Warning! When the opportunity arrives this RV Park will rip you off. We signed up for a month with plans to stay through the winter. After all, the price was right, and the RV Park was far away from the city atmosphere of Phoenix. Unfortunately, this RV Park is now catering to attract workers for the nearby nuclear power plant. Those workers come and go at all hours of the day and night. There is a good deal of traffic noise from those workers. That noise is combined with the loud I-10 traffic noise. We decided to leave after 20 days and find a quiet park elsewhere for the winter. We did not ask for a refund on the monthly price. We did request the unused portion of the $50 electric deposit. Management refused to return our entitled electric refund. Shame on them, and they have a well developed system to avoid returning your electric deposit. They never did ask why we were leaving early, and they did not say thank you for returning. We will not return.

My plan was to spend a full month at this RV Park. Instead I stayed just one night. Since my last visit a year ago, an enormous towering Las Vegas style neon sign, advertising the casino, has been installed. An unacceptable eyesore for me and considerable night time neon light pollution. It is absolutely incredible how such an attractive RV Park can have such remarkable unleveled concrete sites. There are a few level sites and none were available for me. Most Motorhome owners may not realize the damaging stress an unleveled concrete site inflicts on the chassis. The Wi-Fi is poor, the pool is extremely small and an overnighter must ask a staff member for a key to the restroom. Those restrooms are closed when you most need a restroom. By first appearance the sites look spacious. They are not spacious once your neighbors move-in. I think the next time Good Sam inspects this place they may want to actually walk around and look at the sites. Stayed here one night, and I will not return.

This is an outstanding small RV Park - well taken care of and reflecting pride in ownership. Like previous reviewers stated, this is a great place to stay. West Clear Creek flows adjacent to the RV Park and is accessible by a short level walk. The creek provides fishing and swimming opportunities. There are pools large enough to actually swim laps once the water warmed up by the middle of May. Wi-Fi is provided and for my Site the signal was too weak. Plenty of shade is provided by trees and selective sites can obtain satellite TV without much trouble. The only negative for this RV Park is the weekend Highway 260 noise and the noise created, at times, by the low rent district neighborhood across the highway. Must not forget, I rate the showers here the best of any RV Park in Arizona and perhaps the nation. I stayed here for over a month and I will not hesitate to stay here again.

This quiet, dust free, away from the highway, RV Resort no longer has a viable green 18-hole golf course. The course was abandon three years ago. The exercise room is gone, as well. I wasn't set on playing golf, and it was an enjoyable place to stay for a week. The paved access roads are plenty wide, and the back-in top-notch gravel sites are spacious. Some are adjacent to a 9-Hole short course green zone. A few park models are mixed-in with the level sites. Tengo Wi-Fi is offered for a fee. Verizon 3G works great since there is a tower across the main road. The place was less than half full for February. Perhaps the odd trash rules, guest are required to uncover the pool if they want to swim (not an easy task), the pet policy, and lack of upkeep is driving snow birders elsewhere. Just the same I enjoyed the extra space during my stay. Plenty of adjacent trails to trail bike and hike. I am not sure if I will return.

The previous review makes a good point about this RV Park. The place is double charging those who select a 50 Amp site or a premium site. Why bother with the extra charge for a 50 Amp site when electric is not included? We have been here before and we once gave the place a perfect ten. No more! We once found this an ideal location for star gazing. Now there are bright security lights and the clubhouse is decked-out in bright lights to appear as a bright sore thumb in the night. The maintenance of the clubhouse has gone downhill and the indoor pool area is a mess with dirt, cobwebs and insects. The doors stay open all day so the bugs flood into restrooms. The clubhouse could use a good make-over. The rate reflects Passport America. Not sure if we will return unless we see better reviews in the future. They charge to much.

The time of year and the campground selected can make a big difference in the perception of this State Park. This rating is for the main campground, which is situated above the lake and has three separate loops. Two of the loops are entirely reservation sites and none of the sites have 50 Amp. They are 30 Amp and there are no shade trees. Each has a solid ramada with a concrete pad and grill. Interior roads and sites are dusty gravel. Most of the sites are pull-through. Those in the Stallion Loop are the most spacious and not parallel to the interior road. Access to the lake is via the boat ramp road and the lake level is very low. The boating and weekend crowd on a Friday in August is missing in action. Perhaps because of the low water levels. Verizon has a strong signal here and so does the 3G aspect. We will likely return here.

I really enjoyed my stay at this under used Arizona State Park, partially due to the appearance of the campground and partially due to the lake. There are an assortment of mostly level sites available for an RV. The full hook-up sites are crowded together, the most popular, a lack of privacy, and they do have the most shade. There are a few back-in sites with 50 Amp and they are nearest to the lake, which is well below normal levels. There are three 100 foot long pull-through sites with 30 Amp and they are the most spacious and most quiet of the sites. Each site has a solid large ramada with a concrete patio. Cell phone service can be obtained here with a reliable provider. Signal strength is strongest at the picnic tables near the petroglyph trail head. There is no 3G or better service here. I stayed at Site 13 for four nights and found Site 14 an attraction for the rude style RV people. I moved over to a pull-through site and decided to extend my stay. The lake is suitable for swimming and a host of other water recreational activities. None of the camp sites are near the lake. Each is a good walk from the current shoreline. The rate reflects water and electric site fee. I look forward to returning to this State Park.

We have been here before and still find this RV Park an excellent overnight stop. On previous stops we regretted not visiting the Crater. This time we did and it's a well worthy site not to miss. It appears the trees and grounds have been receiving more water and care. Some sites do have partial shade at times during the day. The same long term residents are still here and their degraded RVs have become an eyesore. The adjacent dirt road, perhaps old Highway 66, is now gated closed with no trespassing signs. The road was once great for bike rides and walking. The rate reflects a SKP 15% discount. Will likely stop here again in the future.

We stopped here for a few days and managed to endure the Tucson heat. The place was obviously different then during our one month stay of April. Owner's and staff were not present as they were the later part of April. There were a few long term guest present and we selected one of the sites with the taller trees for some shade. We talked to a few of the other guests, and they too, have not seen anyone taking care of the place or the owners the past two months. Still, a great place in comparison to other Tucson RV Park, especially at the Passport America rate. The WiFi was working well and the laundry room was open. The clubhouse was closed as it was the end of April. It was nice and quiet except for a guest in a Park Model or onsite rental trailer who had a barking dog. We hope the place is open in the future so we can stay again.

This well organized and maintained Escapee park served as an excellent base camp for exploring the southeast Arizona area. We were assigned to a spacious site on the end with some landscaping including a tree. My recommendation, if possible, avoid allowing the staff to arbitrarily assigning your RV to a site. Check the sites first and see what is available. There are plain gravel sites with just the utilities, and other sites with landscaping, pads and even a few with shade trees. Free WiFi is available, only, in the extremely large and well equipped clubhouse. WiFi can be purchased from a private provider. An open area on the west side of the park offers trail bike riding and desert shrub hiking. This place is dark at night because those foolish security lights are lacking here. The place is two miles from the I-10 rail corridor. When the wind is right the train horns can be heard, well. I don't know how anybody in town can get any sleep with all the trains going by. Some Engineers really like the sound of their horns. The rate is a reflecting of one month stay. We will return, again.

This is an excellent RV Park, and perhaps the best along the I-17 corridor. Good Sam provided it a rating of 10-10-10. Not so in my opinion! There are 158 sites and at best only 30 are close to being level. Some offering an extraordinary leveling challenge. I recommend checking and finding a suitable level site before getting assigned to a site. At first glance the sites appear to be spacious. Not so if another rig gets parked to your rear. Then you'll find your RV just a few feet from a neighbor. The utilities here are top notched and positioned in an ideal location at each site. The Wi-Fi was great and without any sort of problem. The exercise equipment is new and provides the opportunity to get a real weight lifting work-out. The grounds are well landscaped and well maintained. The entire place is well maintained and there is absolutely no rift raft here. I heard some noise from I-17 and it was easy to tune-out. For me, there were far to many security lights, which are unnecessary. Why do RV Parks think they need to light-up the place like a 24 hour truck stop? Excellent accommodating staff. I stayed here three nights at Passport America rate. I will stay here again.

This desert style RV Park has experienced some major improvements since our last visit this past January. For us it's the most appealing RV Park east of the California border along the I-8 corridor and before Tucson. The most obvious improvement is the paved access lanes. Hopefully, it will abate the dust problem here. The Wi-Fi has been upgraded and offers remarkable fast speed. The landscape has been upgraded with more drought resistant plants and the trees are getting water. There is a good desert view and an excellent desert atmosphere here. We will likely stay here again.

The place boasts it’s the best small RV Park in Texas. We agree it’s an extraordinary RV Park offering a pleasant stop for an overnight stay. It is an impressive place in a beautiful rural setting. The RV Park is located within a pecan grove along the Guadalupe River and five miles north of Ingram. There is a large immaculate rock house serving has a clubhouse. It is perhaps the best clubhouse we have enjoyed. A variety of birds are plentiful here and the adjacent property has some sort of exotic deer. Pools of the river were full of visible catfish and bass. The wide access roads are concrete and each site has an extended wide concrete pad. The sites are somewhat spacious with pecan trees. We found the staff here to be friendly and accommodating to guest. The entrance road is narrow and permits the passage of only one vehicle. The narrow entrance road was the only reason we did not provide the place a perfect score of ten. We could only stay one night and would make this place our number one choice when we return to the area. A great value at the Passport America rate.

We consider this to be an excellent RV Park. We do not feel it was a near perfect RV park for us as indicated by Good Sam. It is a good value at the Passport America Rate. The concrete pad sites are situated around a lake. Even though there are 140 sites the place does not feel crowed. The lake sites cost more. The best sites for a motorhome are the off-lake sites. Pay less and back-in to one of those for a good view of the lake. There is no clubhouse, no library, no exercise room, and few on-site activities. The Swan is a big plus on the lake. It’s an excellent place for an overnight stop. We will likely stay here again in the future. We stayed here in a Motorhome.

This is a public campground operated by the city of Greenville. The actual name of the campground is Sherling Lake Park. The campground is an excellent overnight stop with wide paved access roads and paved sites. We had some issues here with the electrical utility box at the site. Our surge protector kept tripping, Site 39, and likely due to power fluctuations. Perhaps it was just restricted to our site and it stopped a couple hours after we arrived. The restrooms are aged wooden structures and there was mold or rotting wood around the base of each shower. There is a combination of pull throughs and back-ins. Some are spacious and some are not so spacious. Some have full hook-ups and some have just water and electric. The Wi-Fi worked well and fast. There are to many street lights here. We would likely stay here again in the future.

We found this RV Park by checking the Georgia Passport America listings. Easily, missed driving north on Highway 41 because there is just one small sign out front. It is a small RV Park and a new RV Park, which opened 3-months ago. There are 10-sites and eight of them are long pull throughs. Each of the pull throughs are directed towards a small lake and a scenic open field. The place was adequate for an overnight stop. There are a number of problems, which may be corrected if the need for improvements are recognize by the owners. The gravel based parking pads are narrow and not very level. The exit side of each pull-through is a tight turn with the lake on the immediate right hand side. The full hook ups are excellent. Some sites have a table. Some sites have an aerial device for local TV channels. The sites are somewhat spacious with low landscape shrubs between the sites. The newly planted trees will eventually provide shade. There is a rail line adjacent to the property and trains do pass-by from time to time. If we pass this way again we will stop here again.

The campground of this Florida state park is in need of a makeover. An upgrade for this aged park ought to be a priority. Big rigs beware. I would not recommend any RV rig over 38 feet to make an attempt to stay here. Every site is in a heavy wooded area with numerous tree limbs hanging low. There are many good size trees or palm trunks directly alongside the narrow access loop roads. Every site is a back-in and most are not nearly long enough for the average size RV. Just because the site length is indicated on Reserve America does not mean the rig will fit under the tree branches. Our rig is 36 feet and I'm not sure how we managed to get into our assigned site without doing any damage. This is a great place for an RV under 30 feet. The Coquina loop is the nearest one to the beach. Yet the only access to the beach was by way of a paved road to the beach day use parking area. The restrooms look 100 years old and for us not cleaned. The beach is great. The campground is well over-rated and there is little feeling of camping on the beach. We stayed just one night. If we get a smaller RV we may come back.

