This is a rather good place to stay, adjacent to a lake, during the week days. The campgrounds tend to be noisy and crowded on the weekends by boaters and family groups. RV campers tend to occupy the non-reservation sites and the reservation sites are primarily unoccupied and available for one night at a time. Supposedly, one night at a time. The office staff becomes highly irritated when a camper wants to stay in a reservation site without a reservation. The staff fails to indicate, which sites are available. So much easier to stay in the air conditioned office and fool arrivals the reservation sites are occupied. Still, overall, an enjoyable place to stay with excellent views of the mountains, and quiet sounds of an isolated location off I-25.

This is another New Mexico State Park gradually showing signs of neglect. The staff, when present if at all, are getting lazy. The 15 reservation sites were empty each night and the online reservation web site clearly indicated all 15 sites to be available for one night at a time. Yet the staff fails to flip over the site's reservation marker. Just the same we stayed over night in one of the reservation sites. This becomes a necessity because rift raft types hang out for extended periods in the south part of the loop. Campground roads are mostly dirt and become muddy following a rain. Many of the cottonwoods and pine trees have died. Plenty of trash gets littered by people who are fishing and most of the trash looks like it been in place for months. Staff likes to hang-out in some sort of utility room at the restroom. They do this instead of opening up the visitor center and office. Despite the short comings, this is a great place to bird watch and to enjoy the sounds of the Rio Grande. There is no sewage dump station available here.

The campground is located on a sloping alluvial plain, at the base of the mountains and adjacent to the opening of Dog Canyon. A few sites, with electric hook-ups, will accommodate moderate or small size motorhomes or trailers. The sites are spacious with native vegetation, and a few are level. Most sites are not level and can be difficult to park-in for large size vehicles. During our recent stay, off-season, there was no park staff and no campground host. Late night arrivals were a common disturbing feature. Without any staff present, day or night, the local residents make nightly runs to fill the dumpsters, use the restroom, and hunt wildlife. There was not really any need for us to pay the camping fee. No one checked and no one cared.

This is a dark sky, solitude, quiet RV park. Those annoying battery power lights and lights strings are not allowed here. Without a major city or a residential area within 50 miles, the night skies are dark here. The place is absolutely quiet. There are no trains, buses, trucks, planes or boat traffic to disturb the natural sounds blessing this place. A number of improvements have enhanced the grounds including a new gravel, gated entry off the main road. The clubhouse now has an enhanced outdoor patio area, excellent Wi-Fi is available through-out the RV Park. During our stay the pond was being renovated. Panoramic views of the surrounding area is outstanding.

The spring fed pool is the primary attraction and a terrific place for swimming. The campground though is undesirable and in much need of renovation. We stayed here for two nights during a cross country road trip. We have stayed here many times during previous years. It is apparent to us the campground and facilities are being neglected. Lawns have turned to dust and interest in keeping restrooms clean and in good working order has dwindled. The restrooms were not cleaned during our stay. The campground has aged to a point of no return and is in need of a serious make-over.

A terrific overnight location well south of I-10 and beyond the urban sprawl of Deming. We stayed here for a single night going and returning from a cross country road trip. Sites are spacious and most have an incredible panoramic view of Deming and well beyond. It is a great place for viewing the stars since there are no lights except the ones from other campers. The drawback or negative for this campground are the dirt loop roads and the group camp shelter. Any amount of wind will stir up the dust from the roads which are not paved. The group camping shelter is placed in the middle of the loop with hook-ups. When there are no group campers this is a quiet and great place to stay overnight.

This is a Pima County operated campground, well isolated from Tucson, and consisting of three established loops in an attractive Saguaro desert setting. The tall saguaros are a common feature and some sites have multiple saguaros. We camped in Loop A where there are good panoramic views of the desert and mountains. Only a few sites of Loop A will accommodate rigs over 35 feet. The majority of the sites are vastly unleveled with chunky gravel. The electrical connection is a small out dated 30 amp box, which does not have a circuit breaker switch. Sites of Loop C and H have an improved 30 amp pedestal connection. Those who stay in Loop H get to hear the mechanics of the campground sewage treatment facility and endure the bright lights of the entrance station. The place was over 75 percent unoccupied when we arrived, afternoon, for our three day stay. How nice we thought. Soon as the entrance station closes at 4 PM, the river of evening campers, including RVs, pour into the campground. Many are late arrivals, noisy and rude, and depart early probably to avoid payment. This was the general disturbing pattern for each night during our stay. We did not see any of the many campground host or park staff make rounds of the campground after the office closed. Restrooms are kept clean, but they are small and there are no showers. We enjoyed our daytime experience here and will likely stop here again for an overnight visit.

This RV Park is perhaps the true desert gem of the Salome area. The big attraction here are the miles of desert (BLM or AZ State Land) ATV, jeep, and mountain bike trails. During my stay the trails were a bit dusty from ATV use, but I still found miles of suitable bike trails. The sites around me were vacant and most sites are somewhat spacious. A few may have a Palo Verde tree at the site. The 18 hole golf course remains history with no green grass. The RV Park is in the process of adding a building for fitness equipment. The clubhouse and its restrooms are neglected when it comes to cleaning. The clubhouse has one of the largest library collections I've seen at an RV park. A good value at half price. No where near the value of paying full price night to night.

