Cottonwood Camp

· Florence, Fremont, Colorado
2 acres hosted by Barbara J.
1 lodging site · 4 tent sites
This Hipcamp is accessible by boat.
Open May through October. This secluded, 2-acre campsite is the only place between the Royal Gorge and Lake Pueblo where you can fish and camp right on the banks of the Arkansas River. Accessible by watercraft only, you cannot drive to it or hike to it—you can only boat to it. There is no public road access to the camp. YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN WATERCRAFT. Access to the campsite requires your own boat. There are no direct roads for you take. You will be our only guests at this private riverfront location—no one else vying for the trout…no one’s boom box disturbing your sleep…no swimmers disturbing the fish. Note: We’re open May through October, and during those months, we might have to close temporarily for safety reasons when river flow-rates exceed 1,300 cfs (cubic feet per second). If we need to close when you have a reservation and you can’t change your date, we will notify you of the closure and refund your money.

Fish and camp along the Arkansas River
Quiet and Peaceful
Barbara was very helpful in us finding the place and getting settled. Great time fishing and camping, even saw a couple turkeys and some deer in the early morning. Very quiet and peaceful, will be returning.
