We spent a night here on our way to the Verde Valley. It is an older, rustic park with lots of mature pine trees. It's like camping in the woods, but in the city. The temporary guests are separated from the full-time residents. The sewer hookup is curbed with bright yellow paint, and has a brightly painted yellow steel rod with which to remove the sewer cap (so you don't have to pick it up with your hands). It is nearly impossible to imagine how someone could not see this, or trip over it. We didn't get to take advantage of the amenities due to our short stay. The truck stop diner across the street is walkable, and despite appearances, has the best truck stop food ever.
Great landscaping, very well-maintained. Hot, clean showers. Nice park area with fountain, easy freeway access. Sites are relatively level with good hookups. Propane on-site. Staff is very friendly. Dedicated billiards room which is the nicest we've seen yet. They have a basketball court and playground for kids with swings. Full-time residents were very friendly (except for our neighbor, who didn't like "smells"/incense.) Great laundry facility. Pool and hot tub looked nice, but we didn't get a chance to use them. We stayed near the front of the park, so we did get some freeway noise. Within walking distance to Camping World. Price reflects monthly rate for water/electric only.
On our second pass through Roswell we spent a night here and found the staff to be very friendly and laid-back. They have two large tanks of Piranhas in the office, very cool! Our pull-through space wasn't quite big enough to fit our 27' motorhome with our car dolly and car on the back. Hookups were good. A smaller park with what seems to be mostly full-time residents. Close to Roswell and the UFO Museum. Recommended for a short-term stay. Make sure to have breakfast at the Cowboy Cafe down the street while you're here!
We were a little surprised at the condition of the roads entering this State Park. Make sure you go plenty slow. We were towing our car, and I wondered more than a few times if it was still on the dolly! It's great because it's far outside of Roswell, so very quiet. Abundant nature and wildlife (including a family of raccoons). Right next to the lake. We wanted to rent a boat but they are not available in the winter. The scenery is great and the volunteer staff is very friendly and helpful. Our site was water and electric only, but both worked well. The showers are push-button, similar to those you would find in jail. And... they seemed to not have any hot water! We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a nice camping experience away from the city. Definitely recommended for the wild and adventurous.
We're giving this a 10 rating for two reasons. First, the amazing landscape around the Carlsbad Caverns entrance. Second, we were here for 4 days in winter, so there were only 4 or 5 campers in the whole park; and while walking our cat we met raccoons, a skunk, a family of deer and a family of white-collared Peccaries (wild boars), The wildlife and setting of this park was truly awesome, and it was very quiet. However, it should be noted that this park is more of a 'campground' experience, and what amenities they advertise are not actually available. (Water park, restaurant, beer, cigarettes). They have a general store, but it sells nothing you'd really need. Anything you need you will have to go into Carlsbad to get (about 30 miles away). Since we were here in the winter, White City is just 'kind of' open. Most of the attractions were closed. But to stay so close to the Carlsbad Caverns, and experience the caves was amazing. The showers were... interesting. The men's room has a YMCA-style shower system; 4 shower heads in one big room! The woman's showers (2) are open to the entrance of the restroom with no doors or curtains. Neither restroom was very clean, and the women's was overrun with mosquitoes. Wi-Fi is available in the office only, but is open all night. Staff is friendly and helpful. This place is wild, adventurous and highly recommended.
We've stayed here twice now, both for a month at a time. Staff is super-friendly. Mostly level parking, hookups are good. Many of the surrounding parks do not have trees. However, when the high desert wind blows the park turns into a dust bowl. The long-term residents are very friendly. The facilities are older, and not by any means meticulously cared for. They have an on-site RV supply/Propane serviceman who is extremely nice and will help you with whatever you need. It is relatively close to the highway (I-40) so you do get quite a bit of road noise. Definitely a good choice over American RV park across the freeway, which is outrageously overpriced. Just don't shower while anyone is doing laundry! (Big time water pressure/temperature fluctuation.) Plenty of room in between sites.
Ten miles from the city of Moab, so it's very quiet and removed. Situated next to the open desert, where you can take your ATVs, motorcycles or just hike with your pets. The only RV park that offers a view of the North and South Window arches at Arches National Park, and is located very close to the park entrance. Just across the highway is the entrance to Dead Horse Point, with Canyonlands down from there. The store keeps good hours and sells all the necessities (including cigarettes and alcohol), so you don't need to go into Moab for it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have propane and air on site. Sites are relatively level with good hookups. Some cool and eclectic features include the large lighted tipis at the front of the park and the old mission church.
Best showers ever - probably the nicest, cleanest restrooms by far anywhere we've stayed. The nearby highway is extremely noisy. There is an ambulance service that runs from Bastrop to Austin that passes by a dozen times a day with the sirens blaring. The river and boardwalk is awesome. Sites are level and well-maintained. Hookups are all perfect. Wi-Fi is an extra charge, but worth it for steady, fast service. Staff is super friendly and flexible. Most of the places we looked at in Bastrop were right by the highway (so noisy) but we would definitely stay here again. They do have restrictions on the year/model of your rig, but we had no problems with our restored '87 Winnebago. Price reflects monthly rate.
