This was our second night stop on a trip from Chama, NM to Hondo, TX. All sites are pull through which is great when you don't want to disconnect. Not much scenery at this location if you are looking for trees or mountains but then I grew up in this type of terrain. The sites were well spaced and level and each site has a flagstone patio. The camp host and others in the park were friendly.
We stayed here overnight during a trip from Chama, NM to Hondo, TX. This is a small park with a few spaces but they were well separated. The sites, as well as the rest of the park, were well landscaped and neat. The site we were in was one of two pull throughs. The owners were awesome people - very helpful and friendly.
We chose this location because of the proximity to the Chama River but also because it is a short distance to some excellent trout fishing in Colorado (La Manga Creek, Conejos River). The fishing on the Chama River has not been outstanding but has been good because the water level is low.
The weather has been much cooler than Texas so it is enjoyable outside. There is a combination Lowes Supermarket/Ace Hardware in Chama for most items you might need. Several good restaurants in town. And then you have the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad for a nice trip to Antonito, CO.
Pagosa Springs, CO is 48 miles away. They have a nice Walmart and many nice restaurants as well as the Hot Springs for a relaxing day in the pools. The drive from Chama to Pagosa Springs includes a lot of beautiful scenery. While in the Pagosa Springs area, a drive over Wolf Creek Pass will take you through some beautiful scenery to South Fork, CO.
We stayed here one night in our motorhome traveling from St. Augustine, FL to Texas. Very nice park with paved roads and concrete pads and patios. Beautiful lake for relaxing or fishing - even small boats with electric motors are available. Our site was a pull through and was spacious and level.
I can't comment on WiFi other than it did not stay up long enough to connect but that was not surprising since it is Tengo Internet.
The entrance and exit can be very congested. We had 2 motorhomes ahead of ours going in and one behind us. Also had people in pickups and cars trying to get out but we basically had everything blocked.
We stopped here in our motorhome traveling from St. Augustine, FL to Texas. All sites are nice long, level pull throughs. That was great for us because we really did not want to unhitch for one night. WiFi is an additional charge of $1/night and service was decent for Tengo Internet. I wish I could have taken some pictures but it was raining while we were here. Staff in the office was friendly and helpful. If we are in the area again we would definitely spend some time in this park.
We arrived here on November 1, 2015 and will be here until March 31, 2016. This is a wonderful small park on Pellicer Creek a short drive from St. Augustine and Palm Coast. This is a winter destination with most people spending the winter here so reservations are advisable. The owner and campground hosts, as well as other campers, have been fantastic.
This is a small gated campground with security cameras which the campground hosts can view from their site.
A small fishing dock is provided and I have seen many fish caught there.
WiFi is excellent as is the provided DirecTV system - 169 channels and they provide they receiver.
The pictures on their website are excellent representations of the campground appearance.
Our GPS brought us right to the campground but Google Maps is incorrect. Use the following directions listed on the website.
We are located 3/4 of a mile south on US1 from I95 exit 298. 29°39'12.3"N 81°17'15.8"W
We stayed here one night in our motorhome traveling from North Carolina to Florida. The staff is very friendly and helpful and you are escorted to you site.
There is a fishing pond with a nice fountain in it. Beautifully lighted at night. Covered picnic tables along one side.
I had to do very little leveling after we got parked. Nice crushed rock roads and sites.
Wonderful Park Just Outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park
We stayed here for a week in our motorhome. We were in beautiful site #1 on the creek - about 15 feet away. In addition to the RV sites, they have 16 tent sites and 18 cabins from rustic to modern to a group cabin. The owners and their family were very friendly and helpful. The campground is convenient to Bryson City but the campground store handles a large selection of items.
I understand the creek is very popular for tubing during the summer.
We stayed here 4 days in our motorhome.
Getting to the campground from Fayetteville, WV was a slow process due to the mountain roads (WV16 and US60). Many twists and turns with 2 8% downgrades of 3 to 4 miles each but well worth the effort. No problems or worries if you take your time. And truck lanes periodically will allow traffic to pass.
This is really a beautiful area. It is also coal mining country so if you don't know anything about coal, visit the Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley just a few miles away or drive on up US60 toward Charleston.
As this is coal country, expect the trains that run along the river here on the opposite bank but they did not keep us awake.
Also nearby is the New River Gorge Bridge. A long, high bridge - 2 Statues of Liberty could be place underneath it atop the Empire State Building with 20 feet to spare.
The people running this campground are friendly and helpful.
Cell phone was good but not great on Verizon and free WiFi was excellent.
