We enjoyed watching the kayakers and rafters floating by during the day, and listening to the roaring water at night. We found trails on the other side of the access road that offer beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks and the bridge itself is very picturesque.
This is one of the best campsites we have visited in Colorado. It’s located a few miles north of Buena Vista Colorado next to the Arkansas River. The site has terrific walk-in tent sites along the river as well as group picnic facilities and drive camping for campers and vans. They have a huge boat launch to access the world class white water rapids on the Arkansas River. The site has about a 30 campsites and was only about half full during g the summer peak. The access road is dirt but flat graded. They have a camp host on site. The sites have fire rings and picnic tables. The facilities are new and well maintained. The river is powerful and campers with kids should take care. Great hiking and rock climbing in the area. This is a must see.
Lovely little spot by the Arkansas. Plenty of spots to hammock and access the riverbank. The bridge is a short walk from the parking lot. Spots are reservable, and if you plan on going on a weekend, get there early. Vault toilets. Bring drinking water. No running water.
