Absolutely loved everything about our stay! Everything was so easy and the owners were more than happy to brew a pot of coffee for us. We’ll be back for sure in the next couple of weeks!

Dump station was overflowing when I went to dump. Had to go to another spot to dump.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sadly, someone dropped debris into the dump station and didn't let us know. We had to get the power auger out to get it unclogged.

Love this camping spot, I've stayed here several times and the views are exceptional. The management is always accommodating and friendly, grounds are kept clean and facilities are convenient. This location is very convenient to the mountain activities.

People were very friendly and helpful. However there was an extremely strong sewage smell in the men’s bathroom and in front of the building. Hiking trails were great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been trying to figure the source of the odor- seems to be insufficient water in the urinal flush mechanism. Waiting on the parts to fix it!

Great place to camp. Great staff, beautiful views of mountains. Older but clean facilities. Only problem is low water pressure. Definitely will come back if possible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Water pressure can be an issue. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

It was a wonderful weekend. The views are gorgeous. In addition to the views the hummingbirds are all over the place and fun to watch. The hosts were very kind and knowledgeable of procedures. We will definitely be back.

wish there was some type of PAD to park on, or at least walk out onto from the coach. Wish it was like the photo above, with a nice concrete pad, a swing set, a nice table with chairs & umbrella....we had none of that, just dirt and a dirty picnic table. It had bird poop all over it....s/b cleaned before a guest checks in. The baths were CLEAN and water was hot. Staff was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All KOA's are different- not all of us have grass, not all sites are patio sites. Glad you found the restrooms clean.

It was fantastic! We had a beautiful site and the staff was great!!!!!

Compared to other fancier KOA's this one is a little rustic. That being said the whole campground is clean. Staff friendly. The setting is amazing. Not just row after row of campers. They really made use of the natural setting to spread the sites and cabins out. Want to go back.

Be glad to have you back!

Great stay. Bathrooms were a little dirty at times. But staff very friendly and accommodating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were very busy and it can be tough to keep up with the bathrooms; we'll try harder.

Nice sites not packed in like sardines. Friendly office, well stocked store! Social distancing much much Much appreciated, not so however in Buena Vista. No fires allowed����, not even to cook meals. Propane only. The water is clean and drinkable but chloriney and salty. I drank a bunch and was fine, just not the most tasty . HIGHLY reccomend this place! So much to do in this area

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do treat our water because it does have high mineral content, so it isn't very tasty- but it is safe! The fire ban is tough, too. We have been very dry this year. Thanks for staying with us!

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Buena Vista KOA. It was close to the Whitewater Rafting event we had scheduled. The staff was friendly and helpful. This was a great get a way from the Covid-19 pandemic. The bath house, camp site, and dog run areas were clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying- hope to see you another time!

I loved the campground, but would like gravel (or something) put down on the RV pads. It's just really dusty and some type of ground covering would help.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's something we try to do once we start getting extra cash in, but that's been tough this year.

The staff was amazing and accommodating when we asked to upgrade to a Kabin for our stay. the Kabin was very clean and even smelled clean when we arrived, which is critical in this day and age. The only reason we do not give it a 5 was the restrooms, and the groundskeeping is in dire need of an upgrade. Great location, and a great little get away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our restrooms are old, and need an update, it's a long term plan since it won't be cheap. With COVID opening delays we haven't been able to bring in staff and get grounds spruced up.

This visit happened due to an unexpected plan change and as it turned out, it was great! Super excited we ended up here. Nightly rate was high ($70), but staff was very friendly & helpful. Views are killer & great trails, accessed from the property, for hiking & biking.

We were meeting friends there, so it was a very nice weekend. Nice warm welcome from the management. Very helpful and friendly.We would love to see the RV sites leveled a bit more. Every one happy to be out and starting summer.

We are working on leveling as time and budget allow.

Great stay. Clean campground and laid back staff that's easy to work with.

Wonderful location and friendly staff. Clean campground. The men's bathroom needs a note for campers to hold the handle down when flushing as it is harder than a normal handle and people were leaving the toilets unflushed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll work on that!

Check in was lengthy as the staff was frazzled. There was a fire ban in place and we were not informed. Multiple people had fires going and the owner went around yelling at everyone to drown out the fires. Not a good experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were the only one who had a wood campfire- all others were using propane fire rings, which are allowed. How you missed the electronic billboard driving into the county, the orange sign on our doors, and our staff stating we were under a fire ban puzzles us.

We had a great stay, the campground was well-maintained and staff was helpful!

The campground was nice. The sites were crowded together, though that’s to be expected from KOA. It did not seem staff were very keen on enforcing rules. There was a countywide fire ban during our stay, and we were told in no uncertain terms that we could not have any open flames. But that evening multiple campers lit campfires and no one was asked to extinguish them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Propane fire rings are allowed, and that is what people were using. We had a few light firewood and we did have them put them out.

Cabin was just as advertised. Worked perfect. Because of COVID did not use the playground, looked good. Staff placed us very close to the restrooms, which is what we had requested. Pizza delicious and convenient. Only issues other campers not following rules. Campers w/fire, stage 2 restriction. Campers using playground. Hard to explain to granddaughter she couldn't, governor's orders.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We spoke to the few campers who lit wood fires- there was only one. Other campers were using propane fire rings, which are allowed. We had explained that while we had put up tape to block the playground, none of us were going to yell at kids who went in to use it.

We didn’t like the dirt around the around the campground that’s all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a high desert environment that's been abnormally dry this spring, so dust is a part of the experience.

Great for RVs and campers with all the amenities and supplies you need. Fairly dense, so lots of news, but a safe environment. Also, its the cheapest tentsite available in the town of Buena Vista for CT CDT hikers, peak baggers, etc and just 1.5 miles from the VFW bus stop out of town to Denver. In town food and shopping is a couple miles up the highway.
