Campground Review: Seminole City Park Seminole, TX

I spent the weekend at the Escapee's "The Ranch" RV community in Lakewood, NM.  I didn't do a review because there's not much to it, but, as always, the residents were very nice and welcoming.  From there I drove three hours through Hobbs, NM to the small town of Seminole, TX.  Incorporated in 1906, Seminole is a town of about 6400 and the county seat of Gaines County in west Texas.  The city park there has free 3 day RV parking with free electric and sewer hookups.

Just call that number and a city employee comes by and.....


...opens the padlock on the free electric and sewer hookups!
Here's the campground data:

Millenicom reception:                4 out of 4 bars

Seminole City Park is a very quiet park that the city police drive around multiple times during the day.  It has a large number of oak and other trees that would shade the actual RV sites during the hotter part of the year. 

No leaves now but plenty of shade later in the year.
One caveat if you are planning to overnight at the park is the size of the sites themselves.  Rigs longer that 30-32 feet would have a tough time squeezing into these back in sites as might be seen in this side photo of the Tank in it's spot.

Large Class A's might overhang into the side street.

Seminole City Park isn't really a camping destination but if you are passing through it's an excellent full hookup overnight in a nice little west Texas town at an outstanding value -- free!
