Description

Are you ready for high-elevation camping? Because Longs Peak Campground is way, way up there at 9,405 feet! If you come here to camp, you’re probably also coming to climb the majestic Longs Peak, which is about as awe-inspiring as it gets. Bring warm clothes, because at this elevation it’s never too warm and the weather can change fast. Have fun and good luck!

This is a great campground for splitting the climb up Longs Peak into two days. There's also so much to explore in this area that it makes a great base camp. Nearby is Mount Meeker which is just under 14,000 feet and more challenging (and less populated) than the Longs Peak climb. You can also hike to Chasm Lake or Peacock Pool below Longs Peak or explore the Estes Cone Trail.
