Space could have been level but was not. Ants everywhere.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do try to put down ant dust, but it's a never ending battle. You did get the only pull through we had left for that evening.

We were here last year and decided to bring our chapter of the Family Campers and RVer's this year. Thank you for the US Military discount.

Had nice site close to office. Was very busy there, and very dusty. Had nice shade trees - that was wonderful. Wish they had a pool!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are at 8000 feet elevation in a dry environment, pools just don't make sense.

Beautiful camp and great location. However, when we arrived on Saturday morning no one in the office/store was wearing a mask except us. When I asked about it the work kamper said, "If you're not bothered by it we're not." Yes, I am bothered by it. Not only is it state law it is a health risk.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is not a state law.

Good location and friendly people. What we didn't like was the dust and dirt. All roads and sites are dirt which creates an extremely dusty environment. The campground seems rather run-down although the bathrooms seemed to be well maintained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are an older campground (built in 1965) and have been upgrading as finances allow. There are too many buried utility lines to make paving practical.

Woman at the desk wasn't polite like KOA standard. Sites was dirty and I even found a used dog poop bag by my electric post . Water tastes terrible I been camping at KOA for long time and never wrote a bad review but this one needs to improve a lot to get more stars

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will work on our site cleaning, we have been short staffed. We are on a well, and the water has a very high mineral content. We do treat it, but the taste isn't great.

This campsite is really run down. Also, I just arrived and purchasing a few items, female working at registration walks over to me for no reason to tell me how someone reported her for not wearing her mask correctly. She was complaining how some people need to worry about themselves. The entire time she’s not wearing her mask correctly. Did NOT appreciate any of this

We loved it and were treated not only professionally but like we were friends. Desaree was the sweetest ever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We don't have a Desaree working at our campground, but glad you enjoyed your stay!

Campground was nice but not much room between spots.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We actually have more space between our sites than most KOA's.

Nice KOA in a pretty rural setting. Our pull through had shade and was well spaced from our neighbors. There were lovely views as well.

We had site B29 which has incredible views of the mountains! The kids enjoyed playing air hockey and ping pong. Playground is small, but enough to keep them entertained. They had an ice cream social Saturday night that we skipped, but the option was nice. Bathrooms were very clean. Great stay!

Thanks for staying with us!

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this KOA campground was. The only minus was that the camp hosts were not wearing masks.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad the campground exceeded expectations!

Nice roomy campsite (P78), great view. New hookups. Lots to do in the area, and Buena Vista has a lovely downtown area. Only thing is water tasted ‘salty’, even after filtering, so would suggest bringing your own water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are on a well with a high mineral content and soften the water, so it does have salty residue.

Friendly, beautiful area. Shower facilities didn’t have much hot water.

Please let us know if there is an issue while you are here so we can address it.

Loved the park but I think there was a septic overflow running across our location so we could not sit outside due to smell.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a constantly running toilet that overfilled a septic system, which we have fixed.

Staff was friendly. Private bathhouses had no hot water. If another bathhouse was being used, you had NO water. Regular showers had luke warm water only and showerheads that only produced a spray effect. Signs posted to "limit showers to 5 min"....SERIOUSLY?? Located right off highway and 4 miles to town. I would not stay there again for the price they charged. NO Parking signs all over.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know while you are here that something is broken, so we can address it.

Well there are some nice places to stay in the camp itself most are back in sites up towards the top. The Lots straight across from the check in have loud bathroom doors and a light that points into your campsite all night. When trying to find anything and they're shop remember they have Basics like hot dogs not hamburger and frozen dairy, not anything for people that might need non dairy. Basic

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, when you made your reservation two days in advance, the site you were in was what we had available. We normally don't stock items with short shelf lives as we'd rather not get stuck with expired merchandise. There are two grocery stores in our town.

Looking to work on it, gravel budget took a hit this spring due to being closed for covid.

We loved this location so it was worth staying at a place with the worst tasting water ever . Site was also tight and sloped but really long!

On departure morning I discovered a flat tire. The owner or Manager on site helped me get my heavy Jeep wheels changed. We were a little late leaving our site, but the Manager was flexible in allowing us the time needed to depart.

Glad to help!

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.
