We camped at Moraine Campground in June 2009. The campground is very close to the park entrance which makes it quick to get in and out to Estes Park. It was also nice not having to drive to far in to Rocky Mountain while towing a camper. We dropped off the camper and went out to explore. This campground is close to so much. There are horse riding stables and a few trailheads within walking distance. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. The bathrooms are adequate. There's no hot water, but at least there's running water. They seemed to have done a pretty good job keeping them clean. Just make sure and bring the GermX and you'll be ok. The view of Long's Peak every morning when waking up was just incredible. We have 3 young kids who absolutely enjoyed the trip. There's so many animals to keep them entertained. We were very unhappy that we forgot our marshmallow roasters, but we were able to get one. A nice man operates a store of sorts. He sells soda, water, kindling, fire wood and even has ice cream bars. I told him that I forgot the roasters and he lent me one. There's nothing like smores after a long day of hiking! We enjoyed the trip so much that we have all ready booked a return trip in August. One word of advice is to book ahead!! This place will book up well before summer.
