Camping is a great way to connect with nature, especially in our beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. There is excellent camping nearly everywhere in Colorado, with some of the best campsites to be seen. Colorado has a good mix of paid developed campgrounds and also underdeveloped primitive sites that are free. Some are good for tent-only camping while others are great for full-sized travel trailers or fifth-wheels.
Where are you most likely to spot rare birds in the Rocky Mountains? Which types of wildflowers might you find above tree line? Which 14ers are best for beginners? Join us for a three-part series, in which we will explore the details of Colorado's natural magnificence.
