Colorado towing mountain backdrop

Do you know where is this place ?
I'd like to camp with the towering colorado mountain in the back drop like that.
Can you please point me to a spot ?

Lots of places in Colorado are like that. Anywhere on the eastern plains will give you a view similar to that.

I dropped the image into Google, and was able to track it down to St. Vrain State Park in Firestone. Here's the link to the pic:

Colorado RV Parks - RV Camping in Colorado | Colorado.com

You'll have to scroll through some of the photos to find it.

Makes me want to dig the camper out of the snow and go somewhere!

That state park is 40 minutes from my front door. If you like to fish it is fine, but the park itself run right to interstate 25. It is very loud and honestly not very pretty.

There are literally hundreds of nicer places to camp in Colorado.

Thanks everyone, how about Good Sams park ? Is there good sams park, full hook up that has such view ?
I tried to look for one from goodsamlsclub.com and campgroundview.com, all of them are covered by trees and make it look like a non colorado style camping ground. We'd like to have an open space, that we can see mountain right from our windows

It surprised me to realize I didn't have a few campgrounds with views come to mind immediately. We have views of Pikes Peak to the east of our home and the Collegiate Peaks to the west, so views aren't a priority when we camp with our Good Sams RV Club.

But the KOA in Colorado City (aka South Pueblo KOA) has a beautiful view from the southern end of the property and we get a GS group discount. It's my favorite campground. Buena Vista has a few campgrounds on Hwy. 24 at the foot of Mount Princeton. I think that town is the most underrated one in the entire state. The views from everywhere are beautiful and the Arkansas River runs along side the town.

As for Good Sam parks, I've found that most camps will give you a 10% discount. Just ask if they have GS, AAA, AARP, Senior, Handsome Guy, whatever. Often, it's built into their posted rate and is just a bonus if you don't request it, IMHO.

Wherever you plan on going, check the campground reviews on rvparkreviews.com to get other traverlers' opinions.

The view reminds me of Grand Tetons, but I don't know whether there are any nearby campgrounds that will give you a great view like that.
