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.

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.

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.

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.

We stayed here in February. It was still pretty cold, so they weren't very busy. The sites were plenty big for our 40' 5th wheel and everything worked well. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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

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 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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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 at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
