Colorado Winter Fun!

In Colorado, winter is a wonderful time to keep on camping! You might be surprised to learn how many campgrounds remain open to cater to winter outdoor enthusiasts.  After all, Colorado provides fabulous ways to cure cabin fever.

If you’re ready for some outdoors fun, many campgrounds welcome skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, ice skaters, snow mobilers, ice fishers, and just about any other type of winter enthusiast.

Hey, let’s not overlook day dreamers and book worms. Pour a cup of hot chocolate, snuggle under a blanket, and get lost staring at the mountains or delving into a good book, all from a cozy campsite.


Peacock Meadows Riverside RV Park, South Fork's newest RV park, caters to winter enthusiasts!

Peacock Meadows Riverside RV Park

Peacock Meadows Riverside RV Park, South Fork’s newest camping facility, was built specifically to accommodate winter campers, burying their water lines deeply into the ground. The park is enjoying its first season of welcoming winter campers. This is the closest winter campground to Wolf Creek Pass.

In additional to Wolf Creek Pass, being in the town of South Fork makes it doubly convenient for the area’s winter activities. Check out those images in the collage above because they’re from the South Fork area!

North Park Campground

North Park Campground has a fresh coat of snow! That seems to be typical every day in the winter. They’re located in northern central Colorado, near Gould, and they provide breathtaking views of the Medicine Bow Mountains and wildlife. You can take in activities from snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding and snow tubing.

Aspen Acres Campground, near Rye in the San Isabel National Forest, not only offers great access to winter fun, but after a day of working out you can lounge in overstuffed furniture near the large fireplaces. The lodge has an amazing atmosphere, and is a great place to relax with your family or friends.

The RV sites and cabins are ready for your winter activities, which include over 80 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, back-country skiing, and snowshoeing.


From the picture of this cross country skier, you can see that opportunities exist without leaving the campground!

And it’s all in easy reach from Colorado’s main population hubs, being only 25 minutes from the I-25 corridor!



High Country RV Park

Camping near Telluride is a bit of challenge for those with big rigs, so High Country RV Park has become the lodging facility of choice for many Telluride skiers and snowboarders.

RVers set up camp in Naturita, head up to the daytime activities, and return to High Country RV Park for a good night’s recovery.

Of course, you can also use your Jeep and ATVs right from the RV park, if you would rather play in the dirt than in the snow!
