This park is everything the other reviews have said. The roads and sites are gravel with grass and dirt. There are some flat sites but we used 4.5" of wood plus full extension of our air bags. They have 50 amp for $39/ night but we had the 30 amp. with water and sewer at the sites. The park is pretty quiet with about half the spaces taken by long term residents. We were here in 2013 and the bathroom/showers were clean but showed their age. Since then they have retiled the bathroom but the showers are still a bit old but functional. They have great pressure and all the hot water you can use in the showers. When the hot water heater kicks in it sounds like a couple of souped up Harley's idling out side the door. This is the rv park that will probably have room when the other one is full. They do have a pool but it has not been filled yet and I'm told that it is open during the summer. We will probably stay here again when we are in the area.

The Basics: Roads and Sites are Gravel and can get dusty. Showers are excellent, private unisex bathrooms and showers. Sun shelter and picnic tables with grill and fire ring. The scenery around the campground is excellent. Lots of tent and dry camping sites. 20/30/50 amp with water at sites and dump station available. Verizon phone and MiFi work pretty well. The RV sites with power and water are huge and can accommodate the largest rigs and toads and there are a few pull throughs. All and all a most excellent campground. Good clean power with all the power sites full at 90 degrees with rigs running their AC and no power fluctuations. Except... The only sites that are close to flat are the handicap sites (several are available). If you come here plan on using all the play in your rig's leveling system plus some additional blocks. There was a 10.5" difference measured at the center line of my RR tire and the center line of my LF tire. I used 4.5" of lift on my LF tire, 1.5" on my LR tire, 3" on my Rf tire, and none on my RR tire before my air bags would level the coach. Sites are designed so all the hook ups are on the wrong side if you back in. Once you do manage to get your rig level or close enough you will find this an excellent CG with great facilities in a magnificent area. If you are a Nevada resident there are some discounts available. The pricing for the CG is $20 + and additional $10 if you have a site with power; this includes your daily entrance fee. Dump station just out side the CG. If you leave the site to explore the park you MUST leave something in your site to indicate that it's occupied. There was no host available on site. If we're in the area we sill camp here again. This is all first come first served so plan accordingly.

We stayed here in a Passport America rate in 2014. Passport America is not taken here now. The nightly rate is $31 but they take FMCA, Good Same, and AAA for a 10% discount. They have better rate for Escapees but I don't know what that is. Since 2014 we have stayed here twice about 2 weeks apart. This park is located outside of the Phoenix metroplex and is relatively quiet with distant highway noise from I-10. The roads are paved and sites gravel and the sites are not right on top of one another. The park is clean with no trash and only neatly organized clutter for those who spend the winter here. There is not much in the way of stores here but a quick trip about 20 miles east will get you to most of what you need. This place was originally built to house the workers who built Palo Verde Nuclear power plant which opened in 1988. They have expanded the RV park to the north since then. This is what I call a 6' park. Everything looks great from 6' away but the closer you look you can see the signs that it's been around for well over 30 years. Since we've were here in 2014 a chicken egg operation has opened up less than a mile to the west. When the wind is coming from the west you become well aware of it and it's not pleasant. They have wifi for a fee and they do not have cable TV for the short term guests. We will probably stay here again if we head down toward Ajo or we want to miss rush hours when we drive through Phoenix.

We were here in 2014 at the same time of year. This Park has become much more popular. There was still plenty of room in the CG but it seemed more sites were filled. One of the reasons this place as become more crowded is they got a new superintendent who has opened up the whole Park. Most of it was closed in early 2014. Note on the rate it was on the Federal Geezer card. The solar showers were not ice cold. They had good pressure and felt great after a day out tromping around in the desert. These CG were built in 1938 and they were built with foresight. We were in one of the shorter sites and you could fit a 45' coach and a normal size Toad without any problem. The only issue I had was with the slope of the site. We have a 36' coach and height difference was 7.5" between center of front and rear axles and 2' from the front step to the ground. We have an air bag suspension and it maxed out but did level. I ended up putting 3" of lift under the front tires to make life easier. The generator hours are 8-10 am and 4-6 pm. Unless the temps are in the 90's and they will let you run them during the day also. They have water and dump site (2) and the water doesn't taste too bad, better than some we have had in Ajo. They don't have a fire ring but do have a bbq grill. The staff is friendly and the place is spotless. We'll be back.