This State Park campground is on the beach. The surf of the Atlantic Ocean can be heard and seen. Just a narrow rise of dunes separates the campground from the beach. The view of the ocean for us was outstanding. There are sites on the beach side and they appear to be more level and longer. The turn into the campground, tight entrance through a control gate, narrow access lane, back-in sites and tight turn-around could be a big challenge for any rig over 38-feet. Most sites are spacious and some have the short palms for privacy. The beach is fantastic here. The ocean temperature was 74 for us and the wave surfing was great. The place is on the beach and the value for the price is outstanding. If we return to Florida this place will be number one on the list.

This resort served as an excellent base camp for us. The place is actually closer to Mims, two miles, than to Titusville. It was nice to stay at a place with no Park Models. There was an assortment of different sites for us and they are all spacious back-ins except for the rally sites. The entire resort has an excellent lay-out and has a well maintained attractive appearance. Much of the natural wooded habitat is remaining for the Hammock sites and the south side, which we were on, appears to be the most secluded, darkest, and quiet. The north side borders the rowdy brightly lighted KOA park. The Grove sites are immaculate in an open area with a few remaining grapefruit trees. Many sites have a level concrete pad and others have a level packed solid limestone pavement pad. There are several small ponds supposedly with fish. I was not able to confirm the claim by process of fishing. The trees blocked our satellite reception. It didn’t matter since there was cable with plenty of channel selection. There was no Wi-Fi during our stay. The pool was a big disappointment. They claim a lap pool and I expect such a pool to be long enough for swimming a healthy lap. The lap pool is just a short wading spot with unheated water. Cape Canaveral Seashore was 18 miles away, Merritt Island NWR at 12 miles and there is the potential to watch a space launch from this RV Resort. We stayed here at the Passport America rate for two nights. If we are ever back this way we will stay here again.

We found this RV Resort, favoring Park Models, to be an adequate two night stop between our destination stops on the Thanksgiving weekend. Since the past historic reviews the place may have changed. Those changes may not have been in favor of the RV Traveler. The staff and/or owner appeared to be operating unprofessional and they lied to us. When we made the reservation they claimed only one site left. We were so lucky. They made the same claim upon our arrival and we had no choice of sites. Interesting how all those invisible Motorhomes and trailers were occupying sites appearing empty. Poorly marked check-in parking was on a private site and the office has limited hours and closed on the weekend. The office was not easy to find from inside the park. Our site was one of the deluxe clubhouse sites with a solid concrete pad and concrete patio. The pad was an engineering wonder since it was so un-leveled. The deluxe sites are very spacious with nothing but mowed weedy grass between the sites. The sites are either near the frequently used rail line and highway or near the open garbage trailer and sewage plant. We got to watch the residents bring their trash to the maintenance yard. There is no table at the site, there is no cable, and there is no Wi-Fi unless an extra fee is paid. Access lanes have tight turns bordered by high yellow steel post, which have the potential to ruin the side of an RV. We barely got out unscratched. Other turns and corners have white metal stakes to catch an RV. There is a terrific large pool here for lap swimming. One of the best we have seen. The adjacent lake is an appealing attraction with potential for fishing. The lake is currently choked with pond weed two feet below the surface. We stayed here at the Passport America rate, which was padded by extra cost. We will likely avoid this place in the future.

This RV Resort served as a pleasant base camp for us for a week. There were plenty of sites available upon our arrival and the staff allowed us to make the selection. We found the most practical sites here to be the pull throughs, which are together in one row. They are partially shaded by some very tall pines and are not stuck in a sea of Park Models. The sites have solid and wide concrete pads and an adjoining concrete patio slab. Some are spacious and some are a bit tight on one side. There are a number of quality back-in sites with concrete pads scattered about the resort. There are three lakes and I found at least two of them to be well stocked with a variety of catch and release fish. There is a large sparkling magnificent pool and a hot spa. Residents here are friendly and quiet. There was road construction on Highway 41 adjacent to the resort making entering and exit somewhat difficult. There is no cable here, but satellite TV was obtained. The Wi-Fi here is excellent with a very strong signal. The rate shown was a weekly Passport America rate. We would likely stay here again.

This review is for the Palmetto Ridge campground, which is one of three campgrounds within the State Park. The campground is well designed, well maintained with appealing spacious sites. Each site is level with a pad of solid packed limestone gravel. The access lanes of the loops are paved and wide enough to handle big rigs. At least three of the pull throughs have a length exceeding 100-feet. There is plenty of the native Florida vegetation to provide a feeling of privacy. Satellite reception is good for the pull through sites because they have fewer trees. Verizon service here is very weak and there is no Wi-Fi at the campgrounds. This campground has sewer connections and they are not well placed. The connection is above ground and there are no threads. This engineering wonder makes dumping the tanks an enduring struggle. We do not recommend any RV over 30-feet to stay at one of the other two campgrounds. Both are prehistoric and ought to be demolished. We would like to return to Palmetto Ridge Campground.

This a well maintained RV Park on the Little Manatee River, a few miles south of Ruskin, and adjacent to Highway 41. The majority of the occupants during our stay were the early Snowbirders and a few long term or seasonal residents. Everyone we met were very friendly and helpful. The staff here is accommodating and professional. We had a deluxe site and they are much more spacious than the standard sites. Our site like many other deluxe sites have a few well placed trees providing periods of partial shade. Each site has an extended concrete patio. The RV pad is grass or packed crush shell based gravel. The access lanes are paved. There is an attractive moderate size pool adjacent to a functional clubhouse. We really liked the well maintained docks because they provided us with a safe place to fish the river. Across the highway there is a rail line with activity three to four times a day. There is a rail crossing across from the RV Park so the train horn is loud. There is also, periods of traffic noise. We stayed here at the Passport America rate for five days. We would stay here, again, only at the discount rate.

This is one of our favorite Florida places now and wished we had a boat. Access to the lakes are restricted to hiking, bikes, or by boat. There is a lot of water here, with gators, and some terrific fishing opportunities. There are two camping loops in a secluded quiet woodland area. Each site has plenty of shade, wild turkeys, deer and armadillos. During the weekdays the only noise comes from owls and distant air boats. The campground lanes are paved and previous post indicated they are good for big rigs. Perhaps if one drives really slow. I would not advise a 40' or bigger on the 3-mile entrance road and narrow campground lanes. There are plenty of curves, twist and trees to encourage stressful driving. Sites are composed of crushed shells and soft sand. We had site 47 and was able to obtain satellite TV. Verizon 3G was hit or miss and on some nights no Verizon. An RVer looking for the Snail Kite will likely find one out on the Gobbler Trail. We would of liked to stay longer.

We did a weekend stay here and I don't agreed with the previous high reviews. It is a good city RV Park situated in a residential and business area east of Winter Haven. There is a Wal-Mart super center adjacent to the RV Park. The RV Park and the adjacent areas are flooded with street lights and flood lights. It is nice and bright here at night. There was considerable traffic noise, people noise and noise from the RV Park's sewer treatment ponds. We stayed here at the Passport America rate and probably ended up with a sub-par site because of the membership. There are some really nice spacious, shaded, sites here with cracked concrete pads. Then there are the sites perhaps designated for over nighters or the lower paying guest. Our site was composed of chunky gravel and goat heads. The sewer connection was just a plug cap to a hole in the ground. The space between the utility box and patio slab was very tight, which made pulling into the pull through from a narrow paved lane difficult. The heated pool here is large, clean and great for lap swimming. There are few books in the library and the recreation building was closed each day. The Wi-Fi did not work so well one night and then the next it was okay. The cable TV provided offers an amazing 99 channels. There is good and there is bad here at this RV Park. We hope not to find our selfs in a position needing to stay here in the future.

This is a gem of a campground situated between Dixie Lake and Hammond Lake. It provided us with a feeling of isolation, especially on the weekdays. The campground is well designed and well maintained with three separate loops in an open habitat with some small scattered trees. Sites near Dixie Lake receive plenty of afternoon shade from tall cypress and pines on the lake margin. There is a mixture of spacious back-ins and pull-through sites with a solid crush limestone gravel base. The access roads are wide and paved. We had no problem getting satellite TV and Verizon 4G was zooming here. There are miles of hiking trails here and biking was a pleasure on the low traffic park roads. The only reason we are not extending a perfect score of ten is because there appears to be some leveling issues at selected sites, no swimming and only a few sites have sewer. We would like to return to this campground.

This place really is a "Top Rated" RV park, and it is well designed in a natural setting. Every single spacious site has an assortment of palms, shrubs, and trees. There is plenty of privacy, and the sites are spread-out across 80 lush vegetative acres. It is the first RV park in Florida we have been to with a hill. There is a magnificent large size pool, heated, for lap swimming. The Wi-fi here is the best we have encountered. There is an established network for Wi-fi in the park for each site. The provided cable TV is excellent with 98 channels. Most sites are solid grass and are back-ins. We had one of the pull-throughs and a secluded site. Had the site pads been paved we would have rated the place a ten. We used the place as our base camp for exploring Crystal River. We will not hesitate to return to this beautiful RV park at the Passport America rate.

This is a campground within a county park, and we used it as a base camp for four days. We arrived when the narrow entrance road was being repaved. Extreme care had to be used in order to negotiate a motorhome around construction equipment. Once we took a look at the place we would have turned around and left had it not been for the repaving project. We were trapped, so we decided to stay. The majority of the loose, sandy, grassy sites are very tight. They are tight because of a back-in and pull-in arrangement with a side by side utility pedestal. We think the place would feel very crowded if just half full. The unmaintained very narrow access roads are packed sand and are dusty when dry. The sites are beneath the canopy of tall trees with a few openings. So there is plenty of shade. We had a site allowing us to get satellite TV, and Verizon 3G reception was very good. Otter Springs is a short walk away, and we found it not to be good for swimming. There is a large screened heated pool within the campground. It is an excellent facility for swimming. The recreation building is run down and non-functional for any practical purpose. We will not stay here again.

Despite a few flaws, we enjoyed our stay here on the island setting RV Resort. The best I could detect and after talking to the owner, this seems to be a temporary RV Park. The sites are actually lots, for sale or sold, and currently existing as RV sites to support an economic operation. There is one Park Model in place. The access roads are high cost cobblestone pavement. Unfortunately, the sites are not like the access roads. They consist of crushed packed limestone and not so level. A big rig may sink through the pad surface. There is just grass and soft sand between the sites. Some sites are spacious and some are not so spacious. Some sites have a table and some sites do not. My laptop revealed there is no Wi-Fi here or anywhere nearby. Verizon 3G worked just fine. There is a terrific view of the bay and of the river. There is no access to the bay unless one ventures into the surrounding reeds. Like wise for the river unless the dock is used. There is a giant under heated pool and a spa that was not operational. There is not much here to support a daily price tag of 48.00. We got the Passport America rate, now good seven days a week, and there is an extra charge for electric use. For a better price there is a much better RV Resort three miles west of Carrabelle. So long as the daily price remains high we will not return.

A prime location for this RV Resort a few miles west of Carrabelle. I'm favoring a ten over a nine because a white sandy excellent beach is directly across the highway. There is a short access trail to the scenic shoreline. Well, maybe, the place is closer to an eight. Because there are a number of concrete pad sites, which are sloped, and the the access lanes have tight turns. Otherwise the place is well designed, well maintained, highly appealing, and very good views of the coast. We selected a site that was level. There is one site with an oak tree to qualify as a shade tree. The rest of the sites have good size palm trees. There is a sparkling clean, moderate size, pool. The Wi-Fi is steady and fast. There is a real functional weight machine in the small clubhouse. The big draw here is the beach and the quiet atmosphere. We took advantage of the stay 2 nights and get the third for free. We would of stayed longer had the staff been flexible with the weekly rate. We will return here again.

