We wanted to stay near Estes Park, but still be in the mountains, and this park fits that description. There are lots of families, but they quiet down after sunset. Steep roads in the park, but it was good exercise to walk around. Spot 68 is great because you are tucked back next to a nice grassy area. The staff is super, and they work hard with a constant smile. It's not cheap, but nothing is cheap in this area. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you spend at least 2 days in Rocky Mountain National Park. The 254 mile circle drive takes a full day, but it is worth it!

This is our second visit to Jellystone Estes and I would highly reccomend it above any the other campgrounds in Estes! First off, for being on the entrance to RMNP (one of the most visited NPs in the country) Estes does not offer much in the way of modern campgrounds. We have stayed at nearly all the campgrounds in the area and Jellystone is the best pick of the bunch. The park is pretty, well kept and offers things to do besides park and sleep. It sits on a terraced, wooded hillside just outside Estes Park. There is a wide variety of sites to choose from and you can find a space for any type of rig. Not all spaces will fit all rigs! The smaller terraced sites farthest up are very, very scenic, but are for only pop ups! There are large sites closer to the entrance that will fit anything. All sites have a table and fire pit. Their "premium" sites are a bit bigger with patio mat, split-rail fence and an additional table/chairs on some sites. We were in full hookup site #65 with out 30 ft trailer with a large slideout. It looked a bit small, but the escort got us in on one try. Somewhat unlevel,but fixable. Once set-up, the site was great! The sites may not be as roomy as some state parks, but they are way nicer than anything else in Estes. The park fills up quickly, so advance reservations are a must! Hookups worked good with decent water pressure and a strong wi-fi signal. (Poor AT&T phone signal due to location probably. Not an issue.) Staff was very friendly! The heated pool was nice and there is a game room with pool table and arcade games. They remodeled their put-put golf course! fun! The park IS geared towards those with smaller children and their activities are age-appropriate. Although there were many children running about, it was not overly noisy and the nights were very quiet. Some reviews noted that the park os "far" from town. Nonsense. you are 6 minutes away from downtown Estes. It takes you longer to get into town having to go through traffic when staying at Elk Meadow Campground! A note on traffic: Estes is VERY crowded on the weekends and in-town parking is at a premium. Have patience. I mentioned some of the other campgrounds in Estes. Elk Meadow is close to RMNP entrance, but is an eyesore. That place is really going down hill. Estes KOA is nice, but is very, very small. You are literally on top of eachother. For the choices in Estes, Jellystone is your best bet! We will be back! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground for families with children. Tons of activities, including candy bar bingo, a dance party with Yogi, wagon rides, and a nice playground with pool. We didn't have small children with us so didn't use those amenities. Our friends did however and really liked them. The park was clean, including restrooms and grounds. It had great Wi-Fi, a nice cooked breakfast ($3) and nice staff. My only complaint would be the campground roads are rough, the park could do with a little maintenance, and some sites are quite small, not giving much privacy. We had a small site (68). Many of the sites are a decent size however. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Travel Trailer.

Very friendly staff, both at check-in and after. We had picked our site earlier therefore it was easy in and out and good satellite access. Site was adequate and not too close to neighbor. Good Wi-Fi. No AT&T. Close enough to Estes Park (4.5 miles) to be convenient. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America discount.

