We made reservations early to ensure a spot at Aspenglen Campground the weekend of July 4th. We picked the site via recreation.gov. We had a very nice spot during a busy weekend. This is a nice campground in a NP especially compared to some other NP campgrounds, e.g. Yellowstone. Facilities are clean providing flush toilets and sinks. The grounds are well maintained and the campground has a nice intimate feel to it. We stayed at loop B site 15 which has shade and privacy.
EVen though the grounds are close to Estes Park for shopping, fire wood and ice can be purchased at the campground. Important for those on a motorcycle :)
Deer do visit the campground but I don't think there is a big chance to see any bears.
The campground is located right at the entrance of the park and offers a great way to start exploring.
