We didn't actually stay here. We inquired about the facility and did a self-tour of the park as a potential site for our "shake-down" cruise with a new rig. The park actually looks pretty good. The grounds appear to be reasonably maintained and the main facility is clean, up to date, and well maintained. The reason for this review is their billing practices. They charge $5/day (variable) extra for 50-amp service for all daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. The $5 extra on the daily rate is consistent with industry standards so that the park may offset the potential extra power demands of a 50-amp rig on an overnight stay. I have no problems with that. What I do have problems with is that the park still meters and charges for electricity use on top of the $5/day charge. This is a double-tap on the consumer that I am not willing to accept or pay. I have options and will not patronize this park even though is looks like a nice place, and it is convenient to us. Unfortunate. Nightly rate is for a 50-amp premium lot, summer rate.
Staying here for about 5 weeks early summer. It's hot, but I have a well shaded site that mitigates the summer heat. Park is immaculate and service is excellent. Lots are BIG, 40 x 60+, level and utilities well located. Wi-Fi is good and reliable, at least from my site. That is important because I'm here on business and working long days. And working more at night. Park is 55 limited and quiet. Other campers in the park are genuinely friendly and always say Hi or wave. Laundry, showers and bathrooms large, well appointed and always clean. Will stay here again if in the area.
We've been coming here once or twice every year for 6 years. It is still as nice as ever in terms of facilities, service, and atmosphere. They have instituted a reservation policy so beware. If you don't have a reservation you might have to jump sites in the middle of a stay. We were here early in the year, and the CG was not crowded, but some other campers had to move in the middle of their stay.
A nice place, with very friendly people. Would stay here again. Convenient to I-40 but far enough away to avoid major noise. Waist high fences between sites give the impression of more privacy that is real, but still a nice touch. Has convenient utilities and stable power. There is limited cable TV, but additional over-the-air channels. Novelty store on site is a junk collector's paradise.
Nice Park close to what will become the Hard Rock Casino of Albuquerque. Located just minutes from I-25 and just south of town. Almost all pull through's. Has 40 cable TV channels; high water pressure, use a regulator; stable power. Has good fishing: wife caught 16.5, 15.5, 14, 13, and 12 inch rainbow trout in one day. Really nice park, under utilized, at least this time of year. Has an on-site store with critical but limited stock. Nice comfortable atmosphere. Would stay here again. In fact we extended our stay by 3 days.
This Park has been a pleasure to stay at. We have, on this whole trip, missed the Winter Texan season and have had very good luck picking RV Parks. The staff here is exceptional and will go way out of their way to help in any way possible. On one day the Park's Internet provider service crashed and the staff were very apologetic about any inconvenience, and they worked continuously until service was restored. Wi-Fi is superb here. This was previously a Mobile Home Park. All the old residents are gone now and the park is mature, wide open, with many good wide and deep sites. This parks is centrally located for exploring the surrounding area. Well place and well run. Will stay here again if in the area.
This is a typical KOA campground. While the current owners are trying to accommodate current RV requirements, it is a bit tight. (-2) We had a pull-thru that was barely long enough, it was close on both sides to our neighbors. Office personal were nice and personable and helpful when asked for information. We were visiting old friends so didn't need a lot of help. This RV Park is RIGHT on I-35 and travel noise was distracting. (-1) It would make an adequate over-nighter, but there are few other opportunities in the area if you want to stay in the area longer. 8- as a over-nighter, 7 for a longer stay.
Very new RV park. This park is still not complete, but it is getting there quickly. Rate is based on weekly stay. Cable TV is not currently available at all sites as the owner cut off service to unused sites. It didn't bother us as we have satellite available. It is going to be a very nice park with easy access to the Aransas area. There are no pull-thru's but all the sites are wide and easy to get into. The grounds are maturing quickly. While we were there the Bathroom/shower (nice) and pool opened and the laundry got very close to opening when we left. By the next "Winter Texan" season this park should be at the 90+% completion rate including paving the roads. If vacationing in this area again, I would stay here.
