We stayed here once before, this past March. Last time we were pleasantly surprised with this park and it's cleanliness but this time the restrooms and showers are in a state of sad neglect. Someone soiled the floor of the large woman's toilet prior to our arrival. Okay, I don't understand what people are thinking when they do this, but sadly it happens often enough in public places. However in the few days that we have been here, that floor is still soiled. In addition, the shower areas are full of dead beetles and the restroom smells as if it's been months since any real cleaning has been done. On the plus side, the spaces are nice and wide with concrete pads with extra parking and ample area to walk pets. Light sleepers might have trouble with highway noise but it hasn't bothered us. There are plenty of area services and the nice weather has allowed us to get some much needed maintenance done on our trailer. Other than the restrooms needing a professional cleaning (or the services of a fire hose and some disinfectant) I'd say that this place would be a decent highway stop for a few nights.

We have stayed at this park once before and again were not disappointed. The only reason that we did not stay longer (we had planned a 3 day stay before heading further south) was a major Pacific storm that had 4-5 days of hard rain in our future and we had a few post storage maintenance issues to deal with that required outdoor work. The park was very welcoming toward our dog and there is a nice grassy pet area for her use. There were even fresh local apples in the office! A nice treat after a day's drive. The price is certainly right. We'll be back to visit again.

This park would probably be charming in season with warm dry weather. The pool and other camp activities were open but we arrived after a significant rain and the dirt parking areas left it's mark all over our RV inside and out. The plus side: The people are all super nice from the office staff to fellow campers. The lake setting is lovely, well treed and spaces are fairly large. The downside: The place could use some updating, most specifically the bath and showers which were fairly clean but rustic. The beat up, old trailer used as a cabin was a drag on the charm of the place as well as blocking a large part of the view of the lake from the premium view spots. Overall the rates were very expensive for what was here and open for use. (The rate quoted reflected a standard non view space, no pets or boats with tax included.) This park could benefit from off season rates and if they had them, we might have stayed longer.

Lovely natural park, very clean and quiet. Lots of wildlife visit this park including a group of herons that nest in the tall trees in late winter which is a plus for us. Staff was helpful and friendly. The park is close to everything in Sedona. This park would merit a 10 from me except for two things, one outside their control (high accommodation/bed taxes which raised the rates quite a bit higher than advertised) and the bathroom construction/rehab that created very crowded conditions and lines for the showers at times. It also appeared that local people other than campers were using the showers throughout the morning creating an additional burden on the already crowded situation. The staff did an admirable job however keeping up with the high levels of traffic in the restrooms as they were nearly always very clean, often sparkling. The park has reliable speedy Wi-Fi, good water and recycling which is important to us. We stayed roughly a week and were only chased out by an approaching winter storm. We will return to this campground again.

A decent park overall. Clean, close to Vegas activities. Pretty tight parking and only a few places to walk a dog are the only real downsides. I'm not much on urban parks but as they go this one was fine. Also the proximity of the movie theater was a real bonus as we aren't into gambling.

This place is a real find. For those looking for tons of amenities and structure, pass it by. For RVers looking for scenic beauty, a relaxed and friendly environment with very adequate basic necessities, this will be your kind of park. The park has docks on Lake Havasu, a swimming beach, lots of hiking trails, fire pits, huge parking spaces, shade trees. Wildlife visits the park. We had a great time here. We will definitely come back when we pass that way again.

This is a nice park. It is clean and well kept, landscaped with cactus and palm trees. Depending on where one is parked, it can be quite a hike to facilities or the office. It seems that there are a lot of long term residents and then the "over nighters" where we were parked. It is quiet and regularly patrolled. For us, it's not a place to spend a lot of time but perfectly fine for a night or two.

Nice desert campground. Many return visitors that come back every year and long term campers. The park is well kept, clean and the staff and campers are friendly and helpful. There are lots of birds for those so inclined. Some highway traffic and train noise but we were not disturbed by it. A lot of planned and well attended activities. Decent commute to Bisbee, Karchner Caverns, area national parks and Tucson. We had fun and will be back to stay when in southern AZ.

