I would go back to this campground every year if I could! The sites are spacious but tricky to park: the campground crew was incredibly helpful. There is not a lot of activities for kids, but we spent a lot of time doing local activities. The grounds are all rock, which isn't the greatest for bike riding. This is a great place for a quiet getaway and relaxing. We saw lots of hummingbirds and the setting is beautiful. - threeunderfour

This is a great campground. We got the only site available, and it turned out to be a gem. Back-in, shaded, level, with great wi fi and cable reception, but I understand that your reception on both these depends on where you are located. Staff expertly backed us in. Everything was all gravel. Small workout room with 2 ellipticals and 1 treadmill, but a new, larger facility will be open next year. Many people live here full time or most of the summer, so overnight spaces are harder to get. Ice cream social on Saturday night and breakfast waffle bar with all the trimmings on Sunday morning. Park is out in the country, and there are gravel trucks going back and forth on the road to a nearby quarry, which does stir up some dust, but the trucks do stop at night. Park is about equal distance between Colorado Springs and Canon City--some 20 miles to both. Looks like they are building a new bathhouse. Laundry spacious and nice. No pool but the map showed a hot tub, which we did not see. Utilities all good. This is a great place to kick back and relax. We would love to come back. - Seabreeze Texas

This is the best RV Park in Colorado Springs. But that is because the other parks are more or less trailer parks for full time residents with travel trailers or fifth wheels. This in large part due the extensive military presence in Colorado Springs.
The staff is very helpful and friendly but do not enforce the 5 mph speed limit so if you are in the font row of the main driveway (sites 1-8 or 9-16) every time a registering camper coming in or sewer truck, FedEx, UPS, or other delivery truck goes by a dust cloud from the red gravel covers your car and RV. The worst violators are the campground employees who go up and down the main driveway 20 mph in Golf carts, skidsteers, and utility vehicles all day. The park has their water delivered so you cannot wash your rig unless you use their mobile wash guy who has a contract with the park.
The park wireless depending on where you are is very good. They have a signal extender for cell phones so if you want to make a Verizon call you can if you are near the office where the tower is.
Cable TV was adequate, depending on which site you are on. I moved once and had a good signal on one site and grainy on another.
Sites 1-7 are so narrow if you have slides on both sides you could be overhanging the site next to you and the sewer connections are in the next site in the front so your neighbors sewer connection is 3 feet from your front door on your site.
Other sites are very wide and spacious. - HolyMackrelAndy

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

This is our first visit and I hope many more. We loved this park. Large camp spaces, great fire pit and picnic tables and beautiful views. Shower and laundry very clean. You will need quarters for the showers. - Kwanyen

This is an absolutely first-rate park, that lives up to its high reviews. We stayed three nights in site #10 with full hook-ups. The park is right off CO-115, with easy access north into Colorado Springs and all that it offers.
This park opened in 2006 so all of the facilities are brand new. There are restrooms in the camping loops and then pay showers, a laundromat, and a small store with ice, souvenirs, etc. at the nearby Camper Services Center. There are about a dozen trails all around the park with nice views and excellent chances to see wildlife.
The sites are carved into the side of Cheyenne Mountain which provides views overlooking Colorado Springs and Fort Carson. We had full LTE cell reception and clear skies for the satellite. However, there is no shade at all.
Please note that in addition to the nightly rate, there is a $10 online reservation fee and a $7/day vehicle fee. Reservations well in advance are highly recommended.
This is one of the best parks we've ever stayed at. It is an excellent base camp for exploring Colorado Springs. We would definitely return. - texasAUtiger

We loved this state park. We had a beautiful view of Colorado Springs below, and the best part was having a view of all the July 4th fireworks going on around the city during the holiday weekend. Our site was spacious and had some privacy. There are many hiking and biking trails all through the park which were very nice. Verizon 4G coverage there was good. The only reason I knock off any stars for this and every other CO state park is because of the ridiculous $10 reservation fee and the fact that you have to pay the $7/day park entrance fee on top of the campground fee. We travel full-time and this is the only state so far that we have been to that makes you pay an entrance fee in addition to the campground fee. Since we are traveling around Colorado for a couple of months it made sense for us to buy the CO state parks annual pass for $70, but it makes staying at CO state parks a lot more expensive than other states. We are from Florida, and FL state parks do NOT make you pay the entrance fee on top of the campground fee to camp there. - Love2Camp777

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

It's on the side of hill, over looking Colorado Springs: a beautiful view. We stayed 2 nights, enjoyed the 2 Air Museum's, Garden of the God's and old town Colorado Springs. The sites were truly cliff hangers, right up to edge. So worth the view!! Plenty of things to do, places to eat and shop nearby. - Jim and Me

A very nice park built into the side of a mountain. Downtown Colorado Springs is the view from most sites to the east and the mountains to the west. You are able to see Garden of the Gods from the campground. This park is both Passport America and Good Sam. Two very friendly sisters run the park. All sites are gravel on 3 tiers. The park has a large percentage of permanent residents. Easy satellite reception available at all sites. Good phone signals in all parts of the park.
We would return to this park. - Workamper04

Hardly a resort. Storage and full time trailer park is more correct.. However for a night stop it is fine. Nice views of the city....we pulled straight in. Staff extremely polite and friendly. A difficult entry and exit as the street was torn up with pot holes big enough to fall into but crew there making repairs. Otherwise it's no big deal. Old town Colorado Springs very close as is downtown but we just sat in the front of our coach and enjoyed the view. - Bobcat1

