We arrived and all the campsites were full but in the same location, garden of the gods, is a backpackers parking lot. You can park here and carry your gear a slight ways down the Indian point loop. There are lots of slightly cleared areas along the trail big enough to set up a tent or hang hammocks.

We arrived at 3pm on a Friday during May and half the sites were already taken. We settled into site #2 which is fairly secluded with one campsite next door but separated by vegetation and 2 sites across the road but separated by a decent distance. A developed canopy of tall pines provided plenty of shade. Site #12 would have been our first choice for seclusion but we were pleasantly surprised by the seclusion at #2. Vault toilets were very clean and a crank style water pump was available, however it did take a long time to pump a substantial amount just for doing dishes. The large gravel driveway provided a fairly flat surface to park our popup. No electric hookups. Garden of the gods observation trail is in walking distance. We walked this trail during the day on Friday and ran into a couple other parties. It was jam packed on Saturday though. We heard plenty of motorcycles on Saturday also, but other than that the site is fairly quiet. We picked up about half a Walmart sack of trash on trails but very little in the campground itself. Nearest gas/food/firewood is maybe a half hour away.
