Dakota Ridge RV Park | Colorado

Our stay in Colorado was part of our first cross-country rv trip.  We had been on the road for 14 days prior to reaching Colorado. We decided to stay at the Dakota Ridge RV park just outside of Denver on our way East.

After our time at Bryce Canyon, it was time to make our way back home to Cape Cod. Our first stop heading back east was in Golden Colorado at the Dakota Ridge RV Park.

The drive between Rubys Inn Utah and Golden Colorado park was one of the longest driving days of the cross-country trip. In one day we covered over 500 miles for the day and expected to be on the road 9-10 hours. However, we did not take into consideration driving an RV through the Rocky Mountains.

This ride through the Rocky Mountains did provide breathtaking taking views that we would never see in New England. However, driving up the mountains, and then down provides for some challenges.

This nice RV park is just outside of downtown Denver. All though we are from New England the boys are Denver Broncos fans. Since we were in the area we stopped by Mile High Stadium for some lunch prior to checking into the park. 

Dakota Ridge RV Park Review

This RV park offers spectacular views of the mountains and the Denver skyline. Within a few minutes of Dakota Ridge RV Resort, you’ll find plenty of shopping, dining, sightseeing, cultural activities, and other family activities to help experience Colorado.

There are 141 full hook-up sites that are level, paved, and beautifully landscaped. 

On-site was a nice heated pool and hot tub to hello unwind after a day of sightseeing, or in our case a day of traveling! 

This location offered us a great stopover as we made our way through Colorado. It is also a great RV location if you are looking to visit Denver. 

The staff on the scene we great, and very helpful to us. 

Although our stay was short, one night, we had a great experience at Dakota Ridge Rv park.
