Very quiet with friendly staff. Secure site with locked gate and onsite camp host. You do need to have a generator because there is no electric hookup. All in all a very nice stay. - 2yoopers

Called him at the last minute and he confirmed a space. He led us on 3 wheeler to a spot since there is no map and no numbered spaces. Cranked up antenna to get stations at Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Super nice guy.
There were many trees and routes around them and it was pretty quiet. Restrooms/showers and laundry room were great. Full hookups were super easy. No pool but good views of the area (and prairie dogs). Coyote sang one night. Highway nearby not nearly as noisy as other parks. Park had signs on the highway and was easy to find. - John M_Wichita

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

I liked this campground. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Gravel spots, really nice size. This is high plains desert so no grass or shade. Very nice, quirky decorated walking path around campground. Our site was level. Great views for viewing mountains and watching sunsets. About 20 minutes from Pueblo and 45 minutes to Colorado Springs. Decent WIfi and Verizon. As stated on the website and when we made our reservation, need water filter and to use bottled water. I would go back. - TravelingParkers

We were in the area to visit with friends and this was very convenient to them. The campground was very well maintained and the host was very friendly and accommodating. Spaces were gravel and level and had plenty of room. After a chat about wildlife, at one point the host let us know that there was an antelope herd that could be seen from the park. Also, the park experienced a power outage one day while we were out and about and the host called us to see if we had any pets in our rig and if they could help with that. We didn't, but I sure appreciated that they would worry about that! They called again a bit later to let us know the outage was resolved. That is excellent customer service! - KathyG

In my 10 months of travelling so far, these were the nicest owner-operators I have run across. Always saying hello and working to maintain and upgrade the property. It shows because they have groups of return customers. The views here are gorgeous. Lots of space between sites. The WiFi was absolutely solid the entire time which is necessary for me as I work. Was notified ahead of time about the well water so that was a non-issue. - jjh1975

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

Excellent place to stay while exploring the many places to visit in the area. Staff was very helpful and provided excellent service. A busy park but a quiet one. Verizon cell service is almost non-existent but WiFi was okay. It's a bit of a drive to a full grocery store but the park has a fairly well-stocked store with the basics. No propane filled here so be advised if you need tanks filled before arrival. - Mr. Camper

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

This is a huge park with hundreds of sites on both sides of the reservoir. Absolute best internet connectivity I've had in a state park - AirstreamR

Beautiful park with large sites overlooking Lake Pueblo. There is no access to swim in the lake except at a swimming beach, which is several miles away. Each site has a paved pad with a fire ring and sheltered (top and one side) over a table. There is a $7 daily use fee in addition to the camping fee. Many of the sites are pull-through. There is a paved bike path throughout the park, which has several other campgrounds. - SideBySiders

This is one of three campgrounds in Pueblo Lake State Park. This one does have electric hookups as well as flush toilets and showers (not available in winter months). We enjoyed our stay here. The views from our site and overlooking the cliffs were fantastic. This is a very dry region, so not much green grass or trees. The sites are very large, and some can accomodate big rigs and boat trailers with ease. Note, rate does not reflect $7.00 entry fee into park. - Fitzjohnfan

My wife and I stayed here for 3 weeks, one of the best or (the best) we've stayed at. All of the people that work there are super friendly and will help with anything at the drop of a dime. Even the owner was always working and also gave us great recommendations for the local eateries and sight seeing spots. We arrived a day early and they put us up on site 33 (which had a beautiful view looking southwest at the mountains) with the intentions of moving to our pre-reserved site. The next day they called to say we could stay put if we wanted. Absolutely with that view!!!! The bathrooms, laundry rooms and the entire park was immaculate, showers were beautifully tiled and the fixtures were very modern. After a camper left, staff were on the site within the hour raking and tidying up for the next guests. If we are ever in the area again Mountain View would be the only place my wife and I would stay. - Danny McDole

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
