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

I will start with the positives first. The hosts are very nice people, you can see some of the Royal Gorge bridge, not far from Royal Gorge Park and Buckskin Joe, and there is some space between the sites. Negatives: The dog leash rule is not enforced by the hosts. While here a group of people camping never had their dogs on leashes. The owners saw this and at one point the smaller dog wandered up to hosts home and hosts brought the dog back asking if dog belonged to them. When told yes, NOTHING was said to them about keeping dogs on leash! Not safe for other people or dogs no matter how friendly the dogs are. WiFi was close to non-existent. Never got above low or no connection even going to pavillion close to dish. The bar across the street has a live band on the weekend and music goes until midnight. Across the street is the helipad for the helicoptor tours. On good days it doesn't stop. Unless you have your own satelittle you will not get TV reception. The sites are decent size but not level so bring blocks and it is dirt with some gravel. If you are close to the road you will definitely have road noise. The campground is for sale so I would not expect improvements. - petpeople

You can see the Royal Gorge bride from the camp. Park has a nice hostess and host. Does have WiFi, but it's a bit weak when more than 300 feet from office. Sites are decently level, but relatively close together. - stetwood

This is an older park, but the new owner is working daily to improve things. He has lots of plans to get it to top notch. There are lots of things for children to do at the park. We are planning to stay here again. The sites are gravel but level and plenty long for a big rig. A water park and a large bounce ring for kids. Fire pits for every site. - jhowell

We do not understand the good ratings of this park. We have traveled in our RV all over this country. This is perhaps the worst place we have stayed.
First, the permanent resident RVs are in horrible shape. Junk outside of them and plastic covering roofs and windows. Second, the "hired hands" looked like they were on drugs. We were concerned about leaving our RV there while we were out doing tourist stuff. Third, every time either of us went to the restroom, one or more of the toilets were plugged. Fourth, there are weeds and "stickers" everywhere that stick to our dog.
Needless to say, we do not recommend this park. - Rambotbm

It was really hard to navigate at night on arrival. The new owner was given more to deal with then he expected and knows some of the issues and is going to fix them. Including signage. Overall we had a good experience. The kids loved the playground, little go carts and pool area. There is some work to be done but I think by next summer it will be a really fun camping spot. - Leigh C

This is the 4th year I've stayed at Lone Duck & I love it more every year! They're always making improvements, but the friendly staff, clean bathrooms, hot showers with excellent water pressure, beautiful surroundings, and free coffee every morning stay the same. There's a great camp store and the best B'fast deal around available right there every morning - delicious pancakes and sausage for only $5. The pool, stocked lake for fishing, video arcade, and rushing stream keep the kids so active & happy! We just LOVE everything about this Camoground. It's also convenient to everything and there's even a pizza place that'll deliver here. We'll be back! Wouldn't stay anyplace else. - SilverJ

Very friendly and helpful staff. We camped here for 3 nights while we explored the Colorado Springs area. It was a great location with easy access to Cripple Creek, Colorado Springs, Royal Gorge, and Pikes Peak. The sites were large and easy to get in and out of. They had a heated swimming pool and served an all you can eat breakfast for $5.00. We were in a 33 foot RV with 3 slides and had no problem in our site. We highly recommend it. - cbp

Very nice staff, easy pull through site, choosing a site was easy as there were very few other campers. CG is mostly dirt but good shade with some grass. Restrooms were dated and not very clean probably because it is the end of the primary camping season. They have a wonderful pool but I am sure many campers abuse the restrooms, i.e. track dirt everywhere, after using the pool and then the restrooms. Excellent WI-FI but that may be due to the small amount of campers using it. Unfortunately this CG is just down the hill from Hwy 24; it is very noisy during the day, fine at night as long as we were inside the camper. Not a place to enjoy the out-of-doors unless you are just there for the pool and playground for the kids. It is close to Manitou Springs. - katinfoco

Park staff was friendly and led us to our site and helped us park. They needed to, because sites were extremely tightly packed. Mostly longterm, who had the bigger and shaded sites. Sites were level. Rate was weekly.
Centrally located thus quite a bit of road noise. Interior streets were terrible and entrance was over a narrow bridge. Laundry was good. - daviputnam

