Las Colinas RV Park (55+ park), Eloy, Arizona

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

My wife and I spent a week there in early October. Having spent most of my professional working career commuting to Phoenix every week, one would have thought that I would have been more aware of the "snowbird phenomena", but we arrived un-announced and with no reservation. When we realized that all the Mesa parks closed their office at 4pm, and that overnight at Walmart was a no-no, I thought we were in a world of hurt.

After getting nothing but after hours recordings everywhere else, I tried Los Colinas, and got a real person who said they had a spot. He was just getting ready to close the gate as we pulled up, and got us checked in and guided to our site.

This is a 55+ park for full timers, but they did not ask if we had any kids. I didn't see any kids during our stay, so I can't say what would have happened if we had had our grandchildren with us. I read a previous review that indicated that the sites were narrow and turns were tight. That they were, but overall they were narrow because of the concrete patios. There actually was plenty of room between sites. I found the sites to be extremely well groomed and level.

As far as service, the manager and office staff were great. They seemed genuinely glad to have us there. If there was a downside, I would say for transient campers, particularly during winter season, there is a very limited number of spaces, so if you are planning to stay here, make sure you call ahead and make reservations. We camped at Las Colinas RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

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

We stayed there two nights over the span of a week while trading motor homes. We were in different sites on each stay, but each was clean, and unobstructed.

Hookups were convenient, and although Van Horn is in the middle of the west Texas desert, there was a nice, grassy area outside our door.

The people were very friendly, and they had a on site restaurant with surprisingly good breakfast menu. Their office hours were the latest I have seen at a campground.

We didn't see or look for any amenities, as we were just traveling through, but it was a good, convenient place to spend the night. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.

Cowtown RV Park, Aledo, Texas

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

We spent one night there, meeting friends after we had taken delivery of our new motor home. When contacting Cowtown, the people on the phone were very nice, and worked to accommodate a short notice schedule change necessitated by a medical issue.

When we did arrive, the entrance was nice and had concrete roads. In the BEST terms I can come up with, the roads towards the back are horrible. Numerous potholes, muddy tracks (it had rained earlier that morning and all these potholes were filled with mud and water). When we were directed to our site, it was essentially a mud pit. It really wasn't something I wanted to be in with a new RV. Also, there was a tree on the curb side that was so close, I couldn't put the slide out. That necessitated backing up through the mud and repositioning the coach as far to the left as we could. Even with that, we couldn't put out the awning.

I was finally able to get the entry door into an area that did have some caliche and a little bit of grass so that we didn't track in mud every time we came inside.

The arrangement on our site made reaching both electric and sewer difficult. If we pulled forward far enough to get to the electric, the sewer connection was out of reach behind the coach. IMHO, not a well thought out arrangement at all. Wifi was acceptable but slow.

Leaving the following day was another adventure in driving through muddy potholes. The exit drive was so muddy that in trying to avoid the potholes, I had to make a turn that had a large tree on the inside of the turn, and received a long limb scrape along the side of the coach.

In general, I was really disappointed with Cowtown RV. We camped at Cowtown RV Park in a Motorhome.
