White Water Rafting
The Arkansas River is number one in river rafting. More than 300,000 boaters took trips down the river in 1996, more than any other river in the U.S. or the world, for that matter. What makes the Arkansas River so popular are the: Number, size and technical nature of its rapids, length of season, length of river available for rafting, and unsurpassed beauty. Outfitters say the Arkansas offers more excitement per mile than any other river in the west. From family adventure to extreme adventure there is a trip waiting for you.
The Arkansas River is a noted brown trout fishery. Dozens of creeks, streams and lakes and literally hundreds of smaller beaver ponds offer quality rainbow, cutthroat and brook fishing. Colorados Division of Wildlife stocks many streams and high mountain lakes with rainbow, cutthroat and other species of trout.
Bring your pan and on a hot summer afternoon walk to the river, put your feet in the water and maybe you will find some gold. If you dont know how, just borrow our "how to video" and you will be ready in 30 minutes.

Meet Your Hosts
"Lots of our campers have known us for years. When the same customers come back, something is being done right."
In May of 1999, James and Amy Burnham made the decision to have a child. This decision became a catalyst for them to purchase a KOA campground and work from their home. At the time, Jim was an attorney, and Amy was a landscape architect - stressful careers in a fast-paced corporate world. With this particular job change, both of them could now raise a family and build relationships at the same time.
The campground is located on the river, surrounded by vast mountains, and an ideal place for a weekend away from home. Each and every customer is important to James and Amy, and their KOA is often host to reunions, parties, and other large gatherings. "A lot of our customers have known us for years," said Amy. "When the same customers keep coming back, something is being done right." As a family-oriented campground, James and Amy focus on showing their campers a fun, safe experience while treating each of them like their own family.
In her free time, Amy likes to do crafts; she enjoys working on a pottery wheel and with ceramics. James is a hunter and owner of a new Harley Davidson Fat-boy Low. They spend their winters catching up on family time with their son Thunder, and they all love to ski.
