While we will never be returning, I'll agree with some of the good reviews... nice location and setting, clean... But I'll mostly agree with and add to some of the sub par reviews. This is a small park and the spots are packed in tight, the wifi is a *joke* and and our electric supply wasn't powerful enough to run our tiny air conditioner properly (not sure how that was even possible).
What will keep us from ever going back to this park were our dealings with the owner's wife. Suffice it to say that unless she suffers from some sort of personality disorder or mental illness, she needs to work on her "people skills," and should probably consider not working in the hospitality industry. My husband begged that I not discuss identifying details of our unpleasant incidents (plural) with her, but know that we did not break any of their numerous rules and did not deserve to be treated with any sort of disrespect. We were also "eyed" by the owners after our run-in with the her, as a previous review mentioned, and we felt uncomfortable being at the park.
I saw the Garden of the Gods Campground while jogging on the path behind the park, so we'll be trying them out on our next stay in Manitou Springs. Their sites are also on the creek and walking path, looked larger and not so close together, had a great location and more facilities (including a pool). Hopefully the owners and employees there have their meds right.
