Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Only 70 miles from Colorado Springs, the campground is located in the old ranching west, a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, fly tying, barbecuing (and napping in the forest).
The campground's staff can help you arrange rafting, jeep tours, horseback riding, and mountain climbing excursions within an hour of the ranch. You can also take a day trip into the Sangre de Cristo wilderness.
The town of Westcliffe, where the campground is located, is perfectly situated for all kinds of day trips to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, Royal Gorge, Lake Pueblo State Park and the Monarch Mountain ski area.
Don't miss a visit to Bishop’s Castle, about 28 miles southeast of Westcliffe: resident Jim Bishop has been building this free and visitor-ready medieval masterpiece by hand since 1969.
