"Expensive and Pleasant"

New (DW) waterfront sites are very nice with a bit more space between sites yet no privacy. It’s nice that a person from the office guides you to your site and helps you park. Laundry facility is is adequate and obviously well used because the floor is very dirty. Showers are clean and have extra space with bench for changing. Internet is very...

"Utopia "

This park has the best of everything. And every site seems to be perfect plus so many available activities to include fishing, stink-pot boating or kayaking, biking, bird watching and just chillin’. Online reservations are very tedious.

"Great experience "

This is probably our favorite TT. Great location. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The sites along the creek are super spacious. Just beware if you stay near the ditch, you may be visited by skunks at night!! Overall, we had an amazing experience.

"Goatheads all over!"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
This is a campground, not just a dump station. Park is paved and level. It is right beside the entrance to Canyon de Chelly tours. Rv dump was available but no running water. Very quiet since no roads nearby and we were the only campers. However, the whole park was covered with goatheads! Don't let your dogs out!
