This campground reopened under new owners in June of 2014. While the sites are very similar to years past, the service is much less than we expected. The campground is charging premium prices for the area, but the premium services are just not there. They do not tell you when making reservations that the cable system has been very degraded, and internet (also cable supplied) is mostly non-existent. We had to go into Red River several times to make the online payments and get email. Most important, they do not discount the prices for this lack of service, and do NOT tell you there is NO refund if you decide to leave early. If they would tell you these things in advance, it would be easier to accept these issues. When speaking with the campground staff, they were aware of the issue, but seemed to be unable to do anything about it due to the owner. I will be watching for next years updates to see if these issues have been resolved. It will be a major factor in deciding if we return again next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed our week stay. They have just recently reopened and have yet to join any of the discount programs and did not give a weekly rate. The WiFi was down for a couple of days, but worked well when it was up and running. Verizon 4G was also available on our modem. We found the cable channel selection adequate and were surprised that we were able to get satellite signal with all the trees and the steep mountains. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The cost was really the only downside for us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had stayed at this park years ago until it closed to short term campers. We were so glad to hear it had re-opened. Kudos to the new owners, they are doing a great job of customer service and park upkeep. We stayed here on Labor Day weekend with the park being pretty much full but they did a great job of managing the number of campers. Check in was very smooth. Departure from the park was managed very professionally with 3 people in the parking lot as we exited processing folks so we didn’t have to leave our vehicle (this was probably only a holiday weekend process). We stayed in the upper loop where fires are not allowed but that was ok with us. The upper loop has a little more elbow room between sites. Water and electric were consistent. We had a trailer with off-road toys which they provided a space for us to park it in (there was a small fee for the extra vehicle/trailer). The only reason for the 9 vs.10 rating was that the Wi-Fi needs some updating. This is the best park in town and we are already looking at next year’s calendar for a return visit! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, park with plenty of trees and shades. Be prepared to be stacked on top of each other! Very little space (maybe 8-10 feet) between camp sites. Not a lot of space to hang out. Felt like sardines. Restrooms were well maintained, cleaned and large. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
YEAH - Roadrunner is back! We used to stay here all the time, but the previous owner got harder to get along with each year. We quit coming because we refuse to pay money to be abused. The new owners are local business owners and have a customer is king approach to business. They reopened the part in June and are working hard to make it the best park in New Mexico. We had a site on the river that was perfect - good water, electric, cable (30 channels), and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi stayed up the whole time we were there and was reasonably fast. There is also a special "Adults Only" section for those that want it. Campfires and canopy's are permitted. All of the staff went out of their way to help us with anything we needed. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Roadrunner RV Resort has reopened as of June 1, 2014. New very nice owner (previous owner was a jerk) and extremely courteous park hosts. This park has a little of everything for everybody. Nice trees, beautiful flowing stream, and cool mountain air. All sites are full hookup with most sites 30 amp and a few 50 amp. We staying in August at the $900 monthly rate. I would have rated this park a 10 but for the weak Wi-Fi. The owners are working at this time to improve it. This is our favorite park and we already have reservations for next year. Love it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in site 33 which was considered a river site. Overall the park is very nice. However, it appears that tree trimming is needed - too many low branches and trees in the way. We also found that one of the desk help was a bit on the crabby side. Sadly we learned that the park is being changed to long term rentals next year, and it is doubtful that we would stay here for the 1-4 month periods that are being offered. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really like this RV park. We had 3 sites on the river and had a great trip. Unfortunately we found out when we arrived that this is our last time to be able to stay here because the 2012 season starts seasonal (4 months) or monthly rentals only (and no monthly sites are on the river! This information really put a damper on our stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV Park!! The park is very well maintained and the staff/camp hosts were awesome and very helpful! We definitely recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very unfriendly park. First of all, you have to make reservations by check, by mail. When we got to the park we had to shorten our stay by a few days but we still had to pay for the "reserved" dates. You cannot call in to change your dates because they must be done by mail. So, make sure you know them carved in stone before you send in your check. You cannot ride bikes in this park. I was threatened that they would call the police if I did not get off my bike and walk to my trailer. They are very rude. We will never stay here again! Buyer beware! There are other really nice parks in this area. This is a shame because this could be a really nice park: but the people make it terrible! