Climbing & Mountaineering

Lumpy Ridge and Longs Peak are the two most popular destination for these activities. Longs Summit can be reached via the Keyhole Route during the summer months, and it’s a strenuous climb across many different rock platforms, ledges, and sheer vertical rock faces.

While all campgrounds except for Longs Peak allow RV access, no campgrounds within the park offer electric hookups. Glacier Basin, Moraine Park, and Timber Creek also have dump stations on-site.
