We only spent a 1 night layover at Riverview en-route to our 6day stay at Moraine Campground in RMNP. Beautiful campground but if you rely on hookups you're out of luck.

you guys are confusing me... We had full hookups. 30 / 50 amp electric, sewer connection, cable TV, and the best tasting rocky mountain water with plenty of pressure.

Did you ask for a full hookup site?
Were they full and didn't have any, or?
3/4 of the sites have full hookups, even streamside.

We are talking about RMNP...Not Riverside...

There are no electric or sewer hookups in RMNP...

There is a dump station if you have a blue tote...and water is available...(bring a loooong hose)

Now THIS is a camping site

or this

or this

or this

ALL of these are within 25 miles of the "commercial" campgrounds..On the natural creation that is funded by our tax $$$$

I will say, to each his own....Commercial campgrounds have their benefits...(pool, laundrymat) for me, I don't go to the "mountains" to look at RV's, or swim in a pool, I prefer to swim in a crisp mountain lake, or even wash my clothes in that same lake (no soap though) And I don't mind when the elk bugling wake me up in the morning.
This is where we plan to stay. Had enough of the commercial sites and with 100 gallons of water and a 60 gallon grey tank we'll be just fine for 2-3 days. Nothing like a Navy shower (if you've done it you know what I mean).
