Foot of the Rockies RV Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Foot of the Rockies RV Resort is a city RV park located on the edge of a multi-tiered hill overlooking downtown Colorado Springs. The resort’s roads are paved with large gravel sites. Our sewer connection was in the back of the site near the electric pedestal so we were glad we had a long hose. Not all sites are setup this way however.

The resort offers a small laundry facility, enclosed dog park with large cement pipes as fun obstacles; the staff is extremely dog friendly and very helpful. We were welcomed as we drove into the park. The office will accept forwarded mail, just call ahead to make arrangements first.  This park is conveniently located to stores, area attractions and access to Interstate 25.

As expected, there is no state park feel to this park; after all it is in the city with the typical city noises and lights. There are many year round residents at this park, so at first glance one might question staying here. But everyone has been very friendly and welcoming. We still scratch our heads though about the use of the word “Resort” in the name of the park. There really aren’t any amenities here that would support the word – it’s just a name. We felt safe and comfortable here, and would stay here again if we were visiting Colorado Springs again.

Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!

If you decide to go back to the Colorado Springs area and spend some time, South Meadows, a Forest Service campground near Woodland Park, is very nice. No hookups but there is water and a dump. It was an easy drive to CO Spgs, Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak, Manitou Spgs, etc. And Woodland Park is a nice little town. We weren't impressed with the RV parks around there.
