  • This large park has a number of components to it, including an inland playground. The portion I am reviewing consists of a bridge across the river, hiking on the far side, a place to put in small wate...  more »
  • We stayed at the Surf Hotel and Chateau right on the river. It was comfortable and inviting. The food was world class, and the staff was accommodating to our large group. Would recommend this stay aga...  more »
  • We stopped by the park while exploring BV. There was a man with his son fishing, many others riding bikes or just standing in the refreshing chilly river on a hot day. Very active area with clean rest...  more »

  • We just happened upon the hiking trails here as we discovered Buena Vista for the first time. It was a nice way to spend an hour on a Sunday morning. The trails are easy, clean, and have pretty views of the river and the Mosquito Ridge mountains beyond. Very pretty, historic town. I bet the river is really rushing in the spring but it was nice to know we could still do a short hike in the winter! Lots of people out with the same idea too, but the trails weren't overcrowded at all. Would recommend!
  • There's a great set of hiking trails the Arkansas River and the bridge over it are beautiful there are some steps 4 running and there are very clean bathrooms however after it gets below a certain temperature the bathrooms are closed to prevent freezing
  • Must stop on scenic by way in quaint, friendly Buena Vista. Features world class rapids plus nearby access to a wide variety of dining, shopping and services. Aso has groomed hiking, biking and walking designated trails. The bridge is a mandatory photo opportunity for shutter bugs and dogs love to fetch in the eddies just be aware of docking rafts. River is seasonally dangerous so professional help is strongly advised at high CSF and though capable offers no warranty from death or injury.
  • Great place to hang out, even if you're not into kayaking. Nice Riverside trails, great biking, good restaurants. Fun place to hang out with the family and picnic. Tons of neat, local businesses
  • Beautiful place for having family picnic. Have some play area for kids too n picnic tables with grill. Toilets were messy n were not in good shape though
