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

Just about 5miles east of Estes Park on Hwy 36 is Hermit Park. Day use fee is $6 for 24hrs (so you could always go back next day). Dog allowed on trails ON LEASH. We hiked up the 2mi (one way) trail to Krueger Rocks...More

Lots of beautiful photos. I'm happy we were able to stop and take some nice photos and really look at the view. Worth it!

We have stayed here a couple of times and really like this area. Remote enough to enjoy being way from it all but close enough to Estes Park and other mountain activities that it is a short drive. Beautiful area and a great hiking trail...More

We spent 3 nights in Hermit's Hollow Campground at a site that required some walking to get back to the location. We don't care to camp right on the road. (Site H32). The location was just beautiful, overlooking many trees, with a high ridge just...More

Looks like cabins, campgrounds, hikes available, close to entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. Watch for extra special events! We got to see wolves and wolf-dogs through an educational visit of Wolfwood Refuge - FANTASTIC!!

Only pit toilets. They keep them fairly clean. No showers. There are nice showers in Estes Park at Dad's Laundry (by Safeway). I think we paid $4 there
