The park had several campgrounds and many trails including 4 dog friendly trails. The park also has an archery area. Park fee was $7 per car. The park has meadows and woody areas and is located southwest of colorado springs.

We made a side trip here hoping to enjoy a nice hike where we could photograph wildlife. The hike was scenic and we did not encounter many other people. There was abundant wildlife from birds to deer herds. The facilities were clean. Definitely a park that I would like to explore further on another trip.

We loved our off season visit, even though laundry, showers, rec room, etc were shut down for the winter. This was a great disappointment as their website didn't indicate such. No showers? Wow.

Anyway, we made do and the small inconveniences were offset by the great views. We were in site 27 and had great nighttime views of the lights of Colorado Springs. So pretty. Stay awake until 10:00 or hear faintly in your dreams the sound of taps played from one of the military bases. Then awake in the morning to the faint sound of reveille. Did I spell that right? Anyway, open your curtains and you'll see a beautiful sunrise right from your bed. So beautiful, don't miss it.

My one gripe is having to pay a $7 per day free IN ADDITION to your camping fee. Not right, because most people vacate the campground during the day so they can visit the other sights in the area.

Walk-ins are also only able to register no more than two days. This is because inclement weather (those winds are horrific) often causes people to pack up and leave and no refunds are available. So it's not a bad policy although it takes time out of your day to re-register. Anyway, enjoy this great campsite. It's special.

Labor Day 2017. From TX, with another couple, each in our own RV, each towing car. 1st night in CO we stayed at Golden Eagle Camp, took 1 car off the tow, drive to Cheyenne didn't bother to put car back on Dolly. Rude female ranger named Casey, said that we would need to pay 7.00 a day for our RV and our cars, since we didn't tow them into park. She was not convinced we towed our cars from TX seriously she absolutely harassed and called 3 other rangers and harassed us for over 2 hours

Our family of 5 stayed here two nights while visiting the Colorado springs area. We had walk in tent site 133. When we read 300+ feet, we were worried, but no need! Easy to get to, easy access to bathrooms, yet great privacy due to surrounding shrub oak! We loved the nice bathrooms, laundry, showers, and playground. We even saw a family of deer right near our site when we woke up the second day! It's also a fantastic location for visiting garden of the gods and other area sights. Just a couple things to be aware of: outdoor bathroom lights stay on late (maybe all night?) Which makes it a bit brighter than I'd prefer. Also, army bugle calls sound at 10pm and 6:30am from the nearby base. My kids sleep through them, my hubby hated them, and I liked them. Small things, and we'd definitely return here again - definitely to the walk in sites!