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here for four nights and enjoyed the Red River running by our camp site. I had read some reviews about the staff being rude, but found the office staff friendly and that the attendants cared about their resort. I would have rated the park higher except for the bears. They would raid the dumpsters every night at 1:00am and then roam the camp sites. I know this is camping but being in tent trailer with bears walking under your bunk is a little scary. They need to move their dumpsters away from the camp sites to the back of the park. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The staff was very helpful and polite. The campground was very beautiful, very clean and well run. They have an adult section that does not allow bikes, which makes for a very quiet and enjoyable time. The campground has a security gate for added security. I plan on returning and highly recommend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a gated RV resort and they do have strict rules that they expect you to follow. You have to put up a $10.00 deposit for a gate key and a $10.00 deposit for a bathroom key that is refundable. They charge $1.00 per day per pet and we travel with two dogs, so that was added in. All said and done, the total for two nights was $124.00, $20.00 of which was refunded at checkout, so it is a rather pricey place to stay. That said, this is the quietest park we have stayed at in a long time. We were in a site parallel to the Red River that we caught trout from. There are lots of trees and lots of chipmunks. The showers were super large and very clean. If you are hauling four wheelers or off road vehicles, you have to park them in a separate area, for a charge of course, and they are very strict on not letting them be ridden in the park. We will return if in the Red River area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our family LOVES Red River, unfortunately this visit left us feeling like we had the screws put to us at Roadrunner. Roadrunner RV is a beautiful RV park that has fallen victim to the owners greed. We are a family of 3, we stayed in my in-laws fifth wheel, along with our niece. We were charged per person per day, charged for our dog per day, and for our truck per day. Our daughter is 5 and we paid the same for her as we did ourselves, they say "If it walks, it pays"! The attendants of the park are very rude and unfriendly. We don't feel like we should be waited on but do like it when people act as if they are glad to see you and happy to help you. They have found every way to charge you extra as they possibly can. At one point I asked to get a key for the restroom while looking around the park and was told that I needed to leave a $10 deposit! If you like being overcharged and treated poorly then you will enjoy your stay at Roadrunner, now for the other 98% of people who like being treated fairly, I recommend finding somewhere else to stay. We will return to Red River but not Roadrunner RV "Resort". We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very lovely, well maintained park. Campsite backed up to the river where my husband fished. There is a gate and gate keeper but we didn't mind that because it keeps traffic down. There were plenty of tall trees so it doesn't feel like a parking lot at all. Loved the showers! They are so clean. You get a key, plus the door locks behind you, so it is totally private. We really liked the place but thought it was pricey since it was just the two of us and our dog: the bill was over $100 for two nights. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. Sites are big. All the electrical hookups/water connections are in the right spot at the right height. Bathrooms are kept squeaky clean. Would recommend this to all travelers - young or old. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this park! We parked in a drive through site with our fifth-wheel on the upper level in the park. Nice trees, grass, views. Altitude is high so weather is great, cool even in August. Rules are very strict but keep them, and the camp host are very nice. Be aware they also do not give refunds so don't expect it. Still, a wonderful RV campground and can't wait to go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Many of the sites in this campground have space around them. Maintenance is very good and the campground is kept quite clean. There are quite a few rules, such as "no stakes in the ground" and the owner is sullen. But if you follow the rules it is a great place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been here several times before and it doesn't disappoint. Our site backed up to the stream was great. Park is well maintained and everything was great. We'll be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park with a very nice and friendly staff. We wished we could have stayed all summer. There is plenty of room between sites for awnings and slide outs. The site we had was level and from looking at other campers it looked like most were. We will definitely stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park with excellent upkeep and a very strict staff! I think you will either love it or hate it. They charge for everything but they are reasonable. $1 per day per dog; $10 refundable deposit for key to park security gate (refundable, so reasonable); $5 per day for extra vehicle(s); $10 deposit for key to public bathroom/showers (refundable, so reasonable). The staff is friendly but a stickler for the rules. You basically have to register everything. Your motorhome/travel trailer/vehicle/car hauler/pets/guests/use of public toilets. I called via cell phone for WiFi access code & they told me to walk to the office to get it?? Couldn't they have asked for license or other verification? Be ready for a helpful guide to meet you at the gate to take you via golf cart to your site. Be ready to verify and tag every dog, cat, car, trailer, axle, friend you come in with. And, be ready for a beautiful and serene park that is beautifully maintained with spaces that back up to the river if you choose. Each site has trees, picnic table, fire pit, BBQ grill, cable, full hook-ups. The park has tennis courts, bridges across river, playground, putting course, gift shop, cabins for rent, laundry, gated security and amazing views of mountain and river. I hope this helps! