How to Nail The Perfect Campdeck Experience

Epic memories await

Relax in your hammock and read a book, sleep under the stars, and wake up to sweeping views of Downtown Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak. Our camp deck is an unforgettable camping experience.

Your own personal campsite includes a private bathroom, speaker hook ups, and views of Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain, and downtown Colorado Springs. No bear spray needed. Bring your own camping gear or reach out to rent from us! ⁠

How to nail down the perfect campdeck experience? We got you. Step by step, this is your campdeck guide on how to make your experience great to stellar.

Let’s do it:

Step 1: Load up the goods.⁠

Remember, this is an all outdoor glamping site (except for the bathroom). Pack like you’d be camping outdoors! We are talking a tent, sleeping bags, clothes for the weather, a cooler, camping chairs, snacks and water. No need to pack bear spray here!

Step 2: Pitch a tent! Set up your campsite.⁠

Settle in! We recommend pitching a tent closer to the bathroom, and leaving the space by the balcony for chairs so you can soak in the mountain views. Plus, fewer steps if you have to use the facilities in the middle of the night

Step 3: Play some vibey tunes.

That’s right - we have a bluetooth speaker connection for surround sound. Glamping to the next level. Throw on some John Denver and get groovin’.

Step 4: Explore your surroundings

Exploring your surroundings allows you to get to know the mountains, try something new and make friends with the locals.

  • North Cheyenne Cañon Park - 1,600 acres with tons of hiking trails

  • South Catamount Reservoir - epic spot for some high altitude fishing or stand up paddleboarding

  • The Crags - On the way to the granite dome, you’ll pass quaking aspens, red rocks, creeks, wildflowers, tall pines and more. Only about 5 miles round trip, this is a perfect hike for locals and out-of-town travelers. About an hour from Kinship!

  • CityROCK - Cold or rainy out? This indoor climbing gym in Downtown Colorado Springs has your solution.

Step 5: Take a piping hot shower

Unlike other glamping sites, this one has a private toilet, sink and walk-in shower. Take advantage of the heated bathroom and suds up after a long day out adventuring. Cozy Brooklinen towels await.

Step 6: Wake up to the sun rising over the Rocky Mountains.⁠

We suggest warming up with a cup of Coffee or Tea (ask from desk for in room coffee or grab a hot cup of joe from Homa Cafe + Bar) and taking advantage of sunrise over the Rocky Mountains. Take a deep breath. This is the best time to take a little “you” time.


Epic memories await! Whether you’re pitching a tent for the first time or a camping veteran, our campdeck won’t disappoint.

How to Travel Sustainably

Check out the ways we are eco-friendly!

When dreaming up Kinship Landing, we aimed to create a building, a business, and a community that is committed to striving towards ever increasing measures of environmental sustainability. It was and is one of the ways we hope to slowly have an impact on the whys and the ways people travel. It’s not always easy, and we have a long way to go. 

With community as one of our five core values, we understand our relationship and interactions with our planet will impact our future. From vacation decisions to development standards, eco-conscious practices and decisions are critical in order to ensure thriving generations to come.

From sustainable focused design, locally sourced food at Homa Cafe + Bar, conscious development decisions, to recycling bins in every room, we are always striving to work towards an increasingly eco-friendly lifestyle. 

The basics: 

We've worked with our local creative community of architects, designers, artists, restaurateurs, and craftspeople who have poured their heart and soul into every last detail at Kinship. Supporting local businesses reduces transportation costs, minimizes labor and material, and invests in the places that we call home. Here are some of the basic ways we are working towards a more sustainable hotel:

  • We recycle

  • Source locally - from our food to our laundry, reducing transportation emissions

  • Reuse dishware and other standard "consumables" such as in room coffee cups, eliminate plastics and paper when possible (metal trays, post consumer recycled cardboard to go containers, no key cards due to contactless check in)

  • Use quality materials that last longer

  • Have tons of plants to up the indoor air quality

  • Incentivize walking and biking for guests

Location & Construction

We designed a more efficient building footprint and rooms resulting in less material, impact, consumption, and carbon footprint per guest. We used natural materials wherever possible, like concrete, wood, and stucco over vinyl flooring, plastic siding, and poly-based material. 

Our room window size and locations were designed according to the paths of the sun, reducing the need for a light switch.

Rather than developing green land and expanding the urban area, we built our hotel on an infill site to reduce urban expansion, making walking and biking easy and fun.

We are within walking distance to:

  • Downtown Colorado Springs

  • The US Olympic & Paralympic Museum

  • Many art galleries

  • Weidner Soccer Field

  • Locally owned boutiques

  • Locally owned fitness boutiques & spas

  • Restaurants, bars, breweries & nightlife

Future Goals

Build the building to be able to accommodate sustainable infrastructure as tech and our capacity develops.

Treat travelers like family

We like to say “travel like a local” while at Kinship. Not only is it fun to be folded into the fam, but it’s well understood that ownership of something translates to better care for that thing. When the deep sense of ownership is shared with and embraced by visitors, you see more conscious, long term decisions being made, and more vibrant memories being treasured. 

Smply asking the question “how can I make my trip more sustainable” will go a long way. A simple decision like walking instead of driving, dining in instead of ordering take out, leveraging rideshare opportunities, and leaving no trace when exploring the outdoors are all ways you can travel with sustainability in mind and help to protect our future.

We are constantly investing in sustainability, and hope you feel the difference.
