We are so pleased to find a nice campground for an overnight stay in Gallup. We do not like the Gallup area in general, however, we find ourselves having to overnight here often. Nice, safe, clean, FRIENDLY park. Now that we have discovered it, we will stay no where else in Gallup. Easy to navigate, large pull through sites.
What a welcome site to finally find this place. We visited a horrible park down the street and were relieved when we found Hi-Valley. They were a bit difficult to find. Has nice clean, wide, grassy sites and very nice management. They helped us locate a great upscale Pub (Berdeneys) close by. Would stay here again.
Disappointed with this KOA. Our site was narrow and had brown grass. There were bigger, greener sites available (but we did not know until daylight and did not want to take the trouble to move). For the price one would feel they would cater to their "campers" better and set us up with a nicer site. Will not stay here again.
I liked this place. We arrived late however someone was here to check us in. Our site was large enough however, there are brightly painted yellow bolders to demark the sides of the pad, and we had to backup several times to avoid hitting them. We did not use the facilities but the grounds appeared well kept.
Park is in a beautiful location. We had an interior site which was nice and shady, but kind of close to your neighbor and had no view of the mountains. Next time I would opt for one of the better sites near the entrance which had beautiful, large manicured grass. The fenced dog run was outstanding, huge, over and acre in size. We may stay here again.
This park is ok for an overnight stay. It is a large park with many permanent residents. We arrived after dark and if not for the help of one of the residents, we would of had a bit of trouble getting to our spot. The road we needed to turn down to get to our site, was not well marked. Some shade trees: watch for low branches. The sites are wide enough but the road noise from the highway was a little noticeable. Probably would not stay here again.
We spent 5 days over New Year's here: lovely property. We opted for the most expensive choice, a lake site. Level concrete pads, surrounded by grass. Each site has a nice cast-concrete tiled table. Most sites have shrubs between them for added privacy. Many sites were permanent residents: all with very nice, large RV's. What really makes this resort a prize is its proximity to the beach. The property backs up to the Gulf, only separated by the dunes. A short walk over a foot bridge takes you right out to the beach. It was cool weather but we enjoyed walking our dogs on the wide, bird-filled beach. Some states don't allow dogs on the beach: Yeah Texas! We didn't use the pool/hot tub but it looked well-kept. The management was nice. Some of the perimeter sites were not yet landscaped/developed so to avoid an eyesore: opt for an interior site. We would stay here again.
We stayed at Lion's Beach. Nice large sites, on a bluff with full view of the lake. Fairly clean showers. Nice camp host who left helpful message on our windshield regarding tag needed for our extra vehicle. Has paved level sites, shady table with a fire ring. The only problem with Elephant Butte is it is often windy, therefore dusty.
I give this park a 4 because it is old and not big rig friendly. It could accommodate smaller rigs/tents fairly easy, however, if you are 33 feet or more, the pull through sites are short. Most sites you would have to unhook a tow vehicle. There is ample shade due to large trees but be careful of low hanging branches. The roads are narrow and difficult to make turns, especially with a tow. The sites are dirt and fairly narrow. It is questionable that it meets the standards of a KOA. In all fairness, they offered a breakfast but we did not take advantage, nor did we use the bathroom/shower facilities. It is immediately off of I-40 (between Elk City and Clinton) as you would expect there is a lot of highway noise. Would not stay here again.
It is a nice place to overnight, conveniently located just off I-40. There is not too much highway noise and a distant train whistle could be heard but did so loud as to interfere w/ our sleep. A very friendly owner, who gave us a discount even though we did not have any discount memberships. In the past, we have had difficulty finding nice RV parks in the south. Most have permanent residents that lend a "trashy" feel to many establishments. Not so here. It is a smaller, well maintained park with room to accommodate large rigs. There are gravel roads and pads. We did not use the WiFi or restroom facilities. We probably would not stay here for an extended period but would overnight here again.
What a great place to overnight. Located on the western edge of Amarillo,their huge sign is easily seen from I-40, however, it only says "RV Resort" not "Oasis RV" so heads up if you are looking for it. We arrived late at night and there was no late arrival information posted so we called the phone # and a friendly fellow said for us to "just drop $20 bucks in the box". I am sure he gave us a discount because of our late arrival. The bathrooms/showers were the cleanest we have ever used! The entire facility was clean and well maintained. I think the park is new , therefore, there is no shade. We had no time to use the pool but it looked nice. We would overnight here again
A nice clean state park with warm showers. About 14 miles off the highway, just outside of Summerville AZ. We arrived late and used self pay station, however, park attendant came out and helped direct us to a site best suited to fit our RV. If in the area we would stay here again.
Hurray for Catalina State Park. We prefer State and National Parks over private RV parks and this is one of the best. Sites are large and the view of the mountains (especially from loop A) are just great. The park employees and volunteers were are polite. The bathrooms and showers were quite clean and had warm enough water. We visited in February and will return again.
