Visiting family in Colorado Springs and stopped for the tour. We enjoyed it immensely, especially the chapel. The docent in the main chapel was full of information. She told us a lot about the Catholic floor when we asked. We also really enjoyed the video.

We enjoyed our visit to the visitors center and walking around the chapel. The 20 minute "movie" in the visitor center is great to watch. You see what a cadet's life is like. My 13 and 10 year old enjoyed the movie too. We left...More

Beautiful and spacious campus and a great place to meet some of our dedicated Air Force Personnel. We stayed at the FamCamp on base which is limited in who they allow to camp but if you qualify, it is one of America's most beautiful campgrounds....More

It depends on how big your RV is. I don't believe there is room in the visitor center parking lot for a large RV. There probably is room at the PX shopping center, but it is some way from the visitor center. Not sure if they... More
