The landscape surrounding the Royal Gorge Region ranges from forested mountains to rich orchards to deep canyons. Likewise, the available activities and cultural opportunities cover everything from ziplining and four wheeling to exploring dinosaur fossils and prison history. So, it should come as no surprised that the Royal Gorge Region also offers some unique lodging options. If you’re going to spend the day rafting, walking across one of the county’s deepest canyons, or seeing the sights from a helicopter, well, a typical motel just won’t do.

For a totally unique stay in the Royal Gorge Region, book a night in one of Starlite Classic Campground’s vintage campers—imagine lots of teal and pink. These campers take you back to the days of Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnez, and with names like Flamingo Lounge, Sally, Sophie, and Tiki Bago, you might find yourself getting a bit attached.

An outdoor concierge waits for you at Echo Canyon Campground, where you can choose from vacation rentals, rustic cabins, tent sites, and RV sites. Located just outside Canyon City, near the rim of the Royal Gorge, employees at Echo Canyon are ready to reserve your tickets for any of the area’s many attractions. And because it’s also a rafting company, they’ll get your river trip booked, too.

Step back in time at the Florence Rose Bed and Breakfast, a restored 1886 red brick Victorian home with many original features. Each room is styled to the period with four poster beds and decorated with antiques. Surrounding the bed and breakfast are gardens, patios, and sitting areas. So, when you’re outside enjoying your tea, you truly feel as though you’re part of the Victorian era.
