The ONLY thing this campground has going for it is location, location, location. If you want to stay in the Park and require hookups, it's the only game in town, and Xanterra apparently runs it with that knowledge. The sites are small and rather unkempt. There are no showers or laundry facilities (they are at nearby Mather Campground, but the dryers don't work well), and no play facilities of any type for families (yes, this is a national park, but little ones can only hear "look at the spectacular scenery" so much before they want to play). The campground could be--and should be--much nicer for the amount you pay. By the way, the campground is adjacent to a trailer park, many of which are run down and somewhat scary looking. Granted, I'd stay there again, but only because this is the only option.
There was a very friendly staff, nice pool, good playground for the kids. Great proximity to Petrified Forest National Park, and there are numerous eating establishments nearby. Campground also offered a "chuckwagon dinner" with live music, at a reasonable price. There aren't a lot of camping options in this part of Arizona, and we'd gladly stay here again. The only drawback is that the campground is essentially one very large gravel parking lot, with almost no delineation between the interior roads and the sites. This doesn't help the dust, which already is omnipresent due to the desert location.
The location for this campground is nice, set amongst the Ponderosa pines. It's close to Flagstaff Mall and a Safeway grocery store, but is surprisingly quiet given its proximity to busy Route 89. The roads are paved, but somewhat narrow and windy (not a problem for us towing a popup, but could be a problem for someone in a big rig). Staff was friendly, Wi-Fi connection was good, and proximity to the dozens of sights in the Flagstaff area is good. We'd stay there again.
This is an outstanding resort if one is looking for a place catering primarily to the big-rig motorhome crowd. Our pop-up was a little out of place! Sites were very nice (pebblestone instead of the dusty crushed rock you find in a lot of places), great pool and hot tub. Laundry facilities were excellent, and the on-site restaurant had good food at a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly, and were very helpful in quickly fixing a broken stabilizer jack at the on-site RV dealership. Given the paucity of places in Tucson that will even accept children, we'd stay here again. Wi-fi connection was excellent.
Campground was clean and quiet, with spectacular views of Las Cruces and the Organ Mountains. It's several miles outside of LC on I-10. Pool was great (even had a true "deep" end), playground was typical KOA. There was no hot water due to a gas line break, but they were working on it (or at least they said they were). We would stay here again if we are in the LC area.
Park is nicely laid out, extremely quiet, and very clean, with friendly staff (despite the Memorial Day weekend crowds). Bathrooms were clean. Kids loved the roadrunners and rabbits that wander the grounds. Pool was far too small for a park this size; although the listed capacity was 22 people, there always were far more in the pool (could be dangerous for small children). Wi-fi connection was non-existent at our site. Be forewarned that the campground is well north of Carlsbad but that many mapping software programs still list it at the old location in the city itself.
Friendly front desk, immaculate grounds. Only minor noise from nearby I-40. Wi-fi connection was very spotty, and very slow. Pool and hot tub were great and bathrooms were clean and in great condition. On western outskirts of Amarillo, about a mile from the Cadillac Ranch.
Owners were very friendly and obviously are working hard to make this a nice campground. Sites were shady. Although the campground is near I-44, the noise from the interstate is negligible; there was some noise from nearby truck stops. Our kids loved the fish pond and duck pond; you can catch and release in the duck pond.
Sites are good size and in a forest of tall-trees, providing excellent shade. Some sites would be difficult for someone with slide-outs, due to trees close to the pad. Bathhouse (toilets and showers) were run-down and decrepit. Mosquitoes were a problem once the sun went down, but not bad during the day.
As is typical of Missouri state parks, the campground and sites were excellent. The shower and restroom facilities were adequate, but in a little need of repair. Swimming pool was large, clean, and had both a shallow play area for kids and a deep area for grown-ups. I would stay here again.
Restroom facilities consisted of a filthy, unlit, unvented outhouse. Shower facilities were no better. In addition, Lake Minatare had the worst mosquitoes I have ever experienced (and I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay). If I ever go to Scottsbluff again, I'll stay in a hotel before I stay at Lake Minatare.
Campsites are very narrow and often not level. The campground is next to Rt. 265 and traffic noise is a big problem. Staff was friendly and the firewood was reasonably priced and dry. Restrooms were spectacular and must have been recently renovated--ceramic tile floors and walls, very nice fixtures, spotless clean.
