The actual campground is more off the freeway than the map shows. Still it’s not THAT far. The campground has partial hookups (electrical and water). No WiFi or sewer (due to the cave). The gift shop is amazingly fun. The cave tour was definitely worth the $20/person. Our guide Lacey was a rockstar. Dress lightly for the cave. We came out soaked!
Extremely close to the entrance to Big Bend Park. (6 miles) Full and partial service available. Some sundries available in their store (ice, drinks, beer, snacks). WIFi is a very welcome addition, since Verizon cell service is ZERO bars. They have a good sized DVD collection available for viewing while you stay. The gal behind the desk (Payton, I think) was very very helpful. Definitely a place worth staying at while you explore Big Bend
If you RV enough, you will run into these places. The staff HATE travelers, and they hate their job. Fort Stockton RV is NOT one of these places!!! From the first contact with office staff while making reservations, to the check in, to the Maintance guy (Joe) stopping by. This place ROCKS! This is a full service park. 30/50 amp with full hookup and Breakfast every morning. Fort Stockton IS in the middle of no where, but if you find yourself half way between San Antonio and El Paso on I-10, make this your stop.
We arrived after close of business and dark. The camp sites are clearly marked. In the morning try e park staff were super friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent full service RV park. The hook ups are in excellent repair. This particular KOA offers hot food delivered to the sites in Lou of eating inside the facility. Despite the name, it is quite a hike from Carlsbad Caverns if that is your destination. It is very close to Beantly Lake and a very quiet setting. The pads are gravel but level. Excellent staff. Would stay again!
We arrived late, our info was available on the office window. Sites are clearly marked and easy to access. Park is generally gravel. Hookups are clean and in excellent repair. Speaking of repair, they have a RV parts store on the premises.
The people who manage this park could run Disneyland. Very friendly and helpful. The amenities of the park are very good. Full hookups, laundry, WiFi and ice available. The down side is, the trees are few and so is the shade. We were here in November, but I could see this place getting HOT in August. It has been reported the park is near a major highway, but our spot at the back of the park is very quiet. These folks are super dog friendly. Will definitely be staying here again.
Near the center of Sedona. Park carries ice and has propane available for delivery once a week. Due to the layout of the park your assigned space is given to you BEFORE your arrival. This should not be a issue, except in our case. I received a voice mail that was transcribed as site 70. Upon arrival we went to site 70. Checked in. No issues. About a hour after sunset, a late arrival pulled outside site 70. They were told they were assigned site 70. We showed them our voice mail transcript that said we were in 70. I did however have the incoming phone number from the voice mail. About 20 minutes one of the park staff showed up. Demanded to know our name. Then wanted to see our “papers” long story, the VM was transcribed poorly. We should have gone to site 72. Bottom line, the attitude toward the park staff was enough to give this place a One Star. I can’t however downgrade this beautiful place because of the attitude of one horrible rude staff member. You have been warned.
I had my reservations about going here. I thought would see the park in 20-30 minutes. We took almost three hours to drive the 25 miles through the park. Some areas are very austere, however the OTHER areas more than make up for it. The Petrified Forest is NOT a bunch of rocks laying around. (Ok there are plenty of those too) but awe inspiring views and colors that will blow you away. Please, if you are traveling Route 66 (I-40) and you are near Holbrook AZ, you will not be disappointed.
A full service RV park. Sites are pull through. Cable TV, WiFi plus full hook ups. Parking area is totally hard packed gravel. Few trees. Would prolly be extremely hot in the summer
While approaching the park most first timers would think “What canyon?” For miles in all directions outside of Amarillo are fields and wind Turbines. When you make that first turn after entering the park WOW is such a weak descriptor. The view is spectacular. 2 miles wide, 800 feet deep and 12 miles long. Absolutely fantastic! The park is very linear. One way in and a loop at the far end. Many trails (equestrian hiking and biking) are available. The maps provided are top notch. The have a park store (called The Trading Post) about 4 miles into the park. Gas, diesel, propane, hot food service. It was extremely handy. To be fair there was one draw back to this park, I’ve never seen as many flies anywhere. Apparently this is a common situation. Here are some of our pictures. ￼
Excellent campground/state park. Lots of trees, trails and roads. Interesting CCC structures from the 30’s. The pool was closed, but it was November…. very friendly staff. Lots of deer and wildlife
Campground very clean. C of E staff very friendly. Not nearly as much lake traffic as Lake Belton or Stillhouse Hollow (both which are near by. Lake is kinda remote from gas, food and such, but would absolutely go there again. Very dog friendly!!!
This place could do no wrong (we all remember our first time, right?). The staff were very kind and helpful. Propane filling is not intuitive. Very pretty campground.
We arrived late at night, so didn’t get to see much. Very easy to navigate the park. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and kind!
Bottom line, beautiful park. Good facilities, nice camp store, the River is RIGHT THERE. I would give this place 5 stars except due to the location next to the river, the country road runs right next to the camp grounds. Lots of noisy motorcycle traffic all night.
Right on Waco lake, the picnic tables were set on concrete pads with solid shelter covers. Many trails to ride and walk on. There is a marina with food facilities nearby, however was closed for the season.
The staff were super friendly, and extremely helpful. Our timing was not the best. Covid prevented us from using the facilities, road construction and park construction. No cable available during renovations. Pretty views of the Colorado river, however zero access to the river. The lack of shade made the RV very hot. Again, our choice of dates.
The park is designed with small loops for 15-20 camp sites in each loop. Very little traffic right by the individual spots. Easy in and out of park.
Very nice staff. Beautiful tree lined park. Lots of shade, sun and water. Very good store on premises. Only drawback is the park is long and narrow, the access road is right beside the camp sights. Lots of motorcycle traffic at all hours.
