Abilene KOA

Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay:

Check in was fast and we were led to our site. It was long but a little narrow. It was graveled and shady. We could hear the freeway traffic, but it was not loud enough to be a bother. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed our stay at this park. There weren't many other campers there so it was very quiet. The site we were on was grass and quite large. Many sites were shaded but ours was open. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We had a great time at this park. The sites were level and gravel. The staff was very nice and helped us when we had a mechanical problem with our motorhome. The atmosphere was quiet and the view was beautiful.

This park is located right beside the river. The sites were large, but the parking pads were a little narrow. There is a table and grill at each site.

This park has reported that they are temporarily closed. Please check with the them for further information.

This is a beautiful campground. Both the reservation and registration process were easy. We were led to our site. The roads and sites are hard packed gravel. There were lots of trees, but there was still plenty of room to maneuver. It is nicely landscaped, with lots of grass, and it is well maintained. WiFi worked fine. A previous reviewer said it was easy to reach from I-70, but I think they meant either I-64 which is 15 mi away or I-57 which is less than a mile away. I-70 is 85 mi away. The place actually sits on Highway 37, but there is no road noise. It is very quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend this park!

We stayed at this park several years ago when it was a KOA, and it is nicer now. The reservation process and check in was easy. Employees were friendly, accommodating, and competent. There was an escort to our site. The interior roads and sites appeared to be crushed granite. Sites were level and roomy, and there was ample space between sites. The sites were delineated well, and the utilities worked fine. The owner has built some nice patios and cabanas for shade although there are quite a few trees for shade also. There had just been a 3/4 in. rain when we arrived, and the sites had drained well. The rate is with a discount coupon. I think the regular rate is around $35. We would definitely stay here again.

This is not a big, nice, destination park, but it served our needs for a short stay. It appeared to be more of a permanent resident park, but there are several pull through sites for short termers. It is located right on Loop 289 so there is some traffic/siren noise, but with the AC going, we did not hear it. The roads are paved, and there is a concrete pad to park on, but ours was beginning to crack and break up. The sites are large, plenty of room for the toad, and there is fairly good space between sites. There is very little shade or grass, but there is plenty of dust which is typical of all of west Texas. The utilities worked well, but were just a bit "ragged" looking. The wifi did not work well at our site. The map labels this park by another name, but the map pin is correct. We would probably stay here again.

We did not stay at this park, but we looked at it as a possibility for the future. It is a very nice park, and apparently it is no longer a Class A only park. The entrance is gated; the landscaping is beautiful; and the streets and pads are paved. There is a clubhouse, nice pool, and other recreational activity areas. We look forward to staying here next time we are in the area.

This is a very unique RV park. First, it is just across the levee from the Mississippi River and is built on the grounds of an old plantation. The house is now a bed and breakfast. Tours are held on the weekends and are free if you are staying at the park. Most roads are gravel and dusty while others have pot holes and mud when it rains. The sites range from very nice paved (pull thoughs and back ins) to gravel, muddy not well kept back ins. Some sites have no shade, while others are very shaded. We were in a not so good area, but the utilities worked well, there were lots of cable TV channels, and the WiFi was quite usable. The bathrooms were individual and nice and clean. The pool looked nice; the spa was not open. I did not see much to entertain kids, but I did see kids staying there. The owner is constantly working on improvements and is planning an on site restaurant. Apparently he can be hard to deal with, but he was quite nice to us. It can also be difficult to find someone in the office, and apparently reservations get mixed up frequently. Our reserved pull through site was changed to a back in, but at least we got one. I don’t think this place would be for everyone, but if you can roll with the owner’s quirky personality and management style and not expect too much in the way of amenities, you will probably have a good time. Finally, with all the diverse areas, it was hard to rate the entire park. It ranges from 9 to 5 depending on where you stay, so I averaged it at a 7. We would stay there again, but only if we could get one of the nicer spots.

I can understand that if you stayed in the back of the park in the gravel section, your opinion and rating of the place could be quite different. But we were in one of the pull though sites near the front of the park, and they were very nice. The sites were long, level, paved, and perhaps a bit narrow, but adequate. There was no table. The utilities were placed well and worked fine. Wi-Fi was good, and we got several over the air TV stations. We did not hear any excessive highway noise. The staff was very friendly and competent. I would say that it is family friendly, but I did not actually see a playground or anything to entertain kids. There was a large grassy area where we saw people walking their dogs. As another reviewer said, this is not really a destination park, but it is great for an overnight stop.

The casino marquee says the RV park is now open, but we did not actually see it, so we have no idea what it is like now.

Date of Stay:

Well kept park. Hard packed gravel sites. Pool and Wi-Fi access are at the motel.

I just can't give this place the same rating as the last few reviewers, although I do agree that it works for an overnight stay. But that's it. The check-in person was pleasant, but offered no information about park unless we asked a specific question. The sites are nothing more than level dust. All the utilities worked well except for the wi-fi which we could not get connected to. There appears to be quite a few long term residents, but their sites were not trashy. I am not sure if there were any bathrooms or showers. We didn't see any and the check-in person did not mention any. We realize this is a very dry area of Texas, but even so there was no attempt at even minimal desert landscaping. There is highway noise. If you don't mind a very plain, rather unattractive park that is only $18, then stop here.

We stayed here for 5 days and do not understand the recent complaints and lower ratings. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and the park was beautiful, well kept, and clean. The roads and sites were gravel and well maintained. The sites were level, a picnic table was provided, and there was grass between sites. Utilities were well placed and worked fine. The cable TV and Wi-Fi were good. The sites were very long and wide enough, but the distance between sites was a little narrower than we prefer; however, we had no trouble extending our slides or awning. While we were there, there was an incident that occurred. A younger couple was letting their very large dog defecate anywhere it wanted to, usually on another site. They continued to do this even after they were warned not to, so the owners asked them to leave. They refused, and the police had to be called. Some may see this as the park owners being unfriendly and too strict. To us this showed that they enforce their rules for the benefit of all guests, and we feel this is what keeps the place nice. We highly recommend this park, and hope we get to stay here again.
