True, there are no restrooms/showers, but this fine looking park does have full electric and water hookups. There's plenty of maneuvering room, long pullthroughs, no dirt, nice green grass, quaint gazebos and nice folks. Billy the Kid must have had class because everyone here was great. The homestyle burger joint across the street serves fresh and hot classic American eats cooked up by a cook you can say thank you to. I popped in the museum to pay my $20 and was impressed with the extent of... Read More

Same with the railroad, no horns! Relatively peaceful for being on the road, I'll gladly stay here again. Thanks Billy!

This campground is fairly basic, but had the full 50 amp hook ups required. For $20 a night, it was perfect. The gentleman and his wife who run the campground also run run the Billy The Kid Museum which is a block away (which is where you pay for campsite) and are delightful. No restroom, showers or laundry, so if you aren't self contained perhaps a consideration.

I stayed here around the middle of March, and for me it was perfect. I'm by myself and wanted to see the Billy the Kid Museum and grave site, being a huge fan of all things old west. For $20 a night, you get full hookups, and the wireless served me well - much better than most campgrounds I've been in - and I use it a lot. There is no cable tv, but I don't care about that. I didn't try but you probably won't get any over-the-air channels here either, it's pretty remote. Town has a couple of restaurants,... Read More

I didn't try but you probably won't get any over-the-air channels here either, it's pretty remote. Town has a couple of restaurants, a couple of stores and gas stations. This is not the prettiest campground for sure, gravel and grass. But the sites are level and the pull-throughs are plenty big. I have a 31 ft motorhome and pull a car and have tons of room left over. It's about 35 miles south of I-40, just take 84 south out of Santa Rosa. You can pay at the site with envelopes provided (cash or checks), or at the BTK Museum, where you can also use a credit card. The owners here are super nice and they run the Billy The Kid Museum which is within walking distance of the RV park. Museum admission is only $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and it's well worth it. They have Billy's rifle for heaven's sake. The grave site is located near the site of the old fort about 5 miles from here. There is a museum there as well, but it is more oriented toward period items and doesn't really have much on BTK. The Museum by the RV park is much better. You should also take the walking tour at the site of the old fort if you have time. They have a marker there where the house stood that Billy was killed in. So, in short, I would come back to this park for sure. It's quiet, very affordable, the sites are not right on top of each other and there's plenty of history here to keep you busy for a couple of days or so.
