Your Spot is Waiting
Plenty of parking in and around Estes Park makes it convenient and easy for guests to leave their vehicles for the day or even just a few hours. Parking lots accommodate all kinds of vehicles-from RVs and buses to personal cars and motorcycles. Once parked, guests can access most of the Estes Valley and even Rocky Mountain National Park thanks to free shuttles operated by the Town of Estes Park and the national park.
The largest parking area lies east of town at the Fairgrounds at Stanley Park. From here, guests can transfer to one of two free Estes Park shuttle lines. Public restrooms are located at the fairgrounds lot as well.
Two parking areas in town welcome RVs and buses. The first is the Estes Park Visitor Center (500 Big Thompson Avenue) near the intersection of highways 34 and 36 All five, color-coded lines of the free Estes Park shuttles plus the national park hiker shuttle run from the Estes Park Visitor Center; park here and you can access virtually all of Estes Park. The second is located east of Town Hall at the junction of MacGregor and Elkhorn avenues. Access this lot by heading east on Elkhorn Ave. from either highway 34 or 36, making a right into the lot near the pedestrian crossing light.
These two lots along with three more on W. Elkhorn Avenue and two others south of Elkhorn on Moraine Avenue offer unlimited parking. Additional parking areas around town present 3-hour and 30-minute options. Much of the on-street parking along Elkhorn Avenue, Moraine Avenue, Virginia Avenue and the side roads around Bond Park allows 3-hour stays. North on MacGregor Avenue and Bighorn Avenue, street parking is unlimited. Check out the Estes Park Downtown Parking Map and Schedule (pdf) to find the lot that's right for you. Whether you're pulling a camper, driving an RV, captaining a bus or steering the family car, Estes Park has a spot just for you!
