This is a very well maintained campground, with friendly staff at check in. Road is sand and gravel and could be dusty when it's dry. Our spacious level and pull through pad was also sand and gravel. Big rig access was good. Very quiet and private with plenty of space around our RV, space for our towed too. Lots of mature shade trees, and plenty of grass between each site. Our site had a pergola with a lovely paved patio, a picnic table, wooden table and wooden lawn chairs, and a smoker/grill. The landscaping is very pretty and really compliments the river. There is also a small pool. Bathrooms were old but clean, as was the laundry but it did have 4 washers and 4 dryers. There is a security gate 24/7. A fenced pet area is provided as well as doggie bags. WiFi and cell were good. There are a couple of small food stores in Junction as well as two great barbecue places to try. This campground is very convenient to the I-10, easy on and off, and we would stay here again.

What a gem! This is a very well maintained campground, with a friendly and helpful owner to check us in. The road was gravel. Our gravel pad was a very spacious, and level pull through, plenty of space for our towed, and we also had a picnic table. Big rig access might be a little tight for anything bigger than our forty footer, so best to unhook before you enter the gate. The campground is set on eight manicured acres, colorful rose bushes and shrubs are everywhere, as well as plenty of bird boxes and hummingbird feeders. Shade trees with benches are scattered around the site. Lots of grass to walk your pet on as well as doggie bags. Very quiet and tranquil. We had superb views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The rec. room was well stocked with books and dvd's; and the bathroom and laundry were spotless. WiFi was good but cell was spotty. It's about 13 miles into Ruidoso, so plenty of food shops, restaurants and sightseeing. The owners have worked very hard to make this a wonderful "Senior Community" campground, and pride of ownership shows. We would stay here again.

This campground is a typical x-KOA, with narrow dusty dirt roads and cramped dirt pads. Our pull through site was fairly level and there was space to park our towed. Sites were side to side and big rig access was fair. There was some grass between sites and a picnic table. The bathrooms were very old with badly stained sinks and needed a good clean. The laundry was old but fairly clean. The pool was filthy as was the pool area and needed a good clean. WiFi was worse than useless but cell was okay. Santa Rosa is a sad little town, so many shops closed or for lease, it's seen better days. There really is nothing around here to see or do. We ate at the campground restaurant, nothing fancy but it was good after a long day on the road. This campground is in desperate need of renovation, it all looked so neglected. This is not a destination resort, but adequate for a one night stopover, drive in no need to unhook, no need to cook, and easy in and out from 1-40 and it was quiet.

This is a fairly well maintained campground with helpful and friendly staff at check in. All the roads and pads are gravel. Our site was a long and level pull through with plenty of space to park our towed. Big rig access was good. Very quiet, plenty of shade trees, grass between each site with a picnic table and fire ring.The park is surrounded by beautiful mountain views, unfortunately very few of the sites take advantage of this. Long term residents occupy a significant portion of the park and generally these sites were kept tidy. The northerly portion of the park is devoted to RV storage which would look much better if it were screened from the RV sites. The bathrooms were old but clean and the laundry was small but adequate however 2 washers and I dryer were out of order while we were there. Pet friendly with doggie bags and disposal station. WiFi and cell were adequate. Satellite in the premium pull throughs presented somewhat of a challenge. Small local food stores and restaurants are close by with plenty of sightseeing. We would stay here again, it's not a destination resort but fine for a few days, however, we did think it was expensive, but this seemed to be the going rate for the area.

What a gem! This is a very well maintained State Park. Staff were very helpful and friendly at check in. The road around the campground was paved. Our paved site was a very spacious and level pull through and big rig access was good. Very quiet with plenty of privacy and space around our RV, space for our towed too. Shade trees, plenty of grass, concrete patio with barbecue, fire pit and picnic table. There were wonderful views from inside and outside our RV of the surrounding mountains, and the deer wandering through the park was an extra treat. The bathrooms were spotless as was the laundry which had 3 washers and 3 dryers. Pet friendly with doggie bags, but dogs must be on a leash. AT & T data was spotty. Ridgway is 8 miles away and has a small grocery store, and of course the wonderful True Grit Cafe. Montrose is about 17 miles from the park with plenty of big food stores, Walmart etc, as well as lots of places to eat. Sightseeing was fantastic, so much to see and explore. We would stay here again.

