We arrived late and left very early, thank you for leaving our info for us so we could easily make a quick stop without being there during hours when it is staffed. I wish someone was around to tell the folks in the cabin next to us what quiet hours were but we let them know so we could sleep! Nice facilities.

We do have a night emergency number on the map, so if someone is loud after hours we can come up and quiet them down!

Nice folks, good location and a clean campground! The coyotes singing at night were fun to drift off to sleep with and there were elk bugling around as well.

Glad you enjoyed the wildlife!

great hosts! My kids loved the game room. And the lovely way they were treated and respected by the hosts and allowed to borrow the pucks and balls on their own. We loved to trail access. Thanks for having us!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a great stay- your kids were very well behaved, be proud!

Had a great time. Plenty of activities to do and site was clean. Bathrooms may need some work but also it's near the end of the season

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Doing a complete bathroom remodel is an expensive proposition. We do our best to keep them clean.

Great service. Power outage created some complications, but was resolved well. All in all, a great place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Luckily we were able to get it fixed quickly, thanks for your patience!

Beautiful location, nice layout...but the men's restroom/showers was very dirty...staff was very nice and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On busy days it's tough to keep up with the mess in the bathrooms!

Not really clean... but staff was helpful.

During our busiest time of year it is difficult to keep ahead of the mess.

It was a lovely time at the KOA in Buena Vista. The views were spectacular. The air was crisp. Beautiful mountain ranges as far as the eye could see. Friendly faces added to the welcoming retreat. Easily accessible campsites and amenities. A playground for the children so they can burn some of that energy. Only thing I didn't like was the horrible cell reception. Otherwise would have been perfect.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Verizon and AT&T are the cell providers that work best in the area, but they have dead zones, and the infrastructure has trouble with the summer crowds.

Clean, easy to navigate, quiet, great location, what’s not to like?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay!

Nice plots, tremendous views, well maintained facilities. Everything we needed for a good hiking basecamp. The staff was very kind and it was great to have some amenities to come back to after hiking each day. Also very close to Buena Vista, so it was easy access to anything else we needed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank You!

Very clean, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings. I arrived to the campground past dinner time so by the time I set up the tent, it was a bit late to start looking for a place to eat in town. Lucky for me, they sell pizza and even deliver it to your tent site. Bonus!!! So instead of spending an hour driving around to find a place to eat, eating and driving back, I spent it watching the moonrise

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your pizza!

We rented the TeePee at KOA Buena Vista for the night of 8/17/2019. Walked into the TeePee to see dust and a bunch of roaches and bugs on the bunk beds. Asked them about it and they unapologetically made us wait 30+ minutes to send someone to ‘clean’ it. After the person is done, still was dust & bad smell left on the beds. We bought cleaning products and cleaned ourselves.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our employee did get up to the teepee and clean it as quick as he could. It hadn't been rented and used in several days, bugs do come in through the ceiling opening.

Beautifully located with impressive view on Collegiate Peaks. Bathroom facilities: far too few for the size of the campground and the number of tent sites; bathrooms near Office out of date; the new bathrooms suffered from water pressure problems. I have read this feedback from other visitors; please do not comment on this feedback but act. Your campground deserves better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying. Bathroom remodeling is a $75k+ project.

Beautiful, clean campground with friendly, helpful staff and management. As a solo traveler at times, I want to feel safe. The campground does a patrol and management can be called if there are concerns / issues. I very much appreciate that. That said, the campers with whom I have connected have been very friendly. This is one of my favorite campgrounds!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay, be happy to have you stay again!

Beautiful location. Easy to find. There were hummingbird feeders everywhere so lots of the flying gems too.

Glad you enjoyed the birds, we do too!

The bathroom door was partially broken and it was a nightmare too open and the bathroom was disgusting. The campsite does not apply quite hours and I was stuck btw, rude and inconsiderate people. I will never recomend or stay there ever again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, the sudden monsoon rains have swollen the door making it tough to open. We have been full every night, difficult to remove doors for repair and keep up with bathroom use. You did mention (at 10am) that the next site got up to leave between 6 and 7 am, which really isn't a quiet hours violation we can fix.

We love the proximity to Mt Princeton Hot Springs. Tent, RV, camping options are helpful. Would love to try the pancake breakfast sometime and enjoyed the pizza option. Great spot! Great view!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do a cooked to order breakfast Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings.

The stay was fine. However the female owner was hostile and rude both on the phone and in person. While booking my stay she paused during our conversation to yell at customers shopping in the camp store. She was super rude while I was doing laundry too. She seems like she is not happy and was not a good "host"

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- some campers let their children run loose in the store, and we'd rather not have merchandise damaged.

Great campsites and views! Prices in the store are reasonable. Love the events they have for guests. We enjoyed the pizza delivery and ice cream social. Great place to stay! Owners are so nice!

I have stayed here before, a few years back. The grounds are NOT kept up. Buy some Roundup and spray it on the weeds. Especially in the playground area! Kids don't like getting goat heads in their socks. One of the persons in the office was very rude to my wife when she asked a question about trash dumpster. Your rules ask us to throw trash in the barrels, you need to empty those barrels often!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do spray weed control and use propane burners- but with a wet spring weeds grow quick. Edit- I checked the playground, no goat heads in it but they are in the flood wash near the playground. We empty the trash barrels several times a day, we don't have the staff to empty them more often.

Tried to reserve a tent site with electric and was told they had no site like that arrived was told the same thing once again but after. Setting up I found the next site with electric checked back in and the site was available it was to late to change

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have one tent site that has water and electric on it, not sure why my staff member wasn't able to figure that out.

The people were lovely and there were fun things to do right on site.

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.
