We arrived early in the evening. The owners were super welcoming. They let us pick our site. The campground was quiet and our spot had a nice view. They have internet, a hot tub, electricity, water, showers, game room...everything was clean and working. Free coffee in the morning. We just made dinner in the camper and are listening to the elk. They welcomed our dog and warned us of the local bear, coyote, and cats. The owners also offered helpful information for our visit, emailed me a hefty coupon for the royal gorge and walked out with us to show us a few views. We wish we could stay longer.

We stayed several times over summer as new campers. Kids love it because there are plenty of fun things to do for them and the park is geard for them. It would also be a decent reunion spot with adult games/things to do as well. Staff is involved. HOWEVER, I would say that there seemed to be questionable tenants that were allowed to live there which is a drawback. We did not feel safe with the questionable "tenants" we saw staying over the summer. I would say though for value, ammenitites,Canon City, and if you have teen and under kids, it is a decent spot for a few nights. Oh the lower camping spots have decent space as well and bathrooms are clean.

Hello. Thank you for your positive comments about our park. We are glad to read that you had a good time, but we are concerned by your statements about questionable people in the park. We are under new ownership as of May 2014, and would like to let you know that the safety of our customers is of the highest importance to us. While we are unable to pass judgement on people we do not know, we do try to maintain a standard of clean, friendly, happy customers, and those that cause trouble, or could be perceived by us as questionable, are asked to leave the park. We hope you can come stay with us again in the near future.

I researched extensively on the internet the reviews for a campground with cabins to stay in for our Colorado vacation. My requirements were: economical - clean - safe. I found Prospector's to be all of this. They were several miles from town - but when camping - who wants city lights? Our cabin was basic, but certainly adequate. Definitely worth the price. It had two rooms - and a sink and countertop and fridge. We very much enjoyed our stay there. The Royal Gorge is literally right across the road. That wasn't in our vacation plans for this trip - but we popped over one morning before our rafting trip and hiked down the free overlook and looked at the river and the bridge.
Would definitely stay there again.

Very friendly staff, great atmosphere and fun activities for the kids! This is great
weekend getaway for famlies with young kids! This resort is a great camping resort,
very quiet, and relaxing by the campfire. They have all kinds of wonderful activities
going on for the kids. We had a great time for Halloween Weekend with activities like
candy bar bingo, trick or treating among the campsites, haunted hayrides with a haunted house and a decorating contest among the camp sites.
They also have a wonderful playground, pedal cars, and a huge
pillow trampoline which my son really enjoyed. Our cabin was very neat and clean
and it is nice to be close to the Royal Gorge if you have not toured that.
