Park is very clean. Road entry is paved, but park roads are gravel; however, they water the roads at least once during the day. The roads are well maintained and in better shape than many paved roads in parks we've visited. We had a nice grass front yard, level site and picnic table. Separation between sites was ample and provided a larger amount of privacy than many parks. We've stayed at two other parks in Las Cruces and this is by far the best when not traveling with grandkids. There is ample room for maneuvering any size rig and parking is ample for one car. Access to the city shopping and Old Mesilla is convenient.

This KOA is one of the worst we have stayed in, little wonder it was available when other RV parks in the same area were full. The price is too high for the condition of the park. Our coach site is paved but has mud puddles in and along it, raining or not. The site is level enough to easily level the coach. We were put in a site that barely fits our 36 ft coach and we have to park our car parallel to the road and partially on the grass and we still encroach in the travel path. The park appears to assign sites randomly without regard to what length rig is going in. The sites are extremely close and our neighbors slides are "on our side." The patio sites appear to be better but you have to negotiate the dense pack to get to the patio sites. People have trouble getting in and out of sites. This KOA does not escort rigs in to ensure parking is done properly. Trees located at the front of the site and rigs and cars parked in front of our street prevented us from exiting out as a "pull through." Luckily we were able to back out of our site. The picnic table is peeling. There is litter around the park in spite of workers driving around in a KOA truck. The sewer connection is not threaded, located in a low spot with a chain attached to find the plug and it all was covered by debris. The only reason we found the connection was because there was a broken masonry block covering it which was necessary to use to hold the sewer hose in the sewer connection. Cable is good. Water flow is low although the pressure is pretty good. It rained and you cannot go out without totally soaking your feet because the drainage is so poor. We will choose another park if we ever return to this area. Price reflects KOA discount.

Park is quiet and easy to find. Roads are paved, as are the sites. Sites tend to slope quite a bit and we sought a different site than the one assigned. We found a different site but still had to put the motor home passenger side dual on a block to avoid extending jacks more than we desire. Water service is shared by two sites so you very well may need an additional hose to connect. The sites are short and our 36-foot was backed in so the jacks were barely on the pavement. Our toad barely fit in front of the coach but only by parking parallel to the drive and parking partially on the grass. The park is maintained by the state and is okay. The park is located south of Lexington but remains a convenient trip into town and distilleries.

Gravel sites and roads except for entry and main circulation around site. Gravel roads are washed gravel and well compacted and don't produce high levels of dust nor mud when raining. Sites are reasonably wide, very long and level. Trees could be a problem for some sites for satellite reception. There are concrete patios but not all are in good condition. Permanent resident sites are well kept and do not distract from the park. Several pet areas were convenient to our site.

Tight park for driving but nice space between units. Big rigs would have a harder time getting in and out; our 36-foot was about all I'd want. Laundry facilities limited. Concrete patio and concrete runners for tires. Grass around the coach but NO parking on the grass. Near freeway and the railroad. Don't hear traffic from freeway other than as white noise. Train noise is present a couple times a night but is short duration and we never heard a whistle. So-so water pressure but good sanitary system for dumping. Convenient to parkway and Biltmore.

The park is in a nice setting but is still under construction. Some sites were all grass and some had very narrow gravel lanes to park on. Because of the rain we were directed to a gravel lane and told not to get off the gravel because we'd sink like the unit next to us had. It was extremely wet and there were a lot of mud mounds (crawfish-like mounds) all over which created a muddy entrance into the coach because they couldn't be avoided except by walking with extreme care. The gravel lane was very soft and our jack pads were the only saving grace. Pulling our toad in and out of the site felt like we were dragging it rather than it rolling freely behind the coach. There were no picnic tables or fire rings. Dirt had settled above some of the utilities and created a tripping hazard. The sewer connection was capped by an unglued "glue on plug" with a single ceramic drawer pull that made it nearly impossible to get the cap off. Our friend's connection was off the ground at least a foot. The non threaded pipe required a donut but we couldn't keep ours in the pipe so standing on it was the only recourse. If it had been a foot off the ground we would not have been able to dump. The final jury is out on this but given the still under construction state it is way over-priced. We've stayed in much nicer parks for less money. If we were going to play golf it might be worth another try but for a single night it is way too high priced.

The pull through sites have concrete pads and grass surrounding them. Our first site had a broken sewer connection on the wrong side of the site and our electrical did not work although after we moved the owner indicated they checked it and it worked. The sites are pretty close together. There is nothing for children to do here other than walk a "nature trail" cut into the brush alongside a creek. We would stay here again if needed for an overnight. Rate does not reflect a $2 surcharge/day for summer electrical. Owner only accepts cash or check and doesn't always have correct change hence our rate reduced to $32.

