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

Our family (2 7 year olds and 4 year old) stayed 7 nights. Campground is clean, great showers, laundry room is easily available and nice. The owners live on site and make a great effort to keep the campgrounds family friendly. The kids loved the playground, stream, game room and TV sitting area. Two moose walked through our campsite!

We were disappointed. The website and the owner/hosts were misleading about the quality of the available RV sites. Here is the deal with this place - there are some nice sites at this campground, but the owner caters to regular customers who book a full year or more in advance. We noticed several campers booking their stay for next year... More

The owners work hard to keep this facility in great condition and the amenities like hot showers and a large double outdoor sink for dish clean up are hard to beat. The cabins looked very nice and the RV sites were also nice. The limited tent sites, however, were a bit disappointing. They are all crowded together so privacy is... More

We stayed for two nights in a cabin at Elk Creek and it was a top-rate campground experience; no frills, but everything you need. Our cabin was spotless, there were two comfortable chairs on the porch, a fire ring and a picnic table, and comfortable beds inside. The camp store is well merchandised and the employees and owners are fun... More

We stayed here for a couple of days so our grandchildren could do some horseback riding and enjoy the area. There were two campgrounds we considered, but after visiting the other campground, we thought this was the best choice. It was nestled in a creek area that was reputed to be the home of many elk, although we did not... More

We love everything about this place! The family who own and run the place are caring and wonderful. Their dog is super sweet too! The bathrooms (with showers) are clean. There is a lounge/TV room which is a nice place to connect to wifi if you need it. There's a cute little game room. There is also a playground for... More

I stayed in a tent cabin for a week this summer and it was fabulous. I camped in a tent last summer here but upgraded to a cabin this year. Hard to believe you can rent an adorable one bedroom cabin 1/2 mile from Rocky Mountain National Park and an easy 1 .3 mile walking trail from the beautiful town... More
