There’s An Epic Covered Wagon Campground In Colorado And It’s A Unique Overnight Adventure
You have camped in a tent more times than you can count, rented an RV once or twice, and have even splurged on a cabin before… now what? While all of the above are considered to be classic, there are more unique lodging options that you HAVE to try, including covered wagon camping at the Dolores River Campground and Cabins:
Located in the small town of Dolores, the Dolores River Campground is billed as being a "beautiful, tree-filled campground that provides a true Colorado get-away."
Situated in the stunning San Juan Skyway along the scenic Dolores River, the Dolores River Campground was opened in 2013 and offers 80 RV sites, places for tent camping, and such amenities as a gift shop and store, rec hall, bathhouse, and laundry room.
While you have come to expect RV and tent camping from most campgrounds, the Dolores River Campground goes above and beyond, thanks to some of the most unique lodging options in the state!
Do you crave a quaint cabin or a luxurious home? The Dolores River Campground has them both.
Have you ever spent the night in a vintage trailer? You can at Dolores River, which is home to the darling 1953 Airstream trailer, dubbed the "Flying Cloud."
Would you like to test the comfort of a yurt? You can even do that at the campground, which has two 16-foot yurts complete with a private deck overlooking the Dolores River, plus a double bed and a bunk bed.
While all of the above is reason enough to camp at the Dolores River Campground, the pièce de résistance may just be the Conestoga Wagons, which will make you think you are living in the Wild West.
Rates for the hand-crafted Conestoga Wagons - which include a king-size bed and bunk bed, plus mini-fridge, microwave, and a table with chairs - start at $125 per night.
