The park in situated right on the bank of the Mississippi River, you can watch barges from your back window. The trailer section has the back window to the river and the motorhome has the front. We had a long pull thru that probably could accommodate two of our 40 ft fiver. The sky is open for satellite and the utilities were good. The washers and dryers are FREE and trash is picked up at your rig daily. The staff were just wonderful, from the office, to the escort, and all we encountered. The GPS took us through West Memphis and the streets are pretty poor. Use instead the next exit to the east and the road is good and runs close to the entrance of the park. Shopping is nearby and Memphis, TN across the river has everything. This is one the best stays in our three years of full timing.

Date of Stay:

A good overnight stop close to a large lake, just off I40. The sites are a bit narrow, but there is plenty of maneuvering room. About 1/3 of the sites were semi-permanent construction workers, but the folks were friendly and it was quiet at night and easy to get back on the interstate the next morning. The office manager was friendly and fun to talk with.

Date of Stay:

A long pull thru with some large trees, but open enough for satellite dish. All utilities worked well and after a huge rain, the site drained well, too. We were going to stay one night, but extended to avoid bad weather further east. Free muffins are available in the mornings, along with newspaper. Friendly staff.

Nice quiet park on the outskirts of Amarillo. Far enough from the interstate to be quiet at night. The concrete pads are level and long and we stayed hooked up. The staff was friendly and efficient. Watch out for a couple of dips in the road near the entrance, we drug our landing gear, no damage, but just steer around them.

Well located on the west side of Albuquerque, this park is great for a few days. We had a long, level pull thru and all utilities worked well. The staff was friendly and helpful. Camping World is just across the freeway, if you need supplies. Some freeway noise, but certainly not objectionable.

Date of Stay:

Excellent overnight on the western edge of Gallup. We had a long pull thru, so we were able to stay hooked up. All utilities worked well. Open sky for satellite. This is a busy park, so arrive early or make reservations.

Rate reflects monthly, in high season plus electric. We were here for 4 months, avoiding winter. This a well-located park in North Phoenix, close to all services and Costco right out the back gate. We have found Desert Shadows to be very friendly, with as many activities as you care to do. Sites are level, with good utilities and a ton of citrus trees all around the park-free oranges, etc for the picking. The park staff is helpful and friendly.

Date of Stay:

A well laid out park with wide streets and angled pull thru sites-easy in and out. All utilities worked and were placed properly, with an open sky for satellite dish. Far enough away from the freeway to be quiet and there are several rv dealers close by if you need parts, etc. The park has a nice pool, but it was too chilly to use it when we were there. There is a bar/grill that serves well priced pub food and drinks. Not fine dining, but handy and tasty. They have completed some large solar structures that you can park under with plenty of overhead clearance. We wanted sun due to the lateness of the season, but other times it would be a very nice place to park when the temps are higher. Plenty of citrus trees for oranges, grapefruit, etc, when in season.

Price reflects SKP membership. The park is well-located off I10, but far enough away to be quiet at night. We arrived after a big rainstorm, so the gravel parking area was not muddy. Our pull thru was long enough to stay hooked up, level and the utilities were fine, with an open sky for dish. The staff were very friendly(no kidding, it IS an Escapees park)! The Saturday breakfast was inexpensive and a great place to meet some fellow rv'ers. Shopping and fuel are close by.

We stayed here on the $50.00 per week special and the next week at the reduced rate, $80.00 less 20%($67.00). You must be an Escapees member to stay here. Our site was very large and the back in easily accommodated our 39 ft fiver and truck. All utilities where very good, and worked properly, with a clear sky for dish. The park has a RO water system, therefore, great water! It is very quiet with dark night skies here, owing to its rural location between Carlsbad and Artesia. All services in both cities are available, including Wal Mart, restaurants, and a Chevy dealer that we needed. The SKP's could not have been more friendly and welcoming, a very nice community here, with many activities and get-togethers. This is a co-op park, so there are lots for long term lease, should you want to stay year around or for several months.

Nice park off I10, close to Old Mesilla, shopping , restaurants and fuel. This is a very well kept-up park where they rake the gravel each time someone leaves. There are rules here to keep the place looking good, not bothersome, but rules. Our site was on the end with picnic table. trees and shrubs. Open sky for satellite dish. Pretty quiet, despite being not too far off the interstate.

We needed one more night in Albuquerque and this excellent park was able to accommodate us on short notice-wonderful customer service! Our pull thru site was wide and long and everything worked properly. We were on an end spot, so we had additional space. They were very helpful in allowing us to drop the trailer along the entrance road while we had some tire work done on our truck.

Date of Stay:

Our pull thru site was towards the back of the park, in the older section and a little quieter than up front by busy I40. Everything worked properly and was clean and neat. Office staff was friendly and we were escorted to our site. We would have stayed longer, but the the Balloon Fiesta fills everything up around Albuquerque/Santa Fe.

Date of Stay:

This was just an overnight stop for us and the long, level pull thru allowed us to stay hooked up. Excellent owners here who work hard to please. All utilities worked properly and the sky is open for dish. The park fills in the afternoon and empties the next morning. The pool was closed for the season, but looked very nice. Some train and airport noise, but not bothersome.

Date of Stay:

We had a pull thru with water and electric that was level and spacious, with a patio slab and table. There is a dump on the way out. We would have stayed longer, but Moab is very crowded at this time of year. There is also a "resort" side of this park with more amenities. The park is away from the highway, so pretty quiet for being at the edge of Moab.
