The whole Salt River Recreation Area which this dry camping area is part of has problems relating to dry camping with RVs. They have shut down two areas where dry camping had been available and so now, this is the only one left where RVs can still park. In cutting costs, they no longer have any park hosts as well and the ranger only drives through evidently not noticing the dumpster overflowing with trash. This place has become crowded and noisy since there is no place left to camp unless you are tent camping. Too bad, this is a beautiful spot. If we stay here again we will drive over first to make sure we can get our rig in due to crowding.

We are new members here and just love it. We are members and do not pay a nightly rate. This could be the most beautiful, best run RV park you have ever been to. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful. All of the hookups are more than adequate. The water quality is excellent. There are beautiful mountain views from just about every site. Unless you come here as a guest of a co-op member, you will have to be an Escapees member. We love being members of this beautiful RV park.

This is a fine place to overnight in a pretty dismal area. The manager was just excellent and very helpful in every way. The hookups were adequate. The parking surface is the local sand, gravel and dirt that when wet is kind of a mess. Everything else is fine. The shade is fairly marginal in an area where there aren't many trees. Let's remember that this is the desert with high winds and blowing sand at times. This is the best RV park we have found in the area so if we happen to be in the area, we would stay here again.

I love this place! We occupied a pull-through site with our 38 foot motorhome. We were able to get DirecTV by peeking through the abundant tree coverage. Make sure you come to this campground with water in your tank and your other tanks empty. There is no dump in the park. There are new asphalt roads and site parking. The campground host was very helpful. I was surprised that you could hear so much highway noise here. Thanks for the co-mingled recycling here; wish Corps of Engineers would do likewise in their campgrounds. We would stay here again.

This is a good park for an overnight stop, with great work campers employed to greet you properly. The pool and spa were a refreshing surprise after a hard day at the wheel. The morning coffee and rolls were very welcome.The pull-through site was level with a pea gravel surface. It was however, like a massive motorhome parking lot. Parts of the park aren't very nice. The utilities were very nice, the Wi-Fi was awful even though we were parked right next to the antenna. The cable TV was great. There is very little shade here. We would stay here again for a night.

This park is great pleasant surprise campground to to stay at, with new 50 amp service and asphalt paved level pull-through parking pads. We had great DirecTV and Verizon Wireless coverage. We had nice shade too. There were very few campers in the park. The fishing is supposed to be great in the lake too. We would definitely stay here again.

The rate reflects the senior rate. This Corps park was nice but not quite as nice as others we have stayed at. They haven't upgraded to 50 amps like others have. There are no water hookups at the sites so bring your own water or fill your tank at the many faucets spotted around the park. The park volunteers were great. There is no recycling in the park; shame on you Corps of Engineers. This is the home area of Will Rogers so we enjoyed the the boyhood home and the memorial museum. We would stay here again.

The park is a pretty good one. We loved the barbecue they have every evening. If you happen to be here on a Saturday, do not miss the Gallup Flea Market. I even had a traditional Navajo meal of roast mutton and fry bread there. Anyway, back to the RV park. All of the hookups were adequate; you may wish to employ a pressure reducer on the water. The dog park was great and our dog loved it. The parking surface is gravel and spaces are pretty level. They have side by side parking. There is no recycling in the park which they should consider adding to their offerings here. The family-staff are very friendly and competent. They have a great little store with lots of interesting and useful items for sale. We definitely would stay here again.

Too bad we are only staying here one night. This is an absolutely beautiful park and campground. We stayed in the full hookup CG near the entrance. The camp site was paved with concrete and pretty level. We could leave our toad hooked up since we had a pull through. The utilities were more than adequate. You will want to use a water pressure regulator here. The only thing that was a problem was the confusing signs directing us to the campground. Sorry we had no time to try out the trout fishing that brings most people here. We would certainly return here if we are ever in this area.

This is a nice Corps of Engineers park but not quite as nice as others we have stayed at. The sites are electricity only and we were able to secure one with 50 amp service. There are water faucets spotted around the park to fill your tank. There is absolutely no recycling of any kind in the park; shame on you, Federal Government. We were able to get a great DirecTV signal from space 50 and our Verizon Wireless signal was adequate as well. We would stay here again.

The park charges extra for electricity for our site where we stayed for two months. The site price reflects the monthly rate. Because we stayed here two months, we were able to park our motorhome on the pond, which was a much nicer site than the RVs parking in the E section had. If you don't like kids in the pool and lots of activities for kids, don't come here. The place has been owned by the same family for 75 years and in all of those years, they have learned an incredible amount about how to serve their customers properly. Our granddaughter spent considerable time with us here and totally loved the place. The hookups were adequate, however sewer caps instead of a rock would be nice, a faucet that didn't leak would be better but all in all, we loved our experience here. Shopping is nearby. Our Verizon signal was great. In spite of the heavy tree density, we were able to peek through with an adequate DirecTV signal. Crank-up antenna produced a number of channels. We definitely would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground right on the Mississippi River. The price reflects the half price senior discount for a site close to the river. I used the nearby Great River Bike Trail often during the week we spent here. We had to make use of their storm shelter in the bath house during our stay. The park hosts went to each site to tell the occupants a severe storm was coming; that was great service. The electrical hookup was spot on voltage but be aware that there aren't water hookups in the sites and certainly no sewage hookups. There is a real good dump station available and water faucets are spotted around the park to fill your tank. We would certainly stay in this park again.

We stayed here to be close to friends in the area. We received a small Escapees discount. About half of the sites are not very level so you may want to make sure to ask for a level site when making your reservations. We had an unlevel site and had to raise the front of our motorhome high up to get level. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel. The utilities were adequate with the water and electric spot on. The sewer connection was about a foot and a half off the ground, which would have been much better at ground level. There are nice trees in the park for some shading. We had a picnic table in our space. We would stay here again when visiting our friends in the area.

This park is one we have stayed at a number of times over the years but have not stayed at for over 5 years. The long time managers who went out of their way to greet us and make us feel welcome have retired. The new managers are very competent and cordial but we missed the the greeting we were used to here. The utilities were adequate except the WiFi was just about unusable for us even close to the the antenna. Our Verizon and DirecTV was good here. The cable TV had lots of channels. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel and this particular site could have been a little more level by our front door. We would stay here again for a night or two.

The rate is the senior rate. This is the most wonderful COE park we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at many. The people who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautifully cared for. There is considerable space between rigs which allows a lot of privacy. The parking surface is asphalt and our site was very level. The water and electric services were OK. We were able to get both DirecTV and Verizon from our lake front site. We would return here again.
