The folks who run Prospectors are really friendly and super nice. We enjoyed our cabin and there are lots of things to do -- especially for the kids! It's a great area to explore and this is a nice place to do it from. My son can't wait to go back!

We met several friends at Prospectors for a long weekend. The cabins were such a nice way to kick your feet up and relax. Our days were filled with Canyon city fun, the Royal Gorge, ATV's, etc.. But our evenings were almost just as fun. The kids would either be jumping on the giant pillow, swimming or at the game... More

If you aren't looking for luxury, and want a place to put your stuff and sleep at night, the cabins here are great. Wood cabins with bathrooms, a small kitchen, and beds, its the perfect place to stay when you'll be out all day in the wilderness.

The first call I made was to a lady Josie. She was so incredible. Not only did she find a way to accommodate my wife 2 kids AND our family member with four legs in a perfect cabin. She also booked several activities. The Prospectors know all the great folks around...near and far. Josie booked ATV up the divide. 2... More

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

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

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
