On episode #40 of Campground of the Week, Brett Neilson reviews his base camp for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park–Jellystone Park of Estes. Rocky Mountain National Park is the 3rd most visited national park in the country, but surprisingly enough, people have some difficulty finding a great campground with reasonable access to the park.
Jellystone Park of Estes stands out for its combination of location and amenities. Listen to hear Brett’s review of his family’s first Jellystone Camp Resorts experience. We’ll give you a hint…we think another visit with Yogi might be in their future!
The topography of this region in general and the campground in particular make for some interesting camp sites, so make sure you listen to hear Brett describe the different site options and which ones might be a good fit for your rig.
Brett also gives some recommendations for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, including tips for driving the Trail Ridge Road and hiking at the Bear Lake area. His family also enjoyed their time in Estes Park, recommending:
- Estes Valley Farmers Market
- The Ariel Tram
- The Stanley Hotel
- Poppy’s Pizza and Grill
- The Barrell
Listen to Episode #40 to hear more great details and insider tips for planning your next RV trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.
