When you book an RV in Teller County, you'll be near numerous parks, forests, and recreation areas. You can start your trip off right by visiting Mueller State Park, which is just a short drive north of where you will be staying. The park has 55 miles of trails where you can hike, bike, or ride horses, and 5,000 acres to go hunting, fishing, rock climbing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing depending on the time of year. There is also a campground if you feel like staying the night in your Cripple Creek RV rental. Cheyenne Mountain State Park is quite close to both Mueller State Park and Cripple Creek, so you won't need to drive very far to reach it. This fantastic park has lovely views of the mountains all around it, and some pretty special wildlife too. You can see black bears, coyotes, elk, foxes, golden eagles, cougars, and other forest critters when you hike through the area. After you are finished, you can learn about these animals in the park’s interpretive center too.If you want to do some swimming, head down towards Pueblo to Lake Pueblo State Park in the Front Range area. The park is centered around a human-made lake created by damming the Arkansas River. There are two marinas servicing the lake, along with an astonishing 60 miles of sandy coastline where you can have picnics, barbecues, parties, or simply lounge while getting a tan. Splash around in the lake, go fishing in a secluded spot, cruise around the lake in a kayak or motorized boat, and definitely do some camping along the shores of the lake, where you can see magical sunsets and dreamy night skies.One of the state’s most unusual and beautiful parks, Great Sand Dunes National Park, isn't too far away when you're RV camping at Cripple Creek KOA.

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.
