Very run down facility. Low water pressure (30 psi). Had electrical issues with the 50 amp service. 103 volts on one leg, 137 volts on the other. Our electrical management system kept shutting down the power to prevent damage. Couldn't run our AC due to the issue. The office said it shouldn't be a problem because "the wiring is new". They told me there was no one available to work on it. The roads are dirt with no gravel. Good luck with the roads if it rains. No cable or over-the-air TV signal and too many trees for satellite signals. It's just an old run down park for nearly $50 per night.

Dirty muddy site that is too short and too narrow. Water pipe was leaking and making a mud puddle. Told the staff and they said they'd get to it when they could, but didn't during the two days we were there, they didn't fix it. No cable and too many trees for satellite. Over the air tv was very poor. Camp was very noisy with parties and kids well after quiet time of 11pm. But the busy road was worse. Very expensive too.

This park is very convenient to our family's location. It is very clean, and the staff was pretty friendly. I really liked the security gate to keep non-customers out. But there are some drawbacks. The sewer connection location is terrible. Who-ever designed it must not have an RV. They advertise as "pet friendly", but there is no dog park and you are prohibited from putting a small pen or fence outside your rig so you can sit outside with your doggie. The only option then is to use a leash. There is a really bad odor that comes up when the wind is blowing from the wrong direction. It's enough to make you nauseous when it's strong. Lots and lots of highway noise from I-215W The sprinklers come on at odd times and spray everything in your site including your RV. This WILL leave hard water spots on your RV which are difficult to get off. Since you are right next to a wet-lands, the mosquitos can be thick and aggressive at times. Make sure you have repellent with you if you want to spend any time outdoors.

This was one big mud pit after a small rain storm. There is very little gravel on the roads or in the sites. It was the muddiest mess I've ever seen. The dog park was nice, but needed to be cleaned, weeded and mowed.

The sites are long and wide and there is plenty of room for any sized RV. You won't be right on top of your neighbor. The 50 amp power was well regulated and no problems were noted on my electrical management system. The water pressure was 55 PSI. Check in was kind of slow, but the staff was nice. The park was clean for the most part, but there was quite a bit of dog manure at the entrance to the hiking trails. Also, the trash can in our row was stuffed full when we got there, and it was still full when we left two days later. The park is in a remote desert area which makes for nice quiet evenings with beautiful dark skies for star gazing. It's about a 10 minute drive to Tombstone or Karchner Caverns if you want to do a little sight seeing.

We stay at Windy Hill CG every March or April to coincide with bass spawn in Roosevelt lake. There are multiple loops named after desert animals in the Windy Hill campground. If you plan on using a generator, all of the loops except Coati have quiet time restrictions from 10pm to 8am. If you need to run a generator after those hours, Coati is the only one you are permitted to do so in. There is an exception during the summer months to allow campers to run their generators 24/7 due to the excessive heat and need for A/C. Several of the loops limit the size of RVs, but don't let that deter you. We stayed in Coati Loop which has a 30 foot limit. However, we set up in a site with our 36 foot FW, and still had enough room to park our truck and a friends car without encroaching on another site or the road. To camp here, you need to purchase a Tonto pass at a local business. You can also pre purchase your pass on-line so you don't have to hunt down a vendor or arrive after hours. Do a search for "Tonto Pass Online", and you'll see options for purchasing your pass. Failure to display your pass is a $100 fine. You must display a pass immediately upon parking, so don't set up camp, then go looking for a pass. Passes cost $6.00. They can also be purchased for $3.00 if you are 62 or over, or have an Access Pass. The restrooms and showers were spotless. The showers were a comfortable temperature and they had nice pressure. There are dumpsters located in each loop to collect your trash. If you are camping here, take the time to go see the Tonto Cliff Dwellings which are very close to the campground. It is a steep hike to get to them, but well worth the effort.

Caution - Very high water pressure in this park. I measured in excess of 100 PSI. Use a regulator or suffer possible plumbing damage. They warn you in their literature, but if you don't read it before you hook up, you could have quite a problem. This is a very clean park and it was quiet at night. The sites are some of the most level we've encountered. The lobby and all the facilities are top notch. The person checking us in was very businesslike, just not very outgoing. Please note that there is significant construction near the entrance to the park which can make it quite confusing when you get off the freeway. If you are exiting from west bound I-10, you'll come to a stop sign at the bottom of the ramp, but it's only a two way stop. We had to wait about 5 minutes for traffic to clear enough to make our turn. The park is near the Old Mesilla district, and there are some famous restaurants in the area. La Posta is a Mexican restaurant from 1939. But be prepared for a significant wait. The parking sites are graded gravel. Utilities were as follows: Water Pressure - 105 PSI (VERY HIGH). Electric - 50 amp, Line 1 - 117V, Line 2 113V. I'd stay here again.

