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.

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.
