Before looking for some Rocky Mountain National Park cabins, why don’t you try spending the night outdoor by camping and enjoy the beautiful night sky at the site? The park has five established campgrounds, four of which are open to tent or vehicle camping (tent trailers, pickup campers, trailers, and motorhomes) and one that can only be used by tent campers.

Aspenglen Campground is located near the Fall River Entrance, offering equal amounts of sun and shade. Grasses, shrubs, and seasonal wildflowers fill the open meadows.

Aspenglen comprises several drive-to family sites for tents and RVs. A few sites are more secluded, walk-to tent sites. You can also find a similar ambiance and comforts in the Glacier Basin Campground.

Located about 20 minutes south of Estes Park on Hwy 7, Longs Peak Campground is a small, tents-only campground forested and at a fairly high elevation of 9500 feet (3000 m). Or, take a look at Moraine Park Campground located near the Beaver Meadows Entrance on Highway 36, at an elevation of 8,160 feet. It is situated on the north side of Moraine Park, offering beautiful views of the vast park and the surrounding mountains.

Another campground is Timber Creek Campground, the only campground on the west side of the park. It’s located at 8900 feet (3000 m) along the Colorado River about eight miles north of the Grand Lake entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Note that there’s no shade at campsites.
