We chose this site for the location, which is great, and that they accept dogs. Which is true, but they aren't dog-friendly, or at least not to anything but little dogs apparantly. They put us across from the private residence lawn, which has big signs about dogs not going to the bathroom there. As soon as we were positioned, and let our dogs out, they naturally went for the lawn to do their business (as opposed to the all-encompassing gravel). The owner ran over yelling at us, 'you've got five seconds to get the dogs off of there,' as we were saying we'd pick up after them, before our dogs had even gone to the bathroom! We requested to move to a spot with a grassy stream bank but that too had 'no dogs' signs and wasn't available anyway. From then on we were constantly eyed by the managers from their post by the office. We'd forgotten to request a military discount at check-in, and at check-out were told that our ticket was already closed out and that they didn't charge us an extra dog fee so that made up for it (which was never mentioned when we asked if more than two dogs was acceptable). We were glad to move on, to the rest of dog-friendly Manitou Springs.
