If you need to be right in Denver, this is the park for you. Traffic was a little intense getting here, and backing in was strange. Their monthly sites are scattered throughout the park and are former mobile home lots. So backing in you will need to straddle the water and sewer connections, then crawl under the RV to hook them up. The short term sites however, are much easier and nicer. Wi-Fi doesn't work, and clubhouse is under construction. Laundry room is nice, and cheap. Free day old bread from Panera Bread every Tuesday. This is the first campground I've been to where every site has their own mailbox in front of it. Although this is a 55+park, they let us stay by the month. It is surprisingly quiet. No dogs allowed. Checks only.

This is a pretty park, in fact the only RV park in Lincoln. So, they can charge whatever they want! The place is not a dump. Get a site towards the back, you'll enjoy yourself more than the sites next to the office. Lovely shade trees, all campers kept up nice, friendly service. We stayed during the off season, so although the pool is closed, there is a small indoor hot tub they don't even tell you about at check-in. That was the highlight for us. Just a few minutes drive from downtown Lincoln. (Don't miss the capital tour.) The wi-fi is excellent; many antennas throughout the park, as well as cable tv. Overall, a comfortable stop, so we will be back. You can even order a crappy frozen pizza from the office for $10 and they'll deliver it to your site. Beware, during the college football games the price goes UP.

Surprised to be the first reviewer of the park as it has been in business for 50 years. Park is mostly seasonal campers with a few sites left for shorter stays. It does get loud in the evenings around the campfires, but that is just the atmosphere of the park. Difficult to get cell/internet/tv reception here. Coin-op showers! There are two small lakes you can walk to from the campground for swimming/fishing. Hookups are quite dated and only 30 amp. Our biggest problem here was water quality. It is extremely rusty, and you will need to get an additional water filtration/softener of some sort to avoid problems. Convenient location, and the best coffee shop in town is next door.

Nightly rate reflects price paid for a month and includes electric. The park is very clean and organized, the lawn mowers are going constantly. Nice gravel roads, and this is the best bet in the area that I know of for big rigs. I rate it a 10 because of the value, and convenient location. On the downside, the Wi-Fi barely worked the 2 months we were here, poor TV reception, and no pool. The park is very, very quiet even when fully occupied. There are very few kids here, although they do have a playground. A nice laundry room available.

This park is a great deal! They are currently spending a fortune on landscape/rockscape, so the park actually looks better. Plenty of pull thrus available, although they could be a bit longer. Nice mountain views, very quiet, easy drive to town. Cash or check only. Best deal in the area, hurry and get here before the rates go up. Cute little cabins available too.

If you are taking an RV here, be sure to clarify the best road to the beach, as we saw many many people getting stuck in the sand (stay to the far left on the way down). A better alternative for us, was parking up top by the dump station. There are nice views, and although no hook-ups, it is only $10 a night. A 15 minute drive to town, and remember you are in Utah's time zone. I didn't see any "showers" here except for the cold outdoor ones for rinsing sand.

We had been wanting to stay here for a long time. Concrete slabs with views of Lake Powell from most sites. There are small pickers everywhere here so do not walk in the gravel/bushes. We got 2 flat bike tires immediately, so add that into the cost of the already outrageous $48 a night. There is laundry onsite, but it is packed constantly. Had to wait til 2am to get in. They had a lot of empty sites here, probably due to the high price point. I feel they are about $10 overpriced, which is why Walmart parking lot is full, and they are not. WiFi didn't work. You do get access to the pool at the hotel a few miles away.

Very basic campground, but easy enough to get in/out with pull thrus. Simply drive in and pick a site, then walk across the street to the gift shop to pay. The gift shop is huge, and you absolutely must try the Navajo tacos and the Navajo stew they serve at the restaurant. Very authentic fry bread fluffy and crispy served with warm honey. Great stop for a day trip to the south rim. Could not get any internet/cell reception with our devices. They observe the same time zone as Arizona, although on Navajo land. We'll be back for the tacos even if we don't stay overnight again.

Fast check in, they seem to assign overnighters to pull thrus in the back of the park. Some pot holes to deal with, cracked slabs, and out dated utility boxes. If they were to repave the roads your rate would be much higher, so we don't mind. However, it was a great deal near downtown, some nice pines as well, so we enjoyed it and will be back. A restaurant is onsite we didn't get to try. If you want to see Flagstaff, and have easy freeway access, this is your place.

Great location right in town. Can walk to grocery and restaurants. We had a site in the back with great red rock scenery. Pull thrus available, showers were not the most pretty, but clean. Disappointed the pool was not open for memorial day weekend when it was 90 degrees. Wifi worked pretty good. Also we never saw a "Crazy Horse" on site. If you are trying for the Wave hike lottery, the BLM office is nearby. We stayed for over a week, and applied every day until we won. If you don't win, there are plenty of national parks and scenery to enjoy. They do take credit cards, and the management was helpful.

This is a nicely manicured park with concrete slabs and pull-thrus (which cost extra). Lots of stuff was broken when we were here. The phones and WiFi were down, the hot tub was broken, the pool was too cold to swim in, but they still want a fortune to stay here, in the middle of nowhere. If you are visiting the casino, there is a free shuttle. Best attraction in the area is Fossil Creek. The check-in is excruciating. Took over 20 minutes even with no one ahead of us. They ask for way too much unnecessary personal information and hand type it in. Next time, we will simply stay in the casino lot next door for free than pay these prices.

There are over 600 spaces at the park, and only 3 shower stalls that close at 10pm. Also no free wi-fi at the sites, but you can reach it at the pool. There is no cable but a few channels over the air. Very low crime at the park, we never even locked up our bikes. Upwards of 90% of the park is retirees living in park models. A large indoor pool and hot tub is very nice, as well as a large laundry room. You can rent a gate opener to allow easy entry/exit through the back gate by Costco. The spaces are tight, no shade or grass, and this place is absolutely sold out in the winter.

Nothing to do here except walk around and look at the pit toilets. There is nothing to do in the surrounding area, other than the VLA. It was extremely cold at night 19 degrees in January due to the elevation. Our RV had trouble starting in the AM. No utilities, but for the price it can't be beat. We were the only camper here, and it is dark and lonely at night. Upon leaving, noticed there is WiFi reachable from the little cabin where you register. It is self registration. Our 40 ft actually fit just fine in a pull thru site.

This is probably your best bet in Socorro for a short stay. We saw a few other parks in town that were very full and difficult to get in, or to reach by phone. If you have a big rig, this is the only place I'd consider. Located right in town, and right off the highway. Although there are many permanents here, it was fine. We got a pull-thru site. Utilities are very low to the ground, not the best but ok. Pool was closed this time of year. This is the first RV park I've been to with a hair salon onsite. Best attraction is San Larenzo Canyon, and the bird refuge. El Camino restaurant was great, as was the local brewery restaurant. We unexpectedly loved our stay in Socorro!

Date of Stay:

We stayed during the slow season, so only one loop was open. There was only one or two others camping there, but they placed us right next to another rig. Had to drive back 5 miles to the office to get another site assigned. Otherwise, nice paved sites, shaded. It was icy here in January. The lake was OK, not that impressive. Close enough to town.
