Nestled in a canyon next to a river. There are no amenities or toilets. There are around 10 spots that consist of semi-level ground and a few rock rings for fire pits. Most spots are less than 50 feet from the road, so you'll hear cars during the day (not too many pass by at night). <br /> <br />The turn off to the campsite is approx. 9 miles from Highway 285 in Buena Vista. You'll pass Rainbow Lake, and it's the second turn off to the left. If you see a turn off to the right, you've gone too far. <br /> <br />Approx. 3.5 miles towards Buena Vista is Cottonwood Hot Springs, a very relaxing paid hot springs resort. The campsite is within a quarter mile of the Colorado Trial, so there are great hiking opportunities nearby. Check out Cottonwood Lake off of Highway 343 for fishing, camping, kayaking, hiking and 4-wheeling in the summer, and snowmobiling, cross-county skiing, ice skating and ice fishing in the winter.
