Although the park advertises free WiFi availability, the executive section has zero connectivity. The owner has a few sites in that section with DSL capability for an additional fee of $20/month. We have a Verizon hotspot that would not connect either. The front desk informed us that the park was a Verizon dead zone because Verizon will not pay the fees to connect a cell tower in the area. If voice or Internet on Verizon is important to you, forget this park!! Their new feature is a dog park which is located at the back end of the property and is a mud pit for the most part, with lots of stickers. The park is located a few yards away from Interstate 10 so road noise is constant. We failed to appreciate the positive features of the park others have stated.

The Oasis has taken on the qualities of a permanent trailer park. We observed many permanent trailers, kids toys littered outside, and barking dogs at all hours of the night. Upon check in, the clerk offered the CATV listing with many exceptions to the quality of reception. We never found a WiFi signal during the few days we camped there. The park is beginning to show wear and tear. Hopefully, the park will find a new owner to turn things around.

This park is located in between a heavy equipment rental facility and a senior apartment residence. It is close to sightseeing attractions and national parks. The town location, however, brings road noise and business noise from the heavy equipment company next door. It has no pool or recreation facilities. A good spot for a one night stopover.

Date of Stay:

We failed to confirm the positive reviews previously written. The park is overpriced for the space and marginal amenities. They offer a 12 channel CATV, WiFi that comes and goes, no pool or hot tub as of May, and a dusty graveled surface. No AT&T wireless signal in the park--one needs to drive to town for that. The tall trees weep a clear sap all over the campsites, cars, and rigs. We had to wash off our windshields every day to drive. A big disappointment and we will try some other park when we drive through the area!!

Date of Stay:

One of the nicer parks in the Albuquerque area, but big rigs beware. We observed a large Class A motorhome towing escorted around a corner then becoming impaled on the split rale fence on the corner. Tight turns. The owner is around the park continuously and is very solicitous, eager to help you. The park is gravel and dust based. One day the owner spent time cleaning up vacant sites with a leaf blower. The process blew a fine red dust all over our rig, windows, tow, and grill. If we need to be in this location for business, we'll stay again and ask the owner not to blow dust around our campsite.

Date of Stay:

A freak dust/wind storm prompted us to pull into this park off US 84. We called from the road a few minutes before arriving, and the owner stated she had a water/electric site available for the day. She was most helpful in a grim weather situation so kudos to the park. However, the campsite was 20 feet from the active US 84 roadway. The rear of the park is bounded by an active railroad. Either way, noise is the norm. But we couldn't complain under the adverse weather situation and were thankful they had space for us.

This is the only decent campground in the Abilene area so we stay here by default. Some of the managers are in dire need of people skills. The park is dusty and sets on the access road to I-20 so you will have road noise. We may try alternate routing in future trips to avoid this area.

Date of Stay:

We spent 2 months at this campground to tend to some personal business. The park is clean, very well maintained and managed. The owners are on site daily and take an active role in the day-to-day issues of the campground. Wi-Fi is extra, if you desire. Rate reflects the monthly rate divided by 30. The park is in a country-like setting, away from road noise or heavy traffic. Will definitely return in the fall.

Date of Stay:

This park is about 500 yards from exit 501 off I-10. Road noise continuous. Some partial shaded sites but most are open. Daily cleaning of showers not evident. A dead roach was in the same bathhouse location for a period of 3 days. Way overpriced for the amenities. Will pass on this park next time.

Date of Stay:

Newer park located outside Lubbock city limits. No frills but safe place to stay. Two nice doggie parks on the premises. Great managers live on site. The bathrooms need daily cleaning and mopping. We choose this park every year when we come to Lubbock.

Date of Stay:

Convenient location off I-20. Pleasant resort atmosphere. The water/sewer/electric/CATV hookups were about 30 feet away from our outlets. Very odd locations for a back-in. The dog park was in dire need of mowing and maintenance. Staff helpful.

Date of Stay:

As others have mentioned, check in happens at a kiosk. No life forms are involved. No restrooms or showers. Washers/dryers are on site. We never saw a park representative for the entire week we camped here. No signage from I-30 or other access roadways. Good location if you need to be close to Dallas. Most residents are permanent. Dusty and gravel surface. But, Wi-Fi and CATV worked great!!

Date of Stay:

We stop here every year in the fall. Managers live on site and are very responsive to questions or concerns. The best place to camp near Lubbock. Clean facilities and park in general.

Date of Stay:

Convenient place to stop on I-20 for one night. The road noise is constant! CATV and Wi-Fi worked fine. Pads are concrete but many are broken and uneven. A work camper admitted that the park was old and they were trying to repair the concrete. Lots of long-term residents. Industrial businesses on all sides of the park. Will probably bypass this park in the future.

Date of Stay:

As per the previous reviewer, this is a great stopping point on I-40! There is also an on-site RV service/repair facility which we employed for some routine preventative maintenance on the coach. Amarillo isn't the garden spot of Texas and the high winds aren't great either. But, you can't beat the buy 2/get 3 nights price either! Join their VIP program, a freebie, and get another 20% discount including their service and meals! Will definitely stop here again when traveling west.
