I live in base housing at the USAF Academy & so I haven't stayed in the FamCamp BUT have dropped by a few times. It is one of the best I have ever seen PERIOD. RVs and Campers MUST use South Gate (exit 150) off I-25 because the bridge at the North Gate cannot handle the weight (the gate guard WILL turn you around at the North Gate. South Gate is open 24/7. The North Gate closes at 10pm. On game days the gate guards are in the shack and there is no ID checks as tons of people are coming to the stadium. In the directions getting to the camp it describes crossing railroad tracks. Well, you do . . . kinda! They are below you and go under a bridge so you don't ACTUALLY cross over them (tires on rails). The rest of the directions are good. Basically go thru South Gate and follow that road past the stadium and watch for the sign on the right to turn right into the camp. Again, this is one of the BEST FamCamps I have ever been around. Tons to do in the area as has been mentioned. Other sites within 90 minutes are Royal Gorge, Denver, Broncos, cog rail up the mountain, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Tanger Outlet, Old Colorado City, major league sports teams within 90 minutes are Rockies Baseball, Rapids Soccer, Broncos Football, Nuggets Basketball. Heed the warning about graduation time & home games; the camp is PACKED!

Stayed here during the great Colorado Floods. The camp has excellent drainage all of the interior roads and pads are gravel even with 9" of rain in three days we had no problems with mud. The staff are excellent and accommodating. When we made our reservation they asked if we had a satellite dish on my roof and where on the roof it was located so they could assign me a space accordingly. Need to change the directions some, the roads are clearly marked with road signs. The base security is a bit strange, because of all of the activities at the Academy a lot of civilian tourists come on the base when that happens the north gate is open but unmanned. They have a bunch of portable guard shacks that they setup to keep the public out of the community areas. What this means is that you have to keep your I'd handy at all times.

Nice place, friendly staff, noisy train and a great place to be. Lot's to do in Colorado Springs. Garden of the Gods, Mountains, and fires. I was on the golf course when the black Forest Canyon fire started. It wasn't pretty far and lasted long time. Being a retired firefighter, I can appreciate the hard work those guys put in to get in under control. I was long gone by the time they accomplished it. Commissary and BX were great. I will return many times.

This was the third time we have stayed here and each time there are marked improvements. The staff we worked with John and Diane, helped any any way they could. We extended twice and the transaction was smooth. The grounds and facilities were well kept. Trees have been trimmed back to allow easier access for larger rigs and, in some cases, better satellite reception. I plan on staying here each time I'm in the area.

This is one of the better parks that the military has to offer. Sites are large and can accommodate any size RV. MAKE RESERVATIONS!! They accept them up to 60 days in advance for retired members, and you can request sites that are satellite available, so why not do it, The campground is clean and well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. We stay here every summer and will always have that answer. Lots to do in Colorado Springs and there is always something happening at the Academy. They used to have a monthly rate for the summer season, but is now a flat rate of $22 per day. Expensive by some standards but still cheaper than parks in the nearby area. Don't miss out on this park.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - I marked big rig friendly as we are a 45 foot motorhome and we made it through the trees without scraping sides or top. If you are a motorhome towing, unhitch at the fam camp office. Because of trees, satellite users may have difficulty. Antenna TV brought in a number of channels. We used South Gate and as others have said, a bit of a squeeze going through, but nothing that would cause damage to your rig if you go slow.

D.G. left this review using the Directory software: - This is the first time we've stayed at a FamCamp and based on our experience here, we will check out FamCamps first for future trips and we will definitely stay here any time we are traveling in the area again. It was convenient for visiting Garden of the Gods, the Cog Railroad, and the Academy Chapel. Since I'm a light sleeper, I was a little concerned about the close proximity of the railroad tracks, especially after reading a few of the reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised to find the it was no problem at all, even though we had a campsite about as close as you could get to the railroad track end of the campground. It might be a problem, if you were sleeping in a tent or a pop-up, but not in an RV. The people who checked us in were very helpful and pleasant. The facilities were clean and well maintained. Our campsite was level and well shaded. We were able to get both TV and internet access. This was an excellent introduction to FamCamps. Thanks to this U.S. Military Campgrounds Directory, which we decided to purchase, we'll be prepared for future trips. It's well worth the price to keep up-to-date on nationwide FamCamps.

We stayed here Jun 16-30, 2013. The 40 sites on the west side of the park are closed for an electrical system upgrade/rebuild. The contractor has laid the new conduit, pulled most on the new wiring and is installing new electric boxes. We were told the scheduled contract completion date is 9/5/13 but staff is hoping for early completion. After electrical work new gravel will laid on roads & sites disrupted for the new conduit. Staff is hoping to reopen area in time for USAFA Parents Weekend Aug 29 thru Labor Day. North Gate inbound restriction due to bridge work continues; RV's are to use South Gate entry.

P.O. left this review using the Directory software: - Called for reservations, and they didn't have space for the whole time I was here, but made for the few days they had. Within an hour, Jane called back to inform me they had a cancellation and could get me in but I would have to move to a space after the first night. When we got here, we were informed that they were able to get me set for the whole time. Then I threw them a loop and asked to stay for an extra 4 days. They had us go to our site and within an hour came out to tell us we could stay but would have to move in a couple days which was no problems for us. After walking around the camp that night, we found a space we really liked that the signpost said the people were moving out the next day. So up to the office again, asking if we could have that space. They were able to move a couple things around and get us the space we wanted. Diane and Jane in the office have been great and so helpful. I will come back again.

