Try to find out where the ants are coming from. We had them following the electrical hookup to the inside. You can coat the line with vaseline to keep them from following it.
Also, Terro ant baits are great to use--to noxious fumes or poison residue.
We tent camped for 45~ years and only got a pop-up to get off the ground. We love to still feel like we are camping but not sleeping on the ground. My husband talks about getting a travel trailer, but I am mildly claustrophobic and don't want to sleep in a tin can!
Always ask! Made two fairly long trips last summer with motel stays on the way home. One place that should have been easy was having remodeling done, so extra spaces were in use. Granted, we were not at places with limited vacancies, but did not have a problem finding a place to drop the pup...
We have stayed here frequently over the last 25 years. There have been lots of changes in the facility, but it is still a clean, nice campground. It is privately owned and wif-fi is not part of the package, but it is a nice place to stay and the management is accommodating.
This was a nice campground. It is right on the highway and the area for pop-ups is wide open. You will also hear/wake up when the train goes past at night. By the 3rd night I was able to sleep through it. We only had other campers in our area a couple of nights and they were not close to us...
It was a wonderful trip! Lightner Creek Campground is a great place. They actually adhere to their posted rules, making for a clean, quiet campground. This is the first place we ever camped where they came in and raked the sites to get ready for the next guests!
Just got back from a week at Lightner Creek Campground at Durango. Tent camped there many years ago and this time in our pup. Very well cared for campground, quiet, and reasonable. Would definitely go back!
It's been several years, but we tent camped at Lightener Creek Campground and really enjoyed it. We have made reservations for a week in mid-August this year to stay with our pop-up.

We are planning a trip to the Big Bend area in September, and have made reservations at the Monarch Motel & RV Park. Has anyone stayed there, or elsewhere in the area that you recommend? We will be there most of a week, so I am interested in having toilet and shower facilities.
