This campground has some awesome possibilities. The location is spectacular, being right on the San Juan River and a private pond. Walking by the river at any time of the day is so special. There are many areas of the park that could be updated and improved. The swimming pool is a joke and the playground needs help. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained, but could use updating. There is a general air of benign neglect overall. The store is very well stocked, the staff is very helpful, friendly and go above board to be helpful. A site along the river is definitely worth the extra charge, but there are a lot of options to select depending on what you are looking for.
