Guess it depends on where you go, but I've come across several rattlesnakes in my 2 years in Colorado, all on the front range. But, like bears, they aren't aggressive unless you surprise one or act stupid around it.

We have stayed at 7th Ranch in MT. next to Custer's last stand
a couple of times, nice RV Park, free Ice Cream at check-in.
Same with Chris's Camp in Spear Fish SD never seen any,
snakes, or Bears.

Same near Rollins MT at the Big Sky RV Resort & Campground,
no snakes or bears but a great Water park next door, I take it
back, they had big Wood Bears at the entrance to the water
park

As someone stated you make enough noise you will never
see either, never be quit walking a path or leave tasty
treats out on your picnic table and you not have to worry
about them.

An above all

I now dry camp and backpack with a .45 and bear spray.

Thank you we travel with our 20 LB cavalier. we were thinking that we would have to keep him close

No snakes or bears?

Don't come down here. Snakes, bears, mt. lions, hogs, mosquitoes the size of turkeys, turkeys (!!), coyotes, bobcats, every poisonous snake in N. America, and a huge pile of ne'er do wells.

But we carry............

and we have liquid water year round, and mountains and prairies and few people and..........

well.......it's yin and yang.

Many if not all of the state parks in CO have leash laws, and several do not allow dogs on the hiking trails. Might want to look into that before you go.
