We stayed at the park for two nights. We were there to ride the train and for Chama Days. The owners are new and very accommodating. We were welcomed warmly, guided to our site and provided all information we needed. The roads are mostly gravel. The Rec Hall is beautiful and very comfortable. We would stay here again. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

Cumbres & Toltec train is a spectacular experience. I rode the bus to Antonito and rode the train back to Chama.

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. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice quite park. Helpful staff. Could use some mowing but all New Mexico rv parks seem that way this year. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The wifi was horrible and we spoke to the "manager" upon checking out to see if they would make some monetary compensation based on this problem. The "manager" said he is the go-to guy in the area and everyone goes to him to copy his processes in order to get such a great signal.....not true. We have honeymooned in cabins and returned frequently throughout 14 yrs....the owners were different and the property and service shows that. Large areas of dangerous old equipment randomly piled throughout the property. Trash is evident throughout as well as cabins with torn screens, ripped blinds and decks and tables old and splintery. WE will not be returning. We camped at Little Creel Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.
