We stayed for one night in September. Fire helped with the cold mountain night. We got in around 6:30 pm, so had enough light to put up the tent with beautiful sun before it hid behind the mountains. The area closer to the mountains loses the sun first, but also gains it first in the morning. We got a spot... More

I can't say enough about this campground. We drove through the others on the other side of the park and they hardly compare to the open valley views you get with Timber Creek. And waking up to wildlife walking through camp!!! Wow...I will be back!

We were hoping we could get in on a 1st come 1st serve campsite and got lucky with Timber Creek on a Saturday morning. Our spot was towards the back against some trees so we had some shade, although we were gone most of the day so the sun wouldn't have mattered too much anyway. The sites have nice cement... More

Although the field is quite open so you can see your neighbors, space between the sites is enough to feel like you have good privacy. The views will also detract for looking around. We chose a spot close to the trail to the river for it's proximity to it, big trees to relax under for shade and the bathrooms that... More

We are new to camping (only had our tent for 2 months and used twice) so I don't have much to compare it against, but I brought our tent along hoping to find a chance to use it. After driving the Trail Ridge Road and being mesmerized by the beauty I pulled in just to check out the site. Amazingly... More

The campground is first come-first serve; we arrived late morning and there were still some spots available. A nice family that was packing up saw us looking and let us know we could have there spot as they were leaving. So nice!! We paid and set up once they left. Rangers frequently patrolled and were extremely friendly and gracious. We... More

My boyfriend and I made the trip through Estes Park and decided to stay at Timber Creek for the evening to camp. The size of the campground was perfect and due to the time of year was fairly busy. The campsites were pretty close however we still had our privacy. They offered clean bathrooms with running water and electricity. It... More

Stayed one night at Timber Creek over Fathers Day weekend 2015 with my husband and another couple. Even though the entrance board to the park said the campground was filled, it was not, there were TONS of open spots. Trees have been removed due to beetle kill but the campground was still nice and had good scenery. Bathrooms were clean... More

Because of the pine bark beetle infesting the lodgepole pines that once dominated Timber Creek Campground, the Park Service had to remove almost all of the trees--all dead or dying--to prevent them from falling on people and vehicles as hazard trees. So the campground is wide open. No privacy when you are outside...but I did not find this to be... More

If you want to be constantly watched and harassed then this is the campground for you. Their wannabe park ranger volunteer Donnie Balance does nothing but run around in her golf cart looking for campground violators!!! No generators except certain times; dogs on leashes; and watch those elk - they travel at 35 mph don't ya know!!! And that isn't... More
