Previous reviews are spot on. We were the only campers there besides the long term/permanent residents who are all placed to the back of the park. Check in was fast and smooth. All interior roads are paved. Park layout made it easy to maneuver to our spot. All sites appeared large. We had a pull through that could have easily fit two big rigs end-to-end. Interestingly there were 2 sets of hook up on each of the pull through just for that. Each site was easily marked, and we had no trouble pulling into our assigned spot. The sites are mostly grass with gravel for the pad. Our site was level front to back and only slightly off level side-to-side. Standard utility connect and very stable and clean power. Each site has a cable connection, but we had to run the lead to another pole due to the center connector not being there for the connection at our site. Word of caution: the park is on well water. Pressure was good but the taste was unpalatable. Also, the WiFi connection was very strong but apparently in this day of multiple WiFi devices in each family there is only 1 WiFi password for each site that will only allow 1 device to connect. Additionally that connection will quickly time out and the username/password must be re-entered. We quickly figured out that we could connect using the username/password for adjoining, empty sites. The park is close to downtown and less than 10 minutes to the air base. For your 4 legged family members watch out for the burrs that will get embedded in their paws. This is just a fact of life for this part of Texas but the severe drought that they have been having there may be a contributing factor. Overall a nice park. On first look it appears a little old and dated, but it has been well maintained. We plan on staying here the next time we come through the area.

Called on a Thursday for a 3 day weekend during the local Oktoberfest. Owner was very friendly on the phone and was able to accommodate. Previous reviews are spot on. Campground is a large gravel lot with 30 RV spots. All spots are back in. We were put into #30. Spot was fairly level side-to-side but it was up hill backing in resulting in the nose being lower than the tail of the rig even after disconnecting from the truck. Price was for a 50 amp connection, only needed 30 amps but the 30 amp plug had burned up and not been repaired so "had" to use and pay for the 50 amps at $4 more per night. We traveled with 3 four legged kids, but there was little to no area for them to go do their business. Water hookups are shared. Apparently, even numbers spots have to use a spigot on either the other side of your rig or one on the other side of the rig to the left of you. Fortunately, I had extra hoses. When temps drop below freezing they shut off and padlock the spigots.

If you're between St. Louis and Kansas City this is about your only RV park option and the owners know it. While the park is acceptable the individual sites are packed close together and the entrance/exit road is narrow. Even this time of the year the trees are still an issue (see previous reviews concerning scratches on the rig from the trees). In the more than 2 weeks I was there I lost count of the number of people that had to jockey their rigs back and forth to get them into or out of the site due to the lack of space. The owners apparently have been there a long time and have lost the meaning of the term "customer service". Unless you have a rig that costs more than the rest of will ever make in a lifetime you are relegated to the 2nd or 3rd rows of the park where the narrow sites and roads are. Don't believe the pictures on the web site, they all show the owners rig that seems to be permanently parked in the best spot in the park. When we called ahead to make a reservation we explained we would be there for more than 2 weeks for a family emergency. When we arrived we were put into a spot that was barely long enough for my 32' 5er leaving me no where to park the truck except on the road (blocking access) or in the grass (violating one of many of their "rules"). The sites are gravel with a small concrete pad with a weather worn splintery picnic table. Utilities were in the middle of the pad but you have to work on positioning your rig to be able to get the slides open without hitting the utility posts. The parking area is gravel and not a one is level either front to back or side-to-side. After two weeks the maintenance man came by and knocked on our door and told us they were shutting the water off on the row we were parked on. When I went to office to try and find out more information the owners were extremely abrupt and rude with me. A few days later I stopped by the office and while not trying to complain passed on that the lights in the shower room turned themselves off after less than 5 minutes. Apparently there is a motion sensor that shuts the lights off when no motion is detected. This had been happening every morning for the entire time we stayed in the park. At one point a fellow camper came in while I was showering in total darkness and stood there to make sure the lights stayed on. He said the lights did the same thing to him. When I mentioned all this to the owners I was accused of tampering with the motion sensor programming. I, for one, had no idea that you could even program those things. The upshot was that the owners were in no way apologetic or concerned (what if I had fallen in the dark?) but rather blamed their shortcoming as the fault of the camper. Needless to say I will not be coming back to the park and making sure my friends don't either.

Good for an overnight stop. All hookups worked well. Sites were not very level however. Wi-Fi worked fine. Did not check out the bath house or laundry room. Owner stayed open late to check us in after we called ahead. Over nights were mixed among longer term construction workers but the park was quiet. Had a flat trailer tire, checked with the repair guys at the Shell station across from the park entrance. In 15 minutes they had a new tire mounted and didn't even charge me full price. Easy access from the interstate. Would stay here again.

Loved our night here. As previously stated, the city patrolman comes by and collected the fee around 8 pm. Wi-Fi was iffy and slow but worked. AT&T air card worked well. Entire campground was quiet and we felt very secure staying here. Just behind the spot was a small lake, just wonderful for a nice walk. The dogs loved it there. The bathhouse was sufficient, think field house locker room for those that remember those days. No sewer at each site but the dump station at the bathhouse was easy to pull around to in the morning. It was easy to find from I-70. We are looking forward to coming back and staying longer than one night. We highly recommend this park for those passing by in the interstate.

