Alamosa, Colorado

Proximity to Great Sand Dunes National Park is one of the main reasons to travel to Alamosa. The enormous dunes of this splendid park, which is northeast of Alamosa, can be seen from a great distance. The tall snow-capped mountains nearby, some of which are 13,000 ft. high, form a unique and striking counterpoint to the warm and windblown dunes.

The NPS campground has beautifully-landscaped, unserviced sites, for tents and RVs, among mature pinyon pine and juniper. You can view the night skies through a telescope at 8,200 ft. elevation. While camping in the park, strike out for a hike among the dunes, or rent a sand sled and enjoy it that way. Or just take a foot tour of the campground itself. The presence of the dunes draws your eyes and you can enjoy the dramatic light and shadow effects as the sun rises and falls.

Camping with services is available at San Luis Lakes State Park where the terrain is flat. San Luis Lake is near the sites, and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range looms over the lake. The Great Sand Dunes are also visible from this location.

Sand Dunes Recreation Hot Springs Pool has its own full service campground for RVs, with spaces for tents and dry camping spots for RVs, as well. You can relax in the pools or take swimming lessons. Aerobic fitness classes are also offered. There is a restaurant on site.

There are more full service RV parks near Alamosa and the conveniences of town (restaurtants and shopping) and still more along the highway near Del Norte.

Zapata Falls is a site where you can see astounding sunsets. Although the 2-mile gravel road has to be taken slowly, the effort is worth it. There is a hike to the falls. Remember, this is high country and a short hike can take longer than you expect.

Enjoy nature and many bird species, including sand hill cranes, at the Monte Vista and Alamosa National Wildlife Refuges. Heading east from Alamosa on Highway 285, the wetland refuge lies south of the highway. Monte Visa NWR is between Alamosa and Monte Vista, about 6 miles south of Monte Vista on Highway 15/Gun Barrel Road. Alamosa and Monte Vista are only about 16 miles apart, so many of the campgrounds and RV parks in the area will give you access to either town and surrounding attractions.

Try out the San Luis beer selection at the San Luis Valley Brewing Company on Main Street. There is a restaurant as well. The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad offers a Beer Tasting Train ride in winter and other rides which include beer can be booked in summer. There is a dining room and a concert site at one of the stations, as well as food on board and concerts while you travel. Concert season is June to September.
