We were wanting to stay near Denver and lucked out to get a reservation at Prospect RV Park. The park is in a great location about 15 miles from the 16th Street Mall. The owners are very welcoming and the park is clean. Sites are fairly close together, but hookups are positioned well. Wifi was not great but we were about as far from the office as you could get. And the office advised that the wifi was for light surfing and not streaming. Lot is gravel and our site was level. The laundry facility was nice and clean. No frills, but the location can't be beat for visiting downtown Denver. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Needed a place for 2 nights near Denver. This park looked okay from previous reviews and due to lack of parks in the Denver area and very poor reviews on nearly all parks we chose to stay at Prospect. The park was fully booked, most units were permanent or seasonal. It was 95 degrees. We had site 10, an end site. The electric power was supposedly 50 amp but output was insufficient for our coach. On leg was 112 and other fluctuated between 105 to 107 causing pulsating surge. Park claimed they hadn't experienced issue before but later admitted they had previous issues with sites at the end of service line. However, another RV owner in a Prevost was also in the office reporting he had the same electrical issues for several days. We had to use our generator during the day but would not be allowed to run it at night. We were able to use a 20 amp outlet on pedestal to run an extension cord through a window to power an electric fan. Since we could not locate any other parks in area and that the TravelAmerica Center 2 blocks away and the Walmart would not permit overnight RV parking we were stuck. The owner did advise the park was built in 1988 on a "shoe string budget" and has outdated aluminum wiring. She willingly accepted my proposal for us to stay for 2 nights and only charge for 1 night. If you have a newer model RV and require minimal electrical to power your unit be aware that this park may not fit your needs. The park is otherwise okay but no frills. Location is good for access to I-70 and is quiet. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park a few times and find it very convenient for access to Denver. It is adjacent to a town park that provides a great dog walking. We plan to stay here again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The best part of this park is its location. It is close to Downtown Denver and all of Denver attractions just off of I-70. It is also right on a walking/biking path along Clear Creek that runs for miles with 4 small lakes that you can fish as well. It is also near great shopping. The park itself is all gravel with pull-thrus, back-ins and pull-ins. The sites have a split rail fence seperating each site. Kind of cute. They also have a concrete pad for a picnic table. No fire pit but you can use a propane fire pit. They do offer free wi-fi. No pool. They have a restroom with showers and a laundry room. It is a very popular park so make reservations. The rate we paid was a weekly rate. There is a 14.5% room tax on top of that! We have stayed here several times before and would deffinitely return. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 1 week in the park. The excellent rating is a results of the staffs hospitality and accommodation's of our needs. We had to be in the area for a family memorial service and needed the extra help. Thank you.........the park is not a luxury resort but has all the amenities an rver needs. Easy on/off, great dog friendly public park access, convenient to Denver, mountain day trips and sports outing. RV parks in Denver are limited, reservations recommended. We would easily return.

This was our second stay here. The park is very quiet at night, despite its location in an urban area. A town park is adjacent that makes for a great place to walk dogs, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only minor negative is that the grounds are not as picked up as they could be, with scraps of trash here and there. Otherwise, it's one of the best urban parks, and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Got the last spot when I called a week ahead of time. Got there and found a 100% gravel RV park where 80% of the 70 sites were "permanent" campers. Told us they had WiFi and gave us login code. Logged in and got nothing. Office said someone was using an extender. A "resident" camper said it was an ongoing issue. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The owner and the manager here don't like to "accommodate", their word, "you people who only want to be here a few good months of the year". That is a direct quote. The park is cramped, full of long term residents, a black gravel parking lot surrounding a private home, not a great view, IMO. It does not have 50 amp service but operates off of a weird system of two separate inputs for each site. You cannot run both air conditioners if you have two so it's hard to keep a larger rig cool and the breaker blows when you run the air and another electric item like the microwave or hair dryer and there is very little shade. The power fails over and over on hot days for the entire park. The Wi-Fi is useless. The bathrooms and laundry are clean but not enough washers and dryers for the amount of users. Signs tell you you have 10 minutes to bath if you use their shower facilities, I never did. The sites are overrun with rabbits including a dead one under the RV next to me when I first arrived. The adjacent park is small and the walkways are usually covered in goose poo, which makes walking the dogs a challenge. Basically a poor choice but not many good ones in the Denver area. I won't go back. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

The first thing my wife said when we pulled in was "we are NOT staying here!". After I calmed her down, I went to the office, which was closed. They had left a packet with our name on it which included directions to our site and a key for the bathrooms / laundry. The map indicated we were in spot 56, but when i drove to it there was a ramshackle 70's model travel trailer parked in 56, so I just pulled into the spot next to it and made do, hoping we wouldn't have to move, which we didn't. The entire park surface is crushed black gravel, with no landscaping other than the trees that surround the border of the park. The park appears to be 90% permanent residents, and some of the units were in pretty bad shape. We had the aforementioned beat up trailer on one side, and a permanent resident who ran a "dogs that scare geese" operation on the other side. She wasn't real friendly, and I got the impression that she was annoyed that we were there. Wi-fi was non-existent. Our spot had no sewer so we had to use the dump station on the way out. The water spigot at the dump station was locked down tight, so i couldn't flush the black tank or rinse off the tank fittings. About the only things this park has going for it is the fact that it has a great location in Denver within the city, and the little park with the lake that is adjacent to it. For $30/night, I can overlook the minor blemishes, although I doubt my wife will let us stay here again next time we roll through Denver. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I just want to reiterate the last reviewers comments and add a few of my own. I was there on a monthly rate which was very expensive given the fact that it is a big gravel parking lot, parts of which become a mud pit when it rains. The owner constantly harasses guests with nasty threatening notes on doors. I have been full timing for years. Always keep my site neat, pay on time etc. the owner, however, because some guests created issues instead of addressing specific residents, she wrote incredibly nasty, insulting, threatening letters and put them on everyone's doors. Finding Rv space in the Denver area is almost impossible. I am sure that is the main reason she is still in business. Thankfully we finally found another place. We couldn't wait to leave. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small older park with some long timers. It was clean but small for a 40 foot motor home. Normal parking is front to back so we were assigned two sites in order to get our motor home to fit but was charged for only one site. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We needed a one night stay as we were on our way up the mountains to a camphost job, and there was still a bit too much snow up high. The staff were very accomodating and got us a spot to wait things out. This is great in-city campground, with excellent access and good facilities. We'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice, level sites on gravel immediately adjacent to a large park with a pond, where dogs could be walked. Immaculate private showers and bathrooms. Very quiet even though quite close to I-70. Office staff went above and beyond to help guests. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a family run campground for over 35 years so they have many return campers. I loved the access to the huge park adjacent to the campground. Laundry facilities very reasonable. Nice to have individual bathrooms. We only stayed two nights because we needed to have better internet which this park definitely did not have. They didn't even ask for money upfront since we were unsure how long we were going to stay. Very gracious about why we needed to leave. Sites are a little small but it is an older park. They do have a weekly rate which is nice. If the internet had been better we absolutely would have stayed. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.
