This is a very nice park. It has a majority of level pull through sites and some back-ins. It is convenient to get to from I-25 and easy to maneuver within the park. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Santa Fe. Many sites have a small concrete patio area & all sites have a picnic table. There is not much shade (trees have been planted with partial shade in some area), but the owners have planted many native flowering plants. It has great views of the area and gorgeous nite skies. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.
This is our fourth time to camp at Eleven Mile St. Park. We stayed 9 days. It is convenient to the S. Platte River and several great trout fishing lakes in the South Park area of Colorado. The state park is well run, with very helpful rangers. The Rocky Ridge facilities - pit toilets, central restrooms, showers & laundry are very clean and maintained. The Rocky Ridge Campground has 3 loops with electric only (no water or sewer connections). The other loops have no connections. RVer's must fill their water tanks before setting up and then refill by hand if they run out of water. We used our RV shower, sinks & potty sparingly (there is a pit toilet in each loop). A little inconvenience is worth the beautiful area and lakes. We will be back next summer.
We camp here at least one week every summer. The RV park is convenient to the main area of Cripple Creek & a shuttle is available. The sites are gravel, most are pull-through & fairly level, but a little too close together. The on-site camp host is very helpful.
This is our 4th time to stay at Spring Creek. Most of the sites are level gravel pull throughs and are arranged well with grassy areas between sites. Large mesquite trees provide some shade. The owners are very helpful. It is a great park for fishermen and water sports. We camp here while we visit relatives in the area and like the lake front views.
We camped here on our way to Colorado. We had never visited and wanted to see the part & the "Texas" musical. We arrived at the beginning of the worst heat wave and drought Texas has had in many years! We stayed in the Sagebrush camp area in a handicap access spot. It was very nice - paved spots and walk ways, 50amp & water, but no sewer. The restrooms/showers were right across from us. Clean, but very hot during the 100+ degrees during the day. All the spots are nice though only the handicap spots are paved. There is not much shade in this area - some around the picnic tables in the late afternoon. The Hackberry Camp area has some shady spots (#1, 3 & a few others), but they fill up quickly. The musical was very good. It is outdoors & only during the summer - after dark. We probably won't camp here again in the summer, but it would be a great destination for hikers, bikers and horse back trips in the fall - spring.
This is our 3rd time to stay here. We stay here on our way home from Colorado to east Texas and when we plan to visit the casino's across the state line in OK. The owners are great! They are working hard to update and improve the park. Last year the park's grassy area's were just beautiful - between adequate rain and the efforts of the owners. This year the Texas drought brought brown to all parts of Texas. The heat was 112 the day we drove in and our fifth wheel's 2 AC's froze up just trying to cool down the Camper - not the fault of the park. We sought cool shelter at the casino's across the state line and returned late -the AC's worked fine during the night. We will definitely stay here again. I hope we get to try the pool next time - it looked beautiful.
We are new to RVing and were eager to go camping. Since we live in Tyler we decided to try out Tyler St. Park. We stayed in an area called Lakeside - obviously right on the lake. We camped in #32 - a large & level perfect spot right on the water. There are many activities - fishing, hiking, biking, paddle boating, playgrounds, bird watching and swimming in the summer. One negative - we couldn't get TV reception with our antenna - we don't have a dish. We did get wireless Internet. Reservations are accepted for a certain date and camping area - you can't reserve a particular spot. Winter time was less crowded and very quiet. Other times of the year the park can be very crowded - especially on weekends. Anyone RVing along I20 in East Texas should consider staying in Tyler St. Park.
