Good facilities for the RV and very helpful and friendly staff. We had tried to make two reservations for our two RV's by phone and we were told there would always be space as long as we weren't 'Grumpies'. Very reasonable rates and well situated on the main highway out of Buena Vista. Beware, sat/nav has the wrong address for... More

We loved this campground ! Super nice great hike to the river from motor home . Great access to jeep trails also! Not so many rules and signs that say do not do this or that! Beautiful shaded spots great tent spots behind our 50 amp hookup which I loved meeting !

We made our first trip to Colorado and came here based on a friends recommendation. Jeff & Margo are super friendly and helpful with suggestions on anything you'd like to do in the area. You're short walk down to the river and that alone has some of the greatest views. Then you have the sunrises and sunsets that are just... More

Jeff and Margo were absolutely kind to our group. We had some changes in our reservations last minute and they were so helpful in not charging for missing in action RV. On top of that, they had one cabin that they offered up to us last minute that saved the day. It sits right on the Arkansas river just north... More

My friend and I decided at the last minute to head to Buena Vista to do some hiking. There weren't many options available, but we were lucky to get the one and only cabin at Arkansas River Rim Campground. The cabin is set back overlooking the river. It is only big enough for two people, but there is a cot... More

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it was kind of noisy because of the proximity of the highway. Because I have a pop up camper the noise is an issue. Other than that it was great! The trails are great. The river is right behind the campground. I met the owner as I got there.... More

I chose this RV park because it has access to the Arkansas River whereas all of the others in the area do not. The river is running a bit high and the access is steep so our hope of fishing from the campground was not realized. Aside from that, we liked the location of this RV park. The owner, we... More

Eight years ago my kids and I set out for Colorado with the mindset we would aim for Leadville. 700 miles later it was getting too dark to go on the roughly 30 miles to Leadville. We spotted this place and stopped in to check it out. Even though they were more or less closed for the day, we were... More

We spent two nights there and because there a few sites we hadn't seen, we decided to camp two more nights. My husband went to pay and Jeff accused us of having more than our registered guests. However, we did not. My husband assured him there was no one else. Jeff, the owner, proceeded to say that we had more... More

After getting shut out on Walk-In sites in the Mt. Princeton area, I was startting to stress about my 4 day Hot Spring, Arkansas River getaway weekend. We drove by 3 or 4 parks on Hwy 24, then doubled back to Ark. River Rim based on the proximity to the river. Jeff told us he had plenty of tent spots... More
