Always a favorite! Great base camp for exploring the area such as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Seven Falls. We were in site #42. Excellent views, but there is a big dip when pulling in, so remove your weight bars before backing in your trailer. - colochoclab

We loved this campground. We had a long pull through with a decent view. The site was very large and very clean. The grandkids loved the playground and the hiking trails. - 06Millennium

My family loves camping in this park . Full hookups, clean, well monitored and maintained. There are nice trails for hiking and picnic areas that even my young children enjoy. The view over the plains is breathtaking. Sunrises are amazing. The site is easy to get to, and there is plenty of room between sites. - Wildcat14

The Colorado Springs Elks lodge has a 12 electric/water sites located behind the lodge. Six of the sites seem to be occupied by longer term campers. Sites are extremely close together. Big rigs are okay. Camping is limited to Elks members. There is an onsite dump station. The campground fills up in the summer but dry camping is allowed for $5.00 per night. No reservations. On-site campground host. Great location for touring the area. Will stay here again in our motorhome. - lmg

Nice view and friendly management. We did appreciate management apologizing for the weeds and pot holes in roads due to recent rains.......and understand this happens. However our site had an old grill and some lawn matts I assume left by a previous RV'er.....this I feel is unexceptable for a park that charges a full price of $50 per night. An ok park for a over night stay, but would not want to stay long term. Park has many permanent residents. - John3508

The park was clean and the staff friendly. Not really a resort, but great location close to all attractions. All services worked as expected. Will visit again when in the area. - AdamBryner

Large, gravel sites. Friendly staff. Nice view of the city. Close to services and Interstate. Park allows large aggressive dogs. 2/3 of the park rules deals with pets. Many sites have tall fences for their dogs. Many sites are cluttered with trash, used car parts, utility trailers, pick up truck caps, portable car tents and more. Very trashy park. - BlueSkyRanch

Gravel pad, full hookups, large pull through spots, space to put up 2 man tent in RV spots. Picnic table, roomy gravel area around parking spot. Clean, quite and friendly park. Close to site seeing areas. Swimming pool, safe play ground & inside store. - mamacallsen

This is very tight parking at best. Lots of permanent guests. We have been traveling in MH since last April and have been thousands of miles up the Pacific coasts and this park has been the first to make me feel pretty uneasy about staying here. It is very close to Manitou Springs and the historic district of Colorado Springs. WiFi poor, Internet for AT&T very slow. You have to turn in between McDonald's and Taco Bell to cross into park. Very overpriced in my opinion. I would not stay here again. - HillCountryRV0128

I would not consider this a big rig friendly park. Not very well maintained. Friendly staff, but, in general, not a very impressive park, to say the least. We would not stay again. - tudar

We stayed a month in this park with a 42 foot 5th wheel and that was a good value. However, the WiFi is very poor here and the back-in spaces are very tight. The interior roads are paved, however the sites were dirt/gravel for long stays. The good news was our site was very well shaded with trees which kept things cool most of the day. Electric is metered here but very reasonable @ $0.10/kwh. The personnel are very nice and helpful. Be aware this park was very crowded and had very high turnover daily, so vehicles are moving constantly. Based on other parks we saw in the area, this was the best looking by far. You could have a bonfire on your site as long as you had a fire pit w/wire cover so that was nice. Very nice front office with a general store. Also a lady was in the lobby to sign up folks for Jeep Tours if desired. A vendor cooked and sold fresh dinners five days a week right on site. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

This review is about the Standard sites part of the park which we stayed in for 2 nights due to a short notice and full park. The back section is smaller back in sites sitting on red clay which gets into everything and is worse when wet. Site had concrete pad for picnic table...dirt for RV....go figure.
Wifi was pretty awful...bathrooms were reasonable and reasonably clean but not anything I'd brag about. Cable was only available at premium sites...just had a few over the air channels which didn't offer much variety. My first experience with a sewer hookup UNDER the coach. We left after 2 days and finding another place with room.
Now if you had booked one of the nice gravel pull through sites with 50 amps, cable and more throughput on the wifi...you might be a much happier camper...though somewhat poorer...so just take this as caution if you are thinking about a 30 amp standard site. - Camaraderie