Alright folks, if you are coming here in an R.V. for a short stay you can't beat it. It has no picnic table, no fires, no club house, and some views; it is an urban R.V. park. You probably aren't planning on spending a lot of time in your rv. You've come here for some specific reason and not to go Glamping. With that mindset this place is excellent. The sites level up very easily. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and are cleaned daily. The showers were fully heated and had plenty of hot water. All the folks I met were extremely friendly and helpful. The staff was on the ball and very pleasant. As previously mentioned the short term sites are on the bay side of the park and ours had a great view of the bay and the surrounding mountains. We did not try the park wifi but my Verizion Mifi worked great. Getting in and out of the sites was a dream and there was plenty of room for coach and the the toad. The utilities provided clean 50 amp power, and simple sewer hook up. ( if you find it draining your tank a bit slow loosen the cap on top of the island). There's cable hook up but we spent so little time in the coach we didn't hook up to it. We paid a bit less than $73 for a 7 day stay. The daily rate is $85. The front part of the park is for long term residents and the sites are clean and not cluttered with all the units I observed in very good condition. We will stay here next time we come to the Bay area.

The site is mud and grass on gravel (it has been raining a lot lately. They do have 2 50 amp sites in the full hook ups section. The site took 4.5" of lift under my front end plus the full lift of the air bags to level up. The road are grass/mud on gravel. The view from the back row looking out at the ocean was fantastic. The bathrooms were spotless and the showers stalls are kind of small but they have good pressure and plenty of hot water. The previous post mentioned that they were fixing up the place but I saw no indications that were doing anything except maintaining the park. We'd stay here again.

We've been full timing for 7 years now. The place wins the award for the biggest dump we've stayed at. The site was paved but very narrow. It had been raining a lot so our coach was in a lake due to poor or nonexistent drainage and we were in a huge mud hole. The rest rooms were disgusting at best and the showers have a patina of crud every where you looked and were barely warm. There are a lot of full time folks with rigs covered with tarps and garbage everywhere. They have wifi but we could get nothing from their site. Verizion and MIFI works down there. Traffic nose from 101 is pretty loud but the traffic is only moderate. We may stay here again because it's the closest place to some friends we like to visit. Even if they dropped the price down to $5/night I wouldn't recommend it. They have a dump station that had the lid open and 6" of rain water standing in the containment basin. I really surprised that the health department hasn't shut this place down.

This is the second time we stayed here and also the 2nd Thanksgiving. The price of $28 is a great deal during events or the summer. Not so much in November. The sites are grass over gravel and when it rains hard several lakes develop and the mud gets a little slick but the gravel prevents you from sinking in. The bathrooms and showers are very clean and entry is controlled with a locking device. It's only .5 mile into old town. Verizion MiFi worked fine. They have WIFI here but we could never get it to work, we were at the far end of the lot. Very nice pastoral views with barns, green grass, cows, etc. The place was very quiet during the evening but our site backs up to the race track, ball diamond, and grandstands for the fair grounds. I imagine it gets pretty loud during events. Not well defined spaces.

This is the second time we've stayed here. They now have 50 amp service. We found the bathrooms clean, with good hot water and pressure. This is the off season and the place was mostly empty with a few long term residents and 2-3 late travelers who leave in the morning. Part of the off season is that it's also the rainy season so the ground was very soft for the first inch or so but it's gravel underneath. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We'd stay here again. It is a very good value for the price. The site we stayed at had an uninterrupted view of the river and there was a nice deck with a fire pit right on the river.

The actual rate was $20.36 winter rates. The reservation system is off line during the winter except for cabins. This is another you pay for what you get park. The bathrooms and showers were clean. However the showers have some supply issues. I checked 2 different shower rooms and the both had the same problem. Each shower room has 2 showers. One shower has pretty good pressure and the push button stays on about 40 seconds. The other shower has dribble and you have to push the button about every 15 seconds. Most of the loops are in trees with marginal drainage (it rained a lot) with paved pads and some are pretty flat others not so much. Loop D is the loop of choice. It is out of the trees and most of the sites are out in the open the down side is they are not very private. The roads are rough pavement. Verizion MiFi worked fine. Be sure and lock up you cars, RV's doors and compartments. There were at least 3 thefts out of vehicles that were left open when we stayed there. If we're back in the area we'd probably stay here again, reluctantly.

