We stopped here overnight on the way south. Our rate was PA rate. Very easy to get in/out as directly adjacent to I-95. Check in quick and easy. All sites are paved pull throughs. Park is very well maintained and clean, and staff is professional and helpful. Jet noise from airport is intermittent, but the park is right under the final approach to JAX airport. We would stay here again.

We stayed in the newer Timothy Lake South section. The park is several miles off hwy US 209 down a very hilly and curvy road with very few sighs. Don't despair, you will eventually get there. Staff was friendly and helpful and check in was easy, pick a site and come back to pay. We had pull through with 50 amp full hook ups. All worked fine and were easy to connect. Nice pool (we didn't use). However this place is expensive. The rate shown is PA rate. They add a $3 "resort fee". If you want cable TV, thats $4 per day extra. If you want Wifi, thats $5 per day extra which we chose not to get since we were only here overnight. Next time I will look elsewhere in the area.

This is a huge park with lots of top notch amenities. We had a pull-through 50 amp full hookup site. It was easy to get in/out and utilities worked well. This place has 4 swimming pools with one indoor, and a very large meeting facility that would be great for rally groups or special events. You are paying for the amenities (which we didn't use) and location (easy access to Boston, Cape Cod, Newport RI, etc.). However, the place has all gravel interior roads which are very dusty and even more so due to the fact that no one followed the park speed limit driving by very fast in a cloud of dust. Depending on what we want to be near, I may look for a quieter place next time.

We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The CG is located on Mt. Desert Island about 4 miles or so from the town of Bar Harbor, and a couple of miles from the entrance to Acadia NP. This is a very large and older campground. We chose a larger pull through site on a hill, and had a little difficulty leveling. Ours was 50 amp FHU and were pleased with the service. Laundry room was clean an inexpensive. Lobster Pound across the street or back toward Trenton a few miles (yum!) Water front doesn't mean water access in this case. While you can see the water from some of the sites and the pool/playground area, it's not accessible, but a very nice view either way. We will try to stay here again next time we are in the Acadia area.

Nice park located within easy walking distance of Old Orchard Beach pier and boardwalk, yet far enough back that it was quiet and away from all the beach activities. Lots of seasonals there. Nice & clean. Called ahead for reservation and told to just come on in..was off season and plenty of spaces were available. We were in the back section which is newer. Level and plenty of room on our back in site. The pull throughs are limited and were full. Hook ups easy and worked well. Access road through the park a bit narrow but the CG escorted us to the site. Didn't use WiFi or the bath houses. Next time in this area we will probably stay here again due to its easy beach access and it looked nicer than the others we passed.

This appears to be an older park that has had some upgrades as it is now affiliated with NASCAR. Its about 5 or 6 miles from I-81, and use exit 257 unless you want to drive through downtown New Market and make tight turns. We called ahead for reservation with no problems. The camp host met us at the office as it had closed when we arrived, and escorted us to our site. Sites are on the hillside (this is the mountains) and were not very level, though we did manage. We had a pull through 50 amp FHU site. Utilities were easy to use and worked well. Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon signal was strong. I would stay here again. Rate shown is PA rate.

Very good overnight stop. Very easy in/out access. Facility is very clean and staff very friendly and accommodating. Reservation process extremely easy. Park office was closed when we arrived but we were given a site assignment on the phone when we called to reserve. We had no problem getting into the park to our assigned site. Updated power/cable/water pedestals made the connections easy. Though we didn't walk through the rest of the park, it looks as if the sites on the road front - all pull throughs - are the overnight spots and the remainder of the park is park models or permanent residents. Road noise was noticeable but not really an issue. Very good choice for in/out over night in this area. Will definitely keep this on the list for another trip. Rate is PA rate.

