There are only a handful of electric spots. The best spots have no utilities and ate within the rocks. - Bob and Sally Ski

Stayed in amazing sites right in the rocks. No services at these sites but there are other sites with water and electric. My major complaint was no dump station at all and the fact that the park isn't near much of anything. The park was extremely clean and the staff was very nice. Absolutely no ATT service and Verizon (without booster) was 3G. Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was dirt and featured a fire ring, picnic table and patio. - Lee and Trace

All elec sites were taken on our first night, so we dry camped at a developed site ( table, fire ring, parking space). Next morning an elec site was vacated and we moved to it. We were two campers traveling together and asked and received permission for both to stay in one site. Pymt required for each. No problem w/ that. Stayed three nights. Very quiet and restful. Scenery is second to none. Will definitely be back. - PaleoTex

This is a review of the campground only. The hot springs are well maintained, clean, and very comfortable. Price includes use of the public and specific park facilities. The RV park is rustic. There were tall weeds, feral cats, and lots of dust. We were charged extra for 1 small dog, but there were unleashed dogs running throughout the park and no one bothered to clean up. Hook ups are standard, we had a pull through which was fairly level. We'd definitely go to the hot springs but probably stay at City of Rocks. - prius10

Hot springs and a quiet night or two of camping. One cannot go wrong. The clothing optional soak should be clothing mandatory, imho. However, this spot in the desert is worth the drive. - waterwalkin

The pull thru RV sites are long and easy to get in and out of. The main attraction of this place is the hot springs, which are nice and well maintained. There is no TV or wifi, and cell service can only be obtained on one side of the park, due to a big hill between there and the rest of the park. - KAP99

I love this park. It may be the most peaceful place we've ever camped. The couple that owns/runs the campground is as kind and helpful as they could be. The campground is almost 2 miles down a dirt road and more than 10 miles from the nearest town. While we were here the park was never even half full. Not great for the owners, but we loved it. We had the club house to ourselves and used it pretty much daily. It has a Wii, which our kids love, a pool table in poor repair (not that I'm complianing) and a kitchen. While the clubhouse is not kept very clean, there are also two restrooms with showers that are kept very clean. The laundry room consists of 2 very large washers and 2 very large dryers. You can do 2 or 3 loads of laundy in one of these massive machines which are paid for on the honor system (use them, keep track of your loads, and pay at checkout). That's really all that there is to the park. It's neat, simple, cheap, and peaceful. If that's what you're looking for, you'll love it. If you're looking for a resort-style campground with loads of amenities, keep looking. - JPen365

We stayed here for a couple of weeks. This is the most quiet and relaxing campground I have ever been to. The owners are wonderful and very helpful. This is not a destination resort style campground. There is no pool or playground and that suits us. The place is well maintained and spotless. There are many places to visit and sights to see within driving distance. Verizon Mifi and cell service worked very well here. You can't go wrong with this park. - RosieandThumper

This is a wonderful campground where you will find peace and quiet, without a lot of frills. Although there is not a lot of things found in many other parks, no pool, no scheduled activities, this campground is rated a 10 because everything they do have is meticulously maintained and spotlessly clean! The owners are there if you need anything, but never intrusive. The park is wide open, with huge pull through sites, all level gravel, and lots of shade trees at the sites. There is a laundry room, which operates on the honor system, with brand new washers and dryers, a fully equipped clubhouse with kitchen, book and movie exchange, a place for pets, if you have them, but most of all, what Temperate Zone has is that wonderful peace and tranquility you get being far from town and surrounded by desert vistas. This was our second stay here, the first time we came through we were only going to stay overnight and move on, but were forced to stay another two nights due to not feeling well. Then we decided to stay even longer because we found it so very relaxing, we ended up staying for two weeks!! If you enjoy getting away from it all, and don't need a pool to relax, Temperate Zone is definitely for you. - M. Campbell

The Owners were very nice and helpful. No grass for dogs. Last 7.5 miles of road was gravel and washboard. Would not recommend for Class A Motorhomes. The sites are very sloping. Kept loosing power at site. Could not use Washer and Dryer. - Wolfpugs

