Cloud Camp at The Broadmoor


Stepping into another world might be a fictional aspiration, but stepping above the world is a real possibility when you visit Cloud Camp at The Broadmoor in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado. I envisioned a getaway filled with wonder, the wilderness, and a travel story that could rival the wildest destinations. And, I’m happy to report that Cloud Camp delivers on all these aspects and more.

Ascend to Adventure

Nestled 3,000 feet above The Broadmoor resort and a staggering 9,000 feet above sea level, Cloud Camp offers a unique, all-inclusive luxury experience within Cheyenne Mountain. It boasts several awards since its 2014 opening, including the prestigious Forbes Five Star and AAA Five-Diamond titles. Cloud Camp opens its doors to everyone, welcoming couples, families, groups, and solo travelers to experience this piece of heaven.

Elevated Accommodations

With three distinct lodging choices, there’s a perfect option for every visitor and occasion, ensuring a great night’s sleep. The western-themed decor throughout the resort conjures a sense of rustic charm and historical nostalgia. In the Main Lodge, guests can select from seven rooms including four guestrooms, a spacious guest suite with a parlor, a first-floor room that meets ADA requirements, and an enviable honeymoon suite.

Eleven one- or two-bedroom cabins lie just steps away, each boasting a private porch with breathtaking views. Then, there’s the crowning jewel, the Fire Tower Suite, offers an intimate and thrilling experience, accessible via a steep trek from the Main Lodge and standing on the site of a historical fire tower. The effort to reach it rewards you with unparalleled views and an unparalleled romantic atmosphere.

Culinary Delights

Cloud Camp’s tasting experience is something to behold. Their offerings are incredible and available at any hour—breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and snacks—with a variety of options and generous portions.

Guests can savor breakfast and lunch in the dining room or on the patio, and dinner presents an opportunity to indulge in specially curated dishes by celebrated chefs. Every evening, the camp hosts five-course dinners at a beautifully crafted thirty-seat table, reviving the communal dining experience from the 1920s Golden Age.

In Balance

The camp offers unlimited options, whether you’re looking for rest and relaxation, retail therapy, or a bit of excitement. As someone who loves nature, I appreciate Cloud Camp’s balance of outdoor activities and entertainment. Their well-planned daily schedule includes yoga, guided hikes in Pike National Forest, mule rides, archery, crafting, cooking, cocktail clubs, and a social hour.

For those seeking unscheduled fun, the camp provides yard games, board games, pickleball courts, and lake and pool swimming that guests can enjoy at their leisure. And for me, the best feature is the vast sky of stars, which you can enjoy beside a cozy fire, in a hot tub, or through the window of your cabin.

Access to Amenities

I understand that sometimes a spa day, shopping spree, or golf round is essential to complete a getaway. So, you might be happy to find out that Cloud Camp has shuttles ready to transport you to The Broadmoor, where a world-class spa, numerous retail outlets, and two iconic golf courses await. Leave your car where it is, and let someone else do the driving for a change.

Legacy and Luxury

The Broadmoor’s founder, Spencer Penrose, who built the road leading to the top of Cheyenne Mountain, left a legacy. Now, nearly a century later, Cloud Camp stands on the same site as the historic lodge he pioneered.

The staff at Cloud Camp are deeply invested in your experience, providing unmatched hospitality and catering to every desire. And don’t overlook the journey up to the resort itself; whether by shuttle, on a 3.2-mile hike, or riding a mule, your ascent builds the anticipation for what awaits.
