USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our 2nd visit to this well-kept overnight park with level gravel sites. The park was empty when we arrived and full by dusk. The camp store, barbeque and ice cream social are nice options. Pool closed Labor Day. There is some train and aircraft noise but not too bad. The phone reservation and checkin process were redundant and slow: do you want water (y), 50 amp (y), sewer (y), cable (y), electric (y). Why ask if I want electric when I already said yes 50 amp? The checkin rep drew directions on the site map to site 31 by continuing straight from the entrance drive then a left hook turn between Oklahoma and Kansas; in a big rig with tow into the closest slot (could not be done)! So, we did a few laps around the park to correctly enter our site from the opposite direction. To exit the park; the rep drew a right hook turn (which could not be done in a big rig) instead of the straight shot back onto the entrance drive. We watched about a dozen big rigs go through the same exercise. Not 1 RV pulled directly into their slot; everyone would pull up, see they were approaching from the wrong direction, then do a few laps around the park. We watched rigs back into their pull thru apparently having been misdirected. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pendaries RV Resort, Rociada, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Pendaries is the most peaceful RV park we've experienced. The sites and trees are huge. There are plenty of places for serious hikes; some from the RV park property into the forest. The views from the steep hike to the old turquoise mine are gorgeous (access the trail between sites 28 and 29). Pendaries is more private residences than RV park. T-Mobile does not work in the park. There is no OTA TV but some sites do have a clear shot for satellite TV. The Pendaries golf resort across the street offers some seasonal restaurant opportunities and social functions like a car show, chili cook-off, etc. There is an abundance of nature and quiet; we've seen bears, turkeys, birds, etc. The park office offers a few camp store supplies, books and videos. There is a clubhouse and the private residence owners invite the RV park visitors to their social functions like pot luck dinner, ice cream social, etc. Everyone is very friendly. I esp. like that there are no campfires in Pendaries so my RV and lungs don't get filled up with smoke. We camped at Pendaries RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bastrop State Park, Bastrop, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Being a state park, it was a lot more quiet than other RV park options in Bastrop although we could hear and see route 71. I liked the 33.3 meter pool and swam almost daily. There are thousands of huge dead trees laying around from the great 2011 fire (rotting trees; great snake environment). I saw a coral snake close to our site and lots of rabbits. The location is good, less than 2 miles from historic downtown Bastrop. You can stay in the park for a maximum of 14 nights per visit. Visitors would have to pay the $5 park entry fee. There are nice walking trails however I picked up poison ivy or oak or sumac. Our site contained lots of old, little pieces of trash like bottle caps, scraps of paper, tinfoil, paper towels, plastic, etc. I saw that the park workers attempt to clean up the leftover big trash but the little trash is left to make the sites look unnatural. The major problem is ANTS, ANTS, ANTS! We had various types of ants, some biting. We went through three cans of spray and 8 traps and our motorhome is infested. I would wake up in the morning to ant swarms and trails from back to front of our motorhome inside and in our storage compartments. Having to use so much ant treatment was unpleasant for us and our cat. My skin is riddled with bites. Our asphalt site was very not level and we spent two days repositioning and driving up onto blocks to try to get level. Sewer was uphill; makes removing the black hose challenging. We noticed another motorhome fail at leveling who ended up leaving the park (I wonder if they got their non-refundable $25 deposit back). I went to the park office to find out if they had a chart, pictures or any information about animals and poisonous plants prevalent specifically in Bastrop State Park; the park office had zero specific information about known natural hazards. The park does sell general books about plants and animals but nothing specific to the park. No cable nor wifi. We won't stay here again in the summer as per ants. We camped at Bastrop State Park in a Motorhome.

If you like Italian food, go to Bassanos, less than 2 miles, right away as you might want to go there more than once and/or get some to freeze for later in your travels. Bassanos is reasonably priced and has a full menu plus pizza. Go to historic downtown and walk on and around Main Street. Try Maxines, Grace Millers, Neighbors and Viejos for food, drinks and music. Check out Bear Country golf driving range on route 71 that has a great bar, Mexican food, and music Fri - Sun.

Travelers World Campground, Clovis, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second overnight visit in the last three weeks. It is a easy stopping point for us, right on the highway. Sites are level, price is reasonable, park is clean and well-maintained and the owner is great. Last month when we were here we got propane onsite; so convenient. There are a few items in the camp store including a nice selection of ice cream. This visit I picked up some laundry detergent. I noticed a number of fresh picked garden vegetables on the office porch and learned they were there free for park guests. So in addition to our site, our $30 included a few dollars worth of garden-grown cucumbers, squash, peppers and okra. The restroom and showers were clean, laundry was available and there is a little workout/game room with a couple exercise machines, TV, books and games. I wish all our overnight stops were this easy. This park has a good feel because of the owner and the care shown in its operation. We camped at Travelers World Campground in a Motorhome.

