Nice park. Internet need a serious upgrade because it?s a joke.
This was the best RV park I saw in the area. Managers were helpful and courteous. Only problem was the poor wifi.
Hated my Stay there
I was a long term resident this park for a job in the sleepy little town of Alpine. During my career I have worked many contracts and stayed at more than my fair share of RV parks and I have never encountered a park that charged as if they were a resort. The park has 93 spaces which are ample for parking but don't let the 95 feet space fool you, it isn't really for you to use. I was told I had to my my pull vehicle simple because it would be to RV in one space. They offer nothing but inflated electrical rates for long term resident My light bill could be well over 100 bucks per month during the winter months. 17 cents a kilowatt is extremely high. their bathrooms are clean however they clog easily,Internet overpriced and SLOW less than 1/2 the speed of dial up. Hughes claims the only way they would have that slow of a connection is by throttling the connection. $30 a month is ridiculous for that level of access. One of their management is the rudest person I have encountered in a RV park setting. They are not interested in good customer service. here the customer is always wrong. I would not recommend this park to anyone other than an overnight stay at an overpriced trailer park. Buyer beware
I can see stars from here!
The Lost Alaskan is a big rig friendly park at the edge of Alpine, Texas. The park is easy to get to when passing through Alpine, and the registration process is friendly and easy. A great first impression.
The sites are arranged in long rows, and most sites are pull-throughs, making it very convenient for overnights - or lazy parkers like myself. The roads are packed gravel, and the long and decently wide sites are gravel as well. There are nice pine trees throughout the park.
A nice feature of the park is their dog area near the entrance to the campground. There are also a lot of grass around the perimeter of the park, which gives it a nice feel. The laundry room sufficient for task at hand. I never look inside the bathhouse, as I have one of those in my RV :) There is also a pool that appears to be open only during the summer.
My only two gripes - the internet provider is HughesNet, which means you get a long list of "don't do this" when you check in, and you can make a sandwich between clicks because of the latency. Verizon 3G service made up for that shortcoming, and Verizon cell service was strong.
The other issue we had was extremely low water pressure. I think they know about it, as we were told "we have the water pressure regulated, so you don't really need a regulator". They were right. I could run faster than their water flowed. But, we have an RV, so we simply used the water pump to supplement the low pressure.
The "chocolate mint on your pillow" for the night ended up being their "star gallery", which was a cheesy wooden enclosure with chairs inside. At night, you walk in to the enclosure and look up to be treated to the most amazing view of the south Texas sky. The little enclosure did an amazing job of blocking out the little campground lights, and gave more stars as a result. Fun, cheesy, perfect for an night walk. Loved it.
I recommend this park for a night, week, or month - as long as the Verizon 3G service hangs in. Cute little town.
