We pulled into the campground without a reservation but were able to get a spot for the night. Office personnel very friendly and helpful and we were escorted to our site. We drive a 45ft MH towing and we were able to get in, around, and out of the park without difficulty. Our site was just barely long enough to keep the car attached but worked out OK. Internal roads and sites gravel/pea stone type of mix. Utilities well placed and worked fine. Sites a bit on the small side but not so much that you feel claustrophobic. Did not use the restrooms or wifi so cannot comment on that. We would return again if in the area. - LvR

Nice park, showers could be better but okay. The restroom and showers are usually very clean after the staff cleans the facilities. Unfortunately there people staying here who try to plug the shower and sink drains. When you come in the morning the place has been totally placed in a shamble. A good camera system might help. Do not buy propane at this camp ground they charge per size of tank. So if you have a 40 pound tank which is half full you will pay the price for an EMPTY tank. Go to the U-Haul dealer in Fountain less then 5 miles from the park. They charge for what you need to top off tank. - HaveToTravel

Very nice park with great amenities. Only reason we gave it an 8 vs 10 is because there is NO SHADE. Being on an exposed plateau in CO means wind - lots and lots of wind, so take that into consideration during summer with no shade trees. Awnings don't stand a chance. The sites are level but with no trees/minimal trees it is very bare and not private. That said - the view east of the plains is fascinating, especially at night with the city lights. Being fairly close to the Springs allowed us to do a lot of day trips -Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, etc. Lastly, be prepared - you are directly by Fort Carson, prepare to wake up to Reveille at 0630 every morning! - Team Lobster

PROS: Clean, hard surface site with good view. CONS: Unreasonable rules: 1. Extra day use fee should be included with camping cost, not an unreasonable extra fee. 2.Would not reserve a site for us for two nights, even though a site was open. We were allowed to stay there only one night. There is a rule that two sites are not reservable, so we checked out and left the area because they couldn't assure us of a site. There were two sites available, but they would not let US reserve one until 2PM. If someone called on the phone one minute prior to our reservation, we could loose our site. The bureaucracy runneth over. - tdrager

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

Very bad gravel lot with FHU's. After getting our site we were told, "swing wide to miss the large tree". As we maneuvered through the jammed park, the very large tree was at the rear of our site and I had to ask a resident to move his car so I could get into the site. I had to stop, disconnect my toad, and then spent 15 minutes maneuvering the MH to get even partially into the site. Shared utilities are not cool. - Buffalochips

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

What a dump. This place needs a complete overhaul. This is not an RV park, it's a parking lot with hookups. The pull thru sites are not really pull thru, they are just spots out in the middle of the lot and you just basically pull in and hope you are in correctly. The sites are made for travel trailers, not modern day RV's. The lady at the front counter, when we checked in, was totally rude and didn't even acknowledge me for several minutes and didn't say hello, welcome, etc. Seemed as if she really didn't want to be there. We had a horrible time getting our 40' fifth wheel into the really small space and had to make sure our slides didn't hit the utility box and water spout. Would not recommend this RV park to anyone unless you have a small travel trailer, then I would be leery of staying here. Lots of clutter, trash, overgrowth, old trailers, etc. Just awful. The pictures online look nothing like the park. Very deceiving. - Texas Girl 79424

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

Our site backed up to an old trashy trailer park. Lots of feral cats running around. No flowers or trees. Pretty barren. Worst part was the cabins which our family were staying in. One had terrible odor of cat urine. Another did not have a sink in the bathroom! Front desk people were not very responsive. Not very nice accommodations for the high price we paid. - mikesylvia

Older park with small roads and access. Lots of full timers. Not a bad site with pull thru but very tight with limited parking. The restrooms were good even though older. Verizon worked well and TV over the air. Not great for satellite, but didn't need it considering we had rabbit ears. Good for going to state parks and town just one block over. Good propane one block over and a very good repair shop. - FrancisandRenee

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

Very quiet, secluded camp with a wonderful view of Garden of the Gods. Amenities limited and owner not very friendly/helpful but nonetheless a pleasant place to stay. - Traveling On
