Jellystone Estes Park, CO

Has any one here been to Jellystone Estes Park, CO? My family of 5 and another family of 6 are headed there in August for a week. Looking for any additional feedback from forum members. I tried to search but did not find threads already talking about this. If I missed it, I appologize for the duplication. Or if someone wants to point me in the right direction for an already posted thread.

I've stayed here many times long before it was a Jellystone. First time was around 1986 and it has been owned by the same family since before that. The kids have it now and they are excellent hosts. You'll see them everyday, all day working in the campground. Click image for larger version

Looking for some additional ideas for campgrounds in Colorado for families with children? We were going to Jellystone at Estes Park, but now with our soon to be picked up new 356QB, they are telling us that we are too long! The Forest River site says we are 42'3". Jellystone says they can only accommodate max 40'. Any ideas? Other threads I should check out? We have 2 families, 4 adults & 7 children oldest being 10 and youngest is 5. Thanks for the help! We pick up or camper Saturday!

We stayed at ELK Meadows Lodge and RV park, sties are gravel and roads are gravel. But you can fit a long trailer in this park plus they have pull thru full hook-up sites. Which I tend to like. This way the DW is happy because she does not have to worry about filling up the holding tanks when she takes a shower.


They do have a heated swimming pool and playground for kids. Here is a link to their website.

We stayed there for a week two years ago. Nice park, nice people. We enjoyed it.

I've heard JellyStone Park in Larkspur is a great place to stay.

We also stay at Elk Meadows with our Charleston (which is slightly less than 44') and our Jeep Commander. We have never had an issue with space. We have also stayed at Spruce Lake which is also in between town and the NP. Spruce Lake seems more congested with tighter spaces. However, they have a fishing lake that is attractive for some.

We stayed at a private campground as you drive out of Loveland. I think it was Riverbend Campground. It was very nice. Right on the Big Thompson river and some sites had decks along the river with chairs and tables. Did not want to pull the TT up to Estes.

We stayed at Mary's Lake at Estes. Nice campground area and less costly also.
