Very nice federal park located in the national forest and on a lake. Although the actual sites are not on the water, it is only a short hike. Although in a national forest, I'd say the park is more geared towards lake visitors than trail hikers. There were a couple of short trailers in and around the campground. There is a little town about 8 miles away that has everything you need: at least grocery, gas, and a few eateries. I chose a pull through site (#19) but had wished I picked one of the back ins. They are extremely roomy and I'd say even better than the pull throughs. I stayed in Yellowhammer based on previous reviews, but I saw nothing wrong with the other loop. We'll stay here again, but bring the fishing gear next time.

Very good find. Just about 7 miles south of HWY 78. Very wooded and lots of trails. All paved but narrow. I have a 37' fiver and could only find one site (#9) that I could back into. There were a few others but they were reserved. You can commit to the campground road without getting yourself into trouble size wise. Due to the trees you feel much further away from other campers. I do not recommend taking a 40' big rig to this park: especially with a toad. Without a toad you would probably be OK. Because of the narrow road you can't cut as much as you would like when backing in. It is an extremely nice state park though. We will return for sure.

This park was enjoyable but the potential was ruined by someone who does not know how to design sites. Way too narrow and they had plenty of space to alter the design. Long Lake (was originally made by a river) is nice and full of fish. Campers can fish for free and allegedly you do not need a state license as the lake is private. I think you still need one but state folks do not have access to enforce. If you get the first 4 pull-thrus you'll be OK. After that you better have a very small camper to park in the sites. Buffalo roam right next to the sites but there is a fence between the campground and them. It was nice to wake up to Buffalo grazing 100 feet from your camper. Someone put a lot of money into the asphalt (narrow) road and facilities but whoever designed the sites should never be trusted to do so again.

Small park with great views of the Organ needles and mountains AND FULL HOOK-UPs. Located on the missile range just south of highway 70, it is about a 20 minute drive to Las Cruces and 30 minutes to White Sands National Park. Sites are level from side to side but slope up from back to front: not much of an issue. Sites are co-located with a small park with plenty of playground equipment. Be careful of the strong winds (+70 mph) in December. Best value I've seen for the view, full hook-ups. We will camp here again.

We stayed 2 nights and used the middle day to tour the Grand Canyon. Wi-Fi, cable TV, sewer, water and electricity all worked well. I liked how the hook ups and lengths of pull-through sites made it easy to set-up. Sites were level: ground was wet during the day (Jan) from snow melt, but there was enough gravel on top of compacted dirt that I never had an issue. It feels soft but that is just the 2’’ of gravel giving way. The owner was friendly and answered all our questions. The campground is located on a Route 66 small town, so it is nestled in next to schools, apartments and housing areas. Not an issue for us. The owners warned me to turn off the water at night: based on my cold weather camping experience I ignored the warning and wrapped my second heat tape around the park's water pipe. For some reason the heat tape stopped working at night. The next day I tried to turn off the water and broke the handle. I offered to pay for the damages but the owner wouldn’t accept my money and said that my continued business and future stays are worth more than a $60 pipe they have in stock. We will definitely stay here again based on amenities, location, prices and customer satisfaction-oriented owners.

Great location for our visit and close to any Interstate for your next destination. All sites were back-in but not an issue for us. The only bad thing about this park is the walk from the parking lot to the registration office. Wi-Fi and cable worked great and the hook-ups configured for easy use regardless of your RV sewer location. For the price, location and hook-ups we will definitely stay here again.

This park was a very nice ‘surprise’ find for us. Not too far from all the area attractions, offers great walking trails, has water electric and sewer hook-ups, is well shaded and you will get plenty of high definition over the Air channels in your coach. The 6 mile drive to either side of civilization is a bit windy but tolerable for once a day travels into the bay area. It is a tight drive in the full hook-up area of the park but we managed by taking our time. The sites vary greatly as so you may want to change once you get there pretty level where you put your RV but can drop off just a few feet away. Our 3-stair entry was almost 2 feet off the ground and the hook ups at our site (#7) and the hook up pedestals didn’t allow much room to maneuver further away from the drop-off. We will definitely stay again but will try to reserve sites 1-5 or 9-12.

We used this park as to stay while snowboarding at Powder mountain and Snow Basin. We were the only ones in the entire park (January 2010), snow was on the ground and the lows were in the mid teens at night. The water worked all night even though I only put heat tape on my hose. I didn't like the location of the sewer (about 8 feet behind the power pedestal at site 7) so we used site 5's sewer as a dump on our way out. We didn't notice the highway traffic noise even though the park is right next to I-15.

Based on previous reviews our expectations were pretty low. The Nellis AFB park was full and we didn’t know anything about Sam’s Town and other RV Parks. Hitchin Post came up on Google first. We are usually State/National Park/US Forestry type RVers but that’s not why we visited Vegas. If you use this park for nothing more than hook-ups with S/W/E, WIFI, Cable and laundry then it is a perfectly fine park. The local area was pretty bad but we did not feel unsafe at all inside the park. The drive to the strip only took about 15 minutes. They put us close to other ‘nightly’ campers so we had some stand-off from the permanents. This helps when your neighbor is just like you. It is hard to rate this park since we didn’t visit for the scenery or the park itself. The staff were very friendly and answered every question we had. We would stay again but will likely try the Sam’s Town on Nellis BLVD or the KOA at Circus Circus for variety.
