Cactus RV Park, Tucumcari, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

First Impression: Web site says "no frills" and they mean it. Office building looks trashy but inside was clean. Safety: No night lighting but no concerns. Access: We took exit 333 off I-40, north to Tucumcari Blvd, turn left. CG is across from Tractor Supply. Municipal road in good condition, good signage but a tree is in the way, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Used for sign-in only. No store. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. Good Sam discount. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. No laundry room, restrooms or showers. No propane sales, playground, or off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Lightly wooded. Interior roads are wide dirt/gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Prevosts shouldn't have problems. No tent area, yurts, or cabins. Sites are all generous, level, dirt/gravel, all pull-through, minimal desert landscaping. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. High water pressure BUT TASTES ACRID - drinking not recommended. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, at ground level. No patios; no picnic tables. Fires not permitted; no fire rings. Fair satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but poor coverage away from the office building. Verizon phone at 4 bars; 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Distant railroad, no aircraft or interstate noise but local traffic is notable. Bug Report (mid October): biting, black mosquitoes - a serious problem. Runners: CG roads marginal for running. Yoga: mat would have to go on the dirt/gravel. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable. Okay for a night or two. We camped at Cactus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sadly, Tucumcari, NM, is a dying, tired, little town. Boarded businesses, abandoned local hotels. Fast food next to interstate exits: Pizza Hut, Sonic, McDonalds. Now it's a stop along the interstate, multiple exits with gas/diesel, fast food, and a convenience store or two. Residential roads are tattered and rutted with a lot of derelict houses.

Route 66 RV Park, Edgewood, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

First Impression: CG is one, big, downhill. Sites are either on level steppes or they're tilted. East side showing expansion work. Safety: No concerns. Access: I-40, Exit 187, head south to traffic light at Route 66, turn left, about ¼ mile to CG. Municipal road in good condition, fair signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Looks like a derelict building. Didn't have to go in - owner came to me. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. No price discounts. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Small, clean laundry area next to restrooms. Two, gender-neutral restrooms with PAY showers ($4 for 12 minutes - quarters only and no change machine), modern, clean, no mold, hot water with good pressure (score "A"). No propane sales. No playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Few trees. Interior roads are wide dirt/gravel in fair condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Prevosts shouldn't have problems. No tent area, yurts, or cabins. Sites are all nearby, sufficiently level but not necessarily flat, dirt/gravel, pull-through and back-in, desert landscaping under development by new owners. Utility locations are all over the place. Electric (20/30/50) and water in middle with sewer way-out-back; metered for long term. Adequate water pressure but with a strange (unknown) taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, at ground level. No patios, no picnic tables. Fires not permitted; no fire rings. Good satellite views. No cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 4 bars; 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or local traffic, but CG is adjacent to the interstate. Bug Report (mid October): small black ants. Runners: CG roads poor for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable, IMO overpriced. We camped at Route 66 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Spruce RV Park, Grants, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Our visit was a 1-nighter, in-and-out. First Impression: Ho-hum {yawn}. A gravel spot-beside-the-road with crowded pedestals. Safety: Not near a residential area. No night lighting. We took extra security precautions. Access: East I-40, exit 81 (A or B), head south on Ice Caves Road, turn right immediately after the east-bound off-ramp onto Zuni Canyon Road. Ice Caves and Zuni Canyon roads in good condition, but CG sign just off the interstate hard to see, hidden by untrimmed trees. Garmin GPS does not have this CG in its database. Office: Nice reception, token store with just a few snacks and even fewer RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. No web site. Good Sam price discount. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Two washers, two dryers in corner of office. Restrooms/showers not inspected. No propane sales. No playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are very narrow, gravel in good condition with very sharp, narrow turns and over-hanging branches. Big rig and long coach challenging. Prevosts shouldn't even try. Tent area "across the street". No yurts or cabins. Sites are all very close, sufficiently level, gravel, pull-through and back-in, no landscaping. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; some sites are metered. Adequate water pressure with fair taste. No sewer at sites, use dump station. No patios; no picnic tables. Fires not permitted (no room). Marginal satellite views (tall trees). Free cable TV (46 channels). Free Wi-Fi but poor coverage away from office. Verizon phone and 4G at 4 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Distant railroad w/whistles. No aircraft or interstate noise but CG is adjacent to major roadway with loud traffic. Bug Report (mid October): no insects noted. Runners: Entire CG not good for running. Yoga: not at this CG. Conclusion: Score 4-Weak but low price makes it palatable for a short stay. We camped at Blue Spruce RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our visit was a 1-nighter, in-and-out. First Impression: Gravel road off the main road is rutted, pot-holed, gravel. Roadside presentation needs work. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 123 off I-40, turn north about 2 miles, easy to see on left. Municipal road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate.

Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Lightly wooded. Interior roads are narrow dirt/gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles.

Pedestals at middle of site with electric 30 or 50 but not both; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, about 2" above ground level. No patios, aging picnic tables. Fire rings with wood for sale in office. Good satellite views. No cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage but no internet access (huh?).

Hitchin' Post RV Park & Motel, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $34.00

First Impression: Unfortunately, serious road construction on North Las Vegas Blvd makes getting in very difficult. Okay roadside presentation. Safety: Gated CG. Access: I took exit 50 off I-15 then south on Lamb Road turning right on N.

