RV Rentals in Denver, CO

Discover Denver

If you and your family are looking to explore colorful Colorado from the comfort of an RV, start your adventures by booking a Denver RV rental. Denver, Colorado’s state capital, is just as breathtaking as some of the state’s popular mountain towns, and it’s the ideal place to start your RV journey. 

Denver sits at an elevation of 5,280 feet above sea level, a fact that’s proudly displayed throughout the city. The Denver Broncos play at Mile High, and several businesses express their love for the Mile High City by using the number 5280 in their names. You don’t have to look far to find where the elevation reaches precisely 5,280 feet. Curious people can find the location at the west side of the Colorado State Capitol engraved on the fifteenth stair. 

Coloradans are active people, and when the sun shines in Denver — approximately 300 days a year — people get outside. There isn’t a bad time of year to visit Denver, but if you want to take full advantage of the long and sunny summer days, consider camping between May and September when the daytime temperatures seldom top 90 degrees.

Things to Do in Denver

Things to Do in Denver

An RV rental in Denver will provide you and your family a chance to explore the city, escape to the mountains, or visit one of Colorado’s four national parks. If national park camping is on your bucket list, Denver’s closest parks are Rocky Mountain National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. If you have more time in the state, consider adding Mesa Verde National Park and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to your itinerary. 

If you plan to keep it local to check out what Denver has to offer, Colorado’s craft beer scene is spectacular. Every fall, the city hosts the Great American Beer Festival. In this event, approximately 800 of the country’s best craft breweries vie for top prizes and then share their tasty award-winning beer with ticket holders. If you love beer but are traveling with kids, not to worry! Opt to take the Coors Brewery Tour or visit some of the city’s best breweries. Several breweries in town welcome kids and have food trucks and other beverage options for hungry bellies or underage patrons. 

If you rent an Airstream in Denver and are a sports fan, it would be a shame to miss a Denver Broncos, Avalanche, Nuggets, or Colorado Rockies game. There is nothing more fun than watching a game from a mile high with other Denver fans, and if you plan ahead, public sporting events, like a Broncos game, often have game-day tailgating and oversized parking options available. 

Denver’s public transportation makes it easy to get from multiple points in the city to areas downtown, so you won’t need to search for oversized parking lots. Keep your rig at the campground and take a bus or light rail to your destination, or for fun, take the light rail to Union Station, the city’s historic transportation station. From Union Station, it’s a quick trip to the Denver Zoo, the Children’s Museum of Denver, the Museum of Nature and Science, or the Denver Aquarium, all kid-approved places for hands-on fun and learning.

RV Campgrounds in Denver

RV Campgrounds in Denver

Imagine your family bundled up around a propane fire next to your camper, watching the blue and orange sunset dipping behind the mountains of Colorado’s Front Range. It’s possible to experience a little bit of that mountain-town feeling in parts of Denver without ever leaving the city. Denver is usually the starting point for RVers and campers heading west to experience the epic outdoors. To find the best RV parks in Denver, choose one of the area state parks such as Cherry Creek State Park or Chatfield State Park.

The state parks in Colorado cater to people who want to escape reality and experience a little bit of nature, and the parks in Denver are no exception. Once you cross into the state parks and find the campgrounds, you won’t realize you are inside the big city. Both Chatfield and Cherry Creek have a large reservoir for water recreation, and the by-reservation campsites offer campers different levels of camping. Depending on the time of year, both state parks have basic and full-hookup sites, various site sizes, a dump station, shower houses, and laundry facilities.

Aside from the state parks, most of the Denver RV campgrounds are located on the city’s outskirts or suburbs. For a city park on the west side, try Bear Creek Lake Park Campground. Campers who want to stay near Denver’s prairie, camp at the Denver East / Strasburg KOA.
