We stayed here for a couple of nights. We got a large pull-through that was long but not really wide. Paired power outlets with the next site, which wasn't occupied while we were there. Sites and roads were wet and sloppy but to be fair the area has had a huge amount of rain. Excellent wi-fi which was nice for a change. Easy access just off of I-5. Plenty of nearby gas stations and restaurants.

This is a very interesting RV park built within an old orange grove. Sites are separated by orange trees which grow the best oranges we have ever tasted. Guests are encouraged to pick the oranges, and there are more than enough for everyone. Check in staff was the most efficient that we've dealt with in many years. How refreshing to get in and out in just a matter of a minute or so. Store carries ice, snacks, and a few other items. Decent little workout room was welcome as it rained quite a bit while we were there and couldn't get out much.

We spent two nights here on our way from Texas up the west coast. This is a desert type campground, so not a lot of trees or shade. The sites were large and simple to get into. Very few 50 amp sites so we got a 30. The socket was loose and my 50-to-30 amp adapter showed signs of overheating due to a poor connection. The first section of road off of IH-40 from the east was very rough. I noticed that taking the exist to the west and driving back to the park was about the same distance with much better road.

We stayed here for three nights and would certainly return. The park was very clean and well landscaped. Our site was just wide enough for our trailer with three slides, but the length was fine, and we didn't have any issues getting the utilities connected. No wifi except in the library, which is fine with us. Cell coverage was strong. Noise from IH-10 and the railroad track beyond was always present. We slept with the AC blower going and the white noise was sufficient. Office hours are 9:00 am till 3:00 pm, and since we were leaving the park early and returning later we had an issue with getting in to pay for an extra night.

After reading the previous reviews I almost passed this one by. I'm glad that I didn't because it was just fine and MUCH nicer than the only other choice in town. We got a 50 amp pull-through at the back of the park with a great view of the surrounding snow-covered peaks out our back window. These pull-through sites are huge, easily 100' long. You can position a large trailer in the middle and then park either in front or behind. Park store is clean and well stocked. Staff was friendly.

Hilltop RV Park

Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.
