Our family loved our campsite, #95. It had an open view of Longs Peak, was next to the flush toilets and dish washing station, had great boulders behind us for the kids to climb on and sit and read on. Some sites were a bit crowded but overall each site had plenty of room. There are minimal low bushes so there is not a lot of privacy from other sites but that also means you can see the mountains, the deer and elk as they wander through. Some sites don't have mountain views but each loop does have some sites with views. The sites without views tend to be nestled into a small nook providing more privacy. There are no showers but if you bring a solar shower or large jug of water they do provide 2 outdoor shower stalls.
The campground is also close to nice trails, about 7 or so miles from Bear Lake which had my favorite hike with incredible views between Nymph Lake and Dream Lake. Alberta Falls in the area also very nice.
We checked out Aspenglen Campground, which was small and pleasant but did not have the views of this campground.
