Gravel area with full hook-ups. Kind of disorganized management but it works. Three entrances make it a bit confusing. Easy walk to downtown. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good place to stay if going to the McDonald Observatory. However, remember this is a small town in west Texas so this is not the ritz. Sites are dirt only. Both full and water/electric hookups for RV are available. Also a tent camping area. As the whole campground is gravel/grass/dirt it is dusty. Our rate was based on a 15% discount for vets. Staff was friendly. Did not evaluate restrooms. Great location, probably the best of all local campgrounds, as it is within walking distance of all of town with the exception of the local grocery store. Good cable TV and wifi was very good. If you have slides, the sites are narrow. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

The owner was not the friendliest person you'll ever meet. Was somewhat upset when I was confirming where he wanted me to park and set up my tent and even felt it necessary to throw an insult at me. But the price was right so let it slide. This is a small, dated park right along the main drag in town. The bathrooms are old and somewhat decrepit, but functional. The tent spot was level and grassy and under a nice shade tree. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Tent.

This is a real experience, almost a throw-back to the 1940's travel park. The owner is reclusive, but once met, is OK.

Let me explain: I did not have a reservation (and the sites were virtually empty, as this place almost appears abandoned.) I rang the doorbell at the screen-door: no answer. Tried again. No answer. Spoke loudly thru the screen (in case mgr was in back room) and almost beside me, sitting in the dark, a loud response "I'm sitting right HERE!"

I asked if there was a campsite avail, and he asked what kind of RV, and how long. I said, "22' Airstream" and he said "HOW LONG?"

Oh, I said, "Two days."

It'll be $24/day! When I was allowed to enter the darkness, I saw from a picture he was a former C130 loadmaster. When I asked about his AF Service: he warmed right up and became sociable.

After that, it was a pleasant stay in a quiet, grassy, small camp. I was so amused by the quaintness. I will stay here next time also. No other campers in this busy time of year. Right in the little downtown area. Good elect/water/sewer, but that's about it.

This place is much more solitary than the crowded state park. I liked it very much. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Entire park needs work. Bathrooms are in terrible shape and do not appear to be regularly cleaned. Noisy at late hours. Strange place. I do not recommend even for 1 night stays. The park is falling apart. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here Memorial weekend. The owner was very nice and I enjoyed our conversation on multiple subjects. He recommended places to eat and visit. The park is clean and neat. The other reviews I read were not good, but I didn't see why they were so bad. The campground is downtown. Walking distance to the drugstore and other sites. We had a very pleasant stay and will stay here again when we come back to this area. Sites were clean, easy to hook up, all utilities work properly. Roads are easy to navigate. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Left two messages trying to get a reservation; finally got the phone answered and a surly "we'll hold a spot for you". We explained we have a 45' Class A with a tow. He said they could accommodate us. Pulled in and found a door to knock on. A voice from a farther window said " find a spot and pull in and I'll find you when I finish my lunch". Dusty roads, no signage, very tight turn with roping blocking off any potential sites. We parked in a driveway to walk to determine any possibility of a site for us. NO WAY! The guy walked up and complained that our trailer moved a rock about a foot. We pulled out and found another campground. We reported how poor the facility is to Passport America. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Older park in the middle of town. OK for the couple of nights we spent there, but other than a place to park not much to offer. Sites were small, but the one next to us was left empty so not overcrowded. Hookups have been upgraded and work well. Machines in the laundry are old and don't work all that well. Price seems high. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Positive things first: Owner is a cool guy and gave us good advice where to go in town. Rates are cheap, WiFi was working excellent and all in all we felt comfortable on this campground. On the more negative side: As someone mentioned before, the park could use some maintenance and a little more attention. Laundry is equipped with quite old machines, bathroom/restroom is a bit shabby and it seems it doesn't get cleaned daily. Also there's only one bathroom for each men and women. And last but not least, the office is open a bit irregularly which can be a problem if you desperately need something - like quarters for the laundry. Bottom line - not my first choice but still ok for a couple of nights if you're looking for an affordable place with wifi and laundry. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Truck Camper.

We just checked out the place and did not stay there, in the middle of town. Tiny tiny pull-throughs, but as we visited there was nobody. People told us they put rigs with one place in between. Still not much of a place to go to, need a lot of attention. Back-ins are next to a gravel road so very dusty at the campground. Place needs a lot of improvement. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

OK park in the middle of town. All dust and dirt, of course there has been no rain for 1 1/2 years, so everything is dirty! Owner was very nice: gave us info on what to do in the area. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Great owner, close to historical downtown and just around the corner from Ft. Davis National Historic site. Nice wide, backin spots with several day pull-through slots. There were some tent sites also. The only negative is the sites and parking were all dirt. Dog owners be aware of random loose dogs through out the town. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This a small shabby run down park in the middle of town. Owner tries to charge you extra for everything. Would not honor the Passport America advertised rates because it was two weeks before the 4th of July. Owner had a very strange way about him ,and the park was terrible. Moved to another RV park which was much better. Would not stay there and do not reccomend it at all. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here on Passport for 2 nights and were not charged extra as the other reviewer was. The owner didn't have the most pleasant personality, but was not that difficult to get along with. The park is a typical desert park and one should expect wind, dust and dryness. The power, water pressure and sewer worked well, but only 30amp. It is a great location for visiting Ft Davis and the surrounding mountains. The McDonald Observatory was great, I would recommend it. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Overland Trail Campground in a Motorhome.
