We are trying to plan a trip to Colorado from Michigan. Last year we went to Yellowstone and GTNP but we didn’t have the PUP last year so we stayed in hotels and Airbnb’s. I’m looking forward to being a little more connected with the ground and camp this time. We originally bought a PUP when my oldest daughter (now 15) was born but sold it about 7 years ago and tent camped since then. We just bought a used PUP a few months ago and it has been winterized. We’ll need some shakedown camps in the spring to work out any issues. But, we need to plan for summer already so we can secure some spots. We’d be going the 2nd and 3rd week of June. I’m figuring 2 days to get from Michigan to Denver area. Those would be long days, maybe too long since it is about 1200 miles. That is easily doable without a PUP as we did 1600+ miles in 2 days last year but i’m thinking the pup will slow me down some. We will go to Rocky Mountain national park for at least a few days but I’m concerned it may be too busy. But, maybe we are early enough to not be too crazy? Any suggestions on where to stay in Estes park? Or do we try to book a site in the park without showers? (Family is not keen on no showers.....) I’d like to find some other areas in Colorado to spend a few days. Maybe a base camp some where? We like to explore and hike. Family of 4 with 15 and 13 year old daughters. Any ideas? Are there some lesser known areas that have lots of options but not all the crowds of RMNP? We encountered crowds in Yellowstone last year at about the same time. It wasn’t terrible but RMNP is smaller so may be more congested. Thanks - Mike Edit - just realized my title says “not RMNP” and i asked about RMNP. I can’t edit title now but I’m looking for advice on both RMNP/Estes Park and other places in Colorado.
