What a great place! We just bought our trailer this year but have been tent campers for years, so we are relatively new to the "RV Park" scene. That said, we will become regulars of this place. It was so clean and the staff was so friendly and inviting from the moment I walked in to check in to guiding us to our site to the friendly wave as we pulled out. As far as facilities go, I'll reiterate what everyone else has said. The restrooms/shower were immaculate, clean, fresh paint and even cute little flower pots on the windows. The sites were clean and level and freshly raked for each new guest (this may not seem like a big deal but it makes it so inviting and also helps keep them level as ruts are avoided). We didn't use the pool but now that we've been there and seen it we will come prepared to next time as we made reservations for a weekend next month. We also didn't use the laundry as we are just weekenders at this point, but looking through the window it seemed nice enough. The beach area was nice, I tried to fish but the river is in peak runoff so it was moving to fast, we did enjoy sitting on the little deck on the Adirondack chairs; it was very peaceful. There is so much to do around here between the Royal Gorge, to all the activities on the Arkansas River,to the cute little town of Salida only 23 miles away which has a great downtown, a Walmart and grocery stores. It will take us several trips to see and enjoy it all, it's nice to know of a good campground that is centrally located among it all. If I'm going to give it a negative mark (and I know this is splitting hairs), but being an old tent camper I did miss having a fire pit, however I can also understand the reasons why they don't. As far as road noise our bed is in front of the rig so with the AC on it was a non-issue for us, even sitting outside we tuned it out quickly and we were in site 8 next to the road. So in closing; clean, level, immaculate restrooms and owners that truly care. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Travel Trailer.

Only down side is the hiway noise. Close to Salida CO. Well manicured sites, close to the Arkansas River. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed over Memorial Day Weekend. The Hosts were absolutely the best. The cleanliness of the bathrooms made a huge impression! (I clean for a living) Actually, the cleanliness of the entire park was commendable.

We can't wait to go back, and we highly recommend this RV Park.

We were close to the highway, but we weren't bothered by the noise. The area by the river is well maintained and it was a great place to sit and enjoy.

There was a church group staying at the camp at the same time, and the hosts made certain we were comfortable. We were invited to the campfire marshmallow roast Saturday night.

It was just a great stay. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were close enough to run into Salida for a quick visit. We also walked down to the eclectic art gallery.

Started out with a 10 rating: Deduct 2 for road noise 24/7. Deduct 1 for limited 50 amp site availability. Deduct 1 for poor and intermittent Wi-Fi connectivity. Deduct 1 for lack of grass between sites (mostly weeds and sticker bushes). Overall very friendly host, well kept park, and views of mountains and river. Fishing very poor in river and owners require catch and release along their stretch. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pulled in by chance after leaving another RV park with very unlevel sites.The owners were very nice, let me see all the available site before making the choice of which one I wanted. Very quiet, beautiful setting with meadow/mountain view on one side and the Arkansas river on the other. Pool, propane and a nice store. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Motorhome.

A well maintained park with a friendly and attentive owner on site. Located on the Arkansas River. Only negative is the proximity to the highway giving to traffic noise. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is in a peaceful setting with large meadows across US 50 and the Arkansas River on the other side. Good gravel interior roads and but can be little dusty if wind is blowing the wrong way. Good spacing between sites. You can walk down to the river from several locations and fish or watch the Rocky Mountain Big Horn sheep. The power and water pressure is good when they are not watering. Has are great hosts. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dusty sites good for an overnight. Overpriced for the facility. WiFi hotspot at the office. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Motorhome.
