RV Campgrounds in Teluride, Colorado
Telluride, located in the southwestern part of Colorado in a narrow box canyon in the San Juan mountains, is one of the most beautiful places in the state, with stunning mountain vistas everywhere you turn. Telluride is also one of the most popular tourist destinations, offering world-class skiing at Telluride Mountain, plenty of hiking, rock and ice climbing and a full slate of summer festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, which draws more than 10,000 people every June.

Town Park

Town Park is the location of the annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival and is located on the east side of town. The Park has 28 RV sites, but RV size is limited to 30 feet, and if your RV is trailer pulled, that length has to include the pulling vehicle. No electric, sewer or water hookups are available, but there is a dump station in town on South Mahoney Drive. The site is open from mid-May to mid-October, depending on weather conditions. The Town Park site is the only place you are allowed to sleep overnight in your RV in town, though overnight parking is allowed in the Mountain Village in the Meadows Lot and on the street. No reservations are accepted; access is first come, first served.
