Something not right?

Description

Permanently Closed.
The church allowed just a few cars/vans to park especially when in need, but the county has disallowed this.

As described. Text the number to get permission and be sure to pay! Parking lot not level, but not terrible if you park in the right spot without levelers.

Totally worth the $10 considering other options in the area! Perfect jump point for RMNP.

Report Check-In

Great spot and just 20 min from RMNP. There was only one other vehicle when I visited overnight. Full strength Verizon coverage too.

Report Check-In

Stayed tel night. Rolled in after dark left before sunrise to get to Rocky Mountain. Great place if you need to get an early parking spot at a trail head. It's probably the closest you'll get. There are "no overnight parking" signs but I'm not sure if they are applicable to the church since I texted the number And was given permission to stay

Report Check-In

A church in the quiet part of town. Big parking lot but very unleveled. After reading other comments we see that you need to donate to stay here but we couldn’t find the box and nothing was left on our vehicle in the morning. We were the only ones there.

Report Check-In

Here's the information I was sent over text. it seems requested donations have increased. Still very much a convenience given the absurd rates from any of the campgrounds around Estes Park.
--
Just park anywhere except right in front of the building. We do request a donation of $5 for car/SUV, $10 for Van, and $20 for RV/Trailer. Donation box (Dollhouse Church) is to the left of lower doors. The donation box also has some basic rules (no fires, parties, etc.). https://estesparkbaptistchurch.org/EPBC-Impact/

Report Check-In

We stayed here overnight and it was perfectly fine. Not a lot of level spots but definitely doable with levelers.

Report Check-In

We arrived at 10pm completely tired and we will give the donation the morning when we will wake up, but he put the envelope and rule on my windshield early morning before.

Report Check-In

Allowed limited overnight parking with permission especially those in need.
