Stayed here one night while passing through the area. Easy enough to find and easy access. Staff friendly. Basically a gravel parking lot with what appeared to be several permanent trailers, although those sites seemed to be neat enough. Some trees. Long grassy pet park for dogs. Good WIFI. For cable TV access, we were given a converter and a remote, which we could not get to work but for one night, local TV was okay for us. The biggest negative for us wanting to keep our truck hooked up to our trailer since only staying one night--the hookups were toward the "front" of the pull-through site, so we had to unhitch the truck. Okay for one night, but don't know if we would stay again except that other parks in this and the Farmington area did not get great reviews on this site. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Level, gravel roads; long gravel, pull-through sites. We didn't use their cable - you had to unplug your TV wires & attach to a box. We got a few channels with our antenna, instead. Some residents had "stuff" sitting outside their RVs, and one dog was tied-outside - alone and barking. However, this park had one of the best fenced Dog Parks we've run across - large, shady, with grass, bag dispenser & benches! For this reason, I'd overlook the minor negatives and stay here again. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff is very friendly and quick to respond to my needs. Although we are full-time RVers, we stay at each park a few months before heading to the next one. We travel for my husband's work. We've been here nearly 6 months so far, with another 3 to go, until we move on. Everything about this park is great! The manager is doing a fantastic job of renovating the park and he sees to it that everything is always in working order (pool, spa, restrooms, laundry, etc). It is clean and tidy and surprisingly, it also has a lot of grass (not at the sites) surrounding the sites. The restrooms are probably the nicest I've ever seen. They have been renovating the store as well, and they now sell food/drinks/ice. Beer is available at all local gas stations. Propane is available on site. It is close to local attractions and about a 23 minute drive to Farmington's closest Wal-Mart. Sites are large and well-spaced and they're going to build even larger pull-throughs soon. All the picnic tables have been resanded/repainted to look brand-new! We're going to miss this park and everyone that works here when it's time for us to go. I would definitely camp here again, and I've already referred many people to here, with equally a pleasant stay and experience. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 instead of 10, is because there are some small holes in the dog park fence that I worry small dogs might be able to escape through if they were persistent. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a former KOA that is being refurbished. There is lots of activity in the nearby gas and oil fields, there is an oil well on one corner of the property, so a good portion of the sites are medium term folks. That said, everyone was very careful about their speed within the facility and it was very quiet. We had a nice spot under a tree and slept very well. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

Very disappointing. We booked a 50 amp site and it should have been unavailable as it was so rough that we could not level. The 50 amp box was so close to the ground that my husband had to be on his knees in the dirt to hook up the plug. Gave it a 2 because it was quiet and the staff appear to be working to improve things. Sites are pull thru but short so have to unhitch towed vehicle. We would not stay here again.

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 at Desert Rose Resort 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.

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 at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

We were somewhat leery of Desert Rose because of past reviews, but decided to try it because of location (we planned to visit Chaco Canyon). We are glad we made the decision to stay. Nice park, quiet, neat. Much trimming, cleaning completed during our stay. Pool opened during our stay. Great staff, always helpful. Convenient to Salmon Ruins and Aztec Ruins (both Chacoan), as well as good access to Chaco Canyon. Good 4G ATT phone service. We plan to stay here again. Rate reflects one month stay. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

This RV park is under new ownership and it appears that it is in the process of much needed cleanup. There are numerous rigs that seem to be permanent; probably workers in the nearby town. The Wi-Fi is very very slow. There is cable TV, but not all the channels that the office list are available. I would stay here again, but Wifi is important to me. I hope they get it fixed.

Nice CG it has grass. The sites were a little tight but not a problem. It has an enclosed dog park area with toys and such. WiFi was fine and we were near the back of the park. We used this as a base to go to Chaco Culture. Aztec Ruins are close but we did not get there. Shopping is nearby this CG is in a residential area. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place. Off the main highway a block, but close to a busy road. Traffic lessens considerably at night, so it is quiet - especially if you ask for a site in the back. Park and shower/restroom facilities were clean and folks were friendly. Most sites had some shade, but no grass. Long terms were clean and quiet and no problem at all. Stayed 2 nights so we could go visit Chaco Canyon. Would stay again if we're out this way. Rate is with GS discount We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Clean campground. Nice and quiet. Sites are short, so had to unhook the camper from truck ( not a big deal). Friendly owners. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here on a Sunday night in October. We had a FHU, pull-through site with 50+ channel cable TV and WIFI that worked at our site. Most sites are pull-through and 30 or 50 AMP. There are about 10 tent sites, a group tent area, and a couple cabins. Yes, there are a lot of permanent area workers staying here, but I didn't feel they were, in any way, a detriment to our stay. The pool was closed for the season but there is a playground for kids plus horseshoe pits and a basketball hoop. The main building has a laundry and bathrooms. The park is well off the main highways and at least a mile from any restaurants and shopping. The office staff was friendly. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

Better than nothing but not a "nice" stop. Lots of full time oil workers. No grass. WI-FI very "iffy." Watch out when you drive out. There is a dead end at the end of the western most lane. Had to unhook just to get out. Former KOA so you know the layout. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.
