We planned on staying for a long weekend; we chose this place for their pool and convenience on I-10. We had called ahead and checked availability. Upon our arrival (12:30 pm on a Friday) the office was closed for "lunch". Taped to the office door had been after-hour instructions for new arrivals. We settled in to an open site and since it was 100 degrees outside, we got the kids dressed for the pool. While setting up, a fellow camper comes up to us and tells us the pool will be closing in the morning for some new paint, so, enjoy it while you can. I thought this must be a mistake??? What type of manager would close a pool on a weekend for resurfacing? When the office reopened after "lunch" we asked about the pool and it was confirmed it would be closed for the weekend. We complained (along with other guests). If we knew the pool would be closed, we would have kept going to a different CG. After many complaints, the management agreed to keep the pool open until 2 pm on Saturday. Too little too late for us. We only stayed one night. Now for the positives: Park was clean and well kept; roads were wide to drive thru and around. Water and electric worked fine. Cable was snowy. WiFi was excellent. Sites are a little tight for bigger units (we could not open our awning due to trees). Observatory is only open on even dates and you must sign up in advance.

We stayed here for 5 months (October 2013 thru March 2014). We had site #230. In this part of the "Resort", the sites are extremely close; but, are staggered (north, south, north, south, etc...). Nothing but gravel and dust. The Wi-Fi was spotty. Over the air TV channels were adequate. The pool was covered by a dome for most of our stay and it was refreshing. The hot tub was also adequate. They have a small gym. A very nice woodworking shop and my wife loved the stained glass class and hobby room. The staff we dealt with were wonderful! We can not say enough good things about the staff. The bathrooms and laundry were very clean as well; the cost to use the laundry was the cheapest we have found. Even though the facility is fenced in and there is a 24 hour gate attendant, our neighbor had his dual sport motorcycle stolen from his site. The police officer who responded to take the theft complaint alluded to other larcenies from the resort in the recent past (ATVs stolen). We would probably stay here again if passing thru Pahrump.

We stayed here as a guest (this is a membership type resort). We paid an extra $2 per day for their cable TV. We had a large corner site. The site was gravel, but the dust was kept to a minimum. The pools were extremely clean. Same for the hot tubs. The snack bar (located between the two main pools) had decent food for a reasonable price. Happy hour (from 3-6 pm each day) was awesome ($3 domestic draft beer pitchers - 64 ounces). Our children enjoyed the Kids Club. There is a beach along the Colorado River; however, the water was too cold for us to go swimming in it. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for six nights. The owner checked us in and was very nice. The sites are small; we stayed in the front of the park, by their storage row. Water (taste and pressure) was excellent. Their Wi-Fi was the strongest and fastest we have had in quite some time. The cable (which included HBO) was very poor in quality. The location of the park (395 & 50) was very convenient to stores and casinos. Due to this location, road noise was LOUD. It served our needs; but, I would probably not return - other options in the area.

This is a big state park facility. Stayed 2 nights. The spaces were tight for our 40' fifth wheel. Not very level either. Power and water pressure was fine (our two previous NM state park visits both had electrical issues). Rather long walk to the playground from our site. It is doubtful we would stay here again.

Planned on staying one week; however, the electricity was extremely low (I have a digital power management system). So, we only stayed one night. The park ranger attempted to correct the power issue; but, was not successful. The park itself was clean and rustic (desert surroundings). The playground was small, but adequate. If the power was more reliable, I would have given this park a higher rating. Would stay here again only if the power was functioning properly.

The lake is nice (saltwater). The campground was adequate; however, LOTS of flies. The electricity was questionable as well (my rigs power management system kept shutting off due to spikes and power drop offs). We stayed here for one week and it is highly doubtful we would return. Furthermore, the lake is a popular day use area by the locals. Even though the workers tried to keep things tidy, trash piled up quickly and was blown everywhere.

Very nice state park. We stayed here for one week. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The playground was more than adequate for our three kids. Due to its rather remote location, we had lots of starry nights. We also saw several different types of rabbits - some were HUGE! We also enjoyed the coyotes howling at night (probably trying to catch a rabbit or two). Would stay here again.

This is a relatively new campground; so, the shade trees and some of the landscaping have not yet matured. The guest lounge and and all public buildings were spotless. The games in the arcade were free during our visit - our kids loved that! The owners are very nice and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and properly set-up. The pool and hot tub were excellent, as well. Would definitely stay here again.

