With over 450 sites, there is almost always room a this nice RV parking area at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. Level gravel parking, with electric and sewer at each site, and an easily accessible dump station, and for only $20 a night. The office staff was very friendly, sharing information about places to visit and road conditions, and the 24 hour security is a welcome addition. There are some sites down near the river and a large pond, but we avoided that area since we stayed during a rare rainy time for New Mexico. A few miles to town with all the services, and a good base to visit Chaco Heritage National Monument and the four corners area. We will definitely stay here again.

Good location not far from Albuquerque, two lakes for fishing (extra $), and lots of room for walking people and dogs. The older northern section has more developed trees, but whoever designed this had never stayed in a RV park... tables with canopies are at the EXTREME end on the passenger side of the site, putting the bbq right at the window of an RV parked in the next site... bad design. The newer southern section they reversed the angle of the sites so the table and canopy are where it should be... middle of passenger side. However, the northern section is supposed to be for longer stay, the southern for over-nighters. Weekend partying with large groups with visitors from town led us to request to relocate to the quieter southern side, or we would change parks, which they allowed us to do. Yes the railroad is right there, and that's the biggest downside of this park. We will return.

Rate reflects NPS Senior discount. Level gravel sites, some pull-through mostly back-in. Power and water at all sites, central dump station on-site. This time of year it's full of people fishing for fall salmon, and space can be difficult to get. Verizon data service is mediocre at best, and nonexistent part of the time, so if you need access look elsewhere.

The previous reviews were the reason we decided to try this park for our first RV trip to Spokane. In addition to the excellent facilities listed above there are a couple of nice fenced dog areas, as well as a large open field adjacent to the park to exercise your four legged companions. We will definitely return.

Our first stay here, chosen because it's a convenient location for visiting nearby relatives. Friendly management, very clean and neat park. Restrooms and laundry were spotless, pool was clean and overall the park is very well maintained. Picnic tables are an extra $2; considering the price of the site they should be included if requested. That was the reason for a 9 instead of a 10 rating. We will definitely stay here again. Price reflects a 10 percent Good Sam discount.

Park is mostly long term residents who go to work every day, with a few very tight spaces for over night guests in the middle row. We were advised that one bathroom was out of service and not to use the other close one since the locks did not work. Long term residents cut through open sites with no regard for adjacent guests, driving extremely fast, in spite of many children in the streets. Easy access to propane and diesel at the adjacent truck stop, though speaking Spanish would definitely make your purchase experience easier. We were here for a quick overnight stop, and for that purpose it's OK.

Stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. Nothing fancy but it's conveniently located and there are not many alternatives within 30 miles. Nice grassy spaces, all hookups worked, friendly host. We will return.

We stayed here for a few days on recommendations of a friend who visited before but not stayed. A family friendly park with many small children zipping around the streets with little or no parental supervision. Sites are tight but angled for easy access even for large rigs, but no pull-through sites, only back-in. Sites closer to the beach access are mostly occupied by shareholders who reserve months in advance, with casual visitors placed closer to the highway or in tighter spaces at the south end. A lot of traffic moving rental and shareholder units in and out of spaces every day. Clubhouse, pool, arcade, and patio appeared very popular with the aged crowd. If you want a family friendly resort with many things for the kids, and not an actual beach, this is the place in Pismo Beach. If you want good beach access and quiet, look elsewhere.

This small park a few miles south of Tucson is a unique experience. The owners are two of the nicest, most friendly and welcoming hosts we have encountered in our years of RVing. Quiet desert setting, great views of the surrounding mountains, and the loudest sound was the coyotes at night in the desert. The owner has spent years building everything in this park himself, from the iron fencing to the adobe walls to the "Tiki Bar/Patio with Waterfall". Free laundry rooms are provided with Tucson sunshine for drying. If you want a quiet place near Tucson and don't need swimming pools, exercise rooms (hiking in Tucson Mountain Park is only a couple of miles away), or bingo games, check out the Bar J. We will return every year!

Rate reflects current Good Sam rate for a "premium" site on the lower level. These sites are closest to the ocean and well shaded, although more tightly packed than the "less premium" sites further back on the same level. There was little road noise and lots of sea lion sounds. It appears that about half the park is full timers and rental park models, but all are well kept. The staff was very friendly and the restrooms were clean though in need of some upgrading and repairs (plywood covering skylight openings). Some sites have small wooden decks; ours had a ocean view half round table made from a slice of a large old redwood tree. Nature path/dog walking area is several loops of grass mowed through the blackberries, and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed all the smells. We would definitely stay again.

Nice desert campground at the regional park adjacent to Calico Ghost Town. We were looking for an overnight stop, and this was in the right place, but we ended up staying two nights so we had a day to explore. Recent (and continuing) upgrades to the campground include new restroom buildings and a new entry for easier access. Sites in the full hookup area are tight, but those in the power only and no service areas are more open. Calico Ghost Town was good for a short visit, but was much more commercial than we expected with several tour bus with loads of foreign visitors swarming through the town. The location is good for access to other nearby desert areas, and the campground appears to be a place for individuals and groups who want to use their ATV's or Jeeps during the day but have a campground to return to at night.

We had reservations at a campground in Grand Canyon National Park, but that campground does not have hookups. We spent one night, then an early April snowstorm drove us to find power when overnight temperatures dropped to the mid-teens. Since the campground with hookups within the NP was full, this campground was recommended by the ranger on duty. It's convenient to the south entrance of GCNP, and that is the ONLY reason to stay here. Muddy dirty sites which badly need more gravel and leveling. Staff was friendly.

Date of Stay:

Older park with a mix of mobile homes, long term residents and overnight spaces. Sites are crowded and short, with tight turns in many areas. Staff was friendly and helpful. OK for an overnight stop only.

Date of Stay:

If you enjoy exploring ruins this park is a must visit. Just outside of Winslow, close to I-40 with easy access, roomy, well spaced sites with a view of town in the distance. Site water is turned off during winter, but water is available at the dump station.

Good for an overnight stop, we stay hear at least once a year. Friendly staff, clean, level gravel sites (concrete pad with cable TV available for additional $) easy access.
