Book ahead. State Park. Newer, well planned, well staffed. Breathtaking views, close to Colorado Springs. Did hear some "booms" from the base one night. Does get very windy at times. Private sites, fun trails to hike. This was at the top of our list of best parks.
We are repeat customers. Friendly & helpful staff make us feel welcome. We feel safe and comfortable. Basic (mostly) quiet, older, park. Just east of Colorado Springs. Some shade trees. In our opinion, this is the cleanest, safest park around until you get to the West side of Colorado Springs near the front range. We find the location great. We arrive, set up, spend our days in town. When we leave we are already near I24 and don't have to fight traffic to head back East.
