Let me start by saying that I fulltime rv and rarely stay in RV parks. I like space, privacy, quiet. When I do stay in one it is for the following reasons and because I can't find another option in an area. The good about this place is that the person at check in, probably a work camper, was friendly and helpful. It has frontage on the San Juan river which is a huge plus. One can fish, or hang out, or wade in the river. There is also a pond which is apparently stocked with fish. The restroom/shower was clean and well maintained. The laundry was good and cheap. Those are all the reasons I stayed there and it was worth it for $32/night. As usual with rv parks the adjoining sites were 10 feet away and the guy next to us parked his jeep about 3 feet from our rig. Our space was gravel. They allow campfires. Thankfully the people next to us did not have a fire as the fire grate was about 2-3 feet from my front tire and probably would have damaged the paint or something on our rig. Got a look at some other parks here that looked terrible and cost more. This is probably the best of the bunch and if in the area again I would stay here.
