Although this was a quick stop on our July whirlwind tour of the Rocky Mountain states, it was one of the best state parks I have seen in Colorado. Cheyenne Mountain State Park was up on the side of the Rocky Mountains overlooking Colorado Springs, CO. The scenery was spectacular especially at night. You can see the twinkling of city lights but still have the peace and quite of nature. Great place to RV or tent camp. The RV site we stayed at had a cement pad with updated, full hook ups. Some of the sites had additional tent spots so that you or your guest can sleep under the stars.
We are not getting paid for the advertisement of the these facilities. The content in this blog is of our own views and honest opinions.
If you want to see wildlife, this is a great place to do so. We had deer walk right through our campsite and go up the hill. If you travel with pets, be aware of the wildlife that you may stumble upon, such as: black bear, cougar, deer, elk, coyotes, fox, prairie dogs, red-tailed hawks, golden eagles and wild turkeys. There are some fantastic hiking trails that you can walk your dogs on and trails that are no dogs allowed. On the trails that allowed dogs there were “doggy bags” and a waste container available so that you can clean up after your fur babies (please do so).
Very nice park, meticulous camp sites, very clean bathrooms, and a wonderful welcome center with friendly staff. Cost of camping for 2019 has raised to $41 a night plus a park pass; I suggest you make reservations ahead of time. They also have discounts and incentives for active, retired, and disabled vets.
I wish we had more time to stay. There was an Archery event that my boys would have love to have done. There are a lot of activities throughout the year that both adults and children would love. This park is definitely on our list to visit again.
