A lovely wooded campground literally on the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park - we even saw moose from the back window of our RV! Options for everyone from cabins, to FHU RV sites (limited and not the ideal locations, but still nice), water/electric sites and tenting areas. Even Conestoga wagons! There is horseback riding on site and we loved watching the horses run in and out each morning/evening and you just have to cross the road for a pretty hike along the Colorado River in RMNP (no dogs on the trails). We camped with our Great Dane - very dog friendly with bag stations around the park. Friendly and helpful staff, a small shop with supplies and souvenirs, a cute little petting zoo with goats, sheep, and pigs.
Clean restrooms and friendly staff. Not a lot of natural shade so be sure to bring your own. Get up early if you don’t want to fight crowds at the lakes for water activities. Trail ride at sunset was a lit of fun and the sunsets did not disappoint.
Overall a great campground to stay at. The spaces are large, but quite close to one another with few trees for privacy. Each site here is variable, with some open with no trees and others nestled in some mature trees. Flush toilets and running water in the bathrooms. I’d avoid a site right next to the bathroom as the lights and hand dryers are running at night which are bright and loud, respectively. Dishwashing sink and drinking water sink available throughout campsites. Make sure you have a strong tent as some days may have 35+ mph winds rolling thru the campground (several tents collapsed/broke on a windy day here). About a 10 minute walk to the shuttle that takes you to Bear Lake and Glacier Gorge trailheads. Direct walking access to a couple easy lake trails, including Sprague Lake that is good for seeing wildlife at dusk. Firewood and ice sold most nights at the campground.
I had my hesitations with this site as a few mentioned the lack of privacy due to the shorter and more sporadic trees, but I was so grateful for that openness. The views are incredible from every site on the ground—hawks above, prairie dogs on the ground, beautiful mountain skyline. Even spotted a coyote in the distance. As long as you don’t mind running to the nearby bathrooms to go, you’ll find that everyone keeps to themselves on the grounds. Definitely not as private as sites I’ve had in the past, but it was worth it for the views. Not to mention the lake a few steps away. If you’re there for a couple nights, you’ll definitely want to bring a canopy for the lack of shade.
We arrived on a Thursday & there was already a bunch of people. One guy was complaining to us how he has camped there for 20 years & now can’t get a spot. The river sites were dirty & there was lots of trash. Also some water bottles & 2x4 lumber in the water
Not only is it located inside the south side of Rocky Mountain Nat park, but a wonderful RV facility. A+ on staff/store and bathroom/showers. Many activities to choose from. Horseback rides, jeeping tours, biking and rafting. Not to mention all the great hiking trails. Definitely recommend for families.
