After much of the last six months spent at RV parks with gravel/dirt sites, this was like a breath of fresh air. Shaded by plenty of trees, this grassy park is just a lovely place to spend some time. RVers should know right off that there was nearly two miles of washboard-rutted dirt road, not very dusty, and fine if you go very slow. Any rigs longer than 35 feet might have trouble maneuvering the turns and hill. There are about 30 sites, four of them with concrete slabs. All have electric 20/30 and some sites have water available but most are on the opposite side from the electric hookup. Most sites have picnic tables and firepits. There is a volleyball court and a large covered picnic area. The bathrooms and showers are basic, but clean. The camp host makes it his job to see that everyone is welcome and comfortable. Even though the train is about 100 feet away, it is up an incline and can hardly be heard. There is no traffic noise. We would definitely stay here again if in the area, maybe for a longer period next time. There is a fishing pond about 1/4 mile from the camping area and it is well stocked with bass and catfish. A Kansas fishing license is required. It's a wonderful place for pets as well. The gate to the park is locked at 10:00PM and unlocked at 7:00AM. There is limit of 14 days at a time.
This is a nice, very clean park. There are 38 sites, 30 extra-large pull through sites for $25/night ($20 a night if you're staying a week or more). There are 8 back-in sites that cost less, but with metered electric. There are no frills here, just a nice comfortable place to spend a couple nights. The showers are big and the water is hot. Nice laundry facilities ($1.50/load)and a hot tub. AT&T phones worked great as did the park WiFi (it was down one day and as soon as we reported the problem it wax fixed). There is no on-site manager/owner. Instead, you chose your own site and about 5:00 PM the owner/manager comes and collects. One negative was we were not allowed to set up our dog exercise pen outside the RV. This is the first park we have been to that wouldn't allow this. As it was it was so windy and hot, we couldn't be outside anyway, but it's worth mentioning. Their "book exchange" was really just about a dozen books, most looked at least 10 years old. There was no real "club house" per se so no TV or exercise equipment. It is the best place in Liberal to spend a night and get off the highway. The trains run about every hour, day and night, and the horn is loud, but it didn't bother us. We would stay here again if in the area. The price we paid reflects a one-week stay.
Although I guess I have to rate it as a "2" as there are amenities like laundry, showers, and WiFi, I am very reluctantly doing so. This is a derelict park with old mobile homes and RVs along with just a few newer models. We have a vintage RV so I am usually pretty liberal with my judgement of RVs, but this place was just ridiculous. I had called the day before and was told they had a space available and she'd mark it with a orange flag. When we arrived no one was in the office and neither of the two sites available had an orange flag on it. So we first chose a site in the back with a nice shade tree but found it full of broken windshield glass. The second site was unlevel and our 28 foot rig jutted out into the dusty roadway. Some sites had very old picnic tables in dire need of repair. I guess kids would be welcome, but I wouldn't let them out of the rig. Just too darned dangerous. There are some things I could forgive, but garbage lying around was just not acceptable. There was a train track just across the street but that didn't bother me as I like trains. It was loud though, and that might put others off. This park was built in the mid 1960s by the parents of the current. It was a hot mess and I would never return. I'd rather dry camp in the Walmart parking lot. After we started hooking up, we could see this was not a safe place to be for us or our three small dogs. We left to find a more suitable park, and we are really not that fussy.
We needed a place to overnight for laundry facilities and dump site. This fit the bill perfectly. The host/owner was very friendly and helpful. The laundry room although clean, was not finished and had a few hanging wires. We were not bothered by road noise, but we were the furthest rig from the road. Our mobile AT&T WiFi and cell phones worked fine. There was a lovely little building with the words "Got Books?" on a sign outside, which was set aside for a book/magazine exchange. There was an exercise room and a TV room, but the equipment older. The rate we paid reflects Passport America/Escapees rate. He also gives discounts to veterans and senior citizens. We would camp here again if in the area.
This was a very nice surprise, and we just accidentally came upon it. The City of Dumas has made this park available at no charge to travelers passing through. Although the website says "water" it didn't work. But, the price sure is right! You can make a donation if you'd like. The sites are all pull-through. There is nothing fancy here. It's adjacent to the city park and the sites are all on an asphalt parking lot. There are picnic areas in the park as well as BBQs and a playground for the kids. There is a sheltered picnic area as well. Our AT&T cell phones and mobile WiFi worked great. You are right next to the railroad tracks, but it hasn't bothered us at all, in fact the area was rather quiet. There is a dump site located on the east side of the parking lot next to a dumpster for your trash. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area. We talked to another camper nearby and he's been coming here at least once a year for the last eight years. I downgraded my rating to an "8" as there was no water available.
This was a small park, but perfect for our needs. There are many long term residents, so be sure to call ahead for availability. The best space is #11, where we were, as it is very private. There were grassy areas and picnic tables at each site. We were able to put up an exercise pen for our three small dogs on the grassy area and there was plenty of room. The campground WiFi worked great as did our AT&T cell phones. There was a nice clubhouse with TV, book/DVD exchange/loan (including DVDs of recently released movies), kid's toys, laundry and showers. Everything was clean. There was no extra charge for the showers and the the laundry (which we did not use)were very clean. They had a small snack bar,on the honor system. We had a friend in the area meet us there and it was just the perfect place to visit. We heard to road noise at all. The rate we paid reflects a 15% Escapees discount. The owner who lives in an adjacent home, was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night, but it's nice enough to spend a week or more here. We'd definitely stay again if we're in the area.