This an excellent well maintained RV Resort and one deserving the use of the word "Resort". It is located on a private lake in the forested high lands of the panhandle. Well it seems like we were up in the mountains. The lake level was low so there were many tree stumps visible. Otherwise, a scenic setting and very quiet. Due to the number of sites and narrow access lanes the place can have a feeling of being crowded. If I forget about the exercise room the facilities here are excellent. We extended our stay and they offer an unlimited stay for Passport America membership. Not many quality RV Parks offer an unlimited stay, but this one does. We would like to return.

This is a well shaded campground within walking distance by way of several trails to the Brazos River. We arrived here just after several hours of moderate to heavy rain from thunderstorms. The paved looped roads and paved pull-through sites were a major benefit following the rain. Sewer hook-ups are included at the extreme spacious sites and there is only 30 Amp service. Big rigs will need to use caution on the roads to avoid low hanging tree limbs. Friendly and informative staff advised us the sites near number 19 were good for satellite TV and Verizon 3G. The information proved to be correct and both operated without problems. This was an overnight stop for us. We will likely return to this campground.

This is an excellent and quiet RV Park for visiting the Pensacola area. There are some prime appealing sites here and there are some average pull through sites. The level site pads are long with course gravel. The wide enough access roads are composed of rough weathered pavement. The, almost spacious, pull-through sites have a table, hook-ups and grass between the sites. There is an adjacent small lake and plenty of property to walk or go birding. Otherwise there is not much recreational activity here and the unorganized unkept appearing clubhouse is small. The restrooms are located within the clubhouse and are insufficient for the RV Park when nearly full. The Wi-Fi here is top notch. We would return to this RV Park.

We found this reasonable price State Park campground to be a great place for visiting the Mississippi coast. It is difficult to reach when following the State Park signs from Waveland. There are some very narrow roads and narrow turns for big rigs. Instead, I recommend following the signs to the Silver Slipper Casino and then go east on the coast road. This State Park was destroyed by Katrina. Rebuilding of the campground appears to been completed. The woodland areas and campground trees are recovering. There is an assortment of attractive new sites and it appeared all had full hook-ups. The first three loops have a few level paved sites for big rigs. There is another loop with considerable shade and concrete pads, which are more suitable for big rigs. That loop is closer to the rail line, which does have an occasional passing train. There is an ocean view area with full hook-ups adjacent to the coast road. They are grass sites with no shade and cost eleven dollars more per night. There are plenty of brand new incredible bath houses. Verizon works great here and there are no problems for obtaining satellite TV from the first three loops. We would return for another stay.

Fontainebleau SP is scared of something or perhaps there is a potential crime problem? This was my first encountered with city like street lights blazing away in an RV campground of a State Park. They sure did take away the night time appeal for this campground. More important, warning, a big rig will not do well here. I barely got ours into the designated site. I had to pull around two times and then still had to disconnect to get properly situated on the narrow pull-through paved pad. The paved access lanes are narrow and there are some low hanging limbs. The ground was dry for us. A big rig may sink on a wet day getting into a site. Also, be warn the Park Staff will add-on extra charges for a pull-through and if you are out of state. Go for a back-in. They are wider and you may need to disconnect anyway. Restroom here are top notch and its a pleasant walk to the lake. We stayed here for one night. We will not be back to any Louisiana State Park.

This is an RV Park a short distance from I-10 in an Industrial Zone with an abundance of bright lights. I expected so much more based on previous reviews and the excellent score provided by Good Sam. The majority of back in sites, which are spacious, are occupied by residents working in the area. There are some pull throughs available for RV travelers. The pull throughs are not spacious and some are rather narrow. They are paved and level. Beyond the lake, there is no recreational activity here. There is no clubhouse and there are no restrooms except for two small ones in the office building. The library is a shelf with a few aged books. The RV Park is illuminated by the bright spot lights of adjacent businesses and the park has many bright ones, as well. The work crowd residents here come and go through-out the night. It seems they just never got settled in for night. The sound of I-10 traffic carried well into the RV Park during our overnight visit. The place looks neat and clean. It is good for an overnight stop. I don't light bright lights at night and I don't like RV Parks with people who stay-up all night so I will not be back. I cannot imagine why anyone would pay the full rate here. We paid the Passport America rate.

This is an excellent RV Park, for a short stay, on Highway 173 about half-way between Kerrville and Bandera. There is some road noise at times. Otherwise a quiet area in an oak tree wooded setting. The majority of the sites are pull throughs. The sites located to the immediate right of the entrance gate are the widest and some have large oak trees for partial shade. Sites to the left are narrow and some are sloped. The access roads and sites are hard packed attractive gravel. Dish Network is provided on a cable outlet and the Wi-Fi here is excellent. There is a magnificent lodge serving as a clubhouse and there is an excellent swimming pool. The only downside here are two bright security lights casting a bright glow on most sites and a few sewer connections are not placed well. At the Passport America rate its a good value. We may return.

Our second time here and once again we enjoyed our visit. The tremendous attraction here is the spring fed pool, enormous in size and warm for swimming. The paved pull through sites are level and most come with a ramada and table. The 50 Amp sites have cable and they are an extra three dollars per night. Its nice and quiet and dark at night here. We will return.

An interesting rustic aged looking RV Park and good for a stay despite it's short comings. We prefer this RV Park during the off season when its not crowded. The sites are far too tight for our liking unless the adjacent sites are not occupied, which is certain the month of September and October. A number of improvements have been accomplished and in our opinion more are required. A power surge protector is a must to protect appliances of an RV. There is no circuit breaker on the utility box, which are small, rusted and appear to be left over from the water park days. The big plus here is the adjacent open Saguaro desert with miles of trails, the view and the terrific quantity of books in the library. We are not sure if we will come back to this RV Park.

We found this to be an excellent RV Park for an overnight stay. It is a typical Escapee Co-Op Park for members only and a few sites with full hook-ups become available at times for traveling members. I recommend Escapee members check-in here first before taking a chance with one of the other Benson RV Parks, which are plagued by train noise. Our back-in site, 50 Amp, was extremely spacious and long enough for us to park the tow behind the Motorhome. We asked for a site with a view and we got one. The clubhouse is a state of the art community center, magnificent, and very large. The only thing missing here is a pool. The paved access roads are wide like a city street and the sites are well covered with ideal gravel. There are no bothersome street lights here so it appears to be an excellent place for star gazing. The place is far enough away from I-10 so traffic noise is non-existing. The passing trains can be heard. We stayed here for one night and look forward to a future stay for a longer period of time.

This review is for the South Monticello campground (50 sites) of Elephant Butte Lake SP, which is several miles north of the campgrounds by the main entrance. We first searched for a site at Quail Run, Desert Cove and Lyons Beach campgrounds. We found those campgrounds unacceptable due to unleveled pull-through sites, the potential for rude campers, loud noise, and boating groups. By making a wrong turn we ended up at South Monticello and for us it is a gem of a campground. It is a stark contrast to the other campgrounds of the State Park. The campground has a huge wide paved loop access road, wonderful layout, with spacious gravel padded sites. There are about ten pull throughs and they have the 50 amp power. Each site has a ramada with a large table. There are no shade trees and the primary vegetation of the campground is Creosote Brush. The scenic views from the sites are terrific and it's a quiet place. The lake level at the time of our visit was so low there was no lake. The boat ramp was high and dry. This made for a near empty campground and the boating crowd was nowhere to be seen, which contributed to the natural quiet sounds. Verizon service here including 3G was great and fast. We extended out stay and will likely return.

The I-40 traffic noise at this RV Park is far less than the RV Park across the Interstate and its nearly twenty dollars less than the RV Park next door. Overall, this a very good and safe RV Park for an overnight stay. Easy to reach off I-40, quick check-in, wide access roads and pull through spaces. The sites are wide enough, plain and simple, gravel based and angled towards the northeast. The back in sites surround the pull-through sites and they eliminate any potential view. The back-ins are nearly all occupied by extended long term guest. There are about 35 pull throughs available for overnight guest or those doing less than a month. We had an end site and they look the best. If you like having some shrubs or a tree adjacent to your site, select an end site. The other sites are not so appealing. Sites have a table that appears to have been weathered by a thousand thunderstorms. The Wi-Fi is by Tengo, which really doesn't count as Wi-Fi and one must pay for it. The facilities here are top notch, the restrooms are large, modern and sparkling clean. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount on 30 Amp. We will stay here again and only on an end sites.

The Buffalo Grove Campground of Cochiti Lake COE is designed for RV camping. It is above the west side of the lake, on a slope, in a Juniper Tree habitat. There is 50 amp electric and water at each site. The loop access roads are paved and each site is paved. There are a few pull throughs and the back-ins are angled to permit easy backing. Leveling a rig here is a challenge. Some sites are long enough for big rigs, but they may not permit proper leveling. The un-leveled sites is the reason for not providing the campground with a ten. Sites come with a ramada, a table and fantastic views. Each site is spacious with plenty of additional open space between sites. We like open space, spacious sites, endless views, isolated campgrounds and quiet. So this place was ideal for us. The only downside was the lake being closed for recreational use due to hundreds of floating logs. We stayed here for two nights and will return.

After checking previous reviews of RV Parks in the Taos area we selected this one. We were not disappointed and we enjoyed our week stay. The place was what we expected and it served as a good quiet base camp for exploring the area. The almost level sites are spacious and ours was over 40-feet wide with plenty of room for the tow. The big plus here is the fabulous uninterrupted panoramic views. A highlight for us was viewing the endless siege of thunderstorms. There is a one mile plus trail available for walking or exercising pets. Otherwise there are no other recreational amenities. There is star gazing because the RV Park is lights out after sunset. There are no interfering foolish bright security lights here. The owners are making improvements. Hopefully, in the near future, they will pave the entrance, establish a real library, and construct a separate restroom for guest. Our rate reflects the weekly rate including tax for a site without sewer. If we return to the Taos area we will stay at this RV Park.

This is an attractive RV park outside the city limits of Santa Fe, in an open space zone, and a sufficient distance from Interstate 25. The RV park is located in a rural area of homes and has impressive unhindered views of the Santa Fe Mountains and Jemez Mountains. There is a pull-through area that can handle the largest big rigs, and back-ins that seem to be liked by those who stay longer. The back-ins are clearly more spacious and some are extremely wide. The natural landscape of junipers and grasses is intermixed with the sites and during our stay there was a colorful display of wildflowers. An impressive amenity is the extensive oversized immaculate restrooms. They are perhaps the best I have seen at an RV park. So good I used them instead of the one in the motorhome. I was puzzled by the slow Wi-Fi since hot spots are located though-out the RV Park. Many of the back-in sites and some pull-throughs have a patio. It is not just a slab or the typical square pad with the corners cracked-off. The patios are full length, solid, wide, level,and enhance the site. A few sites appear to have patios with keystone blocks and pavers. There is an extra charge for these sites. The clubhouse, which is closed in the evening is a disappointment. Other downsides are the rate and the main entrance road. The rate is high for a lack of recreational amenities and yet it is lower than the sub-par RV parks of Santa Fe. The entrance road is a common easement for residents who live on the east side of the RV Park. So their traffic enters and exits the RV P\park. Our rate reflects the weekly rate and we will return when visiting Santa Fe again. We stayed here in a motorhome.

