We camped here in a 45' Motorhome. Clean, manicured landscaping, 1st Class all the way. Stopped here specifically to relax and enjoy the park. We chose a "fountain" site (facing east/setting sun behind us) and the water from the fountains is more relaxing than we could have ever imagined. Recommend fountain spot as the water helps mute the interstate highway noise, which we believe would be otherwise unpleasant.

Stayed one night while passing through. Was trying to find last minute campsite, called at about 5:50 PM after office had already closed and they answered from their campsite and were extremely nice and accommodating. Arrived about an hour and half later, and they walked over to the office to check us in. Staff is 10+ and the campsite is easy to navigate and the sites are concrete and setup well. Have both pull-through and back-in sites. Would definitely stop again, and even stay longer. We camped in 45 foot motorhome.

The good: clean, good roads, good size spaces, very good location. The not-so-good: Definitely over-rated as a "resort" and definitely over-priced. Reservations can be made on-line and an extra mandatory $10 per night home owner association fee is added to the nightly rate for all spaces. Very poor workout room - one elliptical and one treadmill. If you want to do a workout video, bring your VHS tapes for their old picture tube television. IMPORTANT - if you want to splurge for an ocean view site, be certain to NOT reserve spaces 163, 164, 165, or 167 as a "hedge" of pine trees blocks the view!

Glad we chose this park! Convenient to local attractions including those near Bend. The park itself is clean with nice sites. After spending time in parks in Wyoming and Idaho while enroute to this park, it is very nice having concrete pads and asphalt driveways. We were very tired of dust of and gravel. We are here for 9 nights and could not be more happy with the facility, staff and location. It is also very dog friendly :)

We are of a differing opinion of most reviews. We camped in our 45 foot motorhome and found the roads and spaces to be narrow. Yes, the campground "looks" nice enough, but the fact the roads were neglected was enough for us to never want to return. By neglect, the gravel roads were VERY MUCH in need of additional gravel. There were simply too many areas where gravel rock was missing and it was simply dirt. It was a constant dust storm when other vehicles drive in and out of the campground. No excuse for the poor road maintenance and needless dust storm. Could not enjoy sitting out under the pretty trees, also could not leave anything out on grass (campground policy) due to fact water every night. The nightly watering also gets on your coach and left hard water stains. Would never return and cannot recommend.

Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Restrooms / showers VERY clean. Landry room the same with excellent equipment. This would be an 10+++ if it had concrete pads and asphalt roads, but it does not, but was still more than adequate - can't have it all, all the time... The views within the park are awesome - mountains nearly surround the park. The location is excellent and super convenient for touring Rocky Mountain NP. No road noise noticed from the road leading into the park. A nice bonus is the fact the park's location does not require one to drive across / through the town of Estes Park which seems to have heavy traffic from 11:00 A. M. until after 7:00 P. M. One recommendation is to ask for a site toward the rear of the park in order to be most far away from in-park vehicle traffic which kicks up dirt/dust. Hope to return again. We stayed nine (9) nights and could see ourselves staying a month as nice park, town, restaurants, and no biting flies or other bugs.

Initially it was difficult to "see" beyond the MANY awful permanent resident RVs that were visibly in VERY poor condition and VERY run down - initially it was very uncomfortable. Have never before seen a park that allows permanent residents' RVs to be such eye-sores, however, if you can get beyond the initial shock, which we eventually did, the water, sewer, and electrical were a-ok as was the location for exploring the Aspen area.

$29 dollar rate is weekly w/ 50 amp full hookups. Extremely friendly staff and plenty sufficient non-resort campground. Short gravel drive to sites which are not large, but quite adequate - easy drive in and easy drive out. Power / electrical voltage excellent. Water very good and not hard. Bath house clean according to my wife's high standards. No real amenities other than excellent basics. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Stayed here a week in our 40' motorhome to explore Cripple Creek and surrounding area.

Price above reflects weekly rate. This was our first stay at Buckhorn Lake Resort and we found it to be an excellent park. It is well laid-out, well maintained, and in a scenic location. In addition to being a great park for touring nearby Kerrville, Bandera, and Fredericksburg, we could see why many stay for extended periods of time - because they offer many social activities for those who seek social activities.

This Texas state park is a well maintained park with clean restrooms/showers, friendly staff, and excellent hiking trails and scenery. It only offers a max of 30 amp electrical service and water - No sewer connections. This is a park we always wanted to visit, yet had not previously since it was not known as big rig friendly, yet I called and was told YES they could accommodate our 40' motorhome. There are about a half dozen sites deep enough to accommodate big rigs.

This park met our every need. Easy access, nice sites, friendly staff, clean campground and facilities. They have large dog run, plus a 3/4 mile long perimeter hiking / dog walking trail which was very considerate of them to build, both for us humans AND our dogs! Seems a lot of happy campers here! Could not want for more in a non-resort park.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park located close to all area attractions. Nice sites, friendly staff, with a very impressive RV parts section inside the park office. Roads are good asphalt and big rig friendly, with easy access from adjacent highway both in and out of park. Only negative was very hard water. Needed to buy a couple of gallons of spring water so coffee cream would dissolve and not froth. Would definitely stay here again and it would be our first choice in Ruidoso in the future after touring the area.

Date of Stay:

Very nice and well maintained park. Full hookups, paved, level sites, great utilities and friendly staff. We were along the canal toward the state park's beach which was a very pleasant one half mile walk. The state park also maintains their beach VERY well. The water is emerald green and the sand is like sugar. We were there during spring break. The park was 100% full, but the beach was 99% empty. Was so nice!

Date of Stay:

Very nice dry camping campground. NO WATER connections for any type of hose, so no re-filling or topping off RV water tanks. Very clean and very well maintained. Only downside is if you are not comfortable with narrow roads, as they are indeed narrow if your are in a large motorhome as we were. We stayed one night while passing through and would stay again if needed place to stop and were prepared to dry camp.

This is a very nice, good quality, well maintained campground with two separate buildings with satellite TV available, BBQ grills, billiards / pool table, DVD player, Sunday church service, and more. However, they still do not have quality Wi-Fi despite their advertised new top of the line system! According to the disclosure one must sign to get their free Wi-Fi log in (for one device only) it describes the basic free service as only being able to log on to the Internet. (Not sure why they bother with the free since it even states very limited service). That is their bronze service. Next is Silver Wi-Fi which states will allow you to surf the net and check email. After the bronze (free) did nothing for us as its speed was too limited do do anything, we jumped up and paid for the Gold service which was advertised to allow streaming Netflix etc, yet it too was a dismal failure with no such capability or reliability. Until they get the bugs worked out and they pay their provider for real Internet accessibility, do not expect to have reliable Wi-Fi, not even if you are willing to pay extra for their reported best connection. Again, even if it worked as advertised, you would be limited to one device only unless you are willing to pay for each additional device access. Wi-Fi here is sadly still a dream (see older reviews - it has always been poor or worse).
