This a small, family owned park. This park is very well maintained, and very clean. The WiFi worked great and the pool was great after a long day on the road! We only stayed one day as a stoppover but would definitely recommend.
Found out when we checked in, that a plumbing problem had our camp cabin unit, was out of service. They upgraded us to a Mountain Suite! This is definitely the best park to stay in around Manitou Springs/Colorado Springs. We checked out several parks in the area and we were so glad we chose this one. It is literally right next to the Garden of the Gods and the views there are amazing! Would definitely return to this park!
Camped here in their two room camper cabins. Absolutely loved this park! Tons of stuff to do for kids. Pancake breakfast for $2.50 a person. Took the shuttle to Mt Rushmore, this is the only way to go, you miss all the traffic and the shuttle fee includes your admission to Rushmore. Staff was excellent and camp store has everything you need. Will recommend again and again!
We camped here in early April and it was cold! A cold snap had blown in earlier in the week and we had to rearrange our plans. We called this park to see if we could get a spot last minute and they were great! They got us checked in and filled with water (they had the water turned off due to freeze warnings, did I mention it was cold?) and on our site in great fashion. They have a wonderful little camp store where we were able to find everything we needed that we had forgotten to pack. We were surprised to find the park so full with the cold weather, but we were also surprised to find that even though they were pretty full-the showers were immaculate. Usually the more people are in a park the less clean the restrooms and showers end up. My wife used the laundry facility and found it be nice and well kept. I would highly recommend this park to anyone in the Hershey area. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.
We camped here while visiting Washington DC with our children during spring break. The park is older and in need of some upkeep. The office staff was ok, but we had to ask for information about the metro, shopping, etc. things that most parks near tourist attactions will have ready for you when you check-in; we had to ask for and they seemed a little disorganized. The shower houses were rarely clean although we did see them cleaning them as we left. It rained during our visit and we got to exprience the muddy campsites and terrible roads inside the grounds. I haven't even started to talk about the area of DC this park is located in. We had debated between Cherry Hill or this one. We made the wrong choice. The metro is over a 30 minute drive to get to the station. The ride in takes almost an hour to get to downtown. It cost our family (5) almost $40/day in metro fare to travel back and forth. I picked up a local paper near our campground and was not surprised to learn that violent crime was unusually high for March of 07. There is a trailer park across the street from the campground. We got to hear a local involved in a domestic disturbance on one night and then the police chopper a few minutes later. Lets just say that we will not be back. We will however visit the DC area again, just not at this park!
We stayed here in late March. They owner was very friendly and helpful. She led us to our campsite and made sure we were ok with everything before she left. The park is pretty old and very woodsy, almost a state park feel with all the trees. I probably wouldn't stay for an extended time but for a quick overnighter it was just right!
