We spent a week in Alpine at The Lost Alaskan RV Park and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, the park was very clean and well-maintained. Water pressure was the best we've had in any park. The location is superb - close to The city center and well within driving distance of Fort Davis and Marfa. This was one of the nicest parks we've stayed in and definitely plan to go back. Nice dog park, pool, and small store. Some grassy areas near the front were full of grass burrs, so don't walk your dogs there. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were told there were no discounts offered during March when we were there due to spring break and other events The power is steady, water connections are below ground and a little difficult to use. Water pressure did not seem high, but we used a regulator anyway. They do offer cable TV and internet. The internet did not work at all the 3 days we were there. When queried about it the office said 'they had been having problems with it'. Verizon phone and wifi work very well here. Some road noise from the highway, but not bothersome. Did not use restrooms, but their adult social room looked clean and nice. The washers worked ok, $1.50, dryers did not work well at all, $1.25 but it usually took 2 or 3 cycles to dry a regular load. Do not think the pool was open. There are several long terms residents here and many workers. Some truck noise early in the morning as they leave for work. Sites are level, gravel. There is dirt and dead grass between sites, not sure when they've gotten rain last. There is a picnic table at each site, brick and concrete. Our biggest complaint would be dogs. There are an unusual numbers of dogs in this park. After the office closes, it appears the leash rule is just a suggestion. Several large dog regularly barking though out the evening at every person who walks or drives by. Speed limit, as in many places, is only for some. We were a little disappointed after seeing the high reviews this park gets. The staff was very friendly and helpful on local matters and information. The park is ok for a couple of days and checking out the local area. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive the 118/166/17 loop thru the area, beautiful drive. Visit Fort Davis, both the NHS and the state park are very nice. Several pull offs in the area for photos and viewing. In Alpine, visit the Museum of The Big Bend. Free museum on the Sul Ross campus, tells the story of the Big Bend area. If you need a vet, recommend the Alpine Small Animal Hospital just north of the park, Dr Mary Dodson. Very nice.

Pros: Quiet, well-kept park. Sites are large enough for the biggest rigs. Water pressure is regulated at 40-50 lbs. and works quite well. Cons: WiFi: when it works, it is extremely slow. Laundry: either washers don't spin properly or the dryers are weak. We had to run the dryers twice and apparently this is known to the park management. The main showers and laundry are centrally located which encourages people to walk through other's sites to get to them. Other: When I called to make the reservation, I specifically asked for confirmation via email or text and was told it would be sent "shortly". I never got it. When I called the following day to confirm I asked again for confirmation via email or text, which I never received. I sent a request for confirmation on their website contact form and never received a reply. The moral of the story seems to be that their communication skills need improvement. The park also blacks out the month of March regarding the Good Sam discount. This is not allowed by Good Sam per their agreement with the park. So-called "Premium" sites cost more but differ from regular sites by having a cement sidewalk and patio and a 3-foot fence along the side. They are not any bigger. Paying extra for a premium site is definitely not worth it. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Lost Alaskan for a week and it is a just okay park. It is not nearly as nice as it was a few years ago and is fast becoming yet another run down trailer park instead of a nice RV Park. A good guess would be 30% of the sites have people living on them full time along with an accumulation of junk and several of the full time RV's can easily be classified as junk. The dust in the park is awful and no money is being spent on improvements. The sites are covered with large rocks and most are very uneven. Many of the sites also have trees that need trimming badly because they rub the RV's and many camper slides are actually in the trees. All lanes in the park also have huge speed bumps which are very annoying and unnecessary. The bathrooms are usually okay but the shower controls in the mens unit are plumbed where the hot and cold water control is reversed and are near impossible to turn on because they are worn out. The park also apparently has no rules about vicious dogs because we saw several German Shepards and Doberman Pincers. It is clear that the owners are spending their profit instead of applying some of the funds toward park improvements. The week we were there the wind blew constantly along with the dirt. Now the park will have new rules for obtaining a site in 2019 during the Cowboy Poetry Gathering event. They are forcing everyone to call and beg for a site with no regard for their loyal customers. I say no thanks and will go elsewhere. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with big sites. There is no grass between the sites but that is typical of West Texas this time of year. The pool and playground are nice. The park is just outside of town so it is very quiet but also convenient to town. Easy access with wide roads with easy hookups. It is the best in town and if we return to the area will stay here again. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed are stay in Alpine. McDonald Observatory has a great 3 hour tour and is highly recommend. Big Bend Museum is worth the visit and is free. The best lunch on this trip was at Reata, the service and food was exceptional. The beer at Big Bend Brewery was a great experience.

