Horizon Sands RV Park, Altus, OK

This park caters mainly to contractors and extended stays but they were able to accommodate me for three days and I saw one or two other trailers pulling in and out while I was there.  The owner was very friendly but she is retiring May 15th and the new owners are a group that ownContinue reading “Horizon Sands RV Park, Altus, OK”

Two Quick Overnights in West Texas

I stayed at Flatonia Ranch RV Park in Flatonia, TX and Van Horn RV Park, in Van Horn, TX while I was on a quick trip back to California in November 2018.  For some reason, my reviews at the time didn’t get posted properly (internet?) and I’ve since lost the drafts. To be fair toContinue reading “Two Quick Overnights in West Texas”

Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque,TX

When you are about 10 miles away, you will see nothing but flat plains for miles and miles and wonder if you are in the right place.  All of a sudden, at about 5 to 6 miles out, you will start seeing the canyons and the hills.  It’s quite an eye-opening sight.  There’s a reasonContinue reading “Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque,TX”

Oasis State Park, Portales, NM

This is a holiday weekend (Easter) and I wasn’t able to get a site with hookups so we are technically “boondocking” for 3 nights although I paid for the site.  $10 a night plus a $12 fee for booking online. This small state park is just a few miles from Cannon Air Force Base andContinue reading “Oasis State Park, Portales, NM”

Traveler’s World Campground, Clovis, NM

Traveler’s World appears to be a former KOA campground.  The owner tells me that his in-laws purchased it and completely cleaned it up to make it the best campground in Clovis (accordingly to yearly votes).  We left our previous place after one night because there wasn’t any place to walk the dogs and this placeContinue reading “Traveler’s World Campground, Clovis, NM”

Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, NM

I only stayed here for one quick overnight because there wasn’t much area to walk the dogs at all. There were a few small green areas but they were part of the landscaping. Everything else was gravel and dirt. This RV Park boasts the best and least expensive souvenir shop in Roswell and Roswell isContinue reading “Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, NM”

Chupadera Mountain View RV Park, San Antonio, New Mexico

There use to be an RV park listed in this vicinity called Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park. It appears that one is no longer here but this new one has opened recently and serves the same clientele. This is just on the edge of the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The very personable owners toldContinue reading “Chupadera Mountain View RV Park, San Antonio, New Mexico”

The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park

We toured Petrified Forest National Park in early April by motorhome. Our first stop was the Painted Desert Visitor Center. There are several buildings here with a gift shop, restaurant and a bookstore/ranger station. I went in to the ranger station to get a map and to get my two Bark Rangers registered. Although whileContinue reading “The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park”

Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, AZ

I stayed here for 3 nights and would consider a long term stay at this KOA. The sites are spacious, there are nice amenities, there are many restaurants nearby, and the National Park is 23 miles away. Although we had terrible weather while here, with winds gusting up to 50 mph, I could still seeContinue reading “Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, AZ”

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, NV

I spent two weeks here at Lake Mead National Park in the Lake Mead RV Village. This is one of several camping choices you can make while touring the national park. RV Village at Boulder Beach, with full hookups, is $28 a day. If you want full hook ups with an unobstructed lake view (oneContinue reading “Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, NV”
