Enjoy views of the Royal Gorge Bridge from this 3 acre property that is also close to plenty of outdoor adventures such as white water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, hiking, jeep tours, and more. This land has 360 degree views so you can enjoy the sunrise or sunset - whichever you fancy! Please no parties. Follow local fire ban ordinances. Smokers must dispose of cigarettes immediately after smoking - no butts on the ground please.Park your home-on-wheels kick back and take in the views of the Royal Gorge, Wet Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo mountain range from our high-desert property with 360 degree views. Most of the property is high desert grasses, pinion and juniper pines, but be on the lookout for cactus as well. Access includes full hook ups (electric, water, sewage) with amenities such as WIFI, propane grill, patio with tables and seating, and a fire circle (fires allowed only per local ordinance). The Royal Gorge Trail system is right up the road and can be biked to straight from the property. Or drive up and park at the available trailheads. During summer months there are restaurants, rafting outfitters, zip line tours and more accessible just minutes outside your door. The Royal Gorge Bridge, Dinosaur Museum, Rock Shop and multiple souvenir shops are open year round. Please note that this is a very peaceful site in the mornings and evenings, but it is about 200 yards from the county road so you can hear the passing of vehicles during daytime hours.  The road is not heavily traveled however. There is a KOA campground (you can shower here for $8/person) across the street and use some of their other facilities for a small fee (playground, pool, large blue slide).  The site is less than 10 mins away from Royal Gorge Bridge Park. Downtown Canon City is less than 15 mins away.

Royal Gorge Private Camp
Great Standalone Site
Janine’s site was great with beautiful views all around and plenty of room for a family or group of friends. Janine was communicative and extremely helpful, even going so far as to check-in and make sure we had all electrical cables we needed to hookup to the on-site power and providing a fire pit for us. Would definitely recommend staying at this site, which provides privacy, but is still close to town.

Great spot and as advertised! We had bad weather but I can see where the views and sunsets would’ve been gorgeous. Close to the Royal Gorge and activities. Definitely recommend.

Great stars + close to Royal Gorge!
I needed a spot to sleep in my van the night before running Rim to Rim at the legendary Royal Gorge (which was just a few minutes away)! I felt like I slept at the starting line! Incredible spot with the best star viewing you can get this close to civilization! Thank you for offering up such a beautiful slice of land and hosting on HipCamp!
