We recently spent three days at this RV Campground. It is a very packed RV park, catering to full-timers and the overnight crowd. Our space was very near others and the Motel 6 bordering the RV park contributed to noise. This RV park had water, sewer, and electric hookups. There was a small laundry room and the bathrooms were a bit dated, but cleaned. All-in-all the RV campground was pretty standard, it bordered a large highway, the spaces were narrow and gravel. Would I recommend this park? If we were visiting Abilene or passing through. Would we come back? Sure. Informational: We travel in a 36' Class A RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for one night when passing through the area. We loved this park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a large, level spot and the area of the park we stayed in was very clean and well maintained. The cable television and Wi-Fi worked very well. We paid for a premium space as we didn't want to disconnect. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My husband and I stayed one night. We received a military discount. The staff greeted us and were friendly. The site was shaded and our pull-through was large enough that we did not have to disconnect since we're were only staying one night. We were disappointed that management did not inform us that the swimming pool was not usable. The pool was the reason we chose this RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Interesting...pool was closed for us also as a pump was out. No one was at the registration desk, and I had to wait. Literally the place reminded me of a trashy trailer park...not kidding! There was standing water that had obviously been there for some time. Weeds, junk, muddy K9 park (come on...pea gravel or grass!!). I left in the morning quickly! Not up to KOA standards, and I would not recommend it! Disappointing! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The reviews that I had read on this park weren't that great and therefore my expectations were low. I was pleasantly surprised. Everything went very well and it far exceeded expectations. We had shade, the people running the place were very nice, the bathrooms/showers were clean and looked new, and everything worked well. It is an older park, but I can't think of anything that was below expectations. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here several times. The park is older and the sites are close. Unfortunately our site was littered with cigarette butts and other left over trash. The lady in the office was very friendly and courteous. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was not what we expected any KOA to be. When we made our reservations we were told there would be a pull through big enough to accommodate our rig and tow vehicle, as we were not wanting to unhook. That did not happen. The site we were given was small and very close to our neighbors. So close we could not even open our awning. The pool was closed, due to a maintenance issue. We went up to the office and spoke to the manager about the reservation we made and that we were not happy with the site we were given. They refunded our money which we were happy about, no problems. That night, there was a live band in the park playing very loudly until 10 o'clock. Not the best nights sleep we ever had. Needless to say, we were glad to pull out in the early morning. We would not stay here again nor do we recommend it to anyone else. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean, simple park, nothing fancy, but up to the KOA standards. Gravel roads and sites with grass & trees in-between. Office has a small store for basics, which is always nice. Staff is always friendly and escorts you to your site (pull-thru). An odd loop around the I-20, but no big deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many improvements need to be made. Wi-Fi was terrible; we were given a sheet with nearly 200 cable stations; we only could get 20, which were almost all local, except we got San Antonio! A lot more gravel needs to be spread around on roads and around hook ups. It rained during the night, and it was necessary to stand in water to disconnect from utilities. Sewer overflowed when we tried to dump, and as we left, we saw many puddles with soapy water on the road; made us wonder if other sewers were also overflowing. Lots of noise from interstate unless you were running air conditioning. Staff was friendly and helpful. We pulled in here because the wind was so bad. It was an OK place to overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The front desk worked very hard to find us a site (they were almost full). We ended up with a very large, long back-in site. The hookups were at the back, which would have been a problem for the sewer, but we didn't hook up (just there for one night). The cable was very good, internet was fair. Interior roads still need some work, but didn't cause any problems. Noise was minimal. Looked like a great dog park and play area. Very pretty park with all the trees. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As we got close to this park saw a sign that their were new managers. What a difference. We stayed here last fall while visiting family. As you will read on posts from that time, the people running the place were not friendly and the park was very run down. The new people are very friendly and within the two months they have been there you can see improvement. There is new blacktop at the entrance which formerly was really bad. Major holes in the roads have been filled. The restrooms have been redone and are operating. They still have work to do but you can see things are better. It is not a resort, but good for an overnight or a few days visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Positives include friendly hosts, level sites and speedy Wi-Fi. Negatives include repair needed on internal streets and, above all, bathroom accommodations. The women's restroom was closed with a commode outside the door. The "men's" side had a temporary sign stating it was a "family restroom". Really! Peeking in and it was a typical KOA set of stalls. I couldn't bring myself to use the family side! Perhaps this was very temporary but if they wish to remain competitive, they need to upgrade their facilities. As with many southern campgrounds, the majority of spaces are filled with long-term area workers. Oh, and the pool was drained (and nasty looking) too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here as a one nighter. Staff was very friendly. Had big pull throughs, level. No cable. Easy to get to. Would stop again as a one night stop. Rate reflects KOA member. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on a Thursday night in late October and had a FHU pull-through site. Most sites are FHU with about 30 pull-throughs and 60 back-ins. The roads and sites are gravel. The sites vary in size. Our site, as I believe most do, had cable TV with (according to the handout) about 70+ analog channels and 50+ digital channels. I settled for figuring out what channels were the network stations on cable and using my satellite for the rest. As I have learned in the past year, I cannot enter numbers like 56-1 on my remote to bring up digital channel 56-1. If you want satellite reception be sure to request a satellite friendly site because many sites have trees tall enough to block the satellite. At what was possibly the farthest site from the office, we were unable to connect to the WI-FI. I don't think it was a "too many people on" as a distance/sightline from/to the antenna/router issue. Staff thought is might be the wind. Nice looking pool was closed for the season. The park looks like it would nice for a family weekend. I'd stay again as long as I could get an "open" site closer to the office for better WI-FI. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owner of this park is working to improve it, he says. It could be really pretty. There is excellent cable and Wi-Fi. There are lots of pretty trees. The bathrooms are clean but dated. The roads and sites are in need of repair. It was good for an overnight stay. Not a destination park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cant rate higher. Didn't use all facilities. Clean park. Got in late, had to find own spot. I find KOA's expensive for overnights. But, its a business now! Office friendly. Not the easiest to get to coming from the south. Spot was a pull through with a toad. No problems. Wi-fi a little slower than norm. Probably would not stay here again due to price/value We camped here in a Motorhome.
A perfect park for us. Although just off interstate there was no road noise (site#10-shady) . Pool is located on frontage road. Showers were perfect! No security code but not needed. Eliminate the speed bump and this park would be a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not fond of this park. It was crowded, dusty, and our site was not level. Lots of trees, so watch where they put you. Road noise was bearable, but noticeable. We had a family with small children and a large fifth wheel right next to our slide out. They were running back and forth until late. Drove our dog nuts. Just saying that the sites are VERY close to each other! Won't be staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the only decent campground in the Abilene area so we stay here by default. Some of the managers are in dire need of people skills. The park is dusty and sets on the access road to I-20 so you will have road noise. We may try alternate routing in future trips to avoid this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a good campground. We arrived late and there were some camp workers in a golf cart to help us find a spot; they led us right to a level, pull-through site. I have a 23' motorhome with one slide-out and had plenty of room. When I was disconnecting my hook-ups the next morning one of them came by and asked if I needed any help. There are lots of trees and a nice path to walk your dog. Wi-Fi worked great and I was able to get connected without a password which I really appreciate when I get in after hours. It's about 5 miles from a museum called "Frontier Texas!" that I can't recommend enough. It's a fantastic museum that covers frontier history from 1780-1880 using state of the art life-sized holograms of real people from that time to show you what it was like from different perspectives. The acting is fantastic, not cheesy like some educational program acting can be. The Abilene KOA is right off the freeway and a good stop-over spot to see the museum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad stop over park. Our site was pretty narrow for a 34' motorhome with slides. We had to jockey the rig back and forth in order to best align it to allow the slides out and awning. The awning could only be deployed about half way out because of trees. The shade was welcome however. Friendly staff. I was surprised to see the staff cleaning the playground equipment which is painted KOA bright yellow. A nice plus for families. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was great! They just had new Wi-Fi equipment put in and it was working amazingly well. The pool was sparkling & the kids loved it. They installed A/C's in their restrooms while we were there as well and it made a drastic difference. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This KOA was a disgrace to the campground chain. We called ahead to ensure availability after reading an impeccable write-up in a brochure. After setting up, we were told that the pool was out of order, the Wi-Fi was out, and cable TV wasn't working very well. Propane refill was out of the question as the only qualified person was the owner who was away at some personal function. The money hungry management did not hint over the phone that the full advertised amenities were not available, nor did they even fathom the idea of a reduced rate or partial refund for the inconvenience. We would never stay here again, nor would we ever recommend this trap to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived we were informed that their water heater was out so there was no hot water. There was no offer of a reduced rate for this inconvenience. The sites are narrow, short and very dusty. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not too much good to say about this RV park. Roads narrow with lots of potholes. We maneuvered our 40 foot motor home between a 5th wheel partly parked in the road, a truck, and trees. The "guide" was on break. Thank goodness for walkie-talkies! Many extended stay (although to be fair, they seemed to be neat). Constant freeway noise and as a bonus barking dogs. The Wi-Fi was literally useless. We never were able to connect. The site, although narrow, was gravel and fairly level. We would not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is definitely not up to KOA standards. There was no hot water during our stay. Landscaping at the park was not maintained, grass cuttings everywhere. Trailer life gave the park overall 8, restrooms an 8, visual a 7. It was anything but close to that rating. On the plus side, the staff is young and friendly but appear to be inexperienced. The park is close to sight seeing and shopping. If you are passing though, the park is okay for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had some trouble getting to this campground because there was a fire along the exit ramp and fire trucks had the frontage roads blocked. We could only wait patiently. This camp lies down in a wooded hollow south of the Interstate. I did not notice any adverse road noise, but we were mostly to the back of the property. Since it was winter, the trees didn't have leaves, so we connected with the satellite dish. Our Verizon air card connected to the internet nicely, but wi-fi was also available. This park was kind of tight with the trees, so I had to take it slowly around the roads which were gravel. The sites were also gravel but long enough to park the motorhome and the trailer that we were pulling. There were many long term campers in the main part of the campground, and they had a lot of stuff out in the areas between the rigs. That made it seem a bit junky. The store was clean and nicely stocked, and the people were good to us and courteous. We would more than likely stay again if we traveled along I-20 in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was your standard run of the mill KOA. Plus when we arrived we we found we had to drive around to find a place to eat. There are not any around close by. The major problem here was getting to and leaving the campground. The highway system was very poorly laid out and one had to drive several miles to get on highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We missed the under-freeway access road, the sign was not visible after dark. Made a U-turn at the next exit, no problems. The site was level and quiet. We'll stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was nice overall, but their paved roads are in great need of repair. The playground for the kids was also fairly small. There aren't many options in the area, though, so we were grateful to find a KOA here. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Entered site after hours. Set up trailer then realized there was no power from electric meter. Had to tear down and move to another site and set up again. Mentioned it to office personnel the next morning and their response was "yeah". Didn't say we are sorry, offer a discount or anything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was just fine. People who registered us were happy and joking around and very helpful with answering our questions. Eddie was great at parking us and also very humorous. I gave it an 8 out of 10 because the interior road could use a little work. Really an easy in easy out park. Even though you were right next to 1-20 there is no noise. I would stay here again. I have a 40foot fiver with 3 slides and there was plenty of room for it as well as my dually long bed truck. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an overnight stop for us and we really have no complaints. Office staff were friendly and took us to our site. Site was shady and level. The park was quiet. The reason for the 7 rating is that it is an older park and just not as modernized and updated as it could be. When in the area we will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived, we were given a site that was impossible to get into. I went back to the office and we were moved to a second site, and discovered that the 50 amp service did not work. I went back again and we finally got a site that we could get into, but barely. The trees are extremely close together and I was afraid we might not get our slide outs fully extended. There are a lot of seasonals or workers here. The campground is small, the roads are in dire need of repair with lots of holes and mud. The general appearance is worn and old looking. It's not very clean. Getting in and out is confusing. Although the staff was very helpful and pleasant, this is one place that we not return to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little tricky getting to this park, if you're coming from the south. We had called ahead and had a reservation. Office help seemed a little disorganized, but we were finally shown to our site. It was Labor Day and very crowded. The office store was out of ice. Pool was full of kids, but we were put away from that area and it only became an issue when I walked the dog. The dog park was right by the pool area, and my dog was nervous with all the children noise. Sites are long enough and each have a picnic table and one tree. Cable TV and WiFi worked well. Good for an overnight. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an ok campground if you just need a spot for the night. Unfortunately we stayed here for a week. Instead of doing lawn maintenance during the week when they were practically empty, they did it both weekends we were here. There is NOTHING to do here, even in mid August the pool was toooooo cold to swim in. It has a large playground for kids, but spray the kids down with OFF, mosquito's will carry you away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an overnight stop. We were so disappointed with this KOA we wrote the headquarters. The park is poorly maintained. The pot holes are unacceptable especially since they have a large pile of fill in the corner of the park. The lots are long, level and shaded but very narrow. The check in staff was great as was the escort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff was very friendly when making phone reservations and checking in. The restrooms were clean, but show their age. The sites all have trees for shade. The roads have pot holes that enforce the 5mph speed limit. Sites are level, good Wi-Fi and cable. Average pool. Very nice fenced dog area but it could use more grass. We used it as a convenience overnight stop and it easily met our needs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived after a 8 hour trip, I was in no mood for shenanigans. The lady at the front desk was through with a bit too much sarcasm for me. We settled in and the site seemed to be decent. I used the rest room and I have never encountered such filthy areas in a KOA. Paper towels seemed to be empty and no one to check them. The so called "caretakers" dogs barked constantly in their camper, however other campers were reprimanded about the rules. These people wrote the book on rudeness. Please avoid this campsite if possible. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not Recommended. As previously stated in other reviews, the staff here is not friendly or welcoming in anyway. In fact they are down right rude. Upon our check out, they created extra charges for dumping and told us that we should have paid for full hook ups if we wanted to empty our tanks. Every place we've ever stayed with partial hook ups, we were welcome to dump for free at the community dump station (including other KOA's). The Abilene KOA didn't notify us of the BROKEN dump station nor the charge to dump in their make shift dump station (someone else spot) when we checked in for two nights in a partial hook up space. In addition, this KOA is not near enough to the sights of Abilene for the price. They are very close to the freeway (I-20) and right under the Motel 6. The spaces were level but the bathrooms were iffy, they were very old (broken tiles) and falling apart but cleaned. The Motel 6 next door was the same price as full hook ups ($39)! We will not be staying here again do the poor customer service (staff). Instead, stay at Abilene State Park, TX for only half (only 15/per night). Much prettier location and near historic Buffalo Gap. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For an overnight stay, it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Management was not exceptionally friendly, but might that have been that we arrived at 6:00 PM and that was their office closing time. Seemed that was extremely early for a KOA, just off the interstate. Probably would return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First of all the people here are great! We got stuck in the Christmas Eve snow storm and spent several extra hours plugged in to keep warm and watch the weather reports until the snow stopped and we felt we could safely leave. They loaned us a ladder to shovel snow off of the slide awnings and the man even stayed to stabilize the ladder while I dumped snow on his head. This campground is easy to get to and has a small playground that could use some work, but the sites are long, level and well kept. There was a nearby steakhouse that delivers to your site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Called ahead for reservations as we always do. Took about a minute on the phone. Check in was quick. The people at the desk were efficient, not unfriendly but not chatty either. The park appears to be well maintained. The old swimming pool is an eyesore and should probably be filled in and covered. There is some highway noise. We would stay here again on an over nite basis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As another reviewer stated, the office workers and the escort could be friendlier. All seemed to act put out that they have to wait on you. Snippy answers to your questions. It's like they're doing you a favor to let you stay with them. We are full time RVers and will be passing through this way a lot. We have stayed here twice and both times there's no "hello, may I help you?". The campground is OK. Gravel sites that are pretty level. This may be the last time we stay here. The price is higher than most and I don't feel welcome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is convenient to Interstate but traffic noise was not a problem. It is close to Drag Strip so noise could be a problem during races. Very informative staff. The sites are level. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for the evening after a long drive up from South Texas. We asked if they had a space for us but instead of getting a yes or no answer we got a lecture on why we should have made a reservation.Not only once but three times we were told we should have made a reservation. We have traveled all over the US and stayed at many parks without reservations without a problem much less a lecture. The lady at the desk might have been trying to be cute but to weary travelers this was not cute. We left out through the park and noticed they had several sites vacant... We found another RV park right down Interstate 20 that had no problem taking us in without a reservation or lecture. We will not be back there nor will the 650 members of our RV Club be using this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Another pricey KOA but it is the best stopover in Abilene if you are traveling I-20. No aircraft noise from Dyess and the park has the working CATV and Wi-Fi as well. If you need a windshield ding fixed, Jim's West Texas Windshield Repair will do a great job. His biz card is in the front office! We had a nice pull through site. Dog park was also a very nice perk and the dogs enjoyed it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm not a fan of KOA, but at the end of a 500 mile day, I was ready to stop for the night. To my surprise and amazement, this CG is a jewel. It is just off I-20, yet the road sounds are muffled. There is free Wi-Fi and 65 channels of cable TV if you don't want to use satellite. The pull throughs were plenty long for big rigs and there is comfortable spacing between sites. My only complaint is that on my site, the distance between my sewer hose and the dump was too far for me to reach. However, this is not the case at all the sites. Other than that, the sites were level (gravel) and the staff very friendly and accommodating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Incredibly small, tight, packed park! Roads were set up well for turns. Sites were long enough to squeeze in without unhooking tow vehicle, but everyone in Texas drives 2 or 3 duallys and the feeling of the park was claustrophobic, cramped, packed in. Park is next to Motel 6 - was very noisy the night I stopped. Probably would have been quieter and had more space spending the night at a truck stop. Staff was very nice, helpful and friendly We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for an overnighter while traveling on IH-20. The campground is okay for a one night stop, but it has a few negatives. The campground is located adjacent to a Motel 6. On the night we camped here, there was a semi-truck parked at the motel about 50 feet from our rig. He had his generator/refrigeration unit running all night and it was loud. Much louder than the traffic noise from the nearby interstate highway. I realize this is not the fault of the park owners, but it does affect the quality of your camping experience when your site is located near the motel. Additionally, there were numerous cars going in and out of the motel at night and several boisterous people there. Another negative was the unfriendly nature of the employees at this park. We have stayed at places in the past that did not have the greatest amenities, but the friendly employees made the experience very nice. The opposite experience occurred at this park. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not lush or plush but an adequate overnight stopping place. We didn’t get to use the facilities much. It is just off the Interstate and convenient to downtown Abilene. I’d use this park again . We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an old but well kept campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were well maintained and tidy. Although this campground is right on the freeway, we did not hear much noise after 8pm. The Wi-Fi had a good signal, but the speed was very slow. It took a while for us to do our email, due to the slow speed. We would stay here again, should the need arise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice KOA with somewhat larger site than most KOA's. Other posts are correct, that construction makes it a little more difficult to get park, but still pretty easy on/off I-20. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It has dirt and gravel sites. There is adequate room for a big rig, depending on the specific location. The bathhouse is clean, but very old as is the laundry facility. It is the best of the offerings in the area, but a shame to charge so much for facilities in desperate need of an upgrade. Our rate reflects the KOA membership and the 'stay 6 nights, get one free', but also the extra charge for our 2 kids. Internet access is spotty. We will stay here again, but only because they are the only facility in the community and we have family in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place for overnight stay. A little difficult getting from and to I-20 with all of the construction going on. Nice people running the office. A well kept park. I would rate it higher but the construction in the area. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The employees were very friendly and professional. My GPS took me to the wrong place but a phone call to the park got us back on track. I was not able to connect to the Wi-Fi due to low signal strength. I did not want to move sites so I did not report this to the staff. I am sure they would have moved us if we had asked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly easy negotiating this park both in entry and in siting. Not all the sewer hookups are at the same height, so have to be mindful of this when siting. Electricity, water, etc. were working just fine. Because of construction on I-20 the exit to this park is not well-defined by the detour signs, and the road into the park is a one-way street. Might be a good idea to call park first to find the correct exit number to this park. The park is quiet and there is no RR noise at all. A good place to spend a few days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I really like this park (am here now) Very attractive setting, nice owners, easy on/off I-20 but don't notice road noise. Best is, with 2 dogs, they have a very cute fenced dog area in front, and also allow dog walking throughout the park. It is high in price, especially with the motel 8 next door at a few dollars more, but very good place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the sites were clean. The only complaint I have about this park is the cost. Also, GPS doesn't take you directly to the park so ask the park for directions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This KOA looked much better than the last time we stayed there about 4 years ago. It was neater and cleaner, the trees had been trimmed, and the sites had a good thickness of gravel. The roads were paved but were a bit rough with some potholes. The staff was nice and attentive to our needs. When we reported that the cable TV connection was broken at our site someone came immediately and fixed it. There were lots of channels, and the reception was good. Sites where we stayed were a bit narrow with trees on each side. We could open our slides easily, but could not have opened the awning. There was a table and grill. Sites were also close to one another, but they were placing RV’s in every other spot so it did not feel crowded. We did not see the open sites that are shown on their website, but even with trees we really didn’t have any trouble getting into or out of our site. We did not use the free Wi-Fi, or the pool, or the restrooms/showers. Even though it was just off I-20, we did not notice any noise. We felt the price was just a little high, but given the other campgrounds in this area we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA park. Sites are a little close but even our 40' had no problem. Wi-Fi is a little spotty but when it works it's good. Right off of I-20 but construction will make you crazy getting on or off I-20. Park staff is knowledgeable but seems bothered a little by people, they need to loosen up a little. We would use it again if in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this RV park as a stopover on our way through Texas. We prefer state parks but this park was conveniently located right on I-20 so we tried it. For us, it was an excellent overnighter. Staff were professional and very helpful, washrooms were spotless, and cable and wi-fi worked perfectly. A dog park was a welcome surprise. Highway noise is unavoidable and should have no effect on tired travellers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All I can say is TIGHT...pull throughs,yes, but hard to maneuver. We pulled in with our coach and trailer but had to back out of our site because of trees. This park has enough trees to start its own paper mill. If you want a suntan, you'll have to find a spot where the sun shines through the canopy! Why they don't clean it up is a mystery to me. At least cut them away from the turns at the sites and trim up to 14'. Not much to this park, Wi-Fi worked spotty when we were there. Typical KOA, a little over priced for what you get. Stayed one night, that was enough. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When looking for an over night spot I try to avoid KOA’s because they generally charge more than others. Their prices usually reflect their amenities but we rarely make use of them on an over night stay. Having read the other reviews, I could see why there were mixed emotions about the site each was assigned. The grounds are laid out in such a way that each site is a bit different than your neighbors. I had to back out of my pull-thru whereas my neighbor had no problem pulling out of his. My only complaint was their location. Getting in from westbound I-20 was a snap, getting back on was a trip through the twilite zone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the very best commercial parks we have ever stayed at. When we arrived, we were properly greeted, and told more than we ever hoped to know about the park and the Abilene area. We were escorted to our site, and the host made sure everything was fine with the site. He even assisted us in our parking. I felt as though I was registering at a five star hotel. Everything works here; the voltage was spot on; the WiFi works much better here than my Verizon Broadband; the place was very clean and everything, and I mean everything, was freshly painted. You will want to add this park to your itinerary whenever traveling through Texas; just leave room for me when I return again! As the gubernator says, "I will be back". We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park. The dirt around there is very dark and although the sites are gravel, it is hard to keep the dirt out of the coach. Maneuvering through the park was a little difficult in our big rig. It was fine for an overnight, but I don't think I would not want to stay for an extended time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA. Nice park hosts and clean facilities. Roads needed repair. Spots were a little tight for tow vehicle and RV to fit in. Had to ask a few RV'ers to move their trucks so I could get out of my spot when it was time to leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites were okay but when we checked in their pipes were frozen. Not anticipating this, we asked if we could fill our gravity tank from somewhere. The office had running water, along with the laundry and shower house, but the lady who worked there said "no" they wouldn't let us fill up. Now, if you knew your lines were frozen, wouldn't you make sure there was another way for your customers to fill at least there gravity tank? Thank goodness this was just an overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would not stay here again, the place is very run down. We used it as an overnight stop over but really wish we would have kept driving. Playground is basically falling down, the bathrooms and showers were closed because of sewer problems. We were charged for our 3 year old even though web site says children under 6 are free. There are also stray cats running around that don't look very healthy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beware, there is a drag-strip 1/4 miles from this RV Park. Weekend events going on Fri.Sat.& Sun. from 4 PM to 12:30 AM. The noise, revving motors, and screeching of tires was absolutely unbearable. The sites are not very well maintained, some litter in sites. We feel it is over priced for what they offer. Normal rate for one night is $35.00, but we booked in for three nights, therefore got a lower rate. We would not have stayed that long if we had known about the drag strip. Also, work camper dogs continually barking. Good Wi-Fi and good T.V. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff at the campground were very friendly, they even gave our dogs each a bone. They were very helpful in guiding us to our site which was very shady as there are trees everywhere. The sites are somewhat tight due to the number of trees but we were able to maneuver our 41 foot motor home and dinghy without any problems. The facilities are not pristine but they are satisfactory. Access to west bound 20 upon leaving was not very clear. The WiFi access was strong with high bandwidth. