Sites were very close but we had room for our slides and awnings. Picnic table was on a concrete patio but, due to the narrowness of the sites, it was impossible to avoid driving over the patios and most of them were broken up to some extent. The entire park was sand and, as mentioned in other reviews, there was no place with grass to walk the dogs without going outside the park onto the bike/hiking path. The laundry was very nice with 6 each washers and dryers, all in good working condition and clean. They picked up trash at the site every morning or it could be carried to the dumpster at the entrance. No fires are permitted but there is a grill stand at each site. We had to unhook our truck and parallel park behind the camper. They make a point of raking and cleaning each site when someone pulls out. The homeless people who hang out at the entrance to the park are careful not to enter park property so there's not much the park can do about them. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Previous reviews spot on. Cramped sites, clean and shaded, cracked and disintegrating concrete slab for picnic table. Entire park small gravel and dirt, mud and puddles when it rains. No place in park to walk dogs. Have to go outside of park to concrete walkway with grassy sides. Homeless folks hang around outside park. Didn't see any signs of security. Owner was very nice and friendly. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park would rate an excellent for location only. It is convenient to many attractions. But the place itself is not very appealing. There are multiple transients that hang out just outside the gate and near the fast food restaurants at entrance. Some of them live under the bridge and along the creek. The laundry facilities rate only a satisfactory. The showers and restrooms are not acceptable. In both men's showers and one of the women's showers, you could not control the water temperature and it was HOT. In the other ladies bathroom, there was no place to hang your clothing except inside the shower stall. So I put my clothing inside a kitchen trash bag and hung it in the shower. Many sites are long term residents. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is very overpriced for what you will experience. The man running it in the office is disrespectful, and has no customer service skill. The park is 60 percent filled with full timers smoking everywhere nonstop. The full timers have children there that they allow to run around on strangers rv sections and throw things at rv's. Loud music at night. Rules not enforced except by the overzealous use of " no" signs. They do not stock the bathrooms with paper towels. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to Manitou Springs and historic district of Colorado Springs, fast food, walgreens and Safeway. Great location! Don't trust Google maps to get you into park. Turn into park on road BETWEEN Taco Bell and McDonalds.

Do not expect this to look like a campground. If I expected that, my rating would be a 2. I give it a 5 because it provides a clean and tidy place to stay if you're site seeking or short duration business trip. Sites are nearly on top of one another--neighbor's sewer line is right next to our picnic/grill spot, and actually on our space. There is hardly room for vehicles and the layout makes for some interesting maneuvering to get around vehicles. Their awning is over top of their neighbor's on the other side. The park however, is clean, restrooms adequate, and the proprietor is helpful and accommodating. Most sites seem to have cement pads for the table. And the area is pretty well shaded with nice trees. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is not a campground, it is a mobile home park. Mostly permanent residents. I was disappointed in park and wanted to leave early. They would not give a refund even though the park was not as advertised. It was quiet and reasonably clean, but I would not stay here again. My RV space was small and cramped.

Rate reflects Good Sam. We've stayed here 3 years in a row and find the location perfect. Just a few miles from Manitou Springs, close to Old Colorado City and within a few miles of all to do in Colorado Springs. Grocery store is up the street. The park is older and there are some full time residents but they are friendly and helpful. The staff is always working on the property. They even rake the gravel on the sites after someone leaves. The sites are level, DirecTV was good where we were since there were no trees and Verizon air card worked well. There's not a lot of places to walk the dog in the park but there is a trail right outside the gate. Not a fancy park but the location and price are right for the area. We will come back again next year. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Paved road. Gravel sites. More permanent residents than not. Some very old run down RV units. Backs to a park that has homeless people there. Many people walking through that look rough. Our neighbor had his BBQ grill stolen. We were told by two different people that to lock up anything you wanted to keep. No security Park next to busy street that you get traffic noise from. Hard to get in/out of with our 40ft 5th wheel. Park does not look clean but that could be due to the dry conditions. Will not stay here again, to many other RV parks to choose from in the area. People in the office were nice. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

OK park. Nothing fancy but very liveable. Previous comments apply here as well. Good central location, right between Taco Bell and McDonalds! I think rate a little high for this type of park. Should be $25-$30 dollars but rates have gone up everyplace this year. I would stay here again. We camped at Fountain Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
