I can't believe that this is an "improved" park. I would have hated to see it before. I would say I caught it on a bad day but it would take a LOT of days to make it acceptable... After looking around, we did not stay but continued South on US 54...
The city has upgraded this park since our stay in 2006 but didn't go far enough. Due to a "construction" boom they upgraded many sites to water and electric and still have the dump available. There is no gravel or pavement for any of the spots and during rains you sink quickly. The park is still maintained but they have doubled the price and with a park available at Dorchester for the same money, this one has suffered by comparison. Too bad, because a little grading and gravel would make it a beautiful spot.
Beautiful National Forest campground 8 miles East of Mancos at milepost 63. No hookups, no dump station, pit toilets. We spent a week "off-the-grid" here enjoying the quiet and peace in our 40' motorhome. Campground is quiet and well kept. Without hookups it is never busy and stays a wonderful retreat from the noise and packed feeling of most campgrounds in the area. Sites are wonderfully spaced and all would fit a big-rig for either pull through sites or back-ins.
Park is "OK" but going downhill since they don't seem to come around to clean the sites as people leave as they used to. There are also packs of dogs roaming uncontrolled inside the campground, trying to find food, water, etc; and although they didn't seem threatening to us, people with pets had to be very careful. The locals seem to just let them go after they grow older.
While the previous reviews seem to be split along the pet/no-pet divide, We found it to be clean, level, and very usable. The owner is in his late 70s and quite mobile and checks his employees work to make sure of quality. The WiFi was weak toward the rear rows but with a booster antenna I got on easily and it was good WiFi. They also offered an entire room to bring in your laptop or use their desktops for high speed connections. We stayed here 2 days to "clean" up our coach after a couple of months out and had absolutely no problems with management or employees, in fact, found them to be very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay here again when passing through the area.
This is probably the best State Park in Arizona and that's saying something. The full hookup sites were $20. A night but we were here late in the year so got 7 days for the price of 5 making the cost less than $15 a day for a beautiful and peaceful park. 30 amp power but we love this park.
Park is a really tight fit for our 38' coach. The roads are not kept up as well as they could be and they no longer spray for mosquitos, etc; The State of Michigan now tags on several fees for being from out-of-state, second car, etc; so the real cost is nearly $30 a night for a $12 a night type site. We were lucky that the spots ahead of us were empty when we needed to get out. If you are in a big rig, unhook before entering the actual campground area. Pit toilets, no showers, and no dump station as stated before.
While the National Park book shows spur lengths to be 22', there are several on the outer edge that are over 40 feet in length. We took a 50 foot tape measure after talking to the camp host and checked out the sites he recommended. Beautiful, quiet campground which is rarely crowded since it's completely dry-camping. There is a dump station at the camp but was out of service this weekend. Potable water is available at several spots in the campground.
While it was nice to have the full hookups, It is a shame that Cabela's doesn't "spruce up" the park a little. The hosts were very nice and helpful and the phone modem in the office worked. I agree with the other raters that think it's rather sparse in esthetics. I much preferred the parking lot in Mitchell, S.D. that they provided to this park, even though it had the hookups.
Very nice National Forest Service campground with a camp host on site and minimum items available such as firewood, ice, and candies. Water is available at common locations and is very cold, safe well water. Beautiful campground with plenty of space away from the maddening crowd in most of the rest of the area. Only 5 miles from Mount Rushmore and about 5 from Hill City for a large grocery store.
This city park is useful for a "necessary" layover in this area. There is a nice R/V Dump which is free if needed. Potable water is also available. Worst part is the mosquitos during the summer. Park is right by the railroad tracks so it's quite noisy if trains bother you.
This park is only 2 blocks off the main highway through Sterling. 30 amp power, water, and sewer hookup are a pleasant surprise. Huge city swimming pool for $1 a day and a beautiful park with shade, grass, and nice walking paths.
We have used this park many times, first with Travel Trailers and now with a motorhome. It has always been very clean at each site and the bathrooms and showers are excellent. The songs of the coyotes during the night are regular and come with the package.
This park was a pleasant surprise. Hidden just past some of the less desireable campgrounds Northeast of Blythe. The sites are all on grass, 50 amp electric and water, and very quiet at night. All the hosts were very friendly and the park was spotlessly clean when we were there. We liked the convenience so well we used it again on our way back through a week later.
