Missile Silo Park Reviews & Ratings
Really great place! Ruben, the park ranger was very helpful, kind and courteous! My tent blew over in one side when I was not there and him and another camper tied it up so it wouldn't get damaged any more! We couldn't be more pleased with that kindness from a stranger! Thank you Ruben wherever you may be!
Site is closed through the end of September 2019 (at the earliest) for construction (not a private party as some have complained about). Nice location with beautiful views, at a decommissioned atlas-E missile site. It will reopen when work is complete. Be patient.
Good views of Windsor and severance area. Beautiful view of the mountains. Camping available seasonally.
This is a nice campground but the management has really gone downhill. We don't camp there at all anymore because $20 is a bit excessive for the amenities offered. Only one faucet where you can get drinking water. Recently my husband rode our motorcycle out there to check the availability and price of using the RV dump. It was open and price $5. Two days later when we drove out to use the dump; there was a sign posted on the road saying that the campground was closed for a "private party" and the dump was also closed. I don't know how you can have a private party for a COUNTY facility anyway. There must have been advance notice that they would be closing the place so there COULD have been a sign notifying the general public who rely on this place to dump our RV tanks of a pending closing for a private party. Who pays for the taxes that keep this place open?
Great views and nice campsites - we really enjoyed it. The only negative was a group of people partying until 2:00 AM on a Monday, but we may have just gotten unlucky.
