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
