We stayed in one of the vintage trailers and it was a great experience. Sylvia and Larry are amazing camp hosts, who really make you feel at home. The store is very well stocked, with lots of little extras available. The pool was clear and clean, and restrooms really clean. I loved all of the nostalgic props and would recommend... More

We pulled in to look at park. We needed a place to stay for the evening. We were greeted by a rude women. We asked if we could walk through and look at the park. She said no and offered to give us a brochure. The place was not well kept with weeds growing up around the trailers. Looks like... More

We brought our RV for a holiday weekend, it was really great. You can also rent the cabins they have or some vintage RV's. We had a good spot with some trees and good privacy. The owners Sylvia and Larry were always available with local information and really helped make our trip to the royal gorge great. The helicopter tours... More

We stopped for a night in Canon City to view the Roya Gorge and have extended our stay at the Starlite Campground. Sylvia is EVERYTHING a camp host should be...warm, friendly, helpful, happy to be here, and inviting! If you're in the Royal Gorge/Canon City area...The Starlite Campground is where you need to be!

This is a unique camping experience whether you choose to rent a classic trailer, a small cabin, or bring in a rig of your own. Each trailer is decorated in vintage style. The owners, Larry and Sylvia know how to make you feel like a welcome part of the family. Close to Royal Gorge, Helicopter rides, white water rafting and... More

I love this place! Unique, funky, true Americana right here... The trailers are all beautifully restored, decorated and stocked with vintage housewares. The cabins are cute andcomfy. The owners are super nice & helpful (unless you are not a registered guest & trespassing inappropriately), and they are always ready with a cold drink and a word of advice about seeing... More

My mother, daughter, and I stayed at the Starlite Classic Campground for two nights during their Classic Colorado Campout vintage trailer rally. I had my vintage 1969 RoadRunner camper trailer for my daughter and myself, and my mom stayed in one of the campground's vintage trailers available for rent (the 'Flamingo'). We had a fabulous time, the campground is located... More

We stayed one night in a retro camper,The Lucy. It had great vintage 1960s details and charm. The bathroom was a short walk away. Sylvia was welcoming and even gave us each a free game of vintage pinball while we waited out the rain to check into the unit. We played horseshoes and took a spin on the community bikes.... More

This is the cutest campground ever, but don't just wander onto the property! The lady who runs the place is the meanest person on the planet and she will literally run you over with her Segway to get you off the property. We weren't even trespassing... my friend was wanting to inquire about renting a place there. She got out... More

Dear GoldenMom80525, Thank you for taking the time to express yourself regarding my campground. I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience here. We have spent many hours and dollars in an effort to let visitors know what to expect. If you take just a moment to read (and follow) the signs at the entrance, you'll have an excellent... More

Tent camping is what we came to do.. We stayed two nights.. In number 12. traffic for tent camping was loud. Lots of park lighting. Very rustic.. Mini golf is more like ghetto golf.. Including the pool was a little bit scary... Nice staff they were wonderful.. We came for the kids but found ourselves away on the road exploring... More
