We have been to Canon city many times to take the helicopter tour and go whitewater rafting. We had stayed at the crowded KOA. Never again!!! Prospectors is more open with way better family amenities that are free. My son spent the whole day today at the club house and on the bouncing pillow trampaline thing. We really like this... More

Our family stayed at the Prospector this weekend. We had a great time!! The owner Mike was super nice as well as all of the staff we had the pleasure to meet. We stayed in a cabin and it was clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. We are excited to come back soon and we're sorry the... More

We are tent campers, and selected Prospector's after reading reviews. This trip was mainly a destination for the children, and our first visit to an organized campground. The ladies in the office were wonderful - the campground is under new ownership and is being revived, but the employees at Prospector's is what brought my rating up from a 4 to... More

My mom and I stumbled across this place after a terrible experience at the Canon City Quality Inn and we couldn't have been happier! The experience was truly a pleasure from check-in to check-out and I highly recommend making Prospectors Campground a stop on any Colorado trip. The staff are all very down to earth and friendly, helpful to say... More

We spent 2 nights here in June on our big family vacation. The owners/management were soooo nice. My brother-in-law had to move to 4 different spots before they found one that the 50amp service was working. Because of the inconvenience, the owner comped their stay. Used the laundry and it was clean and worked well. Would stay here again. The... More

Thank you for being understanding, and working with us to get you situated in a better spot. It was a pleasure to have your family here. More

We came to CO to ride the train. No planning for the most part. No linens. No reservations. . Found Prospectors upon the advice of a local cafe. What a doll!! Sent us over to be absolutely spoiled!! Josie: see her for reservations. Set us up in #10 Cabin (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) w/ linens. Kitchen, microwave, stove, plates, cups, garbage bags.... More

Arrived late on Friday, no problem for Mike as he guided us down to a little pad among the trees and used his 4 wheeler to light up the place so we could back in without issue. We're new RV'ers so had no idea what to expect but found the campground full of friendly people. The sites were level, so... More

We researched (much review reading) ALL the campgrounds in the area prior to choosing; including KOA, Echo Canyon, Starlite, Mountain View, Royal View, etc. While each one had its niche that gave it reasons to try, Prospectors won the review showdown. After camping there this last weekend we had no regrets and plan on coming back. Here are three things... More

We stayed in Cabin #2. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cabins are rustic but comfortable. The new owners are very interested in making your stay an enjoyable one. The last couple of nights of our stay we had mountain lions that came through the camp after dark. Very close to Royal Gorge Park and a short drive... More
