We've stayed here before in the spring and it's always the same. No attendant and no forms to complete in the self-service kiosk. We opted for the electric-only rate, made up our own form, and deposited the form and a check in the lock box. We picked a site with full hookups and used electric only due to the short length of the available electric-only sites, but with no one present, it's likely some folks didn't pay at all which is Cabela's fault. Otherwise the park is nice - level gravel sites and a grassy area with table and small tree. Quiet at night, with easy access to the Interstate and local restaurants. No WiFi or cable, but satellite TV and Verizon cell/data worked well. A popular place, the park was 3/4 full by sunset. Good for an overnight stay but there's not much here otherwise.

     

Limon KOA

Limon, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Typical older KOA with tight maneuvering required to get into the sites. Friendly owner/manager on check in who recommended area restaurants. Interior roads and sites are gravel; our pull-thru was long enough for our motorhome and tow vehicle and was level with some shade. Hookups were well placed and cable TV and free WiFi worked well. Easy access to I-70 and local restaurants. A good family stay during the summer when the pool is open but a bit pricey for an overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

Rate includes $7.00 for the required Colorado state park pass. This large park with lakes and mountain views is easily accessed From I-25. Four loops offer a variety of pull-thru and back-in sites, some with electric, some with individual water outlets. Interior roads and sites are all paved, but it takes some meticulous maneuvering to navigate some of the turns due to the Juniper trees that overhang the road. Most of the loop sites weren't level for our 40' motorhome, but we found one on A loop that was level and had a great view of the mountains. Clear views of TV Satellites and good Verizon cell/data, and there are a number of dining choices in the nearby town. Large sites, many sheltered from each other by trees and bushes, make this a nice destination.

Date of Stay:

The previous reviewer was spot-on with the review of this park. Basically just a big gravel parking lot with a very friendly and helpful manager, but with great access to area attractions without the traffic of Santa Fe. Sites are very wide, enough to park your tow vehicle along side our RV. Nothing fancy, and remember no restrooms, but for us a great location made up for any shortcomings.

Date of Stay:

This fairly remote location in the high desert provides great views of nearby mountains, quiet nights, and access to a large lake. Interior roads and sites are all paved; however, some sites (ours was one) are badly sloped to the point of being impossible to level even with a number of leveling blocks. The campground hosts were not particularly friendly, and our site required a cleanup of trash and gravel that was piled on the table. Be prepared for wind here, as you're on a bluff above the lake. Services and dining are about 30 miles, but Verizon cell and data worked well. An OK park for a short visit, but for us the remote location and mediocre facilities didn't outweigh the low rate and we'll stay elsewhere.

Date of Stay:

Friendly check-in, escort to site, and a level, shaded site - all for the Passport America rate of $14. Not a destination park due to it's location, but a great overnight stay. Site was long enough that both 40' motorhome and tow fit without a problem. No cable TV, but good Wi-Fi and clear view of TV satellites. Close to I-25, but road noise is tolerable. Good Verizon cell and data. Everything you'd want in a comfortable overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

The Passport America discount makes this park both affordable and attractive for a stay. Friendly manager/owner, level gravel sites, good hookups and reasonable amenities combine to make this our park of choice when staying in Alamogordo. Road noise can be noticable, and an occasional train can be heard, but overall nothing too distracting. Good Verizon cell/data and fair local TV. Easy access and convenient to town.

Date of Stay:

This park has become our preferred stop for an overnight in Las Cruces. Very easy access from I-10, easy to get into, with sites large enough that we could keep the tow connected to our 40' motor home. Level, gravel sites with good hookups, good free WiFi, and quiet at night - all for the Passport America rate of $18. Not the best of neighborhoods, but we've never had a problem.

Date of Stay:

An exceptional state park - large paved sites have shelters with table and fire rings and many back up to the lake. Facilities are extensive with community hot tub, swimming beach, boat launch, and fishing docks along with three camping loops. There are well-groomed trails throughout the park and bird watching is exceptional. Good Verizon cell and data, and clear views to the satellites. The volunteer staff was friendly and the visitor center has a nicely stocked gift shop. Our only complaint was that mosquitoes were abundant near the water and at night, and the speed bump on exiting is unnecessarily high. Otherwise, an excellent park.

Date of Stay:

Of all the SKPs parks we've stayed at, this was the most welcoming, best organized, and most friendly park. The facilities are all first-class, and visitors are invited to participate in a multitude of activities are scheduled each day. We were fortunate to rent an absent owner's lot, with paved pad, landscaping, and casita patio, but there are plenty of traditional rental sites also. Good cable, nothing to block satellites, and strong Verizon cell/data.

Date of Stay:

A former water park and the sites are in an irregular alignment, but most provide plenty of room. Some paved access, but mostly gravel, with generous desert landscaping and trees for shade in some sites. Very friendly park; everyone waves and smiles. Outstanding facilities, many activities, and park residents are invited to participate in planning. WiFi didn't work in our location, no cable but clear satellite views, and good Verizon cell/data. Great location for hiking trails in lush desert environment.

Date of Stay:

Primarily a resident park, visitors are parked in a large gravel parking lot with back-in sites. Sites are full hookup, 30 amp only, without grass or trees. Office and residents were very friendly, and we were welcome to attend park activities. No cable and Wi-Fi is not free, but Verizon cell and data worked well and there are no obstructions to TV satellites. Well off the highway, and dark and quiet at night. OK for an overnight or short stay.

Date of Stay:

Exceptionally managed, laid out in an uncommonly logical manner, with enormous sites separated by trees and desert landscaping - easily one of the best military campgrounds around. In Las Vegas, security and a reasonable price are not easy to come by, and a stay here meets both requirements. Yes, there is aircraft noise and reveille is played early on weekday mornings, but if you've been in the military you won't mind. Great WiFi with multiple antennae throughout the park. Good Verizon cell and 4G, and not much to block TV Satellites. On check in, the friendly office staff gives you a hefty welcome package and escorts you to your site - a fitting welcome to a great stay. We'll stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Based on previous reviews, we didn't expect much, and it lived up to our expectations. Arriving at 3:00, there were only two spots open, most taken up by long-term residents. Tight, sloping sites, just long enough for a 40' RV and small SUV tow. The good news is that our site had a 50A plug - the bad news was that it was upside down, a bit of a problem with our surge guard. But it worked, as did the water, and there was a sewer hookup. Lots of traffic through the area as residents cut through the parking lot on their way to the casino and supermarket next door. Lots of bright lights for security so we felt fairly safe, and it was quiet throughout the night. If you plan to stay, get there early; we watched at least a dozen RVs drive through looking for a space. Free WiFi actually worked well, and Verizon cell and data were good. No cable or broadcast TV, but nothing to block a satellite. The casino is historic (old) with a lot of cigarette smoke, and we passed on the restaurant. Not a scenic stop, but fulfills the need for a midway rest between Reno and Las Vegas.

Date of Stay:

Not much stands out as impressive at this park, but it has easy access from the interstate, is quiet, and has good hookups and free WiFi. The interior roads and sites are gravel, and most are sloped side-to-side. A bit smaller than average, the sites have a narrow strip of grass and a small tree. The free cable TV was adequate, and Verizon cell and data were strong. Pretty much a cooky-cutter layout and facilities, with a slightly higher than average nightly cost. The town of Yreka is nearby and has shopping and a large WalMart.
