“Great location in bicycling distance from Salida”
Reviewed Oct 01, 2017
This is a great little RV park right in Salida with easy bicycle access to downtown and nearby bicycle trails. It also is an awesome location for dual sport motorcycle riders as there are plenty of trail access right behind the park. The park is a bit older, but the location is great. This park is totally run by volunteers who are there for the season and do a great job. The camphost Estel is awesome too. There is a group of seasonal campers that spend the summers here and we found all the campers very friendly and got to know a number of them in the 3 weeks we were there. We definitely plan on coming back as it was super friendly and awesome location.
The park only has 30amp service and water hookups at each site. There is no sewer, but the volunteers come around with a honey wagon on Mondays & Thursdays to empty your tank, so no biggie there. The water pressure isn't the greatest and the campground suffers periods of low voltage at high use times, so best to have an EMS to protect your rig. Overall, this wasn't a big deal and wouldn't stop us from coming back. There is room for larger rigs on the pull throughs and some of the back in sites. Most of the river sites are on the small to medium size. I was able to fit our 42' 5th wheel in a pull through and could have fit it in some of the back in sites. I had to park my HDT truck in an overflow area, but no biggie. The campground is surprisingly quiet and cozy considering it's not that far from the main road so that was a pleasant surprise. There is a Walmart across the street that makes easy access to groceries or supplies.
The daily rate (2017 rates) at this campground is on the high $45 non river / $50 river site, but the monthly rate $475 non river / $500 river site is very reasonable, so if you can stay longer, it's well worth it. There is no extra charge for eletricity or honey wagon service. We stayed 3 weeks and the monthly rate was very reasonable for our stay. Please be aware they only take Cash/Check for the payment.
You have some gorgeous views of the mountains from the campsite. This campground usually closes around the first weekend in Oct.
