Campground entrance is confusing and you need to watch the side street adjoining it during entrances and exits. Roads are barely wide enough for our 45' coach, especially since we're towing a car. Be prepared to listen to your neighbors' conversations if your windows are open. Our site had a concrete pad with picnic table but with rigs so close together and the next site's sewer connection right behind our pad we didn't use it. We had to level our air springs to maximum at the front and we were still slightly low in front....BIG step up to our coach step. I don't think we'd stay here again even though it's very close to Old Town & Manitou Springs and not too far from I-25. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Cog Railroad in Manitou Springs was fantastic. We reached the summit at Pike's Peak and the views were amazing. The Air Force Academy is a great place to visit as well as Garden of the Gods

Great park at the entrance to Garden of the Gods. The only drawback we had was we could not request a certain site and once arriving we were placed in the area where the work campers and permanent unites were.
With that being said it was still quiet and safe. They also have a 24 hour security patrol. We would definitely go back. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been coming here for about ten years and have had better visits. I feel like this park is no longer what it was prior to RVC Outdoors. Our site was too off level to level the coach and so was our neighbors. The sites are also too close. We had a reservation and I was in disbelief where they put us with a 43' motorhome. We had a pull thru (laugh) that was long enough for the coach only so the car was parked elsewhere. Even that was worse than it sounds as there isn't a square inch in the whole GC that isn't claimed by someone. Be very careful driving a larger motorhome as the place is loaded with campers taking up needed aisle space with their vehicles. Wifi AND cable was a joke at least at our site. If we were longer than two nights I would have complained. I feel like the rate is also an issue. $70 for an off level, gravel/dirt site, packed in, is too high. But obviously they have no problem filling the CG so others must feel differently. We will certainly return to Colorado Springs but we are done with this CG. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground is located next to Garden of the Gods. Staff very good at check-in. We had a premium pull thru that fit our 37' with tow vehicle parking behind MH. 50 amp, water and sewer very good. Local TV channels very strong. Paved roads to site and parked on a good size gravel site. Site was level with picnic table and pad. They take you to your site. Park has rental cabins so relatives could come spend a couple of days. We would stay again. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good central location for sightseeing in Manito Springs, Garden of the Gods, and Pikes Peak.

This was the second time we have stayed here in a motorhome, tow dolly, and toad. Once in 2014 and again in Oct 2015. Both stays were very nice. The people were very friendly and helpful. The sites were level and shaded and not too tightly spaced. We plan to visit GOG CG every time we come to the Springs.

WiFi was strong and available anytime, we did not use cable. CG was well tended. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Old Town Colorado, Airplane Restaurant, Seven Falls, Air Force Academy, Manitou Springs are all must see sites in the area.

The park has paved roadways and gravel sites. The premium sites are cement. The sites vary in width. Most of the sites are back-in's. Some sites are fine for big rigs but not all sites. The services are all good. The Wifi is up and down. The location is great for visiting the tourist sites around the Colorado Springs. We would camp here again. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It really is a nice facility for exploring thus area. My only complaint is that. as with most private campfounds you are packed in like sardines. We had two small children with us and you wouldn't dare let them outside alone. The traffic, close proximity of others, and steep drainage ditch that ram through our area of the campground made it very unsafe foe small children. That said..the campground was very clean and it appeared the security was very good. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Other than convent to pikes peak etc. I found nothing great about this park. It had cable however it did not work, when I asked why I was told about 3 weeks ago it went out and they just have not repaired it yet. The water faucet was so close to the ground I had to dig a little trench so the regulator would fit. I doubt if I would stay in this park again.

Rate reflects a week's stay. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV. Good Verizon LTE service but AT&T voice and data sporadic at best. Cable available only at the expensive premium sites and little chance of satellite signal if you have a fixed dish. Friendly and helpful staff. Park was full during our stay so advance reservations recommended. Best of the private RV park options in the area. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Traffic can be difficult in Colorado Springs - Follow directions to the park that they send in in reservation email or call ahead.

