Check-in by a somewhat surly lady, we could not make her produce a smile. When you are viewing the campsite on Google Maps and see highway 40, an airport and the railroad nearby, don't worry. The road is quit during the night, the airport has only a few movements of private jets during the day and the railroad is running through a 100 ft deep valley behind the airport. No problems here. If you are making a reservation, ask for a site far away from the natural gas pipeline maintenance workers! They have the annoying habit to start their diesel trucks at 5 AM (yes: 5 AM), right below your bedroom window, leave them running for 15 minutes and then drive away to work. The 'quit hours' obviously don't count for them. Restrooms and showers are very clean, but the all doors inside are only 3 feet high, from your knees to your chest. And one men's restroom and one women's restroom had no door at all, we never saw that before. The Wi-Fi antenna is on the office building, so the signal strength is very much depending on the distance to the building and the number of RV's in between. We had a very weak signal at our site, but near the office Wi-Fi is very good.

What a beautiful campground just outside the nice village of Grand Lake, very close to the West entrance of Rocky Mountain NP! Spacious gravel sites with grass and trees all around. Wildlife viewing at your site, in our case a moose crossing the campground. About half the number of sites have no sewer connection, only water and electricity (like our site). Dumpsite available. Restrooms and showers were clean. Large TV-room and game room. Wi-Fi signal is weak in the park, you have to go to the office or TV-room for good connection, but you take that for granted in a park like this. After all we were lucky that the RV-parks on the East side of the mountains were fully booked! The prices are ridiculous over there, in Estes Park up to $70 a night. Are they cleaning your bathroom and changing the sheets for that price? We know for sure, next time again on this side of the mountains.

Staff is friendly and helpful. During our stay the park turned out to be a very busy and overcrowded place. Many families with (small) children, outnumbered only by the quantity of dogs, so you can definitely say the park is pet friendly. Two pools were not enough to accommodate all the swim enthusiasts. The 'Standard' sites are fairly level but rather small. There are larger sites available (close to the road), with prices up to $60 a night. Traffic noise is very audible during the night. Speed limit in the park is apparently for guests only, not for (cleaning) staff. Wi-Fi signal strength was fair, but the speed very slow.

Small park in town with narrow back-in sites. Don't worry, the guidance you get when backing-in is excellent! Friendly staff checking you in. Clean showers and (small) restrooms. Six washers and dryers, standard pricing. Park is well maintained, clean and quit. One big disadvantage: the park has no Wi-Fi. Maybe that is of less importance when you are an US-citizen with 3G/4G or hotspot-connection, but as a visitor from outside the USA you are more or less committed to Wi-Fi to escape the ridiculous roaming charges. Unfortunately, we booked for a week after reading the Apr 2015 review on this website, stating there was perfect Wi-Fi installed, but there isn't! We had, however, a very pleasant stay and there are numerous free Wi-Fi connections available in town, which is a five minutes' drive away by free shuttle bus (every 20 - 25 minutes). One tip for the staff: pretend to like your guests also on day of departure...

No office, but a golf cart mobile check-in. As discussed by phone, cash or check only. Friendly guy on duty escorted us to our small site (side-by-side). We had to share one picnic table with one neighbor and one sewer connection with the other. I hate side-by-side sites with strangers, especially when door-to-door distance is about 15 ft. Only ten sites are available at the actual river side, rest of the sites are situated on one big gravel 'parking lot', with trees providing some shade. No restrooms and showers. Park is nearby highway, but quit day and night and situated along a nice fast flowing (at this time anyway) stream. Wi-Fi excellent, strong signal and fast. We found the price of $ 42 high, compared to other camp grounds in Montrose with more and better amenities.

Beautiful park in town, close to Black Canyon NP. Efficient check-in. Self-park in very spacious gravel pull through sites with shady grass seating areas. Spotless air-conditioned restrooms and showers. Large pool and hot tub. Six washing machines and six dryers, $1.75 and $1.50 The free Wi-Fi (no limit on amount of devices) is reliable and pretty fast. Cable TV a little distorted. According to us, your best choice in Montrose.

Friendly and very helpful staff. Nice large level sites, unfortunately not many sites with full hookup. Really needs an investment to accomplish this. Restrooms and showers were clean and the amount of them just enough for the whole campground due to the many tent sites. The pool was clean and the house rule regarding minors swimming without supervision was well maintained. Good Wi-Fi. We had a lovely stay.

