Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is a mixed bag. Unfortunately there are no really great options in the Durango area. Alpen Rose is too crowded with sites way to close together. Many of the sites have the back of one RV up next to the back of another and many share utilities, too. This is a popular area and during the summer months and mostly you'll find that Alpen Rose is always full. One half of the park is big rig friendly so, you see all the big RVs here.

The back section is very shady with lots of trees - it can be difficult to park and maneuver there. We were not able to get our automatic Sat dish to see through the trees when we stayed there. While the front and side is wide open with no trees at all - this is where are those big rigs park.

The sites are gravel and the roads muddy and full of potholes. The bathroom/shower rooms are clean but older and in dated older buildings. If this campground would invest in some overall site improvements - replenished the gravel in the driveways, paved and leveled the sites and modernized the bathhouse it would be a great RV park in a great area. Until this happens we can't give this RV Park better than an "average" rating. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Durango is a very fun town to visit. Some very good restaurants, great night life and a nice downtown for shopping, etc. Many come to ride the train - be sure to read that it will take all day. If you have pets in your RV you may wish to arrange for a pet sitter. Many area campgrounds offer that service. The scenery, rivers, activities, eating and shopping make Durango a good place for an extended stay. Plus at approx 7,000' altitude it cools off at night and doesn't get too hot during the day.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Scottsdale, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We're staying here now - a 4 night stay and it's a very nice desert RV Park. Lots of room between campsites. Very nice bathrooms and water and Electric service.

Mountain views all around and large old Segura Cacti in most of the campsites. We've got a pull-thru which is a wide spot in the road kind of pull-thru. Nicely curbed and a nice picnic table, grill and fire ring with neatly raked gravel. The campsite is paved, not level, but just fine.

Lots to do here, but you are far from everything. It seems every place we've gone has been 29 miles away according to the GPS. The closest town Fountain HIlls is very southwestern and nice. But no Laundromat nearby. The closest we found was... you guessed it, 29 miles away.

We like it here very much and would return if we were in the area. We're here in April but I'm guessing May to Oct is VERY hot. Though in April it's 80 during the day and 55 each night - cooling off around 5 pm. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

As others have said it's a great park and there's a Walmart across the street. Yes and no. It is a great state park. We enjoyed the park, the sites and the showers and bathrooms are excellent. Lots of space between campsites and ringed by mountains close by.

"Across the street" makes you think that you are camping in the city - but this is not true. Once in the State Park it's as though you are a million miles away from any city. Very isolated and quiet. Warm days and very cool nights in April were terrific. In fact, like clockwork at 5 pm you turn off the A/C and open your windows. You awaken to 53 degrees and bright sun.

About a mile from your campsite is a major road (Oracle Rd) that goes all the way down into Tucson with all many of shopping and restaurants along the way. Directly across from the entrance to the State Park is an upscale shopping area with Walmart, yes, but lots of other businesses too. It's not like some busy shopping center spralled out across the street but clusters of stores and shops spread throughout a wooded and lovely area. There's even and In and Out Burger place immediately across Oracle from the State Park.

This is a very nice State Park and if you are in Tucson for a few nights it's a must stay. Most of the sites have electricity and water-but none have sewer. So, you'll be limited by your gray water tank size in most cases.

Ps. We liked Loop B much better than Loop A. We camped at Catalina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a day at Seguaro National Park and a day at the Pima Air and Space Museum. Both were nice. The NP wasn't great but it wasn't bad either.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We spent two nights here on our way from San Antonio to Tuscon. We very much liked Las Cruces and the area around the campground. The campsites are way too close together... but, we had no one around us so it wasn't an issue. The bathroom was clean but very small (mens) for such a large RV resort. We liked staying there because it wasn't very crowded the weather was nice and we really enjoyed the area around the RV Park. The folks in the office were pleasant and capable. We would stay there again - but not between May and Sept - too hot then. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Farmers Market on 3 blocks of Main Street on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Lots of fun on a Sat morning. There's a RV Parts and Sales place just adjacent to this RV Park and a very good Italian restaurant just a few more steps away.

Nicest CG north of Ft. Worth. Lots of full-timers, work campers. clean and pleasant. Sites too close together. Almost always some sites upfront for overnighters though. Helpful managers. We camped at Northlake Village RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Closest RV park to Texas Motor Speedway - well, except for the RV parking in the Speedway parking lot.
