San Felipe's Casino Hollywood, San Felipe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This business renamed itself Black Mesa Casino Travel Center RV park in December 2017. The RV park is a wide open area with pull through sites behind the Casino, with power at each site. The only water and dump site is communal ($10, if not paying for RV site) at the front of the RV park. All power pedestals are padlocked until you pay overnight fee at Guest Services in the Casino. Security will drive down and unlock the site number you pay for, you will get the code for the dump station with overnight fee, or just pay by credit card reader at the dump site. You may boondock (free) behind the RV park, near the motorsports park, but shut the genset off at 10pm, or security will knock on your door. Heed area wind warnings. RV park is in a natural bowl, making winds damaging to slideout covers. Pulled my slides in windy nights. We camped at San Felipe's Casino Hollywood in a Motorhome.

Black Mesa Casino, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Underutilized gem! Even during Balloon Fiesta, it's not overrun with noisy neighbors. RV lot is behind Casino and adjacent to truck lot, yet VERY quiet at night. Drive past Casino and hang a right into the RV space area. Pick a level site lined up to a power pedestal and park. Power boxes are locked until you pay, security is speedy getting back out to the lot before you to unlock the power box. Dump station is between RV area and casino (2 sites, with potable water). Water is potable but having seen others handling sewer hoses, THEN the drinking water hose, I bleach the works before I connect a drinking water hose to the spigot. The lot is very dark at night, enough to enjoy the stars. Have seen 1-3 coyotes while walking dogs, including one walking right through the park early in the am. I came here because of no space during Balloon Fiesta, and stayed because of the peace and quiet, and hospitality of the casino staff-very friendly. I see Casino security driving rounds regularly day and night, very reassuring. If passing through, dry camping (free) is available just north of the RV spaces, in front of the motorsports building (where the coyotes are hanging out). Dump station has a credit card box for payment ($10) if you are not paying to stay at RV park (code). Water pressure on filling water tank is low, so a full fill will take some time. The only weird happening: one Saturday, without prior notice, the Pueblo of San Felipe declared the pueblo (casino, gas station, restaurant) closed for a religious ceremony. They erected a barrier at the on/off ramps and closed everything until 4 pm. If you come upon this on any of the pueblos, just pull over and wait. We camped at Black Mesa Casino in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoyed a take out burger from the casino kitchen, but otherwise cannot spend much time inside the building because of the smoke. Can't stress enough about keeping dogs on leash, 1) so you know where they pooped and PICK IT UP, 2) Coyotes are right in the low bushes around the perimeter of the gravel lot or walking through the park after dark.

Texhoma Park, Dumas, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018
Overall Rating:

First night FREE city run park. Signs posted allowing "24 hour stay only". Drive past the playground (north) to the entrance to the campground. Power posts are protected by grey pipe cages. There is 50/30/20 amp on each. If a 50 amp rig is plugged in, a 30 amp will fit the opposite direction. Skip the first power pole coming in the park if you have 50 amp. The 50 amp plug needs replacing-insulation between poles missing. There are two dumpsters for trash. The dump station (water spigot-not sure if potable) is on the south side of the paved lot, access has you driving out of the park. Trees and grass surround the paved area, really appreciated on arrival (102F). Diesel is cheaper here than Amarillo, will be thanking Dumas with my gas fill! We camped at Texhoma Park in a Motorhome.

Sundance High Plains RV Park, Lamar, Colorado

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

Rate quoted is average of monthly rate. Going into 4th week (contract worker) here. New owners are doing something every day to turn this business around. It is apparent that the old reviews of this place don't apply to what I'm seeing now. I LOVE the site I'm in (24, south facing and wide open west view GREAT sunsets) for the view of open fields.

Horses are no longer allowed on-site, which might have explained previous reviews complaining about flies. Haven't had any problem with them.

