I love Marathon Motel and RV Park. We have stayed here about 4 times now and I consider it one of my home bases now. The atmosphere in the campground is one of thoughtfulness and creativity. The adobe courtyard with its fountain and nightly fires in the fireplace is one of my highlights, especially since it allows for a true atmosphere of camaraderie. This park is a member of Passport hence the rate. The owners are some of the best, and there is a true integration with the town. The park is also developing a sustainability component which will allow for recycling and composting: rare in RV parks. And the bathrooms are some of the best that I've seen in my travels. Expect excellent internet unless it is very windy when the speed slows significantly.
I camped here during a Rally and everything about this campground worked well for me and my children. The owners are wonderful people and are 90% of the reason that I will probably return here. And next best, was the speed of the internet. It had been recently upgraded and was superfast. It even worked well for gaming and watching movies. Hill Shade is the type of RV Park that is interested in creating and being part of a community. So even the nearby neighbors are open to accommodating campers. This is one of the most enjoyable campgrounds that we have stayed at.
