Soaring jagged peaks surround you when you book an RV in Alamosa County and take your rental motorhome to Alamosa KOA. Even better, you’ll be within striking distance of the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve and two scenic railroads. At the campground, you'll find full hookup sites up to 100' long with 50/30/20 amp service; water/electric sites with 30/20 amp service; and electric sites only with 30/20 service. A few of the campervan rental sites have shade and fire rings, while a good number have views of the 14,345-foot Mt. Blanca, the fourth tallest mountain in Colorado.You don't have to travel to town if you're looking for a pizza fix as they can make you one and deliver it to your campsite. If you're looking for other treats, the snack bar is a good place to visit. On weekends, if you don't feel like preparing breakfast, settle into a pancake breakfast instead (available after Memorial Day). In the summer, cool off during the ice cream socials, and during your stay, check in with the front desk for any stargazing or astronomy interpretive events.RV camping at Alamosa KOA gives you access to an array of entertainment options after a hard day of adventuring. Connect to Wi-Fi to keep people back home updated on your whereabouts. Soak your sore joints in the heated outdoor swimming pool, open early May to early September. Burn more calories at the basketball court, horseshoe pit, or with a bike rental, or simply enjoy foosball at the recreation hall. Let the children loose at the playground and your beloved pet at the dog park. There's also an event tent for large family and friend gatherings. If it's a gathering around a campfire, there's firewood too. Before you set off to the great beyond, check if you need propane. You can refuel at the campground before leaving town.

The Great Outdoors

Rent a camper near Alamosa KOA, and you'll be less than an hour's drive from the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve, with light brown sand contrasting dramatically with the craggy snow-capped peaks of the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Considered the tallest sand dunes in North America, the dunes, reaching heights up to 700 feet, make ideal playgrounds for sand boarding and sand sledding.Like the experience of feeling getting lost? Explore the trail-less 30-square-mile dune field in the early hours to avoid the suffocating mid-day heat. Or, take your Alamosa camper rental here after dark to marvel at the bed of glittering lights high above you or walk the dunes under the light of a full moon.When camping at Alamosa KOA during the spring and fall migrations (mid-March and mid-October), you’re well-placed to witness tens of thousands of sandhill cranes pass through the San Luis Valley. Outside of these peak birding seasons, other species of water birds like pelicans, loons, and herons, along with a few species of raptors who dominate the landscape in winter, flock to the more than 100,000-acre Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge. Also watch out for the refuge's non-feathered residents that include deer, elk, and porcupines.Railfans wouldn't want to miss going on a rail journey through parts of Colorado that few people get to see. Leave your rental RV in Alamosa and embark on a journey back through time. Both built in the late 19th century, coal-fired Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad trains (departing from nearby Antonito, CO and arriving at Chama, NM) take you through high desert, steep passes, and deep gorges. Rio Grande Scenic Railroad trains (leaving from Alamosa) take you to a time when Colorado was unspoiled, through mountain valleys, passes, and historic western towns.

Exploring the City

Camp in an RV near Alamosa and soak up its small-town charm on a walking tour of the downtown area. Admire the architectural trends – late Victorian, Mission Revival, and Art Deco, among others – that the country, as represented in this little corner of Colorado, has embraced since the late 19th century. Some of the oldest landmarks in Alamosa are the 1882 public school building, the 1886 original post office site, and the 1887 Alamosa Masonic Hall.To get a feel for the life and times of the county, visit the San Luis Valley Museum to view exhibits on frontier costumes worn in the 1860s, Indian artifacts, and a traditional trading post. Railroading memorabilia is also on display along with farming and ranching tools and implements of the early settlers. The museum also dedicates a memorial wall for their veterans alongside displays of military uniforms from both WWI and WWII.Find an RV rental near Alamosa KOA for a cultural and historical exploration of the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area encompassing more than 3,000 square miles of south-central Colorado. With so much ground to cover, decide how to best experience this land – once home to bands of Native Americans – depending on your interests. There is a spiritual tour, a museum tour, and a mission church tour, among the many tours on offer. Don’t skip San Luis in Costilla County, Colorado’s oldest town. Visit the heritage area’s office in Alamosa to help you put together an itinerary. Before heading off into the horizon, don’t forget to refuel and pick up supplies at the handful of gas stations and grocery stores in town.Colorado is huge and has so much to offer; you may be overwhelmed with where to go first.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
