Rate reflects monthly rate divided by 30. This park is very small. The back-in sites are not level and not well kept. The only shade to be found is at the pull-thru sites but those are reserved for nightly-weekly, and not monthly. The staff are disorganized and grumpy. This place is probably okay for short-term stays but not for active people looking for month-long or longer accommodations.

The price is the monthly rate divided by 30. This place really is a RESORT. Wow! So clean, beautifully landscaped. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 was because of the lack of shade. But that's only because the landscaping is brand new and the trees are still small. The concrete sites are spacious, were level side to side, but not front-to-back (probably to accommodate melting snow). Sparkling pool and luxurious jacuzzi. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The laundry facility is top of the line (coin-op or credit card), and fairly priced. It's on Hwy 40, but highway noise is rarely heard. There are so many beautiful nearby places to hike, we ran out of time to hike all of them even though we were here a month. Two minutes away is a WalMart, Smith's, and a Day's Market. There are a couple of health food stores in town as well. We will definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects monthly rate divided by 30. We also paid 12 cents/kW hour electricity. Gravel sites, fairly level. Super quiet and peaceful. We were here in April and it was often windy, but the temperature was decent: 35- to 70-degree days; and 25- to 35-degree nights. This RV park is 20 minutes from Albuquerque, but it's almost like a different world. The Park is close to plenty of mountain hiking. Nearby Albuquerque is a lovely, clean city with plenty of good shopping, restaurants, museums, etc. The Park hosts were incredibly helpful and friendly. The sites were well maintained and spacious. The bathrooms and showers were closed due to the weather and water shortages. However, due to the overall atmosphere and location, we would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects monthly rate divided by 30. We also paid 16 cents/kW hour for electricity. This RV park hardly looks like an RV park from the street. The sites are terraced because the park is situated on an incline; however the sites (gravel) are fairly level. We have a 37' fifth wheel and had difficulty maneuvering in to the site due to the combination of incline and gravel, but we managed. Despite some difficulties and the less than clean bathroom and showers, we would stay here again because: 1) LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! On a regular basis, we saw elk crossing the small street to the forested mountainside, an occasional wolf, beautiful blue jays and red-breasted robins; 2) Quiet! Other than the sounds of wildlife, and the sound of our furnace, we heard nothing at night; 3) Friendly and accommodating (if often absent) staff. Cloudcroft is a quaint mountain town with a small population. Groceries are half an hour down the mountain in Alamogordo. My husband and I are hikers and we never ran out of places to hike. We were there in March and day time temperatures ranged from 30 to 60, night temperatures from 10 to 35. It's a little piece of paradise in the lush mountains of southern New Mexico.

The owners of this RV Park are some of the nicest I've met yet. The showers, bathrooms and laundry room are immaculate. There's a book exchange and a TV in the room off of the laundry room. We had a problem with the sewer and it was fixed within two hours. We stayed here one week in February of 2014: the area had suffered heavy rains for quite some time, so the ground was saturated. We got stuck in the mud, but four or five people staying at the park, as well as the owner, came and helped us out. The downside here was I-10 which was right next door and very loud all hours of the day and night: my husband had wear earplugs in order to sleep. Due to the sad state of Louisiana's roadways, we probably wouldn't go through Louisiana again in our travels. But, if we did, we would stay at Pioneer Acadian RV Park.

Stay anywhere but here. This place is a cramped filthy mess, filled with run-down FEMA trailers, and right next to the horrible-smelling oil refineries. At the entrance is a run-down convenience store that looks like crack-ho central. The inside of the park and the motel were no better. Each site had sewer vent stacks sticking out of the ground emitting noxious smells at eye level. I wouldn't stay there if they paid ME $20 a night.

This is the RV park to go to if you enjoy community activities, art, and bluegrass music. Though the sites were small, the park was well laid out. There's a resident artist there who makes everything look so relaxed and inviting. While we were there, there were several talented seasonal resident musicians who loved to get together Thurs, Fri, and Sat evenings to play blue grass and country music. There were weekly potlucks and Poker-Walks. All this really brought me out of my shell. Downtown Cedar Key is a mile walk down the road. If you go, make sure to stop at Kona Joe's and Away From The World Cafe. Both places are relaxing and serve great coffee. We stayed for a whole month and the daily rate came out to $20, which is not unreasonable. And the name Sunset Isle is very fitting. You have not seen a sunset until you've seen it at Sunset Isle RV Park. We will be back.

What a beautiful place! So many trees and right on Chassahowitzka River. Near the south bend in the river is a beautiful spring to swim in. We saw a family of manatee one day, and heard owls and foxes every night. Lots of good red fishing. The sites were spacious and well shaded. The only negatives were the no-see-ums, and the ubiquitous mud when it rained, and the very expensive washers and dryers ($2.25 each). Will be back.
