This was just an "overnight stop" on our way home from Colorado. Needing a place to spend the night, we saw their sign from the highway (Interstate 40, just west of Amarillo), so we pulled into their property and were immediately impressed with the size (huge) and cleanliness of the park. The sites are big and dead-level concrete. Power, water and sewer hook-ups were perfectly situated and in excellent working order (looked new!). While there are few-to-no trees, the park is attractive nonetheless. The restrooms/showers are extremely nice - large and clean. Oasis is just far enough off the road to be very quiet. Although brief, we enjoyed our visit and will surely be back!

We spent a delightful few days at Blue Spruce. When we arrived, we were impressed with the huge trees and the cleanliness of the park. We settled in to our reserved site, but after walking around a bit (after set-up, of course), we discovered another side - recently vacated - that was even bigger and prettier. A quick trip back to the office got us the "OK" to move to the newly-discovered site, and move we did... into site 103. The site was large and beautiful, backing up to their "mountain" and with a large graveled sitting area with fire ring. Perfect for evening campfires with friends, new and old! The attention to detail at Blue Spruce is much in evidence with little stone-surrounded planted areas with flowers and native shrubs. There is a perfect picnic place high on a rock outcropping that is easily reached. The laundry room is nice, clean, and in good order. The restrooms/showers likewise are clean and well cared-for. Every member of the staff as well as the owners are delightful. Friendly and always happy to help. As we were leaving Blue Spruce to head over to SE Utah for a few days, we made reservations for another couple of days after we returned from Utah. That was not our original plan, but Blue Spruce was just so nice, we wanted to return. All in all, a great place within a short drive to Durango and super home base for day trips to Silverton, Ouray, and the surrounding area! Recommended? Yes sir... highly recommended!

Although the lake is tragically low, this was an entirely pleasant place to spend the evening. Recently 'improved,' Rocky Creek Park COE campground is very well maintained and was very, very clean. Our site was nearly perfectly level and easy to back in to. Water pressure was very high! The campground has that well-manicured 'park like' look and feel. Over thirty deer met us as we entered the site loop and they just continued to graze, paying not the slightest attention to us. Except for the Argentine ants, this was a perfectly delightful stay!

High on the southern 'cliffs' overlooking Lake San Cristobal, this "no frills" campground offers excellent views and that often-elusive "peace and quiet!" Providing a convenient "base" for sight-seeing, fishing, or "four wheeling" any of the areas spectacular four wheel drive roads, Wupperman Campground is an excellent alternative to commercial campgrounds. We camped here many years ago when out two sons were young and the "remote-nest" of Wupperman gave them more of a true outdoor experience than they would have.
