We have been here a half dozen times, but never managed to take notes on the prior visits. Sort of 2 campgrounds - the older part nicely landscaped with a good amount of shade, but problematic for big rigs (we fit in our prior coach at 37' barely) and the newer part with minimal landscaping and pretty much no shade (but our 44' fit nicely with toad). Adequate asphalt access roads though in some cases big rigs will need to swing wide on the turns. Older part is mostly level concrete sites with grass between the sites, newer part is mostly level concrete sites with gravel between the sites and a small concrete patio for the picnic table. Power ok, water pressure high (80+), did not use sewer this time. Wifi was sometimes decent and sometimes not. Slowdowns were not always at the usual time period (early evening). Verizon varied from ok to sluggish, but we only checked it when the campground wifi was sluggish. Satellite access no problem from new part, depends upon the site for the old part. Some recycling on site (nothing marked, but it seemed to be just aluminum cans). We will continue to stay here when in the Albuquerque area.

A relatively nice desert campground with great views. Far enough out of town to be mostly quiet with some highway noise. Single lane gravel access roads leading to mostly level gravel sites. Nicely spaced sites with picnic table and desert vegetation. Power ok although we did have one dropout on leg 2 (under 104v) over the course of a week. No A/C loading so no feel for how that would affect the power. Water psi low at 40, sewer ok, but not a threaded connection. Wifi was reasonable for a campground with occasional periods of sluggish bandwidth and frequent disconnects. Verizon access was pretty much of a joke (extended service 3g with 3 bars and very slow). We tried it once when the campground wifi was sluggish and it made the campground seem fast by comparison. No problem with satellite access. Recycle aluminum cans only. Electric is metered on weekly rates - we paid $20 for the week (but no heavy electric usage). We will stay here again.

Really nice for a KOA. The main access road is asphalt with good width. Interior roads are gravel. Gravel sites somewhat on the narrow side, but mostly level. Lots of trees and grass with nice places to sit in the shade. Campground appears to be well maintained. There was slight highway noise. Power ok (but did not load it), did not use water or sewer - campground claimed 40psi on water. Wifi was annoying - repeated logons required in some cases multiple times in an hour. Adequate speed in the day, usual crawl in the evening. Verizon was 3g with 3 bars and sluggish speed. Satellite access is iffy for fixed dishes. No recycle on site. We would probably stay here again, but not for an extended time.

A very pleasant oasis in the city. Very quiet even on a holiday weekend. Mostly decent asphalt access roads. Big rig access good except for the occasional tree needing trimming and the entrance station. Both lanes at the entrance station are rather narrow but doable with care in big rig. Sites are level concrete pads for rig, gravel patio with fire pit and picnic table. Grass and trees surround the sites with good separation between sites. Lots of paths for walking and biking. The RTD light rail station is a 1.5 mile walk along the trails. Power ok even under load, water 85psi, sewer ok. Wifi was good for a campground even when the campground full. Verizon was 3 bars, but did not check speed. Satellite access depends on site chosen. No onsite recycle. State park fees are assessed on top of campground fees ($63 for a week). We will stay here again.

Rather rundown campground sandwiched between I-70 with its attendant truck noise and the Eagle river. Reasonable asphalt access roads. Sites are badly worn with uneven asphalt and minimal landscaping. Oddly jack pads are required. Sites were mostly level with picnic table and fire ring. Power OK (but no A/C loading), did not use water (but we were warned about fluctuating water pressure), no sewer. WiFi is rather pitiful - poor signal strength and long page loads (sometimes several minutes). Verizon is no real alternative - one or 2 bars mostly 3G with occasional LTE connection and very slow speed. No issue with satellite access. We would consider staying here again for an overnight, but no more.

Very quiet, lovely campground set way back from the highway. Sort of two campground in one - the front part was nicely shaded with well kept grass, concrete pads for rig and gravel for the toad. And the back part (perhaps just under development?) - minimal shade, gravel access road, concrete pads for rig, some vegetation, but not at all as nice as the front part. Reasonable asphalt access roads. Sites are mostly level with concrete pad for rig, concrete patio, gravel parking area for toad, surrounding by grass and lots of large trees. No highway noise, but you can hear the train when it comes through (only 4 trains in a two week period). Power ok (with occasional A/C loading), water pressure good (60psi), sewer ok but we did have to use an extension. Wifi was very good for a campground - good signal strength and mostly good data rates. Did not have occasion to try the Verizon data service. Satellite access is problematic unless you have a portable dish. No recycling on site, but there is full recycling at the transfer station in Montrose. We will definitely stay here again.

Just an overnight this time. Not a lot of change from last year (see my review from October, 2014 for a lot of the details). A typical desert campground but with some trees. The power problems from last year appear to have been fixed and the flies were not a problem (unlike in October).

An ok campground next to I-15, but with decent sound blocking. The entrance/exit road can be problematic depending upon the size of rig and the traffic. The main access road is asphalt with room for a pair of rigs to pass, the other access roads are single lane with some interesting turns. The sites are alternating direction (shared utility pedestals), mostly level, some gravel, some grass. Site lengths vary - ours was just big enough for 44' class A plus toad parked at an angle. Depending upon the site, big rigs may have issues with getting into and out of the site. Power ok (no voltage drop even with heavy A/C load), water ok (80 psi so pressure regulator required), sewer ok. Wifi decent strength with speed ranging from adequate (daytime) to abysmal (multi-minute page load) at night. Verizon 2 bars with adequate data speed. Most sites have no problem with satellite access. We might stay here again when in the area, but will probably look around.

