A nice place to stay close to all the events at the festival. Clean basic campground with very friendly staff members. Were not gouging campers with high rates during the festival like some of the other campgrounds that did not offer much more than some grass, pool etc that we did not need. Rates were reasonable and we enjoyed our... More

We have stayed here several times and will definitely continue to go back. Prior to staying here, we tried Elk meadow a couple of times, but just didn't have positive experiences. With Estes Park campground at Mary's Lake, you get the site that you book, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the sites are clean, well appointed, and overall... More

If you are looking for a quite place close to Estes Park and RMNP but away from the lights and noise of the city but, still want all the conveniences then this just might be the best spot.

From the friendly staff to the location this place is great! We stayed here 3 times now, and never been disappointed. The campgrounds and very specious and the full bathrooms are super clean (yes, full bathrooms with showers that you can use for a few quarters). It has a little shop in the entrance where you check in, and you... More

So peaceful. Lots of families and gatherings. Man, the bathrooms are really clean for this many dirty people. Clean drinking water spickets all around. There's a pool, but it feels a little chilly. Especially, when the wind is blowing.

Friendly staff. Great showers and bathrooms, but the hot water was a bit tricky. Good sites with fire pits. Amazing views and wildlife close by. I would say to anyone looking to get to the Rockies and in an RV or tent camping to try this place out.

We didn't camp here, just used the shower building. We camped in Moraine Campground in RNP where there are no showers. The showers here are a short 2 miles drive from the park entrance. The shower building is very clean & modern. There's a change machine on the side of the building. Showers cost $2 for 6 min but usually... More

We made a last minute reservation when we decided to extend our vacation by a couple days and visit Estes Park. There is nothing fancy about this campground, but the shower houses were extremely clean and the people friendly. The location is off the beaten path so not a lot of road noise, but it's only 5-10 minutes from downtown... More

As a tent camper, we thought that the staff was unusually friendly and competent. The store was well stocked plus ice, firewood and propane were available. Showers were $2 for six minutes but sometimes there was no hot water. Tent sites were modest in size with little or no vegetation as a buffer. Some sites had tent platforms but not... More
