“Nice Place”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Great place and the owners were hands-on, always available, and very friendly. Nice pool and excellent hot tub, which was nice to have after hiking all day. They actually had a very full liquor package store with cold beer, both at reasonable prices. Very convenient to Canon City, Royal Gorge, and Cripple Creek.

Thanks for a great stay. Really enjoyed waking up to a beautiful sunrise and then watching fantastic sunsets. The kids had a great time with the pool and other activities. Cabin was nice and cozy and clean.

I will start by saying we made a HUGE mistake and made reservations at Royal View across the street. If you have kids or pets save your money and just reserve with Prospector's RV to begin with. At Royal View they will take your money and as soon as you get there find ways to kick you out for breaking one of their many rules. You are monitored like a prison inmate (I am not exaggerating either). You then will not get a refund and if you are lucky and there is availability you will come across the street and stay here anyways.

Prospector's staff is very friendly! They are laid back and extremely kid friendly with lots of fun things for the kids to do. The sites have more of a camping feel and you can actually relax and be on vacation. They are also reasonable in cost. They even have great discount coupons for the Royal Gorge. We will come back to stay here next time we come to Canon City! Thanks Prospector's staff for saving our one vacation of the year! We appreciate it!

If you have kids, or just want an easy couples getaway. Check out Prospectors. They have tons of activites for the kids, and cabins to avoid sleeping in a tent.

Room Tip: We picked a cabin instead of a camping site. Nothing fancy, but better than sleeping on the ground!

We love camping here every Memorial Day! We've been coming for the last 7 years and love what the new owners have done with the place. Many needed upgrades were done: bathrooms and showers are cleaner, store is updated and additions to the play areas were made. The kids have a great time here. We usually meet friends here and enjoy it every year. I use a pop-up camper here now, but have tent camped and rented one of their cabins with my family two years ago.
The staff is super friendly and helpful.
We will return!!!

This resort was great. We stayed in a small deluxe cabin and it had everything you would want for a small cabin experience (included a restroom and a hot shower). The main store on site had all the necessaries that you may need. It has a lot of activities for children. We had great service from the owners/hosts. Don't look any further if you want to camp, use a RV, or a camping cabin. You can see the Royal Gorge bridge from the grounds and it is a great place to stay if you are going to the Royal Gorge (very near).

Room Tip: The extra money for the deluxe cabin is well worth it.
