4 places to park your motorhome near Denver

denver moraine

Denver is one of America’s most exciting destinations. Colorado’s capital city has many exciting arts, culture and sports attractions. It’s also surrounded by a beautiful landscape of snow-capped mountains.

When you book your next trip to the city and hire a motorhome from Denver Airport and park it at one of these camping grounds.

Moraine Park Campground
This campground is set amongst pine forest in the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain National Park (pictured), which is just over 100km from Denver. Many people head out here for a day trip in the summertime, but it’s a shame to not spend at least a night or two in this beautiful wilderness. For about $20 a night, you’ll have access to incredible views 2,4800m above sea level. It’s the national park’s only year-round campground.

Lakeside Caravan Park
The name says all you need to know about the location of this caravan park. Except, the exciting thing is you’re amongst five tranquil fishing lakes! This means you’ll find peace and quiet no matter which direction you set off in. The site offers hire boats and various water sports. If that’s not entertainment enough for you, then be glad to know the park even has its own cinema and WiFi.

Buena Vista Koa
The view that’s waiting for you at this campsite will leave you breathless. Wake up each morning to a panorama of five 4,000 metre high peaks. You’ll be able to park your motorhome only a short distance from the Arkansas River, which weaves its way through these scenic valleys. Enjoy a range out outdoor activities, including hiking trails, visiting ghost towns and rafting.

Rainbow Lakes Campground
About two hours from Denver is the breathtakingly beautiful Rainbow Lakes Campground. You’ll find many campers making the most of this seriously under-rated site. The surrounding peaks offer some of the best hiking in the country, but just make sure you’re well-prepared. The moderate Rainbow Lake Trail also showcases postcard perfect views.
