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

Regular spots are tight, premium sites have more room and are nicely landscaped. Easy to get into from I25, but highway and Train noise are a bit loud. Mud holes on spot were not filled when asked. Wifi is poor. - acadiandave

We stayed here because we attended a rally here. The park is OK and the staff was friendly. Electric voltage and water pressure were good. Wifi was very spotty - usually could not get on (probably becasue too many other campers were trying to use it). The main reason for rating the park only a "5" was the proximity to I-25. Just too noisy starting at 5 AM. It is convenient to Colorado Springs and all of the activities there. Site was gravel but level. - rockfarmer

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

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

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

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

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

It's very hard to find a spot in this area during vacation time. I was very happy to find this one for a few days. The staff was very friendly. My setup with rig and trailer is 65ft long so they assigned me a site that long. After arriving I discovered the site utilities were in the very back and I had to build an extension cord for electric and buy an additional water and sewer hose. That cost me $120 but I am now prepared for next time. The exceptional thing that occurred was the day I was supposed to leave, so another party could come in, I had a mechanical failure that prevented me from putting in my slides or lowering the jacks. The manager was very understanding as I tried to fix the issue and at the same time find a mobile RV mech. The manager worked very hard to shuffle some people to find a spot for the incoming party and gave me another 24 hours to get the issue fixed. With the extra 24 hrs, I was able to find and fix the problem myself, which saved me about $300! Thank you!!! Yes, this is a parking lot for convenience, not a destination park and I knew that going in. But it is quiet enough and safe. Everyone was very friendly and nice. - startech

Sites are soooo small. VERY tight to even pull in. Sharing water with your neighbor. NO WIFI. I asked why I couldn't log in. She said,"Too many people." False advertising if you can't use it! - KarenE85

We understood when reserving the site that this is not a resort. But we did not expect such a small, jammed parking lot. The website pictures show some trees and nice motorhomes. There are very few of either. We actually had to ask the family next to our site to roll up their outdoor rug so we could park! The sites are that tight! I'll say that our site was somewhat level with full hookups. However, the "WIFI available throughout the park" is not true. At check-in we were given a disclaimer that they were not responsible for the WiFi working and that it is shut down at times for maintenance. We believe that is just their way of advertising good service without providing even poor service! There are also several older trailers that appear to live here full time. It just doesn't feel like a safe place to stay. We will NOT stay here again. - chefb1969

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

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
