Bordered on three sides by Rocky Mountain National Park, yet only a 15-minute drive away from downtown Estes Park, YMCA of the Rockies – Estes Park Center is your basecamp to adventure in the heart of Colorado.
Often recognized as one of the best family resorts in the US, Estes Park Center offers affordable accommodation and dining options, over 30 types of activities (many of which are included in your stay or Y membership), and 860 acres of ponderosa pines and spectacular mountain scenery.
Elevate your next gathering into an unforgettable and purposeful occasion by hosting it at our mission-based Estes Park Center. Our group rates include your choice of accommodations, meal plans, and meeting space, as well as complimentary access to dozens of activities.
We carefully consider all special lodging requests, but we are unable to guarantee specific cabins or lodge rooms, the exact location of your accommodations, or fireplace type (wood vs. gas).
Cell service varies. At Estes Park Center AT&T/ T-Mobile have strong service. At Snow Mountain Ranch, Verizon has the best service. There is little-to-no cell service in Rocky Mountain National Park.
We have a unique booking system that includes booking windows for cabin donors, members, and the general public. Learn more in this handy guide.
Lodge rooms and cabins include bed linens, towels, and free Wi-Fi. Cabins also include kitchen utensils, dishes, pots and pans, and a coffee maker. We do not have air conditioning in any of our lodging, but cool mountain air makes up for it! Our lodge rooms and most cabin types do not include televisions — but you can borrow games and puzzles from our libraries and programs departments! Wi-Fi is free, with no password, but it’s not a secure network.
We offer a linen exchange, where you can bring your used towels and linens and exchange them for clean ones, but we do not provide housekeeping turn-overs during stays.
Alcoholic beverages are not sold on-grounds and may be consumed only in the privacy of your room, cabin or group meeting space.
Reservation deposits are fully refundable up until the time periods outlined below.
Lodge Rooms, Campsites and Yurts: No refund 48 hours prior to arrival
