Well treed, park-like, clean, quiet park with many family amenities (arcade, mini golf, pool, playground, shuffleboard and more). Adequate width gravel roads and wide sites with trees limbed well. Some sites have trees at end of driveway that make access tight. Shower plumbing rusty and unsightly, but shower walls nicely tiled and clean, as were toilets. Lots of open space for dog walking. Expensive for an overnight, 30 amp, no sewer site. Would look for cheaper place next time.

Date of Stay:

Noisy I-40 right next to park, not annoying inside with A/C on. All gravel roads and sites with exception of one concrete pull thru at entrance. Some nice sites next to lake, with boat ramp. Drained well after heavy rain. Clean, well maintained park. Would have rated an 8 but for freeway noise.

Date of Stay:

Rate is PA. Electricity is extra, but reasonably priced. Long drive from freeway, but well maintained, clean and quiet. Utilities worked well, including decent speed Wi-Fi. Hard packed gravel roads and sites (level). Nothing special, but very good value for an overnight stay. Would stay again.

Rate reflects Passport America. Main interior road is paved, roads to sites are grass/dirt, sites are narrow, short and unlevel grass. Park was all but empty, so our overnight in and out was not a problem. Wide open, clean, well maintained campground, adjacent to Colorado River. Utilities worked; no sewer at site - dump station available. Women's toilets were not clean in early morning, but when we checked out, office claimed they had been cleaned just after we attempted to use them. Good park if you want to boat on the river. We would stay again.

If you want a quiet, cheap park in Moab as a base to see and use the nearby national parks and outdoor recreation, this is it. But you have to put up with some reduced amenities. Roads and sites are gravel/sand that are fine when the wind is calm. When windy, the blowing sand coats everything outside, and creates inside grit. The park website claims "each site has a picnic table and fire pit" not disclosing these facilities must be shared with your adjoining pull-thru neighbor. Although large enough for three slide-outs, useable common area between sites is limited. Wi-fi exists, although virtually unusable because it is slow with many disconnects. No cable. No TV antenna reception since broadcasters are in Salt Lake City. About 1/3 of the pull-thrus are full-timers with much unsightly "outside storage" if that is an issue for you. Many tent campers, so bathroom/shower facilities are overwhelmed, but acceptable when cleaned. The paint on concrete shower walls and floors has unsightly scrape marks making them uninviting. On the plus side, all hook ups (30 amp) worked well, there is plenty of dog walking areas, playground for kids, decent laundry. We would stay again only if windy conditions were not forecast.

I was hesitant to stay since all sites are back-in, but, with the assistance of the owner, the experience was almost as easy as a pull-through. (Don't try it without him.) Park is immaculate, staff is friendly and helpful (they make you feel like family). Entire park is gravel, sites are level, but a little narrow, especially for multiple slides. If you like the look or sound of water, the creek side sites are great. Some park puddles during hard rain, but good drainage after. Good utilities (30 and 50 amp); high water pressure (use a regulator). AT&T worked fine. Antenna TV provided excellent reception. Dog walk area, and in-park gate to city park and walking trails. Laundry not open until 10 AM (to allow morning showers). This is the closest RV park to Manitou Springs attractions: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds. No campfires, no Wi-Fi, 40' rigs maximum, but if you want a quiet, pleasant, safe, comfortable base to sightsee, this is it.

Beautiful, extremely well maintained park, right on the Colorado River, with paved roads and most sites level gravel that drain well after rain. Both back-in and pull-thru available. Adjacent to I-70 so noisy traffic (did not disturb sleep, but we were at the farthest site away from freeway in Loop C). Train across the river runs several times a night until 11:00. Friendly, helpful rangers. No wi-fi, no TV antenna reception. AT&T works well. Good dog walking areas. Utilities work well; 30 amp only at all electric sites. Loop A is electric only (no city water, but water spigots available at park entrance and in loop); Loop B is tents only; Loops C & D are FHU. Fishing lake if so inclined. Great base for Grand Mesa touring or activities. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Old but clean park with gravel roads and level sites. October to mid-March in winter mode (no water or restrooms/showers) since owner winters in Texas. FHU the rest of the year. No cable or wifi, but owner has connected park antenna to every site (excellent reception). Utilities worked well. Office now in small trailer. Owner friendly and extremely helpful showing you to site and assisting with hook up if you so desire. Some puddles and soft spots after rain, but solid site surface. Pet friendly, although no designated dog walk. Not a resort, but a great place for an overnight.

