Rocky Mountain National Park reopens Saturday 10/12 at noon! Thanks to Governor Hickenlooper for his work on reopening the park and to the Colorado State Tourism Office for helping supply the funds for the reopening. There is still time to come see the Fall Foliage and watch and hear the elk bugling.
Highway 119 from Boulder to Nederland is now open. Then follow the Peak to Peak highway up to Estes Park. It is a pretty drive! You can see the work done by CDOT in repairing Highway 119 from the flooding. They have done a terrific job! Next time you see the workers in the big orange trucks, give them a wave and a smile---they deserve it. Work continues on US 34 and 36 to reopen those roads. We are grateful for all the help in repairing and rebuilding our community as we recover from the flood. Come see us!
Imagine yourself on vacation in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, with blissful views of surrounding mountains and the sounds of nature all around you. Where are you located? None other than the beautiful town of Estes Park located by the famous Rocky Mountain National Park. Estes Park may be a very small town with a population of only 5,000 but it has nothing small to offer!
There are endless things to do and see in the Estes valley, from shopping downtown to taking a leisurely drive through the Rocky Mountains; you will never get bored while vacationing here! While staying at the Castle Mountain Lodge, you will find that downtown Estes Park is only a few minutes’ drive away. We also provide a shuttle service that brings you right into the heart of downtown! There are so many shops and restaurants that it takes an entire day to see and browse through all the fun and creative stores and eat at some of the best restaurants in the state.
