We loved it here. Will definitely come again. We were right on the beach. We were provided boards to park on, but didn't need them. Our grandchildren had a blast here, and we enjoyed the wonderful view of the water right from our kitchen window. The bathrooms and showers were not the best, but we really didn't need them. The pump-out service was great. We didn't have to do anything. Great place for a family.
One of our worse experiences. There was no one to help us find our campsite or help us. When we found it, the RV behind us was parked on part of our site, so we could not fit our 35' 5th wheel in. The road was extremely narrow, with many vehicles parked on the road, so it was difficult to back in. We asked for another site, as there were several pull-through sites that were empty. There were reservations for them at the end of our stay, but they wouldn't let us use them. They remained empty until the day before we left. It took 1 hour to get our rig in our site, and had to park it catty-wampus to get in. Then we were still hanging out in the road and had to use a cone to warn drivers/bicycles. If there had been another campground in the area we would have left. But we were here for a seminar in Utica, and it was the only campground in the area. Next time we will drive the longer distance and stay at a campground we can fit into.
This was the best deal of our trip! Wonderful overnight stay for a good price with our Passport America discount. We actually considered staying a day longer in order to rest up. Quiet, beautiful desert landscaping, with trees that were blooming. Downside was that there are no facilities for restrooms or showers. Restrooms at the gas station can be used, but they are not well-kept. Advertising states there is a restaurant there, but we did not see anything but snacks at the gas station.
We stayed 2 nights at this campground,and found it to be very comfortable. The sites are mostly pull-through, short, but wide enough to park tow-vehicle next to RV. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Roads and sites are all gravel. The park is on the west side of town and it is easy to drive the 20 miles to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We would definitely return to this park.
