    This is one of my favorite places to camp. It's a touch expensive, and a touch too family friendly for my taste, but it's right up against the mountains, and the views cannot be beat. This is a must see if you are in the area.

    This is a fantastic campground. Some campsites have very nice views of the meadow where there is usually a herd of elk. There's an amphitheatre in the campground too. You can join in park ranger led campfire programs held there during the summer. Cub Lake trail is within walking distance and is well worth the effort.

    This park epitomizes what American camping is all about.

    There may not be a more scenic campground in the United States.

    Nestled along an ancient moraine and beneath the splendor of Longs Peak, Moraine Park is a beauty to behold.

    There are no electricity or water hookups , but it does nothing to spoil the experience as the weather is generally very mild and the surroundings trump any desire for creature comforts.

    And for a family trip it's hard to beat with Estes Park just minutes away, offering endless options with a nature/downtown mix that's hard to find anywhere.

    If you live within a 10 hour drive, and consider yourself an avid camper, it should nearly be considered criminal if you haven't stayed at Moraine Park. Put it on your soon to do list, and make your reservations as early as possible.

    Shoot for sites 245, 247, 231, and any along the Moraine and you can't go wrong...

    This is a beautiful campground. The site I stayed at had the most amazing view. There is a building with plumbing but it's only open Memorial Day to Labor Day. The rest of the year you have to use the vault toilets. There is an outside sink that they leave on for drinking, hand washing, or dish washing. One of the neatest things about this campground is that there were so many deer just roaming around at all times of day. I imagine it gets packed during summer so reservations will probably be necessary.
