This is an odd park and may not be for everyone. Situated well off the beaten path it has plenty of trees. Perhaps too many. Could be difficult to maneuver in places. The road in takes one through a rather rough area. Returning from town at night, which is a bit of a drive, we encountered some undesirable young folks obstructing the highway who had obviously been partying it up a lot. Park roads have some potholes. It rained a great deal while we were there and many of the sites on the lower area, which is where we were camped, were under water. Although the extent of this rainfall was unusual it was still clear that the sites on the lower area were prone to flooding. Sewer system must be inadequate, as it backed up during the rain storm. Not only were we unable to dump our tanks, but the back pressure filled them to the rim of the toilet. Nasty!!! Staff were very nice and helpful. Park rules seem to be rather lax. A large number of long term campers. We had the impression that had it not rained there might have been some noise. All that said, the pleasant rural atmosphere away from the highway is attractive. We are undecided about returning however.
This is a very nice little park located in an area that has few options to offer. Sites are a bit short, and would probably require many motor homes with a toad to unhook. Otherwise, very adequate with some shade at each site. Much more quiet than we expected, given the proximity to main highway. Staff were very friendly. Hookups all worked fine. Great spot to spend a couple of days and see the area. The town is a mixed bag of contrasts. Excellent art museum, but few restaurants. Nowhere to buy decaffeinated coffee but a great group of shops along the main drag. Go figure.
We have stayed here before. What a wonderful park…were it not for a few warts. First, the road in from the highway may be a bit tight for some large rigs, but it is passable. Nestled in a grove of large, mature pecan trees and alongside the San Saba River this park offers a pleasing atmosphere. Lots of space. Some newer pad sites with large concrete slabs for RVs. The golf course is adjacent to the park and offers more pleasing views. There is traffic all hours of the day as one must pass through the park to get to the golf course. But, one should expect this and not discount the rating. It is, after all, a golf course. Now for the warts. The staff seems to treat RV guests like bad relatives, and seem indifferent at best…hostile at worst. The woman who waited on us at the pro shop would literally not speak to us. No instructions, greeting, rules, etc. Very bad customer service. The worst!!! Wi-Fi did not work, nor did the cable TV. We did stay in the part of the park that is supposed to have cable. The community building houses bathrooms that were somewhat clean, but the rest of the building remained locked the entire time we stayed at the park. There are about a dozen long-term guests with the usual array of junk spread around their site. Although we did not experience any offensive noise, wild dogs, or partying, the prospect seemed inevitable. Although we will probably stay at this park again because of the scenery and proximity to San Saba we will do so expecting to be treated like bad relatives again…and in spite of the hosts…not because of them. Too bad. This park has great potential.
Having tried most of the parks in the Lubbock area this has become one of our favorite stops by far. The park was built about seven years ago and has held up well under use. In general the park is well maintained and cared for. Few signs of age. Some small trees, which is all one can expect in this part of Texas. Paved interior roads are in good shape. Adequate length, gravel sites have curbs and are level. All of Lubbock is as level as a pool table for that matter! All are in good shape. Water, sewer, cable TV, electricity, and Wi-Fi all in good shape and all worked well. Staff are superb. None better. The only possible negatives are that there is some road noise as the adjacent highway becomes increasingly more heavily traveled. Some long term campers…but no junk. Great dog runs with actual grass!
This park is located in a rural community on a paved county highway. There are very few parks within a fifty mile radius, apart from a state park. The park host was extremely helpful and friendly. Very nice person who goes the extra mile to make sure her guests are well settled and informed. Laundry room is virtually new and in excellent condition. Water, sewer, and electricity hook ups all worked fine. Minimal road noise in spite of the fact that we took a site in the front row nearest the highway. Sites are extremely long. Even the longest motorhome with a toad should have no issues here. Now for the bad news. Park roads are gravel and in OK condition but the individual sites are not paved…just soil. If it rains, which admittedly it rarely does in this part of Texas, one might find ones self in an awful mess. The entire park is as level as a pool table, with no sign of a tree or picnic table. There are no amenities of any kind apart from the laundry and restrooms. Although there were few park guests, they were all long term campers. The neighborhood and the town itself, although friendly, suffer from decline. In spite of these negatives we would happily return to this park.
