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

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

My 8 year old son and I had a great stay in cabin #1! There is a great playground for kids, and a huge "jumping pillow" - excellent fun for an 8 year old. The cabin had one room with a bunk bed (full size on the lower bunk, twin on the top) with a small bathroom - including a... More

My wife, and 4 kids took about 4 days to hang out at Prospectors and enjoy the area around the Royal Gorge. We chose Prospectors because when I made some calls, Rhonda (co-owner), was incredibly friendly and helpful and made it easy to say "yes." When we rolled up to our little cabin the kids (11,9,6,2) could hardly contain themselves.... More
