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

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $21.00
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.

Raton KOA, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $37.00
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.

Heron Lake State Park, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

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

The sites are huge and well layed out. Some have quite a bit more privacy than others. The biggest rigs in the world would have no problem navigating the Blanco loop.

Verizon signal was patchy. We had a perfectly usable 4G at our site 45, but there were a lot of other sites with no signal at all, as we discovered on our walks.

There are a couple sites with sewer available on the other loop but they have less privacy.

We were a little disappointed that most of the sites offer no real view other than the pines, juniper and sage in this flat area. A few had some view of distant mountains and mesas. You wouldn't even know the lake was there if you didn't hike the short trail.

Nearest grocery store is in Chama, which is about a 45 minute round trip.

We did drive over to El Vado State Park and will definitely stay there next time. All of the sites at El Vado are right on the lake (some just feet from the dropoff down to the lake) with GORGEOUS views. The warning signs about trailer size on the road to El Vado are not applicable if you're going to the state park when coming from Hwy 84/Tierra Amarilla, which is the main route. It IS a problem if you try to come "the back way" along 112 from the southwest. Coming the back way is not something someone would normally do as it's a minimally maintained dirt road, but it's reasonable to assume that someone blindly following GPS might try that route and get themselves in trouble. We camped at Heron Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Fe Nat'l Forest / Jemez Falls Campground, La Cueva, New Mexico

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

This is a big-rig-friendly campground. Plenty of spots for our 32' triple-slideout travel trailer. The area is fairly heavily forested so solar power requires a lot of moving the panels throughout the day.
My only complaints are lack of threaded water spigots and no dump station. You'll need to fill up your tank before arrival. But there is water available for filling jugs, etc. Trash dumpsters are severely spilling over for some reason but otherwise it's clean and well maintained.
The sites are well laid out and for the most part are nicely spread out from one another. Sunday through Wednesday there's been no sound other than birds, thunder, and the breeze.
Some sites have a weak but usable Verizon 3G signal, others have a good 4G signal. Fellow campers with AT&T have no signal. Two years ago we had no T-Mobile signal (can't speak for present day but it's likely the same).
There is one special spot that has sewer, electric, and water. It appears to be a secondary host spot, but is currently not used by a host and is available if you're the lucky contestant. We camped at Santa Fe Nat'l Forest / Jemez Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cochiti Lake COE , Pena Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

There are many sites here with amazing, beautiful views not only of the lake, but also of the surrounding mesas and mountains. It was completely quiet during our Sunday-Friday stay near the end of the season. The restrooms were clean, but I wasn't a fan of the shower - the water was reasonably warm, but the shower head added so much air to the spray that it was more like having a cold, windy mist blown on you. The airflow from the head even caused the shower curtain to swing way out. At least there was an overhead heat lamp in the changing area. I actually stepped out of the shower to warm up under it a couple times. Otherwise this is a great place to camp.
Another reviewer commented on noise from pumps (just north of the Buffalo Grove bathrooms). I actually thought it was insects the first couple nights, so it's not an offensive sound at all. You'll only hear when it outdoors on a calm night.
There is a very strong Verizon 4G signal here.
Note the Buffalo Grove loop has 50-amp and water at each site. This loop has the best views if you want electric. The Juniper loop has electric but the water spigots are not site-specific and can be up to 100 ft from a site. Elk Run and Ringtail Cat have no electricity. Ringtail Cat sites are the closest to the lake. We camped at Cochiti Lake COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is a big RV park. It's far enough off the interstate that you can't hear any road noise. The pull-thru sites are very long and spacious. It's super easy to navigate a big rig through this park. Lots of huge, nice rigs here. Our 32' travel trailer looked small in relation to everything else. :) The dog run is large but the entrance gate area was very muddy during our stay. We enjoyed the use of the large hot tub one cool evening. There were some areas of the roads in the park in need of repair, but the problems were avoidable while towing. The wifi was essentially useless but our Verizon signal was strong. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
