We are new to the travel trailer experience. The owner met us at the entrance, took us to our site and even guided us into the spot. He also took the time to give the picnic table a good cleaning (it already looked clean to us) even though we told him we wouldn't be using it. Wonderful camp ground and we hope to spend some more time there soon! - Peggy Mark

Unusually long drive in unusually hot weather and we were so ready to get set up. Pulled in and the owner took us right to our site, unhooked our tow vehicle, guided us in and we had the A/C up and running in under 5 mins of arrival! Can't say enough about how hospitable and helpful the hosts/owners are. We booked months ago and requested a premium perimeter site and at the time they said it shouldn't be a problem that late in the season, but couldn't guarantee anything. Well, even though the place looked full, they managed to save us my first choice of sites. Sites and amenities are immaculate. Some of the best views anywhere. The hosts were continually circling the resort, sweeping patios, raking gravel, plucking the odd weed, checking on guests, etc. Definitely makes our top 5 list. Be aware that many restaurants, activities, attractions and such close down for the season around this time. Call ahead. - Mike-M

Beautiful park! We had stayed here before the new owner's took over and the improvements they have made are outstanding. Park is quiet, clean and well laid out with space between the sites. Amazing views and right in the heart of many activities. We will be back! - Roose19

We were here for a week to teach a morning session of an NRVIA sponsored event. The folks at the campground are relatively new managers of the park and were very accommodating. We enjoyed the close proximity to the Royal Gorge Bridge Park. - Howard Jaros

This could be a decent park, but the sites of the permanent residents are terrible. They are junkie and covered with trash, poorly made structures and a lot of just stuff. Besides the aforementioned residents, the low water pressure and the wind, the park would be OK, but not for me! - NavyRebel

This park is convenient to visit Royal Gorge, the sites are fairly level but the electrical system is overworked the power failed 3 or 4 times during the day we were here and the park wasn't full - Bruce and Janette

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. We were in an Executive site which is a bit of a misnomer. It was long enough for our 43' TH but didn't have many amenities; a metal fire pit and a picnic table on a slab which was tilted about 5 degrees making you feel like you're going to fall over while sitting. The campground was full and the activities were abundant. Here's the good: site was decent sized, threaded sewer connection was nice, tons of activities (mini-golf, playground, pool, dog parks (waste bag stations too!), Frisbee golf, arcade, ping-pong, walking trails, etc), great views of the bridge. The not-so-good: price was a little steep, wifi had great signal strength but very slow (used cellular data plan instead), site wasn't very level (my auto leveling system handled it fine but everything was sloped, couldn't park a second car in the site despite there being enough room for 4-5 cars (we had some friends visit and when asked if they could make an exception because the parking lot was full, the owner was very adamant that they had to park in the secondary parking "No exceptions".), there was only one trash bin located by the front entrance (we were 100 yards away) and it was overflowing, lots of bugs in the pool, no cable tv or reception for local over-the-air stations (if you can't provide cable, at least provide enough bandwidth on wifi to allow streaming tv entertainment), and the whole campground was gravel. Summary: a decent campground that I would stay at again for no more than a weekend. - Moman1

This park is run by a lunatic. I watched this man target and harassed a young family and their children with the help of 4 of his employees. One of the employees later apologized to other customers and admitted that the owner was wrong but there was nothing he could do about it. All because the young girls did not follow one of his 1000 rules that all benefit him and not you. Avoid this place. The owner has anger problems and is full of hate that if he targets you and your family will be on display. If you have a short fuse, then this guy will provoke you and will get you to something you will regret so he can profit off of it. The local police tell people to avoid this place because of the owner, and that is exactly what you should do. You have been warned. READ ALL THE REVIEWS ON ALL THE SITES. There are some scary stories about this guy out there dating back to 2009. He wants older folks who stay inside their campers all day. This place had a really odd environment, and you could tell most of the weekend guests were terrified to talk loud or use any of the equipment out of fear of dealing with the owner. If he is mentally capable of bullying little girls to the point they break down and cry, he is capable of just about anything. - Back The Blue

This is a great park!! The staff is wonderful. There is so much to do. Hiking trails, bike trails, miniature golf, horseshoes, a heated pool. The sites are spaced nicely and there are big trees. The WiFi is good. You have to have a satellite to get TV but there is so much to do, you don't need it. We were here 8 days. This our second time to stay here. It is a quiet park with a great view of Royal Gorge Bridge. We highly recommend it!!! - LL Horton

I was given a gravel FHU pull-thru site for my 42' 5th wheel. Needed some blocking to level up the RV. Site had a picnic table, a broken propane grill and a fire ring to use. The bathrooms & laundry look clean and taken care of. I had room to unhook and park perpendicular to the RV. I used my dish for tv and the wi-fi was ok. The park was easy to maneuver in and had some shade trees. A small store is in the office and the staff is friendly. Park is just off Hwy 50 and close to the Royal Gorge. The only bad part of the stay was listening to a dog barking most of the day. - Piperflyer 235

