“No good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

My stay at this resort was very disappointing. The lady at the desk was rude at all times of the day, and talked badly about other guests. The owner was walking around and seemed to be drunk and very violent with people, and used strong profanity. The campground was however clean, just not the type of place I would take my family again. I will never recommend this place too anyone. There are plenty of other places near by

Wow!!! This person was very unhappy with me. This person is a raft guide that is friends with 6 other raft guides that I had to evict for disrespecting our property. Being raft guides they should know how to act in public. Their eviction took place on July 26 this review was done on Monday the 29th. On July 24th these guides were smoking pot by our public pool. They were informed that it was illegal to smoke pot at a public facility, after a brief argument they left our property-good. The next day they returned and put their dog in the pool. Dogs are not allowed in a public pool. I told them to get the dog out of the pool and they left. Later that night after hours they brought non guests after hours to use the hot tub. I evicted them the next day. They can write all the fraudulent reviews that they want and I will reply with the truth and their dirt. I believe that any and all of these disrespectful actions should be grounds for eviction. I work very hard to offer a fun and good experience to our family orientated guest. Mike the owner.

Plenty of activity between adventures at Prospectors RV Resort at Canon City, CO. Nice clean place. Stayed in cabin and well worth it if no RV in trail. Everything available here. mike and Family are great hosts to your camping needs. The Royal Gorge Bridge is just across the front office clearly in good sight with a great view of the Colorado MOuntains.

We stayed three nights in cabin #7 and found it to be exactly as described on the website. We're not "campers" (but thought we'd try it!) so we were pleased it was clean and maintained. Our arrival was a bit stressful since there isn't good cell service in the area (for our GPS) and we were arriving after 10 pm (dark mountain roads!), but once we got there, everything was in place exactly as Renee said it would be. The kids LOVED the jumping pillow....definitely a highlight! The owners were helpful and friendly, the campground was very quiet (we felt bad unpacking at 10 pm since it was so quiet!), and it's a beautiful area. Wish the splash pad would have been running, but we were too busy doing other things to need it (and maybe they would have turned it on if we'd said something). Overall a pleasant experience. :)

We are so pleased that your visit to Prospectors RV Resort was a great one. Sorry to hear that you were unable to enjoy the splash pad. :( I would like to inform you that it is working, and we have even rebuilt it this season, to make it better, safer, and more fun for your next visit.
Thanks again.

We stayed at the "resort" on July 8th and 9th. It was a very disappointing experience. We were tent camping. Thankfully, the campsite was almost empty other wise we would have been camping right on top of other people-the sites were so close together. When we checked in I was barely greeted by a less than enthusiastic young lady. The campground did not match the photos shown on their website - things are not nearly as nice as pictured. My husband said the men's bathroom was nasty. Someone had cut their hair one morning, the next day in the afternoon the hair was still covering everything. We needed change for the laundry room and even though it was early in the evening the office was locked and no one was to be found. The game room was locked, the pool was freezing cold even though the temps were close to 100. We so wanted to love our Colorado camping adventure. This was not the place to do that.

We, at Prospectors RV Resort, are so disappointed to read about your experience in our park. I would like to inform you that the park is under new ownership, as of May 22nd, 2014, and we are well underway making major improvements. We have set office hours, and are ALWAYS available after hours for your camping needs. The bathrooms are maintained twice daily. The sites are getting spruced up, and more clearly defined boundaries. Those are just a few of the things we are up to. I understand that you may not be regular visitors to the Royal Gorge area, but hope that if you ever are in the area, you come out to try us again. We would be happy to discount your stay for your efforts. Thanks for your time.

My family along with some friends spent just over a week at this resort. They have just a few cabins but lots of space for RVs and tent camping. The owners were very good to us by providing us with directions, setting up and driving us on a tubing excursion, making sure we had some free movies for our daughter to watch at our cabin. The grounds have a nice play area for kids and kids at heart! We would definitely go back if traveling back to this area of Colorado.

Room Tip: Cabin #10 is the only cabin that has a TV, just FYI!

We rented cabin #2. It was nice and very comfortable! Mike & Renee also made my husbands trip by getting the UFC fight at the club house! Thanks again. While my husband watched the fight we enjoyed the game room. We played music on the jukebox and played ping pong, pool, and a bowling game! They also had several activities planned for the families but the rain didn't make it possible. They remind me of the Yogi Bear parks!

NO FIRES, NO SMOKE, NO MUD, & NO CRAZY CROWDS! The evening showers are greening things up nicely now! We loved it here and had a great, quiet space for our RV #18. We walked the entire RV & Campmgrounds and realized Prospectors had some great RV & Camp sites. They even have cabins! The owners are very friendly & helpful... The small store & gift shop is stocked with everything you might need. We also visited the Winery & the Prison Museum. Enjoyed them both. We relaxed at our camp site but also took in a relaxing lunch at 8 Mile Bar & Grill. Very clean, great food, very friendly service & great prices.
If you do bring the kids, this place has a great pool, hot tub, water park, arcade, and a giant jumping pillow!
Get down there now and support the businesses that have suffered from the fires earlier in the summer. There are plenty of fun things to do besided walking on the Royal Gorge Bridge!

Ron & Heather

Room Tip: Plenty of Full Service RV Sites here! Some amazing Tent sites too.
