My husband, two friends, and I road tripped all the way from Indiana to camp at Red Canyon Park. The views were so beautiful, they looked fake! The mountains were gracefully uplifting the sun as it shone down on the beautiful canyon. There were plenty of views to take in and sights to see.…

We had a great time! The site fit our 38' RV just fine, the camp fire set up was clean and offered seating on the rocks with great views! The park was recently taken over by the city and is now $20 a night. Good hiking and biking trails.
The dunes are super cool but good grief, it was busy. It was much cooler than we thought because of a strong breeze. Highly recommend

This is not exactly our type of campground, which is the only reason I give it 3 out of 5 stars. It is a little too exposed to sun and wind (see pics), but there are some sites that are tucked away a little more comfortably than others. I suggest looking at a site map before choosing your…

This is a lovely park about 30 minutes south of Colorado Springs. We camped here for 5 nights in a back in spot with full hookups, site 51. The site was extremely spacious with room to park our truck to the side and still have a big yard. There is a fire pit and picnic table and we were shaded by…

Very cute and quaint. Host was friendly and nice.
This was such a beautiful and peaceful campground! We were lucky to get there before dark so we could see everything. Nearby there is a military base that plays music in the evening and morning. Very easy to find our site and get setup. We loved it here!

Camp area was more for unhoused people in the area. I was camping in my car and the site was a walk-up, so I couldn't use it luckily. The facility did work with me and put me in a non-working RV site by the tent area, but someone pulled on my door during the night. The sink in the shower area was…
The valley this campground is in, is flat out gorgeous. Amazing boulder mountains and tall pines make for stellar views. Sleeping with the sound of the river was also awesome for the whole family. But, it isn't perfect (depending on your site). We reserved site 21 b/c it was right next to the…

What a great little spot to relax for a weekend. It’s quiet and because there are only ten spot it seems like your in a private oasis.. the host Becky and Kirk were great and so sweet.

Just got back from 3 nights at the Stoll Mountain campground. Our 2 kids and 2 dogs had a great time exploring the shoreline and fishing. Facilities were clean, rangers were friendly and helpful. Only complaint were the bugs, but might just be the time of year. Will visit again soon!
Not a place for overlanding or tent camping, this site is strictly catered to RV’s. We had a “primitive tent” spot reserved for one night, but the site was not what we expected. You are not far at all from I-24, I mean maybe 200 yards? There is a house right beside the tent sites with a deck that…

We really enjoyed our time here. There are 12 sites, some have a larger footprint than others. Smaller sized ones are: 3, 4, 5, and 6. They are all a fine size though. Has a fire pit with grill, picnic table, and sites 2, 5, and 9 have the log covering. The sites are pretty close together, but we…

Very peaceful location with lake, mountains and stream. Even when full it isn’t overrun. Lake is great for kayaks, SUPs and stocked for fishing. Very popular and fills quickly - a handful of sites are first come first serve. Used cell booster to get decent signal
I absolutely loved this spot. My boyfriend and live in our car and travel all over and this was a top notch car camping spot with endless beautiful views. Plenty of spots for everyone, super quite with the occasional car passing.
