Campground hosting can be a great way to stay in paradise longer than you normally would be allowed…
That is what motivated me as I knew in Colorado (as in most states), your campground visit is limited to 2 weeks – and I *knew* that Steamboat Lake and the surrounding region was going to require more… MUCH more of my attention!
In my brief video below, I detail various aspects of what it means to be a campground host, along with factors I considered before engaging for the summer. All told, I served from May 2 (when there was STILL enough snow on the ground to cross-country ski for a few more days!) until September 8 when the leaves were showing definite signs of change.
So… as you can see, hosting can help you to control the rate at which you’re “burning” money (consider a month’s stay as saving about 600. in campground fees) – both by having your site for free, and by being out of town, I limited my visits to town once per week – so, my credit card thanked me as well!
The added advantage, of course, was to avail oneself of all the hiking, wilderness, kayaking, biking, and over all relaxing activities available in or near the park you are hosting for.
If you want more information on campground hosting or on the Colorado State Park system, I’ll try to be as helpful as I can be! My direct number is 1-561-676-1205 and my skype is alan.sills
