Timber Creek Campground is closed until further notice due to COVID-19.

NPS does not state exactly why, but we are seeing a trend of this in some parks due to staffing issues related to COVID-19. The below link has detailed information about the status of the campgrounds within Rocky Mountain National Park.

Find more information on the campground statuses here. We will update this as soon as we know more or the campgrounds actually open.

Timber Creek Campground Overview

Timber Creek Campground is the only campground on the west side of the park. Located at 8900 feet (3000 m) along the Colorado River about eight miles north of the Grand Lake entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. A mountain pine beetle infestation caused most of the trees to be removed, so there is no shade at campsites.
Directions to Campground

From Grand Lake, head north on US Hwy 34 / Trail Ridge Road. After 8 miles, follow signs on your left to Timber Creek Campground.
