Stagecoach Stop RV Resort, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are packed in tight. Relatively quiet. No playground for the kids and too cold for the pool. Amenities here are great, but a little too tight. We camped at Stagecoach Stop RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Rosa Lake State Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We didn't make a reservation, but there were a handful of 1st-come sites. Unfortunately, the one we grabbed didn't have water, but there's a roadside spigot -- don't forget to fill up your tank before parking! (oops!)

We stayed here Wed-Sat. All our neighbors were very quiet and kept to themselves. We had one noisy neighbor Friday night, but they quieted down around 9pm. It was a little windy Wed/Thurs, but the weather was great. The sunrises were beautiful. Our kids enjoyed the visitor centers (2 of them) and we found a few geocaches nearby.

Santa Rosa itself was fun for a day trip -- Blue Hole was cool and there's a nearby "water park" (some slides into a lake) that I bet would be fun in summertime.

Overall, the value here was awesome. $14 a night for electric (and water if you reserve a site!) is a killer deal and we will definitely be back! We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Level sites. Easy to enter and turn in the park. Easy on/off from I-40. Love's truck stop down the road -- handy for filling up before we left. Sites were pretty close together and there wasn't much to do nearby. Only complaint was the horrific smell of cattle blowing in the from the South. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Cadillac Ranch is nearby. If you want BBQ, head to Spicy Mike's -- 5 stars on Yelp and it didn't disappoint!

Sayre City Park Campground, Sayre, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Great deal on our way out to Amarillo. Gravel sites, but decently level. It was great to stay here with kids -- it's right in the middle of a city park with lots of playgrounds and trails for bikes. Very few (2-3) other people here (stayed in late March), so very quiet. We camped at Sayre City Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Downsides: Sites were close together, road noise was a little annoying at night. We camped at Twin Fountains RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