Interior roads are somewhat wide, packed gravel in good condition with 90 degree turns. Speed bumps. No overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coaches won't have problems but Prevosts might. Sites are all nearby, sufficiently level, gravel, pull-through and back-in, no landscaping. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with tolerable taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, 0-2" above ground level. No patios. Most sites get usable picnic tables. Fires not permitted (no room); no fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV (40+ channels). OTA TV found 77 channels. Free Wi-Fi but it never worked ("Can't connect to this network" message). Verizon phone and 4G at 1 bar. Recycle dumpster (everything but glass).

St. George / Hurricane KOA, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

First Impression: Not easy to find. No easy interstate access. Inviting roadside appearance. Safety: No concerns. Access: Off I-15. Exit 16 or exit 23 but in either case, end up on old highway 91 after driving all over the place. Old Hwy 91 in poor condition, good CG signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff. Token store with snacks and a few RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. KOA discount. Facilities: Pool but no spa or fitness room. Large, laundry room. Mini-golf. Large, clean, no mold, restrooms/showers, good privacy, but hot water suddenly went to holycrapthat'scold in an instant, then back to hot (score "A"). Propane sales. Nice, large playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Lightly wooded. Interior roads are wide asphalt in good condition but with right-angle turns needing caution. Some sites have too-low, hanging branches (rubbed my roof). Big rig and long coach challenging. Prevosts could have maneuvering problems. No tent area or yurts but cabins are available. Sites in rows 1 and 2 are all very close (almost slide-to-slide) while rows 3 and back are wide. Alternate parking, not very level, gravel, pull-through and back-in, rough grass between. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with okay taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, angled at ground level making 90 degree (use a do-nut), screw-in sewer connections impossible. No patios, "ok" picnic tables. Ground fires not permitted; no fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV (20 channels). Free Wi-Fi with multiple antennas but no internet connection (useless). Verizon phone and 4G at 1-2 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or local traffic noise, some interstate noise. Bug Report (late September): black ants. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable but like all KOAs, a bit pricey. We camped at St. George / Hurricane KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with "3-bar" coverage and usable bandwidth (very few campers during our stay). Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or local traffic but interstate is quite noticeable. Bug Report (late September): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads poor for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable but slightly overpriced. We camped at Angel Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Winnemucca I-80 KOA, Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

First Impression: Nice roadside presentation. Safety: No concerns. Access: From I-80, take exit 180 onto East Winnemucca Blvd; from US-95, turn left onto Winnemucca Blvd then right onto East Winnemucca (just before the I-80 on-ramp). Municipal road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice staff, excellent store with snacks, food items, soft drinks, beer, serve-yourself hot dogs, and a selection of RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. KOA price discount, only. Facilities: Heated pool. No spa, fitness room, or rec center. Laundry room. Clean restrooms/showers, no mold, average fixtures, hot water with good pressure (score "A"). Propane sales. Small playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Decorative trees; lightly wooded. Interior roads are sufficiently wide, packed gravel in good condition with kinda' tight turns; no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coaches need to be mindful of where your tires are as sites are narrow, timber lined with protruding rebar. Prevosts could have problems. Tent area but no yurts or cabins. Sites are all close, sufficiently level (#123 was seriously tilted - front jacks bottomed-out), sand and gravel, pull-through (short back-ins around perimeter), stone between. Pedestal locations vary from mid-rig to rear of site, electric 20/30/50; no meters. Moderate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, at ground level. No patios; nice (plastic) picnic tables. No room for ground fires; no fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but poor coverage, pages would not load. Verizon phone and 4G at 4 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Distant railroad, no aircraft or local traffic noise but interstate traffic is audible. Bug Report (mid September): flies, flies, and more flies. Runners: gravel roads marginal for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable, good price. We camped at Winnemucca I-80 KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The town was named for the 19th-century Chief Winnemucca of the local Northern Paiute tribe. Winnemucca, loosely translated, means "one moccasin." (Wikipedia). Small town, population under 5,000. No major restaurant chains, a few fast food restaurants, numerous local eateries. Walmart, Autozone, O'Reillys. Couple of small casinos. Best diesel at Maverick ($2.859) on East Winnemucca Blvd. Landromat. Small, two screen movie theater. No Starbucks (a unit of measure for the wife).

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Our visit was a 1-nighter, in-and-out. First Impression: Neat and tidy - nice roadside presentation. Safety: No concerns. Access: North out of Bend on Broadway (US-20) which becomes Seneca Drive. Turn right just "around the curve". Municipal road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, token store with snacks, wine, beer, coffee, but no RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. Good Sam and military discounts. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Laundry room. Wife reports restrooms/showers as "usable". Propane sales. No playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are crushed gravel (lava rock) in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Prevosts shouldn't have problems. No tent area, yurts, or cabins. Sites are all very spacious, sufficiently level, crushed rock, mostly pull-through, nice grass landscaping. Utilities at mid-site with 20/30/50 electric; no meters. Low water pressure with acceptable taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 6" above ground level. Small concrete patios with good picnic tables. Open fires not permitted; no fire rings. Marginal satellite views (tall trees). Free cable TV (24 channels). Free Wi-Fi with poor coverage (1 bar away from office; pages won't load). Verizon phone at 5 bars; 4G at 4 bars. Recycle aluminum cans, only. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or interstate noise but local traffic on Seneca Drive is noticeable. Bug Report (mid September): no insects noted. Runners: Gravel CG roads not recommended for running. Yoga: patios are plenty big enough for your mat but you'll have to move the picnic table. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice. Just a smidge too expensive for no "extras". We camped at Burns RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
