“Convenient but very little Verizon”

Reviewed Aug 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We wanted to explore Salida after the many recommendations (we are touring Colorado). The main dirt road off the highway is very well maintained and wide (this is where the buses are). But then at 1/4 mile you make a right turn, into a smaller dirt road, not well maintained. You can drive on here for a 1/4 mile before you hit a Pri... more

“Convenient and busy”

Reviewed Jun 05, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a convenient location, a block off highway 285 between Salida & Buena Vista. This road is also used by all the local rafting companies for launching/picking up so beware there will be a number of buses going by throughout the day. We took the first spot off the road since it was easiest for our size and had no issues getting i... more

“Loved the area and stayed the week”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2017

Overall Rating

I had heard of this area from another RVer so I came over here, winding through the gorgeous mountains up from Colorado Springs, to find a spot to boondocks for the week. This was my first time in Colorado and I was super impressed and will be coming back when it gets warmer without threat of snow fall. I don't do snow. :) The camp ... more

A pal from the old school world of traveling around the world in vans for really real told us about this place, and it sure doesn't disappoint. Expect a thick soup of canyon walls, piñon pines, cell service and easy access to the relatively cute town of Salida (were Salida in any other state, it'd be the coolest small town around, b... more
