7 Parks near Sweetwater, Texas

I highly recommend this park. For us (3 nights), this is the bureau of standards of clean, well run parks. We travel in a 17' Casita so bathroom and showers are important. These are cleaner and nicer than many motels we've stayed in -- laundry facilities too. The sites are well spaced and connections well designed. Lots of trees nearby too. The only draw back is nearby I-20 with associated traffic noise, but it was not a problem for us. - Mango

This RV park is the best thing to happen to camping in Sweetwater. I was cautious because the last park we stayed at in Sweetwater (just across the freeway) had so many stickers and goatheads that our dog wouldn't step out of the RV. But Bar J does a great job with their landscaping and keeping the grass healthy. There's lots of room between sites. The bathrooms are immaculate. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The location is ideal (if you can handle a little freeway noise). This would be a premier RV park in any city. Bar J, welcome to Sweetwater! - Rusty_C

Easy access, fuel across the street. Quiet but interstate noise and trains can disturb the quiet. Some trees. Good spacing, decent wifi! Great for an over night. - 12858

This place is a few miles off the interstate and signs are few and far between however the GPS coordinates were spot on. Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are just kind of scattered around in amongst the trees. You find power (30 & 50 amp) and water that are close to one of the wide spots, park and hook up! Most areas are level and range in size from small to huge. No problem finding an open spot for satellite and Verizon 4G was strong. Very quiet sparsley populated with campers. Great place for an overnight stop to get away from the interstate noise. - Pjoe

Nice park located below the dam of lake. Trees and shade available. Dump station located near exit of park. Power pedestal located next to site. We camped during motorcycle rally and cook-off. - TnL Thomas

This park is completely adequate if you do not need showers or a clean bathroom. The spacious grounds are mowed and green at this time after the rains. There is a very helpful camp host so one does not have to stop at the golf course to register. We had a pick of probably 5 level sites, all with 50A and water service on grass or gravel. . We were warned of fire ants but did not see any. Most sites have no significant shade. There are flush toilets and a sink with cold water. Ceilings and walls have spider webs and mud dauber nests. I understand there is very little water in the reservoir so don't plan on using the beach to swim. If one wants to golf, this would be a great place to park. There is a dump station as you exit. There is a pavilion that one could use for a group camp. Nice tent camping area as well but where would one use the latrine? - easydoesit

Off the interstate before you get into town. They advertise on several freeway signs that they have a pool and cable. Since it was really hot, we decided to try this RV park after having an issue at another park in town that we tried to check into.
At check in, the office was closed and no one was around. There was a number to call, so I called it and a lady showed up after a few minutes. After she checked me in and took my money, she told me the pool and cable were both out of service. We went to our site and found that all of the sites had not been mowed in quite some time. The grass was 2 or 3 times higher than it should be. The hook ups were in horrible shape and did not look like anything we wanted to be attached to. This place was truly appalling.
I went back to the office and said we did not want to stay and she refused to give me a refund. - jvkATX

We parked here because all other parks were full and a storm was predicted. The manager was friendly and helpful. The bathhouse was unusable - both restrooms and showers. Parking was tight. Only good for an essential overnight. - Testuda

If you have a travel trailer or smaller 5th, this place is OK, only OK. Sites are dirt, not level and not at all suitable for a NICE motor home. Owner was very nice but this place is a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. Only good for one overnight. You don't want to spend any time here. - Largeandy

In town right off the interstate. Not in a very nice/safe looking neighborhood. Some pull thru sites but they are very short. Check in was not ideal. When you enter, there is a very run down house that looks like it should be condemned. The office is a little further in. When we arrived it was closed and it said to check in at a certain site number or to call a phone number. The site numbers were not visible so it was impossible to locate the site they referred to. By the looks of the mostly permanent trailers, I would not want to risk knocking on the wrong door. I called the number and the lady came right over.
We checked into a site right in front of the office. When we plugged our EMS/ surge protector it read high voltage! Needless to say we could not stay. They were very nice about refunding our money.
Most of the sites were occupied with what appeared to be permanent residents or maybe rentals working in the oilfields.
Unless you are really desperate I would recommend passing Sweetwater on by. - jvkATX

Sites are scattered over the campgound, but dispersed so you are not close. First electric we tried had open ground, but the one on the other side of the pole was good. Managed by the city and had a very friendly host on site. Great little park for an over night or a few days. We will come back. - Orlan

Not a destination park, but great value for an overnight stopover at the Passport America rate. However, it would be overpriced at the regular rate of $30 for a 30 amp full hookup site and $40 for 50 amp. Many pull-thrus, easy access from I-20 but far enough away that you don't hear traffic noise. There is an active rail line nearby, but we heard no trains after about 10 pm. Sites felt spacious, but we were one of only 4 rigs in the park. Water pressure was good and power was reliable (although the pedestals in our site and others weren't active, so the owner ran a long extension cord to our site, but it worked fine). Sewer connections are slightly higher than the sites, so rigs with low-mounted outlets may have a bit of trouble draining their tanks. AT&T voice coverage is weak (2 bars) but usable. Verizon data coverage was fine.
The owner lives about 8 miles away; he'll meet you at the park if you call the park number about an hour before you arrive. There is a camp host but otherwise no on-site office or management, but really no need for one either since there are very few amenities. This park is only 2 years old, and was originally developed for monthly use by oilfield workers before the energy bust. It is still a work in progress, and I'd expect its facilities to be improved over time when the oil and gas market improves, but right now it's best for self-contained rigs. - PlanoPilot

This is a funky little campground. Our first impression was "What have we gotten ourselves into?" But we ended up loving this place. The owner is great. We had a long, level pull-through site. They were having problems with the electric hookups to our site, so he ran a 50-amp extension cord to it, and we had no problems. There's a train nearby, but it didn't bother us. The owner told us about a fair and rodeo that was being held that weekend, so we went and had a wonderful time. So glad we stopped here. We would definitely come here again if in the area. - mrpeepers

This is fine as a stop over. Its on the business loop of a small town off of I20. This is a no frills park, but the pull thru was easy to navigate, and it the park is enough from the highway that we couldn't hear the noise. We did hear one train but that was all. Owner is very nice and as mentioned, you can't beat the Passport rate of $15. There were two feral cats around so we couldn't let our cat out. There didn't seem to be any cable, and we got no channels OTA. - Soos

Park is old but functional for short stay. Location: 32.4067, -100.7588 or approx 5 miles East of Colorado City along the frontage road south of I-20. Host lives on-site and was helpful. Does not accept credit cards. - Gary B

This park is really a home to men and families working on the oil line with one space for people traveling through. The owner is very kind the space is very large, hook ups easy but not sure I would come back. Train is nearby and the place is really quiet by 9:00 but by 5:30 there is a lot of noise as the men leave for the day. - Bev&Dick

New park about 12 miles west of Abilene that is still being developed. Had to shut down engine while being registered because of road dust. Site plenty long enough but sewer connection placed so that you have to park on first half of pad. No trees or grass. Bar ditches at entry and exit of site that will be mud holes if it ever rains. Just a flat, barren, gravel place with hookups. - countrycoach99

This RV park is only 18 months old, so much is still in progress. The manager was super friendly and helpful, even driving one of us to the nearest store for some needed parts. Sites are very long - the pull-through sites are over 100'. WiFi was good, occasionally slowing down, but still quite useable. Far enough away from I-20 for the vehicle noise to not be a bother.
Excellent location for one nighters just passing through.
Cost was $32.50 if paying cash. If charging, cost is $33.50.
Owner and manager(s) continue to improve the park. We will happily stay here next time we pass through. - L'Andante
