The price reflects a weekly rate. The sites were very tight but spacious enough. They don't allow dog fences and that was a disappointment but they do have a very nice off-leash dog park. The park is putting in some new sites that appear to be larger so we will stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to restaurants and shopping in old Historic Colorado Springs and in Manitou Springs. Close to many attractions like Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods.

I have to agree this park is a little over priced for what you get, sites are not level and if you are on satellite tons of trees are in the way no matter what they tell you. Needed work done on our unit and their "recommended" mobile service person would have been better off letting the repair stay broken. Tight turns to get around, they have to escort you. Front office people tell you one thing to get you out the door but don't follow up. We are not going back. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground. Clean, neat and friendly staff. Sites are very close together but all the campgrounds in the area are. We had a back in site and had to park our car beside our RV which took up over half the site. Water pressure is good. Our campsite was nice pea gravel type stuff while some were red dusty dirt which got all over our dogs and created a mess, but that's OK. They did have a dog park otherwise not many places for you dogs to potty. We would choose this campground again. Oh, be sure to use the directions on the web site or you turn into a residential section. Park is close to lots of things. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall, it is a nice park but pricey for what you get - probably because of the location. It is very close to the Garden of the Gods park and near lots of nice shops and the railway to Pikes Peak. The roads are a little tight but doable. The site was a pull through site but not very level, but we were able to level using the jacks. There are lots of trees so we could not use the satellite dish on the roof. The restrooms were clean but they are old and need upgrading. The people at the office were very nice. A couple of nights a week they had BBQ dinners but we did not have the chance to try them. The internet was very slow and the cable TV was minimal but it worked well. There was a gate out to a very nice walking path that went into town. They have a nice off leash dog area. If I wanted to see this location again, I would come to this campground.

Resort camping with amenities - 2 laundry rooms, 2 pools, afternoon snack bar, catered breakfasts and dinner. One night a man with his electric piano sang a variety of songs. The red gravel/dirt roads and campsites are smooth and well kept. No grass. As is rarely rains, mud is not a trouble. Most sites seemed level. Edged with trees, the campsites are wide enough for your awing and also the provided picnic table place on a concrete slab/patio. Good Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We will return. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Previous reviews about tight turns are correct, but it was manageable. Overall, this is a nice spot. We were unable to level automatically on this site due to too much slope, but we were able to get reasonably level. We could live with it for 4 days. Some sites are level, we just weren't given one. We are a big rig and were able to negotiate all turns. The surface is coarse gravel and is very hard and stable. The sewer connections are sometimes distant from the rig, but again, manageable. Bike path is immediately adjacent to park. Great location central to many activities. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is way over priced for what you get. We expected at least a 4 star campground for $43.00 a night. Some sites are up to $59.00. We had to wait about 10 minutes for the parking attendant to lead us to our campsite. The campsites are gravel, and not very level, although the roads are paved. There is a small cement patio at each site. Staff was not all that friendly. Rear of our MH was 2 feet from neighbor rv behind us. Wifi service was extremely slow, had to revert back to our hotspot. Pool was warm but not very clean. Highway noise was moderate. Next time we look for another campground. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was big and right next to a wonderful hiking trail system. Our spot was spacious but we had to back down a lane to get into it. Luckily my husband is good at backing straight. Showers were tight but clean. Had visits from deer right outside our door which had the dog excited. Did not use the dog park, took ours on the paved trails next to the park. Seemed to have a nice play area. It's close to great activities around Colorado Springs. Would stay here over the one nearer our activity. Quiet and peaceful.

First, the rate varies depending on the type of site you choose and the number of people staying. We had a very basic RV site with 2 adults and 3 kids. Definitely not a bargain campground. As previous reviewers have said this is an incredibly cramped campground. I puzzled over this for a few days, until I realized that the entire nearby city of Manitou Springs is similarly cramped -- parking, buildings, street lanes are all very tight. Then I realized that the area is a water drainage area for Pike's Peak -- the streets of Manitou Springs are lined with warnings about what to do when you hear the Flash Flood warning sirens, and we saw more than one storefront sandbagged against flooding after a small rainshower. So, I think that the cramped conditions at the campground are less the fault of the management, and rather a result of simple geography. If you want more room, I suggest you find a place a little further east/closer to Colorado Springs. Getting the trailer into the campsite wasn't all that bad, though. The campground actually won't ALLOW you to do it yourself -- you have to have the help of one of their staffers, who will help guide you into your site. I wish we had the same help on leaving, though, because we scraped the side of our trailer while making a turn to exit the park! Also, finding space to park a regular vehicle was very difficult, too. Possibly the most problematic portion of our stay. Amenities: clean bathhouses, laundry, small playgrounds, heated outdoor pools, breakfast available for a charge. Wi-Fi not excellent, but they have 4 different Wi-Fi systems, so I always found one with enough bandwidth to get email (they ask you not to do any streaming). Overall, decent for the area, but next time we'll choose a different part of the city. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very clean and well maintained. The location is perfect for activities in either Manitou Springs or Colorado Springs. There is a bike and walking trail just adjacent to the RV park. The only negative is the sites are a little small and close together but pretty typical for most RV parks. The best feature was the beautiful big pool kept a comfortable 87 degrees.

We stayed here for four nights. We chose the executive pull-through because of the pictures on the web site. How disappointed we were. We were at site #1 and it was nothing like the picture. Mud and water everywhere. Our RV was a mess by the time we left. Will look for another park for our next visit to Colorado Springs. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The good: nice, dark, quiet campground if you don't mind a bit of road noise. The bad: Not worth what they charge. Pool was slightly dirty, hot tub was empty with parts on order. Neighbor complained about low voltage from 30A connection, but I did not verify with a multimeter. Crowded campground. Bathrooms were clean, but had an odor, and humid like a rainforest. All in all, kind of disappointed. Stayed here last year, seems to have slipped a little. Going to try a different place next time. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place. Near everything. Staff was friendly. Gave us a late checkout so we could attend the bike race. Spaces are tight so if you sit out you are very close to the neighbor's hookups, but there is so much to do in the area that may not be an issue.

Nice park but.... Sewer connections oddly placed, in many cases closer to the next site than yours, in some cases where they had to be stepped over to reach your rig. Many of the turns in and out of sites and around the park were very tight and were somewhat challenging. If your RV drivers license came from WalMart, DON"T come here. We would stay here again.

The place was very clean with great amenities. Several pools, nice walking paths, friendly staff, mostly level spots, good utilities. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is because the spaces are very close together. Everything else about the place however was at 10/10 We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.
