Buck Creek RV Park, Abilene Texas

We decided to give the Buck Creek RV Park a try for an overnight in September, 2009 instead of our usual overnight stop at the KOA.

The pull-thrus were very long and fairly level.  We camped here in a 5th wheel and the hook-ups, although there were two sets at each site were not conveniently located if you wanted to stay hooked up to your tow vehicle.  Perhaps this type of set up worked better for the large motor homes, of which there were a few spending the night.  The park is located off of I-20 on the westbound side at exit 294.  Once you exit, the 1/4 mile road to the park is a narrow dirt road.  Luckily no traffic was coming out of the park since there is really only room for one vehicle at a time on this road.  The fellow checking us in was friendly and did give us a 10% TSD Texas Saver Discount (a membership card obtained for free in various Texas and New Mexico RV guides) discount upon presentation of the membership card.  The regular camping charge here for the pull-thru with 50amp service is $30.  Wi-fi worked fine but there was no cable TV.  We used our antenna and received local channels.  The restrooms are located in a metal shed building.  Although clean, the trash cans were overflowing as well as overflowing dumpsters on the premises.  A stray dog ran through the campground during our stay.  He was friendly but wouldn’t leave us and our own dog alone.  Resident campers told us this dog was a stray and they were trying to shoo him away.  All things considered we would not stay at the Buck Creek RV Park again.  The KOA is a few dollars more expensive but worth the difference for a better run park.  325-691-0398  buckcreekrvpark.com
