10 RV Parks near Shallowater, Texas
Mar 2018 - $25.00
Stayed for one night heading to Bandera and one night coming back. Perfect for what I needed. I paid the owner $25 for the night and asked if I could stay again in a weeks time when I came back. No problem, he would hold it for me. This is a good place to stay the night, nothing more. - william1996

We spent one night in a 44-footer with slide-outs and a tow. Richards RV is a small, quiet family-owned RV park a few miles northwest of Lubbock. Most of the residents are long term, but there are two pull-through sites in the front of the park for overnight stays. Both sites are level, partially shaded, easy in/easy out, very spacious and can accommodate any size RV. There is no cable or WiFi, but the rate is reasonable and the location is very convenient if you are traveling along US-84. - Carolynp

Dusty, tight interior roads, park is right next to road and railroad and was really noisy. Good, level, Water/Sewer/Electric pull-through site with cable. All services worked fine. WiFi unreliable but we don't count on campground WiFi as we find it rarely meets our needs. Verizon OK. We were back by the dumpsters which needed to be emptied and drew a lot of flies. Indoor pool which was OK, but the heater and hot tub were both broken. We enjoyed the Buddy Holly stuff, a nice lunch at Cast Iron grill, and spent the whole afternoon at the National Ranching Heritage Center at Texas Tech; it was fantastic. We would stay here again if in the area. - Janau NC

The signage was inadequate and we missed the turn into the park; we turned around in a parking lot of an adjacent business that had a bigger sign than the KOA sign stating that his property should not be used for turnarounds, so that indicated to me I wasn't the only person who missed the entrance to the park. Restrooms need a rehab with newer toilets installed. WiFi is spotty. Most TV stations are grainy. The park is acceptable for overnighters only; and it really helps if you don't need WiFi or TV because you won't be satisfied with either. - Bart1979

In my experience KOAs are never great nor ever awful; a range maybe of 6.5 to 8. The Lubbock KOA is on the low end of that scale, primarily because the sites are short. Also, no 50 amp and the roads and sites are gravel, close together and tight. But if you happen to be on your way to Muleshoe, the location can't be beat! The restrooms and showers were tired, but clean. It's fine for an overnight. Anything longer and you'll probably want to shop around. - TravelingTrailer

Only 6 nightly spaces, the others from what I saw were long-timers. The long-timers kept their spaces clean. Roads are asphalt and are very well maintained and the sites are concrete and level. We had a table and BBQ pit. Pool was very crowded due to the large number of long timers. Campground is located to good eateries and a club discount store across the street. Quiet, except someone did complain about a nightly visitor running their generator, no rules against that. There is one shower for men and one for women. Showers were not very clean and mold in the stalls. Otherwise, we would return. - SD75mac

I will ditto the reviews of 2016. There are only 7 overnight sites. Costco is right across the street which makes it handy. - waxhands

Great location on the west side of Lubbock near the Loop, so it's easy to get around. We stayed in a "nightly" site which was easy to navigate, ample size, cement and level. Utilities worked well although water h/u was below ground and somewhat difficult to connect. No cable and WIFI was sketchy, but the $25 per night was a good deal. We have stayed here before and will stay again when in the area. - Scott & Nancy

This is a great located park in Lubbock. It has quite a few long term residences but every site is well kept so that should not scare you off. One important thing to keep in mind is Lubbock is a college town and Fridays and Saturdays during football season will be booked solid for all home games. We needed to leave on Friday because of this. We didn't give it a perfect score only because both the electric and water are very close to the ground making connections difficult. If your electrical cord or surge protector doesn't bend well you may have a problem. If you don't bend well the water connection being 8" off the ground will have you taking a knee. The pull thru sites are quite long but they are half gravel half concrete. When you pull up onto the concrete pad to align with connections you will have unhitch (5th Wheel) but there is plenty of space on the side or behind your trailer to park tow vehicle. Motorhomes with toads will not have issues because the sites favor them. We will consider this park first on any trip to Lubbock. - Maximilian

We gave the park a 5 rating because of it's location... had it been in a less convenient location, we'd give it a 3. WiFi was terrible and when we mentioned it, the owner said "good luck if you can get it... some people have to go outside their coach to get it...". The electrical box was almost at ground level which meant we couldn't use our surge guard without it laying on the ground and it rained hard 2 of the days we were there. The park was clean but crowded, not difficult to maneuver into the site. Laundry facilities were clean (4 washers, 4 dryers). Site was level but concrete pad was badly cracked. - Aus10

3rd time staying, found this is our go to place when visiting relatives in Lubbock. With cab over on truck the shower is very important. Its very clean. - Fred Goff

We really like this place. Trees and peaceful. Nice folks. Easy access to town. The spaces are a bit tight, but it was not a problem. We stayed almost a week. Lubbock is a great town with lots to see and do. The bathrooms / showers are the best we've ever seen. Huge, spotless, and beautiful. - Maine Divers

Beautiful park in a country setting. Only a few miles out of town, but very easy to get to everything. Staff was very easy to deal with. Grandkids enjoyed the playground, we enjoyed the changing of the trees. We have stayed in other parks in Lubbock during our travels, but this will be our go to park in the future. All hookups were great with super WIFI. No cable but plenty of channels with antenna. Concrete pad made parking easy and clean. - Donny and Donna

This is an older park but big rig friendly. Concrete site with trees but we asked for a sat friendly site and they gave us one that was. We were in the pull thru in the back and had no problems getting in or out. However if a vehicle had been in the road it could have been interesting as the streets are narrow. We would stay here again if in the area. - peddy dick

