Visited Canon City did prison tour,ok. Did Royal Gorge Railroad tour, nice a little expensive. Visited Cripple Creek area, did surface Gold Mine tour out of Victor excellent. Florissant Fossil Beds were great. The visitor center in Cripple Creek was excellent. Visited Bishops Castle, interesting, but very unsafe conditions, broken railings, flooring, stuff laying allover.

Week we stayed here and had the best view of the surrounding mountains and the Royal Gorge Bridge. The campground is situated as any easy drive to surrounding tourist sites, Bishop's Castile, Sedalia, Cripple Creek and other wonderful locations. We would stay here again. Managers were very friendly and very helpful in giving us routes to take and places to visit. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The manager does a great job, and the park is spotless. The views are tremendous and the location central to the best climbing, fishing, rafting and gambling in Colorado.

We stayed there for a month, then decided to stay another month and a half! We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The Royal George is fabulous any time of year.

This RV park offers more for the money than you will find in others on the highway.

I highly recommend you get reservations, as the best sites fill quickly.

The first impression that you get upon arrival is not good. There is a long driveway with 5 or 6 huge concrete speed bumps that are placed between very tight posts and boulders. This is to insure that you don't go over the 5 mile an hour speed limit. The owner seemed gruff and not too friendly. I asked about the "Royal view" of the bridge but was told you could only see it at certain times if the lighting was just right. The pool wasn't open and ice was 8 miles down the road. Also no propane. Our site was ok but was gravel and dirt which turned to a muddy mess when the rain started that evening. We were going to stay a week but quickly changed it to one night. Sorry, but I wouldn't recommend this park to my friends. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Welcome to a gravel parking lot with a few trees here and there. We paid for a premium spot. What we got was less than. A standard spot had trees, burn pit, tables, and were closer to the pool and activities. The premium sites were on the outer edge, with no trees, no table, no burn pit, no Wi-Fi and cost $10 more a night. Check in staff went over ALL RULES and more RULES AFTER the money was handed over. Management made it very clear even though it was Labor Day weekend he was closing the pool at 7 pm Sunday for the season. Plus side, easy pull through sites and close to Royal Gorge. Will not stay here again. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Can't remember the exact price now, but I think for two nights it was somewhere between $90 and 100. Other than our site being very unlevel, the campground was OK, except that the driveway lanes were way too narrow. When we mentioned our difficulty getting in to the owner, he got really mad and told us he would refund our money and that we should leave. It was hot, we were already settled in, and my husband was too tired - otherwise, I would've been out of there in a heartbeat, no matter how hard it would've been to find another place on a Friday night! The owner is the reason for the "1" rating and why we would NEVER even consider staying at this campground again and cannot recommend it to anyone else!! We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Since we stayed here with a caravan, I don't know the nightly rate. Very clean park. Good Wi-Fi but no antenna TV reception. Would rate it a 9 or 10 if they had cable TV. Close to Royal Gorge. Canon City is 12 miles away. Friendly staff. All gravel sites. Would stay here again. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

This is one of my favorite RV parks to visit. It is far enough away from Hwy. 50 that road noise isn't much of an issue. The sites are clean and well kept. There are plenty of trails to hike inside the park and there some spectacular views of the Royal Gorge from some of the sites. The park itself is quiet, the owner friendly and hard working. My wife and I have stayed here for several days two years in a row and I have been impressed each time by how hard the owner works to make the park a great place to visit. I enjoy the park not just for the trails and the peace and quiet, but for the wildlife. In addition to an occasional elk that wanders through there are a number of species of beautiful birds that enjoy the park's trees and bushes and sing all day long. If you're looking for a quiet, well kept park where you can relax and watch the rock walls of the Royal Gorge change colors as the sun sets, this is your kind of park.

