For this price, it had better be 10/10. Key West was on my bucket list and I was lucky to get a near to last minute reservation. Minimum stay of 5 nights with a reservation made more than 30 days prior to arrival. It's about 10 miles out from KW, but I don't know if there's anything closer. The sites at this resort are privately owned so you can rent when the owner is away. Nice privacy between sites due to landscaping. All waterfront sites, which we had, have docks and Tiki huts. The elaborateness of each depending on how much money the owner has sunk into his/her lot. It was a lovely place that I wouldn't mind returning to, but it's not in my budget. One big distraction is that the power lines are not buried and are unsightly, but you should be looking at the water anyway.
Friendly office staff, nice neighbors, good shade. But the sites are laid out in a mishmash, such that when we backed in our rear end was a couple of feet from the side of the neighbor's MH. (Think T-bone.) The sites are also close together and the shade trees are a mixed blessing. It took a *lot* of maneuvering to get backed in so we could extend our slides and avoid trees. We ended up with one side on the concrete pad. We didn't use the Wi-Fi - I don't think it was even offered. Price reflects a Good Sam discount.
What a dump. This place looks like 98.5% permanent resident with rigs ranging from ancient to old. Sites are extremely narrow as are the roads which easily accommodate the numerous trikes seen all over, but a motor vehicle with difficulty. We called the day before arrival and gave the phone-answerer all the contact info and when we called again the afternoon of arrival to say we'd be in after 5 PM. We were news to that phone-answerer. No 50 amp service at our site. The permanent rig next door had begun to use our site for overflow storage that had to be moved before we could pull in. There was not enough room length-wise to straighten our 5th wheel on the site and pulling out in the morning will prove to be an adventure. Find somewhere else to go; $38 for this?
This is not a resort; there are minimal facilities. We're also not thrilled with their cash-only policy. As noted by the prior reviewer this place has a lot of permanent residents but overall it's clean and well maintained and the folks we had contact with were friendly. It's ok for a night but I wouldn't want to stay any longer.
This is a campground we'd love to return to and spend several days. It's clean, nicely maintained, reasonably priced, and in a beautiful setting. There are loooong pull-through sites for really big rigs - our 49-foot truck and trailer had plenty of room to spare. If we'd stayed a while we might have taken the trouble to do a bit of leveling, but for a quick overnight stay it was fine. The rate shown is for water and electric only. Sewer hookup adds $3. This place is a bargain.
Very nice, clean place. Everyone was friendly, and the woman in the office was so knowledgable about every site that she chose one for our rig that we would easily get into and out of. We had to do some leveling but not enough of a hassle to knock this down one star. We'd gladly return here with the grandkids, especially, as there's a nice pool (closed for the season when we arrived) and other things for kids to do. There are lots of permanent renters here but their sites are well-maintained and the place was quiet and peaceful. Make sure you walk across the road to get farm-fresh eggs at the house there.
Initially uncooperative office staff when we called to complain about blasting music - just no response. At the third call, we finally got someone to tell us the music was coming from outside the park and had to shut down by 10 pm. There was no real feeling of welcome, just a recitation of "don't do this." Wi-Fi is supposed to be available, but we couldn't connect, a ding of one star. One of my biggest complaints is a park advertising Wi-Fi and not delivering. I consider Wi-Fi a utility, just like electricity, and it should be available and reliable. The place was ok and we'd probably stay here again for want of someplace better.
Not a destination place, but perfectly good for an overnighter, and you can't beat the rate. Very nice lady in the office led us to our site, and when she came to the door of our vehicle to speak to us and saw the iPad on the seat, immediately went back to the office to get the WI-FI code. We couldn't get it to work, however, which dings this review one star. The park was clean and the gravel site was level, better than in more costly places we've been. We also got a coupon for a free night's stay within a year, which we really hope to use. Tucumcari is a blast from the past and needs more exploring. The rate reflects cash payment.
