Great spot for an overnight. Very friendly owner. Well taken care of grounds. Lots of open spaces and many shaded with large walnut trees. Good gravel interior roads. Most sites are grass. Very little road noise. We will camp here again. Lots of places to eat dinner and breakfast in area.

Date of Stay:

Rough entrance and exit near office. You will bottom out if you don't take it sideways. This campground is a big parking lot with scattered trees. Very little shade. Camp on the right side as the views of the St. Louis arch are spectacular. Sites are not level. And on left side they are very tight and short. The location is why you are at this campground. You can walk or bike over bridge to the arch and other site seeing or take you vehicle. The campground is secure, but don't be walking around outside of the park or around East St Louis. We have camped here many times and will do so again.

Very friendly staff. Very little road noise. Good dirt and gravel interior roads site was level. Campground is kept very clean and well manicured. Downside is the long freight trains that are parallel to campground. Pretty loud, but they are going slow so not so bad, with windows closed. The tiny town of Paxico has 3 amazing antique stores one of which is staggering and filled with a lot of great stuff. Definitely worth a visit.

Easy access from highway. Some road noise. No trees, all gravel and dirt interior roads. Dusty and dreary. Good for overnight, but cost of $36 seemed high. I do not smoke, but owner reiterated 7 times that this was a smoke free campground. On the plus side the Colonial Steakhouse, right at entrance, had superb fried chicken and buffet with good food and a good breakfast.

Yes, road noise and poor, dirt, interior roads. Most sites did not look level. Very tight spaces. This campground said it had big rig access. They do not. It is way too tight. Stagnant pond on grounds. We drove in and drove right back out.

Date of Stay:

Asphalt interior roads and gravel sites. Patios with most sites and some have wrought iron furniture. Friendly staff. Nice clubhouse if you have a group for get togethers or barbeques. They have a full kitchen for use, as well. We come here often and this year it is better then ever. They are serious about being dog friendly. Very nice, very large dog area with places for one to sit while dogs play, also great hiking/dog walk (gravel) around entire campground. Try to get a site on the outside edge - as the sunsets are spectacular. Views of mountains, as well. No trees equals great satellite.

This campground is right on the border of NM and CO. It is at an elevation of 7800 ft. The exit (#460) shares with the weigh station heading south. GPS says to go another 8 miles so be watchful. Good gravel interior roads and sites. No grass at all, basically a big parking lot. The views are spectacular. Opt for the back in sites if you are staying longer than an overnight. Staff was friendly. Positioned well between Trinadad and Raton. Did I mention the spectacular views? We will camp here again.

Super roads in this state park all asphalt. Sites are large with concrete pads. Patios are crushed gravel dirt and bordered with concrete. Large picnic table. Fireplace with grill. Many sites with well developed trees for shade and many without for satellite, but you reserve through Reserve America and they don't have info on which are good for your desires. Rate is great till you remember that you need a $9/day pass for the park. Very large, clean, well maintained park with great biking, boating and walking jogging. Very close to Denver, with lite rail option. Excellent big rig access, but be careful at entrance gate.

Date of Stay:

Very good interior roads; dirt, gravel mix. Pads are concrete with metal umbrella shade/wind protector over picnic table, fireplace with grill. Great satellite equals very few trees. Entrance to park is 1.5 miles off I-25, but CG sits very close to highway as you enter you loop back towards. We saw many people fishing. Good walking trails. Twelve miles to Boulder, 20 miles plus to Denver. Excellent big rig access.

Date of Stay:

Great overnight spot. Interior roads and sites are very fine crushed stone. Good satellite capability. Pull throughs are very long. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Utilities grouped well for motorhomes and trailers. Best part is that it is a mile off the highway, so very little road noise. Take a drive to Lake Ogallala, lots of antiques stores and a stupendous donut shop called donuts in paradise or something like that.

Date of Stay:

Entrance to park is very tight. If there is anyone on their way out of the CG, wait for them to clear the light then make the turn. Some asphalt interior but mostly gravel and dirt. Sites are close together. Near two highways. Very loud. Staff was friendly and eager to please. Proximity to Lincoln is very good. They have a pool and were having bison burgers for $7.50 that night and pancakes for breakfast. Good place if you have kids. We would try another CG as an overnight.

Date of Stay:

Asphalt interior roads. Concrete pads. Utilities all together on drivers side rear. Very clean and organized park with lots of grass, ponds with fountains and little connector bridges. Pond may be stocked as we saw people fishing in them. Corn fields all around, wide open space. Satellite and AT&T very good signals. Nice community room in center. They have monthly rates at $425 including utilities - wow! We were here 2 nights, but could stay longer. Des Moines is up and coming with many fun shops and restaurants in the "East End". Check about construction in area before you come, as your navigation won't take you the right way

Date of Stay:

Broken pavement interior roads. This is a mobile home park with many transient renters. They have about 5 open sites that can accept RVs. To access these sites one must go up on a 6" curb and over a sidewalk to a concrete pad. Electricity was very good. Many trees for shaded sites. Many local TV channels. Great location for using train into Chicago, just 4 miles by car with free parking then 41 miles by train at $7.25. Front desk person was very accommodating and had someone help us to our site. I don't think there were any bathrooms. but they did have laundry facilities and a store

This is an awesome CG, just our kind of place. Easy parking for our 45 ft MH. All sites have full hook ups and 30 and 50 amp poles. At $21 per night hard to complain. They don't take reservations. We came on a Monday before 2 pm and there were many available sites, 1/2 full by evening. On Tuesday the CG was 3/4 full. All are back ins. Water connection is far and you may need 2 hoses. Many hiking trails and a lake (about a 3/4 mile walk or a 5 min drive) with many activities including boat rental and swimming. If you like frisbee golf there is a very challenging course. We would come here again.

We have stayed here before but with a 40 ft RV. This time we called to see if try could accommodate a 45 ft. They said they only had a few sites for that size and that they were all reserved but that several of their 40 foot sites would work. They were nice and eager to help. Unfortunately when we arrived they had not saved a 50 amp site per our request. This CG only has limited 50 amp sites. We stayed for 2 nights on 30 amp. During the heat of the summer and with an all electric coach this does not work out well. The CG was full with lots of seasonals and sites were very messy and cluttered. We won't stay here again with this size motorhome.