Gravel pad, full hookups, large pull through spots, space to put up 2 man tent in RV spots. Picnic table, roomy gravel area around parking spot. Clean, quite and friendly park. Close to site seeing areas. Swimming pool, safe play ground & inside store. - mamacallsen

This is very tight parking at best. Lots of permanent guests. We have been traveling in MH since last April and have been thousands of miles up the Pacific coasts and this park has been the first to make me feel pretty uneasy about staying here. It is very close to Manitou Springs and the historic district of Colorado Springs. WiFi poor, Internet for AT&T very slow. You have to turn in between McDonald's and Taco Bell to cross into park. Very overpriced in my opinion. I would not stay here again. - HillCountryRV0128

Really small site for our motorhome. There was a large pick-up next to us that looked like it was under our slide, it was so close. No grass, few flowers, just rock in the site. We had a patio, with table. Price reflects monthly rate, including electric, which is separate. - Chiango

spaces are very tight. also park rents out tent spaces in the rv area. we were surrounded by a youth church camp for 4 days. water pressure is bad. wifi might work if you used it from midnight to 4 a.m. other than that it is worthless. power grid in park is old and out of date. during a hot day they park power grid kicked off five times. just old and needs to be replaced. since colorado legalized marijuana this section of colorado has become the weed retail center. area is weed shops, tattoo parlors and cheap motels. a man was stabbed to death in a cheap motel just blocks from this rv park while we were there.. only good thing about this park is the location. close to the tourist destinations. - lawrence k

As expected, the sites are close together, but access is very good with paved roads throughout the park. The sites on D row were not at all level. I couldn't level the coach even using blocks under the jacks without raising the front wheels off the ground. The staff is very responsive and helpful. I had a problem with low voltage and it was fixed shortly after I reported it. The location is great, there are two pools, a playground and even a place to get dinners several days a week. Expect crowds, but it is quiet at night. - Good Vibes

Superlatives barely begin begin to describe this campground. For some years now Golden Eagle has firmly established itself as one our three favorites in the entire U.S.A. With almost 1,000 acres of virtual wilderness on the East Slope of the Rocky Mountains just south of Colorado Springs this place has everything for a serious camper. Miles of hiking trails, incredible wildlife, incomparable views and spectacular scenery. You can hike up a trail and see at least 75 miles. At night you can watch the lights of Colorado Springs twinkle in the distance. The people who run this campground are friendly, reliable and dedicated to making your stay comfortable. The bathrooms are really clean and sanitary. Associated with the park is the May Natural History Museum which is at the bottom of the hill you'll drive up to reach the campground. The Museum houses the largest privately owned insect collection in North America and at $6.00 for adults to visit it is well worth a visit. The incredible diversity of nature is on display there and wonderful to view. The sun rises from the great plains to the east and sets behind the mountains to the west. Simply an incredible place. I love camping at this place. Can't recommend it highly enough. If you want perfectly level sites on concrete slabs and cable TV you may not be happy, but if you love wilderness, spectacular views, the fresh smell of pine trees and sage and lots of wildlife, Golden Eagle is really hard to beat. - Jim C.

Beautiful park! A little more primitive with dirt roads, but with full hookups, clean bath houses and laundry. Two private ponds to fish in and can pay campground fee of $6.00 instead of state fee. Staff is very welcoming and helpful! Will stay here again and again! - chefb1969

Beautiful and very clean campground surrounded by stunning mountains, river and many hiking and bike trails. Staff very friendly and respectful. 1st week we stayed in a very big lot with full hook-ups. Quiet and peaceful. 2nd week, the campground was fully booked, owner offered us to boon dock in a secret place that I will call "our little paradise." Lots of cute rabbits, fox, deer...and apparently bears that we did not see. A cute lake where you can fish to. We will definitely return! - Merci_la_vie