Rate shown is PA rate. We originally were booked for 2 nights but enjoyed it and stayed another day as an extended stop on our way home from Texas. Nice facility, plenty of spacious pull through sites, easy full hookups with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Staff very friendly and answered all our questions about the area, and escorted us to site, then came back by later to ensure all was OK. All roads and sites are gravel with nice plants and foliage to provide some privacy between sites. There is a cafe/bar at the park with live music on weekends, and big screen TVs for watching ball games. The park is on a major waterway near the south side of Lake Ponchartrain. It is expanding and not yet to full capacity. The picture on their website is an artist rendering, not a real picture, but they are getting there. They have houseboats and cabins for rent, a marina with boat launch. Right across the canal is a bigger marina and a yacht yard. It is about a 15-20 minute drive to the French Quarter, and they also have a shuttle that is only $5. It is convenient to many very good restaurants in the Metairie area close by, and in New Orleans. We look forward to returning to this RV park next time we're in the area.

Used this as an overnight stop on I-75. Rate is PA rate. Very convenient to I-75 with easy access. Basic RV park with paved roads and gravel/grass sites. Our site was level. Friendly staff and easy check in. Easy full hookups with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Interior roads were a bit tight but no real problem. This is a very big park with lots of snowbirds and long term residents but it was very clean and well kept. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Rate is the campground rate. There is an additional vehicle entry fee of $8 per week. This is a Federal Park part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. It looks like a Florida State park because it was until 1971 when it became part of the NPS. We stayed in the A Loop. Paved roads, paved sites, most with trees and shade. Bath house is very old and needs updating. It was clean, but old. Each site has 50 amp electric and water. A Dump station is close and easily accessible. Parking is available for additional cars of boat trailers. This park is on the west end of Florida, on one of those beautiful white sand beaches that extend from St. George Island to FloraBama. Fort Pickens is a good historic tour with plenty of walking, biking, and beach to explore. Also convenient to restaurants and attractions in Pensacola Beach and Pensacola proper. We will definitely return to this park!

Rate shown is PA rate. We stayed here one night as as a stop over on the road. Very nice park with all the usual amenities. Friendly staff and easy hookups. All sites are concrete pull through sites. Lots of pavement with very easy access from I-10 and very easy access into and out of the park. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Free breakfast each morning in the clubhouse. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Rate shown is PA for 2 nights, 3rd night was standard rate of $40 with TACO discount. Beautiful park in a pecan grove on scenic Johnson Creek. All sites are concrete, most are very long pull throughs. Grass next to the concrete pad with picnic table. Easy hookups and good cable and Wi-Fi. Nice pool and lodge on top of the hill overlooking the creek. Creek access area too for wading/swimming. Lots of rules but nothing we couldn't abide by. They require pads or wooden blocks for your jacks on the concrete, but the office had plenty to lend if you don't carry them. Also no mats or rugs on the grass next to your RV. Tip: if you have one of the narrower sites, pull in as far left as you can so you have some room to step down on the concrete pad. They are working to make and keep this as a top notch RV park in the hill country. Near Kerrville and other places for sight seeing. We very much enjoyed our 3 days here and look forward to returning.

Nice park very conveniently located in the Bee Caves area about 20 minutes north of Dripping Springs. Quiet place on a hill, very clean and well run. Staff was always available and very busy keeping things cleaned and well maintained. Laundry room was very clean with new machines. We had a pull-through site on top of the hill near the laundry/bathroom building. Lots of full time residents, but all had clean sites and all we came in contact with were friendly. Good electric, water and easy sewer hook ups. No cable but were able to get all the Austin TV stations over the air with no problem. Convenient to shopping in Bee Caves area and tons of restaurants. Near Pedernales Falls state park and Hamilton Pools park. About an hour or so from Fredericksburg, and close to Austin. We used it as a base while visiting friends in Drippin and will likely stay here again on our next trip to the area. Access is best from Hwy 71 or Hwy 12 from the south. Hamilton Pool Road west of Hwy 12 gets very narrow and twisty and not very accessible for larger trailers or motorhomes.

