More tips for a great visit:

  • Rocky Mountain National Park is open 24 hours a day year-round. You can enter or exit any time.
  • Summer is the busiest time of year.
  • No lodging is available in the park, but there are hundreds of lodging choices in nearby communities.
  • Camping reservations inside the park and lodging reservations in gateway communities are highly recommended.
  • This is a high elevation park. Trail Ridge Road crests over 12,000 feet. Visitors from lower altitudes may feel the effects of thinner air. Take time to acclimate before doing strenuous activities.
  • When you arrive, stop by a park visitor center for up-to-date information on everything from road conditions to hiking trails and ranger-led programs.
