Since we are 2 Miles from the Main Interstate, there is Little Highway Noise.  For groceries, before coming to our park you can turn left at the junction of Hwy 209 (Exit 332) and Route 66, and go just two blocks west!!  Then come back east 0.7 miles to our park.  We'll be on the right side, so stay in the right lane at no more than 25 mph.

We are only two blocks from Tucumcari Ranch Supply on Lake Street.

We are mostly an overnight RV park.  Stay with your kind of people, the overnight traveler.

Don't take your good looking RVs to dumpy RV parks, always inspect.

Inspect, Compare, and Price to Other Parks.  We solicit no reviews, but watch out for solicited reviews by others.  Most of our customers don't bother to write reviews...they just keep coming!

We have adequate 50 amp that will run your RV's needs, so we discourage people from using downsizing pigtail adapters.  We always keep our WiFi and Cable TV in peak operating condition.
