This smaller RV park lies adjacent to the State of Texas' rest area and shares bathrooms with it (there are no showers available, but the bathrooms were very clean and modern). At $10/day, it is hard to beat. The attendant was friendly and helpful. Sites are close together, but they are shaded and fellow campers were quiet throughout my stay.
The nearby towns of Wellington and Shamrock offer gas, groceries, Dollar Stores, etc. Check out Wellington's downtown square and the newly-restored Ritz Theatre that is fantastic for movies or concerts. FDR's very first shelterbelt of trees from the Dust Bowl days lies about 40 miles east, near the town of Mangum, OK (check online for exact location). Mangum also has an attractive downtown. We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
As mentioned, the towns of Wellington, Shamrock, and Mangum, OK are worth the short drive. Shamrock lies along the original Route 66 and the art deco gas station is very interesting.

This was a jewel of a find. We had planned on staying in Shamrock, but both parks there were not acceptable. This pretty little park is seven miles north of Wellington next to a rest area. There is electric and water hookups, restrooms, but no showers. The sites are very large, under massive trees. There is no cable, Wi-Fi or cell phone reception, although we did receive a signal on our MiFi. We would definitely stay here again. There are on site managers. It is just beautiful. We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Motorhome.
Could be a good park if maintained. We drove through only. There was a gathering and cars were parked in RV sites and on road. We had to drive our 37' rig across grass just to get out. People on blocked road would not move one vehicle to let us by. I say don't waist your time and besides There was no control on who was there causing my wife to be afraid of the park We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great find. It has stunning views of the River and bridge. We stayed here one night in a large, level pull through site. The dump station is available as you exit campground. Very nice camp host. I wish we could have stayed another day. Weak Verizon cell/data at this area. We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Motorhome.

Pioneer Park is one of those "Best Kept Secrets" we all like to find out about. The host is friendly and helpful, the park clean and well kept and quiet. An outstanding value for the price! Having the Wi-Fi was a nice touch. The camp and the dump station is an easy in - easy out. We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Motorhome.

I agree with previous posts, but had a major problem with high voltage. We winter in the Texas Rio Grand Valley and planned do use this park seasonally as we come and go. In May 6, 2011 the voltage was 130 and on October 17, 2011 the voltage was 134. Our Surge Guard would not allow us to hook up the electric at 134 volts! The host said the electric company sets the voltage to allow the campground to have adequate voltage during peak periods. This results in high utilization voltage during off peak, that exceeds the National Electric Code of 120V +/- 5% (114-126). Beware! We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Motorhome.

This is a great little county park off Hwy 83, about 6 miles north of Wellington. Very friendly, helpful camp host. Pull-thru's are long and level. $10 for 30 amp; $15 for 50 amp. There isn't a shower house, only restrooms that are part of the attached rest area on the side closest to the highway. Covered picnic tables, short walk to the river, 2 picnic pavilions, honor box for fees if host is unavailable. 3 day limit if no reservations are made. Moderate highway noise. Great stop-over park, moderately priced. We camped at Pioneer Park-Collingsworth County in a Fifth Wheel.
