Rocky Mountain National Park offers spectacular mountain scenery and outdoor activities like hiking, wildlife viewing, camping, and climbing.
Spring and fall have moderate weather and smaller crowds. Summer brings crowds but all amenities are open.
Frontcountry and backcountry camping is available. Make reservations months in advance for popular spots.
Expect more crowds in late morning and early afternoon. Arrive early or late for less congestion.
Options include cafeterias, restaurants, grills, food stands, and general stores spread around the park.
Estes Park, Grand Lake, and surrounding mountain towns offer more amenities just outside the park.