Great place to stay. Super friendly hosts who make you feel very welcome and appreciated. Nice, long, wide sites, mine was nice and level. Very quiet and dark at night, a peaceful setting. Just a few minutes away from the center of town, with great food, coffee, art, music and shops. I wish I had stayed longer and will definitely be back.

Probably one the best RV parks in the area. Friendly help and escort to your site. All sites are pull through with convenient hook ups including cable TV. Sites are roomy with small funky brick and concrete picnic tables. A few barking dogs but generally a quiet park. Great location to explore all that the Big Bend Area has to offer including funky places like Marfa. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Alpine has everything you might need and a number of food trucks with very good food. The local University Sul Ross has an interesting museum about the history of the area. There is a beautiful scenic drive out of Ft Davis on route 118 to route 166 and back.

Easy in and out with my 42' fifth wheel. Far enough out of town to be quiet, but a short drive in. Sites level/gravel. Spaced out so you don't feel too crowded. Wifi was bad to nonexistent. Cable good. Used the wash rack for my truck($5.00)and trailer($10.00). They have propane, but they charge you for a full bottle no matter how much or little you need. OK if your bottle is empty. Over all a very nice park and would stay here again. Lots to do and see in the area. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful, semi-wooded campground right in heart of Alpine. Staff friendly, esp. the Maine couple!!! Sites large & although gravel, were very level. Good Wifi and cable TV. Would definitely recommend this campground. We spent a week here touring the area and Big Bend NP. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

30 miles from Marfa which is a great town to visit. Alpine is also an interesting town and Visitors Center has a walking & Driving map of the town. Don't miss the Museum of the Big Bend, a free museum on the Sul Ross State University in Alpine. Great eating at Come & Take It BBQ...but get there early before it's all gone. About 100 miles from Big Bend NP, either from Alpine or Marathon, both offering different views

What a great RV park. Called while on road during a spontaneous decision to stay in Alpine, TX, because of its proximity to Big Bend NP. Very friendly reception on the phone with an invitation to "come on down"!! Very friendly staff at check in with an Escapees discount. Detailed instructions by office staff of park rules. Guided to my long, pull thru site with FHU and 50A service with gravel site, grassed patio and permanent concrete picnic table. A long run to sewer connection though. Guide also gives a detailed description of site services and asks for any clarifying questions about park or camp site. Never had that happen at other parks by the guide. My site, C3, was long enough for my 40' Class A towing an 18' car hauler trailer still attached with room for my car in front. Easy to navigate roadways and easy access from main road at entrance. Outside pool and bath house that we didn't take advantage of but they appeared clean and an easy walk from our camp site. I would certainly stay here again when in the area.

We stayed in a pull-thru gravel site that had plenty of room for our 42' 5th wheel and truck. (C13). Looks like the park has a few full timers staying here. The Laundry and Bathrooms/Showers are very nice and clean. You are allowed to wash your vehicles for a small few if need be. The wi-fi isn't good at all, but my cell phone had great coverage. Park is close to 3 towns and there is a lot to see and do in this area. Would stop again. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I really enjoyed my stay at Lost Alaskan RV Park and Alpine and surrounding areas. The park has rock interior roads and campsites. They are long with good spacing. The landscaping is typical West Texas grass; mostly dirt with scrubby and sparse grass. A carpet is recommended, especially if it rains, which it did. The water and electric are at the rear of the sight, and the sewer even farther back, and there is a nice brick and concrete picnic table at the front of the site. The water connection is in a tube sunk into the ground; it is below ground level. You have to get on your hands and knees to connect and turn on; this is really an unacceptable location. Thus the lower rating. The 50 amp breakers have to be unlocked to use. There is no cable, very limited antenna stations, and the wi-fi is not very good. But but the scenery is outstandingly beautiful. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is an example of how a campground should be run. Very well organized. Full friendly instructions from check-in to check-out. Had a separate area to wash your RV at a nominal price which we used. Bike trail to town was right there. The sites were not the largest but it was a stress-free stay.
