Description Suggest change

I believe the type of rock is a sandstone with a matrix of quartzite cobbles. I know there is one pay campground on the river closer to Carbondale, although I am sure there is free camping elsewhere. I just don't know where. I am no expert on this area, I just know it's very classic and was wanting to put it on this site with the hope others could contribute more information.

Redstone is a cute town with a great general store, and the river makes a great place to relax with a beer after climbing. There are hot springs about 2 miles upstream from town.

Getting There Suggest change

Head south on CO 133 from Carbondale.
