  Thousand Lakes RV Park 435 425-3500 thousandlakesrvpark.com  

Rallymasters Sandy & Steve Varley 801 641-4416 sndyvarley@yahoo.com

Capital Reef National Park is one of those less crowded but more interesting parks in the amazing labyrinths of geological wonder of southern Utah.  In the valley, the Fremont River provides irrigation to generations of fruit trees from a much earlier historic settlement. There’s a scenic paved drive out from the visitor center leading to great hiking trails. Giant monoliths rise from the desert floor in North Valley, accessed via jeep trails, and many more back country jeep trails even further out to more fascinating arches and such. The hike to the “Waterpocket Fold” is worth the trip by itself, but there is oh so much more. And the RV Park provides the perfect shady oasis, with stars at night close enough to touch.

14-19 JUNE-DENVER/LITTLETON,CO

Chatfield Lake State Park, Loop D 800-244-5613 

Rallymasters Joan & Jim Glasmann 303-870-2964 jim_glasmann@msn.com

Bill & Bev Eckel 505-833-1569 bbeckel_2007@yahoo.com

Reservations required! Can book up to 6 months in advance at cpwshop.com/camping. Recommend you do so on December 15th!  If you’ve never been fortunate enough to tour Denver area, here’s your chance! Sitting at the eastern edge of the Rockies, their majestic “fourteeners” towering above, Denver offers the perfect blend of big city adventures and nature’s playground as its backyard. Take the fun train to the 16th Street downtown open-air mall chockfull of sidewalk cafes & entertainment & clever stores, and play one of the several pianos up and down the street. Drive the only paved road that goes to the top of a 14ers, Mt Evans, to see wildflowers & herds of mountain goats.  Visit the outdoor amphitheater in Red Rocks Park, and stay for the fun hiking trails. And so much more!

15-20 JULY– TAOS, NM

image7

Taos Valley RV Park 575 758-4469 www.taosrv.com 

Rallymasters Carl & Linda Threatt 256 656-9529 clthreatt@gmail.com 

Taos is a one-of-a-kind village; a blend of ancient history and modern art, deep white-water canyons and ski resorts on mountain tops, arid prairie and lush forests, off-the grid housing from the 1000+ year old Taos Pueblo to the Earthship community (both equally worth the tour). Centered on a classic Spanish adobe town square are eclectic shops and eateries. Surrounding countryside offers remote backroads exploring and challenging hiking. But if you’re into art or history museums, you’ll find some of the best in the country.

18-24 AUGUST-GLENWOOD SPRINGS(SLIT), CO

Glenwood Springs West KOA  800-562-3708  

Rallymaster Don & Linda Feltner 303-232-0859 donlindafeltner4339@gmail.com

Kevin & Paula Gurnsey 303-829-9932. pmbake66@gmailcom

This popular KOA fills up quickly for the summer months, so you need to make reservations soon! The well-known Glenwood Springs Pool is the big draw to this area, but it’s not the only attraction. The drive east of town through Glenwood Canyon is an engineering marvel, with a hike/bike trail that goes the whole distance practically on top of the raging Colorado River. The Redstone’s interesting history and coal company town, along with its Castle, is 20 miles south, and continuing south is Marble CO, where the marble for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier & Lincoln Memorial came from. You can also reach famous Aspen ski village an hour out of Glenwood Springs, and adventure further to hike to the Maroon Bells (one of the most picturesque views in the Rockies). Perhaps one of the most iconic hikes in this region is to Hanging Lake, a steep and challenging route. Reservations are required WAY in advance, and a shuttle takes you there from Glenwood Springs.
