Fort Stockton was going to be a stop off place on our way to Carlsbad, NM. We weren't sure of even staying there because so many of the RV Parks on the RV park reviews were bad. We picked the Fort Stockton RV Park because it seemed like the best one there... We were right!!! It was very nice and the people running it were great. We had 50 Amp, water & sewer plus both At&T & Verizon worked good there. As an added bonus they had a restaurant right on the grounds for people who stayed there... The food was very good (home cooking)! The other RV Parks are pretty dumpy especially Parkview. So if you stop here beware... We had to go into town which was pretty run down BUT we found out they had a Historic District with the FORT so we made a decision to stay another night and take in the area. Glad we did! They are trying very hard to make there town a better place for visitors to come to but they have a long way to go. This is Paisano Pete (Worlds Largest Roadrunner standing 11' tall & 22' long) welcoming you to the city.
The Annie Riggs Memorial Museum was originally the Riggs Hotel built in 1899. It is an excellent example of Territorial Architecture built of adobe with Victorian wood trim, and houses exhibits on area history.
Historic Fort Stockton (1867-1886) is the main focus of this tour... On the grounds is the Guard House, parade field, 3 remaining Officers Quarters that are left (homes) and the enlisted men's barracks (which has a museum in it)...
Until Later... Have FUN, Travel Safe & Enjoy Everyday!
