My experience at Royal View Campground was absolutely miserable. If you are thinking of camping in the area of Canon City, don’t stay there. Unless you want to be lectured to, have the rules read to you after you just read them (like you are a child), even get yelled at for minor offenses like having your pet on a 10 foot leash instead of a 6 foot as specified in their rules. The owners have the property up for sale, and you can tell by the poor customer service they are just plain burned out.

Pretty good place. I'd recommend the Ice Cream Social even if you might feel a little weird about participating. People are nice, and they had shaded sites and open sky sites depending on your preference. It is also close to historic Leadville if you don't want to cook one night, like us. : )
