Camping in Cheyenne Mountain State Park offers the best of both worlds!
Step out of your tent or RV and onto one of our 21 trails, which span over 27+ 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 many nearby attractions.
Things to note when considering camping at CMSP:
- Campground open year-round
- 51 Full Hook-Up sites
- 10 Basic Tent sites
- Coin operated showers and laundry (Seasonal; These amenities are for active campers only.)
- Demand for the sites is high and the campgrounds are usually reserved well in advance (often the maximum of 6 months).
Open for year-round camping, we have four campgrounds consisting of spacious full hook-up and basic tent sites. Reservations can be made on every site in the Summer; while Winter season reservations are limited to the loop available.
Our Camper Services building is located in the center of the four campground loops; open from April to October it offers coin operated showers, laundry room, and an activity room. It has an adjacent fenced playground area for the kids!