Nice small campground along the Snake River. Mostly reasonable gravel access roads. One row each of backins, pullthrus, and pullins. Mostly level gravel sites with concrete curbs on each side which call for careful maneuvering with a big rig. Wide grass area plus gravel parking space on porch side of site. Power ok (but did not use A/C), did not use other utilities. Wifi decent signal and speed with the usual slowdown at night. No issues with satellite access. Big rigs with toads should park right after the turn from 7th street, drop the toad then circle back around in the parking lot to enter the campground proper. Turning into the first row (for the backins and pullthrus) will present an issue for big rigs given the way the tree on the inside of the turn is intruding into the access road. We would stay here again.

A mostly quiet campground with a good number of mostly well trimmed trees. Some of the sites in the transient area are across from the dog park (can be occasionally noisy) and the dumpsters (some smell on hot days, but they do empty them frequently). Good wide asphalt access roads. Mostly level sites with loose gravel bordered by concrete curbs - some gravel areas were very narrow (our site had about a foot on either side, but some have inches to spare with a big class A. Sites have a concrete patio then a small strip of grass. Power ok even under heavy A/C load, water ok (55-60psi), sewer ok (watch out when parking as they are in the gravel area). Wifi is Tengo with decent signal strength and mostly adequate speed for a campground. Verizon was 3 bars, but did not check speed. Most sites would have no problem with satellite access, cable is analog. Full single stream recycling on site. We would stay here again.

Nicely shaded campground with good size trees. Asphalt access roads. Sites are a very soft stone & asphalt mix (jack pads probably necessary to have sufficient support). Sites seem to slope somewhat both front to back and side to side (front wheels barely touching and still not level front to front). Power ok, did not use other utilities (the office did say they had very high water pressure - 100psi). Did not use campground wifi ($2/day surcharge), but it had good signal strength. Verizon LTE was 2 bars with decent strength. Satellite access depends on site. We would probably stay here in the future.

Nice quiet park (very occasional truck noise). Asphalt access roads, concrete and gravel sites, mostly level, grass between sites and typically a tree. Use of awnings potentially problematic due to location of trees (we had one next to sliders on both sides). Big rigs going out the access road next to the pool will need to swing very wide to make the turn. Power ok (even with heavy ac load), water ok (65 psi), sewer ok (although ours was recessed into the ground enough to require a donut to raise the connection). Wifi decent for a campground (both strength and speed). Moderate Verizon signal, did not test speed as campground wifi was sufficient. No recycling. We will stay here again when in the area.

Nice park in a nice setting around a large pond. Somewhat tight for big rigs (but doable with care) - swing wide going into first left after entering park. Access roads asphalt - some decent width, some narrow. Decent size sites with a mix of asphalt (mainly the pullthrus) and concrete (mainly the back ins). Pullthrus have a significant slope towards the front - ok if in a short rig, but longer rigs will have problems leveling (we could not level in a 44' coach with our bumper up against the back of the site). Grass around sites with typically a privacy hedge and picnic table. Our site was rather noisy being that it was adjacent to the playground and the community yurt. Power ok (even with A/C loading), water pressure low - 35 psi, sewer ok but required an extension to access (at the very back of the pull thru site). Campground Wifi ranged from barely adequate to abysmal (tengo 1hr/day free, $13 / week). Verizon had moderate signal, but generally abysmal data rate (probably due to so many users avoiding the campground wifi). Satellite access no problem for most sites. Recycle glass, tin, aluminum, and newspaper on site. Unless we need city access on our next trip to the area, we will look elsewhere.

Very small, mostly quiet campground. Asphalt access roads (with some tight turns for big rigs) and asphalt sites with grass and gravel between sites. Mostly level sites are relatively narrow but not so much as to prevent use of awnings. Power ok (but no real load presented as we didn't use any A/C), water ok (40 psi), sewer ok (but probably requires extension - at least in the pull thru sites). Jack pads required, but they can supply if needed. Wifi was hit or miss - good signal strength with widely variable speed all the way down to abysmal (did not try the hardwired Cat-5e connection). Moderate Verizon cell signal (LTE) with decent data speeds. Satellite access no problem. Full recycling on site. For big rig access, park on the street running perpendicular behind the park, walk to the office to checkin, drop the toad, and consider backing into the site to avoid the tight turns in the interior of the park. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A relatively large urban campground with asphalt access roads (mostly single lane) and mostly level concrete sites with grass and some shade picnic table. Mostly good big rig manueverability but some care is required on some turns on the access roads and to avoid the lights on inside corner turning into pullthrus. Very limited space for toad hookup when leaving (and maneuvering in the campground with a toad in tow can be tight). Mostly quiet for an urban park - some road noise, some train noise, some plane noise (we were in the middle so not next to the road, not next to the tracks). Power ok even under load (110v during a heat wave with the park mostly full), water ok 60 psi, sewer ok. Wifi is tengo with good signal and decent speed (for tengo) most of the time. Verizon was 3 bars with ok speed. Sat access ok most sites. Full recycling on site. We will stay here again.