Check-in was organized, warm and helpful. Any questions I've had have been attended to immediately and graciously. Getting into site and setting up was easy. All sites are pull-thru in a kind of 'circle the wagons' fashion. (Look at RV park on Google Earth to see configuration). Leveling was a snap, site is covered with nice size walkable gravel, some sites more sand than gravel. Power checked out clean on power management box. Water spigot is share between two sites with a splitter in place. Even with a neighbor, I have good water flow. Quality-very alkaline, leaves spots on everything, but that's beyond owner control. I drink Glacier water anyway, so I just have to dry the dishes instead of air dry with spots.

Every day I return to RV I see results of younger, energetic owners with a vision of an oasis in the prairie. Daisies planted this week, more removal of odd landscape features and odds and ends debris (previous owners).

They have cleaned up the covered central area that would be perfect for those traveling in a caravan to hang out to BBQ or socialize outside out of the sun. There is a fenced, lighted dog area with benches, bags and trash cans to let your dog stretch his legs. Tiny quail and rabbits run around, and there are two chickens (pets) in an enclosure under the trees that my dogs love to go visit. On days that the wind isn't howling we all enjoy a walk around the park, with trash cans conveniently spaced to drop dog doo into. Best feature is the quiet at night. We camped at Sundance High Plains RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Two Buttes Reservoir 26 miles south of Lamar, go to the "Black Hole" area for picnic (picnic table, pit toilet, lots of birdwatching, sheltered from howling wind). Shooting ranges at Two Buttes, and one 6 miles east of Lamar on Hwy 50 (Brown sign south side of road Higbee WMA).

Summer is snake season! Almost tripped on rattler last week, sunning in the middle of a gravel country road. Keep dogs on leash!! Have NOT seen any snakes inside the RV park...so far.

Margaret MacNider Park, Mason City, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

My stay at this park was work related, from July through mid Sept. The pluses include location convenience, very nice on site management that work hard to keep the park clean and safe. It is comforting to have a bona fide tornado shelter on site, even if not used. I'm writing this review to warn those with respiratory problems (asthma, COPD) from staying at this campground. All the W/S/E sites are sardine-can close together. Your rig will be 10-15 feet away from the neighbors fire ring. I had to leave this campground prematurely because of the immediate next site neighbors incessant smouldering fire and smoke inundating my Class A. I purchased a SECOND HEPA air filter during my stay there and it still wasn't enough. I couldn't keep acrid smoke OUT of my rig. Managers stated that their bosses (City of Mason City) would not consider a camping area without smoke rings for campfires, or, move the neighbors fire ring further from my rig. I think their insurance provider should probably be advised of this, too. After a week out of the smoke cloud that envelopes the park every day, I'm recovering my health....If your health may be worsened by constant smoke inhalation DON'T camp here!! We camped at Margaret MacNider Park in a Motorhome.

Charlestown State Park, Charlestown, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The rate quoted is for 50 amp site. There aren't many of them and they are booked up frequently. I paid $30/nite for an electric site until a 50 amp site with W/S/E-50amp opened up. Many of the sites show accomodating up to 45' online, but tree growth at the back of the site may limit that. Both sites I had (24-30 amp, 157-50 amp) were fairly level and able to put jacks down on paved apron. Sites are wide, so even though there is no tree cover between most sites, there is some separation from the neighbors.

