Interesting to see elk - maybe not so much the bear but they are around where there are people, so it is inevitable. The owners seemed nice but offered to send photos that they took of my trailer with two elk calves near it - and never did. My small trailer does not have a toilet, and it is a... More

This campground has it all. Great sites with a lot of trees, tons of things to do...It was clean, especially the sites, bathrooms and showers. We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet, peaceful, fun campground. We stayed for over a month! Do not hesitate to stay here, you will not regret it!

I drove to the area to make sure of a good camp sight for a nice fall retreat with my wife. They had me drive around the park to pick one of the open sights for our weekend, & I reserved it &'paid a down payment to assure it. When getting there they had rented the reserved spot to a... More

Rebecca D, Owner at Elk Creek Campground and RV Park, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that your requested site was given away to a larger camper. We are a small 50 site campground and we pride ourselves on our customer service. Our shortfall as a small campground is that we do try to approach each individual reservation as a special request, but at times it simply must come down to proper logistics.... More

My husband and I spent two nights in a cabin at Elk Creek after tent camping in RMNP for a few nights before. We did not make a reservation in advance as we wanted flexibility in our stay on the western side of the park in terms of arrival, departure, etc...After arriving in Grand Lake, we decided to visit Elk...

Very clean and organized. Beautiful and clean facilities. Great staff. There was a miscommunication on what we were getting, and they took care of it. Very professional. Quiet atmosphere with mountains in the background. Wifi didn't reach our spot but oh well.

We only had a one night stay but we plan on going back. Great natural surroundings with plenty of wildlife and sooo peaceful and calm and still 3 minutes to town.This is a family run business and they were friendly and efficient. We arrived on the day of a local celebration and parade yet we checked in with no trouble... More

Hands down one of the best campground camping experiences I have had. Neat as a pin, quiet and the staff is beyond friendly and accommodating. The common areas are all well maintained and super clean.

After camping across the western US for 20 years, I would rank this as my 2nd favorite campground. The property is adjacent to the national park. The sites are natural and moose frequent the campsites. We had a bull moose 15 feet behind the camper when I woke up. Because the campground is built into a hill, you should be... More

We were very impressed with the facilities - nice, clean shower house, well-maintained campsites. We tent-camped at Elk Creek and would definitely go back. The tent sites are tucked across the stream. You park and carry in 10-50 yards over little bridges. The owners are very nice and helpful. The location is an outstanding staging ground for the Rocky Mountain... More