This is a nice park we would definitely visit again. Parking sites were level asphalt and had a nice grass area adjacent, albeit just a little narrow and close to your neighbor. Restrooms/showers were clean. The women's room had an odd set up of having to walk through one or two shower and dressing stalls to reach the last one in line. While the shower itself was curtained off the dressing area had no privacy. The men's shower was more or less communal, harkening back to high school gym class. I'm glad I'm a girl. The pool and hot tub were already closed for the season; a disappointment after a long day on the road. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable, so props for that! The rate reflects off-season and a Good Sam discount.
This is an ok campground, but maybe not one I'd stay at again if I had a choice. I thought it somewhat overpriced and the restrooms/showers, while acceptably clean, could have used a bit more elbow grease. The best thing about it is the beautiful cottonwoods that give plenty of shade. The Wi-Fi, always my sticking point, was fairly strong and reliable. I don't know how good it would be if they had a full house, as they were pretty empty when we were here. The pool looked inviting but closed at 5pm, as did the office, several hours before dusk.
This park is in a good location if you want to visit historic Butte, or take the waters at the hot springs next door, a very nice, affordable respite from the road. The grounds were clean and the sites spacious and nice and long for pull-throughs. No shade to speak of. My big complaint is the Wi-Fi. It's no longer a luxury amenity but, in my opinion, a utility. If a CG doesn't want to offer it, fine, then I will expect nothing. But when it's advertised: it should be on, strong, and reliable. Here, the signal was weak and I never could get a page to load. I couldn't care less about cable, but give me my Internet. My score would be a point or two higher if the Wi-Fi had been good. Price reflects Good Sam discount.
The best I can say is it was cheap and close to the interstate. When we checked in there was one clerk and a line of people needing help for the campground and the motel, so no information was offered about restrooms, Wi-Fi, or anything. It was a place to plug in and the price was right, but I wouldn't seek this place out for any longer than one night.
Well, it was $23 a night. The restrooms and showers were very clean and the staff was friendly. However, there was no shade that we saw, gravel and blacktop sites only, and no Wi-Fi as far as we could tell. Keeping in mind this is an RV park for a casino, it makes sense that there aren't going to be amenities that lure you away from the tables. It gave us a place to plug in for the night, but it isn't a place I'd want to stay for any longer than that.
We stayed here a couple of weeks while visiting family, and got one free night for every 5 we stayed. This park is clean and nicely maintained. Sites are spacious and clean, on gravel. We had a bit of a problem hooking up the waste hose to the sewer because the connection wasn't high enough out of the ground to allow screwing it in all the way, but we managed. There's a large sandy play area with swings and some climbing things, but very rudimentary, so we ended up taking the grands about a mile and a half away to a really nice community playground. The pool here is excellent - clean, heated, and big enough to accommodate all the people we ever saw there. One odd thing about this park is they make you unhook and rehook your towed vehicle at the entrance to the park, not at the site. This makes it difficult to make an early, fast getaway on your departure day because you have to stop to do this, not being able to hook up the night before. Finally, wi-fi is somewhat slow and unreliable and not available throughout the park. If you're close to the office you may be able to get it, but not in the far reaches. I consider wi-fi to be a utility, so having spotty coverage is like saying you have to be close to the office to get electricity.
This is a meticulously maintained park out in the country a bit but well worth diverting off the highway. We came here immediately after the WE Fest closed just down the road. The campground there was a pigsty, but you'd never know this campground had been at maximum capacity for a week. It was pristine. There are lots of activities for the family, including two very nice fenced play areas with the regular playground equipment plus many riding toys; volleyball; ladderball; horseshoes; pedal boats; mini golf; a .5 mile walking trail; exercise room; and a community room with borrow/leave library. It's family-owned by some very nice folks. Spacious sites are grass that are in great shape. I don't know how they keep it so nice. Many trees to provide shade and we saw new plantings to make the shade even better. We would definitely come here again.