Good gravel roads and level gravel sites. The park gladly allowed us to stay an additional day while waiting for 45-65 mph winds to pass. This was an excellent stopover park and we will visit them again. - RCCraig

This is our "go to" campground when visiting relatives in Lubbock area. Campground is always kept clean. - MamaLyn
Nov 2018 - $19.00
We stayed here overnight. The park is in an industrial looking area . Office person was not particularly friendly but business-like. Our site was packed gravel, pull-through and level. Full hookups worked well, we didn’t use the WiFi. Many folks appear to live in the park and probably work in the area. But the park was very clean and tidy with several fenced dog areas, laundry room, bathrooms and a pool (closed for the season). Other than sirens, the place was quiet and appeared safe. Would stay here again. - mohocamper

Fairly new park with basic amenities and asphalt sites. Back in. Friendly staff. Good park for overnight or base for Lubbock activities. Open area with no trees. Park is only about a year old and the owners are developing all the time. Would stay here again. Probably best to call ahead to get directions to park. - twocoots

WOW! despite the other reviews, we chose to stay here and had a completely different experience. So, looking at the fact that we were there "off season" vs the reviews in summer... there must be a big difference in having lots of traffic and messy campers in the summer. We found the place to be very clean and pleasant. There was no trash all around, the water was nice, the fishing was fun and pleasant.
There were a lot of big rigs there and most all of us had some problem with getting leveled (we had to try 5 sites to get one where we could level--- arriving in the dark made it harder). The other rigs had obviously used levelers as well as boards to shore up the rig to level.
The woman running the entrance the night we arrived was very nice; the woman the next day was rude and downright hateful.
Highly suggest NOT driving on around the lake thru the residential area with a motorhome and ESPECIALLY if towing--- very narrow and tight.
We can hardly wait to return and have a boat or kayak with us.
We got local tv (plenty of channels) but had almost no cell service-- Verizon : none, Grandson's ATT was always at 1 bar. - ginger2you

It was very busy during our stay and most of the visitors piggy-backed and parked their extra vehicles on neighboring campsites. I didn't have enough room to properly park my truck. Campers were rowdy and we had to deal with loud music and UTVs into the wee hours. We even had other campers bumping into our trailer and arguing outside our windows from parties that got out of hand. The park police and camp host did nothing to keep things under control. The lake itself has much to offer. - armijot

Not a great place to stay. The main campground is A and B. Those sites were very close and didn't look too level. There was a live band playing on stage both days we were there. We stayed in campground S, which is across the lake from A and B. The music was at a comfortable level for us, but we were ACROSS the lake!! Would have been miserable to be stuck on that side. Note - this was not a publicized concert. We had no idea of the band until they fired up on Friday.
We would stay there again, but only on the S side. Also, this park DOES NOT take reservations, so for us we drive 2 hours with no guarantee of what is available when we get there.
Lake bottom is nasty, gooey mud that will stick you up to your knees. The S sites are right on the water, so not a bad place if you are just using the RV as a base camp for boats or jet skis. No picnic tables or shade included with your site, just a grassy parking spot. Our site was fairly level, but many others were so far off that they couldn't even get close to leveling their trailers. We did get rain, and most of the spots got really muddy, but it is lakefront so that's expected. We stayed in a fifth wheel. We would probably stay there again, just due to location, but definitely not high on my list to go back to. - rm0852

This is a city-owned park about 2 miles south of town on US385. 7 spaces, 5 are nice long pull-throughs, 2 are shorter but very usable. 50/30amp. 3 days free, up to 7 more at $25/night. Highway noise that lessens at night. Dump station available. Dumpsters were full, probably from local use or maybe the city doesn't service them regularly. No enforceable rules on dogs, so there are some poop piles around. Grass is dying and small burrs abundant. Afternoon shade only on site #1. Still, a great value. Need to spend $$ in town to thank them. - wingnut60

Very nice free park south of town. Around 6 sites, long pull thru sites with water and power. There is a dump station available. The park is free for up to 3 days after which you can extend and pay a fee. Great place for an overnight and we used it for 2 days as we visited a friend. Our only complaint is that previous campers have a tendency to drop cigarette butts and other trash on the ground which makes it a little messy. - nmunozjr

I stayed at this free city park one night while visiting friends in Brownfield. Although Brownfield has a similar free city park, it only offers 30 amp service. Since the weather was quite hot, I opted to stay here, as it offers 50 amp service, and commute to Brownfield. This park is very convenient to US385 just south of the city. The pull-through site was level and plenty long for my motorhome and tow car. As a way to say "thank you" I bought groceries and fuel in Levelland the next day. - Phaeton40AH

this was an emergency stop for us, so we were grateful for it's existence. It's a free park with water and electric. There's also a dump station. The park isn't nice or inviting, but it's a place to stay, and like I said - it's free. They have a place to walk your dog, which was nice. If you need a place to stay - it will certainly do. - Rver at heart

Stayed in Full Hook Up area. Originally a park for small rigs. Plenty of room, level and easy to find. Used my AT&T for WiFi. OTA TV is good for Lubbock stations. Would recommend to all travelers. The fee is free, but happy to donate in the box. Town is large enough to have choice of restaurants, groceries and some shopping. Close enough to Lubbock to use as base for attending Texas Tech events. - tbax46

Free RV Park in town. Main part of CG has electric and water sites. However, they have added some FHU sites on the opposite side of the horseshoe pits. Great place for an overnight stop. $5 was a donation. Thanks Waylon for park! - jnateg
