The rate reflects a monthly fee. The woman in the office suggested a monthly rate (even though we planned to stay 3 weeks) because the weekly rate would have been much more. This was a great service. However, it went south from there. We ended up switching sites 4 times -- we couldn't get good sat service in the 1st site, the 2nd site wasn't level, and the other two sites had bad electric pedestals: my Surge Guard 44270 indicated an Open Ground. Just to confirm this, I tried connecting our RV directly to the pedestal, but received the same error. When I informed the woman in the office, she said that there was nothing wrong with the park's electrical service because it had been checked by local electricians. I asked if we could just stay the night because it was about 4 pm now, but she said no. At this point I was so angry that my wife had to go in and get our money back.

The owners seem to be investing heavily in renovations and the price is right at this campground. That said, they could also spend some more on landscaping as the campground is either gravel or asphalt. Plus, there is not really a dog park here as it's a walkway around a stinky water retention pond. However, there is a very good off leash county dog park less than a mile away. Campground Wi-Fi was spotty, but 4G when available and good Verizon 4G LTE is also available.

A beautiful desert campground. We camped in the B Loop and had water plus 50 amp electrical service. The campsites are well spaced, but for the most part there is little shade to be had. There are a number of walking trails, and the park is located very close to city services (grocery stores, restaurants, etc). Though the water pressure in the showers was low, the building itself was very clean, bright, and covered with ceramic tile. Verizon 4G LTE service was good.

Very scenic park. Our site in the Cinnamon Teal Loop overlooked the lakes and steep bluffs. We originally were going to stay in Redhead loop site #5, but site was not level enough for our CLass A. There is no park Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G LTE was very strong. Using the shower in the combo bathroom/shower stalls tended to get the entire floor wet, but facilities were clean. We left a day early because fall nights got very cold (20s) as the park is at 6300 feet. The nearby Safeway store in Show Low is a great grocery store with a surprising wine selection.

The rate was based on 11 days during the Balloon Fest. A great park. I think the staff makes this campground special as they tried to answer every question and assist us in any way. The sites are paved and level. We were in site #141 on the end of a row so there was extra space for our toad. There is a small dog park and the camp WiFi was 3G. This campground is in a great location as it's not too far out of town and located right on Central Avenue which you can take for a great slow tour of Albuquerque. Also, for Balloon Fest the park is very near one of the park and ride areas.

This is a funky campground south of Santa Fe. It's convenient because it's close to the city, and the staff is helpful and friendly. However, $41/night is too expensive for what it offers. The campground roads are narrow and turns can be challenging. There is a dog area for small dogs, but there is also a fairly long trail that can be used for a dog walk (or a regular walk). The laundry is good, but one of the washers and one of the dryers I tried using didn't operate. We couldn't connect to the campground Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G service was very good.

The fee reflects $29/night (full hookups) + $8/day park pass. There are only 4 full hookup sites 1, 3, 6, and 63. However, the site we reserved (#3) was not level enough for our Class A. We had to try out 2 more sites before we found one level enough. Otherwise, the park was spectacular. Fisherman's peak in one direction and the Rockies in another. The bathroom, shower, and laundry building was new and very clean. Verizon 4G LTE service was very good.

The $38/night was a weekly rate. While the campground management appeared to be busy adding additional camping sites, there are things they could have done better. For example, 2 of the 4 dryers were broken, there were large washouts from previous rains, the campground office hours during this time of year were completely random, WiFi coverage was spotty at best, and they watered the plants early every morning with a noisy tractor.

Wow! One of the best campgrounds (state, federal, and private) I've been to. This is a 50A full hookup park with Cheyenne Mountain above you and Colorado Springs below. Stellar views. There are plenty of hiking trails and access to modern conveniences in nearby Colorado Springs. However, once in a while the quiet would be broken by artillery practice at nearby Fort Carson. The nightly rate of $45 =$29/night + Colorado day pass. So if you're planning on camping in a lot of state parks in pays to buy a annual pass. We had good Verizon 4G LTE service.

After just coming from Lovewell State Park for $32 a night with full hookups, Prairie Dog State Park was a let down. Nearby Norton was very sparse in terms of services. However, Verizon 4G was very good.

What a find! Though the lake was 10 feet below level, it was beautiful. Great Blue Herons and Pelicans were all over the lake. The sites to get are in Willow South Utility Campground. These are pull through with full hookups and 50A electric. We camped in site #3, but sites 4, 5, and 6 have superb lake views. Verizon phone and data were marginal, but we could get 4G LTE in the morning and night.

Right off Hwy 36 at the west end of Seneca. When we camped here, it was an "absentee landlord" kind of park -- that is, no one was here to sign us in or monitor the park. We put money in an envelope and signed ourselves in. No big deal until someone pulled into the campground and slept in his car all night. Though there seemed to be on on-site caretaker, he didn't do anything. On a positive note, they had the best laundry we've seen.

A small campground surrounded by a cornfield and a canal. We camped here for a week before and during the Labor Day weekend. There are several seasonal campers, but mostly weekenders. Good laundry and bathrooms. The campground offers Tengo WiFi, but we were unable to connect. However, the Verizon 4G data signal was strong so we could use our own hotspot. Had a concern with the water supply at first: our water was noticeably cloudy and turned our water filter orange. I notified the campground and they flushed their water filters.

If this is your destination stop for racing around the Silver Creek sand dunes (which we did and it was great), then this is your kind of campground. If not, avoid it as some of the dune buggy folks can be jerks. At any rate, avoid the weekends when people pour into the campground. The camp staff was very responsive and professional. Campground WI-Fi was barely 3G at times, but our Verizon 4G modem was very good. Verizon phone coverage was also ok.

One of the best parks we've visited. Entire park is surrounded by woodlands. Sites are landscaped and very private with driveways of stamped concrete. Park Internet service was the best we've ever had and local Verizon phone and data (4G) was also very good. Indigo Bluffs is a stone's throw away from Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and the entire area has a lot to offer -- reminded us of Wisconsin's Door County peninsula.
