Basic park, really just a place to stay. Gravel roads and pads. Rudimentary but adequate laundry though expensive. All sites have a good satellite shot. Wi-Fi usually worked, but afternoons and evenings bogged down. Many long term residents. Our price is a multi-day discount, which we found to be good. We might stay here again. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you go to Frontier Texas in Abilene. The museum there is state of the art, interactive, and extremely well done.

Abilene Texas is in the middle of nowhere. And, this RV park just East of town is a good place to stop over for a day or two. It is close to I 20 but not right on top of the hiway so road noise is light to none, depending on wind direction. A former reviewer mentioned the rough access road back to the park. It has been smoothed and is no problem. The park offers full hookups with the longest pullthrough sites we've ever seen! Sites are level and spacious with grass in between and lovely pepper trees that are a bit taller than your rig on each side of the site. Hookups are good - we have 50 AMP. Water pressure is 80 lbs so park recommends you have a water regulator. WiFI is very good. No cable TV but a number of over the air TV channels. No pool. Shower/Laundry House - two separate potty rooms and two separate shower rooms. Plus two washers and two dryers. Everything looks nice and clean. Previous reviewer mentioned many long term worker RV's. About a year ago the U.S. oil industry went bust - so while we are here Nov. 1st, the park is only about 25% full and there are mostly long term rigs but they all look nice and the sites are all tidy. This is definitely not someplace you want to be in summer but for Fall and Spring, the dessert is very pretty. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped by KOA, which was packed with permanents, so tried this place. We were fortunate it turned out that way. It's a few miles north of I20 which limited noise. There was shade and each spot was long, roomy, grass and small trees. A lot of room to maneuver and park any size motorhome with tow.
It states they don't have cable but we picked up 19 HD channels.
We would stay here again. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This place was a real dust bowl with a lot of permanent residences. The park was very remote and no sodas, snacks, grocery items. Unpaved roads, gravel pads. I believe this park was one of the highest rated in Abilene. If that's the case, figure out another town to stay in. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The road in is very rough but it is not far off of I20. Very accessible to Abilene. The lots are gravel but level and very long. There had been a lot of rain so some water laying. There are a lot of long term rentals but they were nice. I did not use the laundry but did go check on the availability. There were two washers and dryers. The washers cost $1.75 which I felt was too costly. Overall the park was good. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites are long term rentals, but all RV's are in good shape and sites are orderly. This park may have the longest pull thrus on the planet. All are 100 feet or longer. Site 22 measured 142 feet in length. Very convenient to Abilene, 1/2 mile off a very bad road from I-20. Quiet with minimal highway and train noise. Sewer hook ups are about 1 foot high which makes draining tanks a slow process. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park 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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

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 at Buck Creek RV Park 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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 at Buck Creek RV Park 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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are pretty level and plenty long. Bathrooms were useable but needed cleaning. Showers were pretty clean and water was hot. Washers and dryers are in the same building as restrooms. Electric worked well. The overnight temperature was below freezing so we did not hook up to the water. The signage to the park was good as was the road to the park and it was far enough to keep the highway noise out. It is basically a gravel lot with rv pull through sites, fine for a quiet overnight just not a "destination" park. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park 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 at Buck Creek RV Park 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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
