Stagecoach Stop RV Resort, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We're two weeks into a month stay here (just started full-timing! - we lived for 11 years in a house across the field and my parents would stay here when visiting). We are very pleased with this park. This time of year, almost everyone is long-term, but it's a quiet, friendly bunch. Most we've talked to are here for medical procedures. There are beautiful views of the Sandia mountains. The park is set far back from the highway, so the noise level is low. The owner and crew are super friendly and their dedication to the park is reflected in the good upkeep. Bathrooms are squeaky clean. The hot tub is inside a small building and usable all year. There's also an outdoor pool (but too cold now). Clubhouse has more amenities than most. Spacing between sites is good. Sites are level - paved with gravel in between. A few premium sites have artificial grass. The dog park is a good size and has been split into two. Walmart, groceries, etc are nearby. Wifi is slow at times of the day, but that's to be expected. We mostly just rely on our Verizon. Cable TV is good. We paid $650 for a month, all utilities included (otherwise $39.50 is the daily rate for just about every discount club there is). This is one of the best park experiences we've had and will always stay here when we're in the area. We camped at Stagecoach Stop RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Santa Ana Casino is just around the corner. Check out the Coronado Historical Site just east of the casino on NM 550. There are ruins of structures from Coronado's expedition. Great hikes are 10 minutes away in the foothills on the other side of the interstate in Placitas. For good dining, check out The Freight House (great tap beer selection) and The Range in Bernalillo. Grab a breakfast burrito at Blake's Lotaburger (a New Mexico favorite).

Pine Bluff Regional Park, Saracen Trace RV Park, Pine Bluff, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed this park. We got one of the breathtaking sites along the Arkansas river. The sites are surprisingly far apart and spacious. It was very quite other than some odd, periodic industrial bangs and booms coming from somewhere off in the distance. We were told at check-in that we can dump gray water on the ground (no need for us since it was one night). I want to say the monthly rate was $320, so this would be a good place for someone looking to hide for a while. There were a few dumpy long-termers there, but the park still has a nice feel due to the spacing. Sites are 30-amp with water and the dump station is right in the middle of the park (convenient for totes). We had a good Verizon signal and would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Pine Bluff Regional Park, Saracen Trace RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Buckhorn Creek COE, Jefferson, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I was a little taken aback by the $32 cost - I'm used to low twenties for COE sites - but I did wind up in a lakefront site, which are the most expensive. I arrived on a Tuesday in early Nov without a reservation and was extremely surprised to find I was somewhat lucky to get in without a reservation. It's a beautiful campground and the smell of the trees is amazing. The very friendly hostess that checked me in at the gate did a drive-by shortly thereafter to make sure everything was good with my site. The end loop just past our site (E117) we used to turn around when leaving was pretty tight with our 31' travel trailer due to a tree branch. We had a good Verizon signal here. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Wichita Bend RV Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

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

This is a no-frills city park right next to the interstate. There are both back-in and pull-through sites, but the layout of the pull-throughs is a bit odd. We experienced no power problems in our site. We were confused by only some sites having water, but then realized later the intended water hookups are underground for each site. There are a lot of stickers from weeds in the grass, so be careful with pets. There is a very large park across a suspension bridge. It did feel a little sketchy, but it is well-lit at night and we didn't experience any problems. You'll definitely want to run your a/c fan at night to drown out the interstate. Overall we're satisfied with it as an overnight stop while on the road. We camped at Wichita Bend RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Coyote Keeth's RV Park, Clayton, New Mexico

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

As others stated, this is a clean but simple RV park with a unique layout of pull-thrus (check out the satellite view). All sites are full-hookup 30/50 amp and you pay either $35 for 30-amp or $40 for 50-amp. We paid for 50 amps, but after we set up we realized it was so cool from the storms that we wouldn't even be running our air conditioners. When the owner showed up to check payments (it's honor system), my wife popped out to say hi and she mentioned our situation. The owner was very friendly and kindly volunteered to return us $5 to drop it to the 30-amp rate. I rated is a 9 because of the lack of picnic tables and because the price is a bit on the high side for what's offered. My only other complaint is our sewer dump extended out of the ground and was barely lower than our trailer. From a glance around, ours seemed to be the worst off (site 15 at the far right). But it's a nice place otherwise. We had a full-strength Verizon signal. There must be a tower nearby. From talking to the owner, the story behind the park is it used to be a mobile home park, so he's using the septic system from that. Otherwise he laid all the electrical himself and redid the layout and laser-leveled each site. He has planted a lot of trees that will provided a wind break in the future. We camped at Coyote Keeth's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cottonwood Point COE, Marion, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

What a pleasant find! We stayed here twice during the week in August and practically had the place to ourselves. Based on the reservation markers, it does look like it fills up on weekends, though. There are several different sections. We were backed right up to the lake in sites 89 and 90. The sites in this loop are large and spacious with trees. This chunk has water and 50 amps. Another section is water and 30 amp, and another is 50 amps with full hookups. We have a good Verizon signal here. We camped at Cottonwood Point COE in a Travel Trailer.

