Nice quite park. Helpful staff. Could use some mowing but all New Mexico rv parks seem that way this year. - Bat Rider

This was just an overnight stay and served our purpose. The CG was convenient to our route and easy enough to get in and out of. The pull-thru site was level gravel. Water pressure was adequate. We had some shade, but we were still able to receive satellite signal. Wifi was sketchy, but phone signal was good. This however is definitely not a "Resort". It is an older CG in need of some maintainance and upkeep- grass needed to be mowed, picnic tables are old and dilapidated. - jacksup1212

I spent two nights at this park while visiting Chama to take the Cumbres & Toltec vintage train. Park manager was very friendly and found a site that would both accommodate my 40-ft motorhome and provide enough sky for my satellite TV. He also provided me with a code that got me a discount on the train ticket. The park is old and not particularly fancy, but it served my needs. - Phaeton40AH

A lovely park. We spent three days and I would have stayed longer except we didn't have time. I will return and stay a full week next time.
Wifi was great and our site backed up to the river and the train bridge. The site itself was shaded, large, and the other campers were so friendly. Walking around the campground was neat as they had old train cars all along the edge. The bathrooms and showers were a little hokey, but clean and I had no issues with them. - steammaker

We came for three days and signed up for 5 more. Beautiful huge cottonwoods LOTS of shade and right on a creek with trout. Not much TV and nightlife but a great place to just unwind. We will come back to this park for sure. - notsofastdave

A super-nice park...perhaps our favorite rv park ever :-) Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The park is alongside the Chama River and adjacent to the train depot (as others have noted). Can see the train come and go easily and is quite a sight! Everything was clean and the sites are under a huge canopy of cottonwood trees; cool and shady. We absolutely plan to return! - ziaptrn

This is an awesome park. Good size spaces, fire pits, Chama River right there for fly fishing. People are extremely nice. - Kwanyen

We stayed here over the Memorial Day week-end. It is 400 miles from our home, but it is always nice to be in the Chama, NM area. The sites are level, big and shady. We spent a lot of time under the trees. There was a rowdy bunch around us...no knowledge about camping etiquette, but there isn't much you can do about that. We stayed through Memorial Day so most all the campers had gone by then. The grounds are immaculate as are the restrooms. Again, we enjoyed our visit. - Marilynintexas

Check in was easy. Our first site did not work out . Change for another site was easy, no problem. Verizon and Mifi work great. Over the air TV is good.
Electric, water good. Laundry very nice. It you want river sites 1-8 they are mostly for drive in not for back in as connections are backwards as we found out. Nice location and very quiet. - margeandbob

Excellent free WiFi. Spotless laundry and shower facilities. Owners live on property and are perfect hosts, always available but not intrusive. - chck

Despite earlier reviews, we decided to try this campground. We found it to be very clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is just a basic campground, with gravel sites and roads. Wi-Fi is available at no charge. We would stay again if in the area. - poudrewayne

We made reservations two months ahead but arrived at the campground, toured it, and moved on to another. It had permanent trailers parked and sites looked unkempt. It just gave an overall appearence of being rundown. Would not make reservations again. - jlawson34

The sites are huge and well layed out. Some have quite a bit more privacy than others. The biggest rigs in the world would have no problem navigating the Blanco loop.
Verizon signal was patchy. We had a perfectly usable 4G at our site 45, but there were a lot of other sites with no signal at all, as we discovered on our walks.
There are a couple sites with sewer available on the other loop but they have less privacy.
We were a little disappointed that most of the sites offer no real view other than the pines, juniper and sage in this flat area. A few had some view of distant mountains and mesas. You wouldn't even know the lake was there if you didn't hike the short trail.
Nearest grocery store is in Chama, which is about a 45 minute round trip.
We did drive over to El Vado State Park and will definitely stay there next time. All of the sites at El Vado are right on the lake (some just feet from the dropoff down to the lake) with GORGEOUS views. The warning signs about trailer size on the road to El Vado are not applicable if you're going to the state park. - Brad & Angela

Heron Lake State Park is a great place to camp when you want to get away from it all. We had a pull-through site with 30 amp electrical service and water hookup. There is a dump station at the front of the campground. Sites are large and private with well-placed pine and juniper trees between. Our site was mostly level. Campground roads are dirt/gravel, and well-maintained. Camp host was friendly and accessible. Hiking trail passes through the campground. Lots of wildlife to see. - WGlengrl

