Park and site layout are irregular, as is utility placement, so be sure your rig will be able to fit and hook up. Gravel sites, some not level. This is mostly a destination camp for families with children. We used as base camp for some foodie adventures in the area, for that it was not ideal. Wi-Fi connectivity was mostly good, but with sporadic and annoying drop outs. We will probably not return.

Date of Stay:

A compact park, with smallish sites, but well kept up. Quite a few big rigs, plus a number of sport fishermen using it as a base. Rating would be higher except for noise level - site is right between busy railroad tracks and a highway heavily used by log trucks and other 18-wheelers. Wi-Fi was reliable with acceptable throughput except after a power glitch. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

New and very clean park. Lots of pavement and no shade, very hot. Right next to Hwy 12, much traffic noise including some semis using Jake brakes. Wi-Fi was dead when we arrived, stayed so until (apparently) the weekday manager reset it. Disappointed considering the cost, we will probably not return.

Date of Stay:

Well kept park, nice large and partially shaded sites. Park itself is quiet, but some noise from nearby railroad, highway, and road construction (the latter is temporary). Wi-Fi signal strength excellent, but throughput highly erratic, and stopped entirely frequently. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Clean and well-kept park. Level paved site. Friendly and helpful manager. Front/back pull-through sites weren't a problem for us. Pretty quiet area, with access to paved walking trail. Wi-Fi signal good, but throughput erratic. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stopped for one night as a layover on the way from CA to ID. Well-kept park, level sites. A number of seasonal / permanent workers based here. Reasonably quiet, but they tend to drive fast through the camp, and leave early in morning. The construction company next door also starts up early. Quite a bit of dust from next door as well as in the park - a dust devil came through just as were setting up camp, left a lot of grit. Wi-Fi has good signal strength but erratic throughput, seems about par these days. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Park is on the edge of town, and positioned far enough from the highway to reduce noise levels. There is a permanent/owned site section to the park that has concrete pads and separate service locations, but the transient sites are also long and level, though gravel. Tents and group camps are permitted here, and were being used to stage rafting trips, but are somewhat separate from the RV sites and noise level was not objectionable. WiFi is free, though passworded. Signal strength and actual bandwidth were very good. The only oddity was very short office hours - closed at 5PM. There is a site labelled as campground host, who we never saw. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We used this park as an overnight camp location. The cost is rather high for an en route camp, but many use it as a destination camp for Cedar Breaks, etc. Clean park and staff actively maintaining it. Level gravel sites. Recently added free WiFi which worked well. Only complaint is some road noise, and a trash truck that did its work at 6AM. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here overnight before tackling the Sierra. Nice level concreted pads. Some road noise as the park is positioned right where trucks accelerate/decelerate on the edge of town. WiFi is free, though has an awkward and probably unnecessary password system. Signal strength very good and bandwidth adequate. We would stay here again for an overnight.

Maybe because we were paying 'full freight' our expectations were higher. On the good side, the park is very clean, sites are reasonably sized, and the owners are friendly. On the down side, there were barking dogs and music audible across the park during a weekend day, with no apparent attempt to enforce the noise limits. Sites near the road will get noise from trucks headed to a nearby quarry. Sites were freshly graveled, but not very level. WiFi service was highly erratic and failed completely for one evening. This is not really a good site for visiting Colorado Springs, being so far south of town. We would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This park has two personalities. It is a large park, with a number of permanents and seasonals. The former have their own part of the park, and the seasonals are intermixed with transient sites. During the week the park was partly full, quiet, and - unusually for a RV park - the WiFi was not only reliable but provided good throughput even during the evening hours. On a weekend night, the second personality showed. The park filled up, including tent sites with multiple vehicles. Noise levels increased dramatically, including music and barking dogs. The WiFi service also collapsed under the extra load. We would stay here again, but only during a weekday.

Date of Stay:

A clean park, and the BBQ option was appreciated the day we pulled in. WiFi service is free but erratic. Some sites are side-by-side hookups, and they are narrow. Since the park was only partly full the managers were leaving every other space empty, which left some elbow room, but if it was more full (e.g., during rodeo week), you'd be living in your neighbor's lap. Some road noise at sites towards the front of the park. Also some barking dogs which no one was controlling. Some recycling is available. We would stay here again.

We were originally given a full services site, but the WiFi was unusable there, and we were being plagued with mosquitoes from a nearby drainage ditch. We asked to be moved to a drier water/electric only site. The manager obliged on this and gave a refund without being asked. However, the sites close enough to the office to get reliable WiFi access are also next to a children's play area which was noisy at times. We stayed here for one night as an en route camp, and would do so again.

Date of Stay:

We were a little worried about this place, as we were towing and knew about the fore/aft pull-through arrangement. Since we arrived early we had no problem getting the forward position, and didn't notice anyone else have issues in the four nights that we stayed. Staff was friendly and laundry was reasonably priced. Wi-Fi bandwidth was poor/sporadic except in late evening. Some noise (dogs, thumping music) from adjoining trailer park, which is under same management. We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Helpful and friendly campground staff. On site BBQ was nice when we pulled in late due to a flat tire en route. The campground is in the not-so-nice end of town, but it seemed fairly isolated and safe. There is some city noise, but more from the frequent comings and goings and the number of people present in such a large camp. Also, the Wi-Fi is seriously under-provisioned: A camp this size will consume as much Internet bandwidth as a good sized neighborhood. The WISP (Nomadix) chokes at any time other than early morning and late evening, so it's clearly not adequate.
