While this park has a number of long-term residents, it was not a problem -- other than a few barking dogs -- as the owners assigned us to a site up front that was level and had a complete hook-up. Very close to Aztec Ruins, with two dog walk areas, including along the river. We will stay here again while in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A fairly nice park. The spaces are fairly level and gravel and the wifi is ok. Iffy at times but ok. The owners are really nice. They brought us some vegetables from their garden and it is handy to the Ruins and Farmington (about 10 miles). We were there for a little over a week. The arches are fun to find and the Bisti/De-Na-Zin wilderness 36 miles south of Farmington is worth the trip. There are no marked trails but a topo map can be found on the internet. Go early as it gets hot after noon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Conveniently located 1/2 mile from Aztec Ruins National Monument with easy access from the main highway. The gravel site was mostly level. Strong Wi-Fi. An older park with some permanent residents. Very good for a one or two night stay while visiting the area. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped one night in travel trailer, there are no facilities here. Owners are nice and helpful, but there was very low water pressure. Electric was fair to poor. Mostly long term folks here. River area looked run down. Okay for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Disappointed in the Ruins Road RV Park because they have no bathrooms or showers, period. The electric, water & WiFi did work okay, but we were just surprised the hostess never even mentioned their apparent lack of facilities. The place had some shade and was okay but we were only staying one night, no more. It was just a big letdown. Probably won't return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We met various interesting nice people; permanent residents on this park. Some sites on the river Animas in full shadow under big trees. Sun sites very large and are pull through. Working free Wi-Fi. 50 amp is also very welcome on hot summer days. Owners very helpful. We had some engine malfunction and we were invited in their home, using their telephone and find the proper repair shop. Aztec Ruins just half a mile up the road. Saves fuel. Price very reasonable taking all free amenities into account. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a few sites for drop ins, mostly long term residents. Owner didn't know what sites where available, said " drive around and take whatever you want". No map or plan. OK for quick over-nite if needed. Fantastic ruins are just down the road a short walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay at this park often, & we just love it! The park is clean, quiet, & safe. The river area is beautiful & full of wildlife. Large pull through spaces, some with grass & large shade trees. The Lilac bushes were in bloom this weekend & filled the park with their wonderful fragrance. Owners are on site & always friendly & accommodating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK for a one night stop-over. Gravel parking lot, not terribly neat or clean, no showers or restrooms. Location is good and wifi was great, but nothing else makes this place special. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Kind of a "hardscrabble" park with many (nice) permanents. But it has numerous benefits we consider important. Convenient, working utilities. Roomy sites. Close to what you want to visit. Really pet friendly, not just conditional pet acceptance. Most of all, owners rank among the nicest owner-operators we've run into in many years and many sites. We would certainly come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been here for 3 days and just extended for 2 more. We have found the park clean and everything in working order. The spaces are large and although there are "permanents", none appear in disarray. The owners are friendly and have answered all of our questions. In response to the person that addressed the mobile home park next door, that has nothing to do with this park and we have not experienced any problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My family has been coming to Ruins Road RV Park since it opened in 1992. We have always enjoyed our experience. The Owners are always very helpful and courteous. They have a nice river/camping area with a covered Ramada, it is very peaceful and full of wildlife. I think the price per night is very reasonable & is within biking or walking distance to the Aztec Ruins Nat'l Monument (saves gas). I would like to know why the previous reviewer stayed here if they didn't offer the amenities he or she wanted. I have never found a park with bathrooms, showers & laundry facilities for under $20.00 We camped here in a Motorhome.
The was by far the single worst RV park we have ever stayed at. The host/owner was not at all friendly, there were almost all "permanent" residents there and it was simply awful. The property is bordered by what seemed to be section 8 trailers and we never felt safe here. The water hookups were filled with fiberglass and garbage, the park dirty and cluttered. There is huge potential here if the time and money were put forth to make it a nice place, especially since they have property that goes directly to the water. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Is an OK park for a short stay, to visit the ruins. I couldn't find any restrooms or showers so I do not believe they have any. Price was with tax included and I consider it cheap. Wi-Fi was not strong but worked OK. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was not our favorite campground as it is very basic and very full of permanent residents. That being said, the owners were very helpful, the permanent residents appeared to be kind, and it was a great starting point for the Aztec Ruins park just down the road about 1 mile. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV park owners were very helpful with directions to our next city, and the price for a private park was very reasonable. The sites themselves were not much better than a glorified parking lot, but the park redeems itself with a very nice picnic area with trees, tables, and a covered deck right on the Animas river. We cooked and ate our dinner with the rushing water as a nice backdrop. I would use it for an overnight stopover, or to visit the Indian ruins in the area. It isn't worth more than a couple of nights here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Owner was very nice, but park is about 3/4 full of permanent residents, some in older units. Sites are dirt and stone with no picnic table. This park is OK for a few nights stay, but would not highly recommend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
