The park has new owners, recently dropped KOA and reduced prices. Rates includes 20% discount - 10% from Good Sam and 10% from discount coupon received at Ft Stockton RV Park. Nice large sites with full hook ups, cable TV and Wi-Fi.

Date of Stay:

Not recommended as this is an over priced old park not equipped for today’s rigs with arrogant management. We missed the park because an exiting Motorhome was blocking the low level entrance sign and had to drive through 3 miles of the congested tourist trap street until we were able to turn around at a rotary. After paying $300 for a week, we were then directed to our site where we had to back uphill 150 yards, carefully avoiding the vehicles parked in the road, into our inadequate sized site at the dead end. Except for the smallest cars, there is no room for parking at 98% of their sites. The redeeming factor was that the sites around us were too small to be used so the population density around us was low with no traffic and we parked in an empty site as did most of our neighbors. Utilities all worked fine but no cable TV at our site. The Wi-Fi worked well most of the time. The final insult was a note taped to our door the day before we were scheduled to depart reminding us checkout time was 11 AM and that our card will be charged $3 for every hour we were late.

The park roads are narrow as are the many, various sized sites. Most are back-ins and nearly everyone needs to park their tow vehicle in a designated parking area: the spaces of which are too small for larger pickups to negotiate easily. Those lucky enough to be able to park their vehicle on site, often need to move it to allow entry or exit of other rigs. Wi-Fi works good and there are lots of available channels on the cable TV: all but a few are very clear. They have a huge off-leash dog run area, which at times was occupied by an unattended dog. They also have a nice little fish pond. The place appears to be very well maintained, but cramped.

Date of Stay:

Park is near 100% asphalt in a urban location. Sites are plenty wide enough for any slide-outs and there is an evergreen bush barrier between sites. It appears that many occupants are seasonal or permanent residents which is not offensive because all rigs appear to be in fairly good condition, many with huge flower arrangements. They have a green area with a large, perhaps 1/4 acre, off-leash dog park and a private fishing pond inhabited by lots of ducks and geese. Cable TV reception was OK and is basically limited to networks and shopping/government/evangelist channels. There were no normal basic CTV Channels such as USA,TBS,TNT etc. Wi-Fi is available from a park resident for $3/day or $15/week and worked well most of the time. If all residents/guests were home with extra vehicle parked by their rigs, entry and exit of many sites could become difficult. Nearly every square inch of asphalt is dedicated to parking or road.

The park is roughly half permanent mobile homes which are mostly separate from RVs but everything appeared to be well maintained despite being past its prime. Reminded me of a typical southern snowbird park. RV sites were long, narrow back-ins but since they tend to use every other site, there was plenty of room. If they were full, you may have very close neighbors. Rate is based on weekly with tax. Wi-Fi is free for one hour per day and worked well. Additional time can be purchased for $3 a day or $15 per week. Had some fuzzy channels on their cable TV. Since there were no Park Rules provided, it appeared that washing vehicles was OK, of which we took advantage.

Date of Stay:

Most park sites share a utility island with another rig facing the opposite direction. The park was OK but appears to be somewhat neglected. Wi-Fi however, was excellent. We opted for cable TV instead of a sewer hook-up, which was a mistake because is was barely visible through the snow. Half of water, electric and cable sites need to back up a short distance to the dump station which is on the entrance/exit main road.

Date of Stay:

Large gravel sites with large trees and plenty of room. They have recently upgraded the electrical service with new power pedestals on one side of the park. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked fine.

Price includes tax which is a bit over priced for what you get. Park has no Cable, Wi-Fi, 50 amp, or pool. It has two sections, a lower under larger trees and an upper which has smaller trees 15 - 20 feet tall all of which need to be trimmed. We did not enter the lower section but it was hard to find an upper section site where you could avoid contact with small tree branches. We were on the high end of the park and had barely enough water pressure to take a shower which probably is not an issue on the lower sites. A fairly active railroad track is less then 200 yards from the park and town. There were a few over the air TV channels which we left on all night to drown out the train noise.

Date of Stay:

Rate is based on combination of weekly and daily back in site. Thinking the riverfront sites would be full, we stayed in an interior back in and rarely had neighbors. They were back to back sites and since most were empty we actually pulled through as did most others that entered these sites, which is not an option if they are full. Sites were fairly close and this worked fine for us. The only river access is from one of the tree lined river sites. If they are full you cant get to the small river. TV and WI-FI worked fine and many trees provided plenty of shade. It appears that the park is right on the edge of cell phone service. It worked maybe 5% of the time, but just up the road it worked fine. They have a nice enclosed off leash dog run and a small walking trail around the edge of the park.

Date of Stay:

Rate includes the entrance fee. This is a very nice well maintained park. Sites are spacious and paved with full hook ups. We discovered out last day when we turned on our PC that it also has WI-FI that worked reasonable well. There are several over the air TV stations from Denver and it has coin laundry as well.

Rate is based to buy 2 get 1 free hot deal. The park is a few miles north with a great view overlooking Casper. The sites were reasonably level and Cable TV & WI-FI worked fine. Indoor pool is listed as heated but we never felt any heat entering the pool and the water temperature was about 70, which is perhaps the desired level. After swimming some it was OK. Hot tub was warm but not hot & Laundry closes with store.

Date of Stay:

Owner recently converted park back to KOA and has been making many improvements. Cable TV & WI-FI work good as did all the utilities. They also have a small off leash enclosed dog yard with dog toys. Park was quiet as it is away from the highway airport & trains. Owners were very friendly and we would return.

This is a nice little Good Sam city park located on a hill overlooking the city with a nice view of Scotts Bluff. The sites are nice and roomy, have good Cable TV & the WIFI and lots of green grassy areas and away form city & train noise. There is not alot of shade but most sites have a medium size tree. Park host are very friendly and helpful. Rate is based on weekly stay with Good Sam discount.

This is a nice quiet park, 4 miles north of town, with a great view of the mountains. Sites are plenty wide enough for any rig. The park is on the edge of the US Forest Service and many trails are available for hiking, dog walking and horseback riding. Owners are very nice and run a good clean operation. Rate is based on their buy 5 nights get one day free deal.

Date of Stay:

Park is basic hard pan gravel with little grass. There are many large trees that offer a reasonable amount of shade and the park has a fence around most of it. We were there a month, which is reflected in the rate, and experienced some electrical problems at 2 different sites and had to use 30 amp service to avoid low voltage service interruption. This is probably the nicest park in the area but the biggest problem is that Dalhart has two train depots, one of which is across the street from the park. The trains on the other end of town, however, are the ones that make most of the noise. Keep your windows closed with a TV on and you will probably be OK. Owners live on site but tend to not be around much and most people have to self register.
