"We like to send a mailer:" Welcome to National Lampoon Vacation's Kamp Komfort



Vacation_campground Hey, fans of National Lampoon's Vacation! Special treat for you today from Stuck in the '80s correspondent and former guest host Chase Squires. Yes, he stopped by the infamous Kamp Komfort featured in the 1983 film, starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo. Here's his report:

Greetings, Stuck in the 80s fans. The wife and I did a real Chevy Chase style road trip this past week, traveled hours out of the way just to visit Four Corners (in the middle of nowhwere and delightfully craptacular), the whole thing's on my blog.

But we had one real '80s moment, thought you'd get a kick out of. Just west of the tiny town of Southfork, Colo., is the Riverbend Resort. A campground ... yep, it's actually the setting for Kamp Komfort, where the Griswald's stayed, and where Dinky ultimately met his demise ...

I've attached a photo. The campground is right along Highway 160, can't miss it. The office looks like it's the same one from the film. They have some nice cabins (nothing like the ones in the movie) and a lot of RVs. Cabins start at $70 a night. We might go back and stay there someday.