Nice folks, clean park, good facilities, close enough to the highway. We were lucky enough to find this park just as it was opening for the season. There aren't a lot of choices around Madison, which sometimes can lead to pretty crummy parks, but this one made for a pleasant stay. The owners and employees were making improvements to the office/game room to better accommodate teenagers when we stayed and, while the pool wasn't yet open, it was really nice-looking and well maintained. Traffic is one-way throughout the park, I think making things safer for walkers and kids on bikes. We don't use cable, but Wi-Fi is important, and it was good. The laundry room seems to be the one part of the park that hasn't been worked on recently. The machines are older and it's just kind of tired looking, but everything was working.
We stayed here just after they opened for the season. It was just ok as a base camp to visit our kids, but I would avoid staying here again if possible. Lots of permanent residents with tacky-looking, unfinished insulation around their trailers. We saw staff twice, once to pay and a week later when they finally brought us our receipt. No Wi-Fi. We don't use cable TV so I can't speak to that. The laundry/rest room/tornado shelter is all in the same building, which was still closed from the prior season. There is a playground but it's skeletal. No swings on the frame and huge muddy pits where the swings would be, a climbing structure with no slide down, and a rickety see-saw. Nothing for small children. I eventually strollered the grandkids a couple of miles away to a wonderful public park in a residential area.
10 out of 10, no question. You won't find bells and whistles here, no spa, no pool, no game room. You will find a friendly, likable owner and a clean, clean place, all at a more than reasonable cost. The owner could easily charge another $10 a night, simply based on supply and demand. The restrooms were so clean they might have been brand new: not a speck of dust or splashed water or sign of use anywhere. I actually hated to mess it up. Also, the wi-fi is strong and reliable. While you're in Marengo, make sure you have breakfast at the Doose Cafe, right on the town square. Tell them the Winnebago people sent you.
We arrived in the dark and were desperate for a place with electricity, so at that point it didn't really matter what the park was like. By light of day, though, it was better than we expected. It's an older park with gravel sites and not much room between them, but it was clean enough. I'm not ranking it higher because of the noise due to its proximity to the freeway and the fact that the restroom/shower facilities had no lock on the door.
We could practically move here permanently, that's how great this place is. Friendly staff, immaculate grounds and facilities, and easy access to Golden and Denver make this a park you'll want to check into for more than one night. The pool wasn't open yet for the season, but the clubhouse was open and enticing with several nice games tables and a small but good fitness room. The showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities looked new and were very well maintained and clean. We didn't even have to haul our trash to the dumpster - just put it at the edge of our site and it was picked up daily. Even the Wi-Fi, a common complaint of mine, was reliable. We're not TV watchers, but were told that an antenna on our motorhome would pick up about 30 channels. Our two nights here were much too short and we look forward to returning.
This park is in a very nice location along the Eagle River, although it could be noisy during warmer weather when windows are open because it's right next to the freeway. Waterfront sites are available for tents only, and sewer hookups are not available on any of the pull-through sites, only on the back-ins. There is a dump onsite though. No Wi-Fi service available. There's a nice bike/walking path you can access a short distance from the park that goes all the way to Gypsum. The lack of sewer connections, no cable and Wi-Fi, and noise from the freeway keep me from rating this park higher.
Not a place you'd want to make an extended stay, but it has acceptable facilities. Wi-Fi is inconsistent. We don't use cable so don't care about it, but Wi-Fi is important and we rarely get decent service. All that being said, we'd stop here again because nice, nice folks run this place.
Rustic. Friendly front-office staff. Sites were not difficult nor the lanes too narrow for our 31-footer with towed car to maneuver around or get into, a difficulty some other campers have had. Best part? The best Wi-Fi service we've ever had.
We liked this park so much we plan on coming back this winter for an extended stay. Everything's clean and well-maintained. There's no shade, but there's shrubbery between the sites for some privacy, and the lots are spacious, as far as an RV park can have spacious sites. Our motorhome sat on gravel and there's a concrete patio slab in good condition, with a picnic table. Fires are allowed in a screened fire ring (bring your own), but you have to use pressed wood logs. The pool and laundry room were immaculate. Long-term inhabitants' trailers/motorhomes may not be older than 10 years old, so you won't see the tired ones that appear to be settling into the earth at other parks. There's easy access to I-17, making it a quick trip to downtown Phoenix. My only complaint was the Wi-Fi service: despite several connections to choose from, I could never get a page to load.