This is a small and isolated RV Park adjacent to Interstate 25. Resources for supplies are a long ways off. The motto here is "do as I say not as I do". For certain, the owners and their campground host do not do themselves any favors by allowing their dogs to freely roam about. The majority of the sites sit empty and during our week stay there was only two over nighter who stopped. A few sites are occupied by highway construction workers who are very quiet and there are sites occupied by camp workers. After one night we changed sites to get away from a rude campground host who enjoyed playing the TV volume loud. I would of provided the place with a better rating if not for the dogs. There are at least eight dogs off leash at all hours. The gravel base level sites are excellent and spacious. The wide access roads are gravel. Various trees and shrubs are between the sites. Just avoid the first row due to clubhouse dogs and bright lights of the clubhouse. The grounds are well landscaped with gardens and fountain. The surrounding area is barren with a few rain thirsty shrubs. I-25 is directly adjacent to the east and the noise does penetrate into the RV Park. On the other side of the Interstate there is an active rail line. Our rate reflects the Passport America rate and we stayed here a week. We may stay here again, but not for a week.

This is a riparian zone campground near the Rio Grande with spacious shaded pull-through sites for an RV. Access roads are gravel based and the level sites are gravel. Each site has a ramada and table. At the entrance to the park there is a bridge with a 15 ton limit. The sites on the right are reservable and the sites to the left are first come first serve sites. Sites one through six have 50 Amp and rest are 30 Amp. There is no sewage connection and there is no dump station located at the campground. Trees are present and at some sites satellite TV could be blocked by the trees. We had no problems with getting Direct TV at our site. All of the electric sites are away from the river. During our stay we could hear the river going over the dam. Some of the non-electric sites are near or adjacent to the river. I would not recommend placing a big rig at those sites. The one opened restroom is shared by all. It was clean for us on a weekday. The park seems to be neglected by the staff and they are often not present. The big plus here are the birds. This is a prime New Mexico birding site and we were not disappointed. There is a wide variety and they are plentiful. We stayed here for two nights and will return.

We found this Escapee RV Park excellent for an safe overnight stay. The sites are primarily just gravel and the access roads are gravel. The first two rows, pull-through sites and near the clubhouse, have shade trees. Our site, almost level, had a couple of trees, which was a good thing on a hot day. The backside of the RV Park is surrounded by open land and offers a good view of the Florida Mountains. The clubhouse has a good size library. The staff provides great service as expected for an Escapee park. The traffic noise from I-10 can be heard and it did not bother us. Passing trains do not have any nearby crossings so they did not bother us. The only negative is the outside music being played by the Holiday Inn, which is adjacent to the RV Park. I suppose it's played to keep unwanted roamers away and it can be heard at times in the RV Park. We will stay again when needing a place in the Deming area for one night.

This is a no frills RV Park, five miles south of Congress, with limited amenities and 50 Amp hookups are lacking. The RV Park is part of an Escapee Rainbow community and is well maintained. The RV Park is separated from the deeded community lots. Sites and access roads are gravel with little or no partitions between sites. The west row has established shade trees and all others are at the mercy of the elements. The back-in sites are about 30 feet wide. There is an excellent cactus garden adjacent to the RV area and there is a back gate providing access to miles of BLM trails. The off season clubhouse is large with an enormous library. The larger and newer activity center clubhouse was closed during our stay. Noise from the underused highway is minimal during the day. West of the highway there is a rail line. There was about three to five trains passing by each day. There is no train horn blasting since the nearest crossing is five miles away. The nights were extremely quiet and dark. There are no hindering security lights here to interfere with star gazing. Verizon has a strong signal here for accessing the internet. We liked the place well enough to become Escapee members. We expect to return many times in the future.

This is an appealing, quiet and comfortable RV Park for the Quartzsite area. It a couple miles north of I-10 and away from the activity areas of the town. During June, as expected, the RV Park was empty. So we had our choice of sites. The majority of the sites appear to be pull-through sites with paved access roads. The level sites are well covered with quality gravel. Quality full hook-ups are provided at each site. A few sites have shade provided by full grown Palo Verde trees. There are a few Saguaros growing on the grounds. There is a weak Wi-Fi signal here. I ended using Verizon PDA instead of the local Wi-Fi connection. The office is functional with no information and the moderate size clubhouse has a pool table. There is a library, but we carry more books in our Motorhome then what we found in the clubhouse library. This is another RV Park awash with night time glaring security lights. Perhaps there is a crime problem here. The two adjacent tight space RV Parks appear to be a dumping ground for run down trailers and broken 5th Wheelers. There are no pet areas and few recreational opportunities here. There is a back gate providing access to a desert wash. We stopped here for an overnight to avoid the wind and heat of afternoon driving. It is the best Quartzsite has to offer. We will stay here again.

This RV Park is misrepresenting itself as a “Resort.” The amenities and facilities do not justify the resort title. Just about each aspect of the RV Park is a short coming and is provided without consideration of quality. The exception is the view, which is outstanding for some sites. There are three type of sites offered. There are those for the permanent appearing degraded trailer community, the regular sites and the premium sites. The only difference between the regular and premium sites is the view. For a higher price, the premium sites have an uninterrupted view of the Colorado River, Laughlin Casinos and the distant mountains. Both the regular and premium sites are mixed in with sites privately owned. The wide access roads are paved and have some irritating speed bumps that are not well marked. The sites are composed of sandy grit and hard packed dirt. There is little or no vegetation at the sites. A few sites have some small trees attempting to thrive in a hot environment. Shade is something to dream about on a hot day. A few of the sites are level and most are bumpy from previous leveling challenge accomplishments. The utilities work without flaw and they could use some maintenance for improving the appearance at the site. The WiFi here is terrible. We were within 50 feet of the hot spot and we had an extremely weak signal. It disconnected often. Even in the clubhouse itself, the WiFi was slow. Yes: they have a pool and only one pool. It is rather small for such a large complex and it is located at the entrance with no parking. A guest will need to use the pool before late afternoon. At which time the long term residence people will begin hogging the pool. The fitness room is composed of a couple good tread mills. The rest of the equipment should have been placed in a dumpster years ago. The clubhouse is very small for such a large place. The common theme here for each amenity is under size and low quality. When it came to donuts day: there were no donuts and no coordination. Rules, not sure if they exist here, are not observed or expected. We stayed here at half price with the Camp Club discount. Local taxes are absurd and I can not fathom how an RVer would be willing to pay the full price. We will not stay here again.

We had high expectations for this RV Park before our arrival. Based on the previous reviews, Good Sam report, and after contacting the park by phone, this seem like a can't miss gem of an RV Park. We were prepared to spend a week here. So glad we did not make reservations. This is not a gem of an RV Park and it is not a sufficient distance from the large major fueling stop for trucks. I-40 and the truck stop produced noise that projected into the RV Park. The sites and access roads are all gravel. There are a few shade trees, otherwise the place is just a terraced gravel lot. The small narrow clubhouse appeared to be rundown and the library was composed of old romance paperbacks. The worst aspect of the place was the bright stadium lights on top of 50 foot poles. Combined those with the truck stop lights and there is 24-hours of daylight. The staff sure had a different attitude once we arrived as compared to on the telephone. They seem to us to be unfriendly and not in anyway accommodating to a guest. The staff actually scared us and made us feel unsafe. Between the potential for unwanted guest from the truck stop and the RV Park staff this was not a safe and secured RV Park for us. Instead of a week we stayed one night. We will not even consider staying here again even if it was free.

We found this isolated RV Park relaxing, appealing, and presenting to us one of the best panoramic views. It is an oasis surrounded by miles of short shrubs, dry grasses, colorful Navajo sandstone and the crater rim is visible from the RV Park. During our stay, many migrating birds were using the location as a stop-over. The RV Park is gated and there is a private security patrol. Sites are spacious with a natural vegetative appeal. The lay-out for the sites is well designed. One of the rules here is no exterior RV lights on during the night. A rule we really like so we can enjoy the night sky on moonless nights. The WiFi here was easy to dial-in and the speed was relatively fast. We have been here before and wished we had spend at least another night. We will stay here again.

This is an RV Resort primarily composed of Park Models. There appears to be 96 featureless poorly designed RV Sites with full hook-ups. It appears many are not available to overnight, weekly, or monthly guest. It is my recommendation and warning, Big Rigs avoid this RV Resort. Unless you are able to obtain one of the few 45-foot length concrete RV pads in advance before arriving. The majority of the RV sites, all but eight, are composed of thick layers of course crushed reddish lava rocks. Beneath the lava gravel is soft damp soil. Motorhomes and perhaps 5th Wheelers are prone to getting stuck. Our escort backed us up and got us stuck in a site. The resort thought I would be a happy camper and remain for the week bogged down in the goo. I called Good Sam Emergency Road Service to get pulled out of the site. I was then offered one of the concrete pad sites. During our stay we saw other rigs get stuck, saw evidence of others getting stuck, and were told by long term stayers that watching Big Rigs get stuck is not an uncommon sight. Backing up into most of the sites is hampered by the ill placement of a tree. The staff here was not doing a good job of leveling the sites during our stay. I saw many Motorhomes tilting due to one or more jacks sinking into the lava gravel. Sink holes and deep tire furrows are left unattended. The facilities here are outstanding. There is a well equipped gym, which includes a universal weight lifting machine. Guest are able to use the Show Low Aquatic Center, at no cost, for swimming. The place is well lit-up at night. There are far too many bright street lights and security lights. Even on a moonless night we were not able to see the stars because of the lights. Great facilities, but I find this RV Resort to be well over rated. We stayed here for a week at a special weekly rate for the month of May. I do not like getting stuck, so we will not return.

This is an excellent RV Park along a riparian zone and beneath the canopy of Cottonwood Trees. It is the trees providing the prime outstanding character and appearance for this RV Park. West Clear Creek is a short walk from the sites and it was flowing well during our stay. There are catch-able size trout in the creek. Finding the Common Black Hawk here is a can't miss experience. Access roads and the level sites are composed of fine brownish red gravel. Most sites are about 30 feet wide or more. The utilities here are top-notch and problem free. The Wi-Fi is excellent with better than average speed. There are no amenities to justify an excessive daily rate. Like ourselves, many who come here stay for a week or more. The monthly rate is a bargain and our price reflects the monthly rate. The shade from the trees is pleasant on the hot days. They do drop volumes of cotton and leaves. They do block the satellite TV reception at some sites. The owner is somewhat obsessive with keeping the place clean. The restrooms are charming and spotless. The RV Park is only as good as the neighbors. Across the street and to the immediate east there are residential areas. Typical sounds of barking dogs, loud music and parties project frequently into the RV Park. During commute time and on weekends, adjacent Highway 260 presents considerable traffic noise. The RV Park, unfortunately, has a buddy site, which presented some problems with excessive loud and rude party RV people. A big plus for this place is the outstanding friendly dedicated work camper staff. We will likely return when in the area again.

This is our 3rd winter visit to this excellent RV Park bordering public lands and Tucson Mountain Park. As with our previous stays here, we are extremely satisfied and find this a great place to stay during the annual Gem and Mineral Show. I have found the owners to be outstanding for their attempt to accommodate guests with the best possible site options. Not an easy task to accomplish when the place is full each night. We got lucky and were assigned to a premium site. The hook-ups are flawless, which was a good thing when the overnight temperature fell below twenty. Our site was wide and level. The terrific amenity here is the adjacent desert of Saguaro cactus. There are miles of hiking and mountain biking trails to enjoy. The website for this RV Park is outdated because the price has gone-up. Yet it is still a bargain in comparison to the places in the city of Tucson. We were able to use two Passport America nights and extended our stay by 10-days. The price reflects the weekly rate. We will return again.

This was our 4th time back to this RV Park. It is excellent for an overnight stop. The pull-through sites along the south side are saved for overnight guests. They are level, spacious in width, and long in length. The hookups are well maintained and operate free of problems. As with each prior visit, the staff is friendly and they provided us with excellent service. This time of year the large clubhouse is open. They have a rather large library with hardback and paperback books. The restrooms are large and spotless. We were able to hear a train in far distance and there was little or no traffic noise from I-8. We stayed here for one night. We will stay here again when we pass by.

