Tent sites on a hill with great view but don't have adequate drainage should you get caught in a storm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some sites have drainage issues- but only in severe rain events- during which all sites have drainage issues.

The only thing I wish the ownership would do is enforce the quiet hours policy. Too noisy. The facilities are always clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do try to enforce quiet hours, but can't be everywhere. We don't force folks to put out fires at 10pm, but ask them to keep voices down. If someone is being loud please call the night emergency number (on the back of your site map) and we'll be right out.

This is my third years staying at KOA in Buena Vista for rafting trips. My son loves the ping pong and air hockey tables and the convenient snack shop. I enjoy the cabins and the tent sites are also nice. Definitely plan on staying at KOA in the future.

Thanks- glad to have you back!

The campground was cramped and the landscape was rocky and dry.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment.

We've stayed at this KOA several times and you just can't beat the location (there's so much to do in the area!), the grounds and the friendly staff. We are tent campers and find the sites to be very well tended and not too terribly close together. Highly recommend!

Have no complaints about the campground itself. The only one I have is about the wifi. Was hoping to get a little work done. But the wifi signal was extremely weak or non existent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on the wifi- it was the holiday weekend and we were full, so our limited bandwidth does get used up pretty quickly.

Decent, no tent pad at the tent site, had to set up on the "driveway". Neighbor's are all real close, facilities were ok. For $40 per night I expected a little more

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On holiday weekends we are a little more expensive.

This KOA site was in a great location and close to Buena Vista. The major down side for campers is the numerous amount of ants. It made sleeping and hanging out uncomfortable. For that reason I would not recommend this for campers. Otherwise it was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert environment and put down a lot of ant poison. You didn't mention the issue while you were here, we would've tried to spray the active ant hills.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were very nice although I didn't really have a chance to use too many of them. The restroom/shower area was very clean. I was camping with a tent and the place I was given to set up didn't really have a tent pad area and where it was level, there wasn't much shade. However, I know I am being very critical just because it was hot and dusty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wish we could control the weather. Most folks set up their tent in the gulch just below the site.
Jun 24, 2017
The only negative comment would be on price, $37 for a tent site is a little high. The location is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. The facilities are clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The other campgrounds in the area have showers that require guests to feed quarters- we do not. We do work hard to keep the campground nice, thanks for noticing!

Had the "honeymoon campsite"-- it overlooked the whole KOA and provided amazing views. Was a little hike from the restroom, but worth it for the privacy. No pool which was a bummer because it 90 degrees plus. But, Buena Vista, one of my fave Colorado towns was close and the ice cream cooled us off. Restrooms were a bit dated- but were clean-- which is essential for a good review from me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! There are no places with outdoor pools in the area- except the hot springs.

Friendly, well maintained and clean campground. Sleeping in a tent, it would be nice if tent sites were available further away from traffic noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our tent sites are mostly on the perimeter of the campground. On busy weekends the ones furthest from the roads are used first.

The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The facility was very nice, youvant beat the views! My kids loved the playground. The food from the Cook Shack hit the spot. We stayed in a tent cabin and it was the perfect camp spot. The rocking chair and the area beneath the tree by the picnic table and fire pit were shaded at all the necessary times. Loved it!

Glad your stay was great!

Fantastic hosts (Dom and Helen) and the campground itself is spectacularly located with views in every direction. We've stayed in lots of KOA campground over the years but this was definitely one of the best!

This was our first time camping and we didn't know what to expect. We stayed on T24, which had a direct view of the Collegiate Peaks. The site was quiet and peaceful. We brought our dog and she loved it too. Would definitely come back!

Your campground is fine but we stayed in the teepee and hated it. Our reservation said we had a deluxe tent. We are seniors and we both tripped over the threshold to the tent going in and out. If you trip going out you would either go off the platform or crash into the railing. It seems very unsafe to us and the tent really gives you no protection. It was absolutely freezing that night!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry you didn't like the teepee. We were full for Memorial Day and had no other place to move you too. And in late May at 8000 feet the weather can be chilly.

A bit pricey, I thought, for a tent site, and a little far from the bathrooms. Otherwise, it was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are price competitive with the other commercial campgrounds in the area.
