Casini Ranch Family Campground, Duncans Mills, California

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $71.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 22 days in this lovely family campground while visiting our grand kids. Spaces are wide and well arranged. So much for kids to do - our grand kids loved staying with us. Bounce pillow, playground, ice cream social, pedal carts, hay rides are all available on the weekends. The campground sits in a big bend of the Russian River, so there is considerable river frontage, mostly devoted to some amazingly private tent camping sites. Sites with sewer are in rows, a short walk from the river. All pull-thrus. Some back in sites with water/electric that are really nice and private too. Laundry is nice, showers and bathrooms are well arranged, with toilet and shower in a stall and shred sink area. Recently updated. Camp store is very well stocked. Checking was fine- the staff is great. They identified a mistake on my charge and worked on it till they got it fixed. The campground is pretty full on weekends, so reservations are important, emptier during the week. Day campers are allowed to use the facilities (for a $7 fee) but even with that the campgrounds did not feel overcrowded. The entry points are closely policed, and friends visiting you for dinner will have to check in and pay an entry fee. We saw people in the entry house watching the gate until late at night. Makes you feel much easier about letting the kids ride their scooters and bikes around the park. The setting is fairly open in the center with grass between sites, but the perimeter sites are wooded and private. Much to do in the area! One tip- our GPS took us in from the east -Guerneville by having us leave the River Road (116) at Monte Rio and cross the river, then go 1.4 miles along Moscow Road, which was extremely narrow. Our trailer is small but it was still harrowing. A better option is to stay on the River Road all the way to Duncan Mills, where Moscow Road intersects the River Road to cross the river. Moscow is wider there, and the trip down it is shorter- way better! We camped at Casini Ranch Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Desert Rose RV Park, Fernley, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This park has some seriously good infrastructure. Concrete pads, grass and trees between our pull thru site and others. Interior roads are hard packed gravel mixed w cement- no dust. Spaces are close but well angled to give a bit more privacy. No picnic table or space for a patio rug- it wouldn't be conducive to sitting outside much. Friendly and perceptive help getting to our space and positioning the trailer. Nice bathrooms- single rooms with toilet, shower and sink. Really good looking laundry room with quite a few washers and dryers, a laundry sink and a folding table. Only complaint- there is a bit of road noise from Hwy 50. Not noticeable during the day, but at 4:30 am it was enough to keep me awake for a while. This was just an overnight stop for us, and I would gladly stay here again. Other favorable reviews below very consistent with my own experience. We camped at Desert Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wendover KOA, West Wendover, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA is clean and well run. It is near the Bonneville Salt Flats, and probably a destination site during land speed events. For us it was an overnight stop. If you are near the Salt Flats you cannot expect lush landscaping but they do have trees near most sites. Flat white gravel sites and roads. Pleasant and efficient staff. Good camp store. Bathrooms are large, spotless and modern dormitory style, with a row of sinks and toilets. Showers are single rooms along a public hallway. Make sure you bring everything you need into it or you will be tip toeing across the hall in your towel! Laundry room looked okay but two dryers not working. We would stay again if in the area.