It's very hard to find a spot in this area during vacation time. I was very happy to find this one for a few days. The staff was very friendly. My setup with rig and trailer is 65ft long so they assigned me a site that long. After arriving I discovered the site utilities were in the very back and I had to build an extension cord for electric and buy an additional water and sewer hose. That cost me $120 but I am now prepared for next time. The exceptional thing that occurred was the day I was supposed to leave, so another party could come in, I had a mechanical failure that prevented me from putting in my slides or lowering the jacks. The manager was very understanding as I tried to fix the issue and at the same time find a mobile RV mech. The manager worked very hard to shuffle some people to find a spot for the incoming party and gave me another 24 hours to get the issue fixed. With the extra 24 hrs, I was able to find and fix the problem myself, which saved me about $300! Thank you!!! Yes, this is a parking lot for convenience, not a destination park and I knew that going in. But it is quiet enough and safe. Everyone was very friendly and nice. - startech

Sites are soooo small. VERY tight to even pull in. Sharing water with your neighbor. NO WIFI. I asked why I couldn't log in. She said,"Too many people." False advertising if you can't use it! - KarenE85

We understood when reserving the site that this is not a resort. But we did not expect such a small, jammed parking lot. The website pictures show some trees and nice motorhomes. There are very few of either. We actually had to ask the family next to our site to roll up their outdoor rug so we could park! The sites are that tight! I'll say that our site was somewhat level with full hookups. However, the "WIFI available throughout the park" is not true. At check-in we were given a disclaimer that they were not responsible for the WiFi working and that it is shut down at times for maintenance. We believe that is just their way of advertising good service without providing even poor service! There are also several older trailers that appear to live here full time. It just doesn't feel like a safe place to stay. We will NOT stay here again. - chefb1969

The campground is very well maintained. Almost all sites are partly or mostly shaded. The roads and parking pads are asphalt. Picnic tables and fire rings in a pea gravel area adjacent to parking pad. Some sites have awesome views. - osuallen

Mueller is beautiful and has amazing views. Tons of hiking trails. The park has a lot of options for different size rigs but gets pretty tight for larger RV's. If you have a bigger camper/trailer we would suggest going with a spot that is one size larger than you would normally get. The pull throughs can be narrow to get in and out of because there are so many large trees all around. - Team Lobster

We camped in site #45 (30A electric only) at Mueller State Park. Water tank fill stations on road to campsite. Beautiful park. Great hiking. Abundant wildlife. Would definitely stay here again. - drfife

Nice park in in town. Downtown within walking distance or take the free shuttle. Very friendly staff. Laundry, cleans rest rooms and showers.
Sites level, but very tight. Sites 26-47 back up to a creek. - fyrmnjim

Like other reviews of this park, I found it to be a very pretty park with lots of trees. The sites are a little close together, but the park employees are very helpful and will help you back into your site and even hook you up to the utilities. There is a small, one lane bridge that crosses over a creek to get into the park. You might be afraid to drive over it with your RV, but I saw several larger 40 foot motorhomes in the park, so I imagine the bridge can take the weight. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and can help you with advice about local attractions.
My only negative comment (and this is a very minor point mind you) is that this park does not even try to include free WIFI for their campground. The good news about this is that you won't even try to get a signal and just set up your own hotspot (Verizon works well here), rather than spend your valuable time trying to get the free WIFI signal that won't work. Your time is better spent at this park trying out the walking trails that are next to the park. - Servant of Cats

We spent one week here and enjoyed every minute of it. Price reflects weekly rate. The location is fabulous - close to Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Pike's Peak and, of course, downtown Manitou Springs. Check-in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Because there is a one-lane bridge to enter/exit the property, there is always staff nearby to help navigate traffic as necessary. This is particularly beneficial when first arriving. They even help you back into your site. The sites are fairly close together but we find that typical for most parks near to town. There is a path behind the property perfect for dog-walking. Verizon cell and Sprint MiFi worked well. Our particular site wouldn't allow DirecTV to contact a satellite as there was a big tree blocking the signal. While there are many large (wonderful) trees on the property, I suspect most sites would offer satellite capability. We would definitely stay at this park again.
For our site (not sure about other sites?) - we had a shared power pole and water supply meaning each had two connections - one for us and one for the coach next to us. So - for us - we had to run the power cord and water hose under our coach to get to the connections. The staff very kindly helped to set it up when we pulled in. Our sewer was on the correct side. Kind of an odd set-up but it worked fine. - GottaGoNow
