Leaving Cody Wy

What is safest route out of Cody Wy to Colorado Springs ? And what Rv parks would you suggest at Colorado Springs ( we are towing a 35ft FW) ? We intend to visit Pike Peak and Royal Gorge .

We traveled out of Cody on RT20 to RT120 back to RT20 to Interstate 25. Thermopolis has an interesting dianosor museum. No problems with roads with a 39 foot MH towing a toad. We stayed in the KOA in Colorado Springs. It was OK.

While in Colorado Springs we also visited; Garden of the Gods (beautiful-don't miss), Pikes Peak, and Air Force Academy. See our blog.

Can't help you with route or lodging...we often go to the Springs as we have kids there. We stay at the USAF Academy campground.
However, while staying in the Springs, don't miss having a berry salad or buffalo burger at The Keg in Manitou Springs. Or the Omelet Parlor (YUM!) 900 E. Filmore St in the Springs.
Also in Woodland Park, the Hungry Bear is great! The Zoo in the springs is fun too. Beer drinker? Phantom Canyon downtown Col Spgs (brewery/restaurant)...but then again theres lots(!) of breweries there.
Enjoy your trip.
Safe travels.

20->26->I25 is an easy drive. Don't forget to keep an eye on the winds as you'll be going across Cheyenne during the annual Wyoming Wind Festival (runs from January 1 to December 31st each year ).

And if it's a weekday, traffic across Denver can be a giant pain in the hind end, making the tolls on the E-470 loop well worth it to bypass Denver itself.

My hometown is Colo Spgs and I gotta admit there aren't many fabulous commercial campgrounds there. I'm retired Mil and I stay at the Air Force Academy, which is very nice. There is a fairly nice campground north of the city off I25 at a Monument...I don't remember if it was KOA or a private CG. For other campgrounds checkout the Colorado State Parks campground website. They have a very nice campground at Cheyene Mountain (Fountain, CO). If you don't mind the daily drive and like tranquility checkout Mueller State Park in Divide, Co. At night you can hear the elk bugling in the fall.

I would second the recommendation of Cheyenne Mt state park. We absolutely love it there. A small park with great views. And you can get out your binoculars and try to peek at NORAD as it is directly above the park. Very convenient to all the goodies that COS has to offer - Pikes Peak, CM zoo, Garden of the gods, etc.

Have a great visit!
