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. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

You'll notice the owners of this facility do not promise anything they don't deliver. They are not a "Resort" and don't make like they want to be one. The spaces are gravel but level and clean. Connections are good and well placed. WiFi worked well for the nine days we spent there. Semi-private, key operated bathrooms were always clean and cared for. The laundry was large enough a seemed to be all relatively new machines. There is a nice dog park just a few feet away - even has doggie bags. A great place to stroll or exercise. Not too crowded or too empty. They are dog friendly, but, I do wish some of the owners of dogs would clean up after them better. We found no shortage of bags and disposal spots yet many chose not to use them in the park area. We had no problem in the camp area. Some spaces are fully long/full time but that was fine with us. We met nice people each day, I highly recommend you use this park if you want to be close in and convenient to the big city. If that is not what you want, go somewhere else. We had family in the area and enjoyed being close. We were close to downtown and shopping. We had a great visit. Finally, the office staff and maintenance staff were always pleasant and helpful. They don't always sit in the office; they take short walks or help residents with problems. They were always right back and willing to help. More like being at home than being in a commercial park. Thanks to them, for making our stay better. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed at this RV Park several times before and when in the area we will stay again. It's not fancy, but the sites which are gravel have full hookups with a picnic table. One of the best aspects of this park is that it is located on the Wheat Ridge bike/walking trail along Clear Creek and there are several lakes there, as well for some good walking and relaxing. It is like camping in the woods and is just off of I70 far enough so that there is no highway noise. The $37 rate includes tax. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV Park is located outside of Denver. It's convenient to shopping and sightseeing. The spaces are tight, but we were able to maneuver in and out without issue. It's adjacent to a beautiful city park. The owner, is a gem. She even referred me to her dentist when my crown fell out. The laundry was clean and $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry. The grounds were well kept. I'd definitely stay again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tightly spaced park in an urban area, but OK for a few days if you need to be in the area. I wouldn't want to try to shoehorn a big rig into this park. It seems to be mostly filled with long-term residents, and few transient sites are available. Most transient sites are W/E only. Rabbits have overrun the park and can be seen everywhere, but didn't cause us any problems. Lots of shade trees. Management is friendly despite their unfriendly-sounding signs in the bathrooms ("This is not your private bathroom: Get in and get out, 10 minutes max." and "If you don't like the free Wi-Fi, feel free to purchase your own.") There aren't many choices in the Denver area, and this place worked OK but isn't particularly attractive. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a jewel! We are spending 4 months in the area to visit our daughter and meet up with other family members and this place, even though it's a bit rustic, is in a great location in the city, hike and bike path and lakes are a few steps away. I love this place, and the owner/manager, Nancy is a true blue angel. Lovely person! I would have giving this place a 10, but it doesn't have a pool/hot tub and not paved.

This is an older park with very tight spaces for the many seasonal and few nightly campers. The services are shared for some and the Wi-Fi although a strong signal does not work well. We would have rated this park quite poorly if it had not been for the manager that is more than accommodating to your needs and tries very hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
