Availability

These spots are available year round. The town does not have a lot going on, but it is a good stopping point out in the country while traveling across Colorado. I am personally not present year-round, but my son is, and can lend a helping hand if needed.

Access Road Conditions

Access is right off a 2-lane highway that runs through town. The parking area is not paved, but it is gravel maintained by the county.

Site Description

This location is in a very, very, very small town in the eastern plains of Colorado. The RV spots are on the location of an old motel. The area is clean, although some weeds/stickers during certain times of year. The motel is abandoned, but is cool and funky. There is NOTHING in town to buy, other than stamps. But, it is a wonderful little community that is nice to stay for the night or a week. Note that this is private property, and permission is needed to park here.

Suggested Local Attractions

My son and I have a small pig farm close by, so if you are feeling the want to feed some pigs, or fix some fence, or just visit the farm, let me know. You might get a little smelly, but the pigs won't mind :)

A Little More Detail

I started fulltiming in December of 2006. It has changed a lot over the years, which is what I enjoy about the lifestyle. I enjoy finding places where I can take my Jeep out on adventures, go hiking, enjoy the outdoors, and still have a good internet connection.

I also spend time in the eastern plains of Colorado on my son's farm. I enjoy working with the pigs, and spending time out in rural Colorado.

This was a great stop for me in eastern Colorado with a great host, when I was on my way to Wyoming last month to view the big solar eclipse. I had intended to stay for 2 nights, but ended up leaving after just one night due to changes in the weather forecast. There is not much if anything to the town, though it looks to have once been a thriving small town some decades ago, almost a modern ghost town, while there are a number of residences remaining there are no functioning businesses and there don't appear to have been any in a number of years.

There’s an old saying that “I showed up as a stranger and left as a friend.” Even though I had never met our host (Nomadr) before, our experience visiting him was that we showed as friends and left as lifetime friends.

Cope Colorado is a very very small unincorporated farming-based community with a population of 169 (as of 2014). He helps his son run a pig farm there.

Our boondocking spot was about a mile away from the pig farm on property that has been in the family for generations. They were there to greet us, recommended the best spot to drop the rig, and gave us the lay of the land. I asked about his pig farm and the next day he picked us up to see the whole operation during feeding time. We loved it.

The Verizon signal was excellent with a nearby tower. We were able to work during our stay no problem. I particularly enjoyed watching the big rig trucks in all shapes and sizes rolling past during the day. Nighttime was pretty darn quiet.

Our host made time to come visit with us during our stay and even invited us over for some BBQ pork and fresh vegetables. Yummmm.

He is a pioneer in the full-timer community as the founder of NuRVers whom Technomadia described as a community of alternative minded ‘young at heart RVers’. Indeed, NuRVers.com began before Facebook and served as an early online meeting place for the more Internet based generation of full-timers. He also created an online system for running your Pig farm business more efficiently.

If you are looking to take the road less traveled away from the Interstate through northern Colorado, I highly recommend this little slice of heaven.