Clean park, well maintained. Relatively new according to their literature. They are trying to get trees started. Gravel roads and sites. Sites were level and well maintained. No grass except at the play area. Any weed growth was well cut. Park was quiet except for an irrigation pump motor in an adjacent field that ran all night. The motor noise did not keep us awake. Friendly staff. We'd stay here again. We did not experience wet weather so cannot assess what the park would be like in wet weather other than the roads did not have ruts nor did the sites.

     

Pueblo KOA

Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay:

The park is located north of Pueblo very much in the country adjacent to I-25. If you need groceries you must go into Pueblo as there is nothing out here. The park is graveled but is wearing thin and needs to be added to. In rain it might be muddy. The sites are level but are full of weeds that need to be mowed/cleaned up. We are used to traveling in the southwest, are used to water lean camping and used to gravel facilities. Hosts are friendly. The 50 amp sites are farthest from the pool. The pool area is small and if many families were attempting to swim, it would be very crowded. This is not the typical KOA that we try to stay in when traveling with grandkids. Our Magellan GPS took us off at exit 104 when they are located at exit 108, so be careful of your GPS.

Date of Stay:

Park is conveniently located to Mesa Verde. Entrance, roads, and sites are well maintained gravel as would be expected in the water lean southwest. Sites were level and large enough. Our pull through site did not require us to unhook although we did for day trips. We don't like parking where ours and our neighbor's front doors "face" each other. We did not have a neighbor so it was moot for us. No cable TV, but antenna and satellite reception were excellent. The pool hours are too limited for summer; the pool closed at 7 pm which is way too early if you want to engage in daytime activities and want to swim after dinner. We stayed here because our grandkids were traveling with us and they were disappointed in the pool hours. The park has some shade trees which are nice.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice park. The facility was very clean and the grounds well maintained. The sites were level and did not require any special maneuvering. The "everyday sites" appear to be quite close together. We stayed in a view site and would not have felt infringed upon if we had neighbors. The pool area and pool was very nice. We stayed with young grandchildren and used the pool each day. The pool is 4 feet at it's most shallow end, so it would be difficult for younger children. The playground is well maintained also but the equipment is quite old. We often stay in closer to town, but the sites are too close together by comparison. In the future we probably will change from the "in town" park to here in spite of not needing a pool for the grandchildren. The freeway noise is non existent compared to the "in-town" parks.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice park but not well appointed with site amenities. We made reservations in January and they would not give us a confirmation number. When we arrived they had no recollection of us but luckily we were able to procure a site in spite of the big biker rally in the area. They didn't seem to concerned. The site was tight backing in and landscape suffers because even with a 36' rig we hit the edge. The site is gravel without picnic table. We'd stay again but only for overnight based on the price, lack of amenities and other places available around the area.

Date of Stay:

The park has easy access from the freeway. In fact it is right next to the freeway with a lot of associated noise when you are outside. The roads are gravel and not terrible, but could be dressed up. The sites are grass with some gravel mixed in but I'd worry during a wet period. Many sites are not very level and you could have trouble leveling. We were there and had our choice of spots. They called and told us to pick a spot that they were leaving early and our receipt would be on the door. They left early and did not post our receipt. We'd stay again but only for overnight.

Big Cypress is a very nice park. The only problem is if you think you are staying in Clewiston think again. This park is away from everything. The night view is absolutely great, noise is totally absent, roads into the park from I-75 is okay, and the mosquitos are big. For a get away this park is a great spot. If you anticipate going places and want anything less than a day trip such as Okeechobee Lake this is probably not the park to stay in because of its remoteness. The museum was great; the swamp tour was pretty touristy sounding but in all fairness we didn't do it. The 20 minutes for an air boat ride seemed really short for the dollars involved. We would stay here again if we wanted a remote stay.

Date of Stay:

Paved access roads and paved sites with concrete patios. Sites are fairly short and at 36 feet with a toad we barely fit by pulling the tow bar completely in. Area outside the paved/concrete area is small gravel. The concrete patios were cracked and broken where people have driven rigs over them. The paved sites are full of depressions where leveling jacks have sunken in. The park is quiet at night. Has a nice dog walk area at the front of the park which could be difficult for a dog to make early in the morning because of the travel distance. Verizon worked okay. They do not offer any discounts.
