Bright colors, beautiful valleys, warm weather
We were disappointed with this RVC property. It is poorly laid out and the back in premium sites are not really premium. The one we were first assigned was very short and had a large drain in the middle of the site. (S12). Luckily we were able to move. Sites very close together and most utilities in the back. The staff is not all that friendly and helpful, except for one young man who helped me find a good route in around the construction. I had to leave two phone messages and a Facebook message to get info on how to maneuver around the horrible construction site right at the entrance. I only learned of the problems through rv park reviews. Typical of a corporate owned park. Websites should post current conditions but they don’t.
A park of their price should at a minimum have a shelf or racks in the SHOWERS to place shower items. No benches, no hooks, nothing.
Not that well managed. All the T-shirt’s and clothing covered the entire time we were there. When I asked, he said it was because they hadn’t taken inventory yet, and weren’t allowed to sell them until they are inventoried. Lots of red rocks piled up various places. Guess they don’t have anyone that can spread it. Building materials in the restrooms not very appealing. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any other rv parks any better. Their location to garden of the Gods can’t be beat. It would have been nice for them to tell us how to get there when we checked in. Next time we will stay about 30 miles west of town.
there are places to stop and take great pictures
Beautiful area but lots of tourists!
Amazing rock formations in a great city
This was my first time RV camping. Check in was easy and an employee showed me to the site and helped me back into my site. Very helpful and patient with me! Pool looked nice but we didn’t use it. The bathroom/shower house was clean and modern. Construction going on in the roads around the campground made it a little difficult to get in and out and figure out where to park for check in but the campground itself was very nice.
I was recommended this spot for a stay by another traveler so I was very excited to have Garden of the Gods in my backyard to say the least as it's name boasted. I drove in and as I started to see the signs I was more and more excited, only to find out that this campsite offers literally every kind of stay but tent camping.
When I went to check into the office I was met by a very nice woman who had to break the news to me. I think she could tell that I was disappointed after seeing the amenities which included an amazing looking pool, which would have been perfect for my weary self after all my driving.
But because she could see it written all over my face she pointed me in the direction of another campsite which would be perfect for me for the night and gave me a few little tips on the area as well including telling me about the backstory of Garden of the Gods which is pretty amazing.
She gave me more than a few brochures for the area before I finally walked out the door and offered me a discount if I decided I wanted to try out one of their cabins on my next stay!! Excellent customer service so needless to say if I am in Colorado Springs in the near future I will stop here! Sometimes the only downside I find to tent camping is missing out on the opportunity to stay at some of these amazing sites with such welcoming people.
Because of her tip however I was very close to Garden of the Gods and was able to explore it and make it to camp with plenty of time to spare!
