Wonderful campground to use as a base for the attractions around Colorado Springs. Full hook-ups and all amenities. Beautiful view from our site(Swift Puma, site 24) Quiet, clean and comfortable. I would recommend this campground for a great place stay while visiting this area.

The campground is way overpriced. They charged $7 per vehicle, and we were on two motorcycles. Plus, their fees do not include the showers. The showers are $1 for 4 minutes, and it takes half that time for the water to warm up. By the time we paid for parking, showers, and a spot with hookups so we could charge our stuff, we would have been better off getting an inexpensive hotel room. Would have had a lot more privacy that way!

This was the perfect camping spot! We explored all the area attractions during the day and relaxed here in the evening! We saw deer and rabbits right from our site 7 (loop a). We saw prairie dogs every day when we drove in and out of the park! I posted pics of the beautiful views from our site!

This was one of the nicest campgrounds I have been in in terms of how new it is and what amenities it offers. The downside is that privacy is not good at all for the vast majority of the campground, although the tent-only sites are much nicer. Incredibly, each has its own individual water supply, so you can fill your water jugs right at your own site. Nearby bathrooms have flush toilets, electricity, and showers. It's a little unusual for Colorado camping, in that you can see the city and lights of Colorado Springs, and the sites have paved paths, groomed steps, and tent pads with gravel, etc -- a little too artificial and not very rugged at all. On the other hand, it's kind of nice to have it all so easy and close to the city. It's a fun place to stay for a night or two, but if you're looking for a real Colorado camping experience, this is not really it. As my son said, "this is as close to a hotel as you can get while still sleeping in a tent." We had a great time, though, and would happily go back again for another night or two.
