Several people talked about the weeds between the sites in this park. We did not feel that was a problem, as that is just "desert landscaping". This is New Mexico after all. The park help was constantly working on keeping the weeds from being in places that they shouldn't be. The sites are all level and easy for a big rig to negotiate. The park is on top of a hill so the views in all directions are great. The Wi-Fi worked well except for a couple of times. When there was a problem, the park help got on it right away and solved the problem. They are in the process of putting in an entirely new system, which should make it even better. There were only 2 problems that kept the rating down at all. There is no cable TV but that isn't the park's fault. No provider will bring it in to them. The other main problem is the traffic coming up the dirt road from the entrance to the lower RV sites. Most of these people are long term residents and drive fairly fast up this road creating a lot of dust. The park management said they will address this problem during the next year by blacktopping this road and putting in speed bumps. This park is the best big rig park in the Santa Fe area. We will stay here any time we are in Santa Fe.
The park is FABULOUS and would have received a 10 if the WiFi had been usable. We really needed the WiFi hookup and were told it was easy to get on and was free. Well, it was free, but almost impossible to use. The park office didn't have a clue to the problem even though told many times. We spent over 3 hours total with Tech Support trying to get it to work to no avail. The signal strength was low (best we got) to very low all the time. You have to go through the WiFi registration process every 3 days with a new code and that didn't work most of the time. We will camp here again because it is such a fantastic park, we just hope the WiFi will be working better next time.
We would have given this park a 10 if they didn't nickel & dime you for everything. The park is beautiful and the staff couldn't be more friendly. The problem is, if you are paying $48.50 per night, you shouldn't have to pay $5 per day extra for WiFi, $1 for a shower, and the cable TV should work. The cable is in to all sites, but it has never been activated by the park. The TV reception is very poor on the few channels you do get with your own antenna. The pool and spa is lovely! We will probably stay here again since we have a 40' diesel pusher and there are no other high quality parks anywhere near Zion NP.
The park is not much to look at, but it is a really nice place to stay. The husband & wife team, are a lot of fun and very knowledgable about the area. There are a lot of things to see in the Raton area and the owners can point you in any direction you want for sightseeing. The sites are VERY easy to get into and level. The park pretty much fills up every night so during the season if you want a spot, either get there early or have a reservation. When they install their swimming pool &/or hot tub, things will be very nice. The voltage was very good and the only argument we have at all is that we could never get the WiFi to work. My computer could see it, but was never able to hook up to it. That is something that needs to be addressed since they advertise "free WiFi"! We will stay here anytime we are passing through the area!
Even though it was rather expensive, we spent several days in this park because it was the only one we could easily get our 40' motorhome into. The sites ARE close together and are in a terrace formation so you have a rig above and below you. When it rains, and it rains every day, whatever is in the site above you ends up in your site. Also, if the people below you are partying, it is like they are in your bedroom. The roads are very bad and that is because of the rain. The entire campground is on a huge slope and the water rushes down through the campground. One storm washed out a ditch 3' wide and 2' to 3' deep all the way down our row behind our rig. We could not have crossed it if we had to leave. The campground crew filled in the ditch which I'm sure washed out during the next storm. This problem has to be addressed with culverts or something. The sites were level. The pool was rather cool, but the hot tub was very nice. In the office they said they always have a problem with their WiFi and we were never able to connect. Some people took their laptops to the rec. room to connect, but the campground is very large and you shouldn't have to carry your laptop to the office if "free WiFi" is advertised. We would camp here again because it is the only park we can fit into in the area.
Very nice campground! We stayed in one of the premium terraced sites. Wi-Fi worked great. The owner was very helpful in guiding us to our site. We were very disappointed that during our entire stay, the hot tub was out of order and pad locked. As mentioned, the park is just off the beaten path and very quiet which is always nice. It is very easy to get to either Colorado Springs or Canon City on highway 115 which has very little traffic. We stayed here in a motorhome and would stay here again when in the area.
We have stayed in this park many times over the years. Since new owners took over a few years ago, things have constantly gone down hill. The park has great potential but it is not being used and things are deteriorating. We used to use the bathrooms on a regular basis, but not anymore. The women's bathroom has no curtains on the showers and things just aren't kept up. There is no Wi-Fi and for the prices they charge, there should be Wi-Fi. The swimming pool was covered and closed during our entire stay. The hot tub was out of order and closed during our entire stay. If two of the main amenities are not available, there should be some adjustment in the price. We stayed in the premium sites primarily for the grass which was almost non existant. The premium sites are one by one becoming out of order and not being able to be used. As things in the park break, they are not being repaired. There are many full time residents of the park and even though there are many rules, these residents and their children seem to disobey most of them with no consequence. We stayed here in a motorhome.
We were in the Premium Patio Sites which were very nice, but rather expensive. We couldn't really enjoy the patios since it rained every single afternoon during our stay. The sites were very clean. The campground guide that showed us to our site was very helpful. We had no problem with the Wi-Fi and my wife and I each accessed the Internet from our laptops several times a day. Apparently our sites were far enough from I-25 that we heard nothing at all. The train that was referenced would blow its whistle, but never before 6 AM so it was not a problem and it was on the other side of the river and fairly far away. We camped in a motorhome and would stay there again.
