Calling this park a "resort" is really stretching the imagination. The office looks like an electronics warehouse and the park is nothing but gravel everywhere with no trees or grass. It is right next to a busy highway and the sign is hard to see unless you have almost passed. If you can stay elsewhere I would recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here before. It's a great location just south of Dumas, Tx. The staff is very friendly. The land is flat and all spots are pull thru which is very nice not having to back into a spot. The roads in the park looked good. Apparently Dumas had gotten the most rain in August than they have ever had in the past 30 years. Overall, a great stay - I would recommend! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Far from a resort. Second time at this RV campground. All dirt and at this time of year, a big muddy mess. No way to keep rig clean, inside or out. All the rugs and mats didn't keep the fine silt out. As careful as we were unable to keep inside of tow vehicle clean, as well. Staff extremely friendly. Active duty and permanently disabled military receive a substantial discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park does not fit my definition of a resort. After we drove in, we saw that the entire park was a mud hole with deep ruts where people had been stuck. Sites had gravel on them, but the roads were just red dirt. The office looked dark, but I went up there. The owner was sitting in the dark in what didn't look like a very inviting office--chairs stacked around, etc. We paid the Good Sam rate, and the owner told me that the Internet probably wouldn't work, and he was right. When we arrived, there were only two sites available, but we found one that was level. We prayed that it wouldn't rain during the night, and the owner showed us on the map of the campground how to pull around and get back on the highway without getting stuck. He was very nice and helpful. As others have mentioned, the water connection is down on the ground, making it necessary to get on your knees to connect. We do not plan to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I did not see a pool, nor use their bathrooms or laundry facilities. This is definitely NOT a resort. The owner acknowledges 'problems' with the WiFi; there is no functional Wifi to the campground. You can connect to his local router, but the network will not allow you on. The owner has a convoluted explanation for this. The short story is he doesn't provide internet service because he doesn't have business class internet connection. Check-in involved paying the money then hunting for an open campsite. That was a mission to dodge large puddles in dips in the poorly graveled roads, including getting around the numerous 3/4 ton trucks parked in the roadway without dragging the car through a lake of puddle water. This is NOT a place you would want to navigate after dark! The site I found (close to the office) was level--a positive. I was able to pull in one TV station from Amarillo to get news on the storms rolling through the area. The rate paid includes Good Sam discount. Overall, I think it is too much. I could find better overnight parking on a closed gas station lot in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you find yourself near Dumas and really needing to stop for the day, this RV site will probably meet your essential needs. Note however, it is a work in progress, and is not a resort. Our reservations, made a week before were not honored, but the operator did find us one space for our overnight stay. The internet did not work and the site and facilities were fly infested. The owner seems to be making a financial effort to upgrade the sites, and was helpful. We will plan to stop at another site the next time we are within 50 miles of Dumas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because of favorable reviews, but make no mistake. This place is a DUMP. A very depressing dump. All dirt and gravel, not an ounce of grass or landscaping. A lot of working people live here, and I feel sorry that the owner can't make this place a little nicer. Resort -- HA! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The RV park was in a good location just south of Dumas. There was a building with an indoor heated pool. We went swimming which was nice. The owner was very nice. We needed help and hw helped us with whatever we needed. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly new RV Park, but still needs some work. We were there one night while traveling to our destination. The owner was a super nice guy. Unfortunately we got all hooked-up then discovered there was no power to the pedestal. My bad for not checking it first. We pulled forward to another space and everything worked well, but had to hook-up in the dark at that point, in the cold mid 30's. Good thing there was no wind. He needs to add a lot more gravel to the roads and spaces. There is way too much dirt, which could have been mud if it had rained. It is set back from the highway enough that noise was not an issue. No vegetation at all. Just dirt and gravel. The power pedestals were interesting. The owner saw them at a marina. They were originally designed for marinas. All of them were lit which was a nice touch, especially hooking up in the dark. They all had 20, 30 and 50 amp on each one. The water connection was a bit too low to the ground so I had to get down on the dirt to access it. Probably a good thing if you were hooking up from a boat. The power and water pressure were good. No cable. The Wi-Fi had a strong signal, but I never could connect to it. Not sure if too many were using it or if it just did not work. Every space is pull through and fairly level. I would be curious to see the progress he makes in another year or two. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Considering the price (donations), this was a convenient stop using the electricity that was offered. Loud trains but nice little park and walking area for the dogs. We would stop again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great one night free stopover provided by City of Dumas, TX. Donations are accepted in the box by the "rules" sign near the water/dump stations. We had no problem filling our water tank and using dump station. However, two of the electric boxes were out of order when we were there. Nearby train traffic can be distracting, but did not really bother us in the night. During the summer this park is a popular stopover for Texans heading to/from the cool mountains of New Mexico & Colorado, so a mid-afternoon arrival might be in order during that period as it can get crowded. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is what it is--electricity provided by the city in a quiet park. Our electrical hookup wouldn't provide the needed power for our 50 amp motorhome, so we ran our generator. It was a good quiet place to stay and we would stay there again if passing thru Dumas and needing a place to park overnight. It is much better than the Walmart parking lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price is right! The town of Dumas provides a free park, complete with 30 amp and 50 amp hookups for RV travelers, just north of 87, just west of 287. There is also a threaded water spigot, as well as a dump station and trash bin. It is a level, paved lot, with about 25 electrical posts available. There is also a rest room with flush toilets and cold water sink. No showers or WiFi, but cellphone and over-air TV reception was good. The town asks that you limit your stay to one night, and there is a post for you to donate money towards upkeep of the park, but you are not required to leave a donation if you don't want to. A train line is quite close by, and VERY loud train whistles occurred until about 8 pm at night and beginning about 4:15 am the next morning, which might be a factor for some people. There were about 15 rigs in the park the midweek night I stayed. I gladly left a donation, because I would have felt guilty otherwise, since I was running my AC. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is no charge for a 24 hour stay. There is a pay box for voluntary contributions. Water and a dump point is available. No drugs, minimal railroad noise. OK for what its there for - a night off the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The City of Dumas RV park is a parking lot with electrical hookups. Dump station on the side of the parking lot. Adjacent to the playground and wooded park. This is a good place for getting off the road and staying one night. There is a donation box by the dump station. Our Verizon cell phones and Mi-Fi worked very good. We heard some trains before bedtime and some the next morning but either they didn't run or didn't wake us up during the night. Didn't have any problems or see any drug transactions. A good place if you are passing thru and need a place to stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Was going to stay here but the drug dealers have taken over this park. We were only there an hour an watched two drug deals go down. We were the only RV in the park, I suppose everyone knew this but us. We left before it got dark and moved to a pay park across town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cute little park on the outskirts of Dumas, TX. Free space with electric was nice. Portable restrooms were clean. Near railroad tracks, but no trains that night. Did hear some in the morning. Road construction on 1st Street created a large rut in the driveway access to the park. Go slow! We scraped bottom going in. On the way out, went very slow and no scraping. Only a few other occupants were here. They had large motorhomes pulling towed vehicles and/or trailers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a city park with free overnight camping with electric hookup. It is just a paved parking lot beside a nice city park. The area surrounding is industrial and a railroad track. I felt safe there and the police did occasionally patrol. No amenities except the electric but it was FREE! I think this is a great service by Dumas that more cities should provide. While we overnighted there, we spent money at a restaurant, Wal-Mart, and fueled up. The city recouped its electricity cost from my sales taxes! There was no charge for overnight parking although the web site says additional nights are $10 each. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
