I limited my rating to a "6" due to lack of amenities, but this is nonetheless a quite suitable place to spend a few days while visiting Taos. They make the best of a location on the plains just west of Taos with some plantings to separate the adequately sized sites, a large community ramada for outdoor cooking and eating, plenty of places to walk the dog, and one row of sites has a nice view of the mountains. It is quiet enough, and nicely dark, at night, although there is highway noise during the daytime. The water is excellent, electric service is strong, and the sewer does what it is supposed to do. The wifi at the sites is mostly very slow - it was intimated that the signal is better in the lounge adjacent to the office and convenience store, but I did not investigate that. There are a few permanents but their sites are neat enough and located all together on the highway side of the park. Although this is not the closest of the Taos RV parks to downtown, it is on the side of town with less traffic and closest to the Pueblo. The price shown includes taxes, and seems a bit high for what you get, but it's Taos. We would stay here again.
A very nice Corps of Engineers campground built on a hillside sloping down to Abiquiu Lake. There are water plus electric sites, non-utility RV sites, and tenting sites. The sites are widely spaced and of varying sizes up to 80' long, and include a substantial shelter for the picnic table. The internet reservation website shows two sites with sewer hookups, but the sewer connections are no longer in use. Cell service is limited. The lake offers water sports activities, and the immediate vicinity offers hiking, biking, and sightseeing opportunities. Access is easy, the camp hosts are very friendly, and the campground is well-maintained. It is quiet day and night, and dark except for a few security lights. The price shown is for a water plus electric site with the half-price Federal Senior Pass rate. We would stay here again.
Easy to find using the map on their website. A bit tight to maneuver around within the park. There are regular sites and patio sites. If you are staying for very long, have slides on both sides, and/or spend a lot of time outside your RV, spend the extra for a patio site. Some of the regular sites are quite narrow. Water, electric, and sewer are good, but the wi-fi is essentially useless most of the time. (The owners have spent over $1M on a solar power system, for which I salute them, but it would be nice if they would spend some money on wi-fi as well.) An excellent park for dogs with a lengthy walking trail and lots of open space. There is a large recreation/meeting room and a decent store. It is quiet and dark at night, with sweeping views of the surrounding area. There is a Railrunner train station close by, and easy highway access to all the Santa Fe tourist sites. The price shown is a Good Sam weekly rate including taxes for a regular pull-through site. We would stay here again.
This park is easy to find and easy to maneuver around in. The roads and spaces are firm gravel. Spaces are adequately sized, and most offer some shade. The utilities, including wi-fi, are good. There is a large area for dog walking. It is quiet all the time and nicely dark at night. Since the area is cool in summer, there are a lot of seasonal visitors and some permanents, but all are well-kept. There are no onsite recreational facilities but the park is in a rural area with lots of public land for outdoor activities. The price shown is cash or check only and includes taxes. We would stay here again.
If you are in the area and need a place to spend a night, this is it. A very plain vanilla park, although an effort was made by planting and maintaining a tree and some shrubs between sites. The utilities including WiFi worked well. The manager is a very friendly individual. The park was almost empty at the end of July, so it is difficult to assess site size. There is some highway noise at all hours, and lights at night from billboards. The general store and gas station that fronted the park is now closed. The few other residents appeared to be all long-term. For what it is, this is a perfectly acceptable park. The price shown includes taxes. We would stay here for one night, again.
Someone spent a lot of money building this park a few years ago. It has asphalt roads, concrete pads, concrete sidewalks, planting strips between sites with grass, shrubs, trees, a four compartment fenced dog yard, and an open dog walking area. Access to and within the park is good. The spaces are adequately sized including a car parking pad, and the utilities are good including free Tengo internet with no login name or password required. The park does need a good dose of weed control, and most of the concrete pads are cracked rather badly, but they are dead level. A little cosmetic work and this park would get a "9" rating from me. It is very quiet at night. There are a number of longer-term residents, but they are located around the perimeter of the park and there is very little clutter around their sites. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes. We would stay here again.
This park is totally paved in concrete except for planting strips between sites, which doesn't sound inviting, and candidly it is not pretty, but the roadways are wide and the sites are dead level, wide enough for slides on both sides, and long enough for 40-foot rigs and a space for a detached tow. The power is strong (benefitting from not much demand for air conditioning), the water is the best I've tasted in a while, and the Wi-Fi is excellent. There is a small fenced dog run. The recreation room is nicely finished, and furnished with TV, magazines, books, puzzles, videos, and a pool table. There are security gates at entrance and exit. It is a bit removed from US 101 so the noise is not bad, it is dark at night, and since it is not near the beach, there are no ATVers here. The office staff is friendly and efficient, and the park is well maintained. The few long term residents are not conspicuous. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes. We would stay here again.