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here were EXCELLENT, very friendly and informative. The RV Park itself was tatty and the location poor with difficult access roads from roadworks with very little shops or local facilities. The only reason we stayed here was due to the excellent description on the KOA magazine which made it sound very inviting and pleasant with many facilities - it stated that you could hear the birds and that you could not hear the roadway, when in fact all you could hear was the roadway and the trains, even when in your RV !!! Ground is tatty, store is not stocked and I would not stay here again, unless it was a last resort. I will stress again that the staff were great, but facilities, location and condition of the grounds were not to the required standard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground has gone down a little since we stayed here a year ago. Grounds a little ragged and more long term residents. Interstate 20 is under construction just outside and the entrance ramp was a little difficult to negotiated. I'll look for another facility next time through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This very nice KOA was adjacent to Interstate 20. It had a secluded feel, not too much road noise, wonderful old trees, nice staff, and clean buildings. We stayed a night and would return when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Staff terrific,but would not stay here, again.The park is located evidently in a very low elevation,because there are lots and lots and lots of mosquitoes. The ladies restroom was clean but no bathroom tissue, and the men's bathroom was not clean and had no tissue, either. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Pet area was small but OK. Lots of mosquitoes when we were there. WiFi was weak for me. Easy access into large pull-through. People were very nice to us. Nice shaded spaces. Areas were large enough for our slides. Trash can at site is a bonus. Beside Motel 6 and right next to I-20 makes for some noise. Sewer connection could be lower for better flow. Good for overnight stay but expensive compared to other comparable parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice KOA. Our main requirements are pull through, 50 amp and WIFI, and it had all of the above, plus friendly, helpful staff and a clean park with nice sites. It was easy to maneuver our 40 foot motor home in and out of the site and the park. It is just off I-10, so there is some traffic noise. It is also about 1 mile from Harlow's, which is an excellent local barbeque joint. A good overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. I found it to be clean and had ample space for my motorhome and tow without having to unhook. I spent one night here and would stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We felt very welcome at this campground. Wifi is very important to us and it works great there. Wonderful people working there, from the phone call to reserve a site until we left. I would recommend this KOA to everyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
With KOA card we payed under $30 for the night. We came here because of the reviews written before us, thanks. People were very friendly, helpful and courteous. The site was wide, level and had a patio and table. It had rained a lot and the staff were trying to pump water out of low areas around the sites. WiFi worked excellent. It is well worth the difference in cost compared to any other CG in the Abilene area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I guess I am different than some other reviewers of this park, but I did not think it was anywhere near worth what they charge per night. The rear dog run was very, very small and grown up with grass. The sewer connections where we were did not have plastic tops or sealers but just had boards put on top of the sewer hole where odor escaped. It was hard to level our rig there on the gravel and the interior roads reminded me of older parks not designed for a large rig. It just was overpriced in my opinion for what you got. We have stayed in "resort" type parks with free breakfast, free wifi and free newspapers, etc. and good interior roads for $35 or less a night. The people were nice but to us it looked like a much lower priced campground - maybe $25/night would be more fair. If they are going to charge an upscale rate then the park should reflect it. On the other hand - there is not much good competition in the area to keep their pricing in line. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really great campground! Right off the interstate, so it's easy on & easy off. Interstate noise wasn't bad since there are so many trees surrounding the park. Campground is VERY clean & well maintained. The staff, sporting their yellow KOA shirts are always working on the campground. Very friendly & polite office staff. We were escorted to our site, just to be sure that everything was suitable & to our liking. Very clean pool, nice gameroom & good cable connection. Good provisions in office. We will be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasant KOA - pricey of course, but that's typical for KOA's. This is definitely a campground and not an "RV Resort". They do have a miniature golf and pleasant overall forested setting. Gravel sites and interior roads. Rustic and well treed camp area - some of the sites were set at angles, making it slightly difficult to maneuver our 37' fifth wheel into the spot, but they always have an escort to guide & help. If you bring a 'big rig' motorhome, make sure you ask for a straight through pull-through, the staff is very accommodating. We were there in the early spring, and by 3 p.m. they were full! Might be a good idea to make reservations if you're passing through at a popular time of year. (glad we had reservations) Although this is quite near the freeway, it was very quiet. Lots of bird and little critter to watch. Limited gift and RV Supply - lots of little statuary, wooden footbridges and other rustic touches, this is definitely a well-kept camp. Free WiFi and nice cable. We'll stay here again if in we're in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Surrounded by forest and stream land, this is definitely a well-kept camp. Free Wi-Fi and nice cable TV. We'll stay here again if in we're in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy on and off access to I-20. Pulled in late after office closed. No problem. Chose a spot. Filled out paperwork. Hot showers. Slept good. Called person in charge to make sure we filled out paperwork correctly the next morning. Very nice and helpful. Made us feel good that we were trusted. We'll definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff greeted us warmly, assisted us with propane, and escorted us to the campsite in very short order. Well-maintained campground with easy on/off access to I-20. Will stay here again when in the Abilene area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, operated by very nice people. The sites are all shaded, and level. The wireless internet worked very well. Nice pool, and a somewhat nice mini golf course. (first game was free, so who am I to complain). We will definitely stay here again if we pass this way. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This quiet, beautiful CG has been under new ownership for about a year. There are a lot of shade trees, rose bushes, and flowers planted everywhere. There's even a food service trailer that offers catfish, chicken, hot dogs, and other things. The bathrooms & showers were sparkling, the pool was inviting, and a latte/cappucino machine in the store. Owners are friendly and seemed truly concerned about the campers. We stayed in one of the camping cabins but will probably take a tent next time. We camped here in a ?.
The only reason I give them a 3 is that we paid for one week and after 1 night we wanted to leave and we got refunded the remaining nights. Their idea of a dog walk is nothing more than an overgrown field littered with junk and full of sand burrs. We had to carry both of our dogs out of the area as their paws were full of sand burrs; not pet friendly by any means. The real reason we left after one night is we were given a site that is no more than 30 yards from the interstate. The noise was horrible; worst night sleep I can ever remember. I would stay in a WalMart parking lot or a rest area before ever going here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park gets high marks mainly because the gal in the office is so nice. The park is about what you'd expect in Abilene. Gravel roads and sites with few trees, which was OK for us for our roof mounted satellite dish. 3 nights planned turned into 8 due to slide out problems. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed for one night. Site was very short for us to remain hooked-up. Many long term or permanent residents. Area could use a good clean-up. Dog walk is County Road. This is a pet peeve of mine. If you allow pets, have a dog run! Freeway noise is loud, especially, on the front row where we were parked. We would return as it's probably the better of all the Parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are very short. Our motor home is 36ft, with a tow. Could not fit in first site and barely fit in the next one. Was for one night, so dealt with the truck sticking out a little at the back. Office was clean, pool area looked good. Lots of residents in this park. If you have a 40 footer, keep going unless you want to unhook. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Checked in for 7 nights. Should have taken prior reviews seriously. Small, tight spaces. Gravel sites. Right on I-20 if you have big rig. Tree tore our roof when we pulled in. Site is covered with cigarette butts and dog droppings. Wish there was somewhere else in this area that got better reviews. Don't waste your money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is next to the freeway-noise all day and night. Roads and sites are gravel, just fit our 37 foot M/H with towed park sidewise across back. Park is clean, many permanents. Staff was friendly and shopping not to far away. Water, power, and cell (AT&T) was good. We would try to find something farther from the freeway next time we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an adequate place to stay on the way through Abilene. The shower/bathroom facilities are very clean. The Wi-Fi was adequate. The park sits on I-20 so it is a little noisy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean park and convenient to the I-20. However, unless you enjoy traffic noise or can remove your hearing aids at night, it is very noisy. Pull through sites are short. We have a 30 foot RV and could barely fit our dingy on it also. Website advertises free coffee in office. When we checked in, there was a layer of mold floating on the half-full pot of coffee. Pool was closed. Owners were happy we were there, and were very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had stayed here a few years ago, and we had forgotten just how noisy this place is! As far as being big rig friendly, we camped here in a 36' RV with a towed, and with 2 slides. The sites were very narrow and we barely fit lengthwise. The manager was very friendly and helpful. However, we won't stay here again because of the road noise from I-20. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As previously reviewed the hospitality at this park is the best. Location is OK for an overnight but you have to be prepared for the I-20 highway noise!! This park is so close to the main interstate it is scary! The traffic noise does not stop 24 / 7! The park is full of permanent residents and has no atmosphere at all. The owners are lovely, the sights are level, but that is where it stops. If I was going to stay in Abilene again I would stay at another campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I think the owners need to reevaluate what big rig friendly means. We have a 45ft motorhome and towing. We were sticking out 6' on the road in front and 6' on the road in back, our slide went from 1 tree on 1 side and when we opened the awning it went over the next camper. The park is located on top of the highway and their is a considerable amount of road noise. I had to ask the neighbor to move his truck so we could get out of our site. This is not a big rig friendly park, you can do it, but be careful. Safe place to stop in a pinch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The first thing you notice at this park is the friendly owners. All the usual facilities are provided and the restrooms and showers are very clean. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent with high speed capabilities. It is just off the interstate so the noise is noticeable but not offensive. It was too cold to try the pool but it is in very good condition. If you're in the area, you should give this park a try. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We easily pulled our 28" travel trailer & 4 door pickup into our site. Hookups are easy, and have a light if you are coming in at night. The bathrooms are squeaky clean, bright and airy. The roomy showers have the added security of a wooden outer door with locks. There are older trees, and numerous newly planted trees. Sparkling pool, perfect for summer. The owners are a gracious, welcoming couple. Everything here is clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Host was very nice and helpful. Park was so close to the interstate that I would swear the big rigs moved our RV when they passed. This was the loudest park I've ever been to. Spaces were very narrow and we had to park our extra vehicle horizontal to the RV. Very crowded, very tight and very noisy. Not much else in the area. Very overpriced. We would find a different city to overnight in next time. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice enough folks at the front desk although I must say I have to comment on not having an off-season rate. Paid rate supposedly reflects Good Sam discount. Spouse said rest rooms/showers were wonderful. Level, gravel site & we noticed someone picking up around the landscaped entry area. But holy cow, the noise from the freeway is incredible. Shame on us for not paying more attention to it when we pulled in - but when you're tired, I guess you intend to ignore a lot in the hope that you can hit the sack ASAP. Would not stay here again unless I notice some sort of sound barrier. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very easy park to get to from the Interstate. Very friendly staff. Pool looked brand new and very well maintained. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. A good overnight spot. Not much to do in Abilene on Sunday, most everything is closed. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-20 just east of Abilene. Good for one or two nights. Many long term working folks make the park more of a trailer park than an RV park. All utilities accessible and worked properly. Very small but clean restroom/laundry room. One shower and toilet each for men and women. Sites are long and level with above average space between spaces. Good gravel interior roads and pads. Some traffic noise from I-20. Staff was friendly. I would come back if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We came in after the office closed and the check in was easy with good instructions. I like this place! If road noise bothers you, don't stay here, but I didn't mind it. They have excellent facilities and the park is clean and well kept. I like the location as it is easy to access the highway and close to restaurants and shopping. They are not rules crazy here which I greatly appreciate. We would definitely stay here again. Initially, we were going to stay at another park down the road but when I inquired their about pricing, etc...I received a rather curt almost rude email from the owner and that was enough for me to look elsewhere. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is right next to I-20. Since it was cool enough that we kept the windows closed, the noise was not a problem. The WiFi worked fine and cell phone service was good. The roads and parking sites are all gravel. There is some grass and small trees. The RV sites are a little tight and a little short for a long coach. Our coach and toad are almost 50' long and we only had an extra 4' or so. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Every thing at this park is better than average, except the showers and they are great. Really over sized and a private adjoining dressing room and very clean. Will most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We paid $27 with a Good Sam discount. Pretty barren area; just gravel with small patches of grass. Surrounding areas aren't much but we were only passing through for the night. Clean, friendly, good Wi-Fi but a little pricey based on the scenery. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice no-frills park. It's not much to look at, but the managers in the office were very nice. Dirt/gravel site was level. WiFi worked well. No cable and only 5 TV stations. Pool looked nice, but I didn't use it. Laundry room had 2 washers and dryers at $1.00 each. Office, club room appeared fairly new. Bath/shower had 3 toilets and 4 showers. It was clean. Shower area wasn't too roomy for dressing. Not a destination park, but I would stay here overnight again. Convenient to I-20 and easy to find. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arrived after towing in heavy downpour. Most of park had dirt (mud) roads. We selected the only available space that didn't have water accumulation. Very tight to maneuver, partly due to vehicles parked in roadways. Pool was dirty. Shower was roomy and generally clean. Very noisy park. Highway noise and loud buzzing from heat pump in front of office. Mostly permanent residents with loud diesel trucks. Over nighters are segregated to the front of the park. Staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again because location is convenient compared to other options. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent the month of November at Abilene RV Park and had a wonderful time. The people who ran the park were wonderful Christian people and bent over backwards to make our stay a pleasant one. The monthly price was very reasonable. They were quick to fix any problems. We enjoyed our stay there and I look forward to staying there again. The showers were fabulous with great water pressure and always clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived here late after being rudely treated at the KOA down the road. This was a Sunday night and the office was closed. They had a list of sites available with 50 amps taped to the door. We chose one and pulled in. We were parked next to the Interstate but the noise was not all that bad. The next day the owner was very gracious in welcoming us to the park and gave us directions on using the free Wi-Fi...which by the way was very good. We had good Verizon Air Card coverage and enjoyed our stay. Not a destination park but has a good location if you are visiting Abilene. We will come back and stay again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Came in late at night and occupied a night spot as listed on the office door. The road between the office and our spot was very tight. Lots of seasonal workers and their trucks. Site was an ample length pull through with easy to find connections. When I checked in and paid the next morning the office staff was extremely helpful. They knew I came in very late (1 am) and gave me an extra discount, explaining my below rate quote. More than fine for an overnight stop in route. I would do it again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good overnight park, very close to interstate 20 but we had no problem with the noise. Old KOA park. Staff very nice and helpful. Nice pool. Bathrooms and showers are clean but old. There are signs up that they are going to remodel them. Gravel roads and level sites with good hookups. I had no problem driving in and making turns with a 34ft motor home and a toad. We would stay here again as an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at the Abilene RV Park on two different occasions in March while attending family functions. This RV park has easy access to I-20 and is convenient to downtown Abilene. It is well-maintained with a friendly office staff. We were able to manuever our 5th-wheel with no difficulty and the site was level. Having free WiFi internet access was a real bonus! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Sites are level and easy to get into and out of. Freeway noise might be a problem as the campground is right on I-20. Strong WIFI but be sure to get the password. 2 washers and dryers, wife okayed them. Price was slightly higher than others listed with no explanation asked or given. I presented my Good Sam card so I assume I was given the discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Arrived on Sunday early afternoon, office is closed all day on Sunday. Selected site from a list of available sites. Sites were fairly level. Most sites are being used by permanent residents. Park is located next to freeway and frontage road, very noisy. Lounge was closed because it is being used as a temporary office. Laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers. Could not locate bathroom and showers. Wi-Fi was available, but could not log in because I did not have the password. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We found Abilene RV Park to be very nice. The new ownership has made multiple improvements. It is very clean and is also well maintained. The owners were very friendly, and they make it very easy to pull in late and hook up without having to make arrangements that night. We always do that, and then we pay the next day. It is well lit, and far enough from the interstate to be quiet. We have stayed in the KOA there, and have looked at the third park in Abilene, and have decided to always choose Abilene RV Park from now on. The woman at the KOA is very unpleasant to deal with. We go to Abilene often as one of our elderly mothers lives there, and we are very happy to have such a nice place to stay on our frequent visits. We had a nice note from the owner, after we arrived home. We highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park is close to I-20 with easy access to and from I-20, but sufficiently distant from it that road noise is not bothersome. We arrived after dark and found the park to be well lit and the angled pull-through parking slots facilitated ingress and eventual egress. There's plenty of grass-covered space between adjacent slots. The park is functional, well-maintained, clean and litter free. Major renovations are under way and are almost complete. The roads have been repaired and are fine. The laundry room and ladies' showers/ bathrooms have been completely remodeled; the men's equivalents are almost finished. I found no resemblance between the park in its current condition to that described in reviews posted in 2005. I strongly suggest that those earlier reviews be utterly ignored. I would stay here again. The park is under fairly new management, represented by Brenda and David, who are friendly and hospitable hosts. Their hospitality extended to us even after we left. When preparing to leave I had tossed a trash bag into a dumpster. The next day when we arrived home I learnt that my wife had stuffed all our laundry into that bag! A quick call to Brenda resulted in our laundry being retrieved and sent to us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a pretty scary-looking park: large dogs running loose (neighbors?); shabby trailers of permanent residents; open holes in road for plumbing repairs; overflowing dumpster; rutted roads (thank goodness it was dry!); just dirt, no grass. The trees were just obstacles, not shade; and although the ad said 65' big rig sites, our 62' hung over at both ends. Good point: just off I-20 (but bad if you are a light sleeper!). If ya gotta sleep, stop here. Otherwise, keep going. