Tips for other Campers:

Good meals and wide selection of Navajo made craft goods at Jacob Lake Inn. If he is giving a talk during your stay, very insightful to attend one of Inn owner John Rich, Jr's evening sessions. Grandson of Inn's founder (Inn opened in 1923) and has 40+ years experience as gift shop's buyer. Good storyteller who respects the skills and mores of Navajo artisans with whom he has dealt for more than four decades.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

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

About 12 miles north of Carlsbad. 50 amp electric and water at most sites. A few also have sewer. Dump station along access road. Lots of room between sites. 200 yard path leads to lake edge, though not a good place to play in the lake. Very clean restrooms with showers (water saver heads). Sites all have a covered picnic table and BBQ grille. Limited vegetation in vicinity all covered with spines & thorns. Lake attracts a variety of birds. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Visited Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks as well as Living Desert Zoo & Gardens. Time well spent.

Really good BBQ at Red Chimney Pit BBQ in Carlsbad. Tender, flavorful ribs glazed with a slightly sweet sauce. Tasty pulled pork with house made mustard based sauce on the side.

Silver City KOA, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Staffers Joann and Ray were outgoing and helpful. Well kept grounds. Very clean restrooms. Large, clean dog area. Several hiking trails just outside the park. Site was large enough to accommodate both our 36' Motorhome and towed. Mix of monthly and nightly customers. Park also had "lodges", "cabins" and tent sites. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, about a very scenic 2 hour drive away. Make a loop of it by going through Mimbres and Pinos Altos, in whatever sequence you choose. We had a fabulous breakfast at 3 Questions Coffeehouse in Mimbres on way to dwellings and early dinner at Buckhorn Saloon in Altos Pinos on way back.

Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery has good brews plus pub fare with a New Mexican twist. A favorite of locals.

Mama Bear RV Park, Capitan, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendly proprietors. Tidy grounds. Full hookups (50 amps). Walking distance to restaurants and Smokey The Bear attractions. One of their pull-throughs easily accomodated our 36' motorhome with towed attached. Proprietor said their in-park turn around has been big enough to handle a 40 footer in the past. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mama Bear RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages, Pahrump, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Paved roads. Gravel sites with small concrete pad. Little to no shade. Too windy to use pool or spa, though they looked well maintained. Visited the on-site wine tasting room and purchased a couple bottles. Had excellent dinner in on-site Symphony's restaurant. We camped at Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Sparks Marina RV Park, Sparks, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Paved roads. Concrete pads separated by grass lawns. Tree at each site. Several restroom/shower buildings. Well maintained, friendly staff. Personal escort you to site. Far enough from freeway to be quiet. Liked this park enough that signed up on waiting list for a space during Reno's Hot August Nights festival. We camped at Sparks Marina RV Park in a Motorhome.

