Located at the edge of San Juan National Forest just outside Antonito, Colorado, Twin Rivers Cabins and RV Park campground has eight rental cabins, spacious RV slots as well as tent camping sites. Our RV park and campground is located along the spectacular border between Colorado and New Mexico, a five hour drive from Denver and a scenic one hour drive to Taos, Red River, and Chama, New Mexico. As well, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge and Baca National Wildlife Refuge are all within easy day-trip reach.
Situated along the Conejos River at 8,000′ elevation, Antonito is gateway to 40 miles of magnificent canyon where outdoor enthusiasts can fish, hunt, hike, and ride within minutes amidst breathtaking scenery of the San Juan National Forest thick with pine and aspen, including glimpses of abandoned adobe dwellings and old, pioneer heritage log cabins.
The fabled upper Conejos River offers excellent trout fishing for rainbow and brown trout. Platoro Reservoir, (where the largest gold nugget in the U.S. was mined), is stocked with rainbow trout each summer. As well, soon after spring thaw, kokanee salmon can be found. If you bypass discovering the fishing on your own, guided fishing trips are available locally.
If you plan to hunt the surrounding New Mexico or Colorado region, Twin Rivers Cabins & RV Park is an ideal, centrally convenient base for hunting deer, elk, antelope, and bear.
Once the “mainline” of the infant Denver & Rio Grande railroad, Antonito is now home to the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad historic steam train, voted “America’s most spectacular” narrow-gauge railroad still in operation. Take an excursion on the train and literally experience a step back in time and travel.
Antonito, our nearest town, (and county seat of Conejos county), is the site of “the oldest church in Colorado”, Our Lady of Guadalupe.
