Very nice state park. The sites are very spacious and it's a good thing, because there are few trees in this desert setting to provide privacy. The showers are clean and have plenty of hot water. The hiking here is excellent, with trails for every ability. We hiked everything from the Birding Trail to the Romero Pools Trail and loved it all. Would definitely return here, but only in the cooler months. It was plenty warm even in November.
Yes, this park is clean and well maintained, but we would not have stayed here if there had been any other option available. I don't like "camping" in a park that is basically just a big paved and cement lot and that is lighted at night like a prison yard. It was expensive, too! I know this place will suit a lot of people well, it's just that although we like the comfort of camping in our self-contained trailer, we also like nature and dark night skies.
This is a little used and wonderful small state park about an hour east of Flagstaff. We've stayed here twice and loved it both times. The sites are spacious, the campground is quiet, the bathrooms/showers are clean, and the ruins are beautiful and interesting. Decent hiking, gorgeous sunsets, interesting petroglyph's, and a wonderful small visitor's center with a terrific collection of Hopi pottery. The rangers love their work and are very knowledgeable. A nice change of pace from huge national/state parks.
This is an excellent KOA. We have camped here on five different trips and will come back anytime we are in Santa Fe. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The showers and bathroom are immaculate and have plenty of hot water. People sometimes complain about the dust, but hey, this is the Southwest and dust comes with the territory! I would much rather have dust than have to camp on a paved surface in an RV park that looks like a parking lot. We also greatly appreciate that this KOA doesn't light up the campground like a prison at night. You can actually see the stars!
We camped here for a week because we were attending the Festival of the Cranes at Bosque del Apache. Sorry to say that this campground was terrible. The bathrooms and showers were disgusting. They were filthy when we arrived and were not cleaned at all the entire time we were there—I found the same used band aids, tissues, etc. in the women's restroom for an entire week. There was only one women's shower working, and it quit in the middle of my shower—I ended up going into the men's shower to get the shampoo out of my hair! I would never camp here again.
