Description
Free BLM land on Highway 50 between County Road 101 and 102. Located right on the Arkansas River just east of Salida, CO. About 5 minutes to town. Look for "Bighorn Sheep Canyon" sign and a pile of junky old jeeps on the opposite side of the highway. There is a large boat launch area with vault toilets. Lots of space, great scenery and relatively quiet considering it's on the highway. No water, but you can fill up and dump by going into town to the Salida Visitor's Center on Highway 50 located on the right side next to Otero Cyclery (donation requested).

Here now. Nice free place. RR tracks right across the river but have yet to have a train pass. Highway 'noise' not bad at all. The private rv park up the road has the same highway noise, but CHARGE A LOT! Close to Salida, a quaint little town! 1 PBS channel on TV, 4G on Verizon Jetpack, good signal on Verizon cell phone, too. Check out the hot springs indoor public pool (and showers!) Dump station is closed permanently at C of C. Refers us to waste management facility right near this campsite. Potable water available for free at C of C still.

We stayed here early Sept 2012. The other posts mention a pile of scrap Jeeps. Those are gone. Just past the last RV park start looking on right side of road for a brown BIGHORN SHEEP CANYON SIGN. Entry to BLM land will be on left about 200 ft. past the sign. Nice place to stay. Our spot was right on river bank. Road noise wasn't a problem. Some TV.

We stayed here overnight in June 2011 and it was fine. Only a few firepits and I saw one picnic table. There is a bathroom at the end of the road on the left (we did not use it). Beautiful river and lots of Bighorns. Only problem we had was with dogs wandering loose through the CG (owners not in sight).

The Salida Chamber of Commerce on RT 50 has a free (donation) dump and clean water for RV's. We used it twice! Gave $5 donation once.

Stayed there 8/2010. Its just east of town on HWY50. Its right before the pay campground. Its on the same side as the river. Plenty of space. We pulled our travel trailer into a spot with a fire pit. It was quite at night. Would stay there again
