Hilltop RV sits on a low hill overlooking the Texas desert planes near Fort Stockton. It is a full featured RV park with all the expected amenities. The park features some great folk art and a lovely garden area near the office. All in all, it’s a very solid RV park and worth the asking price.
- Great Artwork and garden
- Full hookups
- Private bathrooms
- Dusty if the wind picks up
We were only at Hilltop RV as a stop over for two nights before heading to Big Bend National Park. While it is true to its name, the view from the hilltop is not especially grand. It overlooks a lot of flat desert terrain. Sunset and Sunrise are the exceptions as you have a pretty grand view of it from the edges of the park property. Since it is in a desert all the lots are entirely gravel. The only lawns are surrounding the office and swimming pool. If the wind picks up, the park can get pretty dusty as a result.
What it lacks in greenery it makes up for with charming folk art. A lot of RV parks are decorated with old farm equipment and the like, but Hilltop goes all in with some of its decorations. There is an old time general store, a huge chicken, and a pair of huge mariachi statues near the pool. A neat concrete amphitheater since near the office painted yellow and decorated with various symbols.
I was very happy with the private toilets and showers which were clean and in good working order. The wireless and cell service were also better than average here, likely due to its hilltop location and it being a relatively small park. There is a fair sized pool, though it was closed for the winter season while we were there. All in all, we had a very nice stay at Hilltop RV and the price was well in keeping with its offerings. If you are in the Fort Stockton Area, I think it’s the best park to stay at.
