4 Parks near Sweetwater, Texas
Jun 2015 - $10.00
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

Located 5 miles off I-20 so it's very quite, peaceful, and dark at night. Location not marked very well. Only 1 other RV here. 50 amp power and water worked well, didn't see or look for a dump station but there could be one here. Rooftop dish and Verizon cell and hotspot worked. CG is large paved circle with several gravel "roads" zig zagging throughout. Sites not really marked but very roomy so finding a site was easy with only 2 RVs here. Pay the $10 fee at golf course office 3 miles away. Great deal for $10. - big greg

Although a little of the beaten path for an over-nighter we were pleasantly surprised by this park. Granted, we stayed here the end of January and had the entire park to ourselves. The manager personally came to us for registration (rather than having us go to the golf course) and was very friendly. It's true that there are no clearly defined sites which wasn't an issue since the campground was empty, but I can imagine it could be a problem in the summer or during their busy season. Since we stayed just one night we had no need to use the restroom, so I can't comment on their condition. We did walk around the grounds and hike up the hill to see the lake and watch the sunset. For $10 w/ 50amp service it was a great value for us. - lsmaxx

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
