Campground near I-20, but freeway/interstate noise is tolerable. Spaces are close. Most campers were living there, working the oil/gas fields. Yes - the few yards from the frontage road to the RV park entry is full of potholes, but it's a short distance (just drive SLOW). Hosts were very nice and helpful.
Nice little place. Very nice hosts. Grounds were very well maintained. Sites were gravel and level with cement strips and grass between sites, offering you privacy. Very quiet area a little south of town. Lots to do in this little town of Llano. Lots of history and nice folks.
Our RV group had a small rally here. We chose to park in the trees, so weekly rate was higher ($258), which we felt was a bit pricey. Site was gravel and level. They offer NO discounts on weekly rates. Our space was easy to get in and out of, even with our tow attached. Close in to town and all the activities that Fredericksburg offers.
Just camped here one night passing through. It's about four miles East of Ft. Stockton - kinda out by itself. We had a good, level site (#56). We didn't hear much freeway/interstate noise. This time of year, not much going on here, but it was safe.
We just stayed here overnight. It's easy to get to and easy to maneuver around. We were given a HUGE site so we didn't have to unhook our tow. And our site had it's own decorated 'picnic' area. The Llano River was VERY low, so it wasn't impressive. Plenty of space between campsites to afford you privacy. No railroad tracks, no airplanes overhead and no street noise. Nice little place. The hosts were absolutely WONDERFUL people.
Nice Nice Nice place. Although when we were there, there were a lot of stored RV's taking spaces up, but we were there during off season, so there was still plenty of room. $25 rate was based on a weekly rate. Close enough to Corpus Christi that we drove back-and-forth two days sightseeing there also. Great laundry facilities. Nice large cement pads with grass between the sites. We enjoyed our stay here.
We requested a pull-thru and were given site #63. We attempted to 'level out', but to no avail. So they said we could move to #62-61 or 60. HA HA HA NONE of these pull-throughs were level. Even the person next to us had his front wheels completely up off the ground. So we were not satisfied with the pull-through sites. Also - the campground is in the airport flight area. You WILL hear airplanes (but not near a railroad track). :)
Front desk lady was very polite. Clean restrooms, showers, laundry area, and even a kitchen area next to the rec room (you MIGHT get Wi-Fi in the rec room). Cable not available at the time we were there. There were probably less than a dozen people camping there when we were there; most of those appeared to be 'living' there. Originally, this RV park was built to house construction crew for the new power plant. Now that the power plant is established, the park is open to the public. It's next to a train track and usually the trains quit running before midnight. They had not maintained the grounds, but on the day that we left, they were mowing the tall grass/weeds - which made it look a lot better. It served our purpose for staying in Riesel and visiting family. Alert - staying during a rainy season is not a good idea; your coach WILL sink in the mud.
We have stayed here during summer months for several years for our family reunions that are held nearby. It's been a good, secure, clean place to stay. Laundry facilities were good, clean, adequate. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. Very little traffic noise from the Lovington highway (never did keep us awake).
Nice place to stay. We were able to get a 'lake view' around Pelican Loop, on the NE corner of their whole campground. Some I-25 traffic noise, but not bad at all. We really enjoyed the various birds, mink, deer (unfortunately lots of moths), but we would stay here again. We camped in a 42 ft with four slides and had a cement pad, covered picnic table, electric only site, and the site was level. Great place.
Friendly staff. Good BBQ meals on-site you can purchase. Our site was level and had shade trees. It was a 'little' tight getting out due to being FULL. We parked in the southern part of the park for one night so that we didn't have to unhook our tow. Easy access to I-25, although a little bit of road construction made the North bound turn onto I-25 a bit challenging.
We had a beautiful site in the tall pine trees, although 'unlevel'. Once more campers arrived in our area (it's a LARGE campground), we had to back out of our "pull through" site because of other campers vehicles parked partly in the roads. Since it is such a large campground, there were LOTS of people; lots of fires in the firepits in the evening/night and lots of smoke; making the evenings/nights very unpleasant because of all the smoke. We would only stay here again during 'off season'. First night was higher priced because it was a 'weekend'. Following nights were about $58: still pretty pricey, but it has lots of "family" amenities.
Okay place to stay over one night. Most of the "pot holes" mentioned in an earlier review have been filled with gravel. Park was pretty clean. Many full timers, it seemed. Spaces were a little tight for our 65' total length with toad and four slides (we only put out two). This park is a very short distance North of I-70, so you get a little traffic noise, but we still got a good nights sleep and felt safe. Of course it was 105 degrees when we stopped at 7pm, so our air conditioner was running a lot. Yes - we would stay there again just overnight.
Great place for us to stay just overnight. Spaces were a little tight for us with four slideouts, so we only put out two. Owners very caring about the grassy areas (do not park on any grass). One of our tires was on the grass about an inch, but they said that was okay for just one night. Office is in a beautiful Victorian home. No amenities to speak of, but it provided our needs for a one night stay over. Easy to get into and out of the park.
