“Nicer than I was expecting”

Overall Rating

This is a really nice campground in the Rocky Mountain National Park with fantastic views. We were expecting most of the camp sites to be wide open with limited trees due to the pine beetle infestation that hit the area pretty hard, and that was the case for the C and D loops, but the views from those sites was spectacular. Our site (A015) was on the end of the A loop where there are still plenty of trees to provide some shade but still nice views of the mountains. There was a mix of sites stacked pretty close together and some with enough space to provide a little privacy. The only reason I don't give this a 5 star review is that there were quite a few sites that were pretty close to each other. Our neighbors were not too close, and there was nothing behind us but a hill with young pine trees and a trail halfway up. The campground was pretty quiet and the bathrooms were kept clean. At the entrance to the campground is a shuttle stop where you can catch a ride down to the Estes Park visitors center or up to Bear Lake and several stops in between. All in all, this was a pleasant surprise and definitely worth returning to.
