  • It has its amazing views and sight to high mountains around it. I loved it.
  • Nice little hike for kids. No big hills and stroller friendly. Lots of wildlife.
  • Nice peaceful trail but no dogs allowed which is unfortunate.
  • Great stop along the Peak to Peak highway for a picnic lunch. Walk around the lake and enjoy views of Longs Peak.
  • A simply gorgeous place for a walk, hike, or picnic with a friend.

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.
