"Great campground on the lake, wish we could have stayed longer!"

We stayed just one night at Kaibab Lake and really wanted to stay longer. However, we were racing a spring storm and it was either leave quickly or be stuck for a week during a windstorm with possible snow in the forecast. We did enjoy our brief... Read more

"Large pull-throughs in a well-maintained RV park."

We needed hook-ups for two days to keep the puppers cool in record-breaking triple digit heat in late April. Quail Run was recommended to us by another park that was closing for the summer. We found it to be very clean and well-maintained. Most of... Read more

"Bluewater Lake State Park is lovely with lake access, fun trails, and several great campgrounds."

We stayed five nights at Bluewater Lake State Park and absolutely loved it. As others have mentioned, the park considers each loop (Northpoint, Lakeside, Upper Electric Loop, Canyonside, and Pinon Cliffs) as a different campground. We stayed in... Read more

"Great campground right next to the Coronado Historical Site."

After a stretch of dry camping, we needed access to shopping, laundry etc. and Coronado Campground was a great spot. It didn’t hurt that you can literally hop the fence over to Bosque Brewery either. Lol. The campground spaces are fairly... Read more

"Close spaces, but lots of amenities and a great base to visit Carlsbad Caverns."

We are ae not typically fans of private parks, but we needed a site close to town to visit family. We opted to stay 7 nights since the weekly rate was a significant discount. The sites/roads are gravel with some trees. The sites a combination of... Read more

"Great park with fantastic views and a lovely interpretive trail through the lava fields."

We loved going from White Sands to Valley of Fires – what a contrast! The campground at Valley of Fires is lovely, with very spacious sites spread out so you have lots of space and stunning views of the mountains and lava fields. Each site has a... Read more

"We stayed here to visit White Sands NP, but it’s a great state park and campground in its own right."

While Oliver Lee is billed as the closest campground to White Sands NP, it’s still a 22 mile drive each way. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The park ranger/host went far above and beyond when we arrived hoping to snag a first... Read more

"Another fantastic Escapee Member Co-op! Lovely park and friendly folks."

We stayed a week in the dry camping area, which is a paved parking lot. We had the option of moving to a FHU site for part of our week, but opted not to so we could remain parked next to our friends with a shared patio area. The things you do to... Read more

"Nice campground, super convenient for visiting Kartchner Caverns."

We enjoyed our stay at Kartchner Caverns State Park. You will definitely, want reservations at least during peak season for both the campground and the caverns tour. Both were full/sold out during our stay in late March. The campground is... Read more

"Wildflowers, awesome views, a choice of trails and very spacious sites. We enjoyed our stay!"

We had just two nights at Picacho Peak State Park. While I really, really want to pronounce it like the Pokémon character, sadly it is not. It’s actually from a Spanish word meaning “a large pointed isolated hill” and is pronounced pi·ca·cho -... Read more

Go Around the Bend: Where Angels Fear to Tread
