2019 Forest River R-Pod, Hood River Edition
Boyd Lake is nothing if not idyllic, with great views of the Rocky Mountains and plenty of space to spread out and enjoy nature. Thanks to its location at the center of several lakes and its close proximity to Denver, Boyd Lake State Park is also one of the most popular places for watersports in northern Colorado. If you’re looking for a great place to set up shop and need a solid northern Colorado RV campground, one of your best bets will be Boyd Lake Campground.While the Boyd Lake Campground keeps things fairly rustic, the sites do have electrical hookups, and there are showers and restrooms available. There’s also a dump station should you need to empty the tanks on your rental RV. For recreation, there are a couple of horseshoe pits and a playground, though the many lakes around its edges are always going to be the main draw when staying here with your RV rental.Boyd Lake Campground also has the advantage of being very close to Interstate 25, which will get you to all the urban amenities of downtown Denver in about an hour's drive. In roughly the same amount of time though, you could be in Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. No matter your travel preferences, you’ll find something interesting in northern Colorado and Boyd Lake Campground will be right in the middle of it.

Step just a few feet from your RV, and you’ll be in an angler or paddler’s paradise with so many lakes sitting around the campground. Don’t have your own boat or board? There are several retailers on the lake that can rent you something that will have you out on the water in no time. If you’re going fishing, just be sure to pick up the proper license at an area sporting goods store.Great hikes can be found at the Devil’s Backbone Open Space on the western edge of the city. The trails are all relatively easy, and have some excellent views of Loveland and the Rocky Mountain Front. It’s also one of the better places to bring your four-legged pals if they’ve come along for the RV camping trip.But if you’re looking for the premier natural site near Loveland, look no further than Rocky Mountain National Park. Not only does it have some of the highest paved roads in the U.S. (and some spectacular views from those mountain summits), but also an endless array of hiking trails to explore. The Bear Lake Loop is one of the more popular treks through the forest and has some excellent viewpoints of the lake. However, it’s no secret how amazing this park is, so expect crowds during the summer months, especially on the weekend.
Loveland will be the closest city to you when you rent a camper near Boyd Lake Campground, which is fortunate because there are dozens of fun things to do there. To experience a little art, check out the Benson Park Sculpture Garden just west of Boyd Lake. It plays host to the largest outdoor sculpture show in the U.S. every August, but in between, it’s just fun to look over all the cool statues. There’s also the Chapungu Sculpture Park off Interstate 25, which is a little quirkier with its 82 stone statues all carved by Zimbabwean artists; most of the artwork depicts the difficult life that many Africans have had to overcome.For a more straightforward depiction of history though, head to the Loveland Museum and Gallery when you book an RV in Larimer County. Its history exhibits are designed to replicate locations like a sugar beet factory or a log cabin and are subsequently filled with artifacts from the area and period. The gallery section of the museum is loaded with contemporary works from area artists, making it one of the best places to absorb local culture when you are getting a rental motorhome at Boyd Lake Campground.If live theater is more your thing, check out the Rialto Theater Center just south of the Loveland Museum. The company puts on some excellent productions with community members playing all of the parts. Is it Broadway? No, but you can’t beat the ticket prices, and it’s always more fun seeing a play in an intimate setting like this community theater. Also, like most towns in Colorado, Loveland has a thriving microbrewing and distillery scene too. Hit up one of the breweries on a Friday, and there’s a good chance you’ll hear some live music while you’re enjoying your pint of pale ale.

What type of RV should I choose?
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.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
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.
