We were a little hesitant to stay based on previous reviews but were glad we did. This a fabulous RV park of the high side of gently sloping hill with fantastic views in all directions. The sites are gravel, well maintained and clean. The park is undergoing some significant upgrades but not in the camping area. Now the hosts. This is a park in a major tourist area and the staff is very busy. We had no problems, in fact they were more than courteous, BUT if you are the problem. You will have a problem. The park's owner saved us more than one night's camping charges with discounts and directions to off the path area attractions that most others miss. We will highly recommend this park to others. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Overall park is very good; however, internet access is poor (connection to Wi-Fi hub @34MB/s; however, little or no bandwidth to internet available.) No cable or local TV reduce the overall score. Confirm comments regarding staff; however, this is to benefit campers like us without pets or children. Facilities are clean and well kept. Site was 15 level within 6" with left to right fall. Do not expect a refund if you change your booking. The rules were made very clear. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

I agree with the previous review. That owner was obnoxious with his rules, and it made our outing less fun. Camping isn't just for old people,and they like to see families having fun. We couldn't let our 16 year old be at the pool alone with his friend? Get serious. The only worthwhile tip is this- send one member of your party to the royal gorge before 9am, and get your early bird tickets for ten dollars, you can go whenever you want during the day, and it saves a ton of cash. Now you all have that tip too, and you don't have to put up with that guys rudeness. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a premium site which was more than adequate for our motorhome. It was clean, had a unique look and an amazing view. The grounds were crushed rock, 1-2 shade trees per lot with plenty of space. We were thrilled to be in Canon City for our family rafting adventure. Unfortunately the campground is NOT family or kid friendly as the owner has created an atmosphere which is extremely rule bound and tense. I wonder if the previous reviewers that rated this campground so positively had children because the owner clearly does not have any or do they like them. When myself and our family friend checked in (all kids and spouses stayed quietly in campers), I felt like I was being disciplined by a strict principal in that we were read a list of rules and told we would be 'talked to' if we did not comply. In addition, the owners girlfriend felt the need to tell us that our children are our responsibility and not to expect any childcare while we went rafting. I think my jaw fell open and I wasn't sure if she tried to make a joke. It is very difficult to read faces that show no emotion. She was very serious and I only wish I could have replied with a comment but I was so shocked and insulted by the stupidity of that statement. It is very disappointing that a campground with great potential be restricted by such unfriendly and inflexible owners. In fact it was more than disappointing to have travelled over 1100 miles, to our furthest point south, to be greeted in such a rude manner. We have camped in many campgrounds and never have we met more unfriendly hosts. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Price too high for a campground that offers so little. The pool was the only thing going for it yet did not have enough water to let the skimmers get rid of bugs. Customers do that themselves. There was no TV, the internet useless. The owner gave the usual, "there's nothing wrong with it, I use it every day myself." To add to this, our cell phone with zillions of little people running around to keep up the connections, had no service. Overall, I wouldn't stay there again.

I agree with the previous review. Overall, a nice campground, if you don't have to interact with the owner. He is ex-military, and it shows. Very abrupt, not at all friendly, let's everyone know he's the boss. He brags that he "runs off" anyone he doesn't like. Wi-Fi was so slow it was unusable. We would look for a friendlier place to stay. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall nice CG. The owner is a little short on his responses. WiFi is not usable in all of the sites in spite of what the owner thinks. The data rate is very slow and very limited. Also my website program indicated that all 500 files needed to be updated from the laptop after I had updated 5 files. Something is not working correct from this CG connection. Also there was no Verizon access along this area of route 50 (major truck route) or in the CG. So forget about aircard access. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The sites are all gravel, very close together and not entirely level. The fellow that checked us in was pretty short with me, but didn't quite cross the line to flat out rude. Fortunately, we were tired and just needed an overnight place to camp. There is a nice fenced in leash off dog area that our pooch enjoyed. If we're back in the area sometime in the future, we'll probably try another campground. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow! I am surprised by the comments on Royal View Camp Resort. We camped here in May 2008 & the proprietor was one of the best campground owners I have ever met. He just runs a tight ship. He lives here, it is his home. Would you want someone to come to your home and disrespect your grounds? We stayed here 2 weeks and he was very helpful, friendly and kind. Invited us to his Memorial Day Crawdad boil with his family! Wonderful folks! I would stay here again as the owner made us feel like family. It is the cleanest campground in that area. The owner is a very, very hard worker and takes pride in his campground. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We visited this campground looking for a good RV park for our 43' motorhome. We did not stay here because the manager (we'll call Mr. T) was so rude, unfriendly and acted like he was so "disgusted with the world," we had to walk out. We also were told he (the park) has a Very Strict Cancellation Policy of 15 days cancelling. Watch out if you decide to cancel within the 15 days! He's unforgiving! On the flip side: This is the nicest park in the Canon City area. Most other parks only have 30 amps, no shade and unlevel sites. At least at this park, there's some shade and full hook-ups with 50 amps. So if you don't care about his attitude, then this is the place to stay. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Looks nice, but the sites are too close together, and the trees need to be cut back. My sight (#1), a premium site, was so off level that my leveling system couldn't get the coach level. The Wi-Fi was so slow it was almost useless. The connection was good so the problem must be with their ISP. With only one TV channel available, this place really needs cable TV.

Todd and his assistant Gay were more than hospitable. They always made sure we were taken care of. Todd is working very hard on many camp projects to improve on this very special place. Many things to do and see from this area. Highly recommended! We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Redone 2 years ago. Sites are larger and more accessible. Roads are vastly improved. The sites are much closer to level than they used to be. Wifi works great. Sprint cell service. Nice, open feel. Very clean. Friendly personnel. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Road from Hwy. 50 to campground and all roads in park plus sites are good gravel. Sites were close to level, wide, and long. WiFi was free. Sites in front are all new with new hookup's. View of mountains was great. You are very close to Royal Gorge. Canon City is 10 miles away. No road noise here. No cell phone service, no TV channels. New owners are working hard to make this park a great place. One of the better park we looked at near Royal Gorge. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
