It's an asphalt parking lot - literally. No hook-ups. There was one spot in the middle that was just barely enough room for my 35' MH + toad. The trails are right there, though. There's a bathroom I did not use - probably NPS standard issue. There are some beautiful tent sites. Very windy. No cell, no Wi-Fi.

Wonderful park with wonderful owners and a price that can't be beat. Why not a 10? I have no usable shower in my RV, so count on the park to provide one. Theirs is in a standard house-type bathroom located in the double-wide that serves as the club house, which closes at 8pm. If you are camping without a toilet, that can prove to be mighty inconvenient. If you are lucky to get in when the water is hot it lasts only about 3-4 minutes. It is exceptionally clean, though. There are a variety of spaces, some back-in, some pull through; mine was pull-in/back-out with a nice "yard". Not your typical parking lot layout. There is nice landscaping throughout with level, gravel spots. Lots of vacant land all around which you can hike through. Some of the spots on the end 10/11 and 12/13 are very close together. Free DVD/VHS lending library with around 100 DVD titles. No children's amenities. Close to town and attractions. Very pet friendly. I was close to the Wi-Fi and the signal was moderate, and often better service than my Verizon Mi-Fi. Rate reflects a monthly rate of $336 total (cash only).

I stayed a month plus 2 more weeks because I liked it. It's not for everyone, a bit older and a bit quirky. It's very pet friendly. Not big-rig-friendly. There are 3 sections with different rates - the front, the hill and the back. The spots in the back and on the hill are mostly long-term. Spots in back are along a road cut out of the hill next to the river. It's a tough turn-around and all are back in spots, but angled so that your door pretty much faces the river. That's where I stayed and it was great. My RV is 35' and it really no problem getting parked. Once parked it felt like a lot of space. I especially enjoyed the Verde River which flows along the side of the park and was about 30 feet from my door. The front section is more of a "standard" setup and the lowest rate. The hill is the highest rate and offers quite a lot of privacy. The bathroom/shower is passable - not exceptionally clean, but not gross. Wi-Fi is only available to the front spots. I use Verizon Wi-Fi and it worked very well in the back. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I used a laundromat in town (3-minute drive) that was 800 times nicer than the one on site. Some of the permanent residents are on the colorful side, but friendly enough. And there are tent sites in a park right along the river. Nicest tent sites in an RV park I've seen. My only complaint is the highway noise. It's quieter the farther in the back you go, the front is worse and the hill is quite loud. Convenient location.

Great park. Off the highway, so a bit of noise, but really not bad. Mostly grass sites, some are pretty sweet and shady are held by seasonal renters. Nestled in among the cliffs heading to Wolf Creek Pass on US160. There's horseback riding and ATVing run out of the office and professional quilting equipment. South Fork is 6 miles and the National Forest is 200 feet away. The air is cool and it rains some. There is a nice laundromat and showers. The water is a bit on the brown side, so bring an extra filter and the pressure comes and goes. Quiet, inexpensive and quite beautiful. I would stay here again. I am here for over 1 month paying $320/month plus electric.

Very convenient for a stop over. Right next to Rainbow Grocery which has almost every thing you might need or want: food, automotive, sporting goods and RV supplies and prices are not bad at all. Right in the middle of town at the intersection of US160 and the road up to Creed. Surprisingly quiet. Filled with people from Paradise, TX that come every year for the last 40 years. Country/Western music jam session are frequent. Club house with pool table. Friendly owners that guide you in and help you set up. It's pretty tight - all back in spots with rear hookups. I had quite a stretch to make with my sewer hose, ended up moving over a couple of feet so I didn't have to go under the RV. I would camp here again only out of convenience.
