Area Status: Open
There are 29 first-come, first-served campsites that allow tents, campers, trailers, and RVs, though the sites are better-suited for tent camping than for trailers or RVs due to the unpaved roads, steep hills and short pull-ins.

All sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Picnic tables, fire rings, and portable toilets are provided. There is no drinking water, electricity, hook-ups, dump stations, or showers. A maximum of eight people are allowed per site.
Although not a full-service campground, Meeker Park Overflow Campground tends to fill to capacity on weekends due to its proximity to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Longs Peak Trailhead is approximately two miles north of the campground, and the Wild Basin Trailhead is about two miles to the south.
