At River Side you will have an overlook of the Colorado River with river access. You will wake up to a breathtaking view of the river winding west towards the Anvil Points and Roan Plateau. The property is an easy 7 minute drive from old town New Castle where you can find a grocery store, gas and basic amenities. The town of New Castle is up and coming with several restaurants and a new local's favorite, Colorado Drifters Coffee and Fly shop. You can book a guided fishing trip on the river right there. A 20 minute drive from New Castle you can find a popular lake called Harvey Gap. The lake is great for paddle boarding and fishing. Ten minutes away from Harvey Gap is another beautiful area called Rifle Falls which is truly a hidden gem. Climbing and rafting are also available up Canyon. There are many great hikes around the area. Our favorite is Rifle Arch which is about 25 minutes away right outside of the town of Rifle. New Castle has mountain biking trails everywhere and is home to some of the best mountain biking trails in the Roaring Fork Valley. Glenwood Springs is 11 miles away and is the home of the famous hot springs. Aspen is about an hour from our property. 

Please note our home is located on this property as well. You will have an OPEN (no trees) grassy flat spot to the right of our home that overlooks the river with a view. Just realize you also have a view of our backyard and house to your west. 

Due to very high fire danger on the Western Slope we kindly ask you to refrain from using any fire while staying on our property. Please clean up after yourselves, your dogs, and be respectful of noise. 

Due to being on the river, campers or self contained bathrooms are required. We ask that you come prepared and bring your own bathroom. 

Please message or call when you arrive at our property. We are happy to answer any of your questions. Happy HipCamping to All!

    Joe was a very accommodating host and the pictures do not do the view justice. He came over to check on me after arrival and found the spot to be very quiet and idyllic. Would absolutely camp here again. Thanks Joe!

    Liked the location next to the river on a pretty quiet street (no I70 road noise or bright rest area lights). Snow removal of the spot could have been improved. Really tight to get my little Casita trailer through the gate and avoid a snowmobile trailer. Blocked the road to back in. Will consider staying there again in the summer.

    The view was beautiful! I wish we knew the site was right off the road for safety reasons, but it was overall an amazing stay!
