This is a really nice little park in the middle of nowhere. At least it seems like know where until you start looking around. You're within driving distance to Lava Beds N.M., Medicine Lake and Glass Mountain. Be aware that there are no services of any kind for 18 miles so come well stocked. We thought this would be a 1 night stop over but stayed 4 nights. All sites are pull through and are all grass, even where you park. And this is really nice grass. A nice surprise for high desert and pine trees. There is a decent amount of distance between sites. Access to and movement throughout the park is easy even for large rigs although you'll be driving slowly after leaving the highway due to rough pavement. The sites are somewhat level. We used 3 blocks in the front to level. Not a problem. The water and sewer are located at the back and the electrical pedestal is toward the middle. A nice touch for those whose power is further forward. Their wifi is some of the best I've seen and our Verizon 4G worked well as did satellite. The owners are very nice, accommodating and laid back. The regular rate of $22 per night for full hookups (we paid $20 with Good Sam discount) is a steal. You pay separately for your electrical, just 20 cent per kilowatt. So use as much or as little as you want. Great park if you have a dog. They have a lot of land to walk on but also back up to Forest Service land to explore. We definitely will be back.

We came for a week but stayed for a month. Such a wonderful campground with amazing owners/managers. The sites are very large and most have a view of the private lake. Level gravel parking spot, each with a cement pad the length of the site and 18 - 20 feet of grass yard between neighbors. There are 3 restrooms that are very nice and actually large individual rooms with shower, sink and toilet. They are locked so you need a key that you "rent" for $5 refundable per stay. They are immaculate as is the laundry room which has three new washers and dryers. There is a beautiful pool and spa but it is not heated so we didn't use them this time of the year. We had friends visit and they rented one of the cabins. Wow! They are all built by the owner who is a contractor and they are amazing, nothing rustic here. The rate reflects the monthly rate. We would definitely stay here again!

This rate reflects Coast to Coast rate. We really enjoyed our time here. The first thing we saw as we pulled up to register was a herd of deer, 24 to be exact. We found out that they are there most of the day but especially in the morning and evenings. They are friendly enough to feed from a distance. When checking in we were asked how long we wanted to stay and answered a few days. I suspect that is why we were told to select a spot in the C or D loops as this area does not have full hookups. No sewers. That was fine for us as the D loop is loosely based on a large circle with open space in the middle so we felt less crowded. We could not see the lake but there are very few spots that can. There are trails to the lake and it is a good place to unleash your dog. The interior roads are gravel and kind of rough but manageable. Satellite and antenna worked well but we could not use our Tmobile cell at all.

The rate is for Coast to Coast at $15 + $2 for daily internet. This is a great park but is not for everyone. The valley is beautiful with lots of hiking trails and OHV trails. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. There are many long term and mid-term residents here, but all are friendly and hospitable. The owners are a wonderful family who work very hard on the property. The $2 rate for the internet is a steal as we found it to be the best to date on our (so far) 3 month trip. This place is great if you have dogs. The wide open valley (outside the fence) is available for letting your pooch off lease but you still need to bag your dog's droppings! The reason this great park may not be for everyone is that you need to drive on a gravel road for about 7 miles. That can be hard on some rigs. We had no problem but took it very slow! But if you're going to explore the area this adds to your travel time coming and going. The utilities were centrally located on the site so should work for most RV designs. The water pressure was sufficient. Cable is not available but our DirecTV satellite worked fine. Our T-Mobile did not. Also, although the sites are all pull throughs and have generous lengths and widths, they are gravel with no picnic tables or pads so outdoor seating is not ideal.

Wow!! I can't think of any reason not to give this park a 10. This is a membership park called Escapees. My Mother suggested joining, which we did about two weeks ago. Great park which is centrally located to many wonderful local destinations. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and so helpful. The long term residents are open and friendly. Big bonus is the off leash area just outside the property line that provides miles of trails. The whole park is either paved or decorative gravel so the dust is at a minimum. They really show pride of ownership here. The rate reflects a great deal. They were offering, for a weeks stay. $50 for first time visitors plus about $20 for one week for electrical.