This is a Texas state park on a lake. Nice facility in a relatively out of the way area. We only stayed one night as a stopover on the way to Austin as it was not too far out of our way. Nice facility with plenty to do if you are so inclined; kayak & canoe rentals, lake swimming, boat ramp. We were there on an off season week day and there was only one other camper in the park. Sites are old design,not very wide and a bit unlevel. We used one of the pull through spaces and it was very tight. Do NOT (as the ranger suggested) try to do the U-Turn at the end of the CG road with your toad still attached but unhook before you turn into the CG road. We made that mistake and had to unhook in mid turn so we could back up and continue the U-turn. There is a large parking area just past the CG turn that you can use for that purpose. Water/electric were fine, with dump station available on the way out. Beautiful quiet sunset and abundant wildlife on the lake.

Gravel roads, level sights for overnighters. Easy & friendly check in. Accommodating staff. Looked like about 10 or 12 sites reserved for short term/overnight guests. The remainder were long term. Very easy access to I-20. Park is an older park in an industrial area. Site was level and easy full hookup with cable. Talked to a couple of others that use this as a stopover each fall on the way south. Would not hesitate to stay here again as an overnight stop on the road. Rate shown is PA rate.

Rate is PA rate. This was an OK overnight stop. Park was a little difficult to find although it was only a mile or so off I-20; follow the signs not GPS. Check in was easy, staff friendly, escorted us to our site. Sites were a bit unlevel. We didn't use any of the facilities but all looked clean and nice. They seem to have a lot of local activities, kids parties, etc. When we were leaving, a school bus full of kids on a field trip came in. At PA rate an OK overnight stop, and would not hesitate to stop in here again when on the road.

We spend a long weekend at Cane Creek recently. This place is beautiful. Perfectly landscaped and maintained. Outstanding clubhouse & pool area. Lake swimming is also allowed as there is a ladder at the end of one of the docks. Sites are for sale, a number are already privately owned. Some have decks overlooking the lake. Owner/Developer is on site and is very helpful and accommodating. Boats and golf carts are available for rent. Only downside is there is no cable TV available and over the air TV was limited, but the sites are satellite friendly. Verizon coverage was also excellent. Groceries and restaurants are in Greenwood about 10-15 miles away.

This is a real bargain. All sites are paved with patios, picnic tables, full hookup with good cable and a nice trash receptacle. Security was on site. There is a shuttle that takes you to the casino. Sites are large and will accommodate big rigs. There is no on site office, you call the casino number posted at the park entrance and they assign your space. A trip into the casino is required to complete the registration process. Now the drawback - there were workers camped there that decided at 2:00 AM to blow off some steam. For 3 hours they fought, cursed, yelled, and generally kept everyone awake. Then started the same thing over again at 9:00 AM Saturday Morning. I called the casino to let them know and was promised a manager would call back. We never received a call. Turns the good value also costs us a sleepless night fearing that the fight would spill over onto our site.

This is a camping, RV parking area located within the state park. It is situated between the beach/dunes and the highway. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach access area which is also a day use area. There is some road noise. Sites are back to back sites. Each site has a picnic table on a partially covered pad. The entire area is one large paved parking area so there is plenty of room to maneuver your RV. We didn't see much of the park staff except during check in. They were very helpful and quick with the check in process. The dump station was easily accessible. We would stay here again if in the Corpus Christi area.

We stayed here a week using it as our base as we explored the surrounding Hill Country while visiting friends near Austin. This is a great little no-frills park with owner/hosts on site that do everything to take care of you. All sites are packed gravel with neat lawn areas and a picnic table. Sites are 50 amp with water and sewer, no cable. Wi-Fi was strong and flawless all week. There are also trails in the surrounding ranchland to walk. There is a small laundry facility, but no bathrooms as they require self contained units only. They also have propane on site. Nearby Dripping Springs has a grocery store, bank, and restaurants. Blanco is not far away either. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the area.

