We went at least two or three times during our trip. The scenery was breathtaking! Lots of things to see! Family and pet friendly. Even have pet stations to grab waste bags with little waste baskets.

Beautiful place to explore some stunning rock formations. Paved paths make this an easy walk. Nice areas for the kids to climb and explore. Don't miss the general store. Overpriced as expected but quite large with some beautiful things.

There are very few bears in that area. It is a well-known tourist attraction, but there is no camping right in the Garden of the Gods. Therefore, food is not left in campsites to attract bears. It is a beautiful place to... More
