Campground recommendation in Colorado

I am looking for a campground recommendation close to Woodland Park, Colo just north of Colorado Springs. We like electric but forest service cgs without hookups are fine and a lot cheaper.

Mtnman, from my reference book called Colorado Campgrounds: The 100 Best and All the Rest for the Woodland Park area, top campground in all of Colorado (per the book) is Mueller State Park, where it fills up mid-May to mid-October every weekend. Reservations necessary. Even through mid September, it fills by noon each weekday. Must be great. For Pikes Peak views, #1-5 and 38-44. For Sangre de Cristos and Collegiate Peaks, # 81-82. 7 mi south of Divide, unlimited rv length. All electrical and a dump station. Hope these notes from the book may help. I am surprised that it stays so busy after Labor Day. We may head in that direction in a couple of weeks. Another top campground recommended for the area is called Painted Rocks, 8.5 mi north of Woodland Park, but rvlength is limited to 21' which may fit your Minuet. nearest dump station is 2 mi back on highway. Ponderosa Pine offers fair shade. Open through September, reservations are recommended. Other reviewed campgrounds that sound good are: South Meadows, Colorado, Springdale, Meadow Ridge, and Thunder Ridge. Now, please note, these are notes from a book, as cited. I'm sitting here in Missouri and do not personally know these campsites. (Is that a disclaimer?!) Good luck ~G

First hand info...

I'd second the vote for Mueller State Park. Been there, loved it...will go back time & again.

Thanks folks! I looked up the South Meadows cg, I think that one will work fine. I heard that Mueller SP is very crowded and expensive as a $5 per day gate fee has been added to the daily camping fee.
