Camping In Colorado

As dedicated RVers with little interest in winter sports, there is a whole season in Colorado that is completely lost to us. But in the spring, summer, and fall, Colorado is meant for outdoor living.

What Colorado isn’t meant for is urban camping. One of these worst nights we experienced while traveling was spent leapfrogging from Walmart to Walmart along Highway 70—desperately searching for a lot that allowed overnight parking. Even relatively low density counties banned overnight parking. By the time we reached a truck stop where we could sleep in Grand Junction we were weary and disillusioned with the entire state.
