We concur with the previous comment. The site was long enough to not have to unhook the toad and very wide. The pergola and wooden lawn chairs were a nice touch and pleasant surprise. Management was very pleasant, efficient and helpful. We were warned about the water pressure being a little high but had a regulator, so no problem. This is a great park and will stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Sites are long and wide but our site (H8) need more than usual leveling front to back. Road/train noise was not an issue. Basically, this is a huge gravel parking lot with only ESW. Park is clean but dusty so drive slow. Management friendly, helpful, and efficient. It is conveniently located behind Camping World and a Pilot/Flying J is nearby. This park is/was scheduled to become a KOA 12/01/14. When this happens, I suspect the price will go up substantially. Depending on price, I might stay here again when passing through.

Easy on/off I-40. There was some highway/train noise but tolerable. Site was level but a little tight. Utilities were no problem. This was our third time staying here and it is a good overnight stop.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. Check-in was speedy even with many rigs lined up to get into the park. Staff was efficient and professional. Asphalt roads and level, concrete sites with patio and pea gravel between sites. Utilities were good; water pressure seemed high so used regulator. WiFi worked great. When passing through, would definitely stay here again.

Rate (then add tax) reflects price advertised on a billboard before reaching the park. Make sure you ask for the "billboard" price. Park is barren but clean. Roads and sites were gravel but close to level. Area between sites was crushed gravel but full of goatheads, so watch your dogs. Utilities were good but water pressure seemed a little high so used a regulator. WiFi was great. They have water & electric locked so they give you a key. If you do not return the key when you leave, they will charge you an extra $10.00 on your credit card. Staff was pleasant and professional. Next time through would probably stay in Albuquerque.

Price reflects Passport America. All utilities were good. Roadway and parking sites were hardtop; close to level. A picnic table sat on crushed rock. Very handy to Grand Canyon train trip and doggie daycare was great. Didn't use cable but WiFi was good. The staff was efficient, professional, and very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Stayed here three nights. Park is near the town and a great base camp for Yosemite NP and surrounding mountain area. Site was adequate for 40' coach with 4 slide-outs & leveled nicely with small amount of tweeking. Utilities were good but water pressure seemed a little high so used a reducer. Our 3 wi-fi hotspots didn't work so paid $4.00 per day to use office wi-fi. Park has many large trees which made satellite reception difficult. Moved on last day and was able to hook-up. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is the best FamCamp that we've stayed at. All utilities worked great (with smokin' fast wi-fi) and the concrete pad was level. This was the longest site we've been in. After putting our 40' coach where I wanted it, we parked the car in front and had room for 2 more vehicles to park behind the coach. Check-in was quick, efficient and friendly, and you get an escort to your site. Because pull-throughs are oriented around circles, the sites were extremely spacious. When in the area, we will certainly stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here two months and nightly rate reflects 28-day months. We agree with what others have said about the park and believe it is the nicest in the Reno area, especially the views. The Wi-Fi has now been fixed and it is smokin' fast and reliable. Security cruises around often. Freeway and train noise was tolerable. Great deals at the casino cafe. Seems there is always something going on in the Reno area. We would stay here again and made reservations for next year.

Gravel roads and pads & sites with grill & picnic table. We camped in the lower level & found the sites long, wide & level with all utilities exceptional. Price reflects monthly rate & all utilities included. Propane available on site & discounted to residents. Management friendly, professional & accommodating. Although NOT a park issue, our satellite had occasional problems with the HD channels. The only possible negative might be the highway noise.

Date of Stay:

All the previous negative comments are true. The first site we were given was unlevel to the point I asked for another site and was cheerfully given one that was level, but very tight. As others stated, the staff is very professional, pleasant and helpful. I was able to get onto the Wi-Fi at 6:30 AM but 6:30 at night, forget it. This park is way over-priced. We will stay elsewhere when in Santa Fe.

Date of Stay:

When we arrived, our first site was blocked by a trailer. Our second site was so far off level the front tires were off the ground. At the third site, the auto levelers over-corrected and when we lowered them, the windshield cracked. We had paid for three nights, but after the windshield incident, we decided to just leave after two nights. management refunded one nights rate. She wasn't obligated to do so and we did appreciate it. All previous positive and negative comments that we read are absolutely true. However, we were able to get satellite TV, Wi-Fi bounced in and out but worked, and the traffic on Oak street wasn't an issue. They sprayed a chemical on the road and there was NO dust.

Date of Stay:

Great "overnighter". The manager was very helpful and accommodating. Sites are grass, but level. All utilities were good, and it was very quiet at night. It is a fair distance from Hwy 160 and you do have to travel several blocks on gravel city streets. We would stay here again if passing through.

Date of Stay:

As other have stated, the owners and staff are exceptional. Our 40'er barely fit and with 4 slides out it was very tight. However, considering the sparkling restrooms, flawless utilities, closeness to downtown Manitou Springs and other attractions, we would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Like others have stated, it's good for an overnighter. No one in the office so used self-registration. We made a reservation so we had a pull-through site assigned. After we got in the site and got a good look around, I wish I could have got my money back and drove on to Cheyenne. Although leveling was a challenge, we were successful. 50 amp was good, water spigot was right at ground level(?) and we did not use their sewer hook-up. This is what you would expect from a facility that is probably 95% workers in a myriad of RVs, stray dogs, rough looking characters. We will definitely not stay here again.
