Description

If you look at a map of Colorado, Rifle Gap State Park is basically smack dab in the middle of the Rocky Mountain range, just a short distance off I-70. This is where you’ll find Cottonwood Campground. And let us tell you, you’ll be glad you found it. Situated right on the shores of a beautiful 350-acre reservoir, you’ll have front-row seats to some of the most jaw-dropping, breathtaking, you-gotta-see-this mountains vistas in Colorado. And there a TON of mountain vistas in Colorado.
