About Anthony Sherman

I'm full time, and just started RVing in September of 2014. I travel alone in a 19' Airstream that serves me perfectly. My general routine is three days dry camping and then a week at an RV park. I hike everywhere I go. That's my deal, plus coffee shops - good coffee shops. Best hiking so far - the Superstition Mountains (by far). Best coffee shops - EXO in Tuscon, and Macy's in Flagstaff.

Manzano's RV Park, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park was a real find for me, and I am happy to recommend it. First each site is set into its own natural setting, which offers a sense of privacy and a feel for the local fauna. Everything in the park is meticulously maintained with obvious attention to detail.

It was extremely cold in Silver City while I was there, and there were two exceptional aspects to this park that made my stay enjoyable: first - the city water faucet was set in a recessed insulated box. I had had frozen water taps at Hueco Tanks and Las Cruces, but not here. Secondly, the Wifi is really excellent. My site was next to the router, so I can't speak for the whole park, but I had the strongest WiFi I have EVER had in an RV park. I have a signal monitor, and my readings were as high as I often get at Starbucks.

Because the WiFi was so good, and I had a project that required the internet, I stayed an extra week, in spite of the cold (down to 10 degrees one night.) My rate was $150 a week, which they calculated as $30 a day - with two free days. We camped at Manzano's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

I'm a coffee guy, and Silver City has three places I can recommend: Javalina's, which has a nice community feel to it, Jumping Cactus, which hand drips each individual cup and great pastries, and the Yanqui Cafe, which has a nice homey feel to it. Silver City is an interesting really laid back place - seems like its populated with (what are now adult) hippies.

Coconino National Forest, Pinegrove Campground , Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

All the USFS campgrounds I've encountered are uniformly clean (bathroom, etc.) and well maintained. This was still a notch above, the host was especially friendly and helpful.

Recently I reviewed my stay at the Kiabab USFS campground in Williams, AZ- and there I complained about the generator noise. Not so here. Campers had much quieter generators and ran them only to recharge. (There were only two Class A's in the park.)

The access road is well paved, and if off Lake Mary road - which is a wonderfully scenic drive on a wide well maintained road.

BBQ stand as well as fire ring. We camped at Coconino National Forest, Pinegrove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Kaibab Nat'l Forest Kaibab Lake Group Area, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This "Dry Camping" - so no utilities. Very nice picnic tables and fire rings. I rated the CG a ten on the merits of the questions, but be warned - there is plenty of noise from people running generators, which is frustrating, because I wouldn't take the gift of one.

I have a 19' Airstream - other campers were mostly Class A's and larger 5th wheels. the larger the "rigs" the more generator noise you'll encounter. We camped at Kaibab Nat'l Forest Kaibab Lake Group Area in a Travel Trailer.

Literally minutes from the center of Williams. All good roads. Nicely wooded and some sites have lake views.

Arizona High Country Campground, Clay Springs, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

I seldom write reviews - if ever. But Mike and Susan were especially nice, the campground is very clean and private - and they have the best WiFI I have ever encountered. I would stay here again and I recommend it. We camped at Arizona High Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.