This is a very well maintained campground, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. The road and sites are gravel, no grass at all. Our site was a long pull through with side to side hook ups which required some leveling, and we were very close to our neighbor. Big rig access was good. It was very quiet, not a lot of privacy, but there was space for our towed. The landscaping was very pretty and we had a picnic table at our site. There was a small pool. The campground had wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, however we never got to enjoy them, we were shoehorned into a small space on the campground facing a view of a tree, while the rest of the campground with the wonderful views remained fairly empty. It made no sense to us or the other campers who were there that night. Bathrooms were old but clean, and the laundry was well equipped, clean and open 24/7. There is a nature walk, a pet walk with doggie bags and a 3 acre dog park. WiFi was good. There is a large Safeway in Cortez as well as plenty of restaurants and sightseeing in the area. However, we would probably not stay here again, it's a typical KOA and very overpriced and there are better campgrounds in the area.

This is a well maintained campground with helpful staff at check in. We were in loop C which had a paved road and concrete pads. Our site was a spacious and level pull through, big rig access was good. Quiet with plenty of space around the RV and space to park our towed, lots of space between sites. Set in a desert landscaping with views of the lake, we had a gravel patio with a picnic table, fire ring, barbecue and some welcome shade trees. The bathrooms were clean, the laundry however was dirty and needed a good clean, only 6 washers and 6 dryers and two of the dryers were broken, for the size of this campground that is just not enough, the laundry is heavily used on a 24/7 basis and is looking well worn and tired. Pet friendly. WiFi is marginal and cell is just okay. There is a Walmart and Safeway as well as fast food chains in Page, along with plenty of sightseeing. We would stay here again.

This is a well maintained adult-oriented park, staff were friendly and helpful at check in. Roads and pads are gravel, our level pull through site was spacious and big rig access was good. Quiet with plenty of space around our RV to park our towed. There was a split rail fence in between each site with shrubs and trees for privacy, and the huge cottonwoods were wonderful for shade. A small picnic table was also on site. A few long term residents, but they kept their sites neat and tidy and were very friendly. The laundry was clean and well equipped. The bathrooms were spotless. Pet friendly with a pet walk area and a pet play area, but they do enforce the pick up after your pets rule. WiFi and cell were good. There was a pretty walking trail all along the creek. You will find food stores in Cottonwood about 15 miles down the road and plenty of sightseeing all around this area. We would stay here again.

This is a very well maintained RV Resort, that is open year round, staff were friendly and helpful at check in. The roads are paved and wide. All sites are 40' x 80' so very spacious. Our pad was a level gravel pull through, big rig access was good. Very quiet with privacy and space around our RV, plenty of room for our towed too. Lovely desert landscaping, concrete pad with patio table but no barbecue. Very pretty views over to the mountains. An enclosed heated pool and spa as well as a large rec. hall with kitchen are available. Very pet friendly with a doggie park that has doggie bags and a disposal station. There is a lovely walking path all around the Resort, perfect for walking your pet and once again doggie bags and disposal stations are located along the trail. The laundry was clean and has plenty of washers and dryers, but could do with updating. The Bathrooms in the rec. hall area are clean and modern. WiFi and Cell were good. Propane is available. There are no food shops or restaurants close by, so come well stocked with food. Tombstone is about 10 miles away and Sierra Vista about 19 miles but it does have a Safeway. This Resort is a great deal for the price they charge, and we would certainly stay here again. Price reflects Passport America.

When we visited six years ago this campground and its grounds were immaculate, sadly this place is now looking a little neglected. It's fairly well maintained, and staff are still helpful at check in. Roads are paved as was our site, not overly spacious but it was level and a pull through and we parked our towed behind our RV, big rig access was good. There were few folk there, so it was very quiet with plenty of privacy. A few trees and some patchy grass, no barbecue and no picnic table, although some sites did have a picnic table. The pool was lovely and the desert setting very pretty and we had wonderful views of the mountains from our RV. The laundry was clean with plenty of washers and dryers, but at $2 a load it was expensive. Never once during our 4 day stay were the bathrooms checked or cleaned, a very bad oversight! Pet friendly but no dog walk, doggie bags or disposal station. A small general store with deli is just up the road which was handy but very expensive. No WiFi but cell was okay. Plenty of wonderful sightseeing in the area, but good places to eat are few and far between. We would stay here again, while not perfect it's the best choice for the area.

