Camped here after Labor Day and it was less than half full. No campers in sites next to us and that was a good thing, as it would be too tight if campground was full. Sites are laid out in a circle with front of the camper to the inside of the circle, so hardly enough room to walk between spaces at that end. Only saw a manager once at check in and had to wait on him for half hour to get around to checking us in, and this was early afternoon, not night. Saw a little trash along the river. On the good side, power, water pressure, Internet service were all fine. Was able to pick up several TV stations on antenna, even though that is not mentioned anywhere. The daily rate is with Good Sam. This place is fine for a few days but there are better parks in Charma, at higher price. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Close to town. Dirt/gravel sites but relatively level. Some shade. Sites kind of close but usable. Sites available right on the river. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sights are extremely level and utilities are placed in the proper places. Small river runs through the campground and gives a great sound at night. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

A nice quiet park with very little highway traffic noise. Close to the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad. We will stay here again. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We truly enjoyed staying here the past couple of days. Manager was very friendly and good tips for restaurants and activities. While most of the leaves are off the trees, there is still beautiful color all around. We were in the far back loop; only one other trailer parked a few sites down. If the fish were biting, we would have been fishing about 50' from the back of the rig. Sites are good size, level, and have picnic tables and fire pits. Small book exchange in office. This would be a good place for an RV rally, plenty of sites and nicely covered pavilion. If we are ever back this way, we'll stay here again. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

A nice park with lots of shade trees and the river running around it gives the constant sound of flowing water. Sites are fairly large and easy in and out; gravel sites with natural grass. Wake up call is 7am when the trash truck arrives. We will stay here again. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I fail to understand how Little Creel can advertise Wi-Fi being available. Take it from this camper that their system is essentially non-existent. You may get lucky and be able to log on BUT only if you park within about 50 feet of the router - at the office. Park also advertises picnic table available at each site. Ours didn't have one. When I mentioned our lack of a table the manager promised to get me one sometime before noon. When we left the next morning we were still without the promised table. Site to which we were assigned was pie shaped. Had to ask neighboring camper to move his tow vehicle so we could leave. Will not stay again. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice clean campground with awesome sites next to river. Dirt roads, but not too much dust. Estimated price as stayed here for a Beaver motorcoach rally. No complaints and would come again. Very nice pavilion for group events. Would have rated a 9, but all picnic tables in sad shape. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

Pleasant campground located next to river. Very friendly management. Wi-Fi deadzone, but strong Verizon signal with broadband. Restroom generally clean but showers have some mold and men's restroom was never stocked with paper towels. Lots of hot water in showers! Our site was a level gravel pull through. Rate listed reflects a GS discount. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet little park. Emphasize Quiet. Part of the Chama River runs through it. Very good fishing right on site. 10-16 inch trout are very possible. Playground could use some help, but my kids spend their time riding their bikes. Hiking right on site. We have been here several times and always have had a great time. Good spot for visiting the town of Chama. Definitely would recommend. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice managers but poorly managed. Needs a lot of maintenance. Not mowed enough, weeds knee high. They do not patrol the grounds often enough. We had people walking through our site so much we considered leaving. They are pet friendly but do not require the owners to pickup after them. Dogs that stay run wild, non stop barking and whining. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for the area. Has a friendly staff. The grounds could use some maintenance and weed trimming. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a classic older RV Park that has been updated to all 50 amp. The park is very clean and some what rustic and has a large area over the river bridge for hiking if you want. All spots are gravel and very level. We were able to get 4 analog local TV stations via repeaters. We felt we got our $$ worth and enjoyed our stay. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

We were passing through but plan to go back to Little Creel in Chama, NM, at another time. The managers were very friendly and helpful, and the bathhouse was very clean. My only complaint is that the picnic benches are weathered, but the manager said they are planning on building some new ones this summer. We want to go back in the fall to fish at the river that runs through the park. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We chose this park because we were traveling with family who stayed in a cabin at this park. Being frugal, we chose a Standard Back-In site. These sites are on the North end of the park and closer to the highway. These particular sites are packed very close together. The rest of the sites are behind a row of cabins. The patrons of this park totally disregarded the 5 mph speed limit even though it is posted at least 4 times along the row that our site was on. In hind sight, it would probably been worth the extra $2 per night for a Premium Back-In site as they are further away from the highway and spaced further apart. All of the picnic tables and riverfront decks were very weathered or broken. The web site states cable TV as one of the amenities, but is only available in the cabins. The cabin that our family rented was not very clean. In fact, there was still hair in the bathtub drain. When we made reservations, we indicated that we would have a dog staying in the cabin and would be crated inside while we rode the train. The person on the phone offered that they would come and let the dog out in the middle of the day for us. When we arrived, they said that they did not know who told us that and they would not let the dog out. As far as this place being called a "resort", that is a big stretch. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.
