Grand Junction Colorado
After leaving Monument/Colorado Springs, Colorado, we started really heading home to California. We decided to take I-70/50 home as we wanted to see new territory. We went up to Denver and cut across 70. This takes you up a very high pass, with some good downgrades. We were so glad for a truck that was running good – with new brakes!
We had a few options to stay in Grand Junction, but we decided we didn’t need to spend $50+ a night when we would be arriving late in the afternoon, didn’t want to unhook, and leaving there pretty early the next morning. So instead of the KOA or the better Good Sam parks, we stayed at Mobile City RV Park. It was a little over $30 with our Good Sam discount, which worked for us.
The park is mostly full-timers, which I knew from the reviews. The person who checked us in was nice and drove us to the site. We didn’t have any issues, and it was actually pretty quiet in the park.
