Registration staff busy but courteous and helpful. Our assigned Site appeared to be in a brand new section of the campground. Gravel was a little soft but wood blocks under the rear wheels helped that (they had rain the week before we arrived). Sites close but few others occupied this time of year. Power per my surge meter was spot on and water was within the parameters of RV acceptable pressure. No cable in this section yet, however, it appeared as if the connecting boxes were in place so maybe later. Rest rooms, laundry and showers were brand spanking new. Stunning views of "Ivy League" fourteeners to the west. We would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just outside of town so you may want to be fully prepared or have a toad.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Easy in and out. Large pull-through and back-in sites. Super friendly staff. Sites are well-maintained crushed rock. We would and will stay here again. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park with good level sites, convenient hookups that work, and nicely spaced campsites. The wind does come up and blow every once in a while, but this is characteristic of the Buena Vista area. The campground looks out on a nice view of Mount Princeton. The campground is just a short distance from town, making the stores a convenient distance. Our rate reflects the Passport America rate. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 7 days. The rate was for Passport America. The sites were level gravel the hookups were good. The Wi-Fi worked good most of the time but would occasionally disconnect. The entrance road was full of dips but I noticed that they brought it a load of gravel to do road work. There was a nice new clubhouse with laundry. The staff was very helpful to guide me to local attractions and even helped me get into a dentist in town. We would stay here again if in the area. This area is very nice We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

First, be careful entering the park, there is a sizable dip at the entrance that you need to slow down for. The park is very overpriced for a very basic parking lot type campground with gravel sites and little or no shade. Wi-Fi didn't work and no cable TV. Also they charge you $4.00 PER PET. We had planned to stay her for a few days but we found a much better campground close by that was a lot less costly and NO PET FEE. Also, they told us that next year they won't allow pets at all due to people complaining about the pet fee. Not very friendly people. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This place is so expensive and has no WiFi connection that works. We spent almost $50 bucks a night on a site that had no cable and no internet connection parked on gravel. When we asked the main office about internet they gave us a password but they should have told us don't bother wasting your time trying to log on. I checked with other campers who also complained that they were never able to use the internet either. This problem is costing them business because there are 2 other RV parks next door some people go instead of this one because of the WiFi issue. We'll be joining them next time. There is also a large dip when you enter the park that shakes up your RV. It seems like this should be the place to stay in Buena Vista but we won't be back unless they fix the WiFi issue and ditch the ditch. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just a one night stand using Passport America. The PA rate was $24 plus $4 per day per DOG! Obviously they will tolerate dogs but don't really want you to stay there if you have a dog. Sites were spacious and views were great, but I would not stay there again due to the dog fee. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate paid was based on weekly rate. This is a well run, clean park. Decent site separation, picnic table and BBQ/fire ring pit, some grass and a tree at each site. Sites in sections C and D are for short term stays and are larger than sites in sections A and B which are for seasonal stays. They offer WiFi but it was pretty slow. Our own Verizon WiFi was also slow here. We would stay here again if in the area because this park is off highway 24, and the other parks in the area are right on the highway. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, friendly staff and neighbors. It appears that most are here for the entire summer. Very easy access for 40 foot even in the back-in sites. Low water pressure. Wide level sites. The park has a Jeep group that does group drives on Mondays and it's free. Typical slow Wi-Fi, T-Mobile roams to ATT, and Verizon hot-spot works well. Very quiet 24/7. I would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We found this park with Passport America. We had only planned to spend a couple nights, and then enjoyed the area and the park so much we stayed 8 nights. Beautiful views and a great location. The owners are lovely and they are making a lot of improvements to the property. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here monthly until we can purchase a home in Buena Vista, CO. A few minor instances happened while our stay, then we were going to move to a different and better site in the same RV Park in June 2010. Before we moved, the owners said we broke the ceramic around the water and we need to pay them $200. It was broken when we set up the RV, so we did not break it. Several other sites had missing or broken ones also. Owner said we had to pay or get out! We moved to another RV Park June 30th. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access off Hwy. 24. Interior roads and sites are gravel. This park can be very dusty at times. Sites are pretty level. Park activities are maily provided by campers who have been going to this campground for many years. It appears these campers also do their own yards. We would stay here again, but just for overnight. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

I've stayed there to do some hiking of the Colorado 14ers. Good location (can walk to town and close to mountains), good rates, and good management. The couple running it try to make a good community atmosphere and have been improving the park as time goes on. I think this is the 3rd year for them. Nice double wide trailer used as a community center. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
