Where to stay, while you play.

If you are starting your vanlife adventure out of Denver, we highly recommend you check out the most legendary music venue in the nation.

Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, this venue has a clear view of the sparkling lights of Denver, while being nestled between beautiful rock formations. Camping on site is prohibited but we have listed three campgrounds with full facilities near Red Rocks for you to check out.

Here is a list of upcoming events for this season.

Golden Gate Canyon State Park

Not the closest, but the prettiest. The location is worth the extra drive, as there are 35 miles of multi-use trails for hiking and biking. If you have the time, we highly recommend the 7-mile Mountain Lion Trail, otherwise sit back and enjoy the views. You’ll get to experience all of Colorado in a single hike. Just make sure you secure your ride to and from in case tailgating is involved prior to the show.

Things to Know:

  1. Tickets to Red Rocks shows sell out fast. AXS is the ticketing service provider. We highly recommend you secure tickets way in advance!
  2. Be prepared for a hike to get to your seats.
  3. Bring extra layers and a rain jacket. There is nothing worse than getting caught in a storm during your favorite song!
  4. Red Rocks sit at 6,450 ft. Drink lots of water and take things slow.
  5. We hope you enjoy the campgrounds right next to Red Rocks!
