The Estes Park Campgrounds at Mary’s Lake and East Portal Reservoir (formerly known as the Estes Park Campground) will be open for camping starting Saturday, May 15, through October 15. There are still plenty of campsites available for this weekend and next, as well as some for Memorial Day weekend.

The Estes Park campgrounds provide over 200 campsites with amenities ranging from basic tent sites to full RV hookups including water, electric, and sewer. These campgrounds offer convenient access to the various recreation opportunities in and around the Estes Park area. Both campgrounds also boast spectacular views of surrounding peaks.
The campground at Mary’s Lake sits on approximately 50 acres of land and offers over 140 campsites, two bath houses, and a small swimming pool. Easy access to Estes Park makes this a prime camping location. It is also adjacent to a stocked lake with numerous fishing opportunities.
The East Portal campground is situated on a 75-acre site bordering Rocky Mountain National Park. This quiet setting offers over 60 campsites tucked into the trees, and the perfect “jumping off point” for a family to begin exploring all the recreational opportunities in and around the National Park.
