Midessa Oil Patch RV Park Overview:

Midessa Oil Patch RV Park is located less than a quarter of a mile from I-20 and about half way between Midland and Odessa, making this RV park a convenient place to stay if you're passing through or want to explore the West Texas Permian Basin. 

This Texas RV park and campground has a good mixture of full hook-up RV sites, tent sites, some camping cabins, and some amenities.  The roads are paved and wide enough for big rigs to easily maneuver.

Midessa Oil Patch RV Park is quiet (outside of some faint freeway noise), family and pet friendly, and is clean and well maintained.  The staff is very helpful and out to help make sure your stay is enjoyable.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Midessa Oil Patch RV park has 125 sites that are a mixture of tent sites, back-in, and pull-throughs.  The sites are side-by-side with level crushed gravel pads, a concrete pad with a picnic table, and conveniently located hook-ups for water, sewer, and electric.  Sites are long, 60 to 75 feet,  wide enough for quad slides, and easy to pull into.  A scattering of trees provide shade.  And each site has a small grassy area. 

Tent sites have water and electric and back up to a county road.  If you don't have an RV or tent or need some extra camping space for friends or family, then the log cabins at Midessa Oil Patch RV Park are perfect.  Each cabin has AC/heating, a picnic table, a grill, and a front porch with a swing.  There are 4 one room cabins with a double bed, a bunk bed, and a table with satellite TV.  The only two bedroom cabin will sleep six and it has a double in one bedroom and the other bedroom has two bunk beds.  You'll need to supply linens.  

Some of the amenities you'll find at Midessa Oil Patch include:

  • swimming pool
  • playground with a swing set, tether ball, and teeter-totters
  • half basketball court and horseshoe pit
  • a covered pavilion with a large BBQ
  • fenced in pet area
  • dump station and propane gas
  • a covered court yard overlooking the playground
  • 24 hour laundry room and restrooms and showers
  • a room for special events

The Midessa Oil Patch office is home to a small convenience store with a variety of staples and basic food items, ice, mail service, and some souvenirs.

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

We have enjoyed a stay at Midessa Oil Patch RV park a couple times - once when we were passing through on our way to Big Bend and another time on a trip to California.  During our California trip we stayed a couple days so we could play golf and explore some of the Midland Odessa attractions. 

We enjoyed a round of golf at Ranchland Hills Golf Club - an 18 hole golf course with good conditions, some fun holes, and an affordable price. 

We also spent some time at the Petroleum Museum and enjoyed it.  The Museum is very well done with some interesting information on the petroleum industry and some of it's history.  You'll see some impressive displays, interactive exhibits, plus a section of the museum dedicated to art and another with an excellent display and history of Midland's Chaparral race cars.

Cool Nearby Activities:

Midland is home to a couple good golf courses, like Hogan Park and Ranchland Hills, and you can find them as well as our golf course reviews on our Midland Golf Course map.

Check out our Midland Odessa Map to find some things to see and do in the area.  Most of what we found were museums. 

About 30 minutes west of Odessa is Monahans Sandhills State Park which is a fun place to visit.  It is 3840 acres of wind sculptured living sand dunes, some of which are up to 70 feet high.  You can hike in the dunes, take a leap off the tops or roll down, or better yet rent a sand disc and slide down the dunes.  Kids will love it.

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
