Date of Stay:

Only A and B loop open before Memorial Dayish. Sites level, but cramped. Loop A no services, vault toilets. B loop has electric hookups. Some larger sites. We enjoyed being here, very quiet.

Date of Stay:

Despite the negatives we loved being here. The positives are that the campground is near the heart of Golden and only 20 minutes from the centre of Denver. Lots of pleasant shading. Golden is a lovely town with lots happening along the creek front, right outside the campground. Walking distance (10 mins) to historic center. Negatives, sites are very cramped, good job the neighbours are friendly as in many cases you shake their hand out of your window. Way too popular, difficulty getting a site, so book ahead.

Date of Stay:

Overpriced, now all sites have been sub let and Tiger Run admin merely resells vacant lots. Dog Dirt all over our site, had to call and wait for someone to come and clear it up. Probably not enough room to get awning and slide out. They know they are the only option for 20 miles in the winter time.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here when many other campgrounds were closed. Simple back in sites with water and electric. Set at the back of the fairground and recreation park. Flat (apart from site No1) gravel. Very easy going staff, you could camp even if the office was closed (post money, or wait till office opened. We used it to enable easy access to Durango - it is not a resort campground. It is on the trolley route about 1 mile from the twon center.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to the site. No sewer, but good dump station. Level sites, very quiet when we were there, with several pleasant river or lakeside hookups, which took you away from the activity on the fairground Staff very pleasant, 24 hr security. Nicest place we found to stay in Farmington, not likely to get booked out, with over 500 hookups. We would definitely stay here again. We did not use the shower/toilet, but overall the center and offices were kept clean.

Date of Stay:

Still $14 with Texas State Park Pass (saving $5 per person daily entry fee). We found reservation is a bit more complex than usual. You may need to phone central reservation, rather than book online. (It kept saying no sites available for us!) If you want to take a walk over the park you must order a permit, again through Central Reservation. (But a different number: the group camping reservation number.) $5, but free with Texas State Parks Pass. Or, wait until after 10:30 a.m. on the day, for any spare permits. Guided walk is excellent. No support for self guided tour. Limited, but reasonable wheelchair access on walks. Surprisingly, we found cell and broadband access.

Date of Stay:

This was Good Sam Rate. Historic site on route 66: worth the stay to see the 50's cars/trailers and memorabilia in the office. Not a lot of space between units, but easy access. The location of the site maybe inaccurate on GPS. On I-40 take exit 149 and turn North, then East (away from Albuquerque) on Frontage Road. Pass Camping World, then on right. Only 10 minutes from downtown ABQ.

Date of Stay:

Price is now $27, Good Sam brought it $24. No Good Sam rate for weekly booking. Some sites very close together. Almost all the water bibs leaked to some degree. Some units used by working people (not a problem though). Nice Coffee House at entrance. Although it is close to the road it is not noisy. Very convenient for Espanola. Good site to use as a base for touring Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Taos.

Date of Stay:

Very pleasant and helpful at office. Disappointed that price a gone up from previous reviews. Very open, only water/electric, we doubled on a site and had to use the 20Amp. Plenty of open space to site rigs of any size. Go carts not currently operating.

Date of Stay:

Great overnighter. Easy to find, very laid back owner. Reasonably level. Close to Steakhouse and 'Conoco Cafe' Route 66 landmark.
