This casino has constructed a new RV area with water and 50 amp electric. Sites are nice with plenty of room between rigs and are located along the west boundary of the property. Watertown is about 6 miles to the south and is the closest shopping. The casino is small and the staff very helpful. The dump station is on the north east corner of the hotel. Great bargain for a stopover or several days to see the area. Would stay again without a doubt. Location is the only reason this review is not a 10.

This is a very nice campground with the best of care and service. Sites are concrete and most all are back in. Wifi was excellent and all facilities were spotless and well maintained. Our site was very close to level and water, power and cable tv were all good. Watch where you take the dog!! Rules limit where pets are allowed. Check in was like checking into a 5 star hotel. This resort is located about 7 miles south of Rapid City and near most major local attractions. Gas and diesel is available at the resort at very reasonable prices.

Location is the limiting factor for our review. Well north of Reno, you have a drive to visit downtown Reno or the Tahoe area south of Reno. The casino at Bordertown is not a destination casino but more of a local bar, cafe with some slots. Not an actual benefit to staying at this campground. All utilities were great. The site was fine and required little leveling. The laundry facilities were good and the grounds were quiet. For the location I would have expected a little lower rate but other than that, we found it to be a good place to stay for several days. We would return when in the area.

This is a beautiful park indeed IF you want to get away from the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Facilities were spotless. All hookups were fine. The price is great. Dump station is easy to use. There is plenty of hiking, walking and fishing to keep you busy. Be prepared for: rough roads going out to the park, no wifi, very sketchy wireless service and active rattlesnakes. Just be prepared. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed everyday knowing that you must be vigilant and watch the trail or road in front of you. This campground would be a 10 if the roads were a bit better getting there. Its worth the trip!!

I get a little curious when I hear "quirkish" used to describe a park. This park IS quirkish! It is an old water park converted to accommodate rv spaces in all the strangest places. We were parked on top of what used to be a swimming pool. Sites are found in the strangest places and some are very difficult to get into so be careful!! Highly recommend you look at the site first!! The park is full of repeat visitors which is a testament to the friendly folks who keep coming back. The office staff is helpful and friendly and there seems to be some kind of activity or entertainment going on most of the time. This is a desert park! Numerous trails are accessible from the park so biking and hiking are big draws. Its about 30 minutes to downtown Tucson and 20 to local shopping. I would say this is a better destination park than overnight stop. It's just that far out of town and away from the interstates. Don't expect "new and shinny" or "state of the art", Desert Trails isn't that kind of place. If you like something thats just a little bit different this might be your kind of place!

Great campground but hard to get into. Make reservations well in advance. Some of the sites are a bite tough to level in. Great facilities. Great hiking and biking. Friendly staff. Can't go wrong! Would be a 10 the sites were a bit more level.

The positive: VERY clean and secure! Lots of activities if you are into that. Good location for the Yuma Area. The not so good; lots of rules!!! You will get chastised should you walk your dog down the wrong street!! Wifi is almost unusable. Rear pet gate is locked from 6 PM to 6 AM. Did I mention the rules?? LOTS of rules!! This park is really geared for the seasonal snowbirds but has many very large pull throughs near the front of the park. We noted that there always seemed to be open spots available. Water is nasty!! You can purchase 5 gal of water at the park vending station for $1. This is common in Yuma. There are many parks in Yuma that are half the price but without some of the activities. If all you need is a place to park with full hookups, you can find them for about $265 to $300 per month.

One of the best State parks we have encountered! Spotless, natural separation from other campsites, very quiet, great roads BUT hard to get a reservation unless your are months in advance of your stay. This park stays booked so plan your return at least 6 months prior. Great hiking and biking. Stables near by and shopping about 4 miles away. It doesn't get much better for a water/electric only site. Fire wood is .... crazy expensive! $5 gets you about 3 small sticks of wood.

Stopped here overnight and found Roadrunner to be a good park for our needs. Very level site, very friendly and helpful staff. the site was rather large and easy to navigate with a big rig. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for an overnight stop.

This is our second visit to the Texan and found it even better than the first time. Lots of room, good utilities, sparkling clean showers and restrooms. Very friendly management and very big rig friendly. Some of the sites are difficult to set up on but nothing a few "2 X's) wouldn't correct. Overall a great value for a very nice resort.

Great park with large sites and very big rig friendly. Sites very in size and slope so it is a good idea to drive through before you sign in. No septic at the sites but the dump station is close and easy to use. We were run out by heavy rains causing flooding but this is a rare occurrence. Service would have been excellent except that we were not notified of the evacuation until 6 hours after it was decided. Hard to deal with same day evacuation when you learn about it at 4PM! We would return without question! It's an oasis in the city..

This is a very well kept park occupied by many longer term rv's. Spaces are a little tight but didn't affect the quality of the stay. Pool looked great though we didn't partake. Laundry, exercise room and small library are clean and very nice. Propane and rv washing and waxing is available on site. Make reservations! This park seems to stay pretty full.

The new management here seems to be doing a great job of creating a clean family campground. Some of the roads are a bit tight to navigate with a big rig, so be careful. Turns and site entrances are a bit difficult in places. We rejected the first two assigned sites because they were not meant for big rigs. They have both treed sites and open areas for good satellite reception. Unhook toad in the front parking lot! Wi-Fi , water, sewer were all in good order. Folks in the office were very friendly and helpful. No doubt we would stay here again.

It seems common that the RV parks in Dawson, like many other cities, take full advantage of every foot of real estate to maximize rental space. We were packed in so tight that we could just extend our slides and that was it. The dog in the next site, occupied by a seasonal guest, was chained so that we had to ask that his tether be shortened so that we could get our dog in and out of the coach. For 3 days it wasn't a problem. If we had planned on staying a week it would have become an issue. The basics were all functional; good water, sewer and 30 amp power were fine. Cable TV was excellent but the property, over all, was not in the best of condition. We did visit the downtown RV park and it was in much the same state. In Dawson, this is how things work. The staff was less than friendly. Be sure you get the conversion rate!!

Date of Stay:

The 30 amp pull-through sites require a reservation. Plenty of 20 amp sites were available during our 2 day stay. The pull-through site we were in was just wide enough to put our slides out and that was it. Power was good but the dump station was locked when we needed it and the office closed so no dump for us! Given the location in remote Alaska, the overall impression of the facilities was good. The outhouse arrangement was good and spotless. Lots of folks panning, others just watching the RVs coming off of the Top of the World Highway. The choices are limited in Chicken but I would chose this campground on the next visit.
