This is great campground with some really nice views of the mountains. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. It's a quick drive to Buena Vista as well as the Princeton Hot Springs. Pizza Night was big hit!

We reserved Kabin #1 for one night. The Kabin had a great view and comfortable beds. The bathrooms in the Kampground were clean and had good lighting at night. The Kampground was quiet and well-maintained. The staff was friendly at check-in and check-out.

Came in and saw a double rainbow as we checked in! That was a good omen for our stay. Enjoyed the place and the location. We will return since we try to climb 14ers in the area fairly regularly.

Great tent site, hot very clean showers, clean washrooms. Sat under the stars and a full moon listening to coyotes or wolves! It does not get much better than that.

I was part of the organizing committee for the FJ Cruiser RoundUp, your facility was perfect for our event. Thank you for hosting us!

We were glad to have your group!

Way too expensive for a simple tent camping. Overpriced for what you get. Paying close to $50 per night to camp in the tent is a rip off in my opinion. Other than that, it is another camping spot.

Thanks for staying with us- feel free not to return!

Nice campground in a good location with good views. The only negative is that the campsites are pretty close together without many trees to help separate.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees grow very slowly in the high desert...

The night we check we were told there is only one bath house, in the one working bath house out of 3 shows 1 was missing a show head and there was no rush to fix it. We decided to leave 2 days early and there is no refund, why is every KOA different? We stayed at the Yankton KOA and one night the had bad weather and we got a Hotel (full Credit) and KOA Colorado Spring charge $10 fee for cancel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The night you checked in our second bath house had a broken electric service, which was repaired the next day. No one told us about the broken shower head until the next day, when it was replaced within 10 minutes. We offered you a rain check for another stay, but you stormed out.

Tenters want to set up in the grass which we were rather rudely told we could not. Had to pound pegs into very hard ground it what was barely enough room to park. Deep pea gravel is dangerous for motorcycles. One day a Harley rider with $ 10,000 paint job is gonna fall over. Then your problems will be magnified 100 times over. Just sayin'.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Grass doesn't grow well in a high desert environment, and we don't have much here. We do have wooden blocks at the office to put under your kickstands for parking. If you drop your bike it's on you- just sayin'.

the facility was nice and well taken care of but the tent campsites are TOO CLOSE to eachother. It was very hard to sleep when your neighbor sounds like they are right next to you.

We loved being right below a small mountain that we could climb. The camp ground had lots of things for us to do, the convenient store was so cute and the pizzas smelled so delicious! Next time we will order one.

Nice and clean as always. They were cleaning the facility nonstop, even cleaning the bathroom as late as 9 o'clock at night. We walked to the campground and all the tent sites had been raked. Very pleasant staff.

We really enjoy this KOA. We love the campsites that have lovely open views, appreciate clean bathrooms, friendly hosts and staff, well stocked store and rec. space with pool table, ping pong, air hockey. This KOA had access to a very pretty hiking trail that led up to a scenic view spot. This KOA is one of my favorites with access to great hiking and activities through the area.

Nice view. Camp site was a bit far from the bath house. Only water. No electricity. Bathrooms were not always clean. Nice playroom with ping-pong table, pool table, etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have one tent site that has water and electric. On a busy weekend with afternoon showers it is very difficult to keep the bathrooms as clean as we would like.

The staff was very friendly, the facilities were clean, and our firewood was delivered quickly.

Clean, friendly, quiet. Simple campground is respectful of the beautiful surrounding area. Staff is helpful and friendly. Helen makes a mean breakfast!

Clean facilities. Easy to find. Great amenities
Aug 02, 2017
The campsite was clean, quiet, and beautiful..until a neighboring camper arrived after dark. They were inconsiderate, loud, and obnoxious well into the wee hours of the morning. I was surprised in the morning when I woke to find they were adults and not teenagers. While I would love to say my stay was five stars, the rudeness of these campers makes me not want to return.

Clean facilities. Good mountain views.

I felt the tent cabin was not safe for a single woman to sleep in because it had no security lock and there was a gaping window. I ended up sleeping in my car. I wish the lack of security would have been made clear in the description of the unit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are replacing the canvas walls on the tent cabin this off season. The description and photo's clearly show it has canvas walls- so it is as safe as any tent.

Friendly staff, great trail and beautiful views. Would recommend adding more showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a second bathhouse with bathrooms and showers. In July the campground is very busy.
Jul 27, 2017
The staff was extremely friendly, and welcoming. It is close to town with lots of things to do, hiking was from KOA grounds.one thing I did learn monsoon season is July, next time will be a different month.

Not the nicest KOA I've stay at but the bathrooms were clean and that is the most important to me. Lots of junk behind the office area making it look "low end". It also seemed like for the size of the camp, they needed more bathrooms that are closer to some of the sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a second bath house on the east side of the campground. The ledge/rock on the west side makes plumbing for another bath house difficult.
Jul 23, 2017
The staff was very congenial and supportive. We made some changes to our reservations and they we able to create the accommodations. Will return at a future date. THANKS, Buena Vista KOA!

We picked this KOA because the last time we were in BV we stayed at Chalk Creek campground, and had trouble sleeping due to being right off the highway. This KOA is tucked back away from the road a little so you don't get as much noise. Despite this, I feel it's over-priced; next time I'll stay at Collegiate Peaks and just go into BV for showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are priced quite close with the other commercial campgrounds in the area.
