Our Top Colorado River Site

Ruby Mountain is located a few miles south of Buena Vista Colorado along the Arkansas River. The site can be accessed from the main highway down a dirt and gravel road. The road is single lane near the end and a bit precarious with the rock cliff on one side and the river on the other. The main attraction here is the river. The boat ramp provides access to private users and the backup for commercial users when the river is low. The have about 30 campsites here all facing the west with great views of the mountains and the river. The sites are the best we have seen. The have boulders outlining each of the sites with gravel underneath for tents. The sites can accommodate large fifth trailers and vans as well. Each sites is equipped with picnic tables and fire rings. The site host is awesome. He provided free firewood and welcome us shortly after arriving. We stayed for three nights and it was great. We had beautiful sunsets and great views of the Rockies to the west. They have clean toilets and a great boat ramp for white water rafters. The have some short hikes in the surrounding rocky hills and also some good fishing in the river. We are coming back here for sue.
