Description

Ruby Mountain Campground is another river hugging outdoor venture, located within earshot of the roaring Arkansas rapids. And, like all parks in the AHRA (Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area), you’ll be hard pressed to find urban amenities. Charge your phones and pitch a tent in one of the area’s many campsites.

Camped here for fishing and birding July 2020. Birding is good in the canyon just after the one-lane road leading in to the campground. Fishing was good on the Nestle easement. Note that both sides of the river are private below the boat ramp (and the owners live on-site and strictly enforce) so don't even try to fish downstream.

We stayed here in mid October 2015. We loved it. It's not very far from Buena Vista, the hot springs or Salida but it is just far enough away from all those places to be quiet and peaceful (at least in October). We stayed in one of the tent only sites and felt like we had the whole campground to ourselves. It was lovely. Wish we had stayed all 3 nights of our trip there.
