This was a nicely designed campground with great views. The 3x I used the single use restrooms they were filthy. I cleaned the bathroom before using them. There were signs that they hadn’t been thoroughly cleaned in quite some time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an extremely busy weekend and it was difficult to keep up with cleaning.

I had a quick overnight stay in Kabin 06 before leaving early to hike the next morning. Overall it was pleasant but the curtains over the table in the front room need washing and the fan was incredibly noisy. Intermittent, but annoying enough that I ended up switching it off. Have stayed before and will stay again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll check on the curtains and the fan, thanks for letting us know!

Check in was easy but no explanation by agent if explanation of amenities of was needed.Bathrooms were clean,although 2/3 showers had no hot water. Discovered after 2 days there were other showers w/hot water.Owner said "couplings on the hot water heaters may be bad."Blew fuse in glamping tent after dark 1st night...maintenance had to reset.Was told one outlet was bad. Never fixed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We said the shower's might have an issue, some folks have claimed it but others haven't. The glamping tent really doesn't have the power to run your portable cooler, the space heater on full power, plus charge your phones and run your cpap all at the same time. The outlets were not bad.

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.

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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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

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.

Great stay. Bathrooms were a little dirty at times. But staff very friendly and accommodating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were very busy and it can be tough to keep up with the bathrooms; we'll try harder.

The staff was amazing and accommodating when we asked to upgrade to a Kabin for our stay. the Kabin was very clean and even smelled clean when we arrived, which is critical in this day and age. The only reason we do not give it a 5 was the restrooms, and the groundskeeping is in dire need of an upgrade. Great location, and a great little get away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our restrooms are old, and need an update, it's a long term plan since it won't be cheap. With COVID opening delays we haven't been able to bring in staff and get grounds spruced up.

Great stay. Clean campground and laid back staff that's easy to work with.

Cabin was just as advertised. Worked perfect. Because of COVID did not use the playground, looked good. Staff placed us very close to the restrooms, which is what we had requested. Pizza delicious and convenient. Only issues other campers not following rules. Campers w/fire, stage 2 restriction. Campers using playground. Hard to explain to granddaughter she couldn't, governor's orders.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We spoke to the few campers who lit wood fires- there was only one. Other campers were using propane fire rings, which are allowed. We had explained that while we had put up tape to block the playground, none of us were going to yell at kids who went in to use it.

Very friendly staff. We would have liked more space between other campers if possible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some of our sites are tight, others have more space- moving utilities isn't easy! Thanks for staying!

It has been very interesting experiencing the different KOAs in ten states. Each have their unique qualities but the Mountain View here was incredible. We had a comfortable sleepover in a basic cabin in 20 degrees. Extra kudos to campground manager who replied to our call of distress when the fuse blew. He arrived immediately to set it to rights! Thank you!

The views in Buena Vista are extraordinary. The owners of the KOA were friendly, helpful and great folks. Our cabin was adorable and we were very comfortable. The KOA store had almost everything imaginable form RV supplies, camp supplies, food and great collector items (t-shirts, stickers, etc.) I've never seen such a well stocked store. Laundry and rec room a plus.

The Buena Vista KOA is very nice. We liked the cabin but it could have been a little cleaner especially under the beds. The bathrooms could have been a little cleaner too. The fan in the ladies bathroom was in need of cleaning and had lots of dust on it. Yuck! We thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. The ice cream fun raiser is a great idea and the food was good and store well stocked

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have taken the fans down and cleaned the dust- we'll remind our staff about cleaning under the beds. Glad we made your stay enjoyable.

The cabin was extremely hot and was very difficult to sleep in due to the heat. We left 1 day early because it was very uncomfortable. The men's room had disturbing comments etched into the stall doors, needs to be painted over.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have painted the men's room stall doors, we needed a quite day with less use for the paint to dry.

Due to RV engine trouble, had to cancel RV site and was able to reserve a cabin. Unfortunately, the west exposure had full sun all day. Inside was same if not hotter than the sunny day. Too hot! Went to a motel room in town. The manager stated "no refunds". My stay was over $300. I did ultimately get partial refund. I wish it was different, but cabins are also farthest from showers/bathrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were complaining when you arrived that there wasn't parking right in front of the bathrooms, but on the other side of our main building. Western exposure also gives the best views of the mountains.

We loved our two night stay here. The grounds were well cared for. This KOA is more rustic than some, but we loved that about it. Absolutely gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. Lots of amenities like a playground for kids, off leash dog park, and Saturday night ice cream social. We had one of the newer spots on the hill to the right of registration. You're far enough from the highway and town that the stars are incredible at night. We'll be back again soon!

Great stay, great view, nice bathrooms with showers! Only issue was there were stickers/thorns on the ground that got stuck all over our flip flops. Make sure to wear shoes!