Moab KOA, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $71.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice place to stay. The beautiful swimming pool was 'resort worthy.' Our space was quite narrow but long. The next row over, Lane 4, sites 67-72, had an unobstructed view of the red sandstone formations. Their sites and our sites (Lane 3) were arranged so that the afternoon sun is not on the doorway side of the trailer, making it easier to enjoy being outside in the afternoon. Outdoor space quite narrow- luckily we were traveling with friends and able to combine their space and ours to get a decent sized cooking, eating and socializing area. Verizon had 3 bars. Camp WiFi was not too useful, and went down for reals after construction cut a line. Roads are red dust and gravel, site mostly gravel. Hey- it's the same red stuff you came here to see, just up close. Only real complaint besides narrow sites was the number of dead or dying trees in the campground. It's hard to keep trees alive in the desert, but they should be kept pruned and removed when they finally bite the dust. Arches National Park was a pretty nice experience- must come back to see more. Camp store seemed pretty nice. I would definitely be happy to stay here again. We camped at Moab KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Manor RV Park, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We were pleased with this park. It is well located for both visits to Estes Park and trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. Spaces are a bit tight, but there is a nice river. We saw elk right in the park as others have noted. Try to get right on the river even if you pay a premium- you may have a lovely private area at the back of your trailer if it is not too long. This park looks like it is the best rv park in Estes Park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Manor RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Base Camp Family Campground, Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a new park that has just been carved out of the sandy floor of the San Luis Valley. Landscaping is a work in process. Pros: spacious pull-thru sites, new, well designed private shower/ restroom spaces, very friendly and motivated staff, good location to Alamosa and Great Sand Dunes National Monument. Cons: weeds and sand everywhere due to the recently disturbed soil, no shade and plenty of wind. Also, the park is open to Base Camp Road, which left us feeling a little less secure than usual. We were careful to keep our stuff locked up. My initial impression was that this was a bleak place, but the setting does grow on you- there is a truly panoramic view of the immense San Luis Valley, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the San Juan Mountains. We watched monsoon storms build up from every corner of the horizon. Important note: the campsite is listed as 7001 Base Camp Road but Apple Maps and our car navigation could not find it. All Stays directed us thru GPS coordinates to 16845 E Hwy 160, which works. We camped at Base Camp Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park, Ojo Caliente, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was a return visit for us- a two night stay as we travelled north. The spa is even more enjoyable than I recalled. The restaurant is excellent and reasonably priced at breakfast and lunch, a bit pricey at dinner. Check out the spa website and book a massage or other treatment. Entry to the spa is $20 a day but well worth it. We had sites 15, 16 and 17. Shady pull thru's. Try to avoid sites 1 thru 7- very sunny and they face onto a bleak hillside, rather than towards the stream. The park is fixing some new sites up with vintage trailers in them. All sites are water and electric only. There is a dump station. No laundry. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Besides the spa, there are a number of hikes in the area. This stop makes a wonderful and unusual addition to a tour of Northern New Mexico, and is an easy drive from Taos, Carson National Forest, or Santa Fe.

There is a small market nearby but you probably are better off stopping in Española to get groceries if you're coming from the south.

Bayfield Riverside RV Park, Bayfield, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautifully maintained park. Spaces are tight, but we were right on a lovely stream. Across the stream was a large park like grassy field. WiFi was acceptable. Verizon had two bars. Check in was smooth and we were guided to our spot and had help backing in. Catch and release fishing with barbless hooks is allowed. We had a lovely stay and hope to be back. You are about 16 miles from Durango and 50 miles from Pagosa Springs. There is a WalMart that is reasonably close, but otherwise probably good to stock up on groceries before you get there. Only complaint was tight spots in our area. We camped at Bayfield Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Taos Monte Bello RV Park, El Prado, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This small park northwest of Taos is well maintained, with friendly staff and attention to detail. It's on a mesa in the high desert so don't expect trees. However there are many drought tolerant plantings between sites, and as a gardener I was impressed with how thoughtfully chosen and well cared for they were. Wind, alas, is inevitable in New Mexico in the spring so the park was windy during the day, but not dusty. Small but pleasant laundry. Lending library of books and magazines. Small but well stocked little store. Large spaces between sites. A large and well built covered group area with several grills and nice tables. Some private covered eating areas with their own tables, and walls. Maybe they can be rented? They were numbered. A nice walking trail into the desert. There is much to do in Taos, and lots of nice restaurants. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

I've stayed in a lot of so called RV resorts - this one truly deserves the name. It's very high end with many amenities. Check in very easy, a mistaken charge was promptly fixed when we noticed it and asked. Sites are close, but ample and citrus trees between most sites provide a bit of privacy. Barbecue restaurant on site had some of the best brisket I've ever eaten. A very impressive amount of infrastructure and high level staffing makes this a top end place. If I were to offer a small caveat, it would be this: the place is huge, with many many top of the line rvs. It is not 'camping' - it is more like staying in a large impersonal resort. People really keep to themselves. Hardly anyone seemed to grill outside, for example, in contrast to many other campgrounds. This isn't necessarily a criticism. That's what a lot of people like. There are quite a few group activities like yoga, senior fitness, and fitness walks, as well as a poker nite. I didn't try them out so can't say. Other favorable reviews of this place are accurate and I won't repeat what they have to say. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was an overnite stop. Easy check in, friendly staff. The park is plain, dusty and bare. Restrooms spartan but clean. Site 23 has an inconvenient telephone pole that would have impeded an awning.

Deming isn't a hot spot. However, in years past I know the courthouse was a historic old building - if it's still the same and you are stuck in Deming it's worth a visit. And there used to be a museum that was quite interesting. It might still be there too.

