Surprising in this day and age to find a city park with free (donation) 50 amp power, water and a dump nearby. Our motorhome front weels were off the ground to get level. This park is beautifully manicured. There is a frisbee golf course, a basketball court, a playground, walking trails and a swimming pool within walking distance. Yes, there is a train nearby, but never heard it once during the night. There is a 3-day limit, but looked like there were some residents who have been there a bit longer. There seems to be an abundance of young people driving through and parking in the RV sites ...who knows what they are doing, they don't stay long. Night time was very peaceful. This place is ideal for the location and price! Easy satellite through the trees. Verizon worked well.

We stayed in a full hook up site. The site was very narrow to accommodate our four slides. We had to walk in the mud to get around the motorhome, and duck under a slide to get to the utilities. The 30 amp power was as bad as we have ever seen as fulltimers. The water pressure was fantastic. Sewer connection worked fine. The sites were far enough apart to give privacy. We find it silly that only in Colorado State parks do you have to pay for the site, and THEN pay for a daily entrance fee to get into the park. If they added the fee on to the site charge that would be one thing and then we could decide if it was worth the money, but to try and disguise this extra fee as something it should not be and then tack it on at the end, is disgusting. I would much prefer those who have a valid Colorado Parks pass get a discount instead of the way they do it now. We will in the future avoid all state parks in Colorado.

Price reflect our America the Beautiful Senior discount. We were very fortunate to have a full hookup site. The site was pretty narrow, but the 30 amp power worked well, the water pressure was good. This was a great location to be able to visit Mesa Verde National Park, and get our onboard washer/dryer chores done. This park was very quiet while we were there, the views of the La Plata mountains were fantastic. We had deer visit our campsite daily and saw huge rabbits that at first sight reminded us of kangaroos! I would have rated this campground higher, but the sites are narrow with many tree obstructions and most are not level. We use Verizon and had a good phone signal.

Price reflects extra price for 50 amp power. Just a gravel lot, nothing to write home about, next to the freeway. Water is terrible, don't fill your tank up with it. Owners are very nice, but he was working on refurbishing a hauling trailer and spent lots of time banging and making excessive noise. No table, no fire ring, and very close to our neighbors.

With a senior pass, $3 is perfect. We usually spend two weeks at a time when visiting here, this year we stayed a month, only 14 day stays are allowed during peak season. The scenery is wonderful. This campground is very quiet on the weekdays, but weekends are a different story. This place has solar showers and one-holer flush restrooms....both could use some major cleaning. There is water in various places, you have to look for the spigots recommend you fill up as you drive in. A sign says no hoses to be attached to the water spigots, but it would be impossible to put water in your rig or a jug without a hose.....guess, they just want you to not hook it up to your RV. Also, a poster above said that only 32 feet is allowed, I believe the 32 foot limit is for only the first campground on the right.

Rate reflects Resorts of Distinction (ROD) rate. This park is nicely situated, one exit west for those wanting to go to Los Algodones, MX. The utilities worked fine. This park is gravel, and most occupants observe the 5 MPH speed limit, so the dust isn't too bad, but if you are on the back row next to the BLM land, the dust from traffic driving by can be a real hazard. The hot tub did not have HOT water, and the jets did not work.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful area, very quiet and peaceful. This campground is a standard BLM campsite....nothing to write home about, everything is well used and well worn, but adequate for a day or two of exploring the area. Campsites and the road around the park are not level and are narrow for larger rigs. We did just fine with some finagling. There are a couple of pull-through sites, too. Read the website description for the location. Milepost 40.5 on Highway 93.

Date of Stay:

Not too bad for an overnight stay. The tree pools as described by others are exactly as they say. We used the pool that was 104F., and wonderful heat, and private. We could have stayed in the pool as long as we wanted, 20 minutes was plenty. As witnessed by others, the 30 amp power was sketchy; we used it anyway, but did not connect to the water or sewer. We had to back out of our pull-through site. Use this place only as an overnight stay and nice soak in the hot pools after a day of driving, don't expect good RV park amenities.

Amazon paid for our 9 week stay here while we worked for the Camperforce in Fernley. We paid only $100./month for electricity. Very quiet, very clean, nice management....they even delivered our mail. Electricity was perfect 50 amp power, water pressure about 60 psi, most of the sites are pull-throughs that are paved and well marked. Pads are concrete with nice metal tables.....the faux grass is actually not bad. This place is VERY clean with the exceptionally friendly staff.

Rate reflects Senior Discount +$3 extra fee for shoreline site. Beautiful setting. This is an old USFS campground and has many low hanging branches that touched the antennas even on the main road. These branches could have easily been removed, but the park personnel seem more anxious to drive around in their shiny trucks, than clean restrooms, empty fire rings, or check for who and who had not paid. We saw several people fail to pay. Thankfully, we scouted the place out before picking a site and with some negotiating and swerving around branches and other obstacles, we were able to get our 36' motorhome situated in a very stunning spot. Most of the sites are not level, they are narrow, and don't have much privacy. We did use the shower in the GH loop, and it was not clean, but lots of hot water.

Rate reflects $0 for ROD. We stayed here for a week, great access to the beach which is just a few miles away. We had no problem with the 30 amp power, it worked just fine with better than average voltage, no voltage drop was detected. The staff is very friendly and we really enjoy the area. The park itself is nothing special, but fit our needs.

Date of Stay:

Great overnight stop. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. The Buffet is a real bargain at half price on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Utilities were easily accessible, sites are all wide and pull-through. There's not a lot to look at here, but very centrally located in California.

Rate reflects RPI membership. We stay here every year for a week while visiting Seattle. This is one of our favorite parks. It is very quiet on the weekdays. Satellite can be iffy, but can be found with patience and a portable dish. Our site only had 30 amp service. There are a few 50 amp sites, but they have always been taken by long term occupants. The pool and hot tub are very nice, but very noisy and crowded on the weekends. There are no sewer sites, and the access to the sewer dump is tough because you have to turn around to get to the proper side. The sewer dump has many pot holes, mud, and disgusting green algae.

Nightly Rate reflects ROD. ($0) If you like signs with posted rules, this is your place, they are plastered everywhere! We tried the Tengonet Wifi service for one day to see how well it worked. It only connected to one of our 4 devices, and was so slow that it was virtually impossible to do anything on the internet. There are very few 50 amp sites with full hookups. The campground is very quiet, clean and well maintained. The office personnel were very courteous.

Date of Stay:

Staff was very courteous as we had to change sites to be able to get in because maneuverability for our 36 foot motorhome was a bit of a struggle. Sites are semi-level, all utilities work well. We found the walk to the beach was very short in spite of what other reviewers have said. The swimming pool is small, but enjoyable. The location is very convenient. We will stay here again.
