Colorado Springs, Colorado

There are campgrounds and RV parks in Colorado Springs and more in the surrounding area.

William Jackson Palmer, a civil war general incorporated Colorado Springs in 1872 with a view to making it a high-class resort community, an idea endorsed by his friend and business associate, Dr. William Bell. Bell's English connections provided a source of income for the creation of the community and the railroad that provided access for the American and international visitors seeking the high altitude and sunshine. The nearby Colorado City was a complete contrast to the rather sedate and dignified community which Palmer and Bell envisioned. There were many saloons, and gun fights broke out frequently among the silver and gold miners in the volatile atmosphere.

The Four Continents Figure Skating Competition 2012 was held in Colorado Springs, home to both the United States Figure Skating Association and the United States Olympic Training Center. Besides figure skating, a number of other national sports associations have their headquarters in the city.

The US Military provides the largest percentage of jobs through its army and air force bases which are located on the north, east and south borders of the city. The various installations include training grounds, headquarters for a Special Forces group, headquarters for Air Force Space Command and a center for Army space and Missile Defence Command and Army Strategic Command. As well, the headquarters for United States Northern Command and the master control station for the Global Position System, including the US Naval Observatory Alternate Master Clock which synchronizes the GPS satellite time are located here.