Stayed here 4 nights and enjoyed the quiet. The campground is about a 1/2 mile from the highway and set back from the county road. We were in the newly renovated section and the utilities were good. But I still had to level the rig with boards under the tires on one side. I would have thought that they could have leveled the sites during renovation. Also, large rock walls were installed to separate the sites but in some cases they infringe into the site or limit maneuvering. But this section does look nice and sites are larger then in the older section. Staff was very nice and helpful. And being able to order pizza delivered to our site was a big plus! - RV'er

This park has obviously been here a while and could use some freshening. To be fair, the deluxe sites have been recently updated and are very nice. The older ones are pretty close together, and share too many things (like electric box!). I pulled in next door was connected to 30 amp I was able to use 50 (could be a problem for some that NEED 50). If that is the case I recommend larger rigs use deluxe sites only. Overall not terrible. Had K9 area, but all sand. No grass at all in the area for dogs (but have to consider where you are). Would probably try another one in the area first next time. - 7 on the road

The owner is super friendly and dresses up like the 50's as does her staff. The theme is classic trailers and auto's. It is Colorado and people smoke cigs & weed everywhere. There is a front porch in front of store that is a smoking area. This turned me off, so I was not able to sit and visit with others.
Share a power post with neighbor, back to back, one side is 30 amp other 50. - Lilly Flower

We stayed here for 3 days, the first at full price, $42 using 30 amp. The next two were supposed to be Passport America, $21 plus tax, but we were charged $25 plus tax. I don't know why they didn't honor the half price? Anyways, I really like this campground! Their location is perfect and the owners have gone to great effort to make this place very cool...lots of antique RV's and automobiles to make this like a theme park...lots to look at. We had good water pressure, good free wifi and a nice, wide lot. Loved the happy hour on the front porch each night at 4. Direct TV worked well, except it was 20 degrees off on the pointing of the dish. There is a lot to do in this area, and it is beautiful! You have a good view or the Royal Gorge Bridge from the campground. - Ginny H

Although the showers and restrooms were clean and the people in the office were friendly, this place was dusty with horse stables next to us, and a junky camper that looked like a permanent fixture a few sites down. Probably will look elsewhere next time through. - Colorado Vagabond

20, 30 amp outlets were not in good working order. Sewer receptacle was not conveniently located. Small sites. Mainly long term tenants and OLD units. No patio area. - Icfman

Campground is no frills and very reasonable on a monthly basis. No amenities except for a bath house, which was extremely old and worn but kept very clean. Camp hosts very helpful and friendly. Mostly permanent residents but there are a couple of sites for travelers. - clongest

We stayed at Echo Canyon for 2 nights, a base for us to visit the Gorge and go White Water Rafting.
Campground is ideally sited as rafting, and restaurants sited opposite campground.
Facilities were clean, WiFi was good, best of all the sites we visited. Some road and helicopter noise. Site is spacious, no close neighbours, staff very helpful.
Would visit again. - Singaporeally

We were only looking for a place to spend two nights that would allow us to see the Royal Gorge and go rafting and this location did that. Despite being a decent sized park, all full hookup sites are right on top of each other and it makes you feel very crowded when the rest of the park is completely open. Site was all dirt and slightly sloped. It was uphill from my sewer connection to the dump spot, even with sewer support holder my tanks would not drain, had to drive to the dump station on the way out to empty the tanks. Also, water and electric connections are at one end of the site and sewer is that the other end, all hoses were stretched to their limits and I only have a 26' camper. No cable and there were no over the air channels to be found. WiFi was good and cell reception was okay (AT&T). Main issue was the stickers, everywhere you walked you ran into them, except the gravel drive, they even worked their way through our ground carpet. Road noise was not all that bad and we had a site right near the front of the property. One of our nights was a Saturday and we could barely hear the live band when we were sitting outside of our camper and not at all once inside. Yes there is a helicopter but they have talked to the pilot and he rarely overflies the campground, even if the winds make him takeoff in the direction of the campground he quickly turns and flies over the neighboring farm land. I would stay here again for how close it is to their rafting company, located across US 50. - Ian B

We just spent three nights at Echo Canyon and had a great time!
Our site had no shade trees, but was very large, although the neighbors on two sides were very close, and even though the site wasn't level, it only took a couple of extra minutes to get set up.
We were not looking for swimming pools and hot tubs . . . just a nice place to spend a few days relaxing.
And that is exactly what we did!
The highway and the helicopter noise didn't bother me in the least.
The WiFi was great for checking email, but not good for trying to stream movies, TV, or music. But really, I've never been to an RV park that can handle that kind of stuff on their WiFi.
Next time we go to the Royal Gorge we will stay at Echo Canyon again! - John_D

We're here over Memorial Day weekend and arrived here with a few surprises because the website sells the place pretty well. The dirt road getting back here is super washed out and tricky for any low clearance trailer, car or camper. We arrived late and there are virtually no lights here nor was there late arrival information. We just picked a spot and hoped for the best. There is little grass, mostly dirt. The "solar heated pool" was not open. And we expected to be able to hike or walk the fossil area, only to find out after arrival this requires an escort and there is a fee. Another drawback were the "long term" campers, although the place was cleaner and more tidy than other campgrounds with tenants. The people working were kind enough to not charge for our first night late arrival and seemed overall pretty nice. If you're looking for a place to park, hang out and maybe hit the hills, this is probably your place. - kpieper876