They are everything they say they are. Level sites, clean-clean-clean campsites, nice decorative night-light poles, wide and long spaces. We had plenty of room for our 42' plus our toad, making a total of about 65' - so that we did not have to unhook our toad. Half a block from Hwy 54, but it was very quiet in our space #41. Rates are dependent on needs. We did not need cable, so rate was only $19. Can't beat that.
Great huge camping drive-thru spaces. We were here for a rally. Nice facilities; but the 'meeting' room was very rustic and not conducive to holding 'this time of the year' gatherings (too airy and cold). But it would be a nice 'meeting room' during slightly warmer weather. Staff were all great people. Easy access from Hwy 54/70 (watch for the big white pistachio to make your East turn).
People at check-in were absolutely wonderful hosts. Great place to stay; nice grounds; sites were pretty level (gravel); rec room, bathrooms, and showers were very clean (with HOT water, too). Neat little town of Alpine to visit. Hosts recommended several things to see and do. Great museum at Sul Ross State University called Big Bend Musuem (free). Close enough for all of us to caravan to McDonald Observatory and take a guided tour. Also visited Fort Davis historical site. Our site had a pine tree on each side of us, so it was a little tight to get out without getting the coach scratched by a tree, but the neighbors did move their truck to enable to better 'wiggle' out into the street to depart. Easy entry access, though.
We stayed only overnight - arrived late and left early. The entry into the park is on a very sharp curve and is extremely dangerous because of traffic coming in from the right or West side of this road. Even though speed limits are low, it is a blind curve from the right for those going into the KOA. Slept well.
We were on the far west end across from lakeside spaces. We still had a great view of the lake and the two swans. It was a very good stay (3 nights). We really liked the nice BIG concrete pads scenery. We were very pleased that they picked up garbage several times a day up until 5 p.m. We had no problems with the Wi-Fi.
This is yet another older RV park. We would not classify it as a 'resort'. Spaces were rather tight for a big rig, although lengthy enough for the rig and the tow. There is a great little gift shop. There are too many permanent residents for us to want to stay there again.
This is an older KOA that we stayed at in March 2009. The lake and activity areas are very nice. The space that we were assigned was very narrow and just barely accommodated our RV and tow. If someone had parked in front of at one of the rentals, we would not have been able to pull out of our camping space. The back row of permanent mobile home rentals were very run down and rather disgusting to see. The staff was very friendly. The ducks were entertaining, although they could hinder traffic flow.
We had a group rally here and the weather was terribly (unusually) cold for this time of the year. The campgrounds did not have a building available for group meetings, however. We were offered a 'shed' but it was too cold and windy. The campgrounds are clean; staff was very nice. They were in the process of rearranging some of the sites and had poured new concrete sidewalks and picnic table areas in the front row by the highway. Highway noise was minimal, especially at night. Great view of the La Sal Mountains (covered with snow). WiFi was terribly slow. No other amenities.
Great place to stay and relax. They have a nice fishing pond (our site faced the pond - relaxing, soothing). Nice little restaurant attached to lobby and RV supply store. Great people. Freeway traffic not too noisy. Listening to the frogs at night was fun. Would stay here again. We had a 43 ft RV and a truck-in-tow; our site had plenty of room (width and length) for us not to have to unhook. Easy to get in and out of the pull-through site.
Great place to stay for a quick overnight sleep. Free Wi-Fi; excellent front office assistance. They recommended eating at Lambert's (a new and great experience for us). We would stay here again. We had a 43 foot RV with a truck in tow and had plenty of room (width and length) in our pull-through site.
Great, nice campground with huge pull throughs. We were just passing through for one night, and the sites were so long, we did not have to unhook our tow. The sites were also large enough for plenty of room for slides and getting out of the campground. Nice place. We'd stay there again. Also nice people.
This pull through site that we got was nice on a cement pad, and a long enough pull through, that we would not have had to disconnect our tow. This campground is definitely a "family" campground since it is so close to Disneyland and has free shuttles. Front office was not typical "resort" style; had very little offerings as far as supplies and groceries were concerned. Prices were pretty high for us. Campground was clean.
Nice huge RV Park. Lots of spaces when we were there. Great place to park and run around going through all the Amana's and visiting Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. Most spaces are back-to-back, but if no one else is in your same space, it's very easy to just pull through. They are starting to plant some small trees. Hookups were in the middle of each site so they were easily accessible and easy to "not run over".
Nice clean park and nice people at the front office. We had a 'big' rig and were only able to park by pulling through a back-to-back space. If someone else came in, they would then have to back in behind us. Something to consider when staying there. Nice laundry room and nice community center with activities.
The registration staff were rude. We arrived on Valentines' Day. We left the next day, as planned. That morning, one of our party was told they could not park next to their elderly parents for less than 5 minutes while we prepared to leave. Since the previous camper had just moved out, our party parked next to their elderly parents anyway. Immediately, the campground staff demanded they "get out of the park now!" We did not see why there was such rudeness and lack of concern for the RV parks' staffs' actions. There was nothing that had to be cleaned or accounted for. It was just a campsite with dirt and gravel and lots of goathead weeds. There were no amenities that we saw. They consider this to be an RV Resort with lots of sale or rent by night. We will not stay there again.
