Pure Plane Jane, but nice setting. Friendly and helpful owner. Good power and water pressure. Close to Bosque del Apache wildlife preserve: an awesome place! Very quiet except for very occasional train, no problem for us. Definitely stay here again.
Location, location, location. Super close to Carlsbad Caverns, only CG within even 20 miles of the Caverns. It is 7 miles up the road. Outside of location, it is a pretty funky, crummy CG. People do not pick up after dogs, and apparently this is OK. Sites are very close to each other, we had no one on either side so it was not an issue, but were someone next to us I believe our slide would virtually touch. I suspect it usually is not full nor busy, so you might also get an empty space next to you. Bottom line, don't expect much, stay for the convenience of location. If we went to the Caverns again, I would stay here.
Rate reflects non pull through, 30 amp, no sewer. Park is under new (maybe 1 year) ownership. Owner seems a little confused. Park needs some upgrades. Our power was virtually non existent (couldn't even run a ceiling fan), water did not work for two days. Tons of tent camping meaning little munchkins everywhere. And noisy: loud, very loud Mexican music at 7:30a (of course office doesn't open until 9 am). Location is very pretty and pleasant but unless you want tons of kids romping around, you should think twice. Work campers did a good job and really seemed to care, but word is that at least some have left.
Park is out of Taos, actually Valle Escondito, half way between Taos and Angel Fire. Setting is beautiful, park is not. Very run down and does not live up at all to add on web page. No trout in "Trout" pond, no pads, Wi-Fi very marginal, only 5 or 6 pull throughs, patio tables falling apart - mostly unusable - and most sites are not with BBQ. Have not seen any horse coral either. Sites and road are mostly dirt, sites are quite unlevel. Some noise from Hwy 64 right in front but actually not bothersome. Reservation system is virtually non existent. Manager is nice but confused on what sites are available. Place is very much in need of maintenance and a lot of TLC. For what you get, it is overpriced.There is a large field where you can run dogs off leash. I might stay here again if maintenance and upgrading were done, otherwise no.
Convenient, yes. Owners friendly and helpful, yes. But park is pretty rustic, all dirt and dusty. 50 amp sites are the least desirable sites. Pretty basic park for much more than basic price. We paid $45, with tax, and with AAA discount. Way too much for this park. Will not stay here again unless price were to be drastically reduced.
What a weird, funky place. Well off the highway and down a washboard dirt road. The so called lakes are mud holes, and one is dry. Place is all dirt and pretty grungy. They only take cash, no reservations, $1 extra for a pet. The $17 reflects Passport America rate, normal rate is $32 plus pet fee, an outrageous, absurd, ridiculous amount. In fact, $17 seemed high for this place.
Rate reflects C to C "Good Neighbor" rate. A very nice little park. Friendly and helpful owners who guided us into the site, clean and well kept. Far enough off the hiway to avoid most hiway noise, some noise from the street/hiway it is on, but never bothered us. The town of Welcome is well worth a drive through. Lots of area to walk a dog. Would definitely stay here again.
One qualifier. We saw some pretty scuddy camp sites: dirt/uneven/no view. So as long as you get one like we had, right on the river, with a magnificent view (we had a great site #5), this is one great park. Wonderful managers, nice folks around us, clean, grass (well kept)asphalt pad, fire pit. Just a nice stay. Definitely would go back.
For $15 as it used to be I would rate it 9, for $20, as we paid, 8. Nice little park on the fairgrounds. Park on grass, most sites with shade. Make sure to have a long electric cord as electrical hook up is far away (30 amp only). No sites are level, some worse than others. Albert Lea, while a little run down, is a fun town to explore. We would stay here again.
Big Rig access is checked, I won't dispute this but sure doubt it. We were super tight with our 35' fifth wheel. Check in is extremely slow and inefficient. Spaces are very tight and very close and virtually, or literally, no place to park tow truck or toad. Two out of 3 laundries do not work (one has no appliances). The sites are unlevel, picnic tables if you happen to get one, are old and dilapidated. Just a tough spot for rigs over 30'. We camped here as a Coast to Coast guest (hence the $10 rate). On the positive side the water and electric are good (although you may need an extension cord to reach the electric). For $10 I might stay here again but doubt it.
This place was spooky to us. Junky looking, really dilapidated run down permanent "rigs" (some will never move again). We would have left except we were meeting friends. We were given a supposed 50 amp site but it was only 30 amp, don't even know if they have 50 amps. The manager knew nothing about RV's and very, very little about his small park. Would not stay here again.
This is a nice little CG, but pretty plain Jane. It is right on hwy 52 and there is some traffic noise. Not much else near by that I am aware of so if it fits your stop/travel plans go for it. This is our first stay (our home base camp), we would stay again if we are close by.
What a pleasant stop. Very well maintained, comfortable CG. Has everything, 50 amps, 60psi water, wifi,space, newspaper, nice friendly owners/managers, level spaces, grass for dogs, Wal Mart almost across the street, great Flying J almost next door (no noise), quiet. No pool, no fancy meeting room (nor any of that other stuff we don't like to pay for) just a great, comfortable park at a very good value/cost ratio. Definitely would come back.
I rated this a 10 because of the value. We paid $30.50 per night on a 30% discount coupon, normal is $45 (if I had paid $45 I would have rated an 8 or 9). The park is beautiful, well kept, quiet and very clean. As to tight turns, maybe but I have seen no one even the really big rigs have any trouble. Location is great for getting around town. Wifi works excellent, free paper at your door is pretty cool, and free continental breakfast if you so choose.
