Campground Reviews

Very clean and scenic park! Lovely mountain views. This was a nice place to camp and drive to nearby beautiful areas. Will be back again when the shutdown is over.

Buena Vista KOA needs to get their sewer system repaired.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our septic pump guy was able to get out today (June 25) and found that someone had put rocks into our dump station. Not enough to completely block it but enough to make dumping an issue (solids and debris would get hung up).

First to stay at their new deluxe patio site. Beautiful views! The staff was great as well.

We love this KOA - the staff are great and the location is awesome. This time we were a little disappointed to find the Cook Shack closed (which is not mentioned on their website) and also the Go Karts were "out of order". This is why I'm rating it 4 star instead of 5 - otherwise we had a great time and will return for sure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The cook shack was a money loser for us last year. With the new COVID sanitary requirements it didn't make sense to open it. We are working o how to sanitize the pedal carts after use- another additional requirement we are working through.

The electric only site we were given was really, really narrow with a picnic table behind the rig and on the edge of a steep slope. No way to enjoy the outside space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have the one electric-only pull-through site, and it isn't in high demand, so we haven't focused on upgrading it.

we rented a one room cabin. The cabin was spacious and clean. The beds were pretty comfortable, loved the porch swing with the hummingbird feeder! made for a unique stay. Great views, sites were large enough to maintain social distancing. Our daughter loved the playground, and our dog loved the dog run. Little sandy however through out the campground. Best to wear sandals! we will be back!

We are a high desert environment and quite sandy. Thanks for staying with us!

What beautiful views from the campground. Nice and quiet lots of families camping. Great playground for kids and bike and hiking trails. The owners and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only negative it was dusty. We will definitely camp there again.

We are a high desert environment and have been very dry- dust happens.

Ussed stay there all the time. Is run down. Many of the things dont work. No WiFi, they used to have it now they dont. If I Ihad known that it no longer worked I would have not made reservations. .Left 3 days early because I could not take it anymore. NEVER stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have WiFi, but have been very busy and it slows down when we are crowded. I'm a bit confused, because you left at the end of your scheduled stay, not early.

It wasn't a bad place to stay just really hard to level a trailer., which didn't happen, in the spot we had anyway. I think if the pads were made of asphalt or concrete that would help. Also getting the water spigot up and off the ground would have been nice also like some other spots we saw had.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We try to add gravel and grade the sites each spring, but with COVID issues causing income loss, we didn't have the money to get it done. We'll look at the water spigot height, though.

Great time in the KOA. We enjoyed the cabin for the 4 day stay. Showers were hot and clean. The two maintenance men were working constantly and kept the place clean and in good shape.

While rustic, this KOA has all the amenities of a newer park, although with more charm. One of our party became seriously ill suddenly while we were in park. KOA team members and the owners were extremely helpful (owners both medics and took over). Directed ambulance to sight and assisted in every way possible. All turned out well with our party member thanks to the BV KOA Team.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were very happy the health issues got taken care of, and happy to help.

Stayed for a night on a tent site, love the area where I was at; able to enjoy the wall of rocks protecting my tent. Bathroom were clean however some that comes in doesn’t keep it all the way close allowing others to access. Maybe put a sign to ensure it is all the way close and secure the front door of the bathroom because men can come in to our bathroom. Scary specially at night!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll check into the bathroom door issue, thanks!

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.

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!

Nice and quiet place to relax with views of the Collegiate Mountain range. You can stay in your RV or a tent “glamping” or in a tepee! ! The owners are so nice and we like staying there on trips into Colorado.
