This was a nice surprise in a great location. Although all sites were gravel, it as great for the price. Just across the Arkansas River from Heifer, International, The Clinton Presidential Library, a large park, and great restaurants (The Flying Fish had the best catfish we'd ever eaten). We found the area safe and nice for walking to local sites. This is owned by the City of Little Rock, and we have grown quite fond of the small, municipal RV parks. There were no frills here, but we don't need them and don't like to pay for what we don't use. The price reflects Passport America rate.

There weren't many options available in this area. We chose this as it seemed near the interstate. We got there near dusk and had a very difficult time finding the place and once there had difficulty figuring out the sites available. Once parked, it was a muddy mess. The owner was friendly enough but we'd rather park at Wal-Mart than be in this mess, once a mobile home park in process of converting to RV park.

This was such a lovely place, despite the 2-3" of snow on the ground. We stayed two nights to avoid traveling in a snowstorm and what a nice respite it was. The owners/staff were friendly, the office sold jams and jellies that were delicious. Everything was nice and neat and we had no complaints at all. Would definitely stay here again.

This park that confirms my opinion that KOAs, are, on the whole, not worth the money paid to stay there. We arrived on a day when it had snowed days before and thawed, snowed, and thawed, and snowed. It was a muddy mess, slippery, and scary to walk around in. We were going to be in the area several days but left the next morning to find better accommodations. We would not stay here again.

We stayed here as part of Amazon's "Camperforce" program. Although Wi-Fi was available, it was very slow. We ended up getting Wi-Fi and TV through the local Cox Communications. The owner was friendly, laundry and showers clean. Our needs were taken care of in a friendly and efficient manner. This is the only place in Coffeyville within walking distance of restaurants and stores. We would stay here again. Our site was paid for by Amazon.

Although we were told this was in a "bad" part of town, we felt perfectly safe here. As others have stated, the sites are rather close together. However, most have a privacy divider between the sites and there is a lovely greenbelt with abundant picnic tables behind the sites--very parklike. Just lovely. We had Tulsa-area acquaintances meet us here and they were pleasantly surprised. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

What a little oasis just off I-40!! This city park is adjacent to the golf course and it couldn't have been nicer. It's far enough off the interstate to be very quiet and the view of the lush, green fields made our stay very pleasant. The price was a bargain! The swimming pool is only seasonal and was closed when we were there, but there is a fishing pond and playground in the city park compound as well as walking trails. Each site had a picnic table and everything was neat and tidy. Although there are no sewer hookups, there is a free dump site. We just stayed one night as we were passing through the area, but this RV park could very easily be a destination park in the summer and early fall. We would stay here again.

Can you say full hookups for FREE? This small area just adjacent to the parking lot of the Lucky Star Casino has water/electric/sewer for no cost. They ask you to limit your stay to 3-4 days, and that's more than reasonable. They assume you will spend money at the Casino. Maintenance and security staff were very friendly and since we stayed there only a few months after the deadly tornado in adjacent El Reno, they told us if a tornado warning was in effect they'd come and knock on our door so we could go to the safer area in the Casino itself for shelter. The spaces are VERY close together but the fifth wheeler next to was able use it's pull out. No room for our awning though, but enough room for a few chairs. The parking lot lights were a bit bright and there was some highway noise, but nothing jarring. And definitely worth the drive about seven miles north of El Reno/I-40 to stay either overnight or for a few days. We would definitely stay again. Get there early in the afternoon to assure yourself a spot!!

This was a strange park. Although fairly new, it is on the site of a former mobile home park and is on the main road in town, walking distance from restaurants, grocery store, and a mall. Pros: Walking distance from areas stated above. Clean showers, laundry, and rest rooms. Cable TV service included Friendly maintenance staff. Cons: Flies, flies, flies!!! Cicada's very loud. Beautiful new clubhouse only open during business hours (four hours a day). If you need to stay an extra week or so, you pay full rate plus metered electric. They only take credit cards; no cash or checks. Advertised "free" Wi-Fi did not reach throughout the park, so if you want a shady area (and it was 90 degrees in the day all during our stay), you will have to purchase your own Wi-Fi if this is important to you. Fortunately we found a neighbor who gave us his password. No AT&T service for phone or mobile Wi-Fi No shelter when tornado sirens sounded and office staff had no idea of a place to go to. Motorhome sunk a full 10 inches into the ground after a heavy rainfall and had to be pulled out. Price reflects the average for a 40-day stay; one month at the monthly 30-amp rate (included electric) then 10 days at full price and metered electric. We wouldn't stay here at this time of year ever again with the heat, flies, lack of storm shelter, mud, and lack of Wi-Fi.

