General Description

Colorado Campground is located in the Manitou Park Recreation Area which is 5.2 miles north of Woodland Park along Colorado Highway 67. It has 81 camp sites to accommodate trailers and RVs at least 30 feet long. The elevation is 7,800 feet and the camping season begins in May and continues into September. The user fee is $12.00 per night per site.

This campground has paved roads and pads. Limited sites are reservable by calling National 1.877.444.6777. Reservations can be made 240 days prior to your arrival. There is a two-night minimum if your reservations are for either Friday or Saturday night. This will not apply to sites not on the reservation system.

Many of the users in these campgrounds use them as a base from which they visit the many attractions in the area which range from Pikes Peak to the Air Force Academy to the Garden of the Gods. Manitou Lake is a 34-acre reservoir where the entire family can enjoy fishing and hiking
trail #670 around the lake. Motorboats and swimming are not permitted, because of the easy access to this area and its popularity. Fishing occurs
year-round in the reservoir along with Trout Creek for those who prefer
stream fishing. An asphalt-surfaced bicycle trail #699, approximately
4.2 miles long connects all of the campgrounds and the picnic ground; an
enjoyable event for kids of all ages. An RV dump station is located at Pike Community Group Area, which has both potable and non-potable water. You may find this area closed after Labor Day.
