We stayed here for a month. The sites are roomy enough, although they are on a slant so we couldn't use the picnic table. You're not allowed to unhook your tow vehicle in front of the office. They don't tell you that until after you start unhooking. When we checked in, we were told that they would inform us if there was going to be a frost. They didn't. They also didn't inform us when they worked on the water pipes throughout the campground. With no warning at all, they shut off the water. We thought it was just our site until we noticed everyone outside checking their water hoses. Beyond the water issue, you can't drive your car to the laundry. There is a parking area at the bottom of a hill in back of the laundry, but you'd have to haul your clothes up that hill. Fortunately our site was close to the laundry so it wasn't difficult for us, but I'd hate to be farther away and have to carry the laundry basket all the way over there. There are 4 washers ($2) and 4 dryers ($2.50). The bath/shower rooms are in the same building as the laundry. Bath/showers are large and clean. Laundry is clean but not very big.

We stayed here for four months. The sites are large (40x50), gravel and dirt. There's no table or fire ring, and no shade. You can have a barbecue grill, both gas and charcoal, but there are quite a few days that are so windy, it wouldn't be advisable. There's a strong community feel about this campground, and as newcomers we were made welcome and accepted as part of the community. We felt so "at home" that we made reservations to return next year, which is a rarity for us.

The turn into the resort and the turns throughout the resort are tight. It doesn't help that they have parking on one side of the road. When we checked in, we were given a 24-page rule/regulation book. We were also given a nametag that we had to keep pinned to our shirt whenever we were in the park. I wasn't too happy about that. I don't like putting holes in my clothes. The site tilts towards the street, so we had to use leveling blocks under our front wheels. We had problems with our water and electric, and found out later that several people have the same problems. When we tried to hook up the utilities, the electric didn't work. We called the office. By the time someone came to help, my husband had played around with it and had gotten it working. Two days later, the electricity went out again. This time my husband couldn't get it working. We had someone from maintenance come out, and he managed to get it on. A couple of days later, we had no water. Three phone calls and almost an hour and a half later, the manager came to look at it. He had no tools. We had to hook up our water hose to the neighbor's pedestal. The next day they got our water going. During the two months we were there, we had a few more power outages and more problems with the water. The office closes at 4 pm. If you have a problem after that, you have to call the guardshack. There's not much they can do since the maintenance men are not on duty, and the manager doesn't have any tools. Needless to say, we will not return to this park.

We are wanderers. Since we hit the open road four years ago, we haven't stayed in one place for more than two months. We only spent one week here, but we felt like part of the community. If we ever decide to stop traveling, I think this will be where we settle. Now for the basics: There's a short paved road in the campground which has some potholes. Most of the roads are well-maintained gravel and dirt. The sites are roomy, level, and gravel & dirt. There's a picnic table but no fire ring. Some of the sites have trees. All of the buildings are clean. The laundry has four washers ($1.25) and four dryers ($1.00 for 60 minutes). The campground has lots of activities, including water aerobics. The clubhouse is nice and has an area that has a computer which is available for your use, a book exchange, and a comfortable sofa to sit and read or converse with another guest. We were there on Halloween and attended the party. We had a wonderful time. There was a band and dancing and everyone brought snacks to share. The best part though is that everyone treats you like you've been friends for years.

From the moment we walked into the office, we knew we'd like this campground. It just had a very good feel about it. The woman at the desk was pleasant and treated us like longtime friends. Some sites are very close, but ours was nice and roomy. It was also very level. There's a nice clubhouse with a pool table, sitting area and book exchange.

The owner lives in the mobile home park. Our GPS said to take Exit 6 off of I-10, but coming west on I-10 there is no Exit 6. There's Exit 6A and 6B. Take Exit 6A. This is a small campground tucked into a corner of a mobile home park. You're right next to the road, so there's quite a bit of traffic noise. The advantage to that though is that you have easy access to the city (El Paso) and to stores. There is also a train nearby. The sites are on level concrete pads with a gravel area for your car and a concrete patio. The bathroom/showers are large and clean. The laundry is also clean and has three washers ($1) and three dryers ($1).

This is the second time we've stayed here. We tried another campground down the road once. Never again. Fort Stockton RV Park is great. Friendly people, nice little cafe, nice dog park, level sites, and all utilities work fine.

This is a funky little campground. Our first impression was "What have we gotten ourselves into?" But we ended up loving this place. The owner is great. We had a long, level pull-through site. They were having problems with the electric hookups to our site, so he ran a 50-amp extension cord to it, and we had no problems. There's a train nearby, but it didn't bother us. The owner told us about a fair and rodeo that was being held that weekend, so we went and had a wonderful time. So glad we stopped here. We would definitely come here again if in the area.

