I was skeptical of the closeness of the city but it turn out to be a very nice campground. Gobbler Grove sits on a flat area adjacent to Cheyenne Mountain with about 6 or 7 campground sites. All but one look at the city of Colorado Springs. I also located right below the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) a military installation dated from the Cold War which mission was to warn the Army of any ballistic missile or air attacks against North America and also very close to Peterson Air Force base. The proximity to these two areas makes this campground a bit noise since you can hear distant BOOMS and the military Reveille around 7 am. The closeness to the city makes this campground particularly interesting since there is a lot of areas to visit around. We recommend The Garden of the Gods, Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, Pike’s Peak, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Cave of the Winds and Manitou Cliff Dwellings among many others. Cheyenne State Park also offers a many trials specially for mountain bikes and horses, bow target, and a camper service building with bathrooms, laundry machines and dryers, hot showers at $1 per four minutes and a vending machine. Overall the camp is nice and quiet. I don’t give it a 5 star due to the military noise which it was not bad, but it remind you how close were you from the air base and the NORAD.
