I love this the best of all military campgrounds, mainly because of its location in the Foothills of the mountains with many nice hiking trails and other activities right the base. Very well shaded, very well managed and maintained. There is so much to do in the Colorado Springs area that if you get bored, it's your own fault. Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Pike's Peak, Cripple Creek (and casinos), Woodland Park and Manitou Springs -- just to name a few. Commissary and Exchange are nice but small, we went to Peterson AFB and Fort Carson occasionally to use the larger facilities. The Academy Bowl on base near the Exchange has the best Cheeseburgers of anywhere. 30 days is the max stay allowed for the summer season, I would stay here all summer if I could, but I can understand the need to limit because of the popularity. You can stay longer for the winter in October after the Navy/AF game.
