Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail), Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We knew ahead of time that the exit off I-25 was tricky but had no problem. The back-in sites are organized around a gravel square and we paid for a "Large or view Back-in site". We got a site on the southeast corner with a fabulous view. To see the view out of the windshield of our motorhome, however, we had to pull in. This put the sewer (in the back) out of reach but we didn't need it for just two nights. Wifi was OK but slow and Verizon was no better. The pedestal outlet was so close to the ground that we couldn't use our surge protector. We would stay here again. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Apache RV Park, Cruzville, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with the other reviewers. This campground is a great value and a more than adequate base from which to explore the Gila National Forest. The sites were very level and the hookups good, but there weren't any amenities like patio furniture. We didn't use the bathrooms and showers. I think there was only one other camper when we stayed in mid August, but we were told that they get real busy in hunting season. There is no cell phone service there from any providers. The closest reliable spot for Verizon is six miles toward Reserve at the top of a hill. The campground wifi was reliable but very slow (good for email). We are thankful to the owners that this campground exists in such a beautiful but sparsely populated place. We camped at Apache RV Park in a Motorhome.

Flagstaff KOA, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

As a curmudgeon, at first there were many things I didn't like. Perhaps being in a KOA "Holiday" over the last weekend before school started was part of it. The sites were narrow and many were far from level. Ours was more level than others but still our right rear wheel was off the ground. The park was near full and there were lots of families with young kids that hung around all day. In the evening campfires everywhere came to life, forcing us to close all windows and vents. After I met the friendly campfire family next door, however, I started to mellow out and appreciate some good things about the park. The ponderosa pine forest throughout was beautiful. The too-narrow roads became just the right size not to dominate the forest. People enjoying themselves became contagious. There were neat trails to walk the dog. The wifi was so fast that we streamed Netflix (no rule against it) and the Verizon service was good. We asked for FHU and got FHU. We would return and maybe spring for a $93 deluxe site with patio, furniture, and gas grill. We camped at Flagstaff KOA in a Motorhome.

Rio Chama RV Park, Chama, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The park is embedded in a dense grove of narrow-leaf cottonwood, which made it very shady. We liked that and the general ambiance and didn't care if sat tv didn't work. Wifi was usually very slow but Verizon 4G Lte was excellent. There are a great variety of sites and a lot of empty ones, so a lot to pick from. Big rigs might have problems with tight turns and narrow streets. It was fun to meet other campers and their dogs at the train bridge over the river when the train came by. The river is not visible from the park because of a bank and a fence. There are gates for river access. We will return. We camped at Rio Chama RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cochise Terrace RV Resort, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed her for only one night and it was certainly convenient for that purpose. The reason for the average review is that the short-term rv area is just a big, black asphalt lot. There are small islands between sites for the utilities, including a curb our sewer hose had to traverse. We'd probably stay here again for another night, but I wouldn't call this a destination park. Perhaps there are better sites if you stay several nights. We camped at Cochise Terrace RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA, Willcox, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We have a winner! This park had the fastest wifi we've yet encountered in six+ years of RV'ing. The rules did not say "no streaming", so after a month of mediocre wifi elsewhere it was a joy to stream away with zero problems. The staff was friendly, the site was good, clean gravel, and it was easy on/off the interstate. This will become our regular stop on the way to central Arizona. We camped at Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA in a Motorhome.

Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects monthly rate. This is a huge snowbird park with lots of amenities and activities, none of which I could take advantage of because I was here for medical reasons. It was very quiet and neighbors were friendly. Our street (K) was 95% RVs, while others have park models only. Wifi was very good. Water would shut off temporarily about once a week because some yahoo would drive over water lines. They broke their own refund policy to return about $600 when we able to leave earlier than planned. That earned our good will and we would return. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Western Way RV Resort (55+ park), Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

All short term RV sites were gravel with concrete patios without furniture. Although it felt a little cramped, it was very quiet. There was both free and paid (high speed) wifi; we used only the free (that was off and on the first two days then fast and dependable the third day). This is the perfect place from which to visit the Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Gate's Pass, and Saguaro National Park. We camped at Western Way RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The only restaurants reasonably close are in the small strip mall across Kinney Rd that cater to the retirement communities. Los Nopales was OK Mexican food with friendly service. House of Cheng was the worst Chinese food I've every had. You can do much butter buying frozen at Walmart.

