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 (seasonal)
- Coin operated showers and laundry (seasonal)
Open for year-round camping, we have four campgrounds consisting of spacious full hook-up and tent sites. Reservations can be made on every site in the Summer - then during the Winter season, sites are limited to the loop available.
Our Camper Services building is located in the center of the four campground loops; open from mid April to mid October. When open, it serves as camper check-in and has a general store of snacks, souvenirs, ice, and firewood. This location also offers coin operated showers, laundry room, and an activity room. It has an adjacent fenced playground area for the kids!

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 and waste must be picked up and disposed of properly. 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.
