RV Reviews

Second time there this summer. The owners were great and very accommodating. Even after a long busy Labor Day weekend. And they provided 12” of snow for us! � Beautiful views of the mountains. Our youngest granddaughter loves to come and stay with us while there - she loves the bikes, playground and the game room. It is our go to campground while visiting family. Thank you Dom and Helen!

Our stay was a bit unusual. We were there "riding out" the recent winter snowstorm that hit CO just after Labor Day. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Didn't really use most of their facilities with the exception of the laundry, which was great. New, big commercial machines and dryers that worked well also. Price was very reasonable. Convenient location to activities in the area.

The People are great! The area as a whole was very clean. My only issue was the grade on my spot was almost beyond the capabilities of my little pop up camper jacks for getting it level. But, we got stuff to deal with it. Spectacular views, awesome hosts and, Quiet. I’d recommend the BV KOA to anyone.

This park was easy to get in and out of with a large 5th wheel and our site had plenty of room. It’s near many destinations and there are amazing hiking and biking trails right out of the park. The staff is friendly and helpful and next time we’re in the area we will be stopping here. Thanks guys!

This campground is probably one of the prettiest to stay in in this area of the Colo mountains. The views are exquisite of the Collegian Peaks. Close to BV. The sites were not that well-kept. Several red ants hills throughout (we have 2 dogs), the sites need a little grader work (level?), bad weeds in many areas. Pleasant staff, stocked store, ran out of pizzas (bad!). But good place overall.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the pizza- late in season we try not to over order and be stuck with product.

Very friendly staff. Sorry to hear that they are possibly selling the campground. Hope new owners are as kind and friendly. Really enjoyed the ice cream social.

We have stayed at this KOA yearly for a long time now. This was the first time we were not happy. We booked with friends, put in notes to be together, called numerous times to confirm together, to find out we were moved to opposite sides of the campground and nobody was willing to help or even attempt an effort to fix the problem. End of the world,no, but not how our kids wanted to spend the holid

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do tell folks that the best way to ensure adjacent sites is to call the campground when you make reservations. Calling multiple times a few days before Labor Day weekend and expecting we will be able to move sites isn't realistic.

The setting for this campground is very beautiful. The rv sites are fairly primitive, being dirt and not level. Our site had two bent-over water pipes. A willow tree right next to the site had a branch that hung over and touch our motorhome. The men's restroom had much water on the floor and the trash can was overflowing. It didn't look like it had been cleaned for a day or two.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A guest bent the pipe earlier, we delayed straightening it out until we are less busy as we'll have to shut off several sites during repair. We have been quite busy and will focus on keeping up with restroom cleaning.

Buena vista KOA is a great campground. The owners are genuine, friendly and helpful. The location and view of the collegic peaks are breathtaking. The area offers rafting, hiking, fishing, ATV'S and more.

Excellent, except I wish you had LTE Cell Service your wifi supported streaming.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have limited internet options here, we get 25Mb/s over a radio link into the park for the guests to share. No cable or fiber options.

Nice campsite in a more private area of the campground. Bathrooms were clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. It would be nice if the dump station was open earlier than 8 am for an early departure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had people coming onto the property during off hours to dump without paying, so we lock the dump station when the office is closed.

Campground needs some TLC, a little run down. Sites 3 & 5 have the hookups on the wrong side of the site. Only KOA where I have seen this. Makes for an awkward stay because you're literally sharing the same space with your neighbor with the RV doors facing each other (will never stay in these sites again). There are great sites for tents and other sites for the RV we would consider however.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Those sites are often used by folks traveling together who wish to face each other- aka "buddy sites"

Helpful & courteous staff! Well stocked general store. Site was level and easy pull thru. The water pipe would be easier to spot if it was painted orange or cleared from grass. Tripped over it. Wish we could have stayed longer! Worth coming back on our next 2021 trip!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A guest bumped into the pipe and bent it, we've been too busy to shut down water to repair (since it isn't leaking)- it will be fixed when we quiet down!

The pull thru site was not level at all. It took a lot of wood under our tires to level the trailer. Also, the trash cans were all dumped over in the morning by some animal (I assume) and trash was everywhere. I think better care needs to be taken to avoid feeding the wildlife.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We think a bear came thru the campground. That would be the second time since 2014- so it isn't a regular occurrence.

Site was very tight. No surprise, been there many times. Campground is clean. Water pressure is bare minimum. Wifi not good which they admit. Laundry closes early

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

During the summer the laundry is open from 8am until 9pm 7 days a week, same as the office since it is attached to the office.

Front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. Full hookup site was tidy, as advertised and with great views. Facilities were extremely clean and well kept, and you could tell maintained regularly. Campground was almost full, so great to see the staff we keeping up with maintenance considering the volume of campers. Would visit again.

The sewer connection was way to high made emptying my tanks very difficult.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The lines in that section are very shallow, so we are restricted on where we can place the ports.

The lots are a little close, and the sand / gravel pads are fairly level. The best thing about this location is the Management, top notch in every way. Nice location and great views.

Nice location, but seems like this KOA is not kept up and maintained as well as it was 2 years ago.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are running the campground with half our usual staff, despite paying $1.50 over minimum wage. We are trying to keep up, but it's not easy.

Nice and quiet place to relax with views of the Collegiate Mountain range. You can stay in your RV or a tent “glamping” or in a tepee! ! The owners are so nice and we like staying there on trips into Colorado.
