Sharing is caring!

We’re sharing the best Denver RV rentals with you today, plus tips on RVing in the Denver, Colorado area. An RV vacation in Colorado is always a good idea!

RVing in Denver, Colorado

We’ve spent quite a bit of time RVing in the Denver area in the summer, winter, and fall. Plus, we used to live there, so we’ve got the scoop on things to do, where to RV and the best time to do so.

RVing in Denver can be tricky. Why? Because finding an RV campground spot is fiercely competitive.

Out of all the times we’ve RV’d in this location, we’ve never stayed in Denver. We’ve always had to go about an hour outside the city to secure a spot, but we’ll get into all the tips and tricks for RVing in Denver down below.

First, let’s talk about renting an RV and why you might want to consider this form of travel.

Why Rent an RV?

We’ve covered all the benefits of renting an RV on our RV rentals post. But, we’ll give you a quick run-down here:

  • It allows you to try before you buy – If you’ve been thinking about purchasing an RV, trying before you buy helps you figure out what you like and what you don’t
  • Lower costs than owning – You don’t have to worry about storage or maintenance fees
  • You can bring your pet (if the RV owner allows it) – Bring that pup with you and see just how much they’ll love the RV lifestyle
  • All the comforts of home – It’s the best way to travel if you want all the comforts of home including a refrigerator, comfortable bed and linens, kitchen necessities, a TV, shower, toilet, etc.
  • It can save you money on your vacation – For a family of four, RV travel is 20 – 63% less expensive than other types of vacations

As you can see, the benefits are pretty fantastic.

**Quick Side Note: We’ve been through the RV Rental process multiple times, and we’ve learned a thing or two that might be helpful for you. If you’re interested in making your first RV rental an enjoyable and pain-free experience, we highly recommend you check out these other RV Rental resources on our site also:

And now, you’re ready to roll! Let’s get back to Denver.**

This travel trailer has one of the features that I always liked as we were shopping the first time: the kitchen island. Those are very typical in fifth wheels but definitely harder to find in travel trailers. If the kitchen is your favorite space, this setup will treat you right.

Tips for RVing in Denver, CO

Booking an RV Park

As I mentioned above, we struggled with trying to find an RV park actually in Denver. Most of the Denver RV parks have very limited space, are booked solid or have mostly full-time stationary tenants.

To solve this problem, we’ve parked in our family’s driveway, parked in our friends’ yard for three weeks and booked RV parks 45 minutes to an hour outside the city. 

This was our sweet set-up about an hour outside of Denver at our friend’s house

RVing in Denver, CO

We stayed at the Jellystone RV Resort in Larkspur at Christmas and given that it was winter, it was a ghost town with plenty of spots open. This is one of the cabins you can rent. And yes, it snowed while we were there. A LOT.

Jellystone RV Resort Larkspur Colorado

We’ve heard that this is a happening spot and a great place to stay in the spring and summer. The staff was incredibly friendly and very accommodating when we had to leave our RV for a few days while the pipes thawed out. Good times were had by all.

Choose The Time of Year Wisely

This is obviously a given and RVing in Colorado is seasonal. Not everyone is as, um, smart as we are and RVs there in the winter. We’ve also been there in the fall and had a chance to watch the leaves change. That was incredible, but guess what…it snowed.

The weather in the Denver area during spring and summer is next to perfect. The days usually aren’t too warm, the sun shines a lot (around 300 days a year!) and there are so many outdoor activities to do to keep everyone busy.

Realize You’ll Probably Do A Lot of Driving

There is so much to see and do in the great state of Colorado and the Denver area. From parks and hiking spots to exploring mountain towns.

If you make the Denver area your basecamp, just know you’ll be doing quite a bit of driving to see the attractions.

Here are a few we highly recommend checking out:

  • The Denver Zoo
  • Denver Botanic Gardens
  • See a concert at Red Rocks
  • Shop and dine at the 16th Street Mall
  • Tour the United States Mint
  • Try out the ropes course at Treetop Adventure Park in Bailey, CO – Read about our experience here
  • Rocky Mountain National Park & Estes Park (about an hour and a half from Denver) – We also highly recommend RVing in Estes Park. We’ve done it twice and will definitely be going back
  • Visit Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs (about an hour and a half from Denver)
  • Check out our post on the best outdoor activities in Colorado for every season

Denver is the perfect basecamp for an RVing vacation. We hope the Denver RV rentals we featured help get you excited about the possibilities and find the perfect vehicle for your RV trip.
