Looking for help! I deeply apologize if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm going to be doing a loop hike in RMNP from the 17th - 22nd. I decided to fly in on the 15th into denver in the am. I have from about 8:30 am on the 15th until the 17th at 8:00 am when I have to be at the visitors center. Then I need a place to stay on the 22nd in the pm before I fly out on the 23rd. I'm going budget! So I'm looking into camping somewhere. I looked into renting a car until the 23rd (ulp!). Is it doable to take a shuttle to Estes Park and maybe rent a car when I get there for a couple of days? Also, of course, the campgrounds that take online reservations are full for those days. What are the odds that a walk-up site is going to be available? Or do you have any other suggestions of places to be on the 15/16th?
Any help you could give would be SO APPRECIATED! Especially since I'm a flatlander...
