A beautiful mountain setting with lots of trees. Although their website says that they have multiple "lakes", they are actually ponds that are mostly dried up. The electric is shared between RVers, you may need 50' of power cord to plug-in. The sewer hook-up is also questionable. Some sites had the sewer hook-up where a 20' hose would work, but some sites such as the guy next to us needed 3-20' (60' total) sewer hoses to connect. The sites where most of the BIG Rigs went are not even close to being level. Park is in severe disrepair with dusty rutted roads. If you have very low standards, this RV Park will be fine for you. We will never stay here again.

The place has older mobile homes occupied, newer villas for rent, and older RV sites for rent. The updated swimming pool is very nice. The updated boat docks are nice. Most of the RV sites are 30 amp, but a couple are 50 amp. Be sure to bring 30' of water and sewer hose. Some RV sites have the utilities close to the RV where 10' of hoses would work, but many need 30' of hoses to connect. The RV sites are very close together. Some people can not pull out their awnings do to these small RV sites. Lake LBJ (aka Llano River) is a lake (dammed River) and as with most lakes it is not as clean as some people would like it to be. Be sure to visit where Slab Road and the Llano River cross, it is a unique area of rock formations (this is within bicycle distance). Also the local grocery store (HEB) is within bicycle distance. Overall, I would come back because the RV Park is in a good location of the Texas Hill Country. The biggest downfall is the RV sites are small, but the people are nice.

The weekly rate was $75.00 (75/7=11). We gave this park an overall rating of 9 because the RV Park was clean, secured, and all amenities that were advertised worked. Our Verizon internet card did not work in Big Spring, TX, so we asked if the Wi-Fi actually worked or just sometimes worked. Management assured we would have NO problems. Wi-fi worked GREAT! The cable channel line-up was incredible! The place was clean! And the management was extremely nice! The reason for not getting a rating of 10 was because of location. Big Spring is an oil producing town, but they are not reaping the rewards of high oil prices. Approximately 50% of the businesses were closed. The town actually looked like it was on the economic down cycle. On a great note, we went to Big Spring Mall and bought several designer clothing for 20% of retail price of what we would have paid in any other town that was in an economic up cycle. This is NOT a destination area of Texas but this RV Park is a GREAT place to rest for a few days!

When we checked in the unfriendly lady tried to charge us $10 more than we were quoted on the phone. She gave us our site number and said if somebody was still in it to come back to the office and she would give us another site. When we got to the site, there was still somebody in it, so the office accommodated us with another site. The office knew the person that was on our site the office originally assigned us wanted to stay one more night and they knew we were coming in but didn't have the previous tenant out before we got there. They gave us somebody else's site who then had to wait for the other people to move to get the site that we were originally suppose to have. We were told we would have wifi at our site. The wifi does NOT work at our site! Lots of seasonals/permanents with children and dogs running wild in the RV section. The streets are narrow with lots of cars parked everywhere. This can be an issue for a big rig. Sites share the electric pedestal and you must have long water, sewer and/or electrical lines to hook up depending on where the utilities are located on your site.

The sites are fine gravel. Extremely clean RV Park with friendly staff. Wifi works great in lower section of RV Park. Within walking distance of Elephant Butte State Park, which is free to walk into. We would stay there again!

The sites are nice. The Rec Hall has NO heat or air conditioning. The outside swimming pool is small. The wifi is slow and sometimes it does not work. The cable TV has a few channels. We would NOT stay there again!
