Welcome from Southern Illinois. As far as tips go, you came to the right place.

My only tip is to keep your initial spending for items to "must haves" until you get your feet wet. We used items from the house to supply the camper and spent the money on new stuff for the house.

Investigate and invest in power protection so a bad electrical system in a campground does not cost you unwanted expenses.

You have got a lot to learn and this place is a good start. Keep asking questions.

Welcome. Love your area and will be coming your way in June. Thinking of staying at the KOA off 25. Do you have any suggestions?

Cheyenne Mountain State Park is another option local to Colorado Springs. Some availability in June, just depends on travel dates.

Mueller State Park is our go-to option from Colorado Springs, 45 min away depending on traffic.
