2019 Forest River R-Pod, Hood River Edition
Printer Boy Group Campground is located near Turquoise Lake, in an area with plenty of recreational opportunities, including boating, fishing and hiking.
Printer Boy offers four group sites: 1 and 4 can accommodate up to 75 people; 2 and 3 can accommodate up to 35 people. Sites 3 and 4 are accessible. Each site is equipped with picnic tables, a campfire circle and grill. A centrally-located cooking shelter is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. A dump station is located just outside the campground.
The nearby town of Leadville, a historic gold and silver mining town, is worth visiting for its small town charm. Venture to Independence Pass for a scenic drive with breathtaking views of the Rockies and surrounding alpine tundra habitat. At 12,095 feet, it is one of the highest paved mountain passes in the country and marks where the Top of the Rockies National Scenic and Historic Byway crosses the Continental Divide.
The campground is situated within walking distance of the lakeshore in a forest of lodgepole pine and subalpine fir. The Mount Massive Wilderness area, a 30,540 acre stretch of primitive land is nearby. Much of the wilderness is above timberline with many alpine plant communities and permanent snowfields.
Hikers enjoy the 1.2-mile Turquoise Lake Nature Trail. The gentle path meanders through the forest and down to the shoreline of Turquoise Lake where it connects with the 6.4-mile Turquoise Lake Trail. Trail guides are available at the Turquoise Lake Trail trailhead, located at the entrance to Molly Brown Campground. On the lake, boating, sailing, canoeing and fishing are favorite activities. Anglers fish for stocked cutthroat, rainbow, brown and lake trout. A boat ramp is located nearby. The campground offers a playground, ball fields, horseshoe pits and a volleyball court. Campers must bring their own sports equipment.
From Leadville, Colorado, drive west on County Road 4 and follow signs to the Turquoise Lake Recreation Area.

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.
