Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapees Park (members only), Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

For the past seven years I have regarded this Escapee RV Park, as my second home, and I have always provided favorable reviews. This will be my first negative review of SKP Saguaro. I suppose the rate increase, again, has shed some light on my regards for the place. SKP Saguaro has been offering first time visitors a great bargain price to stay for a week. Apparently that price is made up by increasing the price, daily, weekly, and monthly upon returning renters. The daily price is nearly equal, now, to Arizona State Park rates. As with all lease holder parks the residents change, and so do the lots. Fewer leaseholders make their sites available when they are gone. The newer leaseholders seem bent on destroying the landscaping of sites previous leaseholders spent a lifetime developing. The overall attractiveness of the park has decreased as a result. The newer leaseholders are adding more lights to block out the stars. I must add, the Wifi beyond the clubhouse is terrible. Oh well, things change, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy this place before the new crowd disrupted the beauty. Overall this is still a great place to stay because SKP Saguaro has always been light years ahead of other RV Parks in Southeast Arizona. I'll probably be back during the offseason, but I'll never fork out the funds for the daily rate, again. Price reflects the weekly price before the rate increase. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapees Park (members only) in a Motorhome.

Rusty's RV Ranch, Rodeo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

There are three aspects of this RV Park, which will dissolve any discrepancy, or negative opinion. They are the view, the quiet, and the really dark night sky. As expected, this place rest, to my desire, in nowhere. Yes, come prepared, and plan a visit, which offers the best viewing of the stars. Management does not allow outside lightning thus improving conditions for admiring the night sky. To my disappointment the pond was being renovated during my visit. During previous visits, Verizon came in great with full bars and 4G. Not so this time. I had to be in a specific place to receive calls, but could not call-out. The WiFi here, though, works great through-out the park. Remember when your here that someone on the other side of the RV Park can hear your voice. That is how quiet this RV Park can be. We camped at Rusty's RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tombstone Territories RV Resort, Huachuca City, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Been five years since our last visit to this RV Park. Management, and staff has changed, and with the change, in our opinion, an improvement in pricing, upkeep, and friendliness towards the traveling customers. Truly an RV Park for regular travelers, and part time snowbirders, since it appears management succeeds in keeping out rift raft, and those who set-up long term residents at sites. The sites have been improved with a good base of gravel, and excellent WiFi is available through the park. The TV cable selection has been upgraded with a good choice of channels. As five years ago, the sites are long and wide with an attempt to maintain some native vegetation between the sites. The views are panoramic in an isolated location far from city lights. Stayed here for three nights, and latter regretted not staying longer. We camped at Tombstone Territories RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Desert Trails RV Park (40+ park), Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

After avoiding this RV Park for five years, I returned since I could use my Passport America discount. My opinion, and rating of this RV Park has not changed. I realize the snow birders who loyally stay here each winter season love this place. It's an okay place, especially so when other Tucson RV Parks are placed in the mix, for a few nights during the off season. During the offseason when the place is only one third occupied or less, the tight narrow RV sites are not so bad. Those small sites, are not level. The lanes are very narrow. I advise to avoid ustheng tiny pool, which during my stay was a toxic chemical bath. The electrical system here appears to be hundred years of age, and thus has the potential to inflict considerable damage to unprotected RV appliances. The facilities smell like rats, and are not cleaned well. Regardless this place will be full in a few months. I suppose there is little incentive for the owner to upgrade the RV Park to modern standards. I cut my visit short, and I suppose I'll go another five years before returning. We camped at Desert Trails RV Park (40+ park) in a Motorhome.

Jojoba Hills SKP RV Resort - Escapees Park - 55+ Park (members only), Aguanga, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We have been here at this RV Park the past two weekends for a total of five nights. We both agree, absolutely, this is second best RV Park we have had the pleasure to visit. This Escapee SKP membership park is outstanding with terrific attractive landscaped level sites. The entire park is well landscaped due to the benefit of two well flowing artesian wells. Nearly all sites have a view of mountains. The only downfall is the low number of selected unoccupied sites available for guest. As the fall season approaches the number of available sites will dwindled. Facilities here are top rate, and there is free internet in the clubhouse. The price is high in comparison to other Escapee Parks. Yet Jojoba is in California. Overall an excellent place to visit and stay overnight. We will definitely be back.

