I loved the Castaway campsite at Basecamp on the Poudre! Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a river for a sleeping companion. Although there is some noise from the road during the day, it is barely noticeable over the sound of the river and it dies down almost completely around dusk. There are some mosquitos and biting flies (river) but nothing a little preparation can't handle. I'd go back tonight if I didn't have to work!

Great campsite! Has a nice little beach on the Poudre and a clean porta potty. We enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July.

River lounging and floating
My friends and I loved this site and being able to hang by and float the river. Make sure you read Johnny’s instructions on how to get to this site specifically as it is different than the general hipcamp listing. Happy campers here!

Private Little Spot
They aren’t joking about the mosquitos. We brought several different repellents with us and still ended being snacked on. We booked 3 nights and were only able to stay one due to lightning. Being there for 23 hours and repeatedly applying spray, lighting candles, and wearing bracelets the camper with the least bites was the one who had 12, the one with the most was 54. The view was beautiful. It was nice to go camping and not be on top of our neighbors. You could hear the traffic from the road during the day, but that died down at night. The cell service here is also as advertised-VERY limited to non-existent. The adults liked that, the teen did not. The port-a-pot was a nice option, but hadn’t been cleaned out in 2 weeks. The solo fire pit was nice.

First Camping Trip with Toddler
The site was perfect! We were able to find it easily with the instructions. Our dog and toddler both loved the sandy beach and lots of area to explore. You can hear the road but the river noise drowns it out mostly, especially at night. The only other people we saw were rafting or kayaking down the river - very cool! The toilet was clean and well maintained and the firepit and chairs were a big plus. We will definitely come back!
