Nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, this campground is a stone's throw away from Mary's Lake. All types of campers, from the touring-abode community to the adventurous tent-dwellers, escape from the city life here. Whether you prefer the relaxation of a fishing pole and a chair, the energy-depleting magic of the small but delightfully heated pool, the close proximity to the town of Estes Park for shopping or dining, or the rare but necessary opportunities for bonding with your family and friends around the campfire, it's easy to pass the time.

This campground requires camping permits, and is open May 15 to October 15. At 8,000 feet in elevation, it is located south of Estes Park, Colorado.