Good Verizon cell and Hotspot signal pickup. Able to get over the air digital signal at both sites with antenna (CBS, NBC, PBS) 40 channels in all. Power showed clean on my external power boxes (30 amp + 50 amp) on a very busy weeked before July 4th. Water pressure good (doing laundry as I type this). Most of the neighbors have Indiana plates, so local. Park was not full this weekend, and cleared out pretty well by the 4th. Reserved 30 amp site the day before. Easy to get to freeway from Hwy 62. Charlestown close for groceries, and water heater plug I had to get to fix water leak. (O'Reillys). Lots of trash dumpsters within walking distance of site and very quiet at night. Heard fireworks, but from across the river, none allowed in park. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Cut N Shoot RV Park, Conroe, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Paid monthly rate $299 with another $100 deposit for electric (metered). Easy to get to park, though traffic on 105 can be slow at rush hours. Use Loop 336 off I45 to avoid going through Conroe (more traffic). Inner roads are firm packed caliche gravel, level with evidence of pot holes filled. Site is also firm packed gravel. Some trees, but not a lot shading RV sites. Many longer term renters and transient workers (chemical, oil),all of whom are quiet and friendly. Dogs love the huge grassy area to explore (on leash only). A fenced area for them to cut loose and run would make it perfect. Hookups well placed on site. Torrential rains submerged power cord for a couple of days, but a day of sunshine dried up the site without issues with mud or holes. Hope it doesn't rain like that when I leave! Over the air TV signal good. Verizon hotspot and cell phone work fine. Park is very quiet, with some traffic noise heard from 105, but even that quiets down too. Park is perfect to 'dock' the RV while I'm home in Houston, not having to fully unload. The trip into Houston on the tollway isn't nearly as painful as the freeway scramble on I45. The 45 mile trip takes about 45-50 minutes to get to the Heights. Groceries, Home Depot, etc. are all within 7 miles in Conroe. Owner is very welcoming. We camped at Cut N Shoot RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use EZ tag for tollways on motorhome and car for cheaper toll rates. Toll road use makes more sense when your this far out from Houston. Yes, I45 has been widened with more lanes, and an HOV lane, but still difficult. Leave the motor home in Cut and Shoot and take the toad! Post cards mailed from the Cut and Shoot post office will be a one of a kind postage marking.

Estrella Mountain Regional Park, Goodyear, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

There may be sites with sewer water and electric available intermittently, only if a camp host has moved out. Otherwise plan on dry camping, i.e. fill up your water tank, have a generator and/or solar panels and plan on driving out of the park to Flying J or another local RV park to dump tanks. I camped near the rodeo arena in the lower parking lot. The road is good asphalt all the way to the parking lot which is clean pea gravel that is groomed (chain raked) regularly by the camp hosts. It rained steady the first day and half I was there and the lot drained very well, no mud or standing water puddles. There are lots of trash receptacles in the lot and a port a potti for use by campers and day use folks at the trail head. This is a popular site for folks hauling their horses in a trailer, so parking along the sides of the large lot makes it easier for them to manoever in/out. There is no potable water for people, but there is a horse watering trough with a spigot near the trees at the trail headAccess to Phoenix, Goodyear, etc. is quick and it is very quiet at night...other than coyotes singing. Keep small dogs/cats on a leash and near you at all times. Camp hosts report seeing coyotes meandering through the lot in the day time, not fearful of people. I had to do minimal leveling on wedge levelers. The main reason I picked this park was proximity to the beautiful golf course within the park. There are no defined sites, just first come first parked. There is no shade in the lot, so camping here without power in hot season would be iffy. We camped at Estrella Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Grocery stores and other shopping within 8 miles of the camp site. The drive through the park to get out the gate is at least 3 miles. Gates are closed overnite, limiting joy riding throught the park after dark. Golf course was gorgeous. It had rained for a day and a half before we golfed, everything was GREEN. Cost-$29 per person included cart. Bathroom at Hole 4 appreciated. First hole was 544 from the white boxes. Only did 9 holes this visit, will have to come back for the back 9.

High Desert RV Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here in 2012, after horrible stays at RV parks inside ABQ city limits. Park is still the same welcoming, clean, organized place it was then. I40 noise wasn't as noticeable last stay because wind out of SW(summer). Oct winds mainly from the north, so I40 noise is present, but not ignorable. I had to leave this past week for service at Cummins, and returned to a different site. Both times I am able to drive into a pull thru site that is PERFECTLY LEVEL...didn't even need to extend level jacks. Hookups are neat/clean and protected by concrete barriers. Wifi (theirs) is painfully slow, but I have my own. I have been provisioning (online ordering) for another work gig and the office has been quite pleasant accepting my Amazon boxes. The dog runs (3) are very well fenced to keep small dogs in and the coyotes out. Coyotes are in the park after dark...singing their furry hearts out.(don't walk your dog off a leash!) The grounds are all neat and tidy, with zeriscaping fine gravel around small high desert plant life. Even the dog runs show tine marks from being raked regularly to make it presentable. There are three different areas to drop off trash, in addition to the dumpster at the back of the park. The office has a game room in the same building (pool table, pin ball, large TV, couches). It seemed very comfortable (couples watching World Series games). I can pull in 30+ channels DTV over the air. There is NO REASON to camp in ABQ any more! I look forward to coming back through in Feb, after my work contract is finished, for a little R&R. We camped at High Desert RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Loves truck stop is new since I was last here, and a welcome sight. Gas was cheaper than in town, and it's nice having a 24 hr convenience store right down the road. Grocery shopping, Wells Fargo and the Post office are all inside the Smiths a few miles down Central. Freightliner (new since last visit) has a maintenance shop across the fwy, Cummins at exit 159A (5 miles east on I40). Mobile RV tech does regular calls to this area. Camping World is on the north side frontage road about 2 miles west.

