The rate cited reflects a monthly rate including electricity and all taxes. They were able to accommodate our 43 foot rig though there only a few sites that can handle this length and also only about 7-8 50 amp sites. However, the weather is so cool at this altitude (10,000 ft) that we would probably have been fine with a 30 amp site since one so rarely needs air conditioning at all. Scenery is fantastic and access to the many wonders of the area is very convenient. The owner and staff are super-helpful and friendly. This is really a campground, not an RV "resort." Think of it as a cross between a Forest Service campground and an RV park and you'll get the picture. We would have gladly stayed the entire summer, but alas, my wife had problems with the altitude and we had to leave early. This is not uncommon in Leadville, especially if you're a senior. Nevertheless, we would stay here again in an instant if we could and we highly recommend it.

This small family-run park is a fine place to stay while exploring Taos and its environs. The owners can tell you all you want to know about Taos and sights to see. There are only 19 RV sites, two or three of which appear to have long-term residents. There are four sheltered tent sites with tables. Park is entirely gravel and sites are level with picnic tables. Plenty of room for dogs and hiking in the high desert. The small laundry is a bargain at $1 per wash and 1$ per dry. WiFi works well and Verizon 4G is also good. Most afternoons are windy so watch your awning. We would stay here again for a few days.

Rate reflects monthly rate and includes electricity. They generate their own electricity via the on-site solar panels. All utilities were fine. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time, though occasionally it was not available. Verizon 4G connection was good. It's windy every afternoon with 30-35 mph gusts common, so awnings are not of much use. There are no on-site activities, so this cannot be considered a destination park. However, it is an excellent base for exploring the many attractions in the Santa Fe area.

This is a well run and well maintained park in Ruidoso Downs. The rate given is based on a monthly rate not including electricity. The owners live on the premises and insure the park functions smoothly. Interior roads are paved but sites are all gravel. Since we were staying a month, they placed us on a huge pull through spot at the back of the park that gave us privacy and also minimized what little road noise there was in the park. We will surely stay here again when we're in the area.

This park is conveniently located right in Las Cruces and the price was right for an overnight stay. Hookups were fine and most sites had at least some shade. However, the park is entirely gravel and very dusty. Even at the posted speed limit of 5 MPH, every vehicle raises a dust cloud behind it. If you're picky about keeping your rig clean, this is probably not the place for you.

This was a good park for an overnight or a day or two, but it's primarily a mobile home park, not an RV park. They have a few sites that can handle big rigs, but it was a very tight squeeze for our 43-ft MH. Park was clean and all hookups were fine. It's very conveniently located in the town of Safford, but signage for the park entry is easy to miss. Slow down as you approach and be prepared for a narrow entry.

The correct name of this park is Wolf Creek Run Motorcoach Resort. The rate reflects a weekly rate, including taxes, at a non-riverfront site. Riverfront sites are $10/day more. As others have said, what's not to like about this park. Beautiful sites with a cabana-style storage building on each site and a carefully tended lush lawn. Kids are welcome but there are no facilities (pool, playground, etc.) for them other than the San Juan river which is eminently wadeable. Plenty to do however, in Pagosa Springs. At first blush, we thought the rate was high, but after spending a week there, we think it's worth it. The owners offer a hefty daily continental breakfast with a special Sunday sausage, spam and pancake breakfast; social hours three days a week; potluck dinner with excellent entertainment once a week: all at no additional cost. The clubhouse is beautiful, overlooking the San Juan river. There are no add-on costs to the daily rate when you stay here. The ambience of this place is congenial, relaxed and friendly. Though the cost is higher than we generally pay, we were not disappointed and we're glad we splurged. We'll be back.

The rate given includes taxes. There are thirteen FHU 50 amp sites, eleven FHU 30 amp sites, ten 30 amp water/electric sites and two cabins in this wonderful little park. Scenery is awesome, the place is very quiet and there are lots of outdoor activities available nearby. The owners keep the park in near-perfect condition. As fulltimers, we see a lot of parks but we have never been as relaxed as we were here. I wouldn't call the park "family friendly" because there is no playground, pool, etc. but children are welcome. We definitely plan to stay here again.

