“Nice shady spots; pretty park; no Verizon signal”
Reviewed Oct 18, 2018
We were coming to Wellington, Texas for NomadFest 2018 and thought we'd stop at this park before checking into the conference itself the next day. Since there were no reviews of this site up on Campendium, we weren't really sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the park was.
First, the important part – this park is in some sort of blackhole in Verizon's coverage, and despite it showing on the coverage map as being a place you'll get full bars, this is a lie. :-p It varies between "No Service" and 1 bar with 1x extended. With our WeBoost, we got it up to 3G with a couple of bars, and sometimes over to LTE, but honestly, it wasn't worth much no matter what the signal strength said it was.
Luckily, we have AT&T too, and with that, we were set to go. Without the booster, we had a couple of bars and 4G data; with the booster, we had full bars and 4G-LTE data. It zipped right along, allowing us to stream and work without causing any problems.
Sprint registered nothing, with or without the booster.
Okay, second most important part: Amenities. :)
- Dump station – free for all
- Power and water at all sites; the 30 amp sites were $10 a night; the 50 amp sites were $15 a night
- Sites were pull-thru
- Flush-toilet restrooms; no showers
- Trash cans throughout to throw your trash away
- No picnic tables or fire rings at the sites themselves, but there were pavilions and tables spread throughout the park
- Playground equipment for the kids (slide, swings, teeter-totters)
- Huge shade trees everywhere
- Level sites and large enough for the biggest rig to pull into without a problem
- Lots of green grass and wide-open spaces to run around on
- Verizon not working, of course
- Stickers everywhere. If you have a dog, just know that you're going to spend a lot of time picking stickers out of its fur and paws. Our cat was fine but then again, cats are more careful about where they put their feet :-p
- The sites are very confusing. It feels like they're trying to smoosh two campers into every spot where normally only one would go, based on where they put the electric poles. It wasn't very busy while we were there so we didn't have to cozy up to anyone, but if the park is crowded, expect to have very little elbow room
- If you have solar, you're going to be hard pressed to find a site that gives you enough sunlight, but then again, these are all electric sites so just forget the solar panels. ;)
Head's up – Google Maps was trying to send us out from Wellington, past this park a few miles, and then take a U-turn and come back. That is not necessary. There is a way to cross over from your lane to the park without a problem. No need to take a detour miles out of your way. :)
Overall, come enjoy the park. There's not much to do here so it'll probably just be a stopover for you, but it's easy access and set-up, so it makes it a good place to stay for a night or two.
