Colorado Springs

Going to be in the Springs in late May. Looking for a good place to stay. Prefer full hookups. Anybody have a preference?

The Cheyenne Mountain State Park has had some good reviews, it's just south of town off of HWY 115 near Ft. Carson. We have stayed at Mountaindale and Golden Eagle both are a little further south on HWY 115. We have not stayed at any parks in the Springs city limits but have not read much good about them. There is a KOA south on I25 near Camping World, there is Meadows CG in Falcon just to the East on HWY 24 that looks nice. If you are military the Air Force Academy has a nice Famcamp. We normally weekend in Monument but that is an ROD membership CG.

We've stayed at Garden of the Gods campground right in town adjacent to Manitou Springs below Pikes Peak with our 40' MH & toad and really enjoyed our stay. Manitou Springs is charming and is also where ya can pick up the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak, a VERY enjoyable ride !!

Cheyene Mountain State Park is absolutely wonderful! Big new sites, full hookups, wonderfull views, great staff. Colorado State Parks has a good web page and reservation system. At CMSP you can go to their web page and actually view pictures of each camp site. We have stayed there three times in two years and I would not consider anywhere else unless I absolutely had to!

Good Luck,

Dave

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We stayed for a couple of days just northwest of Colorado Springs off of Hwy. 24 in Woodland Park at Diamond Campground and RV Park. Tall pines and well over a hundred sites. We chose it because of the proximity to Pike's Peak. Nice park and it was away from the busyness of CS...paid $32 a night. Garden of the Gods nearby as well. Lots to see in that area.

BTW, when we visited they were paving all the way to the 'peak' of Pike's. IMO, it will probably lose some of the charm of the drive, but it'll be smooth all the way to the top...of the World!

We spent a week at Manitou Springs RV Park real close to Garden of the Gods RV Park. The family that runs it is outstanding, and you are close to everything.

They decided not to finish the paving, too many critics.
