Welcome from Pennsylvania.

I would suggest taking you "new" Rockwood for a short shakedown camping trip near where you live. This will allow you to determine what are your "must haves" and nice to have. I agree with Wobbles to initially stock your trailer from your house. Later you can buy those items you find you use the most in the trailer.

Welcome from a Colorado Springs couple who are diehard boondock campers. If you are interested in getting away from it all and exploring the back country, give us a holler.

There are boondock areas as close as Rampart Range and some need spots near Round Mountain, Marshal Pass, Cottonwood pass, Tincup, Taylor Park, etc...etc...

All you need is a generator, a minimum of 2 RV deep cycle batteries, and a sense of adventure.

BTW, if you run up to Briargate to say Hi to my grandkids, say Hi to me also. I'm here too! Granddaughter's high school graduation is tomorrow.

I'm with dblr.........need to find some spots around here for future trips. We did the Royal Gorge train ride yesterday and saw a bazillion campers coming out of somewhere. State Park around Canon City I suppose, not sure.

With the big rig truck I tend to avoid the state parks. Probably the best campgrounds but also the tightest

Really?

Our state parks are quite spacious. Way more than any private campground.
