Frequently Asked Questions

How do I reserve a campsite?
For summer reservations at Aspenglen, Glacier Basin, and Moraine Park, visit Recreation.gov or call (877) 444-6777. You can reserve up to six months in advance. Longs Peak and Timber Creek are first-come, first-served only, and Moraine Park is first-come, first-served in winter, so reservations aren't available.

How hard is it to get a campsite?
In July and August, campgrounds usually fill every day by early afternoon, and most sites at reservable campgrounds are reserved well in advance. In June and September, campgrounds tend to fill on weekends.

How many nights can I camp?
From June 1 through September 30, you can stay seven nights total parkwide. For example, if you stayed three nights at a campground on one trip and four nights at another campground on another, you wouldn't be able to stay any more nights that summer season. You can also stay an additional 14 nights between September 30 and June 1.

Can I buy firewood at the campground?
