Rusty's RV Ranch, Rodeo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate shown is for a month (4 weeks.) Electric is metered and is 14 cents per kwh. Regular rate is $26.40 per day. We were in Site #3 in the front of the park. Site was level and very long. Sites are in pairs, but the hookups are staggered so that your RV is not right next to your neighbor. All interior roads are dirt, and were a little bumpy because the area had more than normal rainfall and it was ongoing. They are wide, and navigation within the park is easy. Utilities worked well; we had two power bumps during the time we stayed there. Wifi is sporadic, and it does not seem to matter which part of the park you are in. There are trees in the park, and some ornamental shrubs, but there is no shade for RV sites. The park is a "dark skies" park; no outside lights and all RV shades/blinds must be down at dark. There are quite a few astronomy buffs who spend time in the park. There is a Friday evening social - the owners provide an entree, and residents of the park provide a side dish. Closest grocery store is Lordsburg, 45 miles away, and it is about 55 miles to a Walmart in Douglas AZ, so meal-planning is advised. The owners of this park work very hard to make sure each visitor's stay is a pleasant experience. There are a few long-term residents, but all sites are neatly kept. We will continue to stay here when we visit southern New Mexico. We camped at Rusty's RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Shakespeare Ghost Town outside Lordsburg is a must to learn about the history of the area. Lordsburg also has the Hidalgo County Museum. Bisbee AZ has Queen Mine (tours are given), and Tombstone, where you can see a reenactment of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Silver City has antique malls. We drove to Duncan AZ to Germaine's, a store/museum/collection housed in a large area with little organization, but it was fun to prowl through the "stuff." Douglas AZ has a golf course.

Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflect Good Sam discount. This is an older park that is well-maintained, and owners are on-site. We were in Site 48, and the tow car had to be unhooked and parked beside the motorhome. Interior roads and sites are gravel and in good condition when we were there. Site was level, and all utilities worked well. Wifi service is spotty. We did not use showers/restrooms. Parking to register is fine if you are the only unit; if several arrive at the same time, it gets really close. No cable TV unless you give a $100 deposit for a cable box; new cable company policy seems to be the issue. This park is next to a huge lot filled with what appears to be abandoned machinery, so the views are not great - not the fault of the owner. Road noise is minimal. We will use this park again. We camped at Trailer Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wichita Falls RV Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

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

This is an older park that is well maintained. Pull-through sites are narrow and long, and there is a grassy buffer area between sites. The utility hook-ups require that you pull through almost to the end of your site to connect. Interior roads are paved. All utilities worked well, and wi-fi was excellent. There is a huge dogwalk area complete with "fire hydrants." There are many long-term residents, but they are in a different part of the park from the short-term travelers. Traffic noise is minimal. Speed limits in the park are not closely monitored. For us, it is the best choice in the area, and we always choose this park when we visit Wichita Falls. We camped at Wichita Falls RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mesa Verde RV Park, Wolfforth, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We found out on our return trip that the park is also a Passport America park. Park is large, with many long-term residents. There are two areas set aside for short-term travelers. Sites at the front are fairly short; it is necessary to unhook if you are towing. Interior roads are fairly narrow - navigating can be quite close if vehicles are parked too close to the road. Sites in the back are new - spaces are plenty long, but there is no landscaping or picnic table. All utilities at our site worked well. Wifi was fair. The best part about this park is the office staff. They are friendly and very helpful. There is a great deal of construction in the Marsha Sharp Freeway area at this time, so getting around can be slow and challenging. This is a clean park that seems to be well-managed, and we will stay here again. We camped at Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mesa Verde RV Park, Wolfforth, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The sites in this park for short-term stays are wide, level, and gravel with a nice grass buffer between sites. They are long enough to park the tow car behind. We were in Site 12 at the front of the park, close to the highway. There is noise, so if you are a light sleeper, ask for a site elsewhere in the park. Park is very clean and all grass is neatly mowed and trimmed. The roads in the park are adequate, but not wide. Office staff was friendly. Everything worked well except the wifi, which was sporadic. We enjoy this park and will overlook the wifi and choose this park again. We camped at Mesa Verde RV Park in a Motorhome.

