$4 (after purchasing an out-of-state NM annual camping permit for $225 because we will stay in at least two other NM state parks) per night was for a 50A electric and water site on a level asphalt pad. In addition, the generously sized site had a covered picnic table with a privacy/windbreak wall, BBQ grill (which could not be used as they had a no wood or charcoal burning ban due to extremely high fire danger), and 12x12 gravel tent pad. There is a dump station about .5 miles from the campground which was easily accessible with our 40’ MH and attached tow car—no grate to remove, just the step on cap. Dense desert shrubbery is in and around the campground as well as numerous trees, all of which were blooming profusely during our stay. Animals we saw during our stay included lizards, white-tailed and jackrabbits, 13-lined squirrels, roadrunners, Scaled Quail, and countless songbirds. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park is very quiet. During our stay, there were high winds on several days including one night with wind gusts of 45 mph. The campground is just 18 miles north Carlsbad, NM which offers shopping and dining. Mexican restaurants are not open on Sundays. Google maps does indeed show the state park on the wrong side of the lake. Garmin and Bing show the state park’s location correctly. The nearby Living Desert State Park and Zoo is worth the visit even though it’s not included in the annual camping permit; cost is $5 per adult. We received four bars 4G on our AT&T cell phone. We used our Millenicom jetpack as a Wi-Fi hotspot and it worked very well on four bars of Verizon 4G LTE. OTA TV had 12 channels.

$4 per night was for a primitive site in a lined asphalt parking lot using our Golden Age Passport. We had to do a lot of leveling on the site we picked. There are picnic tables scattered about the campground that are open for all to use. There is no dump station but drinking water and a sink for dish washing are available. No showers are available. No wood or charcoal fires are allowed. Desert shrubbery and mountains surround the campground. We saw mule deer grazing the shrubbery next to our site. The highlight of this park are the hiking trails, one of which is a 3000’ rise above the campground with a magnificent view of the area. We used this campground as our base for visiting Carlsbad Caverns National Park as it is a speedy 55-minute drive. AT&T cell phone service was spotty. There was access to Wi-Fi at the visitor center. We received two OTA TV stations.

$17 per night was for a 20/30/50 amp electric with water and cable TV site. In addition, a daily entrance fee of $7 per person is charged unless you have a $70 Texas State Parks Pass, which is good to cover entry fee to all state parks for one year. Asphalt sites are mostly level. Each site has a concrete pad with a picnic table (some covered) in addition to the fire ring and BBQ grill. Desert shrubbery and mountains surround the campground but each site is mostly bare dirt/sand. Animals we saw during our stay included roadrunners, rabbits, and 13-lined squirrels. The highlight of this park is the 1.75-acre sparkling clear spring-fed pool where the depth ranges from three to 25 feet and swimmers, waders, SCUBA divers enjoy the water that is 72° – 76°F year round. Grocery shopping is very limited and expensive nearby. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. Spacing between the sites is very generous. We received three bars Edge on our AT&T cell phone. We used our Millenicom jetpack as a Wi-Fi hotspot and it worked very well on four bars of Verizon 4G LTE. Cable TV had 43 channels.

$24 per night was for a full hookup back-in site. Dirt/gravel sites are mostly level and there is adequate room for deploying slides and awnings. There is a common area that has a wood burning stove, a refrigerator, BBQ grill, picnic table, sink, washer/dryer, CDs and player,as well as a covered outside shelter that has a campfire ring. Management was there taking care of their small planted trees. As stated in previous reviews, check-in is done by the honor system or reservations can be made online if you’re paying by credit card. There are railroad tracks running alongside the campground but, thankfully, they blow their whistles about a half-mile either side of the campground and pass slowly by. The artsy town of Marfa proper is less a mile from the campground. If you like walking/biking there are many miles of trails/roadway in and near the park. We used the Tumblewide Wi-Fi (password at check-in trailer) for Internet access. AT&T reception was OK and Verizon reception was stronger. No OTA TV.