Stayed in Blanco loop. Big clean sites. Many pull-through sites. Visitor center closed. Park was nearly empty. One way road through campground except many of the pull-through sites are accessed by going the opposite way. Sign at entrance to loop tells you which sites are accessed going the "wrong way." Spacious. Willow Creek sites are not as spacious or as easy to access. - fander

The pics on the website must be really old. Didnt look like the same place. Might have been a great place at one time, but very run down. Cabins/apartments not cleaned, spider webs in the corners, window that won't open or close, old run down mobile homes next to us, trees need to be trimmed as the top of our motorhome was scraped coming in and out of the one 50 amp site on location. Also, a $10 upcharge from the rack rate of $25 for 50 amp. Give this one a miss. - TXTread

New Mexico state parks always offer such great value. For $14, you get hookups, a dump station, tons of elbow room around your rig, a nice ramada fire ring/table, and as much nature as you'd like. Our site was right by some nesting osprey. The lake is severely low right now, but we really enjoyed watching the daily monsoons build over the mountains and then let loose with a very beautiful lightning show every night we were there. Be sure you stock up on all your supplies. This place is a drive to anywhere over some pretty bumpy/poorly maintained roads. Once you get here, relax and stay a while. Very nice, on-top-of-things camp host, too. - JCLC

With our 40' motorhome we stayed in Pinon Beach Campground on Site #64 which was a beauty. Was all by itself on a peninsula with lots of room to park. The only downside was the narrow, dusty road coming to it and the very dusty site. It needs some gravel. We mentioned the narrow road for big rigs and immediately there was tree-trimming in progress. There were other nice sites in Pinon Beach for $10.00 with no hookups in this campground. Grassy Point Campground has the electric and water sites for $14.00. Elk Run Campground has no hookups and is $10.00.There is a boat ramp and the only place to keep your boat in the water is at Pinon Beach Campground. There is a dump station but no potable water there. You will need to drive to one of the hookup sites to get water. The road getting to the campgrounds is all paved and good traveling. This was a more "modern" campground than the nearby "Heron Lake State Park and the lake was much higher and prettier. It was not crowded while we were here, but this was during the week. We had excellent Verizon signal using our Air Card. - nbi600

Most of the facilities were closed for the winter but being in a self-contained motor home, it did not matter. We did try to get some information on a road but the ranger station was closed. This is a nice park with varying rates depending on the services at the site. The dogs frolicked in the lake and enjoyed it. The site was level and we enjoyed our stay here. At night a big storm came in with high winds and heavy rain. The "flashing" lights were activated and I think they mean "get off of the water" but the sign was confusing. We would stay here again. - Nicrisgirl

Aug 2014 - $18.00
[Moderator's note: Campground will close September 1, will reopen Memorial Weekend 2015.] Aspen Glade is a USFS CG about 15 miles west of Antonito, CO, on the Conejos River. Elevation 8500'. Many campers come here to try their luck catching native-only brown trout. The river is NOT stocked. CG has 2 levels, upper 2 loops (1-11 & 12-18) and lower loop (19-32) with more shade near river. No TV reception, no cell service, 1 radio station, even satellite TV hard to get. Nearby Cumbres and Toltec steam railroad is worth the trip. Water available, newer vault restrooms. - dave3114

This is an older park and some sites are pretty close together. It is in a great location by the Conejos River and most campers were there for the fishing, to relax and for family get-togethers. Everyone was very friendly and it was really quiet at night. In early June the mosquitos were vicious, however, so beware when sitting outside, especially in the evenings. The showers and bathrooms were clean and had lots of hot water. There is a nice store in the office with ice cream and fishing gear. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. - gtogrl

What a gem! We camped here with a site right on the river and it was heaven! Luckily there was a cancellation as most spaces are booked months ahead of time. We booked our site for 2014 in December of 2013. Nice friendly staff. Seems like some of the campers stay for months at a time as they know each other and have group dinners together. Camp fires are allowed when by the riverside which is nice and spaces are spaced decently apart. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained and there is a sewer wagon that comes around several times a week. Small store that has a few things; mostly fishing stuff. Couple of towns within about a 10-15 minute drive. Only complaint is we wish they had cable TV so we could keep up with the local weather, news, etc. Wi-Fi was decent if you were near the office; otherwise forget it. Lots of hiking in the area. Definitely looking forward to our trip back! - The Talks

A FAMILY FAVORITE! We stay at Ponderosa almost every year for the past 4 years, in both tent and pop up. We love the people here, the river, the fishing, EVERYTHING. For the fourth of July they have a bunch of activities including a fund-raiser rubber duck race down the river. We would like to keep it our secret, but they deserve all the attention and the success in the world! - Maricarmen Pijem
