Cawthon R.V. Park & Motel

Come as a Stranger, Leave a Friend!


Cawthon Park is a unique blend of permanent homes as well as rv sites, cabins or motel rooms for those needing temporary stay.

Located in the foothills of the Rockies on the old Historic Santa Fe Trail.

 Cawthon Park was built in the early 30's. Some say there are ties to Al Capone and his gang!

We are old, but we are clean and friendly! Come stay with us and see for yourself.

From the RV Park to the Mobile Home section to the cabins and motel, you're sure to find accommodations to suit your needs.

Cawthon Park also has a storage facility on site with 10x10 and 10x20 storage units available.

Professionally managed by Rusty & Michelle Goodall, we welcome you!!
