The Great Outdoors

Any part of Colorado is suitable for an epic voyage in the great outdoors, and Arkansas Valley is no exception. When you rent an RV near Sugarbush Campground, you’ll be within driving distance of incredible state and national parks, campgrounds, lakes, and towering mountains that you can climb. Spinney Mountain State Park and Eleven Mile State Park are easy enough to find, less than an hour's drive north of Sugarbush Campground. Eleven Mile State Park has a massive lake, great for swimming, boating, and some of the state’s best fishing. Catch pike, trout, or salmon at this mesmerizing state park, and cook it up for dinner over a nice campfire. Spinney Mountain State Park also has a lake of its own, with great fishing and swimming and some dreamy stargazing at night.If you head down from the mountains into Pueblo, Lake Pueblo State Park can provide you with an array of entertainment opportunities. The park has over 10,000 acres of land, with 60 miles of shore surrounding Pueblo Lake. This massive reservoir is a popular destination for people from Colorado Springs and Pueblo. The lake is great for sailing, motorboating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and tubing during the summertime.Several national parks are scattered throughout Colorado, and with Sugarbush Campground’s central position in the state, many of them are equally easy to get to. Rocky Mountain National Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park are all equidistant from the mountain RV park, making it a tough decision unless you have time to visit them all. If you only have time to visit one, Great Sand Dunes National Park is the closest of the bunch, known for its towering dunes in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. Guests can visit the on-site visitor center, camp out under the enchanting night skies, trek through the park, or surf down the dunes on a sandboard for maximum fun.

City Sightseeing

Salida is the nearest town to Sugarbush Campground, just 15 minutes’ drive away. Don’t expect a massive city like Denver when you arrive. The town is quite charming and pleasant; quaint, historic homes, art galleries, boutiques, dining establishments, and breweries make up this idyllic community, and there is even a museum in town. Learn a thing or two at the Salida Museum, a depository of artifacts and objects recounting the fascinating history of this Old West mining town.Pueblo is a larger city over in the Front Range that you can visit for more sightseeing as well. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo is an iconic feature in the heart of town, lined with restaurants and shops of all types. This lovely meeting point is a fantastic place to take a stroll when the weather is nice.Plenty of museums can be found in Pueblo, like the Rosemount Museum, housed in a gorgeous Victorian mansion built in 1893. The Pueblo Heritage Museum and the Pueblo Railway Museum both tell the story of the town and its formation when the first railways arrived in Colorado. The heritage museum explains that Pueblo was once the saddle making capital of the world, with a complex history regarding the westward heading pioneers and the Native Americans they would clash with.

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.