We will not stay here again. The staff was unfriendly and rude, you have to pay for showers, and we were charged $4.00 per person per day after the two of us. We paid for premium sites and we were told we would have a night view of the Gorge. We didn't have this view until our last night when all the motor homes behind us left. We have been rv'ing for years and we didn't appreciate being talked down to and loaded down with rules. We are over 55 and know the rules!! We have never paid extra for family members or for showers. It was quite a disappointment for such a nice campground. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 nights and were very pleased with the accommodations. We had a nice long pull-through with 50amp. The park is very clean and well maintained. The owner went out of his way to help us with sightseeing information and discount coupons. It is a very quiet park back from the road, with a nice view of the Royal Gorge bridge and surrounding mountains. They are very strict on pet owners who do not leash and clean up after which I was impressed with. I highly recommend this park. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 10 days and really enjoyed it. We were here before the park was ready to open but the owner welcomed us anyway. We were in town to see our boy who was going to school in Canon City. Todd went out of his way to make us feel welcome and see he sights. We would stay here again.

Booking Fees Held Hostage and $50 Nuisance Fee were the first indicators that this may be an unpleasant place to stay. Shortly after booking and paying for a premium site online for a 2 night stay, we discovered that there were wild fires in the area that had actually resulted in closing this campground down. So we immediately attempted to contact the campground in order to cancel our reservation. After two or three days, we were finally able to get in contact with the owner. He told us that he could not guarantee that the campground would be open for the days that we had booked online, that he would not refund any of the prepaid camping fees, that the wild fire was out and the swimming pool was blue. So we decided to go ahead and stick with our original plan. The campground did reopen just in time for our stay, but the wild fire was not out; it was only "contained" with many areas near the campground off limits and patrolled by troopers. Needless to say, use of the fire ring, which was the distinguishing feature of our more expensive premium site, was banned due to the still burning wild fires in the area. And this camp "resort" charges you to use their showers. When we arrived, the owner made sure to reread most of his overzealous rules back to me. His rules included a provision to charge a $50 Nuisance Fee and ejection from the campground without refund if we broke any of his rules. These rules included a 5 mph speed limit along an empty quarter to half mile gravel road from the main road to the camping area; no child 17 or under in pool without a parent/guardian; no unattended pets; no pets with bad manners; no leaks; elbow attachment required for sewer line; etc. The owner takes these rules very seriously and in talking with another camper, I found out that the owner's wife had actually chased down one camper to their campsite and chewed them out for going a little over the speed limit. The owner had made a point about the pool being blue when we attempted to cancel our reservation and it was advertised as a heated pool. Unfortunately the owner kept the pool closed most of the time and pointed at the clouds in the sky as his excuse to not open the pool. We did finally catch the pool open on the second day and it was a disappointment. The heated pool with the blue water was very cold and the water was cloudy. The wireless signal was almost non-existent at our site and was so slow as to be almost unusable where there was sufficient signal strength. The owner said that internet access was via his satellite dish which had minimal bandwidth. He explained to me that when you fly you may get "free" peanuts, but some folks are still be upset if they can't get crackers. So I guess he thinks of his "advertised" wireless internet access as a "free" service to the campers and we should not complain if it is too slow to use? If a feature is advertised, then the cost of that feature is built into the price and is not free. The pet area had a dead rat in it. The miniature golf greens had rocks scattered on them. All of our complaints can be resolved with new management or a new management approach. It is extremely rare for me to post a poor review, but this experience was a very ugly blight on our family vacation. Overall and excluding the management deficiencies; the campground is nice, clean and has plenty of amenities to keep the children busy. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Park is off the highway, so no road noise. Has a distant view of Royal Gorge bridge. The driveway has large rocks spaced along the center, which makes for a tight fit when driving in. Road/sites are gravel. Site spacing is narrow. Staff was friendly, laundry was clean. Water and power was good, cell (AT&T) was weak. We would recommend this park.

This is a royal gouge at $35. No cable TV, no TV signal, no Verizon service and the space is barely flat enough to level. No room between spaces. I would look for a better park in the area. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Clean, friendly campground. Sites good size, level & have nice views of the mountains. Owners very friendly & helpful. Verizon Air card worked well, however no Verizon cell service or TV service. Lots of things to do in the area. Owners putting in a lot of work on grounds, setting up activity areas,etc. All sites nicely raked gravel. Nice hiking trails on grounds with views of Royal Gorge Bridge. Stayed 2 nights, will stay again. We camped at Royal View Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
