Fish in the Arkansas River when there arent too many rafters, or fish in Cottonwood Lake or mountain streams. The Arkansas River, 3/4 mile west, is a noted brown trout fishery. Dozens of creeks, streams, lakes and hundreds of smaller beaver ponds offer quality rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout fishing. Easy river and lake access is available at the end of East Main Street in Buena Vista and at Cottonwood Lake.

Ruby Mountain, about 3 miles south of KOA is a close place to find gems and especially quartz. Antero Mountain (14,000 foot peak) for mountain climbing rock hounds has aquamarine crystals.
Hike into the National Forest from camp or hike to the top of any of the seven 14,000 foot peaks that are easily seen from camp.

"Spectacular mountain views and a rustic feel sold us on the campground- they'll sell you on staying here!!!"
Dom & Helen Burns had been looking for a campground to purchase for two years and two fell through back home in New Hampshire. Dom had worked often in Colorado- so they decided to look at properties in Colorado and found Buena Vista KOA. They fell in love with the area and hope you will too!!
Activities available include white water rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, and fly fishing. They said the campground is ideal for anyone seeking a fun, natural experience.
Delivery of firewood and any other needs are provided so the camper has an enjoyable stay. Cook shack serving breakfast is available during the summer season as well as trail guides.
