This campground was a previous KOA. Campsites are large, level, gravel, and we had 2 good size trees. Easy to get into site and plenty of space in the campground. While the sites are gravel, the outside edge had pine trees and grass and a huge cork tree. There is a pool, looked nice but we didn't go. Very good cable, Wi-Fi was excellent- we had no trouble connecting and speed was great. This is the closest campground to Chaco canyon-60 miles. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

Chaco canyon 60 miles away. Make sure you arrive in time for the 10 AM ranger hike of Pueblo Bonito. From the campground to the visitors center was 1 1/2 hours. Call the park (they answer at 8 AM) to check road conditions.

Arrived after hours. Had to walk a dark campground to find an available site. Since it's still cold, the water spigots have heat tape wrapped around them and some of the outlets are being used. The first site we pulled into, the 30-amp plug was being used (our old motorhome only has 30-amp). On the 2nd site, the electric was off, but the 3rd site suited our needs. I didn't see much of the park, but it looked like there many full-time residents. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

First off, the Resort claims to be at 4 corners, which is about 80 miles, one way to get to. Then you have use of the word "Resort". This park is in Bloomfield NM, which is a large player in NW New Mexico's "energy zone"., having multiple refining plants. Energy workers travel to jobs and this "Resort" is about 40% long term residents and the companion "landscaping" they provide. Don't get me wrong, they are good folks and the camp feels safe. The marketing department just needs to change the name to Desert Rose Campground. We stayed three nights to see surrounding ancient culture attractions. Happy to have dry weather as it is obvious the camp turns into mud when rains come. Clothes washers are clean enough for comfort but are old. One is avocado green, hmm, reminds of early marriage appliances. All said, this area is sparse in RV parks and this one is about as good a choice as any near. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I honestly don't know how anyone can rate this less then a ten. This is a very nice park and the owners are awesome! They have been really great to Aztec Ruins NM. There is even a swimming pool and cable. The grounds have lots of trees and you feel like you are miles away. Very quiet and peaceful. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a pleasant surprise when pulling into the park. It is neat looking, the spaces are wide and shady. So shady in space #61 we couldn't pull in as the trees needed trimming. We did find a nice spot and enjoyed our stay. I would give this park a 9 if they would trim the trees and cut a few weeds around the permanent resident's trailers. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. Would stay here again. Stayed in a 5th wheel. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Navajo lake is not very far from this park and Aztec Ruins. We lived in this area for 20 years; therefore, we didn't visit these places again, but I would recommend them if you are in the area.

This is an old KOA. Rate for a 50amp is $520 per month which included electric. Wifi is available and the majority of the time worked ok. We were here for 8 months for a temp. job assignment. Saw 4 different sets of managers and staff. Sites are in desperate need of rock. Not level. There was a picnic table and standalone grill in our site but it was extremely close to our motorhome and it couldn't be moved. Large tree stump right in the middle of the site which was in the way. Run down trailers and modular homes that are being rented out. Cabins have long term rentals that need to clean up the outside. Tent area is overrun with grass and goatheads. Washers and dryers didn't work most of the time. Thankfully there is a very nice clean laundry right down the road. Bathrooms may or may not be clean. Works with minimal staff. Office opens at 8 and closes at 5 the majority of the time. The pool and hot tub are not operational. There is a small area for kids with a swing set. The main office building is in dire need of repair. There is a nice fenced dog park which could use a little repair, i.e. holes in the fence. Old dead trees that have branches break off with a good wind. The water pressure was good but the electricity did go off just about every day. During a storm it did go off at night and guests didn't know what to do as there was no emergency contact number or a member of staff on site.

4 years ago this was a nice park with different owners. The present owner is out of state and has no ideal what goes on and doesn't seem to want to supply funds to bring this back up to a nice park to stay at as we saw now improvements in the time we were there.

We would not recommend this park nor do we plan on staying here again unless there have been significant improvements. Would not be able to overnight without unhooking your toad. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

Close to a small grocery store, fast food, restaurants, gas stations and Farmington is only 15 miles away. Also close to the Aztec Ruins and the Salmon Run Museum. Only 40 miles from Durango, CO.

We have been here since Nov. 2014 due to the hubbys job. We had stayed here before and this is the reason we chose this park. The rate listed is based on the monthly rate and includes electricity.

The manager and staff are very helpful, courteous and are always working on things around the park. The restrooms were very clean during various times during the day. We did not use the laundry. The office area was always clean and there were gifts, small selection of groceries, etc.

We will probably not return unless they bring in some gravel. When it rains it is nothing but a mud hole and there are large holes and ruts throughout the park. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Desert Rose Resort 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 at Desert Rose Resort in a Motorhome.