We liked this place. Nice shade, good amount of space, wi-fi was good, and it was a nice walkable distance to the downtown tourist area. The pool house was being rebuilt after a storm demolished it a couple of months before, so the pool was closed, but it was obvious they were actively working on it. We got a 10% discount because my husband is a veteran. That's nice. We would definitely stay here again. (Just wish it was on the beach.) Hint: if you go, have breakfast at Pig n' Pancake. Any wait is worth it.
Well, it's clean and the gravel sites are level. Each site has a small concrete patio in good condition. But there is no privacy between sites, no cable, dogs are limited to 25 pounds, no outside fires are allowed, there's no table, and there's not an inconsiderable amount of road noise. The real kicker, though, is that the advertised wi-fi is available only if your site is in the two rows closest to the clubhouse. Honest to Pete! Nobody tells you this until your RV is leveled, water, sewer, and electric are connected, sliders are out, and your privacy curtain is up. Oh, and after you call the office five times because the phone doesn't get answered.
There must be a Murphy's Law about being consigned to a campground from hell for days on end, yet having to leave Paradise after only one night. Birmingham RV is the former and we're stuck here for three nights. Old and rundown, tiny, narrow, muddy lots that boast patios made of cracked and broken concrete slabs, nonexistent pull throughs, nowhere to turn around, noisy neighbors, marginal neighborhood, and expensive to boot. Did I mention that our fresh water hookup is under another person's trailer, so anything dripping off his rig in all the rain we're having is going right on to the source of our water supply? This place would be out of business if it weren't in an area of such high demand.
Nice place with wider spaces than we've encountered recently, in fact enough room to pull the car in next to the motorhome (which sits on a concrete slab). There's also ample room for a picnic table and fire ring. Additionally, there's greenery between the spaces, giving some nice privacy. The park is very clean. We didn't use the restrooms but the laundry room was clean and all three washers and six dryers were in good condition. The pool area looked good, but we didn't use it. There is some highway noise as 101 is not far away. Also, it's a hike to the beach. Office staff said a 15-minute walk and I'm a walker but it took longer than that. There are also a couple of hiking trails up into the hills behind the park. Unless you're an Olympian, go the "easy" route, but even so, you'll wonder how they define "easy." Tent sites are on the road in and are some of the nicest I've seen. Just like with the motorhome area, there's greenery between the sites and where you pitch your tent has been leveled and had a nice layer of sand put down. Clean, like the rest of the place. I think $70 is on the pricey side, especially for a campground that's not on the beach, but we had to have Wi-Fi and this seemed to be our only option around. The Wi-Fi could be stronger.
We pulled into the fairgrounds and saw motorhomes and trailers practically on top of each other, but breathed a sigh of relief when we realized they were in the long-term storage area. But, as they say, however... the campground was almost as bad. It's one big gravel patch with very close quarters. For some reason the 50-amp area is grassy but the lots are still close together. There are a lot of long-term residents here; we were told they're construction workers employed at a dam being built nearby. Still, the place is quiet and clean. It's just not a place you want to park your home for any more time than is necessary.
This isn't a place you want to stay for any length of time because it's a concrete slab and the lots are narrow. There is no shade. However, it was clean and the woman at the front desk was very nice and made sure we knew about the game room (pool table, large card table, take-one-leave-one book exchange), and how to get through the gates via a code, etc. The free Wi-Fi is password protected and we didn't realize we needed a separate code for each device we wanted to get online with. The fee included $3 tax.
We were very happy with this campground, and I'm giving it 9 out of 10 instead of the full 10 because there's no Wi-Fi at the individual campsites, only on the deck behind the store/cafe which is closed during the off-season. Marty, the owner, arrived as we were trying to figure out where the pull-through sites were and led us around to give us our pick. We pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and Marty brought us a nice load of kindling and firewood, gratis, so we could enjoy the evening outside. We'd definitely return for a longer visit at any time of year.
