Great Camping

I tend to like campgrounds that are less popular, but we camped here the first week in October, and it was the only campground open. We camped in the snow so it was cold but it was fun. There is a lot of hiking near here and the elk are fantastic. I will say it cost $30 for entry into the RMNP and then $26 to camp, so be aware of this before you come! I would definitely recommend camping here in the winter or when it is snowing.

Great place for camp!

Beautiful campground in RMNP. Even though the campground was full, it was still quiet. Camped in the A loop which provided nice mountain views from our site.

Go for a site along the outside

A beautiful campground that can get super busy in the summer. Take the time to plan your trip early and go for a site far from the entrance and along the outside and you won't be disturbed by anything other than the elks bugle-ing too loudly in the meadows below you.
