No frills park very close to the Bosque del Apache, where we were attending the Festival of Cranes. No Internet, but our MiFi worked very well. Manager was very helpful and friendly. Restroom was clean and had a portable heater (much needed, as it snowed while we were there). No picnic tables, but large manufacturing spools for tables; it was too cold to sit outside anyway. Railroad very close with train whistles day and night, though not every night. Nice views of rural area, but rigs very close together so essentially no view to either side. We stayed a week and would return when we want to visit the Bosque again.
Good place to stay if you want to visit Acoma Pueblo, or the national monuments and other sites in the Grants area. Gravel pull-through sites close together. No picnic tables. Clubhouse has restrooms and two showers, TV, and tables where you can use the Wi-Fi connection, which is almost nonexistent from the campsites. Clubhouse closed 10 pm to 8 am. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. There is a $10 deposit for key to water and electric connections.
Very nice setting among large cottonwood trees. Can have shade if you want it; we chose a sunny spot for warmth on cold mornings. Restrooms fine and have electricity, but no showers available. Campground roads narrow and confusing. Most sites are back-in.
Beautiful campground; most sites have lake view. Restrooms and showers very nice, though showers are way down the hill and cost $2 for 15 minutes. Sites very close together, but each has a picnic table. Wi-Fi very weak or nonexistent. No discounts.
Very clean park and an excellent value for the price. As with many parks, Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Host was friendly and helpful. Location was very convenient for visiting many of the national parks and monuments in southern Utah. We would stay there again.
The park was clean and quiet. Highway noise quieted down after dinner. The park is very convenient to Capitol Reef National Park. Office staff was very friendly. Strange restroom arrangement -- a room with 2 toilets, but no stalls. Two single shower rooms available, but we were only given a key for one. Gravel driveways, concrete pad under picnic table, with grass and trees on site. Nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount.
The park was clean, but noisy due to many people with ATVs revving their engines. Also there was a lot of traffic noise from the highway, and occasional trains nearby. The laundry has 3 washers and 3 dryers. The restrooms are a little strange -- in one building there are 3 rooms each with a toilet, sink and shower -- not very efficient. In another building there are women's and men's rooms, each with 2 toilets and 2 showers. We didn't use the pool, but it is tiny.
The woman in the office was very friendly and helpful. The park was clean and quiet. TV reception with an antenna was very good, and the Internet connection was good. Cable TV is available at most sites, but not ours.
Sugarite Canyon is beautiful, though very hot in summer. Lake Maloya is stocked with trout and bass, and no motorboats are allowed except small electric motors. There is a self-guided walking trail through the remains of the old mining community just above the visitor center- very interesting. Lots of birds to see. The showers are probably more than a mile from the campground, so we didn't bother to go down there. Restrooms are pit toilets.
Beautiful setting, very quiet. More than 21,000 petroglyphs can be seen from an easy hiking trail. There is also a short trail to some pueblo remains. The price is for a site with electric and water, reflecting Federal senior pass discount. Without hookups it would have been only $3.50.
The park is beautiful desert landscape with views of mountains and Great Sand Dunes. There were only five campsites filled when we were there. The $27 per day is a little high for no services. When we were there, the building with the showers and restrooms was locked, and we never saw any staff anywhere. The park brochure states there are showers and restrooms, but all there were was available was a small building with 2 pit toilets. We would go back because it is so beautiful and quiet.
