Spent 4 nights at Moraine Campground with an excellent campsite. We attended one ranger talk there. The lack of a shower room was the only drawback. With the senior park pass, sites cost just $13 per night. Rode the free shuttle to Bear Lake and added a 6-mile hiking loop including Alberta Falls. Drove Ridge Road to the tundra near... More

The park had days worth of activities, and you were able to drive to see some amazing views. There are several short and long hikes, and is usable by everybody. Anybody can find something to do here, and it was one of the prettiest places i have ever been.

This park is stunning. There are short, easy walking trials and there are intense, difficult trails. We visited in June and the short trails were crowded, but shuttle buses were provided for overflow parking. There was still a lot of snow and ice on the ground, but our family was able to hike anyway. You should always plan for changing... More

it is nice in the Summer to go into the national park and see snow on the ground and cooler temps. The walking is slow and steady and cane be done. You can see rams going up the mountain side.

Definitely take the peak-to-peak highway from Denver then take the Trail ridge road that cuts across the park from Estes Park to Grand Lake. Such beautiful vistas of mountain ranges, valleys and wildlife. We saw lots of Elks and Moose. We hiked from bear lake to Emerald lake the following morning. Start early as this place gets very crowded. Yo... More

This place is gorgeous. Get your family outside. There are way too many options from short to long hikes. Just remember the park gets busier as the day goes on and afternoon thunderstorms are common. Pack accordingly. Little to no water available in the park and bring plenty of food or snacks.

This was a lovely way to pass the day with family. We saw a longhorn elk and the kids got to play in the snow in late June. What could be more fun?

This was our first visit to Fort Collins, Colorado. We were visiting a friend who moved here two years ago, so she has had time to scope things out! She recommended we spend the day in Rocky Mountain National Park. She didn't steer us wrong! Luckily she had a one year pass which cost her $40. However it only costs... More

We just never get tired of visiting RMNP. We like the "quiet side" of the park, the Grand lake side. Less people, beautiful scenery, lots Of wild life. Watch out for animals crossing the roads, especially in the early summer. They have not seen cars for the whole long winter! We witnessed what happens when a moose crosses the road... More

Such beautiful scenery throughout the park. We couldn't go over the Trail Ridge highway because of snow. The lower portions of the park were amazing. No crowds in mid May. Loved the experience.
