This is an older park, but it is clean, meaning there is no trash all over the place. It is relatively junky because there seem to be a lot of monthly rentals. Our air conditioner drowned out most of the sounds of the airplanes. We were just passing through and for an overnight place I think it is fine. With our kids we wouldn't plan on staying there for long. There just didn't seem to be enough for them to do.

Love this park. We keep coming back because it is clean, peaceful and beautiful. They are always improving things you can actually see. Newest things are fire rings at all deluxe sites, no more keys to the bathrooms they have keypads, and the premium sites with extra stuff. They say they are also working on putting an activities program together for both winter and summer beginning in January. We also like the fact that the owners don't tolerate rude, obnoxious adults, children, or pets. You don't play by the rules here, you don't stay. Still have to say that the drainage in the park when it rains is not that great and would like to see them improve the river access more. Will return again.

Wow, this place is beautiful! Their customer service is impeccable. I wish they'd had a swimming pool but we learned that there will be one here by the end of this summer. Their sites are all dirt/gravel but then again so is every other park here in Santa Fe. The trees provide very nice privacy between the sites and the weather here is incredible. You are aways out from the shopping in the heart of Santa Fe, but the drive is pretty and not difficult at all. They are liberal with their maps and are happy to give you any directions you might need. We decided to stay an extra night here and the office staff was very accommodating to our request even though they had to move another person. We promise to be back! Will recommend this park to anyone and everyone!

We missed this park the first time around and drove 30 miles north to Balmorea state park before we were sure we'd gone too far. There is absolutely no signage for the park anywhere except at the entrance to the park. When we finally arrived, the office was closed. We were left a plain white sheet of paper with a site number, our name, and no directions to it. Fortunately a very nice monthly camper was out walking his dog and directed us to our site. There we discovered that there are only 3 sites in the whole park that have 30amp electric hookups, everything else has 50amp so you better have a pigtail. We didn't, but the nice dog man was kind enough to loan us one. Interestingly enough all the sewer risers stick about 6 inches above the ground so when you dump your tank you must help it along so to speak. We learned that the park has been foreclosed on and is for sale by the bank. The woman who "manages" the park is paid by the bank and could care less about the customer service or reputation of it. Everytime we went to check in there was a sign saying she'd be back later. Finally at 6pm the day after we arrived we finally caught her to give her the funds we owed. The weather here is amazing and the park has great potential but the people who built according to the longtime residents of Fort Davis say they had no idea what they were doing (this is very obvious with the electric hookups and sewer risers). The contractor whose doing some repair work here and there doesn't know what their doing either. When comparing this park with the others in the area this is definitely a cleaner place and more open (no shade trees though and still watch out for the wind). Fort Davis is a very cute little town with some cool shops, lots of history, and a very cool McDonald Observatory! San Solomon springs pool at Balmorea State park is a must. We would stay here again, but hope for a better experience.

We were one of only 4 rigs each of the 2 nights we stayed there. While there was an office on site at the RV park it is not in use, you had to go up the hill and across the street to check-in or get any information. We pulled in late the first night and had no idea where to go so we just pulled into the first available site. This site had ants larger than I've ever seen anywhere, and their bite is just as bad. We then moved to another site where we stayed, but when we let the folks in the front office know that their water spouts were leaking on both sides (just as a courtesy to them-it didn't bother us), we were informed that site was closed for maintenance. There are no trees large enough to provide even a hint of shade (temperatures were 116 and 118 the 2 days we were there) and the wind is ferocious so don't consider putting your awning out. Although there is a swimming pool on the rv park grounds it wasn't clean enough to swim in. Lajitas is quite a distance from the entrance to Big Bend National park, but right next to the entrance to Big Bend State Park. Terlingua is where all the tours are out of and is at least 16 miles from Lajitas with all the winds and curves which slow you down tremendously when you're trying to get anywhere. The nearest gas station is in Terlingua with gas at approximately $.25 cents more than what you can find in Alpine. The Far Flung Outdoor tour Camp 360 was awesome and so informational! I would recommend that if you aren't partaking in alot of the activities at the resort like the spa or golf, stay in Terlingua.

I almost called back and cancelled my reservation after a very arrogant man took my information, but I didn't know the options for parks in this part of Houston is limited. It turned out to be a nice, clean facility, but with a rather sterile feeling. I was concerned that the indoor spa is in the same room with the pool table, exercise equipment and meeting room. The spa has no enclosure, no fence, no gate so please be careful with small children! The park isn't in the greatest part of Houston, but it is extremely close to Reliant Stadium, which is why we chose to stay there. It does have very nice security system indicative of the owner's vast experience with public mini-storage facilities. We would stay here again.

New ownership doing a very nice job of bringing the park up to date. Roads are still narrow. Breakfast is good. We didn't like the fact that it is so close to I-35 or the adult movie theatre. The proximity to downtown is excellent.

This is a great park! We will definitely return. The amenities are excellent, the staff is very friendly, and the park is extremely clean. All the sites are concrete and the landscaping is beautiful. Because we were here in October the lack of shade trees wasn't that bad.

Beautiful, quiet, clean campground. Nice shade trees with very friendly staff and owners. They have a great wi-fi system and a nice indoor swimming pool. Apparently the owners had a problem this summer with an employee couple telling people they were in charge of the park and handling things in an extremely unprofessional manner, but they are gone now. There was a $10.00 cash deposit on the key for the restrooms but we got it back when we left. One thing we did really like was that the nightly rate we paid included both of us and our 3 kids. Our site wasn't as level as we would like, but the new owners are in the process of releveling all of them and making big improvements elsewhere too. We will definitely come back!
