What’s the quintessential way to experience the heart of Colorado?
Going camping, of course.
Camping is the ultimate chance to get immersed in nature in one of the most beautiful areas in the state. Unplug from technology and reboot relationships with families and friends over card games played by lantern light or relaxing around the campfire and gazing at the stars. So many stars… It’s a proven stress-reducer, as well as great exercise in the fresh air and messy-hair-don’t-care. And it happens here. Year-round.
But camping means different things to different people. To some, it is primitive — hiking for hours into the backcountry to claim a remote spot. To others, it is a necessary basecamp in the middle of a long hike or rafting trip. Many choose to to pitch a tent in an organized campground. For some, we suspect it’s just the best excuse to toast marshmallows over the campfire. Then there are the “glampers,” who prefer the comforts of campers or RVs.
In the broad definition of camping, all these experiences are legit. And all can be found right here. Our numerous tent-campgrounds, RV parks and off-the-grid spots are all conveniently located near an incredible array of outdoors adventures, too. Enjoy hot springs, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and much more.
Whatever your camping style may be, you’ll be a happy camper in Buena Vista & Salida, Colorado.