As others have said, you're packed in pretty tight here, but we managed OK with our 43-foot rig. The roads are bumpy and uneven so you must move at a crawl through the park. It's expensive but we were here was to attend a family wedding in Denver and there's not a whole lot to choose from in the Denver area. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area, but this is not a destination park for us.

This campground is sort of a cross between a dude ranch and an RV park. There are lots of great activities for families: horseback riding, chuck wagon dinners and breakfasts, petting farm, fishing, etc. The park caters to horse owners and there are many sites with corrals for campers who bring their horses and ride the many trails. The park is bounded by the North Fork of the Colorado River and Rocky Mtn Natl Park. You can rent ATV's, go hiking into the Park, see moose: all without leaving the park. Sites with sewer are limited to about 5 or 6 near the front of the park and 30 or so in the back of the park in a meadow. The meadow sites were not attractive to us and we were lucky enough to stay up front. There's no mowing of grass so the sites tend to be overgrown. They were also uneven and tough to get level in our big rig. The roads are dirt and not well maintained; lots of pot holes and rough spots. Nevertheless, Winding River is well-managed, full of friendly staff and located in a beautiful spot. We stayed here in our big rig and would stay again. One note: If you forward mail to this resort, you must use General Delivery in Grand Lake as the Postmaster there will return mail addressed to individuals at Winding River Resort.

Great place to stop for a day or a few. Officially, there is a three day limit. Cost is free but they ask for a donation, however the donation box was missing when we were here. Only 4 sites have 50 amp power; the rest are 30 amp. There is a small tenting area as well. No water hookups but there is a water station available to fill your tank. Dump station is also available. We stayed here in a big rig and would stop again.

This park is in a quiet, country location but just 10 minutes from Sturgis. You can hike up into the Black Hills right out of the park and you're close to many Black Hills activities. The front section of the park has 63 RV sites about half of which are side-by-side. This is not too bad because the way the hookups are set up, it's only about the back half of your rig that's beside another. The sites are level but quite bumpy and uneven. There are also 16 cabins of varying size in the front portion of the park. There's a short drive to the back section of the park with another 30 or so FHU, RV sites, including some "luxury" sites that have concrete patios complete with gas grill, patio furniture and individual hot tubs. There are also numerous tent sites available. We stayed here in a big rig and would stay here again.

This park is in the process of changing ownership. The new owners are a young couple with several children who live on site. I don't think they have much experience with RV's or parks, but if they work at it, there's a lot they could do with this campground. There are only three 50 amp sites here. Of the approximately 50 sites, 15 or so are tent sites and another dozen are electric/water only. FHU sites are gravel and not too level; we could not get our 43-ft rig completely level and had a 3-foot leap down from our steps. That said, this is a nice park and might be better if the new owners work at it. It's in a lovely setting, convenient to many Black Hills attractions, has free Wi-Fi, clean restrooms and showers and a small but reasonably priced laundry. Verizon wireless worked well here. I think the $40 daily rate (plus taxes) is high and they don't offer a discounted weekly rate. Apparently other campers feel the same way because there were only four RV's here during July 4th week and two of those were long term. We might stay here again if rates were lower.

When we first pulled up, we weren't impressed and weren't sure we could get our 43' motorhome in any of the sites. Then we noticed the park was on both sides of the street and the other side had ample room for us. The sites are a little close together, but nice, with gravel pull through, grass, concrete patio and picnic table, some with small pavilions. Nice little city park across the street. We would stay here again.

This is a small new campground located on the premises of Americas Mailbox, the mail forwarding service for RVers. It is brand new so there's little grass and it's rather plain. It's intended as a service to customers of Americas Mailbox, but anyone can stay there. The rate is the member rate. Cable service is installed but was not operating while we were there. Sites are gravel and level. They are rather close to each other and in one row, RVs are parked rear to rear. Wi-Fi service was good. The location is near a truck stop and the interstate but noise level was low. It's convenient to Rapid City and not far from Mount Rushmore and other attractions. We would stay here again for a short stay when passing through. We would probably give it a higher rating when the landscaping is completed.