There's nothing fancy here, but definitely adequate for an overnight stay. The town of Tucumcari itself is interesting and worthwhile to see the remnants of the Route 66 heyday. Our site was fine, but we were not able to get AT&T phone service or Wi-Fi. We did not use any of the facilities. Personnel were friendly. We'd stay here overnight if again in the area.

This campground is located about five miles from Taos Plaza in Taos Canyon. And although it is surrounded by trees, it is old and derelict. There is a “lodge” In an A-frame but these rooms are uninhabitable. A brief walk around the park finds run-down older RVs and trailers, about an acre of just junk, and a lot of dangerous material sitting around. The junk on the opposite side of the road is also owned by Sierra Village and is inhabited by several permanent residents. There is a laundry, also derelict --and expensive -- $2 a load to wash and $1.00 to dry – but most of the time one needs to run their load through twice. There are a couple larger washers at $3 a load but permission is needed to use them. There are supposed to be two showers in the laundry area but one does not work. There is a shower/bathroom building with four semi-outdoor showers but only two or three are usable – watch out for the brown recluse spiders. The toilets? Some may work sometimes. There is no cell phone service whatsoever and no satellite reception. The free WiFi is very slow. Being without phone service, we attempted a VOI (voice over internet) app, but the strength (or lack of it) of the WiFi rendered this an exercise in futility. The sites themselves are small and the owner will put your rig in the smallest possible space. We watched on numerous occasions as larger rigs jockeyed around barely able to fit in the site assigned. Each site is supposed to have a picnic table, but they are of variable quality, unpainted and fraught with dry rot. And this isn’t the worst of the campground’s problems. Electrical service at your site may or may not work or may be just work part time. Brown outs and complete failure were common. The website says there are nature trails, but several people complained of not being able to find them. When one work camper went up to where he thought there was a trail, he found an abandoned party area with beer bottles, food wrappers, and signs of a campfire (during a fire ban). Due to the drought, there is no water running in the advertised stream (Rio Fernando de Taos). I’d give this campground a zero, except for the presence of lovely hummingbirds – dozens of them!! Many campers had hummingbird feeders for their enjoyment. Just remember to put away the feeders at night, as not to attract the campground bear.

This is a little piece of Heaven!!!! By far the nicest forest service campground we've ever encountered. Wide access roads - all blacktop as well as blacktop parking aprons. The campsites in the lower section, around the circle to the left as you enter, have beautiful concrete patios on which are a picnic table, grill, and fire pit. It was peaceful and the noise of the gurgling stream was louder than that of the road. The vaulted toilets were spotlessly clean and the camp host set out fabric softener sheets in the vents to keep it smelling nice and cut down on the flies. We stayed here four nights and although there were no hookups, potable water is available to fill up your containers of any sort including the motor home water tank. Also, you are able to drain your gray water into the treed area alongside the site. The campsites were large and private. Our AT&T 3G service worked great. Fire wood is available at $6 a bunch; kindling is free. We did not experience the problems with flies as one other reviewer detailed. We would love to stay here again and may make it a destination some time in the future.

After much of the last six months spent at RV parks with gravel/dirt sites, this was like a breath of fresh air. Shaded by plenty of trees, this grassy park is just a lovely place to spend some time. RVers should know right off that there was nearly two miles of washboard-rutted dirt road, not very dusty, and fine if you go very slow. Any rigs longer than 35 feet might have trouble maneuvering the turns and hill. There are about 30 sites, four of them with concrete slabs. All have electric 20/30 and some sites have water available but most are on the opposite side from the electric hookup. Most sites have picnic tables and firepits. There is a volleyball court and a large covered picnic area. The bathrooms and showers are basic, but clean. The camp host makes it his job to see that everyone is welcome and comfortable. Even though the train is about 100 feet away, it is up an incline and can hardly be heard. There is no traffic noise. We would definitely stay here again if in the area, maybe for a longer period next time. There is a fishing pond about 1/4 mile from the camping area and it is well stocked with bass and catfish. A Kansas fishing license is required. It's a wonderful place for pets as well. The gate to the park is locked at 10:00PM and unlocked at 7:00AM. There is limit of 14 days at a time.

This is a nice, very clean park. There are 38 sites, 30 extra-large pull through sites for $25/night ($20 a night if you're staying a week or more). There are 8 back-in sites that cost less, but with metered electric. There are no frills here, just a nice comfortable place to spend a couple nights. The showers are big and the water is hot. Nice laundry facilities ($1.50/load)and a hot tub. AT&T phones worked great as did the park WiFi (it was down one day and as soon as we reported the problem it wax fixed). There is no on-site manager/owner. Instead, you chose your own site and about 5:00 PM the owner/manager comes and collects. One negative was we were not allowed to set up our dog exercise pen outside the RV. This is the first park we have been to that wouldn't allow this. As it was it was so windy and hot, we couldn't be outside anyway, but it's worth mentioning. Their "book exchange" was really just about a dozen books, most looked at least 10 years old. There was no real "club house" per se so no TV or exercise equipment. It is the best place in Liberal to spend a night and get off the highway. The trains run about every hour, day and night, and the horn is loud, but it didn't bother us. We would stay here again if in the area. The price we paid reflects a one-week stay.

