An overnight stop. Near the center of town. Clean, easy in and out. Dirt/gravel parking. Good cable and Wi-Fi. 30 and 50 amp power was good. Would stay again. - Lew

Easy to get to. Easy in, easy out. Entire campground is dirt and pea gravel but level. Small park, no frills, no shade. All sites are pull thru. Wi-Fi was fair. We arrived around 3 without reservations but entire park was filled by 7pm. Dog area was weeds and had a lot of burrs which is why I give a 9. Would defiantly stay here again for a one nighter. Office is open from 8 to 8:30 am. And 2pm to 6pm. - EggerMar

Stayed here while passing through the area. Level gravel campground geared to one nighters located on the main street in town. Utilities (sewer, elec, water) all good. Wifi excellent. Cable TV very good. Mostly pull thru sites (long enough for our 35 ft 5W with truck on the side. Longer units are put in the back to allow access for other campers. Friendly host that mostly works 2-9pm. Very good value and all services worked fine. Will definitely stay here again. - threehendersons

This was a nice place to stay for 1 night on the road. Fairly level and easy to get into. Easy to find, right off the road. However there was quite a bit of road noise all night. Owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Full hook ups with cable TV & WiFi. - weezy5

Called the park late in the day and they stayed open for us - it was past 9:00 pm when we arrived. Easy entry into the park and after effortless registering, easy to get to our site. Easy to drive to our site, we did not unhitch and had plenty of room for our 34' TT and truck. Though late, the bathrooms and showers were clean. Although close to the interstate, it was actually pretty quite. Did not use wifi or cable TV so can't comment. We only stayed for the night but will use again when we're back in the area. - CU-RVers

Did an overnight stay. Power and water were good. Cable TV a bust, could not get it to work. Pet run decent. Park has some migrant workers so to speak. As a recreational RV'er, I prefer parks without long term or migrant workers. Will probably use the KOA on return trip. - StormGuy

This park is nothing fancy and you need to be self-contained here. It offers FHU, cable and a basic level of Wi-Fi. The sites and roads are gravel with some grass here and there. It is right off the Interstate and near a RR track. It is about 1.3 miles from the 259B exit. The sign reflects motel and RV. The campground is behind the motel and so is the office. With the windows closed, about the only thing we heard was an occasional train but it did not interrupt our sleep. Location is close to the Davis Mountain observatory. Once out of town, this is a very dark area making the nights great for star gazing. We will keep this on our 'places to stop'. - Workamper04

Beautiful surrounding mountain views. Easy access from interstate; exit and campground roads are flat and wide. Easily accommodates bigger rigs, though wouldn't be ideal for something over 60 feet. Park is quiet other than highway and train noise, which we don't mind. It's an older park but the new owners are making many improvements. We had no trouble with hookups (FHU 30 amp with cable tv). If you're looking for fancy new buildings you won't find them, but if you enjoy historic Route 66 era ones this park is lovely. Great value with camping club discount. The owners are very nice and will drive you around town if needed. RV and mechanical repairs offered on-site though we did not use these. - fu11timers

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

Southern Star RV Park will stand out in our memory due to the caring and consideration of the new managers. We had reserved an overnight stay while traveling to a new destination, so were quite pleased to be assigned a huge, level pull-thru site with plenty of room to leave our tow car hooked up. We were also happy to find cable TV and excellent WiFi provided as well. The park had apparently sat vacant for a time, so the new managers have obviously been working hard to spruce things up and bring in new amenities. As we prepared to leave the following morning, we discovered our motorcoach engine was unable to start properly. Southern Star's husband/wife management team kicked into high gear to help us. First they assisted us in locating all available diesel mechanics in the small town of Van Horn. Then they checked on us regularly while we tried a variety of potential solutions. When nothing worked, and the final option was getting towed out on a flatbed trailer, they helped get our rig positioned properly with their own vehicle and assisted the tow truck driver with getting the RV onboard. The consideration these folks gave us made a difficult situation almost pleasant. We wish Southern Star RV Park much future success and recommend it highly! - The Borgs

Stayed 1 night passing through Van Horn. Very adequate park for the traveler who wants off the road for a night or longer to relax. New park owner is working to improve this park. Easy access into the park off the main road in town. Many places to eat. The sites are long enough you will not need to disconnect your toad. Roads and sites are a gravel material. Even after 1.4" rain during the night, the roads were no issue for a 34k pound motorhome. We would return here in the future. - Workamper04

Good gravel level sites with shade from old trees in most. I-10 on one side and railroad on the other, but noise level from both was not disturbing. Two sewer dump sites/site (middle and end). New owners - very accommodating and helpful. Sites were generous. All the best with new owners with some updates - all the best. Would stay here again. - Livermorered

We made reservations and when we did that staff was very helpful and efficient in getting this done for us. The staff also was great about welcoming us in the morning (we arrived after hours).
Even though we arrived late at night towing a big dolly and vehicle (our total length was 70'), we were greeted by new owner. The owner happily led us to our campsite. Our site had 1 tree on it and we were lucky enough to get a site with a casita type structure that gave us a second tree, fenced grass area and was the perfect place for me to put our chairs. The owner also stayed and helped us get settled in and told us that is we needed anything at all to let him know.
The sites are very large level sites and most are pull-through sites. Easy hook ups and located in a great place. There is a great pet area that is fenced and has a couple of benches for us owners to sit on. Pet area is very convenient and clean. If you're traveling with horses they have some corrals too.
The pool is extremely clean as are the grounds here. They also sell propane here as well.
There is a beautiful stocked fishing pond-catch and release fishing only. A perfect, serene and peaceful place to relax and detox after a long day of driving or fish for a bit. There is also a beautiful view of the mountains.
It's extremely quiet here, which is a great change from most RV parks. It's off the highway and down the road a little bit. I think we took exit 140A and drove past a glass station with a Wendy's. Turned left at the sign.
Van Horn RV park has daily, and monthly rates - possibly weekly (didn't ask about weekly). We are here on business and found their monthly rate very competitive, with a large site and all the amenities that they have. They also have a 24-hour laundry room, restrooms and I believe showers too. There is also a playground, tent area with picnic tables and small BBQ grills installed. - Sohapi

Was pleasantly surprised at how nice the park was because I expected it to be rundown, seeing that it was no longer a KOA. Office Manager/Lady is a sweetheart being very considerate and professional. Very close to the 10 freeway but no noise. Looks like the new owners are going to make it a nice place to stay. - Pops42

Well, as of 5 days ago (that would be May 6, 2015) this park is no longer a KOA. Which is one reason we picked it out of those available in Van Horn. Then when we inquired about the great breakfast cafe, we were told that it's closed Sun, Mon, and Tue because they are shorthanded and don't have enough staff. That was our second reason for stopping here! Oh well, can't win them all!
The park is typical of what you will find in the southwest: lots of gravel and lots of wind = lots of dust, but the sites are good sized and the park is far enough from I-10 that noise is not an issue. - 1fortheroad
