For those who travel with horses, you’ll be pleased to know that there are Colorado campgrounds that welcome the entire camping party. Here’s a sampling.
Grand Lake’s Winding River Resort offers a variety of choices. There are RV sites already set up with the corrals, or you can make other arrangements for, perhaps, a vacation rental cabin with a nearby corral. The resort also has horses, making it handy for those in your party who don’t have their own. Aside from riding trails, the resort offers pony rides, hay rides, and even sleigh rides.
Palisade Basecamp RV Resort is located about a mile from designated horse riding trails. While the park itself isn’t directly set up with stalls or fields, they have neighbors who might host your horses. Contact the park to discuss possible arrangements for pasturing horses while you stay. We’ve been told the trails are rather spectacular.
In the Montrose area, Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply can provide guests with more information on nearby places to lodge horses and ride the trails. That note came to us from Montrose-San Juan RV Resort.
While Bristlecone Lodge in Woodland Park can’t accommodate the horses, they have guests who camp with them while they use the nearby stables for the horses. There are many trails in the area.
Outside of Colorado Springs, Falcon Meadow RV Campground allows horses if you choose a tent site. There’s a nine-mile trail nearby. The horses have to be trailered to it, though it’s only a short distance.
For those overnighting it and not needing to ride yet, Colorado Springs KOA offers horse corrals.
Happy trails to you!
