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

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

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

This is one of the many state parks in Colorado and relatively new. All sites are large paved with complete hook-ups, fire pit/grill, additional outside water, metal rubber coated picnic tables/benches. Situated on Cheyenne Mountain with magnificent views of the Colorado Springs area...especially at night. Abundance of wildlife, walking/hiking trails. Numerous bathroom facilities which are very clean and well maintained. - Dr Dan L Golden

Great park and a great value for your money. Big thing is to remember that you will be charged a $7 per day (expires at 12 pm the next day) fee to use the park, make sure you pay at the visitors center or, if after hours, use the self pay station. Pads were concrete and level, all hookups were easy, and the picnic area and fire pit were great. We had a wonderful view of Colorado Springs and it was very easy to get on and off I-25 to all the attractions northwest of the city (Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Pikes Peak Cog Railway were all only about 20 minutes away). AT&T signal was strong. If you have a dog that you like to take on hikes be aware that they are not allowed on trails, kind of a bummer but the other benefits of this park outweighed this negative. Don't be nervous about the bear and other wildlife signs, just be smart with your food and all will be just fine, we had zero issues. - Ian B

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

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

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

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

As others have said, all sites are extremely small (we have seen none smaller in the lower 48), and probably in violation of the local fire code. Fortunately, other visitors were very cooperative and reasonably considerate with parking vehicles and rigs. Of course it only takes on Jerk to mess things up. Convenient location is really the only attribute of this park. - skigoldsboro

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

Two bikes were stolen during the night from our locked rack. The campground is located in a rough neighborhood next to a run down trailer park. Thieves are coming over the fences and stealing at will. Management is aware there is an ongoing problem but has not adequately responded to the challenge. They refunded our camping fees but we will not be back. - Gordon52

We did not have a great experience. Very tight navigating the road to get to our site. Keep in mind we have a '45 coach. Our site was a pull through, no executives sites were available. Our front step was 18" high on top of wood and digging out the back tired to finally get it level. Very close to each other in a big rig. The office closes at 4:30 when the park is full?! Lot is people trying to checking in after hours. Staff running around in golf carts were very nice and tried to help.
We could not pull forward to leave due to trees, we had to back out of our pull through. - Karens BAM

We stayed at GotG RV resort for two weeks in August 2016. Our site was gravel, not very level, but satisfactory. The park is larger than most in the area with larger spaces than other parks appear to have. It is not truly an RV resort as there are numerous camper types from small travel trailers to big class A rigs. Lots of seasonal campers and some short term campers. The park borders the Midland Trail which nice to walk or use for some exercise. The park is well located to lots of activities in the area. - OurNextStage
