ACTIVITIES NEAR GLENWOOD SPRINGS WEST/COLORADO RIVER KOA

The number of activities and attractions within an easy driving distance of the campground is almost endless. There is truly something for everyone of every age, interest and activity level.

A two-minute drive from the campground brings you to the old west town of Silt — townofsilt.org/ — where you can visit its historical park showing the homes and household furnishings, businesses, a school and what life, in general, was like for the miners and farmers of the Silt area in the early 1900’s. Just up the road is the popular Harvey Gap Reservoir and beyond that access to the Flat Tops Wilderness, with beautiful scenery and excellent fishing.

Drive east and you can visit Glenwood Springs and Aspen or Vail. Drive west and you can visit the town of Rifle and its incredible parks. Drive a little further west and you can enjoy the wineries and orchards in Palisade and the majestic Colorado National Monument.
