That’s fine because, at this RV campground, you can do that too. A couple of nights a week, you can enjoy some Texas Mesquite smoked BBQ - with beef brisket, pork ribs, and the famous pulled pork. But it’s not just BBQ that this KOA can offer; each and every day in the summer, their on-site cafe serves a scrumptious breakfast too.So, what can you do when camping at Ouray KOA?

You’ll also have lots of different day trips to choose from, like the one from Ouray to Silverton - both old mining towns. You can even tour the old mines; it really is an action-packed area.If you need to rest your sore muscles after a day filled with adventure, there’s both a hot tub and a sauna for anyone who’s RV camping at Ouray KOA where you can sit down and really relax. If you’d prefer to chill out in your motorhome rental, you can plug in the music system and kick back - but just a reminder, the max amp is 50.It's doubtful that you’ll feel homesick in this mini paradise, but if you do feel like telling your friends and family all about what camping with an RV is like, there is Wi-Fi, and if you want to buy them (or yourself) presents, you can roam around the gift shop and camp store. After all, you can never have too many snacks.

The Great Outdoors

At Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, you’ll be met by views that will make you rub your eyes in disbelief; the Gunnison River has had millions of years to work itself downward, creating a fantastic, vertical wilderness in the process. Hike on trails that are between a one and five-mile round trip, go on a scenic drive in that campervan rental, or stay late so you can see the amazing night sky. For any daredevils who have decided to book an RV in Ouray County, you can try to make your way down to the river. Watch out though, the hikes are extremely strenuous, and there are no marked trails. You can also go rock climbing, or you could just sit back and enjoy the view. The choice is all yours.If you’re up for seeing the Gunnison River from a different (lower) angle, hop into that RV rental currently parked at Ouray KOA and head toward Curecanti National Recreation Area. You can visit reservoirs, rent boats, and go fishing - there’s a lot of salmon. If you don’t mind getting soaked, there’s swimming, water-skiing, and wakeboarding on the menu. And sailing and canoeing. You won’t have a boring moment here.You can actually leave your RV rental at Ouray KOA for this one. You see, it’s possible - even recommended - to rent a jeep at the campsite and head for the hills where you can explore ghost towns and tour the old mines, as well as get even better views of the mountains. Can that even happen?! There are some places where even the most rugged camper rentals simply cannot go; mountain hills are one of them.

Exploring the Area

Did you ever decide to go on that trip between Ouray and Silverton? Whether you did or not, you need to check out the mines. At Ouray, you can take the Bachelor Syracuse Mine Tour, where you’ll quite literally go deep into the history of the area; you'll find yourself 1,500 feet into Gold Mountain. If you need to prepare, there’s even the option of breakfast before the tour.The Silverton tour is called the Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour, and here you can ride the mine train, see live demonstrations of the original equipment, and go silver, gold, and copper panning.Very close to the Ouray KOA RV campgrounds is the incredibly charming small town of Telluride - and what a town. There are opportunities for all sorts of recreation here, like hiking, golfing, and fly fishing. And that’s just in the summer; in the winter, there’s skiing. And where there’s skiing, there’s a way to get up to the top of the mountain. Indeed, the gondola will provide you with the most amazing views on the way up - in the winter, and also in the summer.Since you’re in the area, you might as well check out the small town of Ridgway, with a whole sea of great things to see and do. There are cafés, breweries, pizza joints, and saloons, as well as a community theater, hot air ballooning, boutiques, and thrift shops. Oh, and make sure you don’t miss the museums, such as the Railroad Museum and Ouray County Ranch History Museum, to learn all about the history of the gorgeous area.Surely you can’t disagree that RV camping at Ouray KOA is a great idea, what with all the fantastic nature, recreation, and history? Didn’t think so; search for your very own motorhome rental right away.

Questions about RVs?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
