KOA Buffalo


If you are heading down I-40 and in need of a place to rest just off the interstate, this place may be it. Just know that you will probably need to use either your a/c unit or fan and close your windows to block out the interstate noise.

Where Is He?

When we arrived we were super tired from traveling all day. As we walked up to the office door, there was a note on the door that stated he was in the rear and to come to get him for service. Not knowing how big the place was or that what he meant was the rear of the building not the rear of the campground, we called. Who knew? Anyway, check-in went fine. We had a reservation for a full hook-up site. He handed us the map and explained where to go.

Always Test The Pedestal

As we entered the park, we could see it was not really that big. Most of the sites were pull-through but small. The perimeter sites were back in. The sites were fairly level side to side but the front of the site dipped down. Nothing a few extra leveling blocks couldn’t handle. No problems with the water but the 30 amp hook-up was showing a red light for an open ground issue. I forget which one. We always carry a 50 amp step down, so we just plugged into the 50 amp side and had no problems. We used the wifi booster but the wifi was still in and out. Verizon cell signal was good.

Final Thoughts

This park is small and the sites are pretty close together. The staff is friendly and the grounds were clean. We would stay here again if passing through but only for 1 night. There did not appear to be a lot to do (we were there in the off-season) and the site was too small for a fire. After a night of rest (remember to close your window and turn on the a/c or fan), you can be back on I-40 in a flash the next morning.
