Fort Carson Military Relocation
Fort Carson, “The Mountain Post,” is located just south of Colorado Springs at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The unparalleled beauty and mild climate of Colorado Springs make it a gateway to a wide variety of outdoor activities. Many internationally known ski areas and some of the nation’s most scenic parks and finest hunting and fishing areas are within a short drive. Fort Carson Families have easy access to the many cultural attractions of “The Springs” and the bright lights of nearby Denver.
Fort Carson is one of two installations designated by the Army to achieve “net zero” energy, water and waste by 2020. As part of a net zero installation community, Soldiers, Family members and staff all play a part in conserving water and energy and reducing, reusing and recycling waste to achieve these goals.
