Nice staff and clean shower and restroom facilities and a great location close to Royale Gorge and Cañon City. Outdoor games available if you have time to play. Nice spacious campsites with views of the mountains.
I visited Echo Canyon for the second time this past fall and am already planning another trip! Last time I stayed in their amazing cabins and this past trip we stayed in one of their glamping tents which was so fun! We went rafting with them again and had a great lunch at their restaurant. I have been rafting all over CO and this is by far the best place with the nicest staff and guides! We can't wait to come back again this summer!
We settled for a 2-night "glamping" experience at Echo Canyon Campground and have no regrets. This was a different (bit not necessarily unique) experience and we're glad to have given it a try What I liked: Echo Canyon campground is a good base for those wanting to enjoy the outdoor activities that Canon City has to offer (rafting, ziplining, local attractions, Royal Gorge Bridge). There are two dining options on the other side from the campground site and it is still relatively close to Canon City (roughly a 10 minutes drive). So, great location. We had a double tent. The tent itself is very spacious and we had no issues storing our luggage. Ceiling is high, the decor is nice (antler ceiling), everything is well maintained. Lighting options were good and there are plenty of electrical outlets in the tent. The outside has a small patio and a separate seating ares featuring a small table and chair and a fire pit. A basic "fire kit" is provided. We had a pretty wicked thunderstorm one night and the tents are perfectly waterproof! The bedding was quite comfortable. Temperature control was ok - but not perfect. Reception staff are really nice and accomodating and will do whatever they can to help you. The campground has a laundry room which was a nice surprise for us. The bathroom/shower facilities are in a central building, located relatively close to the glamping area. Nice views of the surrounding mountains at sunrise What to watch for/could be improved: ...your wallet. The glamping tents are not cheap. Also, our tent was pretty close to Highway 50 so traffic was noisy at times. There was also a concert at one of the restaurant one night and it took a while for us to . Part of the concept of glamping is to be in the "wilderness" and in a quiet area... not so much there All in we are glad that we tried the glamping tents @ Echo Canyon Campground. It wasn't cheap but overall, we felt it was worth it. I would recommend it for those looking for a different experience while travelling in the area…
Great tents. Great view. Fun fire pits. A clean, comfortable experience. Highly recommended. Highway can be a it noisy. Great food options across it. Easy access to the Gorge which is very family friendly. Prices are reasonable and options can last the entire day.
Loved this place & the nice “tent”, antler chandelier and all. Comfy beds, amazing views & super clean. Bath house smelled like a spa & very nice. They provide Bigelow hair & body wash. Wood provided each night of your stay. Bring your s’more supplies. Good for a couple of family. Worth the money!
