Large, pricey KOA but one of the better ones we have stayed in -- KOAs certainly vary in quality. Office help was friendly but not particularly knowledgeable about the area. We had a tire on our travel trailer that had to be replaced, and after some discussion among the staff, directions to a tire place was finally given. The park has good, long sites so you can stay hooked up. Wi-Fi and cable works well. The park is on the highway and kind of remote --nothing within walking distance. Nice place to walk the dog along the Fountain River. We would stay here again.

A little tricky getting to this park, if you're coming from the south. We had called ahead and had a reservation. Office help seemed a little disorganized, but we were finally shown to our site. It was Labor Day and very crowded. The office store was out of ice. Pool was full of kids, but we were put away from that area and it only became an issue when I walked the dog. The dog park was right by the pool area, and my dog was nervous with all the children noise. Sites are long enough and each have a picnic table and one tree. Cable TV and WiFi worked well. Good for an overnight. We would stay here again.

Got a warm welcome when we arrived. We had called ahead to make a reservation. The office was clean, with some modest supplies for sale. We were shown to our site, which was right next to the bathhouse. Since it was so convenient, I did try out the bath house and found everything clean and comfortable. There was a very small grass spot beside the site for our dog, and a longer walk area along the back road. We saw deer in the field behind the park. Pleasant for a one-nighter. A couple of good restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store. Wi-Fi and cable worked easily. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for a week and hope to come back for a week again next summer. Quiet, beautiful park. Huge back-in sites. Big trees and mountain air. We enjoyed just sitting outside and birdwatching every morning. Had to wear sweaters in July -- wonderful! The management is friendly and accommodating. Secure gated park, you're supplied with a password. Wi-Fi is awesome. Cell reception is good. There is no television without a satellite dish, so be forewarned if you're a TV junkie. This is a great park for relaxing and getting away from it all. Easy, beautiful drive to Taos or Wheeler Peak. All-in-all, a great vacation spot.

Rough, rough road leading into the park. Lady at desk was quite helpful, gave us a choice of sites and an escort. The sites were pull-throughs but very tight. We were lucky to get a spot as the park filled up later. Good area to walk dog. Pool was cold but clean. Laundry facilities could use an update, but were serviceable. There's a nice store with essentials and gift items. Television reception with our antenna was poor. Adequate Wi-Fi. We would stay here again, especially since there's not much else to chose from in this area. However, the entrance road really needs attention.

We called ahead for reservations since we knew we would be arriving late. The lady on the phone was friendly and patient with my cell phone breaking up during our conversation. We had a reservation kit in the drop box as she promised. Map was provided with clear instructions to our site. Wi-Fi was supposed to be included but we were not given a password to connect. We were unable to access any television stations at all. The park was relatively clean, but there seemed to be a lot of fulltimers here with lots of clutter around their sites. Also encountered the loud motorcycle someone else mentioned. OK for an overnight. Think I might skip Fort Stockton altogether if given a choice.

Friendly grounds manager. Gave Good Sam discount. The park is clean and well-maintained, but it is all gravel, with just a small strip of green space beside each site and in the center. We had a bit of difficulty leveling the trailer. The gravel kept slipping under the jacks, even with the blocks we use. There is absolutely no shade and with temps in the high 90s, it took a while for the a/c to take hold. A good park for passing through, although there seemed to be a lot of long-termers. In a few years when the saplings they've planted have time to grow, this park will be much more inviting. Good WiFi and cell reception.

This is an oasis in the desert, and one of the best places we have stayed in New Mexico. Pristine grounds, green grass, there's a concrete picnic table inside a covered cabana at each site. Sites are large and far apart. A regular RV park would put four sites in the space you have here with one. Plenty of trash receptacles nearby. There is a campground host, although the payment is on the honor system. The bathroom area has just been remodeled. It was a pleasure to wake up to birdsong and jackrabbits in the morning. Much recommended. We will definitely stay here again.

Fun, fun, fun place for a family vacation. The web site has a map of the RV Park. When I made the reservation, I was able to request the site I preferred. The waterpark is the destination and the RV park is to make it easy for campers to visit the waterpark. Sites have lots of shade trees and are within an easy walk to the waterpark. Admission to the park is in addition to the site rental. The park was kind of dark at night, and the analog television was iffy. But we enjoyed the waterpark and will stay here again when we visit next time.

We were shown to our site by a friendly and helpful man from the office, and were given a little welcome bag. The campground is clean. The staff is friendly. However, the spots are tiny. We could barely open our slide-out and once we did, we were literally inches from our neighbor's slide-out. The Wi-Fi worked for about 30 minutes and then never again for the whole time we were here. The pool was full to the gills and noisy so we avoided it. There is a clubhouse where pancakes are served in the morning, but we didn't partake of that either. Nice park across the street for dog walking. We would stay here again but only on our way to another destination.

The spaces here are very tight. Our slide-out nearly touched the slide-out of our neighbor. The park was full when we were here, and the manager was not friendly. She refused to give us a Good Sam discount because I did not have my card. I did have my membership number, but that was not enough for her. The park is located on the Medina River, and a walk along the bank is easily accessible. Also very good proximity to town, within walking distance to restaurants and other entertainment. Bathhouse is very clean, attached to community room. We noticed that there are planned activities. We stayed two nights, but because of the close together sites and the unfriendly reception, we will look elsewhere when visiting Bandera in future.

What a fun place to stay! Amenities are sparse in the RV Park, but whatever is lacking is more than made up for by the gorgeous swimming pool and state park surrounds. This is a true oasis in the desert. No sewer hookup is available but there is a dump station. Showers and restroom are old but conveniently located and handicap friendly. The park rangers went out of their way to give us the best available pull-through site, which made it easy to leave our towing vehicle hitched and ready to depart early the next morning. We will definitely be back.

The swimming pool was not open yet when we were here, and there was some trouble with the broadband internet. Otherwise, this was a pleasant stay. We were here for three nights. A little noisy during the day, but this is a great place to use as base camp for visiting Big Bend, Fort Davis, McDonald's Observatory, etc. Immaculate restroom and laundry facility. Managers were very accommodating and friendly. We will stay here again if we are in the area.

This park has brand new owners, and they are very accommodating. There are lots of shade trees and plenty of places to walk your pet. The park is quiet and off the beaten path. Needs better signs directing traffic to the location. The owners said they had signs ordered, so this shouldn't be a problem in the future. Easy access to south San Antonio, Lackland AFB etc. We encountered a lot of flies, which we believe came from an ill-kept pasture behind the park, not part of the park. Good lighting, and satellite dishes at every site and individual gas lighting. Concrete pads made leveling easy. The owners have grand plans so this is a park to watch. We would stay here again.

The park has only been open for a year and half, so trees that have been planted haven't had a chance to mature. This park has it all: friendly staff, a clean pool, fitness room, meeting room, an area for large groups, walking trail, birding area, huge pull throughs, with enough room for the largest rig, plus a boat and vehicle besides. Very close to Amistad Lake. Wi-Fi was super fast and effortless. 125 cable channels, also effortless. We will definitely stay here again.
