About Nautilus

We are ex-yacht crew, now full time RVers. We enjoyed our New England trip last summer and are looking forward to heading west for this summer's trip. We plan to visit New Mexico and Arizona and other nearby states. This winter, 2017, will find us in various state parks in Florida. We have sold our Big Foot travel trailer and our third unit is a motor home of 36 feet. We have just departed from New Mexico and am slowly returning to Florida. We wish you all safe travels on the road.

Easy check in, easy off and on to I-40. Can hear some road noise outside but once inside the coach, no noise. Sites are level with gravel pads. Sites are very close with grass between each site.

This is a brand new park. Everything was in beautiful shape. Site was on a concrete pad with grass between sites. FHU. Road was easy to maneuver. i didn't rate the park with a 10 because no picnic tables were on any sites. Easy off and on from I-40. We camped at Wanderlust Crossings RV Park in a Motorhome.

We came in for the night to a gravel lot. Check in was quick and easy. The pull through was big enough not to have to disconnect. FHU at the site. Came through town to the campground, easy to find. No frills, just good service and clean. Would return. We camped at Cactus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Large gravel lot with good services. Site had 30 amp, pull through. We returned for a short stay later in the month and had 50 amp service in site 605. The weekly rate does not include electric service which is on a meter. Electric rate was very reasonable. Sites were open and sunny with good satellite and wireless service.

Trailer Ranch RV Park (55+ Park), Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is very clean, check-in was easy. We were led to our site and assisted in backing in. At reservation we were warned about no late arrivals. We also were notified by e-mail about arriving before the office closed, at 1730. There is no over night parking if you do arrive late. A Walmart is not far from the park for possible parking but we never had to use it. The sites are gravel with a brick patio, no fire pit and no charcoal grills are permitted. Propane grills are allowed. Sites are very close. Good cell service; we were able to get satellite service. Heated pool is good. Cable TV is available. We stayed for five days. We camped at Trailer Ranch RV Park (55+ Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Morefield Campground (NPS), Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Check in at the store, site has FHUs in the Ute loop. Site is short but had room to park the tow vehicle. No cable, no WiFi, no cell service, however could pick up a cell signal half-way down the mountain towards the visitor center. There is a $20 entrance fee to reenter the park unless you have the Golden Age Pass. The laundry room is clean with plenty of machines located near the store. Site is open sunny so satellite TV is good. Deer walked through the campsite every morning. Lots of good hiking trails. We stayed for a week. We camped at Morefield Campground (NPS) in a Travel Trailer.

La Plata County Fairgrounds, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

We had made a reservation and were assigned to a site. Arriving at the county facility we tried to find the sites and finally had to call the office to get directions. It was located next to the stadium which looked like a rodeo arena. The water and electric were good, all new utilities. It looked to me that each site had its own water facility but a "y" fitting was attached to each water tap. There were only two other campers when we were there. What the campground does offer is low price camping located right in town. Cell service and satellite reception was excellent. The service yard on the other side of the fence can at times be noisy with truck exhaust fumes drifting over. We stayed for three days and would return for short stays.

The Durango to Silverton train ride should not be missed. We rode over to Silverton on the bus; the driver gave a good narration during the trip. Train ride back was fun and interesting. Silverton is a small western town with good shopping and restaurants.

Site was among trees near the Rio Grande river. Even though we were tree covered we had good satellite reception. Sites are gravel with good electric and very high water pressure. Will need a pressure reducer. Good cell service. The owner showed us a number of sites so we could pick any site. The park was very quiet and peaceful We just stayed one night.

The RV park consists of a large open area with gravel spread throughout the park. This was the best managed and cleanest park we have ever camped in. All sites have full hook ups with a picnic table. No fire pits are available. Satellite reception is excellent, cell service is good. Rest rooms and showers are exceptionally clean. A small playground is available for the kids. We camped at Mt.

Elk Creek Campground , Gunnison, Colorado

Check in is self service for loop D. Go to reserved site, name will be posted on post in front of site. Site has electric hook-up, no sewer and no water. Fill up at dump station before setting up at site. Our site, D16, was directly across from restroom so we could get water with 75 feet of hose. Sites were on a level concrete pad with a graveled patio. The ramp was black top pavement. The site was excellent, good space between sites. We stayed for a week.

Fire wood is available at City Market in Gunnison. The boat tour of the Black Canyon is excellent, reservation is required, make reservation at visitor center at the campground. The climb down to the boat and back up is strenuous, 128 steps to climb. High Alpine brew pub in Gunnison is very good, good beer and food.

Campground is a graveled lot in a commercial neighborhood. It is located near I-70 and Route 50 for easy access. After check in, we were guided to our site which was very clean. FHUs are available along with a picnic table. Good satellite availability for those with a satellite dish. Good cell service is available. The laundry room is the cleanest we have ever seen, the machines are cleaned daily. This is a very well run RV park. The owner is always available to take care of any concerns. The service provided by the staff is top-notch. We stayed for 10 days. We camped at Junction West RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

The state park is neat and clean, sites are policed after each camper. My only complaint regards the daily pass, don't know why they don't just include it in the cost of camping instead of making it an extra fee at check-in. We enjoyed our two day stay and wished we had made our reservation for a longer stay. They do have sites reserved for walk-ins but the rules are about impossible: you have to put your name on the list at 0800, come back at 1300 to see if you can get a site. If you do get one, it is good for one day and you must do the whole thing all over again the next day, way too much of a hassle. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a non-smoking campground which we enjoyed, no butts on the campsite. Sites were all gravel and long enough without disconnecting. I guess the fact that a pool and hot tub is available makes it a resort. The name didn't matter, all was clean, service was good. We had a wheel bearing problem and their recommendation for a mechanic in Oakley was excellent. We stayed two nights since the repair took all day and we came back at the end of the repair. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Travel Trailer.
