We took the caving 101 tour. What a blast. Our guide was very knowledable and fun. It would have been better if they provided equipment like the fairy caves in Colorado springs. My knees all bruised for not having knee pads and clothes are mess....More

We took a short self-guided driving tour but didn't have enough time to enjoy the full experience like we did nearly 20 years ago the last time we visited.

Very nice park- extremely crowded at times. One way traffic that helps with crowds. Great visitors center and lovely, but pricey, gift shop.

This is the most amazing park I have visited to date. It is majestic. The rock formations are unbelievably beautiful. You can hike, bike ride, jog, walk, rock climbing or just sit on a bench and enjoy nature. Our visit was truly awesome.

My first visit. Spectacular setting! We have to go back for more picture-taking! A tip would be to go there, but go mid-week, and avoid summer (crowds, and snakes).

We have visited here before during the summer, but this time we went in the spring. There were lots of people there that day, but probably because it was spring break. We were still able to find parking easily. The weather was a little cooler...More

Beautiful rock formations and walking trails. Although you can drive through, it’s much better to take the time to walk some the trails. I had about 2 hours so stopped in at the visitor centre first and got some great advice on a walking tour...More

When some of our other travel plans had to be rescheduled, we decided to visit Garden of the Gods. Great way to spend a free morning - walked around, took pictures, even saw a few mule deer.

Well worth a stop to see the formations. Did not stop at the visitor center on this trip but will in the future.

Took time to make stops several years ago so just enjoyed a late evening drive thru. More impressive if traveling into the mountains, than if you have already travelled thru the mountains. Free.

We had a hard time finding a spot mid-week in April, so I’d guess by June the park will be crazy-busy. I’d plan to leave your RV outside of the park and just go in on foot. The park is very accessible on foot.

You can get a trail map at the visitor center and they tell you their length and difficulty. We have done a lot of them with little kids as young as 5.

Not sure when there are least guests so sorry on that one! However you can take your own car through and there are lots of places to pull over and take photos. Not sure if the cost of horses etc as we didn’t do any of that... More
