A really nice park close to everything; mall, restaurants, downtown, groceries, fuel, etc. Friendly hosts. Bike & walking trail that go on for miles. No sewer hook up, but a pump truck will come to your site for $10. Or, you can go to dump station no charge. All gravel sites and driveway, but driveway is getting paved next week.
Large RV park with fishing pond (fee required). Wide RV sites available. No shade. All gravel roads and pads, some with grass. Playground, heated pool. Friendly check-in. Apparently a popular place, very busy at this time (Sept. 8 - 11).
Nice campground, convenient access to Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park, Grand Lake, restaurants. Wildlife in Campground (moose roaming among sites and report of bear visits after dark) - keep dogs on leash! Our back-in site was very tight. Access to some are better than others. Gravel pad was level. Very friendly check-in.
This is the cleanest campground we have ever stayed in, and we've stayed in hundreds. Mountain and lake view is awesome. Bathrooms and showers are nicer than most hotels. Tiled walls and floors, shiny sinks and faucets. Camp loop is paved and wide two-way driveway. Site pad is concrete and wide. Many (not all) site picnic tables have shade covers. Fine gravel surface around table is raked and smoothed after each site is vacated and made ready for the new arrival. No trash anywhere. Camp hosts greet you and are very helpful.
This is a National Park, but not one of the better sites. We knew in advance that there was no water at the sites, but were surprised when we arrived with no water and no provision in the park to fill an RV water tank. Also, no dump station, so we only stayed one of the three nights we had reserved. We had a pull through site which was OK, but were lucky as many of the pull through were nothing more than a "pull over"... If you have slides, you will most likely have too little width. This campground was a disappointment, due to the water situation.
The pull-through sites are narrow and very close to the loop road. We had to put an orange cone out as our slide was right on the edge. No water hookups and all the water spigots in the park, including at the dump station, are plain ends - no threads for attaching hose to fill water tanks! Very inconvenient! Park Hosts were very nice and sympathetic regarding water connectors, but could only offer access to their spigot at the host site. Other than these two items, the park is nice and was a good stopover point for visits to Mesa Verde and other tourist sites.
We were travelling thru and decided to stay three nights on weekdays. Activities here are limited to boating, fishing, swimming. The State Park is surrounded by private lands, houses, boat storage units. Being desert, there is lots of sand. This is a good family getaway for those into boating and fishing. 25 miles to Tucumcari and the old route 66 and a decent history museum - $5.00 entry for adults - discount for seniors and children.
Distance to nearest town (Roswell) about 15 miles. The entrance road is about 4 miles, blacktop, and very bumpy. However, the park is very quiet and clean. Lots of room at the site. Campground has a great beach and enclosed adobe picnic pavillions that provide lots of shade and protection from the heat.
