When we arrived, the campground looked abandoned. We knocked on the Manger's office, but no one answered. We decided to drive through the park to see if we could find someone. We were chased down by a lady in a truck, who when we stopped, proceeded to scream at us about not being able to drive through the park. It was surreal. The kids' playground was rundown and covered with weeds. There was horse scat all over the place. Definitely won't go back. We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners are a wonderful couple from Amsterdam. We all felt immediately welcome and at glad to call 'Hombre' our home for a few days. The owners were incredibly helpful and run an efficient yet very relaxed campground. Our friends stayed in a very cozy cabin in the same park that was an incredible deal at $75/night. We all rented skis for $10/day. This made skiing very convenient. The downside (if any) would be the distance to town (25 min) and the high cost of the RV sites. We should have opted for a site without the shelter ($35) since it was too cold to be outside most of the time. Site prices still seems high when you compare our friend's cozy cabin with all the amenities provided for a mere $40 more, we felt the prices for a plot of dirt and utilities to be a bit high since we were providing everything else for ourselves and there were hardly any other campers. We should have gotten low season rates. I also noticed that RVers are charged daily for firewood while cabins, get all the firewood they want. I think they are trying to discourage outdoor fires, but with already high site prices, I think this should be rethought. We also had to pay $3/day for our dog. Fortunately, with so few campers around, he was able to run free with the owners' dogs which made it worth that charge. In busy season, I'm sure this would not be allowed. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Travel Trailer.

This place is HORRIBLE. It is run down, dirty, expensive and definitely the worst RV park we have ever stayed at. The sites are very hard to get to (up a steep hill) have weeds all over and it is very unkempt. There was a big pile of animal waste (looked to big to be a dog) right by the office. They also charge extra for everything, such as if guests want to stop by, if you want to have a fire, etc. Will never stay here again. We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Fifth Wheel.

Tortuous entry, were told we would need 4 wheel drive low to get to site. Super pull through site not bad when you eventally get there. 15 miles out of town, remote & secluded. $3 daily fee for our small dog. Bathrooms & showers very poor, never cleaned. Pool area filthy. Very run down, badly needs update investment. Very expensive and they charge extra for just about everything, would only return if the price was a lot cheaper. Only redeeming factor were the pretty views. We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Travel Trailer.

We had a wonderful stay at this park. The staff was very helpful and always friendly and smiling. We went horseback riding one day with our 9-year old novice granddaughter, and by the time she got back, she felt like an equestrienne. Now we have to buy a horse! Stay at here and have a great stay!

What a fine place! The couple that runs this place are friendly, helpful, and fun. There are also many things to do at the park. We enjoyed the horses, pool/sauna, and the game room. Every site has great views and beautiful trees. We plan on coming back again and again. We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this rv park because, according to their website, they have all these great activities for families. When I called to reserve two sites, I specifically told them that I needed two spaces next to each other. The host assured me she had reserved two spaces side by side, and she even gave me the space numbers we would be in. However, when we arrived, it was a totally different story. They gave me two spaces diagonally from one another. The spaces had another camper between us which was very inconvenient. When I told them the spaces were supposed to be together, and gave them the numbers I was assigned, they said it was taken and we'd have to stay in the spots they assigned us. Ridiculous! Well the only "great" thing about this place was the view. The pool was disgusting. The water was cloudy and green, and the room it was in smelled very bad. The basketball court they claimed to have was nothing more than a goal stuck in a field of grass and dirt (no pavement to actually bounce the ball). The hosts at this park were not very helpful. Everytime I needed to go to the office to ask a question, no one was ever there. I wouldn't want to stay here again. It needs a lot of updating, and they need to tie down their dog. They expect everyone there to tie down their dogs, well they should lead by example and do it themselves! We camped at Alto Hombre Gordito Hideout in a Travel Trailer.

When we first checked in the managers were nice enough but by the end of the stay the man was almost harassing. They did not keep the noise levels down by other campers, but seemed obsessed with our fire to the point that he sat at the end of our site to watch us. The spa and pool were so dirty that there is no way that I would get into them. The location was very pretty but I will not be treated as he treated us and will not return.
