These people know how to do a first class CG! Pea gravel roads and sites. On site office/store is well stocked with munchies and dry goods that you might have run out of. Nice laundry, playground, and immaculacy landscaped high dessert style. No problems with power or water. I was going to take some pictures to post here, but the pictures and video on their website would do a better job of showing the amenities and facilities. I opted for a crescent shaped pull thru that had sufficient trees to provide afternoon shade, but I did have to put out my external sat antenna a few feet from the rig. But there are lots more nice sites to choose from where satellite signals aren't blocked. Their website page will allow you to click on a site and see photos of it which takes the guessing out of the selection process. Again, that's first class. Nice rec/computer/game room. Nightly rate may be a bit high for some, but you get what you pay for. I usually stay at another nice CG in the Colorado Springs area, but this one will be the replacement from now on. My only negative, which is not in the control of the CG, is that Verizon cell signal was almost non existent. - RLM

I think the owners out a lot of work into this park and it shows. Best wireless we have seen, but make sure to ask which wireless your spot should use.
We had to switch sites because while our site was advertised as good satellite, it's only good if your dish is located on the front. That said, the owner was so accommodating! The site we stayed at was double (almost triple) of other sites and this is one site that truly is big rig friendly.
My recommendation would be that when you book your site, be specific about your needs and they will do their best to assign the right spot for you.
There are a few items that impacted the "9" rating instead of a 10: it is extremely far from Colorado Springs proper, no grass whatsoever (tough for dogs, even with a dog run which is dirt), the water pressure was very low, and the lack of cell service. The owners couldn't help the first and last issues but with the latter, it is a known issue and would've helped knowing about it when we booked. There were workarounds with the latter but we spent a couple of hours getting Skype working (wish we actually read these reviews first and we could have set up at our leisure rather than spending it right after driving and setting up). Others in the campground were actually complaining about AT&T when I went in to ask about the same.
Again, it taught us to be very specific about our needs before arriving rather than assuming based on reviews. - Kamnel

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

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

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

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

Old and crouded park but still one of the better in the area. Centrally located to many of the area attractions and once you learn your way around fairly easy to get in or out of with all the tourist traffic in the area that also do not know where or how to get to where they want to be.
Park office staff in great. Maintenance/cleaning staff work hard with the facilities they have.
Rest rooms and showers are limited for a park of this size and the quick turn-around of guests does not allow a lot of time for cleaning, maintenance and repair.
Rest rooms are limited and old and need repair and cleaned more than once a day with the amount of use they receive.
Showers do not have benches or shelves and most are limited in hooks to hang clean dry clothes or a place to place eye glasses while in the shower.
Most of the sites are short and narrow with limited parking length for a tow vehicle. Some parking space is available away from your site.
We will return when in the area again. - Bullrider

This park is NOT big rig friendly for sure, and not camper friendly overall. Getting through this park into a site is nerve wracking. Your cable, which doesn't work well anyway, water, electric and sewer hose run right through your neighbor's area and you have to move their table to empty your black water! Most rigs have their wheels off the ground because the sites are so unlevel. I would stay anywhere else than here. - DR Rogers

Really small site for our motorhome. There was a large pick-up next to us that looked like it was under our slide, it was so close. No grass, few flowers, just rock in the site. We had a patio, with table. Price reflects monthly rate, including electric, which is separate. - Chiango
