The owner of the Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River Kampgrounds of America (KOA) Holiday in Silt, Colo., which sits on 2,800 feet of frontage along the Colorado River, recently completed a $1.3 million expansion of the park, bringing the total investment in infrastructure and amenities at the western Colorado campground to $3.8 million.
New facilities this year include 36 deluxe patio sites, 14 of which are right on the Colorado River, along with two new bath houses and a boat launch, according to a press release. Overall, the park now has 100 RV sites, four deluxe cabins, four camping cabins, three spacious teepees and 14 tent sites.
“This is a KOA campground that was purpose-built to cater to the desires of the modern camper,” said owner Ray Nielsen. “We added a lot of beautiful features but were careful to ensure that we preserved the experience of camping in our western environment.”
The open-all-year campground is located just off of Interstate 70 at Exit 97, only 17 miles west of Glenwood Springs. The KOA serves as a basecamp to explore all that western Colorado and nearby Utah have to offer.
The KOA’s new welcome center has a convenience store, lounge, games, television, library, laundry, showers and pool changing rooms.
For those who don’t have an RV and don’t want to camp in a tent, there are four deluxe cabins, complete with kitchens and bathrooms, located along the park’s “Little River.”
Four economical camping cabins (with electricity, but no bathrooms) are also available. A satellite bathroom is located near the cabins, complementing two other bath houses.
Also new this year is an off-leash dog park, improved walking trails and “bouldering areas” for kids.
