We will be in Colorado the end of June and beginning of July. Our friends have a cabin up in the Rockies near Winterpark. There are some camprground listed but our TT is 35 ft. long and most sites say max length 32 ft. I'm hoping we don't have to make a long drive everyday to hang out with our friends. Any suggestions wouuld be great.

This whole area is a popular place in the summer. The closest CG that might accomodate your rig is Idlewild CG, right near town. Here is a description from Forest Camping that gives the average pad length as 33', meaning some are longer. But it will be tight. Road noise will be an issue. I often use the Forest Camping site to get a better understanding of the actual pad lengths, as they have gone and measured all the pads and give an average length. So for St. Louis Creek outside of Fraser, they show the average length as 36', while the USFS says 25'-35'.

Have your friends investigate for you ahead of time. Otherwise, for NFS CG's your best bet will be up by Granby Reservoir. There are several CG's there capable of taking your rig, although the drive to Winter Park will get old.

Our friends said we could park it in front of their cabin but I don't think they realize how big our trailer is. We had someone mention Kremmling being about 45 minute drive. We are staying in Wheatridge from June 24- 1st of July and I don't want to be driving from there to Winterpark over the weekend of July 4th.
