As other reviewers have noted, this is a gravel parking lot but is very convenient, well managed and is a great value with either Escapee or Passport America discounts. Perfect for overnight. Dog owners be aware that sand burrs and 'goat heads' abound, even in their fenced in pet area. Lots of traffic noise. - mockturtle
Rate is cash payment, with a Passport America discount; credit card rate is $14. You just pick a spot until office is open. Laundry is $1.50 and is very clean. I checked out the showers/restrooms and they were very clean as well. The Wi-Fi here is fantastic. There is cable as well. This is a small park but very comfortable for the 2 nights we spent here. We would definitely stay here again. I also looked at the other parks in the area and think this is the best. Just a note, this is a small town with few amenities and the train does go through town but that was not a problem at night. - goofy50
Price reflects Passport America rate. It is a no frills park but well worth the price for full hook ups, cable, and WiFi that actually works. They also have an enclosed area for dogs which is a nice feature so the pets can get some exercise. Very friendly staff! Clean park. - Susan C.
Very nice campground and very nice staff. Great place to overnight with lots of pull thru's. The only reason I could not give it a 10 was the abundance of sand spurs. I know it is hard to get rid of them but the poor dogs had a heck of a time with them and have them in my carpet now...But would probably stop there again since most likely all the campgrounds in the area have them.. - steelpony
Very nice park & owners but no amenities. It's clean & well taken care of but the park is mostly dirt & gravel. Nice park for overnight parking but not for longer stays. Sites are mostly level & we didn't have any problem with the length of the sites for our needs. We travel in a motorhome towing a vehicle with a wide bike rack. - gourdguru
We just stopped here on our way further west so we only stayed for one night. As other reviews have said, we didn't even have to unhook. The people who run the place are super friendly and super accommodating. The five of us just hopped into his F150 and he took us to pickup dinner. Our pull-thru site was nearly perfectly level and easy to pull into with plenty of room for our slides. The views of the mountains were fantastic. The sunrise in the morning was very photo worthy. There were a few fire ants near the hook ups, but we are very used to them. - mythmakr
This is an older park. All the roads and sites are gravel. Many of the electrical pedestals were covered with bags. The pull-through site rows were too close together. In many cases, it would be necessary to pull through the row in front of you when departing the campground. Site 21 had erratic electricity. At times it read correctly, but at other times it was zero to over 135 volts. We unplugged after finding out there was a problem. When this was point out to the gentleman in the office, he implied it was our problem. Repairs cost over $500. The second night we moved to a difference site and had no further problems. Upon departing, we pointed this out to the gentleman in the office. He replied, "We found the problem." There was no explanation. I would not stay here again. - 18 yrs on the rd
This park is OK for an overnight. 50Amp pull thrus so didn't have to unhook even at 65 feet. Restrooms are old but usable. Owners were friendly. WiFi $3 we didn't use. Not much else to say about it. - TedandJan
This was not a pleasant park. Dog running loose jumped on me then walked into office and it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Shower not very clean and then the water didn't drain. Sewers backed up when trying to dump tanks. Would not recommend this park. Price was Passport America. - Lindadiet
Over the years, when traveling through west Texas, we often stayed at the "Eagles Nest" RV Park. We were disappointed when the park closed a couple of years ago. It's a quiet location and you can walk to nearby restaurants without unhitching. We were happy to learn that it had recently re-opened with the name of "Southern Star" RV Park. We pull a long 5th wheel and the sites are large pull through with plenty of room for slideouts. The new owner greets you as you pull in and is very personable and friendly. We asked if the Mexican restaurant a short walk away was open but it was only 2:00 PM and we thought it might not open until dinner time. The owner thought it was open but he pulled out his phone and called the restaurant to make sure. It was open.
He's working hard to clean up the sites and trim all the trees and it looks pretty good.
We took a 50 amp pull through site with full hookups. We will be staying here again when we are in the area. He does give a Good Sam discount. - Ron1936
This park use to be Eagle's Nest, but closed 2 years ago -- The new owner is a RV' er & has only had it a month when we stayed there -- He & his wife are working hard to get it back in shape , after 2 years of neglect -- The spaces are pull thrus, & level -- No over hanging limbs, & wide roads -- I would have rated it higher, but still some work needed to be done -- We would sure stay here again -- It is a Pass Port America park -- - George Crow
This is an excellent overnight stay. Very long sites so we didn't have to unhook. Dirt sites and throughout park. Good WiFi and excellent cable. They have a new cable system with over 50 digital and 20 analog channels. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. There isn't much here in Van Horn but due to the extensive Oil work in West Texas, it is the only place to stay between Van Horn and Abilene. - Lombardos
This is a well maintained campground with friendly and helpful staff at check-in. Road and pads were gravel. We had a spacious and level pull-through, big rig access was good. Easy on and off 1-10, and Pilot is just on the corner. Plenty of space for our towed, so no need to unhook just for a one night stopover. There were a few shade trees and some grass, which had the usual Texas stickers in them. The bathrooms were old but clean, however the ladies did have a large ugly hole in the ceiling! The laundry was small but adequate. Pet friendly with a dog run, but no pick up bags. Wi-Fi was slow but cell was okay. There is a small KOA Kafe on site. They serve breakfast and dinner, nothing fancy, but very welcome after a long day on the road. We would stay here again. This campground was surprisingly quiet, and we appreciated the host allocating sites intelligently and not putting everyone together in one small space. - tobyjug
This was a great park. We arrived early in the day and got a end site with the a view of the mountains. It was very quiet and peaceful. They had a small but nice dog run. The sites are level, mostly gravel. Hooks ups were convenient. - Full Timers McC
