$30 for 30 amp FHU + $2 for 50 amp. Access is easy in/out from I-25, accommodates big rigs, good electricity, spacious sites, gravel roads. It’s a practical park without extra amenities. Location is close to I-25 with some/minimal road noise, walking distance to downtown Raton shopping. Sites are level, gravel, with grass in between. Lots of grass to walk pets. Free WiFi with average signal. Sites in front have some trees but they are tall, narrow, and don’t hang over sites so have minimal impediment to satellite reception. Owner lives on site, built campground in 2000, electricity has been updated since. We did not use the restrooms or showers but they looked fairly clean but dated with one shower per restroom. Laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers. Signage directing to restrooms/laundry was lacking. Hodge-podge of picnic tables at sites. Buildings could use a coat of paint. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a small (10 sites) unassuming roadside park. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Good “stopping spot” location between Amarillo & Wichita Falls. Located east side of Clarendon at city limits, next to US Route 287 on south side (expect normal highway noise). Best to access from west most driveway, and pull into large gravel area around back. Two sites on western side can work as pull-throughs. Gravel roads, a few trees, level sites with concrete pads for RV, grass between sites, mostly open for satellite, all sites 50 amp, sewer, water. Good electricity, good Verizon. Because on main highway other cell services also probably work. We found this park to be convenient for our overnight needs and will stop here again.

Rate less 10% military discount. This campground has location, location, location. Nice store with gas and nice restaurant. By far it is the nearest full-service RV Park/Lodge to Great Sand Dunes National Park (GSDNP camp sites are too small and no RV hook-ups so not our choice). RV sites are up on a rise behind store, accessed by long well-maintained gravel road. Further up hill is tent area, lodge/motel, cabins. Spectacular views of sand dunes to right and San Luis Valley in front. Because RV sites are in a single row, everyone gets a wonderful view out the front. Twenty sites can accommodate any size rig, all pull-through (approach from next to hill), good 30 some 50 amp, sewer (also dump station), gravel with small trees between, level, picnic table, grill, fire ring, limited playground, clean showers and laundry. Sites are fairly close together but as much length as you need. Grills and fire rings are between sites and much too close to RVs. Saw flames 2’ high from a grill that made me shudder. Would move if someone used fire ring next us. Verizon 5-bar 4G data. Buildings are well-built but old with new roofs, reminds me of a summer camp environment, nothing fancy but good enough. Family owned for 30 years, pleasant staff. Especially enjoyed watching afternoon storms come across valley and dunes. Good hiking nearby. Elevation 8,000 ft. Would definitely come back.

Rate cited is the Good Sam rate, credit cards accepted. On our way through Clovis we passed other RV parks but reviews decided us on “Travelers World RV Park”. It is everything we hoped. We’re not really picky but don’t want to park in a dusty field either. Easy access for big rigs. Sites are level, open, large, nice layout, electrical is modern. Good gravel base throughout the park which will help hold down the dust when windy. Clean, well maintained, full hookups with 50 amp, good Internet, 100 cable channels. Many permanents but plenty of available sites for us non-permanents. As for all of Clovis, there was traffic noise from the highway and some very mild stockyard smells (my husband never smelled anything) which did NOT require us closing up and turning on the air conditioning. We like trains so were not bothered by their toots. Later in the afternoon when it got warm, we closed up and turned on the AC. Noise and whiff of stockyards not noticeable then. Owners live on site, very nice and accommodating. Will stop here again.

We paid $25/night with cash. Easy access off Loop 289 Frontage Road, which is one way, so enter Frontage from 34th Street. Interior roads paved, level, just a few large trees, sites spacious with concrete pads, grass between, picnic tables. Clean restrooms and laundry. Grounds maintained. Free Internet Wi-Fi, good signal. Good Verizon Internet. Good off-air TV reception. About 100 sites – pull-through and back-in. Has nice in-ground storm shelter. A practical campground without a lot of frills, but clean and neat. Appears to have more permanents and overnighters but no clutter at sites. Good rates for extended stay. Some traffic noise from Loop 289 but not bad. Gander Mountain is next door. New Costco & Cabela less than mile away. Another park is next door (across from Costco) and is much larger with about same price. Like it here, would come back.

Like most KOAs, this was over-priced. Add insult to injury by charging $75 extra over holiday weekends: a rip off. Daily visitor fee too. Beautiful grassy grounds in the country, small rolling hills, quiet, gated entry, sites both wooded & open, most all with trees, and small lakes for swimming/fishing. Mostly paved roads but narrow & fair condition, marsh low-land areas can be very muddy along edges. Sites gravel w/grass, most not that level. Big rigs OK but need to trim back trees that scrape rigs. Roof satellite is problem at most sites because of trees, only a dozen sites OK for satellite reception. Has cable TV. Good Verizon, used our own internet, good 4G. Clean restrooms and laundry. Well-kept seasonals. Cabins, pavillions, game room, basketball court, playground, general store w/ice cream and fudge, weekend kid activities, and more. Good place for kids. Staff was very young, could only do basics but the owner was available and very helpful. Smoke from camp fires was a problem mostly on weekends, had to close up and run the AC. Country setting but major shopping and restaurants only 2-3 miles away. Checked out other campgrounds in area and this was best although there is not much to choose from. Would come here again because is convenient to visiting friends, but will choke on the price.

