HUGE speed bumps. Impossible to go around them. Our boat trailer bottoms out going over them. - RoadRoller
Only stayed in this park three days. Trashy mobile homes are mixed in with RV sites. Dogs constantly barking, chasing walkers and cars. Stayed a month here several years ago. Much quieter then. - RoadRoller
We have stayed at just about every RV Park in Del Rio over the last 8 years. This park is not as fancy as others, but everyone is friendly, and neighbors get to know each other. Although we are only here for 7 or 8 nights, there have been 2 all you can eat breakfasts, a free fish fry, a pot luck dinner tonight, and games each evening. This will be our park of choice in the future. The two problems I have are that they are in the current Escapees Campground book at 15% off but only give a 10% discount, regardless of what card you have. Also, the daily price with a discount is lower than the weekly rate to which discounts don't apply. The second is that it is almost impossible to get reservations. Apparently, only one employee knows how to use the computer system. We had a group and wanted sites together because this area has several fishing tournaments and some parks sell out, so we wanted to be sure we had reservations. For what it is worth, the owner in not on site or local. BUT, we will do everything we can to use this park next year now that we know who to talk to about reservations. - johnwadams
This is your basic federal western CG without water and with pit toilets. A mile or so in on a dusty dirt road. Best campsite is #1 a pull-through on your left. It is the only one with a shade tree but be careful, the trees are tight. The rest of the CG is open with picnic tables under a shelter roof without walls. The bathrooms were clean but there are no services, no water, and no dump station. The place is quiet and not crowded. The rate we paid is really $2 with the federal senior card. Nice place for a day or two. If the water comes up again it could be very pleasant for and extended stay. Verizion MiFi worked OK with a roaming network. Roads and sites are gravel/dust. After all this is west Texas. - pumper9x9
This was a very clean campground with level sites. Each site has a picnic table under a cover. There are no connections but a dump site a few miles up the road. The fresh water at the dump site was out of order while we were there but we always travel with a full tank so that wasn't an issue. The sites at one time were near the water but the lake is 37 feet low and there is no water within sight. You have to travel down a graded dirt road for about a mile to get to the campground. We would stay here again if the water level returns. - dandg
Nice primitive campground on a beautiful lake.No hookups,you need solar or generator power.Close to Del Rio and our favorite winery, Val Verde winery. - yankeeflyer1

$2 per night was the 50% discount for a primitive site at the 277N campground using the Golden Age Passport. Dirt/gravel sites are mostly level. Each site has a covered concrete pad with a picnic table and BBQ grill. Pit toilets are available but nothing else. Heavy but low vegetation surrounds the campground and the view is almost endless. If it’s a clear night, the sky really lights up with all the stars. There are many types of water birds around the Amistad Reservoir and boaters are seen quite frequently. If you like hiking/biking there are trails within the park and roadways outside the park. Fishing/boating/water skiing/SCUBA diving are all available on the Amistad Reservoir. Spacing between the sites is very generous. The NRA is W of Del Rio proper and there are many conveniences available in the small town. There is no Wi-Fi in the campground but we received three bars 4G on our AT&T cell phone which we used as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Our Millenicom jetpack received only a couple bars of 1X which allowed for very slow Wi-Fi. We received one Spanish OTA TV station. - DD Rolling Ranch

I did not camp here this time. On Dec.12 the campground had many campers there camping. It apparently is now open again. It used to be my preference in Del Rio before it closed. - washman
This was a very nice campground but it is closed. evidently the owner has declared bankruptcy. - User2209
We were surprised to find a new park on this highway. Nice level sites and concrete pads make it a plus for us. The price was right for an overnight stay. The laundry room and bathrooms were very clean. The owner would like to put in wi-fi at a later date. We were very happy with this no frills campground. We will be back. - alfauser2
This was a stop over spot between San Antonio and Big Bend. We spent 4 nights there. The sites are wide and level and the staff are very friendly. One night a week, there is a campground dinner/entertainment for a fee which was nice. Two issues: noise from the highway which the campground can't control with lots of road construction in the area. Other issue is why we won't give it a score of 10: no picnic table and no grill.
Why campgrounds aren't routinely providing these anymore is beyond us! - davis0056
Arrived after hours but easy to find an empty site, paid next morning. Site was large enough for 45 coach with toad. Easy in and out. A bit of noise from nearby highway but to be expected. Roads were an asphalt type of material so they were not dusty. A number of trees on site. Cable and wifi adequate. Would stay again. - Watt4
What a nice treat to find this park. Friendly staff. Large gravel sites, pull throughs with good utilities. Good cable. Work out room, & laundry. Lots of space to walk and let dogs run. Not crowded when we were here. You can hear traffic noise, but not too close. Good value. - padre44
This is a very unattractive park, and with permanent residents living in older, poorly maintained trailers. There is brush and material piled along the borders, and just a generally unkempt appearance of the whole facility. On the other hand, the park is is easy to get into, and the water, electric and sewer hook-ups work, so as a place for an overnight stay it works. - hoppytoad
Essentially a very dirty dirt parking lot with hookups. Restrooms looked as though they had not been cleaned in weeks. Only one shower/stall per restroom. Did not look in the laundry area. Lots of long term campers and the stuff that goes with them. Appears very little is being done to repair anything that needs repairing. - pablol
Owner very helpful. Verizon worked great. Nice friendly little saloon adjoins CG. Shopping nearby, good for extended stays. - retiredgeezer
We really enjoyed staying here. First of all, the sites are all huge because it used to be a mobile home park. Our site was even more huge - the largest I have ever had in an RV park. The park itself is well kept up and clean, its primary feature being a big red barn that makes itself right at home on the edge of fields and farmland.