We have stopped 4 times into this beautiful quiet, scenic, friendly park on our way to and from Arizona. We usually stay for a week.
The owners and staff (mostly family run) are very friendly and hard working! All seasonal guests are extremely welcoming and included us on all events they planned i.e. ATV rides, pot lucks, parties and other outside excursions.
It is a working ranch, so you get to see the horses, cattle and other farm animals. The mountains surround the clean and well laid out campground. The scenery and peacefulness is addictive! - Doug and Barb Gilbart

As others have said, this is an out-of-the way park. The staff is great, the WiFi is pretty good, the desert scenery is good. No TV. The sites, roads etc are all gravel so expect some dust.
The road to the park is a washboard gravel and is about 7 miles. This park would be good for an extended stay if you have your supplies and do not need to "go to town" very often. I would not stay here for an overnight. - Tom-MNAK

Only draw back is the sites are narrow. Would have rated higher otherwise. Most sites are shaded, all are gravel but really pretty level and long. Restrooms are 1 mens, 1 womens and are huge and beautifully decorated. Very nice club house with Wi-Fi for guests. Gas, a good restaurant, and medical all close by. Managers and workers very nice and helpful. Would stay here again. - horsefolk

Camp hosts very hospitable. No 50 amp service was available when we were there - but had no problem. Some tree stumps that we had to maneuver around - but again - not a major problem. Owner said they were doing a clean up of them. Beautiful setting and overall nice park. Would definitely go back. Good selection of books and DVDs. - Firebee

Very hospitable owners and hosts. They go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable and trouble free. Convenient local services available. The Wal-Mart in Silver City is 20 minutes away for larger purchases. People in the area a very friendly. Horses and cattle can be viewed on a ranch across the road from the RV Park. - Humor

This is a wonderful park. Owners are as nice and helpful as can be. All services work well and are as promised. Laundry $ is reasonable and accessible 24 hours. Pizza delivery to your unit available! Our site was very level tho I think a couple of them may need some leveling. Water pressure was good. Free WIFI and cable. Verizon signal was good. Owners were knowledgeable and offered many suggestions on dining and touring choices. Park is quiet and very clean. Pool was closed for the season but looked well maintained. Grounds are all gravel but have many areas of lovely landscaping. Owners work hard to keep grounds graded. Nice little store with necessaries and gifts. Nice game room and lounge with TV and computer available. We were only going to stay a couple of nights and decided to stay 2 months! Rate is based on % of monthly rate of $400. Will definitely stay again! - oosuzieqr

This KOA is quiet. Many other KOAs we stayed at we not so quiet. Nice pool and enough room to leave the trailer hooked. - JM Outwest

We stayed 2 nights passing through the area to visit the nearby National Park Service sites.
The park is a few miles East of town along the major road (US 180) into Silver City. The road has multiple lanes near the park's entrance but has a center turn lane. Accessing the park requires a short drive along a paved road that changes to gravel. The park was built on rolling hilly ground so some of the roads and sites have interesting pitches.
The sites are a mixture of back-ins and P/T's. There seemed to be the extended stay sites. There was an escort to the site. This park didn't completely understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as some of the sites had a slight pitch potentially creating a levelling problem.
There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure didn't show any cable or broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was good. But only a few of the sites were occupied. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about the reception.
The designated fenced pet area was adequate to exercise a dog. It had a dirt surface. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. The pet area had bag dispensers and waste collection stations for waste.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.
Although it was nothing special, we would probably stay here again as there isn't much to choose from in the area. - bsb814

We were extremely happy with our nice week in this beautiful park. The sites are well-designed with a great deal of privacy and beautiful native vegetation. We were in Site 2, an easy pull-through with plenty of parking space. The clubhouse is very comfortable with a nice front porch with rocking chairs, particularly nice on a rainy day. The extensive DVD library supplemented the over the air TV, although we got all the basic channels. Nice clean bathrooms and laundry. The Wifi was the best I've ever had in an RV park - just like home! The price is very reasonable at $30 night for full hook-ups, although if you pay for 5 you get 2 more free, or a week for $150. The owners are wonderful, and will tell you cash only when you make your reservation, no credit cards. We made our reservation for next year already! - Bernalillo_Girl

No pool/playground, quiet, outstanding landscape, customer service is A1. Wifi was top-notch. Great location as a base camp to visit the mountains, forests, ruins, and the art community of Silver City. We filled a week with no problem. If nothing else watch the sunsets. I usually use a 7 rating for a park that does what it says. This park gets a 10 as it does it perfectly. A second wash machine and dryer would have been nice but obviously I am reaching for a problem. It is not a resort but a wonderful RV park. - gumper

