Campground Reviews

Jun 30, 2019
Was there 5 days and was great . Peaceful and host was very helpful with my problem on my camper. Didn’t get a chance to thank him. Camp ground was kept very clean. The working people were very nice. As campers left their space the workers were on top to ready that space for the next camper. The store was very well stocked foe any items that a person might need. The week end breakfast great.

Lack of attention to the facilities. Dog park door doesn't latch and rock needed to prevent small dogs from escaping. Tree in dog park hanging down in face of medium dogs. Dogs like grass not burr weeds. Fire rings need attention. Picnic tables need upgraded. Maintenance staff seems under staffed. Roads could use gravel to reduce dust from dirt & sand. Hillside sites cramped for space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about that. Working on repairing the dog park gate, we've fixed it several times this year. In the high desert, grass doesn't grow very well and we don't have the water to grow it. Staffing has been an issue- every business in town has a help wanted sign out.

Our stay was good. The only issue would be the noise from other campers past the quiet times. I shouldn't have to tell them to keep it down at midnight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When I walked around at 10:15pm most guests were pretty quiet- please call our after hours number if guests are disturbing you and we'll come down and address it.

Helpful staff Bathrooms. Old, deteriorating. Uninviting. Clean Fans and events full of dust. Store. Very well stocked with gear and food. Offered pizza which was delivered by staff to your site. Very tasty. Propane available on site. Dump station.clean. Has great potential.

Bathroom updates are on our long term plans.

The staff are terrific, the property is immaculate and the views of the Presidential Peaks are fabulous. Great lot to store RV if you need to. Our only issue was poor water pressure at top of the hill and nonexistent WIFI though Verizon cell service was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wifi is tough, we have limited bandwidth available. Top of the hill the water is furthest from the well, and when the campground is busy water pressure drops.

This would be a 5 star location except for the very low water pressure at our sight and the WiFi that I was unable to connect with.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Highest location in the park, furthest from the well, at busy times water pressure is an issue. We have limited bandwidth coming into the park for wifi, when busy the system gets overwhelmed.

Great site B10 (driver slide looking at rock hill-not another camper). Close to activities and town. Far enough off the road there was no road noise.

My rating is based on the most amazing pancakes ever! The owners were friendly and accommodating. The campgrounds are clean and nicely manicured. They have a rustic feel which adds to the location and feel of the area. KOA - don't change it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We won't!

Very clean park. Owners are helpful and engaged in the park. Cold shower in the new bathhouse.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were very busy and I think the number of showers overwhelmed the water heater.

Campground off Highway, but some areas tucked in and Great Views.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Furthest campground off the highway in the area- only 1/2 mile!

Clean facilities. Loved our secluded campsite, though had to ask to be put there as we were originally assigned a site that was VERY close to another tent side AND a cabin. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. We will for sure be back!

We've camped at BV KOA every summer for several years and have always enjoyed our stay. We had to cut our stay short this year because of a serious medical emergency. Dominic, owner of the KOA, was so caring and accommodating in helping us get our trailer back to Denver. Great guy, great KOA. We'll be back next summer.

Glad we could help!

No water pressure, toilets did not flush, sites not level, lots of dirt.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Furthest point away from the well leads to low water pressure on a full campground. Toilets flush if you push the lever and hold them for a second or two. We are working on leveling and adding gravel to the sites, but the wet spring impacted what we could get down before busy season.

Ladies at the front were a bit rushed and i had to come back to get my key. Other than that my stay was perfect.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for understanding- we had a huge group in and they wanted a ton of pizzas!

Awesome views, great location. WiFi hit or miss. More miss and non existence Had fire ants and could put downs gravel instead of dirt. Regular bathrooms ok. Nicer bathrooms further away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wifi is tough when we are busy, and we are in the mountains. We try to keep up on the ants, but it's a never ending battle. Putting additional gravel down as the budget allows.

We booked our sites for a group of 3 families over 6 months in advance and weren't put next to each other. The owners moved us which was very much appreciated, but the woman owner was pretty intense a few times. The bathrooms were very well kept, probably the best we've ever seen (and we camp a lot). We were overall very happy! The campground itself is pretty cool, we'll be back!

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.
