This very small & noisy park has mostly permanent residents and sits right on the main thoroughfare. Of the 12 tightly-spaced, thickly graveled sites only 1 or 2 are available for transient RV’ers. The park is apparently full to capacity all year long, mostly with early-rise workers. We called for reservations several months prior to our visit and we were told to “Come on in”. We checked again about a week ahead of our arrival and received the same response. When we arrived, the office was closed and there were instructions to self-park and return after 5 p.m. to check-in. Had another traveler pulled in before us, they would have taken the only remaining site and our “Come-on-in reservation” would be worthless. Not a good system. The hard-working and sincere on-site owners work full-time elsewhere and there is no other employees to staff the office, thus leaving no help available during normal working hours. The owners are admittedly having trouble finding time for all they have to do and they aren’t too worried about filling the 2 vacant sites with travelers. To their credit, they have several improvement projects in process, most everything is in good repair and the park is as charming as possible given it’s poor location. The park offers free WiFi (Lynksys) with an excellent signal & speed. There is no cable TV, showers, or laundry – but it’s “coming soon” according to the nicely-designed, if not overblown, website. The sites are simply too narrow for picnic tables or grills, our 50-amp service was not working and the sites are definitely too short to accommodate big rigs (we backed our 37’ 5th wheel and still-attached F-350 into the end site – which left quite a bit of our rig hanging out into the “street”). We only stayed here for one night and even then it was a definite disappointment. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is clean and quite. I looked around at other parks and found this one to be the best in the area. Dog park is kept clean. The laundry is clean and the dryers are faster than any other I have found in a laundry facility. There are some long terms campers but everyone is welcoming and quite. Lots of grassy areas and trees for New Mexico. I look forward to the roses blooming and leafs on the trees later this year. The staff is always helpful and friendly, seems the problem manger from 2013 is no longer around. Donuts in the game room on Sunday mornings. I found the showers were clean with nice water pressure. Lots of cleaning and sprucing up going on for Spring. Convenient to fishing, the race track, Durango, and Chaco Canyon. The park could use more gravel, and since the store closes at 5:00 pm there needs to be a change machine and detergent machine in the laundry. Ice and beer in the store would also be a plus. I would stay again and recommend it to others. No issue with Wi-Fi or cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Ask before check in if cable TV was available and was advised it was. I was given a comcast box and phone number to connect to cable outlet and TV and was advised it only takes 3 minutes. After contacting comcast for 45 minutes and getting nothing to work went back to office and was advised that cable was not working. I ask to talk to the manager when she returned. Did not receive a call back. Called Resort several time to see about a refund and after several more call was advise that the bill would not be adjusted. After driving all day who would want to spend 45 minutes to a hour of their time trying to get Cable TV. Management was not responsive to problem. Would never stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the few really unsatisfactory places for the price paid that we've stayed in (out of 20+ private and public campgrounds) so far this year. The web site does not reflect the reality. Only 4 sites are for RVers. The rest are permanent residents. We were not told at check-in that cable does not work, and no adjustment was offered by the woman in the office. Only two washers or dryers work and the remaining ones are out of order. Signs admonish residents not to wash their "greasy clothes" in any washer but the yellow one (broken.) There are Good Sam signs everywhere but we were charged a higher rate than quoted when we reserved. Our all-gravel site had an ancient picnic table and rusty grill. Our first clue should have been this: We booked ahead with a credit card hold in July because we needed an overnight close to Chaco Canyon; we received a cell message weeks later that the previous owner had oversold and we did not have a site. Too bad we bothered to call back, because we were then told there was a cancellation and we could come after all. We would not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
