For our money, the best camping in the United States is in Colorado. The state of Colorado has it all: 41 State Parks, over 20 million acres of Federal Forest Land, and thousands of private campsites. The state is large enough to avoid the crowds and really immerse yourself in the wilderness.
Why we love Colorado!
Colorado has something for everybody! Whether you are an experienced camper looking to climb one of Colorado’s 54 peaks over 14,000 feet or if you are taking you kids out for their first camping trip: there is a campsite to fit your every need. There is no shortage of anything from tents to cabins to yurts or RV parks.
What to remember when camping in Colorado!
Remember to drink lots of water! It is really easy to get dehydrated for those of us who aren’t used to the high altitude. Remember to take it slow and make sure you give your body time to adjust to the mile high feeling!
One more Tip!
Remember to pack extra sunscreen. Camping in Colorado may not feel like a red-hot Florida beach day, but the sun can have a similar effect!
Our Favorite Tent Camping Spot
Run by the state park service, Lake Pueblo offers some of the best camping in America. This park offers safety (all 400 campsites are patrolled) as well as the feeling that you are out in the middle of the wilderness. And if you get the urge to eat something not cooked over the campfire, downtown Pueblo is just a short drive away!
Our Favorite RV Park
Pikes Peak RV Park
Our favorite RV Park is a short drive from our Pueblo County and Park county properties. Pikes Peak RV Park offers 55 pull-through sites with water, electric, and sewage hookups. The site even offers free wireless internet. It’s far from roughing it, and at just 5 miles from Pikes Peak, this RV Park is tough to beat!
