Camping in the mountains near Ft. Collins, CO

Any recommendations for a campground in the mountains near Ft. Collins CO? We prefer something quiet, mountain views, trees, and water (electricity would be a plus). Another bonus would be a lake/river, but not a must. We don't want much, huh?

Appreciate y'alls input.

We have stayed at horsetooth reservoir. They have spots with water,electric and sewer. The last time we stayed the water was low and it was of no benefit to stay down by the lake. If I went again i would stay up on the higher loops that had full hookups. We were about 20 min away from downtown foco. Loved foco!

We might check that out, but we are looking for a place more in the mountains. It looks like there is some campgrounds in a national park nearby, but don't know anything about the facilities.

Keep 'em comin'! :thumbup:

Not sure how much experience you have... but if you go up in the mountains from Ft. Collins (which is just a tick under a mile above sea level) you start climbing quite a bit. Not hard to get to 7500-8500', and a lot of people find they don't sleep well at first at altitude.

So you may want to base yourself at the lowest level possible and drive up into the mountains -- there's definitely a lot to see!

Not sure how far from Ft Collins you are look to be, but there are four or five locations along the Poudre river west and the prime spot would be at chamber's

Thanks for the advice , Steve. We have been to higher altitude many times and unfortunately I do have problems with alt sickness, but it subsides after a couple of days.

I would assume that the roads to and through Estes are all repaired from the floods last year. :what:

Horsetooth Res. is beautiful this year, full of water. And the mountains surround the lake. Best spots are north of inlet bay. Spot I-51 or I-52 is the best spots.
