Trailer sites are small. We had a 40 ft site which our 32 ft fifth wheel barely fit. Our site was a pull along which meant our slideouts were at the edge of the road. Weird generator hours. For us just too many folks to close together. We could not use our fire ring as it was downhill and our chairs wouldn't stay up. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The park services were all closed, water, dump, entrance, however self service registration worked just fine. Crowds are gone this time of year, it's a little windy, so we selected a site that did not look over the moraine. The sites that do look over the moraine are beautiful, however can be very, very windy. Elk were bugling in the moraine during the day, and we relaxed overlooking the moraine at a friends site. The sites were all still kept clean, but only about 2/3 of the campsites were available. One loop was closed. No reservations were needed. Our daily rate is senior discount rate @ 50%. We used our solar panel for charging during the day, so we selected a site that was in the sun, plenty of shaded locations were available at this time of year as well. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Estes Park isn't quite as busy this time of year, but there can be some very warm days to visit the shops that remain open at the end of the season. Don't pass up visiting the Estes Park Library. Parking is better as well at the library. WIFI is available at the Library as it is at the local Safeway Grocery store.

Gorgeous views everywhere, adequate space for each site, well-kept, no hookups but water and dump site available, rangers are outstanding. Did I say gorgeous surroundings? Well run, well organized. A pleasure to stay there. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Thus is a very popular and crowded campgrpund. We were on d loop which was more aecluded. Some of the sites were literally right on the road. They book up on advance but we were able to get a site with one day in advance on the website. Didn't have to bother with trying for a first come site. Not noisy at night. Bear boxes inconveniently place sporadically so we ended up keeping everything in the car and hauling it when we wanted to use it which was a big hassle. Should have more boxes available. Long drive to bear lake trailhead. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount. This campground may be the most convenient for all activities on the east side of the park. It is a very large campground with little separation between the sites and not a lot of vegetation for privacy. However, many of the sites have spectacular views of the surrounding meadows and peaks. Loops A, C, and D are reservable during the high season. Loop B is always first-come, first-served. (At least as of this writing. These things change.) Generator use is not allowed in Loop D. Overall, generator hours are fairly limited, but enough to charge batteries. The interior roads and pads are gravel and it can be a bit dusty. We were there during prime pine pollen season, so almost everything was yellow from the pollen. There is only one dump station for the campground and it is also the primary fresh water fill station, so it can get quite crowded. The campground is nicely quiet and dark at night. In our site we were able to get satellite. We did not have reliable Verizon phone or data, only enough to send a text message or two. The campground is convenient to shopping and dining in Estes Park. There are trails that can be easily accessed from the campground. We were in Loop C and could easily get to great hiking trails to Cob Lake and Fern Falls and Lake. This campgrounds main "competitor" is Glacier, only a few miles away. We stayed at both and each has its advantages. Moraine seems more orderly and organized. Glacier seems a little less organized and a little more remote, despite the fact that is only about 5 miles from Moraine. We would stay at either campground again. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

If you stay here, it is for the scenery and wildlife experiences; because it is dry camping. The big improvement over our stay 2 years ago is that we had decent Verizon cell & data. The sites are generous, although some are not too level. The restrooms are clean; however, no showers are available. Were were here in mid-Sept. and the elk were bugling every evening in the meadow. The only negative that comes to mind is the single dump station just before the CG exit. It can get crowded and there is no staging area; just park on the road and wait. You can fill up with water there; but I chose to bring mind in and avoid a conflict there at the dump. We would definitely stay here again in our 40 ft.

This is a great campground for visiting the east side of the park. Elk and deer came through at dusk and dawn most days. We got a walk-in site (Glacier Basin Campground was closed so they made Moraine loop B walk-in this year) and had a long level site. I knocked off 2 points for lack of any hook-ups, but truthfully it was worth dry camping for 4 days for the location of this campground.

Stayed 1 night in Moraine campground. Nice back in site in B loop. Always love to stay in the park to catch the evening ranger talks. There are very few services in the park, and B loop only has pit toilets. Can catch the shuttle to other parts of the park as well. Firewood and ice available for sale. We would stay here again.

We stayed in Moraine campground one night and Glacier Basin Campground 3 nights. Moraine is all reservations, but we got a site that had a cancellation. The shade trees here were good. Glacier is half reservation sites, which had very little shade as many trees were removed due to pine beetle infestation. We stayed in a first-come, first-serve site which was nicely shaded in Loop A. Elk wandered around in the campground. Hosts were friendly and on top of things. We plan to return. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights in the Moraine Park Campground. Very convenient location. We visited at end of September and the elk rut in Moraine Park was within walking distance. Driving to Bear Lake and other attractions was a breeze. No hookups but the water supply and sewage dumps at the entrance worked well. Our site A140 was close to a clean restroom (no showers). Sites were reasonably spaced and we enjoyed our stay at this campground. Will return. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Moraine Park campground for four nights, and really enjoyed our stay. The elk were in rut and it was a very short drive to get to a spot for close-up photography (although there were often some inconsiderate people who blocked the roadway at times). We stayed in C loop, space 239, and the only problem was that the space was a pull-through with barely enough room for our travel trailer and pickup truck, which protruded into the roadway a foot or so. The reservation site had addressed the length of the travel trailer, so we thought we were OK, but it was a tight squeeze. But staying on the outside of this loop gave us a hillside location and we were able to watch and listen to some of the elk from the hillside, which really added to the overall wonderful experience. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Moraine Campground for 5 nights in space 59. Was a large site with plenty of shade. Has lots of room between you and your neighbors. Dumping and filling up fresh water was a breeze by the entrance to the campground. Very beautiful views. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We tent camped at Moraine, it is the perfect place to tent camp as well as in an RV. We saw lots of different sizes of campers fit into the sites. Looks like loop C was best suited for the bigger rigs. Loop D is tent and small pop-up with no generators. As noted previously, the Pine beatle has killed a lot of trees but new growth is coming fast. The scenery is just beautiful and well worth the effort to get here. This is camping as it should be with lots of hiking trails and raw nature. Will be back as soon as possible. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

This is our second year staying at Moraine Park campground, and we love it. No amenities, but the nice large sites and a real camping experience is a wonderful change from the typical RV park. We arrived the day after Labor Day with no reservation and were given site B224, a 40-foot back-in site. We were close to the entrance: made it easy to leave and go watch the elk down in the meadow, which was our main reason for staying in the park. We also had mule deer right across from our campsite. We would stay here again and plan to do so next year! We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the Moraine Park Campground. Nice wide level spaces with good views of the mountains. Easy to get around on park shuttles. Elk wander right through campground. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
