It is always so exciting to be at Falcon Meadow in the spring for the bird migration. The campground is like an oasis in the plains east of the mountains with different birds passing through each year. Some favorites come every year, Blue Grosbeak, American Goldfinch, Spotted Towhee, Bullock’s Oriole, and Green-Tailed Towhee. They are all so colorful during breeding season. This year a flock of Evening Grosbeaks came to the feeder. I find it very relaxing to take a walk around the campground, enjoy the view of Pikes Peak and the other mountains to the west, hearing the different song birds, and sometimes see herds of Pronghorn antelope in the fields surrounding the campground.
This is our fourth year to stay at Falcon Meadow Campground. The first year we checked out all the campgrounds in the Colorado Springs area and decided there was no place we’d rather be than here. Camping here from May through mid-November, it feels like home. The owners are two of the hardest working people we have ever known. They, and their great employees, do all they can to make all the campers feel welcome and enjoy their stay. Any problem is handled in an efficient and timely manner. They have a very fair monthly rate which includes free Wifi. The views are great, there are plenty of places to hike or bike right here in Falcon, and you can enjoy being in the “country” yet close to city conveniences and all the area attractions. Also, to update some information there is now a Super Wal-Mart in Falcon, just a little over a mile from the campground if you choose to walk or two miles by car.
