Had a good time everything was nice just a little close quarters.

Convenient location, friendly/courteous staff, restrooms in need of expansion/update, no noise control for guests (e.g., 4 dogs on a campsite, kids riding loud offroad motorcycle), good breakfast cafe.

Clean facilities. Easy to find. Great amenities

The campsite was clean, quiet, and beautiful..until a neighboring camper arrived after dark. They were inconsiderate, loud, and obnoxious well into the wee hours of the morning. I was surprised in the morning when I woke to find they were adults and not teenagers. While I would love to say my stay was five stars, the rudeness of these campers makes me not want to return.

The breakfast burrito was so awesome. Bathrooms could have been kept a little cleaner

On a busy weekend when the campground is full and it's rainy it is difficult to keep the sand out of the bathrooms, even with cleaning them three times a day.

Wonderful Owners & great, responsive staff! Terrific campground just a short 5 minute drive into Buena Vista. We stayed in one of the cabins, which was very clean & tidy. My daughter, son-in-law & grandkids were in their 5th wheel & other friends "tented it" in one of the tent sites that was fabulous! Nice shower facilities & a great stay overall! Highly recommended!!!

Other than needing to trim trees for larger rigs in the long sites, it was fine. Great location for everything in the valley. Fantastic staff. Definitely would stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had trimmed the trees at the start of the season, and we'll get them trimmed up some more. Thanks!

It would be a 5 if we were tent camping. They have awesome tent spots with incredible views and lots of privacy from giant boulders. The restrooms were nice, the staff were very nice. We now have a 2016 45' motorhome, the driveway is a bit rough getting in and they don't have the new KOA upgraded sites yet. Perfect location for ATV's and our jeep, fantastic trails.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The road up to the big sign is county maintained, we are working on our interior roads as much as we can. We've had very little demand for the patio sites, and don't see the need to spend the money to create them.

We love coming to the Buena Vista KOA. The location is beautiful. So many KOA's look like parking lots, but this one does not. One thing to note.. The sign on the restrooms says they will be closed for cleaning from 11 to 1 each day. On Saturday, they restroom was still closed for cleaning at 2:30. Disappointing. Otherwise a great place to camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the late cleaning that day but we were understaffed, and got it finished as quick as we could.

Staff was very nice. Facilities were clean, water always hot so nice after a long day in the mountains. Wifi was terrible. Wanted to use it for work and it was down most of the time. Was disappointed that I could not get re-reimbursed after having checked out. I needed to leave 2 days early and I had to sit on my payment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our busiest time of the year, wifi is an issue. We have been full most nights, with so many people on the property using it at the same time. We do not do refunds for early check outs, rain checks only.

I felt the tent cabin was not safe for a single woman to sleep in because it had no security lock and there was a gaping window. I ended up sleeping in my car. I wish the lack of security would have been made clear in the description of the unit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are replacing the canvas walls on the tent cabin this off season. The description and photo's clearly show it has canvas walls- so it is as safe as any tent.

Morning desk attendant was not cheery and smiling and kind like the afternoon checkin lady. When asked about trash (since the dumpsters were locked) she responded to use the yellow barrels. And said this rudely, like we should know. But we didn't see this written in any of the info. We did like the extra parking they have for trailers The pull thrus are nice and long, but not very level.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had to lock our dumpsters to prevent non guests from coming in and filling them. At checkin we make sure to tell all guests that trash goes in the yellow barrels around the campground.

Like past stays at this KOA, this stay was excellent. The staff is very hard working and friendly. The grounds are well kept. The bathrooms were functional and clean. The ice cream social was great fun and all the fees go to charity.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay!

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.

Great campground,friendly workers,great views.Internet reception was week

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.

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!

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.
