Reviewed 17 September 2012

Pulled in here during the middle of the night; the registration process was easy to follow, finding an open campsite a little tougher. IIn the morning, we awoke to find we were in a pretty nice place.

One of the quirks was the shower rooms; you had to go to the store to buy a token, which was good for seven minutes of hot water. You put the token in some kind of meter contraption and the hot water came on; it cut out abruptly at what I can only imagine was exactly seven minutes. More than enough time to take a shower, but I bet if you had a tape recorder going, you'd hear the water turn on and then a yelp seven minutes later.

Store was well-stocked, including wtih local products and (yum) home-made pies.

This is a nice little corner of the world, mountains at your back, desert in front. As an overnight stop in an RV you could do much worse.

Rating is 3 points for the place and a bonus point for the store, polite staff, and funky showers.

Reviewed 28 July 2010

It was HOT at 106 but our shady campsite on GRASS!! next to a rumbling stream was euphoric. Quiet, well maintained, tons of space, beautiful view. One of the few campsites that we enjoyed in our 3 month journey, could of stayed a month.

The host family especially the lady was fanatic about cleaning and took it personally if the bathrooms were dirty. The bathrooms certainly did need a rebuild, but the showers blasted hot water.

Highly recommended, but bring a tarp for more shade in July.
