Rocky Mountain National Park

Jump to last reply

Considering a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park the first weekend of August. I don't normally camp, but taking two college boys that work for me and we think camping would be fine and they have most everything we need. Probably tent camp, but might take a popup tent trailor. We will drive from Oklahoma, so not sure we want to pull a camper or not. We will be in a Jeep Wrangler. I can reserve beginning next week for the period that we plan to be there. Is there a Best Campground? It looks like my choices are Aspenglen, Glacier Basin, and Moraine Park Campground. Is there a Best site # at any of the particular campgrounds? Any place to pay to take a shower outside the park?

This will be my 29th national park and I took one of the guys with me last year to Capitol Reef and the other hasn't been to any. I normally do fairly hard hikes and everything from raft the GC to rappel off 200ft. waterfalls. They are super fit athletes and we all would like to attempt Long's Peak, but then again we might just want to do some easier hikes. The altitude has me more worried than anything, so not totally for sure we want to attempt it. I have read a lot on it and realize I would need to start at 3ish in the morning and understand all the dangers(but not totally the altitude as I have no real experience with this type of hike). We will be there Fri, Sat, and Sun for a full 3 days. If we do attempt it, it will be on Sunday, so we'll be the best acclimated as possibly can be. We like waterfalls. I assume they will be running at that time of year and if so what are the best trails/falls for that? What should we expect weatherwise?

Any other thoughts would be appreciated.
