It's an old KOA with camping cabins and the tent area is on an island surrounded by the Yampa river. I don't know if KTM could reserve the entire island. The free bus to town uses the campground as a turn around but I don't think it runs late at night. That means everyone would have to drive to town to eat, drink, and be merry.

I have stayed at the campground Dave mentioned, I believe it is also a trailer park (was many years ago when I was there) ,I remember people picking the bus up there to ride to work/school and it was not too early in the morning. It was a decent place then. I mostly remote camp where ever I decided to drop a kick stand. But for those that dont need flush toilets are there many national forest campgrounds ? Maybe one could be targeted ? I know its probably a crap shoot, I dont know if you can reserve those, here again if in the national forest you can camp anywhere. Rough camping is a bit more fun and generally you can grab showers at a hotel or campground for a few bucks if you sweet talk the person at the desk, even a gym if there is one in town that has showers ? Colorado Streams dont offer much in the way of relaxing warm water bathing, but they do the trick if you dont want to offend your new friends. Just some thoughts.
