Having never been to Silver City, NM, we decided to stay at Rose Valley RV Park for a few nights. The park is on the older side with gravel roads and very nice spaces. We arrived after hours and a note was taped to the office door with our name and assigned site. Our site was very spacious and had an enclosed area on the correct side. We had no table or fire ring. We had a large ant hill under our rig and when I brought it to the attention of the office, the park manager was tending to it before I could get back to the RV. The park is very quiet with several "live ins" throughout the park. Just so you know, the neighbor of this park is the local cemetery. We were parked away from the cemetery and it really wasn't an issue. Not much to do in Silver City but this is a very nice park to get is some serious relaxing! We camped at Rose Valley RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.
We went to "Historic" downtown Silver City and were not impressed. The marketing person for Silver City is a genius...made it sound a lot better than it was. The bowling alley is very close to the park. I bowled a couple of games and the management was very friendly and nice.

We stayed at the Petaluma KOA for 10 nights to be able to tour the areas around the park. We were placed in space 249 which has Kamp Kabins on two sides. These cabins were continually filled with loud, rude people who have no clue what "campground ediquet" is. Twice, I had to walk down to the office to find the security after 11:30pm to have them come and tell the partiers to quiet down. These rude people left trash around like they were home and made the whole experience poor. Not to mention the bicycles, scooters and other toys used by the kids to entertain the parents all day long. Good park if you're not into peace and quiet and like kids running around all day; otherwise look somewhere else. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Ancient Redwoods RV Park is fairly new: three years old. The park is the quietest we've stayed in and the owners are great people. The sites are large and accommodate big rigs with ease. The park is still under construction so right now, there are no showers. The laundry facility is small but very clean. Wildlife still transit through the park and Avenue of the Giants is easily accessible. Go in late July and early August for wild blackberries: they're all over the place. If you want a quiet, reasonable, clean park with great owners, go to Ancient Redwoods. We'll be back again!!! We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