Salida East Recreation Site, Salida, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The site is FREE as of Oct 2016, but that will probably change. Two different stays (July 2016, Sept 2016. July stay had a Camp Host who kept an eye on things, Sept no camp host. Homeless tent campers doing drugs, leaving trash (needles, fecal waste....too lazy to use supplied toilet facilities}, having dogs off leash have ended the 'free' thing for this spot. Drug use and police calls to the site put this on BLM and the State of Colorado's radar to review what they were doing there. Meetings (public, BLM, Ark Headwaters) in Salida at end of Sept indicate that the site will probably be a pay site next year to recoup the money spent cleaning up after messy tent campers. Trash and problems not just limited to this site, either. You get what you pay for, a 'free' parking spot with no services. That said, try to park near a structure so that idiots driving in and around after dark won't hit your rig. Rafting companies pay for access at the put in on the river, and don't think the speed limit applies to them. We camped at Salida East Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

Use sewer dump($7) in Poncha Springs at the Visitor center (Hwy 50 and Hwy 285 intersection, look for small blue signs pointing the way) and they have a potable water spigot (winterized) on the side of the building by the dump site labeled "Donation $5". Sewer dump at Forest Service Office on Hwy 50 is closer, but more expensive$10, computer credit card reader harder to use. many campers have lost money there and the sewer wouldn't open. Water was another charge, too.

Billings Village RV Park, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The rate quoted is a monthly rate (28 days) divided by the monthly rate. I arrived in the park two months ago for a job, before trees were leafed out. The park is the cleanest I've been to in 10 years of working on the road. Though it is small, every site has a patch of grass and some shade from a tree or two. There is room enough to park two cars beside the RV in some spots, though it wouldn't give you any patio room. Flowers, trees and grass are in full bloom right now and give the park a homey feel. There is a playground area fenced in with a swing set, though there aren't many kids around since school is still in session. Owners just evicted a bunch of construction workers that weren't being good neighbors (noisy past 10pm, messy, sitting around drinking from liquor bottles after work). Owners gave them every opportunity to act right after complaints, and, acted IMMEDIATELY upon noise complaints. The location is perfect for shopping, with grocery store (Albertsons), major restaurants (Texas Road House & others), Cabela's all within a 3 mile radius.

The only thing that would make the park perfect, in my view, would be to have a fenced in dog area, but space doesn't allow it. Owners have tried to buy the 5 acre open field behind their property (fenced off) to expand, but City of Billings won't permit more RV spaces....too bad. RV people spend $$ when they are in your town. Ask Cabelas....they KNOW me. There is an off leash place to run the dogs at 'Norm's Island' a mile south of the park, WORTH VISITING!!
Owners/managers live on site and are the hardest working ones I've seen in 10 yrs of travel. The roses blooming at the entrance are testament to their care and love! I will certainly return to this park when I'm going through Billings. As for train noise, it is now hot enough to have your A/C unit neutralize that....

Lemon Grass Thai Restaurant on King St (west of RV park) has excellent, fresh food for the hot days when U don't want to cook.

