Didn't stay at this park, wouldn't stay at this park. Arrived in Las Cruces in the early afternoon, planning to stay at Hacienda who I had emailed that morning and was told they had space. Because it is located right next to the I-10, before going into the office and taking up the time of the staff, we wandered down one of the roads to see what the sound level was like in the area with the back-in sites we'd inquired about. On the way back to the office, we walked through one of the numerous empty pull-through sites. There were two staff members behind the counter when we walked in, we said hello and that we were looking for a back-in site for 3-4 days. Before they said hello, we were politely admonished for walking through one of the empty sites, breaking one of the park rules. We were then asked if we had a reservation and, when we said no, told that they didn't think they had a back-in space after two nights because the sites were booked by (with a tone) "people who had made reservations". After being chided for breaking a rule and then for not making a reservation we decided to find a less snooty place to stay.

We stayed at the KOA Fairplex while attending two different Pomona events -- the Pomona Horse Expo and the NHRA winter racing series. Proximity to the events was fabulous and an easy walk, but park staff had very little knowledge about just where to go to access the right Fairplex gates. The sites are easy to access pull-thru sites but very narrow, with the utilities located in the middle of the site. This meant we stepped out our door right next to the neighbor's sewer. For our purpose though, it worked just fine because we were away during the days and not spending much time outdoors. The park has a lot of nice trees and flowers and is pet friendly, with a short but nice walkway down one side for the dogs. Everything is clean and well-kept. The price reflects the event pricing for the NHRA weekend. It was expensive, but nice to be withing walking distance of our events.

We loved this park! We heard it was where boondockers go for a vacation and it's so true. With our solar panels and water capacity we don't need hook-ups and prefer to camp without them so the Fountain of Youth is ideal. They have a large dry camping area that is a little cozy side-side but very friendly and quiet. We heard very few generators running and when they did it was only for a short time. The swimming pools, hot pools, and steam rooms are all great and kept very clean. The restrooms and showers are also very clean as are all of the park facilities. The list of activities is long and varied and you can be as involved as you like. We found the park pet friendly with no restrictions on where you can walk your dogs. There are many trails just outside the park gates and they also have a small, fenced dog area within the resort. We would definitely stay at this resort again. We stayed a week but would plan at least two next time, maybe a month! The only real negative is that the internet offered by Tengo is terrible. Next time we'd be sure to have an alternative organized.
