Staffers Joann and Ray were outgoing and helpful. Well kept grounds. Very clean restrooms. Large, clean dog area. Several hiking trails just outside the park. Site was large enough to accommodate both our 36' Motorhome and towed. Mix of monthly and nightly customers. Park also had "lodges", "cabins" and tent sites. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, about a very scenic 2 hour drive away. Make a loop of it by going through Mimbres and Pinos Altos, in whatever sequence you choose. We had a fabulous breakfast at 3 Questions Coffeehouse in Mimbres on way to dwellings and early dinner at Buckhorn Saloon in Altos Pinos on way back.

Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery has good brews plus pub fare with a New Mexican twist. A favorite of locals.

This is one of the better KOAs we have stayed in. We went here with an RV group and not sure what we actually paid. Only complaint (but it was with a group) is they stuck us in a small spot for our rig and only 30 amp which doesn't really matter unless we run air. Typical gravel spots, some with picnic tables. People friendly. We would stay here again. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

Make reservations with specific needs request as the campground is small with limited number of sites. We would request Premium site 14 or 15 due to the pitch of other sites.

This is a typical gravel campground with trees to help separate the spots. There were very few people there (probably mostly permanent) so it seemed spacious, but the spots are fairly close. Room for a picnic table. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The campground was clean and it was fairly close to Silver City (about 3.5 miles). We stayed here in a 29 ft RV. We would stay here again. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park, very clean restroom, didn't use the showers, but they were very clean. Friendly check in with a free cookie. They had pizza that night, nice touch, but we didn't have any. All roads are gravel, not super level, but not bad. Great cable, & acceptable wi-fi, & good hook-ups Sites are kind of close, but they picnic table, BBQ & a nice tree. Pool was not yet open for the season, but it was a nice size. We plan to come back because it's location is good for Gila park. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

Very clean campground. Staff was wonderful. Great shower/restroom facilities. Not much shade, sites pretty close together. Felt it was a pretty expensive campground. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Our rate was a rally rate. The current owners purchased this park in July of this year and are working very hard to spruce it up. They are very friendly and helpful. As another said, the TV is a bit of a hassle due to Comcast's scrambling the signal to every site. The owners are doing all they can to deal with this. It is a typical KOA with gravel roads and sites. Some like this, some don't... We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The hosts here are extremely friendly. We stayed in one of their big rig sites as we needed 50 amp service. The turns to get into the site were a bit sharp but after some maneuvering we got in OK. The web site says these sites have cable but their service provider has them set up so everyone needs a box which has to be connected to the back of the TV in the rig. As most folks will know already, this is no simple task. We finally gave up and just used our antenna. Everything else worked great and the site was level but a bit short for a really big rig. I would have rated this park higher but the cable set up is really strange and the price is high for not being able to use this facility. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I disagree with other reviews. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. They have a winter rate through February. Our rate reflected electricity and water only. The site was level, and they had a very clean shower/restroom. We stayed here last year and will stay here again. Also you get a free cookie on check-in. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

We like the park. In-town convenience and out-of-town quietness. Quite a bit of space between sites and a lot of natural vegetation. Native vegetation means all trees are short and the sites are OK for satellite. We were close to the Wi-Fi antenna and were pleased with it. Our site was level enough, but we saw others that were uneven. If this is important to you, you might want to look at the site before you accept it. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA was OK but could be better maintained. The roadways are not paved... could be nasty in wet weather... and the dog park could use some sprucing up. We only stayed one night and did not use any facilities. Based on some phone calls I made prior to going to this KOA, I suspect this campground would compare well to others in the immediate area; if Silver City is on your travel agenda, this KOA would be a good bet.

Great management - very friendly and helpful. Somewhat spartan park, but all the facilities were first class - especially a small store that provides a lot of basic RV needs. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Silver City KOA in a Travel Trailer.