4 Aces RV Park, Kinsley, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very pleasant park. As others say, the owner is extremely friendly. It's far enough off the highway to be quiet, and there's a very large grassy area with a pavilion and games like horseshoes. There is also an honor-system DVD library with a very large selection of popular movies. We will definitely stay here any time we're passing through. There is a good Verizon signal. Our price of $27 included tax. Note that you cannot pay with a credit card, just cash or check. We camped at 4 Aces RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clayton Lake State Park, Clayton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We've got mixed feelings about Clayton Lake. It's a beautiful spot, but there are a lot of caveats. 1) There is no dump station here. The nearest is at the Love's in Clayton. 2) There is effectively no usable Verizon signal here. Even with a booster, we could barely eek out a sliver of data every now and then. 3) Voltage problems. When I plugged in, it was reading 128V. We lost power numerous times throughout the night due to our power monitor shutting down due to an over-voltage. It shuts off at 130V. The highest I saw was 132V. Use power here without protection at your own risk! We enjoyed the short walk to the dinosaur tracks in the spillway. They were pretty neat. Overall it's a beautiful, quiet location, but you need to know what you're getting into if you come here. The showers were acceptable but a little on the icky side. One had really low pressure and the other was like a fire hose. Our cost of $14 is with electrical hookups. It's $10 without.I would say E7 is the best of the electrical sites. It backs up to the lake and has only one neighbor on one side. Ample room for a 32ft travel trailer and disconnected truck. We camped at Clayton Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Isleta Lakes & RV Park, Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

I'm not sure what everyone else is complaining about. We thought this park was a bargain at $23/night. The lakes are a beautiful place to stroll around, and, typical for New Mexico, there are no bugs. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We appreciated having the 24/7 manned gate at the entrance. Wifi worked well and we were able to stream video other than Friday night when the place filled up. Our only two complaints are the sewers are oddly placed at the rear of the sites (had to use an extension hose), and it is right on the train tracks. We only noticed the early morning and evening Rail Runner (commuter train) and one or two freight trains per day. They just blow their horn and get it over with - nothing drawn out. By the second night, we slept through everything with the bedroom AC fan running. Verizon works just fine here. We camped at Isleta Lakes & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Kartchner Caverns State Park, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed our stay at this park and were treated to a white Christmas. I'm giving it a 9 because some of the sites do have a front-to-back slope problem. We were in site 1 with a 32ft travel trailer, and the front hitch had to be lowered to about 10" above the ground to be level. I can see this being a problem in motorhomes. Site 1 also has several cabins that kind of ruin the view on the passenger side. The other oddity was that the back-in sites had fire pits but the pull-thrus did not.

The hosts and grounds crew were friendly and busy little bees.

We had a good Verizon signal. TV, however, consisted of a few Spanish-speaking channels and one analog NBC station.

The caverns themselves were interesting in their uniqueness, but not as impressive as others we've seen. I do definitely recommend doing a tour, though.

Propane and the Walmart in Benson are only about 20 minutes away. We camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Rosa Lake State Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

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

This is a clean and quiet park, but as is typical of NM state parks, the layout and sites are a bit outdated. It took us a solid hour to get our triple-slideout 32ft travel trailer backed into A5 with leveling blocks because of the tree, rear charcoal grill, and wooden sideposts to maintain a dinette view of something other than the tree while having enough width for our opposing slideouts. One slideout is 1 inch from a side pole and the other is slightly touching the juniper on the other side.

Many sites are on the short side and many have front-to-back slope issues for longer trailers.

The host was very kind and helpful and I always saw him out picking up dog poop from empty sites. Verizon signal varies from site to site. In A5 we had a somewhat useable 3G signal which was a good 4G signal on our booster.

Sites A2, A4, A5, and A7 in the Rocky Point Electric loop have 50 amps, the rest in the loop have 30. The sites tending towards the southeastern half of the loop have water, the others do not, though there is a pullover in the loop to fill your tank. Only a few sites in this loop have a lake view. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Richey Cove Park, Council Grove, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful, clean campground with a swimming beach. Some sites have 50 amp, most have 30 amp. Friendly gate attendant called us before our arrival to let us know she had to leave at a certain time due to an emergency. We had a good Verizon signal here. The campground layout was fairly confusing to us at first - it could use some signage for directing you to sites. Most sites are right on the lake. We were surprised by the absence of bugs during our August stay. We camped at Richey Cove Park in a Travel Trailer.

Glen Elder State Park, Glen Elder, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

The sites at the south end of the Kanza loop are mostly covered by trees and fairly spacious with flat concrete pads. Those at the north end are more utilitarian, crammed next to each other on a gravel lot.

We very much enjoyed our stay here, but be warned there can be a LOT of bugs here in August. We had a swarm of hundreds clinging to our slideouts and I had to have my wife continually swat them away while I pulled in the slideouts on our departure morning. And no matter how fast you come in and out at night, expect your ceiling to have several dozen tiny new visitors each time you open the door.

We had a good Verizon signal here and the campground's wifi worked well. It was very quiet during our midweek stay. Kanza site 34 has a great lake view if you have a passenger-side dinette. It looks like the ocean due to the flat terrain. We camped at Glen Elder State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area, Ellis, Kansas

Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park on the lake and only about 10 minutes south of I-70. The Overland loop has a large central grassy area with a small playground. All sites have some view of the lake. The wifi signal was strong but the system made us re-login every several minutes which made it effectively unusable. Otherwise we had a good 4G Verizon signal. This is a good park for a leisurely bicycle ride and for children. We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Driving lanes are huge and easy to navigate with a big rig. Wifi was extremely flaky and thus unusable. There were a lot of streetlights in the campground which I suppose is for security, but it made it difficult to sleep without hanging towels over all the bedroom windows and shutting interior doors. I would only stay here for an overnighter (which is what we did). We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.
