Thanks for taking the time to submit a review about Wine Ridge. Although it certainly isn't the 5-star review always we aim for, we sincerely appreciate all the feedback we get from our guests as it really helps us maintain our gorgeous resort and improve all our amenities and services.
Wine Ridge is located about a mile off the main highway and about 3 miles from the center of the town of Pahrump. We have quiet, upscale residential neighborhoods surrounding us on two sides and over 350,000 acres of BLM surrounding us on the other two sides. Wine Ridge Resort features unobstructed views across the Spring Mountain National Recreation Area which is crowned by 11,900' Mount Charleston. We are located at an altitude of 2850' and there is an easy, gentle grade up to the resort. We aren't aware of any rig-scraping issues in getting to, entering or traversing our resort. We do have two speed bumps upon entering the resort past our security gate and the maximum speed within the resort is 5 mph.
All the RV sites in our resort are gravel, plumb level and each has a 6'x12' concrete patio. Our roads are paved. We have a pull-through row with approximately 20 sites and five more rows containing a total of approximately 100 sites.
We are located in the high desert and our trees and shrubs are relatively small and do not providing much shade. On the plus side, rarely do we hear of any guests having trouble with trees blocking their satellite signal. We do not provide cable tv connections at our sites as we get about 15 over the air local TV channels and we think satellite TV is most likely the (near) future of digital entertainment.
Speaking of the future of digital entertainment and communications, the internet and WiFi at our resort has always been free to our guests and we plan to keep it that way. We are currently working with our internet provider to increase our bandwidth availability an we are planning to also upgrade our WiFi systems including the installation of additional WiFi towers within the resort. In the interim, if our guests need to perform large data transfers or wish to stream videos, movies, TV, live sports, etc., we strongly recommend that they bring their own personal hotspots to achieve optimum internet speeds. The location of the resort high on a ridge above the town of Pahrump gives us pretty good reception for most if not all the mainstream 'hotspot" data providers (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.). We also think that the use of personal hotspots for large data transmission requirements such as file downloading and video streaming, etc., are probably the future of the Internet rather than having to rely on the unknown security safeguards of WiFi systems provided by hotels, resorts, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Personal hotspots with unlimited data are quickly becoming a great, highly secure Internet connectivity solution for RVers on the go.
We're glad you got to check out our "Bark Park." We welcome all good and peace-loving dogs and, as you noted, we do have bag dispensers and waste collection station at the dog park which is conveniently located in the northwest corner of the resort a short stroll away from the RV sites.
We hope next time you visit with us that you'll try our restrooms, showers, laundry room pool and hot tub. We strive to keep them sparkling clean and fresh and we are proud to have achieved a solid "10" rating on our restrooms from Good Sam over the past 6 years.
Sorry to hear about that naughty pack rat! Are you sure he wasn't a stowaway that hitched a ride? We often see rabbits, hummingbirds, and an occasional Road Runner in the resort. And sometimes we hear the coyotes at night. But we can't recall ever having any trouble with pack rat visitors here!
We hope you'll come see us again.
Until then, wishing you safe travels!
The Wine Ridge Team
