Fourth or fifth time staying here. We Love getting away from the crowds. Last time here a bear wandered through the camp, nothing this year. When you look at the campgrounds in Estes Park wedged in like sardines it makes you appreciate having so much room to stretch out. It's quiet during the "shoulder season" , IE, after the kids have gone back to school, which is right up our alley. That said, be forewarned that the well ran dry sometime around the first of August. It burned out the pump and they have no idea when it will be fixed. The parks service isn't too high on the federal radar for spending so don't expect a quick fix. You need to climb up here with a lot of water on board. By the way, there is a five star restaurant in Allenspark a mile away called he Fawn Brook Inn. It's pricey but you won't often find a five star in a town of 200 people. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Olive Ridge is a Forest Service campground. It's nice and quiet and nicely wooded with some huge Ponderosa pines. The hosts are quite friendly and the vault toilets stink like any other vault toilets (hence the 9 rating). There are no electric or water or sewer hookups and there is no dump station. You won't find the "big rigs" here - only tent campers and "dry" trailer campers, pop-ups and truck campers. And kids, of course. Camping is very much about the kids. You will find it on Colorado Highway 7, outside of Lyons, CO, between Allenspark and Meeker Park at mile marker 12. Elevation is 8,350 ft., so the nights are crisp. You can get into Rocky Mountain National Park very nearby at the Wild Basin entrance. The Wild Basin Events Center is right there at the entrance and looks like a nice place for a retreat or a mountain wedding/reception. There is one little store in Meeker Park and a horse stable with trail riding available just up the hill and there are a few quaint places in Allenspark just down the hill. There's a coffee shop, little restaurant and livery there too. This area was ravaged by flooding due to large amounts of rain in September 2013 and the road was closed for many months so the owners of the small businesses in Allenspark are very friendly and appreciative of the tourists stopping by and dropping a buck or two. We stayed in the Sneezewood loop #33 for the weekend and if I go again I will probably choose #34. There are many great campsites in this campground. Wild flowers and wildlife (elk, deer, the ever-present ground squirrel, and many many humming birds) are plentiful. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
