The location and scenery are gorgeous. We love Durango but there aren't any great places to stay if you want a high end park. This park is the closest thing you will find. The problem,though, is with management. Don't make waves and don't cross Mr. manager or he will throw you out when he is finished yelling at you. We have stayed here a few times when we are in the area and usually have a good time, but we have witnessed Mr. manager go off on people -- very unprofessional. We agree with the other posts that the Wi-Fi is worthless. Maybe they will get it fixed by next summer.
This park has so much potential but state funding is hurting its looks. Some sites have been upgraded and will hold big rigs, but many more are in need of leveling and expansion. There were electrical problems on some of the sites when we were here over Memorial Day. The back area seemed nicer than the front, with mostly tenters staying in the front section. We enjoyed our stay and will go back if we are in the area. The convenience of being in town was very nice, yet you felt like you were in the country.
You have to drive quite a ways down a sandy road to get to this park and you might wonder if you are going the right way. Eventually you will come to a big grassy field with RV hookups. The buildings and facilities are nice and new, but there is nothing special about the campground itself. Hopefully they will continue to make improvements. It was convenient to the interstate. We would stay here again based on the Passport America price.
This is a typical state park that needed some tending. The location was convenient for us so we made do. There is a beautiful fishing hole as you enter the campground and we were able to take some gorgeous pictures. Beware there are two alligators living in the little lake in the campground but they didn't seem to be a bother. We would use the park again for the convenience of conducting business in town.
Very comfortable place to stay while visiting the area. We planned to stay a week and stayed two instead. The sites are large with a shade tree to help block the afternoon sun. Our dog loved the large area for her walks. We thoroughly enjoyed the park and plan to return. The price reflects the Escapees Member discount.
We chose this campground for the hookups that are not offered anywhere else in Yellowstone. The sites are extremely close and hard to get into because the roads are so narrow. It turned out to be a good base camp for exploring Yellowstone and we had no complaints. It should be noted that if you decide to leave early, they will refund your money for the unused portion. We used the laundry facilities and they were impeccably clean with new machines. The Bison are all around and we witnessed one walking across the bridge, holding up traffic. If you go to Yellowstone, take plenty of groceries and supplies. The prices in the stores are outrageous. A loaf of bread was $4.00 and a 12-pack of bottled water was $8.00. It is a beautiful place to visit and one of the highlights of our lives.
This was our first experience at dry camping, and we survived. We were assigned a site in the generator area and thoroughly enjoyed the spaciousness of the site. You park along the side of the road, and we had to work at getting over far enough to allow our slides to come out without being in the street. However, the camping area was huge and heavily wooded. Campfires are allowed and we enjoyed sitting out in the evening staring at the flames. The only thing that would have made this better is if the sites had been on the lake. There is a full hookup area which goes for $50+ a night, but it wasn't worth it to us for just a few nights. The scenery of the Tetons is unbelievable and something we will never forget.
This park seemed fairly new and the Wi-Fi was in the works. The registration office was inside a trailer house which appeared to be the owner's home. I checked in at the kitchen counter, which was kind of strange. The sites were very large and the views of the mountains were nice. There were many long-term guests who were doing construction in the area. It was an ok experience, but not sure I would stay there again.
This park has a very comfortable feel to it, even though most of the sites are close together and some are hard to get in to. We enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to go back. The price shown is a Passport America rate.
This park is a very crowded parking lot. We were there a few nights to do some sightseeing so we really didn't care about the facilities. What I want to point out is the helpful staff. They went out of their way to rearrange things to allow us to extend our stay without changing sites. The price shown is the Passport America price, and there is no limit on the number of nights you can stay. There is a small dog park that our dog enjoyed. We would stay here again because it is convenient to the attractions and because the staff was so helpful.
A very pretty park, well maintained, and with nice amenities. The sites are side by side, but when we were there, the park was not full and they were parking rigs with an empty space between. There is a small fenced area for the dogs. The rules are written in a blunt fashion and made it seem unfriendly. The rate of $46.00 is more than we normally pay, and we would not stay there again because of that.
