Our climber’s lodge is located at 341 Moraine Ave in downtown Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park and a lifetime of great climbing and skiing. We have shuttles running from our doorstep to and from Denver International Airport daily. Visit Estes Park Shuttle for more information.
Our Lodge carries historical significance as the first National Park Service headquarters for RMNP, although the facility has been renovated several times including a major facelift to the main floor in late 2010 so you can fully enjoy your stay. Our heated bunkhouse is upstairs from our classroom and features 16 single beds in three rooms, as well as several bathrooms, hot showers, linens, a full kitchen, wifi, and a lounge with games and a ping-pong table. Spend your evening socializing with fellow climbers, and enjoy waking up in the morning with no long drive. Located only blocks from downtown Estes, you can easily walk to almost any place in town. Enjoy a hot shower and a warm, comfortable bed after a big day of climbing or skiing. Swap stories and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow outdoor enthusiasts as you cook dinner, sort gear and prepare for the next day’s adventure.
