RV Camping Near Pueblo, Colorado
Pueblo, Colorado, is more than just a place where you can order all those consumer information catalogs. South Shore Lake offers 18 miles of hiking trails and Pueblo is a very bike-friendly area. The city is on the banks of the Arkansas River, and many of the campgrounds in the area provide not only an opportunity for water sports but the chance to strike it rich by panning for gold.

Lake Pueblo State Park

Lake Pueblo State Park has been welcoming visitors who come to take full advantage of the nearly 5,000-acre reservoir since 1975. Those looking for an RV vacation filled with water fun should consider the 383 multipurpose sites located here, but hikers and bikers can also find plenty of things to keep them satisfied. The reservoir provides a beach for swimming or you can hop into a boat and go fishing or skiing. Jet ski rentals are available. As you hike or bike along the miles of trails along the Arkansas River, you will come across people flying remote control planes, picnicking on the banks, sailing in the distance and taking advantage of the opportunity for wildlife photography.

Pueblo KOA

The Pueblo KOA contains 60 RV-only sites that each provide a picnic table. If you prefer not to so near the water, this can be a good choice--it's surrounded by desert. There is a rec room with a pool table and video games. Outdoor enthusiasts will find hiking trails and fantastic opportunities out in the desert to get in some mountain climbing. Those who enjoy the water are not out of the loop either; both swimming and boating are available. A unique attraction at this site is the jumping pillow that is like a curved trampoline stretched over the ground. Another big plus is the sight of Pike's Peak in the distance.
