On week-ends Black Forest Glider association (on the field) flies gliders and you can go for a glider ride if that is on your bucket list. Were between Colo Springs and Denver so are in the middle of the attractions.

Were retired so time arriving, or leaving isn't a problem.
asking for a $5 a day donation if using air conditioner or Ele heat only.

Access Road Conditions

Last 1-1/2 miles are gravel, sometimes a little rough or wash boards. I suggest unhooking the toad before starting the gravel. There is a turnaround at the start of the gravel so plenty of room to unhook.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

You might want to unhook toad before hitting the gravel, plenty of room on the road at the start of the gravel to unhook and hook up again.

The spot was beautiful. The he hosts are great. The surrounding areas are pleasing to look at and the small aircraft including gliders was a very special treat. Thank you. And we will stay here again.

Unique location & GREAT hosts!

We really had no idea what to expect with the location and airfield etc but upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised! Perfect set up for our rather large 35’ 5th wheel. We were able to plug in and open our slides with no problems. Was fun to watch the planes and gliders as well as the amazing sunsets! Our hosts even had us for dinner one night and we were able to share some of our Amador County wine! We highly recommend and since we have kids close by, we will be back!

Unique Experience at an Airpark

We wanted to get out of town for the weekend and hit the jackpot! Beautiful area only 45 min from our home across from an airstrip. We were fascinated watching gliders and small planes come and go. Our hosts were warm, welcoming and we delighted in their stories and experiences. A peaceful experience!

Outstanding hospitality

We were moving to Colorado and had two days until we could move into new home. They let us stay even though they had a family get-together planned. They even invited us to join but we were too exhausted. Our only regret was not having more time and energy to get to know them better. Thank you very much!

Beautiful skies.

Very welcoming hosts, having an electric and water hook up was great too. The skies here are incredible! Beautiful sunsets ever night, go to watch the storms move in, and even saw a few rainbows!

Relaxing & beautiful location and great hosts.

We spent 3 nights here & took day trips to local attractions. As a pilot, the airpark was a treat to watch airplanes & gliders. Our hosts were great and made us feel at ease. We chatted planes & RV-ing and were even able to take care of a few minor maintenance details on our Jeep.
Would definitely enjoy staying here again!

Brief but Great Stopover

Flniehus have a beautiful location, with views of Pikes Peak. They were very kind hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. We shared a nice chat upon arrival, during which they offered food and drink, and we found that they are friends with some boondockers we stayed with two years ago, small world!

Thank you so much for hosting us, all the best.

Great hosts!

We loved these folks! We were able to come a day early to beat a winter storm and hunker down. We arrive while the sun was still shining and were invited to a bbq right away! During the storm we were invited to have chili and watch the Bronco game...very welcoming!
Wonderful conversations and they are a wealth of information.
Enjoyed our time very much and hope to stay again sometime... Hopefully in better weather! 😊👍

Our Stay With flniehus.

Boondockers really needs to give more than three choices to classify a stay experience. Our stay with these hosts rates so much higher than just merely positive, it is hard to quantify. These are the very best hosts anyone could possibly expect. By the time we left, we really didn't want to, we were so much more than just host and guest. We felt that we connected on a very personal level. These hosts went so far beyond what is expected that we felt we have developed a friendship that will transcend Boondockers. Our invitation to flniehus is open and we hope that they will contact us soon so that we can reciprocate. We would enjoy hosting them any time. Thanks for the great conversations, thanks for sharing family stories, thanks for sharing your friends. Thanks for everything you did to make us feel welcome.

Peace of the Heavens

Wonderfully welcome, kind and engaging hosts! Fascinated as Host taxied his plane to the back of his house to meet. Has a fantastic large attached hanger in this air-park community in eastern CO. We visited for hours about family, business, planes, and of course Boondocking and traveling. He was very knowledgeable with great tips and I throughly enjoyed our conversation. His wife worked late so mostly chatted with her the next morning as she invited me to join them for breakfast. Overall a great environment, friendly people and beautiful peaceful views. Thoroughly appreciated level space w electricity & water - and offeredme use of their "dump sewer" location. Only wish I could have stayed one more night to learn more about these great folks! Heartily RECCOMEND! JT

Amazing Stay with a Great Couple!

We were lucky enough to be the very first boondockers here! Frank and Lynn were so welcoming to me and my family (wife, niece, and two young daughters). We are in our third week of our one-year RV trip across country, and arrived tired already from being on the go. Frank showed us his awesome hanger with his two airplanes, F350, truck-camper, and other amazing toys. That first night, and the entire next day, we talked and had the privilege of getting to know them. We also got a lot of needed down time. We had dinner together the next two nights, and they told us about some of their many travels. Frank gave us tons of RV tips that are going to help us out the whole year. Lynn was so sweet to our three-year-old, Lily, who constantly asked to go in her house and then asked her for every snack saw. Their home and land is beautiful, and we heard about their wonderful family. We saw airplane gliders taking off from their community's airfield for hours on our first full day. Frank and Lynn even gave us candy-filled eggs to hide around their yard, so our girls could have an Easter hunt. They had so much fun! The home is right between Denver and Colorado Springs, and we toured Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, and other sites. We were sad to say goodbye this morning to this gracious, generous couple. We hope to see them again soon in our travels or theirs. Thank you, Lynn and Frank!!
