Camelot Village RV Park Overview:

Review and Rating of Camelot Village RV Park in Lubbock

Located on the southwest side of Lubbock, Camelot Village is a perfect place to plant the RV if you want to explore Lubbock and the surrounding area or check on how your kids at doing at Texas Tech.  Camelot has easy access to the freeway that goes around the city as well as one that heads to the University, downtown, and the entertainment district.

The Park is very clean and well maintained and has a mixture of pull through sites and back-in sites, all of which are full hook-up. The majority of the 193 sites are for full timers and monthly renters but there are 10 pull through sites reserved for daily use.  Tents are not allowed.

The roads and sites are all paved and it’s easy for big rigs to maneuver in and out of their site.  There is limited shade provided by a scattering of trees.  The staff is friendly, helpful, and out to make sure your stay is enjoyable.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Camelot Village RV Park has 193 sites that have full hook-ups – water, sewer, and 20/30/50 AMP service.  The sites are a mixture of pull-thourghs (very spacious at 35’ by 80’) and back-ins that are 30’ by 60’.  The sites are concrete, almost perfectly level, and the hook-ups are toward the rear of the site – in some sites your may need connection extensions.  We had a long pull through and the hook-ups were toward the middle of the site which made for an easy and convenient hook-up.  Each site also has a large concrete patio pad, a picnic table, and a grill.  Between each site is grass.  Some of the back-in sites surround a large grassy common area and some also have a small storage shed. 

Some of the amenities at Camelot Village RV Park include:

  • A pool and lounge chairs
  • Laundry facilities
  • Covered patio with tables and chairs
  • A storm shelter
  • Storage sheds for some of the sites
  • Private individual bath rooms with a shower, sink, and toilet

Wi-Fi and cable are not available.

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

We stopped at Camelot Village RV Park to break up the tip home after spending 10 days of fun in New Mexico.  We got in late that night and were too tired from the previous 10 days to do anything.  However, the next day we played golf at The Rawls Course at Texas Tech – wow, what a spectacular golf course that’s got a fantastic links style layout, excellent conditions, reasonable rates, and some very fun and challenging holes.  Read our review of The Rawls Course to learn more.

Following golf and a dip in the pool, we headed to the Depot – one of the entertainment districts of Lubbock and close to the University.  We enjoyed a great steak and salad and some good music at Triple J Chophouse and Brew Company.  The singer, I missed his name, played a good guitar and sang a little bit of everything from Buddy Holly (after all, Lubbock is his home town) to Bob Wills to the Beatles to Billy Joe Shaver to Neil Diamond.  Triple J is also a brewery and it was fun sampling some of their craft beers. 

From there we walked across the street for some live music at The Blue Light but didn’t stay long – we’re not big fans of blues.  So we headed around the corner to another bar but they had a jazz band – again, we’re not big fans.  You would think that in Lubbock it would be easy to find some country or at least some Buddy Holly – maybe on the weekends!

The next day we had to finish the drive back home to Austin.

Cool Nearby Activities:

Unfortunately, we didn’t have any time to explore Lubbock but here are some things that we were told to make sure that we visit next time and other things to do:

  • Play some golf – here is a map with the Lubbock Golf Courses
  • Enjoy the nightlife – the Depot is the major area for bars, music, fun, and food
  • Check out the Buddy Holly Center – a must if you like Buddy
  • Explore the Texas Tech Campus – biking around the campus would have been fun

Texas Outside Campground Rating System

Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”.  Each park is rated on:

  • Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
  • Park Condition:  the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
  • Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
  • Campsites:  low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
  • Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
