2 Parks near Brush, Colorado
Jul 2016 - $0.00
This campground is a good option for an overnight stay. The best part is that it's free for the first night! The campground is next to the city park, which features an outdoor public swimming pool ($2 a day). The pool also has evening swims on Wednesdays. There are public showers nearby which we assumed could be used by campers. The park also features the local history museum, but it wasn't open when we were there (and their hours aren't advertised). The campground has probably 16 spaces (not 60, which you may have read on the Brush city's website). The outside spots have 20 amp hook ups, and the interior spots have 30 amps. Some of the interior spots also had water hook ups. There are a couple of dedicated spaces for tenters. There were only a couple of 30-amp spaces available when we arrived in mid afternoon on a Tuesday. Most of the spaces are occupied by longer-term campers (they may be workers?). The park has a bit of a "sketchy" feel to it, but we did see the local police come through to check up on things. The campground is located on Clayton St, south of the main section of town and the train tracks. The trains are quite frequent, long, and loud at night. The campground is only a 10-minute walk to restaurants and shops in the downtown area. Overall, this park is a good value for a one-night stopover, and we would stay here again. - tripster

The lot arrangement is strange, we parallel parked the rig! This is a city run park and the first night is free. The second night was $20.00. This is a great service from the city of Brush as it is a win win for campers and local businesses. The weather was nasty but there was a very nice park and if you braved the cold, you could watch Little League baseball. - sammy32

Look, I marked this site with an overall rating of excellent not because the park itself is excellent (it's just okay), but because the value and convenience is definitely there.
Brush is a very small town in the middle of nowhere, Colorado. You would think that the town would maximize on revenue from the park...but they don't. They offer a really amazing service...first night free...thereafter, it's $20.
We stayed one night in September and were so grateful to have a place to plug in and escape the heat for the night.
The campground is directly across from their small fair grounds and the night we stayed the community was out for a local event. There was music in the air but it quieted down by around 9 or 10 in the evening. The trains ran all night, but hey...who complains when you can stay for free?
We were able to walk into town and get a bite to eat at a local sports bar. I wish I had written down the name. The people were friendly and because we didn't have to pay for the spot, we felt very generous with the server.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again if passing through. Thanks, Brush! - Ree Klein

This park has free overnight RV parking but donations are accepted. As others have said there is no water available so have some in your tank. Power outlets are mounted on utility poles. When we got here two trashed out trailers were occupying the only two 30 amp sites. They looked like they had been here for months - tires, grills and junk all around them. The rules say that stays are limited to 5 days in a 30 day period. This park is a hangout for local teens and they circled the camping area constantly for hours, revving their engines and playing their radios loudly. We felt like we were the wagon train being circled by Indians. We would have rated the park higher if not for the obnoxious locals who made it a point to bother the campers. They finally went away around 11 PM. The closest restroom was dirty with no door on the toilet stall and the sink built onto the toilet. There is a nicer restroom on the other side of the park. This is a very pretty park with a pond and hiking trails. - PodPeople

We arrived mid afternoon on a Friday and set up. A couple of park employees were very nice and provided me with a construction cone to place next to my slideout since we were parked along side the street. I hooked to a 30 amp box and it worked for about an hour then my surge protector started tripping because of voltage surges. I finally switched to our solar. The park has a very nice setting with a couple of ponds and large grass areas. However, the one restroom we tried use was not clean and had standing water on the floor. The park is located alongside I-76, which was constantly noisy. There is also some kind of a processing plant just across the freeway that emitted sour smells most of the night. There were multiple parties going on until after 1:30 AM with auto stereos blaring especially the bass. We didn't see any security patrolling. The final straw was that at 2 AM we were abruptly awoken by someone banging on our RV door, then running off. We were ill at ease the rest of the night. Maybe staying there on a weeknight might be a different experience. We were very disappointed. - chamaman

If travels take you to I-76 in eastern CO, this small city park is perfect for an overnight stay. This park is WAY superior to overnighting at the local Walmart, AND includes 30A electric. Night time noise from the I and railroad were no bother. The park is very active with locals, as well we noticed a police presence around sunset. This is good. The RV parking area has a donation box - I encourage all those overnighting to give a fair share. - CO2RV