This park is located in a rural area, just a couple of miles from the highway. Access is good, via paved county roads. The somewhat secluded location makes for a quiet camping experience so far as road noise is concerned. Although off the beaten path, one's impression is that the facility has seen better days. It does not appear as though any maintenance has been done in years, including the interior roads that are gravel and full of potholes. Many trees, which is nice, cause some interfere with vehicle traffic. Many sites are end-to-end, and very short. Water, sewer, and electricity seemed to work fine although the hook ups were in pretty marginal condition. Most of the park sites are take up by permanent campers, some of whom are obviously not neat freaks based on the assortment of scooters, motorcycles, BBQ grills, coolers, lawn chairs and assorted “stuff” laying around their sites. Although very friendly and seemingly helpful on the telephone the park staff was never available at the office. We never saw a host during our entire stay. We did not feel comfortable or safe here at all. We will not return and would not recommend this park to anyone. Sorry.
What a pleasant surprise this park turned out to be! Located far enough off the highway so there is no road noise. Access down a residential street may seem a little tight to some, but adequate. Situated in a grove of pecan trees along the San Saba River and adjacent to a fairly nice public golf course, this park offers a pleasant atmosphere and retreat. Some long term campers, but not the typical junk usually associated with them. Level concrete pads at each site was a nice surprise. Roads are crushed granite, thus one does not track it into ones RV. Electricity, sewer and water all worked fine. Wi-Fi worked well. Cable TV did not appear to be working at the sites along the river, but was working at the newer sites in the center of the park. Restrooms and showers, although only one per gender, were clean and new. Nice laundry and public room. The only staff person is located at the pro shop at the golf course. No store or supplies, apart from golf related items. Very nice place to walk. The town of San Saba has an excellent nature tail for walking as well. No evidence of wayward dogs, or their deposits. One of the nicest little parks we have stayed at, and certainly a bargain at $21.00 a night.
This little park is a true diamond, and a gift to RV travelers. With a nightly fee of $0 for the first three nights and $5 after how can you go wrong! I have paid over $50 and got a lot less for my money. The park is convenient, clean, well lighted and extremely well kept. Roads and sites are gravel and well maintained. There is some shade at each site. Good water pressure and electricity. Strong Wi-Fi. There is some road noise but we did not find it too objectionable. The folks at the city hall where you sign in, are very friendly and helpful. The town has a few restaurants that are, on balance, pretty good. About the only thing keeping this park from a 10 rating is the fact that it does not have sewer hook up and cable TV. They do have a dump station however, and it is in good shape and convenient. There are no other RV parks for twenty-five miles to the east and perhaps as much as forty miles in all other directions. PS Had to put $1.00 because this site will not take $0.
Nice small park located close to the Interstate. Access is down a narrow, paved road. The park is attractive, and has a lot of trees. Sites are gigantic. Many long terms campers, but almost all have well kept sites with expensive RVs. Park is quiet, however one might experience some highway noise if the wind is from the south. Much to our chagrin the owners are enlarging the park. A good thing never seems to last. Although we are sure the made some effort at preservation, the new area is almost devoid of trees and will detract from the ambiance of the setting. Nonetheless, this is a nice park for overnight or for a week long visit to the Abilene area.
We were hoping for so much more! The park is located reasonably close to the Interstate. Access is via a gravel road, which, like the entire RV Park, is quite dusty when the wind blows…which is all the time in Midland. The older part of the park has trees, but is 100% occupied by long term rentals…some rather shabby looking. The majority of the newer portion of the park, which is a treeless gravel parking lot, is also long term rental. The oil boom seems to have brought a great deal of traffic to Midland. Good for Midland and bad for RV’ers. The sites are very small and short. One would not be able to leave a travel trailer or 5th wheel attached to the tow vehicle and remain within the bounds of the sites. We found this to be extremely inconvenient because we like to leave early in the morning without disturbing other campers. The electricity, water and cable TV worked OK. WiFi was not strong. The park is adjacent to a junkyard, but there is a privacy fence. There is absolutely nothing appealing about this park. It is adequate for overnight camping if you don’t mind unhooking. The park is pet friendly, but the pet walk areas are not. The staff was friendly. The store has almost nothing on the shelf.
