Storrie Lake State Park, Las Vegas, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is our 6th NM State Park. I know it is the off season but if you are going to keep the park open you should have people there to keep an eye on things and keep it clean. I saw 2 park employys in the week we stayed and no one was there over the weekend when it is busy. Dogs running loose trash every where. There are 2 areas with electric sites are up close to the road but the noise let's up at night. The area to the north has only vault toilets and they were NOT clean. There is open camping along the shore but only 2 port-a- potties and they were filthy. The road to the shore is rough dirt. The park closes a sun down so if you go out to dinner time it to be back before dark or you will have to walk in and leave your car in the outside parking lot. If it rains expect lots of mud. We camped at Storrie Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Santa Rosa Lake State Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We bought the year pass for NM State parks so the value is outstanding. However each state park seems to be run differently. Santa Rosa could be a great place to camp except for the lack of care by the park employees. Contrary to other posts, we found the reservation system to be pretty up front. Loop A is the electric loop. These sites are smaller in general and not as level as Loop B. The restroom/showers are between the two loops. We were there 3 days before they were cleaned and that was because I mentioned it to the host. Garbage was full and not picked up after a busy weekend and the animals were getting into it. I watched an employee try to mow the grass even though it didn't need it instead of cleaning the restrooms that did need it. Poor management. The host was friendly and helpful. There is another small CG across the dam but it is very unlevel and not suited for big rigs. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

El Vado Lake State Park, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

The CG is 15 miles from hwy 84 and the road is a little rough and narrow for our 40' MH bit worth the ride. Very few trees but that added to the beautiful sunsets and gorgeous night skies. With solar and clear accessable sunlight we didn't need electricity but is available and reliable. Sites in the no-hookup sites are large and well distanced from each other but some of those with power are close together. The lake level is extremely low and not usable but still pretty to look at. All sites have a shelter over the table and it was appreciated with temps in the 90s. We camped at El Vado Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Heron Lake State Park, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $4.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second NM State Park we have stayed in since getting our NM Pass. The sites are very roomy with table and fire ring at each, although with the fire conditions there were no open fires allowed. Lake levels are low but at Heron it is still usable. Power is strong but only 30 amp. Verizon is poor bit usable. Our only complaint is the host. In 20 yes of FT RVing he was the rudest person we have come across. We camped at Heron Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

McPhee/House Creek , Dolores, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second review I have made on this park but things have changed or should I say deteriorated. Don't get me wrong, I love House Creek because of it's remoteness and quiet atmosphere. There are around 50 sites and a couple of group loops but when we were there even over the 4th there were very few campers. There has been no maintenance done in the 4 years since our last visit. The roads have cracked and in some places broken up. The electricity is only 30 amp and even with the sites not even half full it would go off if you tried to use the AC. And you pay $8 per night for it! The boat ramp which is the reason most people come there was only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there are tire spikes to keep people out of the ramp area at night and week days. The forest service road leading to the CG is breaking and sliding down the bank so you have to drive around on the wrong side of the road. The dump fee is now $15 even if you paid the $32 per night fee. We camped at McPhee/House Creek in a Motorhome.

Kaibab Paiute Band Tribal Campground, Kaibab, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Newly renovated. Large sites, all pull through. Hardly ever anyone there to check you in so you have to drive back to the convenience store. Very clean restrooms, laundry and TV room. Not too busy ever. NO phone service or TV signal but good free WIFI. Walking distance to Pipe Springs NM. Could use a few more trees.

LoW-Hi RV Ranch, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a week. The CG is very neat and clean. The roads and sites are gravel in fact a very sharp large gravel that you could not walk on in your bare feet and in fact injured our dogs paws. Sites we're big enough for our rig and car. Lots of permanent people who sometimes make the overnighters feel unwelcome. No tables or fire rings. The WIFI was unusable in the back row where we were. There was a nice but small dog park decided for large and small, bit the permenant people ruled it. Verizon was strong. Deming was 5 miles up the road and had everything we could need. We camped at LoW-Hi RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Haystack Reservoir Campground (East Shore) USFS, Culver, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed during the eclipse and it was very busy! The hosts we're excellent and worked hard not only to get as many campers into the campground but keep it clean and orderly. The lake is lovely to look at but was a quite green with algae and we worried for our dog. The campground is on a hill so some of the sites are not level but sites 14, 17, 18 and 22 were quite level and plenty long enough for our 40' MH and car. The only water is in a pull through area and easy for big rigs to get into. The bathrooms are vualts and are kept clean and we'll supplied but still smell like vualts. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back. We camped at Haystack Reservoir Campground (East Shore) USFS in a Motorhome.

