Very nice state park--we have been to 6 of 11 with camping. We stayed in the west campground with a view of the lake. New beach with sand is almost finished. Enjoyed the birding trail and exploring the Sonoita preserve. Plan to return in May for the Mariachi festival and will stay in the east campground for a change.
During my most recent stay I was at Apache Flats RV Resort for two weeks. The hosts are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the free gym, but I'm disappointed that they no longer offer free WiFi because of their service provider problems. I appreciate the opportunity as a (working) DoD contractor to use the park. I paid $17/night for FHU and 50 channels of cable TV.
Stayed here for the first time a total of 3 weeks. Drove directly from Arizona and have no complaints. The location is perfect for workcamping at Ft. Bragg. Quiet, remote but 5 minutes to Post, friendly staff, with washers and dryers available. Even numbered sites are reserveable, odd are first come first serve. There are limited service sites with water and 30amp electric if W/S/E (50 amp) sites are full. Limited sites have better views of the lake!
We stayed 6 nights and were happy with the park, facilities, hosts, and rangers. We originally reserved online paying the $10 fee but asked the host after the first night if we could just move to the First Come/First Serve side of the park where there were sites with some shade and better views. Check out time is 2pm, check in is 4pm. Most campers we saw didn't stay longer the 3 nights. Fires are permitted but only in the site grill, no ground fires. Close and convenient to Carlsbad, Rosewell, Carlsbad Caverns, Sitting Bull Falls, The Outdoor Living Museum, etc. The lake wasn't that pretty. We didn't even take the time to put the Porta Boat on the water. It's also only a catch a release due to tainted water and fish. We did see deer, and of course cows and horses on local private property. On a couple of nights there was a strong odor of sulfur from the surrounding wells.
A very nice park. Clean, comfortable, close to Fort Bliss, and cheap. I stayed for 3 weeks and found the amenities such as the exercise room, laundry, and club house to be a bonus! I was in site 58 which is farther than most from the free Wi-Fi, but was still able to receive the signal. I only wish they would throw the switch and let the cable TV signal flow to the pods at the sites. The 24 hour Fort Bliss Police patrols were a comfort. The only thing that wasn't was the noise from highway 54.
Nice campground. Among the 30 sites there were only about 6 parties. Quiet and well maintained. Non-potable water and trash receptacles every 2 sites. We enjoyed the long pull-through site #20 with a great view of the canyon and bridge.
Another 3 week visit. This park offers a central location for many hot spots in southern AZ, and easy access to and from route 90 and I-10. WiFi network has been removed, but park offers inside and outside Internet jacks at the clubhouse for 24 hour access. There is an electric surcharge for actual usage if staying longer than one week.
This is a National Forest Campground maintained by volunteer concessionaires. They were very friendly and prompt when campground or visitor attention was required. There are no hookups and generator quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., but there is fresh water for tank filing and a convenient dump station. There are many lakes, trails, and sites to see within a minutes by car. I have found a new favorite campsite!
I've stayed here numerous times over the past 4 years for 1-3 weeks on work-related trips to Ft Huachuca. It's a quiet park with lots of room and no trashy rigs or behavior. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There's no pool but I use the older-style equipped exercise room and love it. The WiFi is good but can be spotty and the cable TV service is just ok.
This is our second stay. They offer a deal of 3 nights for the price of 2 but I'm not sure which dates are included. Most everything has been covered in earlier reviews, but there is a clean swimming pool, the WiFi is free, and during the 4th of July holiday for 3 nights you can hear the nightly bands and watch the fireworks at the Casino from the pool without the crowds.
