Fenton Lake State Park, Jemez Springs, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Fenton Lake is a beautiful location, but the campground was designed when tent camping was the norm. Maybe 10-15% of the sites are suitable for a 20' RV and then you have to deal with tow vehicle parking. Some sites are level, but many require considerable blocking to level. There is a single drinking water spigot at the boat ramp. So bring your 5 gallon water jugs to transport water. No dump station anywhere close. Nearest groceries are available in La Cueva (10 miles) and fuel in Jemez Pueblo (30 miles). No cell service. FYI NM126 from Seven Springs to Cuba has a 15 mile section not yet paved that can be a white knuckle adventure to drive when wet or snow covered. I would not pull my 25' travel trailer through this even when it is dry. This is a popular destination so weekends and holidays are very busy. I do use this park as a base for area fishing during the work week and sleep in the shell of my truck. Quite pleasant! We camped at Fenton Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

Queen Mine RV Park, Bisbee, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I concur with the previous reviews, but I need to add information about access to and egress from the RV park. Coming from the east on AZ80 you will exit to old Bisbee for 150 yards or so then make a hard left and go through a 13'5" underpass of AZ80. Then 150 yards to Dart Road and right to the Queen Mine parking lot. Then a sharp left up a short 50 yard ONE LANE steep climb (look before you start) to the park. Coming from the west on AZ80 is more straight forward to the Dart Road turn. While at the park study the egress routes. Going east on AZ80 is a tight turn where you will probably run your right side trailer wheels off a curb. Going west on AZ80 involves crossing multiple lanes of traffic. Careful!!! As far as Bisbee goes .... I was in the San Francisco area while in the military in the late 60s. I think some of those hippies moved to Bisbee and now have grey hair. Their shops are colorful and quaint bring back memories. We camped at Queen Mine RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Chloride NM is an 1880's silver mining ghost town with a year round population of about 9. The best thing about Chloride is that you are off the grid .... zero bars and zero G's (no cells or internet). The owners (the Edmonds) are walking history books and like to tell the stories of Chloride. The museum is well worth the time. It is quiet and very dark at night and the ghosts are friendly. Don't forget to visit the two cemeteries with some very interesting headstones. This was our second trip.

Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM, Pilar, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is a BLM site near the river in the Rio Grande Gorge. In march we were only neighbors with the campground host most of the time. If it rains the park can get a little muddy. We camped at Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Rio Bravo Campground BLM in a Travel Trailer.

This is bighorn sheep country and the last two visits in March 2015 and 2016 we saw sheep near the Taos Junction bridge up river. Excellent hiking and knock-your-socks-off views. No cell or internet. Quiet.

Pendaries RV Resort, Rociada, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This was an very good stay for us. I would have given 5 stars overall, but two points need to be mentioned: 1) The free Wi-Fi service was there, but it was iffy at best. The most reliable service required a walk to near the welcome center or the clubhouse. 2) The site gravel pads were reasonably level, but some that were built up were narrow such that you step out the RV on to a slope. Thus you must park the RV to one side to avoid the slope and then create more of a leveling problem. On the plus side, this was a very pleasant stay, quiet and relaxing. We will come back. We camped at Pendaries RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stock up before you come. A grocery store is about 20 miles away. There is a small convenience store on site and a restaurant at the golf course, but we did not try it.

Lightner Creek Campground, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This was a relatively quiet stay of 5 nights away from the highway. The facility was nearly full always. The sites are rather close together, many not level and some maneuvering was tight. The staff was very friendly, escorted us to the site and assisted with backing in. Some sites, like ours, were water and electric only. So the use of the dump station is necessary. This is my biggest criticism: when your are positioned to use the dump station, the access to a significant portion of the west end sites is blocked and your rig is parked on a slope. I would stay here again. We camped at Lightner Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sky Mountain Resort RV Park, Chama, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park. The people were friendly, escorted us to the site and assisted in backing in. The trees in the shaded portion were great mature cottonwoods. The site spacing was a bit tight. The biggest complaint is the width of the built up gravel site (#10). It was so narrow that with even blocking the left side to level the trailer, there was still a considerable slope on the right side that was not conducive to sitting under the awning. We camped at Sky Mountain Resort RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

White Sands Community RV & Manufactured Home Park, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This is a no reservations facility, but there were spaces available. The previous comments are confirmed. The facility is an older design and therein lies my comment. The sewer connections on the pull through sites are located to the extreme rear of the pad, so with the midships location of the tank connection get ready to run 15'-20' of sewer hose or back into the access lane to dump. The sewer connection was on the neighbors concrete pad and to close. There is not a dump station on the facility. There is a city dump station about a mile away available, if it is not full. This was a pleasant 7 night stay in a travel trailer. We camped at White Sands Community RV & Manufactured Home Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sundance RV Park, Cortez, Colorado

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

The facility was great for our needs in a 23' travel trailer for an overnight stay. Good enough that we stayed again on the return trip home. There were a lot of full time residents, but that did not bother us. My only complaint was the noise from the adjacent properties, but it was not bad. Good mom and pop restaurant near by. We camped at Sundance RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Navajo National Monument, Shonto, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good stop in northern Arizona where few, if any, other campgrounds exist. And the price is right: free. You will need to work at leveling your rig at nearly every site. No showers and water available at the restroom building. This is not a big rig place and it is about 9 miles off of US160. It is quiet and the views are great. The visitor center is quite interesting and it is worth staying an extra day or two to do the hikes to the ruins. We camped at Navajo National Monument in a Travel Trailer.
