Buena Vista Area Campgrounds

Collegiate Peaks Campground

In a spruce and fir forest just west of Buena Vista lies Collegiate Peaks campground. Popular with tent and RV campers, Collegiate Peaks tends to be crowded on summer weekends. The sites are very large and spaced far enough apart to offer plenty of privacy. Climbers will enjoy the close proximity to Mount Yale, Mount Harvard and Mount Columbia, the peaks which give the campground its name. Hiking trails are nearby and you can do some trout fishing in Middle Cottonwood Creek which borders the campground. Picnic tables, fire rings and grills are provided. Facilities include Vault toilets and drinking water.
