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 an older park but is very clean and neat,it is a little remote but town is 10 minutes away on a very good divided highway. The laundry only had 3 working washers and 1 dryer so we went into town to a very nice laundromat overall a quiet convenient park - Bruce and Janette

We stayed in this park for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Our site was gravel but there are sites with some grass. The view of the mountains here is spectacular with beautiful sunsets. The large dog park was very nice for our big dog and there is a walking path to walk your dog. The water is well water that is quite hard, we double filtered it but did not use it for drinking or cooking. We would stay at this park again. - Travelindog

Our site was fairly large though not long enough if we didn't want to unhitch. Wifi was better than most western campgrounds. it looks like the owners are putting a lot into this and have some way to go, but the place is well kept (spotty grass, but this is the desert). There is a walking trail around the campground with lots of flowers. From the highway it looks kind of barren amongst the sagebrush and bunch grass, but there are some trees and it looks better when you are there. Nice views of the Rockies. The woman owner is quite exuberant and friendly. We have passed this campground many times on our way to Pueblo and it is a lot better inside than it looks from US 50. Pueblo has little to offer for campgrounds other than the state park. Fort's in the city does not answer the phone, take messages or answer e-mails. The KOA north of Pueblo is going downhill fast. Haggards is west of Pueblo West and about 20 miles west of the city of Pueblo, but is a fairly fast (65 mph) trip into Pueblo. There is a KOA 20 miles south if you are on I-25. We were pleased with our stay. - AirstreamGene

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

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

This RV park is quite a distance from town which I didn't realize when I made reservations. There was a lot of work being done on I-25 which made driving through Colorado Springs quite a chore. Upon arrival the checkin was smooth and we were guided to our site which was a good thing because we never would have round it on our own! Office staff very friendly.
Our site was a nice one EXCEPT we faced Barrett Rd. which is the main route for a quarry further up the way. That meant from 6:30 AM to 4 PM there were huge trucks going back and forth which made a lot of noise. Paying $52 for our spot I felt was outrageous for that reason. As for the park, it is a very busy place, very well kept with nice landscaping. I would consider staying here again if we were to return to Colorado Springs, but I would make certain we were not close to the road. - cchall112

Pro's: Beautiful park in a beautiful setting. Very well-kept park with lots of room and space. Good store and an excellent lounge with a great big TV for camper's use. Friendly and helpful staff. Had 3 deer within 10 feet of our RV at night. Very cool! Mostly shaded lots. Con's: Almost all gravel! Gravel everywhere and hardly a lick of grass! Even the enclosed "dog park" essentially had no grass?! The gravel actually hurt my dog's feet. And, she won't go to the bathroom except on grass. She was not at all happy at this park. It was a long walk from our site to the bathroom and the store. While there were multiple choices for WiFi, we kept getting kicked off the WiFi. And, there was no pool, but a hot tub. However, it was not open while we were there due to maintenance issues. No Verizon cell service at all from within the park?! Lastly, we left early because of the issues that they had no grass for our dog, but they refused to give us a refund for the night we didn't stay!!! - Alexhouse

Friendly, cooperative staff with a can-do attitude. This is a large, beautiful, "out in the country" park. A bit pricey for the location, but a very nice place to stay. Our site was level. Off-leash dog park was fairly small, but a welcome feature. Combination private bathroom and shower was convenient and clean. On site store for snacks, ice cream, and supplies. The WiFi was terrific -- very fast, with great coverage everywhere in the park. (No trouble streaming video.) We would stay here again. - Terry Pinetta

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

Staff friendly and knowledgeable of area attractions. Great mountain views. Very clean. Allowed pets and had several grassy areas to walk them. Full hook-ups & wifi. Basketball, bocce ball & shuffle board areas. Each site has a concrete patio, picnic table and fire pit. Seriously the best shower I've ever had in a bath house-clean tiled walls & floor, big shower head, lots of pressure. - Jen T

Very nice park and employees go above and beyond to help. I actually saw one of them unhooking a car and helping a couple hook up. Very clean and great views. We did the Rocky Mountain wolf rescue. It was amazing. We also did the train through the gorge. Both were fantastic. We will be back. - Texas tumbleweed

Very nice park ideally located to Canon City and the Royal Gorge. Sites have concrete pads w/picnic tables. Park is immaculate and shows much pride of ownership - the owner has spent money to make the park very desirable. Highly recommend this park if you are in the area. - Larkspur1

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
