This place gave us the creeps. I was in the office paying for a campsite, and my husband came in and said to get my money back...we weren't staying. We both had an uneasy feeling - dogs running loose, an employee who appeared to be stoned. Sites are very close together and unkempt. - HuskerMama

Pulled in before setting up went to use bathroom, walked in bathroom, no a/c, roaches in both sinks. Looked in showers same roaches had been there for some time. Pulled out with out staying. Called Manager with what we saw in both bathrooms, he replied he would check into in a few days, as he was out of town. - Soup

This was just an overnight stay. Not much better than a Walmart parking but it was quiet. It is a funky, small, rundown place with mostly permanent residents. The lady managing the office was very nice. Greeted us as we arrived and said pick a spot then just come up to the office to register. Doubt that we would stay here again unless just for overnight. - Rick & Karen

This is a decent city park type campground and is near town and Walmart. The city park looks more like a small fairground and is split into north and south parts by fence, the campground loop is in southern half of park behind city pool. Enter park at large gravel lot adjacent to pool. Showers are in small toilet block in front of community building which is in north half of park, 150 feet from campsites. M/F toilet rooms have 1 shower each, reasonably clean. Don't know about access to pool facilities in season. Sites are electric/water only but there is a dump in the exit of the campground loop. 7 day maximum stay. All sites have satellite views and there are a couple of off air English language TV channels. Good Verizon cell phone and Virgin Mobile (Sprint network) MiFi signals. The train tracks that parallel highway 287 are a couple of hundred yards away and are not too loud, no level crossings nearby to cause use of horn. Highway 287 is further away still and cannot be heard. - readontheroad

Selma Park is about 4 miles from State Highway 287. As such it is a convenient waystation for us.
1. Park is unkept - grass was knee-high. Sticker-burr grass was everywhere (if you have dogs, don't let them out!). Sites were not level, for the most part, and there was soil erosion in many places that made rig placement difficult.
2. Fire ants everywhere
3. Bathrooms were locked. We don't normally use them, but just fyi.
4. Dump station is a BIG problem. Water wasn't working. Ramp sloped away from the dump hole, so we had to use blocks to level the trailer to get everything out.
5. All the water locations had sign saying non-potable. We had our own, and others posting here said the water was OK, but was well water and as such couldn't be labeled potable. Your call...
6. Host wasn't around -we'll have to mail in our payment because there were no forms, and I won't just leave cash.
The shame of the state of disrepair is that this park has "great bones". The lake is attractive, there's a lot of waterfront, a fishing pier, and sites that are heavily shaded and some that are right out on a peninsula into the lake. This could be a beautiful go-to destination if they would clean it up. - TIN Diesel

21 sites. Amenities: E,W, Dump. Bathroom and shower very dimly lit but clean. Sites with electric have relatively
new 50 amp service. Sites with water are labeled "not potable" but office person said its well water so the city can't label it potable. Site with electric & water are $15 (we had no discount). Verizon 2 bars. Mifi slow. Some sites have shade shelters, no grills. Some sites have tree shade some complete sun. Roads hard packed gravel, sites fairly level. We stayed in site 13, in a 39 ft motor home with well water and50 amp elec. Our Direct satellite TV service excellent. - User2477

Close to home. Nice area on waterfront. Boats pull up to sites. Host is helpful and keeps watch out for others. - Sbates

My review may not be reflective of how the park typically looks, as there was a nearby pipeline job and the park was packed solid with workers. It was very cramped and you could even hear adjacent campers steps as they walked inside their rv. These guys put in long days and definitely enjoy their beer and outdoor gab sessions after work. Diesel trucks jammed the interior roads. There were dead branches and trash when I pulled into my site. Someone’s sewer connection was bad and the smell was nauseating.
On the plus side, the office people were professional and friendly and they have nice facilities. Also, about 2/3 of the park has great shade (but no OTA reception due to that.) If I had visited another time, my review might have been positive. I found another park several miles away that had spacious sites, OTA reception and peace and quiet. It had a seven-day stay limit, so most campers were just there for an overnight spot. - jdtex

My husband and I are pipeliners and we stayed at Campers Paradise for about two months. During this time, we had an excellent experience. Everyone was helpful and polite. The manager took care of things when I needed my change back, and helped out. This camp just got new WIFI, which was fast and was free for stort-term stays. There was also another WIFI for streaming movies for a fee. Unlike the rest of the campsites near this area, Campers Paradise did not go up on their price for pipeliners, and that was a big plus as all the others did. I would highly recommend this park for people who care about quality. It was really nice this time at the pool since all the locals were no longer being dropped off, and the residents could have a peaceful pool visit. - Corrie Adams

I have been to this park many times on the way to Colorado. However, this time it was different. The restrooms were spotless, the store and reception area were completely remodeled and the owner/receptionist was pleasent and helpful. I realized how much I liked the huge trees and updated look. My wife was very happy with the laundry room as well. - Michael Brooks

Everything I need in a park. Nicely laid out, easy in and out of a pull through site, easy hookups, good water pressure, very clean restrooms, showers, and FREE laundry with newish machines in great condition. Plus friendly people, both host and guests. - Langster

This park was right off the highway which was perfect for me as I was merely looking for a place to pull off and continue driving the next morning. Rate was either $18 or 20 with my Good Sam discount. My site was a pull thru which the owner said they leave available for people like myself. Site wasn't very level and had to put blocks under one side. Not bad but just enough that I would probably notice during the night. Grass was in pretty bad need of cutting but that didn't bother me in the least. Trains did run by right next to the campground pretty often so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Bring ear plugs if train noise bothers you at night. Power pedestal was easily accessible. Nearest restaurants several miles away so consider that when ready to eat. That said, I would stay here again if I ever pass back through. - rcknrbn

Easy access off 287, relatively flat sites and good power and water. The staff here could not be nicer or more welcoming and even went so far as to run up to the cafe and collect our dinners for us as we were tired. You can hear the road traffic at night but it was not an issue. We'll stay here again as it's a great one night layover. - D and PK

The park is far enough away from highway 287 that the noise isn't noticeable. The manager was super friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were very clean, too. There were no over-the-air tv stations available that we could find. Online reservations were easy to make. - bushmg

Good level concrete pads with good hookups. Nothing fancy but a nice place to stop for the night. Be careful coming in at the front and look for the RV entrance sign. Even then the driveway is very uneven on the way to the back where the park is located. If driving on 82 after dark be on the lookout for deer. We saw two and were grateful they were walking along the side and weren't startled by the traffic. They were big ones. - tb919

This is a great little park and for us, it is halfway between Amarillo and home, an ideal overnight stop. The pads are concrete and level, the roads are crushed rock. If the wind picks up the dust from the roads, the conference center car park is like a sandstorm. Other than that, everything works just fine. The power, water and cable are good. The Wi-Fi can get a bit iffy at times but the AT&T signal is strong. I'm glad that I found this place and I'll be using it again on our trips out west. Come prepared. There is no campground store so bring groceries and anything else you will need!!! There aren't many places to eat (2 Mexican restaurants) and we never saw a grocery store but, I must admit, we didn't look too hard. - ETF

This is a hidden gem! I was expecting the typical old motel with a run down patch of dirt with hookups, but not this place! The sites were behind a small hotel (not motel). They were spacious, very level, immaculate. We will definitely put this on our list as a stopping place when traveling this way. - Calteri
