We stayed in this park three days to visit Crater of Diamonds State Park which is only a mile away. The park is small, but well maintained and we were warmly greeted and directed to our site. Because we were staying multiple days, the owner loaned us, at no cost, diamond screens and other equipment for use at the state park. She was also kind enough to give us detailed instructions on how to mine for diamonds which we very much appreciated. We didn't find a diamond but we did find a 'gem' of an RV Park at which we would happily stay again if we were in the area. The only reason I didn't give the park a "10" is the absence of any television signal.
This is a bare bones park that is set up for longer term, more permanent residents. There are three pull-through sites in the back of the park and it was adequate for our overnight stop on our way to somewhere else. We paid $25 for the night which was pretty steep considering. But if you are a Passport America person I guess it's about half that price. The lady who took our cash (they do not take credit cards) was nice and the park was quiet. Would stay for an overnight, but not any longer.
This is our second time passing through and staying at this park. We stayed here in the past because of the convenient location. We will stay here in the future because the owner/manager makes sure you have a good experience. We developed a sudden electrical problem and he came and got us fixed up (and wouldn't accept a dime for the help) and I will forever be grateful. They have a small restaurant and store. If you are traveling on I-40 and need a nice place to stop, this is your place.
This is the third time we have stayed at this park. It is a perfect day's drive from our home in Michigan and it works for us coming or going. The park is well-maintained. They escort you to your site and give you warm fresh cookies when you check in. We've never stayed longer than one night so we can't comment on activities, etc., but the people are friendly and we have always had a good experience here.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 weeks. I picked the park from the website and while initially we were a little disappointed when we drove in, after a day or two we realized this was actually a pretty good park. The area was ravaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008 and is still in recovery mode. The park is basic and has no cable TV, but that is true for all the parks in the area. You can grab the major networks with a decent antenna. We found it a good spot for touring both Galveston and Houston and we would stay here again if, and when, we are in the area. The park management was nice and even offered to loan us an antenna if the one on the trailer didn't work. Be aware that if you have a big rig, make sure they have a long space available as we watched a man in a Class A really struggle to squeeze into his space because the park was full.
We stayed here for three days while enroute to San Antonio for a longer stay. This is a no-frills park, but more than adequate for a short stay. It was a good base for doing the activities in Abilene. No one ever emptied the trash in the bathrooms during our stay, but otherwise the bathrooms and showers were clean. We would stay here (for a short time) if we were passing through.
My wife and I stayed here for a full month. It was the first time we had ever stayed that long in the same park. We were not disappointed. The park is well-managed and meticulously maintained. It seemed someone was always cleaning. The park is on the bus line to downtown which we used several times. Very convenient and only $1.10 which is cheap compared to downtown parking. Lots of activities for campers, and park employees and long term residents were very friendly. (Happy Hour, potlucks, dances, exercise classes, etc.) The park has a large recreation room with exercise equipment which I used everyday. Restrooms are clean and modern (at least the one I used attached to the recreation hall). Because we camped here for a month we paid $450 plus $33 for electricity (metered). The Wi-Fi was not always reliable; that was the only negative, and it was a small one. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the area.