Sportsman's Club Campground, Joshua Tree, California

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

Very close to Joshua Tree NP so if you are too big or the park is full it is a good place to try. Only 30 amp sites so double AC is out if it gets hot, and it can get HOT in the summer. Weekly rate is $30 per night. Restrooms were old but clean. Almost no antenna reception. Good Verizon. WIFI was OK. All sand. No tables but a few portable firepits avaiable.Finding someone to check you in is a problem so you should call first. It is mostly for group camping but they do take drive-ins. We camped at Sportsman's Club Campground in a Motorhome.

Villanueva State Park, Villanueva, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Previous reviews are right about this CG being a lovely little spot for peace and quiet with the only sound is the Pecos River running though it. The restroom were clean and well taken care of. The roads in the park are paved but the sites are not. This CG is on their reservation system and I would recommend reserving and paying the extra fee because in the off season there is no one around to take care of the on site system and all the electric sites, whether reserved or not say they are reserved, so all that you can camp at are the non electric site, and there is no cell service to call anyone either. We came in from Hwy 40 and "what a ride" for the last few miles, down a narrow switchback cliff and then back up thru the little town with narrow sharp turns. I would recommend you come in from the north to avoid the cliff, but it is still a narrow and windy road. The dump station was easy to get into but make sure you are disconnected because the turnaround at the end in very tight. The upper loop which was closed when we were there but it is on such a steep road going up and down 1 way that I would not want to take our big rig up there, but the sites, once you get there are big and fairly level with a spectacular view of the valley. Make sure you bring all the supplies you need because the closest town is an hour and half on those windy roads and hwy 25 all the way to Santa Fe. We camped at Villanueva State Park in a Motorhome.

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Spencer, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Very highly used park. The roads to the park from the north is very narrow and windy as are the interior roads but if you come in from Hwy 111 (which is the way we went out) it is a lot easier. What ever you do do not try to enter from Pikeville because of a very steep switchback road. The sites are in very tight loops and most are not level with lots of trees and not very accommodating for large rigs like our 40' MH. The restrooms were very clean and modern. Cell service was good and we were able to get a few "over the air" tv stations. They have two dump stations. One was not accessible at all by rigs our size and the other one was only one way and there was no easy turn around. There was a NO BURN in effect while we were there and multiple forest fires in the area. The closest grocery store (except for gas station) was a good 30 miles on very windy roads. It is a lovely park but knowing how hard it is to access I don't know if we would come back. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Greenbelt Park, Greenbelt, Maryland

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Top-A-Rise Campground, Falconer, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

The new owners are now in their 3rd summer. The intent is to get as many perm people as possible and they are succeeding. Everything is nice and neat and even their WIFI is OK. The sites are grass and with a large rig it is sometimes hard to keep from sinking but we did OK. The shower house is clean as are the restrooms in the upper half but they are nothing but an outhouse that has had plumbing put in them. No sinks just 2 stalls. The owners are very nice but some of the perms seem to have taken charge of the CG and yell at you if you go over the 5 MH speed limit by even a mile per hr. You certainly don't get much for your money here especially with no sewer hook-up but that seems common in the east. The dump station is indeed right along the road and you block traffic when using it. It is very quiet and peaceful there though. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely and quiet CG run by the town but right in the middle of the Apostle Island NP. We were able to get Verizon service with our antenna. The campground is a favorite for locals so it can get busy at times. The showers were questionable but the restrooms were fair and provided by NPS although the visitor center was closed after Labor Day and we had to go over to the town of Bayfield to the wonderful visitor center which was in and old, but beautiful school.

Fall Lake Campground USFS, Ely, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very busy NF CG. The sites are typical NF so they are mostly not level and pretty tight for our 40' MH. Lots of trees and low branches. But for all the negatives it is a wonderful place to spend some time. The CG is right on Fall Lake with more than abundant kayaking and trails. If you don't have a kayak there are hundreds for rent in town. Nice boat launch. We were amazed to get really good Verizon 4G service. The only draw back for any 14 day stay was no dump (all the way back in the town of Ely for $5) and only one water faucet for fill ups at the registration office. We would go back there in a minute. But reservations are a must during the busy season unless you are small and can fit into the few first-come-first-serve sites. We camped at Fall Lake Campground USFS in a Motorhome.