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I rated this place a "2" because in my opinion I am sure there is a worse place somewhere that deserves a "1" but I have not been there yet. How they can get a Good Sam rating is a mystery to me - also in my opinion. We pulled in the front and tried to get out by way of their circle and almost got stuck in the huge mudholes. We left. We would not stay there. In reflection, I think this is the only park we have ever turned into and just left after looking at it. We turned in and my wife said, "I am not spending the night here." And that was that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is old, rundown with chug holes everywhere. No Maintenance. Most sites cannot accommodate slides. We finally got into one after trying three others. The staff would rather be somewhere else. Truly the worst park I've ever seen. It was so late and we were so tired that it had to do. This is an ideal spot for an RV park along I-20. Someone willing to put up the money and work, would have a goldmine if they so desired. It has to be rated a 1 as there isn't any lower number on the board. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is what it is. Convenient to the interstate with gravel roads, good size and level sites. Hookups are well located and easy access. Mine did have muddy area which I promptly tracked into the coach. No office, you just leave your money in an envelope. Host guy did come by and give a friendly welcome and necessary advice. Easy in and easy out. Otherwise nothing to brag about. No patio pad or picnic table. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, had to go to my AT&T hotspot. There is a RV center next door, didn’t go there so I have no info as to what it has or does. For a one night stop I would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is next to freeway, so some freeway noise. Roads and sites are gravel, no shade, but sites are long with space between. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Small restroom and laundry. No other amenities. We would stay here again in our motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 4 nights. We were very pleased to locate this facility for needed repair. We called (no problem) were scheduled for service, told not to worry about late arrival, to pick a spot and settle up at appt time. As full-timers for 2 1/2 years we know quality RV sites and repair service centers. The Park was clean, safe, with large pull-throughs, all with full hookup. Not a vacation resort spot but was more than adequate for our needs. "Franklin's Big Country RV" was a fully equipped RV Service Center. The Staff was friendly and professional from call to job completion. The repair charge was fair. Having the Park and Service Center next door to each other was an added big plus. Location is on the East-side Abliene, TX setback off I-20. Abliene is friendly town. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly new park and seems to cater mostly to area oil and construction workers. However, as we visit this area frequently, we were pleased to find a park in the area that is clean and quiet (sites far enough off I-20), with long pull through and decently spaced sites with no obstructions to parking or satellite reception. Roads and sites are hard packed gravel. Adjacent RV dealership/management is very helpful and friendly. Good cell reception and free WiFi. Excellent long term rates. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here about a year ago and thought we would try them again since our usual campground in Big Spring, TX was sold and now taken over by oil field workers and quite frankly was a little trashy looking (we stayed there a couple of months ago.) The access road to Buck Creek off I-20 is narrow and deteriorating, on the contrast, Buck Creek's gravel interior roads were in good condition. Buck Creek's WiFi was "broken" while we were here (maybe it hasn't worked in months!) The trashy mesquite trees left when this RV park was carved out of ranch land are in dire need of trimming, we rubbed one of them pulling into our site. (Mesquite trees do nothing but soak up valuable water that other native flora could use and they have no redeeming qualities.) While convenient to I-20, Buck Creek has turned into a permanent resident's camp complete with junky travel trailers. We were in site #24 and adding to our ambiance was the *very* old travel trailer in site #26 with junk, trash, and two vehicles in the site, one of which had a flat tire. Completing the picture were three very annoying dachshunds that were chained outside during the day to dig, do their business and bark at anything that moved. I have nothing against an old travel trailer (it could be a beautiful classic), but this was junk and the owner could care less about her barking dogs or the junk. So sad. Apparently the park's owner(s) and management don't care either. HEAD'S UP: you will find this the norm in many parks in west Texas thanks to the oil boom! We camped here in a Motorhome.
There were wide long sites with bathrooms and showers. The staff was friendly and access to the park was easy off I-20. Although we were close to the Interstate, there was no unacceptable noise. We stayed only for one night but we would definitely return if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very spacious park. Wide, long sites. Laundry room and showers are in 1 small building which really stinks of mildew. Charged $3 extra for 50 amp. No cable, marginal WiFi. Manager has the personality of a log. Cable and access to recreation are offered on the website. Neither are anywhere near this park. Fine for overnight, but I won't bother with this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is easily accessed from I-20 which is about 1/2 mile away so very little traffic noise. The sites are level and easy pull-through. Interior roads are dirt, and sites are gravel. Small trees, so little shade. All sites are 50 amp. There was no cable TV when we were here, though the web site offers this as an amenity. Park is spartan with a small shower house and laundry. As one of the previous reviews noted the facilities need to be cleaned daily, which had not been done when we were here. The chained dogs were also still present. Walmart, fuel, and restaurants are about 6 miles west. We would stay here again but only as an overnight when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The road into this place is rough and you wonder if you should be going in here but it's a nice place. The good: LONG pull throughs. Enough to put two motor homes end to end. Lots of space between neighbors. Off the highway which is better than the others in town which are right next to the interstate. Quiet, half full, good owners, and good internet. Close to Abilene attractions. The Bad: one person had 4 loud dogs chained outside, which made it scary to walk near them, and the owners would not do anything about it. Bathroom/laundry room needed to be cleaned out daily. We stayed 4 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very good RV park. Great location near Abilene. Very spacious sites with good power, water, and WI-FI service. The stars at night are definitely big and bright here. We stayed for a week and very much enjoyed our stay. Will return if ever in the Abilene area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Good Sam discount. Sites were long (some of the longest we've seen), level pull throughs and there was a nice amount of space between sites. Hookups worked well, there was no cable, but we were able to pick up stations using the antenna. Use of pressure valve recommended since water pressure is 80 psi. There were no picnic tables or fire rings, probably because it can be windy and dusty. I believe there is a laundry facility, but don't know about shower facilities. Easy access off I-20. Noise wasn't a problem. Entrance to park is wide. Interior roads are dirt, sites are hard packed gravel, and we had no problem leveling. There were some permanents, but their sites were well maintained. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After you pull off the highway and turn down the little one-lane road, you are reminded of the old movie Deliverance. It almost looks like you are driving into the swamp, with banjos playing softly in the distance as you drive through the woods. A short distance later you arrive at a very nice looking RV park. The office was closed even though we arrived there early. But there were plenty of signs on the door telling you everything you needed to know. The Wi-Fi required a password, but with office closed there was no way to get a password. I hooked up to the cable TV, but there was no signal. 14 channels over the air. All of the spaces were pull-through and level. There was nice landscaping with a lot of grass and trees throughout the park. Since it was at least a quarter mile off the highway it was very quiet. A sign on the office door warns of 80 psi water pressure and to make certain you use your water pressure regulator. There were no other amenities we could see. There was a small building that looked like it might be a laundry but I did not check it out. I'm not sure i would stay there again. Since I had reserved and paid for the space online, I ended up paying for Wi-Fi and cable but received neither. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty bare bones park. 50 amp service. Lots of sand stickers so watch your pets. Owner is very friendly. Laundry is very clean. It is east of the city so very quiet. Looks like there are quite a few oil rig guys that stay for several months at a time. Would stay here again, but certainly not a destination. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very long spaces, nice people, no reservation was needed as park was only about 1/5 full early September. Great water pressure - use a regulator. Very fast wifi - no cable, but picked up about 10 digital stations off antenna. Very clean - no road noise at all - easy to get in and out. Definitely recommend it and definitely will return on another trip. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a well maintained campground. Gravel entrance road was a little dusty. The gravel pads were long with level pull throughs. Very big rig friendly, space around the RV with grass and shade trees. Bathroom and laundry were clean. Wi-Fi and cell service were good. This is a great place for a one night stopover, easy on and off the freeway, and so quiet, no freeway noise at all. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a "bare bones" park, but was good for us for just two nights. The pull-throughs are really long, the sites are large, and the streets are wide, making it easy to park and to leave. Some permanent residents but their sites were not unsightly. A good short term stop. We would definitely stay here again for one or two nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent one night at Buck Creek RV Park on our way from Austin, Texas to Wyoming & Montana. We arrived after 6:00pm and left by 7:00am the next morning so we were not there very long. It is a very good choice for a quick overnight stay but definitely a destination. The location is good right off of the interstate with easy in and out. The roads and sites were all gravel and very dusty due to the lack of rain. The sites were spaced OK - typical. The power and water worked fine. The cable TV didn't work and the Wi-Fi was spotty at best. My Verizon 4G MiFi device worked fine. We would stay there again for an overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Good Sam. We had reservations here for 2 nights but had to stay a 3rd due to car trouble. Office was friendly and helpful. Nothing fancy here but long level site, gravel drives in good condition and quiet, as it's away from the freeway. Easy access from I-20. Some long term residents but very neat tenants. Dog friendly and lots of room to walk the dog. High water pressure so use a regulator. We would definitely stay here again if we're in the area. Just what we needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Long pull through sites - should accommodate anything legal to drive. Owners friendly. Gravel roads, gavel sites, but grass all around! Great to see after coming from the west! High water pressure - use a reducer (and the owners remind you). Freeway audible, but not bothersome. Lots of trees between the park and the freeway. No trains! Don't know if this is a Official RV Park? Laundry room very clean - two washers/ two dryers. A few long term rigs, but mostly short termer or overnight. Two sewer hookups per site - everyone should be able to get close enough. We'd stay here again while in the Abilene area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's no frills and pretty much a one-night stop but it was great for that. It was grassy, the site was level, and there was minimal freeway noise. We had originally planned to stay at the KOA up the road but their Wi-Fi had gone down. So, we called this park after hours, used a credit card, got the password over the phone, and pulled into a spot that we chose after hours. It was perfect. Took a stroll around before dark and watched an excellent sunset. Don't let the rustic look put you off. