Once you've found the perfect Grand Junction RV campground, you'll no doubt be itching to explore the city. While the traffic in Grand Junction isn't as bad as it would be in major metro areas, the road quality can be poor, so watch out for potholes, especially on rural roads. If you're searching for somewhere to park downtown, there's a dirt lot on 7th Street between Ute Avenue and Pitkin Avenue where you can park a motorhome during the day.
Campers looking to learn more about the culture and history of western Colorado should spend the day at the Museum of the West. This museum preserves thousands of years of local history through thoughtful exhibits and rare artifacts. While touring the museum, you'll come across ancient Anasazi pottery, antique weapons from the Wild West, and a model uranium mine.
Looking for an attraction to keep the kids happy? Check out Bananas Fun Park. Your whole crew is sure to love this fun park, which features a mini-golf course, laser tag, go-karts, and a 12,000 square foot arcade. There's also a water play park complete with slides where your kids can cool off.
The highlight of any trip to Grand Junction is the stunning landscape, and you won't want to miss the Colorado National Monument. One of the highlights of Colorado's landscape (and that's saying something), the Colorado National Monument consists of a steeply-walled, red rock canyon complete with breathtaking monoliths. During your visit, ensure you stop by Coke Ovens Overlook for a picture of one of the park's best rock formations. Other popular sites include the Kissing Couple and Independence Monument rock formations.
