[Moderator's note: As of September 15, 2012, this park has gone out of business.]
Easy on and off the freeway. Level sites with stable power and good Wi-Fi signal. The "cable TV" is six channels of major networks and CW. Okay place for an overnight. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean little park. They gave us a selection of sites to pick from. Owners helpful with info on having a tire replaced. The truck tire shop was a few doors down, and they came right over and changed tire. Sites are close, but since it isn't that busy, not an issue. There is some traffic noise, but being tired from a long drive, we slept through it. Only downfall was the pet area. It is a nice fenced in area, but there is a building attached to it, and someone lives there with big dogs. When we opened the gate, the dogs started barking and scared my smaller dog. Otherwise, great for one night. Our rate reflects a cash price, full hook-up, 50 amp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here both coming and coming on our trip. The host was extremely cordial and helpful. Sites are level gravel, all hookups worked. The CATV only featured about 8-9 channels, mostly local. There is some noise from both the Highway 10 and a railroad. In the summer when air is used it will muffle the sound. Showers were older but clean and well maintained. We will probably stay here again. Easy access off the freeway. Older park in small town but overall a good experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great stop over spot. Easy pull thru and flat, new managers are very friendly. No pool. TV is analog with a variety of stations and wifi. Very good steakhouse next door and we enjoyed our dinner there. The manager was up early to let us out the back entrance and right onto I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Talk about true Texas hospitality...the office attendant was extremely friendly and helpful. As stated previously, the park was located near the interstate, so if you want easy access, then the noise is to be expected. Sites were wide and level with no problems getting in or out. Also, there was a home town grocery store near the park which had necessary supplies and some amazing buys as well. If traveling this way again, we would return here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was supposed to be big rig friendly, but that must have been before some of the trees grew. We were able to finally get squeezed into a site, but avoiding the trees and have a path to pull out without backing took some effort. Some sites were only 30 amp, and others were 50. Voltage was the lowest we had experienced on our trip and needed a booster for acceptable levels. Roads and sites were both gravel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Certainly suitable for an overnight stop on a long trip if your rig is not too big. A bit expensive for what you get. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Value, easy access from highway, easy access to site, wide & level sites, electric receptacle is up-side down, all other hook ups are convenient picnic table is barely usable, quiet (distance train and hwy sounds), basic TV cable, WiFi is very good. Staff was professional and helpful. I will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is good for overnight stay. There is convenient access to Interstate. Always leave park via rear exit! It is noisy due to local gravel trucks and Interstate traffic. If you are looking for a quiet park, go elsewhere. There is a McDonald's. Tasty & reasonable food at Chuy's, within walking distance. We stayed 3 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Intended to stay here for only 1 night, but when we went to leave we had problems with our motorhome, so had to extend for three more nights. Very nice lady in the office gave us a discount on the 3 extra nights. Well maintained park with some long pull-through sites that can accommodate a 45' Motor Home and toad. Will definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$30 with Sam club card. Nice little clean park with fairly level red gravel sites. Large and long sites with plenty of room for slide outs and any length rig. Very pleasant lady at check in. Earlier review said there was no grocery store, but there is one west a quarter mile (small but nice and clean with good variety). Would stay here again on a drive through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy registration and manager was very pleasant. Pea gravel roads and level sites with small concrete patio and a small picnic table. CG lays between I-10 and railroad tracks but neither were a noise issue. Easy/close utility hook-up with 6 cable channels available. Site was somewhat narrow but herring bone layout gave you privacy. Price reflected Good Sam discount. Great overnight stop over and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK for overnight. Never saw staff. Left payment in envelope, picked a site & left the next morning. Sites open & level, utilities worked well. Wi-Fi poor. Nothing in town, not even a grocery store, so don't expect to get supplies here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not fancy by any standard. An OK overnight stop. Sites are all gravel, level and hard packed. Small concrete patio at each site with a bistro size table. Trees for shade but some need lower branches trimmed be careful pulling into your site I agree with previous comment that the hook ups are far back on the sites, but I had no problem with 30 foot hose. Wi-Fi was weak and very slow, but it is free. The big negative is the freeway noise as this park is a few hundred feet from the freeway with no noise barrier. I would stop here again. Management was very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good place for an overnight stay. Roads, sites are gravel and hard packed soil. Sites are level. Not fancy by far. They do have free Wi-Fi and laundry. We have stayed here before and for an overnight park would do so again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you just need a place to stop and get off the road, this place is okay. It is not a place you will enjoy, however. It is dusty, noisy from the freeway, and over priced for what you get. No one was in the office, so self-checkin was necessary. Then it was necessary to check sites to find 50 amp service. Hook-ups are at the far back corner of the sites so, if you are in a big rig with a toad, you will need about 35' of water hose and 30' of sewer hose. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park many times, either starting a trip or near the end. We never have any problems as the previous have stated. Parking for the use of regular hoses has never been a problem for my husband. Sights are level. Wi-Fi very good. Easy off/on the interstate. We always feel we get dollar for dollar value. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a few blocks off I-10 which is noisy but convenient for overnight stop. Lots of pull through sites. Free bicycles to use. We got to the park about 5:10p and did self check in. Unable to connect to Wi-Fi. There were plenty of spaces and some have shade trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I stayed at this park last night for 29.70 cash. When we entered the office we were greeted by a large barking dog and the whole time the dog growled at my wife and I. This made us very uncomfortable. We drove to our site, which we had to find on our own. No directions given. We hooked our camper up and decided to let our small dachshund visit the pet run. The web site showed pictures of the pet run that was grassy but to our surprise there was only one patch of grass and the rest was dirt and stickers. The pictures on this web site for Eagles Nest RV Park show grassy tent areas, pet run, etc. But we could not find much grass anywhere in this park. The trees and bushes looked like they haven't been watered in a while. There were an abundance of dead trees and bushes through out the park. In the bathrooms, there was no soap in the dispensers and they were not clean. We decided to do a load of laundry while we were here. There was mud all over the floor in the laundry room and tree debris inside and outside of the washers. The Wi-Fi would not stay on. I went to the office and was given some hum drum excuse about the Wi-Fi. Nothing was done about it and we had no internet for our stay. I talked to the campers beside us and they were having problems as well. There was only 6 channels for the so called cable TV which were the local stations from El Paso, Texas. We will not be staying here again. It's not worth the money. We could have stayed at the rest area right outside of town and had more than what was offered at this park. No receipt was given and we paid cash. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A basic park and OK for the price. RV rates should probably be lower for what is available. Gravel roads make it very dusty and dust gets into engine compartment (diesel pusher). We stayed here twice, once going east and when returning back west. There is not much choice in this town on RV parks. New owner who says he will be making many improvements in the future. We did use the laundry and found it just OK. Did not check the showers or restrooms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. All gravel. Several trees. Gave it a seven because there's no pool so feel the price is a little high. Easy access off highway and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park, clean restrooms. Check out their website, it says it all. I checked in after hours and plan to leave before the office opens, but their instructions on how to do that are very easy and clear. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Staff very nice. Nice Park for the area sites level all pull through, only about 50 miles from the Guadalupe Mountains. We stayed 3 nights. They run a special of pay for 2 night’s stay 3. We will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has easy on and off access to the I-10. You do get the sounds of trucks going by. The sites are pull-throughs, have a nice width and some have shade trees. The park is hard pack dirt and gravel. Sites are fairly level. Wi-fi works great. There is a laundry, bathrooms and a fenced doggie run. We have stayed here before; great for over night. This is a nicely run, no frills park. I felt the price, even with club discount, was a bit high due highway noise and packed dirt. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park but all dirt and dusty. Nice check-in with friendly staff. Wi-Fi worked OK on site 13. Could not find the light switches so guess the bathroom was clean, sure was dark. Its OK for a one nighter but would not stay more than that. Price seemed a little high for a dirt pile. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is just off the freeway with easy access on and off. The host was most courteous and gave us a cable to connect the TV from his own RV. They have a wonderful grassy doggy run area for the pups to be let off the lead. The sites are shaded and level with picnic tables and concrete pads. Easy pull through sites. Great overnight spot to get away from a long days drive. I would and will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great one nighter on the way somewhere else. It's a small, older park but very well kept with very level spots and pull throughs that are long enough for big rigs with toads. The managers are extremely nice and gave us advice for places to eat further down the road. Van Horn is very small and pretty limited so don't look for lots of restaurants. In late March the trees were just starting to get leaves, but when they do there will be nice shade. The Wi-Fi is slow and iffy but otherwise a very nice place. I gave it a 7 mainly because of the managers, good Texas folks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great campground. Only stayed one night and regretted not having more time to stay longer. Would definitely come back. This campground is clean! Not many TV channels, but the main stations, (ABC, NBC, CBS) were of excellent quality. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough RV Park. Some road construction makes getting on the right road from I-10 a little tough. Upon arrival the manager met us at the check-in point (it was dark at 7:00pm), helped us fill out the registration papers and then showed us to our site. Site was long pull through, level gravel, little narrow. Once again utilities are all bunched up too far from where they need to be. By the time I got the rig and the toad into the site (out of the road) I barely had enough cable to reach the shore power. Same way with the water hose. Forget the sewer hose, I was about 20 feet short. Setup was quick and easy. Received my Good Sam discount. Cable TV is available, 6 channels. Wi-Fi is available but unusable. Tried my ATT Air Card, nothing. I was in an area that could not receive data? If I didn’t need the internet, we would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Actually not a bad place for such a remote Texas location. The sites are long and not too close together. Each site has a small concrete pad and small wood table. The park is clean. Laundry: 3 washers, 4 dryers, $1.50 each. The park is located between the interstate, with a high volume of truck traffic, and the railroad, with frequent trains, it is very noisy. The park was offering a special: stay 2 nights and get the 3rd night free.. We would stay here again only for an overnight stop. Free Wi-Fi but very weak and slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way to New Mexico. This campground is very clean and neat with mostly gravel roads and sites. Our site was level enough that we didn't have to unhook for our one night stay. There are shade trees and scrubs between most sites and plenty of room between sites for our slides and awning. The manager was pleasant and gracious. Our dogs loved the pet playground where they could run off-leash! We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park seems clean. They say they have cable but we only get 4 channels. The park is on main street and across the street is a train track. We only stayed one nite and the manager greeted us at 9pm when we arrived. He was a nice man. He also said this RV Park is for sale and doesn't know how much longer it will be open. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We pulled in here on a Saturday for a 2 night stay since we were having electrical problems with our motorhome. The owner was very nice and very helpful. He recommended a mechanic who came to our site right away and fixed our problem. The sites are all dirt, but are shaded and level. The owner had assigned us a site, but told us to take another site if we found one that was shadier. The park is nothing fancy, but makes a good overnight stop. It is quiet and easy access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I've used this park for a number of years for a 1 night stop over when traveling through West Texas. The new owners seem to be trying to keep things up but probably will need to keep an eye on things. The sites are all gravel / sand with easy access pull throughs. Not a place for a long term stay but OK for the over night stop. Next time through I will probably try the KOA in town which seems to have more facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a delight this park was! The owners bend over backwards to be sure you have everything you need. Our site was good sized, and the trees and bushes were appropriately trimmed back so they would not scratch the coach. The laundry and restrooms were very clean. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Definitely an overnight park only. The owner was very grumpy – but friendly. Men’s bathroom was awful – women’s OK. Very, very low flow shower heads. Our one main problem – there were only two RV’s on our row. One was ours and the other was right next to us. A person from a row behind us decided that he wanted to go to the bathrooms. So, he walked between our site and the camper next to us. He even had to turn sideways to get between our slide out and a tree. He did this as we were still setting up. Person had no concern for us and our privacy or spot. I guess we were just in his way. By the looks of this person’s RV (A Mexican National and several others all living in one small trailer), it would appear that they were long-term residents. I guess that gives them extra privileges. There were plenty of empty spaces on our other side or on the other side of the camper next to us. I guess us overnighters are just an inconvenience to the permanent people. Because of this, we laid awake all night and left very early as we could not sleep. Sites were level but all dirt. Be very careful leaving park as you will scrap your bottom – we watch several do this. I could only get the Wi-Fi to work at 3:00am. Not much in town and pricy for what they offer. Would NOT stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate is with Good Sam discount but the man that checked us in said they would not be a Good Sam park for much longer. The fenced in dog run is full of stickers so watch your pets. The "cable tv" was good but offered only four total channels. The wifi had a terrible signal and we could not get a connection. We stayed only one night so it was not a big deal. Not much within walking distance to this park. It works for a night but we would not want to spend much longer in Van Horn. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yeah, a good place for a quick overnight at best. A little cramped making the corners tight. Sites were long enough to keep truck hooked to camper. WIFI acted up a little, so I switched to the phone/air card. Place was wedged between the interstate and a railroad, but the price for quick on/off access. CATV, only 4 channels, nothing to brag about. Yeah, only overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is good for an overnight stop. For a destination stop don't bother. There is NOTHING in this town. The day we stopped here to wind blew so hard it was like sitting in a dust bowl. The sites are all pull-throughs with little concrete patios with little warped picnic tables but like I said for an overnight stop it's OK. We had no problems at all getting our satellite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here numerous times over the years. New owners took over in April are are certainly making headway in improvements. WiFi was great and password is printed on brochure of park. We would like to mention previous complaints regarding those who drive through this (and any park) without first stopping at the "Stop" sign and checking with the office. As guests in parks we most definitely appreciate the security of stopping all who enter a park. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to over night or for a couple days. Easy access off I-10 and exit 138 in Van Horn, Texas. All pull thrus with FHU’s no need to unhook. Free WIFI just ask for network key when checking in. New owners April 10, 2007. Showers, Laundry very clean. Small activity center with tables, games and stage. Nice area for dog walk. Several eateries in walking distance if you don’t want to cook after a long drive or 9 hole Mountain View Golf Course within a mile of the RV park to stretch your legs. We have stayed here in the past and will return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Only stopped for an overnight stay, but would definitely consider CG for longer stay. Owners ere attentive, but based on other reviews definitely concerned about the safety of the people in the campground. It is clear to stop at the office before entering and based on conversation with owner they will jump all over you for not doing so. We will definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