Roadrunner RV Resort, Red River, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This place is a gem! Lots of grassy park-like space, Red River runs right thru the middle of the park, wood is delivered to your campsite for $10 (if you have a campsite where fire is allowed.). The check-in process was a breeze, staff is very friendly. Spaces are tight. Best spots are right along the river. You can walk from to park to the Main Street in town, but a shuttle also runs that will pick up up and drop you anywhere. Red River is working hard to change itself from a ski town to a four season vacation area and they are doing a good job of it. We discovered a Bluegrass Festival with some regional and even national high quality talent. Road Runner even persuaded some of the players to come and jam at the RV park one nite - was a wonderful gift to the RV'ers. There is town-wide wifi. I didn't use it so not sure how well it worked. Verizon good in the park, iffy during the drive. The laundry was impressive - ten washers and dryers, commercial washer, and big folding tables. The restrooms are five or six separate rooms with shower, loo and sink. Plenty of space at the sink for your stuff. They are rustic, not fancy, but very serviceable. Red River is a lovely little mountain town and well worth a stay if you are traveling in the Enchanted Circle region of NM. Lots of music in the pubs even if no special event going on and Michael Martin Murphy, who lives in the area, makes regular appearances. Next week is a Folk Festival with James McMurty, a national c&w singer as the headline act! Check out the towns website to see what is available - they work hard to have something fun every weekend. Eat dinner at Capo's. This family owned restaurant is beloved in Albuquerque and we were happy to find one in Red River. Good food and good service. We camped at Roadrunner RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park, Ojo Caliente, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed this little park. How many RV parks are next to a hot springs spa with a four star restaurant, yoga classes and massages? You are supposed to pay extra to enter the pools if you are in RV park- I think it is about $20 a day. The park is alongside a small 'river' (in NM that's what we call intermittent seasonal streams) and in the bosque so there is a lot of shrubbery and trees between sites and many feel very secluded and private. Bath house is coed, with two toilet rooms and two shower rooms -sink area is shared. I felt comfortable and safe using it. Some nice hikes available including to an old Indian ruin nearby. Fellow campers ranged from some nice Airstreams to a family of four who expertly erected a large dome tent. It's true, as one reviewer commented, that there's 'no reason to stay here unless you want to go to the mineral springs' but to my mind that's mainly because Ojo Caliente itself is more or less in the middle of nowhere even by NM standards. The spa was well run and very busy with blissed-out boomers wandering everywhere in their bathrobes. Not a very kid-friendly place - children only allowed in one pool and there is a 'whisper rule' - all conversation in public spaces to be in low tones. The restaurant really was good for breakfast and lunch - didn't eat dinner there. Daytime prices very reasonable. We will definitely be back to this little park.

Go back to Española and head east to the Santuario at Chimayo and then take the high road to Taos. Or take the river road to Taos and along the Rio Grande Gorge. Go to Angel Fire. Stop in Santa Fe on the way up or back.

Eat at El Paragua in Española.

Little Creek RV Village, Alto, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park has many favorable reviews which are accurate. It really is a nice park for big rigs and high end travel trailer. However it caters heavily to long term seasonal users, which means the weekend traveler may end up in a crummy spot. We were on a bare gravel site with no shade. A Wal-Mart parking lot might have been better. Also, camping in a teardrop trailer means we really depend on the campground bathrooms. No showers was a big disappointment. The bathrooms are just two private toilet and sink rooms, if they are both occupied you will wait. Hosts nice, campground well maintained, other guests (mostly well to do Texans) nice, friendly, and quiet. Ruidoso is a great little town that has good golf, horse racing, nice restaurants, casino, shopping. Well worth a visit. We camped at Little Creek RV Village in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

We camped in a very small teardrop trailer. Camp staff very helpful about accommodating our group, putting me where I wanted to be, and letting us rearrange our dates. No help back-in. Many long-term snowbirds or permanent residents, most spaces reasonably well-kept. Did not feel unsafe or worried about my stuff, though I was aware people around me likely struggling financially. Bathrooms basic but clean and adequate in layout. Has a rec room. Grounds clean. Plenty of cholla (type of cactus) in the area outside the campground- watch your doggies. Gates locked after 9 pm, get a card if you're going to be out late. Many birds on the east side of the park where residents collaborate to feed them. Saw quite a few different species within a space of five mins. Wal-Mart with a good grocery just a few mins north on Houghton but otherwise you are a long way from town. Uber does serve the area however. We camped at Adventure Bound Camping Resort-Tucson (formerly Cactus Country RV Reso in a Travel Trailer.
