Dumpy park with ugly metal corral style dividers between sites and overgrown with weeds and crowded. They benefit from being located on the east side of Wolf Creek Pass, a high altitude mountain pass. Anyone navigating the pass near dark is likely to take refuge here after nervously coming up the pass and approaching this small town. Price was somewhat good as compared to others, but literally nothing to do in this campground, no rec facilities, small store was closed when we got there, staff (older guy) wasn't too inviting. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park is conveniently located in the town of South Fork. It is a very basic park and from what we can tell, one of the better parks in the area. The roads and sites are gravel. Each site is separated by a corral-like metal fence. The sites are close together with tow vehicles and toads parked every which way on the roads since the spaces are too tight to park your vehicle in the site. There is a small rec hall that is open to all unless it is booked by a group staying in the park. Most of the people in the park are returnees from East Texas who stay for the summer and seem to know each other. However, they were all very welcoming to us and invited us to their weekly jam session and card nights. There are weekly pot lucks. Verizon aircard and phone worked well. There is are two bathrooms and two showers and were very clean. There were two washers and two dryers and were reasonably priced. WiFi is available but we didn’t use it. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. For what you get, I feel the cost of the campground was high but this is the going rate for the area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New owners have renamed the park "Alpine Trails RV Park". Young couple from Texas bought the place and are putting a lot of "sweat equity" and some money into it. Nice place to stay. Near the junction. Quiet and clean. Lots of regulars returning there. We extended our stay to explore the non-Pagosa Springs hot springs in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was recently sold (July 2009). The new owners have made many improvements in the past weeks, gone are the weeds! We have been staying here for the last 6 summers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here under Passport to save some money - not worth it. Although the people are very friendly, there is no atmosphere and the place is totally overgrown with weeds. This park needs some serious upkeep. We camped here in a Motorhome.