Surprisingly nice, small park located far enough off the interstate that there is very little traffic noise. Enormous, long sites with two sewer hook up’s per each. Sites are basically level. Some trees. Not a great deal of infrastructure but for my taste this is the best spot anywhere in the area. The road in from the highway is a little narrow and bumpy but if you take your time it’s fine. It rained almost constantly during the two day stay and there was almost no standing water or issues. This park goes to the top of my list!
On the plus side Town and Country is convenient to town and boasts some of the longest gravel RV sites I have ever seen especially in an older park. All of the mechanical features worked, including the cable TV. The park is very well maintained, with containers for cigarette butts everywhere! Almost all sites are pull through. Service was efficient. On the downside the RV sites are back-to-front, and very close together. Not so close one could pass a cup of coffee from RV to RV, but too close. Lots of road noise and no features. Not attractive at all I am sad to say, but a good over night stop, not a destination. We would happily stay there again when passing through.
This park was formerly the Fort Stockton KOA. We have stayed here dozens of times over the years and have had mixed experiences. On this most recent trip we were pleasantly surprised to find that much needed work is underway to improve and upgrade the park. The facility had been a bit shabby. It is encouraging to see the TLC underway since the sites are too short, and impossible of many motor homes and big 5th wheel rigs. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. The small restaurant on site serves up a great breakfast and supper. This park is one of our favorites for an overnight stay.
In all fairness it is difficult to provide a balanced review of La Vista. On the one hand if you are looking for a secluded RV site, outside town and away from the noise and bustle that offers a great view, fresh air and wide open skies…La Vista is for you! We enjoyed all of the foregoing aspects of the park very much. For a small park they have a nice, clean and well maintained little common building that, for a 12-14 site park, is more than adequate with 2 showers per gender, one clothes washer, one clothes dryer, and a nice recreation room. Sites are mostly downhill, gravel, but are workable. All are long and will more than accommodate a big rig. There is no pool, no playground equipment and basically no infrastructure any kind. We booked our reservation by e-mail and everything was efficient. Now the downsides, and there are several. There is virtually no cell phone service, TV reception or Wi-Fi. We tried the Wi-Fi several time, had almost no signal, then were dropped. No local TV at all, bring your satellite dish if TV is important to you. Rules regarding pets are loose, with amble “evidence” in sites and common areas. The park had three long term campers when we were there, and I believe there were close to a dozen dogs shared by the group to augment the roaming cats. We never saw a host or owner during our entire stay, so we can not comment about service. Several small but preventable issues detracted from our enjoyment, including long term campers monopolizing the washer/dryer, some construction work disturbing the tranquility, and two very large and scary looking dogs brought by the construction workers that were not on a leash and kept my frightened wife indoors the entire day and resulted in us cutting our trip short. On balance and with all the “warts” we would stay at La Vista again. We would happily take the shortcomings of La Vista over the higher price and somewhat “uppity” park in Town where we had stayed for almost a decade. Butt if TV, cell phone, Wi-Fi and infrastructure are important to you then you had better select another park.
This was our first stay at Broke Mill and we were pleasantly surprised. Having stayed at other parks in Del Rio, we found this one to be more than expected. The park is located just west of town and is convenient to shopping and recreation. Sites are quite level, and adequate for just about any size RV. Hook ups are convenient. Everything worked as it should. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Park was spotless and well maintained. This is a new park, so don’t expect much in the way of trees. The owners have planted a number of trees and shrubs, but considering that it is South Texas, it will take some time for them to mature. There is some road noise from Highway 90, but it is not overpowering, and it tapers off during the night. We did not find it objectionable. We will definitely camp here again.
We returned for yet another visit to this great KOA (and I don't even like KOAs!!!). That says something since we didn't have the RV on this trip so we tried a cabin. This park is excellent, and shows continuous improvement. It is one of the best parks we have ever stayed at. Much to our surprise the park has new owners as of the first of this year. Very very nice folks who are working super hard. I couldn't imagine how they could improve the place but they have. A couple of new deluxe cabins, more and better landscaping, evidence of fresh paint all over the place!
Park setting is excellent, with nice trees and access to the river. Very pleasant surrounding, but it doesn’t make up for the poor management. Staff seems indifferent and preoccupied with other matters. Owner must have some other business. Dogs running loose, laundry equipment insufficient for the number of sites and water pressure very poor. Stayed one night and moved on to the KOA in Dubois! This park is off my list for good.
