Stayed at Spruce Lake in Estes Park...my review is the first one under that park at the link below and you can read about lots of other places there. RockyMtn National Park is spectacular... and the town is great too though QUITE crowded in the Summer.

Or if someone wants to point me in the right direction for an already posted thread.
I am pasting links to some of our favorite spots.
Golden Gate Canyon State Park is nice. Has electrical snf showers too.

We also like Turquoise Lake. Just west of Leadville. However no Hookups. Campsite Map V2 - MOLLY BROWN, CO - Recreation.gov.
We also like Cascade which is near Buena Vista. Again no hook ups but there is a really nice Hot springs near by called Mt. Princeton Hot springs.

For the people who have been to Jellystone at Estes Park, is there really a restriction of of 40' of length? We just purchased our Salem Hemisphere 356QB and FR says this is 42'3" and Jellystone says only up to 40'.....

Thoughts? Suggestions?.....

X4 for elk meadow. We stay there at least twicea season. Plenty of room for longer rigs. We stopped staying at the jellystone for the same reason. Our new rig is 35'.

I would say yes, especially directly behind the office in the older section. It's a steep climb to the top, make the loop and come back down. The NW loop is out of the trees and might fit a longer unit.

^x2. It is a very steep road up the hill with tight turns. Our old 24' tt worked fine. Did see some short 5vers up there but they were few.

X2 on Mary's Lake. We've stayed there many times when it was a private C/G. It fell on hard times and was taken over by the county a some years ago. (It became a local hangout and seemed to have a reputation for noise and drunken yahoos.)

Now the City (Estes Park) owns it and has made much needed improvements. Nice new bathhouses! Not a top-tier C/G but it was very nice last year and we plan to return this coming August.

Advice for any C/G in Estes Park - if you ain't there - close your awning. (Tie-downs might not cut it.) If you don't the winds will do a number on it. Seen a couple torn off the track. (Also seen a number of tents doing the tumbleweed shuffle across the CC.)
