Rate reflects Golden Age Passport 1/2 price discount. This popular campground has lots of campsites, most of which are level and well-spaced. There are a limited number of electrical hookup sites however, so you should be prepared to possibly dry camp upon arrival. Plenty of water spigots scattered throughout the campground areas, so fill your tanks before heading to your individual site. We saw a herd of 11 deer and a herd of 9 turkey stroll right through the campsite, and there were plenty of buffalo, large-racked elk, and long horn cattle to be seen from the roads in the park. Beautiful view from the top of Mt. Scott, and lots of gorgeous rock scenery everywhere in the park. This is a park we want to visit again so we can explore it more thoroughly and hike some of the trails.
We parked our RV in the driveway of relatives in Lamesa, so we didn't actually camp here, but we drove to the campground and confirmed that there are electrical hookups at each site. There is a sewer dump, a trash container, and there is also a water spigot. No toilet facility however. Our relative who drove us by the site told us the park was often full of RVs, but there were none the day we drove by. It is in a nice part of town, surrounded by pretty park land. Review entry form doesn't allow entering $0, but the campsites are free nonetheless.
Price reflects senior discount, else it would have been $20. Level sites, well-spaced, with water and 30 and 50 amp electric. Dump stations available, only 3 sites have sewer hookups. Very pretty campground down in a long, narrow canyon. Bathrooms were clean. Individual showers and changing rooms are provided, with coin-operated showers, 50 cents for first 3 minutes, 25 cents for each additional 1 and 1/2 minutes. No WiFi, but good cellphone and TV reception, about 15 channels, which surprised me for being down in a canyon. Lots of greenery in the canyon, and pretty red rock walls in places.
No hookups, but has a dump station, and a threaded water connector is available for refilling tanks. Sites are well-spaced and level. The nearby Canyon de Chelly is *very* pretty and the views from both the north and south rim drives are well worth seeing, including the Anazazi cliff dwellings.
Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $18. No hookups, but unthreaded water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Flush toilets and sinks in the bathrooms, no showers. Camp host said the campground will be converted to pit toilets only next year, which is unfortunate. Oh well. Sites are very well spaced and almost all are level. There were plenty of nice vacant sites to choose from mid-week, but almost every site was reserved for the weekend, so plan accordingly.
This is the first RV park I have ever visited, which offers a 360 degree panorama view, right from the campground. And it is a stunning view indeed, with nearby mountains to the west and north, and vistas over a huge plain to the east and south to more distant mountains. I could see Capulin Volcano, which is about 25 miles to the east. Campground elevation is 6500 feet. There are 117 full hookup RV sites total, in two campgrounds, and even the largest of rigs can easily be accommodated, but only 30 amp service, no 50 amp. Bathrooms were very spacious and clean, and each shower had an attached changing area. I don't know how big the entire NRA area is (there are many firing ranges as part of the center, but they are quite some distance from the two RV campgrounds), but I would estimate the total area to be hundreds of acres, perhaps thousands. Cellphone reception was excellent, and I was able to get 9 over-air channels on the TV in my rig. The host at the check-in said the campground never fills, but they do take reservations if one has a particular site they like. The Center is 10 miles south of Raton, on Highway 64, but the campground is maybe 1 mile in from the highway, so it is very quiet. You do not have to be an NRA member to camp here. I rarely give 10 star ratings, but this place earned it.
Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $7. Pit toilets, no hookups, but threaded faucets scattered throughout campground. Sites level and very widely spaced. It's a 13 mile drive from highway 522 to the campground areas (there are several, but each just has a handful of sites) but it is paved all the way. Roads in the campgrounds themselves are gravel, but mostly in decent shape. Some were washboard. Campground elevation is 7500 feet. Scenic views abound. Sites have sheltered, covered picnic tables. Taking into consideration that this is a boon docking campground, it still deserves a full 10 star rating, due to the fine views, excellent hiking trails, and huge spacing between sites.
About a 30 minute drive south of downtown Colorado Springs, but unlike many of the RV parks here, you have a bit of breathing room between the sites, whereas some of the parks right in Colorado Springs have the rigs packed in like sardines. Full hookups, and sites were level. Bathrooms snug, but clean. Quite a few deer, including 3 young bucks, roaming the campground.
Price reflects $26 camping fee plus daily $9 "entrance" fee. Full hookups, level sites, well-spaced. Bathrooms clean, but with pay showers, which I thought was kind of chintzy, given the rather high total fee. Great park for bike riding (lots of paved bike paths) and it is level and about 4,000 acres total, including a rather large lake.
Price reflects senior discount for no-hookup sites, which are normally $28. Full hookup sites are $38, no senior discount available for those. Sites are well-spaced, but not all are level, and some are too short for RV's over 20 feet or so. There were plenty of sites to choose from for rigs 30 feet or less, however all 15 full-hookup sites were taken. Dump station has fresh water, but no threaded connector. Threaded spigots inside the bathrooms, so we filled our tanks there. Free showers and WiFi at the campground check-in building.
