Stayed 8 nights (March 30-April 7, 2015). One of the friendliest campgrounds in 7 years of full-timing. Owners enjoy hosting campers and it shows in how they manage the campground and interact with campers. Very clean. 360-degree views of mountains and plains. Large easy in and easy out level graveled sites. (1-ton dually and 38-foot 3-slide fifth wheel) Great reliable WiFi. Easy on and off Hwy 50. They were working to get pool ready for season. Week we were there, they were working on a large dog run. Propane on site at fair price. They had a sign-up list in the laundry room for a campground potluck the weekend after we left. Laundry room clean with HOT water for whites and reasonable prices with working washers and large commercial dryers. Would be remiss if I didn't mention wind, but that is Colorado on the plains...it comes and it goes. Even without a satellite dish, there are plenty of television stations even with the roof antenna down. Night skies afforded good star gazing without the city lights. Pronghorn antelope wandered outside the campground's ten acres in the early morning and late afternoon hours. We'll be staying here again. We camped at Haggard's RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of things to see and do within a relatively short drive half-day to full day trips. Colorado Springs to the North, Pueblo to the East, Canon City and the Arkansas Headwaters to the West and Great Sand Dunes to the South, etc.. Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs; fishing at the Pueblo Reservoir; kayaking and tubing on the Arkansas River, Royal Gorge and beautiful scenic byways.

We camped at Quiet Texas from November 2009-March 2010. We loved it. One of the best-kept secrets for camping in the area. The park has a mix of campers from retired full-timers to those who are full time workers-teachers, nurse, construction, and agriculture pilots. The laundry has two washers and one dryer and is clean. The park is kept mowed and maintained. It is a quiet park. If you are looking for a club house and activities, this is not the park for you. You also need a self-contained rig as there are no restrooms or showers. But that's okay as the cost is just right and a real value! People within the park are friendly. The owner can be found on park grounds on most days. We camped at Quiet Texas RV Park - Hondo in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed this park. They asked us about the weight of our rig as some of the sites with concrete can not handle heavy rigs. If you want lots of activities-this is the park for you. There is always something happening at the clubhouse. People are friendly. We made many wonderful friends in a short time period. There is a new dog park. We camped at Lone Star Corral - Escapee Park in a Fifth Wheel.
