We had a great 'quiet' weekend camping at the Rifle River campground. Usually we have to take the one and only site left if we want to camp on the river, but this weekend we had our pick. I think it was because school is still in session and everyone is waiting for school to let out and go for longer than a weekend. Whatever the reason, we loved it. This campground has two levels the upper is much larger and had only 8 campers - the lower we like better because you can get right on the river(if you're lucky) and there were only 4 campers there (including us).
Is this not the most peaceful setting?
There were a few canoers on the river Saturday, but it was a little cool. There was also a storm later in the afternoon. Sunday there were a few too, but really quiet still.
There were 3 other campers on this level, but none were beyond us. Can you say quiet? You can see how crowded it usually is if you look at all the picnic tables. They really pack them in on a hot summer day.
