We ended up staying here when the NFS campgrounds on Chalk Creek were booked and we didn't know where other park sites were. As privately run campgrounds go: I would say this one is average? The tent sites are maybe 10x25 with parking for 1 1/2 vehicles. A picnic table and a fire ring. Running water and a wash station... More

Great place to base camp our vacation. A short trip to both Salida & Buena Vista. Operators are very informative and friendly. Not a large campground, great showers but cost 50 cent for 3 minutes. A small campground and we found it to be very quiet as well but we were up on the hill and not down by the... More

Any time we're in Buena Vista, CO we try to stay at Chalk Creek Campground. The facilities here are nice and clean, the surroundings are pretty, especially near the creek that runs alongside the property, the people are so friendly, and they basically have everything we could need here. Even though it's a few minutes outside of town, it's worth... More

This was a great campground for our recent 2-night stay. They do charge for their showers, which was annoying, and the spaces along the creek were too short to accommodate us without disconnecting our car trailer, but it was worth it to be able to sit literally on our picnic table's bench and cast a line into Chalk Creek. My... More

This is a very clean and well maintained campground that is children friendly. With that said, BEWARE, one reason it is so well maintained is because they must be making money hand over fist. SHOWERS COST $.50 for each 3 mins!!!!!!!!! Coffee is available for $2.00 per Keurig cup!!!!! This is AFTER your camping fee ($25 for tents which is... More

My family and I have been coming to this campground for over 15 years. We come out every other year or so to visit family in Denver, raft the Arkansas and camp. I recommend this property to everyone I know that is headed to this area. The people are wonderful, the property is gorgeous and with the updgrade on the... More

We bought a RV site for power even though we were pitching a tent. We did some research and picked site number 20 which the proprietors will tell you in a heartbeat that it is the best site of the lot. Right on the creek which is a lovely clear and fast flowing beauty. Went to sleep both nights with... More

We never experienced the actual campsite because we never authorized to book any of the sites. They charged us for a group site and when we found out we cancelled and they charged us a $25 cancellation fee on a site we never actually booked. I called and asked if the site was available and it was already taken so... More

This RV park has two sections. One is pretty much a typical RV park. Gravel full hook-up sites, most without trees. The bath house in this section is fantastic although the showers are coin operated and they ran out of toilet paper late in the evening - the only negatives from my perspective. The views of the surrounding mountains are... More

You cannot beat Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park for great service, campsites and location. We discovered them this summer while camping for the first time in the Buena Vista/Salida area. After camping at another campground we brought our trailer here and stored it for two weeks rather than taking it home. For a very reasonable fee, the staff brought... More
