General Campground Information

TENT POLICY

In order to save our lawn, tents may only be pitched on tent pads, unless otherwise authorized by staff.  Pads measure 12 feet by 14 feet.  Tents are not allowed at RV sites or cabins.

NO 50 AMP CAMPERS AT 30 AMP SITE

WHEN CHOOSING YOUR RV SITE ONLINE, PLEASE CHOOSE A 50 AMP SITE IF YOUR CAMPER IS MANUFACTURED FOR 50 AMP. WE DO NOT ALLOW ELECTRICAL REDUCERS. ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE, IT IS ILLEGAL. THE GUEST WILL ASSUME ANY DAMAGE CAUSED, DUE TO USING ELECTRICAL REDUCERS.

PET POLICY

Your animal friends are welcome at the Buffalo KOA. We insist on the KOA official National Pet Policy. You may review the policy upon completion of your reservation. We ask that you not bring any pet(s) that exhibits aggressive or protective behaviors to our busy campground.  We ask that you do not leave your pet(s) unattended at any time and they are on a 6 foot lead whenever the animal is outside the owner's trailer, vehicle, cabin or motorhome. When dogs are outside, they must be kept on leashes at all times, unless they are inside K-9 camp.  Nobody wants to hear someone else's dog barking. Pets that incessantly bark day or night are not permitted. You are REQUIRED to pick up after your animal friends no matter where they poop on the campground, including by the creek.. Bags are provided throughout the campground. Violators of any of these policies will be asked to leave our campground without reimbursement. Pets are not allowed in our general public buildings, restrooms, laundry, pool, etc. There is an $15.00 pet cleaning fee for pets in the cabins. You are responsible for any damage that your dog causes. If you have a service dog, please let us know at time of check-in.

General Information

Our amazing Buffalo KOA staff is excited to meet you and host you for your stay in Buffalo for the 2021 camping season.
I would like to take the time to introduce you to our staff and share some information about our park that will help make your stay more enjoyable while you are here.
First, I would like to tell you that we are very proud of our staff who are helping us this season to make your stay here a great experience.  Our family owns and operates this KOA and really enjoys connecting with guests and helping them have an enjoyable time while they are in the area exploring Buffalo and the Bighorn Mountains.  There are six members of the Peoples' family working here:  Paul and Anita and their 4 daughters - Rowan, Caitlin, Alyssa and Morgan - you will likely meet at least one of us during your stay.  Alex, Emma, Keyera, Kia, Melanie and Nate round out our staff for the season.  Please let them know you appreciate their work!
Park Reminders:
We will be ready to check in daily arrivals at 1:00 p.m.  Please plan your arrival time to be no earlier than 1:00 p.m.  There will be no exceptions.  Late arrivals are not a problem.
Check out is at 11:00 a.m. Please plan departures accordingly.
Reservations are for one vehicle and one RV at each site.  If this does not represent your situation, please notify the staff.  A limited number of parking passes are available for additional cars and are $25 each.
Each site is equipped to handle one RV and one vehicle.  Please park on the pad to avoid damage to services and avoid parking on the grass.
Campground rules are enforced, so staff are expected to ask guests to slow down when they are speeding, to move improperly parked vehicles, to avoid walking through neighboring sites, to pick up after their pets, etc.  Please familiarize yourself with our campground rules, so that you and your neighbor and our staff has a safe and enjoyable experience during your stay.  
If your vehicle or RV becomes disabled in your site while camping and you cannot meet your departure plans, please alert the office as soon as possible, so we can help you connect to services and to make arrangements for the next guest who is arriving into that site.  With enough time, we can usually make things work to accommodate unforeseen breakdowns.
Our staff is young but very capable of helping to solve any issues or concerns you may have while staying with us.  We prioritize the value of both our guests and our staff.  We appreciate that when you have issues that you approach our staff with respect and kindness and expect them to partner with you to get to a solution.  This is what they are trained to do.  Our lowest points this summer, so far, have been when angry, frustrated adults have berated and cursed our young ladies to the point of tears for situations out of their control.  This is not acceptable.  If/when this happens in the future, the staff has been instructed to cancel the reservation and ask the guest to leave.  As owners, we will back up our staff in these situations.  We want everyone to have an enjoyable summer!

We have had an overwhelmingly positive summer and have made so many new friends already.  We look forward to hosting your family and getting to know you while you are here.  
Safe travels and we will see you down the road! 
Paul and Anita Peoples and the Buffalo KOA staff
