This is the second time here, almost one year ago and had to return. Only did an overnight. I'll just ditto "floridacamper"in their review. As far as some of the others that reviewed. Big Rig friendly, YES it its. I have a 43' coach and had no problems getting through. Had to drop my trailer behind the office, plenty of room to get it around. Great sites, and very friendly employees, always helpful. When we arrived with tornado warning sirens sounding which made things a bit exciting. When traveling through the area I would always stop. Absolutely love this place. So much to do and see. I have to go back to some comments that others have made about "Big Rig Friendly". Look though the FC and take a look how many big rigs are in there, from 30' to 45' coaches...

OK famcamp. Lots of trees thus no satellite. Sites were gravel (not too level) and some located very close together. Wifi was non-existent at the sites. They had wifi available at other areas but you would have to sit outside to use it. AF Academy is a nice location--very large installation with lots of land mass. Didn't use the facilities (laundry or shower) but went inside to check them out and they appeared clean and well taken care of. There are two 18 hole golf courses--played both. Both courses were in great shape. If I were to return to this area, would probably consider a different location.
Pros, cool temps in summer, some sites shaded. Cons, WIFI is a joke, cell service just OK. No cable, not big rig friendly with trees/vehicles in road. Pricey, no weekly/monthly rate. They could get good WIFI and offer longer stay rates to improve.
I'll start with the negatives first. OK, there are no negatives for us. Making a reservation was easy. I had to leave a message but I did receive a call back in a few hours, unlike some other famcamps I've dealt with recently. Check in was easy. I asked for a site where I could receive satellite and that's what I got. The base is very large and well kept. The mountains in the distance are very cool....I mean still snow capped. Temps in the 50's early in the morning, warming to 80's during the day. Sites are very spacious and you don't feel on top of your neighbor. The price is fair and there is lots to do in the area, i.e. Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek and more. The previous review mention the laundry. Maybe there are some washers and dryers at the price mentioned but we just finished using them and paid .75 for the washers and .75 for the dryers. The cheapest of this trip. It's amazing the difference between famcamps... This one is a keeper. BZ to the AF Academy.
We liked our stay at Peregrine Pines. We were told we had a site with satellite access but our Winegard Traveler would not lock on. Too many trees at site #43. We moved forward and backward three times to try and find an opening but to no avail. We eventually gave up and just watched local TV for a week. It was not the end of the world but we were told and we expected to get satellite TV. Site was fine, plenty of space between neighbors, mostly level and the camp staff would deliver a campfire store if you wanted one for $7 nite (first nite, then $5 after that.) The USAFA is a fantastic place to visit and a great location for the many things to do in Colorado Springs. The laundry was very reasonable at $1.75/wash and $1.25/dry. You may need a sewer hose extension. We had to hook both ours and it was maxed out. Overall very good experience. We camped in a 40' motorhome.

We stayed a month and really enjoyed our stay. Great setting in a pine forest, with birds, squirrels, pocket gophers, and the occasional deer. We had requested a site with satellite TV access, which we got (#59). Might need to move the rig back and forth for the right position to get a signal, and if particularly windy the movement of the branches might cause some pixelation. Site wasn't very level, but again, by moving the rig back and forth a bit, we managed to get mostly level with our jacks and no additional blocks. Spacious sites with plenty of space between sites as well ... some more so than others. Front desk staff welcoming and helpful. Hiked the Falcon Trail on base -- 13 miles of up and down; great exercise and wonderful scenery. Access the base from the South Gate as recommended; lines to get in did get long at times as more often than not only one of several checkpoints was open. You might want to reconsider staying if you find train noise particularly bothersome (mostly whistles; mostly at night from our site) ... was not an issue for us. USAFA Command Center warns of lightning within 5 nautical miles. Announcements are made over the P/A system ... we appreciated the extra warning as several storms came through the area during our stay.

The overall location of the FAMCAMP was outstanding in relation to the geographical area. Bathrooms/showers & laundry room were very clean and couldn't beat the price for the stay. Although there were no fire pits, they had fire rings you could rent and firewood to purchase. There were BBQ grills however. There were two negative issues 1) The picnic table had been moved by other campers' to their area; however, the camp host was glad to rectify the issue and 2) Where we tent-camped, the train tracks were about 50 yards away and trains passed by what seemed like every 1 - 2 hours...on through the night as well. For that reason, we elected to not stay another night...and the reason for the Overall Experience rating. In the future, I would only stay if in a motor home...to help deaden the sounds of the trains.
