With summer now a pleasant memory, it's time to focus our attention on the season ahead. Time for some autumnal leaf peeping!!
We've found some great RV parks in the most scenic areas of the country for seeing the leaves change and the cool weather return.
Crested Butte RV Resort is close to one of the country's largest Aspen groves and a drive from Gunnison to Crested Butte provides the foliage buff with a kaliedoscope of gold, yellow and crimson. The Resort, in the shadows of Mt. Whetstone and on the Slate River, is the ideal spot to set up your base camp to enjoy all that the Gunnison National Forest has to offer. Hiking, biking, fishing and winter skiing!
