When we drove into the Lone Duck campground, we thought "what are we getting into?"
The campers were pack in very close together. We went ahead and stopped at the office and I am glad we did. The staff was very friendly and helped us to find a campsite that would fill our needs - 3 nights with electric. There were very few campsites to choose from. The campsite we found was a little uneven but we were able to get set up.
We found the bathrooms clean, the showers free, the laundry clean and all the machines worked. The best part was the $4 breakfast of pancakes, sausage, juice, and coffee. It was all you can eat.
Another advantage was the campground location. We were able to see all the sites we wanted around Colorado Springs without driving a long distance.
Overall the campground was well maintained, it was quiet at night except for the traffic on the highway nearby, the WiFi worked even in our camper, and the owners were very friendly and treated us like family.
We will be staying right here again when we get back to this area.

We found this to be a good campground for families with kids as there are lots of them here. They do have a very nice pool and playground for kids. We spent two nights camping and one night in one of their cabins.

Camping - sites are very close together and depending where your site is you will have people walking through your site at night. Also quiet time is 10pm; however on Saturday night the people camping behind us were partying way past midnight.

Cabins - nice and clean with a double bed and a set of bunk beds. There is a mini frig and microwave in the cabin as well.

Showers and bathrooms - there are three showers and three bathroom stalls for men and the same for women. This is for the entire campground. They were clean however they did have a lingering odor. Trying to use the restroom or shower in the morning was nearly impossible. They definitely need to add more showers/restrooms for the size of this campground.

Also the campground is downhill from a major road and during the night you can hear trucks and cars driving on the highway.

We camped six nights at Lone Duck campground this July. We were originally booked for five but decided to stay an extra night because we were not ready to leave. This place is perfect for our family. We camped with friends and had five kids between the ages of 2 and 8 in our group.
The pool is the cleanest pool we've ever been in! No hotel or resort has ever had a pool this clean. The kids loved it. There was a splash pad for the little ones and a great deck with lounge chairs for the adults.
The kids also enjoyed the playground, trout pond and arcade. On two rainy afternoons we went into the main lodge and the kids watched television on the big couch while the adults played cards.
We made use of the laundry facilities, dish cleaning station, hot showers, basketball court and pancake breakfast. They also have free hot coffee each morning and a popcorn machine that gets fired up each afternoon. The owners of this campground are very nice. They were very accomodating and are very knowledgeable about the area and what it has to offer. They take great care of the grounds. After each rain their were out moving dirt, picking up brush and pumping water off of the playground.
We were on a tent site that sat right next to the mountain stream. Some reviews mentioned noise from the road traffic being a problem. It never bothered us. At night, the sound of the stream drowned it all out.
We hiked Red Rock Canyon and spent an afternoon in downtown Manitou Springs. You are just minutes from lots of things to do if you wish to leave the campground but for the most part, our group was totally entertained staying at the Lone Duck.
We will definitely camp at Lone Duck again would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Tent sites 19-28 were on a deadend. Perfectly situated by the stream and most were shaded.

We stayed at Lone Duck for 2 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer! It was a great campground that was definatly geared toward families. Our kids, ages 11 and 3, loved it. The playground was wonderful and the fishing pond was great. I felt very safe allowing the kids to go to the playground and play with the new friend they had made. We didn't get to use the pool because we ran out of time each day but it looked very nice and it was very warm. The owners were so warm and friendly and the facilities were very clean. The camping spaces were plenty roomy and the fire pits were great. We will definatly be back to stay at Lone Duck!