This was our third stay at Bluewater Key. What an awesome place. After you arrive you don't want to leave! Ann greets you at the gate and directs you to your site. She and the staff keep this place immaculate. This was the first time we had been here in mid-summer and were expecting the tropical heat. But on the waterfront sites, the continuous breeze kept things cool. It is only 14 miles from KW and all the action, plus, it is near the other Lower Keys with great fishing, eating, and chillin. The summer and fall rates are actually the same or even less than some of the other campgrounds in the area, but what difference the facility is! We can't wait to go back.

We used this as a stopover on the way to the Keys. We were pleasantly surprised. We arrived very late with no reservations, but found the self check-in very easy. A covered desk area at the front of the office provided pre-filled forms for several suggested sites allowing a selection of 30 or 50 amp sites. The place was very clean and well maintained. Sites are all pull throughs so we didn't even need to unhook the toad. Office staff was very friendly and helpful the next morning when we settled our account and checked out. This place is in a agricultural area completely surrounded by tropical plant farms for miles. At night the approach is very hard to see with a very small sign, and not many street lights in the area. It is a relatively easy drive from there through Homestead back onto US1 and the Keys. We will keep this place on our list to stop on the way to the Keys, or as a base for going to Miami.

This place is right on the beach seawall. All of the beach front sites are pull in sites so you are looking through your front windshield right into the ocean. Absolutely fantastic view of the Atlantic. Other than that, this campground would probably not be in business. We have never been in such tight quarters. When we pulled in our site, the trailer next to us was sent scrambling to get their stuff off of our site. With slides extended, we were only about 10-12 inches from the trailer on our left side. We were only there for one night so chose not to put out our awning. Good thing! It would have hit the awning from the trailer on the right side. After paying $80 plus tax I found that we needed a least a 30 foot sewer hose to connect. The connections are side by side at the front for a motor home. It was a little uncomfortable getting to the beach access. You had to walk through someone Else's site to get there. If we need to stay there again for a one-nighter, I would pick one of the newer sites across the street from the beach. They are much larger, plenty of room and easier to get in and out.

We stopped here on our way back from Florida for an overnight stay. This park is a small little family run place near the river and the navy base. It is several miles off the interstate. The owners are on site and very friendly and helpful. Our site was a little small, but it was a pull through and perfect for us for the night. We took an afternoon tour of St. Marys historic district and waterfront. We would stay there again.

This state park is on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever visited. Miles and miles of white sand for walking and relaxing. The facilities are fine for a remote park such as this, paved access roads but mostly sand in the campground area. Shaded sites throughout. We stayed in the Gulf Breezes campground and had a site nearly on the beach, just a short walk through the dunes access path. Bath/Shower facilities were very clean. The volunteer camp host were great. Wildlife is abundant including a huge Bald Eagle. This is a great park for biking, kyaking, fishing and swimming. It is rather isolated so bring major supplies with you. There are a couple of small stores within a few miles of the park, but no camp store of any kind. We had a great and very relaxing time.

This was a good spot to stay while touring some of the Delaware/Maryland/Virginia peninsula area. Chincoteague VA and Crisfield MD are easily reached from this location. It is several miles down a narrow road from HWY 13. The staff was friendly and helpful escorting us to our site. The CG is expanding and we stayed in one of the older sites in the wooded area. There is no cable TV hookup but fortunately we had a site open facing south so the satellite worked. The new area is in a large open area that is big rig friendly. There are a few sites near the water with only water/elect hookups, and 2 awesome sites right on the bay. WiFi is included at no extra fee and worked great. A number of seasonal and regular week-enders there, but all were friendly. They had a '50s "Sock Hop" on the Saturday night we were there that was attended by both young and old, with all having a good time. We would definitely stay there on another trip in this area.

