About UsArkansas River Rim Campground & R.V. Park

The Arkansas River Rim Campground and RV Park is nestled along the Arkansas River in Colorado's "Banana Belt of the Rockies", the only park in the upper Arkansas River Valley that sets adjacent to the Arkansas River. Buena Vista's reputation for rest and recreation is a four-season draw. The rivers and trails offer hikers, bikers, four-wheelers, rafters, hunters, skiers and snowbirds - all the colors of the seasons. Scenic highways take you to golf courses and gold mines, set in majestic pines. Known as the "Banana Belt of the Rockies", the weather is always spectacular. The dog days of summer boast temperatures in the 70's and 80's with calm cool nights in the 50's. Many have discovered Buena Vista, but we are still a "one stoplight" town, with many fine restaurants, interesting shops, and town activities to engage in. Plan to enjoy the beauty in a family owned and operated park where your comfort is our top priority! We look forward to meeting you soon!

All of our camp sites feature a picnic table as well as a fire pit, so groups large or small will have no trouble roasting marshmellows around the fire or eating dinner together at the table. All of the campsites are backed against the forest, giving a more natural atmosphere, as well as giving you a chance to see plenty of cute chipmunks, cotton tails, and humming birds.
