Summary:

The Garden of the Gods RV Resort is located in Colorado Springs, Colo., just four miles off Interstate 25. The RV park is extremely close to the infamous Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Canyon open space which includes miles and miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.

The Midland trail runs along the backside of the park and allows you access to the quaint town of Manitou Springs and Garden of the Gods Park. Although the park is accessible via the trail, I would suggest driving it first to assess the hilly terrain and see if you are up for the challenge.

Pros

  • Extremely clean and well kept park. The leaves are raked, the grass is cut and it is clear that they take great pride in the outside appearance there park.
  • All of the spots are full hook up with 30- and 50-amp electricity options.
  • The fall is a beautiful time to visit, the weather is still nice, and rates dropped dramatically beginning Oct. 1.
  • There are rentals available, so it is a great place to have family or friends visit and not have to cram them in your RV.
  • The front desk accepts U.S. mail and packages so it makes very easy for full-timers to get things they need.
  • Hot showers and clean bathhouses are available 24 hours a day with a key code so only registered guests have access to them.
  • There are two laundry facilities which are both very clean and the washers and dryers work great. The washers are $2 per wash and the dryers are $0.25 for the first five minutes and each additional quarter gives you 10 additional minutes.
  • Access to the Midland Trail is available right from the path and is the perfect place for an evening stroll or bike ride along the river’s edge.
  • The RV park is very close to many area attractions and within 20 minutes of everything in Colorado Springs. There are gas stations with diesel fuel, Starbucks and a grocery store within 1 mile of the park.
  • There is free Wi-Fi located throughout the park.
  • Our RV antenna had good reception and we were able to pick up close to 30 free channels even with the trees in the park.
  • There is a fenced-in bark park for dogs, and a kids playground in close proximity to the bathhouse.
  • The indoor arcade is great rainy day fun for kids of all ages.
  • The RV registration office is very nice and includes a sitting area where Wi-Fi can be used, a gift shop with unique gifts and hot coffee for purchase.
  • Weekly and monthly rate discounts are available as well a Good Sam discount.
  • The staff is very accommodating and went out of their way to find us a spot that we could stay for the entire week even though they had a rally coming in. It was very nice to not have to move sites during our stay even though we called relatively last minute for reservations.
  • Reservations can be made online, in person or over the phone.
  • A very nice heated pool was available for use during the summer season.
  • Each site comes with a cement patio and high quality picnic table
  • Cable TV is provided at some of the sites
  • A large pavilion and community fire pit are available for use.
  • For the right price there are limited pull through paved 65-foot sites available

Cons

  • Some of the roads are narrow but you just have to take it slow going in and out of the park and getting into your spot.
  • Sites are close together, so cross your fingers for a good neighbor.
  • It was difficult for me to get through to the park over the phone. I had to leave a message each time I called and wait for a call back. That was a bit frustrating.
