This is a perfectly fine RV park, and certainly the nicest in Fort Stockton. We got a pull though site at the back of the park. Easy access, level and back from the highway. The front sites seem to be for longer term residents, and while there were plenty the park didn't have the "run down" look that often goes along with them. The owners live on site and are very friendly. We had good Wi-Fi while we were there, and our AT&T and Verizon worked well also. This is West Texas, so don't expect green grass and tall trees.

This is a pretty basic park with widely spaced pads spread across a meadow. All of the basics are here with good 50 amp power, good water pressure, and working sewer. WiFi is surprisingly good for such a small park. The owners live on site and are very friendly and relaxed. They told me to choose a spot and they'd come and see me later. When I spoke with the lady who runs the place she suggested that I stay however long I wanted and then settle up when I was ready to leave. We arrived planning on a three nights and stayed a week. She charged me the lower weekly rate without question. There are free-range chickens roaming the park, and the park owner gave us a dozen free eggs!

Very nice park with mature trees and some nice grass between sites. Good gravel pads, with 50 amp, water, sewer and cable. You can see that the pull-through sites were originally designed for two RV's side-by-side, but with modern trailers and slides they were using them as single sites while we were there. There is a large nature park with a trail back to the Yellowstone River at the back of the park. We walked back there several times and enjoyed the birds and the view. The Office/Store had a nice variety of trinkets and other things to buy. The park is very convenient to the highway and city, but it is quiet and feels secluded.

While not a destination campground, a perfectly fine place to spend a couple of nights. Lots of long-term campers but they are mostly around the perimeter of the campground and were very quiet. They put us in a roomy pull-through in the center of the campground. Good level site with 50 amp power, water, sewer and cable. They have a small "nature park" that takes you back to the river and was good for stretching your legs. Office/store had a few snacks and ice cream bars available.

Not a destination campground, but perfectly serviceable for a couple of nights in the area. For the most part the sites are gravel pads with a few trees here and there. I thought that the $40 rate (with Good Sam) was high but there aren't many options in town. We were given a pull-through site in the center. These sites were originally set up as narrow back-to-back sites, but they are using them as singles for rigs with slide-outs and there was plenty of room for the trailer with the truck. Our site had 50 amp power, water, sewer, and cable. Nice laundry room with 6 washers and 6 dryers, and reasonable rates. Office had a few items for sale, including ice. There is a BBQ restaurant on the property but it wasn't open while we were there.

Very nice state park. All RV sites have 50 amp power, water and sewer which is great. Camper Services building does not open until April 15th, so the laundry, store, etc. were not open during our stay. Good hiking trails and a nice visitor center. Our only complaint is that the pull-throughs (at least in Swift Puma Loop) are not usable for many rigs, including our 33' fifth wheel. We tried to use one, but they are too narrow, and the curve too tight to be able to get our rig in. I was as far over as I could be (tow vehicle tires against the tire stops)but the trailer tires would have dropped into the deep sewer pit that each site has. This would have damaged our trailer and we had to back out of the site. We noted that all other fifth wheel trailers were using back-in sites.

This is a very tidy, well designed park. The office folks were very friendly, even though we arrived exactly at closing and they had to reopen the office. Good level pullthroughs, good cable, usable Wi-Fi. We were here for a single night, and the $35 fee seemed a bit high. The irony is that we were given two 20% off coupons for future stays, no expiration. Wouldn't it be nice if they just dropped the price 20%??

This is a basic gravel parking lot. Sites were adequate, with back-to-back shared hookups. My price included a $3 up-charge for 50 amp electric service. The appeal of the park is its very close proximity to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. It is the only park in the area, and so that is where folks stay who want to visit the refuge.

This park has only 4 full hook-up sites. The others are electric only with scattered water spigots. We camped in Site 1, which was full hook-up site near the office. The water pressure was very low, and the site was gravel and not particularly level. On the plus side, there is a very nice nature trail in the campground, and two nearby natural areas that offer good hiking and birdwatching.

We camped in the Mesquite Campground which is at the end of the road down in the canyon. The road down into the canyon is steep, with a 10% grade for about a mile.The sites are large and well-spaced, with wonderful views of the canyon walls. No sewer sites are available, but we had water and 50 amp electric. AT&T cell and broadband worked well. This is a good park for hiking or just relaxing. We visited the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, and it was great.

We were surprised at how nicely wooded the campground was. Sites are well separated and level. Nice nature trail and some wonderful historic CCC buildings. AT&T cell phone and wireless broadband worked well.

We stopped here for a single night on our way home. Sites were narrow and muddy. No sewer or cable TV. Wi-Fi was fine. All of the park attractions were closed, and they may make this a good destination campground for families with children, but for us it was only so-so.

We stopped here for an overnight on our way home. We phoned ahead for information and the gentlemen who we spoke with was very helpful. Same at check-in. The park is nicely landscaped and has a lake, lots of trees, and some nice natural areas. The downside for us was that the roads are narrow and rough, and the sites are quite close together in some areas. It wasn't busy when we were there, but I imagine that during the summer things could get a little cramped.

This is a small state park campground that caters more to tents and pop-ups than to RV's and motorhomes. That being said, there are several sites large enough to accommodate larger fifth wheels and MH's. No hook-ups of any kind. The campground entry road (1/2 mile) is steep and a bit rough, but the distance to the campground is short. The campground is heavily wooded and shady. In addition to outhouses in the campground, they have a very nice showerhouse with five rooms. Three of the rooms contain showers, sinks and toilets, and are large enough for a parent to use with children. The other two rooms (also quite large) have sinks and toilets only. The showerhouse was spotlessly clean. The park is on a beautiful lake, and rents canoes and kayaks very cheaply. There are some good hiking trails, including a climb of Quaggy Jo mountain's South and North Peaks. Maine residents pay $10 plus tax, while out-of-state pays $20 plus tax. The town of Presque Isle is only about 10 minutes away, and offers all services and shopping that one might need.

PA Rate. Very nice, clean park. Well laid out, with a friendly staff at check in. Good laundry facilities. Discount coupon provided for the adjacent restaurant, good food!