Bastrop RV Park, Bastrop, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a confirmed reservation for a back-in site for 1 mo. @ $480/m0. as stated on the RV park website and reconfirmed on a recorded line one week before arrival. The office sign directed us to a tight circle in front of the owner's mansion which required us to unhitch and backup. There was no one to check us in even though we arrived during stated staffed office hours. No one was home nor manning checkin. The groundskeeper, via phone, directed us to park in a pull thru vs. our reserved back-in because "the previous person in your reserved site decided to stay longer". Hours later, after we had hooked up and unpacked, the office person finally showed up and told us we would need to pay $200 a wk. pull thru price (vs. confirmed $480/m0.) and move into a lesser-priced backin, if and when one opened up, and at the park's convenience. This is the 1st time ever that I arrived at an RV park with confirmed reservations only to be told that the previous tenants got to keep our confirmed site. We were overrun with ants in our pull thru; all ant types. We got ant trails in our RV, for the first time ever in our RVing history, and bites on our skin from fire ant types. The grounds person ran his large mower fast and right up to the sides of our motorhome spewing stones and debris against our RV. Our site was a few feet from the 71 highway and large truck noise, 24/7, meaning we had to have our AC and fan running 24/7. Bastrop RV Park is not an RV park at all but a trailer park for long-term residents. No picnic tables, no grills, no fire pits, no Internet, no TV. If you want TV, you need to drive 35 miles each way to Austin and setup an account for a cable box thru Spectrum with limited channels; then drive back and forth to return cable boxes. The bathrooms were dark and dank. We won't stay at this park again. We camped at Bastrop RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bar J Hitchin Post RV, Sweetwater, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We liked this park a lot; easy access from Interstate, well-maintained, grassy, shade trees, convenient to services. Its a very pretty setting on the side of a hill but the sites are pretty level. Yes, there is some highway and train noise but like everyone says, it was not too much of a problem. It was like white noise; noisy late afternoon/early evening but silent by the middle of the night; either the wind changed direction or nobody was driving on the highway in the middle of the night. The grounds and buildings were clean and stylish. Check-in was a little weird; the check-in person was not there when we arrived around 2 pm so a maintenance guy told us to pick a spot. The site we chose, #41, had a water leak so park maintenance suggested we move to another spot which we did not do because we had already put down the levelers, moved out the slides and started unpacking breakables. Park maintenance offered to run a hose from the next site over (which we declined because it looked like a regular hose; not one specifically designed to move drinking water; we had no idea how the hose had been used before). Sweetwater had basically no antenna TV but the park had limited free cable. We camped at Bar J Hitchin Post RV in a Motorhome.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Easy access from highway; park easy to maneuver; well-kept grounds; nice level stone sites. Price shown included an extra $2 for cable TV. Nice pull-thru; no need to unhook. Nice RVs there. Pretty quiet; some train noise but nothing that woke us up. Nice store and gift shop. Pool and on-site barbecues 6 nights a week; ice cream social every night. Looks like the park is expanding. We only stayed one night but next time we might plan a 2 night stay to give us a break from driving too many days in a row. Gallup has a lot of services supporting a reason to stay an extra night to restock and relax. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cotton Lane RV & Golf Resort (55+ park), Goodyear, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 2nd visit here for one night. Like the last time, it was empty (maybe because Goodyear hits 100+ degrees by May). Pull thrus were easy to navigate. Close to Interstate. We were a little surprised when we arrived at 3:08 pm to find that the office had closed at 3pm. I think there was a typo on one part of their website re: winter vs. summer office hours. Self check-in was easy but we did not get a wifi password. I would stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Cotton Lane RV & Golf Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Shady Grove RV Park, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great place for $19 (Good Sam discount) per night. The sites are level and nicely landscaped with stone, lava rock and a few trees. Hookups worked and we were provided with a satellite TV box with no deposit. Internet was intermittent but that's what I've come to expect from RV parks. I like the location of this park; right on the main drag near relief route. We first stayed at Shady Grove in 2012 when a lot of the trees were newly planted; the trees have flourished. The office staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

We went to Anytime Fitness, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and got some great bargains at Hastings Books that was having a going out of business sale. This RV park is about 15 miles from White Sands Monument and 5 miles from the Air and Space Museum. There were many pistachio/pecan/wine tasting places that we would have visited if we had more time. Lots of restaurants on the main drag.

Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was level, hookups were OK, wifi was bad; often cutting out. Satellite TV required a $100 deposit to borrow a satellite box plus programming. After our first night, we witnessed weed chemicals being sprayed around our site so we could not walk our cat outside (the chemical used is described as causing diarrhea and vomiting in pets). Each morning, we were awakened at 5 am when the permanent residents would pull out in their big, noisy trucks. The train whistled for 30 minutes continuously at 10 pm and midnight. We had to keep our windows closed as per the smell from the cows next door. Many flies around some of which moved into our coach. The property adjoining the park is a field of loud, heavy equipment being operated 40 feet from our site at 7 am. The ground was stone and white dirt that tracked easily in our RV. Our plastic picnic table was cracked with pieces of the table on the ground. Our picnic table had a few large holes in it and could cut skin if sat on. After the weed kill spraying, we asked if we could leave one day early and get a refund for our 3rd night. We were told that their accountant prohibits refunds even though we had paid cash. We ended up staying 2 nights but paid for 3. When making the reservation and when checking in, we asked if we could pay for 2 nights with a possibility of extension for 3 nights and were that they expected to fill up so if we wanted a third night, we had to lock in and checkin. The park was all but empty, not crowded at all. Looked like all left in the park were permanent or long term; not tourists. We camped at Trailer Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cattle Baron's steakhouse provided bad service and a tasteless, rubbery prime rib, 5 minutes after we ordered, served before the waiter brought a salad bar plate or wine. We think the prime rib was pre-cooked then microwaved. This is one of those restaurants where a waiter takes your order then someone drops off the food at your table. The restaurant felt like the chain that it is; kids for servers, cheap decor and fast food steak.

Cotton Lane RV & Golf Resort (55+ park), Goodyear, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an overnight stay for us in the heat of the summer. Cotton Lane has a section for pull throughs that is clean and neat. While the long pull throughs are narrow, since there were only three rigs there in the 100+ degree weather, we all had lots of empty spots between us. There was maintenance going on that started early in the morning, like around 6 am. but that was OK for us as we were already awake. We would have liked to take advantage of the swimming pool except it was way to hot to venture outside our RV to walk to the indoor pool. Cotton Lane was a great overnight spot; easy access inside the park; wide, paved roads. Lots of construction going on between the highway and the park but hopefully construction will be done soon. We camped at Cotton Lane RV & Golf Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This was our second visit to this RV park for a one night stop. Its a dirt and stone parking lot. There's no personality, perks or reason to stay at this RV park other than to park in dirt and stone en-route to somewhere else. Next time in Holbrook, AZ we will try out the Holbrook KOA; it looks nice from the road; trees and it has a pool. We camped at OK RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sky Mountain Resort RV Park, Chama, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is beautifully situated on the Rio Chama. We see deer daily. There are three types of site to choose from; premium river sites, canopy (under trees), and open pull-throughs that work good for satellite TV reception. We can walk to the campground/lodge next door for the restaurant. In late May, sticky buds dropped from the trees that stuck to our RV and towed. We like this campground so much we returned in July 2016. Mosquitoes are prevalent.

WiFi is typical campground WiFi; bring your own. No satellite TV; there are about 4 over-the-air English-speaking TV stations. We camped at Sky Mountain Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pismo Coast Village RV Resort, Pismo Beach, California

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a true resort with just a sand dune separating us from the beach. The check in person worked with us to choose an end slot. This resort had the best general store I've ever seen at an RV park plus a restaurant, arcade, heated pool, horseshoes, miniature golf and security. We so enjoyed riding our bicycles around the park and a short distance to the butterfly park and into downtown Pismo. We walked the beach, the pier and the dunes. The only problem was the very noisy maintenance. Every day we were there there were tree trimmers using electric saws then chipper/shredder machines. In addition to the returning tree trimmers, we also endured grass cutting and plumbing where workers were using jackhammers to breakup asphalt. It got quiet at night. I wish the person taking our phone reservation had informed us of this planned tree trimming that went on for days as we could have just as easily booked nights the following week instead of the dates of our specific stay. We had an end site so lots of dog walkers and probably a lot of dog pee on the grass around our site. We camped at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

$36 reflects weekly rate with no cable TV. Santee Lakes is a day-use county park with RV slots. The entrance is at an administration building with no sign for the RV park. Then, a mile drive to a gate where the lane for registered RV users is too small for a 40' so we lost some tire sidewall. The park is infested with ants. Yesterday, a coyote walked right up to our RV. The man-made lakes are small, dirty, smelly and overrun by ducks and duck excrement. This park appears to be a favorite a local, large weekend groups with small travel trailers; families who ignore their many kids who play everywhere except their own site, rather than being designed for large motorhomes. We awoke each day to the sound of a noisy motorcycle being warmed up by an apparent full-timer. Signage within the park is not good contributing to people driving the wrong way on one-way streets, and there are no site escorts. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Motorhome.
