Monument Creek Glamping
6 sites · Lodging7 acres · Monument, ColoradoYour site is privately yours, whether it be a container home, a safari tent, or a pop-up. Outside your space is the rest of our 6.5 acre property: waterfowl, mule deer, hawks and eagles, flowers, and a beautiful flowing creek that you can wade through. We have both off-grid and on-grid facilities, and walking the property is encouraged. However, know that the space is shared with our family and other glampers.Private property "glamping" (short for "glamorous camping") minutes from Colorado Springs. Your safari tent comes furnished like a master bedroom, including queen bed, extended wifi, solar energy, deck with chairs, propane fire pit and grill. You'll be "roughing it" a little with outhouse and camp showers, and you may hear coyotes at night. The creek flows year round, deer and hawks and waterfowl are seen daily. Welcome to Monument Creek and to the "glamping" community!We also have our 20' container home which is called the "Cozy Qube," manufactured and trademarked by our son, Micah, a graduate from Lincoln Tech's Welding Academy in Denver. You will find most everything you need to enjoy a hotel-like studio visit. The Cozy Qubes have a simple-yet-open layout specifically designed for safe and "cozy" experiences for people who want a restful, semi-outdoor experience. The Monument/Colorado Springs area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Conveniently located along the Rampart Range of Colorado, your tent is nestled in a rural-residential homestead with a beautiful creek flowing through it (and you're welcome to explore!). A mile to the East is civilization (stores, shops, etc.), and a mile to the West is dense mountain forests (Pike National Forest). Public lakes are within a couple miles, and tons of tourist attractions a short drive away (Garden of the Gods, Air Force Academy, etc.).We provide towels, toilet paper, paper towels, and trash can liners. If you forget anything, Walmart is a two-mile drive, or just text us. We may have "forgetables" on hand to save you the trip. Be aware of AMENITY LIMITATIONS. Glamping is "glamorous," but it is still "off grid." To prepare for your stay, pay attention to the added notes below.A two-gallon water cooler will be full when you arrive. A shared water spigot is available a short distance from your site. The water is drawn from our property's well (not city water). Fill your water cooler and camp showers as much as you want.A Davis Tent Royal Throne Outhouse™ is set up with a Cabela's Camp Commode™. Toilet paper and freshener are stocked. Two solar shower bags are available to use, and we suggest filling them the night before and let the morning sun heat them up. If you really want to escape camping and get a private 10+ minute hot shower, a Pilot station is just a few miles drive to the Baptist Road exit on I-25.A two-burner grill with a side burner and kettle for heating water. The grill has everything you'd expect with a grill (tongs, spatulas, etc.) and we include a cast-iron pan to cook with. We include a few paper plates and utensils to use up, but we recommend you bring your own picnic supplies to meet your individual needs.We are living family life up the hill in the main house, but someone may be available to come help you with anything onsite. We are friendly people who love to meet our guests, but we also will respect your space and your privacy. We will never enter your tent during your stay. Always feel free to message us with questions or concerns.