The laundry waiting room is super cozy, although the place could use a few more machines. Payment is done through cash envelopes, so you don't need quarters, but it is pricey at $5 for a wash and dry (total).
It's a little tricky getting to the park if you have a tall rig because stoplights in the cute downtown section of Del Rio can be a bit low. Call ahead when you're close to arriving, and the park owner will give you a better route.
We were glad we stayed in town rather than out towards the Reservoir because we felt it gave us a chance to see and explore the historic part of Del Rio, rather than just the new construction on the north side of town.
The staff was hands-off but very helpful and nice. It's a quiet park, and we'd definitely stay again. - Ardent Camper
We only stayed here two nights on our way to Big Bend National Park. The RV park is a little out of the way in a residential area, whereas most others in the area are right off the highway. We prefer the privacy and quiet, so this worked very well for us, and the residential area offered plenty of places to walk our dogs. The RV park is very pretty, with lots of trees and grass. Campsites are pretty large, have concrete patios (formerly mobile home pads), picnic tables, and some sites have privacy fences. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the neighbors we met were nice. The main road into the park is closed for construction, so the owner met us in town and guided us in since our GPS would take us the wrong way. Water pressure was very high, so be sure to use a water regulator. Cable TV is available but the hookup was far back in the site and our cable wasn't long enough to reach. There is WiFi available but we couldn't receive it from our site near the front of the park. We'd definitely stay here again, hopefully for a longer visit. - LifeRebooted
This park is real hidden gem. Lots of shade trees. Call and they will escort you in. From our site at edge of park we watched herds of deer in pasture in the afternoons and evenings. Huge site had plenty of room for fifth wheel and boat. We walk and sometimes bike the quiet tree lined streets to the little HEB store. Sites are hard with grass and pea-gravel. City water comes from springs at the golf course in town. House washer/dryers have pay envelopes $2/$3 for checks or cash on Honor system. Some long-term campers work at Air Force Base or hospital. We will be back again! - catnapper
This was a 5 nights stay for us. Very dirty men's room, toilets and showers in disrepair. Sites turned into mud bogs after rain storms. - clamb
This park appears to be filled with mostly long termers. The WiFi worked better than in most places. The sites are pretty beat up, broken service boxes seem to be the norm. The site was level. Lots of small trash in the site. OK for one night. - terrytckl
Rate reflects the Passbook America discount. The folks in the park, both employees and "winter Texans" were friendly, and the site for the trailer was large and an easy pull thru. Our only complaint about the park was the restrooms and showers. While the sinks and toilets were clean, the floors did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time. The shower heads almost worked. They were so old, and the shower stall did not appear to have been cleaned in a long, long time. My wife refused to use them. We would not return to this park. - living large
Small older park. Staff very friendly. Not really suited to Big Rigs. Only a few (6) big sites so call ahead. Sites and turning tight. They had to use a ladder and pole to hold up overhead cables. If you are not running a Big Rig and want a friendly nice park this is the one. Wi-Fi is lighting fast. Good 50 Amp. - TedandJan
We spent 3 winter months here. It is not a fancy campground, but they have everything you need. The laundry room is very clean, and the machines are new. The pot luck dinners on Friday night are terrific. The staff and owners could not be any friendlier. It is close to town, Wal-Mart, restaurants, etc. The sites are not very wide, and not very level. The water pressure is poor. Overhaul it is a pretty good place to stay. - bsnmobs
Although we stayed for a month we would have to say this was not the best choice in Del Rio. The Friday night "Pot Luck" dinners are enjoyable and the owners was nice, though there is one lady who works the front desk three days a week is a real pill. Even with her and the fact the park needs some major upgrades (interior roads, space leveling and general improvements) to better accept today's larger RV's with slides, we would probably stop here again. - Twotravelers
The manager is very friendly. The park is exceptionally clean. You can see the lake from the RV Park. The lake is way down right now. They also rent mobile home lots. Rabbits are everywhere! It is conveniently located about 8 miles from town. I highly recommend this RV Park. - Just B
Park is located 6-7 miles north of Del Rio, Texas on U.S. Highway 90. This is a mobile home and RV park with what appears to be quite a few long term RVs parked. Only stayed one night. Had one minor problem. After checking in, paying and assigned a space, we left to visit Langtry, TX (Judge Roy Bean's Bar & Home, stopped on way back for dinner and when arriving back at RV park our space was occupied. Complained to management and they said that they thought we left and assigned the space to someone else. We ended up in a cramped space stuck in between 2 travel trailers that appeared to be semi-permanent guests. This is the first time we have ever been assigned a space and paid for it to have it rented out from under us. They did offer to refund our money, but given it was after 6pm we took what was available. Most likely will not return to this park. There are numerous parks in the area. - Bonadventures
