Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA Holiday


We welcome you to our new Colorado KOA campground, located on the Colorado River at I-70 Exit 97, 17 miles west of Glenwood Springs and adjacent to the “old west” town of Silt.

Open year-round, Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA is the convenient stopping point on your way east or west, whether you are looking for a comfortable one-night stay or a multi-day adventure basecamp. We offer RV sites, deluxe and camping cabins, teepees and tent sites.

This is a place so beautiful that you won’t want to leave, and you’ll find so many nearby attractions and activities that you’ll want to make time for them all.

You will enjoy spectacular views of the beautiful Roan Plateau, the Mamm Peaks and Battlement Mesa and over 2,800 feet of frontage along the majestic Colorado River, where you can stroll along the banks and watch for bald eagles, cast a line for trout or enjoy a tubing experience.

Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA makes a great basecamp for exploring western Colorado. Scenic drives on excellent roads will take you east to Glenwood Springs — and its famous hot springs – and beyond to the world-famous ski/resort towns of Aspen and Vail; or west to Rifle and its mountain parks, the wineries and orchards in Palisade and the majestic Colorado National Monument near Grand Junction. Click on “ACTIVITIES” for details.

The Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA was created from scratch starting in 2015. Everything is new and “purpose-built” for your enjoyment. You will register at our Welcome Center, with its convenience store, lounge, games, TV, library, laundry, showers and changing rooms. Outside the Welcome Center you will find our large, heated pool, sun patio, hot tub and playground. Other amenities include a second, brand new “family-style” bathhouse and laundry, a huge dog park, a boat launch, riverfront picnic area, enhanced trails and a dump station.

There are spacious pull-through sites and economical back-in sites, providing something for everyone. All sites have fire pits, picnic tables and grass hangout areas. Each RV space has water, sewer, electric (most are 50 amp) and cable TV with 50+ channels. A strong Wi-Fi signal is available.

AND, we are getting bigger and better. New for 2018 will be 36 deluxe patio sites, 14 of which will be right on the Colorado River — bringing us to a total of over 100 RV sites — and new cabin and tent sites – all beautifully landscaped. Along our Little River you can enjoy four deluxe cabins with kitchens and bathrooms and four camping cabins. We also offer a cluster of three spacious teepees and 14 tent sites.

Most importantly, we have a great desire to make your stay enjoyable. Our staff are campers who know what it takes to make other campers happy.  They will make you feel appreciated and welcome.