Western Star RV Ranch, Liberal, Kansas

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate shown is cash - credit card slightly higher. This is a fairly new park. The sites are all gravel, level, well-spaced and long enough to park the car behind. There is no grass where the sites are, but there are grassy areas around the perimeter. There are no trees for shade or to break the wind, and the wind does blow in western Kansas. Office is not open until about 5 p.m. - before then just choose a site and pay when the manager arrives. Utilities are conveniently placed and work well. Wifi is sometimes spotty. The park is right off Highway 54 and there is a train track nearby, so noise can be an issue. There are long-term units, but they are parked around the perimeter of the park and are neat. Did not use shower/restroom facilities. In my opinion, this is the best choice of parks in the area, and we will stay there again when visiting the area. We camped at Western Star RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

French Creek RV Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate shown is monthly plus electric. We have stayed at this park before, so we knew sites were very tight. It is a good idea to unhook the tow before pulling in. Sites are gravel, with a small grass buffer zone between sites. We chose a back-in, which was level and had a tree and picnic table at the back - the back-ins have a little more room than pull-throughs. Utilities worked well during our stay; however, the covered hole where the water connection was kept filling with water - there is apparently a leak somewhere underground, as it was not our hose. During the summer they have a Friday potluck, which gives travelers an opportunity to make new friends. There was one long-term unit there, but it was neatly kept. Wi-fi was good during our stay. Did not use bathroom/shower facilities, so can't comment on that. This is a no-frills, basic park that is convenient to everything in town, and the Mickelson Trail runs right past the park. The sites need some updating (like painting or replacing the picnic tables) - the owner of the park is not in residence. The manager is very friendly and she makes every effort to ensure a comfortable stay. We will always stay here when we visit the Black Hills. We camped at French Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Custer State Park is a jewel. $15 for a one-week pass. Lots of wildlife to see there. Mt. Rushmore is nearby, as is the Crazy Horse Memorial. Drive Iron Mountain and Needles Highways, and visit beautiful Sylvan Lake. You won't run out of things to do here.

Eagle's Rest RV Park & Camping, Chadron, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a basic, no frills park. Currently there are many long-term residents who work in the area. The camper chooses his own site. Sites are narrow, but wide enough for slides. There are many trees, so getting a satellite signal may be tricky. Our site was not level, and the ground was littered with cigarette butts. The sites are gravel, with sparse grass between sites. It looks like the original intent was for side-by-side hookups, but only one hookup is used. Most of the others had vehicles parked in them. Interior roads are fair. Utilities worked well, and wifi was satisfactory. The residents of the park are quiet, but there is a lot of highway truck noise toward the front of the park. This park is good for an overnight, but not really a destination park. We have stayed here before and will choose it again when in the area. We camped at Eagle's Rest RV Park & Camping in a Motorhome.

Area's Finest Country View Campground, Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a gem. The people in the office were friendly, and one even came to our site to show us how the cable worked - you are issued a remote at check-in to use on your TVs during your stay. Our site was almost level, and had nice shade at the back of the very long pull-through. The park just seems serene as you pull in. All grassy areas were mowed, and trees near sites were trimmed to avoid interference with slides/awnings. Sites in our area were wide, and there was a nice grass buffer between sites. There was a picnic table in very good condition. Park was very quiet during our stay, with the exception of park residents using the empty site next to us as an entrance/exit to an area of the park, rather than drive the road around to their site. Utilities worked well during our stay; however, wi-fi was sometimes iffy. We did not check out shower/bathroom facilities, so cannot comment on them. They do have a laundry and a book exchange. I would have rated 10 if the wifi had been more reliable and there was a "no driving through sites" rule. In spite of those issues, we loved this park and will choose it again. We camped at Area's Finest Country View Campground in a Motorhome.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is spacious, with wide roads and adequate space between sites. Our site was pretty level, and utilities worked well during our stay, except for a very brief period during a repair when electric and water were off - just a very few minutes in both cases. There are some trees in the park, but most sites have no shade. The site we were in had only a small amount of grass between sites, but we did not see any grass burrs in our area as mentioned in some other reviews. The park itself is quiet, but there is a large truck stop across the highway, so trucks can be heard at all hours - not a problem for us but others might find it annoying. Wifi worked well most of the time - somewhat slow in the evening when the park had many sites filled. We would stay here again. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