Buckhorn Lake RV Resort is exceptional. We stopped here for a week to take in the Texas Spring Wild Flowers. (Rated the best year in the last 20) We experienced a few days of very heavy rains, but the park drained well and stayed neat and well manicured. They take great pride in their property and it shows. 50% or more long pull-throughs; back-ins are deep and wide and easy to get into and out of. Great support crew. Will not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
Above average "over nighter." There is nothing in Fort Stockton but it's half way between El Paso and San Antonio and a convenient stop-over. All pull throughs, clean, and an excellent on-site diner. Dinner for 2 with beer and wine for $20.00. Good food; plenty of it too. Well kept. Mostly gravel. Easy on and off of I-10, but noise not an issue in the spring with windows closed. Might be during the summer with windows open. Will stop here again.
Except for the lack of internet access, this is an excellent Campground. Exceptionally clean, run by an retired Sergeant Major with a personal interest in the reputation of the CG. All pull throughs and big rig friendly. Accessible by only Active or Retired Military, 100% disabled Vets and ID card holding DOD employees. Well done ARMY!!!!
This is our third consecutive year at Fool Hollow. We intentionally visit there before Memorial Day or after Labor Day to avoid the crowds from Phoenix in between these dates. The Price has risen from $20 to $25 per day full hookup as of 1 April this year, but it's still worth it. Bath room (actually suits) are immaculately cleaned 3 times a day. Camp Hosts are friendly, helpful and attentive. We WILL return again.
This is still a superb State Park campground. The grounds are maintained meticulously as are the facilities. We routinely camp BEFORE Memorial Day and AFTER Labor Day to avoid the crowds, but this time both of the weekends that were part or our stay, the CG was full. Still the staff kept up with everything. Clean bathrooms, clean streets, and never a trash overflow. This is a credit to AZ. Other parks in the state should take note. Will return this fall, AFTER Labor Day. :)
We did an "over-nighter" here because it is 1/2 way between Page, AZ and home. Glad we did. His is a nice park. This is a nice park and worth the stay. It is clean, well maintained and big rig friendly. Long, wide slots available just about any time of the year. The manager is especially friendly and accommodating. The pool just reopened after a major overhaul, the laundry room is neat, and clean. There are many planned activities and short-term customers are encouraged to participate. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
I believe that the previous reviewers did this CG an injustice. I found the staff cheerful and friendly, and especially knowledgeable about Lake Powell fishing which I took advantage of. The park is clean and the staff diligent. They started early in the morning and kept working all day. Our site offered some shade, but then it is the desert and allowances must be made for that. It is difficult and expensive to cultivate large shade trees in this environment as is lush green grass. The park is clean and quiet. It does not offer a lot of activities, but the surrounding area should be enough to keep most people entertained for several days. See the lake, visit it's beaches, take either/both water or land tours available. We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 days we stayed here. Stayed entertained, and relaxed as we desired without interruption. We will stay here again in the future as we have family in the area and enjoyed the time we spent here.
Brand new CG, just celebrated their 1st anniversary. Superb facilities and service. Landscaping immature at this point, but, if maintained properly, this CG will be an easy 10. All the good things said below are true. Also missed the entrance because it is not well marked, but found an easy turn-around. I didn't get upset about it. Will definitely stay here again if in the neighborhood. Excellent park, LOTS of room.
Nice little CG. Mostly pull-thru's with adequate width to extend awning and not impinge on you neighbor. Convenient to Zion National park. NO on cable is true but we got over 10 over-the-air channels including all the major networks. WIFI worked quite well at our site, slowed a bit during peak hours but still adequate. Nice little pool, good service, staff helped plan our trip to Zion. Good water pressure, stable power. All-in-all a nice place to spend a few days while exploring. We would stay here again if in the area.
Large, nice, rustic CG. This might not be everyone's choice, but it is just up our alley. Large, wide, shaded sites most with full service. No cable TV, but a couple of over the air channels available. (reception dependent on location) Well treated at reception, and nicely appointed facilities. The whole Ruby's facility is nice especially the camping/food store. We were very happy there. If you MUST have, on-site, internet AND a bazillion cable channels look elsewhere. We have 2 large dogs and there was plenty of space to walk and exercise them - that is a PLUS for us. We will return here, definitely!!!