This RV Park is good for an overnight and perhaps a second night. It is located out in the middle of some very flat mesquite and farmlands. During my stay the place was nearly full. The entrance and clubhouse area has some attractive cactus landscaping. The use of plants stops there. The majority of sites are barren. Some have concrete parking, but most are gravel. Sites may or not have some sort of shed or casita. The park is far enough away from Casa Grande to offer the potential for star gazing. Yet, the place is soaking in bright lights at night. The clubhouse has the only restroom, which was laughable. I thought I was back at a California State Park. They charge quarters for a shower here. There is no privacy offered in the restroom. Two tiny toilets are fitted into a cramped space behind a wooded blind saloon style partition. Most adults are not going to fit on the toilets. The clubhouse itself was a disappointment and not what I am accustom too at Escapee parks. Bottom-line! This is the worst Escapee SKP park in the USA. I may return, but only for a night, again.

Warning! When the opportunity arrives this RV Park will rip you off. We signed up for a month with plans to stay through the winter. After all, the price was right, and the RV Park was far away from the city atmosphere of Phoenix. Unfortunately, this RV Park is now catering to attract workers for the nearby nuclear power plant. Those workers come and go at all hours of the day and night. There is a good deal of traffic noise from those workers. That noise is combined with the loud I-10 traffic noise. We decided to leave after 20 days and find a quiet park elsewhere for the winter. We did not ask for a refund on the monthly price. We did request the unused portion of the $50 electric deposit. Management refused to return our entitled electric refund. Shame on them, and they have a well developed system to avoid returning your electric deposit. They never did ask why we were leaving early, and they did not say thank you for returning. We will not return.

My plan was to spend a full month at this RV Park. Instead I stayed just one night. Since my last visit a year ago, an enormous towering Las Vegas style neon sign, advertising the casino, has been installed. An unacceptable eyesore for me and considerable night time neon light pollution. It is absolutely incredible how such an attractive RV Park can have such remarkable unleveled concrete sites. There are a few level sites and none were available for me. Most Motorhome owners may not realize the damaging stress an unleveled concrete site inflicts on the chassis. The Wi-Fi is poor, the pool is extremely small and an overnighter must ask a staff member for a key to the restroom. Those restrooms are closed when you most need a restroom. By first appearance the sites look spacious. They are not spacious once your neighbors move-in. I think the next time Good Sam inspects this place they may want to actually walk around and look at the sites. Stayed here one night, and I will not return.

This is an outstanding small RV Park - well taken care of and reflecting pride in ownership. Like previous reviewers stated, this is a great place to stay. West Clear Creek flows adjacent to the RV Park and is accessible by a short level walk. The creek provides fishing and swimming opportunities. There are pools large enough to actually swim laps once the water warmed up by the middle of May. Wi-Fi is provided and for my Site the signal was too weak. Plenty of shade is provided by trees and selective sites can obtain satellite TV without much trouble. The only negative for this RV Park is the weekend Highway 260 noise and the noise created, at times, by the low rent district neighborhood across the highway. Must not forget, I rate the showers here the best of any RV Park in Arizona and perhaps the nation. I stayed here for over a month and I will not hesitate to stay here again.

This quiet, dust free, away from the highway, RV Resort no longer has a viable green 18-hole golf course. The course was abandon three years ago. The exercise room is gone, as well. I wasn't set on playing golf, and it was an enjoyable place to stay for a week. The paved access roads are plenty wide, and the back-in top-notch gravel sites are spacious. Some are adjacent to a 9-Hole short course green zone. A few park models are mixed-in with the level sites. Tengo Wi-Fi is offered for a fee. Verizon 3G works great since there is a tower across the main road. The place was less than half full for February. Perhaps the odd trash rules, guest are required to uncover the pool if they want to swim (not an easy task), the pet policy, and lack of upkeep is driving snow birders elsewhere. Just the same I enjoyed the extra space during my stay. Plenty of adjacent trails to trail bike and hike. I am not sure if I will return.

The previous review makes a good point about this RV Park. The place is double charging those who select a 50 Amp site or a premium site. Why bother with the extra charge for a 50 Amp site when electric is not included? We have been here before and we once gave the place a perfect ten. No more! We once found this an ideal location for star gazing. Now there are bright security lights and the clubhouse is decked-out in bright lights to appear as a bright sore thumb in the night. The maintenance of the clubhouse has gone downhill and the indoor pool area is a mess with dirt, cobwebs and insects. The doors stay open all day so the bugs flood into restrooms. The clubhouse could use a good make-over. The rate reflects Passport America. Not sure if we will return unless we see better reviews in the future. They charge to much.

The time of year and the campground selected can make a big difference in the perception of this State Park. This rating is for the main campground, which is situated above the lake and has three separate loops. Two of the loops are entirely reservation sites and none of the sites have 50 Amp. They are 30 Amp and there are no shade trees. Each has a solid ramada with a concrete pad and grill. Interior roads and sites are dusty gravel. Most of the sites are pull-through. Those in the Stallion Loop are the most spacious and not parallel to the interior road. Access to the lake is via the boat ramp road and the lake level is very low. The boating and weekend crowd on a Friday in August is missing in action. Perhaps because of the low water levels. Verizon has a strong signal here and so does the 3G aspect. We will likely return here.
