Prospectors RV Resort: The Schirados purchased Prospectors RV Resort in May of 2014. They knew immediately this endeavor would be a family affair with such a large property to manage. Rhonda's brother Rick, and her nephew Jerico moved to the property with them. Along with both Mike and Rhonda's parents coming up from Denver and staying weeks on end the rebuilding of the old "Yogi Bear - Jelly Stone Park," now Prospectors RV Resort began.
The Royal Gorge area had a huge setback with the fire of 2013, and all of the businesses worked diligently to restore the tourism here. For the Schirado family, it has been a labor of love for the past 3 seasons. Many things on the 35 acre property were run-down or in great disrepair. Mike and Rhonda's vision is to create the most enjoyable, family-friendly resort on "8-Mile Hill". The Gorge entrance is exactly 8 Miles from Canon City proper - hence the name "8-Mile Hill". With the help of their families, the Schirados every day commitment to making lifetime memories for their guests is a dream come true. They hope you will join them to create vacation memories for you and your own family! We look forward to seeing you here.
Mike and Rhonda care our community and decided to team up with Jump Start Recovery to help those forced into homeless receive meaningful help and a new start to get back up and running on their own.
