Cheap/Free Camping near Salida

Hey, heading down to salida this weekend for a job interview, check out the town, and do a bit of paddling. Is there any decent, close, freeish camping near town that can be reached by a car? Any ideas would be great.

And if anyone's interested in paddling let us know; the wife would like to do browns and I would be up for anything else too - available to paddle sat, sun, mon, maybe tues. No phone so let us know here. Thanks.

Just north of town (Nathrop) turn right at 4 corners rafting, then hang a Louey along the tracks. Down by the river is Rainbow Rock. It's an office building size rock with a low overhang on the road side and green striping on the front. If you've run Browns much you'll recognize it.

Public land, free camping, and great climbing! You can put in here for Browns too, as it's on the milk run!

you can camp 4 free at salida east, but this is not close to Browns, #'s etc...but is just outside of salida.

I would like to join you guys if you paddle browns, #s, whatever.
