Very large old park w/paved roads, sand/gravel mostly level open sites, most w/concrete patios. Easy access. Large rigs OK. Sites 50/30/20 elec & water & some sewer. Dump stations & pump out trucks. Several restrooms, average cleanliness, one is obnoxious. Maybe half mobile homes. Sites on top and tiered down sides of hills down to river, makes it interesting, not usual cookie-cutter rectangular park. Satellite good but terrain against hill might get in way at a few sites. Verizon Wireless cell is 4-bar Extended Network. Some have problems with dropped cell calls. Data is overloaded, poor connectivity during day, worked sporadically or not at all, except middle of night. We hear extra cost WiFi doesn’t work well. Believe it is not a park problem but rather the town is overloaded. Easy in/out, location very close to center of town, just over London Bridge & on edge of Colorado River make this a nice park. Gate staff friendly & helpful. Also has a few boat docks & canoe/kayak rentals. We stayed 2 weeks in North Beach section on edge of river. Looked at other RV parks, many extremely tight, very close to neighbor, few river views, comparable pricing. Havasu is a vacation & seasonal destination, Jan & Feb very busy & parks mostly full so reservations recommended. $35-40-48/night, weekly, monthly, yearly rates. Will come back.
Park is very large and well laid out. Friendly and helpful owners and staff live on site. Sites are spacious with wide roadways. All sites and roadways are well groomed small gravel. Park is protected with gate code and / or security attendant. There are no large trees to block satellite TV reception from any site. Our Verizon cell phone and data worked OK. Park has good free Wi-Fi with antennas located around the park. Views of nearby mountains are fabulous from all sites. Prices are reasonable and good monthly rates are available. The town of Creede is a small Colorado mining town with lots of restaurants, shops, galleries, and a well-stocked grocery store. Many places to hike, see ghost towns, old mines, and pretty vistas, most accessible with regular automobiles. This area is also known for fishing and extensive 4-wheel-drive roads to well-known sites. New Disney 2013 Lone Ranger movie was partly filmed in Creede.
The park is 6 miles north of Durango on west side of highway. Grounds well maintained. Easy entry. Gravel roads & sites with grass between. Front sites are level and mostly open for satellite TV, plenty of room for slide-outs and have great views of the mountains. Sites in back part are on slight hill, closer together, in trees. Good electric, water & sewer, cable TV. Small pool closed. Tent for group use. Nice bathrooms, laundry, office. Small outdoor restaurant serves limited breakfast for reasonable cost. Large off-leash grassy dog exercise area. Office staff was difficult to work with, inflexible, and did not make us feel welcome. No smiles. All sites appear to be pre-assigned and they would not change an unsatisfactory site even if better site was available. Reservation system is problematic, not allowing campsite changes and not recording all reservations. Management does not to reply to all phone reservation messages. Wi-Fi didn't work but park management no help and said it works OK. Our Verizon 3G data service kept us connected. Grounds staff friendly and accommodating. Park management condones cutting grass right next to parked RVs allowing several RVs to be damaged from stones thrown from lawn mower.
