Our Opinion: Pleasant urban park. We would stay here again and recommend this park to others.

Date of Stay: 3/23 and 3/24/2008

Weather During Stay: Pleasant, sunny, days with highs in the 70‘s, lows in the 40‘s.

Rate: We paid $15/night for FHU, half price because we are Escapees. Passport America discount applies during off season.

Sites: All sites are FHU with 50 amps and cable TV. New pull-though sites at the back of the park are unappealing compared to older back-in sites.

Verizon: Excellent reception for phones; aircard on Broadband.

Elevation/landscape: Sunny Acres used to be a mobile home park, but has been slowly converted to an RV park by the current RV’ing owners. The park has mature landscaping and trees, and most sites have grass. Most sites are shaded, but the new pull-throughs and some of the new back-in sites are in full sun.. Most sites (but not all) very large with plenty of room between sites.

Terrain: Flat campground in an urban setting. Typical urban noise level.

Lighting: Night lighting is not particularly obtrusive.

Favorite Sites: Any of the back-in sites EXCEPT the new ones along the front. Pull-through sites are unappealing.

Hiking/Walking: The park is large enough to walk laps, but a better walk is along the Rio Grande riverfront a short drive away.

Special Features: Large, grassy, shaded sites are unusually spacious for an urban RV park (or any private RV park).

This is a pleasant, well-managed park in an urban area. Easy access to shopping (groceries, Mountain View natural foods coop, Target), medical facilities, fuel… typical urban amenities.
