Located across the Colorado River from Hot Sulphur Springs, Colorado, Pioneer Park and is a 20-acre day-use park and quaint campground dominated by stands of cottonwood. The campground itself is well maintained and modest with only 14 sites, no on-site potable water (available in town), no permanent restroom facilities (only portable toilets) and no RV hookups. The day-use area provides shaded picnic tables, but the park's main draw is its fishing and neighboring access to Hot Sulphur Springs Resort and Spa.

The park and campground was originally settled after the Middle Park Claim Club led by Edward Berthoud had visions for a town and resort in 1861. The hot springs were located on what was then called the Grand River (the name was changed in 1921), and with the help of William Newton Byers, founder of Denver's Rocky Mountain News, a resort and town was established by the early 1870s.

Pioneer Park and Campground is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. Call Colorado Parks and Wildlife area office at 970.725.6200 for more details.
