Welcome to the Crystal River Cabins

We were formerly known as BRB Crystal River Resort Cabins and RV Park

We invite you and your family to enjoy one of our 13 authentic old-west log cabins, 24 RV sites and 15 tent sites, in a uniquely beautiful setting in the iconic Roaring Fork Valley, on the banks of the Crystal River south of Carbondale, Colorado, surrounded by the soaring majesty of the Rocky Mountains.

We are located on Colorado Highway 133, only six miles from the sophisticated town of Carbondale and its fine restaurants, 19 miles from the many activities of Glenwood Springs and 35 miles from the world-famous resort town of Aspen.    

This is a place so beautiful that you won’t want to leave, and you’ll find so many nearby attractions and activities that you’ll want to make time for them all.

From your cabin, RV or tent site, you will enjoy spectacular views of 12,965-foot Mount Sopris and a half mile of frontage along the truly beautiful Crystal River, where you can stroll along the banks and watch for birds and cast a line for trout.  

You can access the paved walking/biking Crystal Valley Trail right at the campground entrance and follow it to the Rio Grande Trail that runs from Glenwood Springs to Aspen. Hiking, hunting, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, jeep tours, golf, and fly-fishing are favorite activities.

CARBONDALE/CRYSTAL RIVER KOA makes a great base for exploring the western slope of Colorado.  Scenic drives on excellent roads will take you to Glenwood Springs and its famous hot springs and many other family activities; to the world-famous ski/resort town of Aspen; to the quaint town of Redstone, with its famous castle; to the historic mining town of Marble that supplied stone for many Washington DC buildings and monuments; and to the lively town of Paonia, with an intriguing mix of wineries, orchards and art galleries.    

NOTE:  If we are full, our “sister” KOA is located less than 40 miles away (17 miles west of Glenwood Springs) just off I-70 and along the banks of the Colorado River.  The GLENWOOD SPRINGS WEST/COLORADO RIVER KOA HOLIDAY now has over 100 RV sites, four camping cabins, four deluxe cabins with kitchens and bathrooms, three spacious teepees and 14 tent sites.

Both CARBONDALE/CRYSTAL RIVER KOA and GLENWOOD SPRINGS WEST/COLORADO RIVER KOA HOLIDAY can serve as base camps for visits to area attractions and serve as convenient stopovers en route to the National Parks of neighboring Utah.



The number of activities and attractions within an easy driving distance of the campground is almost endless. There is truly something for everyone of every age, interest and activity level.

A 5-minute drive north on Highway 133 from the campground brings you to the wonderful town of Carbondale where you can dine, enjoy varied shopping and see art both indoors and out.  Drive north from Carbondale to Glenwood Springs or south to Aspen.


Walk out the front door of your cabin to explore or drive to one of the countless snowshoe trails in the Roaring Fork Valley.

XC Skiing

XC skiing options abound, out your front door or on nearby XC ski areas.


The Roaring Fork Valley is home to Aspen, Snowmass, and Sunlight Mountain Resort.


The town of Carbondale is a culinary hot spot, full of exciting restaurants, bars, and cafes.