Nice little park. New free wifi, strong and fast. A little tight, but OK, even for big rigs. Well appointed RV supply store and close to local stores including a Super Walmart. Free paper, courteous staff, clean and well maintained. Intended an over-nighter, but got weathered in. Some road noise, but in the cool of September, with windows closed, not noticeable. Warmer weather and open windows might be a bit different. Liked it here, would over-night here again as there are few opportunities or options in northern Utah.
Good CG located out in the middle of nowhere. Collocated with the Wildhorse Casino. Large, wide, level sites. Big rig friendly. Good restaurant in casino. No Cable TV, but several over-the-air TV stations available. Good layover site, cheap and you'll likely make up for the low site costs with a donation to the casino. Good luck here. A very pleasant stay over spot.
Nice place. Wide, deep, level slots. Lots of room for dogs to walk, limited cable TV. Staff friendly and helpful whin I blew a trailer light; actually took me to NAPA to get the part. Comfortable, clean, accessable. Will return again if in the area.
Nice park, but not our cup of tea. Long, wide sites with all utilities including 60 channels of clear cable, and on-site wifi. Actually they have 3 nodes that cover the park well. As to "cup of tea" we prefer a bit more rustic. This is a very well developed park with hedgerows between each site for privacy, but it is tightly packed. Not in contrast to above, sites are large, but there is no wasted space. For those who like a hotel like atmosphere with all the amenities, this will be just great. Will take the largest rigs easily. Enjoyed the stay.
Over-all a pleasant experience. 100 pull-through sites big enough to handle anything. Separate tenting area. Well groomed grounds, manicured and clean sites and nice a wide (30+ feet). No fire rings in RV area, but a community fire ring every night. Five minute walk to the river, and the fishing, by all accounts, is still good. Neighbor caught 3-15+lb salmon the day after we arrived. Laundry room with 4-washers ($1.50) and 4 dryers (.75); clean and neat. Quiet and peaceful as this is just post-Memorial Day. Lots of typical tourist traps and things to see. Will return if in the area again!!
Nice park on Clear Lake, Nice CA. Part of the park directly on the lake, part across the street. Manager friendly and helpful when needed. Generally well maintained and clean. Arrived at the end of the Memorial Weekend exit and our spot was already prepped. Good fishing on the lake. Very small, rocky beach. Comfortable quiet and relaxing after 3 days on the road. Stayed 3 days. Would stay again if passing through.
This was our Maiden Voyage with our new 5'er and we were exceptionally pleased. For a state operated facility this campgroud is superlative. Sites are large and widely spaced. There is no attempt to maximized utilization. Sites are level and easily accessable for even the largest rigs. Some sites a doubles to allow small groups to share a single site with individual hookups, no sharing necessary. The lake is beautiful and several sites are right on the lake. Fishing was good. We will be eating smoked trout for some time. The privacy, and quiet was just the thing for the week we spent there. The CG was sparsely populated while we were there, but we chose this on purpose. The CG is reportedly very busy while school is out during the summer. It is only about 2 hours from Phoenix and the high altitude is a welcome relief from Phoenix's 110+ degree summers. Each loop has excellent, well maintained bathroom suites (I.E Private toilet, sink, and shower). Off site you must try Charlie Clarks Steakhouse in Pinetop about 15 miles away. Superb menu including wild game, venison, buffalo, quail and walleye. We are already planning a return trip to this CG after Labor Day and the kids go back to school.
This is my first review and our first trip out with our first RV in over 30 years. This was our shakedown cruise close to home. The only reason that this is not a 10 is that we don't have anything to compare it to. The staff here seems to be mostly longterm residence but they are excellent. We were warmly greeted, escorted to our site, and helped to back in. Our escort even took time to sit down with us concerning campground ettiquette and local rules. This campground is immaculate. Every site is raked and cleaned and prepped before a new RV is sited on the lot. Lots are wide (40 foot+) and deep. Facilities excellent and clean. Access to I10 is easy but the resort is far enough away from the highway to be quite. Very little shade, and immature trees, but you are in the high Sonora Desert. $19 cost represents a Military/Military Retiree Rate for the rest of you Old Soldiers.
