I was referred to this campground by a local rafting company. No one was at the office when we arrived at 5:00pm which is fine...I understand it's Sunday and sometimes people need a break. Upon arriving we were greeted with multiple mid aged adults drinking and appear to actually live here. Splash pad was obviously clogged and run down, therefore... More

We were in Canon City for rafting and stayed in one of the cabins. The only issue we had was the size. It had two sets of bunk beds and a futon. We were a little cramped, but the price was right and the campground was great! The kids loved the pool, the launch pad, and the game area. My... More

Went to Canon City for family whitewater trip. Prospector was recommended by the rafting co. Many very long term "residents." Restrooms were clean, but we're out of order on second day. Pool was very dirty and splash pad was out of order both days. Foul language, a lot of alcohol, and theft of items by kids (only observed against other... More

Booked for 3 nights based off reviews... thanks for nothing Google and Trip Advisor... Site was small, not big enough for a 39' MH with slides. Amenities seem quite run down, splash pad looks like it's been there 10 years and is Sun bleached and wasn't running when we got there. The worst part are all the full-timers living there... More

We rented bunkhouse cabins 6 and 7 and camping space 66 for my daughter and new son-in-laws bachelor and bachelorette parties the night before their wedding. The RV park is nice. Parking is great with a lot of space. Bunkhouse cabin 7 has a curtain for the bathroom door. Bunkhouse Cabin 6 has a pocket door on the bathroom. The... More

We stayed here for the second time. This time it was early April. Since last year some of the cabins have had new porches and cabin #2 has a new deck installed on the one side. The interiors of the cabins have been themed. Staff was helpful and friendly. From the back of the campground you can see the Royal... More

One of the only parks in the area open in wintertime. 2 adults, 1 dog. You can't beat the view! We paid $525/mo with 50 amp full hookup. We stayed here for 2 months in our 5th wheel for vacation. Staff and residents were very friendly and felt a lot like a community. Had an issue with a neighboring dog... More

The star gazing at night was incredible no light pollution to get in the way. Close to the highway but you cant... More

We have about 5 couples with kids among out group of friends. This summer we took a trip to the Royal Gorge and stayed at Prospectors. IT WAS AWESOME! The very first moments out of the car, half the kids hopped on the 4 seater pedal carts and started zooming down the hills while the other half ran to the... More
