We have a large rig (4 horse trailer w/17ft short wall). They said we would have no problem getting it in. We barely got it in and really struggled to get it out. No hook ups in these sites. Not even water for the horses. Closest water is at the next campground. Had to chose between taking a shower or saving the water in our tank for the horses. The place is beautiful and trails are nice just not a good choice to camp with horses.

We stayed here for camping. It's near the National Park, which makes it a great location. The bathroom facilities are well maintained. The view from our campsite wasn't that great, but it was quite. There is a $9-10 per vehicle access fee besides the campsite fee. The water facilities are by where you check in, and not close to the campsite. Be sure to bring containers for your water.

We visited Hermitt Park recently when Wolfwood Refuge brought wolves to the pavilion for a community program. I had never been inside Hermitt Park so I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't realize how large the park is - it wasn't a long drive to the pavilion, but it was a beautiful, winding road, lined with wildflowers and trees. There were a number of campsites and cabins that we passed along the way. I live in Estes Park, but if I didn't, I would definitely consider staying here when visiting. Entrance for a day pass was only $9 and they did have other rates for people staying/longer terms. The Wolfwood Refuge event was great! We got to pet wolves and had so much fun learning about them!

Stayed here with a friend whilst we were over in the states. We had been to Denver before but couldn’t make it up to the mountains last time so we made a point of going up. Looking for places to camp in the mountains and found Hermit Park. We decided to go for the cabins and we ended up reserving Elkhorn which Was the last one available. It cost around $80 per night which was not bad! The cabin itself could fit 8 people inside and was very spacious with beds, table, storage areas, gas lamps and a wood stove. Outside there is a picnic bench and a fire pit (you can buy firewood from the main office at the entrance). Had some great nights sitting out by the fire and cooking some food. Saw quite a few deer (and possible a bear but it was dark). There is a toilet a few yards away from the cabin which was very clean! Hermit park is very close to estes park if you need supplies / wifi and the national park for hikes. Rangers would drive past every now and then but weren’t too invasive. One day we did come back to a note saying they had to put out our fire with 3 gallons of water because we left it unattended (it was pretty much out when we left and definitely would not need that much water, but I can see where they are coming from, don’t leave fire unattended!). All in all if you are looking to experience the outdoors without the discomfort of camping in a tent then I would definitely reccommend these cabins. Very relaxing and gives you a sense of being away from the city. And the views from the hikes in RMNP are amazing!

This was our first trip to this campground. We booked one of the last 2 available sites in the CG. It was probably one of the most exposed/least private in the CG and it was still quite acceptable. We were in the first loop of sites at Hermit Hollow. We saw deer, bunnies, chippies, a variety of birds, bear scat but no bears. There was a lovely trail that took off out of our area and went quite some ways into other parts of the Open Space. We walked the trails because we’d not brought our bikes but they would be great mountain biking trails, too. Very pretty vistas all along. Quiet. We saw only 6 other people on the trails during our 4 days there. We saw no evidence of overly active rangers as other reviewers commented. Occasionally one would drive past or the Camp Host would come around (on a little buggy badly in need of a new muffler!) but they didn’t hover or nag. Maybe they are just very aware of noisy campers and want to preserve a peaceful experience for all? Should we return to this area, we’d definitely make it our base and skip RMNP altogether. That’s another review.
