5 Parks near Van Horn, Texas
Apr 2015 - $14.00
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

Great place for one or two night stay for the value. Not as fancy as other camp grounds but plenty of space for pull through and clean. Free internet and electric (30 & 50amp) and TV. Must be a passport member to get the $14 rate otherwise it's $22 per night. No one at office until 2 PM so check yourselves in if early. Will come back again when passing through. - Luthersr

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

Staff was very friendly and helpful. She even offered to drive us to dinner if we didn't want to unhook our car. Park is gravel with sparse vegetation between sites. Most sites have at least one tree that vary from 8 to 30 feet tall. Pull-throughs are long enough for our 36' mobile home and pull vehicle with about 10' to spare. Our cable did not work, but it was the first time using a new cable, so I can't say whether it was my cable or their hookup. My cable wasn't long enough to check the box next to our site. The Wi-Fi is very slow; most websites and apps timed out before advancing. We camped at the back of the park, so the noise from I-10 was not very noticeable, even with our windows open. Park was probably only 20% full so, we weren't assigned a spot and were told to set up where ever we wanted to. This is a good place to overnight while passing through on I-10. We would stay again if passing through. - Dale07

This is good park for over night, easy in and out near town. The sites are pull thru and long enough to stay hooked up to the trailer. The staff is very helpful and they will drive you to town if you need so you don't have to unhook. They have been doing improvements on the park each year we have stayed it is better. - JDR

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 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

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

This was a fine place for a big rig to stop for an overnight, just off of I10.
It was not very busy, and the pull through was large enough to accommodate our 44 ft motorhome with the Jeep still hooked up.
The check in process was quick and and the lady was very friendly.
Best of all .... it was within walking distance to a pretty good steakhouse!
I would definitely stay here again. - MBRADLEY

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

Placed in the back row of pull through sites which are very long, no problem for 45' coach pulling SUV. Of course in this area there is nothing but gravel sites, but not much dust. As always pay a bit more for being in a KOA, but Park is far enough from I-10 to not be a bother compared to other park in town. As we weren't in a hurry in the morning, we ordered breakfast from the onsite restaurant. Good, plentiful food and it was delivered quickly. Park is also near the big Stripes truck stop. If ever in the area again would stay. - Watt4

Over priced, but it is a KOA. Nice cafe for breakfast in the morning is why we stop each year. - PugetSound
