Beautiful but crowded

RMNP is hopping in the summer and with good reason obviously. This spot gives you great access to bear lake and surrounding trails. Hard to score a reservation during the summer.

Camping and living

A lot of Park Service housing is in Moraine - it's the easiest to access, so beautiful, and a really open feeling stretch of the park.

Great Campground

Listening to elk bugle each morning and evening was amazing. Being able to have a corner spot next to valley was a highlight, and I could walk down a quick trail to the river for excellent fly fishing.

Great Camping

I tend to like campgrounds that are less popular, but we camped here the first week in October, and it was the only campground open. We camped in the snow so it was cold but it was fun. There is a lot of hiking near here and the elk are fantastic. I will say it cost $30 for entry into the RMNP and then $26 to camp, so be aware of this before you come! I would definitely recommend camping here in the winter or when it is snowing.

Great place for camp!

Beautiful campground in RMNP. Even though the campground was full, it was still quiet. Camped in the A loop which provided nice mountain views from our site.
