This campground reopened under new owners in June of 2014. While the sites are very similar to years past, the service is much less than we expected. The campground is charging premium prices for the area, but the premium services are just not there. They do not tell you when making reservations that the cable system has been very degraded, and internet (also cable supplied) is mostly non-existent. We had to go into Red River several times to make the online payments and get email. Most important, they do not discount the prices for this lack of service, and do NOT tell you there is NO refund if you decide to leave early. If they would tell you these things in advance, it would be easier to accept these issues. When speaking with the campground staff, they were aware of the issue, but seemed to be unable to do anything about it due to the owner. I will be watching for next years updates to see if these issues have been resolved. It will be a major factor in deciding if we return again next year.
Check-in was slow. When we did get to our assigned site, we found it rutted and sunken so that the curb became a tripping or twisted ankle danger. Power pedestals have a lock on them, and you may be charged a $5.00 deposit for the key. Refundable at checkout. We were given a password for the interent and tried many times to connect, but could not see the network for more than a few seconds. When we were able to connect it was a timed connection and logged you off after 60 minutes. I was told that a shuttle could be called to take us to the casino and return us to the RV park. After calling we waited 30 minutes before a security van arrived. Bottom line is I will not leave any more of my hard earned $$$ here. The Casino at Mile Marker 108 treats their customers as though they want them back.
The next review pretty much says it all. It is a good place to spend a few days, but the sights are very difficult to level a fifth wheel. They have a slope on the front and back of the pad as you pull through,and have a 3-4 inch slope downhill towards the bottom of the park. I found the boards they provided helpful, but would have been better if they had simply graded the sites properly to begin with. Internet was intermittent quality between poor and excellent. Cable service was good. We originally planned to stay 4 days, but shortened it to three due to the costs.
Well maintained and clean. Easy access off Interstate 40. All hookups were properly located and in good repair. Roads inside the campground are asphalt and sites are gravel. Very easy to get into sites and level up as the gravel is well compacted and level. Appears to have a good office store. It is advertised as a RV park and Horse Motel. Don't let that deter you. This is a great place to overnight or for extended stays.
One of the best places we have ever overnighted. Check-in is very simple. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Sites are gravel, level, and wide. All hookups are located in the proper location and well maintained. Easy walking distance to restaurant so if you don't want to unhook a meal is nearby.
I can't complain too much as it did meet most of our needs. Two pools; one for everyone, one for adults only. Sites are level and do have enough seperation on most areas. We spent the majority of our time seeing the sites and as such did not use most of the parks facilities. NOTE: Tangonet is the WiFi service. It is limited to one (1) computer ONLY for free. And even though we were situated less than 50 FT between two seperate towers we seldom were able to get a useable connection speed to the internet Would return again as it does appear to be one of the best in the area.
Beautiful park. We had a single night to stay. We had reserved 5 nights, but could not stay more than the one due to the very limited availability of the internet, no AT&T cell phone service, and no cable or over the air TV service. The sites are very nice and large. All gravel with very nice manicured trees (Cedar and Pine) The hot tub is small, maybe 4-6 person but there are no age restrictions so your young kids can join you. At the time of our stay, fire restrictions prevented ANY outdoor fires and the sewer connections were 30 feet behind my connection when properly situated for electric and water. Those who wish to stay here should also be aware that it is located 20 miles south of Colorado Springs on 115. This may be a drawback for many who want to sightsee.
Many other campgrounds in the area. This one was Passport America and the discount is why we chose this one. It turned out to be a jewel for an overnight stay. Customer service was the best I have ever seen. Even before we could get set up, management was on the site to insure everything was satisfactory and even replaced a marginal cable TV connector to make sure I had the best signal available. Wi-Fi was great and FREE. Cable channels (46) were analog but good reception. Many restaurants within an easy walk if you want to eat out. Sites were level and spaced well for slideouts on both sides. Will be back, on the return trip.
Very nice place to stay. Run by the county and is a first rate place. Only negative comments I can make is that the Wi-Fi is centrally located in the recreation center (mid-park) but works well if you are there, and that the interior roads are a bit tight. I pulled a 35ft 5th wheel and found that it is passable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again anytime I was in the area.
Arrived on May 16 and stayed through the 19th. Sites are mostly back in but are wide and long enough for most any unit. The sites are grassy on a hard packed surface. Entrance is 1/10th mile east of exit 311 on I-95. The sign is there but not easy to see, and campground sits back a hundred yards or so off the highway. You need to look carefully as soon as you exit and turn right from North bound I-95 or on the left as soon as you pass under the I-95 if coming from the North. The office is only open 8:00 - 10:30am and 1:30 to 6:00pm, but I did notice that these appear to be flexible as the office staff may choose. Overall, I would say this offers everything a retired couple looking to see St Augustine would need. Full hookups, Wi-Fi (excellent) and 60+ cable channels (many not of any value, but CBS, NBC, and ABC were good.) Staff, when in the office, is very helpful and courteous. If I had a need to stay in the area again I would be quite happy with this park.
A gravel parking lot. No trees and very little in the way of grassy areas. Hook-ups were nice and the park was well maintained. Several newer sites were under construction. This campground had friendly staff and a nice office but it was clear that it was primarily inhabited by long term oilfield workers.
Arrived after dark. It was difficult to find the campground due to a small unlighted sign several feet off the hiway. A phone call to the campground quickly got us back on track. We were met at the front entrance and quickly checked in and pointed to our site. Pull thru was very easy to enter and was level. Hook-ups were properly placed and well maintained. We did not do any more than use this as a night stopover but would certainly use it again when in the area.
Found the park quite nice. The access into the park is a little narrow and it is difficult to navigate some of the sharp turns and steep inclines. Road surfaces are gravel and made pulling a heavy fifth wheel a slippery process. At one point I stopped and placed the tow vehicle in park and set the emergency brake to look at a site. When I exited the vehicle it started sliding backwards. The sites themselves are quite nice. Large, shaded, and most are level. I did not notice very many true pull thru sites as most appeared to be terraced at the back making it impossible to pull thru. Backing into the sites can be a bit tricky due to the sharply curved roads. I would reccommend this camp ground to anyone wanting a quite peaceful hillside retreat. My only caution would be to consider this a great spot for towed RV's under 28-30 feet.
