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
If you're traveling west Texas on Hwys 20 and 10 and looking for RV "Resorts" stop looking because there aren't any! Desert Willow is a great place to overnight. Easy access, a short distance off the Interstate, clean, friendly, and very reasonable. - User3369
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 was our second visit. The first was two years ago when the new owners took over. They are doing an excellent job getting this into great shape. The Wifi actually works compared to other parks. The 12 cable channels were very clear. This is a great overnight with easy Interstate access. Very close to Pilot Truck Stop. There is some train noise but this is true of all parks in the area. What is also fantastic is that their pull through sites are really that. So many pull through sites make you unhook if you are in a motor hone. Not here. And if you don't want to unhook and still go out for dinner, the owners will take you and pick you up. All this for $31 on Good Sam. - kegmaster
There have been some bad things said about the area of Van Horn. It has earned a reputation of not being very friendly to RVers, especially those who do not want an overnight. There are (or were) some pretty restrictive notions on places to pull over to take a short nap or trying to boondock for a rest while traveling through town. I have had friends who pulled into a parking lot with their rig and were told to MOVE ... even though they had intended to shop. This was supposedly the result of one RV park owner who raised Cain with the town government and forced ordinances through when her business was going down the tubes and she hated to see anyone taking a nap ... trucker or RVer ... when she could make a dollar. We have bypassed Van Horn for years because of this ... don't even buy fuel there. We happened to need to end our day in Van Horn this trip, ad decided to give this spot a try because of it's easy location. SO glad we did!! The lady at the Office could not have been nicer. We were not towing. She let me know that they were happy to take us to dinner and pick us up, if we liked. Really??? How nice is that!! The power is upgraded, flat, even , wide sites with full hookups. Easy skies for our roof satellite, good free wifi, picnic table at the site. Another Park Attendant came over to say Hello after he saw a puff of smoke under our coach (it was the AquaHot starting ... no worries), and he just wanted to make sure we had no trouble. all around friendly, clean place ... I will stop in Van Horn again and happily stay here. Good News! - dqcarol
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
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
Good place, good value for an overnight. Just the basics but that's all you need. Welcoming friendly staff indicated there are new owners and improvements are on the way. - fulltimer121
Our site was long enough for our 40' motorhome and tow vehicle without unhitching and wide enough for all four slides with room to spare. Park is clean, well-maintained, and has new ownership as of Feb. 2015. Laundry facility looked very clean. - DiplomatTraveler
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
Nice large level spaces. Staff was very nice. They have a cute little café that serves breakfast and dinner served some good Texas-style southern comfort food. We extended our stay 1 night to give us a chance to just relax for a day. - Tvl Junky
A welcome stop through Texas either going East or West. Staff helpful and friendly. Sites easy to navigate even for bigger rigs. - jeremiah g
