This is a wonderful National Forest Campground in a little valley deep in the mountains. The campsites are level and well kept up. There is 50 amp electric service, but no water or sewer hookups. Some campsites are in the open, and in these satellite TV is available. There is a nice fireplace and picnic table at each site. There is fishing in the two lakes in the campground, as well as swimming in one of the lakes. The campground is a few miles from any sizable town, so be sure to take enough groceries to last during your stay.

This is an excellent campground, and there were quite a few sites that will accommodate big rigs. We had no problem finding a spot for out 40-foot motor home. One can not reserve specific sites, so if you make reservations, tell them you have a big rig, so they will assign the appropriate site for you. The campsites are heavily wooded, so in most cases satellite TV is not an option. All sites have water and 30 amp electric, with no sewer hookup. This is probably one of the most pleasant campgrounds I have been in.

This is a pleasant park, with level sites. There is a creek running nearby, which is said to contain trout. The sites are easy to get into and out of. There is a cable connection that works well. This park is about a 30 min drive from the west entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park.

Date of Stay:

This is an OK park for one or two nights, provided Passport America discount is available. Airplane noise is the big negative, although did not seem to be as bad as a couple of years. There are paved sites with utilities conveniently located. We will stay here again, if PP discount is available. This is a good place to stay, if going to Mayo Clinic.

This is a good place to stay for an overnight off I-26. Friendly staff, nice rural location in the trees. We did have to use leveling blocks to level, and trees prevented satellite TV. We would stay in this pleasant campground again.

This is a pleasant park, with a rural atmosphere; it is within a convenient distance from I-95, but has a minimal amount of highway noise. This is a very good place to stay if you wish to commute for appointment to Mayo Clinic -about 50 min by auto. The sites are level, easily accessible and well-spaced between sites. Satellite TV may not be available in all sites, but cable TV is provided. We will stay here again.

This a rural park, located about half way between Atlanta and Birmingham. this is a good place to stay for a night or two, when on the road. The park is in a beautiful area. The sites are level. The hook-ups all work. While everything worked well, the park in general has a run-down appearance. As stated in other reviews, it seems the owner does not have the ability to keep the park in tip-top condition. Still this is a pleasant place to stay. We have been here before, and certainly would stop here again, when on our way to Florida, after visiting Tiffin Motor Homes in Red Bay, AL.

This park is a bit off the main highway, and to get there one has to go down fairly narrow streets through a neighborhood. The park itself is part of a complex, that was once a motel, but has been converted into residents for people over 50. The sites were quite difficult to get into with our 40 foot motorhome. These are older sites with antiquated hookups (water next to sewer outlet, for example). Trees prevented access to satellite TV. There are only 30 amp hookups. The rate of $17.40 is the Passport America rate. Given the inconvenient distance from the highway, the difficulty getting into the site, and the the generally unsatisfactory nature of the site, we would definitely not stay here again.

This park is a way off the highway on a road going off the highway several miles north of Truth or Consequences, and north of Elephant Butte. The road is paved, but there is a short dirt road leading to the RV Park, going about 1/8 of a mile that is rough. Probably due to recent flood damage and is not adequately repaired yet. The sites were very difficult for us to navigate to get our 40-foot RV and toad into. The water hookup worked, but was inconveniently located, and it took some work to keep water hookup from leaking. This is a site in the desert, but has trees in it, making the setting quite beautiful and striking. We would not stay here again just for an over-night --- too far off the road, and to hard to navigate to get parked. On the other hand, this is a beautiful place to go for a few days R&R. Nice setting and is a pretty place to be.

This is a pleasant park, with friendly management. The pull-through sites are reasonably level with conveniently located hook-ups. The sites are gravel, and the RVs are spaced a reasonable distance apart, but not with enough space to deserve a higher rating. This is a nice park, located in the country on the South side of Santa Fe, and close enough for an easy 20-30 min drive to town to see the sights. We would stay here again, but we do think it is bit pricey.

Date of Stay:

A good place to stay overnight or even for a day or two. The rate is the PP rate. Hookups are easy to get to, and all work OK. These are pull through sites, so no need to unhook. Each site is attractively landscaped. We would certainly stay here again when crossing Texas --- good price, easy-in easy-out.

This is a good park with all the basic needs for a successful camping stay. The sites are level, all the hookups are functional, and there is a picnic table on each site. Satellite access for TV works well. The view of the surrounding and sheer mountain is terrific. On the negative side, the park is really a large gravel parking lot, and the park itself is not particularly attractive, even though the surrounding view is. We would stay here again, as this is a good jump-off point for all the surrounding activities in Ouray and nearby Silverton. I definitely would rather stay in Ouray than drive my RV up the narrow, winding road to Silverton.

A very pleasant campground out in the country. There is a fishing stream near by with catch and release trout fishing, but we can't comment on the fishing, as we do not fish. The drive-through site was level and all the hook-ups work well. The campground is about 6 miles from Antonito, where there is one end of the Chalma narrow gauge railroad. The rate above is that of PP America. We will try to come back again for an extended stay to explore the area, and get in a little hiking and 4-wheeling.

First, the rate of $39/ night was one negotiated for a large rally of four-wheelers. This is one of the nicest RV parks in which I have ever stayed. The sites are owned by folks who stay here at times, but rent the sites out, when they are not there. The sites are paved, and quite spacious. They are pleasantly landscaped. The hookups are convenient and modern. We were unable to use the cable and were told it was because of our older TV. We used satellite and were happy with that.

Date of Stay:

This is a terrific park,with level concrete pad and modern full hookups. The park is near the highway,but highway noise is not a problem. There are fishing lakes and walking trails. The beautiful Colorado National Monument is within a convenient driving distance.
