great location for seeing the area. they have free shuttle buses that stop right beside the campground, great service from the city. It did have tight spots, very doable, not lots of room for truck when unhooked, but worked fine. Staff was great. - joronallen

Small park in town with narrow back-in sites. Don't worry, the guidance you get when backing-in is excellent!
Friendly staff checking you in. Clean showers and (small) restrooms. Six washers and dryers, standard pricing. Park is well maintained, clean and quit.
One big disadvantage: the park has no Wi-Fi. Maybe that is of less importance when you are an US-citizen with 3G/4G or hotspot-connection, but as a visitor from outside the USA you are more or less committed to Wi-Fi to escape the ridiculous roaming charges. Unfortunately, we booked for a week after reading the Apr 2015 review on this website, stating there was perfect Wi-Fi installed, but there isn't!
We had, however, a very pleasant stay and there are numerous free Wi-Fi connections available in town, which is a five minutes' drive away by free shuttle bus (every 20 - 25 minutes).
One tip for the staff: pretend to like your guests also on day of departure... - Bluesbirdy

I was hesitant to stay since all sites are back-in, but, with the assistance of the owner, the experience was almost as easy as a pull-through. (Don't try it without him.) Park is immaculate, staff is friendly and helpful (they make you feel like family). Entire park is gravel, sites are level, but a little narrow, especially for multiple slides. If you like the look or sound of water, the creek side sites are great. Some park puddles during hard rain, but good drainage after. Good utilities (30 and 50 amp); high water pressure (use a regulator). AT&T worked fine. Antenna TV provided excellent reception. Dog walk area, and in-park gate to city park and walking trails. Laundry not open until 10 AM (to allow morning showers). This is the closest RV park to Manitou Springs attractions: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds. No campfires, no Wi-Fi, 40' rigs maximum, but if you want a quiet, pleasant, safe, comfortable base to sightsee, this is it. - LoneWolf
