“Peregrine Pines is a beautiful, wooded, rustic campground surrounded by pine trees and dirt roads.”


Peregrine Pines Campground is a beautiful, wooded, rustic campground surrounded by pine trees and dirt roads. It is located on the northeast side of the base at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 

Check-in was quick and easy and the staff is very friendly and helpful. 

The gravel roads are narrow so just be aware if you have a big rig. There isn’t a place to turn around, but with pull thru spots and roads that loop throughout the campground, it’s easy to get around. (Just don’t turn down the wrong road, like I did, and expect to back up easily.)

The speed limit is a slow 4.5 mph, but it’s appropriate with the way the campsites are laid out and children playing in the area.

The train tracks are located about 1,000 feet from the edge of the east side of the campground and the train can be easily heard as it passes through. Fortunately the trains were infrequent and didn’t end up disturbing us.


Every campsite has full hookups with 50 amp electrical, water, and sewer. One thing to note is to make sure you have a water pressure regulator. When we were checking in, we were told that some people who were not using one, had their hoses explode because of the water pressure being so high!

Propane is available for purchase.


The campsites have picnic tables and charcoal grill stands for outdoor BBQ’s. 

The commissary and BX are a few miles up the road if you need groceries or other supplies. They also have a gas station, but no diesel available. 

Our site was conveniently located near the laundry facility and bathrooms. A code is needed to access the building which is given at check-in. It’s $1.50 per load to wash and $1.50 to dry. There is a quarter changing machine and soap to purchase next to the machines.

There’s a sand volleyball area, horseshoe pits, tetherball, frisbee golf, playground, and picnic pavilion within the campground area.




Dogs are to be kept on a leash and picked up after. They can’t be left alone outside due to the wildlife in the area and barking must be kept to a minimum.


When we made reservations, we asked for a site that had a relatively clear view of the north sky for Starlink. Most of the sites are covered in overhead shade trees, but there are a few sites that would accommodate a clear northern sky. 

We were able to get campsite 76 and had relatively decent Starlink access with a few occasional drops, mostly due to thunderstorms passing through the area.

Verizon was excellent and AT&T was registering very good as well.

We really liked Peregrine Pines as a secluded vacation spot in a nature setting. Smelling the fresh scent of pine trees every morning was relaxing and enjoying the peaceful quietness just added to the ambience of the campground.

The only thing that would keep it from being a perfect campground is the occasional train noise.

We would stay here again.
