Rocky Mountain National Park campground

Recently my family and I went to the Rocky Mountain National Park for the 4th of July. As you can imagine it was extremely busy. Lucky for us we had some friends who visited the Rocky Mountain National Park pretty regular and they mentioned to us that if we wanted to get in before the rest of the crowd, we must go in before 7 a.m. in the morning.

So for 4th of July weekend we entered into the Rocky Mountain National Park always before 7 a.m. It was a good thing for us because there was already at least 10 cars in line before we could enter into the park. The rest of the day we noticed that the cars were backed up all the way to Estes Park up until about 5 p.m. in the afternoon and in fact I think they even started turning cars back because there were too many in the park. So my advice anytime you go to the Rocky Mountain National Park when is busy arrive first thing in the morning before everybody else.

What we did while we were there as we hiked to a couple of the lakes that were relatively easy I think they were only two miles the trail is only about 2 miles long. I don’t recall the name of the lake but I will have to find it and add it to this because it was an incredible sight we saw not only the lake but we also saw some waterfalls that we’re nearby. Here is a picture of at least one of the sites that we visited.

This was a summit which I believe was over 12,000 ft and a very popular destination Because You Can See For Miles in every direction.
