Hi! We are Helen, Dom, and Derek Burns! We had dreamed of owning and operating a campground for years, and had two fall through back in our home state of New Hampshire. Dom had spent a lot of time traveling for work in the Front Range, so Dom and Helen started looking for available campgrounds in Colorado and found Buena Vista KOA on their first trip out West. The stunning view of Mount Princeton provides a great way to wake up as you prepare for your day’s adventure in the Arkansas River Valley or in the majestic Collegiate Peaks.
Dom left behind an IT job in New Hampshire and Helen left a position as a paraprofessional in a middle school. They are thrilled to be able to run their own business. Be sure to say hi to Helen at the Cook Shack on summer mornings!
Derek joined the family after he left the Navy in September 2013, he has been an invaluable asset to our team ever since, helping with outdoor work and cleaning.
Lindsay's here too.
WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY BUSINESS!
