Colorado or Wyoming

Well, I know this is a big question and no doubt asked by many. Recommendations on places it sit for a month in Colorado or Wyoming in July or August of next year? My preferences:

1. A monthly rate with FHU.
2. Nice trees but still able to use my portable satellite
3. Temp highs in the 80's at the most - prefer 70's.

So, not a lot of requirements but would like to travel around in our Jeep and see some nice areas also and beat some of the Texas heat.

Ideas appreciated.

Can you use military famcamps? Some retired federal workers can...if so, USAF Academy in Colorado Springs! Great (!) famcamp in great location to mountains, springs, whatever.
If going to Wyoming, check out Debois, WY...little farm town on the wind river, lots to do in a Jeep! Very close to Tetons, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, but far enough not to have traffic...unless its deer in the road. We found the KOA in Dubois couple years ago...wanted to stay for two nights...stayed 11, would've stayed longer but had reservations at Yellowstone. If you go, ask for back-in on the river, and don't forget to go to the Cowboy Cafe within walking distance of KOA...get the pie...OMG!!!
I'm sure others will chime in...great area no matter where you go.
Safe travels

For your Jeep use there is no better place than Colorado.

Some of our favorite areas are Silverton (our absolute favorite), Pagosa Springs, Buena Vista, Gunnison.

I agree with Okrver on the greatness of Taylor Park, CO. Especially for off-roading, lots of old mining roads and stream crossings. Would take about a month to see it all. But I would not take my MH over Cottonwood Pass from the east of the park. I would enter from the west from Gunnison. I have been over maybe 20 different passes in CO, and Cottonwood is the only one I would dread to repeat in a motorhome. 12,126 ft. of altitude and switchbacks on a county dirt road!

Mountain Views RV in Creede, Co. Also go up to Silverton, Co. You will have enough Jeep trails to keep you going for quite a while.

Hard to beat Steamboat in the summer, it has it all.

Stayed at Steamboat CG, west of town, nice pool, right on the Yampa river, lots to do. The town shuttle runs all day from the CG into town and back. Great spot!!!
