This is the best KOA we have ever stayed in and the best RV park in Cortez. We had a large site with a great view of the mountains. The electric was strong as was the wifi most of the time. We also had good Verizon cell and data signals. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was the many smoky fires.

Date of Stay:

We planned to stay for a week, but we were unable to get a reliable dish signal signal. We were told we could get it if the dish was movable, but we would have had to put in almost in the road to possible get a signal. We had a back-in site which was difficult to get into because of vehicles parked on the road and in front of neighboring sites. Staff very nice, office had great tourist info. Wifi strong. Good Verizon signal. Most of the sites are long-term people working in the area. That was not a problem. Just the lack of good TV signal. Cable worked fine, but we like our Dish TV. Less than half the sites are pull-through. Site was so narrow, we had to move the table to open our slide and we could hardly walk around the RV on either site. Rate is the daily rate. Weekly rate would have been $29 a night.

Date of Stay:

Rate is the weekly rate. Daily with Good Sam is $43. We loved this RV park. Many sites have grass, some are gravel. The sites are arranged in a haphazard way, but we had plenty of room. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and there are ponds and the Pine River flows through the park. Catch and release fishing is allowed. The wifi is good most of the time. We had good Verizon cell and data. Electric was strong and good. A delightful surprise in Bayfield. Durango and Pagosa Springs are both close enough to be easy to visit. Good Dish signal in our site, some sites it would be difficult of impossible.

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed our stay here. The sites were fairly spacious. The owner guided to our space and helped us get parked in a site where the turning radius was very tight. The wifi was reliable. We had a fair Verizon cell and data signal. The sites in the tree canopy area had great green space in the center. The park is quiet and only about a mile out of town. We had excellent satellite signal. We would come here again.

Date of Stay:

The only negative here was the unreliable wi-fi and the very weak Verizon broadband signal. The park is quiet and you are really nestled in the mountains with great views and the Rio Grande River runs right through the property, just across the driveway. We would definitely come again.

Date of Stay:

This is a fairly nice campground, clean, green grass. It is EXPENSIVE and has side-by-side hookups. Most sites seem level, ours was not. Our steps ended about 12 inches from the ground. Most sites had concrete pad, ours was asphalt. Laundry is well equipped, but expensive and one of my dryers didn't get hot enough. We hope to not have to come here again. There are probably lots of people who wouldn't feel as negative as we do.

Date of Stay:

We had a great site, lots of space. It was quiet and we love Cherry Creek. There are lots of trails for walking, and the lake provides swimming, boating, and fishing for those who want those activities. Our only complaints were the dead trees that should have been cut down and removed and the terrible roads. It takes money to repave the roads, but they have plenty of staff to cut down the trees.

Date of Stay:

We really enjoy this campground. We had a level site with a great view. The only issue was web site information that said we needed 100 ft of hose because there are shared water hook-ups. What we found was a water hookup 100 ft across the road. We had to fill our tank, rather than be hooked up to water. That should have been made clear. This is a strange campground. There were 3 tables and grills for 2 camp sites in some places. The restrooms are clean, but the one in our loop, Juniper, was closed and the next one had metal toilet bowls with no toilet seat. The newer loops are nicer but the sites are closer together. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We have stayed here several times and always enjoy our stay. However, the park is old and needs some TLC. We were in the big rig section, numbered 200 and above, and the sites are all clean and nice and have good spacing. In the older parts of the park, many of the grassy areas are mainly weeds, there are lots of dead trees and trees needing trimming. We were here a week and there were 3 dryers out of service the entire time, as well as one washer. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We will stay here again. The Wi-Fi is strong, as were our Verizon cell and Internet signals.

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed this state park campground and exploring the ruins there. The park is quiet and comfortable. Nearby Winslow is interesting to visit. We will come here again if we want to stay in this area. Our campsite was large with an asphalt pad.

Date of Stay:

The park is aging and could do with some upgrades. The nearby airport brings lots of noise from small planes taking off and landing. The sites are fair sized. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will come here again if we are going through Gallup on I-40.

Date of Stay:

This is a very clean, attractive and quiet RV park. There are many, many rules, none of which we object to, but they really are over the top. Expensive but we would definitely come here again if we are in the area. It is an adult park and it is good to not have a lot a children running around. If you have satellite TV, be sure to ask for a site where you can get it. We couldn't because of the trees.

Date of Stay:

This is an older park, but a great location if you want to watch the Grand Canyon Train. Excellent WiFi and strong Verizon signal. Restrooms were spotless. Laundry room is old, but a good value. Three of the four washers were working; they are large and efficient. Dryers all worked well. Since the park wasn't full during our stay, staff spaced RVs every other site unless people were traveling together. They smoothed the gravel roads nearly every day.

Date of Stay:

This is a great place to stay, like a remote site but with full hookups. We love it. However, many sites are not very level. There are great views of the surrounding mountains and beautiful northern New Mexico scenery. The west campground has better sites and 50-amp but no restroom facilities. The east campground has 30-amp service and numerous side-by-side hookups. It does have a restroom facility and laundry. There is no wifi in the campground. We had good Verizon broadband and cell signals. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This was once a KOA campground and is being modernized by new owners. Sites are fairly level. We were assigned to one site but told we could choose among several others if they suited us better. The 50-amp service was strong and reliable. Water pressure was low. We had been told ahead of time to use a filter and bring drinking water, since their well water isn't great. The owner called the day of our arrival to tell us our site number since she was going to be away from the park when we arrived. The next day, she called again to tell us we had paid too much when we self-registered. Great customer service. The wifi was very good. They still have work to do to make this a really nice park, but they are working toward that. We would stay here again.
