We stayed in A27, which had ample space for parking and backed up to the trees. The whole campground, including the bathroom areas, was clean and well tended. The staff was very friendly and provided great information on local trails. The campsite is right across from a trail head that splits off into a number of great day hikes (we... More

We had a large tent in site A19, but the ground was complete rock. It was on the outside of the grounds so it was very rocky. We couldn't get our tent up! We checked in at noon as the reservation requested and we worked for 2.5 hours trying to get our stakes into the ground. When we did get... More

With this small camper I had no issues navigating through to our site. The rest rooms were very clean. The staff were very... More

Camp was overcrowded. Dusty and unlevel camp sights. Shower area not bad, but not enough showers for campers. They didn't enforce quiet time at all. Location was good. Food lockers were a good idea. I'd look elsewhere, there were so many campgrounds nearby.

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
