Ahh, summer. The time when many families look to get away from their lives and go on vacation. And Estes Park is a fine place to escape to, with our comfortable Estes Park family cabins and a never-ending list of fun activities to do as a family.
Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park is a beautiful place to visit year-round. But be warned that summer is one of its busier times of the year, with parking lots filling up quickly and sometimes lines at entrance stations between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Especially if you’re coming on a weekend! Early morning and late afternoon arrival and hiking times are recommended for those who want to cut down on the crowds they’ll be dealing with. And be sure to double-check the weather forecast before you leave for the park!
Lake Estes Marina
While you’re here, be sure to take your chance to get out onto the waters of Lake Estes. The Lake Estes Marina will be happy to rent you a variety of boats: one- or two-person kayaks, canoes, a stand-up paddle board, paddle boats or a deluxe fishing boat that will seat four, and seven- and ten-passenger pontoon boats. You can also rent bikes, pedal carts, and rods and reels.
The marina is generally open from May to early October, with the marina store opening in March. Typically, boat rentals start the first week of May. Summer hours are every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Go Horseback Riding
Why walk when you can ride like the wind through beautiful mountain scenery? You can spend a couple of hours out on the trails or tackle the Rockies via horseback. There are quite a few ranches in Estes Park you can book a horseback tour with. Reach out to Sombrero Ranches, National Park Gateway Stables, Cowpoke Corner Corralor Estes Park Outfitters for more details about the riding options they offer.
Cool Off with a Dip in the Pool at our Estes Park family cabins
We have the best places to stay near Estes Park! Those who are staying in our cabins will also have access to the Estes Park Resort, which has a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Start the day with a morning swim or cool off after a long day, then clean off in the resort’s shower facilities.