This is a park from the 20-foot travel trailer era. It is difficult to find, and for rigs more than about 30 feet long, difficult to maneuver around in. The office is not clearly marked - you have to rely on the owner to spot you pulling in. Some of the spaces are on grass, nice enough for smaller RVs. The power is 30 amp only, and on the hot summer day we were there, the voltage was barely above 100. Few if any sites have sewer connections. If someone is using the dump station, the entrance/exit to the park is blocked. The water was adequate. Surprisingly, there was decent wifi. Quite a few of the spaces were taken by single-wide manufactured houses or by permanent looking RVs. Pets are no problem. The price shown includes taxes. We would not stay here again.
This is a well-thought-out, well-maintained park and easy to find, easy to get in and out of. The office staff is welcoming and efficient. The spaces are adequate size, paved, and the pull-throughs are angled for easy entry. All the utilities are above average, including free, fast WiFi. There is a large area for walking dogs. There is a gate at one corner of the park to provide direct pedestrian access to the Woodburn factory outlets mall. It is surprisingly quiet, given the proximity of Interstate 5, and dark at night. A few long-term residents are mostly gathered in one section of the park. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes. We would stay here again.
This park is best approached from the north on WA 527, and thankfully, there is a traffic light at the entrance. The office staff is friendly and efficient. All the roads and spaces are paved. Although the roads are narrow, the spaces are angled to make backing in not difficult. The spaces are barely adequate width, but shrubbery between spaces affords some privacy. All the utilities work well. Only one hour of Tengo internet per day is free, but it did work well since the time limit apparently cuts down on Skyping and streaming movies. It is remarkably quiet and dark at night for a city location. This is probably the best-located park for visiting Seattle and environs. I believe quite a few of the residents are there for an extended time, but there is not the junky appearance I associate with permanents. A few quibbles: the maximum number of spaces was shoehorned into the available land, not surprising in an expensive area, which gives a crowded appearance to the park; most sites are generously sloped which makes for interesting leveling results; grass cuttings were not collected, making a mess if you have pets to track them in; it would be a soggy mess in the rainy season. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes. We would stay here again.
This is a tidy little park managed by a very nice couple. You are parking mostly on grass with a firm base, and the pull-through sites especially are generously sized, both width and length, and most sites offer shade. Water, sewer, and electric are good. The Wi-Fi is fast at all hours, something that we haven't found to be the case very many places lately. Pets are welcome - there is plenty of room to walk them. The picnic table was new and clean, another rarity these days. They will let you wash your rig. Although right beside US 2, it is quiet enough at night. There are lots of things to do in the immediate area. The price shown, cash or check only, includes taxes. We would stay here again.
I was torn between a 7 and an 8 rating, but went with 8 due to the extra amenities. They have some good highway signs to direct you to them. The park is in several sections. One is built within a patch of forest, with sites of various sizes inserted wherever they would fit among the trees. There is a more open section of tent and small RV sites, and then another open area with conventional rows of identical sites with some decent landscaping but no large trees. Anything over 36 feet should choose the latter. (Within the forest, sites 13 and 13B are good sized pull-throughs.) Kalispell is a family vacation area and there were lots of small children having a good time, since the park has a playground, swimming hole on a small creek, canoe rentals, volleyball court, and lots of roads for bicycle riding. Water, sewer, and electric were all good; they even let you wash your rig. Despite having five hotspots, the Wi-Fi was almost unusably slow except in the middle of the night. They welcome pets. It is a very quiet location (except for the occasional plane passing over from the Glacier Park airport) and very dark at night. There were a few long-term residents. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes. We would stay here again.
A few miles north of Helena, this park is easy to find and easy to maneuver around in. The spaces are adequate width and good length. Water, sewer, and electric work well. The Wi-Fi is good at times of low use, but marginal at best during the usual heavy usage times; going to the office lounge is the best bet for mission-critical access. There is a good dog-walking area. It is quiet at all times and dark at night (a good thing to us). The price shown is Good Sam including taxes; a bit pricey for the level of amenities, but Helena does not have a lot of choices.
This park is easy to find and easy to get around in. The spaces are generously sized, with lots of grass, and water, sewer, electric, and wifi all work well. Pets are welcome, and there is a huge area for walking them. About a half-mile from Interstate 15, it is quiet and wonderfully dark at night. There seemed to be very few long-term residents. The park was full the two nights we were there, so reservations would be advised during the summer. There is a lot to do in Dillon and the surrounding area, and this is a good base camp from which to operate. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes.
This park is easy to find, a little tight to get around in, but worth the effort. The front row of pull-throughs is a bit more spacious than the remainder of the park, but large rigs were scattered throughout. The managers are very friendly, there is a nice grassy area for dog walking, and quite a lot of shade. Water, sewer, electric, and even Wi-Fi worked well. Although the park is adjacent to a busy highway, we were not bothered by the noise - the tenters who are closest to the highway might think otherwise. The price is Good Sam including taxes - a good value.
