Overall Rating:

The rate is $16 if you have the Colorado State Parks Annual Pass;otherwise, you will also have to pay the $7 per day entrance fee bringing it to $23 per night! The seven sites are right along the Arkansas River in a red-rock canyon, but it is also right along Highway 50. The river and canyon are beautiful, the highway not so nice. It has a lot of traffic, including noisy, heavy truck traffic and it is right next to the campground. The sites are well laid out with gravel for roads and parking. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring and tent pad. The numbering is strange; as you enter sites 1 through 5 are to your left. Sites 6 & 7 are to your left and through a pretty big dip that a larger RV might have a problem with. There are vault toilets. There is no dump station, fresh water fill, or trash pickup. So that is very expensive for a nice place to park along side the highway. You can think a very nice rest area along a highway. There are no park hosts. The campground is about 9 miles outside of the cute city of Salida, but we did not feel OK about leaving our rig to go into town. We were the only campers there and there was really no official presence. We would not stay here again. There is a BLM boon docking site closer to town that feels more secure. We camped at Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area, Rincon Campground in a Motorhome.
