We stayed at Glacier Basin Campground (CG) in the Rocky Mt. Nat'l, . Park, CO for 4 days, Glacier Basin-Loop A, #24. The CG was really lush with tall Pine trees and all the campsites were very roomy and nicely spaced apart. We did not feel like we were on top of other campers. The CG has flush-toilets and sinks with (cold) water sinks to use at each camping loop. They were clean also. No showers available at this Nat'l. Park but you can find pay-showers in the town of Estes Park, CO which is less than 10 mins. outside the park. Bear boxes are provided to store your food in if you do not have a camper and tent camping. No hook-ups are available inside the Park, however there is (drinkable) water faucets you can use to fill up your containers and dish washing-centers are at various locations around all the 'loops' in the CG. Fire rings with grilling grates are at each campsite, as well as a large picnic table. We camped with 2 of our friends and had a great time. Even though this is the first time we have camped here...we will ost certainly return! Our campsite was in Loop A, site #24. See photos below of our site with our PUP and Explorer

We stayed at Glacier Basin, appears to be nicest campground there. We had a great view of the mountains from our site. However with that site across from the field came some good wind. We adjusted not really a big deal. No electric anywhere, but we knew that coming in. Only cold water in bathrooms, no showers, etc. However we knew that going in as well, and just showered in our camper. Was a nice place to stay and walked the dogs around with every night. Wow, the wildlife that comes into the campground is great to watch. Bear warnings up, but don't fret, doesn't seem to be a problem there, just follow the rules. Would I stay at this campground again. Yes I would, and it is very close to some great hiking. Also the vendor that comes in to sell ice and ice cream and wood was nice to have there in the evenings. Reasonable pricing on those items as well.

If you don't mind dry camping this campground has plenty of beautiful vistas. Reservations definitely recommended. Deer and coyote frequented the campground during our stay. Lots to see in RMNP.

Stayed in Glacier Basin campground. Pros: What a great location - rustic, beautiful, snow-capped mountains. We dry camped for four nights and got to meet some great people. The drive up the Fall Road to the Alpine Visitors Centre was really neat -- one way up, gravel the whole way with some fun switchbacks. At the Alpine Centre we walked up to over 12000ft. We took the Trail Ridge Road around the Grand Lake and back. That mountain side driving, although the road is busy, is not for the weak of heart! Cons: The road up to Estes Park was narrow, very twisty and steep. For the first time the truck actually dropped down into 1st gear -- twice! Part of the challenge was knowing how much speed you could carry out of a corner because your view ahead was often blocked by canyon walls. Looking at the GPS sure helped!
