A good Escapees park. All sites appear to be level with more than adequate width. While there are a number of short back-in sites, the "H" row has long back-ins with parking across the road in a field. We travel in a 45' motorhome and had no trouble fitting in the H-row back-in. The pull throughs are only available at the daily rate (not the weekly) and therefore are more expensive. Like most Escapees parks, the social activities at the park are fun and everyone (employees and campers) are friendly and outgoing. The campground is actually in Hollister, directly across the old bridge across the lake from Old Branson and the new upscale Branson Landing area.
Entering and exiting the campground itself was easy. Water pressure was excellent and electricity was good. This campground has a lot of potential, but the owner has succumbed to the temptation to populate his campground with a multitude of semi-permanent workers. Of the claimed 139 sites in this campground, I would estimate that less than 15 sites are available for short term larger RVs. This, in and of itself, is not bad except that there are either no rules, or the rules are ignored, concerning the number of vehicles that may be parked on each site. On most sites there are at least two in addition to the RV and in a large number of cases three and they are usually parked in a manner blocking the street. This makes it very difficult upon leaving to exit your site and get down the interior roads even though those roads are seemingly plenty wide. In addition, all kinds of extraneous appliances, spare tires, etc. are allowed to accumulate on sites where semi-permanent occupants are placed. I would stay here again, but the place needs some rules enforcement.
I guess the rates went up since May. The riverfront sites were $69 per night and the sites backing up to the highway were $59. Seventh day is free. Excellent sites and utility hookups. Can wash both your toad and motorhome without recrimination. Campground seems to stay only about half full probably due to the high rate structure. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Signage coming from the east is not large and entrance is easy to miss. Good location for outdoor activities and only 2 miles to downtown Pagosa.
The pull-throughs are those C-shaped pull-throughs, but some are large enough and straight enough for a big rig to pull into and out of without unhooking the toad. We were in Loop D and it appeared that the electrical had been recently redone. I was last in this park and this loop about four years ago and improvements have been made. Besides the electricity, the sites are now paved rather than gravel. There is NO shade here and it can get very hot. Arrived around 1:00 pm on a Tuesday without a reservation and there was plenty of site availability.
The nightly rate paid reflects an Escapees discount. The regular rate is $16. This campground is good for an overnight stop. It is located about 8 miles northwest of Guymon on Highway 64/412. No one mans the office you basically fill out a form and put your payment in an envelope and drop it through the door slot. The sites are grass and easy to enter and exit and the campground itself is easy to enter and exit. The electric was very solid at 120v with no variations.
This was an excellent park. Parking is on grass intermixed with gravel. Electricity was excellent, as was water pressure. Both open and shaded sites are available, with very easy entry and exit. Being a former mobile home park the sites are all large and flat. WARNING: All locations shown on maps on various websites or written addresses are incorrect. Call the campground for correct directions to the campground!!! There is a published 14 day limit, but I was told by two different people staying there that longer stays are possible. Weekly rate is $100 and monthly rate is $300.
