Nice, quiet, widely spaced sites, but lake almost nonexistent

We stayed in Blanco CG site 52 for 6 days in a 36’ Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow. The park has gone to great lengths to make the sites level and most looked like they were. Ours was very level and I almost didn’t need to level at all. All of the sites are spacious and quite widely spaced. However, the inner loop pull-throughs are a bit wonky given the oneway road, as the hookups are on the apposite side that they should be for a pull-through. Most of them had enough space to make a U-turn and come in from the opposite direction, but our site was to tight for our rig to do that so I had to drop and back in. The park has several nice trails and the bathrooms/showers were pretty clean and well maintained, although there are only 2 shower stalls, one of them HA, for the whole campground. Unfortunately, the lake has been allowed to go mostly dry, during the decades long drought, to maintain a reservoir down at lower elevation and closer to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. AT&T coverage was fair, with 2 Bars of LTE service and speeds up to about 2 MB/s. Most of the trees are fairly low, so we were able to get DISH coverage on all three western satellites at our site. There were no OTA channels to be had with our fixed omni antenna. There is one small grocery store in Chama, with very limited selection, so plan accordingly. Unfortunately, most of the restaurants in Chama were also closed and looked like they had been for some time. Also, Google Maps erroneously shows a Fresh for Less in Los Ojos, but if you pull it up, it’s actually in Bernalillo. I’ve submitted a correction request to Google, so perhaps that will get fixed. Also, also, coming from the South and East RVTripWizard routed us down an impossible, and completely unnecessary, dirt track road to get there. I’ve submitted a request to fix this also, but in the meantime be aware and approach via US-64/84 and State Road 95.
