Our original plan was to stay here for 2 nights in a tent. Our actual experience was 2 nights in a tent plus 2 nights in a cabin and we couldn't get enough of the place. It is amazing! It has everything a camper needs and more. Our first night was a nightmare since we weren't prepared for the freezing... More

Our family traveled over Trail ridge Road to see what Grand Lake had to offer and we were not disappointed. Elk Creek was accommodating from the get go. We had to push our reservations back a week because of uncooperative weather, when we arrived they gave us a great site that they recommended, and then the following day we upgraded... More

We tent camped here for a week and loved the area. It's close to the park and Grand Lake. The bathrooms were close by and clean. They had a nice TV room and a game room with a pool table. There was plenty of parking spaces. We also got to see a moose in the campground. Quiet time started at... More

We stayed at an RV site. The sites were nice, somewhat secluded by bushes. Bathrooms are clean. There is a playground for kids. We literally had a moose and her calf in our camp one afternoon around 1pm. Nice place with nice staff. Would stay again.

We stayed here for 5 nights to hike in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. Although we were in a camper cabin, they had RV sites and tent camping sites. The location (VERY important) is ideal, just off 34, just outside of the town of Grand Lake on the way to the park entrance (less than 2 miles distant). They... More

We stayed here one night- in the Tipi. My family thought it was fun ( 2 adults, 3 kids under 6.) The campground is really close to Grand Lake, but still pretty quiet. All the campsites are walk up- you park in the parking lot. They do provide a large farm cart to haul your things back and forth. The... More

My daughter and I stayed at Elk Creek for two days before starting a seven day backcountry backpacking trip in Rocky Mountain National Park. Rebecca and her family were so helpful and made us feel very much at home. The reservation process was professional. All of the tent sites were booked so they gave us an RV site so we... More

The Elk Creek Campground website had enough information that we decided to call and make a Reservation. We were able to book the Tipi for a 2 day, last minute camping trip. Because we are very prepared campers, we suspected the Tipi had a tarp or dirt floor; a quick call back confirmed it has a Tarp floor. Their webpage... More

We booked 2 nights in the one Tipi that they have on property. It sounded like a good idea in theory. The construction of the Tipi itself was pretty amazing---not a single nail or piece of plastic, all natural materials. However, the love affair with the Tipi ends there. For starters, there is no floor! No floor! Just an inadequate... More

We are at Elk Creek for the second year in a row. We love the experience. We have a 34 ft travel trailer and had no problems parking. We have seen moose every day and our grandsons love the playground area as well as the game room. Many sites are very private ( we are in 16) and are right... More
