CAMPING SEASON 2022-2023

RVing is one of our favorite ways to escape from stress. The health and safety of our community, staff, and guests remain a top priority for Cool Sunshine RV Park. In light of the ongoing situation with Covid 19, we continue to make an effort to minimize the impact this could have on you and on our community. We encourage you to take whatever safety measures make you comfortable. Here is what we are doing to keep Cool Sunshine RV Park healthy and clean.

All reservations can be made online or over the phone. All information will be available to you via our website and through telephone, email, or text communication. We spend the time between check-out at 11:00 am and check-in at 2:00 pm to thoroughly clean our building so we discourage an early check-in or a late check-out. However, if your travel plans require it, we can make that accommodation for a $20.00 fee.

We will accommodate schedule changes whenever possible. Please notify us as soon as you can of any changes in your travel plans. Please check our cancellation policy.

Please note: From November 20th-March 1stwe are open to self-contained units only. Our bathroom facilities may be closed or available only when requested. Colorado winters are very cold. We recommend you use tank heaters and disconnect from the water source at night.

If you have any questions, please call us at 719 992-9105. –Amy & Wade
