Campground is nothing special but the value is in the location. Campground is located a half mile up a beautiful canyon with sheer sandstone walls. View back down the canyon includes several "monuments" just a few miles in the distance. We had a reservation but there was some question about whether it was for one or two days. Website for reservations was not working and I only got a confirmation number over the phone so its impossible to say who was right. It worked out fine in the end but could have been awkward.

Beautiful spot. Cottonwoods were just leafing out so we had shade and privacy. Sites are large and mostly level. Loop road could use some work but it is not really a problem. A bit of noise from the road but the traffic diminished to almost nothing during the night. Lots of geological features to explore nearby, including Comb Ridge which is quite impressive.

This is a former KOA that is being refurbished. There is lots of activity in the nearby gas and oil fields, there is an oil well on one corner of the property, so a good portion of the sites are medium term folks. That said, everyone was very careful about their speed within the facility and it was very quiet. We had a nice spot under a tree and slept very well.

There are two loops with hookups, Willow Creek and Blanco. Willow creek has a bit more foliage and the sites are more private. The sites in Blanco are larger, some are just huge, and more open. We stayed in Blanco over a weekend in April so only a few sites were occupied. The drought has taken its toll on the lake, it was almost dry, but there are a few trails for hiking and the setting is beautiful.

This is a gem of a campground, especially if you can get site #1 which is a bit isolated and looks out over the lake. There is a nice trail along the bluff overlooking the lake. The lake is surrounded by picturesque cliffs and mountains, a lovely setting. Well stocked general store, Bode's, just south of the lake has most anything you might need. Rate reflects senior pass.

Not much here but a place to park, but that is what we needed and it all worked. Nice folks at the "office" which also seems to be their home. It's all for sale and needs some care, but for an overnight it was ok. Shower/rest room is in a small vacant house that's left open. Had a bit of snow the night we were there and the lot turned to muck in the morning as it melted. A bit of gravel would help a lot but mud probably isn't a big worry where you get only 7.5in. of precipitation a year. There is a go-kart track in the same lot. Would not want to be there when that is operating.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet, easy to find location not far off the highway and close to the Taos visitor center and central Taos. Pull through sites are close together but long, so privacy is provided by staggering and bushes. No problem in the off season. Drives are paved in 2 in. stone making them a bit rough for walking. Very nice store with local art and crafts. Hardware stores nearby and supermarket on the way into town.

Nice park with a few electric sites. We are usually here in the off season so have always found a site. Quiet place with a dark sky for watching stars. Some of the sites are far from level but most require only a minor adjustment.

Nice campground in a beautiful location. The museum is really very good. I found it more extensive and informative than the museum at Window Rock. It is far enough from I-40 that there is little road or train noise. The only downside is the blowing sand if it is windy. Staff is really helpful and friendly.

This campground appears to have evolved from something less formal. One way loops make it almost impossible to back into some sites. No hookups but a good dump station with water to fill your tank. Great location to start a tour of the south rim overlooks. Pleasant place with lots of mature cottonwoods to provide shade. Short walk to the visitor center. Navaho parks has taken this over and now charges a fee. Cash only, so stop at the ATM before you arrive.

The campground is excellent but don't miss the archeological features. Not as complete as some of the more famous ruins but lots of interesting shards that folks find and leave on a rock for others to enjoy. A tour of Homolovi II is worth the short drive. Not much shade but the trees are growing, so a few sites have enough to screen a bit of the sun. Sites are paved and mostly level. Camp host was most helpful. She came to our site to sign us in so we did not have to drive up to the visitor center.

Nice place in the winter. Local geology is fascinating. Some nice hikes, but don't be tempted to poke around in the abandoned mines. We usually camp in the C-D-E areas which are electric only. Few of these are really level but we have leveling jacks and they cope with the slope easily. OHV trails are close and could be annoying if in heavy use. So far we've never been bothered. Restroom-showers are basic but clean. Watch the wind forecast, it can really blow here at times.

Very convenient location near I-5 and relatively quiet. We missed this place while it was closed. New owners are very enthusiastic, helpful and making many improvements. Pool is open, dog park and most important, everything works. We stop her on most of our trips south. Nothing fancy but a good one night stop over. Can be a bit dusty. A better surface on the lot would be welcome.

This park is the most compatible mix of permanent, semi-permanent, and overnight tenants I've run across. It is a bit pricy, but it's easy to find and quiet, though not far from I-40. The camp store is well stocked with incidentals and RV related items, but there is also shopping nearby for for other items. The sites are close but shrubbery provides some privacy. Rate includes all taxes.

Nice park with clean facilities and friendly staff. We took a rest day here and spent much of it watching gliders take off about 50 yards from our campsite. Nice stop on the way east before hitting the desert.