Four cable TV channels are included in the rate. There is a border crossing into Ojinaga, MX. You shouldn’t drive over to Ojinaga unless you have Mexican vehicle insurance, which is true of any Mexican border. If you do go south of the border (remember your passport), everyone says ¡Hola! and all are helpful and friendly.

$7 per night was for a primitive site at the Rio Grande Village campground using the Golden Age Passport. Dirt/gravel sites are mostly level. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ grill but no wood fires are allowed - ever. Heavy vegetation surrounds the campground and there are spectacular views throughout the 800,000 acre NP. If it’s a clear night, the sky is brilliant with stars. It’s over 60 miles to the nearest town so stock up on supplies before arriving. There are a couple of camp stores if you’re stuck for something. They have a surprising selection, and gasoline/diesel is available but prices are, of course, higher. If you like hiking there are many miles of trails within the park. Biking is allowed on the many roads that allow vehicles. Spacing between the sites is very generous. There is no cell phone reception at all. Good Wi-Fi is available at the camp store. No OTA TV. There is an open-for-about-a-year border crossing into Boquillas, MX which takes you to the town where there are about 150 inhabitants.

$35 per night was for a full hookups and Wi-Fi. The site itself is level, with what seems to be cliche, without a picnic table, fire ring, or BBQ grill. It didn’t seem to have any bathrooms or showers. There are big dips in the roadway at both entrances. If it were to rain, the area would be a big sloppy mess. The weeds between sites were scraggly and there was litter all around the park. We dealt with them over the phone and were told to pick out any empty spot. No staff was available except when they came to collect our money. It is not country living in our book. Most of the residents are full time workers at the nearby oil fields. Spacing between the sites is adequate. It’s a very quite location located at the end of a road. We received two bars LTE on our AT&T cell phone. We received 15 OTA TV stations. We would stay here again in a pinch, which is how we ended up there in the first place.

Most sites have some shade but some are in full sun. Water is available throughout the park and the dump station is located at the entrance/exit area. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Recreational opportunities are available in the park as well as in the local area. The park volunteer group is very active and it shows as there are many activities and the park is almost pristine in appearance. It is about a mile and a half to where WiFi is available at the township building as AT&T cell service was just three bars of Edge at the campground.

Daily rate is $25, weekly rate is $150, and monthly rate is $600 for a lakefront 50 amp electric, water, and cable site. All sites are first come, first served at this lovely municipally owned and operated campground. There is a mixture of full-shade, partial-shade, and full-sun sites. All sites are just a short walk down stairways placed throughout the campground to the very nice, sandy beach on Lake Superior. To enter the water one must walk over a strip of smooth agate pebbles so water shoes are advisable. Spacing between sites was roomy and most sites were level. All sites are hard-packed dirt, which allows you to park in most any direction. The dump station is located near the main entrance/exit. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Recreational opportunities are available in and around the park. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is adjacent to the park and offers many sights and activities. Do your grocery shopping in a bigger city before you arrive as there is very limited shopping/groceries available in the small town of Grand Marais. Wi-Fi is free at the campground, but it can be a bit flaky at times.

$23 per night was for 20/30 amp electric only. Michigan requires non-residents to purchase an annual recreation passport for $30.50 (which we had done at a previous MI state park) plus $6.30 for a vehicle pass for each state park, which was good for our week-long stay. All sites are just a short walk over the dunes to the very nice, sandy, mile-long beach on Lake Huron. Spacing between sites was roomy, and most sites were level. All sites are hard-packed dirt, which allows you to park in any direction. All sites have shade as this is a heavily wooded park. Water is available throughout the park, and the dump station is located near the entrance/exit. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Recreational opportunities are available in the park as well as in the local area. There is a 4.5-mile-long paved walking/biking trail that connects the park to Rogers City and the 40-mile point lighthouse. Wi-Fi is available at the library and McDonald's. AT&T cell service was just a few bars of the campground.