Casa Grande RV Resort , Casa Grande, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

A good place for an overnight to escape the wind and heat of driving. Despite the discrepancies of the RV sites, a good value because there is a good size pool, fitness room, and excellent clean restrooms. We found there are a number of serious problems, which will cause us to look elsewhere, or to restrict our stay to one night. Most of the sites have very thick course gravel rock. Most sites are not level because of the manner of how the gravel was placed. Utility pedestals are back to back, and we noticed many have not been maintained. Sewer connections are in the middle of the RV parking space. So many have been run over. Very noisy here due to sirens, heavy traffic, boom boom music from passing traffic, train in distance, and planes. Occupants are primarily workers who get up early, sunrise, and run their diesel trucks before departing for work. Lot of bright light at night from numerous streets lights. WiFi is extremely poor. We camped at Casa Grande RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Abilene State Park, Tuscola, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

On a weekday, when school in still in session, this is an excellent place for an over night stop or as a destination location for a few nights. I've never been here on a weekend. The park could be difficult to locate the first time. Find Buffalo Gap and then follow the signs, carefully. The Pecan loop has excellent, and spacious sites, for RV trailers or motorhomes. Most are level, and will easily accommodate a twenty four foot motorhome. The utilities are excellent and well placed. There is no sewer connection for the Pecan loop sites. The big negative here is the restroom. It is centrally located within the loop, but way to small for the potential number of people. The restroom is in need of a major renovation. There are plenty of trails here for biking or hiking. The place is dark at night, as it should be. There are an assortment of natural night sounds here including a chorus of Poorwills, and frogs. These pleasant sounds can be vastly disturbed by the occasional flyover by a B-1 Bomber. We camped here in a Motorhome, and we will return again next May.

Kofa Ko-Op - Escapees Park (members only), Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

A rather good RV Park in the Yuma area for a night or two. The RV Park is well to the south of I-8, so a lack of traffic noise. In fact, there is virtual no traffic sounds here. Military jets and helicopters will occasionally disrupt the quiet. Farm land, and a few homes borders the RV Park. I suspect strong winds may cause some blowing dust problems. There is an excellent pool here. The clubhouse is in extreme need of an update. Overall, I enjoyed my stay, and will likely return.

Alamo Lake, Wenden, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Alamo Lake SP has five separate campgrounds. This review is for Campground C, which has electric and water hook-ups at developed sites. In my view, based on my stay, the Arizona State Park systems is misleading campers. Alamo Lake SP is hyped as a magnificent star gazing place to camp. This is not so for Campground C. To my surprise, on a moonless sky night, I discovered the campground has at least seven bright glowing street lights. Those lights definitely interfere with viewing the stars. The bright casting glow of Phoenix is also, present in the sky here. Sites are somewhat attractive. A combination of pull-through and back-ins. A few are not level. The loop road is very rough. Oddly, the dump station sits at the entrance and exit to the campground. If an RV is dumping, the exit can be blocked. We camped here in a motorhome and will not return during the spring break period. We camped at Alamo Lake in a Motorhome.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of our favorite places to swim and to enjoy the migration of birds. Unfortunately, the Lea Lake campground is not one of our favorite campgrounds. Like many other New Mexico State Park campgrounds it is in need of loving care. During our stay the houseflies were horrendous. It must be a seasonal thing or poor sanitation. We have been here before during October and each time we had hundreds of flies on the Motorhome. Park staff like to indicate the restroom was clean by marking down the date and time it was clean. Doing so does not actually make the restroom clean. Restroom conditions are terrible and appear to be in need of a massive professional cleaning service. They have been neglected for months. For mysterious reasons the day use area restroom was closed on October 17. The campground restroom became the only usable restroom in the park. Simple household metal trash cans are utilized here for trash. Raccoons go through them every night and litter the surrounding area with trash. Park staff does not always pick-up the trash. There were a couple of campground host units on site. During our week stay we didn't see them doing anything, but drive around on carts.