We stayed in site #1. It was gravel, spacious, had some shade, and included a picnic table. The owner was very gracious. There is a men's and a women's restroom. The women's has a bathtub/shower. There's an exercise room, DVDs, a comfortable lounge all in a house on the property. All is available to those staying in the park. No one lives in the house - it's just for park visitors. - skidiver

Absolutely awful WiFi!! Ten years ago I reviewed this place. At that time it was clean and well-managed but the WiFi was worthless. A decade later in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century I can report the park is still clean and well-managed (but more permanent residents). Sadly, I must also report that the WiFi is still so bad that you can't even connect to pick up email when you are parked less than 50' from the antenna. Really! In 2016 in an urban setting (as urban as Silver City can be) these folks won't invest in the equipment required to deliver reasonable Internet access. If you are still living in the 1990's and happy with dial-up Internet access, this is the place for you. If you exist in the contemporary world and expect modern conveniences, skip this place. - garyeb

As others have mentioned, about the only issue I had with this park was the lack of a level site. This was my first visit. After calling ahead I arrived after the office was closed and pick up my site assignment. It had quite a down slope, and only after maneuvering my coach into about 4 different positions in the site was I able to circumvent the "excessive slope" warning on my leveling system. Once set up, however, I had a very pleasant 5-night stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending sights in the area to visit. Although very convenient to town, the park was very quiet and seemed more like it was out in the country. - Phaeton40AH

The sign says Starlight but it is now called Desert Vista RV Resort and is under new management. The motel and cafe are closed but the new restrooms and game room are nice. All sites are long pull through with full H/U including 50 amp. It's far enough from I-10 so there is no road noise. Mainly just a big open lot and good for overnight stays. - cuse44

Apartments in bad shape. Campers have to use very dirty bathrooms with a lot of bugs. Owner not friendly. Don't want Spanish people living there. Would not recommend. Closed pool because it is in very bad shape. - jeep
Oct 2006 - $22.00
Stayed 3 nights. We were in the back in site #3. Mega big rig pull thru sites, 40 by 80 ft. Lots of room to get in and out of the sites and around the campground. 5 channels on the antenna for TV. Can wash your RV at the site. Nice pool table. Excellent cell phone reception with Verizon. Complaints. Pea gravel. Train horn noise. Lots of yappy dogs. Roosters crowing at 6 AM to most of the day. - Tallboy

This is a decent, reasonably priced place to use as a base to explore the area as long as you don't mind being in an urban setting. I chose this place to stay because $175 for FHU for a week is a great value and because it was "walking distance" to the historic downtown area. Well, it probably is if you are younger than I and in better shape! For me, it was not a comfortable distance. That was ok though because I found the town disappointing. Not nearly as charming as I expected and very few restaurants. The RV park was very clean, owners very friendly, and all the hookups worked fine. Most sites are used by long term residents, though, and there aren't a lot of spaces available for short term stays. Some of the sites are also quite small and some seem like they would be very difficult for a big rig to access so I suggest calling ahead. The laundry room is small with four washers and dryers but the prices are good and everything was in working order. No coin changer, though. The restroom/showers were also clean, bright, and modern. Especially appreciated the holders in the shower stalls for your bath products and a hair dryer, at least in the ladies' shower. Good pressure and lots of hot water too. Also, a nice size dog-run that the pup enjoyed using. Wi-fi even worked some of the time. Verizon signal was strong. My only complaint was that although the park itself was very quiet there were emergency vehicles racing by a block away with sirens blaring at least a half dozen times a day. In 19 months on the road, I've never experienced anything like it. Guess all the emergency services must be located nearby. Probably would not stay again simply because we prefer to be further away from town, but that's the only reason. - Pdxjoanne

We were told $30 cash $33 credit card. Checks are $3.00 a night more. The trailers are packed on top of each other. Dogs are an issue. The camp hosts were friendly and the neighbors were friendly. - L Duffey

Nice, quiet park. Our site was tight for our 36 ft. travel trailer and was a back in site. Very hard to get into due to railing along the restroom/shower facilities. Would stay here again if could get a pull through. Most spaces are taken up by permanent renters. - DRBurns
