We stayed one night while passing through (going from Texas to Colorado). We usually stay at a different park in Lamar but decided to try this one since I heard it was under new ownership. Wow - what a mistake. First of all, the service was horrible. The kid (and I do mean kid - only about 13 years old) took my money and said OK - find a place and help yourself. I asked if could tell me which sites were empty so before I started driving around looking for one and he said he didn't know. I could see through the window that it was fairly full (not sure why). So I drove around looking for a site. The sites that were open were soggy wet and the water had been standing for a while so there is definitely a drainage problem. Plus the area smelled like sewer. (Yes, it is a horse motel, and that is a totally different smell.) The sites are very short and very close together. Finally it appeared they had installed new power pedestals and sewer hookups - kudos to them. The power pedestals were fine - no issues. However the sewer hookups are about 9 inches above the dirt. The sewer hookup on my RV is fairly low and near the front of my rig. Since my site was unlevel I had lowered the front of my rig to even it up. That made the sewer hookup almost uphill. Needless to say I didn't get my tanks dumped well before I left. We will NOT stay there again. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Ahh nothing - this is Lamar Colorado there is nothing to do there - just pass through quickly.

Sites very wet, lots of standing moldy smelly water. It was not rain water. Sites were large enough for our 41 ft motorhome and tow vehicle without unhooking. Water pressure and 50 amp worked fine. Did not put jacks down because of muddy conditions. Probably won't stop here again. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Sites are not well maintained. Some of the hookup areas have standing water, some of it mossy. Few level sites. Lots of flies. Have stayed here before and was pleased. I won't be coming back.

Very friendly staff. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Nor that much to look at but its convenient for passing through. Level sites, functioning hookups. Roads gravel and not too rough. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Couldn't get wifi to work but had a good Verizon signal so didn't bother. When the wind is right you can definitely tell what the big economic activity is. I think its a bit pricey for what you get with a perfectly good Walmart in town (I gotta get an inverter for this new residential refrigerator).

This park is easy to find. The owners very nice and help you to your site. Everything is clean and it was quiet. Pads are level gray rocks and there is plenty of room for any size camper. There is a swimming pool. There were no horses in the barns that night. There are restaurants about one mile away on Hwy. 50. We would stay here again.

Good wifi, very friendly staff, nice pool, nice horse barn with runs, level pull through sites but fairly short. Surrounded by feedlots, but this whole area is feedlots. Good overnight stay. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

My comments are similar to the ones already posted except that on our departure day the wind shifted to the North West and brought the odor of a cattle feed lot next door into the park. For a one night pass through it was OK, but I wouldn't want to have an extended stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, but I thought that having a beauty salon in the office was weird.

This is a former KOA campground. New owners are slowly making improvements. Bathrooms were clean but in the process of being remodeled when we were there. Sites are level and all were pull through sites. As one reviewer commented they are a bit short so if you are pulling a vehicle you may need to disconnect. We have a 36' motorhome and pull a car and found that to be the case. Park was clean, quiet and a good choice for overnight. There is a large 24/hr. Travel Plaza about 1 mile from the park where you can get fuel and other supplies. We paid $35/night, which included Good Sams discount. This was the posted rate so I assume rates have been raised for the season compared to the rates listed by previous reviewers. We would stay here again when passing through.

This park was pretty close to the highway. We parked in space 43 way in the back corner and did not hear much highway noise. Most of the spaces are pull-through. $22 with a Good Sam card. Everything we used worked okay. There was dog waste everywhere. You had to be very careful about where you stepped. There is a horse barn where you can park your horse for the night. I had to do some light levelling since the space tilted slightly toward the front. From the shape and design of the office, it looks like it could have been a KOA many years ago. A very nice lady checked us in. If I was passing this way again and needed a one-nighter I would probably stay here again. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Travel Trailer.

On a sliding scale,for this region, this park could be a 9 or 10. Great friendly folks and your basic Mom and Pop park. If you are 45' and do not disconnect the tow you will be out into the roadway behind you; BUT THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM, just tell the nice people you are big and they will assign you a sight where also using the roadway is just fine. Gravel roads and sights are level, wide, no tree or maneuvering problems. The hook-ups appear to be just recently up-dated and the electric, water and sewer are all modern. Our 24 ton, 4 slide bus was very happy here. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Pleasant, small park, just Northwest of town. Plenty of grassy areas for dogs, nice pool area, friendly staff, not much shade. Gravel drives and sites. Utilities worked well. Would stay again. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four nights on our way to Nebraska. It is a nice cozy quiet small campground with a very friendly and helpful staff. We did not use the Wi-Fi. The laundry room was clean and everything worked well. Plenty of nice grassy area to walk the dog. Water and electricity worked well. Enjoyed the resident mules and horse. A hair saloon on premises was very convenient. Will definitely stop here again when in the area. Rate reflects Good Sams full hook up.

We stopped here on the way to Colorado. Nice clean park, friendly staff, the pull-through was good for about 58' length. There had been lots of rain yet the gravel and grass did a good job. Will stay here again. The rate reflects Good Sam and only electricity. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

This is our fourth year to stop at this CG. It has always been a good place to stop, at least I thought it was. But a new owner has taken over and has a lot to learn. When we arrived at 3:30, the office was closed and a note said to pick a site, which we did. It was almost dark when the owner finally was in the office. The Wi-Fi did not work at our rig and the grounds needed grooming. The showers were OK, but could be better. I hate to knock a CG, but this new owner better shape it up.
