Very quiet with friendly staff. Secure site with locked gate and onsite camp host. You do need to have a generator because there is no electric hookup. All in all a very nice stay. - 2yoopers

Called him at the last minute and he confirmed a space. He led us on 3 wheeler to a spot since there is no map and no numbered spaces. Cranked up antenna to get stations at Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Super nice guy.
There were many trees and routes around them and it was pretty quiet. Restrooms/showers and laundry room were great. Full hookups were super easy. No pool but good views of the area (and prairie dogs). Coyote sang one night. Highway nearby not nearly as noisy as other parks. Park had signs on the highway and was easy to find. - John M_Wichita

We're here over Memorial Day weekend and arrived here with a few surprises because the website sells the place pretty well. The dirt road getting back here is super washed out and tricky for any low clearance trailer, car or camper. We arrived late and there are virtually no lights here nor was there late arrival information. We just picked a spot and hoped for the best. There is little grass, mostly dirt. The "solar heated pool" was not open. And we expected to be able to hike or walk the fossil area, only to find out after arrival this requires an escort and there is a fee. Another drawback were the "long term" campers, although the place was cleaner and more tidy than other campgrounds with tenants. The people working were kind enough to not charge for our first night late arrival and seemed overall pretty nice. If you're looking for a place to park, hang out and maybe hit the hills, this is probably your place. - kpieper876

Price is based on the full-hookup monthly rate. If you are looking for continual activities, water park, playgrounds, and miniature golf, this may not be the campground for you. If you are into quiet laid-back mountain views with plenty of trails to stroll among Rocky Mountain junipers and pinion pines, this unique family-run campground on a working ranch might well be just what you are looking for. The local birds include several varieties of hummingbirds, scrub jays, mountain chickadees, canyon and spotted towhees, and pink sided and red backed juncos. Nearby fields are alive with prairie dogs, mountain bluebirds, and the occasional road runner. The campground is well laid out with small trees near most campsites. The bathroom/shower area is clean and inviting as is the pool that is heated by a solar array. Well-behaved, non-aggressive dogs are welcome. Satellite television works well, the Verizon hotspot has no signal, but the camp Wifi is sufficient for browsing and emails. Phone signals are iffy but our Wilson signal booster gives a reasonable signal on AT&T phones. This is the high desert on a working cattle ranch so there may be some dust at times and a few cattle might wander through the campground. They are gentle beasts that add to the ambiance of the place without paying much attention to the campers. The a mile long dirt road once you turn into the ranch gate is a bit bumpy but easily managed by any size rig. We’ve camped throughout the United States and this particular campsite in this campground ranks among the top 3 campsites that we’ve occupied in our travels. We would definitely come back if we are in this area again. We are camping here in a travel trailer. Our original intent was stay here for the month of April, however, we’ve liked it so well we have extended our stay through the month of May. Still here enjoying springtime in the Rockies! - Kate

Advertised as having Wi-Fi but it was not available and this was one of our reasons for choosing this park. The staff was friendly and helpful, but since Wi-Fi was a requirement for us (cell phones did not work either), we chose not to stay the full month as we intended. While this park was pet friendly it was almost too friendly. Dogs were off leash and were not picked up after which spoiled the surroundings. It is remote and quiet and has a beautiful pool. - snarkey

This is a great little RV Park, it's very clean and well laid out. The sites are nice size and not right on top of each other. The one thing I like is there are not long term residences here like you see in so many parks today. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Will put this one on my list of places to stay when going Colorado. - mo.wander

Park is centrally located for visiting Pueblo and Canon City. The park appears to be isolated 10 miles out of town, but is actually a quick drive either direction to town. The park is nicer than is appears from the road. It's location with great sunrises and sunsets makes this park very fun. It is an old KOA campground the owners are rehabilitating. The current owners live on site and are way above most in attitude and making you feel like your welcome. There are no long term trashy trailers in this park unlike the one 10 miles down then road. The one drawback is the park is on well water with high iron content. You need to come with full water tank for cooking and drinking or water filter. The owners are very up front about this. We used the showers on site, which are kept clean. And brought a tank of water and did fine. The park has a nice sized pool which is well maintained. Bring your binoculars to view the wild life that live around the park. The park has many returnees that use this park. We enjoyed our stay here. - Randoni