Once again we enjoyed our overnight stay at this RV Park. It continues to be well maintained, neat, and a clean RV Park. The only thing missing is a golf course and yet it refers itself as a "Park" as opposed to a "Resort." Overnighters may want to use caution when plugging-in. We had an issue with the electrical hook-up. Our surge protector kept tripping resulting in numerous power outages in a short period. Checking adjacent sites I found outlets with no power and damaged connections. The staff allowed us to switch to another site in a row where the electrical power was not an issue. While the staff did not express any concern for us, they did indicate getting the problem fixed. We stayed here for one night at the Passport America rate. We will likely return because the place has been quiet and relaxing on each visit.

This place is no longer an RV Resort. It is an exceptional, well maintained and appealing, Park Model Resort. Sites available to overnighters or those seeking a week stay have become fewer in number. We were originally placed in a site without power and had to relocate. Not an easy task to accomplish with a Motorhome and a tow. We ended up with a partial shaded, spacious back-in site. The site though was not level and this caused some leveling problems and holding tank dumping problems. We were staying in a residential area and it would be difficult to do otherwise here. Felt has if we were intruding and as strangers each day. The surrounding residents kept a close eye on us. The Park Model folks have little or nothing in common with RVers. The resort has raised the overnight fee and dropped the cable TV access for RVers. For the Passport America discount they now charge an extra $3.00 per day. There was just one pull-through site available. The others are clearly taken up by long term residents. Still we like the place and the local area. They have one of the best clubhouses and libraries we have seen. The outdoor pool and hot spas are open during the winter and well maintained. The bottom line is that we will likely not be returning because of the increase in the overnight rate and the manner of charging us extra for electric.

Our stay here was a return visit. We gave this RV park a perfect score before and nothing has changed to merit otherwise. When we pulled into the entrance we felt as if we were arriving back home. Nothing but smiles for us here. We really like the fact that they charge for electricity used on the 50% discount memberships as opposed to adding on a three or five dollar extra charge like some places. We like to conserve so it was only an extra dollar a day for us. At the current time the RV park was at 40 percent capacity. We know that will change in the coming weeks. We will likely return in January if there is a spot open for us.

This is a quiet and wonderful isolated campground that served as an excellent base camp for us. The terrace level campground has commanding views of the Florida Mountains, Deming, and distant ranges and peaks. The campground is on a southwest slope below a volcanic ridge. This past week when Deming had low temperatures in the teens it was 5 to 10 degrees warmer in the morning at the campground. The access roads are wide and there is a moderate incline to the upper sites. Our back-in site had a very level gravel pad. There are a few pull-throughs. There are 24 spacious sites with 30 amp electric and all but one could accommodate big rigs. During our stay there were three to five sites still available in the evening. The campground is below several cell phone towers and satellite TV is picked up without problems. The entrance road to the state park is paved. For some reason the access road of the campground loops were left unpaved. The one and only restroom is very small. We stayed here for six nights.

Strong winds on I-10 force us to find an RV spot in Las Cruces. Following signs from the interstate we ended up at this "Resort." There is a very large and very hot spa with powerful jets. Other then the spa I was unable to locate another amenity to justify the "Resort" label. This RV Park has a top rated appearance with wide paved access roads and an attractive landscape. It appears the pull-throughs are long enough to accommodate big rigs and there are some extra long sites. The fine gravel sites are level. I did not need to extend the leveling jacks since our site was so level. There is twin parking on a site with side by side utilities. The sites are spacious unless another RV parks opposite and adjacent on the same site. The cable TV and WiFi worked exceptional well. There is not much to do here except take a dip in a spa. The exercise room has a few lightweight dumb bells. The book exchange is low on books. It would have been nice to do laundry. Except the place is in the process of replacing the washers and dryers. It would seem to be a one-day job and yet it looks like the appliances have been missing for awhile. We stayed here one night to be safe from the wind. The over priced rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We will not stay here again unless there is a decrease in overnight rates.

The following review is for the Quail Run and Desert Cove campground loops. Both have 50 Amp electric and water hook-ups. There are 47 sites in the campground. Ten of the sites are paved pull-throughs and there is one gravel/dirt pull through site. Nine of the ten paved pull-throughs are steeply unlevel. They present a real challenge to level any type of RV. The one and only level paved pull-through is occupied by a campground host. I wonder why New Mexico State Parks (NMSP) even bothered to construct the pull-throughs since they have extreme slope. I wonder why they allow the host to occupy the one and only level paved pull-through site. We had the spacious semi-private level gravel/dirt site. It is a somewhat dusty site when the wind was blowing. The electric and water are on the opposite and wrong side of the site. If NMSP could relocate the electric box, Site 18 would be a premium site. The back-in sites are paved and some are level. Sites are spacious, surrounded by native vegetation, and most have a view of the distant lake. The lake level, currently, appears to be 40-feet or more below the normal level. The campground host seem to have an unfriendly nature, projected loud TV sound into the campground and did little upkeep of the sites. The restrooms were in need of better cleaning. We found the same fecal material on the walls our entire stay. After ten days the dumpsters were overflowing with trash. Park roads and access roads are in great need of a repaving project. We will likely not return because the campground is neglected and we likely would not get a level pull-through.

When a place uses the word "Resort" I expect much more. Boot Hill is excellent for an overnight stay. The available amenities and the quality of the facilities does not rate this a resort. This is basically a well maintained and well designed gravel lot RV Park with outstanding hook-ups. Looks to be the best in the area. Access roads, the sites and open space areas are just gravel with just a few well spaced young pine trees. The on-site recreational opportunities begin with and end with a horse shoe pit. The book exchange was very disappointing since it consisted of just a few novels. The exercise room has a few pieces of equipment and little or nothing for weight lifting. I walked in to work-out and then turned right around and walked-out. It closes at 6:00 PM. The laundry is on the expensive side. It is $2.00 per wash and $2.00 per dry. There is highway noise, and a rail line is nearby. We stayed here at the Passport America rate. It is honored for only one night. There is nothing here to entice us to stay at this RV Park a second night at double the price.

We found the campground of this State Park excellent for an extended stay. The spacious paved 50 Amp pull-through sites are parallel to the loop access lane. Each appear to be level and there is a graveled utility island between the pad and access road. The Wi-Fi network can be acquired from the most western sites nearest to the lodge. It is weak and subject to frequent disconnects. There is a very good sewer dump within the campground along a loop. The big plus and main feature of this State Park is the 2-acre, 72 F to 76 F. spring fed pool. It is within easy walking distance from the campground. There is a small clean restroom in need of upkeep and upgrading. Day users will sneak over to use the campground's restroom. During our stay the campground was quiet each night with extremely dark sky nights. Over nighters arrive in the late afternoon and leave early the following morning. So we had the campground to our selfs each day. Some of the sites have an enlarged ramada. A few are home for a couple hundred bats, which fly-out at dusk. We stayed here 10-nights and will likely return here anytime we are traveling on I-10.

I am providing this campground with an overall rating of which I have only honored one other place. The Limestone Campground of this State Park is a well designed, spacious and attractive desert shrub campground. There are three pull-through sites available and we had one for our nine day stay. The pull-throughs, three sewer sites, and site 14 and 15 have 50 Amp electric. The campground is divided into two section, the reservation side and the first come first serve side. The reservation side has the better appearing, longer pad and more level sites. Only three or five were occupied each night. Our big rig fit just well into the pull-through, which had a terrific view of the lake and surrounding plains. The access road is paved, wide, and each camp site is paved. Each site has a covered patio and native plant landscaping. Most sites have shade provided by low growing trees. The trees are not big enough or tall enough to block satellite TV. Our PDA net worked great for the internet. If you have a WiFi dish the Carlsbad KOA WiFi can be acquired. Brantley Lake was a birding hot spot for us. There were ducks, geese, pelicans, cranes, loons, grebes, and more each day on the lake. The rate reflects the discount with the annual camp pass. We will be back.

Previous reviews warned me the RV Park was not a good one. Those reviews are correct and like the previous reviewer we got ripped-off. Either the staff is poor with math or they are devious to overcharge overnighters. So be prepared to pay for some unknown services. There is also, a 12% tax added on to the daily rate. Never the less, this was our base camp while visiting Carlsbad Caverns. The owners realize they have little or no competition and it reflects in the quality of the RV Park. The majority of the spaces are very tight with nothing more than a utility box in need of upgrading. We were assigned a so called premium space, which provided us with sufficient space. The dirt access lanes are narrow with some tight turns. Some sites have a tree and most are just fine dirt with no shade. The wind blew during our stay so the tow car and RV got covered in dust. There is no need for a flashlight here. They have an extraordinary number of bright street lights on the grounds along with a glaring neon sign. The highway noise did not bother us on a Friday night. On Saturday night the traffic noise was louder and could be heard through the night. A positive for the place is the pool. It is a good size indoor pool and refreshing. We stayed here for two nights and we will not return to this RV Park. I will alert Passport America and Good Sam or their devious over charging practices. We stayed here in a motorhome.

We were disappointed and not impressed by the campground of this New Mexico State Park. The entire park seems to be disorganized and bit mixed in with the private community of Sumner Lake. The main campground, which has the hook-ups, is poorly designed, mid-slope location between the lake and a mesa, and on the edge of not being acceptable for big rigs. Use caution when entering the RV site access road. There is no turn-around, the road is rough, dirt and with tight turns around obstacles. There are three sites appearing to be level and they were occupied. The others offer some challenges to get a big rig parked and level. The three pull throughs are actually not pull throughs, for we had to disconnect to maneuver our motorhome into a suitable position. It takes forever to reach the RV Sites. The park has a odd loop around road probably designed to burn-off your expensive diesel fuel. There is little or no view of the lake, which is not close to the campground. Some of the sites like ours had the electric and water on the wrong side. Some of the sites share the 30 Amp electrical box and the water. We were planning to stay here for week. Due to the reservation system of New Mexico, and the first come first served sites being of such poor value, we stayed only one night. We will not return to this NM State Park.

This review is for the Indian Grass Campground or Oasis State Park. It is the one with "developed electric" sites. There are essentially 13 attractive, spacious RV sites. Three (#11, 12, 13) can be reserved, and the rest are first come first served sites. There are four 50 Amp sites. Two of them #17 and #18 are full hook-up sites since they have sewer. The sites are well spaced apart with shade trees and native vegetation surrounding each site. Each site has a ramada above a concrete picnic table pad. Each site is a pull-through, and most look like they can work for a big rig. Getting Direct TV can be tricky due to the trees and PDA satellite WiFi is slow here. Nearly all sites are available even on the weekend this time of year. There are a few problems with the campground, and it is booms and flies. We did not detect any stinky smells. We did find an enormous house fly problem and they likely come from the cow farms. Cannon AFB has a bombing range several miles to the west. Well there are no trains and no truck sounds. So overall a very good place to stay for a few days. We extended our stay.

This a an excellent public campground adjacent to Lea Lake. We had one of the four pull-through sites, which provide a close-up view of the lake. It was just a short walk for us to enjoy swimming in the lake. When this campground was developed the utilities for the pull-through were placed on the wrong side, in my opinion. We parked the opposite way for the lake view and our electric line was plenty long enough to reach the 30 Amp box. There is a large tin ramada over the large concrete picnic table and associated concrete pad. Shade if any is provided by tall salt cedar shrubs. The majority of sites are level and composed of weak gravel. Access roads are plenty wide enough for big rigs. The downfall for this campground is its close proximity of the popular day use area. On the weekend a considerable volume of noise traveled across the lake. The raccoons have their way with the trash since there is no trash can covers. Mosquitoes and house flies were abundant and getting worse during our stay. The entrance gate, advertised to close at 9 PM, was open all night. Allowing noisy late arrivals to disturb the campground. We stayed here for four nights and will return.

This an excellent, attractive, bird friendly, small RV Park adjacent to Highway 70 and 14 miles east of Ruidoso Downs. The friendly owners live on site and do an commendable job of maintaining the RV Park. They greet the occupants each day and tend to the needs of the RV park. There are 15 sites and two are occupied by park models. The remaining pull through sites are level, spacious and long enough for most big rigs. Most sites have a growing shade tree and each has a picnic table. The wide access lanes are gravel based like the sites and there are no obstructions. The utilities are up to date, in the right location, and operate without problems. The Wi-Fi is fast and operates free of problems. A large open space expanse is available for use by the occupants and a creek borders the back of the property. We really liked this RV park. We extended our stay from two days to a full week. Our site served as an excellent base camp while exploring the area. The rate reflected is an off-season weekly rate. We will likely return.

