We are back at another KOA. We tried and tried to get a site at other campgrounds but they were all full due to being the 4th of July and we wanted to be in the Buffalo area so here we are.
RV Park: Buffalo KOA
Location: Buffalo, Wyoming
Cost: $57.778 (including tax)
Services: FHU (30 AMP)
Comments: An interesting RV park. We had made reservations and the only sites they had available were for 30AMP. This is no problem since we can use any of 50/30/15 AMP and have done so many, many times. BUT the manager told us upon check in that since our rig was a 50AMP rig we would not be allowed in the 30AMP site even though we had already paid for one night when the reservation was made. We offered to not stay there but they would not refund our first night. Hmmm…very interesting customer service. After a discussion on ensuring the park that we understand 30AMP and know what our rig can do with that kind of power they allowed us to stay there. We did not want to walk away from a $57 deposit.
The other sites around the park were very typical of an RV Park but there were a few deluxe patio sites and the tent sites sit on the shores of Clear Creek.
The park is neat and well maintained and is about 5 minutes to historic downtown Buffalo. Nights were quiet and peaceful.
The Buffalo KOA is only a few hundred yards from the Winchester Steak House which is fabulous. We ate dinner there one night and loved it. If you enjoy a nice steak then this is the place.
We had tried to get a site at Deer Park RV Park which is just down the road from Buffalo KOA but they were full. It was a holiday week (4th of July) and a campsite was difficult to find. We did visit the park and speak to the staff and they were extremely kind and helpful and were willing to squeeze us in a smaller site just to accommodate us but since we could not get our deposit back from KOA we decided to stay with KOA otherwise….
Next time…Deer Park. The park has more of a campground feel to it and is nestled in the trees. It offers WiFi and cable and has a quaint, cozy feel to it.
