The Perfect Getaway.
My wife and I just got back from staying at this park and it was great. The host was friendly and the scenery is amazing. If you can afford to be unplugged for several days, this is the best park for it.
This has truly had to be the most serene place on Earth! Although off the beaten path, once you get here you don’t want to leave! Clean facilities, ice and other items for sale to make your stay the best it can be. Great website and easy online booking. Camp host is so helpful and nice. Pet friendly too!
We feel so fortunate to have found this lovely campground near Cloudcroft. We stayed briefly last year and loved it so we came back for a week this time. Pros: Lovely views, peaceful, clean facilities, nice hot showers.
