If you appreciate nostalgia, incredible mountain views, clean amenities, and wonderful hosts (owners), then this is the place to stay! We made last minute plans to stay here when we were visiting the Royal Gorge, and we are so happy that we did. Their collection of vintage campers is extremely cool. We were greeted by the owner with a huge... More

Convenient to the Royal Gorge! Owners are super friendly and very accommodating. Restrooms are immaculate and functioning. Camp store is well stocked with essentials. Would definitely stay here again! Their website is awesome too! If not tenting look for sites along the far edge (43/44/45)...they have more privacy than the others.

This place is such a gem. Vintage trailers rented out along with cabins camping and tents we ended up staying longer because we enjoyed so much! The owners are totally retro and nice! Not to mention some of the hardest working folks I've ever met. This place is a must stay!

We stayed in cabin 6 and it was exactly as described on the website. The weather was cool enough that night so no air conditioner was necessary. The bathroom/ shower facilities were very clean. The owners were great and very accommodating. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back soon!

The kids enjoyed the pool, campfires and bikes that are available to ride around the grounds. The owners were great, helpful and fun to be around. Even though the... More

Stayed in Sally which was cute as could be. Really nice owners....Slyvia works hard for your comfort. Bath house was very clean! Campsites are... More
