Colorados newest state park is nestled in the landscape that inspired the song, America the Beautiful. Enter this park and marvel at the mountains above and the Colorado Springs skyline below.
Meander and explore amidst natures diversity with prairie-to-peak eco-systems and 20 miles of hiking and biking trails. Stop by the visitor center for information, a little shopping, and educational exhibits or just to relax by the stone fireplace and the wall of windows.
We have an amazing 1680 acres to explore. Years of thoughtful planning went into the park and visitors can now enjoy recreational opportunities year round. The park offers top-notch environmental education programs, trail exploration and picnicking.
The entrance and campground stations may not be attended through the winter, so be sure to stop and make payment for campsites at the self-service station right outside the Camper Services Building. Please be prepared with cash or check, as credit cards can not be accepted with self-service. You may only purchase one night at a time.
The campgrounds were full every weekend and most weekdays this past summer. A reservation is a necessity on the weekends and highly recommended through the week. Plan ahead, as the sites went fast last year and we expect the same demand for next season.
The camper services building is the hub of the campground where you can purchase your permits, check in with a reservation, and get information about the park and surrounding area. The Camper Services Building also has coin-operated showers, laundry, coin-changer as well as a playground and activity room.
