Great beach areas

Like to come here to The beaches off of the campground. Public Beach is nice with shaded outdoor tables and small food vender small store and SUP rentals. They close EARLY in the day so be prepared. I think 4:30 or 5:00pm. Easy access Dump Station with fresh water fill located along all the campground loops and marked on map. All asphalt driveway pull through sites with larger gravel set up areas. Picnic tables and fire pit. Multiple Clean flushing toilets bathrooms and nice coin showers. Shade trees mixed around and large common areas in between the loops for your games. Playground and horse shoes. Beach Area access off of the campground loops walking path. Sand is soft and finer consistency. Bring a wagon to haul shade items, inflatables and chairs. Can be a walk depending on water level. Call ranger station to verify the water levels. Patrolled well by CPW Rangers.

Oasis near the city

We like coming here to camp and fish. Electric hook ups on North campground and some full hookups on the south one. North side has matured shade trees though out and the large Shower House. South side has no trees. Has clean vault toilets and easy access Dump Station with potable fresh water fill at the ends pay attention to the signs because non-potable water is at the center Dump area. Book 6 months ahead! No Swimming or wading allowed in water only non motorized SUP, kayaks or belly boats. Patrolled very well by CPW staff and Park Rangers. Day use areas and good fishing spots fill up quick with locals so set up early. It is near I-25 highway so there is road traffic noise but becomes background noise after a day or so. But if that bothers you you won’t like it. Beautiful fishing ponds with very healthy aquatic ecosystem. Many species of water fowl and lake animals. Mosquitoes are out at dawn and dusk so wear bug protection. It is very pretty to walk around the paths on the North side areas. Crazy it’s so beautiful and close to all needs like gas and groceries.

Mary's Lake Estes Park, CO

Great staff and great people!! Big area and right across the road from the Lake so easy walk. Has super clean bathroom showers and facilities. Cute very well stocked store with anything you might need from tons of camping gear to OTC medicines, clean laundry room, clean outdoor pool, free outdoor large hot water sink areas to wash dishes and such. Nice safe playground and relaxing pool. No WI-FI signal at all but some cell services (Verizon). Staff quickly Clean open camp sites scooping fire pits, washed down picnic tables and even picked up teeny tiny trash in the grass and bushes! Many sites have little to no shade so really hot during daytime. Site #135 is nice with good shade. It is a busy place so you must make reservations in advance!!