Price is based on the full-hookup monthly rate. If you are looking for continual activities, water park, playgrounds, and miniature golf, this may not be the campground for you. If you are into quiet laid-back mountain views with plenty of trails to stroll among Rocky Mountain junipers and pinion pines, this unique family-run campground on a working ranch might well be just what you are looking for. The local birds include several varieties of hummingbirds, scrub jays, mountain chickadees, canyon and spotted towhees, and pink sided and red backed juncos. Nearby fields are alive with prairie dogs, mountain bluebirds, and the occasional road runner. The campground is well laid out with small trees near most campsites. The bathroom/shower area is clean and inviting as is the pool that is heated by a solar array. Well-behaved, non-aggressive dogs are welcome. Satellite television works well, the Verizon hotspot has no signal, but the camp Wifi is sufficient for browsing and emails. Phone signals are iffy but our Wilson signal booster gives a reasonable signal on AT&T phones. This is the high desert on a working cattle ranch so there may be some dust at times and a few cattle might wander through the campground. They are gentle beasts that add to the ambiance of the place without paying much attention to the campers. The a mile long dirt road once you turn into the ranch gate is a bit bumpy but easily managed by any size rig. We’ve camped throughout the United States and this particular campsite in this campground ranks among the top 3 campsites that we’ve occupied in our travels. We would definitely come back if we are in this area again. We are camping here in a travel trailer. Our original intent was stay here for the month of April, however, we’ve liked it so well we have extended our stay through the month of May. Still here enjoying springtime in the Rockies! - Kate

Advertised as having Wi-Fi but it was not available and this was one of our reasons for choosing this park. The staff was friendly and helpful, but since Wi-Fi was a requirement for us (cell phones did not work either), we chose not to stay the full month as we intended. While this park was pet friendly it was almost too friendly. Dogs were off leash and were not picked up after which spoiled the surroundings. It is remote and quiet and has a beautiful pool. - snarkey
Mar 2018 - $20.00
Water, electric and sewer were available at this time but I elected for Electric only for $20.00 a night. The park is within the city limits and is a very short, uphill walk to Bennett Ave where all the casinos are located. There were at least 3 casino shuttles and 1 city shuttle which will pick you up in the RV park. As stated in the other reviews, the park is a gravel parking lot with 16 linear spots that are very close. Absolutely no trees and all gravel. Sites seem to be level. Several long-term residents at the park. The RV office has a store and a laundromat. Although the bathrooms seemed clean, the showers were covered in mildew. Staff that checked me in was very nice and pleasant. Great customer service... I enjoyed this RV park because I didn't spend much time there. The downtown is so close and there are many things to do there and the surrounding area. In my opinion, if you utilize this RV park to be a place to sleep and not to hang out, it does just fine. - Paul Lewin

Robbery that they can charge more than $5.00 a day. Weeds, mud, dog waste and poor service. Plain ugly rv park. Many seemed to be living there. No picnic tables, very narrow spaces, should have boon-docked! We are not particular and realize this is not in a big city, but dog doo doo is crap! - Valrip

This "RV Park" is basically a field behind town with hookups. Campsites are a mix of weeds, gravel and bits of garbage. It appears to be a haven for full-timers in decaying old trailers. Very run down (assuming it was in better shape at some point). I would never have chosen this place except that it was late and I was tired. I'm leaving here as soon as I finish writing this. I certainly won't be coming back. - LoveMyCasita
Jul 2016 - $29.00
$29 dollar rate is weekly w/ 50 amp full hookups. Extremely friendly staff and plenty sufficient non-resort campground. Short gravel drive to sites which are not large, but quite adequate - easy drive in and easy drive out. Power / electrical voltage excellent. Water very good and not hard. Bath house clean according to my wife's high standards. No real amenities other than excellent basics. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Stayed here a week in our 40' motorhome to explore Cripple Creek and surrounding area. - God Bless America
Aug 2012 - $25.00
While the area around Cripple Creek is interesting to explore and of course the gambling can be fun, the Campground itself is nothing special. The Pros are the location and the friendly people in the office. The Cons were the unlevel sites, locations of the hookups being right next to the rickety picnic table and close proximity to the next unit. Its definitely not the worst place, but far from the best. - sl11744
Aug 2011 - $24.00
The previous reviewers are spot on for most of the details. FWIW, the spot they assigned us wasn't large enough or level enough for our 40' coach so we chose another site. It worked out fine, but we had to use our spare leveling blocks under the front tires to keep from "hanging" them from the leveling jacks. If possible, stay in sites A1-A4 if you can, they have the best view of the not so distant mountains. This is a great place to visit, but mostly for the wonderful things to do while in the area, not necessarily for the campground. There was much to see and explore and we had a grand time in Cripple Creek. We'd would stay here again as the alternative nearby was much more difficult to enter and to get set up at. - mackerman
