Beginning on Tuesday, October 11, Longs Peak Campground in Rocky Mountain National Park will be closed through this winter for hazard tree mitigation. Longs Peak Campground is a tents-only campground and gets very little use during the winter. Over one hundred and fifty beetle killed and infested trees will be removed. This winter, park staff will monitor the campground for fallen trees as a result of winds. Options for reopening the campground will be identified and assessed in the spring and other mitigation will be evaluated.              

Winter camping will still be available at Moraine Park Campground on the east side of the park and Timber Creek Campground on the west side of the park.         

For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please call the park's Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