This FamCap of 100+ sites has about 40 sites (West Side) with no electric. The power is off and they are beginning construction on the new 30 and 50 amp service this week. One employee said they hope to have full service finished by Labor Day. Also, they were limiting entrance to the South Gate (Exit 151 from I-25) as the bridge at the North Gate (Exit 156 from I-25) has some structural problems and they were limiting RV's and big trucks to the South Gate. Use the directions above and you'll have no problems finding the FamCamp from the South Gate. As someone said -GO SLOW through the gate and you'll have no problem. I made the mistake of not making reservations early enough for our projected 10 day stay. It also coincided with the 2013 graduation for the AF Academy - not good. The staff managed to find us all service spots for all but one night - we had to move 4 times but we were okay with that. The sites are for the most part roomy (we have a big rig) and allow for some privacy. Trees can cause difficulty with TV reception but this is an area that has so much to offer that TV just wasn't a priority for us. Staff is very helpful - from sites, to propane service, to letting folks know they have the AF Frequent Camper packages available and supplying quarters for laundry when change machines don't work. Trains were not an issue for us.

The only negative about this awesome campground is the coal train that comes real close to the (I think East) side of the CG. If you are a light sleeper, the camp ground is really big and ask for a site away from the coal train.

We have stayed here many, many times. Our son graduated in 2011 and he attended the prep school before going 'up the hill'. So we've been coming for football games and cadet events for many years. Even now our daughter-in-law has a brother here so we still do some cadet events. We attend most of the away football games and we use military FamCamps whenever we can. Peregrine Pines FamCamp is among the very best. At least as good as Nellis and Travis. The staff is first rate. I truly have no complaints or suggestions for improvement. As long as I am blessed to be physically able to do so, I will continue to use this great facility.

This is our second visit and certainly won't be our last. We were in site 77 near laundry and bathhouse. Excellent free wi-fi and satellite friendly. Sites are large, well maintained and great recycle program. Would suggest that on checking in, this be mentioned. There is also for larger items, a good recycle area near the Exchange. The frequent trains are not a negative. Great area for shopping and restaurants and sightseeing. Staff is most friendly and informed. One of our favorite campgrounds. Once again we had John Goodwin of mdforrv's do a fixed over the air antenna. Last time we had him install a satellite dish. Another plus is washing of RV permitted. Look forward to our next visit.

The frequent trains are not a negative. Great area for shopping and restaurants and sightseeing. Staff is most friendly and informed. One of our favorite campgrounds. Once again we had John Goodwin of mdforrv's do a fixed over the air antenna. Last time we had him install a satellite dish. Another plus is washing of RV permitted. Look forward to our next visit.

K.C. left this review using the Directory software: - Stayed here for a week and the FamCamp was very clean, well run and safe. The 30 day rule for all is in force and that is very good since that prevents the homesteading effect. The sites do not have cable but do have WiFi at the sites. There are two restrooms with codes and two restrooms without codes throughout the campground area. The camp host and staff are very helpful and keep a good log on what is going on the the FamCamp. I will definitely be back in August for three weeks, Commissary, BX, Chapel and other services are close by and off base facilities are ample.

L.R. left this review using the Directory software: - This FamCamp is fantastic! Staff are more than helpful and accommodating. I arrived a couple of hours early and they went to see if my assigned site was vacate. It was so I was allowed to check in. My only negative comment concerns the Air Force Academy's medical facility. I went to get two prescription refilled. The clerk, at AFA's Community Pharmacy, said they would have to call the original pharmacy to get the prescriptions transferred and it would take at least 72 hours. Wal-Mart had it done in 2 hours! Despite the AFA's medical facility, I would stay at Peregrine Pines again.

Stayed 2 weeks in June until the wildfires drove us out. Had a great experience as the park is large & spacious. Got used to the train noise after a few days. Nothing bad to report as it was a really great visit.

This is a great campground and I understand the high marks. The young woman at the front desk was exceptional! The sites are spacious and plenty of room to negotiate the 40 ft motorhome. The only downside has been the train noise - the train rumbles thru and blows the horn all night. As previously posted you can eventually get used to it however, it is a downside to an otherwise totally pleasant experience.

We had to "live" here for almost 2 months last year and I agree with everyone else...very nice facility. We haven't really gotten around to "rving" yet as we have legal problems with the VA but I use this site regularly and plan to give my contribution when all is resolved. We have kids in the Springs and of course VA doctor visits in Denver so this campground is the bee's knees!! Hope to try out the new one up at Buckley next week.

This is a Great FamCamp. We were heading for Denver and called from the road. The lady at the desk took a reservation for that night and gave us great directions to the park. We came in though the south gate, with the speed bumps. Our rig is 55' long, bumper to bumper, and there is NO way to get though those speed bumps. That said, if you you go slow, you won't have any trouble going over them. Once you are in the park, the sites are situated so that you don't feel crowded, and the trees make the nicest sound in the breeze. I will be staying here again.
