Some History:  Colorado Campground and Lodge Owners Association (CCLOA)

Since 1968, CCLOA (Colorado Campground and Lodge Owners Association) has represented Colorado's RV parks, campgrounds and lodges. Operating as a not-for-profit trade association, CCLOA provides a "helping hand" to its members with a broad network of support services. CCLOA showed its great instincts when it became the first state hospitality camping association to add cabin resorts and mountain lodges to its membership. Most Colorado campgrounds and RV parks have cabins and/or rentals and, since camps and lodges all have similar operational needs and features, CCLOA knew they would all benefit from this association.


From all the members of the Colorado Campground & Lodging Owners Association, we extend a warm welcome and invite you spend some time with us! Please visit for more member benefits.
