Nearly perfect but for road noise

The RV sites are well placed, the electricity worked well, and the asphalt pad was not level but made leveling easy. The proximity to trails is amazing. Group sites were closed and I worry that this area would be crowded if everything was open. Road noise was significant.

What a beautiful place!

I stayed for two days at these campgrounds. There are spots you can reserve online and then if you go up there hill there are free first come, first serve spots with shelters. It was relatively quiet, and there is a cutoff time for generators for the RVs. The creek and the hiking paths are pretty…

Hubby and I happened onto this beautiful state park. When we were there they had only been open for about two months. The camping spots were perfect equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring. Perfect place on top of a mountain with amazing view!

Great place to stay.

This is an excellent campground. It is well maintained, the staff are so nice, helpful and friendly. The sites are spaced out well. There is art scattered around the property as well as along the walking paths. The sunsets are amazing all within just 5 to 10 minutes from town. This is going to be…

Great spot to stop for a night!

Stayed here for a night on our way back to the East Coast. Very conveniently located off I-40. For $10, it’s definitely worth it! Sites are clean as well as the bathrooms. Water is available, but not at every site. Cold showers are available for free at the State Park (electric sites reservations…

Nice but dusty and kinda tight spaces.

Place was nice and rustic. Only issue we had was we stayed for 5 nights and the park was not full at all but they kept putting 1 nite Rv's by us. FYI, when calling for reservation, request to be in back or at least away from 1 night stay people, if that's what you desire. No issues with the staff.…

Nice quiet spot

The park is a few miles out of town on the original Route 66. It is very quiet and comfortable. The sites are fairly close together like most KOA's. The staff and owners were very friendly. We really enjoyed stay. We were in a water and electric site which was perfect for 5 nights. The showers…

Objectively Awful

The campground is so close to the highway, we would be just as well rested if we slept in the gravel under an overpass on I40.

The tent area was overgrown and full of burrs.

The bathroom was filthy.

If I could award negative stars I would.

Nice but Could be Great

This Forest Service Campground is less than ten miles from the Santa Fe Plaza and is, thus, very popular and very busy. It should be noted that about half of this distance is on a somewhat steep, but very good road. Most of the sites are reservable, and are reserved well in advance, but there are…

Nice for the night

Spots are close to each other but overall pretty nice for the night. Electors and water at the site, WiFi, good cell service and friendly staff.

Great Location

Campsite is situated at the Cave Creek trailhead, a cool hike to some local caves. It's 5 bucks for the night, 2 dollars day use, all backpacking tent sites. Some shelters. Gorgeous views, camp guide says its booked fill every weekend. Good luck

Fun & Funky

Nice back in sites are wide with vegetation and patios. The dog park and walking trail are handy. The views are special and there was musical entertainment one night at the club patio. The gravel sites and driveway was a bit dusty, otherwise this would be 5 star park.

Good overnight, needs a facelift

This campground is just outside Santa Rosa. It accepts Sams, military discount. Old but clean and serviceable. Nice pool, on site restaurant serves good food. Many drive through site with electric and water. Central dump station. Small dog park.
