The Great Outdoors

Southern Colorado was home to dinosaurs millions of years ago, and you can explore the areas where they once roamed near La Junta. The Comanche National Grassland is well known as a dinosaur site and is also home to plenty of scenic hiking trails that will take you through gently rolling hills. Another location known for dinosaur history is Vogel Canyon Recreation Area, which is half an hour's drive south of La Junta KOA and also has plenty of excellent hiking trails. You will be able to see real preserved dinosaur footprints, and it's one of the only places in the world where you can do so. There are also guided tours available that will take you to all of the dinosaur landmarks in the area.Biking is another popular activity in La Junta, and you can rent bikes in town or bring your own. The wide-open plains and bright sunshine make for an exhilarating ride. Both the Comanche National Grassland and Vogel Canyon have bike trails, but you'll find other trails in the city too, like the historic Santa Fe Trail. Just be sure to bring some water - combining the high altitude with dry air means you can get dehydrated very quickly.For something a little more laid back while you camp in an RV near La Junta, try going bird watching. The Comanche National Grasslands attract a wide variety of fowl, particularly during migration season. You might see songbirds, herons, hawks, owls, and more while visiting. If you take a short drive east to the town of Las Animas, you'll find plenty of excellent bird watching in the John Martin Reservoir State Park. You'll be surprised by how much wildlife there is to see when you book an RV in Otero County.

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.
