Time for an update on this park. This park was built to accommodate the coal mine workers and was once packed full. But, when the mine closed, the place was basically deserted. Sites are gravel and weedy and pretty much level. Heated frost free water hookups and we had no problem with the electric fluctuating. Bathrooms and showers were clean and tidy. Dinosaur NM Canyon Recreational Area is 4 miles away and the Quarry is 22 miles away. There are a few full time residents, but their sites are neat and they are quiet. The only negative I would say is that it's kind of sad to see a place like this go unused. Nothing fancy but if we were in the area and needed a place to camp, we would come here again.
This was our second stay here and this place only gets better. The landscaping was much more inviting. Plenty of pull-through sites but the back-in sites in the back seem to be popular because they have an open view to a beautiful valley. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were very clean. The Trading Post has tons of beautiful things as well as some wonderful rocks and fossil specimens. We went to see Natural Bridges and Monument Valley while there. The host told us of a couple of Ancient Puebloan sites on the way that we should see and we were really glad he told us about them. He also gives private tours upon request. Started out staying a few days and ended up staying a week!
This is a brand new park. We were looking for a 50 AMP site that was convenient to Chaco Culture NP. The park is very clean with brand new bathrooms and showers. It is right off of Main Street, so there was some noise, but not too bad. Very close to gas station with convenience store and KFC. The only problem we had was that when we arrived, it seemed that nobody was around to register us. Finally another camper pointed us to where the host's site was. It was the second site down from the bathrooms. Didn't see a laundry room, but it looks like there are plans to expand the bathroom/shower building as well as adding more sites. This was a good place to stay to visit Chaco if you need 50 AMP.
We stayed here for a month visiting relatives. Needed to level but good hookups. Did not use bathrooms or showers. A high percentage of well kept seasonal sites and lots of kids, with a family atmosphere. Woods surrounding with an abundance of hiking trails. Weekends got pretty busy, some campers were up late and loud, lots of ATVs and golf carts, but all in all we enjoyed our stay there.
This is our second visit to this campground. Last year, we found this gem while having some dental work done in Florence (30 mins away). We were going to stay a month and ended up staying three. The owners and staff make you feel welcome and everyone is wonderful. The fishing lake has a lovely walking path and the campground is very clean and pet friendly. Packed sand with grass on all sites has excellent drainage and the owner's son even washed our rig for us for a great price! I-95 noise isn't too bad. The sites are wider than average and easy to pull in and out with good hookups. It's a shame the last reviewer felt the way they did. They're missing out. Recommend that if you are going to arrive in the middle of the night that you call ahead.