This is a beautiful state park right on the Chesapeake Bay. However there are no water view or water front sites. The campground is just a short walk through a wooded area and across the dunes to a very nice beach. There are 3 boardwalks with stairs down to the beach with one being accessible for those with disabilities. This has to be one of the top state parks we have ever stayed in, with full hookup sites, trailers and cabins for rent. It has a large fishing pier, boat launch ramp, and miles of trails. They have a large bird banding program located there, we didn't have time to see it, which we were told is very interesting. They also have interpretive programs available. The main campground area is a big open area with sites in the open and some in the trees at one end and along one side. Those in the open can get a view to the south for satellite. They even have a laundry room with two washers and dryers. The beach is a wide white sand beach with great swimming but no surf since it is on the bay. There is a large breakwater several hundred yards off shore made up of old ships. The sunset over the bay was spectacular with the Bay Bridge Tunnel in the distance. We will definitely stay at this park again when in the area.

We used this park as a base for a week in Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. The staff was very friendly and helpful, check in was quick and our site was quickly assigned. We had made reservations with the usual one night deposit. The site was a pull through on the first row of sites. Road was a little dusty. All utilities worked perfectly including "cable" which is their version of DirecTV. We were in the trees so could not use the satellite. It was a 20 minute drive into the historic district to the Civil War Visitors Center down Route 60. This route is one of the main hwys into the historic district with lots of shopping and restaurants. All of the outlet malls and shops are along this road too. There is a good grocery store near by, and Wal-Mart not too far away. We were very pleased with our stay there and would stay there again.

Very nice spot in central SC. Not too far from Columbia. It is rather isolated with no stores and very few restaurants around so bring what you need. Big open area with campsites around the perimeter. Ponds for fishing and hiking trails. Pool with pavilion area. Ice Cream social on the Sunday night we were there. Very kid friendly. Many families there using the large open area in the center for ball games and playing. Playground equipment too. CG office has a very limited selection of camp supplies for sale. No grocery items. Ice and propane on site. Game room for the kids with big screen TV. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We would come back for another visit if we are in this area again

This is a very pretty park with large and very open sites. The roads in the park are all paved and wide with no tight turns that we noticed. We were in a 50 amp site which is not in the loop closest to the lake. I was not told that when we checked in, I think I would have preferred a 20 amp site and be closer to the lake. However there were so few campers here that we could see the lake from back where we were. We also didn't realize that there was no water hookups, but fortunately we had nearly a full tank. The beach area was very scenic, the bathhouses were clean but somewhat dated, typical of a State Park. Shower houses were separate from the other bathrooms with individual outside doors for each shower stall and dressing area. The park was well maintained. They also have cabins for rent on the lake front area that were full the weekend we were here. We were here during one of the last weekends the park is open for the season. There was a lot of water standing due to the very heavy rains that had occurred during the past several days. It was great for an overnight stop, and would be good for a day or two during warmer weather. All in all a nice place if you don't need full hookups.

This KOA is close to Niagara Falls and is north of Buffalo. It is out in a rural area, but very close to the parkway that goes to the falls. The owners were very helpful and provided us with information on touring the falls, shopping, and other local information. The cg is rather small making for some tight turns to get to some of the sites. We have a 32 foot motorhome and toad, and didn't have too much trouble getting into our pull through site. We did not inspect the showers or bathrooms. The place was well maintained with a small but well stocked camp store. No cable hookups which you would expect for the price, and the trees prevented usage of our satellite dish, but we did get the local news and weather from the local channels. All in all a nice little cg and we would consider it again if in the area.

