The major complaint we have is the quiet hours were not enforced.The 2nd night the people in the site next to us were not talked to until about 10:30 and then they were still noisy for about another 10 minutes. the 3rd night they were not talked to until about 11:30. They were sitting right next to where our bed was. In addition the sites are way too close to each other.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do ask people to be quiet after 10pm, but we do not tell them they have to go to bed. If you are being disturbed please contact the managers number after hours so we can address it.

Great location, close to town, easy access from HIGHWAY. We biked, rode horses, and did a full day river trip. Bathrooms are clean, grounds are well maintained. Lots of room between RV sites.

The place is serine! We stayed in a cabin and it was a great accommodation for the amount we paid. Love the mountain view and the owner is very nice!

I have stayed here before, a few years back. The grounds are NOT kept up. Buy some Roundup and spray it on the weeds. Especially in the playground area! Kids don't like getting goat heads in their socks. One of the persons in the office was very rude to my wife when she asked a question about trash dumpster. Your rules ask us to throw trash in the barrels, you need to empty those barrels often!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do spray weed control and use propane burners- but with a wet spring weeds grow quick. Edit- I checked the playground, no goat heads in it but they are in the flood wash near the playground. We empty the trash barrels several times a day, we don't have the staff to empty them more often.

I was very happy with my stay, It is in a good location close to Salida, Buena Vista , Leadville and not too far from Aspen. The staff were very friendly and, in my case quite, helpful.

Tried to reserve a tent site with electric and was told they had no site like that arrived was told the same thing once again but after. Setting up I found the next site with electric checked back in and the site was available it was to late to change

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have one tent site that has water and electric on it, not sure why my staff member wasn't able to figure that out.

The owners were terrible. Starting with a mutual miscommunication about a reservation and leading into arguments, profane language and multiple threats to kick us out of camp for no reason. Terrible owners. We were in Buena vista for father daughter camping trip and the owners convinced me never to stay at another KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you pull in a day early after hours and take another guests site- which you admitted doing- and then give us attitude about moving to the spot you reserved, and argued about our rules, you are lucky we let you stay. The only reason was to not disappoint your daughters. I'm sure my fellow owners will be glad to hear you won't be darkening any of our doors in the future.

First time at a KOA. Will be back. The staff are super friendly, helpful and will go above and beyond to help everyone.

It was nice except the cabin had no a/c and it was extremely hot just a simple a/c would have been nice...we had to leave our windows open and the screen was broken allowing flying bugs to get in...the actual showers were clean but when you stepped out of the shower there was a lot of hair on the floor...overall the view was great and the cabin itself was clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Generally we don't need AC here in the mountains, the cabins get warm during the day when closed up between guests. We'll keep an eye on the bathroom floors.

People are friendly. Spaces are close to each other and we drank bottle water due to the taste of the water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well, we do treat the water for hardness and it doesn't taste great, but it is safe to drink.

Love the place, it could use a pool but they dont seem common in this area. Staff was great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are at 8000 feet elevation in a high desert, with a limited water supply. Only pools in the area are indoors or at the hot springs.

It was a crowded weekend ( but what isn’t nowadays in Colorado) Store was stocked, pizza was great, sites were clean, bathrooms were clean, water was warm in showers.

Reservations via phone was a breeze. The staff was very helpful and 100% professional. When we arrived, the greeting was super. We got to our site and had a great time. The cook shack prepared a reasonable breakfast the next day with friendly staff. A very well maintained site. I noticed how well the staff cleaned camping sites after each guest left. The area was well run. A+ experience.

Limited to NO INTERNET. nO pool, very dIssasitified. but you pay for what you get .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not have a pool, we are at 8037 feet in a high desert environment- and we don't claim to have one. Our internet does get bogged down when the campground is busy- which it is in July.

Hosts were pleasant and accommodating when we arrived unplanned and with engine probs. The grounds and sites are nice.

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.
