County adds two campgrounds

Loveland – The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources is pleased to announce an expansion in our role with the Estes Valley Recreation District. This partnership now includes the management of the Estes Park Campgrounds at Mary’s Lake and East Portal Reservoir (formerly known as the Estes Park Campground). We are excited to incorporate these campgrounds into our already expansive campground inventory and are looking forward to the new recreational opportunities they will offer the visiting public. 

These two campgrounds will provide over 200 campsites with amenities ranging from basic tent sites to full RV hookups including water, electric, and sewer. We anticipate reservations for campsites will be available through our system by mid March of this year. 

The Estes Park Campgrounds offer convenient access to the various recreation opportunities in and around the Estes Park area. 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.
