Camping in Cheyenne Mountain State Park offers the best of both worlds!
Step out of your tent or R.V and onto one of our 18 trails, which span over 21 miles of CMSP wilderness. If you prefer having all the comforts, conveniences, tourist hot spots and other amenities that cities offer, then you'll be glad to know that the campground is a mere 10 minute drive from downtown Colorado Springs - and a short drive from several nearby attractions.
Things to note when considering camping at CMSP:
- Campground open year-round
- 51 Full Hook-Up sites
- 10 Basic Tent sites
- General Store
- Coin operated showers & laundry
Open all year long - we have four campgrounds consisting of spacious Full Hook-up & tent sites. Reservations can be made on every site. During the Winter season, Swift Puma Campground is the only loop available for reservations while all other campgrounds are first-come first-served.
Our Camper Services building is in the center of the campground, which is open from April to mid October. It houses camper amenities such as the laundry room, showers and a General Store of snacks, collectables, gifts, firewood & last-minute emergency supplies. It even has a playground for the kids!
During the winter months, camping permits (for those without a reservation) can be purchased at the Visitor Center (open 9am - 4pm) or after hours at the self-serve station (with cash or check) located near the handicapped parking at the Camper Services building. The required vehicle pass may also be purchased at these locations.

Dogs in the Campground
Dogs have always been welcome in the campgrounds, picnic sites and other developed areas - and as of September 2017, they are also now invited to share a hike with you on a few of our trails.
Dogs must be kept on a 6' leash waste must be responsibly removed. View the Map of Dog Trails and associated requirements.
We know that pets are important members of the family - and so due to the diversity of the wildlife in the park, we ask visitors and their dogs to respect wildlife as you also enjoy the outdoors. Dogs are allowed only on designated trails and never in the back country.
Never let your dog chase or harass wildlife.
