Electric didn't work and the water didn't work either. The place was really rundown, the Internet didn't work, and plus the showers where $12.00 a piece. But they did have a really nice fenced in spot for your dog to run and get some exercise.

I camp about 5 to 6 times per summer/fall and rarely stay at a campground - usually find a spot off a Forest Service road all to ourselves. But on a 3 day trip in late August, I wanted a place to stay with showers near Buena Vista and had recalled many years past staying in a KOA cabin. So... More

This is my go-to campground in the Buena Vista area whether I want a weekend to relax in the mountains or to visit the surrounding areas. St. Elmo's, Salida, and Buena Vista proper aren't that far away and there's so much to do in this area, the campground is just a perfect home base. There's a lot of negative reviews... More

Gravel pads, some not level, new bath houses were very nice, loved the view of the mountains from our site. We had access to the cook shack for out group to meet for meals really helped when the mountain showers appeared every evening. Would recommend it for anyone who wants a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of... More

Must be honest. Read review after negative review about this KOA. We came VERY CLOSE, to canceling because of the negative reviews from 2012, 2013 and early 2014. However we noted a positive swing in the ratings after July 2014, that's because of an ownership change. They have made a number of improvements, including a new bath house and what... More

Yesterday, a reviewer posted that the Buena Vista KOA had gravel pads, no grass, and lots of weeds. That traveler must not be familiar with the climate of the Arkansas River Valley. With only 10 1/2 inches of rainfall and 40 inches of snowfall annually, the BV KOA is home to well maintained sandy gravel roads and a wide variety... More

Gravel pads, pretty weedy spots, no grass, small store, but does the trick if you just want to sleep. Beware of the ant hills on your site. we had pets, she dumped poision to kill the ants, I'm sure it's probably poisonous to animals also. They made up a charge to add more to our site, but we were tired... More

Best campground I've been to in a long time! Staff were above and beyond! Welcoming, friendly, and extremely helpful! They even cook breakfast and have a great seating area under a covered porch where our group was able to purchase giant blueberry pancakes and breakfast burritos :D Bathrooms were more like household bathrooms and showers were clean and hot.

We stayed in cabin K. It had a queen bed n a set of bunkbeds. Also electricity. A covered picnic table w a nice firepit n bench. We purchased two... More

I stayed in a tent site the first time I visited. The sites are well maintained. They even rake the area before you arrive. I'm going back in a week with my family and we're going to stay in one of the cabins which have electricity a bunk bed and a queen. Just have to provide our own sheets. Each... More
