Owner and hired help were very polite yet firm in following the rules. The rules are for and make the park a better place. Love the setting, sage brush etc. Is a desirable place to stay and enjoy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay, our rules are based on respecting all our guests to ensure everyone has a great stay.

Overpriced dust bowl, views are good but office staff not very helpful. Would not stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry we were unable to escort you to the site when you arrived two hours early, we had one person in the office and the rest of the staff was cleaning sites and bathrooms. Thanks for not returning!

It was a very clean and quiet campground. The people were friendly and it is just a short drive into town. We drove to the Sand Dunes because they were only a little over an hour away.

Paid for a site with complete hookups. The sewer inlet was at least 8 inches higher than my discharge. I had to use the dump station to avoid spilling sewage. I should have saved some money and signed up for a site with just water and electricity.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will dig that up and adjust the height in our off season- digging up sites is difficult when there are lots of guests around. For that particular site you are the first one to complain since we added sewer to it this spring.

Convenient location for the sports around Buena Vista. Nice staff But the sites could use some TLC

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Had a wet spring, and its tough to keep up cutting the grass and weeds.
Jun 30, 2019
Was there 5 days and was great . Peaceful and host was very helpful with my problem on my camper. Didn’t get a chance to thank him. Camp ground was kept very clean. The working people were very nice. As campers left their space the workers were on top to ready that space for the next camper. The store was very well stocked foe any items that a person might need. The week end breakfast great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to help out!

Lack of attention to the facilities. Dog park door doesn't latch and rock needed to prevent small dogs from escaping. Tree in dog park hanging down in face of medium dogs. Dogs like grass not burr weeds. Fire rings need attention. Picnic tables need upgraded. Maintenance staff seems under staffed. Roads could use gravel to reduce dust from dirt & sand. Hillside sites cramped for space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about that. Working on repairing the dog park gate, we've fixed it several times this year. In the high desert, grass doesn't grow very well and we don't have the water to grow it. Staffing has been an issue- every business in town has a help wanted sign out.

Very nice area. It was very quiet. The facilities were very clean.

Helpful staff Bathrooms. Old, deteriorating. Uninviting. Clean Fans and events full of dust. Store. Very well stocked with gear and food. Offered pizza which was delivered by staff to your site. Very tasty. Propane available on site. Dump station.clean. Has great potential.

Bathroom updates are on our long term plans.

The staff are terrific, the property is immaculate and the views of the Presidential Peaks are fabulous. Great lot to store RV if you need to. Our only issue was poor water pressure at top of the hill and nonexistent WIFI though Verizon cell service was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wifi is tough, we have limited bandwidth available. Top of the hill the water is furthest from the well, and when the campground is busy water pressure drops.

Our veiw to the collegiates was awesome. The facilities were clean. The staff very helpful, courteous, and kind. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank You!
Jun 26, 2019
This would be a 5 star location except for the very low water pressure at our sight and the WiFi that I was unable to connect with.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Highest location in the park, furthest from the well, at busy times water pressure is an issue. We have limited bandwidth coming into the park for wifi, when busy the system gets overwhelmed.

So impressed with all your amenities and the variety of ways to camp!

From the time of booking until we left, the experience was AMAZING!!! From the wonderful staff making breakfast to the views! The bathrooms were clean, the campground was clean. We loved it and will be back! This was our maiden voyage in our new camper and it did not disappointment. Thank you KOA Buena Vista!!

Great site B10 (driver slide looking at rock hill-not another camper). Close to activities and town. Far enough off the road there was no road noise.

love the folks who own/mange this campground. They are so great to work with. We are returning in July and this will be out third stay this year. That's how much we like the campground and the folks managing it!

My rating is based on the most amazing pancakes ever! The owners were friendly and accommodating. The campgrounds are clean and nicely manicured. They have a rustic feel which adds to the location and feel of the area. KOA - don't change it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We won't!
Jun 24, 2019
Very clean park. Owners are helpful and engaged in the park. Cold shower in the new bathhouse.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were very busy and I think the number of showers overwhelmed the water heater.

We've camped at BV KOA every summer for several years and have always enjoyed our stay. We had to cut our stay short this year because of a serious medical emergency. Dominic, owner of the KOA, was so caring and accommodating in helping us get our trailer back to Denver. Great guy, great KOA. We'll be back next summer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we could help!

No water pressure, toilets did not flush, sites not level, lots of dirt.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Furthest point away from the well leads to low water pressure on a full campground. Toilets flush if you push the lever and hold them for a second or two. We are working on leveling and adding gravel to the sites, but the wet spring impacted what we could get down before busy season.

Awesome views, great location. WiFi hit or miss. More miss and non existence Had fire ants and could put downs gravel instead of dirt. Regular bathrooms ok. Nicer bathrooms further away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wifi is tough when we are busy, and we are in the mountains. We try to keep up on the ants, but it's a never ending battle. Putting additional gravel down as the budget allows.

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.
