Report: We went in early May and it was pretty quiet. There was still snow on the mountains, which made some of the higher trails a little difficult. Moraine Park was clear though, and from the campsight we saw huge herds of elk and the most beautfiul susnets. Beautiful place, beautiful park. I can't wait to go again!
