    CO RV Park Recommendations?

    Wife and I are planning a two week trip to CO this summer and would appreciate any recommendations for RV camping in the following vicinities: South Fork area, Durango area, Gunnison area, Paonia (for the TOR rally), Leadville and Idaho Springs. It doesn't have to be specifically in those towns, just that general vicinity. Timeframe is July 20 thru Aug 4.

    The dog and I can get by but the wife pretty much dictates that we have electricity (30 amps), water and shower facilities. Wifi access is a plus. State and national park campgrounds are fine too as long as they have these "necessities". I've been reading online reviews such as "rvparkreviews.com" and am surprised how few campgrounds there are to choose from. We have a truck camper towing an enclosed trailer and plan to spend a few days in each area riding as much of the 'good stuff' (Thank you Steve Farson and Butler maps!) as possible.

    Thank you for your thoughts, suggestions and recommendations.

    The Mesa RV Park on the west edge of Gunnison is a great spot.

    When looking at Gooble Maps, I see a KOA near the west end of the airport.
    We had stop using KOA a long time ago because they were charging a lot more than other private campgrounds, but I see this one is about the same price as Mesa.
    When looking at the websites, they both look nice.

    On the Google link, you may have to slide the map to the right to see the Mesa RV Resort.

    In Durango, I stayed at a privately run RV park right by the highway & railroad. The Durango train goes out & back, it was cool to see it come by...

    We stayed there, too, this summer. Great photo ops when the trains go by. One of the few campgrounds with shade. We stayed 5 nights. Had full hookups. Don't believe their claim to have wi-fi, by the way.