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is the newest in Red River but by far the most expensive. Price includes $6/day for car although we never moved our MDT and $1/day for our dog. I was not informed about the extra car charge until checking in. It was then too late to back out as there is a $75 non-refundable deposit already paid. They also charge $3/day for showers. We stayed in space 208 which is in the "Adult Area" but there is an ATV trail directly behind it that is used by a rental company so it isn't quiet here when the weather is nice. Most of the noise was on the weekend. It is a gated park and you must stop and use a card reader to open the gate. It was raining on several occasions and consequently got rain into the car while trying to get gate to open. Some sort of shelter would have been nice. They added a second WiFi antenna in the upper area of park and signal was good but installer said that 768k was as fast as system would work. Got slowed down at times. We will not stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I love this park. I've been there several times and always enjoy my stay. Yes, there is a non-refundable deposit and no allowances for changes but they are the best in Red River and I do not have a problem with that. Hosts are helpful and management was great. I love being backed up to the river and hearing the water go by. We'll be back again ASAP. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Best place in Red River. The river runs though the park. If you are old and cranky like me, ask for the 200+ sites in the Summer and you won't be near the kids, yelling, and ATV noise. Excellent place to stay and near 8,000 feet, extremely nice place to spend the hot weather months. Nice store, wifi in the store, friendly staff and they keep the park clean, neat, and enjoyable. First Class operation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a relatively nice park with the worst management I have ever encountered. The owners are rude and the camp hosts are very nasty. They charged me $3/day/guest over two and a $5/day parking fee for guest's car. I witnessed them shouting at other guests. They refused my request to change me to a different site although others were open. On the day my guests were to leave (catching a 7:30 pm flight) a camp host showed up at my site at 10:59am and informed my guest that he had to be out by 11:00am or pay for another day! I will never, never go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites we had on the river were very nice, but there are only a few spots on the water or with shade, so make sure you reserve the spot you want in advance. I recommend sites 92-96, if you do go there. The bathrooms were just "ok". There were no paper towels or soap, and the floors were usually muddy from other bathers. Also, only people in pop-up campers are supposed to get a key. Other members of our group who were in RV's were able get a bathroom key after begging. Why the poor rating and why we will never go back? The owners and staff were rude and stingy! Once you've paid your deposit they refuse to change your reservations. Members in our group tried to change reservations from 6 nights to 5 nights (they were in a cabin at $110 per night!) but were denied, even though they called a month before the check-in date. So they paid for 6 nights, but were only allowed to use the cabin for 5 nights! A staff member actually came over to our site and started yelling at us because we still had the cabin key (a cabin that was still paid for for one more day!) She upset my children very much. This is a pretty place (only if you get a waterfront site), but the staff is horrible! We found a much prettier place at Carson National Forest: Fawn Lakes Camp Grounds, in Red River, NM. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
There is no comparison between this park and any of the others in Red River. This is by far the best! We camped beside the river under large shade trees. It was delightful. Spaces were roomy. There is also a separate "adults only" area away from the river (no campfires allowed there) and a section of mobile homes that are kept very neat. The camp office/store is very attractive and the staff was most helpful and pleasant. They do require a non-refundable deposit, but we have found this in other RV parks as well. We'll definitely stay here again whenever we're in Red River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We visited some friends that were staying there and they had warned us about the owner, but then we meet a bunch of new friends while there, so each year we would just go back to see our good friends we had met, and each year, we would just put up with the Jerk that owned it. Now this year our friends have finally had it with him, and thank goodness we will not ever be going back. We are going to keep our friends we met up there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had stayed here in 2002 and really didn't have any complaints but when we went back in 2003 for a week, we couldn't do anything right. One of the Camp Hosts' was parked close to our site and we didn't get our trailer back in before they were out quoting the rules to us (We were there for almost the full week and never saw either of them smile). It wasn't just us either, they were on everyone in that part of the campground. We will never go back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Will have to agree with the other ratings: the owners of the campground are so indifferent. Sort of, "If you don't like it, go somewhere else." You have to send money to reserve a spot. The campground is overpriced and the people running the campground are unfriendly. They want to charge you for everything. I have stayed here for the first and last time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most unfriendly ownership I have ever encountered.On a recent visit owner tried to charge me for a
repair on his electrical hookup. Threatened to call the Town Marshal.Charged $50 for cancellation even though the reservations were reconfirmed the next day. Charged a
visitor $20 for parking her car for 3 days. Charged $3 per night for a child and $2 each for two dogs per night. We will never stay at this campground again.
