The campground is located at the end of a well maintained county gravel road putting it 2 1/2 miles off the main highway and very secluded. The campground is on the shores of the Arkansas River. The campground and the scenery are very beautiful with mountain and river views from the campground. This is dry camping, but has two vault toilets. Adjacent to and below the campground are ramps for river access. Rafting and fishing/fly fishing are the main activities. Buena Vista and Salida are both within easy driving distance. We camped at Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area, Hecla Junction Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

This park is located 2.4 miles off of 285 South. The road is gravel and a 12% grade in spots but the slow drive in is totally worth it. The sites sit up above the Arkansas River with stunning views. There are 22 sites. The sites are all gravel with nice picnic tables and a tent area at each site. The park is unmanned so self check in. The pricing is a little confusing as you have to pay for the campsite and then a vehicle pass and it's not clearly stated at the kiosk. There is a ranger who drives through several times a day who was very helpful with questions. This park is wonderful in that you are a bit isolated, have beautiful views and vey well groomed sites. We camped at Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area, Hecla Junction Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Salida is a 15 minute drive and is a funky little town with shopping, restaurants, river outfitters and bike shops. There is a lot of cycling in the area.