$33 per night was for full hookups. In addition, there was a $30.50 charge for a non-resident MI annual recreation passport plus $6.30 for a vehicle pass for our weeklong stay. There is a row of Lake Erie waterfront sites but all other sites are just a short walk to the beach. Pull-through sites were really long. Spacing between sites was adequate & most sites were level. All sites are in full sun. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Many recreational opportunities are available in the park. There are many miles of paved walking/biking trails around the park and they connect into town. No Wi-Fi at the park, but AT&T cell phone reception was great so we used our phone as a hotspot.

Most of the sites were heavily treed which made the hot, humid days more tolerable. If preferred, there are sites in full sun. Pets are allowed in all but one row of sites. There are naturalist led activities available on the weekends in addition to all the many regular activities. This is a very family friendly park. The volunteer group is organized and active. The pit toilets really needed attention but their terrible condition might have been exacerbated by all the rain we experienced during our week long stay. The showers were in good condition as were the flush toilets in that building. Park is convenient to shopping areas. If you want free Wi-Fi, you must go to the office where there is no seating available inside and only one picnic table outside. AT&T cell service was good so we used our phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot at our site.

This is a well built and maintained campground with lots of facilities for entertainment and recreation. The hiking trails are nice and can be used by bicycles. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The dump station was spacious and clean. Our only complaints are the restrooms were so-so as their upkeep wasn't what it could be--floors were wet--and there is no Wi-Fi or full hookups. Cell phone service was good so we could use it for a hotspot. Rate reflects senior discount.

Very lovely treed campground with lots of trails. Sites are mostly level. AT&T cell phone reception was very poor. Rate reflects senior discount.

Very lovely treed campground with about as many amenities available in the park as anyone could wish for. Sites are mostly level. AT&T cell phone reception was good. Trails were wet and uneven. Rate reflects senior discount.

AT&T cell phone service available. Wish they had campfire rings at every site, but they do have a couple of fire rings that are shareable. The entrance requires a very sharp backwards turn. Rate reflects in-season senior discount. Treed and beautiful scenery. Sites are close together but slides and awnings can be deployed. The Nolichucky River is beautiful.

Sites 33, 35, 37, & 39 have decks overlooking the lake & its beautiful surroundings. Park staff were exceeding welcoming, friendly, & helpful. 30 amp electricity is as high as it gets. AT&T cell phone reception is spotty. Daily rate reflects senior discount of 15%. Hookups were a stretch & on the wrong side.

The campground has eight RV sites, of which only sites 1 - 4 would accommodate a 40’ rig. It would take some doing with maneuvering and leveling blocks. Sites 1 – 4 have decks overlooking the lake and its beautiful surroundings. The park manager and staff were exceeding welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The wood for a campfire ring is provided free of charge. AT&T cell service was good. On some sites, the water faucet is located several feet down an embankment. Be sure to watch your hitch at entrance upslope. Daily rate reflects senior discount of $5/day.

Rate is Passport America for a max of two nights. Sites are all concrete pads, but spacious. Very near the city and all its amenities. Most sites are occupied by oil workers who don't seem to be around much so it's quiet. The area is well lit at night.

We stayed at the Bird Island Basin (BIB) campground, where all sites are first come, first served and are right up to the bay shoreline. There was only a $5 camping fee with our Golden Age Passport, ($10 without)! The pass is good for one week. No hookups but water is available nearby. The dump station is at the beach-side Malaquite campground which is an 8.4-mile round trip from BIB. If you are a windsurfer or kayaker, this is the campground for you! Cell phone reception was position-dependent but texting worked reliably. We purchased a cell phone amplifier, which allowed us to access web sites. Park staff was very friendly & helpful with lots of on-going activities.

Lovely campsites with shaded picnic tables on the Gulf side. Wi-Fi access was recently added. AT&T cell phone reception was decent.

Sites were spacious and well kept. The Wi-Fi access was restricted by LA State Parks to not allow streaming web sites, among others.

Sites were far enough apart to put slides and awnings out and staggered enough so you don't feel like the next camper is inside yours. Wi-Fi seems to be somewhat restricted by LA State Parks so streaming websites are not allowed.
