Sites are close together but trees provide some privacy. This is a lovely place situated alongside an airport that caters to gliders. If you are lucky you can watch the glider activity or even take a ride.

     

Walnut RV Park

Vega, Texas

Date of Stay:

Basic overnight park. Easy access but away from the highway a bit. Still quite a bit of road noise but there was a strong wind from that direction. Electrics have been redone. A few long term units but lots of space for transients. Store seems to be closed so the office is the owner's kitchen. Nice folks.

Date of Stay:

Good stop to get the laundry done. There are several nice trails beginning at the back of the campground. Could use a bit of maintenance but lots of shade and pleasant folks. I do wish they would upgrade the dump station. It is right in the middle of the exit and the flush water was locked up.

Date of Stay:

Facilities worked fine. Not much shade and close spacing but nothing unusual. Friendly, helpful folks.

Date of Stay:

This is a great campground at the right time of year if your rig is small. Many sites along the Stanislaus River in riparian forest. Trailer size limit is 21 ft. and motorhome limit is 24 ft. Lots of mature trees to provide shade but the area gets very hot in the summer. Pads are asphalt.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice park and a well laid out campground with some very large, level sites, and others nestled into the rock formations. We arrived about noon and our pick of the available spots. Lots of rocks to climb and a petroglyph on Atlatl Rock. It deserved a longer stay so we will be back.

Date of Stay:

Clean restrooms and showers, a laundromat and full hookup for $22. Very close quarters. Our neighbor was a large fifth wheel and he had to park his truck within a foot of us. The obvious expectation is that you will spend your time in the casino not in the RV park. Check in is at the casino hotel front desk where you may get a choice between the CasaBlanca or the Oasis. Oasis looked pretty bleak so we opted for the CasaBlanca.

Date of Stay:

Small park and not many sites have electricity. Not really suitable for big rigs but one somehow got into site #1 next to us. No sites right on the lake but all are just as short. The petrified tree trail is an interesting hike but not much else to do if you are not fishing.

Date of Stay:

Best location within the park. Moderate walk to the visitor center, store, lodge and overlooks. Loops for RVs (>20ft) are paved but many sites are far from level. We're only 22ft and had one front wheel off the ground to get anywhere near level. Showers are in the store building and cost $2. US $1 coins only but they are available at the store. It is a popular place so it's a good idea to arrive early. Rate shown does not reflect Senior Pass.

Nothing bad to say about this campground except that everyone else seems to love it as well. It is first come first serve and folks start cruising for open sites by 8:00am! We arrived just before noon and got one of the last sites available. Only $5/night with a Senior Pass. All sites are paved and pretty level. Hiking nearby and apples, pears and apricots to pick in season. Eat all you can under the trees or take a bag home for a small fee. Historic farmhouse adjoining the campground sells pies (I couldn't resist the strawberry rhubarb and it was very good), jams and such. Beautiful area, should have planned for a longer stay.

Date of Stay:

Well maintained campground in a beautiful setting. Only one bathroom-shower building for both individual and group sites. Large group came in the afternoon we were there. Glad to have gotten my shower early and have my own facilities in the morning. Goblins are interesting as are the cliffs and other formations in the surrounding area. Reservations are definitively a good idea.

Lovely park shaded by big cottonwoods in the middle of town. Paved roads and sites with lots of grassy space in between. Boat ramp nearby but separated from the campground. Dump station conveniently located for use by outsiders as well as campground guests. Good to know as many of the BLM campgrounds in the area have no dump. ACE hardware near the entrance sells propane and has plenty of space for large rigs.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground with a boat ramp along the Colorado River on Hwy 128 about 15 miles north of Moab. Popular place so it pays to arrive early. Some sites large enough for big rigs and all sites have plenty of room. Not fancy but a great location.

Date of Stay:

South of town and away from the crowds. Nothing fancy but facilities all work. Restrooms and showers were clean and a bit of shade on the back sites. We stayed a couple of days while visiting Arches NP. The drive into town is very short but definitely not a walk.

Date of Stay:

Nice alternative to the state or national park campgrounds. Sites are well spaced and the pine and juniper provide privacy and a bit of shade. Rate reflects senior pass. No dump station.
