ldmaster Hit pagosa springs in southern Colorado. Pretty near great sand dunes national park as well as Mesa verde. Then head up to steambiat springs or glen wood springs. Steamboat has a unique place you MIGHT want to camp at. Strawberry Hot Springs, primitive setup with 4-6 campsites. It's a freshwater hot spring alongside a cold mountain creek. Literally sit in 94 degree fresh water and reach your hand into swift running mountain spring. Only caveat is its clothing optional after dark, but during the day it's a great family spot.

My parents used to own the only has station in town. (The Silver Plume). We converted the back of it to be a rent a room thing. If you like showers and a flushing toilet, it's top notch. I think the new owners still do it, but I'm certain there is a waiting list.
Right on
I live in a converted Conoco gas station built in 1948....cinder block technology....

RichardinColorado Lots of folks in Texas come to Pagosa Springs, Colorado in the sw part of the state. You can ride the Durango/Silverton narrow gauge railroad through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the state.

OliverR. Weird. I'm in Houston too but grew up in Colorado.

I adore my old romping ground in Pitkin, co. Ifs smack dab in the center of the state, and one of the few places you can legally drive an off road vehicle on pavement.

It's PERFECT if you guys ride 4 wheelers or dirt bikes. Hundreds of miles of trails. Good camping and not too far off the beaten path. The summer is bustling with people who go up there to ride. Winter it's a ghost town with 70 people.

Let me know if you need any other suggestions. Crested butte and other ski towns are more luxurious, and expensive. My folks just camped there last weekend, and had a blast.

They live in grand junction, which is pretty much desert. Nice, but probably not what your looking for.

Colorado trip advice

I've never been to or even seen the mountains, but it's always been a dream of mine. I have the opportunity to take my son (15) on a road trip soon and was thinking of just driving until we get to the mountains. And then just hang out for the day, enjoy the sights, maybe do some light hiking.

I'm in the Houston, Tx area. I know NOTHING about Colorado. I'd love some suggestions of where we should go. I'm looking for a town in, preferably, southern Colorado and in the Rockies. Preferably not a tourist trap. We may tent camp or we may rent a cabin or a room...not sure.

Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance.