Not very pleased with this park! First, the owners seem to be very comfortable with the fact that they rent most of the sites every evening so their interest in e was obviously minimal. The park is small, sites are small and are gravel/dirt. Not well kept. The hooks ups were marginal and the cable TV didn’t work. The view is nice but the park has been carved out of a hill side and evidence of erosion is everywhere. The most alarming item was when we were walking the dog and came upon the sign at the edge of the park behind the bed and breakfast part that indicated that we were entering a shooting range!!! Yep, a shooting range behind the park and guess what direction the down range part is pointing at you guessed it the park! Needless to saw we couldn’t wait to get out of there!
This park has the potential of being excellent once again, but is in pretty bad shape. The sites are small and hard to negotiate. Obviously laid out many years ago for small RV’s. All the roads, sites and hook ups show many many years of hard use and minimal service. It’s truly a shame as this park is so convenient to the Grand Canyon. We loved out stay at the park and would go back again in spite of the shortcomings, but sure wish someone would shut it down for a season and get it back up to standard. I would gladly pay twice or even three times what we paid!
New park that is basically a paved parking lot. Sites are big and convenient. Park is within walking distance of town. Lots of thing available at the complex and in town as well. Great location and nice clean, new park. But check is very inconvenient and hard to find. Signage is almost non existent. Once you check in you are on your own there is no on site management or security that we were able to see. Thus, none of the park rules were enforced while we were at the park. Dogs on the loose, loud unruly campers a real nightmare. They have excellent potential with this park but really need some management!!
This is a pitiful park and a poor experience from start to finish! The fact that it was raining didn’t help much, and that was not the parks fault, but the place was one giant mud hole. The park is fairly old and show years of use. Roads are in poor shape and could benefit from at least some small amount of maintenance. Sites are small, and our 30’ fifth wheel barely fit. Hook ups are only adequate. Staff seemed totally indifferent and lacked any sign of human warmth. The parks does have a café, and they deliver to your RV, which is very nice. The food was OK and the prices were a bit high for what you get. All in all this is one park to pass up.
Although this is by far the nicest KOA we have stayed at I am unable to give it a very high rating. This was our third visit to this KOA. Each time we have found it to be very very well kept, neat as a pin and well maintained. The facilities are excellent, and the layout is as well. So you ask why not the highest rating well because regardless of how nice the park itself is you can’t make up for poor management. First off, $38 is a lot of money for any park that is not a “destination” park and a legitimate five star. Second, you can buy them books and send them to school but you can’t seem to make the learning sink in! Why, with well over 100 sites and under 30 guests do they have to jam everyone together? This seems to be a trend as the more distant sites are starting to have weeds growing out of the gravel from lack of use. Next, how about having cable TV that works for $38 a night! Maybe a little more water pressure would help as well. I may sound as though I am picking a bit, but we were very excited to return to this park and very let down once we arrived. It’s now off our list for good.
We have camped at this park many many times and are sad to have to post a less than glowing review after our recent stay. The park has invested several thousand in a swimming pool, which is a nice addition but the money would have been much better spent on the roads and sites which are in bad shape. Gravel is about gone and it turns into a mud hole when wet and dust bowl when dry. The work campers seemed totally indifferent to us, and to the enforcement of the park rules (such as speeding, not driving through vacant sites, etc.). The park traffic flow has been altered since out last visit so that traffic now does not go past the work camper sites - nice move guys!! Worse yet, we paid $25 a night - up about $5. Sorry, this will absolutely be our last stay!!
A fantastic park during the week but a nightmare on the weekends. Lots of people cruising around, drinking and making noise on the weekend. During the week - absolutely delightful. Lots of trees, stream, and a great place to relax and take a nice walk through the park. The Fort is nicely restored, the RV sites are large and well groomed. Just don't go during the weekend!!!!
SeaWind continues to be one of our favorite RV parks. Just got back from another week + at this park and found it is still well maintained, everything ship shape as usual! Staff is great! Keep up the good work.
