The River Forks Inn campground is located on the river in the Big Thompson Canyon, about 20 minutes east of Estes Park, at 6,161 ft (1,878 m).
It is right next door to another campground, the Drake Campground, and part of the River Forks Inn. The Inn has a restaurant and live music.
There are 10 tent and RV sites available, but due to the damage caused by the 2013 floods, the RV sites do not currently have hookups. The campground does have a restroom with showers, and pets are allowed. Other amenities include picnic tables, fire pits, and a dump station for RVs.
The campground is a great starting spot for fishermen and climbers wanting to explore the Big Thompson River, or anyone wanting a site right on the river, with beautiful canyon views.
