How about Rocky Mountain National Park and then south to Pikes Peak and the Colorado Springs area? There is a lot to see and do in Colorado.

If you are taking your dogs, you can forget the National Parks. Their policy is very anti-dog. They are not allowed on trails nor can they be left in your camper while you go do something. The only alternative is to kennel them.

My reco is National Forest Service. The Rosevelt National Forest just West of Ft. Collins is AWESOME. Cool at night; low humidity; great hiking. You can take your dogs with you on the trails. You will meet hardly anyone and the scenery is spectacular.

If within your travel radius, I also highly recommend the National Forest Service campgrounds in the Big Horns in Wyoming. Numerous great campgrounds. A bit more remote than Colorado IMO. We love it there.

We live in Western Colorado, one of our favorite places is Ridgeway State Park, close to the San Juans, boating, fishing, and with your motorcycles some of the best country to ride. It is cool in the summer and one area is open all winter for winter sports, also the Ouray and Silverton areas are within an hours drive or so away, where there is the hot springs pool, and some of the most beautiful country in the world in my humble opinion, and the million dollar highway 550 is breathtaking to ride. There is a 14 day limit to stay in the park, parts of the park are full hookups, and part are electric only but, has good dump station. Check it out in Colorado State Parks, also you are only four or five hours drive away from Moab Utah, also some great country to ride. Also the Grand Mesa, Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction Co where we reside, is only two hours away from Ridgeway, great winerys, lots of fresh fruit and peaches to die for in late summer. There are two very nice RV parks in Grand Junction and two state parks in Grand Junction,

Colorado has many state campgrounds that are great and one of our favorites is Steamboat Lake. We just love Rocky Mt Natl park. We usually stay at the Morraine park campground which is on the Estes Park side. We have been here for 5 yrs and the camping here is awesome!

Ouray-Telluride-Silverton and Lake City-Creede-South Fork areas and the San Juan mountains, either in the Spring or Fall for colors. We stay at the KOA north out of Ouray towards Ridgeway State Park.

Great motorcycle riding, Silver Thread Highway, etc, Great for jeeping and off-roading on both sides of The Million Dollar highway between Silverton and Ouray.

Lots of Ghost towns and abandoned mines. You'll stay busy during your stay with all the activities available.

Enjoy wherever you go!

I know all the areas you are showing, great pictures, we have stayed at the KOA there, but we perfer Rideway State Park, we also love to go to the San Luis Valley, beautiful there, and you are right there are many beautiful places to visit, we are chicken to drive Red Mountain Pass, will do it in truck or car but, not pulling our fifer. Lived in Denver for years and traveled most of the eastern parts of Co, love Rocky Mountain Park, you should check out the Grand Junction area, more of a desert but, lots to see and do, many jeep trails and such, and if you like wine some of the best!

Hey Pete ,
Were you at the Ouray KOA last year? We were there the first of August when the Cafe' was open. We have been camping there for over 12years. We normally stay in site 69 or 70 on the north side of the canal. We really enjoy driving in the San Juan mountains. Our other camping city is Leadville at SugarLoafin campground.
