This KOA makes a good impression from check-in by the smiling, eager to help office staff to the obvious campground improvements underway. The place is clean and well maintained. Although the hot tub was not working, you can look past minor problems. Even the camground's wifi was reasonably fast, even at 8:30 p.m. A bit later I learned why: the campground management has chosen to disable access to YouTube, and Apple store and I assume any other video websites. I can understand limiting downloading or streaming movies but limiting access to YouTube is tantamount to saying wifi is only for email and simple browsing. Most RV travelers today don't just use the internet for email and simple browsing-but that's all they'll do at this campground. Otherwise they'll have to get in their car and go up the hill to the Starbucks. This limitation takes this campground from above average to poor. - PhilB

Decent park with very friendly office staff. Noise is a bit of a problem, given the proximity of the freeway and railroad and (I think) a military gun range. Wifi was almost unusable. The main issue is that many of the spaces need to be re-graveled. Ours was mostly dirt, a pet peeve. - DFlorio

This is a good KOA. The pool was nice. We were there for a rally and had a good time. There was a meeting room for our dinners and meetings. We parked by the creek and it was beautiful. - Reb Kitt

This is totally a big rig friendly state park. The reservation system was a little confusing. One of the nicest state park campgrounds we've ever seen. We camped in October mid week and the campground was full every night. Plenty of spaces for a large RV. Beautiful view out the window, one side the valley and the other side, the mountains. Suggest you make a reservation if you can. We would come back!!! - OnTheRoadLife

Beautiful park with beautiful views in a foothills setting. Many, many hiking trails. Close to Ft. Carson, and Colorado Springs. We stayed two weeks and could have stayed longer if it was allowed. - Colorado Vagabond

One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at! The park is just below Cheyenne Mountain and many of the sites have a beautiful view of Colorado Springs and/or Fort Carson. We even heard taps and reveille from the fort each day. The sites have a concrete pad as well as a tent pad and a gravel picnic area. All of the utilities are in great shape. Lots of trails within the park. Decent Verizon and ATT signals. They do charge a daily fee along with the camping fee but if you are going to be staying in Colorado State Parks enough to make it worthwhile, you can purchase an annual pass so you don't have to pay the daily fee. - lorangl

Stayed 5 days at this park as we could not get in a nearby State Park. We used this park as a home base to do day trips to nearby attractions. Sites a little unlevel but managable. Interior roads dusty. - RV Frank

We expected so much more given the price we paid. This is a primitive campground with rutted dirt roads and many uneven sites. We were in a long pull-through site with full hook ups. The length of the site allowed us to keep our car trailer attached but the outdoor living area was narrow and completely unusable. It was uneven and littered with gopher holes and covered with goat heads (puncturevine). The picnic table for our site was about 4 ft from our neighbor's sewer connection. Moving it farther away would position it too close to the dirt road. The distances to the hook-ups were ridiculous. Because there was only one pedestal for two sites, we had to run our electric cord under the rig. The distance to the water hook-up was acceptable but we had to use two 20ft sewer hoses to reach the sewer connection because it was at the far back end of the site (and across our neighbor's outdoor living area). Very poor planning given this was a pull-through site. This campground could be so much more with a few strategic improvements. Cannot recommend this park and will not stay here again. - DreamstoGoals

Park is in a good location, close to places to see and things to do. The work-campers keep the restrooms and laundry room very clean. No hesitation using any of the facilities.
The park is very run down. The road into the park is asphalt and dirt and has speed bumps in turns and across the road at an angle. The roadways are dirt and very little gravel and are terribly rutted.
We had a "deluxe" site, which means you get two of their old sites put together. Your picnic table is on the other "site" and away from your coach and awning. The sites are not level and, when you step out of your coach, you have to move up hill out of the parking area. Because it was dirt, we had our mat out but, it was so steep that our older dog kept sliding down off the mat and my husband I slipped all the time.
The site was a "pull thru" but was very steep on the "in" side so that you had to drive down a bump to get into the site. When you pulled out, you went down over another steep bump that was rutted and rocky. Anything not tied down goes flying.
They have a play area with swings, a teeter-totter and tires to climb on but, the park and common area are not flat (like it's been plowed up) and what greenery is there is all weeds.
This might be an okay value if they charged $30 for the "deluxe" sites, but not at close to $50.
They did have Internet access, but by 8 a.m. it's too slow to use.
We would definitely NOT stay here again. - JB8

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

Two nights of no sleep! Between the road noise and the Business right next to our site there was no sleep. Gravel road, hookups were in good shape. The manager was a nice guy. Several long term occupants. - Edwards-JV

As others have said, it is basically a gravel parking lot with FHU. No ambiance and no space between rigs. WiFi was unusable. Unfortunately this is all we could find with space for the time we were here visiting family. We will not stay here again. - Stormtrooper

Warning! Drive the extra miles.
Spots are next to each other; your door opens to the next Rv. The slide outs are almost touching. Gravel parking lot next to busy highway. The wifi does not work; office tells u to keep trying. Cable is working.
Not worth the $$. If the driver is not an excellent driver, you won't get in. Do not recommend. - Campground Review

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 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

We were lucky to get an end spot. We're in a big rig and space was adequate; however, the picnic table is next to the neighbor's slide outs and sewer hookups. We really didn't want to sit outside. Sites are tight and close. Very friendly gentleman guided us to spot and helped park which they probably have to do to get some RV into the spaces. We would probably look somewhere else before coming back here. Wi-if was terrible and couldn't even use it. - OnTheRoadLife

We were fortunate to have reserved an executive pull thru site, which we found to meet our needs very nicely. These eight sites have a flat, concrete pad and concrete patio, picnic table, landscaping and are spaced nicely. The rest of the RV park didn't look nearly as nice, with gravel sites, tight spacing and no landscaping. The RV park is wedged between Old Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs right on Business 24, so it's busy and probably not the best area of town. As mentioned in the previous review, there is a mobile home park next door that is very run down, but it isn't visible unless you walk out of the park. The utilities worked fine although the water pressure seemed very low. The registration queue is spacious and staff was fine. The interior roads are a bit tight. The RV park is a mix of everything from tent camping to park models, cabins and a small motel unit. It is a great location, with Garden of the Gods and the Pike's Peak cog train five minutes away. The restrooms were nice and kept clean. - VegasVagabonds

A lot of negative reviews but our complaints are minor. Online reservation and payment was easy, no drama. Showed up, I was expected, was told to wait in my RV and somebody would come show me to my site. Waited 10 minutes, nobody came, went and found it for myself. Sites are close, even in the premium sites, but adequate for an overnight. Sites are level, well maintained and getting in/out no problem. I would stay here again without hesitation. - JimJLampasas