Very nice large campground with paved roads and gravel sites with small grass areas and table. Sites with and without trees. Roads are rough, narrow and steep. All back-in sites, the big rig sites are long and wide although very unlevel. Separate tent area and rental cabins. Game room, club house, pool, mini golf, kids play areas, events and entertainment for kids. Lots of kids during the summer and holidays. Free password protected and strong Wi-Fi. There is no Verizon cell or 4G signal in the park. Satellite TV signal in some sites, local TV on antenna in some other sites and no cable TV. Staff friendly and helpful and accepts pets and scheduled activities on weekends. Campground geared for families on weekends, OK for full timers. Closes for season Oct 1. Five miles outside of Estes Park. Would stay there again. Cost listed is for Passport. Does not accept C 2 C, RPI or ROD. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff makes up for any negatives this park has. Staff is warm, welcoming, friendly and hardworking. Very family friendly park that has hayrides, pancake/French toast breakfasts on Sat/Sun for $5, movies, ceramics, scavenger hunts, heated swimming pool, arcade, mini-golf, horseshoes, swimming pool available. Lots of kids and pets but most very well behaved. Sites are terraced and close together. Gravel and somewhat level. Each had tree, fire pit and picnic bench. No cable available but strong Wi-Fi. Restrooms were clean. Trails and streams run through park as well as ravine with flowers/bushes so feels like you are in the mountains. About 3 miles to town. Check in sells t-shirts, groceries, firewood, basic necessities and had DVDs. Negatives were no concrete pads, people walking through campsite (not parks fault!), and small sites pretty close together. We saw and drove through several other RV parks and I would recommend Jellystone over them. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Motorhome.

Far from Estes Park and getting in and out very difficult. Crowded, tight spaces. Park appears not very well kept. Tried to put us in a back in site that had a steep drop off on the side with little room to spare. Demanded refund, which they gave reluctantly after a short argument and I went somewhere else. Definitely would not recommend. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Motorhome.

There isn't much to choose from in Estes, However this is the most mountain feeling campground in the area that can accommodate most rigs. The campground has wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, as well as many trees to add to the mountain feel. The roads are steep with gravel sites mostly terraced. There are lots of activities to keep the kids busy. There are only a few sites that would accommodate larger rigs. It's in close proximity to Estes without being in town. The staff was nice and helpful with any needs. The pool was adequate, but not resort quality, nice playgrounds, arcade and horseshoe pit. This could be a very nice campground with a little more attention to landscape and clean up as it was very overgrown. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Motorhome.

We love camping here every August! We've been coming for the last 8 years. The kids have a great time here. We usually meet friends here and enjoy it every year. I use a pop-up camper here now, but have tent camped in the past and rented one of their cabins two years ago. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We will return!!!

We stayed in Boo Boo #2 Travel Trailer rental unit for two nights while we were visiting the Rocky Mountain NP and Estes Park area. We love Yogi Bear Campgrounds and we're from the east coast so we had to stay at one while we were visiting the area. The park was nice with lots of chipmunks and rabbits running all over the park. The staff were super nice and very helpful when trying to find restaurants in Estes Park. I will stay here the next time I come back to Estes Park area!

Clean park with many things to keep you busy. Great for the kids: large playground, horseshoe pit, game room, etc. Clean bathrooms and pool. Staff very friendly and campsite just outside of Estes Park. Stayed here twice this summer and will go back next year. Cabins are available if you don't have an RV. Liked this place due to cleanliness and close proximity to Denver (easy drive). We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Travel Trailer.

Very cool campground for kids. Beware of altitude sickness. The campground is built on a foothill, which makes for fun trails and walks. Great playgrounds. Kids were invited to help Yogi with the flag lowering and folding ceremony. If I remember correctly, cell phone reception was minimal. Great drive there and continuing on the next day, but you can't be afraid of mountainous roads. We would stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Motorhome.

Love how peaceful this campground is, up in the mountains. However, I wish they had the golf carts you could rent to get up and down those hills, like the one in Larkspur (Castle Rock) does. This used to be our favorite campground, but the last 2 years we've come here has been people drinking, fighting and yelling (Father's Day weekends), which ruined our family camping trip. Just seems to be getting a little ghetto. Still a beautiful place to camp with fun family activities. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Tent.

Over Priced!!!! 50 amp sites were all taken by permanent residents. Our site was down front, long enough but dirt/mud. If you don't have children this is not the place for you. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Motorhome.

I would say that the best thing about this site was that it was fun for our daughter. Lots of events geared for kids. However, between the road noise, dirty bathrooms and high fees, I would never go back to this site. There are much better ones in the area. If you choose to stay here, best bet is to get a site higher up on the mountain. If you get a site by the main road, the road noise will keep you up all night as it doesn't stop. Sites were gravel and not very level. It's too bad because this place could have a lot of potential. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Estes in a Travel Trailer.
