Nice clean park with the exception of a couple of sites with long-term residents that looked a little trashy (one in particular was a total mess). Most sites in the middle of the park were level - sites along the fence line were not. It is in the city and in close proximity to the old town area and within walking distance of a grocery store. We were in space 7 and had several people walk through our camp site on multiple occasions in order to get to the dumpster (no fault of the camp hosts obviously). We had to keep the shades down so as not to have people look directly in at us as they walked by (easy enough for them to have walked around, but some people just don't get it). We parked our towed vehicle in front. If we do return to Silver City it is very likely we would not stay here again.

Excellent AZ State campground that is very well maintained and family friendly. The Park Rangers and Park Hosts were extremely professional and helpful. We stayed on Mallard Loop and with the exception of only one group of campers everybody else was quiet, friendly, and respectful. Super Wal-Mart is only 5 miles away (be careful of the traffic cameras). Be prepared for serious down shifting and 25mph cutbacks if you are traveling through Globe to Show Low (we came back through Phoenix in order to avoid this route). This was our first visit to this park and we are already planning our next visit.

Enjoyable, friendly, and welcoming staff. Nice level grass pads with full hook-ups. The first time through we stayed on the side closest to I-10. Big mistake! The vehicle traffic, specifically the big rigs, make a lot of noise and will make it very hard to sleep. Stayed on the other side when we came back through - quite a few full time residents on this side, but pleasant enough. Great access to the Colorado River if you are a water sports fanatic. 2-hours of free Wi-Fi access then you have to pay.
