This campground situated just from Estes Park and inside the boundaries of Rocky Mountain National Park offers amazing views from the peaks that result in the park famous. This can be a hard campground to rate, because there are two extremely opposite kinds of sites, and both have their advantages.

Because of the pine beetle infestation, most trees inside the C and D loops happen to be removed, which creates a far more barren, meadow feel towards the campsites, yet simultaneously offer unobstructed views from the peaks. In case you crave a far more secluded, private site, compared to the sites in loops A and B could be your preference, as they‘re set amongst thickly wooded pines. Both the C / D loops and A / B loops are
beautiful with their own way, it is just more within your taste, so we preferred the open, unobstructed sector of camp or slightly wooded sites that also offered views. Camp is placed along a stream, which when snow melt is at its peak, could be heard from most sites. Immaculate restrooms, overflow parking, group areas, picnic tables, fire rings and nice tent pads are found within camp. A little shed where firewood, ice, water and ice cream could be purchased opens each evening. The park and also the town of Estes Park are conveniently accessed via shuttles that run continuously during the day. Several trailheads also lead from camp.
