Fredericksburg, Texas KOA, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is an honest review. We chose this park due its proximity to Fredericksburg (5 miles east). Our experience largely mirrored two other 2-star reviews posted on RV Park Reviews. The Park is OK. It's appearance is a bit "tattered" e.g. the entrance drive gate was bent from prior impacts, and both the entrance and exit drive gates were temporarily supported by yellow cargo straps. Drainage can be an issue during rains and finally road/site gravel is in need of replenishment throughout the park. We stayed several nights in two different pull-throughs having to relocate mid-stay due to availability. One lot was in the rear of the park and had nice tree shade. The rear of the park as others have pointed out, was overrun with cats so be forewarned. The second spot we relocated to, was out in the open, mid-park. This site had a drainage issue as most of the spots in that campground area drainage through this spot towards the center grass field in the campground. This made entry/exit from the motorhome a soggy experience. The trash dumpsters were clean, generously large, and centrally located near the dog park, away from all campsites. The reservations staff were pleasant however like other reviewers noted, the staff on the golf carts tended towards "rude" (note: other reviewer's words, but they matched our experience). Other regular visitors advised us that is the not unusual. We stayed in a Motorhome at Fredericksburg, Texas KOA. We camped at Fredericksburg, Texas KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit both the Nimitz Museum of the Pacific War, and the Pioneer Museum in Fredericksburg. It will take you a full two days to view the Nimitz museum, and at least a half day to view the fascinating local German history depicted at Pioneer Museum. There is a Walmart a few miles to the west. Also Highway 290 is lined with Texas Hill Country wineries. Bring your cell-data hotspot if you need a reliable Internet connection. The campground WiFi is use-limited.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for one night in Van Horn, headed westward to El Paso from Fredericksburg. This was previously a KOA park that has gone private. Typical of West Texas RV parks: it has no shade and gravel & dirt sites. The sites were level and the utilities worked. Each site has a courtesy light on the service pedestal which was nice at night.

This is an older RV park but the price, power, water and sewer services were fine. The park is near, but not too close, to I-10 so is relatively quiet. We heard a train horn in the distance occasionally, but not intrusive.

A cafe was on site however we did not use it. We did have an excellent dinner experience with some other overnight RV'ers we met, when we tried the Van Horn Cattle Company which was a gem of a restaurant in the town of Van Horn.

The park seems to function largely as an over-night park that filled in the afternoon and emptied out in the morning. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient for a affordable stopover and the town of Van Horn had a good restaurant (Van Horn Cattle Company). The food was excellent, well presented and was reasonably priced. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Fort Bliss RV Park (Military FamCamp), El Paso, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Located in Northeast El Paso, TX. This is a model (top notch, well run) DoD FAMCAMP: modern, clean, and friendly staff. Ft Bliss senior leadership/MWR is doing this right. 60 foot pull-throughs with 50 amp power, water and sewer.

No reservations, first-come, first-served with stay limitations. When we arrived mid-day Monday, in mid-December 2018, there were initially ~ 10 spots available.

Immediately adjacent AAFES mini-mart and Subway sandwich shop with gas and diesel at good prices, with adequate maneuvering room for RVs and 5th Wheels. Is near freeway (noise), occasional high winds so those with slides be aware and have straps available to protect slide top-covers: to prevent billowing/de-spooling/snapback. We camped at Fort Bliss RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Post Exchange at Ft Bliss was new, large, well stocked. Also has a pioneering (1st in DoD) on-base outdoor mall with shops and restaurants called "Freedom Crossing," immediately adjacent to the Post Exchange. Ft Bliss also has a large Commissary.
