Prospectors RV Resort, Canon City, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We did a ton of research reading online reviews and such prior to choosing Prospectors for a family camping trip in the Royal Gorge area. After camping there this last weekend we had no regrets and plan on coming back. Here are three things we think differentiates Prospectors;

1. Actually feels like camping! There are some nice wooded & hilly areas (nothing too steep) with the sites interestingly tucked into the natural lay of the land. It is not just rows of parallel sites. They do have some flat, easy access sites for the big rigs too. They will work with you to reserve the right site for your needs/wishes.

2. LOTS of things for kids to do. There is the famous HUGE jumping pillow (recently replaced with a brand new one!). Our three year old wore out in about 15 minutes of jumping, but had a big smile on his face the whole time. You can get jumping surprisingly high on this thing. Extensive playground had a lot of neat little sub-sections and items to play with. The stationary wooden train was one of our kid's favorite. Heated outdoor pool and water park were still closed for season (it was early May). Really looking forward to coming back to try these.

3. Great vibe from ownership and management! Family run, they are committed to doing everything they can to make your stay special. The manager figured out how to get us cash when we really needed it and had forgotten our pin numbers - THANKS! They are also working hard and using innovative ways (such as camp workers) to continuously maintain/improve the facilities from the run-down condition that existed when they took over the place a year ago. Are they totally there yet? No, but they are making great strides and doing it quickly from what we could tell. This is a place with a positive/can-do attitude that is on the way up. It felt good to support a place like this. We camped at Prospectors RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Aspen Acres Campground, Rye, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This campground fits right in with the vibe of the Wet Mountains, which is one of Colorado's best kept secrets in terms of mountain ranges. As such, the campground has a bit of a wild feel to it. It is kind of out in the middle of nowhere, which to us was a good thing. It has a nice large sweeping meadow and also a forested section with mature pines and aspens that butt up to the San Isabel national Forest. Had an adolescent cinnamon colored bear visit our campsite at about 10pm one night. Very neat wildlife sighting. In general, very relaxed and quiet is the mood of the day. There are some very aesthetic RV sites that start in the meadow and then work their way up into the forest. They are fairly close together, but the way they stair-step and with the vegetation they preserved between many of them, it didn't feel cramped. Well kept and well managed. All utilities worked great. Only a few miles away from San Isabel Lake which has a restaurant/resort and boats to rent. We camped at Aspen Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.