This is a gem of an RV Park between Flagstaff and Winslow, and ought to be used as a template by other RV Park operators. Our stay was a terrific overnight stop and we really enjoyed our time here. The well designed attractive sites are all pull-throughs and spacious. They are gravel based like the extra wide access lanes. There is an ample bounty of shrubs and trees to provide a green appearing landscape in an arid area. The restroom facility was climate control, sparkle clean, and was composed of individual private rooms with showers. The WiFi network worked without problem and we had fast speed at our site. This is a gated RV Park and a security patrol is provided for the RV Park. Sunsets, sunrises and star gazing is a premium feature here. Meteor Crater no longer provides 50% discount for Passport America. They do offer a 25% discount for Passport America, which is still a good deal and a good value. We look forward to staying here We camped in a motor home.

This RV Park can be best described as an expanded gravel parking lot with shade trees. There is nothing really enchanting about the place except for a few antique autos. Many of the sites are occupied by long term guest who's RV appears to have been stationary for an extended period of time. The long term guest and seasonal guest were of an unfriendly nature. Not a single one spoke to me or even would reply back with a simple hello. The clubhouse and laundry facility was locked-down at an early hour in the evening. The big drawback for us was the traffic noise of I-40. The traffic is non-stop, day and night, and a major trucking route. It was difficult to sleep during our first night. On the plus side, it is ten miles west of Albuquerque and Passport America is accepted. Even though we got charged extra for 50 Amp it was still twenty dollars less than across the Interstate. Traffic noise or not we would stay here again.

This RV Park is really nothing more than a gravel parking area with, great hook-ups, and a terrific scenic view. The pull-through sites are undefined and off to the side on gravel. Some are directly beneath electrical power lines. The back-in sites appeared rather tight and most are of short length. There is not much value provided for the price. Except for the value of the long distant views of both New Mexico and Colorado. The owners or operators of this RV Park have a number of dogs. They have a tendency, especially the small one, to run loose and bother the dogs of guest. This caused a considerable amount of barking during the afternoon hours. Do as I say not as I do would be a good motto for the RV Park. We made this place an overnight stop and will likely avoid doing so in the future. It is over rated.

This is an exceptional RV Park striving to provide excellent service. We stayed in one of their spacious unique terrace sites, which appear to be new or have been recently improved. Access lanes are solid gravel and so are the sites. There is an assortment of trees and some sites are shaded. The WiFi worked without any problems. There is a scenic mountain trail offering great views of the valley. Deer came by our site each evening and it was very quiet. We would of liked to stay longer and will likely return.

We used this RV Park as a base camp while exploring Rocky Mountain NP. We really enjoyed our stay here and found this to be an excellent full service RV Park. We avoided the river front sites and ended up with prime back-in site, which we were able to use as a pull-through. A 30 amp site was sufficient for us because we were beneath large cottonwood trees. The trees did block Direct TV for us, but the RV park's cable channels worked out well. The Wi-Fi was excellent and performed without problems. The sound of Big Thompson River is a pleasure and though this is a large RV park it was very quiet. Access roads are dusty and there are many long term seasonal residents here. There was many open sites on the weekdays and were told the place is full each weekend. Our rate reflects the Passport America price, Sunday through Thursday, and we extended our stay by night.

We enjoyed our stay and found this to be a small disorganized RV Park a mile north of Hot Springs within the Black Hills. There are a few pull-through sites and perhaps just one site with 50 Amp. Some sites have sewer and others do not. Some have only 20 Amp and others are 30 Amp. The utilities are on the opposite side, but it appears the owner does not care which way one parks on the site. Access lanes and sites are gravel base. There is plenty of lush green grass mixed with short pines trees and other shrubs between the spacious sites. This place operates other business on the property with the RV Park. Vehicles must pass through the RV Park to reach a storage building and tool rental business. Those drivers seem to race through and raise lots of dust. Showers and bath are aged, not so clean and sure could use a make-over. The highlight here is the rural setting, it's quiet, and there is an open scenic view of Black Hill ranges. We stayed here for two nights and will likely return. The rate shown is an average between the first night and second at the Passport America rate.

Try not to be mislead by previous reviews or the RV Park's website. This is not a gem and it is not a very good RV Park for Montana. At best this is an average Interstate RV Park. Good for an overnight stay and nothing more. Yes, there are extremely long somewhat level pull-through sites. They are very narrow and ours was 20-foot wide. There are many discrepancies involving the sites and the facilities. There are 24 sites and most are occupied by seasonal long term guest. Water, electric and sewer are shared with a neighbor. Each utility is immediately adjacent to cause some potential electrical hazards and sanitary problems. Your neighbor here could easily cut-off your 30 Amp power. Water pressure is very low. There must be some sort of safety problems here at night. Because there are at least two extremely bright stadium style lights here. They really light up the entire place at night. The light is strong enough to shine through double layer curtains. The Wi-Fi is terrible. I resorted to using PDA.net. There are other problems to encounter and to many to list. I'd recommend trying another RV Park or continue onward to another town. We stayed here one night. We will not stay here again.

First, I have corrected the web address for this RV Park to reflect the new updated address. This is a rather unique RV Park in a quiet country setting just north on I-94 and near Highway 16. There are somewhat spacious backin sites and tight pull-throughs. We had one of the water and 30 Amp pull-throughs beneath towering Cottonwood Trees. The wide access lanes are gravel/dirt and so are the level sites. Use caution when plugging-in. It appears most of the sites have no circuit breakers. Since it was cool we elected not to run the AC. I sure wish my mail order surge protector had arrived. The charm of this place is the rural country farm setting. There is a small size pond, supposedly with trout, corn fields, a number of running streams from springs, pastures and large grass areas for pets. The RV Park and local area has an abundance of birds and deer. There are two rail lines between Highway 16 and the RV Park. Neither of the two appear to be used with any frequencies. Traffic noise from I-94 is slight and usually not noticeable. Yes, there is a moderate hill to reach the park entrance. My big rig with a tow was able to handle it without any problem. This may not be the greatest place, but the value provided for the price is unbeatable. We extended our stay by a night and would stay here again.

We came across this campground, by accident, while looking for an RV Park in Dickinson. This is a public campground operated by Dickinson Park Department for the Department of Interior. It is within a park on Patterson Lake and to our dislike along a major rail line. The electric and water sites are parallel and 100 feet from the rail line. The train traffic was frequent during the night. The entrance to park is next to the RV campground so with each passing train there is an abundance of trains sounding their horn. We had a 50 amp site, which was not level. The site pads are just dirt with a weedy ground cover and shrubs between sites. There are some unkempt seasonal trailers occupying a few sites. The restrooms were horrible and we elected not to use them to protect our health. We will avoid staying here in the future.

A very good roadside RV Park, adjacent to open prairie, on the western edge of Williston. In comparison to other RV Parks within 50 miles this was the best for us. It is well maintained, neat and clean. It offers safety and security along with spacious full hook-up sites. The grassy sites are long enough for any size rig and at least 40-foot wide. There are good panoramic views of the area including the Missouri River Valley. The Wi-Fi worked fast and without problems. Many of the sites are occupied by people working in the area. They are friendly, neat, and quiet. We extended our stay to 3-nights in order to visit nearby sites and would stay here again.

We arrived at this campground on a Sunday as the weekend boating campers were departing. We had our choice of sites and there were fewer than five other campers during our stay. This is a public campground operated by the city of Hazen and by far the best place for an RV on the south side of Lake Sakakawea. It is about 14 miles north of Hazen and is situated in a scenic location above an inlet of Lake Sakakawea. The Campground Host told us the campground is full each weekend during the summer months. The spacious sites have mowed grass. A few can accommodate big rigs and most sites are not level. The site pad is composed of crushed asphalt and so are the access lanes. There is an attractive lay-out for the loops and a few sites come equipped with shade. There are about 25 full hook-up sites and they are with 50 amp. We had one of the few E & W with 50 amp. There is a bounty of recreational opportunity here including boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and birding. The night skies are dark here and we had absolute quiet here except during the thunderstorms. The campground accepts Passport America for discounts. The first night was nine dollars and 15 dollars for each additional night. We really enjoyed our weekday stay here. Enough so to extend by two nights.

We really like this well maintained and clean RV Park and we extended our stay. The campground host here are extremely friendly and RV people themselves. It is a short walking distance to Wall Drug and eight miles to the west entrance of Badlands National Park. The somewhat spacious level sites are composed of a weak base of gravel and grass between sites. Some sites have shade trees and others are in the open. We were in a row with full hookups. There are a few sites with 50 Amps and the majority are 30 Amps. The sites are all pull-through with gravel based access lanes. We found the WiFi working well without any disconnects. There are no park models here. There are no long term residents here except for the campground host. We found most of the occupants to be overnighters and by mid-morning only a handful of RVers remained. Cable TV is an extra fee and so is 50 Amp. The RV Park has a very small pool. Nearby the city of Wall has a community pool, which appears to be open to the public. A rail line runs adjacent to the RV Park. Only on the first night did we hear trains and none during the day. I-90 is far enough away not to be a noise problem. We stayed here for five days. We will return to this RV Park.

At best this is an average RV Park, which is adjacent to I-90 and next to a rail line. I noticed all the previous good ratings for this place and I had high expectations. I was somewhat disappointed and elected not to extend our stay beyond the three days. The primary drawback is the traffic noise, day and night, on I-90. It is also, the dominating view from the majority of the shadeless sites. We saw a grand total of one bird and not a one mammal. So perhaps they are smart to stay away from I-90. There is a rail line between I-90 and the RV Park. It was rather busy one day and then little or no rail traffic the other days. The sites have no frills and are mostly level on grass. There are three sites with 50 Amp and the other hook-up sites have 30 Amp. Our circuit breaker tripped twice and our lights went dim one evening. The Wi-Fi was excellent and this was a big plus for us. The cost of doing laundry here is two-dollars for the washer and I elected to do the wash elsewhere. The access road to the RV Park is hard pack dirt. We stayed here for three nights at the Passport America rate. I don't believe the RV Park is worth the full price and we likely will not return.

We really liked our one night stay at this RV Park. We would of stayed longer, but not at the current price. The RV Park is on a private working ranch on the Crow Indian Reservation. Guests can hike the ranch property and enjoy the great scenery and history of the Little Big Horn Valley. The views from the RV sites are magnificent. The RV sites are composed of a good grade of thick gravel with an adjacent lawn spot. The somewhat spacious sites have hook-ups of excellent quality. Access roads are gravel and sufficient for big rigs. The charm of the place is the view, natural ranch grasslands surrounding the sites, and the birding opportunities. The ranch seems to be a birding hot spot. The only drawback is the rail line down by I-90. For unknown reason the occassional trains would blast the horn at night even though there are no apparent crossings. We will return to use the place as an overnight stop.

This is a small comfortable RV Park, good for an overnight stop, adjacent to the small town of Reed Point just off I-90. We must of had the site of the previous reviewer. I trimmed the offended tree, what was left of it, even more. The office is now across the street at the gas station. The town's Post Office is directly across from the pull-through sites. It has numerous offending bright lights on at night to protect the mail. A walk through the town is worth while. Within a mile there is rafting, fishing and swimming at an access point for the Yellowstone River. Our site was not so level and the hook-ups are excellent. WiFi is available and it worked great. We camped here for one night at the Passport America Rate. We would stay here again.

