Premier Riverfront Facilities

Utilize the finest riverside campground facility and private put-in on the banks of the Arkansas River!

Noah's Ark Riverside Basecamp

Located just south of Buena Vista, Colorado, the Noah’s Ark Riverside Basecamp is beautifully situated on an 11-acre campground. It’s the ideal location to begin your Colorado adventure! 

All of our Browns Canyon Rafting trips launch from the private put-in on our property – eliminating the inconvenience of shuttling to a public put-in location. You will check-in at our lodge, which contains a retail store, snack bar, equipment rental area, and a full service kitchen.

Camping at Noah's

Stay at our scenic riverfront campground and play volleyball or go fishing! Our 1/2 dome, weatherproof tents are perfect for housing 10-15 participants and can be divided to accommodate a co-ed group. If you would prefer, you can pitch your own tent at one of our tent sites. There are fire rings throughout the campground for late night group bonding & star gazing. Bring your own sleeping bags and pads.

All of the necessary amenities, including showers and bathroom facilities, are close to the campsites for your convenience.

Food Service

Noah’s Ark’s licensed food service program, coupled with our covered riverside pavilion, provide a service unique in the industry. The kitchen staff prepares fresh, homemade meals for all of our full and extended day trips, as well as custom meals on our property. Groups of all sizes can add a meal before or after their trip. 

Sample menu items include cinnamon rolls, pancakes, and eggs for breakfast; fresh deli sandwiches and tortilla wraps for lunch; BBQ chicken and fajitas for dinner.
