I think this park is a great find. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The facilities were very clean and well kept. The spaces were nice sized pull throughs with room for slides. Full hook-ups included Wi-Fi & basic cable. The on-site laundry was one of the nicer ones that I've used. They also sold some convenience items in the office, like ice, milk, soda, etc., a nice thought that saved me a trip to the store a couple times. Don't be put off by the negative reviews out there, it's a nice place to stay. Yes, the lake was mostly dried up but that is no fault of the RV park, it's like that all over Kansas. There are mobile homes on the other side of the park but it was no different than any other mobile home park out there and definitely not a reason to feel unsafe. We stayed here for three weeks and we were very happy with our stay. We will return if in the area again.

This is all about location. The view is amazing! It's not far off the highway but far enough that you don't get all the noise. The RV sites are behind the Budget Host Derrick Motel, it was very easy to get to but parking was a little confusing. We arrived after dark and that made it more difficult. We saw a sign with an arrow pointing left down a driveway to the other side of the motel that said "RV Sites 6, 8,10,12,14,16" and an arrow pointing right towards the RV parking area that said "RV Sites 5, 7, 9,11,13,15." The sign is very confusing because there is no more parking down the driveway to the other side of the motel. Looking at the way the parking was laid out in daylight I imagine that the sign had probably been moved a little so that it was pointing down the driveway to the motel rather than pointing towards the circle driveway around the RV parking. I believe that the sign was meant to tell you to pull into the odd numbered sites from the left and to pull into the even numbered sites from the right. We didn't realize this when we were parking but we figured it out pretty quickly and it was easy enough to move over a spot. All The sites are nothing more than a slab of concrete with hook-ups to the side. The slabs are literally right next to each other but are staggered kind of like a checkerboard. That's why it would make sense to pull in from opposite directions. If everyone were to park going the same direction there would not be enough room, especially with slides. Even with everyone parked correctly I will admit that it is a little closer than other RV Parks that we have stayed at but it never ended up being a problem for us. We had full hookups, 50 amp service, cable, a strong Wi-Fi signal, and good water pressure. There is nothing fancy about the park but it was clean, a convenient location, and a great value for the area. Trinidad is a beautiful little town and if we are ever in the area again we will stay here.

I thought this was a nice little park. It was quiet; most of the people were just passing through for one night or staying over the weekend. We stayed two weeks and found that during the day we were the only ones there; of course it could be because we were there off season. There was a small park area which consisted of a swingset, horseshoe pit, and grass. Overall it seemed to be well kept and clean. I only have two small complaints. The first is that the water pressure was low at times, nothing too horrible but enough to be inconvenient. The second is that our particular site was overrun with weeds, every time I went out to walk the dogs I came in with itchy feet and legs because of the weeds. I saw someone mowing the grass on a couple of occasions and I'm not sure why they never came over to mow down the tall weeds near us. When it comes down to it neither of those things would deter us from staying here again. For $26 a night we got full hookups with 50 amp, strong Wi-Fi, and cable, I think it was a great deal. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Abilene.
