Exceptional staff at office during our 2-night stay. Check-in and later questions about the local area were greeted with enthusiasm and enlightening answers. Entering the park and then your assigned site is a Challenge with a capital "C". Leaving the office area you have to make a significant right turn around a huge, fender scraping, trailer attacking tree and go up a 1000 yard hill with a very steep grade that would strike fear in the heart of any Nepalese sherpa...and it includes speed bumps...

Leaving the office area you have to make a significant right turn around a huge, fender scraping, trailer attacking tree and go up a 1000 yard hill with a very steep grade that would strike fear in the heart of any Nepalese sherpa...and it includes speed bumps impeding your way. You can't carry any speed up the hill due to the speed bumps. Oh, and it's very narrow but two-way traffic is allowed, as it's the only way in and out, up or down. Once on top of the hill the campsites become visible. Our assigned pull through was not easy to get into as all of their sites are on slopes with vertical drop-offs from the pathway access "road". I bottomed out the back of the 5er going down into our site. That was only after I had to put the pickup into 4WD just to get up and around the access "road" to the row of sites. Once there, we discovered the water hookup was in a box below ground level. Okay, easier for the mower but it was full of grass and who knows what kind of snakes and critters are living in it. Getting level was time consuming and not easy with one of four trailer wheels barely remaining on the ground. Leaving required negotiating the aforementioned terrain challenges and tackling the hill (which now resembles an Olympic downhill ski-slope) all the while conducting significant braking action for the dramatic maneuver around the aforementioned tree. All said, I'd recommend finding another RV park when visiting Colorado Springs.

I wanted the full beauty of nature and comfort of home when looking for a Campground/RV park. This is definitely it. You are literally in the mountains here and the owners try very hard to keep nature and comfort at a balance. They are very helpful and friendly. Ithe was my first time towing a camper and they spent over an hour helping me set up. I'm not new to camping though. The pads were natural red dirt and gravel indigenous to the mountains you're in so yes if it rains it gets a little bit... Read More

The pads were natural red dirt and gravel indigenous to the mountains you're in so yes if it rains it gets a little bit dirty. But that's camping. They are decent priced. Have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a small lake to fish at and nice little hiking trails. The views were stunning. Clean bathrooms and showers. Don't forget the iconic May Insect museum. Yes you are next to Fort Carson Army Base but I enjoyed hearing Revelie and Taps. I highly recommend this place to all. If you want luxury go to a hotel. Want camping in the mountains come here and relax and enjoy your stay. Coffee in the morning here is wonderful. Need help or have an issue ask the staff and they will do their best to accommodate.

If you want to enjoy camping and nature rather than staying in a parking lot, this place is for you. You can hike within the 1000 acre parks many trails. You can find Wild Turkey, Cottontail Rabbits, Deer and various species of birds... the Humming, Stellars Jay, Red Tail Hawk and the largest... the 'Golden Eagle'. My favorite view was the rainbow of colors in the sky just before the Sun rose over the fishing lake.

Not everything at this campground was bad. The setting was nice with lots of trees. Only about 5 miles from Colorado Springs, so shopping was convenient. Now for the not so good things: -The road from the office to the campground is very narrow (one way only in a class a RV) and it is a blind road, no way to see if someone is coming the other way. -The interior roads are dirt and rough. Lots of potholes and ruts. -The full hook-up site that we had was dirt and soft. With afternoon rains showers,... Read More

Lots of potholes and ruts. -The full hook-up site that we had was dirt and soft. With afternoon rains showers, lots of mud getting into the RV. -The sites are very close together, so you will hear your neighbors if you have your windows open. -Small trash in the parking site and throughout the park. ( bottle caps, empty beverage cans,bottles and cigarette butts in fire rings, etc.) -Campground has around 200 sites, but laundry has only 5 washers and dryers. -Trash dumpsters were located at only one spot in the campground and by the time we left were literally overflowing. Since this is bear country, not a good thing. We definitely will not be back.

Great Out-Of-Town location out in the country. Stay here and enjoy the foothills and pine trees. Very quiet. The staff is very eager to help you with any leveling problems you will encounter. I would stay here again when in the Colorado Springs area.
