We booked a monthly stay at Mission Bell based on the website photos and information. When we pulled in we were sorely disappointed with almost every aspect of the park. This is a very old park that has long since fallen into disrepair. Its maintained in "working order" but is badly in need of updating. The website goes on about all the buildings and facilities which are present but not well maintained. The WiFi is only available in two spots for the entire park. One of the locations is the library which is so small and dank I couldn't stay there more than a few minutes. The restrooms/showers are very small and not well done. The ones we used in our two nights stay (not the scheduled month) smelled of mildew or something. The spaces are very small and not at all as expected. The tiny concrete patio was being overtaken by weeds and grass that are mowed but otherwise unkempt. Watch out for sand burrs. The wooden electrical post on our site was original to the park and about to fall over. The park amounts to about half old trailers and newer park model trailers of permanent residents. The roads are extremely narrow, rough asphalt. The park is poorly lit and backs up to what sounds like a discotheque. We were treated to very loud, thumping music late into the night. Beware they WILL NOT issue any kind of refund if you decide to leave early!!!!! There are other much better kept parks in the area. After checking in and getting set up we were offered a tour of the facilities. It was obvious that even our tour guide, one of the camp hosts, didn't like the place or want to be there. The snow birds we met were all very friendly but the permanent residents were very stand-offish. I really wish I could offer more positive thoughts about the park but they're just not there.

This park is a great place to stop on your way across the country on I-40. Try to reserve or arrive early because it fills up every night. We have stayed here multiple times. On our last visit my surge protector showed a problem with the electrical pedestal. I informed John, the owner and he had an electrician out within minutes. It turns out the issue was with my surge protector not the pedestal. John made no issue about what surely cost a service charge he just wanted to make sure everything was tip top shape. The entire park is just gravel but very well maintained. Restrooms and showers are very clean as is the office and store which is loaded with lots of New Mexico souvenirs and always has fresh ice. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here several years ago and it was pretty nice but time has taken its toll. The park and facilities are fairly clean but not well maintained. There are several dead trees throughout the park, the roads and sites need leveling and substantial maintenance. The bathrooms and showers need work.

This is without a doubt the cleanest, most well maintained KOA we have ever visited. All the staff were very friendly and extremely hepful. The cable TV and WiFi were both very reliable. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

This was an overnight stop while passing through. We arrived early enough to be able to meet some of the staff who were very friendly and helpful. It was Sunday afternoon so they closed early and we didn't get to browse the store but it looked very inviting. The park is very well run and very clean. They were in the process of doing some refurbishments/upgrades to the playground area when we were there. There is a nice little pond in the center of the park where we enjoyed watching the duck. WiFi work very well. I would definitely recommend this campground.

The location is what drew us to this campground. We did enjoy being in the middle of everything in Arlington; however, there is a big "but". The park is over run with long termers that don't keep their sites up well. The pool was a bit off-color and in need of a thorough cleaning. The shower/restrooms were not very clean and in desperate need of some repairs. Shower #2 was missing the shower head, #4 had almost no water pressure, and #5 had so much pressure it hurt (no flow adjustment on control knobs). We didn't try the cable. The WiFi worked really well but was not secured.

We love this campground. The staff are great people who really care about keeping things clean and in working order. The river running through the middle of the campground makes it one of the more enjoyable places we've ever stayed. Almost the entire property is shaded some sites with small lawns. The WiFi is weak in some spots but who wants to be "connected" in a place like this. The free firewood (donations accepted in the office) is a great bonus and begs for a cocktail by the fire every evening. We will be back.

Can not say enough good things about this RV park and the people that run it. Everything is exactly as you would expect it to be in an RV park. Their high ratings in the RV directories are well deserved. I wish all parks were run and maintained like this one.
