This park is primarily a snowbird park, but the people are great. We were only planning on staying a couple nights, but since we had time to kill prior to getting into LA, we stayed 9 days. Manager is great. Grass is a plus. They have several get togethers which they make you feel really welcome. Area is not the best, but we felt safe. Back in sites, but manager helps. One day the manager said they were busy with 7 rigs in. Give it a try, we enjoyed it. Passport America. We will stop here everytime on our way to Los Angeles from Florida.

Date of Stay:

Great park, The older lady who checks you in could not have been any more gracious. Give it a try. Only downfall is you can hear the train at night, but really did not bother us. Great park, easy on and off I-10.

Date of Stay:

What a surprise. Cleaned up from previous reviews. Campsites were spotless and you can still hear the train, but not that bad. We used it as a stop over for one night on way to Quartzite. Please give them a try, they could not be nicer. The caretaker indicated he started about a month ago and he indicated the owners could not be any nicer to work for. He started gradually started cleaning up the place at his own pace and it shows. Caretaker is retired and does it at his convenience. He is proud of it and you can see the results. Front desk could not be any friendlier.

Date of Stay:

Called ahead the day prior and she indicated to come on in. It was extremely crowded, but a well managed park. Everything was well maintained. Campsites were close together with very few trees. Run efficiently with all amenities. Would stay again, just too crowded for me. Not their fault at all. Big city RV park.

Date of Stay:

Quick on and off I-10. Great overnight. Free continental breakfast. Spotless. No trees, new looking, pull through. Rained the day before and grass was soaked. Place was spotless. Close to interstate, did not bother us. Very few spots open.

Date of Stay:

Great enjoyable park, rustic and they have campfire every night and for breakfast. Lot of seasonals. Quick on and off I-10.

Date of Stay:

We used Passport America discount. We arrived and did not realize it was not valid on Friday night. When we called ahead, we told the receptionist that we use PPA. She did not tell us it was not valid for the Friday night, but they did give us the discount price. Otherwise, we were going to leave. A lot for the kids to do. There are McCalls, alligators, rabbits, and turtles. It is a great place set up for kids to enjoy. Very clean and people are very friendly. Would go back on Passport rates, but could get expensive at just a quick overnight stop. Lot of people are using the park and a lot of kids. That is what they are attracting. They are updating a lot.

Date of Stay:

Correct about being the poster child of campgrounds. Great sites and very helpful in all ways. Lot to do with tennis, pickle ball, church services, and pot luck. You name it and it is here. We came in at the last minute and they got us booked in. I have never stayed at a campsite like this one. Only downside, if any, is garbage is a bit of a walk.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects Passport America. Lot of seasonal or full-time residents, but a great surprise. What a PPA campground is expected to be like with the price. Not real fancy, but acceptable. Manager is great. Makes a nice place for an overnight stop. Campsites are not real level, but I was able to put a block on one side and level immediately. Free laundry, showers, and bath. Give it a try, we liked it. Manager said a lot of oil workers stay here, but this is off season.

Date of Stay:

Another Passport America. What a rip off. $20 was suppose to half price with PPA discount. Dumpy motel that when asked about bathroom, they opened one of the rooms for a bathroom. Did have good cable. I check voltage and it showed 166 volts, but it did work. It is in Tumurcari, which is suppose to be a Rte 66 tourist area, but not much to see at all. Town is falling down around itself. Reason we stayed there that it was suppose to have bathrooms and showers. Dirty and Dusty. Manager tried to take care of us, but he don't have much to work with. Motel prices are maximum, according to signs. $33 per night single and $17 being the low in the range. This guy charges $20 just to park in this RV campsite, motel converted. No one there except mostly full time residents or seasonal. Not a good stop for us.

Date of Stay:

Another Passport America questionable park. Mostly a mobile home park that has a few site RV camping sites. Most residents are permanent or seasonal. OK for a quick overnight, but don't expect much.

Date of Stay:

Not the Bates as others indicate, but just a quick jump off and back on I-40. Close to Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Wife kind of liked it, but not the fanciest park in town. Currently up for sale. Only one bathroom, no shower, does not flush too well. Did have sewer service. We would stop back if we were passing through. Only 3 campers there when we were there. The motel part is abandoned.

Date of Stay:

Manager could not been any nicer. 25 cents for 3 minute shower. Soup night Wednesday, Donation. People at the park are friendly. Have coffee in morning. Fun and friendly. Not the fanciest park we have been to, but all the amenities you need: water, sewer, elec. We will be back. Have a yard sale on the weekend at the location. Close to downtown. NEED TO RESERVE BY October for next year RV show. No credit cards, check or cash works.

Date of Stay:

They are working on the park and hope it gets better. Lot of sites and lot of sites with people that stay there seasonally. Closest Thousand Trails to LA. Bathrooms were in need of repair along with showers.

Date of Stay:

Middle of the road. No TV reception and Cell signal really weak, (Sprint). Has possibilities, but staff not real friendly. Bathrooms were damaged with vandals (kids). They tried to fix them, but not whole lot of improvement. No toliet paper, holes in walls. One bathroom was fairly new, but others needed improvement. They are doing something with the kiddie pool, but I think time would best be served elsewhere. We are Thousand Trails Members and will not go back even though it is the closest one to LA, unless we can not get in another one. People next to us in a Class A was really upset and wrote them really a nasty letter. Did a lot of walking and Acton was ok: really small town. We went to Palmdale to shop. Showers were broken: had to turn them on and off.