This is a senior mobile home park with 5 short-term back-in RV spaces for those over 55. Paved roads and concrete pads. The mobile homes are old, but the sites and grounds are immaculate. Utilities work, but water in space 26 is 40 feet from faucet. No cable or wi-fi, but antenna provides good reception of many local channels. Restrooms and showers are available in the office, but by reservation only. Small dogs allowed for an added $5.00 charge, but there is a 1+ acre dog walk area. Only 15 minutes from downtown Kansas City so very convenient for sightseeing. Owner and manager are very friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

Make sure to enter and exit in the driveway next to the house (office); the other two are too steep for motorhomes or towables. Gravel roads and sites (most level) are not wide, but are negotiable; three concrete pads near the front. We pulled in after two days of rain and the roads and sites were drained well and solid as long as you stay on the gravel; grass strips between some sites was still pretty soft. The park is clean and well maintained and the full timers sites were tidy. Bathhouses were in a mixed condition. Toilets and sinks were clean. Showers had deteriorating paint and one had melted soap in the soap dish which made it appear dirty; floors needed a good wet mop. This and the rusty supply cupboard and cleaning products clustered around the unconcealed water heater made the bathhouses uninviting. Utilities worked and the free wi-fi and cable worked well. There are no picnic tables or fire rings, but our dogs loved the 5 open acres of grass. The adjacent Tyson plant (100 yards away) produced a constant low frequency rumble that was only noticeable outside; it makes baked goods, so no bad odors. The owner takes only cash or checks, but is friendly and helpful with local information. This is not a destination park, but as the only park in Fayetteville, it is an acceptable base to see the surrounding area. We would stay again.

This is an old, tree covered park, but well maintained except for fallen leaves, and picnic tables need paint. Some full-timers with typical outside storage items. Gravel roads with adequate travel width and high-branched trees. An eclectic mix of gravel, paved and concrete pads, all level. There are four short-term 30 amp pull-thrus with double-strip concrete pads; the three short-term 50 amp pull-thrus were gravel. It rained every day and night, but the roads and pads, with a few low spot exceptions, drained well leaving the surfaces useable. Utilities were serviceable; antenna TV reception was excellent. AT&T cell was adequate; park internet was adequate for web surfing when others were not using it. The indoor pool is available only in the summer. Some road noise, but quiet at night. Excellent value with PA. Would return.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. You can't play tennis every morning since the one court is switched between pickleball and tennis every other day (but courteous sharing builds character). The sites are wide and private with hedges between. The roads are paved and wide. A host guided us to our site and assisted and with backing in. There are three grassy off-leash dog areas that are well maintained as well as several wide sandy washes for dog walking. Free wifi was fast. The pool and two spas looked clean and inviting. There is a well equipped fitness room and many available activities. The residents, a combination of full-timers, snowbirds and transients, were friendly and the park was quiet. There was not only an impressive array of amenities and facilities, but also every thing was well maintained and operational. A park must be adjacent to a lake or ocean to receive a 10 rating from me, but this one would have deserved it but for this one absent amenity. Would definitely stay again.

Black Rock must be the orphan child of Joshua Tree National Park. Terrible is an insufficient negative description for the interior roads (narrow, windy, potholes in the asphalt roads, and erosive dips in the dirt roads). Joshua trees are fiberglass killers and they are not trimmed to accommodate RVs. Sites are dirt, and many are not level (even for tent campers), and you cannot determine which are which at time of reservation. Drinking water is available at various locations and at the dump station. Restrooms are plentiful and fire rings and picnic tables are provided. The rangers are courteous and helpful. The campground is clean, quiet and peaceful (except the generator hours), and beautiful if you like the high desert. We would not stay again.

Rate is senior discount after two-day PA rate was exhausted. Long, wide pull-thrus. All gravel with raised utility islands and a grass belt at the fence surrounding the dog walking area. Utilities worked at our site. Sewer was uphill to the utility island and inconvenient; had to insert blocks under hose support to drain. Friendly staff, clean park, freeway noise not intrusive (it's off I-10 not I-40). Terrible odor (from waste water plant?) when wind is eastward. It is not worth the regular rate, but we were forced to stay more days than PA allowed, waiting for truck repair. It is acceptable for an overnight stay at the PA rate.

Rate is Good Sam. Would have given an 8 but the laundry at the full-timer end of the park was unacceptable; three washers were broken and the one dryer used dried on hot even though the medium setting was selected. The doors on that laundry and adjacent bathroom were not latched, preventing the security implied by having a lock code. Also, the two aerobic machines in the advertised fitness room did not function. The three fenced dog runs were great and there was plenty of space and grass for do walking. The quiet setting under oak trees was pleasant. The small pool, spa and grounds were immaculate and the utilities were functional. The staff was friendly and helpful. Long pull-through concrete sites and paved roads. Would stay again.
