We debated joining the playful tubers, rafters, boogie-boarders who were splashing and laughing their way along Salida’s river. I am SO glad we decided to go for it!! It was the most fun, most exhilarating thing we did during vacay. We had far more fun on our own than whitewater rafting with an outfitter place.

Stop at Totally Tubular rental place and get either a tube or board, $15 for a half day and it includes the personal floatation vest.

We’ll be talking about this great day along the Arkansas river in downtown Salida for a long time. Great memories made!

Cool, shady, can sit on rocks. Can rent float tubes including helmet and life vest for $15 for three hours although there were none available at the time we were there. There are a few eateries around but we couldn't find a place that had water for sale so one of our group got dehydrated.

Loved this park. There is a paved walk prob around 3/4 mile great for walking or biking. It’s so pretty, we came back the next day with books and just hung out and read. There is a small outdoor venue for concerts and the like..... but with COVID, this appeared to be closed. Get out and enjoy. Would be very romantic at night too. ❤️

We enjoyed our stay in Salida, but found this RV park to be in serious need of maintenance and improvement.  Lots of tree trimming needed.  It was difficult to get our rig into our spot without being scraped by overgrown tree limbs.  The overgrown limbs also got in our way walking around. We could not use our awning due to the overgrown limbs.  The bathrooms and shower house are too far away.
It was a very long walk and felt unsafe to my wife walking by herself. Also the speed bumps were, without exaggeration, the absolute worst we've ever endured.  Too big, and not necessary.  Many parks have speed bumps, but not like these  Overall, the park needs updating.  It looks like it has seen better days in the past, and needs some basic TLC and sprucing up.  There is lots of potential there that is not being realized.  We enjoyed the nice river flowing through the property, but for the price, we expected better. This park need some TLC, updating, and some basic care.

Super fun place to go kayaking or floating. Nicely designed kayak park. It is also a nice place to walk, play in the park or relax. Walking by the river is nice. Shops and restaurants nearby.

The town often has activities scheduled here and along the river that runs by it. The walk along the river is very nice.

This was a great place for a picnic. The area is shaded and restrooms are nearby. We enjoyed the several kayakers negotiating the swift flowing river.

On this Saturday night, they had a free band. To be honest, the music was not that good but hey, it’s free.

Around the downtown, it’s just few blocks here and there. The park is next to the river which was a nice view and relaxing
