Friendly management, good gravel, some grass, some trees. Long-term folks keep their sites nice. Full hook-ups worked well. Missed having a picnic table, but managed without. After talking to a couple of folks, found out that anywhere in this region where there is pipeline or oil patch work, you should always make a reservation for a spot. We wanted something halfway between Roswell and Carlsbad, as we were seeing caverns, but didn't want to take 2-lane roads west. We would stay here again.
Our spot was very level, and we had full hookups. The management had put down all new gravel and smoothed it nicely. The showers were clean and the laundry was small but nice, 3 washers/2 dryers. Management was very friendly. Not much shade but we don't usually expect it in this area. Some train noise but nothing too bad. Some stockyard smell, but again, we expected it being in this area. In November, it probably isn't quite as bad as high summer. We would stay here again.
We only stayed here one night. Sites are gravel, and most have shade. As far as big rig friendly, I would say maybe, not yes or no. We had a 38 ft. motorhome with car on a dolly and we fit in site 6, but I could see some problems for swinging into the site or other sites. There are mostly seasonal people here, so it would be a good idea to call and reserve, as there aren't that many sites for travelers. Our area was clean, hookups were good. We didn't use or look at the showers/restrooms/laundry. Registration lady was nice enough. The one drawback for sure is the drive going down into the campground; it's a bit steep and we went very slowly and yet still scraped the dolly a bit. We would stay here again.
Sites are mostly gravel, or old asphalt. Full hookups, but some of them look as though they could use some TLC. Ours worked fine however. There is shade, but mostly for seasonal rigs. Plenty of grass if your dog behaves well and can be off leash to chase ball/frisbee. Next to a Tyson plant, but we didn't notice much in the way of bugs or odor. We didn't use the laundry or showers/restrooms, but did check them out. Pretty basic, could maybe use a bit more cleaning. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. We were there 2 nights so we could see some of Buffalo National River and Ozark National Forest. We would probably stay again.
After reading other reviews, we decided to stay here for one night on our way south. The manager was very friendly and helpful. Sites are level and long; nice to have a small patio with concrete picnic table. We had no trouble with electric, water, or sewer. Nicely landscaped area. We didn't have time to walk their trails, but would like to if we come this way again. The two biggest drawbacks are the steep drive coming in and interstate noise, but we also know that any campground by a major road will have noise and so we don't expect any real quiet as you would have in the boondocks. As for the drive, I was expecting it after reading one review so drove in very carefully. There is another driveway, but it would bring you up to the office the wrong way and you would end up trying to turn around. We would stay here again.
Nice enough park to spend time at while waiting for service at Winnebago, or for a few days of fishing, relaxing, biking. The city has been putting new gravel on sites but the sites do need smoothing a bit more. I put "no" for showers/restrooms, but if there had been something between "no" and "yes", I would have chosen that. Shower areas and stools and sinks were clean, but the whole inside of the building needed to be swept of bugs and spider webs. They have 4 spots at the dump station and 4 hoses to fill water. Obviously new in the past year or so. No problem getting some TV stations with antenna. We would stay there again.
We came here based on one other review. Not a bad place for a one-nighter, especially with windy or bad weather days. Laundry and shower/restrooms very clean. Didn't get many TV stations with antenna. Looks to have been a mobile home park before the tornado. With more work, it could be quite nice. Level the sites and put gravel on them, and have some local teen pick up cigarette butts and bits of garbage. Really weren't any pull throughs as long-term residents have them. Would stay again on the road.
We stayed here several nights and had a nice level pull through. Showers/restrooms very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. The lake is nice to walk around. Not too far into the Walmart or eating places. Being New Mexico, and in drought, vegetation is suffering but there is still quite a bit of green. The small hot spring tub was relaxing. Would return again.
We stayed 2 nights on the way home, and are very impressed with the cleanliness and layout of the park. Staff are very friendly. Laundry, showers are spotless. We didn't use the dog wash but may next time. Not all that far to a Walmart or Dennys, and the walking path across the street is nice. We would stay again and recommend this to our friends. Rate reflects Passport of America. A good jumping off spot to see Chloride and Winston and other historic sites.
