My family and I had been looking forward to visiting this national landmark all week. I had built anticipation in my children because as a kid, I remembered visiting the park and walking away very impressed. You can imagine my shock as we (2 adults, 4 children) paid 106.00 just to walk through the huge admission building. You would think... More

Loved the public camp sites! Some had covered shelters, which were great for us. We set up our tent underneath due to the rain. Each camp site has a fire pit with a metal grate for cooking. There are metal trashcans throughout and there was a bathroom near our campsite.

My wife who suffers from vertigo when faced with heights made it over the bridge and back with no issues and even had fun. Note, that the tram bus that drives over the bridge will cause it to shake which she didn't find too fun, but still made it and even laughed afterwards. The view is stunning and really worth...

I had been there as a kid and it seemed different. When I learned that the fire of 2013 had destroyed 90% of the park I could understand why. Hubby and I walked the bridge twice, once running as it started pouring rain. We loved how you can look down through the cracks in the wooden planks and see the... More

We enjoyed our time at Royal Gorge and the story about the fire and rebuilding process was great. We visited May 16, 2015.

Stopped by to check it out and was impressed on a wet and rainy day. The view is spectacular and the walk across the bridge was really a treat. The food in the cafe was also quite good. I would go back again.

Two years ago, fire sweep through the jumpers and pinons of the Royal Gorge Park. Most of the buildings were lost, but the magnificent bridge, constructed in 1929 stood strong. Today there is a new visitor's center, gondola and the highest zipline in the the country. Even though I have visited in the past, the Arkansas River canyon from 1,300... More

Really breath taking views. They facility is all new since the wildfire a few years ago. I really enjoyed the gondola ride ,but the bridge flexing in the wind is a weird feeling. It is a bit pricey at $80 for 4 of us. We did see wild big horn sheep feeding in the park and that was great,

3rd time to Royal Gorge but this time the renovated Gondola and main entrance is really nice. History of this bridge and the effort is awesome. Its a must visit place in Colorado. Only the incline train shutdown is disappointing but they are working on it.
