We stayed here 6 weeks. The setting in the Rockies is beautiful. Few trees, but we prefer sun and views. There is good fishing 10 minutes drive away. There is a nearby county road that provides good, lightly trafficked walking or biking. Sites are reasonably spaced. Management is friendly and helpful. There is a pleasant community room. The park is 12 minutes drive to WalMart and 16 minutes from downtown Salida. We plan to return in a month for another few weeks.
New management has cleaned up the park. It is still rather Plain Jane, but tidy and clean. A rather large fee is charged for the dump station. About a block from a WalMart, easy walk. The Wi-Fi worked fairly well. Nice owners, easily reached by phone.
This wasn't waterfront, but our campground (Lion Beach) had a great view down onto the lake and bordering buttes/mountain range. High sandy desert with scrub, pretty if you like desert! Each site has a covered table. We preferred Lion Beach, even though it has only 30 amp electricity, because of the great views (on northwest end) and spacious sites, each having a desert willow tree to add shade. Friendly staff. In late October-early November, weather was fabulous. Good for daily walks or bicycling. Not much doing in Elephant Butte or nearby Truth or Consequences, but we weren't here for towns!
We really enjoyed this park. Price based on weekly rate. All facilities were very good. In October, weather was beautiful. Fishing in the lakes is a bit pricey, but provides a nice walk-to recreation. The walk around the two lakes provided a good morning walk--about 35 minutes brisk walking. Casino is OK, if you like casinos. Roadrunner train stops at the park and takes you to Santa Fe or Albequerque for $6 round trip. A good place to stay if you want a peaceable week, or as a base for day trips to Santa Fe or Albuquerque.
This was a find! Small pretty grassy park beside the San Juan River, most sites have shade trees, all have colorful picnic tables. Three or four riverside sites have electric & water but no sewer, $5/day more. Friendly owner. Downside: no cell phone or wi-fi coverage. Upside: quiet, peaceful, lovely with river, trees, rocky plateaus. Fishing in river onsite or in lake about 8 miles away. Decent restaurant with wi-fi a few miles down the road (Abe's). Officially in Blanco, actually in Archuleta community close to Navajo Dam State Park, between mile markers 6 and 7 on Hwy 511.
After the first night, we dry camped. For $17, you can't beat it. Pretty setting, although in the middle of Fairbanks you feel you are in the country: woods, river, and quiet. Walking distance to grocery stores. Easy access to everything in Fairbanks. We used this campground for 5 nights, and would return.
The location is great--walking distance to most Spit businesses, just across from the marina. Hosts were nice and helpful. Basic sites. The store included RV supplies, and free borrowing of DVDs. Would definitely stay here again.
The great thing about this park is its proximity to downtown Anchorage. We were able to walk into town for everything we wanted to do. Spaces were somewhat close, but who cared? Location, location, location.
This is a pretty park, with shade trees, grass and wildflowers, great view of the lake. If your site is on the lake side, you are 150-200 yards from the lake for fishing or swimming. Restrooms are poor, no doors on stalls, open to sky, lots of dead and live June bugs; the handicapped restrooms/showers are very adequate and cleaner, and can be locked while you are using them. Staff friendly and helpful. And the price is right! We will definitely stay here again.
A pleasant park in attractive countryside. On registering at the park entrance we were told to drive around and select whichever site we wanted. There were 2 U-turns involved in the drive around. One was too tight for our 37ft 5th wheel and we finished up trapped against a 4ft boulder on one side and thick protruding tree branches on the other. Lots of help from other park guests and much backing and to and from and branch trimming allowed us to extricate ourselves about an hour later. Because of this U-turn we were unable to access all the sites involved in that road loop. Many of the other sites were too small for us. Eventually we found a site that suited us and spent a pleasant 13 days there. We didn't fish here - the AZ license was rather expensive for out-of-state people - but we learned that those who had fished had good success. Enjoyed the wildlife - deer would wander thought the park in the evenings - probably going to the lake for water. Lots of birds if you're into that - we're not! The park was full for the 2 weekends we stayed there. The park does not accept reservations so we'd suggest arriving early if you want to ensure getting a good site - especially if you have a long rig. If you're full time (as we are) and you plan to stay here for some time, we'd recommend being fully stocked for supplies before arriving. The nearest store is 10 miles away in Patagonia and is outrageously expensive. The next closest store is a Safeway and Wal-Mart in Nogales about 17 miles away. We enjoyed our stay here but probably wouldn't stay in this park again.