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is conveniently located right off I-20, there is some freeway noise but not bothersome. The interior roads are wide and easy to get around, sites are very long and easy to park, mostly level. There is one building besides the office, with 2 bathroom/shower rooms, and 2 each washer and dryers. Both were well maintained, clean, and nice. The Wi-Fi worked well. The very short entry road is graded dirt, it made me wonder if I had the right place, but then I saw a small sign for the RV park. I would return if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for three days while enroute to San Antonio for a longer stay. This is a no-frills park, but more than adequate for a short stay. It was a good base for doing the activities in Abilene. No one ever emptied the trash in the bathrooms during our stay, but otherwise the bathrooms and showers were clean. We would stay here (for a short time) if we were passing through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Even with a rather low rating, I would return here if traveling I-20. This is a "back-to-basics" Park with minimal amenities. All streets and sites are gravel and very dusty. I would be concerned about stopping here if it was raining. There are not patios and grass is minimal. There is no laundry and no restrooms. But, all the sites are pull-through and very long. The Wi-Fi access is one of the best I've experienced. I would suggest this Park for a short, overnight stay and not a place for anything much longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Buck Creek for one night as we were traveling through the Abilene area. The people running the place were very nice and helpful. The park is easy to access (right off of I-20). The sites were clean and level. It is a no frills kind of place and definitely not a destination, but if you just need one night or two as you are passing through, it will work out just fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second time staying here. It is a good price for the overnight stay. There is no shade, lots of gravel dust and a ton of full time residential campers. The bathrooms and showers were very clean!! We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Buck Creek has long, level limestone sites which are easy to navigate. Staff is friendly and helpful. Our site was shady. Long term sites were clean. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice small park located close to the Interstate. Access is down a narrow, paved road. The park is attractive, and has a lot of trees. Sites are gigantic. Many long terms campers, but almost all have well kept sites with expensive RVs. Park is quiet, however one might experience some highway noise if the wind is from the south. Much to our chagrin the owners are enlarging the park. A good thing never seems to last. Although we are sure the made some effort at preservation, the new area is almost devoid of trees and will detract from the ambiance of the setting. Nonetheless, this is a nice park for overnight or for a week long visit to the Abilene area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The good: Easy to find off of the interstate and traffic noise is very minimal. Nice long pull throughs will handle any length rigs, some with sand/gravel base ours was reclaimed asphalt. Good 50 amp electric (50 amp extra $), water pressure was high but OK with a pressure reducer. There are two sewer hookups for each site, front and back. Convenient for an overnight stay. A very nice rural setting which was very well kept when we were here. Negative: Our sewer hookup standpipe was about 11 inches above the ground, plus being slightly uphill from my site which made it almost the same height as my discharge from the RV. Some other sites were the more normal 2 to 3 inches above ground, which I probably could have requested. The owner /manager could take a few lessons in dealing with the public and was not overly pleasant on the phone or when checking in. We would stay again though, as overall we liked the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After staying at a string of Corps of Engineers campgrounds, this was a bit of a letdown. It's a good place for an overnight stop. All sites are pull-through and level with sufficient room between sites. The campground is clean and well maintained and the Wi-Fi works good. The campground is far enough off the highway so that the noise is hardly noticeable, but it's a typical along-the-road campground, with rows of sites with no real shade, just sitting there in the middle of the west Texas scrub brush. However, with that said, if we came this way again, we would probably stop here overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great site for overnight. It is easy to reach and easy to find from the I-20, but far enough away that the sound of traffic is not bothersome. The pull thrus are long and wide and easily accommodated us at 62ft and four slide outs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in the park for 1.5 years and obviously loved it there - we did have other options but loved the owners, the park and the feeling of being out in the country. The only thing missing is paved roads - lots of dust stirred up on those gravel roads. Good Wi-Fi, fantastic owners, very safe park. Right off the interstate so easy in and easy out. Highly recommend, whether for a night or a long-term stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous reviews are spot on. Very long, easy access pull through sites, great sunsets, about 5 good channels on the antenna. Warning: Beware of the water pressure at 80 lbs! They warn you about that when you sign in. We could only stay for one night but would have no trouble staying longer. We would recommend this to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Surprisingly nice, small park located far enough off the interstate that there is very little traffic noise. Enormous, long sites with two sewer hook up’s per each. Sites are basically level. Some trees. Not a great deal of infrastructure but for my taste this is the best spot anywhere in the area. The road in from the highway is a little narrow and bumpy but if you take your time it’s fine. It rained almost constantly during the two day stay and there was almost no standing water or issues. This park goes to the top of my list! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Extremely nice RV park. Two sewer hook-ups at all sites, good 50 amp, gravel pads were at least 100' long with about a 15' space between each rig. We did hear some interstate noise but that was due to a south wind. It would really be nice if each site had a picnic table though. Area was clean and sites were among mesquite trees and other trees have been planted. Rate was $30 a night but with Good Sam we paid $27 for one night. I checked out the laundry/BR area which contained 2 washers, 2 dryers along with 2 BR's each clean as a whistle. What impressed us though were the sites, all facing N/W, door side was shady all afternoon. Good Wi-Fi and cable TV. This park could also use a club house since it would be perfect for rallies. Owner could put a sign at the frontage road though saying park is a 1/4 of a mile mile down the road on the left. We didn't see the park sign right away nor the RV park since it's off the road, had to turn around down the road and skuffed up the back of our 40' rig. We will most definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$27 for 30 amp. Looked like 50 sites to us, however we had no problem getting a site, there were many available on a Thursday. It's a no frills park, but clean with large sites and wide roads. There are trees, but not real big trees. Traffic noise wasn't bad as it's a quarter of a mile from the interstate. The cost seemed high but when you compare it to other local parks it's in line. When traveling we find many parks over priced, that's why we try to support Passport parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great little park. Every site was very large and easy to get into. Absolutely NO highway noise that we could hear. Bathroom and laundry room left a lot to be desired (seemed like an after thought) - one toilet, shower, washer & dryer. The room was clean, though. The attendant seemed to be in a perpetually grumpy mood - bothered by having to do his job - almost felt like we had to apologize for asking a question. The park was a very nice park despite him. Enjoyed walking around with the dogs in the evening and looking at the stars. Had to de-burr the dogs going back into the coach. One thing this part of west Texas has in abundance is burrs and, man, do they stick! Had to make sure and clean them from inside the coach also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
By far the best RV Park in the area, this his has been a great find for us. This was our second stay. All are pull through sites that are more than 80' to 100' long with lots of elbow room from your neighbor. This park is only a couple of years old and all facilities are immaculate. The 1/4 mile narrow road from the interstate was not a problem as it is not well traveled. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park for an over night, but a little expensive for no amenities, not even a light. Extra long and wide pull thorough sites, good 50/30 Amp electrical and two sewer connections. Good luck getting a site. There are 30 sites not 50 as stated and 28 are always full with monthly workers. We stayed a week and watched them turn away travelers because of this. I would stay here again if I could get a site, but might as well just go down the road! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pro's: Nice location right off I-20, but felt like you were out in the country. Large gravel sites that were mostly level, great separation. Con's: Pretty pricey for what you get. Facilities are limited. No campground personnel on site overnight. I would stay here again but would grumble about the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is convenient to I-20 and that is it's best feature. Good overnight place but not much else. Showers were fairly clean although we did not use them. Bathrooms in general were not clean, trash was overflowing on to the floor, no toilet paper, hair in sinks...etc. Laundry room is part of bath and shower building. If someone is doing laundry, you are just behind one door in close quarters when using the shower or restroom. Some full time residents and what looked to be several RV's that were being stored. It is very spacious and easy to get in and out of. Office was closed but person that checked us in was very friendly and courteous. Good internet connection and got a good nights rest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Sam rate. A good over night park. Excellent bathrooms and laundry. Two ply toilet paper and antiseptic hand wash. Did not skimp on heat in December. A RV sells and service less than a mile on frontage road. Very high water pressure. They charge $3 for each person over two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on and off I-20 using exit #294, this RV traveler's park is just a couple miles outside Abilene and a pleasant surprise! The location, roughly a mile off the interstate keeps road noise at a minimum. Fabulously long pull-through sites made maneuvering a breeze, with plenty of distance between neighbors. 30/50amp power, clean, robust water pressure (use a regulator), couple sewer outlets per site and a clear view of the southern sky rounds out the feature list. Verizon air-card was sluggish but usable. Cell phones worked without issue. Although we did not use it, the little bathroom/laundry house was clean and neat as a pin. Several longer-term units scattered about and yes: there's a couple fierce little chihuahuas running loose when we stayed here. Friendly owner and no hassles for the traveler. