This is an old park. They have updated the electric and have good water and sewer but the spots were SO TIGHT that if there had been anyone on either side of us it would have been impossible to put our slides out. It was very stressful trying to get placed just right so we could. We camped at Ponil Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

According to the owner, this park was built in the 1960s therefore some of the sites are close however all the utilities have been updated and everything worked fine. We stay here for a week and and found this CG to be a great value. We had full hook-ups and lots of shade. In fact most sites have plenty of shade and the grounds are clean. The CG is right next to Hwy 64 but that road is lightly traveled so there was little noise from it. There are about five "full-timers" except that they only keep their rigs at Ponil full-time and occupy them only parts of the year according to the owner. We camped at Ponil Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

We were looking for a full service CG in the general area to refresh our tanks after a week of boondocking. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This CG met all of our needs. The owner was helpful and friendly. The sites are arrayed across a large open grass field with the utility posts aligned RVs park alternating direction giving the sites that are close together a feeling of more spaciousness and preserving some of the common green space in the CG. There are also a few sites along the perimeter with more shade. The sites are mostly level with grass/gravel surface. There's good ATT and Verizon cell coverage. There's wifi which we did not use. There's a laundry room on site. As noted in other reviews, the CG feels a bit dated, yet everything works and we enjoyed our brief stay. We were the only guests on our visit. We camped at Ponil Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is an older park. Roads are dirt, some sites are paved, but mainly grass/dirt and level. Maneuvering a big rig can be a challenge, just watch for trees. Roads are wide but not well defined. Sites have shade, utility locations are adequate and up to spec. The owner is nice, lives on site and understands the park is dated. This is a no frills park as most neighbors are Philmont Staff or Boy Scouts coming to the Ranch. We camped at Ponil Campgrounds in a Motorhome.
