  • Great place to visit while you're at RMNP
  • Beautiful spot in Rocky Mountain National Park. Easy home on level ground around the lake. Views of the mountains are awesome.
  • One of the most beautiful locations in the Rocky Mountains. Easily accessible from the parking place on the other side of the road enjoy a short hike around the lake, go for a swim or even take your boat and relax on the water. Watch out for the countless Axolotls in the water at the shore!
  • A great walk for families but take the time to do the ridge hike also.
  • Beautiful walk. Easy, flat, about a mile. Gorgeous sunrise on Long's Peak and Mt Meeker.

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.
