  • On the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park as you enter you might try to pull off and see a portion of the park that does not always get a look at. You have a rock slide area, some waterfalls if you want to do a little exploring and then when open and if you have a vehicle that can travel over it you can try the old freight and stagecoach trail used in the late 1800's to get over the Mountains to the towns of North Western Colorado. Take your time and enjoy the scenery. It is only a one way trail so stop and look back at times.
  • Love love this place. We came at the end of Sept abs the Aspen have turned golden. just park your car on the roadside and walk across into the field. Beautiful!
  • Be sure to visit it at Dusk or Dawn to see some wildlife. Need ample patience before you can witness it.
  • Great place to get away
  • Like many National Forests, pets aren't allowed on trails. But, in the fall when the campgrounds close the roads behind locked gates are ideal.

Where to stay in Rocky Mountain National Park

Camping offers one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the nature of Rocky Mountain National Park. The park offers more than 500 individual sites spread out over five developed campgrounds, and wilderness camping expands your options even further. Many visitors stay in the eastside gateway town of Estes Park, where you can choose from lodges, resorts, economy motels, small inns, bed and breakfasts, and cabins. The town features a lake and views of the park's sharp peaks. On the park's western side, a handful of lodges, inns, cabins, and motels are clustered around Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake. You'll also find campgrounds around Lake Granby.
