We would not recommend this park to anyone. We requested a 30 amp site but they said none was available so they would put us on a 50 amp site. This has happened in the past at other CGs and we were always charged the 30 amp rate and usually offered the loan of a 50 - 30 adapter if we needed one. Windmill insisted on charging the $3 per night premium for the 50 amp site even though we were not using 50 amps and the sites otherwise were identical. As other reviewers have mentioned, it may have been a nice park once but it needs lots of maintenance. A strange feature of the park is that it has no walls or fences and it opens into a rather run down neighborhood of old mobile homes. One morning an 18 wheel tanker drove thru the CG just two sites away from ours. The evening before, two junior-size 4 wheel ATVs driven by children looking to be 10 or under were racing up and down the camp roads and cutting through empty sites. The entrance is gravel/dirt and is so full of holes and bumps we had to carefully thread our way into the park to avoid wrecking something on our trailer. The park has a swimming pool which we looked forward to using after a day on the road in 90+ degree weather. However we were informed that the pool was closed because the water was so "yucky." They advertise WiFi - we were near the rear of the CG and were not able to even see a network let alone connect. All the sites we saw appeared to be the same size pull-thrus. We have a 30ft. travel trailer and we could not park in line with the trailer - the site was too short. On the plus side they do have some nice size shade trees between some of the sites and they are conveniently located for visiting Carlsbad Caverns which is why we stayed there. Ironically, in the material they hand out they encourage campers to submit a review about them to this site - we're sure they didn't have this kind in mind.

Park had pull-thru sites, but they were not long enough to park our tow vehicle in line with our TT and our TT is only 29.5'. We had to park next to the TT which eliminated any use of an awning or picnic table. Although temps were in the 90's, the swimming pool was closed. Park roads were gravel and could use some grading. Park was OK as a base while we went out sightseeing, etc, but it definitely is not a destination campground. Campground hosts, who also handled registration, were very nice and friendly.

They recently added a new section to the park. It is right on the river so we had a close-up view of the Mississippi. Our site was a long, level, paved concrete pull-through. Beautiful! The free WiFi was not really usable in the new section. We think they need to add another antenna in that area. One negative is the entrance road: it needs serious work! We have some pictures hanging on the wall in our trailer: driving down that road was the first time they ever fell off the wall.

We stayed at Oh Kay RV Park 9/24 - 9/27/07. We chose Oh Kay based on the recommendation of some members on RV.NET. It is not listed in the TL directory. We were looking for a place between Santa Fe and Taos to use as a base while we visited the area. We first felt something might be wrong when the clerk at the registration desk wrote a phone number on the receipt. She said it was the number of the police dispatcher in case we had any problems during our stay there. Then one of the long-term park residents came up to us while we were setting up and told us to make sure we parked our truck to make access to the gas tank difficult. "They like to take gas around here." This gave us a very uneasy feeling during our entire stay. The park itself is badly in need of maintenance. Some of the sites are so full of holes and ruts they are unusable. There apparently once was a playground but it is totally overgrown with weeds. There are some permanent residents and some of their units are complete eyesores. One in the next row from us has large sheets of rusted metal laying against the sides as wheel covers. Sites are supposed to be pull-through but they are only about 30 feet deep. Our TT is 29.5 ft. long and it filled the site. The only place to park the tow vehicle is next to the TT so we can't open the awning. We can't report on the bath house because they must keep it locked and require a $5 deposit for the key. We used our own facilities. To sum up, if it becomes a choice between Oh Kay and a WalMart parking lot, go for the WalMart!!
