Now that summer is here it’s time to get the RV ready for some (comfortable) outdoor fun along the Western Slope. You don’t have to travel too far away from Grand Junction to find some excellent RV camping spots either.
There are tons of campgrounds and RV parks near Grand Junction and here are some of the top spots.
This highly reviewed KOA campground is conveniently located off Highway 50 and comes packed with amenities. There is a swimming pool, outdoor movie theater, playground, mini-golf course, game room, Wi-Fi, and more.
In addition to the RV sites, there are also tent sites and cabins that are available to rent. Additionally, because this is a family-run campground, the friendly atmosphere will make your stay even more enjoyable.
This is the closest full-service RV Park to the Colorado National Monument, and everything from tents to 95-foot pull-throughs are accommodated. There’s Wi-Fi, a pool and hot tub, laundry facilities, a dog run area, and picturesque views.
Monument RV Resort is also across the street from our next top spot, which is ideal if you want to enjoy swimming and fishing.
If you want to be close to the water, head over to this state park. You can book online to ensure you have all of the electrical hookups you need, and the park is located off I-70 near Palisade. Just be sure to book your site ahead of time during the busy summer months, as space fills up fast.
If you’re able to visit during the off-season, the park is far less crowded.
Offering one of the best RV-friendly campgrounds near the Grand Mesa, this RV Park allows for easy access to the Mesa’s pristine lakes and trails. The spots can accommodate RVs under 50 feet and there’s even a general store if you need to stock up on supplies.
There are only 24 spots, which gives the park a cozy feeling, but it also means it pays to book ahead during the busy summer months. The best way to book and learn more is to call: (970) 268-5651.
For another option close to the Grand Mesa that can handle big rigs up to 75-feet long, Aspen Trails is an excellent option.
The friendly campground even has a family-friendly cafe and soda fountain if you need a break from cooking your own meals. The cafe is also an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, complete with hand-rolled waffle cones. If you’d rather cook, try one of these easy-to-prepare camping meals before heading out to explore the Grand Mesa.
