If your planning a camping trip to the Rocky Mountains, then you may want to consider Lone Rock & Esterbrook campgrounds. And, as luck would have it, we recently added all of the campsite photos for those two darling campgrounds. Both campgrounds are sitting at an elevation of about 6,400 feet and offer breathtaking views of the mountains and rivers. They also both offer a variety of outdoor recreation your family will be sure to enjoy!

Esterbrook is a smaller campground with a total of 12 campsites and is located in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest in Wyoming.

There is plenty of outdoor recreation fun up at these campgrounds including: lean-to fort building, horseback riding, hunting, OHVing, hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing. Esterbrook is also quite the hot spot for fishing due to the nearby creeks and lakes.
