“Gorgeous camping close to town”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

This area was great, had lots of boondocking sites and was only 15 minutes to Buena Vista. We were there over Memorial Day weekend which was busy, but it cleared out after Monday. Great cell service, roads were a bit bumpy coming in but nothing our 24 ft class C couldn't handle. Our friends even got their 38 ft class A in fine. The ... more

I drove 285 to the Windmill Drive entrance to the Fourmile Rec Area at Road 308. I scoped on a Wednesday in early June. There are 6-7 spots on this road that I saw. There was ONE camper on this whole road that day. ... more

“Fantastic views, huge sites”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2016

Overall Rating

There are many dispersed sites available in the Fourmile Recreation Area, near the Arkansas River and Buffalo Peaks Wilderness area. To get to these sites, from Buena Vista (BV), take FR 371 (Colorado Ave). Just before reaching the RR tunnels, there is a right hand turn for FR 375. This is also the way to access Lehardy Cutoff and Turt... more
