Was a bit concerned about what the campground would be like as we drove through the surrounding neighborhood but were pleasantly surprised once we saw the campground. Neat, spacious spots and very clean and orderly. Crushed stone throughout the park. Yes, the desk clerk could be a bit more gracious but all other aspects of the stay were very good. All utilities worked, good Wi-Fi, cable TV. Will stay again if we are in need of an overnight spot as we pass through.
Well laid out - pleasant office check in. Would have preferred a more level site but my jacks did the job. Stayed next to the shower facilities Didn't use them but walked through. They were spotless plus free! TV reception was not good with antenna and don't have satellite. OK for an overnight stop and price was reasonable. Cafe serves breakfast and dinner during season. Rate was Good Sam
Entry is off a busy road - missed the sign on our first pass. When making reservations I specifically asked if the sites were relatively level - response was "you should be able to level without problem" - not true - we would have had to raise front wheels on our 40 footer off the ground - not something I do as that just invites possible damage to leveling jacks should the MH move. Rate was reasonable but there is a reason - nothing special about the park - strictly an over nighter but once burned we won't stay again - has to be something better down the road. Prior reviewer mentioned they plan to complain to Good Sam - think I'll do the same when I find the time.
We made phone reservations for a two night stay after finding that a supposedly better rated park in Landers was full. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find this relatively small but superbly maintained park, with basically all sites overlooking the local municipal golf course. Lots of early morning deer and Canadian geese visible during our stay. We found lots to do in the area: generally with suggestions from the owner, that we decided to stay for two more days. We had occupied a 50 amp site; however the site had been promised to an incoming guest, so we had to move to an almost identical site. However the “new” site had 30 amp service. Not an inconvenience as the day and night temperatures could easily be handled by one roof-top unit. No problem to move the MH as all we had to do was hit a couple buttons to retract the slides and leveling jacks. The owner was so apologetic for the so-called inconvenience that she wanted to comp one night of our stay. After some discussion I did get her to accept reduced payment for our stay but only after she insisted I accept a substantial gift of frozen fish!. Great laundry and Wi-Fi worked well! We have put on over 30,000 miles on our MH and have stayed at some horrible parks as well as very upscale so called Resorts. Not a park for children: no playground, pool, showers, etc. But a GREAT park for adults wanting a clean, quiet, spacious stay for a day or a month!
I fail to understand how Little Creel can advertise Wi-Fi being available. Take it from this camper that their system is essentially non-existent. You may get lucky and be able to log on BUT only if you park within about 50 feet of the router - at the office. Park also advertises picnic table available at each site. Ours didn't have one. When I mentioned our lack of a table the manager promised to get me one sometime before noon. When we left the next morning we were still without the promised table. Site to which we were assigned was pie shaped. Had to ask neighboring camper to move his tow vehicle so we could leave. Will not stay again.
While I agree with most of the positive comments provided by other recent Monte Verde campers I was very disappointed in the Wi-Fi system - VERY difficult to log on and then failing about every 5 minutes. To add insult to injury the password code was an unbelievable 26 characters long! Also disappointed in that Monte Verde owners don't accept credit cards - cash preferred but may accept a check after checking you out.
Have stayed here twice: once last summer and again in March, 2011. Both times was greeted with a sign on the door that they only deal in cash. They do have an ATM machine if you need to access your cash accounts. Also, for the second time I was also told that they had been having a "problem" with their Wi-Fi. Problem is: it doesn't work! Should I decide to stay again I will definitely call ahead to inquire about the Wi-Fi.
New owners trying very hard to improve this park. From long term residents I understand that previous owners let the park deteriorate badly. We found the owner to be friendly, the sites were very large, WiFi worked, got a few local TV stations using our rig's antenna. Conveniently located for anyone who wants to see Ouray, Silverton or Telluride but doesn't not want to take their big rigs to those locations. We hope that the new owner is successful in building back the clientel who used to enjoy this convenient location. We would stay here again should we ever return to the Montrose area.
Great value. Neat, clean with fair amount of shade. Level concrete sites. Off the main thoroughfares so relatively quiet. Camped in 40' motorhome with toad. Only stayed one night. Had a drive through site. Site was long enough to leave the toad connected without having the toad block the road. Would definitely stay here again. Both cable TV and Wi-Fi worked great!
Camped there after calling ahead to inquire about space for a 40 footer. Was told space was available. Upon turning off the main highway into the park just barely made contact with a pole supporting the park's billboard. Had to back up to gain clearance. Was told I was second MH to hit the sign that week. Area had received lots of rain in prior two days. Campground was very soggy and it was very hard to find a suitable space dry enough to avoid getting our MH stuck in the mud! Signs in the campground tell exiting campers to turn left around the park registration office. Not possible for a 40 footer to make that turn without backing up at least once. Very disappointed with the park and cannot recommend it for "big rigs"!
Neatly maintained - all pull throughs - all gravel roads and sites. Friendly staff. Only negative was that a train travels nearby but noise wasn't sufficient to waken us. Would definitely stay here again. Spent three days here seeing the Mammoth Cave as well as playing golf in the area. Cave City is fairly small with a number of fast food locations. For access to larger stores (Wal-Mart, etc.) city of Glasgow is only about 8 miles distant.
