MoonStream Vintage Campground offers a unique camping / glamping experience at the base of the mountains in beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado. Come stay just minutes away from all of the hiking, biking, rafting, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling that the Collegiate Peaks and the San Isabel National Forest have to offer. We have boutique RV sites and in-place Airstream staycations available nightly, weekly, or monthly. All of our sites have full hook-ups, with their own fire rings, picnic tables, and incredible views - yet we offer something different from the typical RV Park: spacious sites set back from your neighbors, free wifi to all sites, quiet creekside pathways and picnic areas for your enjoyment, and two large communal fire pits for all of your ‘mallow-roasting and campfire singalong needs. We pride ourselves on creating a camping experience like that from days gone by - emphasizing community, comfort, and outdoor enjoyment above all. While we don’t offer such amenities as cable TV or laundry, we hope you’ll appreciate the unique magic of MoonStream's vintage camp experience!


Area Tips

MoonStream Vintage Campground is located at the base of Cottonwood Pass just 5 minutes west of Buena Vista, CO.

The Arkansas River, just minutes to the east, offers some of the best whitewater in the country. Check out our friends at The Adventure Company ( for all your river adventures.

With the 4-mile Recreation Area just east of the Arkansas River and numerous other mountain-top routes to the west, we are a mountain biker's and off-roader's paradise. And in the winter time, Cottonwood Pass closes to automobiles and opens up to snowmobiles.

To wind down, Cottonwood Hot Springs is just 5 minutes to the west, and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort is 15 minutes to the south. Cottonwood Lake (no motors allowed), 15 minutes up the pass, has great fishing – though we’ve caught brown trout in the creek right here on the property.

Numerous hiking trails - including the Continental Divide Trail and the Colorado Trail - can be accessed just minutes away up Cottonwood Pass, and there are trailheads for thirteen Fourteeners within a 45-minute drive (Mt. Princeton's 14,197' summit is under 4 hours from your campsite...if you hustle). In the winter, there are endless opportunities for backcountry skiing and snowshoeing. If you're into backcountry skiing or splitboarding, or want to try it out for the first time, get in touch with Buena Vista Mountain Adventures (

Upon your return to civilization, check out the bars, restaurants, and shops on Main Street or South Main in Buena Vista, or catch a showing at the Comanche Drive-In Theater just a few hundred yards up the road.

We think the best food in the valley is 50 Burger down in Salida, but if you’re looking to stay a little closer, we think Buena Vista’s best meal can be found at Wesley & Rose at the Surf Hotel. And for a night out, the Deerhammer Distillery on Main Street and Eddyline Brewery across from the library are super cool spots.
