Park is now called "Rocky Top". We just happened to see it from the highway as we drove into town. It is very clean and perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are huge enough that hopefully plans are to add more sites. There are no facilities, restrooms, etc. Pay is on the honor system, an envelope at a little pay station. It appears that most people there are workers in the area. We took the last available site. This will definitely be a place for an overnight stop for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the Alley Oop RV Park, and should be called a trailer park. There are no hookups or spaces for RVs in the city park. There was one space available as all others are occupied by permanent workers. This is not a park for RVers. They have added spaces along the edge and have one in the driveway you need to use to exit from the first row. No restrooms, showers or laundry. Run by the city with a self pay box. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate has changed to $10. Site I pulled into was strewn with broken glass, sites are generally unmaintained. Only other rigs there were permanents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Iraan, Texas was built on land donated by Ira and Ann Yates, thus its name. On the outskirts of town is a 40-acre city park, with a swimming pool, playground, trees, and more. In one part of the 40 acres is a small r.v. park with about 10-12 sites, one medium-to-small tree at several of the sites, and a dump station. Some sites are in a pull-through, center area with water, electricity and sewer hookups, and the rest lie along the rv section's perimeter with just water and electricity. This modest r.v. park provides no showers or rest rooms. A honor system exists at the r.v. park; you are asked to deposit the daily $6 charge in a box there. If you prefer, you can also drive it over to Iraan's "city office". The honor system speaks volumes about honesty and small-town courtesies that are so hard to find these days. It's been an altogether pleasant experience to stay there on two fall and winter trips in West Texas; we have enjoyed the quiet hospitality immensely. Roaming and grazing throughout all these quiet, peaceful 40 acres is a herd of about 20 deer. We camped here in a camper.
