Campground of the Month: Moraine Park
Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
Why is it a Slumberjack Favorite? Assistant Park Superintendent Sheridan Steel says this is "one of my favorites because of the character of the terrain the campground is in." Meadows are interspersed with big rock outcrops, providing some screening between campsites. In some cases, there is total seclusion, yet it's close to the road. It is a car camping site, but there are walk-in sites, as well.
Moraine Park gives the kids a chance to climb around on the rocks. Sometimes, the song of coyote can be heard from the camp. A coyote's song is one of the most distinctive Western sounds and can be oddly elusive. The down side is it's full all summer and reservations are required -- usually as much as eight weeks in advance.
Directions: Located just a few miles inside the park entrance at Estes Park.
