Pedernales Falls State Park, Johnson City, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Overall a nice state park with widely spaced pads and lots of trees between to provide some privacy. We were there on a rainy weekend and the campsite area was about half full. All the sites had a nice picnic table that was either covered or under shade. However many of these tables were on the wrong side of the trailer to be convenient. One of the two bathrooms was recently renovated. Most of the sites I would consider to not be deep enough for really big rigs but ours worked for us. WiFi and cell worked fine near the park office but practically non existent in the campsites. Good tv reception from Austin and SA stations. We camped at Pedernales Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rio Penasco R.V. Camp, Mayhill, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This review is for the Camp @ Cloudcroft. Overall this is a smaller but nice campground about 15 miles east of Cloudcroft. All the sites were wide and relatively flat with a decent amount of space between them. Many sites have large trees for shade. Several sites were pull-through. Wifi coverage in the park was good but throughput was marginal. No AT&T reception and minimal with Verizon. All hook-ups worked fine except for the CATV which I couldn't get to work with my rig. Our reservation was not right when checked in but they sorted it out pretty quickly. The only other issue was we picked a spot at the back of the park next to the river. Unfortunately there's about a 6ft berm next to this space (for flooding) making the seating area narrow and no view of the river. Not a huge deal but a little disappointing. We camped at Rio Penasco R.V. Camp in a Travel Trailer.

The NM 130 loop between Mayhill and Cloudcroft is very scenic. For hiking I recommend the Osha trail and the trails from the Trestle recreation area.

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

Overall this is a nice RV park, but it's really two different areas. The front (newer) half is for the big rigs. They have lots of space but with less shade. The back half (adjacent and behind the office) is older with many big trees but it's much more crowded and several of the sites are not very level. We made it work but only with a 1ft block under the front. Parking for tow vehicles for some sites is not adjacent, and many sites opened up to each other so we were eye-to-eye with our neighbors. My recommendation is if want the shade try and get a site around the perimeter and not in the center, or stay out front in the big rig area. The amenities were nice, clean showers and restrooms, staff was helpful, wifi was slow but Verizon LTE worked well. Overall we would stay here again, if we could pick a space around the edge of the park. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground, Alto, New Mexico

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

Best part of this campground was the staff. They were super friendly and helpful. They checked in on us several times to ask if we needed anything. Most of the sites were level and relatively easy to access. The site spacing was a little close in our area but certainly workable. Our site backed up to the creek which was nice. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Wifi was good as long as you were close to the bathroom building. No AT&T cellular coverage and Verizon was very spotty. Overall we had a good experience and would consider staying here again. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Saw lots of folks fishing in the Rio Bonito which runs through the campground, but didn't see anyone catching fish. For hiking I recommend the Big Bonito and Argentina trails at the end of FR 107 past the horse stables. This area was not as affected by the fire several years ago.

Garner State Park, Concan, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We picked the Live Oak Campground in the New Garner area based on other reviews. After touring the other campgrounds we made the right choice for us. Shady Meadows would be our 2nd choice for a future visit.

The Old Garner areas are nicely wooded but much older and the spaces are more narrow and shallow. There's lots of day use in this area. I think a 25-30ft RV would be the max for most of the sites. But Old Garner is closer to the swimmable part of the river, hiking trails, mini-golf, and the park store.

We arrived 2 days before the weekend and had our pick of the sites closest to the river with great shade. All of the spaces in Live Oak are generously spaced and very nice. Bathroom was clean but no soap dispenser. AT&T cellular was acceptable but no Verizon. No cable or OTA TV reception.

The only negative was the park office closed at 4:30pm so we had to go through the after-hours check in procedure which was a little inconvenient. I don't believe the 4:30 close time was posted on the website or in the reservation email. We camped at Garner State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Although we were not here in the summer, based on what I've heard from others and how the check-in procedure is set up I would anticipate long lines and wait times for check-in during peak summer months. They have a "take a number" system if that's a clue, and you still have to wait even though you have a reservation. So arrival planning would be key if you want to minimize the wait.

Eagle Creek RV Resort, Alto, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean and well-maintained campground. Wi-fi was very good and cell coverage was decent. Several over-the air local TV stations worked as well. The spaces are wide and level with nice gravel throughout the park. The gated entry is very nice and adds to the security. Our only major complaint is the sites available for short-term campers are in the west side of the park where there are very few trees. The east side has a much better forest feel, but most of these sites were occupied by season-long campers. We camped at Eagle Creek RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Circle The Wagons RV Park , La Veta, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We had a very nice stay at Circle the Wagons. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Staff was very helpful. Spaces are wide and flat without the feeling of being on top of each other. We stayed in one of the sites next to river which was very pleasant with lots of shade from the cottonwood trees. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Caprock Canyons State Park, Quitaque, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed at the Honey Flat campground. Pads were level and not tightly spaced. Most have decent shade with a covered picnic table. Wifi was spotty, AT&T cellular was decent, Verizon practically non-existent. Much to our surprise over-the-air TV reception was very good.

Bison were in and around the campground all weekend which was interesting (lots of bison patties). Saw a decent sized rattlesnake on the Upper Canyon trail so be careful. We camped at Caprock Canyons State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sportsman's Campground and Mountain Cabins, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

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

Very nice campground, lots of pine trees and shade, full hook-ups at each site including cable TV (4 channels). The lodge was nice and clean with a separate kitchen area, game room and two bathrooms with showers. The staff was friendly and helpful. Since we stayed there in August many spaces were already occupied by retirees for the summer. The only small disappointments were: 1) Some of the spaces (including ours) were closer together than we expected, and 2) The WiFi was very inconsistent, and only Verizon provided decent cell coverage. We camped at Sportsman's Campground and Mountain Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

As a first time RV-er we stayed at the Hackberry campground as a dry-run with our new RV. Pros: sites were clean, relatively level, and 20-30 yards apart (we were assigned a specific site at check-in), all sites had a picnic table although only about half were covered, lots of trash bins, restrooms were ok, power and water were clean. Cons: AT&T cell coverage was spotty and Verizon was non-existent, the dump station near Hackberry was full and needed to be serviced (Sagebrush dump station was marked closed). All sites had a fire ring or grill but we couldn't use them due an open fire ban. Overall I would recommend Hackberry over the other campsites with hook-ups. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.
