Only drawback to this campground was the Wi-Fi connection which was non existent in our area. Office kept saying that it had just been reset but we were never able to sign on any time during our 6 night stay.
We were in a back in spot along the river. The first thing that happened was we plugged into the 30 amp (50 not available on the pedestal). After 2 hours we found no electric. After checking our rig & replacing the GFI, we had electric for a couple of hours. Then electric went out again. No lights, heat (overnight low 38). 6 AM electric back on for a few minutes. Later electric is off and on several times. Eventually there were spikes and we receive a 220 jolt. It blows up tv and electric blanket. We replaced the GFI again. We plugged into pedestal next to us and everything okay. The owner "comps" stay but we were left holding the bag for our losses (television, electric blanket, 2 GFI's and unknown at this time other things). The campground was nice with large sites. The bath house was a bit far to go in the cold weather and it was unheated. We would stay there again, but not in the cold weather. We were there 12-28-10 to 1-2-11.
We have been using Ocean Canyon for several years. We have camped here 4 times this year and I have to say that since Reynolds signed on with KOA, the park is in better shape that we have ever seen it. Old trees taken out, brush cleaned up, wash room open more hours and the store has some items in it other than a bunch of "pirate crap". Tom Reynolds should be proud of the job that these KOA managers are doing. Unlike most KOA's, WI-FI is on a pay for basis and the cost is pretty high, about $9 per night on a daily basis. Options are nightly, weekly or monthly. Upside is the internet is fast.
All sites at this park were dirt and rock. The pull-throughs were long enough not to unhook. There is a small store, gas station and restaurant on site. Easy on and off from I-40. The showers and bathrooms are individual and clean. A nice park to stay while traveling from place to place. Wi-Fi was very slow at our site.
The sites here are pretty level. Our site had a somewhat grassy area, mixed with stickers, weeds and foxtails. Sprinklers came on while setting up at 3:30 in the afternoon. Pet run was mostly dirt due to some work going on inside the fenced area. Wi-Fi did not work at our site but did in office area. We had to hook-up cable in 3 sites before we got it to work. The continental breakfast was average. Don't know how they were rated as New Mexico's best RV park...
The park was a little hard to find but was worth looking for it. It is nice, and family owned and it showed. The park was clean and well maintained and was nicer than most parks that charge much more money. We put this park on our "stay again" list. Well done, Mr. & Mrs. Park Owner!
The park would have been good for one or two days. All sites were dirt or gravel and the roads are narrow. There are too many rented golf carts running up and down the roads at all hours raising dust clouds. For the price WIFI should have been included and not an extra charge. On our next trip to Gettysburg, we will definitely cross Drummer Boy off of our list of places to stay.
Most pricey park we have been in since being on the road for past 2 months. Parking in the designated pockets takes some backing (and praying) when the opposite space is filled with a 39' motorhome. Getting out of the parking lot can be a bit tricky with traffic. Would stay there again if we got a back in or pull through.
We stayed for 3 days. There was a daily charge for electric over the camping charge and also a $2 a day charge for air. Roads muddy and full of potholes. Another we have removed from our list. A real pit that looks nothing like the brochure.
We spent 4 nights here and would have left if there was somewhere else to go. Coin operated filthy bathrooms, $5 per day charge for dogs. 30 amp electric that would hardly run the rig. Per person charge for visitors. This place was the real pits. Took it off our list.
Spent three of the worst nights of our trip here. Kids running around screaming and yelling until midnight even after complaints made to management. A bit pricey at $37 a night and an extra $3 for a limited number of television channels. We crossed this one off for a return visit.