The price is right! The town of Dumas provides a free park, complete with 30 amp and 50 amp hookups for RV travelers, just north of 87, just west of 287. There is also a threaded water spigot, as well as a dump station and trash bin. It is a level, paved lot, with about 25 electrical posts available. There is also a rest room with flush toilets and cold water sink. No showers or WiFi, but cellphone and over-air TV reception was good. The town asks that you limit your stay to one night, and there is a post for you to donate money towards upkeep of the park, but you are not required to leave a donation if you don't want to. A train line is quite close by, and VERY loud train whistles occurred until about 8 pm at night and beginning about 4:15 am the next morning, which might be a factor for some people. There were about 15 rigs in the park the midweek night I stayed. I gladly left a donation, because I would have felt guilty otherwise, since I was running my AC.
We always enjoy our stopovers at this RV park. Sites are level and spacious, bathrooms are spotless, Wi-Fi strong. Just far enough off of I-40 to be quiet at night, but close enough for easy access. We have stayed here several times, and plan to do so again in the future, because we know we can count on a quiet evening and a great shower after a long stretch headed either east or west on I-40.
Close to I-35 yet far enough removed to be totally quiet at night. Large, well-spaced sites, including many pull-through. Note that while the sites have electrical service, they do not have individual water. Instead, there are water spigots scattered throughout the campground. Showers and flush toilet restrooms was still closed for the winter when we were there, so I cannot comment on those facilities. There were pit toilets available however, along with one working water spigot near the shower room.
Rate reflects half-price for Arkansas resident senior citizen. Note that there are 2 types of sites, $20 for 30 amp and water, $30 for 30/50 amp, water, and sewer. The $30 sites are absolutely level and concrete pads, while the $20 sites are asphalt and slightly off-level, but not bad. The restrooms were spotless and nice and warm (it got down into the upper 30's during our stay) and the showers were adequately warm, but not adjustable in temperature. There are some excellent hiking trails in this park, and the sites themselves have a nice view of the lake and lots of space between adjacent sites.
The so-called "lakefront" sites (it's more of a river rather than a lake) are quite close together. The sites away from the "lake" are more spacious, as well as being less expensive. The WiFi signal only works right next to the office - forget about having a WiFi signal at your campsite. Big dock from which you can fish, plus a boat ramp for campers to launch their boats from. Bathrooms were somewhat old, but reasonably clean.
High on a hilltop, this campground has nice views off to the south, and is quiet even while being within a short driving distance of Hot Springs. Bathrooms were very clean, and the shower stalls were large. Good WiFi signal. Very nice rec hall for club use, or for sitting in a sofa and watching TV.
Nice level sites, with plenty of room between sites. The falls weren't running, but the dripping springs were, and were quite pretty. Nice hiking trail to the falls and springs. Restrooms were clean, but the hot water was only lukewarm, making for an unpleasant shower.
Sites are pretty close together, but enough room to get the slides out. Quite a few of the sites have nice views of the lake. WiFi was available, but the signal was weak and spotty and nonexistent at some sites. Owners said normally the signal was good. There had been heavy rains recently, so perhaps after things dried out the signal would have been OK, but it never was during the time we camped there.
Mostly seasonal campers here, but they keep about 10 sites available for overnighters. I'd say the restrooms are clean, but they are old and a bit musty. "Adequate" is how I'd probably describe them. But at only $23 for water, sewer and electric, the place is acceptable. It was quiet when we were there, and it's far enough off of the highway that road noise was absent. Would stay here again for an overnight.
As the name suggests, this is just off of Interstate 81, but despite that it was fairly quiet, thanks to a low hill between the campground and the highway. It's just a group of fairly close-spaced, but paved, sites nestled among motel units, but more than adequate for an overnight. Restrooms were old, but reasonably clean, and at only $20 a night for a full hookup - water, sewer, and electric - I definitely plan on using this campsite again. It's closer to the highway than the nearby Hungry Mother State Park, which was full because of Labor Day weekend, so it's good for one-night stays when traveling through the area. Pleasant, friendly receptionist at the desk.
Great campground for families, lots of scheduled activities every day for kids. Grounds and restrooms are kept spotless by the staff. Hurricane Irene was approaching so they closed the campground to everyone except out-of-state folks like us so we practically had the place to ourselves for a couple of days. It knocked out power for a couple of days though, but it was kind of fun "roughing it".
We've camped here several times and have always enjoyed it. Nice hiking trails, good spacing between sites, and excellent new bathroom facilities with nice one-person shower rooms. Price shown includes the extra $5 charge for the first night you register, so longer stays would be less expensive, but we used this just as an overnight.
