Adequate campground with spectacular views

We booked a site same-day and so we weren’t expecting the best sites. We lucked out and our site, while close to the picnic area (which was not used during our stay), had spectacular views. The payoff was no shade, so make sure you account for that! Great access to fishing.

Breathtaking

This is a gem! Campsites are close to the River with stunning views all around. The stars were amazing with zero ambient light.

Great views of the Collegiate Peaks

If you don’t mind heavy boating traffic (shuttles & busses, etc.) and limited shade, this campground has some great upsides including:

  • Large drive-through spaces for RV’s (with tent pads)
  • Immediate access to the Arkansas river
  • Cool railroad bridge to explore (not fenced so please be careful with wandering kids and drunk friends!)
  • Beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks
  • Cellphone coverage is steady (could be a negative to some, I understand)

Take away the heavy vehicle traffic until about 5pm-ish and the lack of shade, Railroad Bridge would get 5.
