3 Parks near Childress, Texas
Jun 2015 - $15.00
We stayed here a few years ago and found it a decent place for a short stay, so we decided to use it again as an overnight on our way west. One change since we were here last is they have 50amp power now! There are five sites, and it looks like four of them are fully functional. Electric and water only - no sewer hook-up, and I don't think there's a dump station here. But they have a 3-day maximum so other than having to haul it all with you to the next place, it's not a problem. No shade at sites but nice with grass and picnic tables on concrete platforms. It is part of a city park, which is very nice with small lake and paved path around it. Evidently good for fishing! We would definitely stay here again if on the route. Easy entry from the 287, turning north onto Commerce, and straight into Fair Park (watch the dip in intersection). Turn right before you get to the building in front of you - the sites are all the way over on the right (look for the picnic tables, between ball park and the lake). The sites are fairly close together, but you are likely to be the only camper here, so no problem! - CarrieBearie

Coming into town on 287 turn north on Commerce. You'll see the entrance to the city park; go through the gate, bear to the right, go to the end and you'll see the RV sites. Sites aren't huge but we had space for our rig, car and both slides with no problem. 4 of the 5 sites had working electricity and water (the water faucets looked a little scary and we used our own water), and all had nice picnic tables on concrete slabs. Clean and well maintained - no trash laying around and grass was cut. No sewer hookup or dump station or the rating would be higher. Close to a very pretty little lake with lighted walking trails circling the lake - nice place to walk or sit out had the weather been cooler. Quiet except for the occasional train whistle. Good for a night or two. Rate is $15 on the honor system. - Jeepman Texas

Nothing fancy, and yes, only 2 out of the 5 sites looked to have functioning hook-ups, and only 30 amps and no sewer or dump station. But all that said, we were the only ones there (except for one night, and our neighbors were a couple sites away), and we enjoyed our two-night stay! The "campground" is way over to the right when you go through the main entrance to Fair Park (the other entrance, closer to the campground part, was under construction when we were there). And it is only steps away from their pretty little lake that you can walk around. It's a nice and popular park. My husband really liked the BBQ ribs at Jaksons. We both liked the Golden Chick and DQ! There's a WalMart in town too. - CarrieBearie

Definitely a bare bones, no amenities park. Only 3 sites available for transients; the others appear to be permanent residents. Better than overnighting at Walmart. Full hookups and slides can be deployed. Pull through site accommodated our motorhome and tow dolly. We felt safe, and except for a garbage truck at 5AM emptying the dumpster, we were undisturbed. We will stay here again if in the area. - knipp4la

A very low end place. I won't even describe it as a campground. I can't believe Best Western would allow such a place to exist. Only three sites available and they were covered with trash and debris. The few other sites were occupied by run down permanent campers. The promised WiFi did not exist. A scary place to stay. We would never consider staying there again. - Bill In Florida

The sites are level but the spaces are narrow and would be very close if the small park was full. Access is just OK and with a big rig it may take a bit of planning. Length was OK for a 45 ft MH and we parked our toad in the adjacent motel parking area. Wi-Fi worked from the adjacent motel but was a little slow but free. We were entitled to the Best Western free motel breakfast which was a short walk away. There is also another brand new park across the street just opened for $25 a night. - run2

This is a really nice basic park. it is clean, well maintained and easy to access. It has both 30 and 50A service at most sites. It has not turned into a"man-camp" as most of the oil patch campgrounds have. I have used this park 2 - 3 times a year for the last 4 years and have nothing negative to say about it... We will continue to stop there in our travels across northern Texas, down 287.... - John and Vikki

First impression - quiet, set back from road, well cared for.
Tasks handled smoothly - Registration by phone by a well-spoken person.
Site plainly marked for us to easily find if we arrived when office was closed.
Onsite handyman adjusted the power pedestal for us.
Easy set up.
They mentioned a train would sound its horn as it passed a nearby crossing but we didn't hear it. - AIRSTREAM1165

We stay one night going through Texas. It is very clean and well kept. Old Cotten gin was neat to see. Very nice and friendly lady. Looked like it was used mainly as a stop for one night, kind of park and was glad to have it. Gravel roads and spots, but not bad. Train does go through and blows horn but not an issue. We do keep a fan on for noise. Small pool but we didn't use it. We would stop while traveling again. - Pam_Ricky
