The Great Outdoors

You won’t need to travel far with your RV rental to leave behind the bustle of the city. Fountain Creek Regional Park is located next door when you’re camping at Colorado Springs KOA. This 460-acre park is made up of wildlife-filled wetlands, picnic pavilions, and nature trails. It’s a popular spot for running, walking, and birdwatching. The combination of freshwater streams and ponds creates a natural oasis where tortoises are often seen swimming in the muddy water or perched on logs. Plus, you can spot reptile species, land mammals, and monarch butterflies while exploring the park. At the center of Fountain Creek Regional Park, you can also find a playground, horseshoe pits, and basketball courts as well as a nature center with natural history programs.For something a little wilder, you can drive your rental RV to Cheyenne Mountain State Park which is tucked between the magnificent Rocky Mountains and the city of Colorado Springs. The rugged foothills within the park are threaded with a vast network of mixed level hiking trails. Anyone looking for a challenge can take park in the Cheyenne Mountain State Park Trail Challenge – where participants must complete all 18 of the park’s nature trails – or test your endurance with the 100 Mile Trail Challenge. While hiking, you can look out for deer, black bears, and elk, or just enjoy views of the surrounding countryside. The XTERRA Marathon is also held within the boundaries of Cheyenne Mountain State Park.Another place you can discover while you camp in an RV near Colorado Springs is Mueller State Park in Divide. This is the perfect place to breathe in the fresh air and forget about hectic city life amid dense woodlands. You can hike through beautiful conifer-aspen forests and gorgeous mountain meadows using the 50-mile trail network. There are trails suited to visitors of all physical abilities. As you walk, remember to listen for the chipping of songbirds and look for bald eagles and land-based wildlife. Or, you can make use of the picnicking area or explore this natural haven with your own Colorado Springs camper rental. Mueller State Park offers a scenic driving route with fantastic views throughout the park. During the winter season, the park is covered in a snowy blanket, making it ideal for snowshoeing or even just building a snowman.

Explore the Area

Recreational activities aren’t the only things to do when you book an RV in El Paso County; there are also a number of urban attractions, historical sites, and family activities to fill your vacation itinerary.One of the most unique attractions in Colorado Springs is Magic Town which is located in the historic district of Old Colorado City. Created by a sculpture named Michael Garman and described by him as “a gigantic playground of the mind,” Magic Town perfectly captures the life and essence of “gritty Americana.” The 3,000-square-foot miniature city was inspired by the artist's life as a vagabond in the 1950 and 1960s. It’s made up of 1/6th-scale streets lined with handcrafted buildings, divided by dimly lit alleyways, and punctuated by lifelike miniature residents going about their daily business.Before you pack up for the end of your RV vacation, you can also take the opportunity to visit the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum in the city center. It’s housed inside the Starsmore Center for Local History and hosts over 450,000 historical items, including textiles, furnishings, and decorative arts sourced from the Pikes Peak Region.

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.
