After hiking the north rim at Black Canyon of the Gunnison, we headed farther north towards Aspen but on the way there we stopped at a place I had come across by accident: Big B’s Fruit Company in Hotchkiss, CO. I was looking for potential camp grounds near Aspen and found Big B’s. I swear this place has everything imaginable. We did not camp here and unfortunately we did not need fresh produce on this trip but both are available at Big B’s.
All the things:
- Camping – No hook-ups but they do have water to refill tanks.
- Open 7 days a week
- Local Hard Cider
- Dog Friendly
- Live Music
The main building is where visitors check-in to camp, it also has a small store and the café. The food is simple but good: a variety of sandwiches, burritos, tacos, and salads. We had their Sangria Cider with our lunch and it was delicious. Dogs are allowed on the patio but not in the store, there is a window to order from if you are with your four-legged companion. The patio area also has a few swings that were quite popular with the kids that were there.
All in all this was a wonderful stop on our Colorado road trip. We did not have a chance to camp here but from the reviews I read it is good. Big B’s isn’t fancy but it has good food, good cider and all the amenities that you might need. Have you ever visited Big B’s and camped? If yes, I’d love to know what you though. Leave no trace and safe travels.

I’d love to try some next time. We did get some of their lemonade for the road and it was delicious!