Staff is friendly and helpful.
During our stay the park turned out to be a very busy and overcrowded place. Many families with (small) children, outnumbered only by the quantity of dogs, so you can definitely say the park is pet friendly. Two pools were not enough to accommodate all the swim enthusiasts.
The 'Standard' sites are fairly level but rather small. There are larger sites available (close to the road), with prices up to $60 a night. Traffic noise is very audible during the night. Speed limit in the park is apparently for guests only, not for (cleaning) staff.
Wi-Fi signal strength was fair, but the speed very slow. - Bluesbirdy

My issue with this park is getting into it. You don't have any idea of what the park or your space looks like until after you've paid. Very small parking area for check in, would have been difficult for a second customer to park and come in, we have a 35' fifth wheel. From the office to the spaces is an uphill, double blind driveway. Sharp right and a continuing right. Only wide enough for one way traffic. The park is unpaved and rough. Dirt/Gravel. Electric on wrong side, water distant (used 2 hoses). Employee gave us sewer, we said we didn't need it, she continued saying it was the best space to get into and that it was only $2. Couldn't have reached sewer if we needed to and it was just an open pipe. Can only imagine our difficulty if we had insisted on another space. Right next to storage shed. Price seemed very high for this park but in this area may be consistent. Would not stay here again. - abqnm

This park has potential, but apparently there is no motivation to improve it. We stayed here in a 43' RV and it was extremely tricky to get it up the hill and into the site. Site was the most rutted, unlevel pad we have ever stayed on. Flooding had occurred here and the "stream bed" running thru the site hadn't been filled in. Many of the campers here were transients with junk on their sites. Water pressure was adequate. The site had new 50 amp. Our Verizon worked fine, the parks WiFi is useless. This park had the only monthly vacancy in the area on short notice, so we had no where else to stay while visiting family. It's a shame they don't improve the park, as the scenery around it is beautiful and quiet. - milliga

This appears to be an old, not well kept park. It's located on a huge piece of property and has several sites, RV and tent, but with many being unusable. When we arrived, we were given a map to our site and, when we went to plug in, the polarity was reversed. We called the office to have someone come out and look at it. The staff does not maintain the grounds, i.e., tall grass, weeds, etc. We had a significant storm during our stay and many of the sites were flooding. There were also huge ruts because of the wind and rain.
Although the picnic tables are new, they won't last long; very poor quality. We saw a few staff members, but we couldn't figure out how they know when people are leaving; we never saw anyone come by to check on a site. Also, our neighbor took our fire ring, after a staff member moved it to our site, and set it in an area that was not safe for fires. He went into the woods and took several branches, doused them with lighter fluid, and proceeded to create an inferno. Again, no staff to enforce the rules.
They have a new reservation system and our reservation was 'canceled' three times. (I took care of it the first time around, but it was canceled two more times.) They also didn't have a record of our prepayment, so when we checked in, the person in the office tried to charge us again. (This, too, was rectified rather quickly.)
We did not go to the May Museum, which we understand is a huge attraction. I don't particularly care to look at bugs, so it didn't interest me. We did fish in the supposedly stocked pond. No luck. Daily fishing license is $6 per person. If you catch anything, you are supposed to take it to the office for sizing and recording. We weren't sure how that worked if you caught something after the office closed.
Overall, it was an okay park. Somewhat primitive, lots of full-time residents. The best part is that it is very quiet. We won't stay there again. - SimplyMoBetta