Take a picnic lunch to Norm's Island with the dogs. One mile south of the RV park on S. Billings. Look for the Montana Audobon sign on the right after you go over the freeway, turn right down gravel road. Portacan on site in parking lot, no water-bring your own water for dogs. Lots of friendly people and dogs, off leash, right on the Yellowston river.

Amarillo Best Wonderland RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

The lady that answered the phone and greeted is a sweet as can be. Many RV items in office/store. Good directions to campground and good advice about routes given. Campground is built on the side of a hill, so the roads inside have at least a 6 degree tilt. Roads are paved with many patches to ruts and there is actual grass trying to grow in between the sites. Significant ruts plus the slope will pop items out (drawers, closet doors) if you go too fast. Leveling was done manually, resulting in a big drop off the step out the passenger door. I wanted to like this place, but the continuous din of dogs (multiple, big and small) barking past midnight, trucks with no mufflers tearing up and down the highway below the park, and people yelling (10:30pm) just didn't make for a restful night. Walking my dogs was not pleasant (uphill/downhill/slope/ruts). I am thankful they had a spot easy to get in and out of towing a car, but the noise factor (dogs and people) would put me off staying again, unless a storm was blowing that would drown out the other noise. We camped at Amarillo Best Wonderland RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cagle Recreation Area, New Waverly, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Spent two nights checking out new (to me) used diesel pusher before out of town trip. Host confirmed that the upper loop (first one on left) in park is the quieter of the two camping loops. Site 003 low on passenger side, so manual leveling done. Power, water and sewer were easy to connect, near back on driver side. Sewer connection had actual threads to hold adapter in, so no ballast rock needed. Dark enough to see stunning stars at night, and, VERY quiet. Cell signal spotty, but serviceable. Still figuring out TV connections in new rig, so didn't get TV signal, but host pulling in 20 channels over the air digital signal. Easy in/out to back in space with 38 foot rig. Roomy paved road with marked areas wide enough to park a boat on a trailer, or drop the towed car. Easy access (6 miles) to I45 and New Waverly for 2 grocery stores, hardware store, gas, etc.. Perfect for short escape from metro madness in Houston! We camped at Cagle Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Dumas RV Resort, Dumas, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

I did not see a pool, nor use their bathrooms or laundry facilities. This is definitely NOT a resort. The owner acknowledges 'problems' with the WiFi; there is no functional Wifi to the campground. You can connect to his local router, but the network will not allow you on. The owner has a convoluted explanation for this. The short story is he doesn't provide internet service because he doesn't have business class internet connection. Check-in involved paying the money then hunting for an open campsite. That was a mission to dodge large puddles in dips in the poorly graveled roads, including getting around the numerous 3/4 ton trucks parked in the roadway without dragging the car through a lake of puddle water. This is NOT a place you would want to navigate after dark! The site I found (close to the office) was level--a positive. I was able to pull in one TV station from Amarillo to get news on the storms rolling through the area. The rate paid includes Good Sam discount. Overall, I think it is too much. I could find better overnight parking on a closed gas station lot in town. We camped at Dumas RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Texan RV Ranch, Mansfield, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Rolled into the Texan at 2:30pm on a Tuesday in 106F/117F heat index temps. There are minimal shade trees in the park, but the site was perfectly level. A nice touch on the power poles is a light with on/off switch, making hooking up after dark a whole lot easier. I found it helpful when I was doing a rig check (tire pressures, hitch, etc.) before sunrise the next morning in the dark. The office staff were friendly, efficient, and the office seemed stocked with enough items so you wouldn't have to drive into town (some groceries, Iice cream, camp supplies, games for kids, souvenirs). The only negative I could find was the difficulty finding the park off the highway. Another sign or two posted at the odd intersection would point RVers past a stand of trees that keep you from seeing the RV park from the roadway. I heard no noise during my afternoon and overnight stay, but my A/C unit was running full out the whole time, too. I would stay here again for the convenience of getting on/off the highway, quietness, and level site....and not having to camp in Dallas or Fort Worth, yet still be near. It was a 10 minute drive to Fort Worth the next morning. We camped at Texan RV Ranch in a Motorhome.