Excellent park for an overnight stay or two. Very clean and roomy. There is nothing really extravagant about this park. It has a nice breeze because it is on a small hilltop. The views of the West Texas country are good. We have a large rig and had no problem getting into our site. The site was very level. Water pressure - 45 PSI. 50 amp power: Line 1 = 118V, Line 2 = 119V. Excellent satellite access. The owners were very friendly. All rigs in the park were newer and well kept. We didn't see any sign of permanent residents.

The folks running this park have to be about the friendliest and most helpful we've run into. They gave us great advice on a local restaurant along with a card for a free appetizer. The check in was easy and fast. The streets are wide, and the site was paved and level. The water pressure was 45 PSI, and the voltage was about 118. The site was wide and clean. There is easy access to get to New Orleans, but there is no public transportation. Ask the hosts for a map and directions to the French Quarter and parking. They will gladly accommodate you and make it much easier. The were two reasons I dropped the rating from a 10 to a 9. I can't fathom why I have to drive my very expensive RV over speed bumps (or speed dips in this park). It's tough enough on these rigs with all the rough roads. We don't need to have them beat up in the parks. The other reason was that the exit was not very clearly marked, and it was a little tight getting our long rig out. Be careful when you leave the park. Stay well to the right on the exit if you're turning left with a towed rig. Otherwise, you can get hung up on the entrance curb.

We really disliked this park. We can't figure out how the Good Sam directory gave it 10/10/10. The park is located in a run down suburb of Houston. The entrance had a dead opossum laying on the side of the road, and there was many of the properties along the entrance road are unkempt and unsightly. The check in process was very slow and tedious. You'd think that they'd never operated a computer before. The ladies at the front desk were nice enough though. If you want to come into the park after 8 PM, you need to give them a $25 deposit for an access key. Bring it back and get your money back. You'd think that in this day and age, they'd figure out how to have push button access codes available. I was assigned a pull-through site near the front of the park. Whatever you do, don't take one of these sites. This is the busiest park we've stayed at on our three month journey. The in and out traffic goes on all night long, so you have trucks and cars driving by your bedroom window all night long. All traffic had to go by our site since we were right on the corner. There was quite a bit of trash on our site when we arrived. Included were used band-aids (yuck) and a long piece of wire. Cigarette butts were everywhere. There appear to be lots of workers living here. The sites were level, the water pressure was 45 PSI, and the voltage was a little low at 109 on one leg of the 50 amp circuit. The other leg was 114. I would not stay here again.

Not a bad park at all. We had a 30A service. The voltage was 118V, and the water pressure was 35psi which is a little low. The configuration of the sites is a little odd, but manageable. We were able to park our 36' FW in our assigned site with plenty of room for our truck while un-hitched. Our site was off level by 3 inches. Management was very friendly and helpful. I guess it was bad luck, but we were surrounded by yappy little dogs. We couldn't step outside without them starting to bark incessantly. This was exascerbated by the fact that the owners had left their campsites and weren't there to control their mutts. (As you can probably tell, I'm not a "dog" lover). There was good wifi service, and we were able to obtain a sattelite signal from our campsite. There are quite a few trees in the park, so your sattelite reception may or may not work. There is cable in the park if you need it. We used the laundry. There were four washers and four dryers, and they all worked correctly. There are lots and lots of historical sites and attractions in the area that make this a great location to stay at. Louisville is just a short drive away, and there are distilleries and museums in every direction from the park. We'd stay here again.

We really enjoyed this park. It is spotless, quiet and very well laid out. The sites are spacious, and most of the rigs that stay here are higher quality. We didn't see any "permanent" residents. The office staff was very helpful, and made sure our stay was comfortable. The entrance is gated, which adds to our peace of mind about security. The neighborhood is kind of industrial. The mountain views are nice. It is extremely easy to get into the park and the sites, no matter how large your rig is. A couple of drawbacks. There is a refinery across the street, and if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction, there is an unpleasant smell. I'd also like to see them set up recycle bins in addition to dumpsters.

This park has a nice view of the lake and the Sierra Nevada mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is no 50 amp service available, but the 30 amp service was adequate for our needs. The grounds were very clean, and kudos to the park owners for setting up recycling bins. A couple of drawbacks. There were no pull-through sites, so we had to back our rig in. The sites are VERY close to each other. We were able to get our slides out, but it was tighter than most parks. There was no cable hookup in our site. If we'd had a long enough cable, we'd have been able to run it to an adjacent site, but we lacked the needed length. We tried to set up our portable satellite antenna, but due to the tightness of the campsites, we could not get a good view of the southern sky to accomplish this. Overall, this a a good site for an overnight stay. Make sure you have a long cable for the TV if needed.
