This was our first trip to this campground. We booked one of the last 2 available sites in the CG. It was probably one of the most exposed/least private in the CG and it was still quite acceptable. We were in the first loop of...More

This park has a Krueger rock trail which was perfect for us. Less than 2 hours to reach the top with amazing views. We have never hiked before and this was a challenge but definitely doable and worth the effort. Highly recommend!!

I found Hermit Park in the Estes Park visitors guide. We were wanting to see some wildlife so we made an evening drive though. We went back the next morning for a small 3.5 mile hike. Trails are not well marked and after the rangers...More

Now it's part of the Larimer County system. I have not been in the park since the change, but if they kept the cabins it would be a great place to stay.

Staff was friendly. Campground is cheap but no water and hard to find a good place to put the tent. Mostly rocks, trees, and a slope. We also had a bear come into the campground on September 2nd. We were in H18 and the bear...More

Our group was very unimpressed by this campground. the facilities were super minimal, water was over 1 mile away. 101 different rules and regulations. Some had their merit, others were just plain ridiculous such as no hanging anything from trees - even hammocks. The whole...More

This campsite is amazing!!! Enjoyed three nights with my sister and three kids. Vault bathrooms are very clean and not as smelly as anticipated. I'd suggest the bobcat camp area, sites 20 and above. They are pretty darn secluded. Staff is so very helpful and...More

Camped for 3 nights. Sites are spacious. Some sites are more private than others. Vault toilets are cleaned and restocked daily. Water is available at the entrance to the park which is about 1 mile from the campground. No cell service (Verizon) in the park....More
