Caballo Lake State Park, Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Our Appaloosa campground site was an end pull-out, not pull-through, so we had no neighbors behind us and none even close except in front of our truck and trailer. Evergreen trees acted as a windbreak, which was handy since it was very windy at times. The campground sits on a bluff overlooking the lake, so wind is common. But it is an inexpensive way to spend a few nights with hookups while snowbirding or traveling on I-25. New Mexico State Park campgrounds are our favorites of any of the states west of the Mississippi River. We camped at Caballo Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park), Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The nightly rate is based on our month-long snowbird stay from mid-January to mid-February, excluding electricity and propane costs. We have stayed there for three winters for varying lengths of time, but this was our longest. We have recommended Sunny Acres to numerous RV friends and will continue to stay there anytime we are in the vicinity. Las Cruces is much smaller than Tuscon or Phoenix for snowbirding. But that doesn't that everything snowbirders need isn't readily available. The Camping World in El Paso is less than 20 miles down I-10. And not being a big city means that biking on level ground to a grocery store, Walmart, or even downtown is possible. A variety of cultural events and concerts are available at the Rio Grande Theater and New Mexico State University. City museums in Las Cruces--art, nature & science, railroad--very good for a small city and are FREE! As a geologist, I especially enjoyed the strange, but beautiful, Zuhl Geological Collection at the NMSU Visitor's Center. There is also the exceptional NM Farm & Ranch Museum on the southeastern edge of town. A terrific central library is supplemented by multiple libraries at the university. Parks are numerous, as are recreation centers with indoor pools. We camped at Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Exploring La Mesilla is a fun way to spend a day, especially if dinner at La Posta is included. And Las Cruces makes a great base for day trips to White Sands National Monument, Alamogordo's Museum of Space History, the Inn at Cloudcroft, Silver City and the Gila Cliff Dwellings, and Hatch. In Texas, there are the nearby Franklin Mountains State Park's Aerial Tramway and War Eagles Museum, plus Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks are just a few hours away.

Cochiti Lake COE , Pena Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Unbelievable campground! Paved roads; long, paved pull-through and back-in FHU and W/E sites; covered picnic tables, nice restroom/shower buildings, and great views of the lake. Big flocks of sandhill cranes flew overhead on their way from Monte Vista NWR in CO to Bosque del Apache NWR near Socorro. You could hear them for miles as they circled Cochiti Lake. All this for $10/night with the Senior Pass for a campground within an easy commute of Santa Fe! Sure beats $40/night for noisy, crowded RV parks in town. We definitely be back and will tell everyone who will listen about this campground. We camped at Cochiti Lake COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Sugarite Canyon State Park, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

We knew about the fire ban and the boil water order before we arrived this year, so came better prepared than last August. Because there were 5 of us in our non-FHU site, we used the shower building across from the Visitor Center for the first time. It had two very busy, well-maintained private shower stalls (one wheelchair-accessible) in the men's room. Although it rained every afternoon we were there, our grandsons loved catching dozens of small perch and a few 9- to 14-inch trout in Lake Maloya. So, it was another enjoyable trip to our favorite New Mexico state park. We camped at Sugarite Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Elephant Butte Lake State Park, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful, inexpensive New Mexico State Park campground (South Monticello) on a bluff overlooking Elephant Butte Lake, the largest body of water in New Mexico. This CG is such a good find that this may be its first review because RVers familiar with it want to keep it a secret!

Although only about 9 miles from I-25, this CG feels very isolated. You need to come prepared, however, as there are no stores or fuel for ~15 miles (in the town of Elephant Butte). CG roads are paved, but sites are generally gravel with electric and water hookups at each site. Modern RV dump near CG entrance. Solar panels provide part of the power for the restrooms. A paved boat ramp to the lake and a paved boat trailer parking lot are adjacent, but can be closed if the seasonal lake level is too low. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sayre City Park Campground, Sayre, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Great overnight stop on I-40 between Ft. Smith and Amarillo. We pulled inyo the campground in late afternoon and there were only four other RVs there when we arrived. Several more came while we were having dinner, including a motorhome hauling a Model T in an enclosed trailer. After parking, he unloaded the Ford and he and his wife drove into town for dinner!

Our space had a big cottonwood tree on the west side that separated us from a >40-ft. 5th wheel. But neither of us bothered to unhook, so the spaces were at least 60 feet long. The only problem we had was with the RV dump--the on-road location could block a traffic lane if the road were busy. We would stay definitely here again and have already recommended this campground to relatives in Amarillo. We camped at Sayre City Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park), Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Our favorite private RV park in New Mexico. Only one site for one night was available when we made reservations, so we were assigned an easy in-out pull-thru at the end of a row. The site was not as shaded as the back-in sites we have had during other stays here, but was definitely more convenient for our short overnight. We will book earlier and stay longer next winter! We camped at Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park is in a fairly flat part of town where bike rides to the rec center, library, and grocery store are short, but on busy streets. The university and Old Mesilla are a bit far for us to ride bikes, but are just a short drive away.

