The campground is relatively primitive with dirt roads and eneven sites. Water pressure was good and no problems with 50 amp electric. Glad it didn’t rain or we would have been in a mud hole.

We have been extremely dry this year, getting a good grade it tough with dry soil in the high desert.

It was just an over night stay and the owners were very accommodating in finding me a spot at the last minute. Nice sites, nice people and nice location.

Had a great stay at this KOA. Owners were great. Found out that they used to live in the next town from us in New Hampshire. The breakfasts at the cook shack were great. WARNING do not order 2 pancakes!!!! The biggest pancakes I have ever seen. Thanks Don and Helen for a great 2 weeks. Tom and Cindy.

We were initially put in an occupied site. In the site we were finally assigned, the water pressure was very low. We had to run our pump to take a shower. Power seems to be only 30 amp instead of 50 amp for most big rigs. It was hot and would have been nice to be able to run both a/c units. They need to upgrade both water and electric systems if they want to be up to KOA standards.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, the person in the original site went out for the day and failed to let the office know they wanted to stay another night. This past off season we doubled our number of 50 amp full hook up sites, but you didn't book one in your online reservation, and they were all full when you arrived. We are working on our periodic water pressure issues in the upper sites.

Everybody was very nice. I loved the hiking trail that bordered the KOA.

The owners Helen and Dom were wonderful! We also had a great campsite. The only draw back was internet service. It was very sketchy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the wifi- we have limited choices to get internet into the park- it's about the best we can get.

Nice place if you enjoy being in a gravel pit/dust bowl. Pull-through sites near the entrance are inundated with dust from passing vehicles which do not adhere to the 7.5 MPH speed limit...can't enjoy opening windows/sitting outside for the dust. Staff was very friendly at check-in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do spray the roads to keep the dust down, but we do it early in the week when it's quieter on the property.

Blame it on the drought, but there is nothing but dirt. They seem to try, but with no water, what can they do? The staff was nice and the camp store was well stocked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a high desert environment, with a limited water allocation. We try to wet the roads to keep dust down, but not much is helping this year.

this KOA is a perfect location for enjoying the national forest and Buena Vista. Buena Vista is amazing. KOA staff is always willing to assist. Campground is clean and lots of different services and activities. we’re heading back to KOA and Buena Vista next week.

Every camp site was dirt otherwise beautiful location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a campground- and we have lots of water, electric and sewer lines running under the sites and roads. Paving isn't an option.
Jun 05, 2018
Great location with incredible views (make sure you book a site higher on the hill). The owner and staff were super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return! Bonus if you are a mountain biker... some of Buena Vista's best trails begin/end right at this campground!

Nice and clean. The dirt dust was annoying but that was mother nature and not the facility's doing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!

Staff was friendly and welcoming. Issue that prevented 5-star was that water stopped running Saturday evening - issue with their well. Wasn't offered a prorated fee based on water that I paid to have.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You didn't mention the water issue until Sunday when you were leaving and we worked on it right away.
Jun 04, 2018
Great place, hope they upgrade the crawling wifi speeds soon though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have extremely limited options for wifi providers- one, and we have as much bandwidth as they can provide. Enjoy the mountains- if you want fast wifi stay in the cities.
Jun 04, 2018
Owner went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. Super guy. Couldn’t have been nicer

We stayed in spot P-6 loved it. Very clean. The store is the best stocked I've seen in a KOA. Lots on RV stuff if you have troubles. The staff was great. Fire wood delivery is a plus.

One of our favorite spots to camp, and our summer would be incomplete if we didn't stay at least 2-3 times. Dom & Helen have really made this a nice campground, and it is always a pleasure to chat with them & catch up on life!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking forward to your next visit!

Two negatives: The water doesn't taste very good and it's quite dusty. Other than that, there have been a number of notable improvements since last year. We like staying here and will likely return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on our dust control, and looking into the water taste (it's testing perfectly safe).

Owners were great folks and very friendly. Stayed in slot P72 with a 44 foot 5th Wheel Toy Trailer. Had room to spare even with the rear patio open. Great wide sites. Campground is adjacent to BLM lands with great hiking and views. Already booked anougher stay.

Glad to have you back!

All the staff were very friendly and kept the facilities in clean order. The camp site was nicely raked/even, ready for us when we arrived. The store has many essentials that one may forget to bring. The ice cream socials are an event we look forward to each time we visit.

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back soon!

We loved our spot!! Really quiet. Campground was well maintained, staff was friendly. View indeed was great. The new bathrooms were very comfortable, but people only wanting to use the toilets had to wait a long time while someone was taking a shower

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the wait. We do have our "standard" bathrooms with separate toilets and showers available in our main building if the lines are too long at the family style bath house.

The scenery was beautiful and the grounds well kept. What made our stay over the top was Dom and Helen. They made us feel welcomed and at home. This attitude was also exhibited by their staff. Several times I passed a staff member. They either waved or asked if I needed anything. When I'm in the Buena Vista area, I know where I'll be staying.
