Colorado has something to offer every season. In the spring and summer, the Rocky Mountains have miles of scenic trails for hiking and biking, as well as rivers for fishing and whitewater rafting. By fall, the golden aspen trees make Colorado one of the most beautiful places to watch fall foliage. In the winter, the snowy mountains make the state a winter wonderland for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing.
Luckily, several RV campgrounds are open all year close to popular destinations. Here’s what you can find at each one of these year-round parks.
1. Ouray RV Park & Cabins
The scenic Ouray RV Park & Cabins sits along the Uncompahgre River in southwestern Colorado. They have six types of RV sites, surrounded by beautiful mountain views just a short drive from the quaint shops, restaurants, and galleries in downtown Ouray.
They have full hookup RV sites with varying views of the surrounding landscape. Some are right along the river and extra wide to accommodate big rigs. They have both pull-throughs and back-ins; some amenities are seasonal while others are available all year. They also have fully furnished riverfront cabins to rent and a cafe & steakhouse that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The area is known for its many outdoor activities including fishing, Jeeping, mountain biking, hiking, and boating. Ouray Hot Springs is only a 1/3 mile walk from the park and it’s open all year long.
2. Dakota Ridge RV Park
Two of Colorado’s most popular attractions, Denver and Rocky Mountain National Park, are within a day’s drive of Dakota Ridge RV Park. The RV park is located just 20 minutes west of Denver with easy access to all of the metro area attractions, including some great restaurants and breweries.
The RV park has 141 full-service RV sites that are level and paved including both pull-throughs and back-ins. Several amenities are available to visitors including free WiFi, daily trash pick-up service, and a heated outdoor pool and hot tub (open seasonally).

3. Prospect RV Park
Another park on the outskirts of Denver is Prospect RV Park in the suburb of Wheat Ridge. They are open year-round and can accommodate all types of RVs from motorhomes to fifth wheels and trailers.
The RV park is close to Denver but still offers peace and quiet right next to Prospect Park. They offer full hook-up sites as well as partial hookups. Visitors can also make use of the free WiFi, coin-operated laundry facility, dump station, and pet area.
4. Peacock Meadows Riverside Park & Campground

The South Fork area is surrounded by national forests with nearby activities ranging from mountain biking and snow sports to golfing and OHV riding.
5. The Last Resort
The Last Resort can be found south of Pagosa Springs, just off Highway 84, along the Blanco River in the heart of the San Juan Mountains.