Great location in Manitou Springs. Huge sign at entrance yet missed it! Easy to go around the block. Turn right on next street. It looks narrow with branch overhangs but you will be fine. BTW, GPSs have park in different locations. Be aware.

Spaces are pretty wide, concrete pad with table. They have pancake breakfast, different BBQ dinners on weekends. Most spaces have shade but ours didn't, but it was no problem. Staff helpful and friendly. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Pikes Peak Cog Train 15 minutes away and a must do. Manitou Springs is very cute, lots of shops and food options. Also has natural hot springs. Visit Garden of the Gods, only 10 minutes away. Pass on the movie at Visitor Ctr. Much to do, so we have planned a return.

We stayed here as part of a group and used their meeting hall on a daily basis. The in-house caterer did our meals, and they were very tasty. The same caterer sold simple meals to the campground from a window as well. Sites are gravel/rock, and the campground did allow us to wash both our rig and our toad (both desperately needed it). Sites were well shaded, level, and spaced somewhat close (like most private campgrounds). Hookups were fine. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and in good repair. The laundry area was also very nice, and their rates were good. Great location to explore the area. You could walk/bike to the Garden of the Gods if so inclined. Access to the campground is a right hand turn off the main drag and then a VERY quick left (like 100' max) into their driveway. Be ready to make your left, and you'll be driving around the block like we did (which was no fun). We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Of course GoG is right there and well worth your time. The highlight for us was the Pikes Peak Cog rail to the top...Stunning and worth every cent.
RESERVE in advance if you want to get on in the summer!

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. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Garden of the Gods RV Resort is close to Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods Park and Colorado Springs with a lot of activities available in each. The towns of Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City have a homeless, hippy problem where people panhandle daily for money. There are a lot of great hiking opportunities in the Staresmore area near Helen Hunt Falls that are definitely worth doing.

This was a very nice, though very crowded and very busy, campground. The restrooms were very clean and well laid out with plenty of water pressure and hot water. There were also plenty of restrooms, which was good because of the number of campers. The sites were close together and for the most part, level. Our site required us to use leveling blocks on one side, but I didn't notice anyone else needing to do so. Thor had a nice size dog park and playground for the multitude of children. If you are looking for a quiet playground with few children, this is not your campground. We very much enjoyed it, though. Wi-Fi signal was strong and easy to connect to. However, bandwidth was way too small and we could not effectively use it. It was free, however. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were guided to our site upon arrival. There was a very nice sitting area in the main building and the laundry facilities looked excellent, even though we did not use them. There was an arcade and a pancake breakfast was an option. The campground was very convenient to Garden of the Gods and we should have planned more than one day just to visit that park, not to mention all of the other places to see on Colorado Springs. We will definitely stay here again when we return. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were in a standard site, which are extremely close together. Basically you park your tow vehicle between your trailer and your neighbor's trailer. The electric and water connections were as expected, but the sewer hookup was under the trailer, requiring me to crawl part way under the trailer to dump the tanks. Our site (and all the standard sites I noticed) were mostly dirt and in need of fresh gravel.

The park was completely full when we were there (over the 4th of July holiday weekend), and the bathrooms were not being cleaned as often as they needed to be. They were usable, but only just.

The sites were somewhat shaded, however, there were quite a few dead limbs in the trees which seemed would be a problem in a heavy wind storm.

I was never able to connect to WiFi and there was only intermittent AT&T cellular coverage (not the park's fault, but something to be aware of).

The Deluxe sites closer to the front of the park had more gravel and had a bit more room. The bathrooms and showers in the front of the park were also in better shape. If we stay at this park again, we will try to stay in one of those sites.

The staff was helpful at checkin and guiding us to our site and getting backed in.

The park is very convenient to Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak, Old Colorado City (good restaurants) and other area attractions. We might stay here again when in the area because of the location. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Manitou Springs is worth visiting and the Heart of Jerusalem middle eastern restaurant was exceptional. The Manitou Cliff Dwellings are interesting. Both Garden of the Gods park (make sure to walk the paved Central Garden Trails) and Pike's Peak are must-see.
