This campground has such great potential. The tenting and cabin area is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a large, grassy area on the north side of the park that is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a great pool and pavilion area, and a great doggie play area. The pull through sites, however, are somewhat ragged and ratty looking, definitely need some TLC, new gravel, edging, etc. As pointed out in many of the reviews, the sites are too close together; they need to eliminate about every third site and space them out more.
We just didn't "click" with this campground. Big rig "friendly": no. Big rig "accessible if you are careful: yes. Site level: no. Picnic table level: no, and no place in the site to put it, to make it so. Campground provided BBQ level: no. Water pressure: poor. WiFi: only at the rec room. This sites are well spaced generally, and ours had lots of shade. The park seems to be one that likes to add lots of extra fees, so for $50 a night, we will look at other options next time we want to visit the national park.
I was surprised how hard I had to dig to find my way to the park: couldn't find the actual address listed on any of the websites. Fortunately, we navigated our way straight to it using our iphone. Everything else said about the park by other reviewers is right on. A great park, at a very good price. They do offer weekly rates, which seems to attract some extended stayers, but every one of these sites were neat and well maintained, with very little in the way of clutter. We would definitely stay here again.
The other reviews are pretty much right on. The owners/management were friendly and accommodating. Only 4 or 5 pull throughs in the park, all unshaded. Great place to stay if you have kids, but a little to "active" for us. If we have our grandchild with us, this park will be our first choice when we visit again.
For the price, it's hard to be picky. Some parts of the park are very neat, some parts less so. We were camped next to a very trashy looking long-term motorhome. For folks wanting an inexpensive park for an overnight stay, this is a pretty good choice. We will probably try the other park next time we are passing through.
We had a pull through at the end of the park, and we were very happy with it. The "facing" pull through sites mentioned by others, are a little weird, but would be nice for those traveling together. Too bad the park has so many of these sites. We were escorted to our site, and campground staff was very friendly. There was an ice cream social each night we were here. A nice, friendly little park. We would stay here again.
This park's assets are the cheap price and the clean appearance. For a newer park, we were surprised at a couple of poor design features, mainly the close spacing of the sites and the very sharp turns for big rigs to negotiate at the end of the park. Fortunately, we had no one next to us, or we would have had to step over their sewer hook up at the base of our steps! The casino didn't impress us, but the restaurant inside was pretty good. We would stay here again for an overnight.
It is what it is: a gravel lot with hook ups. That being said, it is a clean, well-maintained park. Staff was very friendly and accommodating to us. Sites will fit big rigs, but it is tight. Tow vehicles and dinghys are usually parked at the end of the row. Free WiFi worked pretty well. Not much space between sites, and many sites are taken by long-term construction and mine workers. The other, newer RV park is much nicer, but be prepared to pay more $$$. This park caters to overnighters off the interstate.
We usually stay here when in the Reno area, as it is actually pretty quiet. Sites, though paved, are not particularly level. Sites are also pretty narrow, with small strips of grass. Park has a tendency to fluctuate prices depending on events going on in the area: expect premium charges on prime weekends. We also feel that the office, laundry, and pool closes way too soon in the evening, especially on long summer evenings. Nice to have the Cabela's next door.
At first impression, I almost gave it a 10! Our site was backed up to the lake, and our particular site allowed about 50' on either side before the next site! However, most sites, while with adequate spacing, aren't that generous. Few pull through sites, but well designed and angled sites, with wide streets make backing fairly easy. WiFi was available cheap, but not free. WiFi worked poor to lousy in our site: had to be outside to get a signal most of the time. Deposit for restroom keys was a pain: get a combo lock like most other campgrounds.
This park was "adequate". In all honesty, I expected much more based upon the ratings in Woodall's and Trailer Life Directory as well as from the full page ad this campground has in each directory (coincidence?). This is an old KOA, the sites and driveways are all gravel, and despite their ad, big rigs find the driveways a little tight. There are a several long term residents, and a couple of those sites are looking a little trashy. It served its purpose as a stop along I-10, but that's about all.
We pulled in here mostly on a whim, expecting to dry camp. What a neat surprise to get a full hookup site, complete with cable! The sites are large, and there's tons of wildlife. This is a little off of the beaten path for the I-10 traffic, but its worth the side trip. We would stay here again.
I was a little disappointed in the park in general. On the plus side, the owner/staff were very friendly and helpful. Other than that, perhaps we were early in the season or something. The pool still had its cover (full of dirty water) on, and there weeds growing in areas that I don't think there should have been. Next time we will probably bypass this one in favor of Williams or Kingman.
This is a pretty good KOA. They cater a lot to families, and there seemed to be a lot of things for children to do. The main thing that we liked is that it is well-located to stay overnight on that long trek up or down the San Joaquin Valley.
This is a great RV park if you are a train enthusiast. The Grand Canyon Railroad runs only 100' from the park, and there is a lot of opportunity to see the vintage train close up. If you are not a train enthusiast, then the 4:00 A.M. train whistle outside your window might not be so fun. Parents should be aware that there is no fence between the tracks and the park, so children need to be watched closely! Other than that, a straight-forward park, pretty well maintained.
The park is reasonably well maintained. We would give it a higher rating if some firmer rules were established for the seasonals. Some of their rigs and sites are an eyesore. The park has an attached museum, and there is a kid's play area. All in all, this park is a good opportunity to stay near Albuquerque but not have to deal with the noise and traffic.
This is a great little park. There are only a few sites, and only two pull-throughs, but everything is neat and clean. The owners take a great deal of pride in the appearance of the park. The park is a little bit small for children to be able to romp and play.
This park was a vast disappointment compared to their web site. It gives the appearance of being very run down, largely due to lack of maintenance. The weeds needed tending; the bathrooms are falling apart; the laundry was out of order. You register at the motel lobby, but you can only register for one night at a time; if you want to stay longer, you must go back each day and register again. There is a very finicky card-lock security gate that you must negotiate, which includes a hard corner for trailers to navigate. This gate serves no purpose that we could see, other than to irritate the campers. There are no assigned sites; you take whatever is open. If you have to drive your RV up to the caverns, you need to leave something in your site or someone else will take it while you are gone. The sites are arranged with hook-ups every other site. Rigs have to alternate directions in the pull throughs in order for the hook-ups to come out right. This means that your door will face your neighbor's door. There is only 10' of space between sites, with two picnic tables crammed in. We will definitely not stay there again.
Bare bones basic KOA, and like most, over-priced for what you get. Sites were gravel, and the park was fairly well maintained for what it was. The park has the advantage of being somewhat in the middle between Tucson and El Paso for those in transit. There are not a lot of services available in Lordsburg. If we had to do it again, we would opt to travel another 45 minutes to Deming.
Yes, this park is a large paved area adjacent to an RV dealership. We didn't find that to be a problem; in fact it was very nice to be able to walk over to the Camping World store to buy a needed part. Nice pool area, as well as a fitness center. There is also a good restaurant included in the park complex. A continental breakfast was included in our stay.
A good, clean park, with a lot of attention paid to appearances. Full-timers and seasonals have a strict set of rules to follow regarding the looks of their site. There are a lot of trees planted, and some day there will be a lot of shade. There is not a lot for kids to do, and parents are expected to make sure that their kids follow the rules. There is some noise from I-10 as well as U.S. Air Force aircraft from a nearby base.
