George and Devin (sp?) are just really great people. They are both delightful!
When I told George that my daughter was a little cold on Friday night, he brought over 2 of his own sleeping bags to ensure she slept comfortably on Saturday night. They also kept us well-stocked with firewood and water. Not many hosts would be so conscientious.

Our stay in the tipi at Riverwalk Yurts was excellent! The tipi was lovely and even better than expected. The riverfront views were magical with lots of areas to sit and soak it all in! The hosts provided us with firewood so we were able to cook delicious campfire dinners. The cherry on top was the clean, convenient bathroom facilities just a short 2-minute walk from our campsite!

The town of Paonia was also wonderful to explore. We visited Big B's Hard cider (right next door to the camp property), "The Diner" in town (not positive that's the official name but it was the only restaurant open due to COVID-19 and their breakfast was excellent), Paonia United Brewing Co, and a few other spots! The entire experience was even better than we imagined and we would certainly recommend this for a quick weekend getaway. We'll be back!

PS - The directions may seem a little weird, but trust them! They're very accurate and were so helpful!

Our tipi and surrounding site at Riverwalk Yurts was truly a treat. Beautiful, clean, peaceful. Lots of nice space to relax and enjoy the surrounds. The river is pretty and will lull you to sleep. There was plenty of comfortable space in the tipi and outside for us, our baby and toddler. Hosts George and Devon are welcoming and helpful. It was a pleasure meeting them.

The hosts of the site were very friendly. The care, setup and introduction to the site really sets the mood. The outdoor shower house is a really nice extra and is top notch!

Gorgeous Tipi along the North Fork of the Gunnison. Friendly and helpful hosts. While the address is Hotchkiss, the campsite is much closer to Peonia. We loved our stay.

We had such an amazing stay, the location on the river was beautiful and peaceful and the Fire pit was perfect for cooking dinner. George was so friendly and helpful and we felt welcomed from the moment we drove up.
We were able to enjoy time at the Black Canyon national park in addition to camping out under the stars in the Tipi.
I would absolutely recommend this site to anyone. It’s the perfect combination of camping and nature combined with a hot shower and flushing toilet for those of us who just can’t embrace the 100% roughing it. It’s well-kept and the hosts are wonderful and our kids said they can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for a great stay and everything you did to make it perfect for us.

The site had plenty of chairs to enjoy the river and the fire pit and a picnic table for meals. Our family of 4 slept comfortably in the tipi and the location was perfect. So peaceful and relaxing right on the river. Just steps from this gorgeous river

Perfect spot by the river. The tipi was clean and comfortable. The fire pit was well laid out and firewood was ready. The hot shower and toilet are a huge plus. There are rainbow trout in the river, but one less of them now...