Very attractive and well maintained park that is close to Cloudcroft. Large sites (some side by side) and some good shade trees. Very quite and off the highway. A peacefull place to stay a while! Park is a summer destination for full time campers who are getting away from the heat of surrounding areas (and states). Now for the downside - no cell phone service within about 10-15 miles of the park. No cable (bring your dish). No store at the park, and the nearest grocery store of any consequence is about an hours drive (better bring what you need). There is a small store within 2 miles that has some essentials. The full time summer guests pretty much stick together in their own little groups and take over the small recreation room at the park, so better bring your own friends with you!
What a great surprise this KOA turned out to be! We limped in when our truck broke down and they were very helpful. Excellent park, very well maintained with ALL the amenities. Super friendly staff, great roads, sites, pool, landscaping (given that it IS the New Mexico desert they have made an extra effort here). Fenced in pet yards (two of them) and a huge pet walk area. They also have a good restaurant, and deliver to your RV! Wish we could have stayed longer than two days but we had to move on.
This is a great, out of the way park that is right on the bay. It's county operated, and the management does an great job of taking care of business (unlike most government run operations!!!). Quite attractive setting and very convenient to the bay. Good boat launch and fishing. Most sites are large (the back-in's) and well landscaped. Hook up's are good. This park fills up entirely for the winter months with "Winter Texans" so book in advance. Some overflow sites do not have sewer hook up. About 18 miles from Kingsville (shopping), so if you like an out of the way place this is it! The Kings Inn restaurant in the little town is excellent, and has been a dining destination in South Texas for many many years. In the "hay day" of the oil business folks would fly in just for dinner! We really enjoy this park and think you will as well. Have never spoken with anyone there that wasn't happy with the experience.
Very nice park, just off the highway. Lots of big trees for shade (helps in the summer). Roads are OK - about an 8 on a 1-10 scale. Sites are attractive and well landscaped and maintained (some are a bit hard to negotiate as they have planned them around the trees - which is nice). Close to town and fairly quiet. Nice office and very clean. Watch out for low hanging trees! I highly recommend this little park!
Older park that could use some more maintenance and upgrading. Nice level grass sites, decent hook up's and roads are fine. Staff seemed OK. Convenient location. Appears to cater to the "Winter Texan" crowd. I could see myself spending the winter at this park (if I didn't already live in Texas). Would stay here again.
I don't see how anyone could complain about this place ("executive area" or lack of an actual "Lake"???). One of the best parks we have ever stayed in - anywhere - period!!! We live close and camp here a couple of time each summer just for fun, to link up with friends traveling through the area, or to use the pool when it hot (and it's always hot down here). Very well done, no expense spared here. Paved roads, nice sites, 1st class hook up's, nice people, convenient to the highway. I think it's the best stop between San Antonio and El Paso.
Pretty nice park, especially considering the available options in the area. Right on the bay, nice water views. The parks needs some work and maintenance, but it's obvious that work is on going. Nice people, very friendly. A little hard to get to and you have to drive through a marginal area - but once inside the fence it's quite nice. Hook up's good, sites adequate (some small) roads OK (some drainage issues - but it is on the ocean after all). Would return.
Another KOA that has seen it's better days! Pretty much a gravel parking lot with small sites that are too close together. We could literally pass a supper plate out our slide window to the RV next to us! Side-by-side sites. Fortunately the neighbors were of good humor as well! Had to keep the shades down 24x7. Sites are not level, roads fairly well kept. No hint of landscaping. Far enough off the road that the traffic noise isn't that bad, and convenient to shopping. Staff was pretty indifferent and didn't seem intelligent.
Nice park, off the highway and a little less noise than many (most) KOA's. Owners seem nice. They are working on upgrading the park and it's coming along nicely. Not really a "destination", but a good stop over. A little over priced. We came for one night and stayed for three. better than 90% of the KOA's I have stayed at. I would return.
The other reviews pretty much cover it, but, I give it a bit more credit - an "A" for effort! One of the better KOA's. This area of Wyoming is not noted for great RV parks. This KOA is trying very very hard. The place is spotless (my mother would approve), people are super nice, and it's convenient. Yes, there is a lot of road noise and the roads are gravel (about an 8 on a 1-10 scale). It's not a destination, but a very good, clean and safe place for a stop over. I would return.
