We found this little park the last time we were in South Fork staying at another park. This park is funky but comfortable. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger parks. It’s very small and far enough off the road to be quiet. Most of the other parks in the area are situated right along the highway. The majority of RV sites are located behind the cabins. The interior road and sites are gravel. Water pressure was at 50 lbs., no problems with the power or sewer. Sites have a picnic table and are wide enough for all your slides and awning. Extra parking for boat trailers, tow dolly or vehicle trailers. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked well and we were able to get our dome satellite in. The parks Wi-Fi signal at the back of the park was weak and we were not able to connect. We had the very last site (#16) in the back of the park. It wasn’t quite level but we didn’t have any problems leveling our motorhome. We opened up to the views of the San Juan Natl. Forest and being at the end of the park you forget there are other people around. There’s a little gazebo with electricity for a get together and a group fire pit. (At this time there is a fire ban). The owners here have a cute little sandwich shop (located in the middle of the park) with outside dining. They use their own smoked meats and serve homemade Cole slaw and potato salad. They’ll even pack you a sack lunch if you let them know the night before. Bathhouse has one toilet and two showers. Although they smelled clean the shower grout needs to be scrubbed and bleached. We’ve never used the shower facilities in any park where we have stayed and to be truthful the bathhouse needs to be updated. The laundry room has 1 large capacity washer and 1 dryer. The price is a total of $2.00 to wash and dry. Each Friday there’s a farmers market in the Visitors Centers parking area located at the junction of Hwy 149 and Hwy 160. They feature local produce, baked goods, jewelry and other crafts. The nightly rate is $25.00. Site #16 is $28.00 with a private fire pit. We were charged $25.00 since there’s a fire ban right now. Weekly rates are $140.00 and monthly rates are $335.00 + electric. We didn’t see any mosquitoes while we were there. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