This parks appears to be one of the old original KOA's that has become a private campground. Owners are great folks. Very nice and accommodating. We had a large pull through site. The only negative is their well water has high iron and a high mineral taste. Bring lots of bottled water. - SuperRep
Sep 2015 - $35.00
Although the showers and restrooms were clean and the people in the office were friendly, this place was dusty with horse stables next to us, and a junky camper that looked like a permanent fixture a few sites down. Probably will look elsewhere next time through. - Colorado Vagabond

20, 30 amp outlets were not in good working order. Sewer receptacle was not conveniently located. Small sites. Mainly long term tenants and OLD units. No patio area. - Icfman
Mar 2015 - $30.00
Campground is no frills and very reasonable on a monthly basis. No amenities except for a bath house, which was extremely old and worn but kept very clean. Camp hosts very helpful and friendly. Mostly permanent residents but there are a couple of sites for travelers. - clongest

Large, level sites with lots of trees gave you the feeling you were camping in a state campground. We arrived after the office closed but were met at the entrance and guided to our site. The staff was great and helped us get backed in and set up quickly. 50 amp power was stable and good, water pressure was 55 psi, dump port convenient. OTA TV is non-existent. Cellular and hotspot signals are non-existent. The park WiFi was decent. Their cable TV however was pretty awful. The picture on most channels (lower ones especially) was very grainy and fluctuated from bad to worse. All things considered, it was a minor inconvenience and forced us to enjoy the beauty of the area instead. Deer wandered thru regularly and a turkey called out to us one morning. The campground was very clean and well organized. With trails available, hot-tub, playground and a small game room there's something for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back again. - Born2Roam

This park is AMAZING! We stayed here for a short weekend getaway. When we arrived we were met and guided to our space. We didn't bring a tow vehicle, and forgot a few items, which we were thrilled to find they had in the well stocked camp store. They offer movie night and waffle breakfast. This is a family park and you can tell. The best part for us was the wildlife. We were greeted by a heard of deer. We loved our stay and will for sure be back!! - jazander

Really nice RV park. As others have said the sites in this park except sites 1-10 are the largest sites we have encountered. The park is mainly full-timers, but in this case it is an asset. All of the people are super friendly and have organized activities during the week (bingo, taco Tuesdays, breakfast waffles, Halloween party... ). Very strict on the rules but that is what keeps the park looking so nice. Cell coverage was marginal with Verizon. The only real ding is the price. The water pressure would fluctuate a lot, between 20 an 65 psi. We will definitely be back. We camped there in a MH. - newbies2016

We stayed at Echo Canyon for 2 nights, a base for us to visit the Gorge and go White Water Rafting.
Campground is ideally sited as rafting, and restaurants sited opposite campground.
Facilities were clean, WiFi was good, best of all the sites we visited. Some road and helicopter noise. Site is spacious, no close neighbours, staff very helpful.
Would visit again. - Singaporeally

We were only looking for a place to spend two nights that would allow us to see the Royal Gorge and go rafting and this location did that. Despite being a decent sized park, all full hookup sites are right on top of each other and it makes you feel very crowded when the rest of the park is completely open. Site was all dirt and slightly sloped. It was uphill from my sewer connection to the dump spot, even with sewer support holder my tanks would not drain, had to drive to the dump station on the way out to empty the tanks. Also, water and electric connections are at one end of the site and sewer is that the other end, all hoses were stretched to their limits and I only have a 26' camper. No cable and there were no over the air channels to be found. WiFi was good and cell reception was okay (AT&T). Main issue was the stickers, everywhere you walked you ran into them, except the gravel drive, they even worked their way through our ground carpet. Road noise was not all that bad and we had a site right near the front of the property. One of our nights was a Saturday and we could barely hear the live band when we were sitting outside of our camper and not at all once inside. Yes there is a helicopter but they have talked to the pilot and he rarely overflies the campground, even if the winds make him takeoff in the direction of the campground he quickly turns and flies over the neighboring farm land. I would stay here again for how close it is to their rafting company, located across US 50. - Ian B

