“Probably the best private option in Estes Park”

Reviewed Jun 27, 2016

Overall Rating

When we were planning our trip to Estes park / Rocky Mountain National Park, the Jelleystone of Estes Park really looked to be the best 'private campground' option in the area. For a private campground we felt that the sites were very spacious and there were lots of trees. For us both of those are worth a lot.

The campground is located just outside Estes Park (about 6 minutes), which gets you into the trees and mountains just enough that you feel separated. We really enjoyed this separation and when we needed stuff the town was just a few minutes away. Accessing the campground was easy and the checkin process was simple. The entryway can get a bit crowded, but the staff is quite good at getting people in and out. We had an escort to our site who gave good backing directions to get us tucked right in.

There is a wide range in sites and site quality here. If you are in a smaller rig and get into some of the purple sites, there are some great ones. We camped in the full hookup section which seemed to not be as nice as the water/electric section. The biggest advantage is the sites in the full hookup area are easier to get in and out of (for the most part). Our favorite site was 67. We had some leveling issues in site 68 and there was really no good place to setup chairs around the fire ring.

The campground is set into the natural landscape and as such, it is not flat. You will get a workout just walking around the campground. They do rent golf carts but we felt that they were very overpriced. Getting from the pool to site 14 is something that might require a few breaks along the journey.

The main focus of this campground is kids with many activities and amenities targeting a younger demographic. We did notice that even though the campground was full during the week, there were many more planned activities for the kids on the weekend. The staff all seemed quite nice and were easy to work with. I would have expected a bit more enthusiasm from them given the type of campground that this is, but overall they were all quite nice.

We saw no enforcement of quiet hours while we were there. We had neighbors that were up well past midnight laughing and carrying on by their fire multiple nights. We did however see a lot of attention from the maintenance department. They were always around working and addressing small issues which we saw as a very good thing.

All in all we liked this campground and would likely stay here again. Not so much for the "Jellystone" experience, but because we felt it was really the best option in the area.

When picking campground in our area we generally tend to favor the ones that allow for more separation between sites and have a tone of trees.  During our trip planning for Rocky Mountain Natio...
