Overview

Overview

Aspenglen Campground is located near the Fall River Entrance in Colorado's awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain National Park.

From lush valleys to craggy peaks stretching over 14,000 feet, visitors are provided opportunities for countless breathtaking experiences and adventures.

Scenic driving, hiking, backpacking, fishing, horseback riding and wildlife viewing are popular activities in the park.

Natural Features:

A pleasant mix of Douglas fir, Lodgepole pine, Ponderosa pine and the occasional Engelmann spruce, forests the campground, offering equal amounts of sun and shade. Grasses, shrubs and seasonal wildflowers fill the open meadows.

Wildlife is plentiful in the park: mule deer and the majestic Rocky Mountain elk are the most commonly spotted, although black bear, coyote, bighorn sheep and moose inhabit the region as well.

Recreation:

Rocky Mountain National Park has 355 miles of hiking trails that range from flat lakeside strolls to steep mountain climbs. Visitors enjoy the park's various lake trails (Bear Lake, Cub Lake, Mills Lake), waterfall trails (Adams Falls, Alberta Falls, Ouzel Falls) and summit trails (Deer Mountain, Twin Sisters Peaks, Flattop Mountain).

The park offers some unforgettable scenic driving routes as well, including Trail Ridge Road and Old Fall River Road. Trail Ridge Road reaches 12,183' above sea level and is America's highest continuous highway. It climbs above the park's evergreen forests to its windswept alpine tundra, where visitors enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.

Driving along the historic Old Fall River Road is like motoring through an earlier era. Constructed in 1920, this steep, one-way, uphill, gravel road punctuated by switchbacks, quietly leads travelers from Horseshoe Park through the park's wilderness to Fall River Pass, 11,796' above sea level.

Several visitor centers are within the park, offering ranger-led activities, education and history about the park and seasonal nighttime programs.

Facilities:

Aspenglen contains several drive-to family sites for tents and RVs. A few sites are more secluded, walk-to tent sites.

Each campsite is equipped with a picnic table, fire ring with grate and tent pad. Roads and parking spurs are paved. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Estes Park lies just outside the park's main west entrances, and is a short drive from Aspenglen Campground. Dining, shopping, rafting, fly fishing, horseback riding, and golfing opportunities await. Lake Estes offers boating, sailboarding and fishing.
