Nice quiet park on a hill overlooking the small town of Truth or Consequences, NM. Nice view. Within walking distances from grocery store and other local shops bath houses if you’re able to walk ¼ mile. Wal-Mart located two miles north. Free phone usage for 800 numbers and local calls. No Wi-Fi. The owner charges $20/month extra if you want to use her dirty showers. Laundry room with washers/dryers, but owner prefers you use the clothesline outside to keep her energy cost down (I preferred the dryers). Ownership/management/park host – not very customer oriented, rarely in office. The picture of the restrooms on the park's web site is not of their restrooms. Issue # 1: Sewer drain clogged, we called at night, but told him it would wait until morning. When we didn’t receive a call or visit, we called to inquire about it once more. Instead of hearing: “We’re sorry, we’ll be over to check it out,” the response we got was: “Nobody else is complaining but you.” When he did come over to fix the problem, he had no sense of urgency, showed up with an auger that didn’t work, and I caught him using my drinking water hose, with the end six inches down the sewer drain. Issue #2: As I was coming from the restroom one day, I was “greeted” by a woman asking me “Where do you belong?” I stated who I was and where my site was. She stated that she’d met my husband but not me. I smiled, shook her hand and said that I had talked to her when I made the reservations. I understood her desire to protect her property; however I was taken aback by her aggressive approach.
Walnut Canyon RV park is not the worst park we've been to. The electrical, water, and sewer connections are new, the Wi-Fi is good, and the park is shaded. A few negatives stood out, though: The newly built showers are "pull-chain", and only supply cold water. The roads throughout the park are bumpy, uneven, gravel, and some turns are tight. Most of the residents here are "long-term", and have junk accumulating around their rigs. Some sites are not level. The photos on the web site to not accurately represent the park, and the "hiking trail" is littered with scrap iron, refuse, old toilets, and a lot of PVC pipe. The fishing pond is now a deep, dry, hole. The price is good for the area, but we wouldn't stay again.
