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.

Tips for other Campers:

This is at the Air Force Academy so there are many things to see and do. Don't forget to go up Pikes Peak either by driving or on the Cog Railway. Many other excellent things to do.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Wal-Mart, many other businesses, and many restaurants are just outside the south gate.

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.

The only downer is the trains down the mountain side can be heard on a regular basis. But other wise beautiful setting. Will come back again. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

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.

Our 2nd stay , we really enjoy this family camp. It is set in a beautiful setting. Not busy in Sept. Used our satellite for the first time and it worked very well, however you cannot use your satellite at all sites because of the trees, so when making reservations be sure and ask for a satellite site. The only downside on this visit is that the showers were not that clean, not sure they were cleaned every day. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

One terrific campground. It would be a 10 except that leveling required blocks. All the utilities worked great. Sites were generously spacious and the place was unbelievably quiet even over a home football weekend. There is train noise but not enough to interrupt your sleep. Satellite worked great but ask for a satellite site. Did not use WiFi but is is available. Staff was friendly and helpful. Verizon worked great.

I gave it a 10 even though no Cable. We are able to pick up all major networks on our antenna with box so TV not an issue. Wi-Fi works great. Sites are big and the many trees provide the shade. Great location. Peaceful. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Nice park,especially if touring the area. Secure, on base facilities, office was not open, everything is self check-in . This time of year no problem getting a site; there were only a handful of campers in the park. Laundry and rest rooms were nice and clean. Wi-Fi was excellent. Only downside were the numerous trains going through in the back of the park, but did not bother us. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Peregrine Pines is everything that the previous reviewers said it was - great. Yes they seem to have lots of trains with loud horns after nightfall in the back section but that is nothing that the campground can do anything about. Their wi-fi was intermittent but their restrooms are excellent and they even provide soap in dispensers in the showers. Not all sites are satellite friendly but they swapped us into a site (#77) that allowed our roof top dish to work at 100%. Thank you camp staff. I played/walked two rounds of golf on the Eisenhower Silver course ( the Blue course was tied up with the Colorado PGA tournament finals ) and was totally impressed with the course condition and its surrounding scenery. For you seniors, the fast food place beside the commissary gives free coffee. Note that on football weekends the campground gets full so reservations are a must. We’d be delighted to camp here whenever we’re in the Colorado Springs area. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