Attractive park with tall trees, shade, spacious sites, 5 minutes walk to river, 7 minutes walk to town. Fort Langley is charming with pretty houses, shops, restaurants, pub. Site alongside river very pretty. Really enjoyed our stay here, would recommend it to anyone. We were in 37 ft toy hauler.
Shady park like an oasis in a mini-canyon that protects it from highway noise. Spaces fairly close, but still had a campground look and feel. Excellent Wi-Fi connection. Very pleasant, wouldn't have minded staying another day or two.
The campground was nice--attractive, well maintained--with courteous and helpful staff. But we had to lug our laptop and printer all the way across the campground to use it--that got very old. Also, our campsite was right beside the train tracks, and the train was so loud it literally shook the trailer. If you can get a site away from the train tracks, and don't want to use Wi-Fi, it is a nice place. The PLUS is that it has easy access to mass transit into town.
Beautiful setting, spacious sites, plenty of drive-throughs. Has a fast-flowing green river, with mountains surrounding. Showers are $1 for 4 minutes. The Rockport Pub is a plus, not a minus: quiet, great individual pizzas piled with toppings, friendly owner, free WiFi that extended to our RV site: we highly recommend it. Would definitely stay here again.
Spacious sites, well-watered manicured green lawns, on the banks of the Columbia River, mountains on both sides, generous scattering of small-to-medium shade trees--pretty. Close to Chelan, and to Chelan Lake. $25 would seem high for a park with no sewer hookups, if it were not for the amenities of the adjacent day-use section: boat ramp, tennis courts, sand volleyball court, swimming beach. Didn't notice any road noise.
Lovely little park, with tall shady trees; able to set up satellite dish by the river. Nice trail for walking. Helpful camp host and rangers. Ranger says there is fabulous salmon/steelhead fishing in July: park is full then. Close enough for day trip to waterfalls and Mt Hood. Would have rated the park higher if it had sewer connections, had more facilities, and if it was closer to town/grocery/conveniences.
Nice little park, beside a fast-running river, fishing is possible when river is lower in water. Owners are extremely helpful and friendly. Restroom/showers are immaculate, pretty; women's has toiletries laid out, nicely decorated, great showers. Less than 30 miles easy driving to Wallowa Lake and tramride; passing through 2 nice little towns, Joseph and Enterprise. Beautiful countryside.
Great management - very friendly and helpful. Somewhat spartan park, but all the facilities were first class - especially a small store that provides a lot of basic RV needs. We'd definitely stay here again.
A beautiful desert campsite with lots of foliage that feels like it's in the middle of nowhere (there's a small town with a Walmart etc. a couple of miles away). On arrival, the camp warden gave us a map and told us to drive around and select our own site. We chose a concreted site on high ground with a grand view of a mountain range 5 miles to the west. There's lots of room between adjacent campsites which are randomly scattered around rather than arranged in serried ranks like most RV parks. The day temperatures were close to 80F but the nights were chilly. Firewood was on sale by the showers/toilets (which were excellent) on the honor system at $5 a pop, so in the evenings we loaded the campsite's brazier, lit a fire, wrapped up and drank beer (me) and wine(wife) and listened to classical music. This was about 6 weeks into a 9-week trip. We had visited small towns and played hard at being tourists. It was lovely to do nothing for a few days and this was an excellent place in which to do nothing. We'd definitely stay here again.
This park is close to I-20 with easy access to and from I-20, but sufficiently distant from it that road noise is not bothersome. We arrived after dark and found the park to be well lit and the angled pull-through parking slots facilitated ingress and eventual egress. There's plenty of grass-covered space between adjacent slots. The park is functional, well-maintained, clean and litter free. Major renovations are under way and are almost complete. The roads have been repaired and are fine. The laundry room and ladies' showers/ bathrooms have been completely remodeled; the men's equivalents are almost finished. I found no resemblance between the park in its current condition to that described in reviews posted in 2005. I strongly suggest that those earlier reviews be utterly ignored. I would stay here again. The park is under fairly new management, represented by Brenda and David, who are friendly and hospitable hosts. Their hospitality extended to us even after we left. When preparing to leave I had tossed a trash bag into a dumpster. The next day when we arrived home I learnt that my wife had stuffed all our laundry into that bag! A quick call to Brenda resulted in our laundry being retrieved and sent to us.
