We stayed one night while traveling through the area. The office staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would have appreciated a physical guide to our site as the map was a bit confusing. The park was nicely laid out. Our site was next to a camping cabin and parking was tight, making it a bit difficult to access our site. The park is shady and contained many trees. Many of the sites are on a hill but are relatively level. We did not participate in any of the activities other than walking around on the park roads and trails. It is a park that mainly caters to families with children but is also appropriate for senior adults. We would probably not return only because we do not travel in that direction often.

Our first stay. It's rustic with a western flair. Close to the Interstate but not a lot of highway noise. As it was just an overnight stay, I can't comment on area recreation, restaurants or campground amenities. Would return.

Date of Stay:

Our second visit. It was previously a Passport America park but they have dropped their P/A membership which, in my estimation, creates an over-priced park. There is a nice pool, a playground, and one can get meals, but that is available in many other parks for less money. The only thing going for it is its proximity to many of the tourist attractions. On our last visit, we didn't notice much highway noise but many of the trees that created a noise buffer zone between the park and the highway have been removed and it is really noisy with the truck traffic. Once some of the trees in the park have grown up it may be better but we are looking for another park as a stopping off point on our way north. We might stop again but that is not a certainty. Our site was level and offered full hookup and cable.

We had stayed here several years ago and were not impressed but decided to stay while we were in the area this year. What a difference. Nearly a 180 degree turn-around. The campground was well-tended, the office staff very helpful, the restrooms had been cleaned up and painted and we really enjoyed our stay. The entire area has changed with its proximity to Pigeon Forge and The Great Smokies National Park. Exercise patience - the highway is under construction so you may be in traffic for some time, both getting to and leaving the RV park. We would return.

We arrived after many days of rain had saturated the Southeast. When we got to our assigned space, the power pedestal was standing in water. A call to the office and we were advised to by the staff to find a nearby site that was not in use, call for verification that it was not reserved and move to that site. We found that the campground staff was most responsive to campers' needs and was very helpful. It is an older campground and needs some work but the staff is working on it and there were obvious signs of that. The campground is well-maintained. There are several long term campers. We would return.

This is a new park and fully handicapped accessible. Even the showers are designed to allow a wheelchair-bound individual to roll right in. That said, there is no soap or towels in the restroom/shower rooms. Also, they are removing all grass and putting gravel in its place. For these reasons I didn't rate the park a 10. Sites are spacious and there are some sites dedicated to long-term campers. All staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful little duck pond and a gazebo where you can sit with your morning coffee and watch the ducks. There is a fair amount of highway and train noise. We would definitely return.

Our second stay. Campground and restrooms clean and well-cared for. Staff friendly and informative re: area attractions. Hookups are well-placed. Some highway noise but not over-whelming. Area of park reserved for long term residents but plenty of open sites for overnighters. Would return.

We stay at this park whenever we're crossing Texas on the Panhandle. The GPS takes you to the correct area but tells you it is on the right side of the road when it is actually on the left. Signage is not the best. It has become rather isolated by construction in the area and isn't as inviting as it once was due to the removal of trees in the surrounding area. Note: there is an Air Force base nearby and you will hear air traffic at all hours as well as trains. We would stay again if we return to the area.

We stay at this campground whenever we are in the area. Most sites are pull through and most are full hookups. Also, most sites are level. I do not believe they have any 50 amp sites but, with a "dogbone" and caution with your electrical needs, you can manage nicely with the 30 amp hookups. The office staff is very helpful and, if the owner is at the desk (as she often is), very knowledgeable about the area and local history. There is a Camping World nearby for all your camping needs. We would definitely return.

We reserved a site for 6 days and ended up staying 7. The park is very nice despite the lack of shade trees (it is high desert so that's not unexpected). It is a retirement community and has camping for short or long term. The staff is very helpful and an escort is provided to your site. The office does close early. Pull through and back in sites are available. There's plenty of room for walking without getting outside the park. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

We've stayed at Sunny Acres several times. There are many long term residents but several sites are reserved for overnighters. Most of the sites are shady and the park is well-tended. The staff is very helpful and will guide you to your site if you ask. The restrooms and showers are fully self-contained with shower, sink and commode in an individual room. Be sure to look at the site map as it's easy to get turned around as you walk to the showers. We would definitely return.

This is a great park. It is clean and meticulously cared for. Plenty of shade trees and they are trimmed of low hanging branches. Regular watering of those trees adds to their attractiveness. The sites are mostly pull-through and are matched to the camper that will be occupying that site. It seems to be the nicest campground in the area. I would have rated it higher except for one thing that has been noted before. Due to a high nitrate level, the State has said that the water is not to be used for cooking or drinking. Each camper is given a case of bottled water when they check in and is instructed to use it for those purposes. If they need more, they just have to go to the office and ask. The water is furnished by the State so campers don't find it as a hidden cost in their fees. A permanent solution is being investigated. That said, we enjoyed our overnight stay and, had we not had reservations at another campground the next night, would have stayed an extra day. We will definitely return if we are in the area again.

Park easily accessible from interstate. Country setting. Long, straight, level sites, easy to get into. Few trees scattered around the park. Very windy during our stay and quite dusty as a result. Restrooms, showers and laundry all together in a little building: the only permanent structure in the park other than a tiny building for check-in (not manned on a routine basis). We had made a reservation and found the number for our assigned site on a list on the door. Several long term residents scattered throughout the park. Advertised as having the longest pull-through sites in Abilene! Would return.

Nice little park. Sites well-cared for and easy to access. Some long-term residents but many sites for short term use. Very open with little shade although trees are growing. Quite a bit of highway noise as it is on a road that parallels the interstate. We actually had a killdeer nesting on our site near the sewer connection. The gentleman (?owner) who checked us in took us to our site and made sure we were in a location that would not threaten her. Only stayed one night but, if we are ever in the area again, would stay longer. Would definitely return.

There is very little choice of campgrounds in the area. We were traveling through the area and needed a place for the night. Getting into the campground was somewhat difficult due to the access road. The park was behind a truck stop and it was noisy all night from the diesel engines. We later learned that access could be made through the truck stop and that is how we left the park. The park itself was filled with mostly long term residents. The restrooms were clean and accessible with a pass code. (That we obtained by returning to the office, only to learn that it was posted on a white board outside the office door.) Not much security. It was easy to navigate around the park but the sites were not well-marked. The power pedestal was questionable as the door was not well-secured. Water pressure changed as more campers arrived and hooked up. Would not return.
