Looking for place to stay, Paddlefest

I have two dogs, coming over for Sat and Sunday night.
Anyone have a place to rent in the south part of town, near the play park?
Thanks

During paddlefest they open up the parking lot by the park for free camping.

South Main has got several rentals still available for Paddlefest. Located right at the riverpark: Buena Vista Colorado Lodging | Vacation Rentals

Camping is also an excellent option, although I have a feeling it will be pretty crowded.

I just checked but they said nothing was available. I left a message for someone to call me.
thanks

Skide, I have a room in my house I might be able to rent out cheap if you're still looking. I have a big friendly lab so your dogs would have to play well with others. I live about 6 blocks from S Main. -eddie [email protected]

Dang, they must have got a lot of calls in the last several days....

Here are a few other options you may want to look into:

Cabin Rentals Buena Vista, Colorado, vacation rentals

Vista Court Cabins - Buena Vista, Colorado

Welcome to Thunder Lodge - Buena Vista, Colorado

Lodging - Buena Vista, Colorado - Liars' Lodge Bed & Breakfast

Buena Vista House Rental: Downtown Family Retreat - Walk Everywhere! | HomeAway

the last one is on Cedar St just a couple blocks from the river. The rest are just west of the stoplight (but still walking distance). Hope that helps..... although if your only looking for one night I would suggest camping or taking Eddie up on his generous offer.

Logan, can you suggest a good camp ground up around the Princeton springs?

You have Chalk Lake and Mt. Princeton campgrounds a short ways upstream from Princeton Hotsprings. There isn't much dispersed camping on CR 162, but if you head up onto the plateau of the mountains on the south end of Chalk Creek there is a bunch of good free camping around the South Eddy Creek/Raspberry Gulch/Browns Creek areas.

Also, I have talked with a local who has ran Chalk Creek below the Cascade Falls. He says it's manky class IV with a couple V's and a mandatory portage if you put in at Chalk Lake and run down to the Colorado Trail bridge. III/IV if you run from the Colorado Trail bridge down to Mt. Princeton Hotsprings and II/III if you run from the hotsprings down to highway 285 or the Ark confluence. I haven't boated it myself but there are a couple nice looking slides in the upper sections...need a minimum of 150 in Chalk at Nathrop for this....
