Discover Crested Butte

One of Colorado’s best-kept secrets, Crested Butte is one of the most amazing little mountain towns you could ever hope to visit during vacation. No matter the time of year, summer or winter, Crested Butte is an exciting hub for recreational activity and fun.

Crested Butte is known for its ski mountains, epic rock climbing, mountain biking, and of course its breathtaking subalpine flora that makes Crested Butte the “Wildflower Capital of Colorado”. The quaint main drag of town consists of trendy restaurants, breweries, and distilleries, so the dining is first class. This little resort town in the mountains is much cozier and more inviting than its larger counterparts like Aspen and Telluride and has avoided intense development to retain its small-town vibe. Throughout the year there are several town-wide events and celebrations like the 4th of July Festivities, the Crested Butte International Film Festival, and the Crested Butte Music Festival. No matter what time of year it is, there is no wrong time to book an RV in Crested Butte and breathe in the Rocky Mountain air.

Crested Butte is very much known for its proximity to several forests, mountains, rivers, lakes, and other natural recreation areas so it's no secret that most people visit the town in search of these hidden gems. Curecanti National Recreation Area can be found to the south when you rent an RV in Crested Butte and is definitely worth a visit. The Gunnison River flows right through this amazing recreation area and it is considered a major boating and fishing destination in the Rocky Mountains. There are several visitor centers, marinas, and campgrounds for you and your Crested Butte camper rental to enjoy as well as hundreds of paths that are perfect for hiking to the top of mountains or mountain biking around the area.

There are swimming docks, beach areas, marinas, and campsites for you to stay in with your Crested Butte motorhome rental at the state park.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is without a doubt a can’t-miss attraction for those vacationing near Crested Butte, with some of the most stunning natural monoliths you can possibly imagine.