I could be generous and award a rating score of seven for this RV Park. Yet, I experienced a few problems here and I'm not sure if the place is worthy of a seven. We made reservations in June for two separate dates. Upon arrival, with the confirmation letters, the staff had no record of the reservation. Plus, I found out they had charged me for night in June, which was an error they corrected. Regardless of what I feel about the place, its full or nearly full each night in July. It's the only "real" RV park along I-15 in this area of Montana. There are both spacious backins and pull-throughs here. I got the impression overnighters are assigned the west row pull-throughs. Those sites have wide access lanes,but they are somewhat dusty. My site was sloped and it was difficult to level the motorhome. A walk around reflected the majority of the pull-throughs are not level and they are lumpy. They charge ten dollars for RV washing. Don't bother! The sprinklers come on at night and they soaked everything I left outside and gave the RV a bath. The sewer drops are upslope. I always wonder where someone got an engineering degree when I find this situation at a site. For 150 sites there is one small restroom, limited size in a trailer, and it requires a code. There must be only one WiFi source. For the west pull-throughs the WiFi is extremely weak at best and it disconnects after taking several minutes to bring up a page. If one likes airport noise, jets, trains, trucks, and Interstate noise, this is an excellent place for the complete collection of sounds to keep you awake. We stayed for one night at the Good Sam rate. In the future we will drive to Fort Benton to stay overnight in this area.

This is a comfortable and quiet RV Park 16 miles west of East Glacier Park Village on Highway 2. There are 25 pull through sites exposed on a sunny meadow with scenic views of mountains. There are 16 backin sites beneath a canopy of hardwood and pine trees. Some of those sites may accommodate a larger size RV. The pull through sites are short and not so spacious. Most of the occupants park their tow or towed vehicle side ways on the site or on the adjacent meadow. Big rigs must disconnect to fit on the sites. Each site is sloped and not level. Our site was lumpy and required the placement of boards beneath a tire to achieve being level. The 50 Amp hook-up is placed at the front of the site. So we had to park in a reverse position in order to reach the outlet. Water pressure is low and there are no sewer connections except at the dump station. The backin sites have electric, but no water connection. There is a shower house in need of TLC. The price of washing laundry is a dollar and a quarter for each 20-minutes of drying. The RV sites are a sufficient distance from the highway for a super quiet night. There is absolutely no RV Park lights here at night, which provides for a great darken experience at night. We stayed here for seven nights and will stay here again.

This is an RV Park located beneath a pine forest, 35 miles south of East Glacier, and about 20 miles east of West Glacier on Highway 2. If you like trains, this is the place for you. The sites are sandwiched between the highway and the rail line. Both can be extremely noisy. The tracks were within 50 feet of our site. Freight trains run every 40-minutes. There is no horn blasting, but the nearness of the train was unsettling for us. A four engine train here causes the ground to shake and roll. We had the one of the two pull-through site and it was not level. Most of the backin sites are sloped and many are of short length. The access loop and sites are partial gravel and dirt. The hook-ups are of high quality. Big rigs may find the loop turns tight with pine trees. Only a few of the sites could accommodate a 40-foot plus RV, and not the pull-through. There is no WiFi, no cable TV and the trees blocked our Direct TV signal. Considering all aspects, this RV Park does not provide the value for the price. Its a long ways to either the west or east side of Glacier NP. We stayed here for two nights and we will not stay again.

This is a fairly good, safe, and friendly RV Park in the town of Conrad. We had a very spacious backin site with 30 AMP hook-ups. There are six pull-through sites with 50 AMP and cable TV. Some backin sites on the south end have 50 AMP. The WiFi worked without problems our entire stay. Gravel access lanes are wide and the site pads are composed of crushed gravel. Use caution when hooking up to the power box. There is a make shift circuit breaker bar, which does not clearly indicate on and off. Across the street there is a large tree shaded park serving as a pet area. Directly across from the entrance, there is a second City park with an Olympic sized community swimming pool. There is a two dollar fee, charged by the City, for use of the pool. Within easy walking distance, there is a reasonable price, name brand, grocery store. This RV Park is well away from I-15 and main street so there is little traffic noise. There is some train activity on the nearby tracks and at times they like to blast the horn beyond midnight. Our stay was for two nights. We will likely stay here again when we return from Glacier.

This is a rather small comfortable RV Park with standard features. It is adjacent to residential housing and wheat grain mills. My first impression of the place, as we drove-up, was oh no! We have discovered the opposite is true and even extended our stay by a night. The Passport America rate is a great value. The place is down right quiet, friendly, safe, and provided us with an Eastern Plains of Montana feeling. The friendly owners appear to have made recent improvements with the sites. They are a bit narrow and not exactly level. The hook-ups are top rate and the WiFi is excellent. There is a nice open patio area with flowers, grass and shaded by tall trees. Its a 10-minute walk to Missouri River and the east end of the river walk. There is much to here and volumes of history on display in the town. We will likely stay here again.

We stayed here for four nights while we explored the sites and birds of this Montana region. This RV Park is located in the open country side, three miles south of Dillon, and a sufficient distance from I-15. There is a loop on each side of an expansive mowed grass area. Access lanes are hard pack with gravel and so are the spacious sites. Each site has a panoramic view of surrounding mountain ranges and adjacent farm fields. The hook-ups are top rate and the WiFi service was excellent for us. The RV Park appears to be 100 percent dedicated to seasonal and overnight travelers. There are no Park Models here and no permanent appearing residents. A creek runs through the RV Park and there are two reed filled ponds. We found the place wonderful for viewing the birds. The only aspect we found to be a negative are the overhead lights located on the lawns. They sure are bright and offer no opportunity to view the dark sky nights of Montana. There is a pool, but it was barren of water. We really liked this peaceful attractive RV Park. The rate shown is the Good Sam daily rate. If we ever return to this area we would certainly stay here.

This is a comfortable and attractive RV Park being well taken care of by the owners. The sites are level, gravel based pull throughs with grass spaces between the sites. A few sites have been converted to concrete pads. The cottonwood trees are tall and provided considerable shade along with appealing character. I recommend the west end sites for satellite TV reception. Cable TV is available with the price and there is close to 100 channels on the line-up card. The WiFi works well here. On the downside, the sites are a bit narrow and the access lanes are narrow. A big rig will need to be mindful of the vehicles extending close to the lanes. There is traffic noise from the adjacent main street until it gets dark. On the corner by the RV Park there is a Flying J and across the street there is a Wal-Mart. The adjacent neighborhoods are excellent for walks or jogging. A big plus is they allow the washing of your vehicles at your site. We stayed for two nights and will look forward to returning.

This is a simple roadside RV Park with good accommodations for an overnight stay. The pull through sites are narrow and composed of some gravel mixed with dirt. Between the sites are strips of grass in need of watering. Pull throughs are up to 110 feet in length. Our site had a large cottonwood tree providing shade. We paid the two-dollar fee for Wi-Fi and found a good working signal at our site. There is a small restroom, clean, and needing some TLC. Had a nice view of the Fillmore fireworks show. The only time the Main Street traffic noise was bothersome was immediately after the fireworks. We will return again when traveling on I-15.

Based on previous reviews of this RV Park, I was expecting more. Perhaps my standards are set higher. This is a very good RV Park and especially so for an overnight stay. The place is not deserving of a perfect 10 or a 9 in my view. We enjoyed our two night stay and was grateful for the tall shade trees, which protected our motorhome from the blazing sun. It is the deep green heavy foliage trees that make this place an apparent gem. The solid concrete site pads and wide paved access lanes are other highlights of the park. We had one of the 12 level pull-through sites. The pull-throughs are narrow sites, less than 20-feet wide and the back-ins are wider at about 25 feet. Our utilities were well placed in the middle for easy hook-ups. There are many new sites here with smaller trees. A good number of newer sites are sloped and the hook-ups are upslope. Had we selected one of these sites we would not of been able to level our motorhome. There are a few long term occupants. Different rules must apply to the appearance of their sites? There are bright street lights on the access lanes, which distracts from the night time appeal of the park. New housing developments are encroaching upon this RV Park. The next time we visit the area we will likely use another RV park in the area

This is an RV Park within the city of Las Vegas providing excellent accommodations and friendly service from the staff. The amenities and facilities do not justify the use of "Resort" in the title. There is a terrific refreshing large pool, but no other features to meet my standards for a resort. There are three different types of sites, standard, deluxe, and premium. We had one of the deluxe pull through sites. They vary in length and are about 25-feet wide. The parking pad is paved and level. Access lanes are narrow and appear to have the potential to restrict big rigs with long tow vehicles. Hook-ups are at the extreme rear of the sites. We needed all 30-feet of the line to reach the 50 amp and 50-feet of hose for the water. We where not able to reach the sewer, though it did not matter for one night. The standard sites are completely paved with hot black pavement, which adds to the desert heat of summer. Those standard sites are all backins and very tight. There are scattered trees and none are large enough yet to qualify as shade at a site. There are numerous outstanding restrooms within easy walking distance. The WiFi is excellent and we had five bar service at our site. We will likely stay overnight again. The rate reflects a seasonal promotion and Good Sam discount.

Rather than battle the wind and heat on I-8 we made an early stop. The RV Park was a refreshing and quiet experience for us. The owners have been laying down more gravel to curb potential dust problems and adding more drought tolerate vegetation around the sites. The sites are spacious and can easily accommodate any size rig. Our site was level enough so we avoided using the hydraulic jacks. The WiFi is great here without any problems. Our only disappointment was the clubhouse being closed. Not sure why? Will we likely return.

This was a return visit for us to this RV Park. It is isolated in the Saguaro foothills in a quiet, attractive community and well east of Mesa. Once again, we enjoyed our visit here because of its proximity to open space hiking, great desert views and friendly staff. We arrived after the office closed and found our envelope taped to the door. It was obvious the staff made every attempt to ensure we had a pleasant visit. Our assigned RV site was a pull through with a flowering Palo Verde tree, which provided sufficient shade. This RV Park has perhaps the best library we have seen and used. The clubhouse is one of the best. I talked to one of the managers. This RV Park will continue to maintain and offer RV sites to overnight guests. From January through March they do not expect to have sites available for overnight RVers. Our rate reflects the Passport America rate. We will return to this RV Park when we are in the Phoenix area.

This Arizona State Recreational Area has four RV loops. Each loop has attractive open pine forest sites and some are close to the lake. During our mid-week stay the Ruddy Duck Loop and Cinnamon Teal loops were closed. The sites in those loops appear to be the best. Campground access roads are concrete and the RV site parking is concrete. The only pull through site was occupied by a campground host. Each site has full hook-ups and the 30 amp was sufficient for us. Many are double sites. The sites are shaded by pine trees with plenty of space and well away from the neighbors, if any. The pine trees blocked our ability to get satellite TV. There are lit concrete walkways to the restrooms. A great place to spend a couple of days during the weekdays. We will return.

This is an accommodating RV Park with very good sites and excellent facilities. It was well located for us to explore areas south of Green Valley. It was a seven day stay for us here, so we got to experience the positive elements and drawbacks. Each of the 82 sites are backins, composed of gravel, and some are sloped. We had to look for the water hook-up. Its on the opposite side of the sewer, below ground, in a valve box. The WiFi connections work without problems and web pages come up quick. The clubhouse is the largest we have seen. There is an indoor salt water pool, which was great for lap swimming because it was on the cool side. The exercise room is filled with out dated and mostly unusable fitness equipment. The primary drawback for the RV Park is it's location and neighbors. I-19 can be heard and we discovered I-19 has a high volume of truck traffic at night. Somewhere there is a rail line. Sometimes we heard trains at night. Adjacent on the north side is "Central Pet", which is a dog grooming and dog motel business. On the south side there is a less respectful RV Park filled with long term seasonal occupants who have barking dogs. So forget any expectations of a quiet serene stay. We had a site near the clubhouse and in the middle so the vocalizations of the dogs was not a problem for us. This is one of those RV Parks that admires street lights. Nearly each sites has a bright night light shinning on the RV. Its nice for security being close to the border, not so nice viewing the stars. Not sure if we will return.

