Twin River Cabins & RV ParkTwin Rivers Cabins & RV Park in Antonito, Colorado
We visited this park on September 12, 2017, and stayed for 21 day(s).
RVers who want to ride the Cumbres & Toltec narrow gauge steam train, elk hunters, fly fishermen, and those just looking for a peaceful get-away should check out Twin Rivers Cabins & RV Park – one of the few Antonito Colorado campgrounds.
We chose Twin Rivers because of its proximity to the Cumbres & Toltec Antonito depot, and because at $179 for the week, the price was right. It’s a small, family-owned park, and as its name implies is nestled between two rivers. The park, itself, is mostly a grassy field – an open area between trees, with full hookups. Its pull-through sites are all 50 AMP, and sites along the perimeter are 30 AMP back-ins. We chose one of three pull-through sites with shade trees.
Baskets of hanging flowers adorn the office, clubhouse, and each cabin. The clubhouse is unlike anything we’ve seen elsewhere. It’s an eclectic and nostalgic mix of cooking and dining areas, complete with an antique stove, wood stove, and checkerboard table coverings. A book exchange and board games are tucked into one corner, and the park’s one washer and dryer are along another wall. A small overhead railroad display and antique memorabilia complete the look.
The owners are friendly and hard-working, and we’ve enjoyed visiting with them. They’re diligent with the upkeep of their property and satisfaction of their guests. Earlier this year they added a dog park, and a horse boarding coral and pasture to the park’s amenities.
The only downsides for us are that our Verizon signal is very poor here and we can’t pull in any over-the-air TV at our site, probably because of the trees. Thankfully, we can compensate somewhat with our AT&T hotspot. Other RVers we’ve met here are getting some over-the-air TV, and those with satellite report good coverage.

Fall is a beautiful time to visit Antonito Colorado campgrounds. In mid-September leaves are beginning to change, days are comfortable in the low-70’s and nights are cool – upper 30’s and low 40’s.
If you’re looking for a high-end RV resort, this isn’t it. But if you’re looking for a relaxing place to get away from it all and enjoy some rustic beauty, while exploring southern Colorado on the front range of the Rockies, you won’t be disappointed with Twin Rivers Cabins & RV Park.
We came here for a week, fell in love with this peaceful, pretty place, and wound up staying for three weeks.
