We just stayed for the night as we were passing through. Zero complaints and would stay here again. Wi-Fi worked great. Paved roads in park were easy to maneuver and we are 67 ft long. Did not use the pool or any other facilities. Staff was very nice and friendly.

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Death Valley. Would stay here again. Good Wi-Fi. The park is fairly plain, but you are in the middle of the desert, so not a lot you can do landscaping-wise. Kids enjoyed the pool. Park hosts were nice. Really no complaints.

We stayed for one night while passing through. The owner is a really great guy, however there is a lady who checks you in who is very rude. The sites are kind of tight, but certainly do able. Wi-Fi worked great, all utilities were fine. They have a little racket that they work, so heads up. Basically they charge you $5 for a key to the bathrooms, and when you leave you give the key back and get your $5 back. If you do not take the key, you don't get your $5 back; we found this out the hard way.

We stayed here for a couple of days. Overall its a nice and clean park, and would certainly stay here again, however, there are some big things to overcome. There is no internet service so to speak, yes there is a really over priced, hourly rate service managed by a 3rd party company that one can use. For the price of this place, they need to have free Wi-Fi. For me, this is a deal breaker, that come next time, we will probably try out another location in the area, before coming back here. The pool & club house on the property are nice, we used both. Showers were nice and clean, did not do any laundry, so can't speak to that. The other big complaint we had: no trash cans. There was no where for us to throw our trash. Asked, they said just put trash out on the street, we will come by and pick it up. Come morning, we find a stray dog neck deep into the trash bags making a mess. Another problem are the ants. In this area of Texas, its kind of a hard thing to control, but something needs to be done. The ants are everywhere. We did not have any get into our MH, however the couple next door to us had them get into their Travel Trailer while they were gone at beach for the day: what a mess that was. As for small complaint, no cable is kind of bad. Was able to pick up a few channels OTA but for a "Luxury" park, they need to offer cable TV.

We just stayed for a overnight on way through NM. This place is clean head to toe, the restrooms, showers, RV sites, etc., everything is spotless. The sites are level and well kept. Only small knock is that the internet is a little slow, but certainly works fine. We would definitely stay here again. Anyone who would give this place less than a 7 is someone just being a hater.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and used 2 different camp sites for our stay. This is your typical bare bones, boon docking camping. There are no hook-ups of any sort. The bigger problem with this campground is that there is no uniformity to the sites, and the sites are all very small and laid out pretty poorly. We were in a 30 ft motorhome with our Jeep in tow. We could barely fit down the roads in the park with trees and branches scraping the sides of our coach as we drove down the small, windy roads. We managed to get a ticket from the Gestapo (park ranger) for not having all of our wheels on the pavement. When we tried to explain that the site was too small to properly fit the motorhome & Jeep all on the pavement, we were given the answer that was not their problem. Ended up unhooking tow and moving Jeep wheels over 2 ft so that all 4 wheels were touching the pavement. This park also has some really bad generator rules; on one stretch of sites, you can not use your generator period (pine loop). On the other sites that you can use your generator, the hours are 8am-10am and then 6pm-8pm. This may seem reasonable, save for the entire park is up and going by 7am and everyone has left by 9am at the latest. You will hear everyone moving at 6am; no biggie for us, as we were up, but not able to fire up generator and make coffee till 8am, no thanks. After the second day, we ended up firing up the generator up at 7am. I spoke to all my neighbors and they were all good with it. They say this campground is for tent camping and such. However, over 60% of the people in the campground were in motorhomes with another 20% in travel trailers. They probably need to just update this park, move all the tent campers to the generator free area, and leave the motorhome & travel trailers free to do their thing. Don't think we would ever stay here again; it's just too crowed, missing all the basic services, and roads are too narrow with funky turns. There are other RV camping options just down the road in Tusayan that would have made our trip to the Grand Canyon a little more enjoyable.

This was a great park. Its really hard to beat and or complain about a $14/night campground. Everything was clean and nice, and the campground was well kept. Yes we did encounter some flies, but no more than you see at any other campground. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a City of Silverton owned park. This park is almost at top of continental divide at 10,515 ft. It has some of the prettiest most breath taking views you will ever see. We stayed here in July, and all the mountains surrounding the lake were covered with snow. The sites were all very nice and clean. Since there are no hook-ups, we ran our generator and filled up with water at the check-in station. All of the sites have a great view of the lake. The site we stayed in backed right up to the water, we were about 15' from the water. The temperature is very cool here being up in the mountains, one day the high was 53 degrees and we were here in July. I think some would consider this a primitive camp site, however I have stayed at worse camp sites with hook ups. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table, the sites are all covered with gravel with zero dust. We all road bikes, fished, and hiked. I highly recommend that if you are in the area, try to at least camp here one night, might be the most beautiful campsite you will ever stay at. The mountains reflect off the water, the air is crisp and clean, and the nights are silent and peaceful. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay here again. One word of caution, the rules say generator use from 8am to 8pm. We ran our generator earlier and later than those times without a problem. HOWEVER and this is a big HOWEVER, we have a very quiet Yamaha. I spoke with the guy who lives on site and runs the place, and he said no problem with this as our generator was so quiet. He did say that he does have a problem with those who have those loud contractor type generators. So if you have a loud generator, 8am-8pm. The guy who runs everything was a really nice guy, but I would not recommend pushing your luck with him either.

We stayed here for 2 nights and overall we really have no complaints. Kids loved the pool, views are awesome. Showers and restrooms were clean and nice. A couple of minor complaints. The Internet service was intermittent at best, when it did work, it was pretty slow. The roads inside the park are a very fine gravel. The kids hated riding their bikes on this gravel, and you got dirty walking back from showers. The sites are fairly small and narrow. This place was full when we stayed, and according to the staff, they stay full all summer. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

The park is the only one available in or near the downtown portion of Santa Fe if you are under the age of 55 or have children. This park is really in poor shape, the restrooms are clean, but old, with little or no shade trees in the park. There is no Wi-Fi available, while yes they have it, connecting and getting it to work once connected is another story. Most websites will time out before they ever load due to the super slow speed of the Wi-Fi. We would not stay here again, one is better off staying outside of Santa Fe and driving into town in lieu of staying here.

We stayed here one night and enjoyed our stay. Wi-Fi worked great, had 13M upload & 2M download, so not sure what more one could ask for in regards to Wi-Fi internet. Kids road bikes throughout the park, swam in the pool, and watched a movie in the theater. The park does have all dirt roads and sites without a lot of trees, but this seems to be the norm in the Santa Fe area. My oldest son said the showers were the best he has ever used. Not sure I would go that far, but they were certainly nice and clean. The only real negative that comes to mind is the interior roads seem very tight, we managed fine, but if you have a large rig, you may have to do some jockeying. We would certainly stay here again.

We really enjoyed this park. The park is a little bit of a trek to get to, and you drive through the little town/village of Villanueva which looks like a little town plucked out of Central America with run down houses and shanties. Once in the park: it's a beautiful little park, with the Pecos River running through it. The kids loved playing in the river, we also hiked to the top of the canyon which had great views. Kids road bikes through the park and meet several other kids who were staying in park. The other campers were nice and helpful. They clean the restrooms twice a day, and the showers had good hot water. Forget trying to get OTA TV service or cell service, as the park is located in the bottom of a canyon. We would stay here again. Yes, it does not have a ton of amenities, but its a State park and for $14 there is not much one can complain about.
