Horrible dust cloud will surround you immediately after turning into park. Dogs will bring burrs into coach. No grass - just weeds and mesquite trees. Good utilities and Internet and long pull-throughs. We stay here when visiting kids in Abilene but can't wait for new park to open just a few miles west on I-20. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times for an overnight. The park is not fancy but it serves it's purpose. Good hookups, long, level spaces and an efficient staff to name a few things. The roads and sites are gravel. I looked into the laundry this time and it was clean. The office is very frequently not open when we arrive but since I make my reservations online and am pre-paid, our name is on the map posted at the office door with our space. Without reservations just pay when you come in and pick an open spot. I like this park because it is only a short way off I-40 and it's quiet. Other parks are right on the freeway. Good Verizon cell and data services including my air card. A short drive to shopping and other amenities. It's easy to drive through the park in our big rig and I can walk the dog around the perimeter. We will continue to come back here when we come through Abilene. I rated it as I did because there are no extra amenities like a pool etc. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a great surprise to find this nice park just outside of Abilene! The sites are huge - 150 ft feet long, all pull-through, with 50 amp service. Nice grass on each lot. Very quiet and neat and clean. The road here from I-20 must have been improved since previous reviews because it is smooth & perfect for our 45' motorhome with tow. We definitely have no complaints about this park! We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground so that we could explore Abilene. The sites were gravel and our heavy motorhome sank somewhat. Since it was a rainy spring our site had plenty of grass that desperately needed to be mowed. We tried to sit outside but the tall grass was damp and buggy and we didn't last long. There is no patio area, cover, BBQ, etc. provided. This is an OK spot for overnight but not a place to spend a week. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park easily accessible from interstate. Country setting. Long, straight, level sites, easy to get into. Few trees scattered around the park. Very windy during our stay and quite dusty as a result. Restrooms, showers and laundry all together in a little building: the only permanent structure in the park other than a tiny building for check-in (not manned on a routine basis). We had made a reservation and found the number for our assigned site on a list on the door. Several long term residents scattered throughout the park. Advertised as having the longest pull-through sites in Abilene! Would return. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

While you are in Abilene, visit Frontier Texas: an interactive history museum, reminiscent of the TV show "How the West Was Won."

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.

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.

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.
