There are 3 city-operated campgrounds in Iraan. The oldest is Alley Oop, located on the northwest side of town with 10 sites. The Landing is located on the southeast side of town near the airport and has 12 sites. Rocky Top is just around the corner from The Landing and has 14 sites. Rocky Top appears to be newest of the three and is nothing more than a large parking lot. The Landing is the nicest, with some trees and grass. Alley Oop is a bit more run-down than the others and is smaller - not suitable for big rigs. The Landing and Rocky Top can both handle the largest rigs. Overnight fee for all three is $12. At the time we visited, all three were completely full with obviously long-term tenants and we were not able to stay the night. We camped at Rocky Top RV Park (formerly Iraan City Park) in a Motorhome.

Park is now called "Rocky Top". We just happened to see it from the highway as we drove into town. It is very clean and perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are huge enough that hopefully plans are to add more sites. There are no facilities, restrooms, etc. Pay is on the honor system, an envelope at a little pay station. It appears that most people there are workers in the area. We took the last available site. This will definitely be a place for an overnight stop for us.

Rate has changed to $10. Site I pulled into was strewn with broken glass, sites are generally unmaintained. Only other rigs there were permanents. We camped at Rocky Top RV Park (formerly Iraan City Park) in a Fifth Wheel.
Iraan, Texas was built on land donated by Ira and Ann Yates, thus its name. On the outskirts of town is a 40-acre city park, with a swimming pool, playground, trees, and more. In one part of the 40 acres is a small r.v. park with about 10-12 sites, one medium-to-small tree at several of the sites, and a dump station. Some sites are in a pull-through, center area with water, electricity and sewer hookups, and the rest lie along the rv section's perimeter with just water and electricity. This modest r.v. park provides no showers or rest rooms. A honor system exists at the r.v. park; you are asked to deposit the daily $6 charge in a box there. If you prefer, you can also drive it over to Iraan's "city office". The honor system speaks volumes about honesty and small-town courtesies that are so hard to find these days. It's been an altogether pleasant experience to stay there on two fall and winter trips in West Texas; we have enjoyed the quiet hospitality immensely. Roaming and grazing throughout all these quiet, peaceful 40 acres is a herd of about 20 deer. We camped at Rocky Top RV Park (formerly Iraan City Park) in a camper.