I made our reservations two weeks before our arrival date. I told them we have a 36' Class C and are towing a car. We wanted a pull-through because we were only staying one night and did not want to unhook the car. When we got there, we were told we had been assigned site 136. When the ranger came to guide us to our site, he said the site wasn't long enough. So they put us in an overflow site. We could put out our slideouts and had full hookups, but it wasn't really a site. It was on a narrow cross street. We were very disappointed. We have never stayed in a Carefree resort, and maybe we expected too much, but it seems to me that it was more "careless" than "carefree". I'd be very hesitant to stay in another one.

Very nice little campground easily accessed from I-49. The sites are level. Interior roads are narrow, gravel and dirt. Sites are gravel and grass. There's a pretty catch-and-release lake on the grounds. Great place to just kick back and relax. The laundry has 2 washers ($1.25) and 2 dryers ($1.25). There are very friendly dogs that roam freely through the campground. The dogs aren't a problem, but no one picks up after they poop.

This is a very nice RV park. The sites are long and level and on cement pads. There's a nice picnic table at each site, and the grounds are well-kept. The building in which the office is located also has a lounge area with a tv and a book/video exchange, a gift shop, the laundry, and the restrooms/showers. That's also where the pool and hot tub are located. Everything is clean and the people are very nice. The laundry has two double-size washers and a triple-size washer and four large dryers. The double-size washers are $2.50 and the dryers are $0.25 for 10 minutes. I did what normally would have been 2 wash loads for $3.75. We walked along the riverwalk and watched the boats going up and down the Mississippi River. We really enjoyed our stay here.

If you need tv (unless you have satellite), wifi (unless you have a personal hotspot), and phone service (unless you're willing to travel 5 miles into town), this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, you'll like this campground. There's an upper and a lower campground. You have to go up a steep hill to get to the upper campground so we stayed in the lower one, and we're glad we did. The upper campground is where the tent sites are located, and they're put to good use by scout troops and school groups on the weekend. The road into the campground is narrow, but the campground was practically empty while we were there so it wasn't an issue. The campground is a perfect place to relax, the people are nice, and the museum and battlefield are free for campers. You can wash your RV for $5 and your car for $2. The laundry has two washers ($1) and two dryers ($0.75). There's a shower/restroom at the upper campground. The shower/restroom/laundry for the lower campground is at the top of a hill, but there are stairs to get to it or you can drive up to it. Since we would rather use the shower and bathroom in our RV anyway, this wasn't a concern for us.

Do not pull into the parking lot at the office/restaurant. Because of restaurant patrons, you may not be able to get out again. Instead, go to the campground and pick out a site. Then call the office and tell them which site you are in. The roads in the campground are narrow, gravel, and not well-maintained. Once set up, sprinkle ant powder all around the outside of your RV. Whenever you go outside your RV, I suggest you use Off. The no-see-ums bite. The sites are on level cement pads. There's a picnic table and a grill. There's also a fire pit, but ours had a half-burned fence post and trash in it, so we didn't use it. The sites are shady, which we liked, and we had a view of the lake, which is beautiful. This is a beautiful, quiet campground, but the management doesn't seem to care about it. They're more interested in the hotel and the restaurant.

This is a beautiful campground with large shady sites. I would not suggest it for an overnighter, but if you're planning on staying a few days, it's very nice. The sites are unlevel, but once we got our coach leveled, we enjoyed our entire stay. The roads are paved; the sites are gravel. Each site has a picnic table. There are birdfeeders all around the campground. The people here are very friendly. The laundry room has only two washers ($1.50) and two dryers ($2). The entrance to the Natchez Trace is close. Walmart, a mall and grocery stores are just a few blocks away.

Date of Stay:

We chose this campground because it is right across the street from the entrance to the Natchez Trace Parkway. When we pulled in, the only building we saw was a restaurant. It was closed. I called the campground's phone number and was told "I see you. I'm coming." Staff showed up in a golf cart and led us on a narrow gravel road to our site. They don't take credit cards, just cash or check. We had a long, level 50-amp site. The hookups are very far apart. There is no laundry, no over-the-air TV reception and no cable. I found that to be a good thing. We relaxed in the evening. Read books, took walks. Turns out the restaurant is open from 4-9 PM Thursday through Saturday and from 11 AM-3 PM on Sunday. The food is very good. The people here are nice. They treat you as if you've been neighbors for years. We'll stay here again if we return to this area.