We spent two months here (February & March 2013). We had site # 103, which is located at the front of the park, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The owners do everything humanly possible to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. During Mardi Gras, they set-up an RV and BBQ grill along the parade route (11 miles from the campground) and fed everyone from the resort for free (tips appreciated). On Wednesday of each week, one of the owners takes people shopping nearby; so, if you do not have a toad, you can still get into town for groceries (again, no charge ~ tips appreciated). Also, twice a week they serve breakfast (Wed & Sat mornings) for a nominal fee. Pot-luck is on Thursdays and is enjoyed by many. They have a communal fire pit that they sometimes host a hotdog and smores event (no charge). Plenty of other activities are scheduled (jewelry making classes; RV related seminars; swap meet; etc...) The beach across the street is within walking distance; also, you can drive your vehicle on the beach in designated areas. The fishing was great (our group caught plenty of whiting; pompano; catfish and an occasional drum). The campground boasts two pools and a hot-tub. One pool is heated at the beginning of Spring Break; the other has a swim-up bar for the adults (this feature was not open during our stay). The laundry was efficient. The bathrooms were clean. Cost of propane was a little steep in my opinion ($26 for a 30 pound tank); but, it is the "only game in town" for propane. Overall, this is a wonderful resort. You are not "nickeled and dimed"; you can wash your RV for free. Electric was included in our monthly rate of $545 (taxes included). I would have given this resort a 10 rating; however, we did find large sections of the grounds needed attention. Mounds of turf and excess concrete in piles around the perimeter. As well as some junky bicycles and other like items in the weeds. In our opinion, this detracts from the overall ambience. It should be noted, that the owners just completed a major overhaul of the park and most of this debris is from those upgrades. We hope that this gets straightened out sooner, rather than later. WITHOUT HESITATION, WE WILL RETURN!

We stayed here for one month, January of 2013. This just happened to be one of the wettest January's on record. It was also a month filled with tornadoes and a night or two with snow in the forecast. With this being said, the RV park was wonderful! The park is situated with a nice foot-path on three sides of their lake. Cement pads are level and approximately 20' wide and have varying lengths. We stayed in site #105, which is a back-in space that abuts one of the "pet areas". Trash was regularly picked up by staff; the office had available, complimentary, fresh brewed coffee. As mentioned, we received many inches of rain and the grounds drained very well. I also made note that they had some of the best potable water we have encountered on the road. Although the campground is cable free, many of our neighbors had satellite and our over-the-air reception from Baton Rouge and New Orleans was clear and offered many channels. They also have a "Campers' Lounge" that has satellite TV and is quite comfortable. The laundry facilities were also clean and adequate. I gave this park a rating of 8, due mostly to their location. Not much going on in Livingston and the next place to grocery shop (Walker) was not much better. All in all, we would definitely return. Staff was great and if the pool was heated in the winter months they would have received a 9+).

We stayed here for one month in a full hook-up site. We paid $525, which included 50 amp service and 30 days worth of Wi-Fi. The site we had (R-28) was a wide, corner site having some palm trees. It took some maneuvering to get our 40+' fifth wheel in, but, we managed. This park is 90% manufactured homes and/or trailers converted into homes (i.e. carports; sheds; residential AC units; etc). Some lots are kept up better than others. The transient sites are scattered throughout the park; the bulk of them being in front near the entrance. They have two pools (one which was heated to 80+ degrees). The laundry facilities were dated; but, adequate. The interior roads are level and paved (everyone uses golf carts to get around). We encountered many friendly people (most of whom were over 60). Would stay here again.

Sites are level and long enough. Although, our site (#20) was narrower than most. They have a maintenance person; however, lots of brush/branches litter the grounds. The mini-golf area is rundown and falling apart. It is an eyesore that is very near the front of the CG. Pool was heated (as advertised). Our kids enjoyed the playground. Laundry facilities are very good and efficient (you can dry two wash-loads in one dryer). The Wi-Fi is weak (as was our Verizon 3G hotspot and phone signal). The staff is friendly and courteous. We stayed here for over one week, and, under the right circumstances, we would return.

We stayed here as a seasonal during the summer of 2012. I would gladly give this place a 10 + review. Their staff are extremely helpful and very courteous. The bathrooms and shower areas were very clean and attended to on a regular basis. The grass areas were cut and trimmed weekly. We stayed in site 241 (which is on a dead end, up a good sized hill). They offer lots of activities for both the adults and kids. The resort has a heated outdoor pool and hot-tub. Our only gripe with this place is the lack of supervision in the pool area; too often children would play in the hot-tub even though the posted signs stated under 16 not allowed. We would definitely stay here again.

Very basic CG. As stated in other reviews, the Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We were assigned site A3 (a "premium pull-through" site) and it was plenty long enough and relatively level for our set-up (which is 59+'); however, it is very narrow. This site is also near their water-treatment center and the pump/motor was working all day and night for the two days we stayed here. Plus, the smell from the open water pits in this treatment area is putrid. There was an over flowing dumpster nearby as well. Most of the campers here appear to be area workers and speed in and out of the campground in their work trucks. We will not return here.

Very tight getting in and out of our site (#2); we have a 40' fifth wheel with 4 slides. After some jockeying back and forth, got the rig parked so I could open all slides (no awning) and avoid the trees. Needed neighbors to vacate first to exit the park. If I had another site (one that was more forgiving), I would have given this park a higher score.
