We loved our stay at this campground. Stayed at A39...very tight and right on top of neighbors. But overall the short time we spent at site was just right. Much better than any hotel stay! Location perfect short drive to RMNP and Estes Park for shopping. Nighttime was extremely quiet after 10 p.m. which made for great sleeping! Hosts were... More

This campground is a great choice if your wanting some nice views and a little piece and quiet. The backside of the campground did appear very tight and probably more suited for tents or a pop up. We had a 24ft trailer and had no problems fitting it in site A34 on the front road. There were a few more... More

We loved our stay at East Portal last week. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful - even loaning the kids fishing poles and tackle to use at the nearby reservoir - the bathrooms clean and full of warm water and the wildlife abundant. We saw deer, elk and chipmunks up close. There were lots of kids there and they immediately... More

We wanted to camp inside Rocky Mountain National Park, but all the campgrounds were booked by the time I was making reservations. This campground, run by Larimer County, turned out to be a good alternative -- perhaps even better with electricity and water at our site, and hot showers available. This is not a destination campground with sites that you... More

Lovely views, clean toilets and a shower, and helpful, hardworking park hosts made this campground was a fun, comfortable home base camp for my family while we explored Rocky Mountain Natl Park and Estes Park for a couple of days. In the campground, we saw plenty of broad-tailed hummingbirds and squirrels, and the one morning I got up before my... More

We have stayed here four times. We see Elk, deer and a view of Longs Peak every morning! Clean showers. Flush toilets. Electricity and water. Quiet hours are enforced. Rumor has it a moose was visiting the campground but we missed it! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

We reserved our campsite months ago on reservations.gov. We were assigned back in site 36. The site would have been fine if not for a tree that sagged to about four feet blocking entry. With the help of Bonnie, our camp host, we tried to back in but caught the tree and tore a gutter down spout off the roof.... More

Staying here after being in Moraine campground was great! The camp is a little smaller, but the amenities (hot showers, clean bathrooms, flushing toilets) and park make this a gem for families. We picked several trail areas to hike on due to their close proximity. It's fairly easy to get into RMNP attractions from this site. We were visited by... More

Don't come to Portal for a "wow" factor. Come for the friendly staff, hot showers, flush toilets, close proximity to RMNP, and electric and water hook-ups for an RV. We were gone most of the day exploring the park so it was really nice coming back to a campground with the amenities listed above. There are overhead wires, bumpy gravel... More
