    Clean and accessible campground but not a lot of views. Great campground amenities and activities nearby... but you'll have to drive to most of them.

    I did enjoy the views and surroundings of this area, the campsite itself I have a couple of issues with.

    First of all the surroundings - totally beautiful, and close enough to Colorado Springs/Garden of the Gods that a day trip to there is basically mandatory! Don't miss it!

    Now regarding the camp ground, it is indeed pretty but the car camping sites are really tiny and basically right on the road. They cater more to rv's and other wheeled types of campers. For those sites there is basically NO privacy at all. I believe most of these type of drive in sites have electricity. This is the type of campsite that makes up the majority of their sites. There are a few walk-in sites for tenters and you should be prepared for a hike to get to them (and your gear gets heavy during that hike, so pack light! You also have a long treck in the middle of the night should you need to use the "eh-hem" facilities, so keep that in mind the farther out you go), but they are the best for privacy and views.

    The things I was most disappointed with are that they didn't have good tent sites that you could drive into, and another issue I thought was ridiculous is that they don't allow you to hang ANYTHING from the trees, no clothes lines, no hammocks, etc. I seriously doubt that my high end hammock with special hanging ropes would have ever hurt any of those strong trees... but nooo you might hurt the tree... Whatever!

    So my grades: for the beauty of the area they get 6 stars out of 5, and for the park policies and camp site size & options they get a 3 out of 5, so averaged out they get 4 stars.

    Camped here once a few years back and had a good time. Disappointed to see the singletrack trails are closed to bikes now - bummer.

    Awesome! Awesome! This is a MUST VISIT camp ground for families. We hiked in 200 yards to our camp site with kids ages 4 and 2. Quiet, private, great views and lots of trails & playgrounds. Pets prohibited on trails, so we didn't hike as much as we'd hoped. The Dragonfly Nature Trail is a great interactive trail for kids. Memorial Day weekend had tons of scheduled activites. Quick drive to Divide for supplies, and more in Woodland Park if necessary. The back roads from west Denver (I470 to 285 to 126 to 67) were just as quick given holiday traffic on I25 and very scenic, of course.
