Fort Stockton to Van Horn, Texas
Desert Willow RV Park
Distance: 125 miles
Duration: 1 night
Weather: Sunny and hot (80s)
We had an uneventful drive along I-10 with (thankfully!) no wind to speak of. We didn't have a very long drive, but it would have been too far to go all the way to our next destination, so we opted to stop for the night in Van Horn.
Beautiful clouds over the mountains.
Very basic park. Full hook-ups, but
no picnic table or trees for shade (or privacy).
A hitching post for your horse?
Trying desperately to keep the RV cool!
No noisy neighbors, but the train tracks are right
behind those buildings and we heard them all night.
I suppose they can't all be gorgeous RV parks with pools, pickleball courts and curbside trash pick-up. At $14 a night (using our Passport America membership), this no-frills park was clean and tidy and for one night, we really can't complain. Easy access from I-10 and a very friendly manager, whom we probably should have asked for lunch recommendations rather than trying Chuy's without checking the online reviews. I can't remember the last time I had such a terrible meal. The beer was even flat!
It appears that the park is under new management and is now called Wild West RV Park. I wonder if they have any plans to plant some trees or shrubs. Or, maybe they'll just add a few tumbleweeds between sites. ;)