Although I guess I have to rate it as a "2" as there are amenities like laundry, showers, and WiFi, I am very reluctantly doing so. This is a derelict park with old mobile homes and RVs along with just a few newer models. We have a vintage RV so I am usually pretty liberal with my judgement of RVs, but this place was just ridiculous. I had called the day before and was told they had a space available and she'd mark it with a orange flag. When we arrived no one was in the office and neither of the two sites available had an orange flag on it. So we first chose a site in the back with a nice shade tree but found it full of broken windshield glass. The second site was unlevel and our 28 foot rig jutted out into the dusty roadway. Some sites had very old picnic tables in dire need of repair. I guess kids would be welcome, but I wouldn't let them out of the rig. Just too darned dangerous. There are some things I could forgive, but garbage lying around was just not acceptable. There was a train track just across the street but that didn't bother me as I like trains. It was loud though, and that might put others off. This park was built in the mid 1960s by the parents of the current. It was a hot mess and I would never return. I'd rather dry camp in the Walmart parking lot. After we started hooking up, we could see this was not a safe place to be for us or our three small dogs. We left to find a more suitable park, and we are really not that fussy.

We needed a place to overnight for laundry facilities and dump site. This fit the bill perfectly. The host/owner was very friendly and helpful. The laundry room although clean, was not finished and had a few hanging wires. We were not bothered by road noise, but we were the furthest rig from the road. Our mobile AT&T WiFi and cell phones worked fine. There was a lovely little building with the words "Got Books?" on a sign outside, which was set aside for a book/magazine exchange. There was an exercise room and a TV room, but the equipment older. The rate we paid reflects Passport America/Escapees rate. He also gives discounts to veterans and senior citizens. We would camp here again if in the area.

This was a very nice surprise, and we just accidentally came upon it. The City of Dumas has made this park available at no charge to travelers passing through. Although the website says "water" it didn't work. But, the price sure is right! You can make a donation if you'd like. The sites are all pull-through. There is nothing fancy here. It's adjacent to the city park and the sites are all on an asphalt parking lot. There are picnic areas in the park as well as BBQs and a playground for the kids. There is a sheltered picnic area as well. Our AT&T cell phones and mobile WiFi worked great. You are right next to the railroad tracks, but it hasn't bothered us at all, in fact the area was rather quiet. There is a dump site located on the east side of the parking lot next to a dumpster for your trash. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area. We talked to another camper nearby and he's been coming here at least once a year for the last eight years. I downgraded my rating to an "8" as there was no water available.

This was a small park, but perfect for our needs. There are many long term residents, so be sure to call ahead for availability. The best space is #11, where we were, as it is very private. There were grassy areas and picnic tables at each site. We were able to put up an exercise pen for our three small dogs on the grassy area and there was plenty of room. The campground WiFi worked great as did our AT&T cell phones. There was a nice clubhouse with TV, book/DVD exchange/loan (including DVDs of recently released movies), kid's toys, laundry and showers. Everything was clean. There was no extra charge for the showers and the the laundry (which we did not use)were very clean. They had a small snack bar,on the honor system. We had a friend in the area meet us there and it was just the perfect place to visit. We heard to road noise at all. The rate we paid reflects a 15% Escapees discount. The owner who lives in an adjacent home, was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night, but it's nice enough to spend a week or more here. We'd definitely stay again if we're in the area.

This is a small, friendly park, out of the way from the other parks on Pine St in downtown Deming. When we arrived the helpful, friendly camp hosts were waiting for us at the gate and escorted us to our spot. We were given a packet of info of the Deming area, a nice pen, and the password for the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi worked wonderfully the entire time we stayed here. I work as an editor out of our RV so to have reliable internet access was very important. There was a nice picnic table at each site. At first I was disappointed that we were parked in the "short term" pull-through RV sites in the gravel area before the main campground and clubhouse. But I quickly discovered this area was just as nice as it could be with very friendly neighbors (permanent residents). The clubhouse was adequate with TV, videos, and a book exchange. Although we were just off the freeway we could barely hear the traffic or the trains just on the other side of the freeway. Other reviewers have mentioned the 2-1/2 miles of dirt road to get to the campsite. This can be avoided by driving to Deming and coming in from the west. By using this route you only have less than half a mile of dirt road and even on windy days it wasn't a problem. We did have a lot of wind while here, but that's to be expected in March and April. Several days it was so bad we stayed in the RV all day. The park is pet friendly and they let us use the exercise pen for our small dogs. We would be happy to stay here again if in the area. The price reflects a month stay as Passport America members. They also offer Escapee and Happy Camper discounts.