This campground is only 2 miles from Stowe and about 5 miles from Waterbury, Ben & Jerrys, etc. It is a good base to explore all of northern and central Vermont. We found the staff brief and to the point, making for a speedy check-in. The cg is on an old farm making for a rather rustic but scenic setting. It is a very large and open area. The entire area is well maintained, grass neatly mowed with large green spaces and a large area for a kids playground. Roads and sites are gravel. The roads had a few potholes with standing water due to the recent heavy rains in the area. The sites have "back to back" utility hook ups, meaning that there is a pull-in/back-in side by side. The spaces are large so you don't feel crowded. We had a pull in site which gave us a beautiful view out our front window across a large meadow with the VT mountains in the distance. We did use the laundry room which is rather small with one washer and one dryer. Our experience here was a positive one and we would definitely stay here again if Stowe is our destination.

Twin Lakes is a large area primarily for long term seasonals - many park models and permanently set up trailers. They do have a few sites maybe 30 or so, that looked to be for overnight guests. The staff was not too helpful. On check in, the desk clerk pointed in the general direction of our site and gave us some verbal directions. No map, rules, brochures or anything else. We arrived at the site to find it completely covered with trash and debris from tropical storm Ernesto 2 weeks before. We went back to the office and notified the desk and were asked if we saw another site we liked and if so to take it... which we did. The site was nice though, and the place was quiet. Once past the rough introduction though we enjoyed our stay. Most sites in the seasonal areas were well maintained. If you have a boat this is the place to be. There is a lot of parking area for boat trailers and plenty of marina space with direct access to the bay and the Pamlico River. The one bathhouse was reasonably clean, and the pool was very nice. The store was stocked with the usual CG store items, and includes a game room with pool tables and a few video games. There is no cable tv hookup though and would expect it for that price. We didn't take the laptop, so I don't know if WiFi works or not. We would stay there again. It is very convenient to Washington, Bath, Pamilco River, Edenton and other historic places of interest in the area.

This was a great campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Security was thorough but not overbearing. All sites are paved with paved patios. We did not use the Wi-Fi so don't know how well it works. This campground is split by Hwy 12 with the largest part on the ocean side and about a third of the cg on the sound side. We stayed on the sound side in a premium site on the sound. Due to the reeds and foliage you cannot get to the water from there, but it did provide a beautiful sunset each night and more of a spacious feeling since nothing is behind you but the sound. The bath houses were absolutely spotless... maybe the cleanest and best maintained I have ever seen. The pool areas (indoor and outdoor) were very clean and very well maintained, and the clubhouse was spacious and nice. There is a pavilion on the beach with parking there so you can haul all your chairs, umbrellas, etc up there in the toad if you need to. There are also plenty of good restaurants nearby. Try the Top Dog down the street for a good laid-back, open-air kind of experience. The grilled mahi tacos were great! The only down side is the overall cost. Base price was 69$ plus 6 bucks each for our adult kids - both over 21 years old - that came with us this trip. Cable is another $3 per night but we use the dish. All in all it looked like the nicest RV park in the area and we would stay there again.

This park is a very clean well maintained park. We arrived late to find that our site was marked on the cg map and waiting for us. Many of the sites are very large pull throughs as was ours. The large site included 50amp service, water and sewer. The grass was well mowed on all sites, dog run, play ground etc. Some of the sites are back in sites, but many of those are paved with concrete pads or gravel. Large trees are throughout most of the campground so satellite may not work. The pool is small and at the front of the cg and a pretty good hike from most of the RV sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I did check out the bath houses and both were very clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful little park located right on Halls River in the middle of manatee country. The campground staff were very friendly and helpful. The facility is layed out well, with the riverfront, a small lagoon in the center of the cg area. The sites near or on the river looked to be mostly long term. We stayed in one of the a couple of hundred yards from the river front, but it is a very easy and pleasant walk down to the marina and the grille. There is a large clubhouse with many activities such pot luck supper and ice cream socials. The marina has pontoon boats and other fishing boats for rent. The "permanent" sites with park model trailers, is in an area that is somewhat isolated from the main campground. This campground is in an excellent location for exploring the Homosassa/Crystal River area and is close to many good restaurants. There is a Publix supermarket just up the street and it is near a Wal-Mart. We would definitely stay at this RV Park again.