Seven Winds RV Park, Liberal, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

The site was adequate - wide enough for slides, but not level. Park is mostly gravel, but there are quite a few trees to shade some of the sites. Utilities worked well. What was frustrating was the fact that we made a reservation, but when we arrived, the office was locked and there was no information as to an assigned site # or sites from which to choose. In a busier time of year, we could have been out of luck for a site. The park has been improved (visually) from our last stay, but the customer service remains less than satisfactory. There are a lot of trains going by, not a problem for us, but possibly for others. We will probably not choose this park again. We camped at Seven Winds RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cactus RV Park, Tucumcari, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is easy in and easy exit. It is all gravel, and some of the sites have trees. At those sites, trees have been trimmed to avoid interference with slides and awnings. We did have an escort to our site, which was one with shade. The site was long enough to park the car behind the motor home. The utilities worked well for the duration of our stay. We were only able to get wifi service from about 3 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. each day - not sure of the cause. There is noise from the road in front, but with windows closed and air conditioning on, it was not an issue for us. The park itself is very quiet at night. It is a basic, no frills park, which is exactly what we wanted. We enjoyed our stay here and will choose this park again when in the area. We camped at Cactus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel, Bernardo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

We came to stay a week at this park and stayed two. Check-in is quick and easy (no debit or credit cards accepted - cash or check only) and we had an escort to our site. Sites are wide with trees and shrubs on either side - shade and privacy. Lots of room for slides and awnings. The roads in the park are wide and the sites are at the correct angle for easy parking and exiting. All utilities worked well during our stay. Wi-fi was spotty at times - otherwise this park would rate a 10. It is fairly close to I-25, but we found the noise to be minimal in our Row 1 site. This is a very quiet park with little traffic, and drivers do obey the speed limit here. There are many extended-stay sites in the park, but sites are neat and tidy. The owners are in residence, and pride of ownership shows. They host occasional pot-luck dinners - the one we attended was lively and there was a lot of good food. We really enjoyed our stay here and will always choose this park when visiting this area of New Mexico. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Las Cruces KOA, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a well-managed park. We had a premium pull-through site, which was long enough for the car to be parked behind the motorhome. Sites and roads are gravel, with concrete strips in the premium pull-through sites section. We were lucky enough to have a tree beside us, which gave some break from the afternoon sun. Sites are pretty level, and are wide enough for slides. I think the tree would prevent full extension of the awning. There are no picnic tables at the sites in this area of the park. The interior roads are wide enough to allow easy maneuvering. All utilities worked well during our stay, as did wi-fi. I really appreciate the fact that the staff leaves an empty space between units until the park fills up. We have not noticed much noise here during our one-week stay. We have stayed at this park several times, and will always choose it when visiting Las Cruces. We camped at Las Cruces KOA in a Motorhome.

Rusty's RV Ranch, Rodeo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate shown is for a month's stay. This is our third visit to this park. The owners are in residence, and pride of ownership shows. They work very hard to make their guests feel at home. Sites are very large and in pairs, but the hookups are staggered so that you are not close to your neighbor. Roads and sites are dirt - it is the desert, after all. There are many ornamental trees on the property, but there is no shade. There is a swim/spa available for use. The owners host a social on Friday evening - they provide an entree and visitors provide side dishes and desserts. It is a good opportunity to meet other travelers. Shades in your RV must be closed in the evening and outside lights are not allowed - the area attracts a lot of visitors who are interested in astronomy. These rules allow for magnificent views of the night sky. It is about 50 miles to a large grocery, so meal planning is advised. This is a perfect place for solitude. The only problem is the wi-fi, which was not very reliable during our stay. The owners are working to find a solution to the problem, and expect to have improvements shortly. We love this park and will always choose to stay here when we visit southern New Mexico. We camped at Rusty's RV Ranch in a Motorhome.
