Explore the majestic Rockies in your home on wheels with these 5 tips to help you choose where to camp, how to prepare and what to do with your pets.

1. Do You Need Hookups?

If you’re hoping to find electric, water or sewer hookups, you won’t find them camping in the park. While four of the park’s five campgrounds allow RVs, none of them have hookups. If you’re looking for power, water and sewer, check out these RV parks in gateway towns near the entrances:

On the east side of the park, Estes Park is located 3.5 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park’s eastern entrance, Beaver Meadows. Paradise on the River, located just one mile from downtown Estes, offers full hookups, free wifi and cable and shower and laundry facilities.