Neat and tidy. Helpful, courteous staff. Paved roads, level gravel parking pad, artificial turf sitting area with picnic bench. Tall trees on west side of park provide late afternoon shade.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here three times in last fifteen months. Helpful staff. Safe neighborhood. Immaculate grounds. Wide sites with screens/shrubbery between them. Paved interior roads with concrete curbs both sides. Level gravel sites. Full hookups. Good dogwalk area. Large heated hot tub. Clean laundry and restrooms. Private rooms with showers and lavatory. Scenic views of mountains east of city. Convenient access from I-10 (well, it will be again when construction is completed on I-10/Avenida de Mesilla intersection), but, there is some road noise (the only reason for rating a 9 instead of 10). Old Mesilla close enough to walk or ride bicycles to. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Oakwood RV Resort, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in one of the premium pull-thru sites, as did our friends in the site next to ours. Contrary to other reviews, our site was spacious, came with a picnic table sitting on a large concrete pad, and had trees on both sides to provide shade. Quiet location, about five minute drive from downtown Fredericksburg. Clean restrooms & showers. GREAT dog walk area. Added bonus for us was the park is adjacent to Street Dreams of Texas, a business buying/selling high performance cars & trucks displayed in a large (60+ vehicles?) indoor showroom. We would stay at Oakwood again. We camped at Oakwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Caverns of Sonora RV Park, Sonora, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Basic park with 20/30/50 amp power and water available. Pull-thru sites were on the narrow side, but plenty wide enough to extend our slides. No shade in the pull-thrus for the coach, but our spot was next to a large shade tree so were able to put our chairs under it to get out of the sun. The REAL attraction to this park though are the caverns and the quiet rural setting with peacocks and guinea hens roaming around. We arrived early enough in the day to take the 2 hour cave tour after setting up camp. Local, knowledgeable, passionate guide lead a small group of us through this very interesting cave complex. See Trip Advisor for reviews about the cave tour. We would stay here again We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Location! Location! Location! Very helpful proprietors doing business the old fashioned way - cash or check only, contact the manager via phone only (no website), his word is golden. Old, funky, and fun. Tons of great dining options within a short walk or bike ride. Plenty more options if using Austin's great bus service. Zilker Park is a 5 minute walk. Watching evening bat departure from Congress bridge is a 10 minute bike ride. Couple of block walk/ride to trails along Lady Bird Lake. As others have stated, most spaces occupied by full time residents. This is now our third day of five day stay. Every resident we have encountered has been friendly and helpful. One minor caveat - low hanging wires in many spots along Park's interior roads. Our 12'-9" high coach only tickled one wire though and that was in the middle of our space at the far back end of the Park. The manager lead the way to our spot and was very helpful in watching out for wires and tree branches along the way. This is our first, but will not be our last, trip to Austin. We would gladly stay at Pecan Grove again!! We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Junction/North Llano River RV Park, Junction, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second trip from AZ to TX. We have stayed at this park three times in last year, so we obviously like it. As others have stated, it is just far enough off I-10 to be quiet. Very helpful folks. Noticed they go around after campers check out to confirm, before they rent out that space again, that the departing party did indeed turn the power circuit breaker off. Just shows how attentive they are to little details that make staying there a pleasure. We have eaten BBQ from both Lum's and Cooper's. Lum's is only about a one block walk so we have eaten their 'cue twice. Both are good. Far better IMHO than any fast food joint that would be the other dining options in Junction. We are in Austin now. Who knows, maybe we will stay at Junction/North Llano on our way back to AZ next week! We camped at Junction/North Llano River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendly staff. We chose a wide and long pull-thru. Really nice private lav/toilet/shower rooms. Pool. Full access to all Lajitas Resort facilities(trails, golf course, riding stables, etc). We do not pull a towed, but were able to rent a Jeep from the Resort for the day to tour Big Bend National Park. Jeep rental rate is $99/day with 100 free miles. Not cheap, but we preferred seeing Big Bend this way instead of sitting on a local tour company's shuttle van. Being our first trip to this area, we only spent two nights. We are now considering coming back to spend a month (only $425) next winter. Tons of things to do in the area, IF you like spending time outdoors in the desert (which my wife and I do). Contrary to reports on some websites, Maverick Ranch does accept advance reservations over the phone. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Immaculate grounds. Bathrooms/showers cleaned daily. Roads and pull-throughs are paved. Areas not paved are covered with crushed rock, so no dust when wind blows and nothing to track into your motorhome. The on-site astronomical observatory is a real treat for about 12 or so campers each evening when skies are clear. Safeway and Ace Hardware right next door. US Post Office and Trailer Supply are across the street. WalMart a couple blocks away. Restaurants nearby too. Convenient base from which to visit Sonoita/Elgin wineries, Willcox wineries, Bisbee, Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns and other southeast Arizona attractions. We will stay at Butterfield again. One word of caution though about Benson in general - a couple dozen trains pass through each day and night. There is no place in Benson proper to get away from train noise. We got used to it. By our third (of five) nights at Butterfield we hardly paid any attention to the trains. We camped at Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory in a Motorhome.

Watchman Campground (NPS Campground), Zion National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a riverfront site the first three nights, then a standard site for two more nights. Very clean campground and restrooms. Fire rings in each site. Most sites have shrubbery between them to offer some privacy. Easy walk to the Visitor Center, which is also stopping point for the in-park shuttle buses. In-town shuttle buses can be boarded just across the Virgin River pedestrian bridge adjacent to the Visitor Center. The only word of caution would be about low hanging branches in some of the sites. We were told the park's goal is to keep branches trimmed to about 12' above the ground, but some of the sites did not look like they fully meet that goal. Our coach is 12'-10" high so we pay close attention to height restrictions (so, no, we did not enter the park from the east via the tunnel!). There is a water fill and dump station after passing through the gate but before entering the campground. We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
