Colorado Recomendations

What does everyone recommend in the areas of Carbondale and Leadville, we have a 32' motorhome and a jeep. Hookups are nice but not 100% necessary.

How about south of Leadville towards Buena Vista or Salida?

Leadville has a great rv park near the most beautiful lakes and is a pretty decent park for the area. It is called Sugar Loafin RV.
Called ahead because it usually full.

Thanks Bentley,

The reviews for Sugar Loafin look pretty good, also Snowy Peaks down near Buena Vista, might spend some time at each.

I won't advise you about Leadville, it has been too long since I was there, but I will warn you about Denver area toll roads.
Last fall we drove from Longmont to Pueblo and back to Commerce City and used E470 both ways.They have no toll booths, they use cameras to photograph your license plate. When we got the bill in the mail it was for $82.00 !
So watch out.

In Buena Vista we stayed at Snowy Peaks Rv. It was one of the nicest we have ever stayed at.

2 miles south of Buena Vista is the little village of Johnson Village. The VFW there has paved parking with electric, water, and trash for a volunteer donation of $5 per night. There are also ample boondocking locations around BV, Salida, and north towards Leadville. Also, NW of Leadville about 10 miles is the 10th Mountain Alpine Division training site, that has both a pay campground and ample free boondocking locations. Salida visitor center has free dump, and Poncha Springs visitor center has $5 dump.

Thanks for all the good info everyone! Any other recommendations would be much appreciated.

We'll probably make a loop, coming in from SoCal on the 70 to Leadville, then down towards Buena Vista, then east on 50 back towards the 70. We did all the Silverton trails last year so probably won't head back that way this time.

Numerous RV parks in the Leadville and Buena Vista area. Also a lot of BLM land where you can boondock, but boondocking there is tough this time of year; still a lot of snow in the mountains until late June.

We once stayed just west of Salida in Poncha Springs in an rv park. Very quiet. It was just south of the road.
