Lonesome Dove RV Park and Camp near Stephenville is a perfect rural-setting getaway that’s just a stone’s throw from your house. It sits on 10 country acres, on the left about two miles outside the city limits on the Lingleville Hwy. 

Owner Lana Wise Smith recently received approval for the addition of 14 new R.V. spaces at the Erath County Commissioners Court meeting on May 9. That addition will bring her total to 28 spaces.

Smith says she expects the work on the new spaces − which will include more pull-throughs − to be completed in November.

“We opened in the spring of 2016,” she says, “with the idea to offer folks comfort and convenience. Our philosophy is to enjoy the quiet, simple pleasures of life and we think it will suit our guests, just like it does us.”

She continues, “We give people the modern comforts they need, and the access to the things they need − all in a relaxing setting in one of the prettiest parts of the Lone Star State.

“We hope people will take a look around on our website and Facebook page, then gather up their gear, bring their horses and come sit a spell.”

She adds, “It’s very quiet out here; it’s off the road a bit and people can come here and just listen to nature. Plus there is a very nice horse facility in walking distance.”

Smith says Lonesome Dove offers both 30 Amp and 50 Amp hookups − the 30 Amp is $375 a month and the 50 Amp is $400.
