Check in was prompt and courteous. Easy access from Route 24 and close to town. Buena Vista is a gorgeous place with great hiking, off roading, rafting and fishing. Views in the park are heavily dependent on location - park was very crowded and spaces are tight. We had a view of the storage yard - more like a RV bone yard. Comments on the entry road are correct. But the interior roads are just as bad. The campground needs to re-gravel the entire park. The interior roads are heavily pitted, washboard and holes. Our site was more compacted/loose dirt than gravel. There was some grass in the sites by the entrance - which looked like the season sites. Otherwise landscaping is pretty sparse. No visible security - park is accessible from two entries with no gates. Utilities were good - satellite worked even with the few trees scattered around the park. I would probably try another park in the area before coming back here. Not bad - but with more road/landscaping maintenance and proper spacing they could make this a much nicer park.

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. They meet you as you pull in and immediately take you to your site. Go check in when convenient. Lots of room for big rigs - easy to maneuver around. Got a premium site - concrete patio and fire pit - good value. Great views. Exceptionally clean. Fantastic dog kennel directly next door. About 6 miles from Canon City - Florence nearby. This area of Colorado is just beautiful. Would definitely stay here again.

Easy entrance off highway. Large, roomy spaces for big rigs. Sensational views. Hosts were helpful. Gravel spaces - could use a bit of weeding here and there but adds to the more rural setting. Utilities worked great. A few full timers, but no problems. Easy access to Taos from the north side.

We camped here as part of a group on a rally. Large Park, very easy access of Inter. 10, excellent sign in and counter staff. Led me to our site. Concrete pads, large pull thru and roomy. This is a "destination resort" but for locals. Weekends is an invasion of golf carts and people driving non-stop around the park, most with built in music systems trying to out-blast each other. The good news is there is a strict curfew for noise and it was adhered to. Large, fun bar on site with live band on Saturday. With the investment in some excellent facilities it is very strange that their miniature golf facility - right by the entrance to the bar area - is totally overgrown with weeds and looks like was abandoned years ago. There are several interesting towns in the area, Avery Island was worth the trip as was the Rice Mill which is on the national register. Fun restaurants and bars within a few exits. Would certainly stop en-route again.

This place is fantastic. We got a deluxe patio - and it was great. Real patio furniture, concrete patio, sensational views. Crushed gravel - manicured and extremely well done. Views were fantastic - access for a big rig was fine. Front office OK. There was a HUGE amount of room between campsites - even for the non patio sites. I would revisit the area again just to stay here. Outside of a few of the resort Class A campgrounds - this is my favorite place. We stayed four days - wish it could have ben more, About 156 miles to the National Park - couple of nice restaurants in Luray - Walmart land other places within 10 minutes.

Location/Location/Location. If you have a space with the ocean view this place is worth the price. We were steps form the water and the views of the mountains was fantastic. There was an onsite guy preparing lobster dinners and roving "pie Lady" nightly. Roads and sites are grass/gravel. If you are close to the water there is no sewer - you have to sign up for the honey pot at an additional $17 charge and they are not set up to drain typical Class A sewers. So we had to wait to dump on the way out. Keep in mind. for the price they should be able to accommodate all sized. We had to back out as the interior roads were VERY tight with a 45 foot rig. But overall the views win out. Very friendly front office - well stocked and the area is fantastic.

If you have children - this place is a 10. Unreal facilities, snack bar, movie theatre, pools, basketball, tennis etc all on site and in excellent condition. Very well organized. In some areas there is a lot of room between sites. In others it appears to be very close and I have never seen so many towels on clothes lines overnight. Interior roads are asphalt/excellent, sites are crushed gravel. As a site to explore the area (without children) a very nice park but very overpriced.

The Canadian version of a State Park campground. Large area that also includes a marina, local restaurant (not bad but overpriced). Not much else in the immediate vicinity. Very nice area but surprisingly close to the interstate and fairly noisy at night. Pads were crushed granite and absolutely huge - probably 50 feet between sites. Good utilities. There is no campground host, you come thru the same entry point for the marina or day use of the park. Surprisingly expensive but very close to freeway - GPS coming into the park is off by one street. Good for a day or two. Forget going to Niagara Falls and head to Lake Niagara City. It is about 30 minutes and sensational - you can do the Falls later if you need to see it.

For an overnight stop not bad. Close proximity to I-30. A little traffic noise but not bad. Looks like it was once more of a destination place but facilities are a bit run down, pool was empty. Registration was interesting but overall the park was a decent value and I would stay here again while in transit. Had a 45 foot RV with a trailer and the roads were no problem either entering or exiting.

