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.

Even though when I pulled in and saw it looked crowded I found my cabin to be peaceful and could spend some alone time. Staff was helpful and friendly. Bathrooms clean and kept up. I’ll be back when I need to get out of the city. Nice job!

Bathrooms need updating. Fans in the men's bathroom were caked with dust - obviously haven't been cleaned in months. Staff was friendly enough, kamping kabin was as expected but only had one electrical outlet. Not the nicest KOA I've stayed at but not the worst.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll get on the bathroom fans. Cabin has a single outlet in the front room and a double outlet in the back room.

We stayed on night prior to summiting Mt Yale. Then the following evening came Back to stay another night. The front office staff were very friendly and accommodating! We love the cabins in Buena Vista. The bathrooms were a bit unclean. But all in all we enjoy our stay and plan to come back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our busiest time of the year it's tough to keep the bathrooms as clean as we would like.

We love this campground, but this year there seemed to be a lot of very noisy dogs. One trailer had several dogs that barked for hours without stop and the site next to us had dogs that started yipping at sunrise and didn’t stop until they left. I wish there had been better enforcement of the dog rules. We leave ours at home because he’s a barker and we don’t want him disturbing others.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if there are dogs or other guests disturbing you- we aren't everywhere on the campground all the time and can't address an issue if we aren't aware of it.

A little good, a little bad! First, there was a mix up on our reservation, which I had made 2 months in advance. When I pointed out that my reservation confirmation was in conflict with what the manager was telling me, he got an attitude and told me I was wrong. Not exactly customer service oriented! The bath houses are far away. Kids wanted to play air hockey...$1 per game!! Same with ping pong!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Actually air hockey and ping pong are free, pool costs $1. You booked in early June for late July, which is our busiest time of the season, and we had told you multiple times when you called which sites we were able to get you in. The bathrooms are only far from one cabin, which is why it has an AC/fridge and microwave in it.

Yes we had a very good stay everything was clean the staff was very courteous

Other than the scenery, this KOA site is priced higher than most we have stayed in previous. It is not very clean, looks slightly dumpy. Honestly, if KOA signs not present, looks like a commune camp. Would not stay here again unless I had to. Going to try the new Shavano site next trip. They tried, but too expensive here for amenities and facilities available

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced in line with the local campgrounds.

The owners were terrible. Starting with a mutual miscommunication about a reservation and leading into arguments, profane language and multiple threats to kick us out of camp for no reason. Terrible owners. We were in Buena vista for father daughter camping trip and the owners convinced me never to stay at another KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you pull in a day early after hours and take another guests site- which you admitted doing- and then give us attitude about moving to the spot you reserved, and argued about our rules, you are lucky we let you stay. The only reason was to not disappoint your daughters. I'm sure my fellow owners will be glad to hear you won't be darkening any of our doors in the future.

It was nice except the cabin had no a/c and it was extremely hot just a simple a/c would have been nice...we had to leave our windows open and the screen was broken allowing flying bugs to get in...the actual showers were clean but when you stepped out of the shower there was a lot of hair on the floor...overall the view was great and the cabin itself was clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Generally we don't need AC here in the mountains, the cabins get warm during the day when closed up between guests. We'll keep an eye on the bathroom floors.

Really nice owners and great campsites to match the fantastic views of the Collegiate Peaks. Definitely a return visit in future. 😊

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.
