This is a great park. With great staff, and wonderful campers. I would have given it a 10 except it is removed from Grocery stores and National Monuments. But if the rating was based on “Bang for your Buck,” this is a TEN. Previous reports of “Dead Grass” have been corrected. They also completed an irrigation re-pipe while I was there so it should be even better next spring. I travel full time and now I’m traveling alone, so I was touched that the more permanent campers held holiday dinners for those of us that were alone. I was there for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it was “Bring a side Dish” but they provided the Turkey and Ham. I won’t give them too many more accolades or I won’t be able to find a space there next year. I forgot to mention they have their own boat ramp. [I Camped there at the monthly rate]

This is an old park but clean and well kept. It's in Southern Arizona so there are a lot of long term visitors for the winter months but everyone is very friendly. There is no Wi-Fi but it is within Verizon 3G digital range so you can get about 300Kbps on your Verizon card. Do not let a Magellan GPS guide you here or you might get stuck under a railroad bridge going to the wrong place. Instead, turn toward the river off AZ-95 when you see the huge "Blue Water Casino" sign. From there you will see signs to the RV park. The rate shown is a weekly rate. The Casino is very close (1000 Feet). Wal-Mart and Safeway are about a mile away in Parker.

Wow, this is a very well kept park. I felt bad pulling into the perfectly manicured gravel space. The folks are incredibly friendly and helpful. As was noted in a previous review, there can be some train noise even though the tracks are a mile away. It depends on how the wind is blowing but I love trains anyway. I was in Space 11 and despite a previous review, the Verizon 3G card never worked here but the cellphone did. However the park Wi-Fi actually works very well so the lack of Verizon 3G was not an issue. It's right near old RTE 66 and it's worth a couple of day trips in the Toad to see some of the "Mother Road," 60 miles in each direction. You will be taken back in time! This is a great park and I will go back.

I was on a weekly rate. This is a wonderful park with very friendly staff. It's about 23 miles from the entrance of Zion National Park and from what I have seen is the best deal you can get in the Zion area. Verizon WAN / Broadband worked great here. For Full-timers: you can get a great haircut 400 feet away at a shop in the Wendy's center.

This is actually a Best Western Hotel with 10 RV spaces on the property. The spaces were level, clean and the trees didn't obstruct the satellite antenna. Verizon 3G Internet was 5 bars here. They have a free continental breakfast every morning from 6:30 to 9:30 AM. It's near the center of down town and everything is within walking distance. They have an indoor pool and an outdoor pool. You can use their restrooms but there are no showers. Of course you could go another mile south and get a Motel room for $36, with a bed, shower etc., but I thought this was a great place, central to everything in the small town. I'll stay here again.

Lots of shade trees. I got lucky and was in H7 which is "Satellite Friendly" but not many sites are. The Wi-Fi is useless Friday through Sunday when the park is full but mid week is marginal. It's your only alternative because 3G Broadband cards don't work out there and cell phone coverage is "1 Bar." You're pretty close to ponds and streams so mosquitoes would probably be a lot worse in warmer weather but they weren't too bad during September. It's a nice, well kept park if you don't need to be able to communicate via cell phone or Internet but that's a big requirement for me.

I was in space 16 on the South End and there was no Wi-Fi signal there. Verizon 3G works great here however so it wasn't an issue. The large Aspen and Cottonwood trees offer great shade but they obstruct the roof-mounted dish. Cable TV is included with 1 HBO channel so it wasn't a real problem. It's a nice, well groomed and quiet place to stay. Also, there is a hair dresser shop on the property and it's a great place to get a decent men's haircut. Don't know about women's cuts?

This is a nice park and I was here for 2 weeks over the Memorial Day weekend so it was busy and everything in town was sold out. It's a very nice park and the staff were excellent. Wi-Fi worked very well but I was 60 feet from the Pavilion. However Verizon 3G cards work at full speed here so Wi-Fi was redundant for me. I thought the place was well kept and the 360 degrees canyon views are awesome. You probably can't find a better base camp for access to town, Canyon lands National Park and Arches National Park.

This was a very nice little park in a very nice little town. It's the best base camp location if you are going into the Needles (Southern) entrance to Canyonlands National Park. One of the owners is a county Sheriff's Deputy and his car is parked there when he's not on duty. So I rate this the safest camp I have ever stayed in. He and his wife are very nice and I will stay here again when I go through. I stayed for a week and got a 10% cash discount.

I have stayed here several times for a week at a time. It is rather expensive given the area but the resort alternatives are totally unrealistic for the winter months. But I have family here so this is the best deal I can find. If you come here, be sure to visit "Dripping Springs." White sands Missile Range and White Sands National Park. If you are heading north, visit the "Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum" and buy the $25 "Cultural Pass" there. Iy will give you free access to other State operated museums as you travel through New Mexico ... Since they are about $14 each, you will do well to buy the pass here at your entry to New Mexico. The pass will pay for itself twice if you are stopping at Santa Fe.

I stayed at this park for a week. They give a 10% weekly discount for cash. This park might not be on the water but the Durango Steam Train passes through it's grounds twice a day (4 times a day from June to August). There are great photo ops here! WiFi works well when there are fewer than 10 campers but more campers than that, it cuts out often in the evening. Verizon Digital is available but the signal is weak so you only get about 300 kbps. Still, it is much better than the local WiFi. This is a great location if you want to tour the town, ride the train and walk down the river trail to town. There is also a free Trolley that stops in front of the park, 7:30A to 7:30P. Technical note: The sewer drains in this park are unusual in that they can be 8" to 12"deep in an 8" pipe. Bring a "Straight-in" sewer line adapter. Alternate solution: Some campers just cut off their hose and stuffed it down the pipe. Kids Note: They have two very cute Shetland ponies in the barnyard. They are very spoiled. So while they will approach the kids at the fence, you really need to bring Carrots to get them within petting range. Carrots are available at the "City Market" 1.3 miles south.

I was at this park on the monthly rate ($550). As usual Wi-Fi is rarely high speed but Verizon has 3G coverage there so you can get broadband with a Verizon USB or card. While I was there they discovered a gas leak and they had to trench the park to install new gas lines. While this was inconvenient, it was beyond their control and the staff was more fantastic in keeping us informed and making the repairs. Before the Gas was turned off, I used the Showers and laundry room (In the shower room ... a little odd) but I can tell you that they were squeaky clean.

I was up at the north end of the park and the septic tank covers were beside the coach. The smell was unpleasant. The folks were very nice and friendly. One big plus is that this place is next to "Camping World." You can drop off your coach for work and walk back to the Enchanted Trails recreation room (With a Pool Table) and watch TV until repairs are done. Wi-Fi is like most parks who advertise W-iFi. It is very weak and very sporadic. However Verizon 3G works very well out there with excellent broadband if you vave a Verizon USB or card.

You definitely need reservations to stop here but it's a great stop if you are going to Big Bend National Park. Wifi reception is very slow and the only TV is the Camp's cable. They have a very nice courtyard with a fireplace and a great view of the desert to the south. Very nice staff and the folks in Marathon are very friendly as well.

Great Park with great staff. Best view spaces are on the north end in spaces 44 and 50. However Wi-Fi reception is weak out there.

I had heard bad things about this park but it's so close to Carlsbad Caverns that I tried it anyway. Things are improving and they have just installed 50 AM service boxes. Note that they only have 15 Amp and 50 AMP receptacles in the new boxes so bring an adapter if you need 30 Amps. Also note that the old boxes are still on the sites but do not work. Wild life walks right through the park and that's pretty neat. I would stay here again.