This is a small, friendly park, out of the way from the other parks on Pine St in downtown Deming. When we arrived the helpful, friendly camp hosts were waiting for us at the gate and escorted us to our spot. We were given a packet of info of the Deming area, a nice pen, and the password for the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi worked wonderfully the entire time we stayed here. I work as an editor out of our RV so to have reliable internet access was very important. There was a nice picnic table at each site. At first I was disappointed that we were parked in the "short term" pull-through RV sites in the gravel area before the main campground and clubhouse. But I quickly discovered this area was just as nice as it could be with very friendly neighbors (permanent residents). The clubhouse was adequate with TV, videos, and a book exchange. Although we were just off the freeway we could barely hear the traffic or the trains just on the other side of the freeway. Other reviewers have mentioned the 2-1/2 miles of dirt road to get to the campsite. This can be avoided by driving to Deming and coming in from the west. By using this route you only have less than half a mile of dirt road and even on windy days it wasn't a problem. We did have a lot of wind while here, but that's to be expected in March and April. Several days it was so bad we stayed in the RV all day. The park is pet friendly and they let us use the exercise pen for our small dogs. We would be happy to stay here again if in the area. The price reflects a month stay as Passport America members. They also offer Escapee and Happy Camper discounts.
The posted rate reflects the Passport America discount which is good for two nights. A monthly stay is $125 + electricity ($100 deposit). This little campground is away from the train and freeway noise one deals with at most of the Deming RV parks. It is located 15 miles north of Deming itself, and there is a 1.8 mile very washboard-rutted gravel/dirt road leading to the park. First the good: All sites are pull through and shaded by mulberry trees in season. There is a lovely clubhouse with cable TV, pool table, kitchen area, laundry, book and DVD exchange, and the nicest shower/restroom combination we've ever encountered. The laundry room is an "honor" system. $1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry. You pay when you leave. The surrounding countryside is very rural/ranch land, including cattle next door. If you have horses you are able to corral them here. Friendly and helpful owners. The stars at night are incredible. It is also very pet friendly. The bad: It gets very windy here, so bad that you aren't able to be outside your rig or the clubhouse for any amount of time. Gusts rocked our rig many, many times. Our internet access and cell phone service with AT&T was spotty to non-existent. That said, we'd probably return if we were in the area again; when, hopefully when it is less windy.
This is a nice park off I-5. The spaces are grassy but fairly small. Laundry facilities were nice and the showers would rate a 9/10. Really it just had the basics and nothing fancy but very clean. The park is within walking distance to a 6-7 restaurants. Freeway noise but not too horribly loud. Would recommend as a nice place to spend a night when you are driving I-5. Price reflects Passport America discount.
Small park in close proximity to I-5 and several restaurants. Facilities were adequate but nothing special. Views of Mount Shasta were incredible. Good for a stay of a day or two. There was freeway noise but it wasn't that big a deal. The price reflects the Passport America rate.
Oh my, where to begin. The only reason we chose this park was we were in the general vicinity and had already had a long day drive. This park was about 10 miles off the highway and it had been raining for several days. First complaint was having to pay $2 each for small dogs that weren't even going to leave our motor home. The second, and main reason for the low rating was that this was a mud pit. And I do mean mud pit. The fall rains rendered this campground pretty much unusable. Just hooking up the water and power was a chore due to the slippery mud. We could hardly wait to leave at daybreak. We would never stay again. The only positive thing was it was near the lovely 18th Century Mission San Antonio de Padua, which was certainly worth the drive to tour.
This park, remotely located in the southern Coachella Valley, 30 miles south of Palm Springs, is a most wonderful place to stay. We had found info online and had intended to stay only two stays, then decided to stay the week, but ended up staying a month. This RV Park has it all, and for a very reasonably nightly rate, especially for Passport America members. Green grass abounds as do many citrus trees (orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine) as the park was build in the middle of an citrus orchard. The fruit is free for the picking and we enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice every morning during our stay. From the morning coffee and pastries (homemade by our host, Ann), to the afternoon happy hour arund the fire pit, this park was friendly and accommodating. On Valentine’s Day we were treated to a wonderful poolside barbeque and putt-putt boat races (that clearly proves you can’t take the boy out of the man). The public areas (pool, hot tub, showers, clubhouse, rest rooms) were very clean and the entire park was kept clean and tidy. Instead of the usual desert RV park with sites on dirt/sand, beautiful green grass surrounded the sites. The park was pet friendly and everyone picked up after their dogs. The clubhouse contained a nice book swap area, game tables, and cable TV. There was also a weekly poker game. The evening happy hour enabled everyone to get to know one another and we found many RVers have come back year after year and stay the entire winter season. The partial hookups (E/W) were in a grassy area and some need a wee bit of leveling. The FHUs are on concrete slabs. There are also sites around the lovely pond area. Most sites had their own orange tree. You could literally put your hand out the window and pick the sweetest oranges I’ve ever tasted. There is a dump site on the premises and an LP truck will fill your tank with a quick phone call. The only negatives, and they would not be a factor in us returning, was the Wi-Fi being down for a few days and the road noise. Oasis Palms is right by busy highway 86, and with trucks traveling this road day and night, some might be put off by the noise. We weren’t. The positives so outweigh the negatives here. The price we paid reflects the partial hookup Passport America rate.
We stayed here for six weeks and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly and very clean. About 70% of spaces are permanent campers. It was very quiet. Propane available on site. Our monthly rate was $400. We aren't towing a vehicle and the only negative thing was that it's a two-mile walk to the grocery store. That said, we had plenty of offers for rides.
