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

We were supposed to stay only one night as a stop over to bring the rig in for service in Fountain and then head north to Monument to stay for 4 days and visit family in Denver. We were trying to stay ahead of a storm as we traveled 4 hours. The storm finally hit us when we were 5 mins from the campground and got pummeled with quarter size hail! GPS takes you 2 miles past campground to make a uturn when you really could have made the left into the campground but we were fighting the hail and didn't notice. So we wound up having to come right back into the storm to get to the park. Check in was very friendly and was told the turn would be tight due to someone parking their 5th wheel too far back. (why they didn't have them correct I don't know) But we maneuvered it. All hookups worked well. They are on well water so a filter is highly recommended if you don't have one. Had a dog park and a walking trail and propane. We left and put the rig in for maintenance and service. We decided to go check out the park we were going to because it sounded like it got snow the night before from that storm. 8 Inches + That is not our idea of fun! We canceled that rez and rebooked another night here and decided to head back west instead of north for now. They were very accommodating and friendly. We would stay an overnight here again. - Fulltimingit

The owner was fantastic and very hospitable. She is super nice and friendly. Made sure we had everything we needed. Even the prices of goods they have in reserve for sale are not overpriced. The park itself is very clean. They have nice little homey touches everywhere. My family stayed here in 2 camp sites. In a travel trailer and my parents in their fifth wheel. We will definitely stay here again when we come back this way. - Michaela Mays

Wide sites, extremely friendly owners. Wifi good, Verizon Cell and internet service good, satellite access excellent. We were out sightseeing, when the owner called us that there was a storm warning. That kind of service we have never seen in our 5 years of full timing. - roybrody

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

Excellent "campground" stay with pine trees, wildlife wandering through the park, fire pits at every site and rock retaining walls separating sites. Excellent general store and camper lounge hosting ice cream socials on Saturday nights and waffle breakfasts on Sunday morning. Park is a long way from central Colorado Springs - actually closer to Canon City so not an ideal spot as a base camp if your focus is sightseeing the Colorado Springs activities. But a perfect place to just hang out and enjoy the great outdoors. Dog park was all dirt but the playground was nice. - jjones5996

Seems like a nice park overall. Friendly staff when we arrived. Some sites have views some don't. Some sites are satellite friendly, some are not. Some sites have basic cable, but it's really a basic DirecTV package. Lot's of trees and deer in the park. About a 15-20 minutes drive to Colorado Springs. Passport America members beware... They have a policy that they can and will move you to a different site if someone comes along, paying full price, and wants your reserved site. They did not tell us this when I made my reservation 6 months out. Thus our rating of "Bad" for service. Now, they did call us a week before we arrived informing us it was a possibility but when I asked why she was very evasive and ultimately told me a lie that they were doing some maintenance work. When we did arrived (and expressed our displeasure) the gentleman checking us in did extend the PPA discount to the full 5 days we were booked. Instead of satellite and view friendly site 84, they put us in site 9 which is large, level, shaded and has the basic cable. Too many trees for my satellite. The negatives though outweigh the positives in my opinion. 9 is right at the entrance so you get to hear all the traffic coming and going all night long. You have a great view of the trash dumpsters and get to wake up to the sound of campers throwing their trash in them a 5:30 AM. - jprisbe

This campground is a gem, tucked away in the mountains south of Colorado Springs a short distance. The sites are arranged in such a way that you feel like your truly away in the mountains. We had a pull thrunsite which was huge and accommodated our trailer and Truck hooked up. Beside us was a Class A motorhome which had plenty of room also. Beside where we put the trailer was a large area with a picnic table and fire ring. All the staff/owners were so very welcoming and nice and we were made to feel relaxed, at ease and that nothing was too much trouble. We stayed here for 3 nights and were sorry to leave. On Saturday night there was an Ice Cream Social in the lounge area beside the office and on Sunday morning a Waffle Bar. $1 per person for each and both were super and it was fun to meet fellow campers. From here we visited the Air Force Academy and The Garden of the Gods. We also drove to Canon (a short drive away) and took the train ride through the Royal Gorge. We recommend all these side Trips! We rated this park 20 out of 10!!! - KiwiYankee

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

The staff was very accommodating and polite starting with the phone reservations till the time we departed. The view is beautiful, and the resort is close to main attractions and downtown. The facilities are extremely clean with new bathrooms, a cozy area for BBQ and chilling. We chose the deluxe site and had a built-in fire-pit and concrete slab at our door. I love animals being a vegan, especially horses, and we had the pleasure to enjoy looking at them from our back window every day. Thank you for our wonderful stay. We will be back! - Gracy Keeler

This is a well laid out campground, making it easy to maneuver a big rig. The grounds are attractive & well-kept. The women's restroom & showers is newly renovated & is very nicely done. The free wi-fi was OK, but at times bogged down. Considering the park was not even 1/2 full, I can see that using the wi-fi during the busy summer months could be an issue. Web site says there is cable TV, but there is not. For this price, comparing to other campgrounds, there should be cable & the wi-fi should be better. If we stay here again, I would request site 7,8, or 9 to best enjoy the gorgeous mountain view from our rear window. - 2togoNebraska

We had a pull through and found site to be level and well set up. We were on gravel. It does show that much work has been done, to either fix it up or keep it up. - peddy dick

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
