All good. Great spot in rugged southwestern style. Men's facility (at least the one near the office) could use a rebuild/upgrade, but usable for now.

Bathroom remodel is on our to-do list- it's not cheap!

Amazing views and the best price in town. Only 17 minutes to the Cottonwood Hot Springs.

This was our 3rd Labor Day @ the KOA Buena Vista. It's always great! Staff is very friendly. Our boys loved Ice Cream & Root Beer Float Nights!

Nothing fancy, but adequate sites. No trees to speak of. Beautiful views. Quiet. We didn't use any of the amenities like the store or shower. Staff was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees don't grow very well in our high desert environment.

almost 2x the price of other campgrounds for rvs. Too expensive, $60 a night is like $1800 a month for a spot in the dirt! Seems high I think they need more reasonable rates.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced competitively with the other full service campgrounds in Buena Vista.

Beautiful campground. It would be better if gravel were spread in the driveways. Sites are very unlevel, but that is to be expected because of the nature of the location of this campground. We've stayed here many times in the past.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on grading the sites- but during the busy summer we cant do a lot of grading without disturbing guests on site.

The campground is nice and enjoyable. You can tell some areas, especially the bathrooms are getting worn down after a long summer. The men's restroom faucet on the far right has a hole in the metal like I have never seen before. It looks like an acid cleaner ate away at the metal over time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's on our list of things to repair!

Had a local group event held here and it was amazing! Staff friendly and helpful for anything you need, camp was clean and well maintained!

This is a very nice and well maintained campground. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest ever. This is my second trip there and I will go back.

The informational sheet printed up that is given to all people who stay at the KOA showed a Wifi network name that did not exist. The network that DID exist would not work for me. I called the front desk and the young woman working there did not offer any help for this problem! Amazing. However, staff were helpful when I had issues with connecting my electric service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an issue with our wifi hardware and changed the network name. koacamperwifi became koacamper. We also suggested you try connecting outside your camper, as the metal walls interfere with the signal, but you declined.

The washing machines didn't work and the staff wasn't willing to give us a refund. Our space was not level at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have new washing machines installed this spring and they work fine. If you open them once they are running they will turn off, and we have signs over the machines warning about that.

When I called to check on availability and then called back the same day to make a reservation, the owner/woman I spoke to was awesome! She was very friendly and very helpful and funny. And to top it all off, the views from every direction were fantastic and the Wi-Fi was working.

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

IT WAS VERY NICE - Close to area activities, beautiful place to stay, lots of activities at the site as well. Sites not too close together, which is nice. Loved the breakfast and interaction with the other campers.

Great customer service. Camp breakfast was amazing! Pros: close to Buena Vista and Salida. Large camp sites. Very tent friendly. Decent game room. Cons: Very little shade, sandy non level sites, NO POOL, outdated restrooms/ low water pressure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. We are in a high desert environment- trees grow very slowly. There are no outdoor pools in the area (except at the hot springs) due to evaporation and heating. Restroom upgrades are in our future plans, but need to save up more money.

After a hard day of driving, found this KOA by accident. What an amazing place. The view from our campsite was spectacular! Very close to the Arkansas River and the fun towns of Salida and Buena Vista. Loved it so much we stayed an extra day (would have stayed another, but our site had been previously booked.)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you found us!

Helen et.al. are the bomb!!! The best KOA ever. The Fri. thru Sun breakfast in the Cook Shack is fantastic. Clean, friendly and very efficient. The store is well stocked and bath/showers clean. Loved this place and will be back.

The hosts are all terrific here and the setting is beautiful. Our only negative feedback is the sites are a little too close for comfort (and privacy). But hey, we enjoy meeting new people. Thanks, had a good stay!

The location is very nice that's the team that work there it's look like they need any favors it's actually talk to you did not feel comfortable with them at all I won't come back there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Really confused by your comment- are you saying the staff wasn't friendly or approachable?

OMG! Terrible terrible terrible! We went 20hrs with electricity and when I asked Helen, one of the owners, she yelled at me! I reviewed them on their personal fb site and the husband claimed I called his wife a "dumb f'ing whore"!!! I don't even use words like that! How can you allow people to treat your customers that way? I loved this place last year but now I'll never go back.

Thank you for not returning!
