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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

One of the best things about this park is the huge check-in area - no having to squeeze in behind/beside another rig to check in. It is located in the desert, so everything is gravel. Sites are long and level. Interior roads are wide, so it is easy in and easy out of the assigned site. There is some highway noise, but within the park the residents were quiet during our stay. All utilities worked well, as did wi-fi. We did not check out bathroom/shower facilities, so cannot comment on that. The location is convenient to town and many points of interest in the area. The office staff was very helpful by providing lots of information about local attractions. We liked this park, and will choose it again when we visit the area.

Rate reflects a weekly rate with Good Sam discount. Our pull-through site was in the newly expanded section of the park. All gravel, with a small concrete/gravel buffer between sites. Some sites have small picnic tables. There was room to park the car sideways behind the motor home. Neighbors are close, but sites are staggered slightly so that there is some privacy. There is not much lighting at night. All utilities worked well; however, wi-fi was sometimes spotty. This park is clean and the roads are wide, gravel, and well kept. There is plenty of space to maneuver. Owners take pride in this park. One pull-through section has trees, and it appears that they are well-trimmed so they won't interfere with slides or awnings. There are quite a few extended-stay campers, but the ones we saw were neatly kept. We arrived at check-in just behind another traveler, and parking was tight - the highway is right in front of the park, and there is no place to stop and wait, we just had to squeeze in beside the other rig. We have stayed at this park several times before, and the owners continue to improve the property. We will always choose this park when in the area.

Rate shown is regular rate, but Passport America members can receive a discount for one night - does not apply to weekend nights. Space in this park is tight, but the layout for short-term travelers makes for easy access in and out. There was space to park the car behind the motor home but it was close. There is a small buffer area between the pull-through sites. There are many extended-stay units in the park, but the ones we saw were well kept. All utilities and wi-fi worked well. Considering the park was nearly full, it was fairly quiet at night. Did not check shower/restroom area. We enjoyed our stay and would choose this park again.

Rate reflects a weekly rate. We are in Site 46, which is almost level. Sites are narrow but very long. There is plenty of room for slides and awnings, and there is a nice picnic table at each site. Utilities have worked well during our stay. Wi-fi is good even though we are near the end of the park. Office staff and maintenance personnel are very friendly and helpful. Sites are easy in and easy out. Interior roads are paved. There are many extended-stay campers here, but the sites we have seen are neatly kept. There are many Canadian Geese, squirrels and birds in this park. We have stayed here many times, and will always choose it when in the Wichita Falls area.