The posted rate reflects the Passport America discount which is good for two nights. A monthly stay is $125 + electricity ($100 deposit). This little campground is away from the train and freeway noise one deals with at most of the Deming RV parks. It is located 15 miles north of Deming itself, and there is a 1.8 mile very washboard-rutted gravel/dirt road leading to the park. First the good: All sites are pull through and shaded by mulberry trees in season. There is a lovely clubhouse with cable TV, pool table, kitchen area, laundry, book and DVD exchange, and the nicest shower/restroom combination we've ever encountered. The laundry room is an "honor" system. $1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry. You pay when you leave. The surrounding countryside is very rural/ranch land, including cattle next door. If you have horses you are able to corral them here. Friendly and helpful owners. The stars at night are incredible. It is also very pet friendly. The bad: It gets very windy here, so bad that you aren't able to be outside your rig or the clubhouse for any amount of time. Gusts rocked our rig many, many times. Our internet access and cell phone service with AT&T was spotty to non-existent. That said, we'd probably return if we were in the area again; when, hopefully when it is less windy.

This is a nice park off I-5. The spaces are grassy but fairly small. Laundry facilities were nice and the showers would rate a 9/10. Really it just had the basics and nothing fancy but very clean. The park is within walking distance to a 6-7 restaurants. Freeway noise but not too horribly loud. Would recommend as a nice place to spend a night when you are driving I-5. Price reflects Passport America discount.

Small park in close proximity to I-5 and several restaurants. Facilities were adequate but nothing special. Views of Mount Shasta were incredible. Good for a stay of a day or two. There was freeway noise but it wasn't that big a deal. The price reflects the Passport America rate.

Oh my, where to begin. The only reason we chose this park was we were in the general vicinity and had already had a long day drive. This park was about 10 miles off the highway and it had been raining for several days. First complaint was having to pay $2 each for small dogs that weren't even going to leave our motor home. The second, and main reason for the low rating was that this was a mud pit. And I do mean mud pit. The fall rains rendered this campground pretty much unusable. Just hooking up the water and power was a chore due to the slippery mud. We could hardly wait to leave at daybreak. We would never stay again. The only positive thing was it was near the lovely 18th Century Mission San Antonio de Padua, which was certainly worth the drive to tour.

This park, remotely located in the southern Coachella Valley, 30 miles south of Palm Springs, is a most wonderful place to stay. We had found info online and had intended to stay only two stays, then decided to stay the week, but ended up staying a month. This RV Park has it all, and for a very reasonably nightly rate, especially for Passport America members. Green grass abounds as do many citrus trees (orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine) as the park was build in the middle of an citrus orchard. The fruit is free for the picking and we enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice every morning during our stay. From the morning coffee and pastries (homemade by our host, Ann), to the afternoon happy hour arund the fire pit, this park was friendly and accommodating. On Valentine’s Day we were treated to a wonderful poolside barbeque and putt-putt boat races (that clearly proves you can’t take the boy out of the man). The public areas (pool, hot tub, showers, clubhouse, rest rooms) were very clean and the entire park was kept clean and tidy. Instead of the usual desert RV park with sites on dirt/sand, beautiful green grass surrounded the sites. The park was pet friendly and everyone picked up after their dogs. The clubhouse contained a nice book swap area, game tables, and cable TV. There was also a weekly poker game. The evening happy hour enabled everyone to get to know one another and we found many RVers have come back year after year and stay the entire winter season. The partial hookups (E/W) were in a grassy area and some need a wee bit of leveling. The FHUs are on concrete slabs. There are also sites around the lovely pond area. Most sites had their own orange tree. You could literally put your hand out the window and pick the sweetest oranges I’ve ever tasted. There is a dump site on the premises and an LP truck will fill your tank with a quick phone call. The only negatives, and they would not be a factor in us returning, was the Wi-Fi being down for a few days and the road noise. Oasis Palms is right by busy highway 86, and with trucks traveling this road day and night, some might be put off by the noise. We weren’t. The positives so outweigh the negatives here. The price we paid reflects the partial hookup Passport America rate.

Very nice level sites. Very clean. Pet friendly. Pool was drained - when it is operating it costs $2/session. Coin-operated showers were just OK. Friendly staff.

Not a good value at all. Self check in very early. No help other than a hard to read map. No septic available. Noisy at times.

We stayed here for six weeks and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly and very clean. About 70% of spaces are permanent campers. It was very quiet. Propane available on site. Our monthly rate was $400. We aren't towing a vehicle and the only negative thing was that it's a two-mile walk to the grocery store. That said, we had plenty of offers for rides.
