Date of Stay: October, 2008
Arrived after dark for an overnight stay. Narrow, gravel roads and gravel pads that need some maintenance, but I was able to maneuver my 40' motorhome and toad without any trouble. No trees to speak of except on the borders of the campground, so I was able to get my satellite internet up and running quickly. Very quiet. Owner was very friendly. Definitely not a resort, but great for an overnight stop. Would stay here again.

I stayed in space L7 on the "Premium Hill". These are extremely long pull-through sites, but are not quite wide enough to conveniently accommodate my slide-outs and the nice picnic table provided by the Resort. All of the surfaces in the Resort are gravel, and the sites seem to be quite level. The hookups were all excellent. There is a nice swimming pool and hot tub, and the Resort looks to be very well maintained. There is some road noise from Highway 160. The spaces on "Premium Hill" all face north, which helps with the heat during the day. Mesa Verde National Park is to the southwest of the Resort, and is just visible over the tops of some trees from my site. The rate I posted includes a 10% discount. They give discounts for Good Sam, FMCA, AARP, and AAA. I would camp here again.

Very large pull-throughs. Excellent satellite visibility. Concrete pads. Paved roads. Stayed here one night. Would stay here again.
Date of Stay: April, 2008
Owners were very friendly, and helped us with things to see and local restaurants. Concrete pads. Concrete interior roads. RV pads are very narrow. Interior roads are also very narrow, with very tight turns. Pads are spaced very close together. We were assigned space #18. Pad length barely accommodated our 40 ft. motorhome and Tahoe. Larger big rigs would not fit if you include a toad, and I can't imagine trying to turn a 45 ft. motorhome on these interior roads. Water pressure was 45 psi. 50 amp electrical hookup was satisfactory, 115 V on each leg. Free breakfast on Saturday. No shade trees. Wireless internet provided by RV Park was not usable at our pad due to low signal strength. Oleanders provide some screening. Brisk wind from the Gulf of Mexico. Some road noise. Large group camping in tents on the field next to the RV Park, all of whom were on motorcycles and motorscooters. Overall impression: crowded.

We parked here overnight in a 50 amp pull-through space. It was one of the few that were paved with concrete. You have to drive a few miles on old Route 66 highway to get here off I-44, but it was a scenic drive and far enough away from the interstate to get some peace and quiet. Nothing much else around for diversion or recreation. Several long term campers here. Grounds were mowed and clean.

I stayed overnight in a 50Amp pull-through site. Plenty of room (length and width, my total rig is about 65 ft. long, including towd) - about 3 times what you normally see in campgrounds - a really large site. Sites are spread out, with lots of room to maneuver. Gravel sites, gravel roads, a bit of grass here and there, mesquite trees. 70 psi water pressure. Good, clear views to satellites in the south. Hot as hot can be at this time of year. I would stay overnight here again.
Date of Stay: March, 2007
Interior streets and pads are a little "tight". Trees interfered with my satellite dish. My gravel pad (#91, a pull-through) was muddy due to a leaking water faucet. Did not hook up to water or sewer because I had to position my coach too far away in order to avoid the mud. Was told at desk that water pressure is 160 lbs., so you have to use a reducer. The park is very convenient to downtown San Antonio.
Date of Stay: March, 2007
We chose this park because it was so convenient to downtown Dallas. Space for maneuvering was adequate. The sites are adequate, but not spacious. The view is adequate, but nothing to write home about. The interior roads and pads are gravel. There are no park personnel present. Everything is handled by envelope, similar to some state parks we have stayed in. There is a large shopping mall close by. We were here over the weekend, and there was a lot of traffic in the area. The rate we paid was with the Good Sam Club discount included.
Date of Stay: February, 2007
There are two different campgrounds at this location in the park. One, with over 100 sites, if for tents, trailers, and motor homes, and is run for the Park Service by volunteers. The other campground, with 24 sites, and the one we eventually stayed in, is privately run by a concessionaire. They do not take reservations for the full-hookup, privately run sites. We arrived at the park around 5 pm, went inside the small store located just east of the full-hookup campsite, and were told all the spaces were taken for the night. The attendant took our name and we were number 8 on the list for possible openings the next day. He told us to come back to the store at 11 am the next morning to see if a site was available. We asked him why he did not know already, and he replied that people can choose to stay longer, even if they have only signed up for a certain range of dates, as long as they do not stay for more than 2 weeks. For that first night, he told us to proceed to the park service campsite and we could stay there. That turned out to be quite an adventure, since the park service originally built their campground for tents. The roads are narrow, gravel, with sharp turns, and lots of trees with low branches. I ended up knocking my right rear-view mirror out of alignment on a branch. There were two volunteers managing the park service site. One of them told us that the campground is divided into reservable sites and "open" sites (first come, first served). The sites are also divided into generator allowed and no generator sections. A bit confusing. The manager told us where some open campsites might be (someone else could have already staked a claim on them), but they would just be available for one night because they were in the "reservable" section. We should have unhooked our toad first, but we went ahead in search of an available site with our Jeep in tow. We found one, but had to pull in instead of backing in because of lack of maneuvering room. The site was not very level, and I had to use supports under the jacks. The next morning, it was quite a site watching all of the 40 ft. plus motorhomes and trailers trying to get out of the campground, followed by people roaming around looking for a better site than the one they stayed in the previous night. At the designated hour, we returned to the store and were told a full-hookup site was available, and we moved the coach. The full-hookup campsite is basically a converted asphalt parking lot, with tight maneuvering and tight spaces, but we were able to back in without too much difficulty. Our rear wheels were butted up flush with the curb of the parking lot, and our jacks went down onto the dirt just behind the curb. For those of you who have satellite dishes, the view of the sky from sites on the south side of the "parking lot" may be blocked by tall cottonwood trees. If you have a choice, pick the north side. I think I will try staying in the Study Butte / Terlingua area next time.