Our rate reflects Passport America.  This is a well maintained campground in a very quiet desert setting. The lady at check-in was friendly and helpful. Entry is paved but the interior roads and sites are gravel. Our site was a spacious and level pull through; big rig access was good. Plenty of space for our towed, so no need to unhook for a one night stopover. There was a wonderful view of the mountains, but our motorhome faced the wrong way, such a shame!  Bathrooms were a lovely southwest style but the tiny laundry was old, dirty and needed a major makeover, only 3 machines and one was broken. Pet friendly. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are a couple of local food stores and restaurants in town and the historic Gage Hotel is well worth a visit. We would stay here again, it's not a destination resort but perfect for a one night stopover.

This is a well maintained campground with friendly and helpful staff at check-in. Road and pads were gravel. We had a spacious and level pull-through, big rig access was good. Easy on and off 1-10, and Pilot is just on the corner. Plenty of space for our towed, so no need to unhook just for a one night stopover. There were a few shade trees and some grass, which had the usual Texas stickers in them. The bathrooms were old but clean, however the ladies did have a large ugly hole in the ceiling! The laundry was small but adequate. Pet friendly with a dog run, but no pick up bags. Wi-Fi was slow but cell was okay. There is a small KOA Kafe on site. They serve breakfast and dinner, nothing fancy, but very welcome after a long day on the road. We would stay here again. This campground was surprisingly quiet, and we appreciated the host allocating sites intelligently and not putting everyone together in one small space.

This is a well maintained campground, staff were friendly and helpful at check-in. Roads and sites are gravel, so a little dusty. We had a spacious and level pull-through site and big rig access was good. Very quiet, some privacy and plenty of space for our towed. We had a concrete patio however no picnic table or barbecue, and it would have been nice to have had a covered picnic table in the New Mexico heat. There was little landscaping, a few shrubs were dead, and it certainly needed some shade trees, and there were a lot of permanent residents. The laundry and bathrooms were clean but the laundry was much too small for the size of the campground. Pet friendly with pick up bags and disposal station, but we never did find the dog park.  Wi-Fi and cell were good. There is a Walmart in Truth and Consequences and a few places to eat. The park has a good view of the mountains to the west. Unfortunately, most of the pull-through sites face east so if you have a motorhome you end up with a view of the cell phone tower, a JCB, and a tractor trailer. RV park designers really need to pay more attention to maximizing the natural beauty of their surroundings. The mountains and lake are lovely, just wish we could have seen them! The park is expensive for what it is although it seems to be the going rate for the area. There are better parks nearby so would probably not stay here again, perhaps over night, but that's it!

This is a well maintained campground in a high desert setting, owners were very friendly and helpful at check in. Roads and pads are hard packed gravel which helps to minimize the dust. We had a spacious pull through and big rig access was good. Very quiet with plenty of space for our towed, and wonderful views of the mountains, if you are in a motor home choose a site that is facing north to get this view. The bathrooms and laundry although small were spotless. There was a security gate 24/7 which was very reassuring. Very pet friendly with a lovely trail to walk your pet. WiFi and cell were good. Only 6 miles into Taos, which has great restaurants, plenty of sightseeing and Walmart's. We would stay here again.

What a gem of a state park located high on a hillside overlooking Colorado Springs with the Cheyenne Mountains behind, so there are gorgeous views from every site. This is a very well maintained campground with helpful and friendly park rangers. Roads are asphalt. Our concrete pad was a long level and wide pull-through. Big rig access was good. Very quiet with lots of privacy, space for our towed, some sites had shade trees ours did not. Wooden steps up to a very pretty gravel area with a picnic table and grill. Bathrooms were spotless, and the laundry was large, clean and well equipped with washers, dryers, iron and ironing board. Not overly pet friendly. Yes, there are pick up bags, but dogs are not allowed on trails, and have to be walked in the roadway, so it would be great to have a dog walk area in the Park. No Wi-Fi but cell was good. Walmart and Safeway are just down the road, along with good restaurants and plenty of sightseeing. This is a very popular park and takes some time and patience to get a site here, but it's well worth it. We would stay here again, the scenery is breathtaking and the city lights at night are very pretty.