This just could be the best RV Park in southeast Arizona. This was a return visit for us and the first time in the spring. Most of the seasonal snow birders had left or were in the process of getting ready to depart. Quality WiFi is available in the clubhouse. Direct TV and Verizon reception here is without problems. There was a wide variety of birds to observe during our stay including hundreds of Black Chinned Hummingbirds. Star gazing is very good here and the view from our site was tremendous. I'll move my rating up a notch to a perfect score because WiFi is now available. The walk to the clubhouse was pleasant. Spent four nights here and will return.

I like spacious sites with panoramic views and this RV Park well exceeds my expectations. It is also, very quiet. There are no planes, jets, trains, buses or any other noise. A vehicle goes by on Highway 80 once in a great while. There is a great view of the mountain ranges and it became a terrific location to watch a lightning show during one of our nights. The spacious level sites with high quality utilities and friendly staff provide for a great experience here. The RV Park and surrounding area is currently supporting a lush display of wildflowers. There is alot of open space available for walks, hikes and bike riding. This was a return visit for us and we extended our stay. Our rate was the Passport rate, and we will return.

Fortunately, we reserve only one night and it was the final night of our winter RV trip. This place did not live-up to its web site profile and the most recent reviews. This place is not a resort. The previous reviews giving this RV Park a score of four are a better reflection of the park. The sites are spacious, 40 x 60, with a few small trees and a table. The access roads are concrete and the sites are short mowed grass. Rule number one here is do not park your tow vehicle on the grass. Specific parking rules require parking vehicles on the adjacent access road. This gave us considerable problems of pulling into a pull-through site. Parked vehicles including large size trucks decrease the width of the road for turning big rigs into a site. Rule number two is no ground mats. They may hurt the grass. Which is crazy when a 20,000 pound motor homes is parked on the grass. Bare spots are numerous where the RV is parked. It was easy to track in dirt and wet grass blades into our motor home. Twenty-five of the sites are occupied by park models. Sites available for an RV are sloped downward towards the river. None are level. Our site had depressions and we were not able to properly level the motor home. The sewer hook-up is up hill on each site. We arrived on a Sunday when the office was closed. Thus we did not have the code for the restrooms. The swimming pool was covered and appeared not to be available for use. Wi-Fi is available for a $100.00 charge per day. There is a five-dollar a day electric fee in addition to the daily fee. The clubhouse is small with little to nothing to offer. The place does have access to the river and maybe its a gem in comparison to other nearby RV Parks. We stayed here for one night. We will not return to this RV Park.

Our two nights here revealed a few serious negatives with the RV Park. By being well west of Phoenix there is a potential for excellent star gazing. The many bright street lights of the RV Park greatly hindered viewing the night sky. They cased an orange glow on our site even though we were away from the light poles. There is an RV Park sewage facility that made considerable noise at times during the night. Traffic noise from I-10 was loud the first night and its a half mile to the north. As a previous review indicated, yes the activity center and clubhouse are a long walk from the over night spaces. Both appear to be part of complex once intended for another use. The restrooms require a key and a five dollar deposit for the key. A condition not acceptable to us. We elected not to use the restrooms. The sites are spacious beneath palm trees and are composed of loose bumpy gravel. Access roads are paved and wide. The Wi-Fi function was outstanding. We were told it was restricted to 90 minutes of use in a 10-hour period and an account was required. We found we could connect without an account and for periods exceeding 90 minutes. They have some activities and we notice they charge the users for some of those activities. The outdoor pool was good for lap swimming, but it was barely warm. There is no hot spa. The RV Park is okay for overnight. If they relocated the clubhouse and turned-off the street lights we would return.

An accommodating, pleasant and quiet RV Park west of Tucson for the 55 plus RVer. It's well away from urban areas and the typical city noise of Tucson. There is a natural landscape of desert trees, shrubs and cactus here with an open space corridor. Wide paved access roads lead to spacious level sites, which are composed of gravel. The sites have young trees and many border the saguaro cactus desert. The upper mountain view sites have terrific views of distant mountains. The full hook-ups function without flaw. The Wi-Fi is sufficient though it can be spotty at times with full occupancy. There is a laundry room, a small library, but otherwise facilities are lacking. Oddly, the pull-out side of the pull-through sites is not paved. Stayed here for nine nights in a motorhome. Look forward to returning here on our next RV trip to Tucson.

Overall, the RV Park is excellent for an overnight stay. There are both spacious back-ins and pull-through sites. The sites are dirty gravel with a table and most have a one or more developing trees. The Wi-Fi here for us was excellent, strong and extremely fast. The late arrivals are directed to pull through sites 19 - 33. I recommend avoiding those sites if the stay is longer than a night. The clubhouse doesn't look like much from the outside. Inside its attractive and accommodating with outstanding restroom facilities. It was open well past 9:00 PM. The downfall for this place is dust. The access roads and sites are a mixture of gravel and loose dirt. Any vehicle motion results in dust clouds. Extended stayers have ATVS and apparently there are no rules pertaining to them being driven in the park. There is considerable rail and highway traffic, which may bother some overnighters. We stayed for one night in a motorhome when returning home. We will likely stay again.

An extraordinary RV Park clearly demonstrating Pride in Ownership. Considerable effort goes into the maintenance of the park and it's well designed. The sites are huge and are all pull through sites. Most are level, wide and well designed. It's isolated and surrounded by miles of western open space. There are miles of hiking trails adjacent to the loops. The panoramic views from our site are incredible and inspiring. We had our choice of sites and quickly decided to extend our stay. There is a terrific hot water indoor pool and a hot spa tub. The full service hook-ups function without problems. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The only negative is the lack of a restrooms at the pool site. Not enough though to diminish our perfect score for the RV Park. We camped here at the PA rate, and we will be back again in the summer.

Stayed here for seven nights and found this RV Park to be sufficient for our needs. The place is nearly full with what appears to be long term snow-birders who are very quiet and friendly. The multiple activities must be the main attraction. There is something going on each morning, afternoon and evening. The facilities are functional but aged, in need of upgrading and have too much of a rustic, degrading appearance. The RV Park either started as a recreational water park or once incorporated the water park within the RV community. It is now abandon and looks terrible. One of the old chipped concrete swim pools is now a shallow fish pond. Sites are very tight and nearly all are back-ins on just dirt or gravel with no vegetation. A few sites like the one we had is naturally landscaped with the desert plants. The DSL Wi-Fi is excellent and fast. Desert birds are plentiful. For our site we had to endure some residential dog barking and traffic noise. Overall this is a good park that enchanted us on most days. We will stay next door next time. The rate shown is a weekly rate for a 30 amp site.

No longer an Encore resort and now named MacGavin's Queen Valley RV Resort. This is primarily a mobile home resort with about 50 RV sites intermixed with the residents. There are five pull through sites and we had number 114. A secluded RV resort surrounded by rugged saquaro hills. Its well away from the metro area of Phoenix, friendly helpful staff, and very quiet. To locate the resort its important to follow the QV signs or otherwise it would be difficult to find in Queen Valley. Nothing special about the RV site itself since its a just a gravel pad with sufficient spacing, full hook-ups and fast speed wifi. There is no cell phone service at the resort. The resort has a large library. In comparison to the tight space, urban style RV resort of the Phoenix metro area this place is a gem. Our price reflects the PA rate. We will stay here again.

Camped here for two nights and concur mostly with previous assessments. From what we saw in the area, this may be the best if one can go without cable tv and wifi. Verizon is hit and miss in the campground. There are wide paved access roads and paved sites. Sites 30-38 are the pull through with sewer. The rest are back-ins without sewer and have 30 amp. Site 58 and 59 seem to be the best for an RV over 30 feet and they can be reserved. Upper sites endure the sewage pump house noise. The restrooms are aged with marginal warm water for showers. The Colorado River is adjacent to the campground and there are no RV sites on the river. We camped here in a Motor Home and would stay again on a week day during the winter when the boating crowd is hibernating.

A BLM primitive campground a couple of miles west of Highway 395 and 13 miles south of Big Pine. Fill-up with water before coming here because there is no drinking water at the campground. There are no restrooms. Ideal dry camping boondocking with scenic views of the Sierras and White Mountains. The campground has many nearly leveled sites to accommodate the longer RV. Some sites have shade provided by a cottonwood tree and most have a table and barbeque grill. The campground road is paved and the camp sites are packed sand. While we were there the campground was nearly empty except for a long term RV camper and a campground care taker. It is best to camp away from the care taker who is some what odd and plays country western music very loud. For five dollars a night it’s a great deal with a pleasant cold water creek and panoramic views. We will likely return again.

A well maintained campground at the based of Rock Creek Canyon near Highway 395. Near Tom's Place, half way between Bishop and the turn-off for Mammoth Lakes. This is an excellent dry camping site for tents and RV under 30 feet. Access for longer RV is marginal due to narrow campground loop roads lined with boulders. There are a few possible sites for a motor home and a tow vehicle. All of the sites we checked were not level. Boulders, rocks, shrubs, pinyon trees and pot holes are present to inflict damage upon an RV and especially the larger size ones. Backing skills are challenged by the campground layout. There is a dump station across from the campground entrance. There are designated water hook-ups for an RV along the campground loops. Sites are shaded by Pinyon Pines or the taller Jeffrey Pines. We stayed in Site 41, which offered the most room for our motor home. When we left, a South Dakota couple with a 40 foot RV quickly relocated to #41. We camped here for five nights in a 36 foot motor home. We will not return with a motor home, but will with a tent and an SUV. The campground rates a 10 from me for tenting or small RV.

This place is far to big and its filled with single wide mobile homes. I was greatly disappointed with the site and I was expecting much more. The sites are nothing more than pea gravel with a tiny concrete patio slab and poorly maintained hook-ups. The sites are jammed packed together and mixed with residence. The back of our motor home was two feet from a mobile home. I felt like I was staying overnight on a city lot. Somewhere on the grounds and or the adjacent farm field someone was burning trash and making lots of dust. I've got five different sewer connection fittings and none would work in dump station, which is below ground level. The loops are to long and very narrow. I had to drive over golf course greens to make the turns to avoid smacking the mobile homes. The entrance road is very rough and will give any good motor home a terrific shaking. Well, they do have a very big pool, which was cool on a hot summer day. They do provide access to the Colorado River and they have great facilities. I will not even think about returning here.

This is an outstanding remote RV park, which for us served as a great base camp for birding the east side of the Chiricahua Mountains. Not your typical RV park by offering such a large site. We camped in a level site by the duck pond, which provided us with a number of birds to view. The Wi-Fi was excellent and fast. The staff is friendly, helpful and they take great care of the place. The roads are dirt, which adds to the rustic great away from it feeling. This place grew on us each day and we liked it more each day. The only reason I did not give it a ten is the owner has plans for more improvements. So on our next visit perhaps it will get the golden score of ten. We we will be back again.

An excellent recreational vehicle base camp during the off season with a great rate. The State Park has a warning to campers about being trapped in the campground due to flash flooding, which may disrupt the entrance road. We did not experience any thunderstorms during our visit. The back-in sites offer more privacy and shade from mesquite trees. Various birds can be easily viewed from the campsites. Sites are leveled with 50 amp service. There is plenty of space between sites with a nearby excellent restroom provided with hot showers. We will likely stay here again.

An impressive campground for motor homes and a great base camp for the Benson and Sierra Vista area. We were here during the off-season with just five other campers including a very friendly and helpful campground host. The thundertorms were great and the cavern tour is most worthwhile. The pull through sites have the 50 amp service, plenty of space, and we were able to easily level our motor home. The tall mesquite trees provided plenty of shade and we had great views of the Whetstone Mountains. There is a public dump station between the entrance station and the campground. We will return again.

This was are 3rd stay in a private campground and first in a motor home. We chose this place to test out are new motor home. We were highly impressed by the campground and the facilities. The social dinner on Thursday night was enjoyable and it introduced us to a friendly RV group. An excellent place for a few nights of luxury RV camping. The price is high for any sort of long term stay for us. We found everything here as advertised if not better. A great and friendly staff bent on providing the best possible customer service. We really like the views and hiking around the many trails and local roads.We will stay here again.
