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 nice clean campground with good pull through site pads. We must point out they have a great free run Dog Park (1/4 acre) that our dogs enjoyed. Great staff and services. - Louhasaboat

We love this RV Park it was a real find and we can't fault it at all. Easy access from US50 between Pueblo West & Canon City. Fantastic views across the prairie to the mountains. Big sites, huge pet area, walking path, great pool and the best sunsets. Wifi excellent some of the best we have ever had in an RV Park. Very good for an overnight stop or like us a 2 week stay as there is so much to do in the sounding area. Only 30 miles to Colorado Springs via a scenic state route. Super lovely owners who really care about their park and their guests. - Harris England

really enjoyed our stay. Site was large. gravel. Parked the truck on the side.In the high plains and very dry but not much dust. Out far enough from Pueblo west that the nights were lovely. Staff was great. Pool was great. Its a small well run campground. We would camp here again. - luv2gowalkabout

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

This was our 4th stay at the park and it has changed considerably over the years. The park is now dominated by full time residents which have taken every space away from the road up the hill behind the office. Travelers are in the lower part of the park close to the road. At 6am every week day the gravel trucks start to run until 3pm. There is at least one truck, on average, every minute and many times 3 or 4 trucks pass in a group. I realize the park can't control the trucks, but future campers should be aware. The sites are nicely graveled, but the roads are down to the dirt so there is a considerable amount of dust. The park wells are dry so water is trucked in during the day. In the morning the water pressure is very low. I measured it at 15 psi. Once the tanks are full the water pressure go up to 45 psi. - 5rhauler

Stayed here for 8 nights in late June. The 8th night was free. We really like this park. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Sites were large and well maintained. Lots of shade, but we were still able to use our satellite. Very, very quiet at night. No cell service on ATT or Verizon. The WiFi was basically unusable - especially in the evening when all of the data hogs started streaming. There is truck traffic on the road Monday thru Thursday. They go slow and we didn't hear them. Good place to relax. Not a good place if you need cell or reliable WiFi. - FireFlyer

This is a nicely landscaped park with gravel roads and sites and lots of trees. No ATT signal or OTA TV. There is cable in the front part of the park, though those sites are closer to the road and the traffic noise from the gravel trucks that is mentioned in other reviews. WiFi was decent at times and unusable at other times, probably when traffic was high. The park is a little pricey for the amenities but we would stay here again. - lorangl

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

This is a huge park with hundreds of sites on both sides of the reservoir. Absolute best internet connectivity I've had in a state park - AirstreamR
Jun 2014 - $20.00
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

This is probably the cleanest park we've ever visited in our 8 years of RVing. This was our 2nd visit here in the past 2 years. The owner cleans every site after it is vacated and levels the gravel. The concrete pads are white as they were 2 years ago and tables are spotless. Views of the mountains are beautiful. Everyone in the office was polite and courteous. We will definitely stay here again. The only concern I would address is the "NO REFUND" policy. Full payment is expected when reservations are made and there are no refunds for any matter. This caused us to make a shorter reservation than we would have liked but when you are making reservations a month or so in advance few of us change our plans unless necessary. - User1828

Stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. Place and service was outstanding. Plenty of room to pull in my rig and park the truck. Quite at night. Older crowd here but very sociable. Easy to get to all the events and Canyon City. Will come back again. - Luthersr

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