We were disappointed in this campground. The sites were helter-skelter like a tornado had set them all down. Many of the sites were extremely close. Extra charge for wifi. We had a premium site for $37 and there was nothing premium about it. We were there two days and none of the other campers acknowledged us even though we always waved. The ladies in the office were very nice and helpful. It's not someplace we would stay again.
A well-maintained park right on the lake. All the sites have a lake view while some are right on the lake. There is a boat ramp for the use of park residents. It would be a great place to camp if you are into fishing or boating, but not much to do otherwise. The managers had a lot of rules with a "no tolerance" level. I would rate it higher if it had more amenities and fewer stickers. Every time we walked the dog, we had to remove dozens of stickers from her hair.
This park is below average and greatly overpriced for its condition. There are two or three houses on the property and the RV spaces are in their yard, randomly spaced with no rhyme or reason. There are a few long-term residents in the park, but not too many. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Many of the sites are completely shaded by the huge oak trees but you can also have a site in full sun if that is your preference. The park is on highway 281 and there is a lot of road noise, but we were able to tune it out. The rate includes cable tv, but wi-fi is extra. This park, in my opinion, is only good for an overnight stay. I doubt we would stay here again.
This place has the WOW factor. The website does not do it justice, so the park was much prettier and upscale than I expected. The grass looks like a golf course and everything is immaculate in appearance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. At this time of year, there are not many activities going on, but they are gearing up for the Winter Texans. I would recommend this park to anyone looking for a short stay or a long stay. There is something for everyone. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area. Rate shown is for a pull-through. Back in spaces are a little less. Rate includes free Wi-Fi and cable TV.
This is Amarillo's newest park and is located on the far west side of town, near Love's, about half a mile south of I-40. We didn't hear any road noise. It is easy to get to, and a great place to spend a night or two. Being new, the facilities were very nice. Laundry is free to paying guests, something we have never come across. The sites are spacious and easily accommodate big rigs. The rate we paid was discounted since it is a "jewel" park, and we were referred by a park in Gallup, NM which is also a "jewel." We travel I-40 quite often and previously stayed at another park in Amarillo. Oasis is our new choice. We definitely will stay here again.
We use this park as a stopover when traveling to Durango, Colorado. It is right on Highway 550 and easy to get in and out of. The picnic tables are enclosed in adobe pavilions which are painted with Indian symbols, making them very interesting and unique. The park is not fancy, but it is comfortable. It is within walking distance of a casino. We will stay here again.
This is an outstanding park. It is beautiful in every way and has more activities than anyone can work into their day. It has its own golf course, and the golf course and entire park are beautifully maintained. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Palm Creek was voted mega park of the year in 2007 and it is highly deserved. The winter rates are pricey, but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for." We stayed for five months and will definitely go back again.
We liked the location of this park, just outside of Santa Fe. It is on a ridge and provides nice views of the New Mexico mountains. It seems to cater to big rigs. The flora and fauna are typical for the region and may not be everyone's cup of tea. The park owners were working diligently on clearing weeds and planting flowers which helps the appearance. This is the first campground we have encountered that does not have any rules. They simply ask that people act like responsible adults. That's a new concept! We would stay here again.
This is definitely the nicest park in the Mesa Verde area. First impression upon walking into the office was a 10. It is nicely decorated with Indian art and furnishings and felt very warm and inviting. The lodge room adjoining the office looks and feels like your own home. The office manager/owner was very nice and explained all the features and amenities of the park. The park is kept very clean, and the new owners have made a lot of progress since opening 4 years ago, with more improvements planned. There is a heated pool and two hot tubs -- one inside and one outside. Six premium sites are approximately 100 feet in length, ample to accommodate the largest of rigs. The sites are mostly gravel with only a few having grass. My only negative comment would be that I would like to see more grass. The park is geared more toward adults than children, although children are welcome. There is a small playground. This is a family run campground and they are dedicated to providing a first rate experience for their guests. We would definitely camp here again when we are in the area.
