Colorado – Rocky Mountain National Park‘s largest and most popular campground will be closed for the entire summer, extending into the fall. This closure is due to construction delays, according to park officials. Crews are engaged in extensive renovations, including the replacement of outdated water lines and sewer systems, the improvement of drainage systems, and the relocation and restoration of wetlands. Additionally, they are working to bury power lines to reduce the risk of wildfires.

These improvements aim to enhance accessibility for visitors and ensure that the campground can be used year-round, providing a safer and more enjoyable experience. Rocky Mountain National Park, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife, and over 355 miles of hiking trails, attracts millions of visitors annually. The park’s commitment to these upgrades underscores its dedication to preserving the natural beauty and safety of the area while accommodating the needs of modern-day visitors. Although the temporary closure may inconvenience some, the long-term benefits are expected to be substantial.
