Like most RV’ers I prefer open ended camping destinations. However, during busy periods I know that I might end up out of luck so I compromise and make advance reservations when I’m headed for a popular spot or going to be out over a holiday weekend.
This is the case with our time in Estes Park, CO – the busiest time (July 4 weekend) in a very popular area. This year the county has purchased an older RV park, Marys Lake at Estes Park, turning it into a county park. As a commercial park, this one got poor reviews, however, the county has taken it over and it’s now a work in progress.