This is pretty much just a stop over place. It is a little funky but quite acceptable. We were escorted and directed into our pull-through site. Folks were nice, price is appropriate for this park. Only warning is that it is all dirt/sand.
This park is absolutely over priced! There is no way it is worth over $30 per night. It is old, very narrow roads, dusty, noisy (kids and activity)dirty water (O.K to drink but brown from a well). We paid $36 and that was with a discount. I will not stay here again.
This is a member park and it stays busy with members. We were here as a Coast to Coast guest. The spaces are really close to each other and many are difficult to get in. Every other space is only 20 amps (pretty low when it is hot) and the other spaces are 30 amp (you don't know which is which, the first one in gets to pick). The swimming pool is about a mile and 1/2 away. Strange place, needs a lot of upgrading, which appeared to be in the very early stages of development. As a Coast to Coast member $10 was about the right price. I would only stay here again if they complete the new sites.
This is definitely a rustic camp, and you have to drive 3 miles on a very washboardy road to get to the camp. It is high desert for sure. But the camp is very nice with a great view of the valley. Sites are all dirt but fairly even and pull through. Our biggest problem here was mosquito's (it was a bad year for them and July might be the worst month for them). Definitely an interesting place, if I were in this area I would stay here again.
This park is up in the woods, maybe 20 minutes or so from town. It is not close to the Columbia River, this is both good news and bad news. Bad because every adventure is a bit of a drive, good because all the spots along the river are crowded and right next to the highway and the railroad track (trains run all night and day). The setting is beautiful. The roads are all pea gravel and difficult to walk on (terrible for dogs) and poor for traction. Many of the sites are up a relatively steep hill and if you don't have 4 wheel drive you have to really take a fast run at the hill. Spots are tight and short for rigs over 30'. Wifi only works at the rec hall. Leroy, who owns and runs the place is a super guy and will do anything to make your stay pleasant. Also, the camp is new and Leroy is continually improving the camp with time.
Stayed here as a Coast to Coast member. This is a very nice park, not fantastic but nice. Basically the RV spaces are all in an open grass area but surrounded by trees. Good facilities here, nice people, both staff and guests. Tons of rabbits! Would stay here again.
We stayed in the "F" loop. I would stay in the F loop again. It does not have sewer (as the other loops do for the same price) but it has bigger spots and is quieter. All the spots in this park are really great. Paved spots surrounded by lots of grass, trees and brush and the near by (1/4 mile walk) Rogue river. Loved our stay here definitely would come back.
All the Oregon State parks we have seen are great! South beach is certainly right up there. Close to the beach, tons of hiking and biking trails, Newport is a great town. The rangers are friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.
This is one great park for a great value. Well maintained, clean and neat, and nice spots. Friendly helpful staff, nice rec room, everything was just great. Nice enclosed dog run and also plenty of good space to walk a dog. Definitely would stay here again.
This park is a great stop over, good location, close to freeway and fuel and restaurant. Most of the park is permanent residents, but that is no problem. The park is kind of funky, definitely no Taj Mahal, but adequate. Priced correctly, it was a good value.
Sites are super close together. We are sharing a small patch of grass with our neighbors parked about 7 to 8 feet away. Park is close to 50% permanent or long time residents. Several people start going to work at 5:15 am in the morning. This place is just OK. While it is very close to highway 101, traffic noise is not an issue. To me it is priced a little high for what you get and the closeness of rigs, but is probably your best bet if you want to stop in Paso Robles.
Stayed here on Coast to Coast (non member rate $45). Awesome place completely in the redwoods. Many sites are very tight for a 5th wheel and be careful navigating within the park. Do not take a 5th wheel (probably not a decent sized class A) south on highway 9! Very narrow and super curvy, but a beautiful drive in a car or truck. The place could use some maintenance and upgrading but it is a beautiful place to stay. We loved it.
We stayed in the group area with a group (hence group rate). Very nice place, although we were pretty close together (non group sites looked a little better). Wonderful club house, highly recommend for a group gathering. Also has a great dog run, really nice. In my opinion, even though a nice place, I think it is over priced and not a good value.
To get to park you have to drive on the levee which is narrow and interesting, then very steep decline into park - but quite doable. Park on grass. Several older, "funky" rigs in park but no issues. Wi-Fi is a big rip off, $8.50 per day for a lousy connection (note, my friend's air card did not have a good connection either, unlike an earlier poster). Good value at $10/day (Coast to Coast) wouldn't want to pay a regular rate.
Many different campgrounds, some completely dry, some water and elec, some full. This is one gorgeous location! Very clean park, lots of room, great facilities. Two big gripes, you book dirtectly with the park and yet they charge $7.50 reservation fee. Number two is they charge $3 per day for a pet (and you get nothing for that, except sometimes a pick up bag!) Rates vary depending on dry/partial/full hook up.
I have read several bad reviews of this place. Ran into a member on another trip who said "balony" try it so we did. It was wonderful. Beautiful place, with wonderful facilities. Great,very friendly, helpful people. Everything clean as a whistle. Nice pool, even have a little minature golf course (for free!). Only minor draw back, it is right on Highway 78 which has some trafic during the day (worse on the week end) but not bad and always quiet at night. I am going back for sure! If you like the country, oak trees, hiking, and some nice amenities, you should give this place a try.
Agree with previous comment on this site. We paid $25 to park on uneven, non level grass. Pull through sites were in the middle of nowhere. River front sites, without electric or sewer were listed at $65 per night. Location is right next to, practically on, highway 99. Terribly noisy all day and all night. No one slept well.
