Resort? Ha ha ha. This is an old fish camp turned RV park. Many permanent residents and old shabby RV's. This place is remote, hard to find, and extremely hard to move a big rig around in with speed bumps and RV's nearly (side to side) touching. The guy parking us actually had us bump into a pole leaving paint on our fender. We had originally gone there to work and left the next day after being told we had to work 30 hours for FHU. The nicest resorts in AZ only require 28 hours for FHU. Most very nice RV resorts only require only 21 hours per week, and we felt that staying would only be feeding this guy's illusions and greed. No internet or cell service. Alligators in the lake: creepy. The owner has 2 other "resorts" nearby. Would not consider going to them after this place. The people near us were friendly. Some people that worked here even told us they "hated" their boss, and to be glad we didn't stay.
First of all let me say that it's our opinion that the time and extra miles it took to get to Big Bend was not worth it. That said, the campground was nice, clean and very beautiful. A picnic table at each site. No frills but grassy and quiet. The sites with hookups are not nearly as nice as the section without hookups. Generators allowed only until 8 pm.
This is a clean, quiet campground that is easy to find and easy to get into. Upon arrival we were checked in by an extremely efficient, but not friendly young woman. We were assigned a site; it was a nice site and we were happy with it. There was a laundry in the back of the store, but we never used it. Close to the Isleta Casino. We will stay here again the next time we are in the Albuquerque area
This campground was very spacious and the sites were very big and easy to get into. The park was clean and the staff was very friendly. They landscaping was nice and neat. This park is on the banks of a river that scores of people frequent in the summer to tube on, but not too many there in the fall. We would definitely stay here again. It was a great place for not much money.
Before checking in, I asked if I paid for one night and then decided to stay longer if I could get the weekly rate to include the first night and was told yes. When I tried to book a week, the next day (different lady) I was told that I could pay for a week, but the 40 dollars I had already paid could not count toward a weekly rate. I was told that the weekly rate was 165, but then I was charged 190, when I questioned this I was told I was in a higher spot. It is confusing which are standard, premium and deluxe sites. I didn't see a difference in the sites. Next I was charged a $30 electricity deposit. Altogether the nightly rate when booking by the week came to about $32 per night. While in the office a customer called to inquire about monthly bookings and the office girl told him that all of the reservable monthly sites were gone, but there was still lots of empty sites in the campground. The park is clean and the people here are nice, they are making improvements in landscaping. A 5 dollar deposit for a key to the bathrooms and showers. It is a tight squeeze to get a big rig in a site, but can be accomplished and they were happy to help us park. This RV park is definitely the closest to the beach within the area, just yards to the beach. We would stay here again