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

Beautiful park with large sites overlooking Lake Pueblo. There is no access to swim in the lake except at a swimming beach, which is several miles away. Each site has a paved pad with a fire ring and sheltered (top and one side) over a table. There is a $7 daily use fee in addition to the camping fee. Many of the sites are pull-through. There is a paved bike path throughout the park, which has several other campgrounds. - SideBySiders

This is one of three campgrounds in Pueblo Lake State Park. This one does have electric hookups as well as flush toilets and showers (not available in winter months). We enjoyed our stay here. The views from our site and overlooking the cliffs were fantastic. This is a very dry region, so not much green grass or trees. The sites are very large, and some can accomodate big rigs and boat trailers with ease. Note, rate does not reflect $7.00 entry fee into park. - Fitzjohnfan

Nice park, not very big which is fine. Some of the sites are for sale for clients who want to build out and stay a while all good. Slow Wifi frustrating as the office said it should work well. We call ahead and asked for 3 nights which was good, when we checked in we asked if our site was available for two extra nights and they said yes. We made reservation for the Train ride and when back the next day to extent our stay they had rented our site. We could move sites for an upgrade fee, but we would miss our train ride. We payed the upgrade, but will not return. - JeffnAnita

The staff are very friendly and keep the park very tidy. There is one bath house for the park with two toilets and two showers for men, identical for women. Showers and bath room are clean. Easy drive to Canon City, close to skyline drive. When making a reservation, inquire if your site connections are on the left side. Some of the sites share a water faucet, and the power may be on the incorrect side. They work fine just make sure you have enough hose etc. to make the connection. There are some sites with afternoon shade, most of the premium sites have no shade. I'm not real sure on the 9 rating on this park. It's nice and clean but basically provides a place to stay. There is not much else provided here. Wifi works well. - Randoni

The park is delightful. The owners/operators were very helpful with our reservation and greeted us in the drive when we arrived. We extended our stay with no problem. The showers are the best! Our site was a pull in site facing an open pasture allowing us to leave the front curtains open to enjoy the morning sunrise. Tow vehicle parking is separate and right next to the RV. - 2OldFolks

Stayed here two nights to visit friends in Purblo. Good choice. Passport America rate of $16 is outstanding. Gravel roads and pull thru sites. Large off leash area for dogs. No cable TV but good OTA TV and wide open for Satellite. Friendly owners. Quiet. Did not use or look at bathroom/showers. Would stay here again. - dscheibe

We made a reservation and were told they would save it for us even though we were coming in after dark. Were told to call and would get checked in. Did that, then the lady says she will lead us to our spot. That sounds good right? WRONG...she took us out and around the horse pens and put us between two trailer trash spots, weeds in our spot, next to the arena for the night. The horses neighed into the night. One neighbor started his pallet project with chainsaw early in the morning. No Internet, after being told yes they had Internet. The signal doesn't reach the horse pasture! Upon leaving we inquired why no Internet and why were we put out in the horse pasture. He said they were full up and sorry about the Internet. There did seem to be several places that were not filled. Maybe they left at the crack of dawn! I would never ever recommend this place. - Emtnest

We did not use any of the common facilities. We were only here for one night and it was adequate for one nights stay. The only real negative for us was the pad did not have enough gravel so when it rained that night it was very muddy. Dirt roads made things dusty. Although there appeared to be a lot of permanent renters they were friendly and very helpful when we had an issue with the trailer. I would stay here again. - Bichon 2