What they call a "pull through site" is more like end-to-end sites that are actually side-by-side. They are very hard to negotiate, poorly situated and would be very hard for a Class A with a tow car to use. The drive is gravel, mud and dirt with plenty of soft spots and pot holes. The hook up's are in poor condition and the TV cable is strung out on top of the ground! The management was indifferent, rates were too high and all-in-all it was not much of a park. It's OK for a quick overnight, but not a destination. I would drive on to Limon if I had to do it over again!
Excellent new park. Super nice owners/managers who are making a big effort to do it right! The park is well kept, with very few if any "seasonal coampers". Close to the highway, but minimal highway noise. New landscaping - give it time. Nice pool and store. All hook-up's are first class. Gravel roads and sites - good shape - still new and will compact better over time. Best choice by far in the Lubbock area - we have tried them all!
Park shows a lot of hard use. Probably was a great spot at one time in the past. Staff was not helpful, food was poor quality. Sites are not well kept and poorly marked. Buildings look to need upkeep. Sorry experience - expected much more. Too bad.
One of the worst KOA's we have ever stayed at. Bad location, run down park that shows lack of maintenance. Roads in poor shape, sites too small for medium size rigs. Staff unkept and indifferent to customers. STRONGLY encourage you to drive on past this one and stay in Cheyenne, Kimbal, NE or Rawlins, WY - those KOA's are pretty darn nice!
Stayed at this park a couple of years ago and sorry to say it has gone down hill. Staff was completely indifferent. Park looks as though it has not been kept up in the past couple of years. Water pressure was so low we had to run on the trailer pump. Voltage issues as well. This WAS a super park, off the beaten path and a very nice setting - lots of trees. Sad to see it go down hill. Owners must be "harvesting" from their reputation and the lack of competition in the area. There is a new KOA opening in Dubois and, since we checked it out, I would suggest it as an alternative.
This is a very nice, little park that is off the highway and quite a good place to stay for a few days. Not a lot available in Dubois - I think this is the best. Nice people, and the park shows care and upkeep (although still evolving).
Very nice park with large, level sites. Well kept - always busy in season. Good location, nice people. Can't say enough good about it. No store, and none close so shop before you come! Some of the sites are side-by-side, and I would try hard to avoid them. Otherwise - close to the top of my list of favorite places.
This park is a "Good Sam" park: but I don't support that rating by any means? It is, however, a lovely place, right on the lake with huge shade trees. Roads are in poor shape and have a lot of pot holes full of water and mud. In the winter time when it's too cold for water sports, it's a super place to stay! In the summer when water sports are going on, it's a nightmare! Wild, unsavory folks. I observed theft from an RV and boat: reported it and no one cared! Lots of noise all through the night. Tent camping right next to RV camping. If you enjoy the crowds, loud noise and activities: stay here. If you want a quiet get away: stay away in the summer!
Like most KOA's, the railroad and highway are in view and close by. Older park. Good store, nice people. Sites are too small and the park shows years of use. Lot's of full time guests (some not so attractive!). Nice indoor pool, typical KOA cabins and some playground equipment. Fairly easy to get to. It's almost at the bottom of my list of places to stay in Lubbock - just above the WalMart parking lot.
Level sites and just off the Interstate. Dusty and well worn park though. Hardly a sign of a tree, but a nice desert view. Sites are quite short for medium to big rigs. No TV (and I mean NO TV). Super nice people, and they have a nice little restaurant with pretty good meals. Gas and diesel fuel is available at a fair price. A good place to stop for the night.
Very noisy and hard to get to with ongoing road construction. This may improve by 2007. Cramped park with lots and lots of full timers. The "pull through" sites are very hard to negotiate. Lot of road noise. Sites are too short for any medium or big rig. OK for overnight in a pinch.
Very good location close to town. Park is very dusty and the roads are not that well maintained. The speed bumps don't seem to help a lot. Way too many "work campers" wandering around. The "lawn mower guy" pelted my truck and RV with rocks both times I have stayed here!!! Picnic tables are brick and concrete and can't be moved to a convenient location on your site. They have an anoying habit of putting everyone close together even when they are almost empty. Park is over priced by about $5-6 for what they offer. However - in spite of the foregoing - pretty good park with full hook up, very nice bath and shower as well as laundry (AC in summer). I will stay again (but wrap my truck & RV in blankets to protect it from more stone chips).
