We pulled in to Picketts very early one day to avoid the high winds. Welcoming greeting at the gate and guidance to park; friendly, efficient check-in with lots of information about next door restaurant, local groceries, etc. All gravel park with some shade, pull-through and back-in sites, all with full hook-ups.
We backed in at the back of the park; sites would be VERY close if the park had been full. As it was, it felt spacious and we had beautiful, large, rustling trees, a babbling creek and a peaceful view out the back window.
The Internet is strong, cable good. Laundry is immaculate as are restrooms --- complete with BATHTUBS!! There is a small book exchange available, too.
All in all, a lovely haven from the wind, friendly, helpful managers. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

New owners and new management at this park. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are clean and well maintained. There are several long pull-throughs if you don't want to unhitch. There are also about 10 back-in sites next to the trees and creek. There is some noise from the store next door, but it is not disruptive. The new manager is building up a small book exchange near the laundry room. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The Alamo Truck Stop is closed. Diesel is available at the Sinclair in Alamo which has truck/big rig pumps. Diesel is also available at the Shell station in Ash Springs.
If you are a geocacher, then this is the place to be! There are thousands of geocaches close by on the Extraterrestrial Hwy and surrounding area. This is a clean, well run park. The managers are new so old complaints are no longer relevant. Very nice, helpful people. Sites are gravel and level. Be aware of possible electrical problems, as we found no ground at our site but were quickly moved to another with good 50 amp service. The surrounding mountains and green valley are beautiful. This is definitely a spot to return to. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Pros: This is a very clean park with level sites. The Wi-Fi is better than most we have been in. Cons: The managers (dog owners) seem to hate other pets. We were scolded about making sure that our dog did not relieve herself on the property of the park. We were suppose to make sure that the dog was off property and behind the fence first. One of our group was taking her dog off property when the dog had to take a leak while still on property. She was scolded about allowing her dog to desecrate the grounds. The sites are very narrow and while it was nice to have our group parked next to each other my bay doors would hit the slide out of the next RV if I opened it all the way. We were warned about excessive water pressure so we used a pressure regulator. The problem was that if we turned on the water, there was an underground leak in their system that caused our meeting area to flood. When I mentioned this to the manager, I was told that the owner would not authorize repairs. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This park is not fancy; however, it is a good spot to stop and rest after a few long days on the road. The lots are level and it has easy access. The hosts are very friendly and the town is quiet. We received a 50% discount for staying for a second day. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean park with level sites. The owners were very considerate and kind. We were led to our site, and he assisted my husband getting pulled in. The wifi is better than most we have been in. Someone had posted this was an RV park with lots of garbage from the permanent residents, but that isn't so. Maybe they were in a different park? We would stay here again on our travels. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Long, level, gravel sites, only one or two with shade. Easy in/out for big rigs. One block off the highway, very convenient for an overnight when in this area. Friendly staff. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.
Perfectly level sites. Wide pull thrus with plenty of maneuvering room. Friendly staff. Propane available. Three sewer hookups per site. front, middle and back. Good cable, 48 channels. Water pressure great, no regulator needed. Would stay here again. Great restaurant/bakery 2 miles north of town called Windmill Ridge. Fuel and post office close by. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of those parks that are in the middle of nowhere by the side of the road. Lots of permanent residents and junk all over. Dogs running loose. There just isn't anything here but it could work in a pinch at the end of a long day. Not really a good place to stay. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.
What can I say? You are in the middle of nowhere and it's about the only game in town. The good things: (1) new, nice, and clean restrooms and showers; (2) free cable with plenty of channels; (3) free WiFi that actually works, is usable, and is fast; and (3) friendly and helpful owners. The bad thing: (1) the ambiance here is zero (close side-by-side gravel sites.....this not a place where you want to sit out under your awning and take in the view), and (2) lots of permanent residents ringing four sides of the park, with the usual issues (e.g., old trailers, way too much "stuff"in the yard. loose dogs, etc.) Not certain I'd stay here again. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much to look at park but for an overnight after driving 585 miles it was just what I needed. Friendly check in, had to ask if they took Good Sam to get my discount, they did so that was a plus. A list of the cable TV channels would have been nice and I suggested that. Gas station and Mexican restaurant close by for the road-weary. Quiet place to rest your head for the night. I would stay again. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for two days and thought it was quite over-priced for what you got. It was all soft gravel with side-by-side hook-ups and the pull throughs were actually two back-to-back back-ins. They were only pull throughs when both ends were empty. Restrooms and showers were clean but there is only two rooms. Laundry area was very cramped with some machines in a garden shed. Would only stay here again if the price was more reasonable. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Motorhome.
Manager greeted us as soon as we pulled in. Very friendly and helpful. Even though the park was not in our new Passport America Book, they gave us the Passport rate. New owner/management. Cable TV is coming. Restrooms and showers are in the works. Level sites all gravel. Next door to the grocery store in town. We camped at Picketts RV Park (formerly Alamo RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.
