I think it is so fun to RV, you can even rent an RV if you don't have one and take a road trip. There are many beautiful RV Parks within 50 miles for Grand Junction. You could make a family vacation out of RV-ing. Take a break with a park like setting in most instances. My family goes RV-ing every year,  we follow each and stop and different RV park in different states. It is nice to be able to pull into an RV and have electric, water and satellite hook up.

According to Yelp here are the top places to RV in Mesa County and the surrounding area. Some of the RV sites have really nice pet area's as well nice clean bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms. Some RV parks offer public setting areas for  BBQ's and lots of green space.