Check in people were very nice. Convenient to the interstate for entry and leaving. It was raining very hard so we did not get to see any of the facilities. This place is VERY VERY tight for a large rig with a car or trailer. Coming to registration you have to swing very wide in order to make it between two buildings and a 180- degree turn back to the spaces. We had a 18 foot trailer on the back of a 45 foot RV and the turn was so sharp the front axle of the trailer lifted off the ground. The drainage is poor - there was a big storm but the exit road had 4 inches of water at the turn around point and the roads are all gravel. PLEASE take the boulders away from the turns. Not bad for an overnight but I canceled my return stay due to the tightness of the entry road.

Hard to add much to the excellent reviews. This is a fantastic facility but the owners make it outstanding. The social activities are very special: we felt that the owners and all the other guests were friends. The creek that runs through the property is picture perfect. The landscaping and hardscapes are terrific. I loved it. The dog pen area is as nice as the rest of the resort. This is truly a Class A RESORT in all aspects. We will be back: hopefully this year.

A nicely run and managed KOA. Well laid out - trees were nice and were not unkept as others mentioned - we picked up strong direct tv signal with no problem. Very good cable. All gravel but well kept, wide roadways and uniformly level. Two very nice dog runs - one grass the other gravel. We don't have children but they had an outdoor movie for kids that looked fun and was very well attended. Permanent campers not obvious and the place generally had a good vibe and I am not a real KOA fan. Could have more information on local parks, attractions etc but that is a nit.

Tough to rate. The views are fantastic. Flathead Lake and the mountains. Excellent dog park, first class work out room. They meet you at the entrance and escort you to your site. Many of the sites are owner owned and these are very nice. The class A park shares the reception building and pool with an adjacent KOA campground. Not an issue but a bit of a surprise. Most of the sites are classified as lake view - but there is a very different view from those "up the hill". Many of the sites are gravel - nice gravel but the concrete sites are primarily owner sites. We initially had a site we were not please with so they moved us with no issue. What was a surprise was the airport that is immediately adjacent - the runway is about 100 yards from your windshield. When the first private jet landed it was very noisy - the upside is there is not a lot of airport traffic. Sites on the lower end of the facility have a view of the airport hangers so try to get as far up the hill as you can. For a "10" rating for a class A resort I expected more social events and interaction. This was very limited. Certainly not what we have experienced in other Class A only resorts. If you are going there for access to Glacier Park - it is 90 miles to the gate - then however far you are traveling for the day. If I were going just for Glacier NP - I would pick a campground much closer. The travel makes for a very long day. Overall very nice - but for the price I expected more and my rating reflects.

I booked this park baed on the other reviews on this site and its proximity to Jackson Hole and the Teton's. It is a disappointment. The reception area is very poor. You enter a very small room with a sliding glass window where the person takes your credit card. Feels like a 60's doctor office. The area for information is very limited. There is virtually no store of any kind. The sites are grass and gravel - decent but not well kept. The dog area is unfenced. Sites are close. I had to move my rig twice to allow others to exit and enter. Satellite is nonexistent, no cable and there is one channel that comes on via antenna. Cell phone works fine. It is about 25 miles from Jackson Wyoming - if there was another park in the area I would move in a heartbeat. It is a decent park but I would not recommend to a friend looking to stay in the area if they had other options.

Easy highway access - close to Zion and a 90 minute drive to Bryce Canyon. Big Rigs - beware if you are coming from the EAST - you need to verify you can get through the Zion Tunnel. This is urgent - or you ay have to turn around. There is a southern route that takes more time but avoids the tunnel. First campground with actual recycling - kudo's. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Can walk to the river - deep enough for a dunk or walk through the water - very nice. Nice facility overall. Has planted trees on all sites and very roomy. However, the trees completely blocked our satellite. We had to use cable as a backup. Trees had to be pruned to enable me to get our of our space, but they handles quickly and professionally. Biggest negative is the lack of cell signal. It is virtually nonexistent. There is one amplifier in the registration office. It is tethered to the wall so only one person can use it at a time. For a campground of this size this is not an acceptable alternative. We had to walk around the campground trying to find a spot with a phone signal. Roadways are very narrow. Exit with a 45 footer when the park is full was VERY tight. I had to back up and try to get a wider swing to make the turn. Nice pool. Well stocked provision area. There is a sensational dog kennel/daily sitting business about 5 miles away and right on the way to Zion. Rate was $20 day and our very picky dog just loved the place. They are exceptionally nice. Called the Doggie Dude Ranch in Rockville - call ahead as they book full regularly. Would have been a 9-10 if they had some type of acceptable phone service which they can fix. The entry/exit for a long rig is pretty much luck of the draw on your space and who is next to you.
