We have a 100+ acre working ranch with access to the Arkansas river for fishing, kayaking or just dipping your feet in. We have great views of the Collegiate Peaks 14ers and the Harvard trail is just up the hill. Frenchman's creek runs through the ranch which has hay fields, aspens, cottonwoods, pinons, cows, chickens, sheep and pigs. Deer, elk, coyotes and bobcats also wander through. We are 15 minutes from BV, 10 minutes from Clear Creek Reservoir, 20 minutes from Twin Lakes and 30 minutes from Leadville.

Canvas Tent in the Aspen Grove
Belinda is an absolute angel sent from above to guide us all in our camping journeys. She is a mother to all, including, but not limited to, her adorable highland cows. The aspens around us had eyes that were always watching, guarding. This is the safe place.

Site 1 - Cottonwood Shaded RV Spot
Cottonwood was a great spot with full hookups and a large area to relax. We were on the end of a two camping trip throughout Colorado and actually did more relaxing and resting at this site then anywhere else. They had a nice trail to the Arkansas river and a propane fire pit to use. Full hookups are always a bonus with a Hipcamp. The only downside was a bit of road noise from the highway but that is to be expected by it's location. A good spot to explore Salida, Buena Vista and Leadville areas.

Medium Canvas Tent in the Aspens
Loved the Colorado Tent in the Aspens!! We definitely want to come back and fish when the river is running at lower levels, but seeing the rafting and kayaking was cool too!! Bathhouse was very clean.

Site 2 - Cottonwood Shaded RV Spot
Highly Recommend!!
We loved our stay at Frenchman’s Creek Ranch!! Easy to find, site #2 was shaded, and we loved the wood adirondack chairs around the propane fire place. Nice walk to Arkansas River was a plus!! . All the farm animals were a treat to see too!! Highly recommend!!

Medium Canvas Tent in the Aspens
Medium Canvas Tent Access to Buena Vista 10/10 Access from HWY to Campsite 10/10 Ease of communicating with Belinda/Todd 10/10 Spot was perfect weekend get away. Privacy from the surrounding aspens, as well as the great layout of the tent, chairs, picnic area and car parking. This spot went above and beyond what I had imagined from reading the other reviews.

Medium Canvas Tent in the Aspens
The tent site was perfectly secluded among the aspen trees. The hosts were great, this site was perfect and near to everything in the area!
