Leadville, Colorado RV Parks

Leadville, Colorado RV Parks
Leadville, Colo., is a mid-size community set deep in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Leadville hosts an annual endurance mountain bike and running trail race called the Leadville 100, where entrants either trail run or bicycle a course throughout the mountains surrounding Leadville; the trail totals 100 miles in length. Even if you are not yet up to the challenge of the grueling race, opportunities for outdoor recreation abound in Leadville, including hiking, biking skiing and rock climbing. RV travelers to the region have several parks and campgrounds to rest up and refresh in.

Leadville RV Corral

The Leadville RV Corral offers discounted stays for members of the Passport USA and CampClub card holders. Park your rig in sites with water, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, sewer and electric connections. Your dogs are welcome so long as they are leashed while in the park. Shower off and refresh in the private shower stalls and enjoy picnics and barbecuing with the available grills and tables. Mountain biking and hiking trails, including those used for parts of the Leadville 100, are accessible from the campground.
