Summertime is right around the corner, and that means camping season is hard upon us! So take a look at these ten family-friendly camping spots, located right here in our beautiful state.
Moraine Park, Rocky Mountain National Park
If you’re looking for a camping site that feels far away from civilization and has vast stretching meadows, then this is the place for you. There are great camping-grounds all around Rocky Mountain National Park due to it’s close proximity to Estes Park, so be sure to get reservations early!
2. Turquoise Lake
This breath-taking recreation area is near Leadville in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. There are about 8 campgrounds, and over 300 fire rings, bathrooms, drinking water, and picnic tables. It’s a great place to bring the whole family. It has activities for all people from hikers, to fishers, and boaters alike! Be sure to put this one on the top of your list!
3. Mountain Park
If you’re looking for something a little closer to civilization, then this is the park for you! It is located only 40 miles outside of Fort Collins, Colorado in Poudre Canyon. The Poudre River blocks out most of the road noise and since it is at a lower elevation, the night-time temperatures are more bearable for younger campers. This park is best when visited in May through late September to avoid snow!
4. Kenosha Pass Campground
A close option for people near Denver, this gorgeous park is just 50 miles southwest of Denver near Fairplay. While attending this park you can hike The Colorado Trail, which is a trail that stretches 500 miles through 8 mountain ranges and ending in Durango Colorado. This family-friendly park offers an interpretive area that has wheel-chair and stroller access. After visiting in the summer, come back in late September to see it when the aspens are in full swing!
5. Red Feather Lakes
Would you like to fall in love with a rustic mountain village, surrounded by the 612,000-acre Roosevelt National Forest? If so, then visit Red Feather Lakes just northwest of Fort Collins! This area has the best rafting and kayaking and fishing around. It is another great place to take the whole family for summer-time fun!
