    We just returned from a weekend at this wonderful park. This was the first time we've taken our pop up, Rosebud, out on an adventure. I highly recommend it to anyone. We really enjoyed the close proximity to what Colorado Springs has to offer. We ventured out to the Garden of the Gods on this trip. This was our first trip to Colorado Springs. I never knew all of the cool things in the city. As for the campsite... this is one of the cleanest sites we've stayed in. We also were impressed with what they had to offer for entertainment for our kids. There was a table set up with skins and skulls of animals as well as a wild turkey program at night. They absolutely loved it. Again, we would recommend this site to anyone in need of a good camping experience.

    Happy Camping!

    I've heard good things. I had debated between Cheyenne Mountain and Mueller for our trip this Summer. Ended up at Mueller just 'cause I'd always wanted to stay there. Probably for closeness to Colorado Springs, Cheyenne Mountain would be better.

    Do you have any pics you can post? I'd love to see it!

    Thanks,

    I didn't think to get pictures of the site. I was just excited to get the pop up popped up. I'm a photographer for goodness sake. [V] I'll know better for the future.

    The drawback of this park is noise (helicopters) and lights from nearby Ft. Carson. It reminds me of camping in Arizona, as there are not many shade trees.

    This is a nice State park with many amenities. [CP] [CK] [BBQ] [PP]

    Hola To All

    I Like This Place !!!

    If you like setting up so that you can see "for miles & miles" you may
    do it. Or if you want an site so that others do not know that you are
    around ... it is there.

    Every time we have RV'ing Guest I take them to Cheyenne Mountain
    State Park and show them the mistake they made by paying for KOA
    or another commercial place that is 11 feet from the next ( just like
    Walmart ).

    If you do not want to have That Western Grilled Meal you may load up
    and "go to town" or call for delievered Pizzia.

    This place is also handy for us because we can pack up an be there any
    time that we wish.

    Ahh the big cold glass of lemonaide - the shade - that unbelieviable vista
    and that ole tyme feelin.

    The only times that we have had an problem was in the winter months when
    we needed an wind block and a full parka.

    Stayed here this weekend great park. Amenities were awesome. Staff was friendly. The view was beautiful. Some may find it annoying but I enjoyed the bugle calls from nearby Ft Carson. The sites were spaced nicely so you weren't on top of your neighbor or they weren't cutting through your site. Lots of attractions with in driving distance. Cheyenne mountain zoo, Santas workshop, cave of the winds and Manatu springs.
