Price reflects the monthly rate, electricity was charged separately. The park was perfect for us, we needed a place to stay for a few weeks while visiting Albuquerque. The park sits up on the hill just west of the freeway. There are great views of the surrounding mountains. There is surprisingly little noise despite proximity to the freeway. There were full hookups, good water pressure and strong wifi. This is a no-frills campground, but we were not in need of resort amenities. There are no laundry or bathroom facilities. This is a small park with 10 spots, most are long term, with a few spots set aside for shorter stays. This is essentially an open gravel lot so pulling in and out with a larger rig is easy. The owners were friendly and attentive. We were pleased with the park and would stay here again. We camped at La Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.
Bosque del Apache is about an hour south, and it's a really neat place for bird watching. The Petroglyph National Monument in Albuqueque is also a fun day trip.

We were delighted to find this little park tucked away in rural Kansas. We were in the area to visit Caldwell, and this was the closest park that we could find. We had the park all to ourselves, and the scenery was beautiful, situated right on the Chikaskia River. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night. There were full hookups including 50amp at many of the sites, and the water pressure was very good. The wifi service was good, although the clerk at the City Hall said that they might be turning off the internet due to a lack of campers in the park. Most of the sites had picnic tables and fire rings. There was a large deck area overlooking the river that had picnic tables and grills, which looked like a fun place to have an outing in the summertime. The river itself was a popular place for anglers, and there was usually a car or two in the parking lot. We did not use the bathrooms/showers, but we did take a look inside. They were filthy. It looked like they had not been cleaned in months. It's too bad, considering that the outside grounds were kept groomed. The only other negative is that the clerk at City Hall was not very welcoming. She acted as if we were bothering her when we came in to get the wifi passcode. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and we would come back if we are in the area again. We camped at Argonia River Park in a Motorhome.
The town of Argonia is pretty much a ghost town, there is nothing really to do there. However, the Argonia Mart gas station, on Hwy 160, has excellent pizzas. They are also open for breakfast and lunch.

We really did not have a good experience here. The only positive comment that we have is that the sites were large with good separation between RVs. The Internet did not work for the majority of our stay. When we approached the staff about this issue, they said that we should purchase our own hotspot and gave us an 800 number to call the Internet provider directly. We were astounded by the poor customer service. The cable was spotty at best. The pool was not heated, and the hot tub was filthy, so we didn't use either. The water pressure was very poor here. While the park grounds were kept free of litter/debris, the surrounding beaches were filled with trash. It was disgusting to even go for a walk. We had hoped to kayak during our stay, but were so turned off by the amount of garbage that we didn't bother. Finally, the park is far removed from town, so not a good jumping off point if you want to visit Galveston. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite RV parks. We were very impressed by the cleanliness and upkeep of the park. All facilities were immaculate. We stayed during the winter, which is a quiet time in the park. Many of the RVs were in the park for storage, and there were only a few people actually staying in the park while we were there. This is perfect for us, since we were looking for a quiet getaway. We enjoyed the jacuzzi on most evenings, and the weather was absolutely perfect during our stay. We had cable TV access, and the Internet was the best that we have encountered at any RV park. The water pressure was good and the sites were very level. The owners were very friendly and informative, and you can tell that they really care about the park. The daily rate reflects monthly price + electricity charge. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Port O'Connor RV Park in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed walking on the beach/pier when the tide was low.
Marty's Landing has outstanding fried chicken.
Breakfast tacos at La Morena were excellent and only $2-3.
Definitely bring your beach cruiser and kayak, this is a great location for both!

This is a lovely little park tucked away on the bay side of the island, about 15 minutes from town. There are not a lot of sites at the park, and mostly long-term return campers during the winter. We were lucky enough to call ahead and reserve a site for 3 weeks. Many of the sites have a view of the bay, and it is quite a scenic location. Sites were level, and water pressure was good. There was no cable. Internet access was almost non-existent, which is really the only complaint that we have. This is otherwise a very nice park, at a great location, for a reasonable value. The owners are very attentive and friendly, and they keep the park in good condition. The campers are very social here, with a nightly campfire circle and weekly potlucks. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Bay Breeze RV On The Bay in a Motorhome.
Beach access is just a mile west of the campground at Bon Secour. There are miles of beautiful beach to explore, as well as many trails through the park.
Fort Morgan was a special treat, and Veterans/Active Duty can visit for free.
There is an extensive bike trail system just a couple of miles east of the park, with the trails running for miles through Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
We enjoyed several movies during bargain Tuesday's at Carmike Cinemas in Orange Beach.

Nightly rate is based on weekly price. The sites are located around the perimeter of a large grassy square. The roads inside the park had many potholes. Most of the sites are back-in, and you drive over the grass to access your site. The sites are adequately spaced for slide-outs, but close together. There is no shade at the sites or in the grassy square. We did enjoy walking around the farm, which was lovely.
The lounge, laundry and kitchen area were clean and well equipped. There was even a small workout room available to guests. The park was very dog-friendly. We saw many travelers with well-behaved dogs; one of our neighbors had 4 dogs!
As with so many of the parks where we have stayed, the wifi was problematic. When we were able to connect the Internet was slow, and continuously dropped.
The noise level was also an issue during our stay, not only from the adjacent highway, but there was also a good amount of traffic on the interior roads at odd hours. There was one evening when fireworks were lit off at the park for 45 minutes at 11pm.
The best part about this park is the proximity to downtown Savannah. We stayed here to tour the city, and we were only 5-10 minutes away from downtown. We spent most of our days just walking the squares, and this park allowed us the convenience of a short drive. I should add that the park is not in the best part of town, but we felt safe inside the park. We would stay here again next time we visit Savannah. We camped at Red Gate Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.
We travelled to Savannah almost every day during our stay, and found that the cheapest parking is at the Civic Center. Only 50 cents per hour.
We found the most delicious panaderia just a couple of miles away, tucked into the back of a convenience store (Jasmine Food Mart). The smell of fresh baked breads overwhelms you as soon as you walk in. We visited this store 4 times during our stay!
