From Colorado to Wyoming to Idaho

Setting up camp at Boulder County Fairgrounds Campground

Boulder County Fairgrounds Campground

Traveling from Amarillo, TX to the Boulder County Fairgrounds Campground in Longmont, CO was a lot cooler than our time in Texas and we were happy for that! This was our first experience at staying at a Fairgrounds campground, so we called and spoke with the Camp Host to find out what needed to be done to reserve a spot. As you might expect it is “first come, first serve”, but he did tell us that since we were coming in at the beginning of the week there would probably be a few sites available, but the only reservation system in place was to come in, pay for the site and it would then be marked as unavailable. Well, how do you do that while you are traveling to a place? Lucky for us, Dave’s brother lives close enough to the campground and was willing to go “reserve” a spot for us, {Thank you, Chip}. While we wouldn’t want to stay there indefinitely, it was great for a few nights and it allowed us to have a good visit with Dave’s brother, Chip.

Bonus – a pull-through site with 30/50 amp service and water is $25 a night. No sewer, but there is a dump station ($10). The sites are cramped, but the campground is clean, it is relatively quiet and conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and gas stations and not far from the highway.

Next stop – a Harvest Hosts overnight stay at Evanston, Wyoming – but first enjoy some of the things we saw along the way.
