Prospectors RV Resort

An RV park that fell behind on its electric bill failed to raise the money they needed to keep the lights on, according to KOAA.

The owners of Prospectors RV Resort in Fremont County, Colo., notified dozens of campers last month that they had to leave by New Year’s Day.

Some who leased spaces just a few weeks before the news of the debt broke say they feel like the owners treated them unfairly.

Joy Garnhart said she paid approximately $2,000 for a three month lease back in October. When the power went out, so did the water pumps that supplied the camp sites.

“We didn’t have water or heat, and I’m disabled and retired,” she said.

Sarah Meraz also signed a lease with the resort in late October. She was staying in town temporarily for a construction job in Cañon City and said she has spoken with several other campers who’ve been put out by the closure.
