If you have been drawn into the WHR membership system, BMR is among the best of their resorts. The staff and volunteers are nice people and the Gunnison area has a lot going for it. We like to visit the towns of Crested Butte, Lake City, Crawford, Montrose and Gunnison. This is one of the best parts of Colorado to visit in the summer and fall, especially if you like to fish, hunt, hike, take photos or get away from the crowds and relax. On the down side, WHR are a predatory company - get your lawyer to review your contract before you sign and be prepared for endless up-selling, changes in t&c, restrictions on use etc, etc. BMR has a nice facilities but most sites are not level, you will need lots of sewer and water hoses and the TV is restricted to 3 or 4 channels. There is virtually no cell phone service, you are 12 miles from town and shopping, the Wi-Fi is worthless and it can be a very long walk to the showers. Most of us love it anyway and just hope that WHR can survive until we can't drive.
Always a good convenience stop and never any problems with services, campsites, utilities or staff. The sites are all level, easy pull-throughs, and the town of Holbrook is a cool place to visit on old Route 66. We have enjoyed excellent friendly service at all restaurants, stores and attractions in Holbrook and have been saved from disaster by Scotty's towing at a very reasonable price. Petrified Forest and Painted Desert are well worth the stop.
We have enjoyed two stays at St David and have enjoyed the location, pleasant surroundings and time spent with the courteous staff. This is a good location for exploring southern AZ with easy access to Bisbee, Benson, Sierra Vista, Tombstone, the San Pedro flyway for bird watchers. We had a good level sites with access to plenty of walking trails, and the fishing ponds. Minor problems were the absurdly tight limits on the $2/day Wi-Fi service and the very poor maintenance on many parts of the park.
We have stayed here several times in spite of the relatively high price and have always thought it well worth it. We love the convenience of the location for most Santa Fe attractions and it is hard to find fault with the park or it's management. No problems with services, including excellent Wi-Fi, cable TV, and bus service! Many good restaurants are within walking distance. The park is quiet, secure and convenient - just make sure you check in before their specified time.
Our experience was spoiled by the hostile and rude behavior of the desk and office staff. We can only assume they have given up on this business are taking out their frustrations on the paying customers. Too bad. The campground itself is large and dusty (grass and gravel) and the condition of the facilities is average but a little tired. I could not recommend WHR membership to anyone at this point as their future does not look very secure and members are constantly pressured to attend high pressure sales meetings. Their sales practices are aggressive, unpleasant and deceptive and the ever-changing membership rules make it very hard to use the benefits touted. WHR have sold several of their resorts recently but have not offered to refund any membership fees paid.
