This is about the only game in town. This RV park is a flat piece of gravel adjacent to a restaurant, a Best Western Motel and a drive in theater(!). It was clean, level, fairly quiet, treeless, plant less and featureless. It will be dusty on very windy days, a likely occurrence. Good antenna reception and our Verizon phone and broadband worked OK. - rncordy

Everything you basically need. Pool is the main attraction and it is very very popular. You get 1/2 off pool and green house when camping which makes it a good value. We usually go to the 21 and over green house section, well worth the extra money if you are not up for sharing the pool with 100 kids. Great views, perfect spot for a couple of nights especially if you are going through the area. We have been 3 times and will go back this fall. - Kevincolorado

Very nice hot springs and pool, an oasis in the high desert. Sites very long but not very wide. Big firepits, some fairly close to your neighbors camper,vehicle. Odd setup; if all sites are occupied, you have to go in the exit to get to the front of your site. Half the sites share same water hookup as neighbor so you run your hose under your rig. Big wide open, beautiful views. Wifi sporadically ok. All pull thrus. - jeeper13

The pool is the main attraction and the RV sites are a sideshow. Both were a disappointment for us. If you come here for the pool expect to be joined by the local population from morning to closing time. The pool water is hot, 98 F or higher, which made any prolong stay in the water somewhat dangerous and uncomfortable. Loud music is played over multiple speakers, which can be heard at the RV sites. Sounds of people screaming, yelling, and splashing can be heard at the RV sites till closing time. The most disturbing aspect of the RV sites are the overhead stadium bright lights. One was directly over our Motorhome. The sites are tight, dirt base, and dusty. It rained during the night and what a mess. The Wi-Fi is terrible. VZ 4G does not work well here. There are a total of two toilets and two shower stalls. The RV crowd, tent campers, cabin and lodge users all compete for those two toilets. Safety and security here was a concern for us. Rift raft pool users wander around the RV sites. Perhaps that is the reason for those bright lights at night. We had planned to stay two nights, but rejected any thought of another night. We stayed here in a Motorhome and we will never be back. - James Barr

Since I couldn't get ahold of a Visitor Ctr, I called local Sheriff Dept to confirm it was OK to overnight here (even though there is a sign that says it is OK to) and was told "yes you can, 1 night only". There was a music event in the park but was not crowded or too noisy. Great place to stay. Quiet and safe. Difficult to tell where to park, but we stayed on Spruce back by the trail, against the grass. - debmc

This is a free city park near the Upper Rio Grande River. Ask the Visitors Center for a one-night permit. It is located on Oak St. south of US 160. It was not open when we arrived so we parked without one and no questions were asked. RV sites are not marked. Apparently one parks beside the city park or in the dead end of Spruce St. where it meets the path along the river. The city park is well-kept, nicer than parking in a big box store parking lot. - Bill Strong

There are two sections to the park. The upper section has FHU but are VERY close together. The newer sites down by the Rio Grande River are W/E but spaced nicely apart with lots of trees. Electric and water were good (high pressure on the water). They have a sidewalk going around the lower section of the park and there is access to another sidewalk going to the City Park. There are a few Gazebos along the river and a nice pavilion with chairs. I was able to get WiFi on my Jetpack but there are no antenna stations. There are a few monthly people but the park is kept up. Managers very nice (workampers). The laundry room has 2 washers & 2 dryers, one of which was down. There is a laundromat in town called C2O Carwash & Laundry at the corner of Grand Ave & French St. - Kerch Family

Wooded campsite on the Rio Grande. There are gazebos and picnic tables along the river. Our gravel site was large, shaded and level. We made our own fire ring from the available rocks and there was free firewood for the taking. Staff was friendly and helpful. Del Norte does is not economically prosperous and the neighborhood around the park was a little run down, but the small downtown was interesting. - Bmattei

This is a hard park to evaluate. It's no longer a state park...more like a state recreation area. There was no check in and no rangers or camp hosts. You drive on a mile long stony road until you get to the campground, where suddenly the road is paved. There are pull thrus, pull ins and back in sites available. There is electric provided, but no water. You can see The Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park from the campground. There is a shelter at each site that either is there for the sun or the wind. It was hugely windy when we were there. A very large lake or reservoir is nearby. There were people scattered throughout the park, but nobody was very close to anybody else. I mean, this is a free overnight stay, it seemed, so I didn't know what to expect. It was very peaceful and quiet. We only saw 1 other person actually outside walking around. A lot of sagebrush but no trees anywhere. All in all it was a very nice stay for us and I would go back and stay 2 nights next time. It's about 8 miles from Hwy 17, and if you're going to Great Sand Dunes from that direction it is right on the way. - villager04

I was all set to pay my $70 first night and it ended up being free and I think that might be the case moving forward. The park looks like a scene out of a post apocalyptic movie (not in a bad way). I think there is a host who resides in a fenced in area but we never talked to her. Another camper did and said it's free and just pick a spot, so we did. I really enjoyed the park as it was about 5% full and very quiet. It has great views of the sand dunes and surrounding mountains. Watching the storms off in the distance was also cool. Sites are large and a lot of pull thru's to pick from. Cant beat free camping with electric and would definitely stay again if in the area. One thing to note is there is no water of any kind to be had. Stop at the National Park for dumping and water needs.

As the previous post said.... the place is a wildlife preserve. Was confusing when I got there, trying to find someone at the office. We stayed in the first pull-through in loop A. Power was available and that was all I needed. Spent one night and it was pretty quiet. Beautiful sunset. - ChrisInJesupIA
