Hey - does anyone have any info on doing an overnighter along the Arkansas below Salida? I mean camping on the river, but not in one of those Ark Headwaters campgrounds. Looking for a weekend float, fish, camp. Thanks!

There aren't too many to choose from below Rincon (which was discussed on the other thread), and what you do have is generally pretty close to the road...You may want to look at a topo, or just scout the canyon real well first, but there is a river-left campsite about a mile below Cotopaxi where there is a large downed Cottonwood tree. There is a site at Fernleaf Gulch (kind of a tough landing) across from Lone Pine. There is a BLM site between the highway and the river 1 mile below Texas Creek between highway mile markers 253 & 254. You can also camp at the undeveloped Maytag access site about another .5 mile downstream.

Hope that helps. Have fun!