When you're traveling across the Great Basin you find yourselves surrounded by miles and miles of miles and miles. There's not a lot out there. So when you come across an rv park you have to look at it in context. This park has everything you need to spend a comfortable night or several. They have good clean 20/30/50 amp power, water, and sewer. In addition they have great 360 degree views. The staff at the gas station where you check in is cheerful and helpful. They only have one shower/bathroom for the facility. The fixtures are a bit eclectic but they all function as designed and were clean. The shower has great pressure and plenty of hot water. They have a book exchange in the store and a fair to good breakfast burrito. On the downside there's hwy noise from US 95 but the traffic is not all that heavy. Our Verizon mifi worked great with 4G service. The roads and sites are gravel and pretty level and are all pull thru and all the sites have shade trees. If you're looking for luxury keep driving. If you're happy with the basic services a rv park is supposed to provide this is the place. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The phone is (775) 272-7151.

Mountain View RV Park

Wellington, Utah

Date of Stay:

As mentioned this is very basic park. 30 amp only, level site (#1), sewer hook ups too far back, next to a motel. The down sides: 3 5000 watt halogen security lights plus assorted street lights make it had to realize the sun has gone down. There is a lot of steady traffic noise from the Hyw. The showers dressing area looked like someone washed off an ATV after a muddy day (they were clean when I first checked them out and were clean the next day) The up side: The showers had good pressure and hot water. The restaurant next to the park had a great breakfast. It's the closest rv park if you're interested in going to see the petroglyphs up 9 Mile Canyon (90+ mile round trip) Given the choices in the area I'd probably stay here again if I had too. All in all I'd say you get what you pay for.

If you're in the Farmington NM area and wondering if there will be any place that will have room for you and your RV, McGee Park will probably be able to get you in. They have 576 sites with power and water and an additional 200 sites for dry camping. We spent 6 days here and loved it. We had a site down by the river. In fact we had about 2.5 sites because they told us that the view would be nicer if we just parked sideways to the lines they had drawn to mark the sites. The power boxes are different in that they either have a 30 amp and 20 amp hookup or a 50 amp and 20 amp hookup. I didn't find any 30/50 plugs in the same box. The 50 amp sites are scattered around the complex just look for the box with a 240 volt sticker they are generally near the power pole and meter panels. If there's nothing going on at the fairgrounds they leave 2 handicap bathrooms open for showers. If something is going on they have large shower rooms to handle the dirty masses. If you get there during business hours you can pay with a credit card, cash, or check in the office. If you are there on weekends or after hours you can pay with cash or check. There is a small fee for using credit cards that the county charges to recoup cost. There's not much in the way of shade at the sites no fire rings and few picnic tables. Most of the sites are paved but the ones in Area 5 down near the river are gravel with gravel roads. We had problems with mosquitoes in the early evening and I imaging during the summer it could get bad. If you are here when they are near capacity the sites will be pretty close together. They had a dog show, horse races, and a carnival going on when we were there on a weekend and there was no crowding issues. As mentioned in previous post they have onsite security that patrols at night, a sheriffs substation and a fire station on the same property. We'd stay here again in a heart beat.

The actual cost is $10.70. However it is located close to I-40 and a truck stop. Lots of road noise and lights. The shower is across the street in the truck stop and you have to get a voucher to go to the shower. They were clean and came with a bath towel, face towel, and wash cloth. You probably wouldn't want to walk in and get the key in your bathrobe. That's pretty much the down side. The place is clean but they need a trash can or two more. Close to the Acoma Pueblo and some pretty scenery. We'd stay here again. They have pretty good WiFi and the Verizion MiFi works fine too.

Red Rock Park

First, how to pay for a site here. If you go to the office inside the museum Mon-Fri. 8-4 you can pay with cash, check, or credit card and get a key to the bathrooms/ showers. After hours or weekends: a employee will come around during the evening and you can pay them with cash or check, I don't think they have the bathroom keys. Second, picking a site. They have 2 main areas for camping. (Area 1) One is in area that has trees scattered about that offer some shade. (Area 2) The other one is a large parking lot without a lick of shade. Area 2 looks like it gets used for big events like rodeos and is mainly overflow. Area 1 is close to an immense wall of Red Sandstone and has some shade. The thing about Area 1 is the sites are not well defined so campers tend to park their rv's any way they want, which leads to a lot of confusion as to where exactly the sites are. The sites are not all that level but should be in the range of most leveling systems. If you get a key to the bathrooms you will find them clean and have showers with good pressure and plenty of hot water. The area is pretty quiet but you can hear the trains running up and down the main line of the BNSF all day and night long. On the plus side, they are not blowing their horns. There are a couple of nice hikes up in the red rock canyons behind the campground that are way beyond well marked and while not impossible to get lost, you'd have to work at it. Verizion MiFi works great. We spent several days here and will stop by again if in the area.
