What a gem! This park has it all, usually half empty, very quiet, although it filled up for July 4 wekend. We're staying all summer, backed up to the river. Terrific for kids: even a big fishing pond for kids only. Asphalt roads and pads, big sites, shady, river breezes. Watch for goose droppings. That's a monthly rate for our river site.
Agree with the two previous reviews, wanted to add: very few mosquitos!!! Said to be due to abundance of moving water in streams. Also, terrific displays of wildlife/history/other educational dioramas in headquarters building, along with bird-watching stations. Programs for kids.
What a great campground! Very laid back, lots of year-round (in Minnesota!) older rigs, very friendly, and GORGEOUS: treed, and a river runs through it! Dirt roads, grassy sites, peacocks, emus, a penned deer, horse pasture, playgrounds, laundry. The "Clubhouse" has pool, darts, a few groceries, and a BAR! Not for the concrete/gravel/pad/sauna/pool types probably, but there's a rope swing out over the river! We loved it.
Old park, only one shower and one toilet for women, same for men. Lots of older permanent rigs. Friendly folks, frequent organized meals, games, events. Tight spaces. No telephone available. Cell signal poor. They have some fenced spaces for some of their permanent residents with ever present barking dogs. Gorgeous desert surroundings.
What a gem! Well-maintained large gravel sites, connections all worked well, got signals on both dishes easily. Warm, friendly owner greeted us, pointed to the on-site petroglyphs, invited us to the evening pot-luck/card games. No cell phone signal at our site, but out in front of the office there was. Phone in office, too. Huge library: take one, leave one. Videos and DVDs to rent cheap. And the scenery is unequalled dramatic desert/mountain/wildlife. Propane on site, cheaper than in Deming. Great price with AOR. Yes, the approach road is gravel and a tad dusty. So what. If you like the desert, seclusion, quiet, breathtaking sunsets and moonrises, and nice folks, come here.