The MotorCoach Resort, Chandler, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This place is OK for a short stay because after 3 nights the constant noise made us want to leave. The layout is strange: almost all sites are pull ins so you have to unhook your toad. There are no patios at all: no pads/grass, no tables, no grills, etc. There are no amenities; this is not a resort by any definition, especially in the snowbird haven of Phoenix. I never was able to connect to wifi with my iPad. I called the owner on the third day but he knew nothing of this problem, although he offered to send a tech. All this for only $65. We camped at The MotorCoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Pie Town RV Park, Pie Town, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is at 7,700 feet elevation in a very pretty and remote part of New Mexico. There are 5 pull-thrus, 3 of which are long enough for big rigs. Wife was excellent; Verizon is 3G. The communal grill, fire pit, and tables were nice (see photos). The sites lacked patios and tables. Sites were all gravel and a little unlevel. No cable TV but no trees to block satellite. The vegetation is pinyon, juniper, and Ponderosa pine. The whole area is mountainous and beautiful. All in all, this is a very nice place to stay. We camped at Pie Town RV Park in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed a Saturday night in late March and the park was full. Maybe that's why the wifi was not usable (Verizon was OK). There were lots of families and I got the feeling that a lot of locals camped here just to get away and get outside. For us, a retired couple, this wasn't what we'd call a "destination" park, but it was fine for a place to stay a night or a few. Sites were wide, hookups were good, and the dog park was nice (see uploaded photo). We didn't try the food. As usual for a KOA, the price was high. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you can, avoid the highway between Pecos and Carlsbad. The oil and gas truck traffic was horrendous, and the highway littered with gravel and rock. Our windshield was hit by a rock as a truck passed going the other way. It left a ping-pong ball sized souvenir.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We never could contact them by phone to make a reservation; no one ever answered or called back. I finally called the resort hotel front desk and they passed a note to the RV park side to call me, and they did. This is a nice park from which to explore the area, but compared to staying at Study Butte, you'll add 40 minutes to a round trip to Big Bend. The streets are wide, the sites are wide, and there's a concrete patio and table at each. Wifi was good and there is Verizon 3G. The resort next door is beautiful, the restaurant is elegant, and there are lot's of activities; just be prepared to open your wallet. The RV park pool was open in March. IMO, this is the best RV park in the Lajitas/Study Butte area. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Ajo Heights RV Park, Ajo, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Based on our driving around Ajo, this is the best RV park in town. The campground is very clean and nicely landscaped, with a cactus garden and clean colored gravel around the sites. Wifi was fast and dependable. On the negative side, sites were narrow and there's no patio area with table. We will stay here again. We camped at Ajo Heights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quail Run RV Park, Quartzsite, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a big, plain, park with wide paved streets, wide gravel sites, concrete patios with no tables, and good utilities. Wifi is Tengo internet and you get one hour/day free; we just used our Verizon hotspot, so don't know how fast it was. There is no cable or broadcast antenna, but few trees to block satellite. There were plenty of empty sites in mid-February. There was a small, fenced dog run. It was a good value and we would probably return for a short stay. We camped at Quail Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Benson KOA, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

There is little good about this campground, but also little bad. The good points are the dog areas and being half a mile from town, out in the desert. The bad points are: narrow sites, slow wifi (good Verizon), ancient sewer connection too wide for modern hoses, and the fact that all pull-thru sites face south (which means that motorhome windshields face the sun most of the day). The price of $45 is way too high for what you get. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.
