We have stayed here several times while fishing in the area. This is a great campground and you will enjoy staying here. You can reserve a pull-through site or a back-in site that overlooks the beautiful White River. They have a good laundry, 2 washers, 2 dryers, $1.00 each. There is also a nice recreation room adjacent to the office. The manager is very accommodating and helpful. The campground has gravel but dust is not a problem. Sites are very open for good satellite reception and there is a lot of space between sites.

This is a small campground, but very nice and very convenient for visiting Roswell. The owner was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. You will enjoy meeting her. Campground is clean and well maintained. It is level and has trees that provide good shade. There are two pull-through sites. There is some road noise, but not significant. Would highly recommend staying here.

This is an excellent park - one of the best. We don't travel with children so we can't comment on children's amenities. The sites are spacious and well spaced, and there are many trees affording privacy and shade. We stayed here while visiting the Crater of Diamonds State Park. In fact, the office for the campground is located inside the Crater of Diamonds park visitors center. You can walk to the state park from the campground if you want, but we drove. You get pretty tired after a hard day of finding diamonds and a ride back to the camper feels good! A caution - this park fills up quickly so make reservations well in advance. Campers who pulled in after we did were turned away because they had no reservations and the campground was fully booked. Our back-in site was reasonably level (even though the park is in the Arkansas hills) and had a picnic table, grill and a fire pit. The picnic table was located on a concrete pad. Checkout time was 3 PM which was also nice. Our only negative comment - the beautiful, plentiful trees make satellite reception all but impossible and the campground does not have cable. So, turn off the TV and enjoy this beautiful area. We stayed at site 14.

We chose this park partly because of their reviews but mostly because of their location. They are situated approximately 16 miles to Carlsbad Caverns NP and a little farther (on the same road) to Guadalupe Mountains NP. It's hard to beat this location if you are sightseeing in this area. When you enter the park, you see some very small, cramped sites in the first two rows (occupied perhaps by long term guests?). But then as you drive to the back part of the park, the sites become much larger and are more spacious. We were pleasantly surprised. The office staff was pleasant and the park was clean and appeared to be well maintained. We don't travel with children so we don't look for swimming pools, miniature golf courses or McDonald's playgrounds.

We stayed at this park after having some work done on our fifth wheel at Camping World, which is literally adjacent to the park. The park is very flat and there is ample space between sites. The park is located on a dirt lot so there is some dust but, after all, this is desert country so you have to expect some dust. So, please drive slowly in the park so you don't create dust for other campers. We only stayed one night, after our camper repairs were completed, but we would stay here again.

It is hard to over-compliment this campground. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites are spacious with lots of trees between you and your neighbor. In some sites there are so many trees you cannot see your neighbor, yet the trees generally are not so tall that you worry about one falling on your camper. We had a picnic table mounted on a concrete patio and surrounded by a wooden privacy fence (site 24). Campground is very convenient for visiting Silver City and surrounding attractions. We look forward to returning to this wonderful campground.

This is a very nice RV park, level, clean, well maintained and very close to (in our opinion) the best entrance to Big Bend NP. Yes, the campground is mostly dirt but this is the desert so don't expect palm trees and waterfalls! Campsites are very roomy - no problems with being too close to your neighbors. The office manager was very nice to us, but seemed a little grumpy with the lady who was in line in front of us. Not sure what that was about. We look forward to staying here again.

We did not like this park. The laundry was completely inadequate. The laundry room was very small, there were no tables and no racks to hang your laundry and there were only 2 washers and 2 dryers, not nearly enough for this size park. The owners were unfriendly and not at all helpful (if you don't like being there, sell the park to someone who would enjoy owning it). One day the office unexpectedly close for the entire afternoon with no notice or explanation. The sign on the door said they would return at 3 PM, but no one showed up at 3. Instead they strolled in somewhere around 6 PM. We asked about filling our propane tank. We were told someone would come to our site in a cart and pick up the tank (a 30 lb tank) to have it filled. They never showed up and we bought propane at another park. OK, its not much money, but why would you turn down a sale? We would not stay here again.

Very nice park, flat, wooded or open sites, next to highway 31. Some road noise from highway 31, but was not an issue for us. Wifi was very good (from our open site), but be cautious the wifi is not secure. You are at risk if you transmit passwords (email, bank accounts, etc.) or if you pay bills or conduct Internet banking. Wifi signal strength from the open sites was excellent. Speed was excellent also, at times reaching 104 mbps. Don't know about wifi speed or connection from the wooded sites. Good laundry, 4 washers and 3 dryers.

