My favorite webcams: Estes Park, Rocky Mountain NP, Pikes Peak, Denver/Boulder

Spectacular sunset over Indian Peaks Wilderness as seen from Nederland webcam

Oct. 11, 2019: For your convenience, I try to move offline cameras to the bottom of the page. But it’s tough to stay current because they often change.

Sept. 13, 2019: Just added, the Wild Basin cam. It’s beautiful and full color, despite the almost b/w screenshots, captured on a cloudy day.

Aug.12, 2019: Note the updated Boulder Flatiron cam, below. It now streams live and rotates every 20 seconds to show different views around Boulder. 

These are my favorite Colorado webcams from Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Ward, Nederland, Boulder, Denver, and Pikes Peak. They are my way of previewing the scenery, weather, traffic, or foliage if I’m planning a trip … or if I just want to revisit the places I love without leaving home.

Some of these cameras are live streaming and the others update at various intervals. All carry date/time stamps so you can see how recent the images are.

If you know of a great webcam in this area that I’ve missed, please let me know. Thanks!

I’ve compiled a map to show the approximate locations of these cameras:

National Park Service (includes local roads inside park: call 970-586-1222 for recorded message)

Colorado Department of Transportation (best for current highway conditions; click its blue/white “i” for legend)

If you are approaching Estes Park from the south on Hwy 7 and are headed to the park, I strongly suggest you take Marys Lake Road (map) to avoid the congestion in downtown Estes.

  1. Great news! Have really been missing my daily visit with the Alpine VCtr cam– forgot about CDOT views, and thanks for researching these new options!

    (Snow on Pikes Peak last week? Early winter? Need one of those mosquito killer ones this year fo sure)

  3. These webcams are great. I watched falcons living on the tower of Lincoln Cathedral for a long time. Great if the catch other things too. Love Estes Park. thanks for sharing this.

  4. Would love to see “LIVE” video streaming of the Aerial Tram in Estes Park instead of a still picture that refreshes ever 5 seconds. It says sound on that one too and there is not sound.

  5. Too bad the Estes Park Tram cam and cam looking West is gone.

  6. Okay your page is my new distraction. and it gave me another idea. All around Guam Webcams.

    • Glad you like it. But I warn you, webcams can be addictive! Not a day goes by that I don’t check one or more of these webcams to see what’s going on elsewhere, usually in the mountains. And they’re always changing, depending on the weather or time of day.
