It's a parking lot with hookups. The sites are not very level. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The dog run is basically across the road in an empty lot, and folks don't bother picking up after their dogs - I don't go for that as a dog owner. I doubt I'd stay here again. The Sunday morning buffet at the casino was good, and reasonably priced.
As a member of Escapees you are allowed to stay here. I was going to stay 5 nights, but it would cost the same to stay 7, so I did. Easy access to the town and lots of casino's around if that's what you like. Sites are gravel but pretty level. Folks there are friendly and helpful too. They have 2 doggies areas that are dirt/gravel, but have no shade.
The price was an average - I stayed Friday through Tuesday and it's more expensive on weekends. They charge a ridiculous amount for pets, but they do have an area for the dogs to be walked. The view from there is beautiful and I spent several hours there with my dogs enjoying the view. It's a nice park with not much to do except walk down to the beach. I would stay there again though despite the high price for pets. Staff is fairly friendly and one lady is very helpful when it comes to knowing the area, I think her name was Eva.
I give it a high rating for the setting alone! It's right next to the river and the mountains are beautiful too. I pulled in on Monday and the office is closed Monday and Tuesday during winter hours. There were only 2 other spots taken so I had my choice. I saw someone in the office Tuesday, so I went ahead and paid them - they are very trusting! I love the laid back atmosphere! Several people pulled in over the next few days making it seem not quite as spacious. There is grass next to ever spot and lots of grass in the tent area. A nice sand volleyball area and a small beach too. Very family friendly!
The campground itself isn't much, but they were working on water lines to improve them when I visited. The staff more than makes up for what the campground lacks. They are very knowledgable of the area and history of the town! I got a verbal tour of the town when I arrived, and got the low-down on the "must-see" places, which I greatly appreciated. It's very convenient to town as I had my dogs, and walked back a few times during the day to check on them. They ask you to walk your dogs outside the park because they allow tents on the sites too, but I was parked next to a walkway, so it was easy to step outside the fence. I only stayed one night, but got there early on Friday and left around noon on Saturday which was plenty of time to see what I came to see.
The sites are spacious and level, with a nice concrete pad. I stayed here 3 days after spending a night in Tombstone at a much higher rate. I used P.A., and was pleased with the rate even though they charged .13kwh. It only cost me $2.50. Like the others, I stayed a few nights, when the temperatures dropped below freezing and they asked us to unhook the water. I thought it was a reasonable request. The staff was very friendly and caring. When I went for a hike, they asked me to let them know which direction I was going and to check in when I got back, they didn't want anyone getting lost! There is a nice path around the park for walking dogs, and the laundry facility is excellent too. Very delightful place to stay.
I camped in the concession area and was fortunate to have an end spot. Basically this is just a parking lot with hookups. It wasn't much of a "campground", but the views and the hiking trails were worth it! I stayed 3 nights, and should have stayed longer. I was fortunate enough to get there on a Thursday morning and got one of the last spots for the next few days. I saw several people check in at the store only to be told there was no room and they would have to dry camp. The folks at the camp store were very friendly and they have a decent supply of items one might need that far from town. The laundry facility was clean, but some guy took my clothes out and threw them on a table. I missed timed the washer by 2 minutes. I look forward to staying here again.
