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. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

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

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.

Great location for being so close to Denver, next to Prospect Park and a greenbelt area with walking trails. Park manager was very friendly and helpful and more than made up for a mistake in our reservations. One minor dislike was being assigned to a specific bathroom, which if in use, would not allow us to access one not in use. Overall, a well maintained park, probably the best in the area, and we would not hesitate to stay there again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Prospect RV Park is located off of a very busy ( 44th Ave ) in Wheat Ridge and is a very old and popular park for the locals. For this evaluator, it didn’t give us the impression of camping but rather of being in a very tight, dusty gravel parking lot surrounded on all sides by homesteaders/long term campers. They do have good electric, their water pressure is high ( pressure reducer strongly recommended ), there were no bothersome highway or train noises, contrary to a previous reviewers comment, and they have the unique feature of one of the best large, individually assigned shower/bathrooms facility assessable with a personal key that we have ever encountered in 7 years of RVing. There were no discern able in park activities as everyone here seems to get up and go off to work in the AM, return in the PM and close their doors to repeat the process the next day. They are adjacent to the city owned Prospect Lake and park and you can to exercise a pet or yourself with a walk or a bike ride about the lake. On the down side, our site was very narrow, we never could fully extend our awnings and we had to run both our power and water connections under the rig. We chose this campground because of its relative proximity to our extended family and it definitely met our needs. In our opinion, it is the best of the moderately priced Denver area campgrounds and based on their high occupancy rate, reservations and a reconfirming phone call is strongly recommended. If in the area, we would use this campground again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park has easy access of I-70 and is located near Prospect Park and other retailers. It may not have perfectly level spots or all the fancy updates, but the staff more than make up for perceived lack. Only stayed a few days however after the nightmare of the Flying Saucer, Prospect Park was a pure joy and we'll stay here again. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this RV park for five nights. Prospect Place is near I-70. It has 65 sites surrounding a private residence. Some are full hookup, others have electric and water only. WI-FI is free and numerous local DTV stations can be easily received. There is a dump station which is free to park patrons. Two spaces are reserved for one night stays. Though the official name is RV park and campground, a sign indicated “no tent sites.” The entire area is gravel surfaced and some of the sites are very close together but there are some trees and the place is immaculately clean and quiet. One feature we found unique among all the public and private campgrounds we've stayed at over the years are the “private” bathrooms assigned to each site. The laundry room and 8 bathrooms are located in a building next to the office. To enter one must first punch in a door code and then use a key give to you at check-in to access the specific bathroom assigned to the site. The bathroom contains toilet, sink and shower. The bathrooms and the laundry room which has 6 full size washers and 4 dryers were also immaculate. When we reserved our site we spoke with a very personable agent. She refused to take our credit card # in case we experienced a delay or change in plans which worried us a bit but when we arrived, she had our reservation intact. Unlike many other parks, we were not required to pay for our stay in advance. The office staff gave us recommendations for local places to get a propane refill and an oil change. We used both and were completely satisfied with the service and friendliness of the proprietors. In a past visit to Denver we stayed at Chatfield State Park which is a little further out from the city than The Prospect. While we liked Chatfield and also would probably like Cherry Creek SP, neither had sites available for the dates we needed so we felt very lucky to learn about The Prospect. Since the state parks charge a daily vehicle pass fee plus a reservation fee in addition to the cost of the campsite, The Prospect turned out to be considerably less expensive. There is a greenspace park around the corner with wildlife viewing and fishing. Also nearby is a Camping World and a TA truck stop and a produce market as well as other gas stations and some restaurants and take out places. We're glad we found Prospect Place and would definitely stay here the next time we visit Denver. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park for the past 5 years. We find this park to be the best place to stay, with friendly and helpful staff. We would not stay at any other park in the area, as they are not user friendly. Before we found Prospect RV Park, we did stay at a couple of other parks and found them not too user friendly, ie; not being able to use a awning. At Prospect Park awning use is acceptable. We alway have a space reserved for us, on any day we request in advance. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was an acceptable place to stay except for one major problem - TRAIN NOISE. The trains were so frequent that we got very little sleep. We'll never stay here again; our sleep is too valuable. We camped at Prospect RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