"WHAT THE H*LL ARE YOU DOING HERE?" was the greeting we got from the owners of this park. We stopped in Van Horn due to an ice storm. The first exit we came to had a campground so we went to check it out. My husband stopped our 2005 motorhome by the entrance while I drove in the park in our Lexus SUV to check out the park to make sure it was a safe park for us and our 3 children before registering. We drove in and then on the way back out the owner and her daughter jumped out of nowhere wearing black in front of the SUV scaring us to death. After that disturbing greeting (above), the daughter continued to block us (it appeared she was packing a gun in her pocket)while her mother lectured us on driving past the registration office (the office was dark and closed). This is the Bates Motel of RV parks. Do not even slow down near this park. We ended up staying at the KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight stop on Interstate 10. We've stayed there twice. Gravel sites, with shade when the sun gets low. Everything worked fine, and registration people picked a site for us that would be easy to navigate with a 40-foot motorhome with toad. Spaces are long enough that you don't have to unhook the toad, and Chuy's Mexican restaurant is within walking distance. Play area in front had a basketball goal. It's located away from all the sites, so we could shoot guilt-free hoops because the noise wouldn't bother anybody. We camped here in a Motorhome.
On the contrary to some of the other posts, I would like to say how much my wife and I enjoyed this park. First off, there is a big sign saying, "Please check in at the office". It's very hard to miss that. My wife and I are retired and it was nice to stay at a campground that was concerned with our safety. We stayed for three nights and saw them stop one car. They didn't lock the gate or chase them down, it was more of a wave as they were exiting the grounds. Being in an unfamiliar town it was nice to see someone watching out for their customers. Overall the park was very clean, and it was nice to have some shade in Texas. All the workers were very nice and helpful. We got our dog washed by a nice young lady, and much to my wife's objection had a large piece of cake that the owner baked. (Yum!) We camped here in a Motorhome.

My husband & I wanted to preview this park for future; made the mistake of driving thru with our tow vehicle (without first stopping at the Front Office) & found 2 people blocking our exit; got a stern lecture on trespassing on private property; I had flashbacks of Deliverance but chatted to try to bring down the tension; left with her offer to come back for their "Special" and they're looking for Workampers, too! Sorry, Dear - not even. If we missed out on any other great things about this park, we'll never know because I was scared witless by the welcoming committee! We won't be back with our RV. Stayed with KOA! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stay away from this park. If you want to view the park beforehand I guess you need an invitation because they will stop you at the gate and harass you. There is no wireless internet, The signal is from a hotel next door and of course that is stealing. Limited room to get in and out. All and all a terrible park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Avoid this park! It is hazardous to your safety, and this has nothing to do with park facilities. We drove in with our car to see if it would be better than the park we were in, and without stopping at any time we turned around to leave. As we passed the office three people jumped IN FRONT OF MY CAR. I stopped and a woman stood in front, touching the front bumper, telling me if I moved she was going to "sue for assault". Another person closed and locked the front gate to further prevent us from getting out of the park. The Sheriff was called at my request. The campground filed an assault charge -- and I countered with "unlawful restraint". We were delayed in Van Horn for a court appearance, and finally told by a Sheriff's Deputy to go ahead and "just leave". Besides the aggravation, the safety issue was that if any of the three who jumped in front of my car had a weapon I would have run over them. That would have been a homicide investigation -- for just looking at a campground. Do not patronize this park! In fact, I will never stop in the county (Culberson) again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beware of this park. We pulled in to this park in our toad to check it out, and were told by the man running the place to never come into his park without stopping by the office. He has nothing to fear, we will never go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice for an overnight stay. Owner's wife cooks baked goods sold in cg store, and she's a good cook. Family run, and all very friendly. One of their kids escorted us to the site and made sure we could find everything. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here twice (the first in 2002)and we enjoyed our stays, very friendly staff and clean park. If you drive by a large sign stating "Stop" without stopping and/or asking permission, you will suffer the consequences. We feel good that someone is watching traffic to protect us and our property. We will stay here on our future trips west. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cash price cheaper than credit card price. Friendly staff, willing to help after office
hours. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Friendly staff. Rate was a special while we were there. All sites are pull thru. Gravel
sites with concrete patio pads with picnic table. Freeway is very close so a little noisy. Modem is thru a pay phone in laundry which needs $1.00 to connect. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
