Hard to find something wrong with this campground. It's small and sites are walk up, so get there early! Though sites are relatively close together, it still felt as though we had privacy nestled into the trees. Very close to the maroon bells so spending the day there is a must! Tons of hiking and amazing sites to be seen. Our campsite had a Firepit and a bear locker. There are toilets as well. Would definitely recommend this site to all. A little stream near by we walked down to and enjoyed to noises of nature.
We reserved our site about 2 weeks in advance and were so excited. However when we arrived we were very upset to learn our spot was a small gravel driveway that was actually to be split with another site, and our neighbors had a huge RV and a jeep and we're taking up most of the space. There was zero privacy, it was very awkward and uncomfortable. So much so yay we got up early the best day and left. We noticed a lot of spots were like this there as well. We will not return nor would we recommend this spot to a friend.
We drove to the mountains from Denver without a solid plan on what we were doing/where we were staying. The weather forecast was iffy but we needed a break from the city so we packed the car up and went. We drive around checking out different camp grounds in the area and came across Prospector, and we were thrilled. We had THE most perfect site with an incredible view of the lake and the mountains- seriously perfect. It was private, and quiet, had a fire pit at our site and toilets just up the road (saw at lest one other on the other side of the grounds). There was a pathway to the lake and the grounds were only about 10-15 mins from town but felt much further with how secluded it was. Easily one of our new favorite spots.