We were last minute guests on a busy summer weekend & got the last site which was a 30 amp pull through on level gravel base with full hookups, cable and EXCELLENT wifi signal and bandwidth. Sites are extremely close together throughout the park and the quality hookups are the only ameneties. Not a park to go to enjoy...a park for an excellent location to tour the areas many attractions...or to stop enroute to somewhere. Good value and nice and helpful staff. Would come again. - Camaraderie

Located right behind an O'Reilly's Parts store. You are on top of each other in a dirt lot. Horrible access. If you have anything larger than a 10 foot camper, you're not going to fit. God forbid you have a vehicle. You might as well keep driving. There are no "pull throughs".
If I were Good Sam, I would be ashamed to represent them.
Stay at the Walmart or keep driving. - Tmj

This is a no-frills, gravel parking lot with full hookups. No pool, spa, or playground. "Sharp" gravel (neighbor's dogs refused to walk on it). Tight sites, no landscaping but some trees, loud road noise from US-24 (adjacent), camp host very personable. Stayed 2 weeks so got weekly discount (about $32 per day). Good for a day-or-two stopover, entry/exit/parking challenging for big rigs. Didn't use restrooms/showers. - StephenK

Just gets better every year; they have improved the WIFI, some heavy rains which drained fast and zero mud. Lots of Deer. They are working hard to increase the number of sites with another terrace. Sites are level clean and huge. Will be back next year; one of the best RV parks period. - tazman1953

We previously stayed at Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort on our way to California. It was such an amazing place, we decided to stay again on our way back to Alabama. It was even more delightful than the first time.
The staff is so friendly, the park is absolutely gorgeous and I have already made reservations to stay there in June and August of next year.
The laundry room is modern and spacy; the grounds are immaculate and the store is well stocked.
Each site is very large and lined with beautiful Colorado rock.
They have an ice cream social every Sat. night and complimentary donuts and coffee Sun. morning.
I would recommend this campground to anyone who is passing through Colorado.
We are looking forward to enjoying the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and the quiet, serene atmosphere of Mountaindale. - fdr

There's a lot to like about this location. Most of the campground is red gravel, tightly compacted to eliminate dust and provide an 'almost concrete' surface, although better looking. Due to some late scheduling we had to move to three different sites for three nights. Each site was spacious with easy access and an escort was quickly provided. Trees are trimmed so as not to get in the way, yet provide privacy and shade. WiFi actually worked, although typically slow. To give you some idea of the attention to detail in this campground, the roads are lined with little street lights about three feet high. Normally dim, when motion is detected they become much brighter for a few minutes. Nice touch!
If I have a complaint, not sure that I do, it's the staff repeatedly telling me how great it is at Mountaindale. When I was in business it was the customer that decided, not the employees! Location is a relatively secluded twenty five minute ride from Colorado Springs. - GaryM2

We used this park as a temporary one night stay to find another park in the Colorado Springs area for a week's stay. Its an older park that has seen better days. The grounds are overgrown with weeds, the lighting is for the most part, not functioning. Lots of permanent trailers and residents. The trash dumpsters were overflowing. Located close to the airport with the plane noise very noticeable. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and understanding. AT&T and Verizon worked fine. The advertised WiFi was non existent. The hookups were OK but the sites were very narrow. Might be an OK park for a 1 night enroute stay, but only if you couldn't find something else. - yachtjockey

Stayed here for 9 weeks at the monthly rate of $450, and a weekly rate of $183. I read the other reviews and can't deny them, however I found the park OK or we wouldn't have stayed as long as we did. It's not that they don't try to keep up the park, because their frequently working. Everyone has a different standard. The owner and help are very friendly and helpful. If you compare this park to the ones on the west side of town, it's not too bad. Would stay here again. - knhllh

We stayed at this park because it was convenient to family members in the area. Park was not well maintained and sites were very close together. It backs up to Peterson AFB and you hear taps, retreat and revielle each day. While it did not bother us, our neighbors complained about it. Appeared to cater to permanent campers. We would only stay here again if we are visiting the same family in Colorado Springs. - Lynnea & Jim
