Buena Vista Area Campgrounds
Railroad Bridge campground is an ideal spot for those wanting to spend a weekend on the Arkansas River. However, if that is not on your wish list, Railroad Bridge may be one to avoid. It tends to be very crowded with rafting tours as this area acts as a take-out for one white water rafting run and a put-in for 2 others. The trees offer very little privacy for the 14 camp sites which are situated very close together.
Picnic tables, tent pads, fire rings and grills are provided. Facilities include Vault toilets and changing rooms and a boat ramp is located on site. Be prepared to pack out your trash as pick-up service is not available.
