“Ok, keep going. Keep going―now stop! You’re good.” Rincon Campground is geared toward the RV-inclined outdoors man (or woman), providing ample room to hitch-up your RV. And, located just yards from the Arkansas River, the fishing and boating opportunities are just as vast as the river is long―1,469 “vast” miles, that is.

Stayed here mid October 2015. I wanted a campground that was close to Salida. There is another campground which is not on Hipcamp yet, Salida East, which turned out to be closer but we had already booked our stay at Rincon so we stayed there. It is hard to tell from the map but this campground is VERY close to a busy highway. Especially sites 6 and 7 are practically right on the highway. It was extremely noisy - not too bad at night but the mornings around 6am got loud with cars going past. Site 6 is also right next to the pit toilet and was a bit smelly. No water and you have to pay $7 for parking (total about $30/night) and I didn't think it was worth it. Might be nice if you were doing a river trip though perfect river access.
