If entering RMNP from the East, this is a wonderful campground. It's at the base of the mountains so it's much more temperate (avoid freezing nights in the Summer). It's a stone's throw from the entrance to the park, but set back a good quarter mile so you're removed from all the park traffic. Our site was nice, though our neighbors were loud way past quiet time and I did not see a ranger to request them to quiet down.
Has drinking water and bathrooms. No showers. There is also a nightly ranger talk at 8:30pm.
