We are staying at the Winding River RV Resort in Grand Lake, CO which is right outside the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Winding River EntranceThe RV Park has a stable with horses that can be rented for trail rides, a petting area with a pony, calf, sheep, lambs, baby pinks, ducks and chicken.  There are cabins to rent, two covered wagons for rent, RV sites with corals for people to bring their own horses.

We enjoyed walking around the park and seeing all the sites.IMG 1120

Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the National Parks that require reservations to enter.  The reservations could be made the first of each month for the entire month.  We did not have reservations, but anyone can enter the park before 9:00AM and after 3:30PM.  So, after 3:30, we drove to the East Inlet Trailhead and hiked to Adams Falls  and then into the meadow past the falls.