Being in NM's second largest city is not like being in Arizona's second largest city! Las Cruces is small and everything an RVer might need is easily accessible.

Norton RV Park, Norton, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We had planned to stay at Prairie Dog State Park, but decided to stay in town after asking the librarian if Norton had an RV Park. She said that "there used to one south of town on State Street, but I don't know if it is still open. But, if it is open, it is right across the street from the best restaurant in town. And be sure to order their mashed potatoes--they can't be beat!" So, we drove south on State (US 283) and saw a faded sign for the Norton RV Park in front of a ramshackle house. A neighbor told us that "the owner lives in the house on the hill up the road." So, we paid the lady on the hill $20, spent a night in a level full hookup site, ate at "the best place in town" (and the mashed potatoes were good), and, while sitting on our sofa and gazing out the back window, watched the Norton High JV football team run all over the poor visiting Colby HS JV team. Now how can you beat a pull-through full hookup RV site, a good dinner, and entertainment for that price? Well, that price plus the cost of two dinners! We camped at Norton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Creekview Campground, Edgerton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We saw a sign on I-90 for this campground late one afternoon and decided to stop. The campground is actually in the village of Albion and is part of the owner's development of their family farm, along with a par 3 golf course just to the north. The campground is pretty rustic, the sites are all grass, and the road is gravel, but the hookups worked well. The noise from the nearby interstate was noticeable, but the lack of many other campers on the night we were there and the rural scene--creek, pond, foundation of the barn, open meadow, big trees along the creek--more than made up for it. We would stay here again if we happened to be in the area. We camped at Creekview Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beaver Creek Recreation Area, Linton, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $7.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a long, back-in, 30 amp electric site with good shade across the road from the lake. However, we got there two days after they turned the water off, even at the restrooms and dump, for the winter, although the weather was warm and sunny and the Web site said the water would be on until Oct. 1. Due to the distance back to Linton, we really "dry camped" for the night with only a few gallons of water in jugs that we always have with us. There was no additional reduction in the nightly rate despite not having water or a dump available. We camped at Beaver Creek Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Bessey Recreation Complex Campground USFS, Halsey, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

You just can't beat a shaded, gravel, 30A electric site with no visible neighbors, a potable water faucet (threaded!) within hose distance, and a sanitary dump for $5.50/night with a Federal Senior Pass! If this campground were in Durango or Aspen, Colorado, the U.S. Forest Service would charge $30-40/night and it would be full every night. So there's a little train noise--we use ear plugs and a small electric fan to take care of that problem. We camped at Bessey Recreation Complex Campground USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Beacon RV Park, Saint Joseph, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Old RV park that is really a "trailer park" with permanent RVs instead of mobile homes. There are, therefore, so many extra vehicles that they are parked all along both sides of the park's roads. We had no reservation but got a full hook-up, pull-thru with a deteriorating concrete drive, a small patio, and a little grass. But each pull-thru was designed for two RVs back to back, so another RV backed in behind us a hour or so later. The next morning we had to ask the permanent next-door RV owner to move his truck so we could get out of our "pull-thru" into the road to exit the park. We would not ever stay at this park again! We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for only 1 night and toured the Mark Twain house and museum the next morning. We had a reasonably long, gravel and dirt, pull-through, full hook-up site at the end of a row. It was shaded by a large tree on the driver's side of the site. So, we had a little privacy and a very quiet night in the large, but only half-full, campground. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Fish Creek Campground is huge, but most of it was closed, along with the campground office when we arrived in the middle of a September afternoon. So, we had to use self check-in. Nearly all the other sites were occupied by seasonal RVs, but few of their owners were actually there. Rain had fallen just before we arrived and the sites were wet and muddy. We camped at Moose Mountain Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wasagaming Campground (Parks Canada), Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Our full hook-up, pull-thru site was much better than our national park RV sites at Banff Tunnel Mountain, Lake Louise, and Jasper Whistler's campgrounds. Some tree/shrub screening between sites; nearby clean, heated restrooms; great WiFi, and walking distance to town. The town has a beautiful lake setting with extremely clear water, a long boat dock/marina, a swim beach, and rental and tour boats. Although we were there on a beautiful, warm fall weekend, the town was nearly empty of visitors. And, away from town, wildlife abounds, including a bull moose that crossed Route 10 right in front of us as we were leaving Moon Lake. Wonderful park, nice town, great campground! We camped at Wasagaming Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.