This large park has not too many sites for temporarily visitors. It is the only park in the vicinity where we got "no vacancy" as an answer, the first time we dropped by. Very large (and over 30 ft wide) fairly level back-in sites. Nice swimming pool and a small spa next to the recreation building where many activities are offered. In the building you'll also find the laundry room and clean restrooms and showers. No restrooms anywhere else in the park. The park is very quiet during the night, no annoying traffic, train or airplane noise. Park offers free open Wi-Fi, but that is not worth the name. Wi-Fi signal strength is bad and connection holds for about a minute or two. That's why the owner displays a sign: 'Wi-Fi connection not guaranteed'. Paid Wi-Fi available. Your full hookup has no cable and your antenna will pick up about six TV channels. We stayed a week in this very nice park, however the discounted price of $46 per night is (IMHO) rather expensive for the offered services.

Just outside town of Tombstone, situated next to highway US 80. The highway is not busy during night hours, so you may expect a quit night rest. Friendly and helpful owner tries to make and keep his guests happy. Inside the office there is also a small store with essential RV parts for sale at reasonable price. The park has fairly large gravel sites. Due to the fact that sites has been enlarged but the hookup points stayed at the same place, you might need long cables for electricity and cable TV and a really long water hose (extension for sale in the office). The permanent residents live on the outside row of the campground. Some of them think the campground regulations are not for them, i.e. barking dogs all day and not picking up after their dogs. But let this not keep you from staying here! Restrooms and showers are situated in an old, but freshly painted, building and are clean. Recreation room is better to be called a large TV-room. There is a nice small swimming pool open during summer only. The WiFi is good and fast, even at the most remote site of the campground. Free shuttle to town and back until 9PM. We had an enjoyable stay for a week.

Small park just outside the 'center' of the town. Very quit, day and night. All sites are level and spacious, some pull-trough's. Two restrooms and one shower for men and the same amount for women. All clean. Some RV parts for sale in the small office. DirecTV available for $ 2.50 per day. Flawless fast WiFi, even streaming is possible! Recommendable park.

Check-in and payment (cash or check only) a little chaotic. The owner, a very friendly lady, tries to do everything at the same time. She promised us a fairly good Wi-Fi, but that was not the case at all. We had our doubts already when we noticed guests sitting with laptops near the clubhouse. Later it became clear that over there even the (wired!) internet connection was slow. If you are planning to stay at this park, be prepared for no Wi-Fi at all. And be prepared for no TV also. No cable at the site and the nine channels you can receive over the air, are of bad quality in this area of Tucson. So bring your own satellite dish. The park itself is clean and has spacious level sites and offers some activities. No restrooms outside the clubhouse (closed after 5PM). We won't come here again until the Wi-Fi is upgraded.

Check-in the old fashioned way. No computer, just sticky notes on a large board! And it works just fine! No credit cards for payment, only cash or personal check. All (gravel) sites are level and have an average width. Beautiful, well maintained campground with nice landscaping and desert garden. Two restrooms with shower in main building, closed at night. Cable worked fine. Perfect fast Wi-Fi internet connection. Owner is a camper himself, so knows what guests are looking for!

Speedy check-in and help was offered to back up into the camp site. Paved roads and level, grassy, no shade sites. A few sites available next to the river. Situated 100 yards south of the 10, unfortunately. Highway sound hearable all day and especially at night when the wind dies down. Campground, pool, hot tub and restrooms are clean. Small store on campground with some food items, drinks and RV spare parts. For watching TV, you get a free digital box during your stay. Channels are of perfect quality! The free WiFi reception is good. Uninterrupted signal and fair speed.

Efficient and friendly check-in at this 55+ park. 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Nightly rate of $ 40 (as first time visitors), otherwise $ 50. Very spacious sites with concrete sitting area. No separate buildings for restrooms and showers, these are only available in clubhouse (closed after 10 PM). Four hot pools and very large pool area, crowded during some hours of the day. Many activities. The free WiFi was the best we encountered during our vacation so far. Slower connection during evening hours due to lots of active private networks, but no sudden disconnections.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in January for four nights. Friendly people at the counter at check-in. No allocated spots, just go and find a suitable spot yourself. There are different sizes available, so skip the narrow ones. Clean park with many permanent residents in an older part of the park. Swimming pool area very nice. Good landscaping. Hot pool area (4 pools) outdated, needs an upgrade. Laundry facility perfect and the restrooms are clean. Park advertises that WiFi is available. That is correct, but WiFi is provided by Tengo Internet (2 days free) and disconnects very often, many times already after a few minutes. In the evening speed is very slow.
