Very nice RV Park. Big Rig friendly. Plenty of room on the sites. Mountain views are wonderful. This park was a KOA park until May 2015 when new ownership declined to continue as KOA. You have all the great things that KOA offers you- including a cafe that is open 7 days a week for breakfast and dinner. Super friendly staff. WIFI gets a little slow when the park is full. I will return here in the future

While they think of themselves as only an overnight stop, this camp ground is much more than that. The sites are designed to give you lots of space on either side. The place is clean and well kept. The cafe on site is great, the store has what you need and the people are friendly. Take the time to talk to them

While jokingly Van Horns claim to fame is that it's 150 miles to the nearest Walmart and the diesel fried chicken. There is lots to do and see in the area. That includes Carlsbad caverns, gradalupe mountians, Marfa Prada, the town of Mafa, the McDonald Obsevatory, Ft Davis, and the beauty of the desert itself. I spent a week there and felt very comfortable the entire time.

Don't miss this little oasis in the desert. Your time spent there will be well worth it.

I cannot say enough about this very friendly and quiet RV park. The sites are not on top of each other and are pull throughs. The cafe isn't fancy, but the food is good. You will not be disappointed. We will make a point to stay when we travel through Texas.

Last minute stop after a long hour drive, searched the phone internet and found this place to be most accommodating. Personnel very friendly and had all hookups for a moderate rate. It helps to be a Good Sam member.
We got there after closing, but left us the lot # and paperwork.
All hookups worked great, bathrooms were older, yet very clean. Restaurant menu a little pricey.

We are new to Rving. Found this RV Park to have it all. Loved the Cafe, we had the Salisbury steak dinner and then a country egg and sausage breakfast. It was great. Convenience store had a little of everything. Personnel very friendly and inviting. Look forward to returning some day.

Large spaces and nicely laid out. This was a real treat after spending the previous night in Odessa in a crowded, close quarters and narrow roads.

Level sites, friendly staff. Nice quiet park close enough to the highway. Nice pool. We left our EMS at the campsite and of course we didn't realize that until the next day. We called them and luckily they found it still hooked to the pedestal. Whew.... they mailed it to our home. We will stay there again when traveling thru Texas. Can't wait to visit when the cafe is open.

Had the pleasure of staying in the park twice; once going to Austin and then again on the way back. All the sites are pull through. The sites are level. Obviously full hook ups. They are dog friendly with two nice dog enclosures and they are horse friendly with stables available. There's also a small pond for fishing and lots of bunnies and quail running around. The park is far enough from the highway to give it the feeling of being in the country, but easy to find. During the months of October to April, there's a cafe that has received very good reviews, but unfortunately we were there in May. Staff is friendly and helpful too. Directed us to a very nice local restaurant for breakfast. There's a nice pool, but we didn't take advantage of it. We didn't use any of the facilities such as restrooms or laundry, but based on our initial experience, I would expect nothing but nice and well kept facilities. We plan to return to Austin in the fall and plan to stay there again. We've joked that we need to get a horse too so we can take advantage of the stables!

Ratings for this park are too high. Very dirty & dusty, compounded because no one goes the speed limit, including the staff. Isn't there something to put on the roads to keep dust down?
Restrooms are not clean. I don't think you can because they desperately need remodeled. There are not any no smoking signs in the restrooms, so you get a shot of smoke usually when using them.
One shower is down, hot water control is broken, leaving 2 showers for the men.
The working staff are friendly and sociable.
The, "Pond" is surrounded by apparently abandoned buildings and a vehicle sitting on the ground. An aerator would do wonders for the lake.

Response from Van Horn RV Park:
3/21/2017
Thank you for your review. We are glad to take this opportunity to answer your concerns.

The park has a water truck that is used on the roads on a regular basis. However, due to the climate the roads dry out rapidly.

Our restrooms are cleaned on a daily schedule after the previous days guests check out and prior to the current days guests arrival. As with any public area that sees constant use they do need maintenance. This maintenance is scheduled during the portion of the year when usage is at a minimum and will provide the least inconvenience to our guests since the restrooms will need to be closed.

No Smoking signs are posted in both restrooms as well as other signs stating that no smoking is allowed in any of our buildings. This is also stated in the park brochure that each guest receives upon check in.

The shower that was down in the men's restroom was reported to park management by the guest that was using it at the time of the failure and it was repaired within 4 hours after this report.

The buildings near the pond are not abandoned. two are trailers that are used by groups as stages when reunions and other events are held at the park. One building is our "Saloon" that is also used during such events. these buildings a made to look old and rustic in the setting of the western days of West Texas. Many of our guests use the "Saloon" as a photo op and the post card of it is one of our best selling postcards.

The vehicle that you mentioned is parked in the very back of our property well away from any guest services and belongs to one of our long term guests who uses it regularly as a work truck. It has current registration and is not a derelict vehicle.

We appreciate your comments especially with regards to our staff.

Off the highway a short distance to make for a quiet night. Office staff very friendly. Restaurant on site serves well-prepared comfort food. Pecan cobbler with ice cream for desert was great!

What a pleasant surprise to pull in and be welcomed by a staff that was so efficient. All spaces are large. Ours was 100'. We went to the on-site cafe for dinner and breakfast. The meals were great and the staff were so happy to be there and you could just tell it was a well run RV park. We would recommend this to everyone.

Terrific place for an over night stay. Sites are level and even. Traffic pattern very well designed. Staff was efficient and friendly. Far enough from I-10 that noise not bad.
