difficult.
Jul 23, 2017
The staff was very congenial and supportive. We made some changes to our reservations and they we able to create the accommodations. Will return at a future date. THANKS, Buena Vista KOA!

We picked this KOA because the last time we were in BV we stayed at Chalk Creek campground, and had trouble sleeping due to being right off the highway. This KOA is tucked back away from the road a little so you don't get as much noise. Despite this, I feel it's over-priced; next time I'll stay at Collegiate Peaks and just go into BV for showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced quite close with the other commercial campgrounds in the area.
Jul 22, 2017
Really loved how the campground was tucked up in hills & among the rocks. Sites are scattered and for the most part aren't right on top of each other. Nice, clean showers and the people who run it/own if are so nice. During our stay, we had a flash flood rain & hail storm come thru. Made our stay memorable. The owners made repairs as quickly as possible. Would definitely stay here again!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!

Tent sites on a hill with great view but don't have adequate drainage should you get caught in a storm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some sites have drainage issues- but only in severe rain events- during which all sites have drainage issues.
Jul 22, 2017
The only thing I wish the ownership would do is enforce the quiet hours policy. Too noisy. The facilities are always clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do try to enforce quiet hours, but can't be everywhere. We don't force folks to put out fires at 10pm, but ask them to keep voices down. If someone is being loud please call the night emergency number (on the back of your site map) and we'll be right out.

Nice campground have stayed here several times

Thanks for your business!

This is my third years staying at KOA in Buena Vista for rafting trips. My son loves the ping pong and air hockey tables and the convenient snack shop. I enjoy the cabins and the tent sites are also nice. Definitely plan on staying at KOA in the future.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- glad to have you back!
Jul 20, 2017
Great location, very clean WiFi could be better, water pressure low at times. Nice staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well and it's tough to regulate the pressure at times.
Jul 20, 2017
Rugged older campground, beautiful site. Excellent biking/hiking trails right out of camp. Staff intelligent and good humored; relaxed, fun atmosphere. Stayed in w/e site 6 nights, they gave me the BEST spot against the rocks. Well run, facilities clean, store well stocked. Owners great; Dom quickly repaired roads after torrential storm washed them out. Large shade trees in some sites.

We stayed here a day after the KOA was flooded by a storm. The owners spent two long days cleaning everything up and making our stay great. Thank you!

Average KOA. Bathrooms need a little updating but showers were hot.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bathroom updates are on our longer term improvement plan, they aren't cheap.
Jul 18, 2017
The staff is helpful. The views are gorgeous! Have stayed here several times. Not one site is very level. It is dirt road into KOA and all dirt roads and sites throughout the KOA. (When it rains they have to do a lot of grading to fill in gullies.) This could be an "9+" park with paved roads and sites. It would be expensive to do and a good investment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, we aren't going to pave the park. The road into the park is a county road, which will not be paved, and we prefer a property that doesn't look like walmart. The grounds and roads and sites are criss-crossed with water, sewer and electrical lines, all of which would need to be replaced and rerouted in order to pave. Not economically feasible.
Jul 18, 2017
Only stayed in a cabin for three nights and had very heavy rain two nights and the one rain washed out the roads in the campground. The staff was very prompt to help the tent campers that had water soaked linens. They kept the store open hours past normal closing time to ad the campers in need. They started repairing the roads as soon as the rain ended.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for noticing our work, we appreciate it!

The campground was cramped and the landscape was rocky and dry.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment.
Jul 18, 2017
Campground flooded. That was OK until Dom started yelling at me, literally yelling, that I was "blocking everything" as I tried to figure out how to get in line to dump. Scared me to death so I left without waiting

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry, I was yelling because I was on top of a running diesel tractor and wasn't sure you could hear me. We were very busy trying to repair the roads.

WiFi is worthless other than that we had a good stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our busiest season, wifi performance suffers.

Had a great time, staff very friendly. Had a bad storm that came through and the staff worked to keep everything open.