This is a very tired, unmaintained, fairly large campground with 70+ sites. However, it has LOCATION. Major shopping & restaurants a mile away. NYC is 50 miles. Close to I-80 Exit 27A but the last stretch on Old Ledgewood Rd. is twisty narrow road. Take your time. It’s quite doable. As with most campgrounds in this area, it is hilly with trees, and sites fit the topography. We were fortunate to get a site where our roof satellite worked. 98% seasonals & workers. Glad they kept a few sites for overnighters like us. The entrance was paved but some over-hanging branches. Signage is washed out & needed more strategically placed. Grounds are unkempt with weeds and small pieces of junk and litter. “Rustic” can be OK but buildings dilapidated with many cobwebs and junk strewn about. Even some broken windows. Tools and machinery created an eye sore. Restrooms somewhat clean but so old and unimproved, I wouldn’t want to shower there – cobwebs, openings in plaster, poor lighting, old fixtures. Two washers & three dryers on open porch behind office. Both washers got stuck on rinse cycle, dryers left clothes damp. Appears grandparents left it to kids and kids don’t seem to care about maintenance or improvements. Everything is OLD. Heard some areas had a bad washout in heavy rains and appear there is some new gravel in places, but not a lot. Roads are gravel with ruts and minor pot holes. Our overnight site was level, good 50 amp, full hookups, with fresh gravel. Good enough for our needs. We would come back but with lower expectations. Campgrounds are few in this area.

Passport America Rate $24. Is now called “Fort Bellefonte campground (CG)”, not “Gram and Pap’s Fort Bellefonte CG”. Convenient on/off I-80. Typical Pocono Mountain campground – old, terraced sites on side of hill, gravel roads & sites, many trees. But thankfully for us, a couple of sites are open enough to get satellite from our roof antenna. Good 50 amp electric. Overnighter sites could use some leveling. Restrooms old and dark, office old, dark, and damp smelling. Owners friendly and accommodating. Trash way off in far corner was not convenient. Entrance trees need to be cut back for larger rigs. Quiet. Nice view out over field. Would come back.

Passport America Rate, $24. TREES, lots of dense TREES. Two main roads are one-way, paved, mostly level, quite narrow, with trunks of trees very close to edges of slightly windy road, with some low hanging branches. It was an anxious, careful & slow drive to our site. Definitely not big rig friendly although we are only 36’. We arrived at our site with awnings and mirrors intact. But it was beautiful and the most truly “woodsy” campground we were ever in. RVs nestled everywhere between the trees, and sites mostly spacious. Fine for trimming trees in any way $275. Great place to chill out in the Pocono mountains.

Location is one of park's best assets. Right off I-759, a couple blocks from all kinds of shopping/restaurants, yet on a dead end peninsula road with country atmosphere, medium lake and next to Coosa River with boating. Plus swimming pool, shallow pool, splash pad, playground. Roads paved, gravel level sites, many in trees so our roof satellite limited to where we could park NOT under trees. Clean restrooms & laundry although air conditioning was minimal in that part of building, which was not in keeping with quality of rest of park. Also has a large storm shelter. Enjoyed our short stay. Would definitely come back and stay longer.

Very large old park w/paved roads, sand/gravel mostly level open sites, most w/concrete patios. Easy access. Large rigs OK. Sites 50/30/20 elec & water & some sewer. Dump stations & pump out trucks. Several restrooms, average cleanliness, one is obnoxious. Maybe half mobile homes. Sites on top and tiered down sides of hills down to river, makes it interesting, not usual cookie-cutter rectangular park. Satellite good but terrain against hill might get in way at a few sites. Verizon Wireless cell is 4-bar Extended Network. Some have problems with dropped cell calls. Data is overloaded, poor connectivity during day, worked sporadically or not at all, except middle of night. We hear extra cost WiFi doesn’t work well. Believe it is not a park problem but rather the town is overloaded. Easy in/out, location very close to center of town, just over London Bridge & on edge of Colorado River make this a nice park. Gate staff friendly & helpful. Also has a few boat docks & canoe/kayak rentals. We stayed 2 weeks in North Beach section on edge of river. Looked at other RV parks, many extremely tight, very close to neighbor, few river views, comparable pricing. Havasu is a vacation & seasonal destination, Jan & Feb very busy & parks mostly full so reservations recommended. $35-40-48/night, weekly, monthly, yearly rates. Will come back.

Park is very large and well laid out. Friendly and helpful owners and staff live on site. Sites are spacious with wide roadways. All sites and roadways are well groomed small gravel. Park is protected with gate code and / or security attendant. There are no large trees to block satellite TV reception from any site. Our Verizon cell phone and data worked OK. Park has good free Wi-Fi with antennas located around the park. Views of nearby mountains are fabulous from all sites. Prices are reasonable and good monthly rates are available. The town of Creede is a small Colorado mining town with lots of restaurants, shops, galleries, and a well-stocked grocery store. Many places to hike, see ghost towns, old mines, and pretty vistas, most accessible with regular automobiles. This area is also known for fishing and extensive 4-wheel-drive roads to well-known sites. New Disney 2013 Lone Ranger movie was partly filmed in Creede.

The park is 6 miles north of Durango on west side of highway. Grounds well maintained. Easy entry. Gravel roads & sites with grass between. Front sites are level and mostly open for satellite TV, plenty of room for slide-outs and have great views of the mountains. Sites in back part are on slight hill, closer together, in trees. Good electric, water & sewer, cable TV. Small pool closed. Tent for group use. Nice bathrooms, laundry, office. Small outdoor restaurant serves limited breakfast for reasonable cost. Large off-leash grassy dog exercise area. Office staff was difficult to work with, inflexible, and did not make us feel welcome. No smiles. All sites appear to be pre-assigned and they would not change an unsatisfactory site even if better site was available. Reservation system is problematic, not allowing campsite changes and not recording all reservations. Management does not to reply to all phone reservation messages. Wi-Fi didn't work but park management no help and said it works OK. Our Verizon 3G data service kept us connected. Grounds staff friendly and accommodating. Park management condones cutting grass right next to parked RVs allowing several RVs to be damaged from stones thrown from lawn mower.