Overall a very nice park. Level gravel sites with grassy "yards" and decorative shrubs as well as shade trees. Private suite baths with showers that are reliably clean. Clubhouse and activities. Friendly easy going staff and fellow campers alike. From conversation with a few folks, many were repeat visitors over the years. Convenient to Old Mesilla and Las Cruces. Wi-Fi speedy and reliable. Plenty of information and access to extra phone books for the visitor. The only downside was the inconvenient bathroom cleaning time right in the middle of the morning hours. We will definitely be back when we go through Las Cruces.

Seemed to be a pretty nice campground with natural landscaping but 7" of snow due to bad luck and poor planning on our part. Most of the park amenities were closed for the winter. Close to I-25 but we heard no traffic noise. All hookups worked through fairly extreme temperatures. Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. The staff was friendly and helpful with local travel and restaurant advice. The bathrooms were clean but cold, understandable given the winter storm. The movie loaning program helped us get through a snowed in day in Las Vegas. We'll come back to stay again if we are stopping in Las Vegas for a night or more.

Overall a decent campground. Sites were of a decent size, red rock gravel under large trees. Lots of wildlife visit this park. The park is very close to Manitou Springs and of course the Garden of the Gods among other attractions. We were unfortunately there when most of the campground amenities were closed for the winter. The restrooms/showers were fine but the hot water was slow in coming and not every shower was equal in terms of water temp and pressure. The laundry facility was excellent. The water was good tasting and the staff was friendly and easy going. We would stay at this campground again.

Friendly folks but the campground was fairly quaint for lack of a better term. Pretty noisy from the highway as there was no barrier to the sound of big rigs coming down the hill and general city traffic noise. The restrooms/showers were marginal. If I'm greeted by spiders I'm not usually a happy camper. Though we were planning to stay in the Springs for a few weeks, we moved on after a night. Too bad though, with a noise fence and some sprucing up, it could be a much nicer campground and it is otherwise excellently located, convenient to the things we were there for.

We arrived later than we usually stop and took whatever was available as far as parking to be had for overnight. My lasting impression is that the park was mined of all it's potential years ago and needs the merciful help of a bulldozer. The restrooms smelled terribly of mold or mildew, so much so that I refused to use them after going in there once. The water was iffy tasting, power worked, we didn't connect to sewer, internet is extra $$$. Granted that this next thing wasn't the park's fault but the site is fairly exposed and the parking is perpendicular to the prevailing winds which howled that night and there was very little rest for the rocking. The up side: The desk clerk seemed to be a nice woman. That was it. I will not go back there again, ever. Better to dry camp in a parking lot.

Bell 2 Lodge caters primarily to elite heli-skiing adventurists and summer travelers driving the Cassiar Highway. It is a remote lodge with picturesque cabins with a few RV spaces located just south of the main cabin area. We arrived a few weeks before they were to close for a month to gear up for their winter tourism season and though the campground was technically closed, they opened water service for us due to milder temperatures. It is a pet friendly place with a fantastic dining hall. We had morning brunch the day we left and it was quite memorable and delicious though the guests were few at that time of year. The sites are level gravel surrounded by tall forest on two sides and 10 sites have water, 15 amp power and sewer (in the summer months). The lodge has a meeting hall, saunas, and a large hot tub. Communication can be a problem as it is all done via satellite, no cell phone coverage so keep trying. A lovely but wild and remote spot to stop.

Pretty nice overall. The desk help was outstanding. We arrived there in fairly cold temperatures and our rig was winterized so we were totally dependent on the restrooms and showers which were both very adequate and surprisingly warm. Given that most northern parks were closed to campers and over nighters (we spent the night behind a 24 hour Chevron in Tok, Alaska the night before) it's being open to the last stragglers out of the arctic is a very big plus in their favor.

Nice little RV park on the prairie. Well landscaped with trees and flowers in season. Sites are roomy and have plenty of grass which our dog loved. Restrooms/showers were nice and clean, as well as roomy, the laundry was huge. The staff was helpful and courteous. We'd stay there again and in fact we decided to stay there one extra night to decompress from a several thousand mile drive.
