Beautiful View

This is a large park with beautiful views. The roads & sites are not ideal. We felt like we were off roaming in our RV. We watched a pull behind bottom out while pulling out of their site. Not a great playground but it did have a swing set & big tires to climb. We were in a 𝑫𝒆𝒍𝒖𝒙𝒆 site # 478 which has a yard with a picnic table. All hook ups available but the water was on the opposite side & pretty far. Luckily we also had our cold weather hose so we hooked them both together to reach.

Close enough to town, but out in nature

We wanted to spend time in Colorado and Manitou Springs, but not be in town overnight. This is just off a main road, but is far enough away to not hear the noise. The first night we were in site 197 and it was really close to other sites. The second night we moved to 482 and it was much better. We faced the hills and didn’t have any neighbors. If it is busy the sites would be close together.

The hook ups were okay. The black water hook up was old and didn’t screw in place; we had to place the metal plate over the top to keep it down and in place. Other campgrounds have nicer stub ups that are treaded.

WiFi was not reliable, but didn’t miss having the device for a couple days.

Staff was really nice and helpful.

Clean, quaint, pretty

The tent sites are separated from the RV side so that's nice. We got there after hours and they had our paperwork for our site ready for us. It was nice and quite, away from road noise, surrounded by mountains. The bathrooms were nice and the water pressure was amazing. There's a pretty walking trail around a small fishing pond that we rode our bikes around.

Great Staff

Staff was great here, extremely friendly and helpful. Great for families, super clean and well kept. There’s laundry and showers close to every site. WiFi there works as well. Awesome location close to a lot of great landmarks. Would camp here again.

So amazing!

Seriously looking around the area we stumbled upon this gym. It’s amazing. The tent set ups are perfect and the facilities are a bonus. Love the location to bounce around the area.

Side of the mountain side

Sites share a power pole but still not so close as some places. 🚿 Showerhouse & bathhouse was clean and handicap accessible. Museum on site was small but interesting. Friendly, helpful staff.

Long term Camping..

At it's finest! This is really a great location and campground for long term stays. In spite if the numerous hailstirms in the area, this site is fabulous!! A was here for 2 months and found the site to be well maintained and patrolled. Staff were always friendly and helpful. most sites are well shaded and well drained during rain storms. Also, be sure to see the May Tropical Museum while you are there.

Why so High??

I am confused by this site because it is small and expensive. I called ahead and they had no openings but said to swing by after check in to see if there were any people who did not show. I did and took a quick drive through the campsite and opted to not spend $40 for the sites here. It was way to small and packed together.

Expensive for what you get.

This campsite cost us $41 for one night in a tent sight. The sights were very close together with few trees for shade and privacy because of it. Luckily it was not very crowded on our side of the very large campsite. They do however have Wi-Fi and running water for toilets and showers. They have short hiking trails with beautiful views of the land and mountains. Fishing licences are available upon request for their small but full lake, however if you already have an state fishing licence you will have to purchase another one through them because they do not accept the state licences. A separate area for pets to run and play is also available at the back of the park, but otherwise, like most campgrounds, pets are required to be leashed. Long term camping is available here with many full timers helping out around the site. Very clean all around.

Another Day in Paradise

Camping for 3 days. Chose no water or hookup for tent camping. Those choices are available. Toilets,showers,laundromat. Great hiking. Half hour from Pikes Peak and Colorado Springs.
