We enjoyed our stay here. The view from our 5th wheel was great with mountains all around. We would stay here again. It was centrally located between Estes Park and RMNP. The only thing is on the weekend when it was full the sites are very close and crowded. We have a big trailer and it was difficult to get into our space. We were told though that the campground is being redone this year. Hopefully they will make more pull-through spots and not have trailers so close to one another. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

We don't really have any complaints about this park. Location was great and the sites were a decent sized. We had a pull-through site (site 9). It was a double sized site with the picnic table being on a concrete pad. We were happy to see fire pits were at the individual sites. The campground itself has very few trees, so you are getting the parking lot look and the dirt roads could use some grading. It's a basic campground but is great for exploring the park and town. The price isn't cheap but for the area I think it's a decent enough value. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Good, basic, no-frills campground with 3 distinct areas for camping. There's the usual rows of pull-through sites for those wanting full hookups, with the sites fairly close together. There is also a W/E only area, that's primarily back in sites, with more space in between in some areas, but other sites a bit close together. This area also has a few boondocking sites with no hookups. There is also a separate tent area with no frills/hookups; tents are, however, allowed in the W/E area. Sites are generally level, dirt/gravel mix throughout the park. Utility hookups are conveniently located, no difficulties in hooking up at all. There's also a dump station on site as well for those using the W/E sites. Showers/restrooms have always been clean and up-to-date; the showers are pay ($2 in quarters for 6 minutes), but have always had plenty of hot water and the time has always been sufficient...just don't dally! One thing to be aware of -- it can get windy there at times. Because of the location, there's a bit of a swirl to the wind, coming in at different directions. Not a good idea to leave awnings out unless they are really anchored down well, and even then, consider taking the awning in if you're going to be away from the site for any length of time. Convenient to the entrance to RMNP or to downtown Estes Park, there's a shuttle that can take you downtown, or up to Bear Lake in RMNP. Price is the most reasonable in Estes Park. It's the same price for full hookups or Water/Electric only, at $37/night. It's $27 for no hookups/tenting area. The campground is very popular on the weekends and reservations are recommended, but during the week, it's pretty easy to get a walk in site w/o reservations. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful views, very quiet, free shuttle into town. Roads and sites are gravel and in pretty good shape, sites seem fairly level although not perfect. Bath houses are new, but too far from our site, plus showers were pay-to-play. Wi-Fi VERY inconsistent and we were right next to a repeater. However, this is a great no-frills campground and we enjoyed our stay. Great campground hosts! We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

This is a bare-bones RV park. It is minimally maintained and weedy. The roads had some rutted areas, and the Wi-Fi was absolutely useless. The Wi-Fi worked for a few minutes here and there and was incredibly slow when it did work. It was quiet and sparsely populated when we arrived on a Thursday, but Friday night when the locals started coming in the place filled up with everyone's music, barking dogs, and screaming kids and continued as such for the entire weekend. Mary's Lake is just across the highway, but you can't see it from the campground. There is a somewhat periodic, somewhat random whooshing sound you'll hear all night from water gushing into the lake from a pipe. It's very quiet, but just loud enough to get into your head just as you're about to fall asleep. The one good thing is the rangers did a good job of keeping things quiet after-hours. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Travel Trailer.

This county run campground was once privately owned and may have had cable at that time, but does not now. We had good WiFi reception in a site near the antenna. The showers are pay per use. Gravel sites with patios and picnic tables and fire rings. Actually the whole campground is gravel with some trees. Not as sardine packed as many campgrounds in the area. Lots of tenters when we were here. Personnel very friendly and helpful. This campground is very close to the Beaver Meadows entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Handicap accessibility is not the best as the whole campground is tiered on the side of a hill and not all stairways have railings. Reservations are made through Reserve America, which we don't think does a good job and adds fees. We drove in asking for reservations for tomorrow and were told that we would have to call or go online. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

Very nice staff, not much grass, more of a parking lot type, but close to everything. Good Wi-Fi, hookups etc. We have stayed here quite a few times. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

Phenomenal scenery including a lake across the street. Very good WiFi. Clean restrooms. For longer trailers (30ft & up) I recommend using pull-thru site. The back-in sites were short and narrow. Park was very quiet during the week. Park staff was helpful & friendly. Perfect proximity to Estes village and national park entrances. Verizon signal strength good. Small store on site.

We stayed here to see Rocky Mountain National Park and the other sites in Estes Park. The park is entirely gravel and the sites are a little close together, but other than that it was fantastic. Camp Host was great. The views of the surrounding mountains were awesome. Mary's Lake is just across the road and Estes Lake actually has trout that bite. The utilities worked great. Wi-Fi was a little weak but Verizon Jetpack got plenty of bars. Very family oriented park with lots of kids enjoying the camping. Pool is nice and warm. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Larimer County runs several RV campsites. This is one of two near Rocky Mountain National Park. Great thing is the price. I was in my teardrop camper and self contained so used a tent site for $27 for the night. Full hook ups are $37. There are two sets of restrooms and in one of the back sections I saw a porta potty. That is probably the only downside for the camp. The spaces on the perimeter are widely spaced, some have trees and shade. All have picnic table and fire pit. Starting next week you should plan on reservations through the fall. Since one of the NPS camps is closed again this year. There is also a smaller companion park a bit further south.

Despite there being riverside And view sites available , I was put in a back corner. One garbage bin very far from site. Sites are close together and there are a lot of full timers. The staff were very helpful. Probably won't stay here again. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

Wide open park with a view of mountains and surrounding valley. Marys Lake is across street from park and not visible. Free shuttle into town. WiFi was weak and had to take iPad closer to antennas to get a signal. Quiet park with exception of campground host operating power metal finishing tools for hours during early evening. Large sites for any size RV. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice little campground and cheaper than others in Estes Park, although you do have to pay for showers. Great views with the lake across the road, nice little pool and the free shuttle into downtown stops right outside. Estes Park is well worth a visit as well with a lovely riverwalk, bars and shops, very nice. Good Wi-Fi. We stayed 3 nights. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

I would always stay at this campground when I am in Estes Park for 3 reasons. 1) Location is outstanding to get into park and into town and to a store. 2) Fantastic views of the mountains, and 3) One of the cleanest bathrooms you are going to find in campgrounds. There are some negatives but we ignored or mitigated them. The negatives are. a) Very impatient and rude man that helps you to your site. b) Tight sites to get into, and c) Gravel roads that need a bit of work. However we picked a site at the end of row which helped us deal with the tight sites. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

We will try and stay here every time we come to Estes! You absolutely can not beat the price. The park is clean, has a FANTASTIC view, and a pool! It is approximately a 5 minute drive from downtown, but the free Estes Park shuttle stops right in front of the park if you don't want to drive.