Overall this is a nice campground. It is pretty remote but that aspect is good. The sites are level with lots of space in between. Caution, the wifi is not secure. You should be concerned if you transmit any passwords or other confidential information. Wifi speed was slow and signal strength was very low. Fairly good cable television.

As other reviewers have indicated, if you stay in the back areas (the wooded areas), drive to your proposed site before pulling your RV back into the woods. The turns are tight, roads are narrow and the trees are close to the roads. We stayed in the front area for satellite access so the tight turns of the wooded areas were not an issue for us. The sites in the front area are level, spacious and have good satellite access. Wifi is free but poor. We had poor signal strength and we were a stone's throw from the office (where I assume the wifi server is located). Laundry was reasonably clean and well maintained. There were 3 washers and 2 dryers. A very loud train goes by a couple of times a day but for us it was not a problem. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. The cable television system is excellent, 67 channels. Be aware that satellite service will not be available in the wooded area in back.

This is a very nice campground. It is located on the banks of the Wisconsin River and is very near the town of Spring Green (a very nice town to visit). Our satellite dish would not work because of the trees and the camp does not have cable, a drawback. Wifi connection was good. Signal strength was good and speed was good. Speed commonly reached 54 mbps. However the wifi connection was not secure. With all the concern about information theft, parks should provide secure wifi connections. The excuse that "we've never had any problems" simply doesn't work. If there had been problems it is likely the park would not have known about them. Come on park owners, get into the information (theft) age. The employee at the office when we checked in was very grumpy. Not sure why park owners put up with grouchy employees. They represent your park.

Finally we found a park with secure wifi. However, when we tried to use the wifi to get to the Internet we found the connection was practically worthless. There is so little bandwidth that almost nothing can be done. The connection logged off every 30 seconds to one minute, then logged back on. This wife connection is absolutely horrible. We don't understand why camp owners would install a wifi system then not purchase enough bandwidth to make it usable. Speed would consistently lower to 5.5 mbps and continually disconnect then reconnect. The system is so slow you could cook dinner waiting for the next web page to open. And, before the owners complain about this review - no we were not trying to download large files, no we were not streaming video. We were simply trying to open small (less that 10k) emails. Again we cannot say enough bad things about this Internet connection. Laundry - very spacious room, 9 washers and 9 dryers, however the cost was $2.50 per machine per load. Far too expensive. We would not stay here again. There are several other nice parks in this area and we would stay with one of them. Park owners - more and more of us have the need to connect to the Internet, to pay bills, to conduct Internet banking, to access email. Please install adequate systems to allow these activities. The system you have now is completely unacceptable.

This is an excellent park located just south of the Highway 76 "Strip". We did not use the Wi-Fi because they do not have a secure network: too much concern about personal information being available to others. Had the wireless been secure we would have given the park a "10" rating. The park has very nice shaded sites as well as open sites for those with satellite dishes. A note to our fellow campers: we camped next to a motor home that was parked in space G1. Each morning the lady from the motor home made personal telephone calls while standing very close to our bedroom at 6:30 AM. She woke us up two mornings in a row but before we could complain to the park, they (fortunately) left. Come on: show some courtesy to your fellow campers and keep your noise in your own RV. Don't wake up your neighbors with your loud conversation.

We loved staying at this park. It is located in a very flat meadow just south of Montrose. The park is clean and very well maintained. The site layout provides ample space between RVs. The camp hosts were very friendly and always helpful. The entrance to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is about 20 or so miles NW and the San Juan mountains are approximately 20 miles South.

We called Riverview the day before we wanted to stay primarily because it is a Passport America park. We were told by phone that they could only reserve a site with a Good Sam discount but that when we arrived they would give us the PA discount. Upon arrival the office refused to honor the PA discount. The office wasn't even apologetic for the misrepresentation by their employee, they just said "No PA discount". Had we not just driven 8 hours we would have gone to another park. Wi-Fi is slow (5.5 Mbps) and disconnects from the Internet frequently. The park does not appear well maintained. Park has many full timers. Some sites have reasonable spacing, but most, including the pull throughs, are simply too tight. There is little space between the slides of RVs in adjoining sites. Overall, the sites are very cramped, with a few exceptions. The park offers "river" view back in sites. The "river" is more like a stream but it doesn't matter anyway since the bank is so overgrown with trees the view is mostly obscured. Avoid this place.

They recently installed a T1 and the WiFi communication is excellent. We had either excellent or very good signal strength and speeds typically between 24 meg and 36 meg. Speed would drop to 8 meg but only under heavy usage. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Most sites are very long with plenty of side space. Well maintained, nice shade trees. Park is graveled but there is very little dust because of the granite gravel used by the park. Camp does not have cable TV and this is the only drawback. We would have rated the park a 10 if cable had been available.