This compact park, part of a Best Western hotel, is right in the heart of Cedar City, a nice little town with a still-prosperous downtown featuring several restaurants and tourist-oriented stores to visit. Access is a bit tricky, and beware of the almost invisible, diagonal speed bumps, and several potholes, that will really toss your rig around. The spaces are minimal size with back-to-back utilities, but the water, sewer, and electric work well. The Wi-Fi varies from OK to basically unusable, mostly the latter. There is a place to walk your dogs. There is a lot of lighting at night, but the noise from the adjacent main street dies down later in the evening. The price shown is Good Sam including taxes.
This park is mostly used by snowbirds and year-round residents, for whom it is economical ($210/mo plus electric) and within a reasonable distance from Kingman and Bullhead City, AZ and Laughlin, NV. But it is also an inexpensive first or last night stopping place on our trips from Phoenix. It is basically a parking lot with a perimeter line of trees. The staff is friendly, they are pet friendly, utilities are good, access is good, it is quiet at night, and they have a large clubhouse. The price shown is Good Sam including tax. The modest rating is reflective of the lack of amenities.
This RV park is part of a large manufactured home community in central Alamogordo, but the RV park is in a section by itself, not intermingled with permanent houses. Access is good, and the office staff is friendly and efficient. The 50 amp sites are in a newer part of the park with much fewer trees and landscaping than the 30 amp section. Wi-fi is available only at the central office. The back-in spaces are adequate width and length, but the power pedestals are at the rear of the spaces. A picnic table is included. There were many cable TV channels available. They had no problem with us having three dogs, and they have a double pet enclosure as well as access to a large public area along a drainage canal. (Looks better than it sounds.) It was generally pretty quiet day and night. Longer-term residents were mostly gathered at one end of the park. This is a good place to stay while seeing local attractions such as White Sands National Monument, Oliver Lee State Park, the Space History Museum, and the solar observatory near Cloudcroft. The price shown is the daily rate including tax. We would stay here again.
While this park is not within walking distance of central Silver City, it makes up for it by being quiet, and nicely laid out with generous size spaces, some suitable for 45 foot coaches. The sites are inserted into pre-existing natural vegetation that provides varying amounts of privacy and in some cases even some shade. Roads and pads are gravel. Electric, water, sewer, and Wi-Fi worked well. They have a realistic dog policy - just pick up after walking them anywhere in the park, and no limit on number. The longer term residents are located chiefly in one area of the park. The price shown is the daily rate includes tax. We will stay here on our next visit to Silver City.
This park is easy to access off I-40. The office staff and office/store facilities are top-notch. The roads within the park are paved and the pads are mostly gravel. Spaces are adequate size but not generous, and include a picnic table. As others have noted, the water connections can be a bit tricky. Electric power is good. When we were there, a new Wi-Fi system was being fine-tuned, but it worked well almost all the time. Our site was right next to one of the antennas. We did not use their cable TV. We especially appreciated their realistic pet policy, including allowing three dogs. The pet area had too many stickery plants to use for our hairy dogs, but you are allowed to walk them anywhere as long as you pick up after them. They have a decent pool and a nice TV room, which doubles as the eating area for the complimentary continental breakfast. There was a variety of food available and the selection varied day by day. The park is well-maintained. We were on the next to last row in the back, farthest from the freeway, so noise was not an issue, although it could be at the front of the park. There were few if any long-term residents. The park is within ten mostly freeway miles from Old Town, the Biopark, and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. The price shown is the daily rate including tax. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Albuquerque.
Don't be deterred by the relatively low rating; it is largely because parts of this campground are a work in progress. This is an excellent overnight stop in an area of Arizona that has few options. The sites are large and easy to get in to. The owner, who also operates a 100,000 acre ranch nearby, is very friendly. There are a fair number of long-term residents, but their sites are much more picked-up than typical. According to the owner, the place can really be full of construction workers when there is maintenance in progress at either of the nearby power plants, so check availability before you show up. Also, there are no signs that I saw along the main highway directing you to the park, so map the location out before you arrive. This is a real bargain at $20 for full hookups including 50 amp electric. We would definitely stay here again.
This is an attractive campground right in the heart of Sedona, alongside Oak Creek. Dedicated walkers could visit the tourist commercial core of Sedona on foot. There are plentiful, large oak and Arizona sycamore trees shading most of the park. The individual sites vary in size and ease of placing your RV. Long Class A and 5th-wheel rigs might find some of them a bit tight. The staff keeps the park cleaned up nicely. The office staff is efficient and friendly. So, why the "5" rating? Three reasons. (1) We spent four days here when the afternoon temperatures were approaching 100 degrees. The park's electrical system was insufficient for these conditions; our coach's power management system kept shutting off our power due to low voltage. We could not run air conditioners and microwave simultaneously. (2) The park Wi-Fi, although it had good signal strength, was so slow as to be useless most of the time. (3) When draining our waste water tanks, it was necessary to mostly trickle the wastewater into the park sewer system to prevent it backing up. The nightly rate does not include the pet surcharge of $2/day/animal. I recognize that Sedona is an expensive place to visit and to conduct a business. If the utilities had worked I would not have minded the expense of staying here. The next time we visit Sedona, we will probably stay at one of the nearby towns and drive into Sedona.
