The Great Outdoors

There is no place quite like the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, teeming with wildlife, stunning landscapes, and too many parks to name. Just north of town, you can bring your rental RV to Harvey Gap State Park, just a few miles from the KOA campground. The park is primarily known for its large, 190-acre Grass Valley Reservoir where fishing, boating, and swimming are allowed. The beaches lining the lake are quite beautiful, but the water can be frigid, even in the summertime.Vega State Park is another park centered around a lake in the mountains, with year-round camping and recreation for all. This high elevation park gets enormous amounts of snow in the winter, so people frequent it for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, and ice fishing during the colder months. Bow hunting and shotgun hunting are permitted within the park, along with biking, hiking, water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, and windsurfing. There are RV camping sites to use when you bring your Silt motorhome rental for a visit, as well as cozy rental cabins.Dinosaur National Monument is a fascinating place to see in person, named for its bounty of paleontological sites and countless fossilized remains of ancient dinosaurs. The high elevation, dry climate, and other location-related factors make it the perfect place to study dinosaurs and uncover old bones, plants, and other remains left behind by animals from hundreds of millions of years ago. Aside from the “Wall of Bones,” the archaeological sites, and the epic fossilized remains, there are stunning canyons and panoramic views to see for yourself when you arrive.When you're RV camping at Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA, you can easily reach Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, the closest national park to the campground. The park is named for the deep crevice etched into the Earth’s crust, said to be so deep that sunlight only reaches the lowest reaches of the canyon for half an hour each day. Although not as deep or as large as the Grand Canyon or other famous landmarks, few places on Earth are more mysterious or beautiful than this extraordinary place.

Exploring the City

Silt is not the most exciting town in Colorado, as it is a small mountain town with a tiny population. The lone attraction in this little community is the Silt Historical Park, allowing guests to step back in time to witness what life was once like on the treacherous, wild frontiers of America. This lifelike village has artifacts from the Old West, as well as historic buildings like an old schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, and some rustic cabins. Take a tour through the old general store and see the origins of Silt back when it was a small mining town in the mountains.Over in Glenwood Springs, you can enjoy some resort-like attractions in one of the state’s most popular vacation hubs. Glenwood Springs is known for its massive hot springs, built into the shape of swimming pools which you can even enjoy during the cold winter months. Glenwood Springs Adventure Park has some heart-pounding roller coasters and amusement rides, as well as delicious cafes and snack bars, laser tag, 4D movie screenings, and tours of the famous Glenwood Caverns. People of all ages seem to appreciate this fun-filled activity space. If you like skiing or snowboarding, places like Aspen, Copper Mountain, Vail, and Breckenridge are not too far away.History lovers can take a trip to the Frontier Historical Museum for more information and insight into the life of the first pioneers. Antiques, old photographs, and memorabilia from the 19th century are on display, regarding the many criminals and lawmen who made the area their home. Native American skirmishes and gold rushes are also discussed in this interesting learning environment, so don’t miss out while exploring the area with an RV rental near Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA.

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.
