Upon driving up to this campground, you will be visually greeted by a huge garbage dumpster and a purple port-a-potty. If you are fortunate to get a campsite with a view of the mountains, it will be marred by a rickety swing set and mini climbing wall which serves as a small playground for children. These are the first cues... More

Campground is at the end of a road and boarders Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). At the edge of the campground you can easily access the hiking trails into the RMNP. With a 10 minute drive you can be at the main gate to the RMNP or in down town Estes Park. The camp ground is well treed and your... More

This was or first tent camping experience in many years. We found an Ozark pop-up 9x13 cabin tent and a Coleman queen blow up bed at WalMart and headed for Colorado. We booked ahead at Estes Park Campground and were met by Flo at the check-in desk. She could not have been more helpful and got us settled into a... More

We came here with some families from our church this past weekend. I had read reviews about it being on a mountain with slanted sites, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Camping is not a frequent activity for us either being new to CO, so my rating may be off not being a "professional camper". The tent sites are... More

Unless you're tent camping, sites are cramped and often difficult to get your rig in to. The road is not well maintained. Facilities are inadequate for the number of campers. The fee is relatively high, but does not translate into quality facilities. If you can get into a National Park campground, do it. At least, you'll get what you've paid... More

We camped here with my 4 adults and 4 kids and 2 babies at A01 and we had an awesome time. The bathrooms were clean and easy to get to. The playground is very basic but the kids didn't care. They played there for hours each day between times that we spent doing other things nearby. We took the free... More

My family and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the East Portal Campground. Last year we camped at a different site in Estes and had a great experience and decided to try a different spot. We regret our decision. We have a pop-up camper, and the spot we were given (A55) was VERY tiny and not level.... More

Be ready for rustic outdoor living. We have been across country 2x and this was one of the worst. Not unbearable just not good. 1 bathroom for 100 campers??? Not clean. Dont miss the trailhead to Sprague Lake from the campground.

This is our family's "go to" campground! When we got our own pop up this year it was of course the first place we booked! This campground has great spots that are nestled in the trees and some that have open views of the mountains. Just a short drive into Estes and RMNP, the camp hosts are always friendly and... More