Think parking lot with a power post and water/sewer hookups at the back of each site. There was no shade trees or grass to speak of. The only plus was the short walk to casino just down the street. The casino has it's own RV park as well that looks just like this park and is closer to the casino. Park rules require pet owners to walk their pets to the pet area which is a small fenced in place for the family pets to do their business. It would appear that the pet area is that in name only as it seemed to be covered with kitty litter and smelled very strongly of urine. In the 5 days we stayed I don't think it was ever cleaned. Park rules required attendants to "guide" you to your spot. Most of the spots are either taken by long term residents or saved for those with the expensive rigs. We were and our 5er were shuffled off to the back row of the parking lot. The guide stated that I had to be 10 inches inside the pained lines for the spot and when I backed the rig in under his direction I would have not been able to open the slide on one side of the V. I took over and repositioned myself which upset the guide. He got more upset when I had to further jockey the rig because the Sidewinder hitch requires the truck and trailer to be as close to straight inline as possible. If I had left it as he wanted I would not have been able to unhook. At one point I had to take the trailer to the dealer for repairs. Upon return I had to go through the whole process of backing in again with a new guide. The park had been re coated not to long ago resulting in the pups tracking blacktop tar through the trailer every time they came back from walking. One plus, you can order propane in the office and the propane company will come to your rig and refill the tanks for you there. While we were not in Vegas to visit the RV park we will be looking for a different park on our next visit.

The best RV park we have ever stayed at. Each site is individually owned. The sites that are rented out are spartan but have a large concrete, level pad and a big patch of gravel. We parked on the gravel and used the pad to set the chairs on. Hookups were excellent and cable TV worked great. Wi-Fi was weak, at best, but as the office staff explained, most of the owners provide their own internet capability. The AT&T air card worked good however. The clubhouse did have Wi-Fi and nice sofas and chairs to set in. There was a workout room in the clubhouse that was well provisioned. Shower rooms were large and immaculate. Each clubhouse had several shower rooms as well as just bathrooms. Each was a private, lockable room for privacy. Also at the clubhouse was a large kitchen for the guests to use as well as a coin operated laundromat. Given the location it was not surprising that there was little in the way of grass for the pups to use but the park was large enough that we were able to walk them on a different walk each day. The park does have puppy "deposit" stations with pickup bags to restock your pocket with. It was a short 2 mile drive to a new Super center as well as several restaurants. Overall we loved this park and are making plans to come back for a longer stay.

Nice park nestled among the pines. Very little road noise from the four lane highway running beside the park. It appears that most of the sites are taken by long term rigs (some actively being lived in, some parked as weekend get-a-ways). Park layout is confusing but the park attendants will guide you to your spot. Hookups worked well, even when the temperature dropped below freezing for a couple of nights. Just a short drive to downtown Flagstaff and many nice restaurants. Just down the street from the park is a new shopping center with supermarkets, etc. There are no restrooms or showers in the park. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Stayed one night on our way west. Wish we had the time to stay longer. This park is first rate. Hookups are shared between 2 sites on a common post but there was plenty of room between sites that it wasn't a problem. The roads are paved while all sites are small gravel and level. Good water pressure. 60 channels of cable TV. Wi-Fi worked great. One pleasant surprise, the water was soft water. Not sure if the RV park did that or city water came that way naturally but sure felt good. For dog owners there is an enclosed dog run with an actual fire hydrant and dog mess pick-up tools. The enclosure was at least 30'x 30'. Our dogs had a great time running and it was large enough we could even play catch with them. Did not use the showers but they were spotless when I checked them. The restrooms were equally spotless. Check-in was effortless. When we checked out in the morning the lady at the desk asked what our travel plans were (Petrified Forest NP). When we told her she suggested that we go a little out of our way and visit the Hubbell Trading Post. Glad we took her advise, it was an outstanding day of sightseeing. The park sits at the end of the Gallup airport runway but being an Air Force pilot I didn't hear a single plane all night. Also did not hear any of the trains passing by on the opposite side of the park entrance. We loved this park and highly recommend it if you are passing through Gallup. We stayed free for active duty military.

Stayed in site E4 (electric and water). Site is your basic average state park. Did not use it but there is a shower house, condition unknown. It rained 3 of the 4 nights we stayed here. All the sights are on the side of a hill leading down to the lake. During the rains all sorts of debris and gravel was washed down hill. The road out of the campground was almost washed out. Park ranger was very friendly and helpful. His assistant, however, was anything but. In fact, rude and inconsiderate come to mind. Entrance to the park is down a steep switchback road. The road between Clayton and the park is narrow, winding and prone to flooding and washout. During one night of rain we were prevented from going into town because the road was flooded and closed. Be advised, there is absolutely no cell phone service available at the park.
