Coronado Village, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a short stay in Albuquerque while visiting family. This Park is mostly a Mobile Home Park, but still has quite a few RV Sites spread throughout the Park. This is the cleanest, most well kept, mobile home park we've ever stayed in. There was a laundry facility very near our spot, and the staff were very polite and helpful. We had a gravel spot, with picnic table and small tree. The entire Park streets are paved, and there is an outdoor pool available for use (we didn't use, as it had not opened for the summer). We camped at Coronado Village in a Motorhome.

This Park is right off I-25, and very close to the Balloon Fiesta Park, and seems to be very full all the time. Getting into and out of the Park was easy, but on a one-way frontage road.

WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This RV Park in Hurricane Utah, is one of the nicest parks we have stayed at in our travels. The streets are paved and each of the spaces have long concrete pads, and most have grassy yards and lots of trees. Only the newest section of the park has rock yards and no/very young trees. There are many full-time residents here, but in very well-maintained spaces, with no overflow of junk around the units. The bathroom and laundry facilities are well maintained, as well as the grounds. They even have some teepees to rent for nights. Verizon worked well for us, but also the park WiFi was surprisingly good while we were there. We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is very close to town, with a grocery store about 1/2 block away, as well as plenty of other stores. It is about 30-40 minutes to Zion National Park, and a couple of very nice State Parks are closer by.

Monument RV Resort, Fruita, Colorado

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

We stayed at Monument for one month, as we have family and friends in the area. The park is very convenient from I-70 in Fruita. The park is medium-sized, all gravel sites. The roads are paved, and there is a smallish dog park. The Park is well maintained, and staff is helpful. This Park has many seasonal or full-time residents, but they keep their sites tidy. There is a small pool (closed for the season) and an outdoor hot tub (open year-round). Monument is very close to the Colorado National Monument, local grocery, and several restaurants. We will stay there again on our next trip. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

RV Ranch at Grand Junction, Clifton, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second stay for one month. This is probably the nicest RV park in the Grand Junction area. They work hard to maintain the common areas and spaces. Some areas have small grass patches, other spaces are gravel only. 2 dog parks, a swimming pool and a nice laundry room. We requested a move to another shadier spot after a few days, and they were very accommodating. There are many full-time residents here, but everyone seems friendly. We will use this Park whenever we visit the Grand Junction Colo area! We camped at RV Ranch at Grand Junction in a Motorhome.

Heise Hot Springs, Ririe, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at the Heise Hot Springs RV Park during August, intending to stay only one week, and decided to stay two more. There are 3 'sections' to this RV Park, we staying in a section of about 40 spaces. Lots of trees, and all the spaces are grass, no gravel pads. Space between sites, and gravel road around the Park. Very quiet, as the park is about 5 miles off the highway, and very close to the Snake River. During the week, there were only around 7 RVs in the Park, but it was completely full for the weekends. Staff helps to guide everyone into their site.

A zipline ride runs overhead of the cliffs behind the park - it was fun watching folks sail by! The Hot Springs Pool fee is not included with your fees, but was only 10 dollars. We camped at Heise Hot Springs in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Hot Springs Pool and Zipline are just about 1/4 mile away from the site. Looks like Snake River boat fishing is very popular here - but we didn't fish ourselves.

Not close to any town or city, so grocery shopping is about 20-30 minutes away in Rexburg or Idaho Falls Idaho.
