We stayed at the FamCamp for 5 nights in July, 2016. I had called 3 months earlier to reserve a site. I specifically told the person taking the reservations that we had a 38 foot 5th wheel (we've been here before and they had the info in the computer) and we needed 50 amp. When we arrived they put us in a short space - our tires hit the backstop at the site - fortunately there were no trees behind us. After unhooking we discovered the site was 30 amp (one of only 7 in the whole campground). We asked to be moved but they said no - well, they said we could but we would have to pick up and move again in the middle of our stay. We opted to stay and just be careful with our electrical requirements. This is the first time we have stayed there that we've had any problems. Because the site was small, we couldn't open our awning all the way due to trees. A smaller RV would work because it would have been sitting in the right spot on the site. Wifi was iffy. Laundry room was spotless and the price was good for the machines - they do have a change machine which was nice. Because our daughter lives in Colorado Springs we will be using this campground again - we will try one more time and if the same sort of thing happens we will have to find other accommodations. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our son was a student at the Academy so he sponsored us to stay here. It was fabulous. We spent 6 weeks there each year - from January -into February and then back again in September for another 6 weeks. Very safe, nice people, we did venture out to another campground near Pikes Peak and came right back to the Academy. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

No fires here unless they have had enough rain. Any campfires have to be in a raised fire ring, so bring one along. They do have them for rent. If you have a student at the Academy this is a great spot to stay for Parent's Weekend - walk to the football stadium.

This is our favorite park by far. It looks like a rustic area with many pines and open areas but has excellent sites that are separated and positioned so that every one feels like you have the place to yourself. All sites have full hookups and are usually level. The staff is very good and will accommodate you any way they can. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

What everybody else said. Great, beautiful campground. Long pull-throughs, good sized lots. Ours was a triangle shape. Best water pressure and voltage I seen in a month. Good WiFi, but slow when many are on. OTA is adequate, but I am having trouble tuning in my antenna. Train tracks and I-25 are close. Traffic noise is not noticeable but train noise can be disruptive when trying to sleep. Small aircraft noise is present at time from the USAFA airfield. Convenient to Colorado Springs and tourists sites. Commissary is small but adequate, bx is nice. Cannot use north gate due to construction. RVs do not have to use the truck inspection area at the south gate (I-25 exit 150). We had a rather long wait to find that out. Campground roads have many deep potholes. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Very nice FamCamp right across street from USAF football stadium. Lovely base. Very friendly staff in office. Lots of trees, sites are nicely spaced. Good laundry and WiFi. Will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the better FamCamps in the system. Customer service is excellent. Pea-gravel sites are long and have decent space between them, especially on the patio side, with a metal picnic table and BBQ grill. Some are not satellite friendly unless you have a portable dish antenna. A handful of sites have minor sloping issues. There are two nice bath/laundry buildings at each end of the CG. It's kid friendly with a playground, volley ball court, and plenty of space to ride bikes. Also for the kids, there is an ample supply of junk food sweets at the check-in office. Voltage is good even with a full park. Water pressure is high! A regulator is a must. My Wi-Fi repeater signal at the back of the camp was 5 bars so the signals are solid, but it’s slow when the park is full and everyone is hogging bandwidth. Verizon 4G is good. If you have a digital ready TV, then there are about a dozen stations that can be received. The AF base has all of the amenities one needs with an exception that the Commissary is small. Go off base and use a local grocery. There is also a separate 30A section of the CG which is similar in all respects. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This is a gorgeous FamCamp. It’s tucked away down the road from the Air Force Academy cadet area, back in the woods. The campground is full of pine trees and tons of hummingbirds. We put out a 32-oz feeder and they drained it in 2 days. There’s lots of other wildlife as well. We were warned of bears and mountain lions, but didn’t see any. We did; however, see wild turkey, a fox, and two coyotes in the immediately area of the campground (like across the dirt road). The WiFi is sketchy and there are a couple of laundry facilities for .75 per washer and dryer. There’s a very active train track that runs through the back end of the campground and it loves to lay on the horn as it’s passing through, about 8-10 times per night? Yep, don’t expect to get much sleep here. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this FAMCAMP. It's in a beautiful setting on the USAFA grounds. The staff was quite nice; allowing us to check in early, they drove around monitoring things from time to time. Our site was quite spacious. Literally about 3 times as large as any KOA we stayed. We stayed in a back in site with quite a few trees for privacy. Fire pits don't come standard on sites; but there are a limited number of fire pits available to rent for $10. Only stipulation is you must clean them, not a big deal. We would stay here again. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit to USAF facility. We have used other services and most are usually well above average. As expected, this was a top notch place. Check in was smooth and we were "strongly" advised to not let the cat out in the evening as bear, coyote, and mountain lion were all reported to be in the area. (We never saw nor heard evidence of any). Spaces are large and fairly level. Hookups are easy, and good. We were there on a football weekend so it was crowded but we never felt it. Feel I can not give a 10 for several issues: (a) WiFi was very spotty in our site. Perhaps we were too far from the tower, but it would cut out all of a sudden then come back in 3-10 minutes. (b) Noise of trains and announcements was poor. Can't help the trains (so be forewarned), but the announcements of some weather issue were loud but unintelligible. Glad it wasn't serious. Not fault of campground, but distressing to have announcement blaring and not be able to understand what it is about except the phrase, "Take cover immediately!" Need to improve speakers and those speaking. But both issues are minor and not really that bad. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

If you can stay here, please do. This is a wonderful place to be. It is a wooded area but they keep it clean and neat. Ask for a satellite friendly site. Love the way the spots are laid out with plenty of room between units. Of course, there is so much to see in the area so we extended our stay. Will definitely stay here again in the future.
