If the mountains are calling your name, Colorado Springs is a great place to visit. If you’re traveling with your RV; albeit motorhome, fifth wheel, travel trailer or camper, we found a cool little campground that may just lure you to stay; Mountaindale RV Resort. But don’t let their description ‘resort’ fool you. Here’s why…

Arrival and Check-in
We arrived after check-in time and were greeted by the friendly staff. Check-in was a little confusing due to them assigning us a site too small. We were very clear of our size requirements when we made our reservation several weeks prior on the phone. They did accommodate by moving us to another site.
The campground was dirt and small gravel; from the road to the sites. Some sites were a challenge to park big rigs due to boulders and rock walls that made maneuvering a challenge.
The maintenance staff did do an exceptional job keeping the trees trimmed with no low-hanging branches or stumps. The facility and sites were clean. There was one dumpster which was at the entrance/exit.
The Campground Facilities
The facility accommodated our group with a meeting room that hosted the rally activities.
Mountaindale has a bathhouse/showers, restrooms, and laundry. For outdoor entertainment, they have a set of horseshoe pits, small volleyball court, playground for the children, dog walking area, and two covered small pavilions. In the office building was a small supply store, lounge, computer room and game room.
There was an above ground hot tub however, it was not the cleanest and something we would not use.
In their brochure, it stated there are hiking trails however, we were too busy with the rally to check them out. We did get to experience wildlife viewing (deer) from our site.
Based on our experiences, Mountaindale RV Resort shouldn’t be labeled as a ‘Resort’ as it has no swimming pool, ‘resort type’ amenities or anything resembling what ‘resort grounds’ should be or look like. Mountaindale was no different than any other campground. It’s located in the woods, in the dirt with nothing more than standard campground amenities. Though, it is close to the Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, and downtown Colorado Springs, the price of $302 for our one-week stay was way overpriced.
Not applicable to us but worth noting, there were 7 cabins for rent.
Important to note for future guests who have dogs; they have a dog breed-restricted policy. Call prior to get restriction information.
