Tara's land on the Arkansas river was beautiful! Tara was very accommodating, extremely friendly, and quick to respond. Our dog had a blast romping around and swimming in the river. Some of our group went tubing/rafting to the campsite while the rest of us were fly fishing the river. It's a great spot with very good fishing hole right on the property. We highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway and will definitely be staying again!

This would be great for a group that reserved all 3 sites. Site #1 has all the river frontage and the amenities. Other 2 sites are pretty close and just flat patches of grass. Site 1 was occupied so we set up as distant as we could. It did work for us as a quick stopover. Host seemed very nice. River views are lovely (from Site 1).

First the camp host Tara and her dog Walter were very nice. The site is beautiful and peaceful. Big sites with plenty of room. It’s right on the Arkansas River! This was our first Hipcamp camping trip. We were very pleased.

Beautiful views and right along the river with your own access! Spots 1, 2 and 3 are fairly close, so keep that in mind if you’re looking for something private. This is definitely more of a social stay :)

The campsite was a lovely spot right by the river! Tara and her mom were great hosts and so nice to talk to! Plus our kids and our dog loved getting to hang out with Tara’s dog, Walter! Can’t wait to go back

Great peaceful spot on the river. We shared it the first night and then had it to ourselves the second night, which was heavenly. Friendly host whose house is up the hill away from the river, so the site felt very private. Easy 20 minute trip to Salida. Definitely recommend.
