Camping

Although no campgrounds are within 10 miles (16 km) of CU-Boulder’s campus, there are several nearby.

The nearest is located at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont. Its campground is designed for RVs and travel trailers, and is within short walking distance of the pond inside the Roger’s Grove open space. The trail can take you near a nest occupied every summer by a family of ospreys, as well as the Roger’s Grove pond and the St. Vrain River (both of which are frequent stopovers for migrant wildlife). Longmont’s bicycle-friendly St. Vrain Greenway runs along the river.

To the east of Longmont, and near I-25 highway, is St. Vrain State Park. Accommodating RVs, travel trailers and tents, the park’s site is surrounded by a number of holding ponds, with historical connections to the county’s agricultural past. There are routine children's interpretive programs held on-site, as well as several miles of walking trails. The ponds are noted for regular visits by cormorants and pelicans, and the surrounding plains are home to resident prairie dogs. Plus, it's close (2 miles; 4 km) to Sandstone Ranch, Longmont's largest open space area, with trails highlighting the ranch’s agricultural history, as well as plenty of playgrounds, picnic shelters, and interpretive talks.

If you're willing/able to drive farther for your camping (30-40 miles; 50-60 km), there are also campground options within the US Forest Service’s Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests' Boulder Ranger District. Not all the campgrounds within the national forests are RV or trailer-friendly, but all accommodate tents. All the campgrounds—especially that within the Brainard Lake Recreation Area, near the mountain village of Ward—are located “off the beaten path” and can provide a genuine visit to the Rocky Mountains’ wilderness.

And, of course, there is Rocky Mountain National Park—located outside the town of Estes Park, approximately 55 miles (88 km) from Boulder. Within the park, there are four large campgrounds, all of which are RV/trailer-compatible, but are welcoming to tents. Spectacular mountain scenery, abundant wildlife (especially the park’s signature elk), many miles of trails, and numerous Ranger-led interpretative talks and hikes make the park one of the west’s premier camping destinations.
