My favorite webcams: Estes Park, Rocky Mountain NP, Pikes Peak, Denver/Boulder
October 24, 2020: Fire officials have cut off the power in much of western Estes Park as part of their efforts to defend against the advancing East Troublesome wildfire. As a result, webcams in those areas are currently offline.
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!

CAMERAS LOVED BUT LOST (These cameras are currently unavailable but may return in the future)
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.
