Northeastern Colorado offers some great RV camping locations. Along the South Platte River, nestled in the quiet northeastern plains of Colorado, the city of Brush has become a regional retail commercial center for business as well as a transportation center for the railroad and trucking industries. At the heart and intersection of Co 71, US 6 and 34 highways and Interstate 76, Brush is a quiet and convenient stop for anyone traveling through the area.
Located on the south end of town is the city-run campground and RV park offering 60 gravel sites, 12 electrical, water, restrooms, showers and RV dump are available. No reservations and the first night is free! Each additional day is only $20 with a maximum stay of 7 days. For long-term stays (more than 7 days), the rate is $17.50 per night, and you will need to stop by City Hall to get that set up..