There is Wi-Fi here and it actually works well at certain times of the day. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Dream Catcher RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is an excellent RV park for an overnight stay. It is just a vast gravel area with widely spaced meter boxes. One row of sites has a few trees. The sites are gravel just like the access roads and just like everything else. The exception is a grassy area for pets and a dying grass lawn on one side of the clubhouse. The advertised Wi-Fi is actually the network of an adjacent Quality Inn, which allows users of the RV Park to use the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi does not extend into the RV Park. The Quality Inn allows the RV Park users access to the pool and the fitness room. The pool is not heated. After a few weeks on a journey to campgrounds and RV Parks well beyond the city life, the noise of Deming was noticeable. Train and I-10 traffic noise woke us up several times during the night. We have been here before and will likely return for overnight stay. We camped at Dream Catcher RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Motorhome.

Navajo Lake State Park, Pine Main Campground, Navajo Dam, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking forward to staying at this State Park campground for a few days. After one overnight, we were glad we only paid for one night. We should of followed our instincts the moment we drove-in, and left. There is so much open space along the lake, but the campground sites are packed into a small and congested area. The campground is situated well above the lake with excellent views. Access to the lake from the campground is difficult. Some sites are level and sufficient for moderate size RV units. Most are not level and nearly all are without spaciousness and privacy from the neighbors. The paved loop roads are narrow and could be a challenge for a big rig. What drove us away was the unexpected crowd and residential living. It was mid-week during October and only a few sites were available. By evening the place was full. Supposedly, there a 14 day limit. Many of the campers looked like they have been on site for many weeks. Many had school age kids and we wondered why they were not in school. The noise level here at night was rather bad. Needless say, we will not return to this place. We camped at Navajo Lake State Park, Pine Main Campground in a Motorhome.

Heron Lake State Park, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here a couple of nights in the Blanca Campground just before the seasonal restroom closure. Perhaps because of the pending closure and the departure of the campground host, the restroom was left untouched in a poor sanitary condition. The same status prevailed in the adjacent Willow Campground. Loop roads are gravel and the spacious sites are basically a combination of dirt and loose gravel. There are an assortment of sites and most will accommodate various size RVs. Privacy at both campgrounds is at a premium with plenty of juniper trees and other native vegetation. Both campgrounds are on the edge of the Verizon zone. In the Blanca campground cell phone reception is sufficient between sites 39 and 45. At the Willow Campground, reception is best at site 21. Otherwise there is zero VZ coverage here. To find the lake one must go hiking. The lake level is extremely low and there is evidence its been low for a prolonged period of time. Actual access to the lake is difficult due to the soft quick sand like surface along the water edge. Only a few other campers during our stay on a weekend. It was very quiet with dark sky nights and secluded. We stayed here in a Motorhome. We camped at Heron Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Trinidad Lake State Park, Trinidad, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is an upgraded modernized campground with a lucrative restroom. Unfortunately, the park system did not have the wisdom to produce a campground with spacious sites. Generally, the sites are unleveled, close together and most are out in the open with little privacy. The best sites and more spacious reside on the outer edge above the lake. The campground is locate well above the lake, along the edge of a very steep slope. There is little or no access to the lake. Boating, water skiing, tubing, and other water activities are permitted. For some odd reason swimming is not permitted. After paying the steep price for camping, we had to use quarters to take a shower. Sites come with electric, but there is no water at the sites. Water spigots are difficult to locate and most are not along roadway. There is not much to do at this campground. There is limited lake access, a few short trails and everyone, including day users, are crowded into a small area. At least on the weekend this arrangement results in considerable disturbing campground noise. We camped here in a Motorhome and we will not return to this State Park.

Lathrop State Park, Walsenburg, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The 30 year old plus campground restrooms are shameful. They can only be used by one person at a time. So if someone has actually paid for a shower, the toilet is not available. Overlooking the restroom situation, this is an excellent park and an excellent place for RV camping. There are three campground loops with an assortment of sites. Most are level, some are pull through, and nearly all are very spacious with attractive juniper and pinyon trees. Verizon works great here and we had no problem getting Dish Network. Water is not included at the sites, but at some sites the spigots are rather close for a temporary connection. Sites have a view of the Spanish Peaks and the lakes.