This is a residential mobile home park for people down on their luck, and not an RV park in the sense that most travelers expect. I don't even know where to start. The bathrooms lack paper towels and hand soap, and one one occasion, toilet paper. There's a sort of encampment of homeless people just outside the park, and when walking the dog on the trail behind the park, they are all around. At the Taco Bell near the park entrance a couple with cardboard signs sought food and money. The full-time park residents are not always so friendly, and many of their rigs are sinking into the ground and are in states of disrepair. Aesthetically speaking, it's just NOT a nice park, and I can't say that I felt particularly safe there, either. - RV-Grey

People rate this campsite for what it is not. It is not a campsite in the woods with pine trees. This site was clean and nicely shaded. Dirt roads with dirt sites, all well maintained. Picnic table on concrete slab. Had no problem getting my 35' rig in a spot, with room to park my truck in front or back. It is close to the highway, so there is road noise. However, it is also short walk to McDonald's, Taco Bell, a couple other places. Ruby's BBQ across the highway. There is a walking path and creek that runs along the outside of the grounds. Our site was shaded with large shade trees. It worked quite well for us as a base camp while we went other places. Price was reasonable and pets are welcome. It was a nice quiet place to get away from home and electronics. - Burdoglovr

Park staff was friendly and led us to our site and helped us park. They needed to, because sites were extremely tightly packed. Mostly longterm, who had the bigger and shaded sites. Sites were level. Rate was weekly.
Centrally located thus quite a bit of road noise. Interior streets were terrible and entrance was over a narrow bridge. Laundry was good. - daviputnam

Superlatives barely begin begin to describe this campground. For some years now Golden Eagle has firmly established itself as one our three favorites in the entire U.S.A. With almost 1,000 acres of virtual wilderness on the East Slope of the Rocky Mountains just south of Colorado Springs this place has everything for a serious camper. Miles of hiking trails, incredible wildlife, incomparable views and spectacular scenery. You can hike up a trail and see at least 75 miles. At night you can watch the lights of Colorado Springs twinkle in the distance. The people who run this campground are friendly, reliable and dedicated to making your stay comfortable. The bathrooms are really clean and sanitary. Associated with the park is the May Natural History Museum which is at the bottom of the hill you'll drive up to reach the campground. The Museum houses the largest privately owned insect collection in North America and at $6.00 for adults to visit it is well worth a visit. The incredible diversity of nature is on display there and wonderful to view. The sun rises from the great plains to the east and sets behind the mountains to the west. Simply an incredible place. I love camping at this place. Can't recommend it highly enough. If you want perfectly level sites on concrete slabs and cable TV you may not be happy, but if you love wilderness, spectacular views, the fresh smell of pine trees and sage and lots of wildlife, Golden Eagle is really hard to beat. - Jim C.

Beautiful park! A little more primitive with dirt roads, but with full hookups, clean bath houses and laundry. Two private ponds to fish in and can pay campground fee of $6.00 instead of state fee. Staff is very welcoming and helpful! Will stay here again and again! - chefb1969

Beautiful and very clean campground surrounded by stunning mountains, river and many hiking and bike trails. Staff very friendly and respectful. 1st week we stayed in a very big lot with full hook-ups. Quiet and peaceful. 2nd week, the campground was fully booked, owner offered us to boon dock in a secret place that I will call "our little paradise." Lots of cute rabbits, fox, deer...and apparently bears that we did not see. A cute lake where you can fish to. We will definitely return! - Merci_la_vie

Nice park, crazy busy, they need to get a WiFi system that works. I would be on and then it would disconnect, it would take up to 20 minutes to reconnect. Very slow for as spread out and for as many spaces they have. I would have given it a higher score but the WiFi was poor. Staff was great, everything else worked. - tazman1953

An RV resort this is definitely not. The spaces are mostly gravel, short, tight, and unlevel. I had to use 3 "lego" block per tire on my driver side to get my 5th wheel level. Then I had to unhook and park to the side so my neighbor could park his toad and not be in the road. It is, however, the most big rig friendly of the local parks (I checked out the other parks and they didn't have pull thrus and where even tighter). The hook-ups where all properly placed and easy to hook up too. The roads are tight but navigatable and paved. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is also 24 hour security. The dog park is well fenced and gravel. The bathrooms where clean, however I did not check out or use the showers. There is plenty of shade and the park is fairly quiet. There is good bbq served in the evening and pancake breakfast on Sunday mornings. It is a decent park that is convient to the sites, not someplace I would stay at regularly. - Msubulldawgnwaco

Park was centrally located near Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. Near lots of attractions which was nice. A little tricky getting in and out of for a big rig with a tow, but doable. Downside about location is that it seems to be in the heart of marijuana central. Many dispensaries nearby. Can smell the weed nightly throughout the park. I am not sure if this is a campground phenomena or a Colorado issue, but it was off-putting to us. The sites were not terribly level. Neighbors sewer, water and electric run through your site as well. Sometimes downwind this smelled too. Sites were all gravel. No firepits but picnic table included. Despite the average sites, the view was spectacular. Staff was generally nice. There was one staff member that was grouchy and even asked my 17 year old daughter if she 'smoked'. Facilities were just ok. Seemed that the nicer shower house was always closed for cleaning. Bathhouses were average, but high use so I was not expecting much. WIFI was nonexistent, also not a surprise with the high numbers of users. There was a nice park and two pools for the kids. But with all the outdoor activities nearby, we did not utilize them much. There was dinner and breakfast served on various days at the campground. It looked delicious, but we never tried it out. We were too busy sightseeing. Overall, the campground's highlight is the location. Tons to do in the area. I would consider staying again, but may look elsewhere first and use this place as a fall back option. - mm1407