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are a few good reasons to stay at this park, and they are: 1. Close to I-20 (even though bad road). 2. Clean restrooms and showers. 3. Sites are fairly level, but for us it stops there. Buck Creek Road is very narrow and has pot holes. We were in the third RV site ( fairly close to the one Wi-Fi antenna on the office building) but the Wi-Fi did not work. Asked the owner about it, and he said, "Mine is working." It would have been nice if he had been willing to reboot the system (it works in other campgrounds) but don't say you have Wi-Fi if it does not work. We do not own a pet, even though we do like dogs. There was one dog (very friendly) that had the run of the campground, not on a leash. If campers are suppose to: "ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY, they do their business, YOU scoop." Why are some (one in this case ) allowed to run free? No one was watching this dog. We made our reservations for this campground through the central reservation center, back on July 9th, when we were planning our trip. This was one campground on our return home. It was charged to our credit on 7/09/2009. Buck Creek owner said he had no record of our reservation at the campground, but as I always do, I had the e-mail confirmation, showing it had been charged, plus I always carry the credit card statement, showing the charge, also. The owner did accept it, but don't know as he would have, had I not had all the paperwork with reservation and confirmation numbers with $0.00 balance. The trash dumpster was overflowing with garbage sacks on the surrounding ground, and yet we were advised: "Do not leave garbage outside overnight because of the critters." We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
The owner was very nice. The park was not busy so we had our pick of sites. The mesquite trees are still low enough not to bother satellites but they give some morning & afternoon shade. The sites are very long & level with choices on sewer hook ups. The roads & sites are gravel, mostly, but there is some sturdy grass between sites. There's not much to do in the park, but we like that. We were asked about Wi-Fi when we checked in, so it must be offered - we carry a satellite dish so we didn't get details. We'd come back - it's soooo much better than Tye. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As you can read in other reviews, this is a no frills place. This is not a place to enjoy recreation. But if you are on your way to somewhere and you need a place that is easy to get into, this is the place. It has the longest pull throughs I've ever seen. Two sewer connects per site, so you can line up as you need. Very, very level, so for our late night arrival and early departure things went very smoothly. Made my reservation online and no hassles. If you need what this is, there is none better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice park with very nice owners. It is close to Abilene, Dyess AFB, Clyde, Baird, Tye and other small towns. Easy in and easy out with extra large pull throughs. We have been here a week and we shall return on a regular basis. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy swings for big rigs. Not much here other than the basics. Overpriced for just a field with hook ups. The road going to the park is bumpy and needs repair. The owner was very nice and also helpful. This if OK for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like no frills, yet long, level sites with great water pressure and no highway noise, this place is for you. This was an overnight stop and easy off and back on the interstate. Don't expect anything extra, just a good site for an overnight. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very pleasant, open campground with exceptionally long sites. Although there are no shady sites, there are a number of small trees, recently planted, that will eventually provide shade, and there are wide grassy areas between the gravel pads. The park is near the interstate exit but is set well back from the interstate and there are lots of trees in between, making it very quiet. The only reason I did not give this park a 10 was that there was some junk in the back of the park that should either be tidied up, removed, or screened. Also, there are no services at this exit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Arrived after dark. It was difficult to find the campground due to a small unlighted sign several feet off the hiway. A phone call to the campground quickly got us back on track. We were met at the front entrance and quickly checked in and pointed to our site. Pull thru was very easy to enter and was level. Hook-ups were properly placed and well maintained. We did not do any more than use this as a night stopover but would certainly use it again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Would not have known about this place if not for RV Park Reviews! Infrastructure is sound, water, sewer, electricity all good. All pull throughs; LONG, could accommodate anything. We had made a reservation and had late arrival. Everything went perfectly. It's not fancy, but it is clean, clean, clean. Easy in, easy out. We will make this our Abilene stop every time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is only 2 to 3 years old so is still a work in progress. We did find it well kept and will stay here again when we visit friends in the area. The owner was working on adding more sites when we were last there. It was nice that the streets are wide enough that we could drive our 40 ft. MH in and turn without fear. Long pull thrus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff met us and check in went smoothly. Gravel roads brought us to a long, level gravel pull through. Very quiet campground, but not far from the interstate. The park is going through upgrades, as new electric boxes have been installed at each site. Also, cable tv and phone jacks are now at the sites even though no service for them is available at this time. Newly planted trees are at each site as well. It is only a short drive to Abilene from the campground. We stayed here in a fifth wheel and would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place & easy to get in and out of. The newer sites have crushed asphalt which needs to be packed, the older ones have caliche. Walking around on the crushed asphalt gets black rocks in your shoes. I would reccommend the older as not to track in the black tar covered rocks in. Overall a very clean place with friendly owner. We just pulled in late & out early the next morning, but wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly new park but is well laid out with good size sites. The rate for 50 amps is $28. The laundry has two washers and two dryers which are brand new and work perfectly. The manager is very nice and was helpful with local directions. The park rules are very simple but we noticed some of our fellow travelers are still inconsiderate and do not pick up after their pets. These kind of pet owners make it difficult for those who do take care and will eventually cause parks to refuse pets. The short road in from the highway is a little narrow but in good shape. We gave this park a 8 plus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a young park and a work in progress. The manager is very friendly. The sites are gravel and extremely long with a grassy area in between. Not a lot of shade yet, the trees are very small. The laundry is 2 and 2 and very clean as are the 2 restrooms/shower rooms. There are additional sites that are being put in as well as internet. We had no problem getting our satellite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really spacious and clean, a snap to get in and out of your very long and level space. Short access road from I-20 very narrow but short, pause on top of the bridge before proceeding to make sure no one is coming as there is no way two rigs could pass each other on the road. Friendly and helpful owner, clean baths, quiet. Very good overnighter or if visiting Abilene for short period. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good overnight park or someplace to stay for a few days if stopping in Albilene. But it is definitely not a destination park. Don't be looking for the club house, pool, or Jacuzzi. It's basically just an open field. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed overnight in a 50Amp pull-through site. Plenty of room (length and width, my total rig is about 65 ft. long, including towd) - about 3 times what you normally see in campgrounds - a really large site. Sites are spread out, with lots of room to maneuver. Gravel sites, gravel roads, a bit of grass here and there, mesquite trees. 70 psi water pressure. Good, clear views to satellites in the south. Hot as hot can be at this time of year. I would stay overnight here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is only about a year old and is very much in the process of being developed. The cable is in the ground but at the moment only about 3 stations were available from the antenna. The sites were very long and pretty wide, (about 40x100)and access roads in the park were OK. The park is about 1000' from I-20 (noise was no problem) and the last couple hundred feet of that road is pretty much like a washboard but going slow takes care of that. We only stayed overnight and at the moment that is the best purpose for the park. They have a lot of plans for the next 10 years and I am sure it will be a nice park some day. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Dyess AFB just opened their FamCamp last summer. They have 18 concrete pads that are approximately 45' long and very wide. Sites are nicely spaced with about 20' of grass between each one. All roads are paved and it's easy in/out. Each site has full hookups including cable. When I checked in, I was told the cable was out at my site but I think it was just a temp thing. Each site has a picnic table and outdoor grill. There is ample parking and light at night, plus you are on the base with other military & retirees so security is no concern. WiFi worked sporadically, but I got a great signal on my Verizon WiFi. ATT showed 3/5 bars & LTE signal. The camp has a small pay laundry and small shower/bathroom facility. They do take reservations, but the site I was told to go to on the phone was occupied. Luckily, there were two open sites so I got one. I don't think they have tight control on reservations versus available spots and folks are used to just pulling into any open spot at FamCamps. There are 6 concrete pads adjacent to the camp that I presume they use for dry camping overflow. I thought $35 a night was pretty steep given they have no other amenities like playground, pool, dog walk, propane, or camp store. But their weekly rate of $130 seemed fair if you are staying that long. I rated the park lower due to high price and lack of amenities compared to other camps in that price range. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is OK for an overnight stop, but it has no amenities. It's just a parking lot with hookups. A deposit is required for the key to the sewer and electricity. Although the VFW staff person was friendly, she did not direct me to the correct location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Above rate is for "temporary overflow" water & electric; full hookups are $25. Weekly and monthly rates also. Main RV park is on north side of building. 5 water & 50amp electric hookups are along south side of parking south of the building. Check-in at Canteen inside front door. Decent location. We definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Park is owned by the VFW post and is open to all VFW members, active duty; and reserve and retired military. This park is very clean and located across the street from Dyess Air Force Base Main Gate. Check-in is through the canteen. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
