Summer 2020 in Estes Park

For summer 2020, many people are looking forward to getting out of the house and responsibly visiting the beautiful Rocky Mountains. After spending time indoors, there is a new appreciation for the simple things in life: breathing the fresh air, spending time outside, and taking in a scenic view.  As travel preferences shift, this is the perfect time to focus on more local vacations that can be reached by a quick road trip!

A Scenic Vacation within Driving Distance

Estes Park is the perfect vacation destination for those who live in Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and other cities within driving distance. While things begin to return to normal, using your own car is one of the safest ways to travel. Additionally, having your own private vacation rental in Estes Park allows you to spend quality time with your loved ones while maintaining a safe distance from others.

Practice Social Distancing in the Rocky Mountains

Taking part in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and fishing are great ways to practice social distancing while on vacation. There are many trails, walkways, and scenic drives surrounding Estes Park. The area’s biggest attraction, Rocky Mountain National Park, began a phased reopening late May, and we’ve included more information below to help inform you of the new reservation system put into place. While this summer will be different due to large events being canceled, there are still many opportunities to relax and experience the great outdoors in Estes Park.

Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National began a phased reopening in late May and has instituted new policies and procedures to promote safe recreation for Summer 2020, including:
  • Requiring a mandatory reservation required to enter the park
  • Instituting a timed entry permit for all vehicles
  • Enacting an indefinite closure of some services and facilities
Entrance fees remain in place and are $25.00 per vehicle. You can find more information and make your reservation on the park’s website. The park is continuing to provide updates and revise their approach as the phased reopening continues to progress.

Vacation Rentals are the Preferred Choice for Travelers

While restrictions are lifted and life begins to gradually return to normal, it is still important to make sound decisions and choose Estes Park lodging that encourages social distancing. Our Estes Park vacation rentals offer a private retreat for you and your loved ones. You will be able to enjoy your own private kitchen to cook meals in and spend time with family. There are also many local restaurants that currently offer take out, some of which deliver directly to Fall River Village.

We’re excited to welcome all of our guests back to Fall River Village and look forward to a summer full of outdoor fun and relaxation!
