Disappointed given the rave reviews this park gets. The people are very friendly and helpful, and the views are great. The sites are very clean, with nice concrete pads with tables. The highway noise is a factor depending on wind, as is the smell from the horses next door (although the neighbors do a fantastic job of keeping their area clean). Neighbors to the west target shooting. The RV next to us has 4 dogs. The washers and dryers in the laundry are very old, but worked okay, 2 dryers out of order. WiFi was good, when it worked. We were frequently disconnected. No cable TV, or over-the-air TV. Too expensive for what you get. - debdana

This is one the most well-maintained parks that we have been to in 5 years of full-time travel. The sites are well-groomed gravel with new concrete patios and fire rings. The views from the park are beautiful and the location is convenient for the Royal Gorge and Canon City sights. The water pressure and quality are excellent, as is the wifi and Verizon coverage. The owners and staff are attentive and helpful. The guests here are mostly adults. The parks with the noisy children's activities and huge playgrounds etc are further up the road, closer to the gorge. The owner of the park lives on site and is very active in maintaining the grounds and attending to guests. We were thankful to have such an attentive person around when the group who recently came in and parked next to us became unruly. They had multiple vehicles, off-leash dogs, and just too many people on their sites. Not to mention the homemade propane tank fueled flame-thrower that they were playing around with right next to us. The park owner eventually had to ask them to leave. When they left, they sprayed gravel all over a neighbor's truck as they sped off. We were so glad to have someone keeping things under control and enjoyable for the rest of us, who were having our stay ruined by these folks. - ErikaN

What a total rip-off! Save your money and go elsewhere. This place is not worth the $950 for two weeks that they ripped us off on! Their website makes it sound like such a nice place, but it totally sucks! Don't waste your money on deluxe or premium because there is absolutely nothing special about either one...even the standard sites are subpar. No shade at all! You get a little concrete pad with a plastic picnic table. If you have teenagers that drive, be prepared to pay $7 a day to park extra vehicles! Another rip off. Bathrooms were closed, locked up, staff person directed us to the bathhouse facilities (only one on site!). Be prepared to use the toilet and shower in public because the door does not lock, and there are two toilets and two showers so have fun taking a shower with strangers! Gross! People stare at you as you come in like they have never seen another human being! How intrusive! No privacy whatsoever! Dog parks...two....HA! Big joke! Basically grass area that is not fenced in so your poor dogs have no where to run or get exercise! What a joke! Playground area? Where? You blink and you miss it. Also be prepared to follow their full page of rules! I am not sure how the owners sleep peacefully at night knowing they are completely ripping people off! - jiggy76

Very nice RV resort! Friendly staff that are courteous, respectful, accomodating, and make you feel welcome. Nice dog park that is fenced in so the dogs can run. Clean facilities, nice pool and hot tub, and playground. Nice large areas with a pull through, plenty of room for extra parking, other guests are friendly. Large fire ring and picnic table. Mature trees with plenty of shade. Very well worth your money. Highly recommend this place! - jiggy76

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

We stayed here in a 2005 Travel Supreme Select motorhome with a tow vehicle. The sites are extra large and are covered in crushed granite with a split rail fence dividing them. We stayed in a pull through with room to park our GMC Canyon and 5 bicycles. They had a nice picnic table and full hook ups. This park has 2 dog parks along with many trails for walking or biking. They have a nice pool, laundry room, arcade area, mini-golf, playground, disc golf and awesome view of the Royal Gorge Bridge! They also offer small cabins for your non RV travelers. The rules are not bad at all and they keep the park clean tidy and quite. We stayed here with 3 grandkids and loved it. I would definitely stay here and recommend it to all. The staff was friendly and helpful with advice on area attractions - JEFFREY V

Very pricy for what you get. Gates to enter very narrow for. If rigs. Rules, rules, rules. Had to sign 20 rules about dogs as we checked in. $5/load to wash clothes, $5.50 for ice. They charge to use their showers. Everything is upcharge and expensive. - Cynlruss

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

We stayed one night on our way to Olathe, Colorado. They tried to put us in site 10 but there was a tree with low limbs in the way. I asked for another site and they put us in site 2 (a premium site) at no extra cost. Later that day they tried to put another 5th wheel in that same site and he refused, too. The park is older and the roads were a bit dusty. Everything worked and I would use again for an overnight stay. I think they should be more aware of the size of different RVs and not assign large RVs to sites with low limbs. - RideandHike2

We stayed here 3 nights. The campsite is clean, the sites are gravel but level and easy to get into. Although it is a busy place and the sites are pretty close together, they are set up so as to give you plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy the weather. The views on the perimeter of the camp are absolutely amazing. The laundry room is clean and in good working condition, (although the change machine was out of order), which was no big deal since we brought plenty of quarters knowing we might need them. We got good cell signal on verizon, sprint and at&t. The park wifi was good, not great, but plenty sufficient for our needs. We would definitely stay here again! - Susan Gibson

The campground was good. So much for kids to do, service was super friendly. Some of the sites are very tight, but if you get a patio site they are really nice. There was a sewer issue one day of our stay, but they were able to fix it by the evening and we experienced no further issues. Close to a lot of things to do, truly enjoyed this park. We will definitely go back. - HeatJerCam

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

Lots of personality. Beautiful view and quiet. We enjoyed and will be back. Not a cookie cutter place. Owner and staff very nice. - thefam683

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
Jul 2016 - $40.00
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

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

The town of Cripple Creek is pretty fun, with lots to do and see both in town and in the area. But the RV park surrounding the Hospitality House is only mediocre. None of the sites appeared to be level, and most motor homes had their front tires in the air. The space between my gravel site and my neighbor's gravel was only big enough for a picnic table, and my other neighbor spent each morning reading the paper next to my sewer hookup. I never saw them clean a site, though plenty of people were not picking up after their dogs. It wasn't too trashy, though it was a bit messy with vehicles and other gear around. But the worst part was the city water that smelled like a swimming pool -- lots of chlorine. Of course, that may not have been the park's fault, but it was undrinkable. You're in town, so the cell service is decent. There is a grocery store and gas station close by. If I was staying in the area again I would go up the road to Mueller State Park. - OffroadGirl

$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