The only thing this place has going for it is its location literally at the entrance to the Carlsbad Caverns NP. Pay at the motel office down the street and get the code for the CG gate, then if you are in a motorhome, send the navigator out to press the buttons on the gate while you drive through. The entry road is rough and has ruts and mud during the rainy season. Grass had not been mowed in a while when we were here. Each site does have a concrete pad with a picnic table shelter, but it is old enough that you may not be able to open your slide if you park right on the pad. All that said, so what? It is rather inexpensive, and you are 5 minutes from the caverns, the reason you are here anyway. The restaurant was closed when we were here, so it is apparently seasonal, check if you are planning to eat there. If I were going to stay more than a day or two, I would look elsewhere, but for a trip to the caverns and moving on, this worked great.

This park is a very small park actually on top of a mountain with what has to be one of the best views in the area. Beautiful hill country of Texas with Lake Travis in the distance. No shade but the breeze on the mountain top keeps one cool. There are only 10 sites with full hookups, and a small laundry room. It is on the north side of Lake Travis and convenient to Cedar Park, Leander and other towns north of Austin. The road into the park is steep, very steep, but the resulting view is worth it. The owner lives on site. Be sure to call before arrival to be sure a site is available. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a very well maintained RV park that is very convenient to I-10 and I-25. Access is very easy due to the wide access roads. It is very close to a large shopping area (Wal-Mart, grocery store, restaurants, bank, etc.) and only about a mile from historic Mesilla and its beautiful plaza, cafes, and shops. It is also very close to the NMSU campus. The interior roads are very wide with curbs. All sites are gravel and are clean and raked after each camper leaves. The perimeter sites are back-ins with privacy fences/foliage between them. The pull-throughs are back-to-back with privacy fences/foliage between them. The office/clubhouse is beautiful with a spa, patio and outdoor fireplace. The showers and laundry rooms are spotless. The staff was very friendly and helpful with one of the owner/operators on site. They have a hotel style complimentary breakfast and newspaper each morning. A Margarita Party each Friday night is a great way to meet other RVers. The Wi-Fi is Coach Connect and worked great. We would definitely stay here again!

Trailer Ranch is one of the neatest, cleanest RV parks we have ever stayed in. The staff is one of the most friendly we have ever encountered. They were very helpful in everything from providing recommendations to restaurants, tour info, etc. It is an urban park on a very busy highway, but it is a main highway into Santa Fe from I-25. Very convenient to shopping and attractions. Wal-Mart, groceries, restaurants within a few blocks. Bus Stop right in front of the park in case you don't tow or do not want to drive. There are plenty of trees so shade is good, but satellite dish may not work. Cable TV is on every site though. There is also a "club house" with a library, game rooms and book exchange. It is very tight and the sites are small. They require a staffer to help you park. Wi-Fi (Coach Connect) worked great. We would absolutely stay here again! We really enjoyed it as our base for Santa Fe/Taos.

Thought this was going to be an "easy" off/on from I-40. Signs were very hard to follow and down a couple of very narrow secondary roads. Almost missed one of the turn signs which would have made a very tough turn-around with the toad. Last leg is through a residential moble home park. Arrived after closing (about 9:30 PM) but found a box for late arrival. There were instructions to fill out the forms...but no forms. So does that mean that the 3 open sites are reserved for others? I guess not since we found a site anyway and parked. As we rode through we realized that the sites are all pull-through, on a dead end street. We were lucky that there was an opening..had it been full, we would have had to unhitch the toad and back out! There were a lot of long term campers there with work vehicles, dogs, trash cans, etc everywhere. We stayed in a spot with a permanent trailer next to us that had dogs barking all night. Next morning, I was up to hit the road early, waited on the office to open, and was told that I owed them $28 plus tax, paid them and left. Next time through here, I'll keep going!
