Prospect RV Park
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were worried before arrival, as we hadn’t been required to pre-pay a deposit or leave cc details to secure our reservation. We arrived outside office hours and needn’t have worried, as paperwork was taped to the office door, clearly showing our name and giving all the details we needed. They even left an adaptor at the electrical hook-up for us. We had a key to our allocated shower/toilet room, one of the eight in the same block. This was very clean and well kept. The Park was well maintained, with lots of wild rabbits running around.
Owner Nancy was really helpful and gave us bus times and taxi numbers to help us get around Denver.
The bus stop is right outside the Park and the bus (#44) into downtown Denver cost $2.25 each and took about 40 minutes each way.
There are some restaurants close by, but as we wanted Thai food, we walked for about half an hour to ‘Thai Green & Sushi’, along the main Youngfield Street. Our meal there was fantastic!
The next night, we took a taxi (about $30 each way) to ‘The Grizzly Rose’, where we had a fast food meal and several beers, whilst watching country bands and trying to work out how the line dancing worked.

We stayed at this RV park for five nights in our Class C motorhome during July 2011 while visiting our daughter who lives in downtown Denver

Prospect Place is near I-70. It has 65 sites surrounding a private residence. Some are full hookup, others have electric and water only. WIFI is free and numerous local DTV stations can be easily received. There is a dump station which is free to park patrons. Two spaces are reserved for one night stays. Though the official name is RV park and campground, a sign indicated “no tent sites.” The entire area is gravel surfaced and some of the sites are very close together but there are some trees and the place is immaculately clean and quiet.

One feature we found unique among all the public and private campgrounds we've stayed at over the years are the “private” bathrooms assigned to each site. The laundry room and 8 bathrooms are located in a building next to the office. To enter one must first punch in a door code and then use a key give to you at check-in to access the specific bathroom assigned to the site. The bathroom contains toilet, sink and shower. The bathrooms and the laundry room which has 6 full size washers and 4 dryers were also immaculate.

When we reserved our site we spoke with the very personable Nancy Laird. She refused to take our credit card # in case we experienced a delay or change in plans which worried us a bit but when we arrived, she had our reservation intact. Unlike many other parks, we were not required to pay for our stay in advance.

Nancy gave us recommendations for local places to get a propane refill and an oil change. We used both and were completely satisfied with the service and friendliness of the proprietors.

In a past visit to Denver we stayed at Chatfield State Park which is a little further out from the city than The Prospect. While we liked Chatfield and also would probably like Cherry Creek SP, neither had sites available for the dates we needed so we felt very lucky to learn about The Prospect. Since the state parks charge a daily vehicle pass fee plus a reservation fee in addition to the cost of the campsite, The Prospect turned out to be considerably less expensive.

There is a greenspace park around the corner with wildlife viewing and fishing. Also nearby is a Camping World and a TA truck stop and a produce market as well as other gas stations and some restaurants and take out places.

We're glad we found Prospect Place and would definitely stay here the next time we visit Denver.
