Van Horn is in the middle of nowhere so there are few options. We stayed here exactly a year ago and the nightly price was $25. I thought that was reasonable. This year the price is $31.50, and that's with the GS discount. This will be the last time we stop for the night in Van Horn. They have priced themselves out of my comfort zone. Although they have all the amenities, I need nothing but electric. The park itself is in good condition. The manager said they had rewired it this past year.
The comments of previous posters is very accurate. This is one of the nicest forest service campgrounds we have ever been in. We have stayed here twice and are amazed that it always seems underused. Perhaps on holiday weekends it might get more use, but we stayed over a summer weekend and there were only 5 rigs in the whole place. It is a gem. The only negative issue is that you have to drive through Minden to get there. There are some very narrow streets with rather tight turns. It's very doable, but you need to be on your toes. We have a 43' fifth wheel pulled by an HDT, plus a car. We fit in many of the sites. Although there are many tall trees, finding a hole for satellite reception is not too difficult. The regular price is only $15 and the senior pass price was $9.50.
This has to be the nicest Forest Service campground we have ever been in. The sites are huge, although all back-ins. There is plenty of room to maneuver so it should not be a problem for anyone. We are 65 feet long and got in easily. We were even lucky enough to find a site where our satellite works fine, although not all sites will work for that. There are large trees, but they are spaced out well. We got the senior rate of $9.50 so you can't beat it for 50 amp with water and huge paved sites.
This is no longer a Passport America park and the price is out of line for the value. It was $29 for 30 amp, $32 for 50 amp. It is right off the interstate so noise is a problem. It's an OK place for an overnight stop, but just not for the price.
This looks like a nice place but they have raised their rates considerably. The price in Passport America showed $18 plus a $3 per day resort fee. They now charge $22.50 plus $3 plus tax. The total was over $28 and this was half price. We said thank you very much and did not stay. This was in October and the park was almost empty.
This is no longer Isle of Capri. It is now Diamond Jacks. We had to unhook and park the truck around the perimeter of the park. The longest space is only about 50 feet long so if you are towing a toad or have a large 5th wheel you may have to park it somewhere other than in your space. Otherwise, it is a fine place to base for a visit to Vicksburg, and the price is very good. We would stay here again.
This park is just a grass field with two rows of hookups. Has some 50 amp sites. There is no gravel, even on the roads, and it would be very easy to get stuck if it were to rain a lot. Our rig is a little over 13 feet tall and we hit several tree branches on the way in. There was no one in the office when we arrived so I called the number in the Passport America Guide and left a message on the answering machine. When the owner came to collect in the evening he was less than friendly. He said the rate was $18 and I replied that I had Passport America. It was obvious from his reaction that he was not happy that he had to give me a discount. He said the price was $12 then. I told him the guide said it was $9 and he said there was an additional charge if you had more than one A/C and that if I didn't like it I could go elsewhere. Of course, I was already set up and settled in so I was not about to argue for $3. We will not be back. It was worth $10-$12 for a place to park, but it is way off the beaten path and it needs a lot more development and attention before it will be much of anything. My conversation with the owner convinced me that no more money will be spent on the place until he has more money coming in to pay the expenses. Sounds like a Catch-22.
