Full Hookup RV Sites -- 30 Miles to Beaver Creek Skiing -- 40 Miles to Vail Ski Resort

TYPICAL VACATION DAY: Enjoy tubing, rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and trophy trout fishing along the 1-1/2 miles of private Eagle River frontage. Bring your clubs: two 18 hole golf courses are nearby. At night try to count the stars while meeting new friends at our riverside campfire center.

THE PERFECT HIKE: Hanging Lake National Natural Landmark is a 1 mile round trip hike up the side of Glenwood Canyon to reveal one of Colorado's cherished water features. The natural path has been cleared of walking with steeper parts offering wood steps, and many benches along the way to rest. Be sure to bring water and pace your upward journey -- it is worth the hike! To maintain the beauty of this Colorado natural gem reservations are made through the Glenwood Springs Chamber of Commerce. Open seasonally from April through October.

SKIERS and BOARDERS: We are open all year! Stay here and ski Beaver Creek and Vail! Due to our westward location we are lucky to enjoy more snow-free days in Fall and Spring than our neighbors Vail and Beaver Creek. Additionally, we enjoy comparatively mild winters, that is why camping here and skiing there is a good choice.
