  • You sort of have to work to find this place, but it is amazing!! An incredible collections of insects, etc. Well worth a visit. By the way, the "one star reviews seen in a couple of the reviews are for the RV Park not the museum. The museum is awesome.
  • I get many opportunities to visit various RV parks by having a traveling job. From my experiences, Golden Eagle Campground is one of the greatest! It's a family owned business and they love what they do! From office to grounds keeper, everyone is like a friend. The location is astounding with extraordinary hiking trails as well as a stocked lake. I love this place and pretty much come back every summer.
  • The bug collection is incredible, I've never seen such a collection. It is in a small rundown building that serves a campground.
  • It is an awesome place with very interesting insects to see.
  • amazing collection of insects ! "Like every bug in the world is there!!!

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
