We used this park for a quick overnight stop, in after closing/out before opening, which led to some problems. Friendly and efficient reservation over the phone. We had the same problem others have had when exiting I-40 from the west. You need to NOT exit at Eastern Street, exit 73 despite what your GPS says, but go on to the next exit, #74 and double back on the service road. The written directions to my pull through site mis-directed me to the wrong orientation and I had to find my way to the correct access in the dark. The pull through sites seem to be back ins that you reach by pulling through adjacent empty back in sites. OK for my purposes, but a Walmart parking lot may have been simpler.

We stayed in the campground portion of this park. I think their main attention is to the upscale resort portion, where they sell & rent sites. The check in was friendly and efficient. Not many of the sites were taken. All gravel with concrete patio/ picnic table pads. The shower stalls are cramped and could have used some cleaning. Convenient to Moab and Arches National Park. There are several alternatives in the Moab area, but this one is certainly adequate.

This has to be one of the best RV resorts we have ever stayed in, especially near a remote scenic area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The facilities are very nice. There is a small, well stocked store on site. Weak Verizon service, as others have said, but a booster is available in the office at no charge. I do not count that against the park. If I had wanted to use my cell phone, I could just have stayed home. I highly recommend this park for staying near Zion National Park.

Very, very nice RV resort. Friendly and helpful staff with efficient check in and escort to site. We did not use the facilities much, but they looked very nice. Twenty four (24) hour security. Convenient to the Strip, etc. We would definitely return. I recommend this park for a stay in Las Vegas.

This is probably as good as you can expect for a full hookup RV park within a national park. Friendly check in. No showers available within this park, only at the adjacent campground. Very convenient to the entire South Rim area with the shuttle buses. Elk and deer roam through in the evening. All the stores, restaurants and services you could want in the nearby Grand Canyon Village. All in all, just a real nice place.

This is an adequate park for an overnight stay on I-10 heading east/west through West Texas. The staff is friendly and helpful. The facility is older, though generally well maintained. The on-site restaurant is handy for meals while staying put after a long day's drive. They will even deliver to your site. The office is open late and closed in the middle of the day. In other words, it is set up for one night transit visitors. I have not stayed at any other RV parks in town, but this one certainly fits the bill.

We have stayed at this park before and reviewed it, but it is now reopened after a reconstruction following Ike. The park is very nice and, as before, in a good location on a beach but near Galveston proper. The price given reflects a full-hookup pull through with a one time $4 fee for 50 amp service. There is no shade or ground cover to speak of, so the stiff wind, courtesy of TS Lee, blew a lot of sand around. Things should be better once the area gets some rain and the grass has grown. The staff seems to have gotten its act together. I admit it was kind of rough back when I made my reservations right after it opened. The new layout is much less tight (though with less sites) than the original pre-Ike. The premium sites in front are now gone and the best sites are the pull throughs in the middle. I recommend the park.

This is a very nice KOA. We stayed here for one night while traveling along I-10, but the park and the location is very suitable for an extended stay. The young woman who checked us in and the man who escorted us to our site were both friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

This is a nice park with a friendly staff. You feel like you are "camping out" since you are in the juniper trees that populate the area, though you are not very far from Santa Fe. Though it is close to I-25, we did not hear road noise. We were led to our site, which was a good thing, since it was impossible to get into it due to position of trees and shrubbery. We were quickly assigned another less shaded site. I cannot speak to other alternative parks in the area, but this was a good place to stay a few days and explore Santa Fe and the surrounding area. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This is a very nice park. It sits on a hillside above US 70, but sites are level. We were led to our site and assisted with set up. The gentleman who did this gave us some good pointers on local sights and places to eat in the area. One complaint I do have is that the restrooms have a combination lock and I was not given the code in the space provided on the check in brochure. When this happens, the office is not open until 9 a.m. and you need to use the facilities earlier in the morning, this causes a problem. We would stay again, but keep in mind there are a wide range of choices (and a wide range of quality of parks) in the area.

This is a good RV park for an overnight stay when traveling east or west on I-10 in West Texas. While there are several other options in Van Horn, this appears to be one of the better ones and there are few other choices other than the Van Horn area in this region. The check in was friendly and efficient. The grounds are in good condition. There was a very strong wind when we arrived and it lasted all night, but that certainly not be blamed on the RV park. We had breakfast at the on-site cafe. That was very handy and the food was good. We would return if travel arrangements required another stay in the area.

We used this park as an overnight stop on I-45 on our way to a morning arrival in Dallas. We called ahead and the lady on the phone was very helpful. She gave us directions, which was a good thing since Google Maps has the location on the wrong side of town. A security code is required to enter the park. We arrived after dark and discovered with no moon: the site is pitch black. All the sites are back in with tight turns, so we had some difficulty getting into our site in the darkness. There were only 2 trailers in the park some distance away. We left early the next morning having not seen or talked to a soul. The site is OK and secure, but not suited for an overnight stay. It is probably good for an extended stay in the area, but arrive before sundown.

This is a very nice park. We used it for an overnight stop on our way through Kansas City. Having arrived after hours and wanting to leave before the office opened in the morning, we were checked in by 2 very courteous and resourceful security guards. You can tell everything here is well run and kept spic and span. As mentioned by others, most of the sites are pull through and very level, even though the park is on a hillside. I was not bothered by the traffic noise. The rate is on the pricey side, so some may not want to use it for just an overnight stay, buy I was grateful to have such nice, trouble-free facilities after a day of travel which included some hassles. We would stay again.

We used this park as an overnight stay on the way through Kansas. I feel a couple of the more recent reviews paint an uglier picture of the park than what I saw. The on-line reservation we made worked well. When we called to confirm it, we were greeted courteously. The site is gravel and, though I would not call the space as “roomy,” we got into it and out of it with no problem. It was level. There is some road and train noise, but it did not cause me a problem. I tend to expect it in a urban environment for a park conveniently located near major roads. We would stay here again if traveling through the area.

I will echo what most others have said, though I had no problem with the side-by-side pull throughs. We opened our slides and awning alongside a motorhome with no problem. Due to the diagonal sites your front and picnic area are offset from your neighbor. The park is clean and well run and the staff is courteous. The rows of sites are tiered up a hill, but each site is very level. We would return.
