Buena Vista

Lives up to the Beautiful View in the foot hills of Presidential Peaks. Tent camped in August and woke up one morning at 38 degrees. Very nice and clean.

Wide open and a lot to look at

This campground is in a great location.  Its close enough to BV for a quick trip to town and set back off the highway enough to make it quiet.  Views abound everywhere in the valley here and this campground joins the fun.  Most sites are on varying elevations up a hillside so we weren't looking right at our neighbors.  The ground were very clean and facilities kept up nicely.  This campground, like most KOA's, is great for families.

Very friendly staff

They were sold out when we called but had a site on a 20 amp they allowed us to use, very accommodating. Mountain views all around, an ice cream social, and clean facilities made this a very nice stay. Thanks Buena Vista KOA!

Great campground!

This campground is right off the road and easy to find. They had RV sites in the front of the camp and tent sites up the road. We had showers and laundry, general store and wood for sale. Our site was very nice with lots of room. We had a picnic table and a fire pit in the site. There were a few portable bathrooms that were super clean available for night time runs.

Great views of the mountains!

Great Place Wonderful views.

We stayed here while visiting family. The staff was great! It’s a great location, has hiking and biking trails and some amazing views of the mountains. It is close to all the things Buena Vista has to offer. A wonderful place for families, a nice playground and on Saturday night we had a ice cream social. The campsites are gravel and dirt so it is dusty. We will stay here again.

My kids love this place!

This is a great spot if you want to camp and have some fun and conveniences all in one place!

Location is great and is close by to Mt Princeton Hot Springs, rafting on the Arkansas River, hiking, and the town of Buena Vista.

Pros:

  • Variety of accommodation options: cabins, tent sites, RV sites
  • Large pull through spots available for RVs
  • Well stocked KOA store with groceries, souvenirs, and camping essentials
  • Very friendly and helpful staff
  • Fun indoor game room with air hockey, ping pong, darts, and a pool table
  • While we stayed here, the camp hosts had an ice cream social which was also a fundraiser to send kids with cancer to camp

Cons:

  • I prefer more isolation when camping, as you would expect for a KOA the sites are close and there are a lot of people and people sounds
  • The bathrooms were a little stinky
  • This is a very dry area, so it can be a little dusty at times

My kids think this is the world’s greatest campground, which overcomes any negatives!

Great facility but no trees

Great facility but no trees. Clean bathrooms. It was our first night in a camper.

Outstanding Campground !

We and our camping buddies made reservations to stay in this popular park for 6 nights but the only pr was we couldn’t reserve any site for more than two days meaning we would be moving sites constantly during the week. The dirt road arriving to Ohaver lake is certainly one to proceed slowly on. As you climb the mtn the last mile or so you are greeted with numerous washboards on the switchbacks but don’t worry, It’s worth it! When we arrived we noticed that two walk ups had just pulled out, 4 and 5. The friendly camp host allowed us to occupy those side by side sites which meant no moving for the rest of our stay! We enjoyed nice daytime temperatures in the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures right around 50. And NO humidity! Wow that was great for some Arkansans! Though not on the lake, we found our sites were wonderful! This park is popular! Lots of activity and action on the lake from fishing to kayaking to swimming ( brrr) to sunbathing. We hiked around the lake and enjoyed the beauty of the area. No ATT cell service and no tv access so really enjoyed the down time! On the way out, at the visitors center located at Poncha Springs is a dump station with non potable water for $10 credit/debit card and potable water available at the next building. Thank you Poncha Springs!

Incredible Trout Fishing

This is one of my favorites from this summer trip to Colorado. O’Haver Campground is a high altitude lakeside campground outside of Salida Colorado. The site has about 35 sites surrounding two sides of the lake. The trout fishing he is incredible and many folks were getting their 4 fish limit each day. The campground facilities are outstanding with clean toilets and access to water. The camp host was new but very helpful and had an ample supply of firewood for the guests. We camped in site 8 and 7. The best sites by far was number 10 on the lake with a western view. They have 4 or 5 no reserve sites for those traveling through the area. This is a great site for swimming, SUP boards, and some light kayaking. They have very good day use facilities as well as group sites. You will need a reservation if you are looking to spend a day or more. The site is close to Salida and very popular with folks from around the area.

As a Dyrt Ranger, I get asked to review products from time to time. At this campsite, we had some nice pine trees inside our camp and decided to test our Wenzel 2 Person Lightweight Hammock. Wenzel is a well know camping supply company that have a long history of making quality tents and camping gear since 1887. Wenzel.com is a great site and their products can be directly purchased from the company or a third part. I gave the hammock 4 out of 5 stars. We enjoyed using the hammock in the afternoon to relax and take in scenery at our site. The hammock was very easy to setup and comes with two elastic ropes to tie the ends to the tree. I really like the light weight of the hammock and would take this on a trek or remote camping without hesitation. The hammock could easily accommodate two persons and the cover pulls over nicely for sleeping or just getting out of the sun. I am 6’2 and weight 210 pounds and the hammock was more than strong enough to hold me. I am going to give the Wenzel Hammock a big thumbs up and plan to use on my upcoming hike in Colorado. Ranger Steve.

This was a very nice place.

It was quiet although there were very few empty sites when I arrived. That was aroud 4. By 5 it was full. Camphost was friendly and sold fire wood. There was a sign that ssid no hammocks, so before setting up camp I asked the host and he said it was fine. Very dark, great for stars.
